Hamas warns of violence unless Israel negotiates

Hamas sources warned on Thursday that if Israel did not begin its negotiations with the Palestinians, they would return to their armed struggle. Furthermore, Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh announced in his inauguration on Wednesday that all members of his government were "potential shahids (martyrs)." On the other hand, a Hamas spokesman told the British Guardian on Thursday that the terrorist organization did not intend to return to committing suicide bombing against Israel, as it only gave the IDF an excuse to kill Palestinians, according to the spokesman.
