Hamas in the footsteps of Fath

I have been writing for years in Arabic and English that Hamas is already on the footsteps of Fath--even in the corruption.  "Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal declared a position on Palestinian statehood that is nearly identical to that of his Fatah rival, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, in an interview with CNN aired Wednesday.  "I accept a Palestinian state according [to] the 1967 borders, with Jerusalem as the capital, with the right to return," the Hamas leader told Christine Amanpour in Cairo."  These are the words that were even used by Fath.  When the negotiations with the enemy begin, he will clarify that he wants only "symbolic right of return".  (thanks Khaled)
