Peace Now Leader: Hamas will Accept Peace with Israel


Secretary-General Yariv Oppenheimer of Peace Now said, Thursday evening, that one should not rule out cooperation between Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas.

Interviewed for the "Gordon Talking" program at Gordon College in Haifa, Oppenheimer said, "I believe that if Hamas is in the Palestinian government, it will not support a [peace] agreement [with Israel] but will accept it." He added, "The Hamas of today is not the Hamas of ten years ago."
