Amos Gilad discovers the truth

Amos Gilad

Amos Gilad, considered one of the most respected officials when it comes to Israeli security, has expressed his opinion on Hamas’ promises of a real truce as soon as Israel opens up crossings into Gaza and appeases all over the place. Gilad says whatever Hamas says – is a lie:

Both Hamas and Hizbullah will continue to seek Israel’s destruction and must not be granted any legitimacy, top security official Amos Gilad said Monday.

Speaking at a conference at the Interdisciplinary Center, the head of the Defense Ministry’s Diplomatic-Security Bureau said terror groups were “decent enough to say what they think – that Israel has no right to exist.” He said both Hamas and Hizbullah are “entities with an incredibly radical worldview, but they’re flexible in terms of timetable. For them, there is no such thing as defeat or surrender.”

“They are capable of agreeing to a 30-year ceasefire and violating it after 30 days,” he said. “Those who think that such agreements can serve as a basis for negotiation are wrong. We should never be tempted into strategic negotiations with Hamas.”

I just hope Israeli politicians were not surprised by this assessment. This is not news for any of us regular people.
