Hamas May Accept Statehood in West Bank

Yes you read that right…”Hamas May Accept Statehood in West Bank.”

From the AP:

RAMALLAH, West Bank – In an apparent change in long-standing policy, a top Hamas leader said Friday the militant group would accept the establishment of a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip as well as a long-term truce with Israel.

Hamas’ statement came as Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak described Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon as the Palestinians’ best chance for peace.

Could be a huge development…or more empty promises…
