Is U.S. Policy Good for Israel? Hamas Doesn't Think So

In an interview published in today's Jerusalem-based Al Quds newspaper, Yassin said that were it not for the latest suicide bombings, U.S. Secretary of State Albright would not have come to the Middle East and the negotiations would have remained at a standstill. Yassin declared yesterday in the Palestinian parliament in Gaza that the "Jihad against Israel will continue until the complete liberation of Palestine." The Hamas terrorist leader condemned Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat for signing an agreement with Israel, and said that Israel must disappear from the map.
