35. I doubt that peace will be held up as a result of a Wolf Blitzer interview

I think however putting a Hamas official to the test as to whether he can be conciliatory or not can be revealing. What I found most important here was not that Hamden had this racist belief IN THE PAST. It was that he could not bring himself to drop it and renounce it in the present. When push comes to shove, he seems to be more in love with his old hatreds than in the idea of peace for his own people now. I wonder how many other individuals in Hamas feel that way. I've no doubt that the same is true for some in the Israeli-Likud leadership. As I stated, someone has got to make the first move for peace. Hamden could have shown leadership to his own people by denouncing the myths. Such acts by Arab leadership would put the onus on Israel to express their own words of conciliation.
