    So much for the "peace" that Israel has with Egypt.
    It's true colours are slowly being exposed, but exposed they will be. Hamas does not want peace, neither do the Palestinians, the simply want your misplaced sympathy so they can camourflage their true intentions. The total elimination and destruction of Israel.
    Document shows Hamas trying to strenghten ties with Egypt

    By Amos Harel, Ha'aretz Correspondent (Leftist paper)

    A document seized recently by the IDF in Gaza shows that the militant Hamas organization, which held discussions in Egypt two weeks ago with Fatah, saw the talks as a means to strengthen its ties with Egypt and to increase funding from the Palestinian Authority for terror attacks. The talks were seemingly aimed at halting the terror attacks against Israel, at least within the Green Line.

    The document, written November 12 by the Hamas' citizen support branch, is an internal pamphlet distributed to the organization's activists and to the Palestinian preventive security system in the Gaza Strip. The document was confiscated by the IDF last week in a raid on the preventive security headquarters, and its contents were analyzed by IDF Intelligence.

    According to an analysis by military intelligence, Hamas believes that the PA initiated the talks because of Hamas's recent increased popularity among Palestinians accompanied by a decline in the PA's power.

    "It's [the PA] position has been harmed, most of its institutions have collapsed, its infrastructure has been destroyed and its ranks are rife with division," the document says.

    Hamas also believes that the Fatah dialogue was a result of Egyptian pressure on the PA, which understood that the talks would have decisive consequences on the future of the PA and Chairman Yasser Arafat.

    The documents authors also outline the goals Hamas aimed to achieve at the talks. The first one is, "the establishment of a new foundation of connections with Egypt," based on the assumption that Egypt is examining the possibility of co-operating with Hamas as an alternative to the PA.

    "Egypt is examining the possibility of working with Hamas as an alternative or at least as the main powerbroker in the Palestinian street," the pamphlet goes on to say.

    Two other goals outlined are the building of Palestinian national unity and examination of the ways to continue the struggle against Israeli occupation. Regarding the organization's expectations from the PA, Hamas demands that the PA take part in "the protection of the Palestinian nation," give state-sponsored patronage to terror attacks and cease condemning them, and to stop security coordination with Israel.

    Security establishment sources believe the document shows that Hamas has no intention of halting terror attacks against Israel, and that the sole reason for the Cairo talks was to promote the organization's interests, as outlined. The pamphlet includes no mention whatsoever of any plans by Hamas to cease its suicide attacks inside Israel or even in the territories.
