PA rep in Tehran says Israel behind all evil; Hamas urges more terrorism

From FARS News:
Palestinian Ambassador to Tehran Salah al-Zawawi took the Zionist regime responsible for the miseries and damages inflicted on the Muslim world, and called on all Muslims to double their efforts to reinvigorate their unity and solidarity.

"Israel is the root cause of whatever (problem) is happening in the Muslim world and the problems of Muslims will not be solved, but through unity based on the holy Quran and (Prophet Mohammad's) tradition," Zawawi said in a meeting with Iranian Islamic Culture and Guidance Minister Seyed Mohammad Hosseini in Tehran on Saturday night.
 Or, as the NYT's Ethan Bronner would interpret it, "two state solution."

Meanwhile, another Iranian news agency quotes a Hamas leader:
Senior Hamas official Mushir al-Masri said that unleashing the West Bank resistance forces and ending security coordination is the best response against Israeli settlement.
I think that peace is right around the corner. If only Israel would make a few more concessions, these guys will be happy!
