Winners of most recent Palestinian elections vow to continue attacks

From Maan News:
Attacks by Hamas' armed wing will continue "in any form and in any place,” including inside Israel and in Gaza, a spokesman said Thursday.

The Al-Qassam Brigades claimed responsibility for killing four settlers in a drive-by shooting near Hebron on Tuesday evening, and for injuring two Israelis in a similar attack by Romodin Junction near Ramallah a day later.

Al-Qassam Brigades spokesman Abu Obeida said the second attack was "a slap in the face" for those who said the deadly shooting near Hebron would not be repeated.

Abu Obeida said the Ramallah shooting was timed "according to field circumstances" but added that it conveyed a message to negotiators who "conceded and went along with the forces of the occupation and made their efforts to chase the resistance fighters in the wake of the heroic Hebron attack. [...]
According to another Maan headline, "Islamic Jihad calls for more attacks." Will we now hear from all the leftists who have been insisting that Hamas is actually willing to make peace? As Gideon Levy once wrote, "You . . . don't make peace with half a people, in half of the territory."

Update: Angry Arab (whose salary is paid by US taxpayers?) comments on the peace talks:
Of course peace won't emerge from the masquerade in Washington, DC but will eventually emerge--but only after the demise of Israel and the elimination of Zionism from historic Palestine.
The man obviously thinks in Farsi, so maybe Juan Cole will tell us what he really meant.
