Hamas chief rejects peace plan, vows more attacks
'"The road map aims to assure security for Israel at the expense of the security of our people. It is a plan to liquidate the Palestinian cause (for independence). It is rejected by us," Sheikh Ahmed Yassin told Reuters in Gaza City.'

Unfortunately this assessment is only too accurate. The PLO is a tragedy as it cannot consistently focus on and commit to its fundamental goal: withdrawal of all Israeli soldiers and settlers from the Occupied Territories and the establishment of a Palestinian State on those territories. Time and again it will be a party to a 'peace process' which aims at nothing of the sort.
