Hamas says Paris peace confab ‘absurd’

Hamas has blasted the international Paris peace conference which met on Sunday and called for Israel and the Palestinians to commit to a two-state solution, calling its method “absurd.”

“The Paris conference is a return to the absurd negotiating method that lost rights for the Palestinian people and gave legitimacy to the Zionist entity on the land of Palestine,” Hamas says in a press statement.

Hamas has rejected the idea of the Paris peace initiative since it was announced last year. Israeli officials boycotted the summit Sunday, calling it “pointless.”

The terror group in control of Gaza is openly committed to a violent campaign to destroy Israel. Israel believes only bilateral negotiations will be effective to reach a deal with the Palestinians.
