Jerusalem, Feb. 8, 2006
Khaled Meshaal, the political leader of the Palestinian militant group Hamas, said Wednesday that a long-term truce with Israel would be possible, if it accepted conditions including a return to its 1967 borders.
However, they rejected demands by their Egyptian hosts to recognize Israel, describing recognition as out of the question,..

The leader of Hamas says his Palestinian militant group is offering Israel a 10-year truce if it withdraws from all lands it seized in the 1967 war.
Khaled Mashaal says he made the offer to former President Carter in talks on Saturday.
Mashaal says Hamas would accept a Palestinian state limited to the lands Israel seized in 1967 — an implicit acceptance that Israel would exist alongside that state.
But Mashaal says the group would never outright formally recognize Israel.
That visit of Carter was a huge political success, yeah :)
