The Hamas terrorist organization rejects the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. This position was recently underscored by Hamas leaders at a military parade through the streets of Gaza City.
Heavily armed and masked, the Hamas soldiers declared themselves the enemies of Israel, and vowed to prevent any peace with the Zionists.
Hamas is today under increasing pressure after the fall of its Muslim Brotherhood allies and sponsors in Egypt. The group has felt the squeeze as the Egyptian army cracks down on Islamists in the neighboring Sinai Peninsula. Hamas is suspected of aiding the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamists in attacks on Egyptian soldiers.
The military parade in Gaza was meant to demonstrate to local residents that Hamas is still firmly in control, and that its might should not be tested.
