Palestinian PM is Paranoid

The Prime Minister of Palestine has accused the US government of trying to topple his goverment, now why would they want to do that?

Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas said on Sunday the United States was determined to bring down his government despite the Islamist group's standing offer of a long-term truce with Israel.

Haniyeh, speaking before talks in Damascus between Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah and Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal, reiterated that any such accommodation with Israel did not entail recognition of the Jewish state.

"We accept a Palestinian state on the lands (Israel) occupied in 1967, but in return for a long-term truce and not recognition," Haniyeh said in a speech.

Oh yeah. Because you're terrorist bastards who are blakmailing Israel out of even more land and in return you're going to stop killing them for a little bit, but not forever, and God forbid you recognize the state with which you're making a deal.
