Why the Peace Process Is Doomed to Fail

Hamas has made short shrift of the ongoing peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians. On the West Bank Islamists are accusing Abbas of 'selling out to the Jews' 

"Allahu Akbar, destroy Israel, the VS, the UK and France!" 

Minutes after John Kerry last Friday declared that the peace negotiations will resume this week in Washington, Hamas' leader Sami Abu Zuhri rejected the idea. Hamas made clear that the rival Fatah government of the West Bank does not have the mandate to negotiate on behalf of "the Palestinian people" in general.
