Three Hamas comments

 Comment One:

 

Egyptian security services began investigating Palestinians in order to revoke their Egyptian citizenship that was granted during the reign of former president Mohamed Morsi.  Egyptian authorities plan on revoking the citizenship of 13,757 Palestinians that are under investigation, most of whom are affiliated with Hamas, according to security sources quoted in a report...

 

After reading that, why is Israel granting Israeli citizenship to Arabs from Judea and Samaria, even if they do marry local Arab women?

 

Comment Two:

 

Hamas and Fatah will hold meetings to discuss the implementation of a national reconciliation agreement...Fatah official Nabil Shaath and Hamas official Khalil al-Hayya said they considered reconciliation a top priority, and that an earlier meeting between a Fatah delegation and Gaza Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh was a success.
 
"We realize that the road to freedom and independence is still a long one and needs a lot of work, and the first step is Palestinian unity," Shaath said

 

Why should Israel agree to any peace agreement with the Palestinian Authority if that body is unrepresentative and Hamas will remain outside the framework?  Should not there be a Fatah-Hamas agreement before an Israel-PA agreement?

 

Comment Three:

 

Turning to Abu-Arar, [Minister of Housing Uri] Ariel said, “You who talk about the Western Wall, a remnant of the Holy Temple, you describe it as a wall that 'happens' to be there. How dare you have the chutzpah?...
 
“And then, your friend MK Mohammed Barakeh says that ‘There’s no Hamas here, except for one person.’ And who’s that Hamas member he found? Me,” said Ariel with a smile, adding mockingly, “I’ve been given the ‘privilege’ of being described by ‘Professor' Barakeh as a Hamas member.”
 
“Let me tell you,” Ariel told Barakeh, who heckled him, “In a normal place you’d be thrown out. But Jews are forgiving people. A person like you, who’d tell me, a government minister, that I’m a Hamas member, would be thrown out immediately. You will not speak this way to a minister. You should shut up and get out of here. We’re getting along fine without you.”
 
Ariel concluded, “I think we could get along fine without the Arab MKs but what can we do, they’re here.”
 

If Israeli Arabs, educated Arabs, Arab Members of Knesset, use the term "Hamas" this way, should they be in the Knesset?
