Brazil Will Back Hamas As Long As It Recognizes Israel

The Brazilian government says it will collaborate with any Palestinian government that wants peace and recognizes Israel’s right to exist.

Brazilian Foreign Minister Celso Amorim made the comments Thursday in response to published reports that Hamas – the Islamic group that won last month’s Palestinian elections – would seek financial and political support from Brazil.

But Amorim said Hamas has not contacted Brazil.

The United States and other countries have warned that they will curtail funding to a Hamas-led Palestinian government unless the group renounces violence and acknowledges Israel’s right to exist. 

Hamas has said it will not be pressured into recognizing Israel by what it calls international threats of blackmail over aid.

    Brazilians behold !!

    With such idiotic talk, you’ll end up as part of the AXIS OF EVIL.

    Brazil is getting ready to get fucked up by opening its mouth and talking bullshit.

    But then, here’s a one lifetime chance to do the so called “Congress cleansing”.

    I doubt USA will tolerate such position for much longer.
    Barzilians , you’ll get your asses whipped pretty badly.

    Lula and his “ministers” hardly know the trouble they are getting into with US.

    Just don’t piss off US, and don’t let the governmnet piss off US.

    Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

    You guys are on your own if the HAMAS shit is taken seriously by your goverment.

    I agree with guest #1. Try putting yourselves in Palestians’ shoes. Is it purely coincidental the fact that Jews have been either the cause or have constantly been involved in wars and persecutions throughout history? From Egptians and Iberians to “zhe Germans” and Arabs, Jews seem to always be where trouble is. What a coincidence, don’t you think? It takes “something” to get all these diverse and uncorrelated people crossed, at different points in time.

    Almost spot on
    You’re very close – just swap the words ‘Israel’ and ‘Palestine’ and replace Jews with Arabs and then you’ll have an accurate view of history.

    It all depends on how you see it…
    In 1948, Jews from all over the world converged onto Palestine and declared it Israel. Is that violence or what? Jews tend to get together in groups within circles of trust among themselves. Why not integrate and put aside religion for a while as normal human beings do? I reckon the state of Israel is nothing more than a Jew Taliban…
