Anti-Aircraft Missiles in Gaza, Israel Off Map

Hamas has acquired anti-aircraft missiles in Gaza. These are Russian-made Strela missiles most likely from Iran that made their way to Gaza through Egypt. They are a threat to patrolling the border of Gaza as well as to Israel's Ben Gurion airport.

Besides this, Abbas is showing a map without Israel. This doesn't sound like a man to work with in regards in engaging in peace.

US President Obama has condemned the existence of maps like the one Abbas displayed as a "security" threat to Israel:
"I will never compromise when it comes to Israel's security... Not when there are terrorist groups and political leaders committed to Israel's destruction. Not when there are maps across the Middle East that don't even acknowledge Israel's existence."

Yes President Obama, I don't believe that Abbas is sincere about making peace with Israel. It doesn't look like it would work anyway, with Hamas bent on destroying Israel. The two groups have got to want peace and have face to face discussions about it.
