ABSTRACT
The article presents a reprint of the article "Acknowledging Israel's Right to Exist," which appeared in the December 2006 issue of the periodical "CounterPunch." It focuses on the demand to recognize Israel's right to exist. It states that the use of the demand as an excuse for not talking to a Palestinian leader is attributed to statesman Henry Kissinger. It argues that Hamas' recognition of Israel's right to exist would signify that the Palestinian government abandoned its goal of creating a viable state.
