In their own words

I have long been an opponent of the so-called two-state solution (which really is a three state solution) to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and not for any reasons of Zionist/Jewish supremacy because it is a completely unworkable solution in the real world. Even if tomorrow the Israeli Prime Minister gave Palestinian Authority Chairman 100% of the West Back and the Gaza Strip with absolutely complete control over all resources, borders and airspace; it would only be a matter of time before once again missiles were flying into Israel and people were imploding on the streets. Of course, this time one might see a more conventional type warfare and I get those kinds of ideas by looking at what the popular Palestinian leaders say. Ynet News.
Senior Hamas member Mahmoud al-Zahar spoke Wednesday at a Gaza Strip event marking the 60th anniversary of the Nakba – the anniversary of the 1948 events which led to the induction of the State of Israel – and promised his listeners that "the right of return is closer than ever."

The events of the Gaza pullout and the Second Lebanon War, he added, proved that the Israeli military is not beyond defeat. "The Palestinians and the Arabs have crushed the Jews' assumption of supremacy… The Zionist legend of invincibility has been destroyed.

"Now more than ever I tell you – we will never recognize Israel… We will form the Palestinian state on all of Palestine's territories and the sun of liberty will burn the Zionists. To them I say – you will lose. You will leave and we will keep hounding you. The blood of our slain sons will haunt you forever," he said.

There is just no concept of sovereignty or borders for Jews with these people.
