Very, very evasive answers from Ismail Haniyeh in this WaPo interview. Every question led him to state Israel's position rather than Hamas'... The lack of clarity may be strategic, but it hardly encourages trust or even comprehension of Hamas' standards for peace. Maybe it's just too early in the game.
