Another Hamas cease fire rumor bites the dust

Kindly note:
The Hamas movement on Sunday adamantly denied reports that they had proposed a ceasefire with the Israelis in exchange for an Israeli commitment to halting the targeted assassinations of Hamas leaders.
Does it sound familiar?
Hamas does not want peace. They do not want a cease fire on any reasonable terms. Yet rumors to the contrary surface every week, and are predictably shot down by the Hamas after a few days. The will to believe is very strong among journalists, or perhaps it is a a plot of evil Zionists and decadent Westerners to discredit the Hamas. The Hamas is a righteous and upstanding violent and genocidal organization who espouse the Jihad. They are fighting for the right to kill the Jews, which is necessary to bring about judgement day. They won't stop until every Jew in Palestine is gone, one way or the other. Journalists should stop slandering them by suggesting that they want peace or a cease fire.

Hamas denies proposing a ceasefire agreement with Israel

Bethlehem - Ma'an - The Hamas movement on Sunday adamantly denied reports that they had proposed a ceasefire with the Israelis in exchange for an Israeli commitment to halting the targeted assassinations of Hamas leaders.

A spokesperson of Hamas, Sami Abu Zuhri, told Ash Sharq Al Awsat (Middle East) news agency that the news reports were completely false. He affirmed that Hamas calls for the protection of all Palestinian people, not just the movement's leaders.

Israeli media reported that the Prime Minister of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad ibn Jassim Bin Jabor Al Thani, had delivered a message from the head of the Hamas politburo, Khaled Mash'al, to Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, offering a ceasefire agreement. Israeli news reports claimed that Mash'al offered to cease projectile launching from Gaza at Israeli towns, in exchange for an end to the targeted assassinations of Hamas leaders.

"Israel must end hostilities towards the Palestinian people before we can talk about a ceasefire," said Abu Zuhri. He added that Hamas would never agree to a unilateral ceasefire, as the only beneficiary from such a deal in the past has been Israel.


The spokesperson refused to comment on the Israeli reports that the Olmert government is awaiting a list of prisoners that Hamas wants released in exchange for captured Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit, who was taken by three Palestinian factions a year ago.

"All I can say is that the occupation government bears sole responsibility for not achieving the deal so far," Abu Zuhri said.
