Those Obstinate Israelis!

Al-Crapeeza brings Israel’s rejection of a Hamas offer for a ten-year truce as proof that Israel does not want peace.

Israelís rejection of a new offer for a cease-fire by Hamas again shows the total rejection with which Tel Aviv will greet any peace deal. The Hamas plan would provide for a protracted peace with Israel, in return for a full Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank, Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem. Hamas founder and spiritual leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin has said the movement would be willing to end armed resistance in return for a ìtrue and genuineî Palestinian state.

Hmmm…I wonder why Israel rejected it..

Hamas spokesman and co-founder Abd al-Aziz al-Rantissi told journalists on Sunday that the movement had come to the conclusion it was “difficult to liberate all our land at this stage, so we accept a phased liberation.”

“We accept a state in the West Bank, including Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip. We propose a 10-year truce in return for [Israel’s] withdrawal and the establishment of a state,” Reuters news agency quoted al-Rantissi as

saying.

He added that the proposal did not mean that Hamas has to recognize Israel or spell the belief in the end of the conflict to be true.

Mind you, we did accept Oslo, and that wasn’t even a ten-year truce…
