Now is the time to finish them off if they’re squealing for an ‘unconditional’ cease fire, IMO.

Agreeing to a ceasefire is one thing; them living up to it when it’s no longer convenient is another

In other words...”we need time to re-arm and re-group.”

But they're crossing their fingers, so it just means they've agreed to holler uncle for now until they have time to rearm.

This means they want the IDF to stop attacking them until they can regain their strength - then the rockets and mortars against Southern Israel will resume

Not sure what an “unconditional ceasefire” actually means — is it a surrender? Do the IDF get to confiscate their weapons? Do the IDF occupy the entire region?

Tells me the Israeli’s are winning, Big Time.

I hope they don’t let up, because if they do we will be watching this play out once again within 18 months, tops.

Not interested in “unconditional cease fire”.

Unconditional surrender, on the other hand.

Yes but has Iran and the Hamas “leadership” signed off. Otherwise it’s a ruse.
Iran was threatening to pull the plug on the monies to Hamas if they did agree to the Egyptian ceasefire plan.

So let’s wait and see. Besides, have the Israelis reached their objectives? We don’t know.

How many rockets fell on Ashkelon and S'derot during the last "cease fire;" wasn't it about 7,500?

Israel must reject this and finish them off. It will only give them time to regroup and re-arm.

Maybe I'm dumb, but I don't grasp the concept of an unconditional cease-fire.

Unconditional surrender? Sure, that makes a lot of sense.
Unconditional cease-fire? "Uhhhhh, we will stop shooting but we haven't lost -- OK?" What kind of concept is that?

I’m sure a Hamas declaration of victory will be forthcoming soon. (Yeah I’ve seen this movie before)

Fine. The conditions are as follows:

Every hamas member reports to the first available IDF patrol unarmed with his or her hands up.

hamas disbands as an organization.

Pvt. Shalit is released immediately.

All rockets, mortars, bombs, guns, ammunition, knives, pointy sticks, etc possessed by hamas members or any of their designees are turned over to the IDF immediately.

That'll do for a start.

If these conditions are not agreed to publicly, in writing in Arabid-no ceasefire.

Do they mean it, I wonder? Or are they just trying to give the international community one more way to criticize Israel, assuming they continue the operation?

Agree. With these types, just surviving is reason to declare victory. Hamas needs to be destroyed utterly.

"Not sure what an “unconditional ceasefire” actually means."

They obviously don't know either. "Agreeing" to an unconditional cease fire only applies if your opponent has offered one. The Israelis haven't.

must be out of rockets... need time to reload...

if Israel goes along with this, it should be with the understanding that a single mortar fired under the cease-fire will unleash hell...

Won’t work, they said “unconditional” which means Israel doesn’t get to set any conditions.

Hoping Israel insists on very specific conditions.

Hmmm... unconditional, eh?

OK, sign this treaty stating that the Israeli state is a legitimate entity and will be recognized as such, and that any rocket attack from a Hamas controlled area will be deemed to be an authorization for complete extermination of ever member of Hamas.

There ya go.
