Hamas and Egypt are at odds over an unconfirmed cease-fire deal with Israel, Walla! News reports Tuesday—after Cairo refused to add to the terms of its mediation unprecedented “conditions” tempering the move.

Hamas, which has rejected not one, but three separate ceasefire attempts, called on Israel over the past week to submit to a number of “conditions”—or demands—in return for an end to the violence against Israelis. The calls were accompanied by threats against the Israeli people, made through a series of weakly-worded text messages.

These “conditions” include, among other things, greater access to international waters, reopening of border crossings, and relaxation of trade restrictions; release of terrorists who were re-arrested during and after Operation Brother’s Keeper earlier this month; and the possibility of constructing an international airport from Gaza. Israel rejects these demands for their potential to re-arm Hamas and enable it to make stronger ties with its Iranian and Arabian contacts. …

I think Israel ought to make a few conditions itself.

First one should be that all Hamas leaders be delivered in chains to the Israeli border.

Everyone knows what Hamas “demands” really are.

Kill every Jew in Israel, and claim it for the Caliphate.

US, UN pushing hard for immediate cease-fire in Gaza [Israel]

“If Hamas really wants a cease-fire, I am sure that we can get to that, but they don’t want one,” Netanyahu tells Sky News Arabic; Arab TV reports say humanitarian cease-fire in Gaza imminent.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, in an interview with Sky News Arabic, pointed out that Israel accepted an Egyptian proposal for a ceasefire last week. That proposal called for an immediate end to the violence, followed 48 hours later by negotiations regarding a more lasting agreement. Part of the proposal called for Palestinian Authority security officers, rather than Hamas men, to man the border crossing with Rafah.

In addition to that proposal, Israel – Netanyahu said – also accepted shorter “humanitarian” cease-fires brokered over the last few days first by the UN, and then by the Red Cross. In each case, he said, Hamas violated the cease-fire.

“If Hamas really wants a cease-fire, I am sure that we can get to that,” he said. “But they don’t want one.”

One government official said that while Israel was ready for a cease fire, “Hamas cannot come out of a ceasefire looking like a victor. Israel would be skeptical of any proposal that could be seen as a victory for Hamas.”

Israel is aligned with Egypt over crushing Hamas, as they both want this!

Kill every Jew in Israel, and claim it for the Caliphate.

After they kill every Jew, they'll kill every Christian. See Iraq for details.

After that, they'd proceed to killing each other.

Nope; there are still Buddhists, Hindus, Communists et al after that. (Only one on that short list is a mirror image of Islam, albeit the atheistic version.)

They don’t both want it. The MB is too big in Egypt to purge even still; not even Mubarak could do that.

Not too many Buddhists or Hindus (or Zoroastrians, or Odinists or ..) in Israel.

That’s OK. Islamonazi activity is not limited to the Levant, by far.

They’re doing a good job of it in a Egypt as the former Muslim Brotherhood President of Egypt was deposed and then jailed, along with a nationwide jailing of leaders.

If Egypt doesn’t want to crush Hamas ... they are being extremely good actors at getting people to believe so ... LOL ...

True ...

Still, they eventually resort to killing each other. The end-game of Islamism is one man, the Last Man in the World, badly wounded, standing on a mountain of bloody corpses, shrieking "Allah Ackbar!!!"
