Hamas Refuses International Cease-Fire Efforts - Again
inn ^ | 7/14/14 | Dalit Halevi, Tova Dvorin

Posted on 07/23/2014 12:54:06 PM PDT by Nachum

Hamas continues to be uncompromising in its position regarding an international cease-fire, AFP reports Wednesday.

"We reject today and will reject in the future," Hamas leader-in-exile Khaled Meshaal insisted, in a public speech in Qatar.

Meshaal insisted that Israel must accept his list of unprecedented conditions for a cease-fire - which included lifting several security measures, such as the naval blockade and border control, designed to prevent terrorists entering into Israel, as well as re-releasing terrorists arrested earlier this month - and only then will Hamas deliberate with Israel on a date for a cease-fire.

Meshaal claimed that the terms - which Palestinian sources stated are even more grandiose than what was leaked to the media - are "legitimate," and that Hamas would not stop firing rockets until Israel capitulated to its demands.

Meshaal also mocked Israel for agreeing to negotiations, claiming the cooperation with international powers shows the Jewish state is unnerved by the barrage of rocket fire.

He emphasized, in this context, that Hamas will not initiate any proposal for a cease-fire with Israel, and will continue to engage in political and diplomatic battle against it as well.

He repeated demands to permanently open border crossings into Gaza, although he said that it would not object to more temporary 'humanitarian cease-fires.'

He DID cause Hamas to clarify their position. Israel can continue to denfend its borders.

Yep! Israel should continue to pound hamass until they beg for a ceasefire. If anyone approaches with a ceasefire offer turn them away unless it is hamass.

This means that they perceive an important battle totally elsewhere from the ground war/rocket war. Perhaps they believe they can win over time the political war. Perhaps they are confidant (hopefully overconfident) about their missiles they are or might be holding back. Their statements begs the question if they have some other card up their sleeve...

Hamas will agree to a cease fire only when they run out of rockets and when they get a written guarantee for substantial post war aid from Obama/Kerry and other Western saps.

Didn’t the hero of Benghazi just decide to give them $45 mill for humanitarian aid.

It’s time to stop sending money in tot eh rat hole until they stop sending rockets into Israel. Every time a rocket is shot off add a month to no aid time frame.

IDF needs to eliminate Ham-ass this time ( and confiscate all their tens of thousands of rockets and their bomb factories)

Evil can only be tamped down, never destroyed. It intensifies in historical cycles. We are seeing the historical cyclical upswing.

we all know a Muzzie cease fire is worthless. That after the ceasefire the Muzzies will violate it in a hundred small ways and maybe some big ones. And that the UN/Obama/Eu will pressure Israel to not force the Muzzies to live up to the written terms

Since I am safely living in Qatar I refuse to negotiate a cease fire to stop the war in “my” country. We, by that I mean my people not me personally, will fight to the last man, woman and child against Israeli Zionist aggression. Maybe the Israelis could quietly send someone to Qatar to “negotiate” an end this man’s existence.

WW3 will start in that area. It is about to begin. All the Moozies will unite for the cause to fight Israel. Give it a little more time and watch.

If I was worth, per the Jordanian press, $2.1 billion, I’d be in Qatar too. Actually I’d probably be in Europe with Yasser’s wife. $2.1 billion, great industry, foreign aid to terrorists.

Thanks Nachum. Words from His Hindmost:
Hamas leader-in-exile Khaled Meshaal insisted, in a public speech in Qatar... that Israel must accept his list... which included lifting several security measures, such as the naval blockade and border control... re-releasing terrorists arrested earlier this month - and only then will Hamas deliberate with Israel on a date for a cease-fire... Meshaal also mocked Israel for agreeing to negotiations, claiming the cooperation with international powers shows the Jewish state is unnerved by the barrage of rocket fire.
Israel needs to erase Qatar and Meshaal with it. That would unnerve Iran, put the Gulf States on the straight and narrow, lead to a public tirade and probably a life-threatening stroke by Turkey's Erdogan, and no more life on the dole for the Arab squatters. Israel should then announce free one-way trips to the Islamic paradise of their choice for all the squatters in Gaza and the PA-occupied areas of eastern Israel.
