Hamas’ political chief rejected Israeli conditions for a Gaza cease-fire Friday and demanded an immediate opening of the besieged territory’s borders, taking a tough line as he asked a summit of Arab countries to back him by cutting off any ties with Israel .
Despite the hard-line comments by the Syrian-based Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal, Israel and Egyptian mediators were expressing optimism a cease-fire could be reached. Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev said he was hopeful that Israel is “entering the endgame” on its Gaza offensive and that a “sustained and durable” stop to Hamas rocket fire on southern Israel was near.
He said Cabinet ministers could make a decision on a cease-fire as early as this weekend.
Israel wants a total end to Hamas’ rocket launches into Israel and an arms embargo on Gaza’s militant rulers. Hamas has demanded an immediate Israeli withdrawal from Gaza and the opening of blockaded border crossings.
“These are our demands and we don’t accept any political movement that does not accept them,” the movement’s top political leader, Khaled Mashaal, said in a televised address from his headquarters in Damascus, Syria.
A couple of things about this story struck me; ONE was the absolute cowardness of the Hamas leader. (just like the idiot Nasrallah of Hezbullshit) Khaled Mashaal went to Damascus when the fighting starts, then he talks real brave from the comfort of his hotel room under Syrian security or Iranian guard. He says shit like “We will make the streets run red with blood” unfortunately its all Palestinian blood.
The other thing that struck me was the end game comment. I would love to see an end game in this mess, but it needs to END with permanent solutions and the only way it happens now is a total removal of Islamic Radicals from the region. IF Israel wants peace they need to destroy their neighbors will to kill them, the way to do that is harsh, mean and nasty and it is needed.
We all thought Israel pulled out of Lebanon way too soon, they left way too many thugs still alive to fight. BUT; did you notice how fast Hezbollah said ” IT wasn’t us” when a few rockets went toward Israel? They don’t want to ride that train again no matter how much blustering they do in the media.
This is the truth. IF Israel was as “Oppressive” as it has been argued on my blog by the raghead sympathizing idiots then why would Hezbollah not assist? why would Egypt, Syria and Iran not be offering more in the way of support for the “Oppressed Palestinians”? I’ll tell you why; the Palestinians have made their bed and their so-called “Supporters” are not willing to actually FIX the problem they just want to continue the problem.
BTW I think Israel only has about 2 days left to meet their objections, those objections are easily met but since they are trying to do it as PC as possible they need to step it up. Obama takes office in less than 100 hours, and NOBODY knows where he stands on this issue.
Israel get to :shootin: and some shit up!
