Cairo - Khaled Mishaal, the political bureau chief of the Hamas Movement, has affirmed that Palestinian resistance factions would continue capturing IOF troops similar to what they had done four months ago in a bid to swap them for Palestinian detainees languishing in occupation dungeons.
"As long as there are (Palestinian) captives, the resistance will continue to capture Zionist soldiers to exchange them for those captives who spent long years in occupation jails," Mishaal asserted.

You will also see that Palestinian militants affilitated with Hamas sent rockets over to Israel despite the cease fire.
And why PieMan and the other anti-Israeli crew aren't making posts about that is beyond me

So I guess in your book all Palestinians should be held responsible for these handful of idiots and israel should go back to killing innocent people again and give up the possibility of peace?

This is a good gesture and I hope a sincere one. It is obvious that Hamas may not be entirely in control of Palestine though. If so then a great deal of patience will unfortunately have to be shown by Israel to Hamas as yet once again some form of governmental control is unveiled over Palestine in hope of making an agreement that both sides can agree to and respect.

Olmert is agreeing ONLY to deal with Abbas and the Fateh party, rather than directly address the democratically elected party in power; Hamas.
Created in 1987 by Shaikh Ahmed Yassin of the Gaza wing of the Muslim Brotherhood at the beginning of the First Intifada, Hamas is known outside of the Palestinian territories chiefly for its suicide bombings and other attacks directed against Israeli civilians, as well as military and security forces targets. Hamas' charter (written in 1988 and still in effect) calls for the destruction of the State of Israel and its replacement with a Palestinian Islamic state in the area that is now Israel, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip. The charter states: "There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad."
