So Hamas wants an end to the blockade as a precondition for a cease-fire....
I'm sorry, it's inappropriate to laugh at such a time, but that precondition is laughable. Hamas will only use the removal of the blockade to
bolster their armory. Why on earth would Israel ever agree to that?
So it's not difficult to predict Israel's response. Though, let me make one comment. What a clever tactic! I mistook Hamas for being careless -
which they of course are in regard to human life - but starting an issue with Israel and then 'begging' for a cease-fire, as CNN has on their front
page, certainly creates the perception that Israel is just mindlessly hammering away at enemy that wants to 'put up the white flag'.
Unfortunately, the removal of the blockade essentially amounts to a TEMPORARY cease-fire until Hamas is more adequately equipped to take on the IAF.
