Palestinians: We Rejected Israel’s 90-Day Ceasefire Offer

They demand removing the blockade of the Israeli navy on Gaza.

Sources in the Hamas and Islamic Jihad leadership have told the newspaper Al-Hayat that Israel offered them a cease-fire for 90 days, during which it would examine their goodwill efforts prior to a discussion of Palestinian demands. But the Palestinians said they refused the offer, and stuck by their three points: a mutual ceasefire, an end to targeted assassinations and the opening all the entrances into Gaza as soon as the ceasefire takes effect. Those entrances include the Gaza port, which is blockaded by the Israeli navy.

The rejection came after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in Jerusalem. that “in the days ahead the United States will work with our partners here in Israel and across the region toward an outcome that bolsters security for the people of Israel, improves conditions for the people of Gaza and moves toward a comprehensive peace for all people of the region.”

All those nice things will have to wait. Or, as Prime Minister Netanyahu told Clinton: “If there is a possibility of achieving a long-term solution to this problem with diplomatic means, we prefer that, but if not, I’m sure you understand that Israel will have to take whatever action is necessary to defend its people.”

    I reject the very idea that Israel made those murderers an offer. The only controlling factor that a terrorists is willing to accept is a 9mm piece of copper.

  3. Lee Tibensky says:

    Today is a very sad day for Israel there will never peace with these people who hell bent on the total annihilation of the Jewish people. How many more Jews will now die because our leaders hold out hope for this preposterous fantasy of Peace. I will continue to Daven for the safety of all of my Jewish Brothers and Sisters who live in constant fear; may they all merit the protection of the Divine Presence.
