Palestinian Chutzpah

Hamas makes an offer:

Hamas leader in Gaza, Mahmoud Zahar said that his movement would be willing to offer Israel a long-range cease-fire if Israel enables the establishment of a Palestinian state along the 1967 borders.

In a CNN interview, Zahar was not willing to commit to recognizing Israel's right to exist, nor did he reveal whether his movement intended on continuing to dispatch suicide bombers into Israel.

If Israel would comply to Hamas's demands to establish an independent state and release its prisoners, the Hamas would be willing to commit to a 10-15 year hudna in which they will examine Israel's intentions, Zahar said.

So here's the deal: the Palestinian Authority gets all of Gaza, Samaria, and East Jerusalem, and Israel gets a promise of 10-15 years of peace with only one of the region's several anti-Israeli terrorist groups, and no official recognition of its right to exist from the PA.

And people think Nigerian spam is untrustworthy.
