They meet again:
It’s been a long eight days. If it wasn’t almost winter here, we’d be singing ” Here comes the sun…”
Important and welcome (Carl Bildt is happy)
Who gains? Hamas
Who loses? Guess.
Who wins? Egypt.
If Iran wants to, they could break the truce through their surrogate partners, Islamic Jihad. They don’t want peace, they want victory
That’s it in a nutshell and you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to understand it: Israel Announces Ceasefire, Hamas Keeps Firing
Peace with Hamas? From Hamas’ own point of view, that would be a contradiction in terms. I don’t think that we’ll live to see the day when, from Hamas’ point of view any peace treaty with the Zionist entity (Israel) would not be in contradiction to the text and spirit of their Covenant, THE HAMAS CHARTER. Read and undertstand.
That’s Hamas in theory. You’ve seen them in action.
The latest Truce/ ceasefire? Very temporarily, temporary relief from having to run for cover. Much remains to be seen.
In the short run I’m sceptical.
History has shown.
For Hamas it is holy war/ jihad pure and simple, if need be, until the Day of Resurrection. It’s all there in their Covenant, the declaration of war is written in ink, throughout.
They’ve said it from the very beginning of this conflict : “You just opened the gates of hell on yourselves”
As it is:
What more to expect in the near future:
Laying false claims to God’s land and continuing the revolutionary Islamic traditions of kidnapping as a way of life.
