Hamas wants end to blockade in cease-fire talks, official says [Barf Alert]

(CNN) -- Hamas wants an end to Israel's long blockade of Gaza and raids on the territory in any cease-fire that might put a stop to five days of weaponry plummeting from the sky, a top Palestinian official said Sunday.

Hamas, the Palestinian militant group that has ruled Gaza since 2007, said an Israeli airstrike killed a family of 10 on Sunday. Israel, meanwhile, said Hamas had fired nearly 150 rockets into Israel in a single day, and that the strike was aimed at killing one of the leaders of the militant group's rocket corps -- but Israel was unsure whether he was among the dead.

It was the latest violence in what has become a daily nightmare for millions in the region, one that puts Gaza's 1.7 million residents and millions of Israelis in harm's way. But an Israeli special envoy was in Egypt for cease-fire talks late Sunday, the Egyptian government said, and a stream of Arab League, U.N. and European diplomats were darting in and out of the region on similar errands.

Nabil Sha'ath, a senior Palestinian negotiator, said Hamas is demanding an end to "the harassment and draconian siege of Gaza that prevents anything from coming in or going out, so that there will be a normal life for the people of Gaza." The territory has been under a crippling economic embargo since Hamas won control of the territory from the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority, which controls the West Bank.

A truce with Hamas is a waste of time. It will only last until Hamas replenish’s it’s rockets.

You know the old joke: A moderate Muslim is a radical Muslim who has run out of ammunition.

A normal life being firing rockets into Israel on a daily basis.

Well, let’s see about that. These phuquing Islamofascist murders snuck in a tremendous arsenal of thousands and thousands of aggressive weapons into the land Israel gave them (when it didn’t have to) in order that they might “live in peace side by side with Isr...” as the old “peace talks” slogan had it....... and then what did these basturds do? They fired thousands of these missiles from that place into Israeli towns, villages, schools, and pizza parlors.
And now they want Israel to actually let them import tens of thousands more deadly missiles, openly at that, plus what else, tanks and>>>??

(The obvious answer is: “Not a chance in a million years...never! If you must screw around and kill innocent people, go move to an Arab country and screw around there, but the Jews are clearly not “taking it” anymore. Get used to life in the grown-up world or get lost or get dispatched nice and early to your Alluh! Grow up and behave like civilized human beings on this earth, or go to hell. You takes your choice, and frankly my dears, nobody out here gives a damn anymore. Period, end of file, and end of Answer.)

BUT.... ha ha! ,.... ha!....
Hey, Israelis! You’ve been outclassed (by far!) in the Raw, Naked, Bald Chutzpah Department!! What happened, and what you gonna do about THIS!?

The Palis want to have two Palestinian states - one on either side of Israel : Hamasastan and the West Bank, which they would use to attack Israel with missiles as they've been doing for years upon Sderot.

The minute the brave jihadis crap their pajamas, they go running to the international antisemites for a reprieve.

The Palis have demonstrated a lack of ability to maintain peaceful relations with their neighbors, they are not capable of wielding power.

I hope Israel confiscates all the land swapped for this mockery of "peace" and restores it to the Sons of Jacob.

In fairness to CNN, that sort of thing can happen when you use your family as human shields.

I went to a RJC event where a prominent Jewish Republican said in order for the Israelis to win the information war, they need to retrofit drones with cameras so peop,e could see video of exactly why they were shooting at some targets.

It would open a lot of eyes.

If they demand a resumption of imports, let them import electrical switch gear and distribution systems. Let them import sewer and water plants. Let them import road and bridge building equipment. Let them import hospital supplies and equipment.

Let them replace all that has been destroyed except the lives of the leaders taking them down the path of destruction.

I was just saying that if the palees does want to have terrorist families (ie, families living next to rocket launch sites) whacked of a certain size, they’ll need to outlaw that size family. Of course, other family sizes are still at risk...

They SAY a lot of things, most of them provably false, frequently absurdly so.
