Hamas: Israel must accept demands or face long war

Cairo - Offers made to the Palestinian delegation in Cairo where negotiations for a truce with Israel are being brokered do not meet the aspirations of the Palestinian people, Hamas's head of foreign affairs, Osama Hamdan, said.

Hamdan said on his official Facebook page on Saturday that "Israel must accept the demands of the Palestinian people or face a long war."

Israel and the Palestinians agreed on Wednesday to extend a ceasefire agreement in Gaza by five days to continue negotiations on a lasting truce.

The ceasefire expires on Monday.

"Negotiations" and "demands" are mutually exclusive. You either negotiate or you demand..

Come on Israel go in and finish the job. You don't negotiate with idiots. Take PA and then the war will stop.

Meeting those conditions will assist Hamas in achieving their ultimate goal - to obliterate Israel from the face of the earth ...

They are scared because they lost 64 soldiers gaza is a graveyard for them and they hate to die even for their religion and country while the murdered palestinians are martyrs for them to die for Islam is an honour
