Hamas offers deal to Israel: 10 conditions for a 10 year truce


Report: Hamas offers Israel 10 conditions for a 10 year truce


The Jerusalem Post reports, based on an Israeli Channel 2 newscast, that Azmi Bishara announced the proposal on Al Jazeera television today.

Bishara, a former Israeli Knesset member, fled Israel in 2007 after being accused of spying for Hezbollah. He is currently living in Qatar where he is a high level government advisor.

According to Ma’ariv (Hebrew) these are the conditions:

1. Withdrawal of Israeli tanks from the Gaza border (No sweat and gladly).

2. Freeing all the prisoners that were arrested after the killing of the three youths (No sweat for the return of Aron).

3. Lifting the siege and opening the border crossings to commerce and people. (Israel may agree but will not apply it, as all conditions that Israel doesn’t want)

4. Establishing an international seaport and airport which would be under U.N. supervision (humm).

5. Increasing the permitted fishing zone to 10 kilometers. (why not? As long as the Gaza offshore gas reserves are outside this zone)

6. Internationalizing the Rafah Crossing and placing it under the supervision of the U.N. and some Arab nations (Forget the Arab nations: they are totally useless).

7. International forces on the borders. (Great idea. People in Gaza need badly the practical contributions of these forces and money, as South Lebanon has been benefiting)

8. Easing conditions for permits to pray at the Al Aqsa Mosque. (Abbass is helpless in this case, as in so many other cases. Funny, a permit to pray)

9. Prohibition on Israeli interference in the reconciliation agreement (between Fateh in the West Bank and Hamas). (How can be implemented?)

10. Reestablishing an industrial zone and improvements in further economic development in the Gaza Strip.

Note 1: And after 10 years, Israel will eradicate all the infrastructure within 3 days of carpet bombing

Note 2: Since 2008, kids in Gaza have experience three major preemptive wars, and they will dare not hope for a 10-year reprieve.
