Mr. Benn seems to have missed entirely the joint communique released after the border post raid. There the terrorists declared that they wanted to confine operations to military targets and Hamas had meanwhile stopped it's round of Qassam launches (tacit offer of return to hudna). This was offering essentially the sub rosa "deal" made with Nasrallah was it not? Did not the Israeli press cover the communique? I know what was in the English online editions was very selectively quoted, but assumed the more extensive Hebrew coverage would have mentioned a very crucial statement of intent.
