The bottom line for all the fans of a free and democratic Palestine is this: Hamas does not want peace with Israel. This has been their official policy for years, and they keep repeating it. A Hamas run Palestine does not want peace with Israel. A Hamas run Palestine eventually wants to take over all of Israel and replace it with an Islamic state. (and we're still not so sure that a Fatah run state would be any different). So, if the Israelis are having trouble with a "hudna", the chief reason Hamas wants a hudna is that they are hurting and they need a break from attacking Israel in order to catch up on the stuff they're really screwing up on: running the daily lives of the Palestinians. And if you go on bleating about trade and embargoes, remember: Hamas does NOT want trade with Israel. Hamas does not want Palestinian goods coming or going via the border crossings with Israel.
