Hamas was never a movement of freedom and liberty. We are talking about a nationalistic fascistic movement, and fascists of this type only recognize two conditions: Blood thirsty battle cries, or mumblings of obsequiousness and capitulation. Don't let Hamas re-arm. They are not interested in a truce or peace but provoking another conflict when they are ready.
