As part of a ceasefire both Israel and Hamas can stop receiving arms from foreign sources. As part of a ceasefire incursions and rocket fire can stop. Regardless of whether in the future Hamas can rearm, it is a ceasefire and discussion that lessens the probability of further hostility, not continued oppression. I can guarantee you one thing, based on the history of the region. Hamas, being pressed under Israel's thumb while offering a ceasefire, will be viewed as the victim, and even if Israel sends their whole army into Gaza, will be viewed as the victor. Peace and ceasefires should always be discussed. Or do you prefer further bloodshed, for both Jews and Muslims?
