The mindset is clear: If your adversary wants to negociate, cut his throat. I note that Hamas is good at 'pushing the envelope'...and when they get their butts kicked, THEN they want to negociate. Everybody has been there once too often. Cut THEIR throats. Leave no enemy behind.. it appears that's all they seem to understand. May all Hamas get their 72 virgins.
