    Hamas-Israel Deal: Who Benefits?

    According to multiple news sources, including Haaretz andJPost, Hamas and Israel are currently in the process of solidifying a deal that would end the closure (also known as the blockade) in exchange for an eight-year cease-fire, return of prisoners and halt to tunnel building. On the surface, this deal seems favorable for both sides. Gaza would be able to start much needed reconstruction and rebuild its economy, while Israel would gain regional quiet for the near future. However, reality is more complicated than it often seems.

    No I don't think so, all the people need freedom of movement, and the Palestinians in Gaza should be able to move freely back and forth to the west bank and vice versa.

    What is the Palestinians in Gaza getting in this deal, nothing.

    For you, anything less than killing all Israeli Jews will qualify as "nothing"

    Israel Denies Contacts With Hamas on Long-term Truce

    Israel officially denied Monday night that it is conducting direct or indirect negotiations with Hamas on a long-term cease-fire agreement. “There are no meetings with Hamas,” the prime minister’s bureau said in a statement, adding: “There are no direct contacts, no contacts through other countries and no contacts through intermediaries.” the statement from Prime Minister Netanyahu’s bureau came after weeks of frequent reports from Palestinian and other Arab media of contacts between Israel and Hamas over a long-term cease-fire. ..

    What is your problem, how about Israel without an Air Force, Sirens, Shelters, IDF, Nukes, Iron Dome, and you begrudge them a few tunnels. They can't go up or to sea , you have them trapped. What do you actually think these people are suppose to bow down to you, because of what, your all powerful and you think for some absurb reason you have some sort of right to that land, their land , your stealing their land and killing them. Just who do you think you are?

    So you advocate a no borders policy for the world, which means that the US could be swamped with anti American terrorists and disease ridden travellers infecting you with Ebola. You do know that as part of the peace deal some years back Israel offered a passage from gaza to west bank and the Palestinians turned it down because it was covered over.

    Peace and no more retaliation to illegal rockets. But latest news is that hamas have started to fire illegal rockets again and Israel has responded by targeting senior hamas officials.
    So you see it is a two way street and unless the Palestinians start acting like decent human beings they will be treated as scum.
