Possible Israeli Concessions To Hamas In Cairo Garner Criticism

4

bennettAs Israel and Hamas continue their Egyptian-brokered indirect negotiations in Cairo in the midst of a 72-hour ceasefire, Israel has indicated that it might be prepared to ease some of the economic blockade on the Gaza Strip, but only “If there is a complete cessation of hostilities” on the part of Hamas, an Israeli official told the Wall Street Journal.

“I can’t tell you there’s been any progress at all,” he said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has summoned a meeting with senior ministers to discuss the ongoing negotiations. Yedioth Achronoth also reported that Israel may agree to facilitate the transfer of salaries for Hamas officials via a third party. However, no option to demilitarize Gaza, as requested by Israel, appears to be on the table at this point.

Earlier Israel’s Economy Minister and member of the Security Cabinet Naftali Bennett spoke out against such a potential agreement with Hamas and other Palestinian factions in Cairo.

“The money will be transferred to the terrorists who are digging under our feet, to the rocket manufacturers, and to those who shoot at us. It’s very simple. It’s a ‘calm for money to terrorism’ formula,” he said. “You can’t fight Hamas with one hand, and fund it with the other.”

  1. No Hamas in Gaza or anywhere else. Hamas – like their sponsor Obama – are congenital liars and not to be trusted.

  2. why are they negotiating. they should simply make one concession. if they stop shooting, so will we. if not, we continue until you fall.

  3. Let’s see how badly we can do at negotiating………. the smartest people in the world and we can never get the negotiations right………

  4. THE PM’S 6 POINT PLAN FOR PEACE WITH HAMAS IS INSANE! IF HE GETS IT BY THE CABINET IT WILL MEAN THE DESTRUCTION OF ISRAEL. ONE OF THE POINTS IS TOTALLY INSANE: ” TO PAY THE SALARIES OF HAMAS LEADERSHIP ” !!!! THEY WILL ONLY USE THE MONEY FOR WEAPONS, REBUILD THE TUNNELS AND CARRY OUT ITS PLEDGE TO KILL THE CITIZENS AND DRIVE THEM INTO THE SEA!
    90% OF THE ISRAELI PEOPLE WANT THE MILITARY TO DRIVE HAMAS OUT OF ISRAEL!!! THE ONLY TO STOP THE PM IS TO RECALL THE PRESENT GOVERNMENT AND ELECT CANDIDATES WHO WILL DRIVE THEM OUT OF GAZA!! AND HELP THE CITIZENS ELECT REPRESENTATIVES THAT WILL RECOGNIZE ISRAEL AND SIGN A PEACE TREATY WITH THEM!! IT IS THE ONLY WAY TO STOP THE DESTRUCTION OF ISRAEL! PLEASE DO AWAY WITH PM AND ITS CABINET!!
