Hamas says “enough bloodshed” and renounces violence, commits to peace process

This is pretty incredible, no one thought that they would ever do this!

Just today, Hamas has announced that it will cease all combat activities in order to quell the rising hostilities in the area and to stave-off a repeat of Israel’s 2008 Gaza incursion:

Hamas seeks calm, stability in Gaza: spokesman – People’s Daily Online.

Taher al-Nouno, spokesman of the Hamas government, said in a press statement sent to Xinhua that “we reiterate that our position is to firmly restore stability and work on calming down the situation in the field.”

“The government has been making internal and external contacts to avoid the Gaza Strip’s new confrontation with Israel,” said al- Nouno, adding that the interior and foreign ministries are working on blocking the Israeli attempt to wage another war on Gaza.

He also stressed that his government has made the decision to cease all combat with Israel and begin talks to achieve Palestinian unity and a viable solution to the conflict, stating that, “the people have had enough. We have had enough. We must do what is important and stop the fighting and bloodshed.”

The Hamas spokesman also called on the Arab League for immediate move “to halt any new Zionist aggression on the Palestinian people and prevent Israel from using the current situation in the region to commit more massacres here.”

    do you reckon that he is feeling the pressure of all the revolts around the world and wants to preempt his own with this?

    thus, perhaps its a smoke-screen maneuver?
