Olmert peace move rejected

Did you hear about the latest ceasefire? Maybe not it was broken quickly even by Palestinian standards. Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert offered a release of prisoners, dismantle settlements, and free up funds in exchange for peace with the Palestinians. He had the Palestinian answer within a few hours, a rocket attack. Hamas does not want peace, it wants the destruction of Israel and the Israelis driven into the see, until the Israelis offer that the attacks will continue. Like these attacks by the Palestinians earlier this week. Will the moderate Muslims that we hear so much about, but never actually see, condemn this rejection of peace? Unlikely, unless they want to get thrown out of their Mosque.

The Harry's Place discussion links to The Times cartoon on the affair by Peter Brookes that sums it up nicely.
