Russia Asks Hamas to Stop
By Micah Halpern

Saturday December 20, 2008

I've Been Thinking:

Russia has gotten into the Middle East act.
The Russian Foreign Ministry confirmed on Friday that Russia has called Hamas asking them to reconsider their position and to begin negotiations on a new "lull" with Israel.

Since the "lull" expired a few days ago tens if not hundreds of rockets have been shot into Israel from Gaza.
Jimmy Carter also urged Hamas to reconsider when he met with Hamas leadership in Damascus.

But Hamas does not want a cease fire now
Hamas wants to ratchet up the pressure and then start negotiations.
The problem with that behavior is that between now and then more Israelis will be terrorized and Israel will retaliate against Hamas.

Hamas does not care.
Hamas wants more leverage.
Hamas thinks that they will gain more when Egypt negotiation for them.
Hamas is wrong.
