What will you have?

Sometimes, when I see more than one Hamas' announcement in a row, I feel the invisible presence of late Yasser's ghost. The ghost is smiling in his regular hideous way and rubbing his hand gleefully.

Warning: the image below may cause suffering to children and is definitely prohibited for viewing during advanced stages of pregnancy!

Now, after you are sated by the image of the dear departed ghoul, take a look at these two JPost articles:

1. Hamas says it's ready for cease-fire

For the first time since the beginning of the current round of violence, the Hamas government on Saturday announced its readiness to accept a cease-fire with Israel and hold negotiations to resolve the case of kidnapped IDF soldier Cpl. Gilad Shalit.

The announcement was made in the form of a five-point "initiative" that was published by the office of Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh in Gaza City.

and (on the other hand, or, rather, other face):

2. Hamas decries Abbas' call to stop Kassam fire

Hamas decried on Sunday a recent call by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to stop Kassam rocket fire on Israel and release kidnapped IDF Cpl. Gilad Shalit.

A statement published by the group said that "The entire world knows that the rockets are our only way of defending ourselves," Israel Radio reported.

Now you can see that the good ole ghoul has all the reasons to smile. After all, he has excellent heirs. At least as far as double-tongued way of speaking is concerned.
