So who is in agreement with the UNSC resolution?

According to CNN, it's only UN diplomats so far:

The U.N. Security Council late Thursday overwhelmingly approved a resolution calling for an immediate cease-fire in Gaza.
This is the only item of overwhelming agreement, because, according to the same CNN:
A senior Hamas official who had crossed the border into Egypt from Gaza said Thursday his fighters are "still strong" and vowed to continue fighting despite a continuing ground and air assault by Israel that has killed more than 700 people in the Palestinian territory.

Speaking in Rafah, Egypt, senior Hamas official Ghazi Hamid told CNN's Karl Penhaul that Hamas "will not give up" or give in to Israel's demand for immediate end to rocket attacks.
But wait, this is not the most exciting point. Here it comes:
"We will not wave the flag and we will try to protect our people, said Hamid. "But I want to say that we as Palestinian people want to live in peace, security -- but I think [Israel's] occupation force will not give us the chance."
So let me see how it goes in Hamasnik's mind:
  1. We we'll not give up and continue launching the rockets (from the middle of Gasa city, but this is not the point).
  2. On the other hand, we ("as Palestinian people", whatever that turn of speech means) want to live in peace [sic!] and security.
  3. So why these bloodthirsty Jooz don't leave us in peace and security to continue our peaceful rocket science experiments?
And the world swallows all this readily and eagerly...

And meanwhile:

20 Gaza rockets strike Negev, lightly wounding one person.
