GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas on Thursday denied an Israeli media report that the party's leader ordered the group's armed wing to cease attacks on Israel.

Citing senior Fatah sources, the Israeli daily Haaretz reported Thursday that Khalid Mashaal had instructed Hamas militants not to fire at Israel, after reconciliation talks with Fatah leader and President Mahmoud Abbas in Cairo.

Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum told Ma'an the report was "worthless" and did not merit a response.

He said the article reflected Israel's confusion in the face of Hamas' success.

So when announcements are made or attributed to Hamas but are given by Fatah (or if Fatah is the source on behalf of Hamas) does everyone now understand why we sure as hell don't even necessarily rely on our own news media for the accuracy of a Fatah statement or source as far as Hamas goes ??? ... We've learned a hell of a long time ago that basically if ANY Palestinian faction wants to be clearly understood, we can only rely and pay attention to it to speak on ITS behalf.

HamASS is typical of Arab and Muslim intolerance. Let me ask all you Arab Muslims, are you interested in peace with Israel or just want to wipe Israel and the Jews from existence likeHamass. Yours is a backwards intolerant culture that contributes nothing good to humanity.

You butcher each other, intolerant of other cultures and religion, your "holy book" tells you its ok to murder and lie to infidels (non muslims). YOu celebrate killing children in their beds. Evil!

Alex, I guess you don't read the news. It is Netanyahu who refuses to follow the roadmap to peace that the Quartet set out and Israel and Palestine agreed to. The Palestinians have been seeking through the UN the two-state solution that Israel rejects Why don't you get your facts staright before you comment.
