BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Hamas is demanding the release of all Palestinian prisoners re-arrested after their release in the Shalit exchange deal before returning to ceasefire, Israeli media reported Monday.

Israel's Hebrew-language Walla news website cited a high-ranking Hamas official who denied Hamas' involvement in the recent kidnapping and killing of three Israeli teenagers weeks earlier.

The official, Walla reported, added that if Israel wanted to return to ceasefire it would have to release all these prisoners and return to a 2012 Egypt-brokered ceasefire.

A video published Sunday on YouTube, allegedly produced by Hamas, threatened Israeli "settlers" of Beersheba and urged them to depart before it was "too late."

The video starts with the words “to the settlers of Beersheba” both in Hebrew and Arabic, then shows a zoom-in of the city provided by Google Earth.



Images of four Israeli leaders including the prime minister appear on the screen with the phrase "your leaders" both in Hebrew and Arabic.

The video continues to address the people of Beersheba through phrases on the screen with archive images in the background. "Your leaders have killed our children, bombarded our homes, and so have sentenced you to death. Run away before it’s too late," says one of the messages.

Hamas is delusional and its leaders are in need of professional psychiatric help. And Abbas has an Unity government agreement with these delusional leaders.

Both sides need to talk!!! Seriously talk!! Listen to the demands, as yet, nothing requested has been unreasonable (given what has happened). Returning to the 2012 ceasefire would be very good news.

-1- ISRAEL IS ONLY INTERESTED IN PEACE, and if Hamas is Not, then Israel will be interested in Gaza regime change, and -2- HAMAS should realize that Israel is NOT even remotely interested in yet another ceasefire, so their delusional "prisoner release * DEMANDS" WILL BE IGNORED.

Like every region ruled by a military regime (Egypt, Syria, etc.), it does Not matter to Hamas at all, what the people of Gaza may want, and: -1- Israel WILL have to give HAMAS THE WAR that it wants, but -2- Hamas will NOT give to ISRAEL THE PEACE that it wants !!

Fact: The Palestinian Arabs are the only people in history to refused a state of their own based on a border dispute. In otherwords, if they cant have the borders they want and their demands met, they are not interested in a state. Since their demands include things like moving millions of Arabs to Israel in addition to having their own Jew-free state, the conversation is a non-starter. Its time to realize that the Arabs arent doing Israel a favor by declaring a state. Its to their own benefit.
