BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Hamas' delegation to Cairo has not received an official response to the demands the delegation submitted to Israel via Egyptian mediators, an official said Tuesday.

Israeli media reported earlier Tuesday that Egypt had told Hamas that demands such as building a seaport and airport, in addition to the opening of the Rafah crossing, were not up for discussion.

But Hamas official Izzat al-Rishiq told Ma'an TV that "what is being said about some of the demands being rejected" is not true.

Al-Rishiq said Hamas would continue insisting on an end to Israel's siege on Gaza, the release of Shalit-deal prisoners whom Israel has re-arrested, the building a seaport and an airport in Gaza, and the creation of a safe passage between the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

"These are the demands the Palestinian people as a whole, and every single letter in the demands has been baptized by virtuous Palestinian blood, and the people of the Gaza Strip have already paid the price in destruction of hundreds of houses and mosques."

Al-Rishiq warned against any attempts by Israel to shrug off the demands, saying: "Resistance fighters have their hands on the trigger."

Israeli and Palestinian negotiators are in Cairo in an effort to secure a lasting truce between Israel and militant groups in Gaza.

Why should Israel accept any Hamas demands? And Colin, should you be accepting all the demands of the Mohawk, Cherokee, Navajo and all the other occupied nations crushed under your jackboots?

Brain, you have to be the worlds most unintelligent individual. Tell me how hard to you have to work to become that stupid? Everyone of of your comments is about as useful as using a razor blade for toilet paper. Why should Israel be allowed to exist? Why should they be allowed to commit blatant war crimes and kill anyone and take land that is not theirs? . Also, the US has paid billions to the Natives Americans, along with tons of other benefits. So Take a step back a fist your own face. Cheers

Brian, If you haven't heard this yet both sides can put a demand in a ceasefire. Israel doesn't get everything they want.

There is a saying which says "no news, is good news". The Palestinian delegation (including Hamas) should be patient, calm & continue with the negotiations. An extension of the ceasefire is good news, Israel has agreed, I hope all sides will agree to it. Just look what was achieved in N.Ireland between the IRA & the British Government over the "troubles". Peace was only achieved with courage & determination (& the war had been long).
