"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Ahmed Yassin said there could only be a 'ceasefire' if all of Hamas' demands are met.

...including a halt to all Israeli attacks, a return to Israel's 1967 borders and the demolition of Jewish settlements in the occupied territories. "The occupation must end, the occupiers must leave our land, back to the borders of 1967 in the Gaza Strip as well as in the West Bank," Yassin told the Der Tagesspiegel daily on Wednesday. "Only then can there be a ceasefire. And the settlements must be cleared, refugees allowed to return ...

But he gives us the game away with this.

"When they stop attacks against our civilians, against our people, then we will not touch their civilians," he went on, while adding that "there are no civilians in Israel, they are all military, all occupiers."

I've said it before. He and everyone else like him consider every inch of land upon which a Jew stands to be occupied. The ceasefire would be one step before the demands for an end to occupation of all of 'Palestine'.
