The Algemeiner reports:
Mushir Al Masri, a Hamas MP and media spokesman, told an Arabic-language television interviewer that Hamas has no intention of reaching a long-term truce or a peace agreement with Israel, and would use any lull in fighting to re-arm its troops.
Hamas rejected an early ceasefire proposal from Egypt and its leader Khaled Mashaal, exiled in Doha, has reportedly also nixed a proposal put forward by the Qatari regime, which backs the militant group financially.
Al Masri was asked in the television interview if Hamas had its own ceasefire proposal. He responded, “This is just nonsense of the Zionists and a dream of them to live in peace and calmness for 10 years.”
..the spokesman’s name, Mushir Al Masri, meant, Mushir the Egyptian, who, like many Hamas leaders, actually was not native to Palestine.
