Hamas is ready for a ceasefire with Israel if a Palestinian state is established, Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas said in a speech delivered Tuesday afternoon. Haniyeh's speech dealt mainly with internal issues. He responded to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' call for elections in the Palestinian Authority and called for unity in the struggle against the occupation.So if the state of Israel evicts nearly a half a million citizens from their homes outside the July 1967 borders, Israel can have a ceasefire for maybe as long as 20 years or one generation. And in that 20 years the Palestinian Authority can raise another radicalized generation fully armed and kitted out. This is progress?
However, he also called for the establishment of a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders. If this takes place, he clarified, he would be ready for a long-term ceasefire, which may even last 20 years.
