Blaming Hamas for the loss of Palestinian life is ludicrous.
To return to status quo before Israeli attack would mean “living death,” say dozens of Gaza civil society leaders.
Even though it is still mercilessly killing civilians in Gaza, Israel has, in political and strategic terms, already lost the “war” it launched on Gaza on the false pretext of stopping rockets.

A source in the Gaza Strip with direct knowledge of the matter has provided The Electronic Intifada with a copy of Hamas’ five demands for a ceasefire with Israel.
