Hamas: 'We can't stop smuggling weapons'

Hamas 'Prime Minister' Ismail Haniyeh denied on Friday that Hamas had agreed to stop weapons smuggling into Gaza as part of the 'truce' with Israel, claiming that his organization is unable to do so.
According to a Reuters report, Haniyeh - speaking to worshipers ahead of Friday prayers in Gaza City - said: "We cannot talk about stopping smuggling because it is something beyond our ability as a government and we did not give a commitment in this regard."

Haniyeh added that Hamas would not force other organizations in Gaza to abide by the truce, but added that they had nevertheless agreed to it voluntarily.

In response government spokesperson Mark Regev said that the cease-fire agreement included a halt to weapons-smuggling and to attacks by all Gaza groups.
Can you imagine the Israeli or American governments claiming that it is 'beyond our ability as a government' to stop weapons smuggling? I didn't think so....

Hamas' word is worthless. One wonders why the Olmert-Barak-Livni-Yishai government thinks they will keep it.

Here we go again.
Another Arab hudna broken a la Mohammed.

This one was exceptionally short lived.

I doubt, however, that Olmert and company will take any action whatsoever other than give away more of Israel and more of Israel's security and more Israeli lives.
