Hamas rejects Egyptian cease fire, says Israel must accept its demands or else, Meshaal thinks he's DeGaullesend Gazans to their deaths.
Hamas has sounded a belligerent tone as negotiations for a long-term truce continue in Cairo.
In a message posted on his Facebook page, Hamas's "foreign affairs" chief Osama Hamdan said the Islamist terror group rejects the current Egyptian proposal, and pledged a "long war" of attrition against Israel.
"Israel must accept the demands of the Palestinian people or face a long war," he said.
Other Hamas officials issued similar statements over the course of Saturday.
Hamdan's Facebook message was posted not long before a message on the Twitter account of the "military wing" of Hamas, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, in which the group vowed to continue its armed "struggle".Here's a lengthy interview with Khaled Meshaal in which - what else - he blames Israel for the conflict.
Let's go to the videotape. Meshaal's comparing himself to DeGaulle is around the 10:15 mark.
I wish the interviewer had been tougher. She didn't throw him softball questions, but she did let him get away without really answering most of them.
