Hamas complains to Egypt about Israeli 'cease fire violations'

Isn't this just great? The Islamist 'government' of Gaza is complaining to the Islamist government of Egypt about alleged Israeli 'cease fire violations.' (I'm not even sure where to put the scare quotes in that one).
Gaza medical officials said the 21-year-old man had been among six Palestinians wounded by gunfire during Friday's demonstration near southern Rafah, and had later died in hospital.
The IDF said the Palestinians had tried to vandalize the fortified fence and that soldiers shot at their legs after first trying to warn them away.
The Gaza Strip's Hamas government described the incident, as well as the Israel Navy's seizure of nine Palestinian fisherman on Wednesday, as violations of a ceasefire mediated by Cairo to end a surge of cross-border fighting this month.
"We have discussed this with Egyptian officials, so they guarantee a cessation to those violations," Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said.
Increased Palestinian access to the Gaza fence and to fishing waters heavily patrolled by Israel were among conditions lodged by Hamas and other armed factions in the Cairo talks.
Israel said it was willing to ease its military clampdown on the territory if the Palestinians did not pose a threat.
I don't see this 'cease fire' lasting very long. It's too bad we didn't finish Hamas of while we had the chance four years ago. Now, they've become a much bigger problem.
