Hamas Believed To Be Waiting For Obama
TEL AVIV [MENL] -- Israel's intelligence community has assessed that the
Hamas regime would try to delay any ceasefire with the Jewish state until
the launch of the U.S. administration headed by President Barack Obama.
Government sources said Hamas's military wing has been urged by Iran and
Syria to delay implementation of any ceasefire proposal by Egypt for at
least another week. The sources said Hamas's military wing overruled a
proposal by Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh to accept the Egyptian offer.
"Hamas has been told by Iran that they will get a better deal under
Obama," a government source said.
