Hamas said on Friday it had met a Palestinian delegation in Cairo in recent days and was ready to discuss any idea - including a new truce - to stop what it called Israeli aggression against Palestinians.

Hamas, under relentless Israeli air strikes that have driven leaders underground, is facing its worst crisis with threats of instant assassination from the sky, loss of funding at home and abroad and a showdown with a reformist Palestinian Authority committed to a U.S.-backed peace plan.

I'm reminded of the old joke about the professor, working late in his office, who gets a visit from one of his students. She's an attractive, nubile sophomore, with blonde hair and big eyes, with a few buttons undone and a seductive attitude. She enters the professor's office and pleads with him -- his course is very important to her GPA, she says, and she's willing to do anything to get an A -- *anything*.
He looks up in surprise and says, "Anything?"
She leans toward him and whispers, with quiet urgency, "ANYTHING."
He leans toward her, and whispers: "Would you... study?"
From your mouth to God's ear.
It sure sucks to be a Hamass member these days! *grins*
Just as "liberals" do, they can dish it out, but they cannot take it.
