Here is the response of the Al Qassam Brigades of Hamas to the idea of a ceasefire, that the Israeli cabinet accepted:

A military statement issued by the
.. ::: Brigades of the Martyr Izz al-Din al-Qassam ::: ..

Battle of Eaten Straw

On the initiative of the alleged cease-fire between the resistance and the Zionist enemy

There is talk in media interviews and the news about the initiative for a cease-fire between the resistance and the Zionist enemy, and we in the Brigades of the Martyr Izz al-Din al-Qassam want to give clarification for our people and in order to prevent confusion we emphasize the following:

First: the (terms) of this alleged initiative were not presented at any point to the Qassam Brigades, formally or informally.

Second: The true content of this initiative is one of bowing and meekness, the Qassam Brigades rejects in toto, which for us is not worth the ink that it was written with.

Third: Our battle with the enemy is ongoing and will increase in ferocity and intensity, and we'll be loyal to the blood of the innocent martyrs of the battle of "Eaten Straw" and all the martyrs of our people, and we promise our people that the blood and sacrifices will not be lost in vain.

It is a Jihad, victory or martyrdom.
I have no idea what "Eaten Straw" means*, but that is the official translation of the operation from Hamas' viewpoint.

The Google autotranslate options of the term "العصف المأكول" could mean "storming eaten" or "blast urinate."

Which may be the real reaction of these brave mujahadeen when they hear the sound of a missile approaching them.

As Avi Issacharoff notes, the terms of the Egyptian proposed ceasefire addresses none of Hamas' demands but if Hamas rejects it then the Arab world will lose whatever little sympathy they have for the group and they will not actively oppose an Israeli ground invasion.

So far, the Gaza terror groups continue to shoot rockets while Israel is holding fire.

*UPDATE: "Eaten Straw" comes from the same Koranic story of the birds dropping stones on their enemies I mentioned yesterday when discussing the name of the drone Hamas introduced.

The Koranic chapter "The Elephant" (105) says:

1 "Have you not seen what your Lord did with the companions of the elephant?"
2 "Did He not make their plot to go astray?."
3 "And send down on them birds in flocks."
4 "To throw down on them stones of baked clay ('sijjil')."
5 "And He made them like eaten straw."

(h/t Ibn Boutros)
