Zahar: Black is White
Mahmoud a-Zahar yesterday held a press conference in which he related to the prospects of a cease fire in and around Gaza. Parts of it were repeatedly broadcast on our radio, but I can't find any mention of it anywhere online, except in this garbled rendition in Haaretz (3rd paragraph from the bottom). What he said (in English!) was that if Israel didn't agree to the terms of Hamas, Hamas has ample possibilities "to continue the defense against the Israeli settlements and cities around Gaza".
