Just hours before the Israelis killed one of the top Hamas leaders - killing his wife and family and injuring 100+ others in the process - the founder of Hamas had publicly said they would end 'suicide bombing' if the Israelis withdrew from occupied Palestinian cities. A cease-fire of sorts is definitely now what this Israeli government wants; for it is preparing to even more savagely destroy Palestinian society when the regional war breaks out. Even the Deputy Defense Minister, Rabin's daughter, couldn't stand it any more and resigned. Meanwhile, if Hamas is true to past principles and actions, some kind of major attack against Israelis, or maybe even against Jewish supporters of Israel, can now be expected. As in the past under such circumstances Hamas may try to assassinate a major Israeli official or attempt some kind of spectatuclar counter-attack.
