Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Fatah offer truce, Sharon says "No"

Occupied Jerusalem - The main Palestinian resistance groups have offered to suspend attacks inside Israel if the Israeli occupation army and paramilitary Jewish terrorists agree in return to stop assassinating Palestinian citizens and end tank and aerial bombardment of Palestinian population centers.

The two main Islamic organizations Hamas and the Islamic Jihad, as well as Fatah, headed by Yasser Arafat, said in a joint leaflet widely circulated in the West Bank and Gaza Strip that their offer was meant to deprive the Israeli government of dividing the Palestinian ranks and undermining national unity.

"We are giving the Zionist enemy a period to stop its assassinations, destruction, murder and bombardment of Palestinian population centers.

In return we will stop our martyrdom and armed attacks within the borders of the occupied land of 1948 during this period which will begin as of midnight December 10 until the end of the month of Ramadan."

The offer was rejected outright by the Israeli government of Ariel Sharon.

A senior Israeli official was quoted as saying that "Israel will continue to fight terrorism no matter what."

The apartheid Israeli regime considers all forms of Palestinian resistance of Israel's colonial occupation of Palestinian land as "terrorism" while calling its own state-sponsored terror against Palestinians "legitimate self-defense."

Observers in Palestine suggest that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, a certified war criminal, is not really interested in reducing the level of violence in Palestine as this would shift attention to the political problems pertaining to the Israeli occupation.

On Sunday, US envoy Anthony Zinni threatened to leave Palestine and return home if progress in security talks between the two sides was not made.

Zinni reportedly made his threat after another meeting between Israeli and PA officials ended without any results.

According to Palestinian sources the Israeli government was refusing to end the military siege of Palestinian towns and villages which observers have pointed out reduced the population centers to "virtual concentration camps."
