is the same as Hamas' "extra-ordinarily generous" 2-month-old cease fire proposal?

strana | "The ball is now on Israel's side." Hamas agrees to a truce in the Gaza Strip
Hamas has informed the Qatari and Egyptian mediators of its agreement to their proposal for a truce in Gaza.
What I think that means is, "OK. We agree, nothing will stop Israel's genocide of Palestinians"— "with or without a deal".

Biden has pushes deal down throat of Netanyahu as US interests have been badly damaged these past months.

Credibility has been wiped out. It was the choice of Netanyahu himself to form the cabinet with extremist right-wing.

Past days we witnessed the last throes of Netanyahu  doing all to hold on to power in Israel.

Biden saw the swing states moving into Republican majority and the university protests did matter.

The force in the region were the Arab States Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait and Qatar. They refused to cede Palestinian  territory to Zionist biblical claims.

Al Jazeera's story has run amok.

tabloid USAToday | Hamas says it accepts cease-fire proposal; Israel approves Rafah invasion, 6 May

[...]
State Department spokesman Matt Miller said the Biden administration was reviewing the Hamas announcement and "will be discussing this response with our partners over the coming hours."
[...]
Israeli National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir described the Hamas announcement as a "trick."...
which reveals, yet again, that unwarranted Israeli homicidal mania is the obstacle to "lasting peace" even as IDF bombs, today, Palestinians fleeing Rafah.

Ben-Gvir knows full well that Israel's war cabinet rejected this "Egypt-Qatar" proposal in February, when the General Framework for a Comprehensive Agreement was branded Hamas' "delusional demands."

Media is perfectly split in accordance with geographical location 😄

Western media follow narrative of U.S. Congress and  the White  House and the censored message coming out of Jerusalem.

The Israeli population has been kept in the dark about the destruction in Gaza and the human toll. Banning Al Jazeera has come decades too late for Bibi. Bush dropped a bomb on Al Jazeera HQ in Kabul and Baghdad. 😎

Peddle diplomacy by William Burns on orders from Joe Biden himself made the difference. Israel delegation refused to travel to Cairo on Sunday ... I can imagine Biden put his stamp of approval on the proposal of today. Middle finger to Netanyahu and his right-wing cabal ... Joe just blew-up the war cabinet and ends Netanyahu's reign.

The Arab supported final deal was on the table in Cairo today.
