Hudna: temporarily reducing hostilities against an enemy, often until tactically advantagous to resume the attack.
“Hudna” - a code-word for treaty violation
Israelis cease,Palestinians fire.
Yeah, Sure, Absolutely….
A three-month Islamic “Hudna”
That’s not a cease-fire, that’s a summer vacation!
All this just in time for…
Israel will be expected to stop all its efforts to prevent terrorism
Who can forget that: really a truce,It’ll be deja-vu all over again
Every time Israel has tried to make peace,
Every time peace seemed just around the corner,
Palestinian terrorists went on the rampage.
It happened at the height of the Oslo peace process,
It happened after the Camp David peace talks.
And if it happens this time…
More buses blown up
More cafes destroyed by suicide-bombers
More funerals for dead Israeli children
The Palestinians should end their double-talk and
STOP THE TERRORISM once and for all!
