What is a Palestinian cease-fire promise worth?

Not a hell of a lot.

Despite Truce, Palestinian Attacks Go On
Israeli Troops Withdraw From Gaza Strip in Unexpected Truce, but Palestinian Attacks Continue

Money quote: "Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas said he had contacted the leaders of all the Palestinian factions Sunday and they reassured him they were committed to the truce." Besides Jimmy Carter, who was ever stupid enough to believe anything that Hamas and Islamic Jihad members say?

Call me a cynic with regard to the "Middle East peace process," but I'm surprised that anyone has ever bid or offered more than zero in Tradesports' "Hamas will recognize Israel by December 31 2006" contract. I should have gotten on it back in July.
