Gaza Militants Reject Unilateral Truce with Israel

GAZA (Reuters) - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas urged militant groups in Gaza on Saturday to agree to a mutual cease-fire with Israel but they said they would only consider one if the Jewish state promised to stop its assaults first.

Israel and the Palestinian Authority held out hope of a joint truce many believe could pave the way for a revival of the peace process. But neither Israel nor the militants seemed ready to commit themselves to formally halt operations.

Such a cease-fire could help ensure smooth implementation of Sharon's plan to pull Jewish settlers from Gaza this year, which Israel says it will not carry out "under fire."

Abbas met leaders from militant groups, including Hamas, Islamic Jihad and his Fatah-affiliated al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, over the weekend to hear their conditions for a truce. All the groups said any halt to violence would not come for free.


well the palitians that want peace better wake up as this dosnt bode well for peace

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
