GAZA CITY (AFP) - Palestinian Islamist militant movement Hamas said that it was not bound by the ceasefire announced by Palestinian leader Mahmud Abbas at a Middle East peace summit in Egypt.

Abbas's declaration "expresses only the position of the Palestinian Authority (news - web sites). It does not express the position of the Palestinian movements," said Hamas spokesman Mushir al-Masri.

But they also said they'd honor it for a month...

... and see what happens, Mark. Actions speak louder than words, and the leaders might figure their extremist fringe (the extreme of the extreme) are less likely to go out and try and destroy the cease-fire under these circumstances than if they simply accepted it w/o any protest. Of course, your interpretation may also be correct -- let's just see what happens, instead of continuing the cycle of hatred, huh?

No terrorists will state

that they are bound by or will recognize a peace/truce between parties.....this is true world-wide. That doesn't mean that little by little, even if they don't recognize it, both parties who HAVE agreed to it aren't going to work together finally to get rid of the terrorists. That is the ultimate goal for both parties and progress moves forward finally.

This was a huge step for both parties to take, and you may think that you wouldn't have given the Palestinians an inch, but 'inched' concessions are what bring about peace and peace is what the PEOPLE in both regions desperately need.

That's exactly my point, Mark

We won't know how Abbas will react until it happens....but we have to give them the chance to show that reaction to know if the truce is something they seriously want. Giving both sides the opportunity to show they want the same goal is the only way to begin having peace for all the people.
