President Bush says he is skeptical that Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist groups are serious about a cease-fire with Israel. “The true test for Hamas is the complete dismantlement of their terrorist networks,” Bush said Wednesday at a news conference in Washington. Bush’s remarks came amid reports that Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the Al-Aksa Martyrs Brigade have agreed to a three-month cease-fire on attacks against Israel.
