Hamas launched a campaign to persuade the West to accept its offer of a hudna, or 10-year cease-fire. “This offer of hudna is no ruse, as some assert, to strengthen our military machine, to buy time to organize better or to consolidate our hold on the Palestinian Authority,” Ahmed Yousef, a senior adviser to P.A. Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh wrote Wednesday in an Op-Ed in the New York Times, the same day he made the same case in Britain.
