Meretz Chairman MK Yosssi Beilin called on Prime Minister Ehud Olmert Saturday to accept a cease fire proposal presented earlier in the day by Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh. Beilin, Army Radio reported, called on Olmert to authorize Egypt to open negotiations with the Palestinian Authority towards a general cease-fire, within which kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit would be released, Kassam rocket and terror attacks would end. Israel, according to Beilin's proposal, would end its military operations in Gaza, targeted killings, and would release detained Hamas parliamentarians as well as prisoners who were scheduled to be released prior to Shalit's abduction.
