Hamas leader in Gaza, Mahmoud Zahar said that his movement would be willing to offer Israel a long-range cease-fire if Israel enables the establishment of a Palestinian state along the 1967 borders. In a CNN interview, Zahar was not willing to commit to recognizing Israel's right to exist, nor did he reveal whether his movement intended on continuing to dispatch suicide bombers into Israel. If Israel would comply to Hamas's demands to establish an independent state and release its prisoners, the Hamas would be willing to commit to a 10-15 year hudna in which they will examine Israel's intentions, Zahar said.
