Israeli media confirmed that Hamas leader Moussa Abu Marzouk arrived in Doha on Saturday and has been meeting with fellow Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal, who lives in Qatar, as well as other officials of the Gaza-ruling Palestinian terror group.

The truce, which is being backed by Qatar and Turkey, stipulates that Hamas halts fire against Israel for five years in exchange for Israel allowing the construction of a floating seaport off the Gaza coast. The proposed port would be inspected by Israeli and international supervisors, and the five-year duration of the deal could later be extended further, Yedioth Ahronoth reported.

Israel has previously objected to such truces on the grounds that a seaport could be a vehicle for Hamas to smuggle in weapons that would be used to attack the Jewish state.

    And now another fairy-tale from the Brothers Grim – Iran Grim, Gaza Grim, Turkey Grim and their twins sisters Qatar and Hamas Grim. A cease-fire for five years in exchange for a floating SEAPORT off the Gaza coast. Inspection by Israel and International supervisors.

        Top of the list, Eleonora, as requested. Only problem is we will both be reading it floating around in our bathtubs in the Arctic Circle. That is all that will be left of our precious globe if the Brothers Grim get their way….
