Upon his recent release from Israeli prison, Yousef told Channel 1 journalist Yoram Cohen that Hamas and Israel are trying to work out a deal for a long-term truce. According to Yousef, the deal being negotiated involves Israel helping Gaza rebuild following last year’s war there and providing a floating port along the Gaza coast, in exchange for Hamas maintaining a state of calm over the long run.

Yousef warned that if Gaza is not rebuilt soon, Hamas violence would resume.

    Good way to start Sheikh Hassan Yousef! Q. Will this “State of Calm” be for a Seven Year Period??
    PS someone should tell Sheikh Hassan Yousefthat Israel has been assisting in rebuilding etc all the time. Personally I think it should stop, no electricity, no water, no medical assistance other then for children. These people have and are the cause of their own problems. Let then get a backbone and fight their own battles with Hamas and other terrorist organization. The soft approach hasn’t work for decades and never will. These people need to cut the cancer out before it destroys them. They need to take responsablility and stop blaming Israel for their woes.
