That Non-offer again

From a current BBC story:
Mr Abbas' Fatah recognises Israel, and wants a state in occupied territories with a capital in East Jerusalem, while Hamas does not recognise Israel.

The militant group officially calls for an Islamic state in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza.

However, Hamas' Ismail Haniya, the Palestinian prime minister, has said recently that Hamas would observe a long-term ceasefire if Israel withdrew to its pre-1967 borders.
What a great deal: less-than-peace in exchange for a massive withdrawal.
