Israel: We propose a 72-hour cease-fire.
Hamas: I propose I kill you.
Israel: Okay, how about a 48-hour cease-fire?
Hamas: No, I kill you.
Israel: Oh, you’re not giving us much to work with.
Hamas: I kill your babies too.
Israel: This is our last offer. A 10-hour humanitarian cease-fire.
Hamas: I kill all of you.
Israel: Did you bring a gun with you?
Hamas: No, I have a knife to kill you.
Israel: Next negotiator!
