SOUNDBITE (English) Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli Prime Minister:"Hamas again showed it's cruel eagerness to abuse Gazan civilians. Who's the humanitarian pause for? For them. For Hamas, the people Hamas reportedly respresenting. It violates the humanitarian cease-fire that is suppose to serve them and would serve them. So rejected a cease-fire, promised, that promised the Gazan people immediate relief. Hamas again mistakenly believes that the people of Israel do not have the will and determination to fight them and Hamas will again learn the hard way that Israel will do whatever it must do to protects it's people.
