How's that ceasefire going, Tom?

Four Israelis, two men and two women, one pregnant, were murdered today in a Palestinian terror attack outside the city of Hebron.  Hamas claimed responsibility:
A rally in Gaza to celebrate the attack drew about 3,000 people. At the gathering, Hamas military wing spokesman Abu Obeida told The Associated Press: "The Qassam Brigades announces its full responsibility for the heroic operation in Hebron."
This is what Reuters correspondent Tom Perry wrote yesterday:
The group [Hamas] has said it will not use force to derail the negotiations set to begin in Washington Thursday -- a tactic it employed in the 1990s when, less powerful, it frequently interrupted U.S.-backed peace talks with suicide attacks.
Yesterday, we demonstrated Perry's assertion was false with Hamas' own words.  Today, Hamas has demonstrated Perry's assertion was false with its actions.

Thomson Reuters: "The world's leading source of intelligent [dis]information".
