Anger and Disgust Among Israelis re: the New Ceasefire Deal

To quote a few friends:
I just heard the news at 11 p.m. with the terms of the cease fire and I want to PUKE! It sounds as if we gave them EVERYTHING they asked for.....or just about. This is an agreement that sounds like we LOST 'Tzuk Eitan.' (I hate that name and in Eng.- 'Protective Edge.' )
I'm so totally fed up. Yes, I'm relieved there's no rocketing, but AT WHAT PRICE???????
Going off to read a bit and sleep. Phooey to this gov't. Gutless.
Whatever the government has agreed to is irrelevant. Hamas isn't going to keep any agreements and we have no idea how the government/army is going to react. Bibi isn't sinister; some other politicians are. He doesn't have the guts to do what he knows he should do.
Ladies...This could mean more rockets..
Head of Fathi Hamas: ceasefire ended without our demands, all the options open to us to protect our people. (Translated by Bing)
I don't think anybody will admit to believing that the new ceasefire deal will bring even a semblance of lasting peace for Israel.
Israel, Palestinians renew truce but see risk of more Gaza violence

(Reuters) - The chief Palestinian delegate to truce talks withIsrael warned on Tuesday that Gaza violence could erupt anew unless progress is made toward a lasting deal ahead of a midnight deadline in Egyptian-brokered talks.
After a last-minute agreement was stuck with Israel to extend an expiring truce by 24 hours, Azzam al-Ahmad, senior leader of President Mahmoud Abbas's mainstream Fatah movement, said in Cairo that there had been "no progress on any point" in talks aimed at resolving the Gaza conflict.
"We hope that every minute of the coming 24 hours will be used to reach an agreement, and if not (successful), the circle of violence will continue," Ahmad said.
He accused Israel of "maneuvering and stalling" as gaps on key issues continued to dog efforts to achieve a long-term deal between Israel and militant groups in the Gaza Strip, dominated by Hamas Islamists, which would allow reconstruction aid to flow in after five weeks of fighting.
Senior Hamas official Moussa Abu Marzouk accused Israel of stalling and insisted in a post on his Twitter account that the group "will never cede any" demands for a comprehensive deal. (Reuters) 
Then why has Israel agreed?

The Arab terrorists of Gaza, who are intimately allied with Abbas/Fatah just keep on increasing their demands on Israel. And the demands on Isrel are extremely dangerous for the security and continued existance of the Jewish State.

We should stop all negotiations with the Arab terrorists.  There's no way to make a peace agreement. A "deal" is like telling a sexually abused woman to marry her rapist.

Unless the Jews realize and admit to themselves that the gov is in cahoots with all the parties (friend & foe) and it's all part of their strategy to make Israel a part of the Arab region and Jewless (according to the definition of Jewish life [Torah}), then they're just fooling themselves. Rationally, their policies are insane, unless they have a goal (behind the backs of the general populace) to change Israel to another secular unJewish country in the heart of the mid-east. Those in charge don't seem to give a hoot for the welfare/safety of its citizens. That's the only 'rational' answer.
