Roadmap anyone?

This morning Israel awoke with the following news: at last, a ceasefire was achieved.
It was quite clear how phony that was, since Hamas already announce that the world "truce" isn't in their vocabulary, and now the bubble pops.

Palestinian militant groups Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad today denied reports that they had signed a three-month cease-fire agreement along with Yasser Arafat's Fatah faction.

Earlier today, The Associated Press reported that the three militant factions had signed an agreement to halt attacks on Israelis, as called for in the beleaguered U.S. "road map" to peace in the Middle East.

But ABCNEWS has confirmed from Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad that the groups have not accepted any cease-fire deal.

And speaking at a press briefing in Washington today, White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said he had no confirmation of the reports.

Did I mention already what great amounf of peace is this roadmap bringing us?
