64% of Israelis favour holding talks with Hamas

A poll in the left-leaning Haaretz daily said 64 percent of Israelis supported talks with Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, to end cross-border rocket fire from the enclave and to secure the release of sergeant Gilad Shalit, who was abducted in 2006 by Gaza militants.
...Hamas says it would consider a ceasefire if Israel lifted its blockade and ceased military operations in Gaza and the occupied West Bank.Hamas, in talks with Egyptian mediators, has also offered a swap deal that could bring Shalit's release in exchange for the freeing of hundreds of Palestinians from Israeli jails.
