Is Hamas capable of accepting such a monstrosity?

Various sources are reporting that Israel is considering "accepting the principles" of a ceasefire plan backed by the USA and Egypt. Get this: the plan does not even *mention* Hamas by name and it would be the PA (Abbas' Fatah) which would sign the plan on the Palestinian side. Yes, you read that correctly. Let me repeat:

The Palestinian franchise of the Shin Bet a.k.a. the "Palestinian authority" would sign an agreement with Israel over Gaza in which Hamas is not even mentioned.

Is the Hamas leadership going to accept such a monstrosity!?!

I sure hope not, but I am getting this bad feeling in my gut...
