A current joke reflects the typical Israeli approach to the hudna:
Question: How do you say, “Hold on a minute, stop shooting while I reload my automatic rifle” in Arabic?
Question to Defense Minister Ehud Barak: “Any comment?”
Answer: “Yes, we’re tired of being courageous.”
Question to Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni: “Do you support a hudna?”
Answer: “Yes, we follow the State Department.”
Question to President Bush: “Sir, do you support a hudna?”
