Monty Python and the Unilateral Cease Fire

In this classic scene, King Arthur duels the Black Knight. At the end, Arthur declares a unilateral cease fire and expresses a willingness to "call it a draw", while the Black Knight insists that King Arthur is a coward, beckons him to continue fighting, and threatens to bite his legs off.

I was reminded of this sketch while reading of Hamas' vow to continue fighting even as Israel called a unilateral but conditional cease fire (that seems to have ended, anyway).
