No ceasefire in Gaza

View Comments

The Gaza truce has been held up because Israel has yet to respond to proposals, according to a Hamas official who says we “must wait until tomorrow.” They cite Hamas official Ezzat Al-Rishq.

If Israel isn’t even responding to proposals, how is there a deal at all?

  1. They get that from us .. “If Israel isn’t even responding to proposals, how is there a deal at all?” … we send faxes over to Pakistan once a month with drone information … a ‘no response’ gives us the go-ahead … http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444100404577641520858011452.html

  2. Israel has put itself in a big trouble and just can’t stop the war, can’t even decide.

  3. Jade, how has “Israel put itself in big trouble?” Hamas and many other groups have been attacking civilian targets in Israel for years, only to then make sure that “victims” are in place when Israel retalliates, so they can make sure the news sees the “violence” that has been comitted by Israel, and ignores that it’s in response to an attack. I have read about Hamas attacking from the roof of a childrens hospital, just to ensure that WHEN Israel retalliated, there were plenty of victims of “Israeli violence” for the news. In another story, the “victims” were evacuated PRIOR TO ANY ATTACK, completely with a timestamp proving it, yet the media ignores this. I think it’s best shown in a cartoon I see regularly on the web. In this image, a hamas member stomps on a Star of David, only to be hurt, then to yell “Agressor!” at the star, which represents Israel. Meaning, in their minds and in the way the media portray it, Israel is the “agressor” when someone is hurt because Hamas attacked first. So, once again, I fail to see any way that “Israel has put itself in big trouble.” Oh, and Bibi Netnyahu said it best. If the arabs laid down their guns tomorrow, there war would be over. If Israel laid down our guns tomorrow, Israel would be over.
