A little geography lesson. The closest country to southern Israel is Egypt. Gaza isn't a country. I don't know what to call it, a terrorist entity, maybe. What would you call it? Israel keeps claiming that it is at peace with Egypt.
It's a strange sort of peace, an extended and cold cease-fire as Caroline Glick as said. If there was a true peace relationship between Israel and Egypt, then Egypt wouldn't put up with the Gazan terror aggression against Israel. But as all of us with even a fraction of an ear on the news knows, Egypt is a mess with lots of major problems, like unclear election results. That's what happens in a culture of chaos.
For the past three days the Gazan Arab terrorists have been attacking southern Israel with dangerous and potentially fatal weapons. Of course they are blaming us and claiming a ceasefire is our responsibility.
"Responding to the Egyptian efforts, we and the armed resistance announce our commitment to stop this round of confrontation as long as the occupation stops this aggression," said a written statement from Hamas's armed wing.This is consistent with all other past attacks on Israel.
More than 55 rockets hit southern Israel on Wednesday as the IDF struck back at Hamas and Global Jihad targets in the Gaza Strip despite Egyptian calls for an immediate ceasefire.

Israel continues to suffer attacks by the Arabs and we're not stopping them. This is war, isn't it?
