I just heard the news at 11 p.m. with the terms of the cease fire and I want to PUKE! It sounds as if we gave them EVERYTHING they asked for.....or just about. This is an agreement that sounds like we LOST 'Tzuk Eitan.' (I hate that name and in Eng.- 'Protective Edge.' )and
I'm so totally fed up. Yes, I'm relieved there's no rocketing, but AT WHAT PRICE???????
Going off to read a bit and sleep. Phooey to this gov't. Gutless.
Whatever the government has agreed to is irrelevant. Hamas isn't going to keep any agreements and we have no idea how the government/army is going to react. Bibi isn't sinister; some other politicians are. He doesn't have the guts to do what he knows he should do.and
Ladies...This could mean more rockets..I don't think anybody will admit to believing that the new ceasefire deal will bring even a semblance of lasting peace for Israel.
Head of Fathi Hamas: ceasefire ended without our demands, all the options open to us to protect our people. (Translated by Bing)
(Reuters) - The chief Palestinian delegate to truce talks withIsrael warned on Tuesday that Gaza violence could erupt anew unless progress is made toward a lasting deal ahead of a midnight deadline in Egyptian-brokered talks.Then why has Israel agreed?
After a last-minute agreement was stuck with Israel to extend an expiring truce by 24 hours, Azzam al-Ahmad, senior leader of President Mahmoud Abbas's mainstream Fatah movement, said in Cairo that there had been "no progress on any point" in talks aimed at resolving the Gaza conflict.
"We hope that every minute of the coming 24 hours will be used to reach an agreement, and if not (successful), the circle of violence will continue," Ahmad said.
He accused Israel of "maneuvering and stalling" as gaps on key issues continued to dog efforts to achieve a long-term deal between Israel and militant groups in the Gaza Strip, dominated by Hamas Islamists, which would allow reconstruction aid to flow in after five weeks of fighting.
Senior Hamas official Moussa Abu Marzouk accused Israel of stalling and insisted in a post on his Twitter account that the group "will never cede any" demands for a comprehensive deal. (Reuters)
