Will it ever stop ? Apparently No

Another attack on Civilians by Hamas. Perhaps it is time to take out entirely the military infrastructure in Gaza totally and completely.

Today’s bus bombing in central Tel Aviv–the first in more than six years–injured twenty-three people and will likely rule out any cease-fire in the Gaza conflict in the coming days. The location of the blast is significant: it occurred a short distance away from the Kirya, the nerve center of Israel’s military.

Now a Cease Fire has been announced. What good is that ? Seems to me that a cease-fire is all to the advantage of Hamas and will only delay until another day a resumption of the Conflict.

GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israel and Hamas agreed on Wednesday to a ceasefire brokered by Egypt on the eighth day of intensive Israeli fire on the Gaza Strip and militant rocket attacks out of the enclave, Israeli, Palestinian and Egyptian sources said.

Israeli sources said Israel had agreed to a truce, but would not lift its blockade of the Palestinian territory, which is run by the Islamist Hamas movement.

All the sources declined to be named or to give further details of the arrangements hammered out in Cairo.

More than 140 Palestinians and five Israelis have been killed in the fighting that began last Wednesday.

The ceasefire, if confirmed, was forged despite a bus bomb explosion that wounded 15 Israelis in Tel Aviv earlier in the day and despite more Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip.

After talks in Ramallah with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Clinton held a second meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu before travelling to Egypt for discussions with Mursi, whose country has led mediation efforts.

Israel’s best-selling Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper had reported an emerging outline of a ceasefire agreement that called for Egypt to announce a 72-hour ceasefire followed by further talks on long-term understandings.

Under the proposed document, which the newspaper said neither party would be required to sign, Israel would hold its fire, end attacks against top militants and promise to examine ways to ease its blockade of Gaza, controlled by Hamas Islamists who do not recognize the Jewish state’s right to exist.

Hamas, the report said, would pledge not to strike any Israeli target and ensure other Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip also stop their attacks.

    If Israel dropped about five well placed A bombs in at least four Muslim countries, it might at least slow down the attacks on Israel. That and the second coming of the Lord.

    Kafka would have been proud. Shortly we will know if the Channel #2 report is correct. I never had any doubt that betrayals would never cease for as long as unJews remain in power. Should the report be confirmed many decided to start organizing a revolution of massive proportiions. I certainly, in spite of my age, would join.

      A cease fire to allow Iran to re-arm Hamas. makes no sense to me.
