    Does it prevent them from launching rockets? I didn't know that!

    Israel should reject all ceasefires that do not include Hamas handing over all rockets to the UN and full UN over sight of Hamas weapons.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I think it would be a big mistake for Israel to agree to a ceasefire until all Hamas in Gaza cease to exist. I suggest they ____ __ ___. fill in the blanks. Even if it takes an extensive protracted ground invasion supported by close air support. Give Hamas what they want, martyrdom. Send them all to hell where they belong!

    Re: Possible ceasefire in Gaza

    I find it ironic that when Israel launches airstrikes and accidently kills civilians they get international pressure put on them. Yet when Hamas launches rockets during a ceasefire, truce, or treaty right next to children's schools and in dense civilian population centers which are intended to randomly kill Israeli's there isn't a single peep from the international community putting pressure on Hamas.

    If Hamas is the true political entity which is supported by the people then its time for "the people" to reap the consequences for their support. There is no "summer soldiering" or fence ridding in this situation.

    Not completely, but it prevents them from getting more weapons as well as increasingly sophisticated ones. It also reduces the risk of suicide bombers getting across the border.

    Arab nations are circulating a UNSC resolution that would place all of the blame on Israel. Yeah, like THAT is going to get passed.

    The UNSC is debating now. Libya is proposing a resolution that puts all of the blame on Israel and only calls for guarantees for Gaza. I wonder what will happen if they are still debating at midnight New York time regarding the five members whose terms end in five hours.

    Now, the Israeli Ambassador is speaking after the Palestinian envoy completed his speech.
