    I am satisfied with Israels response to the immediate violation,on the part of Hamas,to the Isareli,"cease fire/olive branch". As to Israel not getting out of Gaza...,these guys have learned something,"its time to stay...the course".

    So Israel has 1 week of peace from rockets apparentley and to leave Gaza before rockets get sent out.
    Do you suppose that if Israel obeys this ultimatum, Hamas will not fire rockets any longer?

    Thanks Laila.

    With its unilateral ceasefire early this morning, Israel forced Hamas to either respond in-kind, or take a PR beating. It's a chess game of brinksmanship.

    This raises the questions....

    What happens after one week? Does the ceasefire endure? Will Hamas fire more missiles after the IDF withdraws? Will Israel open the border crossings she controls? Will Hamas continue to smuggle weapons into Gaza? Who will monitor compliance? What if Joe Schmoe fires a mortar or rocket? Will this lead to further talks? Will Hamas release kidnapped IDF Cpl. Shalit?

    Many questions. Few answers at this point.

    I don't know.
    I think Hamas has achieved the goals it wanted in this conflict tbh, it has made Israel come off as bad. Hence why it said 'In a decision designed to throw the international focus back on Israel, the Islamists said that they would halt all rocket attacks on the country'

    Re: Militants fire rockets into Israel after cease-fire

    A couple of things.


    1. if there are no rocket attacks for a week, this clearly shows the operational command of hammas and thier control over these attacks.


    2. this further legitimizes Israel's opertation here as they had targeted the hostile forces.

    3. will this cease fire last a week?

    4. how many rockets after this cease fire will it take for Israel to defend herself from now on?

    Nonsense. Israel is already bad to certain people. The rest of us saw israels right to defend herself.

    You know the answers my friend, hell we all know them. Its just some wont allow them selves to see the replay of history that been taking place year after year after year.

    Things may quite down in Gaza, Israel will leave, the Hamas will storm in declaring Gaza an Islamic state again, an Israeli solider will fart near a copy of the Koran that will send the militants into a mentally challenged moment.
    (What am I talking about, these people live in a mental state) and the rockets will resume.

    No idea, i thought the break was to allow humanitarian aid and to try and come up with a longer ceasefire.

    Israel should open it but just oversee it to ensure nothing goes through that is not meant to.
    Whether Hamas smuggles depends on Egypt and Iran. UK and some other European countries has offered to monitor ships and weapons, whether Israel accepts it remains to be seen. Egypt has tho refused to allow soldiers on its border. Guess we have to wait and see for the answers for the rest

    Every country has the right to defend itself but likewise it does not have the right nor should be supported if it leads to huge bloodshed.

    If UK started bombarding Ireland and killed 1,000 irish people. I highly doubt people would be singing our praise and same for any other country in the world. Israel is no different

    Are you saying that a nation has a right to defend itself, but only up to a point? If that's what you meant, then where do you draw the line?
