    Re: Militants fire rockets into Israel after cease-fire

    If I was Israel and got this 1 week ultimatum I would go ahead and do it. Pull back let them have the land. The first attack that happened afterwards I would go in full bore and take control of the WHOLE of Gaza, not just the part they have now. Then I would go through and wipe out every single person that is suspected of being Hamas. Forget civilian casualties. Then tell the people that "Hey, we will withdraw to our borders one more time. If we are attacked again then we will do just what we did this time and this time KEEP Gaza for our own".

    When we generally refer to the blockade we refer to Palestine's complete isolation. They have really been under a de facto blockade for far longer though. Israel should encourage the use of its borders and Gaza's sea coast for trade once adequate security measures are in place. The Egyptian border should remain closed for some time as its use has historically been for counterproductive measures.

    The sides are so at odds with each other now it might be necessary to begin reconstruction in a far less populated area of the Gaza strip, away from Gaza city. It also must be understood that to gain the people of Gaza's faith some rocket attacks must be addressed with minimal civilian casualties. The process will not happen over night and it will test both side's patience (especially Israel's) quite severely.

    can you show me the "far less populated" area. its pretty dense there.....



    fact remains, is Hammas must go. they are the instigators and the cause of the "palestinians" suffering....

    Isreal with its defensive attacks here are doing what you say short of full occupation.

    Perhaps if a true international coalition were to occupy Gaza again not anti-isreal UN types perhaps you would have something here.

    Re: Militants fire rockets into Israel after cease-fire

    Israel is in a catch 22 right now. If they keep the ceasefire, then eventually they will be forced to pull out of Gaza by international pressure. While the international community will be happy with the conflict being over, eventually Hamas will fire rockets into Israel and the situation will repeat itself over and over again.

    On the other hand if Israel destroys Hamas, the Arab community will be mad. They will use propaganda to spin it on how bad Israel is, not how bad Hamas was. And with that more people will hate Israel in the middle east. And the UN will wet themselves at what Israel sucks.

    I say Israel should overthrow Hamas, and here is why:

    By overthrowing Hamas Israel has a better chance for long term peace. If they pump Gaza full of money and rebuild it and make it better, the people will be less angry at them and may elect someone who doesn't want Israel to be destroyed.

    While of they don't take out Hamas, a few years from now Israel will be responding to rocket attacks. Both choices are not that good but they have to try for piece.

    I think this is called investigative reporting, which is dangerous and hard work..

    The UN or Israel can end this. The criminal organization, extremist Islam must be apprehended and bought to trail..
    Or Gaza and Hamas can be wiped off the face of this planet.

    Great stuff. Hope the Israeli's make the terrorists and their supporters suffer like they never have.

    If they want it... GIVE IT TO 'EM until there are no more idiots to launch rockets or throw stones.

Each time Israel uses collective punishment they isolate themselves and tie the hands of their neighboring leaders.
    1. Military policing from whom?

    2. Israel has insisted on international support. They WANT international monitors on the border to enforce the terms of the cease fire. It is Hamas that rejected that proposal.

    I can't say I am familiar with the specific population distribution of Gaza, but where I live in nearly as crowded (the western plain of Taiwan is a very crowded area) and yet there ARE locations with relatively sparse population compared to the densely populated cities. Surely there are places in Gaza that are comparatively less densely populated.

    ...isn't it what they said like 3 weeks ago?

    you can see the result of this policy in the first post of this thread

    Almost every nation and the UN has called for a mutual ceasefire. Since any mutuality between Israel and Hamas seems to be impossible, Israel unilaterally declared an Israeli ceasefire to begin at 2am Sunday local time.

    According to Hamas and Islamic Jihad leaders however, there can be no ceasefire until the IDF withdraws from Gaza. At the same time though, they provide no mechanism to allow for a peaceful and non-violent IDF withdrawal.

    Once again, to the detriment of all Gazan's, their leadership spurns an opportunity to end the violence within the Strip. Not only that, but their leadership continues to engage in the exact same aggression (missile attacks on Israeli civilians) that initiated the war in the first place.

    It seems to me that Hamas ideology places more importance on the value of Pan-Arabic propaganda (Our military was triumphant!) than it does on ending the violence within the territory it supposedly governs. The imagined ends - Hamas victory! - are vastly more important than the real means - sacrificing the people and infrastructure of Gaza.

    There is no mutuality here. There is no Hamas reciprosity to the Israeli ceasefire. Israel has opted to end the violence. Hamas continues to attack.

    Unqualified arrogance and unbounded ignorance. Very sad.
    Looks like they apply the ceasefire now

    I know it may sound strange (and you'll call me apologist for that) but you should give them some time. You can't expect them to stop all the attacks in one day. It's sad, and they are wrong, but it's like that.

    The right thing to do is not over-react. Let them calm down. It has worked nearly perfectly during 4 months. In the long term, that's how every attack will stop.
