How Long will this Hudna* Last?
The ceasefire went into effect at 9:00 PM Wednesday, 21 November. Israel made certain concessions. The most damaging was acceding to Egypt’s role as truce monitor and arbitrator between itself and Hamas.
Just before the ceasefire went into effect, terrorists fired a barrage of 40 rockets at the area, targeting Ashdod, Ashkelon and Be’er Sheva among other cities. 20 rockets were fired from Gaza into southern Israel in three hours since the ceasefire went into effect:
At 9:21 three rockets were fired into Ashkelon and Sderot.
At 9:38 three more landed in Sha'ar Ha'Negev.
At 10:01 sirens were heard in Kiryat Malachi and Ashdod.
At 10:08 a rocket landed in Ashdod.
Let us be totally honest: This is not a ceasefire - it is SURRENDER! Israel raised the white flag and surrendered. It gave up and decided to stop fighting.
Hamas, on the other hand, signed some silly piece of paper given to them by Hillary Clinton, which they never had any intention of reading nor fulfilling. (*Hudna is an Arabic term - “clam” - meaning a temporary truce, which Muslims make with intention to violate, as did the prophet Mohamed!)
Hamas Provoking Israel in order to Break Hudna at any Time
Several hundred Palestinians had mobbed the Gaza border fence. When they attempted to breach it, a soldier first fired warning shots in the air, then at the lower limbs of the trespassers - a Palestinian youth was shot dead and nine were injured by gunfire.
The cease fire was supposed to go into effect at 9 pm local time, but the rockets were still flying in record numbers out of Gaza. The reality is that Hamas does not want to end the fighting and will no doubt use any opportunity to begin the barrage again.
1) How much pressure did Hillary Clinton, representing President Barack Obama, put on Netanyahu to accept this cease-fire without having brought Hamas’ fire power to an end, and what will that mean for Israel’s ability to act in its own national security interests in the future?
2) Should rocket fire from Gaza resume, will Israel’s government allow the new assault to go unanswered?
According to the agreement powered together between Clinton and Morsi, any renewed rocket fire from Gaza will break the agreement, freeing Israel to respond. But will world opinion and continued US pressure trump the details?
Hamas Prayer for Peace
A reporter from the Hamas “Al Aqsa” television station rejoiced in the attack and announced that the Arab world awaits further news of “Zionist casualties.” “God willing we will soon see black body bags,” he said. “I pray to Allah the exalted that we will see black body bags in a short while.”

It is hard to change preconceived ideas of many Jews - which they formed after being exposed for a long period of time to anti-Israel propaganda and under the constant threat of terror and relentless discrimination by enemies and ‘friends’. Those views are predominately shaped by PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder) and the Stockholm syndrome!

Israel, armed with precise intelligence and newly developed munitions, has carried out hundreds of surgical airstrikes in a campaign meant to hit militants hard while avoiding civilian casualties. Other technological means used to avoid collateral damage include specially designed munitions with smaller blowback, a system of sending text messages and automated phone calls to warn residents to vacate areas ahead of strikes and stun explosives that are deployed to create large explosive sounds - to scare off civilians before the real payload is deployed against militants.

The new Syrian National Coalition was announced less than two weeks ago amid much fanfare in Doha - almost immediately recognised by the Gulf states, Turkey and France. It was snubbed by Islamist groups including the two most important, the al-Nusra Front and Liwa al-Tawhid. The Islamist rebel groups announced their aim to make Syria an Islamist state! (The fakery of Middle Eastern politics is exposed again. Time to face the truth that, step by step, they are building the Islamic Caliphate - it’s coming to your neighbourhood! What are you doing in order to prevent it? One can start with supporting Israel in its fight against our common enemy.)

"(Ban) expressed his concern (to Netanyahu) about the deteriorating situation in southern Israel and the Gaza Strip, which includes an alarming escalation of indiscriminate rocket fire from Gaza into Israel and the targeted killing by Israel of a Hamas military operative in Gaza," - the United Nations said - The UN Security Council did not hold an emergency meeting when hundreds of rockets were fired by terrorists from Gaza and there were ‘concerns’ when the US performed the targeted killings of Al Quida terrorists!
