In case no one knows, ‘peace’ is not achieved in this world without one side militarily defeating the other. Keep that in mind while the ‘ceasefire’ exists.
That smart diplomacy never fails to produce results, huh? Fresh off her wine-tasting tour of Australia in order to avoid testifying about Benghazi, Hillary Clinton rushed to Israel for a photo op and a call for peace in the latest skirmish between Israel and the savages Tuesday.
“Following her arrival in Israel, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reiterated at a press conference Tuesday that America’s commitment to Israel’s security is “rock solid,” adding that “the goal must be a durable outcome that promotes regional stability and advances the security and legitimate aspirations of Israelis and Palestinians alike.”
“The rocket attacks from terrorist organizations inside Gaza on Israeli cities and towns must end, and a broader calm restored,” Clinton said, adding that there are no substitutes for security and a just and lasting peace.”
The savages responded by executing alleged spies and dragging one of them through the streets of Gaza.
“Masked Hamas gunmen executed Palestinians suspected of collaborating with Israel — and at least one victim was dragged through the streets of Gaza City.
The grotesque scene yesterday accompanied some of the worst bloodshed of the weeklong war and came amid frantic efforts to negotiate a truce.
Witnesses said four masked men pulled six suspected informers from a van stopped at a busy intersection in Gaza City’s Sheik Radwan neighborhood.”
The New York Post.
Hours before the the deal was announced, a bomb exploded on a bus in Tel Aviv near Israel’s military headquarters that wounded 27 people and led to fears of a breakdown in the shuttle diplomacy Clinton and U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon were conducting in the region.
The blast, which left the bus charred and its windows blown out, was the first bombing in Tel Aviv since 2006. It appeared aimed at sparking Israeli fears of a return to the violence of the Palestinian uprising last decade, which killed more than 1,000 Israelis in bombings and shooting attacks and left more than 5,000 Palestinians dead as well.
The blast was from a device placed inside the bus by a man who then got off, said Yitzhak Aharonovich, Israel’s minister of internal security,
While Hamas did not take responsibility for the attack, it praised the bombing.
“We consider it a natural response to the occupation crimes and the ongoing massacres against civilians in the Gaza Strip,” Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum told The Associated Press.
Bassem Ezbidi, a West Bank political analyst, said it was unlikely Hamas itself was behind the attack, since it would not want to risk losing any of the international support it gained in recent days.
Support, like the main stream media lapping up the propaganda.
……solid evidence now reveals how Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza have been deliberately placing their civilian population in mortal danger, choreographing a number of seemingly gory scenes, as well as releasing images from other conflicts, such as Iraq and Syria, and passing them off as dead Gazan civilians killed by Israeli missiles.
In an attempt to persuade the world that Israel is committing war crimes and to distract attention away from the illegal and immoral use of their own population as human shields, Hamas has resorted to staging a number of fake deaths and scenes of severely injured people right in front of international TV crews.
The BBC recently broadcast a news report showing a man being carried off by four others, seemingly the victim of an Israeli missile strike, only for him to reappear in the same clip a few seconds later wandering around completely unharmed. The same organization’s Jon Donnison yesterday re-tweeted a picture of the dead body of a young girl on a stretcher in Gaza with the headline “Heartbreaking,” only for it to transpire that the girl had sadly been killed three weeks earlier in Syria.
The ‘Beeb’ and CNN just can’t wait to scurry into what ever war zone there is by Gaza and broadcast any staged tragedy they see. Al Jazeera should be jealous.
The pause in the current hostilities will end as soon as Hamas is done wringing all the sympathy it can from media tools, then it will pick up where it left off.
Matter of fact, just after the “truce” they fired some more.
Sudan has played a key role in arming Hamas militants with sophisticated Iranian-made rockets, experts said.
The Israeli Defense Forces’ (IDF) principal objective in Gaza is to rid Palestinian terrorists of sophisticated Iranian-produced rockets that are capable of striking deep into Israel’s heartland, including Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
These rockets originated in Sudan and were then smuggled into Gaza with Iran’s help, sources said.
The existence of these advanced Fajr-5 rockets reveals the deepening ties between Iran and its terrorist proxies in Gaza and Sudan, where the rockets were housed before shipment.
“To put it simply, it was Iranian-made Fajr-5s, imported via Sudan, that prompted this war,” said Jonathan Schanzer, vice president for research at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. “Iran’s fingerprints are all over this.”
Hamas thanks its ally Iran for all the help.
Hamas chief Khaled Meshaal said on Wednesday that Israel had “failed in all its goals” after a Gaza truce deal came into effect, while thanking Egypt and Iran for their support during the conflict.
“After eight days, God stayed their hand from the people of Gaza, and they were compelled to submit to the conditions of the resistance,” Meshaal said.
“Israel has failed in all its goals,” he told reporters in a Cairo hotel.
Look at it this way, it’s a good think Hillary was able to (temporarily) talk Israel out of laying waste to your cesspool once and for all.
Hamas has been bombarding Israeli villages with rockets and mortars since Israel pulled out of Gaza in 2005. The only time the world gets pissed is when Israel finally gets tired of the shit and heaves some artillery back across the border.
