Gaza And Israel Agree To Ceasefire, Oil Plunges

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Just following the motions here:

  • ISRAEL AND GAZA MILITANTS AGREE TO EGYPTIAN-BROKERED CEASEFIRE - HAMAS OFFICIAL AYMAN TAHA - RTRS
  • GAZA TRUCE TO BE ANNOUNCED IN CAIRO AT 9 P.M., CHANNEL 2 SAYS - BBG
  • GAZA TRUCE WILL BE DECLARED AT 1900 GMT AND GO INTO EFFECT AT 2200 GMT - HAMAS OFFICIAL SAYS

So who breaches the ceasefire first?

In the meantime, gullible algos go no bid in brent.

Netanyahu may be nutty but he knows that the anti-tank weapons that Hezbollah used to make smoldering coffins for jew Merkava tank crews in 2006 will be behind every wall if he invades Gaza so his bluff has been called and he blinked!

There have been warnings to Bibi for years that there's no rescue coming this time.  The strategic importance of Israel for the US military is basically gone, and the expense of the PR campaign (both financially and in terms of "political capital") has become too much to bear.

Things will change soon enough.  Either the Likudniks will drag the country into an unwinnable war, or they'll be forced to rein in their aggression a bit.  At LEAST they could try bringing the rhetoric in-line with Israeli public sentiment.

Some folks in Israel got the major smack down, you don't send 75,000 reservists home after calling them up unless you got the smackdown from outside.

Uh... NO. Hamas was about to cease to exist, this is why THEY blinked without getting the IDF naval blockade dropped as they were salivating over.

Apartheid Israel is lucky to have Hamas running the show in Gaza and the MB in Egypt:  were they faced with real Resistance, their rash and arrogent behavior would have far more dire consequences.

Instead, at the moment where the Zionist project--genocide and Apartheid from the Nile to the Sea--has begun to rot a cease fire is agreed.

Apartheid Israel was begging for the rockets to "Just stop," as they Tweeted the other day.

Yet another vicious attack on Gaza.  Yet another round of dead babies and grandmas in wheelchairs on the part of those brave warriors bombing from 25,000 feet.  Yet another FAILURE by the Zionist Apartheid government to quell the rocket fire.

That's 4 military defeats in a row going back to 2000.  Time for this hideous, cancerous blot to vanish.

Hamas blinked? You called up 75,000 reservists, then had to send them home without using them. You think Bibi sent them home because he got what he wanted? You've been smoking that Colorado dank again I see. Try some Hezbollah hash, maybe that will improve your clarity.

About the only decent "news" from RT is the live feed they have overlooking Gaza:

Of course, even that is for propaganda purposes:

http://thespiritoftruth.blogspot.com/2012/11/has-world-war-three-begun.html

Even so, in the last hour or so, flares were spotted over the perimeter of Gaza that seems to indicate an IDF ground operation might have begun:

http://thespiritoftruth.blogspot.com/2012/11/has-israel-started-ground-i...

There's been no news reports confirming this at present, but a heads up might be in order.

in the works apparently.. this will of course force them to invert the lie that hamas is being emboldened by the muslim brotherhood (sunni) and blame iran (shiite). But obviously Satanyahu wants to bomb iran. After losing big on the US elections with his boyfriend of 35 years, increasing (proper) world disgust at Israel, failure to incite war with Iran yet, and disastrous economic conditions - he needs blood fast.

Yes, I'm certain those weren't rockets the loving Muslims shot into Israel, but rather bouquets of flowers.

What is all this insanity about the wonderful poor downtrodden peaceful Palestinians?

No doubt half-truths on both sides but the anti-semitic defense of missile shooters and suicide bombers is veering into tin-foil hat territory.

I don't think Israel should have been established, bad idea, but there it is.

Do you expect the Jews to allow the Muslims to kill them?  Erase them from the page of history?  Or whatever euphamism the Muslims use to mean "exterminate"?

It's war.  All is fair in love and war.  If you are basing your self-esteem on your bleeding heart for the Muslims you should go live with them and see how things go.

Well, I suppose that's the sort of response we should expect from a member of a nation that would elect to power a party with a leader who flat out says shit like,

"And we cannot be effective at major economic matters any longer unless we work with our economic partners around the world and work with them closely and intimately. That is essential. I know some people don't like it. It is a loss of National Sovereignty but it is a simple reality. It is a simple reality."
- 'Conservative' PM Stephen Harper

I wonder what he meant by 'closely and intimately'. (nudge nudge wink wink.)

what fucking planet are you from? Most in Gaza live just above subsistence, and kids are not even allowed to import musical instruments. the blockade is pure barbarism:

"In implementing the siege on Gaza, Israeli officials sought to allow "for subsistence without the development of malnutrition." "Red Lines" is a poignant reminder of how that measurement, the calorie, works as a tool of exclusion and political containment."

Playing For Time is a 1980 CBS television film, written by Arthur Miller and Fania Fénelon, based on Fénelon's autobiography, The Musicians of Auschwitz. Vanessa Redgrave stars as acclaimed musician Fania Fénelon.

Playing For Time was based on Fénelon's experience as a female prisoner in the Auschwitz concentration camp, where she and a group of classical musicians were spared in return for performing music for their captors. The film was also adapted as a play by Arthur Miller.

What materials/products does the blockade stop?

 

Are you suggesting that Israel boards Gaza bound boats and kills or imprisions the passengers in an attempt to not stop commerce from entering or leaving Gaza?

 

 

In January and February 2011, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) conducted an assessment of the effects of the measures to ease the access restrictions.[12] They concluded that they did not result in a significant improvement in people’s livelihoods.[12]

They found that a limited reactivation of the private sector resulted from the increased availability of consumer goods and some raw materials but the "pivotal nature of the remaining restrictions" and the effects of three years of strict blockade prevented a significant improvement in livelihoods.[12] Although the unemployment rate in Gaza fell from 39.3% to 37.4% in the second half of 2010 there were significant food price rises.[12] There was little or no improvement in food insecurity rates in Gaza which continued to affect 52% of the population.[12] Few of the 40,000 housing units needed to replace homes lost during Operation Cast Lead and for natural population growth could be built as a result of the ongoing restrictions on importing building materials.[12] The approval of over 100 projects funded by international organizations intended to improve the "extremely deteriorated" water and sanitation, education and health services, followed the easing of the blockade.[12] The implementation of these projects was delayed by the entry approval process for materials and the limited opening of the Karni crossing.[12] OCHA found that there had been no improvement in the quality of services provided to the population of the Gaza Strip as a result of the projects so far.[12] There was no significant increase in the number of exit permits granted by Israel to allow access to the outside world including other parts of the Palestinan territories.[12] Permits continued to be issued by Israel only on an exceptional basis with a 114 being issued during the second half of 2010.[12] OCHA described Egypt’s move to regularly operate its crossing with Gaza for special categories of people as a "significant, albeit limited, improvement".[12]

I was hoping that you wouldn't embarrass yourself further. The Jewish people who oppose the occupation of Palestine or even the state of Israel itself are not anti-Semitic. But you go right ahead and broadcast your ignorance for all the world to see.

the type of jews that oppose the war in gaza are the same jews that worked for the nazis in the warsaw ghettos  and are working for soros today.  they are a disgraceful cadre of oppurtunists, self haters and competitive altruists.

Breaking the Silence is an organization of veteran combatants who have served in the Israeli military since the start of the Second Intifada and have taken it upon themselves to expose the Israeli public to the reality of everyday life in the Occupied Territories. We endeavor to stimulate public debate about the price paid for a reality in which young soldiers face a civilian population on a daily basis, and are engaged in the control of that population’s everyday life.

Did I miss the reason WHY the Gaza blockade was first implemented by Israel, or are you simply misinformed?

 

Wasn't it because when you steal people's land and kill their families they will eventually become angry and fight back?

The US should certainly suspend all support for Israel if for no other reason than that they have used the arms which we supplied them with to kill our own servicemen.

 

Survivor: Shell casings found on deck afterward were marked "Ft. Dix, New Jersey" indicating that our men were killed with munitions supplied to Israel by the United States.

historical lands...  right.  based on the bible, with a total lack of historical evidence... you think its just fine to kill and throw off the current inhabitants of the land, who had been there for centuries... so that descendants of European converts to Judiasm (Ashkenazi) can take the land despite no real historical connection?  btw, those Palestinian people are actually Semites, who have a much stronger claim to the land by any definition...    so save the BS, Israel is a colonial empire with no moral or historical claim to Palestine.

The palestinians are "actually" disapora of the Persian and Babylonian crusades that captured the Jewish homelands back before the times of Elvis.

The Persian/Babylonian diaspora emmigrated to Judea looking for an easy life.  Not the type of people to prosper, they have existed is a forlorn state, looking for someone to give them things.  They were moved to the Outremere when the world decided it was time to right many wrongs by "ensuring" the Jewish homeland is re-established.

Iran supports Hamas because Iran supports Iran.  End of Story.

John 39 , up to 1948 half of those palestinians  were bedouins, sudanese, egyptians , turks, iraquis , nomads who made their way to the Jewish National Home, to find work in the sprouting economy that the jews created. Ther other half arabs muslims and christians were without any kind of national identity , they defined themselves as southern syrians, or ottomans.Get a copy of Joan Peters 's book " From time immemorial " and you will read the exact figures, numbers, and foreign origins of those so-called palestinians.

The one and only name of this land is the " Land of Israel " meaning the land of Jacob and his descendants ( jacob had his name changed to Israel after he fought with the angel of god )

Concerning the european origin of ashkenaze jews ( converted to judaism ) this is a fantasy after a novel by Alfred Koestler.The jews all over their 3000 years of history have always been very reluctant to proselyte. 

If you need more elements you should read the bible and the koran.

To save you time, please note Jerusalem is mentioned 822 times in the bible .

And in the Koran , guess how many times ? ZERO., never , ever.

Israeli Historian: Palestinians Are Biological Descendants of Bible’s Jews

 

Most Zionist thinkers were aware of this: Yitzhak Ben Zvi, later president of Israel, and David Ben Gurion, its first prime minister, accepted it as late as 1929, the year of the great Palestinian revolt. Both stated on several occasions that the peasants of Palestine were the descendants of the inhabitants of ancient Judea.

Israeli Soldiers Breaking The Silence on the Occupation of Palestine

 

Former Israeli paratrooper Avner Gvaryahu, now an activist with Breaking The Silence explains to Green Left Weekly's Peter Boyle how 850 former Israeli soldiers have given testimony about the gross injustices against the Palestinian people they have witnessed and made to participate in as part of Israel's military occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. He was visiting Australia to promote the book "Our Harsh Logic" (Scribe Publications).
