And the Israeli update: ISRAEL HAS AGREED TO TRUCE IN GAZA, BUT WILL NOT LIFT BLOCKADE -ISRAELI SOURCES

* * *

This is not the first time we have had rumor of a ceasfire between Hamas and Israel, but this one may be for real. If only briefly. From Reuters:

  • CEASEFIRE BETWEEN HAMAS AND ISRAEL AGREED -PALESTINIAN OFFICIAL WITH KNOWLEDGE OF TALKS

Oil appears unwilling to wait for any confirmation from the Israeli side and promptly slides.

 

We have seen this before...

And you thought that "two sides of the same coin" only applied to American politics?

 

 

I don't know. I just... it's so damn complicated. If only people would decide what they wanted without "representatives" speaking for them. Once you represent a body of people, you're instantly compromised.

 

I think what they fear the most is non-representation.

I'm confident Israel will setup a false flag just to pulverization the helpless refugees out of existence.  THESE are "God's chosen?"  Wheres the fucking shame?  They're the spawn of Satan.

The Egyptian President has a dual-citizenship: Egyptian and American.

Americans and their Zionist masters must protect their man in Cairo. Otherwise, the second and real revolution will take place in Egypt with the “Arab Spring” becoming a major Zionist nightmare. Remember, Egyptian people already got a taste for revolutions without using an American script.

The same has happened already in Iran when a British agent Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, after becoming the Iran Supreme leader, became his own man.

Gaza gives up after less than ten days. Hizbollah held out for over six weeks. Gazans are wimps. They didn't even force a ground offensive.

"Gazans" include 800,000 children out of a population of 1.7 million who have been under land, air, sea, and economic blockade for years.

Hamas' mission is primarily social welfare, with rockets being used as a deterrent against daily Israeli airstrikes. In that sense they did not back down, and were fully prepared to respond in kind to Israel's escalation, including reverting to terror bombings (which Hamas had renounced years ago).

Was the bus bombing too real for Israel? Why would they agree now? If you put 1.7 million people in a cage then you have a good fraction of that population, at least 10% willing to die free rather than live in a cage for the rest of their lives. That's 170,000 very motivated and spirited men or women and children willing to blow themselves up and cause as much damage and pain to their oppressor as possible.

That is what will happen, Israelites. Israel has created a ghetto for 1.7 million people with fractured leadership. If the leadership gets sorted out and they all unite behind one leader, Israel has to make concessions or it will get real ugly on the streets of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. 1.7 million aren't going to sit like ducks and waiting for Israel to build a railroad track to deport them one by one.

Israel has lost already.

And then there's this:

 

 

In the northern part of Israel the percentage of Jewish population is declining.[78] The increasing population of Arabs within Israel, and the majority status they hold in two major geographic regions – the Galilee and the Triangle — has become a growing point of open political contention in recent years. Dr. Wahid Abd Al-Magid, the editor of Al-Ahram Weekly's "Arab Strategic Report" predicts that "The Arabs of 1948 (i.e. Arabs who stayed within the bounds of Israel and accepted citizenship) may become a majority in Israel in 2035, and they will certainly be the majority in 2048."[79] Among Arabs, Muslims have the highest birth rate, followed by Druze, and then Christians.[80] The phrase demographic threat (or demographic bomb) is used within the Israeli political sphere to describe the growth of Israel's Arab citizenry as constituting a threat to its maintenance of its status as a Jewish state with a Jewish demographic majority.

 

Note that a portion of those Arabs are Christians.

This time it will stick because Hillary the evil witch Clinton will get the credit even though she only showed up a few days ago and did nothing more then take the credit away from Egypt's efforts. Remember they have some ground to make up for Bengazi, just a strategic distraction to take the focus off the real truth of what is going on over there.

the global media coverage of dead palestinian children was causing Israel's reputation great damage, deservedly...  outside the U.S. anyway, most americans are too dumb to see the gross disparity is loss of life and destruction between the Israelis and Palestinians...  because of this netanyahu knows...  some pretext must be created before they can continue the ethnic cleansing and killing.

It's unfortunate that I need to bear the bad news, but what you're saying and what you believe to be saying are probably not the same.

You said that Palestinians have a victim mentality and that this holds them back. Yet this is a complete inversion of reality: Palestinians have endured decades of attempted genocide, both overt and of manichean subtlety, through which their continuing resolve is a true testament to the greatness of the human spirit.

They keep their heads high, and rather than seeing themselves as victims (thus disempowered) or losers (and thus hopeless) as you state, they stick to their values, standing up to the herculean task of striving for their dignity and sovereignty despite the ruthless oppression and hermetic blockade imposed by the NaZi state of Israel.

Now either develop a coherent rationale for your baseless and shameful statement, or GTFO. You're not in Sophist Kindergarten anymore.

You have miscalculated badly.

Right now a prison colony, under seige, using a few bottle-rockets shipped in on the cheap, has an entire nation of Land-Grabbing White Imperialists wetting the bed and suffereing anxiety attacks.  Meanwhile, the steadfast Palestinian people withstand carpet bombing and drone attacks.

What does that tell you?

Your logic is corrupt. How would the resolve of the Palestinians over decades of genocide in any way qualify them as losers? To the contrary, it is Israel's inhumane tactics that demonstrates both its soullessness and sore loser character.

How would the resolve of the Palestinians over decades of genocide in any way qualify them as losers?

What is that quote which is so popular around here?  Something about the definition of insanity being to do the same thing over and over and expect a different result?

How has the Palestinian resolve over decades to destroy the Zionists, a vastly superior force, benefited the common man?  Consider what condition the average Palestinian could be in now if their "leaders" had elected to recognize the Zionist regime years ago.

A logic that is escaping you here is that it is the Palestinian political factions that wish the Zionists harm.  You cannot deny that they do.  It is not the Zionists that wish the civilian Palistinian harm.

You have a rational, but it is neither coherent nor logical when measured against the facts.
