Israel declared today a one-sided cease fire for its horrible genocide against the Palestinian people in Gaza.
Here's the link: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/7835794.stm
PM Ehud Olmert goes on to say that they have achieved all their objectives set at the beginning of the war and that they will keep their troops in Gaza for the time being and pull out whenever they see fit. He goes on to say that Israel will respond with force to any further Hamas rocket fire or activity. I don't know about you but to me this seems like a declaration of of intent to continue all hostilities in the Gaza strip. Israel knows damn well that it has not achieved any objectives: rocket fire still falls on Israel by the day and Hamas still operates freely in Gaza. They might have leveled to the ground half of the buildings of Gaza but this is a far cry from "getting rid of Hamas infrastructure". Israel also knows damn well that Hamas will not tolerate any presence of Israeli troops in Gaza and will continue to shell Israel with rockets as long as the occupation persists and the the land/sea/air blockade continues.
All of this looks like a very lousy Israeli excuse to continue their hostilities in Gaza by claiming that Hamas does not want peace or a cease fire. It is clear to me that they just want to play the victim or the nice guy by claiming that even after they were being super nice to stop killing innocent civilians, Hamas was the instigator yet again and thus they have to fight on and kill more people, but have it slightly justified by a crappy one-sided stupid cease fire.
The Israelis at it again with their victim mentality obsession.
On a different note, it seems that the Israelis are preparing for their next mass murder campaign:
So get your popcorn and sit back and relax. The next episode in the bloody mess that is the middle east is soon to go on the air.
