The latest news report:
Israel on Wednesday accepted a UN proposal for a five-hour unilateral humanitarian pause in the fighting to allow for relief aid into Gaza.
IDF sources said the lull in the fighting would go into effect on Thursday at 10 a.m
There is no need for a “humanitarian pause.” It is really to facilitate mediation efforts to get a cease fire.
Israel called up another 8,000 reservists to bolster the 40,000 already called up. Netanyahu repeated that Israel would “use as much force as necessary to restore the quiet.”
Obama says that they are doing as much as possible to restore the 2012 ceasefire. What this means is that Hamas will have to be bribed with some kind of accomplishment to get their approval.
Israel must reject any concession to Hamas but will be hard pressed to do so seeing as she has been asking for help in restoring calm. As for Netanyahu’s desire for the international community to work toward the demilitarization of Gaza. its a pipe dream.
Why isn’t anyone in the international community demanding the the terrorist Hamas be destroyed? Why isn’t Netanyahu?
It seems to me that if Israel was really going to attack Iran when talks fail, that she would want to finish off the threat from Hamas first. The fact that she doesn’t suggests no intention to attack Iran.
