Israel Is Done with Ceasefires
by Evan McMurry | 10:30 am, August 2nd, 2014

The Israeli security cabinet decided unanimously that it would no longer pursue ceasefire options with Hamas, declaring late Friday it would pursue military options for defeating its Palestinian opponent in Gaza.

The decision was reached after Hamas broke a 72-hour ceasefire almost immediately Friday, killing two Israeli soldiers and potentially capturing a third.

One Israeli official said the country’s ground operation would continue destroying tunnels Hamas had built into Israeli territory, and that the country would consider withdrawing from Gaza once it felt it had defanged Hamas.

“if we feel that deterrence has been restored, we will leave the [Gaza] Strip on the basis of the ‘quiet for quiet’ principle,” the official said. “If we feel deterrence has not yet been achieved, we will continue the operation inside the Gaza Strip or exit and continue with the aerial bombardment.”

Despite multiple attempts by the U.S., Egypt, the United Nations to broker a variety of temporary ceasefire agreements, fighting has continued almost unabated for three weeks, killing over 1,600 Palestinians and leveling a good amount of Gaza infrastructure.

hamas has taken advantage of every Ceasefire by moving rocket launchers, moving innocent people into the vacated launch sites, and moving fighters into the tunnels. A ceasefire is a free gift to them.

Yet another instance of incompetence by the Obama administration.

This operation is called "Protective Edge", and that is what Israel is making along the Gaza side of the border....a protective edge from which Hamas will have great difficulty tunneling through or launching rockets from.

The United States is now completely impotent in the Middle East.  Team Obama, Kerry and Hagel have so badly damaged relations with Israel it will take years to rebuild after Obama.

Let's hope so.
All citizens of Gaza should be marched into the Mediterrean each morning to the top the neck.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.
