If Buzzfeed is credible and this is true, it only serves to prove how foolish the US leadership is. Hamas promised to stop firing missiles and to honor a ceasefire which died days after its signing, 5 years ago. My memory isn't so bad as to forget that even then, Hamas blamed the missile firings on Islamic Jihad, passing the blame and hiding behind another group allowed to exist in Gaza by Hamas. This sounds like yet another Taquiyya joke on Team Obama. Arabs are great at lying and using proxies. No one should negotiate with terrorists. Ever.
Roger surely the American people must be so sick of this President and embarrassed at what he is doing.I live in UK and we fair much the same as you,we have a very weak Government who is so politically correct.Just recently they passed some legislation that allows a muslim nurse not to wash their hands when they treat patients.The muslims say that it compromises their dignity under Shariah law.

ARE WE GRASSHOPPERS OR ARE WE MEN AND WOMEN ISRAEL?
The biggest error Bibi and the left have made is an assumption that Israel has only one ally in the world, the US, and must cowtow matter who or what the POTUS says, no matter how wrong or weak he is.
In the end the Israeli leadership believe they are grasshoppers.
The Israeli left and Bibi need to be convinced of their power- that they have more than they believe they do.
The power of that relationship is based on something that the POTUS cannot manipulate easily.: The American People are not that easily manipulated because the values of Israel are the same as those of America.
By contrast the Arab society represents EVERYTIHING America despises: intolerance, cruelty, hatred of America, political violence, civil right abuses, hatred of women, gays etc.
These are things that the POTUS cannot easily change. Also our domestic constituency. The Jews, rights wing Christians.
US supports Israel because of a valuable domestic program (military) that protects American workers with good jobs. This support comes from Congress, hence the relationship is economic, not in the political ability of the POTUS to turn on and off to punish Israel.
As for BDS, it's a bluff, the American trade laws cannot be abrogated with the stroke of a pen.
One of Bibi's biggest failures above all has been to not properly using the American Jewish community and Israeli supporters to defang Obama and reign him in. He has allowed Obama's policy of distancing itself and damaging Israel to go unchallenged in the US via Bibi's own submissiveness. In other words if he says the two state solution is in the interests of Israel, there iso nothing we here in the US as supporters can do. He has us ham stringed.
Thus, Obama has been empowered by Bibi's actions. Bibi has done more than just go along. He has told the US that everything that is going on is in Israel's interest- a domestic and political imperative. He has defanged us here in the US from brining Obama down. So if Bibi says publicly that he goes along with Obama, how can we oppose him here in the US.—we Jews in the US and our Congress cannot be more Catholic than the Pope
I believe that ISRAEL has way more power than she exercises contrary to what Bibi and the left believes.
If Israel's leaders truly desire to surrender the country and capitulate, there is all the time in the world — however we can FIGHT FIRST.
Roger Cerdas, we can't do nothing against them. Especially not by talking about them nicely in social media.
This cancer requires actions, but the European political parties which would be willing to do something about them are too small.
And in North America there is none who would do anything about Islamisation. Only talks and talks and talks.
