Ceasefire Talks Again

cease fire!

Once again there are talks of a cease fire being put together for this afternoon.

Qatar has managed to wiggle its way in, because of their special relationship with Hamas.

US Secretary of State John Kerry is waiting to hear back from the Qatari and Turkish Foreign Ministers about Hamas’s Khaled Mashaal’s response to Kerry’s  latest cease fire proposal.

The basics of the proposal have been reported as follows:

1. A one week cease fire, where the IDF will remain in Gaza and continue to destroy the Hamas terror tunnels.

2. Israel and Hamas will begin negotiations (!) over a permanent arrangement. The Palestinian Authority will participate in these talks.

3. The US, the UN and the EU will provide guarantees to both sides for their demands. For Israel – the dismantling of the Hamas rockets and tunnels. For Gaza – the end of the blockade.

If these reports on the conditions are correct, and Israel agrees to them, then Israel has essentially recognized Hamas, granting legitimacy to a terrorist organization as the political authority over Gaza, and it has agreed to negotiate with terrorists, instead of destroying them.

Not to worry, even if it accepts it, Hamas and Islamic Jihad are unlikely to be able to control themselves for an entire week.

The question is, will Israel choose to ignore Hamas breaches during the cease fire – and that answer is probably yes.

If Mashaal responds positively, the Israeli cabinet will vote on it this afternoon.

  11. “O God, do not remain quiet;
    Do not be silent and, O God, do not be still.
    For behold, Your enemies make an uproar,
    And those who hate You have exalted themselves.
    They make shrewd plans against Your people,
    And conspire together against Your treasured ones.
    They have said, “Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation,
    That the name of Israel be remembered no more.”
    For they have conspired together with one mind;
    Against You they make a covenant:
    The tents of Edom (Palestinians and Southern Jordanians) and the Ishmaelites (Saudis),
    Moab (Palestinians and Central Jordanians)and the Hagrites (Egyptian descendants of Hagar-not from Abraham);
    Gebal (Hezbollah and Northern Lebanese)and Ammon (Palestinians and Northern Jordanians) and Amalek (Arabs of Sinai area),
    Philistia (Hamas of Gaza strip) with the inhabitants of Tyre (Hezbollah and Southern Lebanese);
    Assyria (Syrians and Northern Iraqis) also has joined with them;
    They have become a help to the children of Lot. Selah.
    Deal with them as with Midian,
    As with Sisera and Jabin at the torrent of Kishon,
    Who were destroyed at En-dor,
    Who became as dung for the ground.
    Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb
    And all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
    Who said, “Let us possess for ourselves
    The pastures of God.”
    O my God, make them like the whirling dust,
    Like chaff before the wind.
    Like fire that burns the forest
    And like a flame that sets the mountains on fire,
    So pursue them with Your tempest
    And terrify them with Your storm.
    Fill their faces with dishonor,
    That they may seek Your name, O Lord. Let them be ashamed and dismayed forever,
    And let them be humiliated and perish, That they may know that You alone, whose name is the Lord,
    Are the Most High over all the earth.” -Psalm 83
