As news of some details of the ceasefire deal proposed by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry emerges, we also learn that the entire cabinet of Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu rejected the proposal.

Some in the Israeli media quoted sources who described Kerry’s proposal as “the Qatari plan, with some ornaments.”

But Kerry continued with his efforts and announced that “we are working towards a brief, seven-day humanitarian ceasefire,” and just a few hours later, Netanyahu made another announcement.

“We agreed to consider a 12-hour ceasefire proposed by U.N.’s Ban ki-Moon,” Netanyahu stated, according to i24 News.

    Bibi’s cabinet unanimously rejected Kerry’s ceasefire proposal,
    Do you know how bad something must be for 23 Jews from 6 different Parties to agree on something unanimously?

  31. Marco Singer says:

    Ceasefire, where the Israeli soldiers are in the middle of the operation and in urban area would lead only to losses of IDF soldiers life !

    Already twice agreed ceasefire was broken the Hamas, Fatah & Co. terrorist.

  37. He’s such a wanker. Though he did pull off a miracle by getting the whole cabinet to agree to something- not sure that’s ever happened before. How much more money will Qatar get for their bs “cease fire” proposals.
