Update: Netanyahu Agrees to Cease-Fire without Dis-Arming Hamas

If Netanyahu cracks, Israel about to pay through the nose for not finishing up the job of beheading, figuratively speaking, the Hamas regime.

Mahmoud Abbas has announced that Hamas has begin a cease-fire at 7 p.m., and Prime Minister Netanyahu told a somewhat upset Cabinet that he has agreed.

Massive rocket fire continued up until the beginning of the open-ended truce and even fifteen minutes afterwards.

Both Abbas, chairman of of the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah, and Ismail Haniyeh, his unofficial but de facto partner in Gaza, said Tuesday afternoon that Hamas was about to announce a long-term truce, but Khaled Mashaal, Hamas’s supreme authority who rejected or quickly broke previous ceasefire, has been mum.

Israel’s defensive stance, or secret negotiations behind the human shield of southern Israelis, left it without much choice other than to agree to the cease-fire since Netanyahu, par for the course, did not stick to his word that there would be no cease-fire without disarming Hamas.

Hamas has claimed “victory,” and the massive rocket fire immediately before and after Abbas’ announcement was a Hamas ploy to show Arabs how it can pummel Israel at will and then force the Netanyahu government to accept a cease-fire.

The agreement does not mention anything about dis-arming Hamas except to leave it for “negotiations” in a month.

We’ve been in this movie before, and if this cease-fire ploy is a re-run of broken promises, it won’t last long.

If it does, time will tell if it is nonsense anyway.

History has proven that is the case, but if  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and of the other self-appointed saviors of the Middle East jump on the a truce as a catalyst for more peace talks, meaning surrender by Israel, the  cease-fire could hold long enough until Abbas and his true peace partner Hamas stop getting what he wants.

If it does,  it’s rocket time again.

  14. Sheli Shahal says:

    Migo – there are so many factors and reasons to be addressed and, with all due respect, I am not certain you are aware of them. I HOPE PM Netanyahu does not cave in to the HUGE GLOBAL pressure applied on Israel – because this ugly world does not give a damn about ISRAEL and its EXOSTENCE!!!!!

  15. If Kerry gets involved tell him to shut up and go home! Stop Hamas before the ceasefire. Ceasefires don’t work out well for Israel.

  16. Ed Kaplan says:

    I wonder what Obama and curry would say if Netanyahu involved and told them what to do with US policies them send them home level Gaza be done with it!

  17. Isaac Kim says:

    Lies… blatent lies!!!

  18. Dave Bergen says:

    Hamas couldn’t tell the truth and stick to a ceasefire to save there life.

  19. Oren Meldung says:

    for how long? they broke the last one and the one before that… is the western world, the EU and the rest of the world so blind as to believe them this time? Hamas needs to go… end of discussion.

  20. Cori LBere says:

    Israel best start digging those graves they will need….. to cave into lies and and pretend that Islamic jihad is not happen from Hamas-IsIs is a death wish and lack of sound judgement from Bibi and the Gov. Sad when a Gov. Shows more care for killers then for their own home and family…sad days indeed.

  21. Ian Conger says:

    Don’t do it! keep going!

  22. Just do the job who cares what anyone thinks. For the love of G-d this is out of control. No one needs to live in constant danger like Israelites do.

  23. Karen Bryant says:

    It will be “the lull before the storm.” Pray, pray, pray.

  24. 115 rocket attacks by the muslims in gaza since 16:59:30 (when this deal was announced) through the last assault at 19:15:12 No such thing as a cease fire with the beasts of satan and yes, netanyahu is also now officially a “beast of satan” Study Torah and you too will know what I said is true. Kick netanyahu out of our country NOW! he is a traitor to the Land of HaShem EchaD! Period.

  25. Carolin Knox says:

    Israel agreed, so quiet for a few days, till Hamas gets more rockets. Sadly, Bibi is unwilling to stand against world condemnation, plus many have been getting hurt (killed) from rockets.

  26. Mark Rader says:

    A big mistake just finish the job

  27. They will kill each other as they have already started, pointing fingers at each other. God says, the war is His, you keep quiet and see His salvation. Believe and trust in the Word of God and keep reminding God of His protection!
