Negotiations between Israel and the Hamas terrorist group were supposed to recommence this Wednesday in Cairo, but someone with a Jewish calendar must have finally realized that Wednesday night begins the High Holiday of Rosh Hashana, and the timing was not the best.

So, the “indirect” negotiations were pushed forward by one day, to this Tuesday.


Presumably Israel will tell Hamas to demilitarize, and Hamas will respond by demanding a sea and air port, so they can more easily import larger missiles, then everyone will wish each other happy new year, and go home.

Whether or not an unsatisfied Hamas will launch rockets at Israel during the holidays remains to be seen.

  1. The Hamas is making war against Israel, because it is firing rockets towards Israel and it intends to destroy Israel. It is written in the Torah, in Deuteronomy 20:10-18, that God commanded that, in the war, Israel kill all the enemies. So, the State of Israel must kill all the members of the Hamas, including those who are imprisoned. Therefore, there must not be ceasefire until the last member of the Hamas is killed. The State of Israel must kill all members of the Hamas, instead of just destroying their infrastructure, tunnels and weapons. If the State of Israel destroys the Hamas infrastructure, tunnels and weapons, but does not kill all the members of Hamas, they will rebuild the infrastructure and the tunnels and will acquire new and more modern weapons, and will continue to throw rockets towards Israel. The State of Israel must make war as God commanded in Deuteronomy 20:10-18, killing all the enemies.
