IBA News reports that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu decided to acquiesce to the Egyptian request to not shoot at the Gaza Strip during the visit of Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Qandil, which is expected to take place Friday morning and last about 3 hours.

A diplomatic source says this was the message that was transmitted back to Egypt, that the IDF will not shoot, provided that during the visit there will not be firing from Gaza into Israel.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Strategic Affairs Moshe Ya’alon told Israel Radio that the IDF is prepared for a ground operation in the Gaza Strip if Hamas refuses to commit to along-term ceasefire. “We’ll wait and see when Hamas will understand the message; if the message does not get through via the Air Force – we will expand the operation, ” Ya’alon told Aryeh Golan on the “This Morning “show on Channel 2.

Ya’alon added that operation “Pillars of Defense” is being managed well and emphasized that one of the goals is the destruction of Hamas’ more advanced weapons they’ve acquired in recent years, especially the Iranian “Fajr” missiles which can reach Gush Dan (Tel Aviv). He said that only has a few missiles remaining of this type, and the IAF is now operating to also destroy the Grad rockets.

    I sure hope this not a sign of Israel quitting before the job is done. We all know rockets will fly again as soon as possible……and by the way I don't care who is coming to Gaza for a visit. They should have come months earlier, and may have avoided this situation altogether. I don't believe our work is done in Gaza.

  2. Yori Yanover says:

    We do. They receive food, fuel, electricity and medical care while their rockets are falling in our cities.

  3. Sean Winkler says:

    That is such a lie. Zionists bring nothing but death and destruction. Zionists occupy Palestine and steal Palestinian land for the building of illegal settlements. Yori what do you say to the real Jews about their claims to end the Palestinian occupation? Read the Talmud. Jews in exile are forbidden to have their own state.

    Only idiots would believe again in a "truce" (which means "we cease, they fire") promised for the 37th time in seven years by a terrorist organization that never stopped trying to INTENTIONALLY kill civilians, women, children, elderly, by shooting "statistical" weapons (non precise ammo like mortars and rockets) at Israeli cities and villages.
    It's insanity. Albert Einstein rightly defined it like this:
    "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
    Just like was done with the nazis, they must be bombed to submission, until they beg on their knees for an unconditional surrender.
    The so called "moderate" Muslim Brotherhood have stated their allegiance to Hamas, which BTW is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood. So, who cares what they say?
    As far as aid, there are thousands of pictures of markets filled to the brim and thousands and thousands of trucks with all sort of goods coming in from Israel. Stop your lies, Jew haters.

    Sean Winkler: until they stole even THAT, the term "Palestinian", as my grandmother's passport shows, was ONLY for the Jews living in the area of the British Mandate for the creation of a JEWISH HOMELAND, 78% of which was made JUDENREIN by the British – to serve their OIL interests – in 1926 with the creation of the Kingdom of Transjordan, kingdom where it is UNTIL TODAY ILLEGAL FOR JEWS TO LIVE!!!
    So, who is the liar? Learn some HISTORY. There was NEVER a kingdom, state or whatever called "Palestine", which was te name chosen by Roman Emperor Hadrian and by the following Jew haters, for what had been the Kingdom of Judea, after the Romans captured it and EXILED over 1 1/2 million Jews from there, after murdering about 2 millions of us. In spite of that, Jews were ALWAYS there, http://www.eretzyisroel.org/~peters/ , MUCH BEFORE THE ARAB INVASIONS, and were even the majority in Jerusalem as even Karl Marx – then correspondent of a US Paper – stated in 1854! http://is.gd/NDL8NS … THAT IS WAY BEFORE THE TERM ZIONISM WAS EVEN INVENTED!!!
    We have been praying three times a day for three thousand years toward Jerusalem, and even more (that is EVERY TIME WE EAT BREAD or fruit, besides the daily prayer!) for our return there. You are just an antisemite, since there is enough info around on the net for all this.

    Jews and the holocaust, you say? Time for your history lesson! http://www.jewsnotzionists.org/holocaust-zionism.htm

    Sean Winkler : don't INVENT the Talmud, which NOWHERE says anything like that, and actually says EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE:
    (click for the complete text, translation and notes:
    http://www.halakhah.com/kethuboth/kethuboth_110.html#PARTb ) Ketubot 110b:

    “Our Rabbis taught: One should always live in the Land of Israel, even in a town most of whose inhabitants are idolaters, but let no one live outside the Land, even in a town most of whose inhabitants are Israelites; for whoever lives in the Land of Israel may be considered to have a god, but whoever lives outside the Land may be regarded as one who has no god. For it is said in Scripture, To give you the Landof Canaan, to be your God. Has he, then, who does not live in the Land, no god? But [this is what the text intended] to tell you, that whoever lives outside the Land may be regarded as one who worships idols. Similarly it was said in Scripture in [the story of] David, For they have driven me out this day that I should not cleave to the inheritance of the Lord, saying: Go, serve other gods. Now, whoever said to David, ‘Serve other gods’? But [the text intended] to tell you that whoever lives outside the Land may be regarded as one who worships idols. ”

    Some IGNORAMUSES and some EVILDOERS IN BALCK WITH LONG BEARDS who kiss their brother Ahmedinejad then decide Halakhà on the basis of HAGGADIC material (Three Oaths) in the same chapter. See how Rabbi Menachem Kasher destroys such argument http://www.daat.ac.il/daat/kitveyet/shana/daat-2.htm

    As far as the other legend invented by rabbis in exile, that the Messiah must come before we go back to Israel etc., that contradicts even the order of the Amidah, the solemn silent prayer we say three times a day at least, in which not only the ingathering of the exiles, but even the Sanhedrin (our judges) and the Temple come before "Tsemach David", that is the Messiah… And THAT ORDER IS NOT APHAZARD, and it was decided by the Great Assembly at the time of the Prophet Ezra, an Assembly which included TWELVE PROPHETS!
    So, the Satmar cult and the comfortable galut rabbis should learn better, and you should too.

    Sean Winkler: I NEVER MENTIONED THE SHOAH (Holocaust is used by antisemites: we DID NOT burn as an offering to God!), I compared Hamas to the Nazis… but YOUR mention of it shows that you are just a HYPOCRITE SATMAR OR SOME IRANIAN AGENT, or some useful idiot spewing propaganda and LYING FROM BOTH SIDES OF YOUR MOUTH, considering that the Satmar Rebbe, Mr. Yoel Teitelboim, after LYING to all of his people saying that NOTHING WOuLD HAPPEN TO THEM and ABOVE ALL NOT TO GO TO ISRAEL, ran away on traitor's Kastner's train under the auspice of Eichmann!!! Just learn some REAL HISTORY (like the book "Perfidy" by Ben Hecht) and some REAL TORAH (if your masters and your brainwashing allow you to) written by the Mishne' Sachir, Rabbi Shlomo Issachar Teichtal, ztuq"l, Hi"d, in 1943, while he was hiding from the Nazis in Budapest:

    Sean Winkler: BTW, I am not going to go on with you.
    I am NOT INTERESTED in antisemites, I am interested in OUR PEOPLE. What I wrote before was ONLY for MY PEOPLE'S USE, not for you and your kind. So, I stop. Nazis and their allies should not be dealt with except through the barrel of a gun, like the Allies and the Partisans did.

  10. Sean Winkler says:

    You are correct about one thing: insanity. Insanity IS doing the same thing over and over expecting different results. Have you not noticed that since 1948 the Zionists have been trying the same thing, the creation of a Jewish state in Palestine, through the use of force with NO SUCCESS? The Zionist occupation of Palestine is truly insane.

    And my friend, if you bring up Nazi's then you are indeed referencing the Holocaust. Why else would you mention Nazi's other than to reference their evil doing. However what I feel you've overlooked is the collaboration between the Nazi's and your Zionist brothers.

    IS IT TRUE that in 1941 and again in 1942, the German Gestapo offered all European Jews transit to Spain, if they would relinquish all their property in Germany and Occupied France; on condition that:
    a) none of the deportees travel from Spain to Palestine; and
    b) all the deportees be transported from Spain to the USA or British colonies, and there to remain; with entry visas to be arranged by the Jews living there; and
    c) $1000.00 ransom for each family to be furnished by the Agency, payable upon the arrival of the family at the Spanish border at the rate of 1000 families daily.

    IS IT TRUE that the Zionist leaders in Switzerland and Turkey received this offer with the clear understanding that the exclusion of Palestine as a destination for the deportees was based on an agreement between the Gestapo and the Mufti.

    IS IT TRUE that the answer of the Zionist leaders was negative, with the following comments:
    a) ONLY Palestine would be considered as a destination for the deportees.
    b) The European Jews must accede to suffering and death greater in measure than the other nations, in order that the victorious allies agree to a "Jewish State" at the end of the war.
    c) No ransom will be paid

    IS IT TRUE that this response to the Gestapo's offer was made with the full knowledge that the alternative to this offer was the gas chamber.

    IS IT TRUE that in 1944, at the time of the Hungarian deportations, a similar offer was made, whereby all Hungarian Jewry could be saved.

    IS IT TRUE that the same Zionist hierarchy again refused this offer (after the gas chambers had already taken a toll of millions).

    IS IT TRUE that during the height of the killings in the war, 270 Members of the British Parliament proposed to evacuate 500,000 Jews from Europe, and resettle them in British colonies, as a part of diplomatic negotiations with Germany.

    IS IT TRUE that this offer was rejected by the Zionist leaders with the observation "Only to Palestine!"

    IS IT TRUE that the British government granted visas to 300 rabbis and their families to the Colony of Mauritius, with passage for the evacuees through Turkey. The "Jewish Agency" leaders sabotaged this plan with the observation that the plan was disloyal to Palestine, and the 300 rabbis and their families should be gassed.

    IS IT TRUE that during the course of the negotiations mentioned above, Chaim Weitzman, the first "Jewish statesman" stated: "The most valuable part of the Jewish nation is already in Palestine, and those Jews living outside Palestine are not too important". Weitzman's cohort, Greenbaum, amplified this statement with the observation "One cow in Palestine is worth more than all the Jews in Europe".

  11. Phil Aghion says:

    Typical bull Philistinian propaganda, po fuking GazaNAzis aren't getting enough food, tough , they've got Egypt next door let him run to them GOOFY WHITE BOY. PHILISTINIAN SHILLS are duped fools who promote WESTERN IMPERIALISM CLOAKED IN FAKE Revolutionary garb….DUPES answer this SHILL How did the 'Palestinian movement' emerge? The British sponsored it. Then the German Nazis, and the US.

  12. Chaiya Eitan says:

    Hamas took advantage of that and fired at us!

  13. Chaiya Eitan says:

    No cease fire!! Only the white flag of surrender from Hamas!

  14. Chaiya Eitan says:

    No…that isn't a lie. Even during Operation Cast Lead, trucks filled with food and other supplies continued to be delivered to Gaza. Have you seen the photo of Haniyeh holding up a bunch of Israeli grapes?

  15. Sean Winkler says:

    Face it, Zionists are Anti-semites. End of story. No real Jew would ever bomb another people into submission, let alone occupy their country and then claim to be the victims.

  16. Sean Winkler says:

    Funny you say you're not interested in antisemites, yet you are one. Zionism = Anti Semitism. FACT.

  17. Sean Winkler says:

    Palestine is occupied, and people who are occupied have a right to self defense. Clearly you must understand that much…

  18. Chaiya Eitan says:

    You're a jerk….it isn't even worth talking to you.
