The Israeli Cabinet met again for a second time in 24 hours to discuss ongoing negotiations with Hamas in Cairo. Talks are set to resume again on Sunday in the hopes of reaching and signing a long-term ceasefire agreement with the terror organization.

It is believed that basis for the negotiations now appears to be the 2012 accord reached after Operation Pillar of Defense, which among other things called for an end to rocket fire on Israel (never happened), the opening of border crossings under Egyptian and Israeli supervision (did happen), and the transfer of money to Gaza through PA President Mahmoud Abbas (which is more of an internal Palestinian Authority problem).

But much of the negotiations remain shrouded in secrecy and rumor, as some reports say that Israel agreed to a Gaza sea port in exchange for Hamas’s demilitarization – terms which Hamas turned down, and other reports saying that Israel made no such offer.

What is clear is that the demilitarization of Gaza and Hamas no longer even appears to be seriously under discussion.

Other reports say that Israel agreed to the transfer of money to Hamas clerks, as long as there is oversight that it doesn’t go to Hamas terrorists, presuming one can tell the difference between the Hamas agent who fires a rocket, and the Hamas clerk who pays for the rocket to be built in the first place.

Netanyahu also updated the cabinet on the latest tensions between US President Obama against the Jewish State, specifically Obama’s new ban (or delay) on weapon sales to Israel – including those related to Iron Dome.

Netanyahu’s strategy seems to be to push the problems down the road – wait until Obama is no longer president, and then fight the next fight with Hamas then too.

  21. boy are we in trouble when wh supports terrorists

  22. Negotiations with Hamas is a time waster project. Israel must not for one second divert her focus on Iranian nuclear facilities. Prepare to dismantle the nuclear facilities forcefully if necessary and never trust a word from President Obama. Remember Hamas wants you out or dead therefore it’s not interested in negotiation. However, if talk of negotiation can make fool of you and give them time to prepare then why not?

  25. Carolin Knox says:

    Please….ramp up Israeli weapons production….even in underground facility…..you could retain security and sovereignty…not to mention $ for sales.

  26. Janet Berger says:

    Netanya should know that Obama has no plans to leave the white house. I hope I am wrong but that is my prediction.

  27. Obama is part of the Brotherhood. What a shame to all of us, Americans, even for the ones whom did not voted for him, Obama is an .

  28. Never changes muslims mode of war in all ages places with people. They invade maraud and enslave all of everything everywhere against everyone. They demand. They must be exterminated as we face this now. Banned from earth. Death to islam and deny all that support them.

  29. Sobriety Jon says:

    Did we hear support from d white house

  30. Brian Thau says:

    Not one inch should we give in to this ridiculous negotiations. Hamas must be demilitarized.

  31. I love Israel and GOD is always with you

  32. Obama has nothing to do with weapons shipped to Israel. Those monies are appropriated by Congress. Once Congress has acted he has no choice, he’s just blustering in an attempt to get a peace agreement.

  33. STAY STRONG Mr PM!!! M0BAMA SOLD $11BILLION ARMS TO QATAR LAST WEEK!!! ENOUGH CEASEFIRE! SMASH HAMAS! TAKE GAZA BACK!

  34. We, the American people, support Israel much more than we support our President Obama. He is on his own agenda. His behavior toward Israel has been unacceptable! We, as US citizens must continue to speak out & urge our Congressional Leaders to continue in their support for Israel. Obama should be “impeached” for his underhanded misdeeds, bad behavior with terrorist alliances & misrepresentation of our Country!

  35. Karen Bryant says:

    Praying that God gives wisdom to Israel’s leadership, and that they Heedhis guidance. Give Him the glory!
