Palestinians: We Rejected Israel’s 90-Day Ceasefire Offer

They demand removing the blockade of the Israeli navy on Gaza.

Sources in the Hamas and Islamic Jihad leadership have told the newspaper Al-Hayat that Israel offered them a cease-fire for 90 days, during which it would examine their goodwill efforts prior to a discussion of Palestinian demands. But the Palestinians said they refused the offer, and stuck by their three points: a mutual ceasefire, an end to targeted assassinations and the opening all the entrances into Gaza as soon as the ceasefire takes effect. Those entrances include the Gaza port, which is blockaded by the Israeli navy.

The rejection came after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in Jerusalem. that “in the days ahead the United States will work with our partners here in Israel and across the region toward an outcome that bolsters security for the people of Israel, improves conditions for the people of Gaza and moves toward a comprehensive peace for all people of the region.”

All those nice things will have to wait. Or, as Prime Minister Netanyahu told Clinton: “If there is a possibility of achieving a long-term solution to this problem with diplomatic means, we prefer that, but if not, I’m sure you understand that Israel will have to take whatever action is necessary to defend its people.”

    I reject the very idea that Israel made those murderers an offer. The only controlling factor that a terrorists is willing to accept is a 9mm piece of copper.

  3. Lee Tibensky says:

    You can't possibly broker a ceasefire with murderous animals.go into Gaza and take out every terrorist you can. You can count on the majority of Americans to stand beside you.its gotten just ridiculous.Go in and finish this bull****.
    Go get Iran too… all of them are monsters That hate the real God. And pray to this joke that is allah.. a false god that tells his people to be murderers

  4. Dave Lobell says:

    Today is a very sad day for Israel there will never peace with these people who hell bent on the total annihilation of the Jewish people. How many more Jews will now die because our leaders hold out hope for this preposterous fantasy of Peace. I will continue to Daven for the safety of all of my Jewish Brothers and Sisters who live in constant fear; may they all merit the protection of the Divine Presence.

Since the passing of the Governance bill legislation on March 11, 2014, new alignments have become to appear in Israeli politics.

Yair Lapid has announced his Yesh Atid list for the upcoming elections….

The small right-wing parties will hurt their ideological allies and voters, unless they get past their egos and ideological perfectionism and help their side for a change.

Netanyahu will reportedly be offering a spot on the Likud list to Caroline Glick.

Apparently the Arabs believe that all these years they voted for Labor, they were not voting for a Zionist party.

Likud pulls ahead, and quite incredibly Shas is making a comeback, but forming a coalition still depends on the small parties.

They were afraid they would not pass the electoral threshold running separately.

The IDF will award 53 soldiers, among them 4 women, military decorations for their service during this past summer’s Operation “Protective Edge”.

The merged Labor party, AKA the “Zionist Camp” headed by Yitzchak Herzog and Tzipi Livni, has drafted former military intelligence chief Amos Yadlin to fill its vacuum for a future Defense Minister if it forms the next government. Israel Radio (Voice of Israel) was quick to promote Yadlin Tuesday morning with soft-glove questions that allowed […]

Yisrael Beytenu introduced his list, and even added a native English speaker, even if he stuck him in an unrealistic spot.

The popular right-wing Knesset Member now is in the 20th place on the list of candidates.

The inclusion of Hager may help Yishai’s party get enough voters to be elected to the Knesset.

The younger generation is decidedly left-wing and right-wing.
