  1. They would be stupid to drop the demand, when the Hamas doesn’t keep cease fires if they don’t want to and always tries to strike first. The US should not be stupid either. Today Israel, tomorrow the sleeper cells in America will wake up.

  2. George Riesz says:

    With friends like this who needs enemies?The Obama Administration is keeping all terror groups alive with interfering in friendly countries policies and foreign aid but not acting on behalf of America either.Strange situation these days.

  3. Joe Barnett says:

    Although Shaat is a well-known liar as rep of the PLO regime, this might for once be true. If so the US must have really tightened the screws on Israel.

  4. Why listen to others Israel, why ? Do they listen to you ?

  5. Bibi, Do Not Listen To The US government. They Do Not Have Israel’s Best Interest At Heart.

  6. Bibi, Do Not Listen To The US government. They Do Not Have Israel’s Best Interest At Heart.

  7. Peter Gilbert says:

    Israel hasn't dropped anything and hasn't given anything. Whenever the rockets etc from Gaza would cease Israel would stop reacting. Hamas has been desperate to have a 'facesaver' to stop firing and has characterised the last couple of days as a victory. But apart from humanitarian aid being increased and the right to fish a bit deeper they have nothing. The 'Palestinians' are no closer to a State than they were in 1948.

  8. That is what one can expect from Obummer.
    Next, he will send weapons to Gaza. Don't trust that man further than you can spit.

  9. Once again President Obama has betrayed Israel and the Jewish People!

  10. Ignore Obama. He wants the destruction of Israel.

  11. On behalf of Ohio, I apologize.

  12. Jews should listen to Jews, Israelis to Israelis. The rest should go to hell.

  13. are you kidding letting them keep their amo

  14. Lies are an addiction to these guys
