6:50 AM Sunday Morning Update

Shimon Ben-Hamu (23), a resident of Tekoa was killed on Saturday night when his car was hit by a large rock thrown at his car. Ben-Hamu lost control, the car overturned, and he was killed. (HNN)

After midnight, Israel saw a noticeably visible decrease in rockets shot from Gaza. While Israel continues to hit terrorist sites, some air attacks were called off due to the presence of too many civilians above the terror target sites (human shields). We are not yet speculating as to the reasons why Hamas fired less missiles overnight.

The Palestinian appealed to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and asked him to stop the Israel attacks, saying Israel was in violation of the Geneva convention.

Gazans are reportedly terrified of an Israeli ground invasion, and many have picked up and moved to the center of Gaza.

There are unconfirmed reports that some of the journalists that Hamas took as Human Shields may have been injured in an IAF strike. This is  still unconfirmed and will be updated as soon as we know more.

Rumors continue to fly about a possible Cease-Fire. Netanyahu denies the rumor is true.

  1. Ettore Greco says:

    Soon, the Zionists will re-enact their Plan. A new surprising event of great magnitude (like the destruction of Al Aqsa mosque) will expand everywhere the conflict between Jews, Muslims and Christians.

    The next World War of Religion is already a done deal behind the backs of all people which will be forced to fight for their own Countries in their obligation as citizens. This is to bring chaos and anarchy everywhere and to build in the end one New World Order ruled by a few with a new Pharaoh on top of their beloved pyramid of slavery.

    Now there is a need for one single alternative Front to oppose the very detailed Zionist Plan.
    The platform must focus on the resolution of that Human dilemma which is at the root of the conflict and that is the antagonism between Individualism and Equality. These two concepts have new meanings in light of a new scientific discovery that now binds one new Progressive Science to Religion.

    ……………

    Since 9/11 it's the War on Terror.

    One "false flag" attack so called by error.

    Blair, Bush, and Israel had a Pact in store.

    Their next surprise is knocking at your door.

    A hidden vile Idea from those who want "more".

    will use you and your Belief for the next World War.

    As "chosen people" gain while Humankind loses.

    Greed wins not by the swords but by the words of Moses.

    Daring is to tell you when, better then to tell you rhymes.

    could not side with either one to get ready for our times.

    to look beyond and past today to seek for a solution.

    one only hope is there for you and spells Wavevolution……………….

    A new type of Revolution wins with the ultimate weapon:

    Your Mind.

    Whatever you smoked today, please stop: it's too strong for you

  3. MAY HASHEM PROTECT OUR SAVA AMEN.

  4. Israel provides technology, medical advances, scientific achievements that win Nobel prizes…and the Arabs? They provide terror. From time immemorial, Jews build, Arabs destroy. If they spent the $ that the world gives them on achieving things to help mankind, instead of on weapons to bring us all back to the caves, what a world it would be.

  5. Dear Ettore…did you forget to take that little pink pill today?
