Germany “Relieved” That Fighting Between Israelis and Gazans is Over

German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle applauded the ceasefire agreement between Gaza terror group Hamas and the State of Israel, saying on Wednesday that “if the ceasefire holds, this would be a great relief for all of us, but especially for the people of Israel and Gaza”.

Westerwelle said Germany would intervene wherever possible to assure that the ceasefire stays in place.

  1. Rc Fowler says:

    What business of Germany's is it? oh I know–they don't want Israel to destroy Hamas–because they like Hamas and what they stand for!

  2. Rc Fowler says:

    This so called but not cease fire–will not "hold"–this is just another lull in the ongoing war–this war with the Godless Muslim Arabs who are Hamas–will only end when they are all dead!

  3. Ruth Hirt says:

    Your wishes shall be realized if and only if you, Germany, cut off your financial supports which are funneled down to their evil works, malevolence.

  4. Rc Fowler says:

    Not even close to being correct.

  5. Anonymous says:

    NAZIS only care that HAMAS can continue killing innocent ISRAELIS. Keep the USA ( 4th REICH) out of ISRAELS' policy decisions.

  6. Lena Afonso says:

    I canno't imagine that most of writers here don't want a peace agreement. But it schocks me how irrational, emocional, anti-arab feelings are showing… jewish people are cosmopoliten, they moove easily around the world speaking so many languages, very intelligent and informed people, with a very strong culture! They are not people from "small town mentality", I mean people who likes to reduce reality to a picture black or white!
