“All Palestinian factions shall stop all hostilities from the Gaza Strip against Israel, including rocket attacks and all attacks along the border.

“Opening the crossings and facilitating the movement of people and transfer of goods and refraining from restricting residents’ free movements and targeting residents in border areas, and procedures of implementation shall be dealt with after 24 hours from the start of the ceasefire.

“Other matters as may be requested shall be addressed.”

“Implementation mechanism:

“Setting up the zero hour understanding to enter into effect.

“Egypt shall receive assurances from each party that the party commits to what was agreed upon.

    What does Hamas have to do other than receive more arms from Iran?

  3. Yudha Lkp Skill Pyk says:

    to kill jewish soldier…

  4. What a joke!! Why would Israel EVER agree to that? It will only enable the Gaza terrorists to re-arm and prepare for their next offensive. They must be laughing their asses off at Israel.

  5. HILARY AND BENYAMIN THE REAL TERORIST…

  6. Liad Bar-el says:

    A couple of hours after the "agreement" went into effect, Hamas fired 20 rockets against Israel. IMO, they already broke the "agreement"; so, now it's null and void.

  7. Anonymous says:

    keep that bitch clinton and her porn-star husband away from any negotiations with ISRAEL. She only represents the interests of herself and the USA and in no way represents or cares about anyone in that area of strife.

Minister and chair of Bayit Yehudi party, Naftali Bennett.

The primary road block is the position that Bayit Yehudi party head Naftali Bennett will receive.

Baruch Marzel.

Marzel not sorry Yachad party’s loss cost Bayit Yehudi seats in Knesset. Bennett accuses Netanyahu of thinking he is a sucker.

Yoav Horowitz

Who is Horowitz? He’s Netanyahu’s eyes and ears. He’s very close to him, literally his personal representative everywhere…

This is a chart of the rocket and missile arsenal that initiated Israel's counter terror Operation Protective Edge, and was used by Hamas and allied terrorists -- and was fired from site deep within the Gaza civilian population against Israel's families, in the thousands, for 50 days. At least 11 cease-fires were broken by Hamas.

in a new report, Amnesty International charges “Gaza armed groups’ with war crimes in last summer’s Operation Protective Edge.

If there are no surprises, Netanyahu is expected to form a coalition, after some tough negotiations, with the Likud, Bayit Yehudi, Kulanu, Yisrael Beytenu, UTJ and Shas.

One wonders how many Prime Ministers Herzog envisions sitting in that one chair at the same time.

Netanyahu is expected to have 61 recommendations in his favor.

There’s much disappointment within Yesh Atid as they head into the oppositions.

Final voter counts are in, if Yachad doesn’t petition the courts over voter fraud…

“The truth is it’s surprising to us as well, but it turns out each one of us voted their hearts.”

The anti-Bibi campaign’s quiet change in tax status both came too late and constitutes an admission of wrongdoing.

If the media hadn’t been so eager to oust Netanyahu, voter apathy could have made that happen.

Netanyahu said he wants to have a government formed within the next 2 to 3 weeks.

The overwhelming electoral victory by the Likud was nothing less than a revolution, and an absolutely clear mandate from the people.

At 50% of the votes counted, the Likud pulls way ahead… but what will the remaining 50% do?

A very happy PM Netanyahu declared victory at the Likud victory party.
