Hamas and allies declare ceasefire

 

Gazans' attempts at rescuing trapped bodies were hampered by continued attacks on Sunday [AFP]

Hamas and their allied Palestinian factions have announced an immediate one-week ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, giving Israel a week to pull out of the territory.

The move, following a meeting of the factions in Damascus on Sunday, comes a day after Israel called a unilateral truce, ending its 22-day offensive in Gaza which led to the deaths of 1,203 Palestinians. 

"Hamas and the factions announce a ceasefire in Gaza starting immediately and give Israel a week to withdraw," Ayman Taha, a senior Hamas official talking from Cairo, said.

Hamas also demanded that Israel open all of the Gaza Strip's border crossings to allow in food and other goods to meet the "basic needs for our people".

Israel had already said on Sunday that it will not consider a timetable for withdrawing all of its forces from the Gaza Strip until Hamas and other groups cease their fire.

So Hamas will call a cease fire for a week so Israel can leave...and then start launching rockets at civilians again? They aren't doing themselves any favors.



You can find me on facebook as Markus Van Rijn, if you friend me just mention you're from VGchartz and who you are here.

Hamas cannot demand to Israel and the IDF their demands. They started this shit and whine when they can't get enough bloody kids to film for our liberal media. Israel should wipe Hamas clean and keep a antiterror oversight force in Gaza (Shin Bet anyone?)



Israel needs to go in an completely clear out Chamas. But now that the cease-fire has been called, Israel needs to put on an international press conference that if even one rocket is fired, or one terrorist attack ensues, then a full declaration of war will ensue at that moment, and all future cease-fire requests will be ignored.

Therefore, if Chamas has learned their lesson, all is well. But Chamas is simply using this as a ploy to rearm, then let it be known that their will be no future mercy upon their souls.

So, if the world really does want to see peace, they need to go in and MAKE SURE that Chamas knows that they will be abandoned should they spark the ignition of war again.

No mercy for the lives of the foolish. If they really think that Allah will save them, then by all means, fire some more rockets... otherwise, thank Allah for having mercy on their souls and use this opportunity to help the Palestinian people instead of simply taking advantage of the silence to prepare for another war.

If Chamas is ignorant enough to start another war, then Israel should initiate a full scale invasion and wipe out the terrorists for once and for all.

And then let Fateh take a shot at peace... and if they pull the same crap, wipe them out too...

I don't care about world opinion. I'm just tired of my friends living in fear of rocket attacks, and worrying whether or not their kids will make it home alive. If Chamas wants peace, they have it... if they don't, then cut off the hand that dares to strike the innocent. And let us not forget the most important thing:

Exactly my thoughts. Unfortunately, my govenment thinks they've achieved what they wanted (sure... with Hamas openly declaring they'll get more weapons in anyway... talk about not learning from your mistakes).

This government has no backbone whatsoever. Why not end this once and for all? why pull out now just ot come in later again? its an INCREDIBLE failure and a missed oppurtunity. Not to mention that it's going with your tail between your legs.. again. On the next elections, they're all going home.

Had this been in my hands, I wouldn't be out until I achieved annihilation of Hamas and Israeli/American supervision over the Philadelphian pass... or whatever thats called in English. Then we would be well on our way to better times for both peoples. The demonstrators against the war all over the world can bite me. We had thousands of rockets fired at us from 2001 till now, where were you quiet all that time? hypocrite piece of shit bastards. We have rights just as the Gazans do. And we'll fight for them... if not in this war, then in the next one...
