Planned cease-fire fails as Egypt's prime minister visit Gaza

Explosions rumbled through Gaza all night into Friday, as Palestinian health officials reported an additional death in the conflict with Israel, bringing the total toll to 20.

The fighting left 235 wounded, Palestinian officials said, as Israeli officials reported no new deaths Friday, saying a total of three have died from rocket fire since fighting broke out.

    Well all you good humanists.
    The most militarized nation in the world attacks the narrow enclave of Gaza with combat aircraft and artillery killing civilians and wreaking havoc. 21 killed including 6 children (an 11 month old baby). hitting 150 sites with missiles. to mislead Americans.
    The US media as always narrates'Palestinians started it'- a manufactured lie.

      When it comes to Gaza, the lies are from both sides...all I can reiterate is what I said before, differently worded:
      I have a lot of patience, HOWEVER, I WILL strike back if someone continuously attacks me day in and day out, and if I have superior fire power, perhaps it should make those who attack think twice before continuously waging an onslaught...if someone doesn't want the 'bully' to strike back, perhaps it's unwise to keep needling them.

      So true. Let the people of the all hailed UN vote on a recognized Palestine without threats of taking money away! The UN Secretary General should be in Gaza in a couple of days, as reported.

    I believe this because if the world did not want this than the US and Israel wouldn't have to threaten nations whom support a vote on the UN floor with removal of financial aide.

    Hey, RevNow, what's the haps?
    CNN has been very busy preventing us from posting, although they seem to be extremely lenient of the hijacker troll.

I'm aggravated with this blog but I ain't going away that easy. 😉

    Israel underestimate Palestine new powers, Russia intelligence is positioned in Syria from there operations are conducted including arms transit to attack Israel, Israel will be under attack from Palestine but tactical operations are conducted from Syria concealed by their social turmoil.
