Obama, Egypt's president discuss Gaza

President Barack Obama called Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy on Saturday to discuss the ongoing violence in Gaza.

Egypt's intelligence chief is spearheading talks with Hamas and Israel to forge a stop to the three days of warring that has engulfed Gaza and the Jewish state and head off an Israeli ground offensive into the besieged Palestinian territory.

Obama praised Egypt's efforts to de-escalate the situation, and said he hoped they worked. He also expressed regret for the loss of civilian lives.

    Palestine was invaded on May 14, 1948, at the end of the British mandate, the Jewish Agency, led by David Ben-Gurion, declared the creation of the State of Israel, and the same day the armies of seven Arab countries invaded Israel.

    Later, a series of laws passed by the first Israeli government prevented Palestinians from returning to their homes thence became the outcasts of their own land, nor could claim their property ever again.

    It happens to everyone even the IRS. I'm sure you'll find that I am squeaky clean but doubt there will be a refund this year.
