Israel Sends Hamas 36-Hour Ultimatum
IsraelNationalNews ^ | 11/19/2012 | Gil Ronen

Diplomatic message to Egypt: Hamas terrorism must cease by Tuesday evening or we step up attack.

Israel has delivered an ultimatum to Hamas through Egypt, according to which the IDF will widen its offensive in Gaza in 36 hours unless Hamas ceases firing rockets and smuggling arms into Gaza, IDF Radio reported Monday morning.

Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz told the station that the time left before Israel steps up its attack can be measured in "hours, not days."

"We are at a junction," he said. "Either we go toward a calm or toward a meaningful widening of the operation… including a possible move to achieve complete military decision."

There are ongoing contacts between Israel and Hamas through intermediaries, IDF Radio said, but the gaps between the sides are still very large. According to reports in Cairo, Hamas demands a complete removal of the blockade on Gaza, an IDF commitment to stop crossing the security fence into Gaza and a cessation of targeted killings.

Israel, for its part, demands that Hamas cease firing rockets into Israel for a period of "several years" and a cessation of arms smuggling into Gaza. Israel agrees to Hamas's demand that the Rafiah crossing into Egypt be opened, but refuses to open crossings into Israel.

Hamas official Moussa Abu Marzuk said that Hamas will not agree to Israel's demands for a "security belt" on Gaza's eastern side, and a cessation of smuggling through the tunnels.

Remember, God has Israel’s back. Also remember that America is NEVER mentioned in the Bible.

Too bad Obama’s dad did not pull out early.

Israel needs to cut off the head of the hydra — Iran.

7 years, perhaps?

“...Obama will stop Israel even if he must send in Marines to guard and protect Gaza....”

I pray he doesn’t do that. Our boys will be on the wrong side. It will be ugly...verrrrrrrrry ugly.

Sure do. LeMay was one of my boyhood heroes.

This was a good film. George Wallace: Settin' the Woods on Fire (2000),

and PBS American Experience did a good one also. George Wallace: Settin' the Woods on Fire (2000)

Wallace was too much for the country to take, even back in the good old days.

I fail to see why they don’t just let ‘em have it, and be done with it. Surely Bibi’s not waiting for the green light from 0, is he?

They can always do like they did in Korea. Create a DMZ with 3 millions mines.

There are those who say you cannot win a war using only air power.
I say it depends on what the planes drop on the target

Tell Hamas they have 24 hours to evacuate the first 2 miles of Gaza, then burn it to the ground. Repeat as necessary.

Neat pic——A tanker always checks the lugs on his tank tracks before hitting the road. A tanker’s first prayer would be that they are all tight and ready to rock. Looks to me like this GI is about to roll.-—————————————————————————————————————————————And then there’s Hamas who is running out of “negotiating room “ real fast. This morning I saw a pic of one of their ammo dumps going up. The secondary was spectacular. They’ve proven they are not trustworthy so Bibi only has one real choice: disarm them and/or move them out. Anything else will last until next Monday.

Watched a 2 hour program on the History Channel last evening on the Roman Emperor Caligula. Reminded me of Obama the more they told about him. Taking power away from the Senate. Very narcissistic. Spent all the Roman Treasury. Wasted the money on parties and goofy ideas.

Was an excellent program on the beginning of the Fall of the Roman Empire. Highly recommend it. We have a lot in common with them during the same period.
