Egypt announces cease-fire agreement between Israel and Hamas
LA Times ^ | November 21-2012 | Emily Alpert

Posted on 11/21/2012 10:47:59 AM PST by yoe

Egypt announced a cease-fire agreement between Israel and Hamas effective Wednesday evening local time, the Associated Press reported.

In details of the agreement obtained by the news agency, Israel will cease all military activity against the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip at 9 p.m. local time (11 a.m. PST) and Palestinian militants will cease rocket attacks into Israel. After 24 hours of quiet, Gaza's border crossings with Israel will be opened further to allow freer movement of goods and people.

The announcement by Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohamed Amr and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton followed talks in Cairo between Clinton and Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi.

I am all for no killing, but Israel is getting played again. Most likely a threat from the WH (although no one knows who authorized it) to stop the bombing or risk losing money from the US.

Israel agrees to stop taking out Arab launch sites.

Arabs agree to not to fire more than 1,000 missiles per day into Israel.

Europe accepts Israel’s part in this, and heaps praises on the Arabs for once again showing how interested they are in being peaceful productive players on the world stage.

Europe adds, “We’ll be sending increased funds so you an repair all the damage Israel caused.” The Arabs lick their lips and pull out their Iranian Arms catalog.

Europe once again pats itself on the back for bringing peace to the Middle-East, even if it may only be temporary for some strange reason...

How many times has this play been run and Israel always pulls up short while the terrorists rearm and prepare for the next attack. Israel will perish unless it is prepared to do what is unthinkable in the West.

Heard Oliver North say much the same thing yesterday, it’s that weaponry access would dry up. I hate we have that kind of power over Israel. And here comes Hitlery smelling like a rose!

Word is that a cease-fire was agreed to yesterday but they waited for HRC to show up to announce it.

Another 10 such supposedly even-handed cease fires and Israel will cease to exist.

Did this communists Bitc! consult Israel? Oh, Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood is in control of the entire region. If I were Israel I would tell this sick Bitc! to go to hell and wipe out Gaza and hit Egypt where it hurt.

I heard Obama promised Israel more money for Iron Dome. No idea what he promises his friends in hamas.

I wouldn’t immediately assume this is bad for Israel. They did a heck of a lot of damage.

And I don’t think spending life and treasure in Gaza when Iran is cheering them on, is a strategic win.

Also, Israel may attack if Gaza does not abide. This could also be Israel letting Hamas show they do not wish a ceasefire.

Finally, lasting peace and now everyone is safe. I can already see the Hamas terrorists and Jews having fun on the beaches, together.

It’s a darn good thing the People of the Entire World have Obama and Clinton to guide us FORWARD to a peaceful future.

Oh, I do have a question —

**WHO in the hell gave the damn order to NOT rescue our men in Benghazi?**

It looks like Slick Willie's wife is going to be able to check the Ignoble "Peace" Prize off of her bucket list. Everybody gets a trophy! (As long as you are a commie lib.) She's set for her run in 2016 now! The Republicans need to save their money and not bother running anybody.

This just in via FNC. 15 minutes after the "cease fire", rockets are being fired into Israel. I guess the terrorists didn't get the memo. LOL!

Evidently, about 15 minutes. It went into effect about 2pm Eastern, and rockets were fred about 2:15pm Eastern.

An even funnier thing about this is Israel never was consulted about any cease fire.

Egypt announces cease-fire agreement between Israel and Hamas

Riiiiiiggggghhhhhtttttt!!! I'm certainly buying THIS line of BS.

What Egypt is ACTUALLY announcing is that Israel will honor a cease fire, but Hamas will keep on shooting.

Peace my butt bisquits!

When you are a welfare country like Israel taking our money for years and years, we will have power over you. Very easy to see.

12 hours?

The rockets continue as we speak. To make matters even more ludicrous, the Israeli Defense Minister said, "This is to be expected."

Damn the torpedos! Full speed ahead!

I’ve been following Ben Hartman, of the Jerusalem Post, on Twitter. He’s counted 12 rockets since the cease-fire!

Two words, my Israeli brothers:

No Quarter.

Clausewitz was right. The only way to stop an ideological enemy is to take the war to him and crush him so thoroughly he will be incapable of coming against you for the foreseeable future.

That was my first thought.

What size bribe did we pay Morsi and Hamas? And how many days before it falls apart?

Yes. Oliver North said that the U.S. will threaten to slow the delivery of vital parts for key aspects of the Israeli armed forces. My question: If Israel can make a nuclear missile why can’t they manufacture all necessary parts for the maintenance of a fighter jet, for example? Or is it not a matter of technological prowess and simply the deal they signed with the U.S. in order to get those fighter jets.

I say we don’t make it to the opening of the stock market on Monday morning before Hamas is firing more rockets.

According to Twitter feeds the Hudna only lasted about 15 minutes before the barrage resumed.
Israel of course is expected to refrain from retaliation no matter how much blowing up HamAss whips on them.

It’s only fair... for the children...

That is certainly an interesting question, but of course such a munitions operation would be target 1 for every terrorist in the ME. Probably a lot safer on one hand to get from the US. It’s just that when you shake hands with the US lately, you had better count your fingers when you draw back.
