Posted on 11/30/2023 7:21:55 AM PST by ChicagoConservative27
Israel and Hamas extended their truce into a seventh day at the last minute, with a deal that will see Hamas release eight Israeli and two Russian hostages, and the bodies of three hostages who died (or were murdered) in Hamas custody.
The extension also took place as U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken landed in Israel for talks with the Israeli government in Jerusalem and, later, the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah. Blinken and the Biden administration have been pushing for further and longer pauses in the fighting.
As the day broke Thursday, it was unclear “whether, and when” fighting would resume, as Israel’s Army Radio described the situation. But news broke at roughly ten minutes to 7:00 a.m. — the official end of the truce — that Israel would hold back to provide more time for mediation via Qatar, Egypt, and the U.S. Shortly thereafter, the extension was announced.

More threats coming from Obama.
Even today Kissinger is a more capable negotiator than Blinken.....
The US government is imposing this "ceasefire". I notice that two Palestinian terrorists just killed several people at a bus stop in Jerusalem yesterday.
The Israelis are just supposed to sit back and take it?
I don't believe in such "tolerance".
Meanwhile a Palestinian opened fire on a group of jews killing 3 apparently. Some ceasefire ya got going there middle east.
Delivering a white flag. Bebe stay strong🙏
So now Hamas can buy time to reorganize by surrendering dead hostages? Big mistake by Israel. Hamas should be told if Israel resumes military action, it’s going to be more intense and will not stop until all of the hostages are released. Given the current cease fire, it’s going to be a hard sell.
More dead Israelis on tap.
They should drop Blinky off at a bus stop.
Exactly! Netanyahu should tell the us “no more! THis is our war, not yours- kindly stay out of it and let the big boys do what needs to be done!”
Make every effort to attack and free the hostages without any idiotic “agreements” which only lead tO more and more hostages down tHe road, and make it perfectly and absolutely known that when terrorists take more hostages, it will be the worst mistake they ever made!
Netanyahu had told them that, but backed off- we will see if he reinstaes it in no uncertain terms!
Yes, that's what the "International Community" wants.
He's the "Neighborhood Bully".
Obama clearly runs this govt of ours to this day. Blinken is the punk of all punks. We need to tell our elected types to cut the civil service budget and their bennies specifically.
Interesting, Putin wasn’t worried about the 2 Russian hostages.
My very first thought. Obama/Biden are squeezing Israel. They know they have a huge problem with the Hamas Democrats and this is all about the Deep State Democrats trying to slowly but surely get Israel to back off and ultimately stand down.
How many Hamas did the Israelis have to let go to get these
Not the best of deals.
Either Hamas cannot or will not deliver the hostages.
Time to go back to work.
Blinken is a ‘moser’ and a ‘rodef’ and should be treated as such by every Jew.
The Israelis should chip every terrorist prisoner they release, like any other dog. Then shoot them when they are caught attacking Israel again, as they surely will.
