The fact you take pride and joy from people's suffering tells me so much about you. Maybe if you took your head out of your ass you'd notice the poor Gazans didn't even have an underground to go to, nobody gives about their safety and their would be saviors put them in harms way as a policy.
Yours is a culture of hate and sufferring, you become ecstatic over blood spelt and misery spread. If I didn't know better from the history of my people's suffering by the Germans, I'd say you weren't fit to be called humans. Sadly you are human, a perfect example of the depths of the Abyss the human spul is capable of going down.
I'll say it again, you see "keeping the majority of your people underground for days" as an achievement, I see it as a failure of their human soul. As a moral bankruptcy.
When Gazans suffer I take no pride or joy, all we ever asked for is a place under the sun, where the wolf lies down with the lamb, i'll give you free reign in deciding who is which.
Awww you're such a sweetheart. You really care that much about Gazans?*wipes tears*
And here I am thinking you're just another lying Zionist war criminal who goes on indiscriminate killing rampages and then claims he cares about civilians.

BTW, Eran,I don't take pride in people's suffering. But unfortunately for both of us, Palestinians don't have advanced weaponry. You see, Hamas was aiming at military targets the whole time, but those rockets can swerve sometimes and land on civilian areas.

I'll admit that other then owing them what they are due as human beings, I couldn't care less about the Gazans, they hate me and they support those who try to kill me. It doesn't mean I want them to suffer though, I'm not that kind of person, I'm nothing like you.

<quoted text> I wonder why Israel would agree to such a thing. pledging to stop assassination that is. It might have something to do with Hamas's dwindling capabilities, or Hamas being a joke.
To answer your question, I don't really know. All I know is there's an increasing sense of solidarity with Hamas in the WB. For the first time in years people are actually allowed to raise Hamas flags and shout pro-Hamas slogans in demonstration. Meanwhile no one hears about Abbas or his flock.
Hey, I see you have a bunch of emblems now. Trolling hard?
Hardly trolling...respect my authoritah!(It's just a game)

As much as I'd love to go back to square one and call your guys terrorists while bombing them into concrete aggregate, I'll instead give you a rare attaboy...Palestinian unity is my personal prerequisite for any kind of meaningful discussion with Israel. You can't make peace with your outside enemies until your inner ones are calmed. If the truce holds, and if Hamas and Fatah can somehow manage to coexist, this might be the year for celebration, we shall see.

On the other hand, what are the chances of that really happening? That this is not just a rerun as the Palestinian's situation circles the bowl? A lot still has to happen for this cease fire to reach maturity.

AND it was you who declared it after agreeing to Hamas's terms. Sucker.
You still think Israel was successful in 2008? After all, now Hamas can hit Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and beyond. Next time they'll reach Haifa, Yafa, the Jalil mountains. Heck, maybe they'll send a couple rockets to Golan heights.
War after war, failure after failure, and every time Palestinians come out stronger. NatenYAHOO still planning on destroying Hamas?
Doubt he'll have another chance.
Of Course.....of course. Another stunning arab "victory". Like 1967. And like when Saddam defeated the Americans in 1991. Cling to your dreams.....It's all you have.

I see the level of stupidity has increased in my absence (by default). You see, Faith, the US does not occupy parts of Mexico (except for California maybe?). So Mexicans shooting rockets at Arizona would not be justified. Palestinians, on the other hand, are under Zionist occupation. This grants them the universal right of resistance. You might call it terrorism due to a certain set of prejudices you have against the wonderful people of Palestine, but that won't change the fact that Palestinians are still fighting to this day because they are occupied.
There is no "occupation". The so-called "palestinians" are a contrived people. They are Egyptians, Iraqis, Saudis, Jordanians.

Muslims do not hate Jews because of Israel. They hate Israel because it is a Jewish country. Their constant squalling about "zionism" and the "plight" of the "palestinians" are smoke and mirror issues designed to lend legitimacy to the burning hatred of Jews that is endemic to Islam. If the muslims were so concerned about the "palestinians"....Th ey would be helping them. The fact is that aside from Israel itself, the USA gives more aid to West Bank/Gaza than any other nation.

How does it feel to get sh*t on by a joke?
Yes....Hamas showed them! I saw a news clip of the arabs celebrating the cease fire in the usual muslim fashion....They were dancing around firing their guns into the air and chanting "D'eath to America". That goes a long way in selling their "cause" to Americans. The USA, Canada, ANZAC, EU and pretty much any nation that is rational designates Hamas as a terrorist organization. That's what they are....terrorists and cowards.
