Israel's Brutal Siege of Gaza

When will it end?

Simply Jews has a post, detailing the horrors:

Numbers speak.. Numbers matter...

Read it and weep...

Truce with Hamas

Ami Isseroff:

Israel is being bombarded by a pernicious propaganda barrage, which threatens to undermine the IDF, the state and everything we stand for, and to imperil the lives of hundreds, perhaps thousands of Israeli soldiers and civilians.

Noah Pollak:

The test of Israeli seriousness in enforcing the terms of its cease-fire with Hamas has come more quickly than expected. Here was Amos Gilad, the official who negotiated the deal for the IDF, on Wednesday:

We need a total ceasefire — all included. If tomorrow
morning one single rocket is fired, it will be a violation of the agreement.
There is no room for interpretation, and no mediating body is needed…Egypt, on
its side, is committed to preventing the smuggling activity from Gaza. It’s
simple; Egypt has a border with Gaza, through which weapons and terrorists are
smuggled.
Smuggling is a serious violation of the terms. Any such infraction
will lead to a change in Israel’s stance from the way in which it was presented
to the Egyptians.

Here is Ismail Haniyeh, Hamas’ Gaza-based chief, today after Friday prayers:

We cannot talk about stopping smuggling because it is
something beyond our ability as a government and we did not give a commitment in
this regard.
