Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said the seven-week conflict in Gaza ended in "victory".


I wouldn't call this a victory & neither do the polls from more than half of Israeli's asked!...
Although the polls do say they still feel Mr.Netanyahu is the best choice for PM!


The Palestinian Islamist Hamas movement was "hit hard and got none of its demands," Mr Netanyahu said.


This despite the fact that...

On Wednesday, the UN's World Food Programme said one of its convoys had entered Gaza for the first time since 2007, carrying enough food to feed around 150,000 people for five days.

Fishing boats also ventured out to sea as restrictions were eased.


So some demands were met, of course Mr.Netanyahu isn't someone I'd trust to speak honest words...


UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon welcomed the end of hostilities, but warned that a brighter future for civilians who have been affected depends on a sustainable truce.

"After 50 days of profound human suffering and devastating physical destruction, any violations of the ceasefire would be utterly irresponsible," he said.


Hopefully the UN will uphold this statement, they've ignored their own expectations & resolutions for years on this subject...

The threats of desimation occurred little after the ceasefire took place with this remark...

In a televised news conference, Mr Netanyahu said Hamas had been "hit hard" and threatened an even tougher response should there be so much as a "sprinkle" of rocket fire from Gaza.

He added that Israel "didn't agree to accept any of Hamas' demands".


But...


The ceasefire deal calls for the relaxing of Israeli and Egyptian border controls to allow humanitarian supplies and construction materials into Gaza, and the widening of the territory's fishing zone.





So now we wait, we pray, & we hope for the sake of the children that this ceasefire succeeds!!!


I see this thread either being ignored or another all out back and forth, either way I thought it's should be shared!


Bless You ATS!

Yeah, we will see what sort of a victory they had when more rockets are flying across the border.

That's what I was thinking my friend!

All those who died would say differently, I'm guessing!

The "mission accomplished" crowd, what a lark.

Victoriously pounding rubble to smaller bits.

Like GW Bush landing on that aircraft carrier and now an aircraft carrier (bearing his name) is re re pounding the rubble pile in Iraq.

Of course it was a victory , over 2 thousand Palestinians killed of which 500 were children who won't grow up to be a perceived threat to Israel , massive infrastructure destruction and no sanction from the international community.
Job done.

Both sides always declare victory in these battles and Hamas has declared it too.

The truth is, nothing has changed. The demands that Hamas claims were met in the ceasefire were all the same privileges they had before the war, but were temporarily shut down due to the fighting. Nothing gained and many Palestinian lives lost, but Hamas still considers it a victory because they didn't get all of their weapons taken away from them and many died as martyrs, which in their minds is a win/win.

Does this mean Israel is going to avoid taking responsibility for war crimes? I don't believe Israel agreed to lift any blockades unless they were forced to.

Yeah I know it's a shame.

Hamas are all about Aid, not so much about innocent Palestinians...
Which is a shame as well because they do a better job at hitting military targets than the IDF!

Hopefully they put their peoples needs before their own this time around!

Of course it does...
If anyone truly believes that Israeli leaders will be charged with War Crimes they need to seriously evaluate the trust they put into the UN & other governments worldwide!

Both sides have claimed victory, yet neither have achieved anything but disaster.

There is no victory here, and there never will be until both sides reconcile. That will only happen when Israel halts its illegal occupation, as it is the underlying and driving force of conflict between Israel and Palestinian resistance groups.

Me? I shake my head at the victorious assertions. I shake my head at the propaganda. I shake my head at all the needless destruction and deaths. Let us hope that a peaceful solution is reached with haste.

There is no such thing as "reconciliation" when it comes to Hamas. Their motto is "resistance", that's why they consider it a victory. Illegal occupation in Jerusalem is just their excuse for now, but truth be known, "resistance" will continue until they've taken over the entire land. That is their goal. As long as they keep fighting for it, win or lose, they think they're winning in Allah's eyes. Don't expect to ever see peace until the extremists are taken out, which will be....never!

The damage done to zionazis may not be obvious now but like a slow growing case if terminal cancer, Netanyahu is done.

He's shown his own people and the world that he is a savage. As more people bring this into the collective conscious, Netanyahu's tantrums and pys-ops will make him ineffectual.
