How can Israel call a ceasefire without withdrawing their troops?
They,ve said they will continue to defend themselves against attacks. Hamas will continue fighting them if they stay in Gaza. And I'm sure they know this.

I agree with most here that this is just a PR stunt.
The boarders will still be closed and aid will still not get to where it is meant to go, Israeli troops can kick the heads of who they want just to get a response and say I was fired upon first.
still no media on the ground to watch the truce, so who knows what is happening.

Iran would never wage conventional warfare against israel,they may try to acquire nukes so they dont have to,but they have bigger problems in their own country,low unemployment rates in the younger generation etc without going to war.And why do many mostly americans keep using the word *loose* instead of *lose* i cant count how many times ive seen it on here...Off topic sorry.
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said on Saturday that Israel's offensive in the Gaza Strip had achieved all its objectives.
