Tks. Horrible either way but if it had been an IDF member I think a pretty huge response would have been coming and that would not be good for anyone.

Np. And sorry for my reaction. You were really leveled when you replied. Guess I've seen too much of war to last me a life time... I dont react to well at 80 or 90% of the ppl that are watching the feed just to feed their own blood lust. Lucky for them they never have, and hopefully they will never have to witness this crap first hand.

And yes, if it was an "official" IDF guy it would have been hell... the opportunity is still open for that kind of show if Israel does invade.

By posting this, I'm not validating it. Just providing updates.


Islamic Jihad is announcing that a ceasefire with Israel will go into effect in three hours, Channel 2′s veteran Arab affairs analyst Ehud Ya’ari reports. There is no other confirmation yet.


Times of Isreal - 16:47 update

Now my questions are, how many groups need to agree to a ceasefire? And are they all on the same page? Only time will answer those I guess.

From BBC feed


IDF evacuation warnings suggest either limited incursion or a heavy bombardment of the area in #Gaza maybe imminent ahead of ceasefire



5 Israel Defence Forces (IDF) soldiers wounded by rocket fired from #Gaza into Israel,

That's the problem.

It has happened in the past. One group goes to the table and negotiates, and another group keeps fighting or carrying on with bomb attacks.

Some do it just for the attacks, others just do it to compromise the negotiations of the first group, making a dent in their credibility and then trying to take their place as representatives of the Palestinians.

This whole situation is like putting all the World's problems in one place.

Ok it seems another attack from sky, not ground invasion.

The sun is going down over there. If some kind of cemented peace deal is NOT agreed on- I have a feeling. Just a gut feeling tonight is gonna be ugly. Very ugly. :0(

I'm hoping it wont be. Enough is enough.

All reports suggest there is still - at least - a gap of 24hours before any ground invasion.

IDF has stated everything is ready, though.

Another cease fire update:


Egyptian sources to Haaretz: Ceasefire signing to take place in Cairo on Wednesday, to be participated by UN chief Ban Ki-moon (Jack Khoury)


www.haaretz.com - 5:05pm update

(Really? Wait til tomorrow so they can continue to lob bombs back-in-forth and amp up the hate on both sides. Makes NO sense, if they have an agreement just declare it and don't wait for others to show up for the grand spectacle!!)

Here's a video. It is GRAPHIC at some points.
It shows not all of Israel is on board with this violence.

On the one hand, I just can't see Israel agreeing to a cease-fire. What would be the point? Air strikes alone aren't enough to stop Hamas (another long range rocket just left Gaza heading for Tel Aviv or Jerusalem...) and if they stop now then we'll just be back in the same boat again before long.

But.....Bibi's popularity is currently at an all-time high due to how he's handling this situation so far. However, a ground invasion is only favored by a small amount of Israeli's. Lot's of dead IDF and international condemnation is not what he wants just before an election. We've seen massive damage dealt out by Israel over the past few days (including the deaths of some key terrorist figures) and only 3 Israeli deaths. I think he might show restraint (for now) and quit this op while he's ahead in the polls.

It's a tough one to call.
