Man, Hillary looks like hell..even more so than usual. Either the US gov't are paying more attention to this than are letting on or she's on day 4 of a meth binge.

I'm hoping the ceasefire holds but I don't see it happening. Some jackass is gonna go bomb a bus or something as revenge for his dead brother's wife and it'll start all over again.

Why? Because neither side is interested in true, lasting peace.

The agreement that was reached in Cairo reportedly requires Israel to end “incursions and assassinations” but it does not go beyond that to address longer-term humanitarian, economic, and political problems.

Palestinians had hoped that a ceasefire would be followed by an easing or lifting of the blockade of Gaza, which has been in force for the last five years. The territory is controlled from the sea and air by Israel. It also controls all land borders except the southern strip near Rafah which marks Gaza’s border with Egypt.

If confirmed, failure to address that question will certainly take the shine off the achievement.

Nor was it clear either whether Egypt had agreed privately to do anything to control the flow of weapons via the network of tunnels from its territory into Gaza. Israel has been insisting that it wants to see action from Egypt and the wider international community to curb the flow of arms from Libya and Sudan via Egypt.

hope their blocking of arms and weapons doesn't mean they are going after Iran since they stated they are supporting gaza financially and militarily.

Hope the cease fire holds, I have my doubts tho

So they have to have a deadline? Why? A truce is a truce You either accept it or you don't. If they are continuing to fire back and forth between each other, then as far as I am concerned, neither side is interested in any truce.

I noticed that Anderson Cooper will be leaving Gaza today per his post on Twitter: @AndersonCooper or @AC360. I wonder what other news personalities will be leaving Gaza today? Is it a coincidence? Or does it have something to do with what will happen if this ceasefire fails?

That's just not how it works in the real world though. Both sides will want to land as many punches as possible before the bell rings.

Hilary may have just been what was needed to stop the slaughter.
She spooked them,on both sides behind the scenes,into stopping the attacks with threats of removing US finance.
I bet Morsi was freaked out be her,no head covering and a kick ass attitude-with threats of money and power behind the attitude.

Lets hope the bombs stop when the cease fire takes effect in 52 mins time,according to sky news UK.
