US urges Hamas to cease rocket attacks on Israel


news.yahoo.com

CRAWFORD, Texas – The U.S. on Saturday blamed the militant group Hamas for breaking a cease-fire and attacking Israel, which retaliated with strikes of its own during what became the single bloodiest day of fighting in years.

The White House called for the cease-fire to be restored, yet there were few indications that the violence, which has left more than 200 people dead and nearly another 400 wounded, was waning. Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak warned that the operation in Gaza would widen if necessary.

It was "completely unacceptable" for Hamas, which controls Gaza, to launch attacks on Israel after a truce lasting several months, said Gordon Johndroe, a spokesman for the National Security Council.

Well I would have thought that this sort of diplomacy would have come sooner, I am glad that at least some sort of U.S peacekeeping is being attempted, What kind of influence do you think it will have? does it even matter at this point? we all know the rammifications of this "powder keg" igniting so hopefully we'see some positive results.

whatever the reasons being, My heart goes out to all of the lives lost as well as the displaced families who have to relocate into refugee camps and live in squalor.Loss of life is loss of life period. god bless all of those people.I only hope that the situation does not get to a point where the U.S govt will put troops on the ground to aid Israel.

Um....its a little late now. No one should be surprised by this. Israel ahs been saying for DAYS and WEEKS that if the rocket attacks continued then they would do something about it. Well now they are.

Oh by all means I'm not saying that Israel should not protect her people,but even the Arab community is condemming the air strike, I'm glad that the bush administration is publicly asking for Hamas to discontinue violating the cease fire.
