MUSCAT, Dec 30 (Reuters) - Gulf Arab heads of state were divided at a summit in Oman on Tuesday over how to address the conflict between Israel and Hamas, even though they were united in calling for an end to Israeli raids on Gaza.
Qatar, one of the six U.S. allies in the Gulf Cooperation Council, has called for an Arab summit to discuss the offensive that has killed about 350 Palestinians, while regional power Saudi Arabia has said it saw little benefit in a meeting...

Very sad new year festival ahead...
To get political pressure, very needed truce, cease-fire, to save out those innocent civilians out from that massacre is gone.
Like I didnt spend Christmas this year, I wont be celebrating New Year either... Because of civilians in Gaza. Because childrens who are crying in hunger, without hope from better.
My heart is crying right now...
I hoped so much that some political effort can end this massacre, but world is so cruel, when it comes to political goals - Zionist supreme ideas, and oil rich goliarchs personal interests... People of Gaza are paying very hard price in coming days.
I just get images from those teenage girls, boys, like awful flashes in my mind, I see them crying in panic, bombs blowing around their homes...
As a soldier, I hope that those Israeli fellow soldiers, when they soon get their order to move in, will not get trigger happy... That they respect rules of engagements, and feel also this same pain from suffering civilians, not choosing killing their targets in hate, but with will to spare innocents from their sights.
That is my new year promise, and a pray - never been so unselfish before;
Please, you soldier of Israel!
Inside your mighty tanks, spare those innocents, who havent had any time in their short lifes to harm anyone... When you see someone moving, dont just shoot to kill, its possibly not your enemy, but possible equal human been, a teen, who is trying to find shelter from your mighty power.
Spare one of them for me, and for human kind...

You are just blind fool, and I will ignore your future worthless comments...
I do understand Palestinian resistance, against violent occupation, but that doesnt make me supporter of Hamas, or enemy of Israel.
There is nothing to win by killing civilians... Just more hate and continuing violence. When you brainwashed sheeps will understand that, simple rule of honour?
But maybe you are from US, hundreds of thousands civilians have just died in recent years because of your armed forces, by US Zionist government. What can I expect from Americans?
And yes, I am also against Zionism, and New World Order, which you seem to support by insulting humanism, hoping innocent civilians to suffer under indirect bombings and slaughter - But in the end, you will loose.

... You will see how the average common folk just like here in the US and around the world don't want these hostilities and just want to live in peace with each other.It is these insane leaders and these in my opinion Religious fanatics that are the root of the real problems.
