victory? man, these people are deluded. And hate to sound negative, but am pretty sure this "truce" will not hold from these same deluded people.
Give up the West Bank...give up Gaza & there will be peace. Yeah right. I guess it takes two to make a real, lasting peace.
Israel is not asking anyone to give up anything. They were attacked by five Arab nations at once and when the dust cleared they owned whole Sinai, Golan Heights plus the area around the West Bank.
They belong in the region just as much if not more than the Palestinians, after all Jews being there and in Arabia is mentioned in the Quran and Mohamed built the religion by killing Jews in Medina. Historical accuracy is a requisite in understanding the whole mess. Taking sides puts everyone on the side of war.
Apparently my comment about Hamas not honoring the ceasefire was deleted because there was a link. Look into the facts. Rockets fired by Hamas after cease fire so it was not even honored on their end.
"budgrant00 - Israel is not asking anyone to give up anything.". You are right. They just take Palestinian lands and home. Why bother asking when end times theology justifies seizing other peoples lands.
Hamas claims victory? Really? You provoke Israel with rocket attacks, Israel responds strongly and heavily damages Hamas including killing the leader of their military wing, and then a cease fire is declared. Someone please tell me how Hamas can claim any kind of a victory from this. They gained nothing significant and seemed to have lost alot. There's nothing more dangerous than a deluded terrorist.
