December 28, 2008 UK and Vatican Call for Cease Fire in Gaza
by Bill Levinson
The United Kingdom has called for an immediate halt to violence in Gaza, while the Pope called upon all sides to end the violence.
We do not recall either Britain or the Vatican speaking up when Hamas was pouring rockets and mortar shells into Israel. We therefore do not see why Israel should even listen to anything that either entity has to say now that Hamas is reaping what it has sown.

That was what it took to stop the violence in the Pacific theater in 1945.
The calls for a cessation of the violence only come when Israel is winning. Why is that?
Lets send a few hundred rockets every day onto the heads of the Vatican and London (what a short memory THEY have).
Then lets ask them their opinion again.
Israel shouldn’t stop til the job is done. Don’t succume to pressure from these left wing goons. If they love Gaza so much, they should move there
Ceasefire? Sure, right after the mission is complete.
Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Angelo Sodano said Pope Benedict and his aides were very worried that the developments in the Middle East risked degenerating into "a conflict with international repercussions."
"In particular, the Holy See deplores right now the attack on Lebanon, a free and sovereign nation, and assures its closeness to these people who already have suffered so much to defend their independence," he told Vatican Radio.

The Pope and Limystan need to butt out on this one.
The sissies of the world need to drink a nice, tall glass of STFU! I leave the Vatican out, I expect them to call for peace, and it doesn’t bother me, but I would also ignore that call, because the time has come to wipe these cowardly rats the **** out for good!
Vicar of Christ? Not!
And how many such calls were being made when Hamas was launching its rockets?
Once this mission is complete and the palis start with their missiles again, the additional Israeli policy should = one mile into Gaza and flattening that area. For each Pali missile fired, one additional mile into Gaza until the Palis are pushed out to sea. Let them take life boats to London and Rome for “safety”.
I’ve come up with a simple plan. If Israel has finally had enough of the Gazans, it should push them into Egypt. But then it should pay reparations to each man, woman and child of a total amount of $10B.
For the 1.5 million Gazans, this works out to $6,600 each. The average annual pay of an Egyptian is $1,300.
Then the US can double the Israel contribution, and Palestinians will be a wealthy class within Egypt.
The GDP of Israel is $170B. So $10B would be a bargain to be done with the Gazans for good.
And for the icing on the cake, the Israelis might even encourage the Israeli Arabs to move to Gaza from Israel proper, as a much more peaceful and prosperous people.
This former Catholic says enough!!
There are some easy guesses.
Why are you pinging me?
Nobody listens and most are quietly rooting for there side to win, but all will walk around with dour expressions and express regrets, ect. Welcome to strange world of Alice in Wonderland.
I wondered the same thing.
Not your fight, stay the hell out!
Perhaps the British are just afraid of pissing off the huge “British” muslim population.?????????
The calls for cessation of “violence” also come whenever the Israelis take any step whatever to defend themselves on any front.
And the call is always against Israel, never against those who openly and continuously attack them.
Oddly enough, Israel generally seems to react to those types of sick, irrational calls to martyrdom, in illogical ways.
Why is that?
I don't know the answer. It's like the left in this country. It's our fault, don't you know. But I don't see where we disagree. I think we are on the same page.
UK: wrong,wrong,wrong,wrong,,,,wrong,wrong,wrong,wrong,,,you’re WRONG,you’re WRONG, you’re WRONG. (Dr.Perry Cox’s version of how to inform someone they are mistaken.)
Vatican: repeat the same.
Hi! We’re liberals from 1000 miles away who aren’t living in fear of our neighbors.
Now do what we say. :)
I don’t care if it’s the U.S., the U.K., or the Vatican that demands a ceasefire, Israel has my blessing to continue and in fact escalate it’s activity until the rockets stop raining in on it. You’d have to be a witting/unwitting disciple of Satan to urge otherwise. All evil needs to flourish is for good men to remain silent, standing by doing nothing as it conquers all. Go for it Israel. You’ll have a green light from here until some assholes are either dead or convinced they can no longer attack you with impunity.
If someone was to fire a rocket at another country from the US the US would arrest the person fast.
Why should it be any different for the Muslims?
