With diplomats from Middle Eastern states and several outside powers scrambling to stem the spiraling Israeli-Palestinian crisis on Monday, President Obama called for a cease-fire and cited serious concerns about the rising toll of dead on both sides.
The Obama administration also dispatched to the region Secretary of State John F. Kerry, who arrived in Egypt late Monday to try to mediate calm between Israel and the Palestinian militant group Hamas.
But the violence continued to surge Monday night, with the top Hamas leader in the Gaza Strip signaling that the Islamist group, whose charter calls killing every Jew a religious duty, will not agree to an unconditional cease-fire with Israel. Meanwhile, Israels defense minister pledged Monday to keep fighting as long as necessary.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Was announced today we are sending 47 million to Gaza to support ‘humanitarian aid’. ... in other words, those trying to bomb Israel.
The US should be “scrambling” to arrest, take to trial and imprison the anti-American/anti-Freedom criminal “president” we currently suffer under. How misguided.
Right. And neither the Israelis nor the Egyptians want him there.
A national embarrassment, he is. Along with his boss.
The paleosimians have openly and repeatedly declared genocide against US and Israel.
Either give them what they want, or exterminate the vermin.
Obama is Muslim Brotherhood. Kerry is a supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood. Egypt has sentenced to death quite a few Muslim Brotherhood leaders. Nearly 1000! I wonder what kind of reception Kerry is going to get? I hope it goes viral on YOUTUBE.
“John Kerry dispatched to Egypt
Right. And neither the Israelis nor the Egyptians want him there.”
“I won” Obama doesn’t want him around either, so the Israeli’s, and the Egyptians get him.
Needs to be repeated over and over until a few American idiots get it.
I guess that explains Kerry's long face.
Scrambles to send money and arms to Hamas.
All that money we just handed to them should buy enough ammo to do a great deal of escalating.
If we get lucky they may keep him there. What a disgrace!
let me guess...
we’re going to resupply hamas and start providing more intel on Israeli positions

The White House chef scrambles eggs. Doubt the administration knows how to scramble, at least effectively.
Kerry crashed the party...... Israel said he wasn’t invited
