Operation Protective Edge. Israels government unanimously rejected a ceasefire offer advanced by US Secretary of State John Kerry while Hamas officials were said to still be considering the plan. West Bank violence continued to escalate, with five Palestinians reported killed in riots. With the Gaza death toll said to pass 700, Israeli military sources said several hundred Hamas gunmen had been killed. The IDF death toll is 35. IDF-Hamas fighting in Gaza remains intensive, and rockets are still being fired into Israel, but foreign airlines are returning to Ben-Gurion airport.

God bless the 35 and their families.
Perhaps Kerry should have kept his stupid comment about Israel’s “pinpoint” operation in Gaza to himself.
Perhaps asking the mother of a dead IDF American soldier “how’s your day” at the memorial service was a tad inappropriate.
But didn’t Kerry serve in Vietnam?
Lurch and Obama EPIC Fail. Unanimous rejection. Hamas is on the ropes and Lurch and Obama want to give them some time to reload the rockets. EPIC FAIL.
Net doesn't need us or want us BUT Net can blackmail us because we support part of their defense system.
Doesn’t say what was in the cease fire agreement but if Israel rejected it straight out and Hamas is thinking about it, it probably wasn’t good.
The doorknob actually said that?
Looks like Israel has finally figured out (the obvious) about Obama/Kerry
I lament the deaths of the 35 IDF soldiers.
In truth, I don’t like seeing deaths on either side, the terrorists excluded of course.
I just wish the Palestinian people would at some point have had enough of this disgusting situation to rise up and slaughter those among their own, who continually bring Israel into this type of situation it really doesn’t want either.
Hamas isn’t thinking about it.
It’s thinking, how many more rockets do we have, and how long will it take to use them up?
Seems them Jews are a might smarter than we are.
They at least have the brains and moxie to tell Kerry and obammy where to get off.
did Kerry propose that only Israel stop shooting?
I wondered why Kerry had such a long face.
Lurch seems to be 0 for 3 even with the extortion attempt by the FAA
Plus, he was humiliated in Egypt by a metal detector
so that might really be 0 for 4
Pull out the troops and drop fuel air bombsi
