Hamas resumes shelling after agreeing to new 24-hour ceasefire
Russia Today ^ | 7-27-2014 | RT

Posted on 07/27/2014 4:33:25 PM PDT by tcrlaf

Fighting briefly subsided in Gaza on Sunday after Hamas agreed to a 24-hour humanitarian truce in the Strip. Israel's PM Benjamin Netanyahu, however, slammed the group for failing to accept its own ceasefire and continuing to fire.

"In response to UN intervention and considering the situation of our people and the occasion of Eid, it has been agreed among resistance factions to endorse a 24-hour humanitarian calm, starting from 2 pm on Sunday," Sami Abu Zuhri, Hamas spokesman said in a statement.

Eid al-Fitr, also called Feast of Breaking the Fast, is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of Ramadan. It starts on Tuesday.

In the meantime, Israel rejected the proposal by the United nations and Hamas to humanitarian ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, the country's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told CNN.

"Hamas doesn't even accept its own ceasefire, it's continuing to fire at us as we speak," he said, adding that Israel "will take what ever action is necessary to protect our people."

The thing to notice in this article isn't so much WHAT is being said, rather HOW it is being said.

Coming from Russian Media, this a rather strongly supportive article of Israel's operation in Gaza.

As I have noted before, Official Russia, other than a few toned-down declarations at the beginning, has been stunningly quiet about what is happening in Gaza this time around, compared to the past, even at the UN.

Round and round it goes. Where/when it will stop only God knows because this is a religious war, not a political war.

Enough of this back and forth bullshit that’s been going on for years. Same old, same old. Kerry is an idiot, as were all the SOSs that came before him. Politicians think they are so damn smart. But they will never solve this.

IMHO, Israel should level Gaza. Completely!

Russia knows Islam far longer, better, and full gory detail, than America does. Beslan was an evil act even worse than the plane crashes, and was done to Russian middle school students and their teacher, etc. by Muslims.

Given an opportunity, Putin might happily nuke all Muslims in Russia.

The Chinese have reasons to hate Muslims going all the way back to the Hordes. Those proto Muslims/Muslims are why the Great Wall was built.

Hopefully, Putin, the Chinese, and Israel can come to some agreement and nuke all Muslims into oblivion.

America, OUR America, led by Obama, seems to now be on the side of Hamas, and all of the other Mideast head-chopping radicals.

Russia is taking the other side.

What the hell has happened?

And you expected them abide by any cease-fire; any law except one that says destroy the Jews?

Surah 9:5 - Kill non-Muslims wherever you find them. Ambush, seize, and capture them. If they convert to Islam and pray and contribute to the cause of Islam, let them go.

The problem is, we are too politically correct to be able to defend ourselves against radical Islam. And it doesn’t help that the WH policy is sympathetic to radical Islam. Radical Islam doesn’t have to attack us, they already conquered the US through Obama

What the ‘media’ refused to report was that the victims were sodomized before they were murdered.

Amen.

I have recently added to my daily prayers a plea for Jesus to return soon. That may be the only way out.

Russia is taking the other side.

The Russkies and the Chicoms recently voted against the U.S. to "open an inquiry" to investigate Israel for war crimes. As for RT's news articles, looking at the search engine, most of them don't appear to be that friendly to Israel, though maybe they're just trying to be "balanced." Other sections of Russian state controlled media are not restrained though:

"The "most moral army in the world" from "the only democracy in the Middle East" has attacked hospitals, a home for the disabled, a geriatric hospice, demolished five mosques, razed entire neighbourhoods, erased entire families - the youngest - so far - just three days old if you do not count the unborn, as in the case of twenty nine year old Samar Al Hallaq (1) killed with her two sons, aged four and five, other members of her family and carrying her third child. Her husband was critically injured."

He's giving billions of dollars to the Chechens and has built himself his own personal Islamic empire under his buddy Kadyrov, who, on top of keeping a sex dungeon with both male and female slaves, makes girls where burkhas. He's also helping Iran with their nuclear program.

The US media would be making it sound like Israel broke the cease-fire... actually they did do that I think

Given the ISIS demand that all females in Mosul between 11 and 45 undergo female genital mutilation, the sleeping American Giant, which Admiral Isuruko Yamato feared awakening, may awake to the American female screaming “Nuke ‘Em all, the Sunni, the Shia, and all, Nuke ‘Em All”

Clit Cutters are not going to be acceptable to Americans.

I would hope so. But traditionally in the US liberal women tend to follow the party line and political correctness and repeat often that Islam is a religion of peace, and this group is a radical group that resembles Christianity. (I know crazy, huh?) they are blind to the fact that all of Islam believes this

Excellent.

If that cartoon was set in a school surrounded by civilians and showed dead kids afterword with a quote saying “It’s Israel’s fault these kids are dead” that’d be pretty accurate too.

Feminists don’t give a crap about women in Iraq or anywhere else.

I have seen no pushback yet. Liberals seem to give Muslims a pass up to and including killing Christians. Hey, it is part of their religion and we can’t interfere with that. /s
