ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN CEASEFIRE: Al-Jazeera

The title of an Al-Jazeera article released on November 21, 2012 is “CALM returns as Gaza-Israel ceasefire HOLDS?” (Web-site/URL: http://www.aljazeera.com/news/middleeast/2012/11/201211221042988934.html).

“As life in Gaza BEGAN TO show signs that it was returning to normal, Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak warned that Israel may resume its attacks (at) ANY TIME IF a truce that ended a week of bloodshed fails to hold“. This is A VERY BIG “if”.

“he (i.e. Barak) told public radio on Thursday (November 22, 2012)” “The ceasefire can last nine days, nine weeks or more, but if it DOES NOT hold, (then) WE WILL KNOW WHAT TO DO and then of course we shall consider the possibility of RESUMING our (military) activity in case of shooting or PROVOCATION (?)” WHO is “provoking” WHOM? This is the latest case of “We think they made us mad; they think we made them mad and here we go” (Web-site/URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).

“Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh held a press briefing on Thursday (November 22, 2012) and thanked Egypt and “believerMohamed Morsi for his country’s efforts in securing the ceasefire, saying Gaza’s victory is clear and the moment for Egypt and the region HAD ARRIVED“, whatever that means. “I thank our Egyptian BROTHERS(?) and Egyptian intelligence for their tireless efforts to reach the ceasefire. WE ARE SATISFIED with the ceasefire agreement as a basis for stopping aggression against Gaza”Well there has also been “aggression against” ISRAELThis is another case of “We think they made us mad; they think we made them mad and here we go” (Web-site/URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI). Also “brothers” is a/the latest CIRCUS/FREAK SHOW because these “brothers” are only “brothers” WHEN THEY AGREE/FOR THE TIME BEINGAs soon as they disagree on anything significantit will be back to both sides TRYING TO TAKE EACH OTHER’S HEADS OFF.

“Late on Wednesday night (November 21, 2012), the ruling Hamas government announced that Thursday (November 22, 2012) would be a public holiday” just like in THE UNITED STATES of course (Thanksgiving). In a statement, Hamas said: “The Palestinian government announces that Thursday, November 22 (2012) is a national holiday of VICTORY and an official holiday“. “victory” for HAMAS? This is yet another INTERPRETATION (Web-site/URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).

Finally, “Al Jazeera‘s Hoda Abdel-Hamid, reporting from Ashkelon in Israel, said that while Israel was hailing the ceasefire a victory, most people she had spoken to in the area WERE NOT happy about the truce with Hamas” obviouslyTHIS IS EXPECTED (Web-site/URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).

“She said that there were demonstrations on Wednesday in Sderot and Beer Sheva and that people were saying that Benjamin Netanyahu had a choice between war and selling out and that he chose SELLING OUT” which, of course, = BETRAYAL and of course, Israelis ARE NOT happy about this. “To the question of whether they would vote for Netanyahu again, most of the answers were a straight NO” again obviously. “There is BITTERNESS and a feeling that a victory was handed over to Hamas. Some said that Netanyahu “betrayed” them but he will still win the elections because THERE IS NO ONE ELSESo IT’S NOT AS IF ISRAELIS HAVE AN ALTERNATIVE.

The question, again of course is: HOW LONG WILL THIS “calm” and “ceasefire” LAST? If we want an answer to this question, all we have to do is look at THE VERY FIRST sentence in this article:  “As life in Gaza BEGAN TO show signs that it was returning to normal, Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak warned that Israel may resume its attacks (at) ANY TIME if a truce that ended a week of bloodshed fails to holdThis peace is EXTREMELY fragile and it’s clear that ISRAEL is still THE AGGRESSOR. So the answer to the question WILL THIS “calm” HOLD, againis most likely NO.
