Will the Gaza ceasefire hold at least through the end of the year?

Probably. No one wants to die before we find out if the Mayans were right, or full of it. Lol.

You're right about the killing it needs to stop. What you don't understand is it is not about religion or God but greed.

If your mind is open to a different perspective and some genuine history, read the article I posted below, earlier this morning.

Also, the rockets are NOT like July 4 firecrackers. They are meant to kill and do kill.

Abolitionist, yes, it's tragic when children are killed in war. Israel tries to avoid civilians. Hamas uses their own civilians as human shields and deliberately targets Israeli citizens - including children, in both cases.

Quote from the article: "The Israeli government expects the withdrawal will reduce Palestinian attacks on Israeli citizens."

This did not happen. Instead, the people of Gaza elected Hamas and the attacks increased.

Here is a 2005 Washington Post article, explaining the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza. (See link below.) Israel forced all Jewish residents of Gaza to leave and turned it over to the Palestinians. They hoped this would bring peace.

Israel will honor it.....hamas will not. Then Israel will go back to being easy on hamas and playing tit for tat instead of annihilating them.

I'm afraid neither side is tired enough of killing the other side yet. There will be no permanent progress until the radicals on both sides stop being the driving force.

I don't capitalize god the same reason I don't capitalize the tooth fairy. And you want facts? Here's 2: Isreal always goes to war before elections, and for every 5 people Isreal loses, Palestine loses 140. But hey, maybe the tooth fairy, er, i mean god supports that. Who knows?

I never said that Israel is perfect. They do, however, have God's blessing. God, by the way, should be capitalized.

Abolitionist, some of the Palestinian kids were killed by Palestinian rockets that missed and fell back into their own territory. Those weak, worthless rockets.

Nevertheless, it's still tragic when any child dies, of any nationality, for whatever reason.

I shoot off more powerful rockets on 4th of July. Stop trying to justify isreal killing innocent kids because Benjamin yahoo wants to get elected.

No, it won't stop until they've destroyed each other and their lands. It doesn't even matter who started it or whose fault it is. It's a lost cause now.

Honestly, I hope not. What has ceasefire brought us in the past? A temporary breathing period. We need to stop it once and for all, take out the Hamas. Too many lives are being lost while we cater to their every whim. Stop the bloodshed!

No one would allow and support the massacre and incarceration of a group of people, but that's what Israel is doing to Palestinians which makes groups like Hamas seem more inviting when they see their friends and families killed/incarcerated plus there was so few options

Google "crime and punishment on the Gaza Strip" for an Interesting (and sometimes disturbing) look at life in the Gaza Strip. It's short and only gives you a small window but still better than any coverage mainstream media has provided

It's a shitty place to live that's for sure. As critical as I am of the neoconservatives in the Israeli government, Hamas is pretty f'ed up bunch of people and they are not very popular even in Gaza, only reason they won election is no other real options, and people strive for governance.

There's no law and order in Gaza. Any a-hole with a launcher or mortar tube could fire a rocket or mortar shell over the border and start a war.

Hamas exists within countries the same way the KKK existed for years in the US. The Klan still exists but in a very weak state of being simply because of the actions of US citizens.

@Time, Hamas shouldn't be included in anything as they are a terror org.
When they start to respect human life over their beliefs, then they can come to the table.

Of course your reference would invalidate contracts between followers of Islam as well, unless already covered by the Big Book, pretty much rendering your ridiculous argument moot. But Christians keep all their contracts with everyone - just ask anyone who lived here before they showed up.

Book #009 Hadith #3585
What has happened to the people that they lay down conditions which are not (found) in the Book of Allah? And he who laid down a condition not found in the Book of Allah, that is not valid. even if it is laid down hundred times.

We have its attention. To understand God's reasoning is like trying to teach algebra to a goldfish. It just isn't possible. We are not Gods. No one will know Gods plan until it happens. Respect would stop a lot of wars. The truth about a religion would change billions of minds.

God gave us free will. Be it to create and follow different religions or belief systems, to harm others, or to eat apple pie over cherry. Or none at all. Would you want every choice you made made for you, to prevent any suffering?

Try reading the part of the report about why the soldier opened fire. Maybe he shouldn't have fired but the Palestinians on the other side shouldn't have been provoking and moving toward the fence inside the no-go zone either.

What difference does the quality of the rockets make? The reality is that Hamas is sworn to the destruction of Israel and will use any means necessary. Nobody would continue to allow poor quality attacks that could kill simply because the attacks are poor quality.

What kind of sense does that make?

Wars and killing. Killing and wars, all because people believe their God is the only true God.
It's insanity.

If there is a God, what will it take to get his attention and put a stop to this!
