Palestinian militants link arms in unity during a gathering in 2007 in the Gaza Strip.

Hamas has ordered militant groups in Gaza to stop firing rockets into Israel, which could not only avoid another bloody invasion but signal progress toward a deal to release a captured Israeli soldier.

The Guardian:

Hamas has won an agreement from other militant groups in Gaza to halt rocket fire into Israel for the first time in almost a year, a move that could signal progress on a deal to release a captured Israeli soldier.

The agreement, announced late yesterday, appears to be an attempt by the Palestinian Islamist movement to prevent another descent into conflict at a time when reconstruction has barely begun almost 12 months after the devastating conflict with Israel.

It also suggests more progress in secretly mediated talks to release Gilad Shalit, the soldier captured more than three years ago, in exchange for the return of hundreds of Palestinian prisoners.

I would like to invite you to “enjoy” watching the “humanity” of those who are just “a little bit fascists”

BTW, those filmed are not the leaders, nor the politicians, nor the army, just the “normal” beings

People who call for equal rights for those savages, robbers, supremacists and murderers, I would say, you are welcome to take them as YOUR neighbours, you are welcome to even share your home with them, but please, do not force them upon us

As far as am concerned, they have crossed every red line, they have gone beyond the point of return, those who think that they can help them find their humanity…...... good luck to you

No room in my heart for such evil
