  1. only a matter of time and we’ll be back to score one. Once the crossings are open it’ll be a good opportunity to continues smuggling and Morsi
    will look the other way and maybe help them rearm.
    There should be UN observers to see that a truce
    holds. We just gave them more time to rearm

  2. Why is it that Israel should stop… #1, and Hamas should stop… #2, the animals should be written first, and then if they stop Israel will stop because there will be no need to defend itself, even though more Hamas leaders burning in Gehinnom the better, if it isn’t followed by more missiles into Israel.
