Cease-fire in Gaza

How long will the international community hold Israel from respoding to rocket attacks as the newest cease-fire took hold? Until Israel decides to do something I'd say. There won't be any outcrys or protests in the wider world against the palestinian attacks that directly violate the cease-fire that just started. There won't be any editorials in the NYT or WaPo decrying violence or praising Israels restraint. They will simply remind Israel that there is a cease-fire until Israel decides to fight back. Then the editorials and 'news' reports will come speaking out against Israeli 'aggression'.

This pattern is repeated with every cease-fire or treaty that Israel signs. It is a never-ending cycle that shows that a country should and will defend itself and should have the right even in the international community.

Despite Truce, Palestinian Attacks Go On

Associated Press Writer

JERUSALEM (AP) -- Israeli troops withdrew from the Gaza Strip as an unexpected truce took hold Sunday, but two major Palestinian militant groups, saying they had no intention of stopping their attacks, fired volleys of homemade rockets into Israel.

The rocket attacks by Hamas and Islamic Jihad tempered hopes for a lasting cease-fire, which was meant to end five months of deadly clashes. The rockets landed in open fields and caused no injuries.(link)
