About That Cease-Fire

I love listening to France 24 and BBC. They are both so pro-Palestinian that it hurts for them to include facts that the entire blogosphere knows. You can almost see Annette Young wincing at the bad-for-Palestinian facts.

For example:

France 24: "Twenty Palestinian men have been killed, as well as a child." No mention that the twenty Palestinian men were Hamas terrorists engaged in firing weapons into Israel. They leave out that pertinent fact so that it sounds like 20 guys on their way home from work got offed.

BBC: Mentions as an afterthought to its portrayal of Palestinians being killed that, oh, by the way, this Israeli response was in retaliation for a barrage of missile and rocket attacks on Israel's civilians -- while playing video of the school bus hit by a Hamas anti-tank projectile, and totally omitting the fact that the kid on the bus is at death's door.

Hamas has been talking since April 8th about a cease-fire. Not unsurprisingly, the France 24 correspondent in the field was down south, and told Anettele that Israelis thought any cease-fire was probably pretty fragile, since during his interview he could see a Grad missile launched towards Ashkelon, a major Israeli city.

Hamas is trying their past tactics: fire missiles, look like "resistance fighters;" do as much damage to Israel as possible, and then shout "Cease-fire!" before the our jets get off the tarmac.

Not buying, guys.

Targeting our school bus took us to a whole new level...which I'm sure you noticed as we are now bombing YOU instead of tunnels.

In the interests of showing Hamas's true intentions regarding the mythical cease-fire, I give you today's Qassam Count:

3:19pm: A Qassam rocket was fired from the northern Gaza Strip and exploded in the southern Ashkelon.

2:37pm: Two mortar shells fired from northern Gaza landed in the Eshkol Region.

1:21pm: A Qassam rocket fired from northern Gaza Strip landed in the Eshkol Region.

12:53pm: Two rockets fired from northen Gaza landed in southern Israel.

10:21am: Qassam rocket was fired from the northern Gaza Strip and exploded in the southern Ashkelon, Israel.

6:52am: 3 mortar shells fired from the Gaza Strip hit western Negev in Israel.

WHAT cease-fire?
