Gaza edges closer to a cease-fire as talks continue

Even though the conflict in Gaza rages on, there is increasing discussion about how and when it will end.

Egyptian and Palestinian negotiators met again on Wednesday in Cairo and came out of their meetings with the first public statements on a proposed cease-fire. While no Israeli representatives participated, an Egyptian official said they were “working with the Israeli side.”

At a brief news conference, a Hamas spokesman said his government still has reservations about the agreement.

Another spokesman for HamasĀ told reporters he was “optimistic now because there is no other choice for us.”

Daniel Levy, the director of the Middle East task force at the New America Foundation, joins Martin Savidge to discuss the Egyptian plan for a cease-fire, the Israeli military’s position and other prospects for bringing an end to the conflict.

I have an idea
since marcel is a stupid lonely sad alien
skip his comments because everyone is against him

advice: dont read his comments, it will only stress you

Jewish ancestors = linked to Kurds, Turks & Armenians.

Palestinians from 7th Century CE = linked to Ethiopia, later Syria, Iraq, Algeria & Arabia

Palestinians never exercised full sovereignty over their land, so Israel felt the Palestinians have no rights to the land.

**1920 Palestinians riots – protests against British Rule & Zionist immigration!!!

Here you will see pix and bio’s of Palestinian (Druze) woman marrying a cousin from Syria-once she marries, she can never return to Israel.

I guess God will forgive me for not going to church anymore. Fear that I may be sitting next to a psycopath like Marcel.

People like this is enough to turn people off, and to stray.

Interesting, Marcel quotes the bible. Typical religious hypocrite-nut.

Quote the part of the bible that suits you, yet, violate some of the ten commandments – thou shall not kill.
So killing, eye-for-an-eye, not helping neighbors, greed, is all okay!

Marcel: after all these debates you are no more than a religious psycho. So all you want to see is more Muslim Blood by Israeli thugs and then you want to kill all the Jews so they become Christians, and then the rapture would happen. You have a very twisted mind. You and your group shall burn in hell for eternity

World Focus is again is gravely remiss in failing to report the humanitarian disaster in Palestine and that Israel is using banned and illegal weapons–white phospherous bombs and a very awful type of bomb–dense inert jmetal explosives (dime) that severs the flesh from the bone. There must be an immediate stop to the Iraeli offensive and humanitarian aid and reporters must be let in. If the media did its job, everone would demand that Israeli stops its savagery.

Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
“Son of man, set your face toward Sidon, and prophesy against her,

“and say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD:
‘Thus says the Lord GOD:
“Behold, I am against you, O Sidon;
I will be glorified in your midst;
And they shall know that I am the LORD,
When I execute judgments in her and am hallowed in her.

For I will send pestilence upon her,
And blood in her streets;
The wounded shall be judged in her midst
By the sword against her on every side;
Then they shall know that I am the LORD

“And there shall no longer be a pricking brier or a painful thorn for the house of Israel from among all who are around them, who despise them. Then they shall know that I am the Lord GOD.”
‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “When I have gathered the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and am hallowed in them in the sight of the Gentiles, then they will dwell in their own land which I gave to My servant Jacob.

“And they will dwell safely there, build houses, and plant vineyards; yes, they will dwell securely, when I execute judgments on all those around them who despise them.
Then they shall know that I am the LORD their God.”‘”
Ezekiel 28

Israel Bombed Cemetery!!

BBC News this morning showed bombed destroying a cemetery. Not only do the Israelis enjoy killing, they can’t even show respect for the dead!!!!!!

Way to go Israel, keep behaving like psychotic killers.

PBS which a publicly owned organization must never be one sided in any of their comments or reporters.
Mr. Daniel Levy is a zionist israeli jews with an israeli passport in his pocket.
His opinion and comments cannot be fair and just.
You should always make sure that you bring totally newtralpeple to your TV news programs and notonly jews…!
