Good to see Hamas keeping the ceasfire

Peace continues to reign supreme in the middle east
two rockets hit southern Israel. Later three Israelis were injured in a mortar barrage by Palestinian militants

Sweet jesus.

Yet at the same time
An adviser to Ismail Haniya, who heads the Hamas government in Gaza, told AFP news agency the militant group was waiting for Israel's response to a truce offer, transmitted by Egypt, adding that things were "moving in a positive direction
I assume "Israel's response" will now be military - and understandably really since Hamas have a funny way of keeping a ceasefire.

Also to add into the mix, even the PLO are getting fucked off at the attitude of Hamas in Gaza these days
Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas told journalists in Cairo that talks were impossible with anyone who rejected the supremacy of the Palestine Liberation Organisation, in an apparent reference to Hamas's leadership.

He also accused Hamas of putting Palestinian lives at risk.

"They... have taken risks with the blood of Palestinians, with their fate, and dreams and aspirations for an independent Palestinian state,"

But at least Hamas are fighting a clean, ethical liberation struggle
a rocket landed between two nursery schools in Eshkol region of southern Israel, media reports said
Which seems to fit with the Hamas tactics from back in early January when Mahmoud al-Zahar said:
The Israelis have sentenced their children to death... They have legitimized the killing of their people all over the world
What a nice chap he isn't

In other news those loonies at the stop the war coalition have organised a "songs for gaza" event. I can hardly fucking wait,
