Israel, Hamas Agree to Cease-Fire

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to President Obama, telling him that he has agreed to give Egyptian-brokered cease-fire a chance to succeed. Obama reportedly commended Netanyahu for agreeing to the cease-fire.

UPDATE: The cease-fire takes effect at 9 pm local time.

Complete victory for Hamas, Iran and Egypt. IRGC today publicly acknowledged the transfer of Fajr 5 technology to Hamas. This was a total game changer as the Zionist cowards and Iron Dumb totally failed as a deterrent.

This is a complete strategic failure for the Zionists as Hamas will now be more emboldened and better armed as all border restrictions are lifted. Incidentally, a large portion of Kaddafi's arsenal ended up in Gaza, including Grads, ATGM and SAM, hence the Zionist reluctance to fight a gruelling ground war against Hamas that has also benefitted from Iranian tunelling expertise. All they need to do now is to make more bunkers and shelters for civilians for the next round.

THIS HAMAS VISTORY IS A TOTAL VINDICATION OF IRANIAN WEAPONRY & RESISTANCE FRONT. I wonder if Zionist Nothing Yahoo, the big mouth braggart Zionist coward will survive this disaster?

IRAN & Hamas = 1
Zionists & US = ZERO+Zero=Zero

For Israel, a truce is the worst of all worlds: Tied hands, Hamas unbowed

DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis
November 20, 2012, 10:28 PM (GMT+02:00) Israeli tank fires against Gaza
Jerusalem, Cairo and Gaza awaited US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's arrival Tuesday night, Nov. 20, to clinch the Gaza ceasefire accord. Israel held back from approval until then and the Palestinians stepped up their missile blitz. debkafile’s analysts say that by giving in to international pressure for a ceasefire – against the objections of top military chiefs and intelligence pros - Israel’s leaders would show they have not learned from their predecessors’ mistakes in ending two wars inconclusively.

Pertaining to the radical jihadi mercenaries in Syria, plus the effect an Islamist take over will have on Israel.

Great success for Hamas, if the Gaza Blockade lifted.

Israel was not able to stop Missilefire from Gaza and of course a land offensive is only a illusion Hamas has Anti Tank and
schulder fired airdefense rockets,
which shoot down the Tanks and helicopter the israel can not march in to Gaza.

Proof my friend, I think you will find that Egypt confiscated all the weapons. MB under Mursi is a pawn in Sunni and Khazar Zionist domination. Do not trust or expect Egypt to provide any assistance to the poor suffering people of Gaza.
Yesterday Christian Ronaldo player of Real Madrid sold his golden boot and donated the proceeds worth over $1.5M to the children of Gaza.

You are largely correct. Egypt is still a US/Zionis pawn and the Muslim Brotherhood is a western creation to sow divisiveness amongst Muslims. Morsi himself is a US green card holder. Hamas itself in the initial phases was a Zionist creation and nurtured by their Shin Beth to weaken Arafat's corrupt Fatah. Now pathetic Mahmoud Abbas is worse than a marginal joke in the West Bank. Mahmoud Abbas has been a total puppet and colluding in the murder of his own people.

However, there is grassroots support amongst Arab Street for Palestiniansm specially amongt the oppressed Bedouin tribes of Sinai who allow smuggling of weapons to Hamas. On the whole, Egyptian policies are still totally controlled by Zionist Khazars as you correctly point out. Egypt needs a real revolution to free itself from poverty and Zionist subservience.

The leader of the Israeli opposition party Kadima has admitted that the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas emerged stronger than the Tel Aviv regime during the recent Israeli war on the Gaza Strip, saying ceasefire was a mistake.

“A cease-fire at this point is a mistake; Hamas has the upper hand,” Shaul Mofaz said on Wednesday, adding, “We should not have stopped at this stage. Hamas got stronger and we did not gain deterrence.”

He further acknowledged that the Israeli regime could not achieve its goals during the eight-day military offensive on the blockaded Gaza Strip.

If the MB was a "western creation" , why was it brutally suppressed for decades under the western backed Mubarak Regime?

Israeli media say an Iron Dome missile fired to intercept Palestinian Grad rockets missed its target and landed near one of the busiest highways in the Israeli city of Ashdod on November 21

The Iron Dome missile shield marked another failure as its missile went in a wrong direction toward a busy highway instead of heading upwards to the Palestinian rockets, and caused an explosion only 30 meters from the road, the media stated.
