Cease-fire holding in Gaza between Hamas, Israel

Jerusalem - Israel says a new cease-fire with the militant Hamas group is holding in the Gaza Strip, a day after the two sides agreed to resume talks in Cairo.

The military says no rockets were fired on Monday at Israel and that the military hasn't targeted any locations in the densely populated territory since the cease-fire went into effect on midnight on Sunday.

The quiet allows for the resumption of talks on a long-term truce to end a month of heavy fighting in Gaza that has killed More than 1 900 Palestinians. On the Israeli side, 67 people have died, all but three of them soldiers.

Palestinian negotiators are pressing for an end to the crippling Gaza blockade imposed by Egypt and Israel, while Israel wants all Gaza militants to be disarmed.

Good luck with that. Hamas will never stop attacking Israel. This time, when they fire rockets into Israel, hold nothing back. Level the place!

The famous bombing of King David hotel which took place on the 22 July 1946,was committed by a Jewish terrorist group known as a Irgun under the leadership Menichem Begin a Jewish terrorist who killed 91 innocent people and injured 41 ,labeled by the British as the biggest terrorist attack,he was called terrorist number one by the British government,after a few years he becomes the president of Israel and a few later gets the Nobel prize for peace. If you see the world map before 1945 Israel did not exist,they stole the land from Palestinians who welcomed them with opened arms ,They kicked the palestinians out of their own land, Now the government and the pro greedy Zionist supporters that agree with this unjust cause label the Palestinian as terrorists.

Boycott Divestment Sanctions on Israel until it lifts the siege on Palestine.
