* Actually, hudna doesn’t mean ‘cease fire’-, it means ‘give us time to regroup. You cease firing and we go and get some more rockets’.
Beleaguered Hamas leaders on Sunday signaled their willingness to reach a cease-fire with Israel, sources close to Hamas said.
Muslims are permitted to call for a hudna (truce) in order to regroup:
The sources said Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh sent urgent messages to the leaders of Egypt, Jordan, Qatar and Saudi Arabia urging them to work toward ending the IDF military operations in the Gaza Strip.
The sources told The Jerusalem Post that Haniyeh and other Hamas leaders also appealed to Turkey to intervene and convince Israel to halt its offensive.
Israeli military: “Hamas terror operatives shooting at us took up positions inside civilian homes while the civilians were still inside”Â
“The aim is to draw us into killing civilians to bring about international pressure to end our operation.”
In a major escalation over the past few days, Hamas has been firing long range Grad rockets at the strategic port city of Ashkelon, which is home to about 125,000 Israelis. Ashkelon houses a major electrical plant that powers most of the Gaza Strip.Â

* Everyday the soldiers of Allah murder and bomb hundreds, if not thousands, from Thailand to the Philippines, from Darfur to Nigeria, from Pakistan to Afghanistan, from Europe to Iraq to the Balkans in over 30 theaters of jihad around the world. Most of the time these lunatics kill other Muslims. Everyday now, for years, the swine from Hamas & Fatah have been firing rockets into Israel in order to ‘strike fear in the hearts of the enemy’, but now, since Israel strikes back, you hear nothing other than how evil the Jooozzz are for defending themselves. And the Western Media circus swallows it, totally.
* Here are some links about todays jihad:
IRAN’S President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said that Israel will be “uprooted” and its leaders put on trial as he condemned today’s deadly Israeli strikes in the Gaza Strip.
“I already said last year that the real Holocaust was in Palestine,” Mr Ahmadinejad told state television in an interview, alluding to his oft-repeated doubts about the magnitude of the mass slaughter of Jews in World War II.
PESHAWAR, Pakistan – A suicide bomber blew himself up Sunday at a large meeting called by tribal elders pushing for peace in northwestern Pakistan, killing at least 40 people and injuring more than 100, witnesses and officials said.
