UN Security Council calls for immediate Gaza ceasefire; US abstains

Update: ‘Hard’ for Israel to spare Gaza civilians: Rice

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has defended Israel in the face of civilian deaths in Gaza, saying “it’s hard” for Israeli troops to protect residents because the area is so densely populated and Hamas allegedly uses people as human shields. More from ABC

Clueless, worthless, hopeless, spineless Condi. The failure of affirmative action on display to the very last day…

                                  

Spencer:

The US abstained. Not, “The U.S. stood up and stoutly defended the right and necessity for Israel to defend itself against jihad attacks from Hamas.” Oh, no. Instead, the U.S. abstained, and Rice spoke out in favor of the ceasefire resolution. Did anyone speak of how anything short of destroying Hamas would only restore the status quo ante, and lead to the resumption of jihad attacks upon Israel from Gaza? I doubt Rice did. I doubt anyone did.

UNITED NATIONS — Three days of intense negotiations over the wording of a Gaza cease-fire resolution culminated Thursday night in the U.N. Security Council passing the measure, calling for an immediate, durable truce between Israel and Hamas.The resolution passed by a 14-0 vote, with the United States abstaining. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said the U.S. agrees with the principles of the cease-fire resolution but wants to see the outcome of an Egyptian effort to bring the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table.

The cease-fire resolution spearheaded by Egypt and France must be “not just applauded, but supported,” Rice said.

Despite the breakthrough in the United Nations, the two-week-old war in the Gaza Strip raged on, and early Friday, an Israeli airstrike flattened a five-story building in northern Gaza, one of more than 30 targets struck before dawn by Israeli warplanes.

Hamas security officials said the strike killed at least seven people, including an infant….

 

Sure. But they didn’t mention the likely fact that they planted the infant there…

Its showtime in Palistan!
