Peter Williams [part time unpaid talk back apologist for Israel] writes of a 'mythical' ceasefire. Mark Regev disagrees. Mark Regev [Israel's own full time apologist-come government spokesman] can be seen and heard agreeing that *prior* to Nov 4th the ceasefire that Peter Williams says lasted four days was indeed holding. Regev knew the facts were undeniable. Peter Williams sees facts as inconvenient obstacles to be avoided or distorted for useful ends. ie. to sew confusion. The official Israeli admission here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixrYv5pUzps&feature=related 236 rockets were fired in May and June[7 weeks] 2008 up to the ceasefire on June18th after which there were a total of 18 projectiles fired from Gaza over a period of the next four and a half months until the decisive smashing of the ceasefire on Nov 4th by the IDF raid on Gaza which killed six Hamas militants. This equates to an approximate 98% reduction in rocket fire during the June 18th to Nov 4th period. Worth noting is that this small amount of rocket firing during the time when the ceasefire held is also substantially below the rate of fire *since* Cast Lead was ended, putting paid to the theory that Cast Lead was ever about stopping rocket fire. Peter Williams distortion of events is made on the assumption that people will not be aware of the chronology or the facts due to the dimming of time and can not be bothered to check either. A dumb assumption. So yes, as even Mark Regev admits, there was a ceasefire, the argument that there was none is "is a myth propagated by the benighted and the confused".
