    The issue being discussed here by Israel's own apologist-come government spokesman, Mark Regev. You can hear his admission on the video and even watch his lips move in sync with the words when he agrees that *prior* to Nov 4th the ceasefire was indeed holding. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixrYv5pUzps&feature=related From 236 rockets being 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 [equating to a 98% reduction in rocket fire] by the IDF raid on Gaza which killed six Hamas militants. Peter Williams. Your distortion of events is done on the assumption that people will not be aware of the chronology due to the dimming of time and can not be bothered to check the facts. A dumb assumption.
