    Jasmine Murphy you don't say where you are posting from. I assume you are American. Where was the six-month ceasefire by Israel ? There was a unilateral ceasefire for 16 months - in addition to an offer for an indefinite ceasefire - by Hamas, not Israel. Israel's response was to bomb Gaza killing hamas official Ghulam abu Samdhana, several civilians including childres and shelling the Ghalia family on Gaza beach. israel could have negotiated with Hamas in good faith. What Israel fears most is Hamas turining into a political organisation. What it prefers is low level warfare.
