    ... on his own initiative, even according to a source that can hardly be considered pro-Israel. "Hamas declares end to Israel truce. Palestinian group Hamas has declared that the six-month ceasefire between Israel and the Gaza Strip is over. The ceasefire officially ended at daybreak in Gaza on Friday and came after armed Palestinian groups admitted that they had been using the truce to train and better arm themselves." (http://english.aljazeera.net/news/middleeast/2008/12/200812192436422934.html) And Israel warned Hamas very clearly before reacting militarily saying that Gaza would face the consequences of the continued rocket fire. No excuses. And sorry Miggy: regrettably the Palestinians are those who don't want to negotiate up till now, not Israel. Hamas should make some goodwill gesture if it wants an agreement and free movement: release Shalit, recognize Israel right to exist, stop the terror attacks and the propaganda. Don't you agree?

Israel’s condemnation of Pride attack is hollow

Behind the pinkwashing, it turns out homophobia in its worst forms exists within the government.
