Israel made 100 strikes last night. And Hamas launched in excess of 30 rockets.
There can be no truce until Hamas stops sending rockets into Israel. And provoking Israeli responses.
Contrary to what they keep saying to the media... Its obvious.Hamas doesnt want peace. They want to draw Israel in deeper hoping the other arab nations will respond in their support.
So they will keep playing up the civillian toll, the damage, and the zionist aggression angle .. And keep playing it up to the media to get everyones sympathies.
While they continue shooting rockets at civilian targets in Israel . And claiming they are the victims.
I believe Israel will begin its ground offensive by next week.

In return Israel had demanded an end of the continual rocket attacks on its southern communities and enhanced efforts from Egypt and others in the international community to prevent Hamas from replenishing its weapons supply.

Since the Turks dont seem to want to push their weight around.... And the focus on dealing with Iran's nuclear program..
I think he sees and opening for Egypt to become the new "big dog" in the middle east. Question is what happens from here. His ties to the Muslim Brotherhood are disturbing. And the Egyptian Army is very political. But right now silent.
I think this whole situation is becoming potentially very unstable. As the Syrian conflict continues... and the chances of a lasting cease fire between Israel and Hamas is unlikely.
It could evolve into a situation where Iran, Turkey, and Egypt will be eyeing each other to see who tries to push their influence. And become the dominant Muslim country in the region... Its starting to take on a look that reminds me of the final scene in "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly"

The half million plus Alwais in Northern Lebaonon will join with those in Syria, Turkey etc etc. The biggest danger of an Alawi state in or around the former Syria is that it will be a heavily armed state, friendly to Iran. It will also result in Russia maintaining a naval base in Tartous.
