Can anyone confirm this? [/quote] There were some rumours on the web (mostly Twitter) stating that Israel would give Hamas 36 hours to stop firing missiles or otherwise the IDF was ready to go in by ground. But they have been saying that they would increase actions and would go in gaza by ground for days now. And mostly Palestinian sources are telling that there might still be some hope for a cease-fire, but that rumour also has been going around the web for days now. All official sources were reporting that talks in Egypt (Cairo) have failed because of demands that could not be aggreed on betwen Israel and Hamas. I seriously doubt that there will be any solution this time. This all just started out at a to perfect moment in time for some of the people that pull the strings from behind the scenes. [/quote] I doubt any ceasefire would be beneficial to either side. Hamas has had several of its leaders taken out, if they quit, they lose face. Especially since they feel Egypt/Russia have their backs in this. Israel on the other hand would probably feel that if they dont finish the task and make a ceasefire its probably going to be a recurring problem. Cast Lead in 2009 brought no improvement. They know that as much as we do. Besides, any ceasefire/truce terms would very likely include the lift of the Gaza blockade. Something Israel would never, ever agree to at this point. 2 "wars" in a timespan of less than 4 years did nothing to improve relationships or trust between the two sides. That and we have the influence of coming Israeli elections at play here. If the Israeli people feel the job isnt finished and southern israel remains in danger, they will blame the current administration for not finishing the job. All of this leads me to conclude that i dont see any chance of hostilities ending any time soon. If it does, it will be fragile at best, and just delaying the inevitable. [/quote] I must agree with you on the fact that we will probably see no ceasefire whatsoever. And I think we can agree on the fact that we will see a fast escalation of the ongoing situation in Israel and maybe even in the whole wide region over there. It will not only escalate there, but this could have tremendous impact on most of our lives. Because with all of this Middle-East doom around the corner there will come lots more doom. Things will turn into a pretty shitty situation really fast. And most of the people will not even notice what is going on at the moment that all this doom will take place in their lives that seem to be so quiet and nice at this point in time. It will spread out all over the world real fast, like a nasty un-curable disease that will get most of the people sick really really quick. And before they know they have it, it will be already over for them. You get what I am trying to point out here? Yes, I think you do. I somehow think we are on one line here on this one. [/quote]
