LA Times reports: Hamas and Israel agreed to a cease-fire that took effect Wednesday evening following a week of intense diplomacy to stop rocket fire and airstrikes that have pounded the Gaza Strip and Israel and raised fears of plunging the region into a wider war. The truce began at 9 p.m. local time and appeared at least initially to be taking hold.

The deal was announced in Cairo by Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohamed Amr and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who flew to the region Tuesday night as hopes for a truce remained elusive amid heavy artillery exchanges.

    One can only hope. Right now I am concerned about the travel bans and the embassy closings. Things are so freaky.

    Like all terrorist organizations before, they will only call a truce long enough to restock and reload.

    Fight? That is not my style... that is what you do.

    When you reject Peace , you reject Jesus.

    Nope, not true. But true peace is only found in Christ and I have found that. Peace will never come to this world until its time for Christ to return.
    Facts are not rejecting peace.

    Jesus tells us over and over again. yet you reject Him.


    “Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.” Hebrews 12:14-15

    “Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.” James 3:18

    ? Again you are not being anything Christ Like. People like you who reject Jesus is why we have no peace and dead soldiers. We will have war and dead soldiers as long as people keep ignoring JESUS while you support and defend war.

    Peace embraces all of life. It includes personal peace with God, peace in human relations, peace among races and nations, and peace with the whole of God's creation.

    Psalms 34:19 A righteous man may have many troubles,but the Lord delivers him from them all;20 he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken.21 Evil will slay the wicked; the foes of the righteous will be condemned.22 The Lord redeems his servants; no one will be condemned who takes refuge in him.

    Jesus is either a reliable guide or He is not. We must either take Jesus seriously or not, and if we do not, we should drop His teaching altogether. If we decide to straddle the fence and strive for some characteristics but not others, we become hypocrites. Of course, the true Christian will accept it, learn from it and grow in it.

    Matthew 11:28, 29 - Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

    He who says, “I am in him”, must walk according to his walk. John 2:6

    I don't think that Israel will be able to resist breaking the ceasefire again. They want to keep their hands those gas deposits on the coast of Gaza and to do that thay have to keep haamas fighting. Israel broke the first ceasefire and I think they will break the second one. I do hope that I am wrong.

    I have a bad feeling about this. I think it was done to give the middle east countries time to regroup, join forces and then attack.
