CEASEFIRE CEASED

No more rockets:

Palestinian militants will cease rocket attacks on Israel from the Gaza Strip, President Mahmoud Abbas told Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert in a telephone call …

Well, maybe not:

A Kassam rocket, fired from the Gaza Strip, landed in open territory in the western Negev on Sunday morning, less than an hour after the ceasefire declared by the Palestinians became effective.

UPDATE. More rockets:

Israeli troops withdrew from the Gaza Strip as a last-minute cease-fire deal took hold Sunday morning, but two major Palestinian militant groups, saying they had no intention of stopping their attacks, fired volleys of homemade rockets into Israel.

    1. Hey, they almost made it one hour!  That’s a remarkable show of self-restraint for Palestinians.

    1. Well, that was a big surprise. A “remarkable show of self-restraint” indeed.

    1. Who was it that said that Muslims should talk with two tongues, one for the believers and one for the infidels? Was that in the Koran, or was it some Islamic leader?

    1. I am sure the world will somehow find a way to blame the ‘breaking of the ceasefire’ on Israel.

      How the fuck can Abbas seriously contemplate trying to stop ‘militants’ (um, ‘terrorists’, cough) when he has absolutely no power over them. He is a fucking idiot for thinking that he can.

      Less than one hour. Yeah well, that may be a record for them, somewhat. I think they refused statehood, on each occasion, even quicker – 10 minutes top.

    1. Yeah another hudna whilst they wait for the new shipments of rockets from the Iranians through the tunnels.
      If Olmert also starts to talk peace Hammas will send in another wave of suicide bomber grannies and the British lefists will start dancing in the streets of London again.
      Next thing the french will offer to “monitor” the cease fire!!

    1. A rocket launched before the cease-fire that loops around the moon might come down days and days later.

      A close reading of the fine print is necessary.

    1. Maybe it was stolen from a zionist lab and was actually a secret ‘hover’ rocket that uses new technology to remain in flight for extended periods.  The zionists still have to work on the targeting and range, though.

    1. the hover technology, was of course stolen by mossad agents based in Perth, Western Austalia.

    1. Well Im suprised!
      I bet it was those sneaky JoooS who set it off themselves to demonise the happy kite flying people of palestine! Whre childern frollick in grassy medows, and millions of MENSA members strive to improve the lives of generations to come. The elderly are revered for their wisdom and the realm of religion never interfears.
      Im sure they are led by a wonderful shy unicorn whos only thoughts are how to improve the lives of those he serves.

    1. Daylight saving is a Zionist plot to cheat an hour out of the lives of Palestinians.  In this manner, eventually, Palestinians will cease to exist.  The cease fire will begin on Tel Aviv time for the Jews, Gaza Central time for the Pallies.

    1. They probably just forgot to adjust their watches for daylight saving.

    1. #11 and #12 – You should be aware that Palestinians actually have killed themselves due to the bomb going off an hour early thanks to daylight savings. See related Darwin Award.

      Palestinian militants will cease rocket attacks on Israel from the Gaza Strip

      And they did. Of course, the agreement didn’t stop rocket “defensive actions on the Zionist entity”. It’s all in the semantics.

    1. “We offer you a truce on behalf of our two main groups, Hamas, Fatah, and Al-Aqsa Brigades – make that three main groups not including Islamic Jihad … er, four groups … we offer you a truce … (WHOOSH, BANG!) … who fired that accursed rocket?”

    1. #11 and #12

      Hahahaha. Daylight saving. I like that one.

      I am surprised even if they can afford watches, with all the money that goes towards buying rockets.

      They will probably argue that the rocket fired was a signal that the ceasefire had begun, that’s all. Any excuse these morons can think of, they will use it.

    1. Something is definintely up here. That recent assassination in Lebannon, Hamas saying that if they don’t get their state within 6 months they will start another infatada now this “ceasefire” deal? Plans within plans and none of them good.

    1. “Cease fire” probably doesn’t translate into Arabic.

      I just love those homemade rockets. Just like the ones dear old Grannie used to cook up before she decided to have one last fling and paint the town red.
      Memories …

    1. Homemade rockets freshly prepared on the premises.

      Out the back …

    1. ‘Homemade’ rockets eh?  I’d bet you dollars to yen that there are more than a few metal workshops in Israel that could whip up a batch of Katushyas in a few days.  (Its a Russian design from WW2)

      Send 50 or 100 ‘homemade’ rockets over the border in the other direction.

      Every day for 6 months.

      Then ask Hamas, Fatah, et al if they still want to play.

      Disproportionate force is the only way to deal with these subhuman cockroaches.

    1. # 22, “Cease fire” probably doesn’t translate into Arabic.”

      Rebeccah, indeed it does. It means “cease protesting, start firing.”

    1. Or, to update an old jewish joke:

      Hamas terrorist fires rocket into Israel.  Outraged UN observer berates him: “Didn’t you hear about the ceasefire agreement?  No rockets!”
      Terrorist: “But it didn’t say absolutely positively no rockets.”

    1. The ceasefires are probably being used to have all the Palestinian grannies draw straws to hash out the upcoming suicide-bombing schedule.

    1. Which group fired the rockets?

      Was it the People’s Front of Judea or the Judean People’s Front?

      I can never work out which group is which.
