Well I've no axe to grind but if he's not elected to run for president and the present incumbent gets another four years in office,  expect more of the same imo

Serious negotiations being made.


They should be getting on with it,  people's lives at risk daily, 


Sanctions by every country for a ceasefire should be in readiness if they don't stop the killing and misery.

In pictures: Children check debris as aid trucks wait outside Gaza

Let's bring you the latest images from in and around Gaza which have just come through to us.
While a lot of the focus remains on aid getting into the Gaza Strip, images show many Palestinians living in tough conditions.

Ceasefire.


It's clear why Hamas don't want a ceasefire which means they give up their hostages for a temporary ceasefire which may last a week or so,  is that the stumbling block?


The war could start all over again,  their has to be a permanent ceasefire to end all this desecration of human life,  then wait to see who breaks it, if one side breaks it then there has to be a buffer zone (U.N.?  about time they proved their worth isn't it?)

Israel's bombardment of the Gaza Strip continued late into the night on Friday, with reports of sustained air strikes and ground attacks.

A strike on the Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza killed at least 18 people, according to Palestinian media.

People in another camp, Bureij, were ordered by Israel's army to move south as it continued its ground offensive.

In New York, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution urging more humanitarian aid for Gaza.

However the motion fell short of calling for an immediate ceasefire in the war.

Wafa, the official Palestinian news agency, said at least 18 people died and dozens were injured in an air strike on a house in Nuseirat, in central Gaza.

An air strike also destroyed a water treatment plant in Jabalia, northern Gaza, it added.

Above,it looks like a final push,all the troops as many as took on  Jordan ,Syria ,Egypt and Lebanon at the same time.
One Brigade in reserve,just in case.
Politicians and nappies must be changed often,and for the same reason

Don't hold your breath waiting for the BBC or Wafa to give an accurate or unbiased report on this conflict  because on is an apologist for terrorism and the other is Wafa.

The Israeli military has vowed to continue its operation in Gaza, but admitted it is "protracted" and "difficult".

A spokesman said over the weekend it was expanding its "ground operations in the southern and northern Gaza Strip".

Meanwhile, the US said Joe Biden spoke to the Israeli PM and emphasised the "critical need" to protect civilians.

In response, Benjamin Netanyahu said the war would go on until all Israeli goals were achieved.

President Biden also told reporters that he had not asked Mr Netanyahu for a ceasefire.

On Friday, the UN Security Council approved a resolution demanding large-scale aid deliveries to Gaza - but stopped short of calling for a ceasefire between the two warring sides.

Talks held in Egypt earlier this week designed to secure a fresh truce between Israel and Hamas have so far failed to deliver results.

A Palestinian official familiar with the ceasefire negotiations has told the BBC that Egypt presented a new three-stage plan that begins with a two-week humanitarian truce which could be extended, during which Hamas releases 40 hostages and Israel releases 120 Palestinian prisoners.

Time for war crimes to be called out and who is responsible because in my opinion Netanyahu is using this war to cling to power,  who is his opposition in Israel?


Should Hamas have waited until after Netanyahu's trial on corruption started/finished?


Unholy wars.

Terrorist or freedom fighter , hero or villain ,winner or loser , depends on which side your looking from, were the allies war criminals fire bombing Dresden were the Americans war criminals dropping two atom bombs on Japan , were the allies war criminals for demanding unconditional surrender from the Germans backing them into a corner with no room to manoeuvre a early surrender ?. , the victors write the history ,
