You nailed it Gary. People like Hamas have the advantage of not having to operate by the rules that constrain everyone else.

Yeah, he certainly has done quite a bit in a short time to make people want to ignore his posts. Problem is, other people will quote his nonsense that aren't on my ignore list, so I end up seeing his tripe anyway.

I am trying to ignore him, until he is openly lying,
but it still too many cases.

'S'ok ' is a pretty innocent collalquism, in English!

From the URBAN DICTIONARY:



s'ok

88 up, 19 down





A cross between 'its' and 'ok'. When you say it fast its s'ok (sokay). Its very simple and short.

"Oh I'm so sorry I'm late!"
"s'ok"

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=s'ok

I would strongly suggest that AT THIS POINT everyone involved in this recent insult exchange back out of Current events for at least two weeks, myself included. Lets just stop .
& give the admin moderator a breaaaaaaaaaaather!

Thanks- there is a lot to be said for simply stating one's views. Really, Micate & RS116, if you are going to attach an insult to every second post, why ask me, or anyone, for further research?

Young Sharons ' attachment to the Kadima bloc is opposed by many of its core members, given his record of fraud convictions. He certianly doesn't speak for the 'Kadima block'.

FULL POSTING STOP TWO WEEKS

Not very impressive

Israel and Hamas concluded a cease-fire before you gentlemen did.

Hamas-Israel ceasefire takes hold but mistrust runs deep

Quote:
CAIRO/GAZA (Reuters) - A ceasefire between Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers took hold on Thursday after eight days of conflict, although deep mistrust on both sides cast doubt on how long the Egyptian-sponsored deal can last.

I'm tempted to say that Hamas have probably just about run out of rockets, so they need a ceasefire while they re-supply.

However, I'll refrain from saying that.

One of the Canadian hasbarapunditti flagged this 'stock Theresienstadt ' out two years ago on the CBC Fora & got ripped a new one...
apparently, the pollution warning signs have been airbrushed out!

At Dachau, the guards used to laugh at forcing the inmates to handle excrement with their bare hands. In Gaza 's Human zoo, the guards seem to delight in watching people forced to swim in sewage.



Meeet the new boss, same as the old boss...

Here's an uplifting story...

People trying their best ..
The differnce here is those in the Zoo had a way out of the Zoo but chose to let the man eaters run the Zoo so everyone is punished for the behavior of the Man eaters.

You just did.

And your harassment is correct.
European Socialists will commend Hamas and Egypt, condemn Israel for some stupid reason and then turn a blind eye when Hamas resumes firing rockets once they get resupplied. The cycle continues.

They didn't even wait to rearm. Your prediction has come true.

Several rockets were launched from Gaza toward south Israel after 9 pm Wednesday, when the ceasefire between Hamas and Israel took effect. The IDF held its fire.

Air raid sirens were heard after 9 pm in Eshkol, Sderot and the Hof Ashkelon and Sha'ar Hanegev regional councils. Rockets landed in the Eshkol and Sha'ar Hanegev regional councils, but there were no reports of injury or damage.
As other posters have noted, Israel is getting all the pressure to restrain and cease fire because they actually live and deal in the civilized world.

From Israeli forum.
2 sirens in Ashkelon.
One 2h14 min after ceasefire,
another 2h44min.


Jerusalem Post does not confirm it.

http://www.jpost.com/NationalNews/Ar...aspx?id=293010


The Home Front Command decided that schools in southern Israel would remain closed on Thursday despite a night of quiet throughout Israel. A fragile sense of calm pervaded the South after terrorists in Gaza fired five rockets toward it in the two hours that followed the 9 p.m. truce deadline. Since 11 p.m. no rocket attacks were reported.
