So let me see if I got this right. Once again, we have a cease fire between Israel and Hamas brokered principally by Mohamed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood government. Hillary Clinton jumped on a plane and flew half way around the world so she could take center stage meeting with the principals so that the cease fire could take effect even though it had been worked out 24 hours earlier (according to Jennifer Griffin of Fox News).
And the deal is......
Israel stops firing on Hamas in Gaza
Israel agrees to loosen up border check points restrictions on Gaza
Hamas agrees to stop firing rockets into Israel
President Obama assures Israel he has her back
US gives another billion or so dollars to Egypt
Correction: Sorry. There was no mention of that latter condition. I don't know where I got that idea.
Whatever happened to the lasting deal our government had been talking about? This in no way changes Hamas' determination to wipe Israel off the map. Iran is still the force behind Hamas and Hezbollah. It is just a cease fire until the next go-around.
And how many rockets have been launched into Israel since the cease fire took effect? A dozen? Twenty?
But what does it matter? Nobel Peace prizes are awaiting Hillary Clinton, Mohammed Morsi and perhaps even Obama (his 2nd).
Two Nobel peace prizes. That would be a record, wouldn't it?
