    With a tenuous cease-fire in place and no rocket fire between Israel and Hamas for the first time in more than a week, Palestinians have begun to clean up rubble and damage inflicted by Israeli missiles.

    People in Gaza filled the streets Thursday morning, inspecting damage to homes and businesses. Overnight, gunfire erupted in the crowded streets of the Palestinian enclave to celebrate the announcement of a cease-fire in the bloody conflict between Israel and Hamas, the Palestinian militant political group that essentially controlsl the Gaza Strip.

    "It's a nice message from Palestinians - don't mess with Palestinians," said Jalal Marzen Wednesday night during a celebration outside Gaza's Al-Shifa Hospital. He and others pointed to the targeting of Tel Aviv by Hamas rockets as a shifting in the balance of power, arguing Israel's calculations would be forced to change ahead of the next flare-up. "It's huge, it's huge for us!" Marzen exclaimed.

    Later, however, Israeli officials said several missiles from Gaza flew into Israel after the cease-fire. Israel did not respond with the air srikes that have blanketed Gaza in the past week.

    Hamas has declared Nov. 22 a national holiday and said it would be celebrated every year.

    "We call on everyone to celebrate, visit the families of martyrs, the wounded, those who lost homes," Hamas said.

    "For first time, the Israeli people felt what bombs mean, what rockets mean, what war means, what killing people means," said clothing store owner Bassem Diazeda, who said he only became a supporter of Hamas since the escalation.

    Israel is your typical aggressive fascist state based on racism and apartheid.

    The zionists learned well from their nazi mentors.

    And have surpassed the Third Reich's techniques of disinformation and propaganda. :cool:

    SunniMan,

    I celebrate the cease fire, along with them, but more for the fact that the killings of innocent civilians inside Gaza has stopped, at least for now, for today, for that reason more than anything else!

    Today we have Peace in Gaza, now we just have to dismantle that Occupation that deprives Palestinains of their basic human rights every single day, once and for all, end it, wipe it off the face of the map!

    I was just reading an article on Mondoweiss, a man in Gaza writes about feeling devastated, as the cease fire has kicked in, and he writes a little bit about how he feels, what he sees and has seen and witnessed and lived through over the past 8 days.

    "For the last seven days, I’ve been following the news, translating them and posting them on twitter after they are “confirmed”. One martyr here, another there. A child here, a child there. A woman here and a woman there. One, two three injuries coming into Alshifa hospital. I’ve been eliminating my feelings for seven days. I’ve been watching my language, spelling, punctuation and feelings. Today, I broke down. For a moment, I didn’t care where the last explosion was. If what exploded has exploded, what is my tweet going to do about it, I thought again. My Mom said the name of the place being targeted in surprise. Why are you surprised, I thought again. They’ve been bombing children for the past seven days. Why on earth are you surprised they’re targeting a commercial building.

    In Gaza, children, if their lives were spared, wait in hospitals, bandaged and scared, for their dead mothers to rush towards them. Others lie alone, along with their siblings, or beside their father, faces deeply cut, hearts still as rubble, their eyes sleepy as in the night before when they couldn’t sleep, some with twinkling eyes. Still, they breathe no more.
    In Gaza, a mother runs to hospital praying and hoping that the unidentified torn child isn’t hers. She knows it’s him. He was playing football a second ago. His jacket is also torn there beside their house. She is definite. She only collapses when she is confronted with the fact. In Gaza, a man, blouse drained in blood, cracks when a doctor tells him that his son is already dead. He doesn’t know in which corner he should hide his face. A wall interrupts his strides. And, he crumbles there. A boy, in Gaza, hasn’t spoken to anyone since the news of his friend’s death. He walks in his friend’s funeral with endless looks inspecting the nothingness before him."

    That may be true, but muslims countries are the worst of all, and you know why, I don't even have to tell you, because you know how bad they are and you choose not to live in one of those bogus countries yourself. Or grow a beard even.

    Islam is not typical at all---it is an amoral imperialist brutal idelogy with motive
    of enslavement of the world to its sociopathic core elite who model themselves
    on a vile rapist born in Mecca. Its legal code inspired the Nuremburg laws of
    Adolf Abu Hitler even to the point of marking jews with yellow insignia The legal
    code "SHARIAH" legalized murder, rape, pillage, enslavment and genocide which are
    the features that attracted the attention of ADOLF HITLER_----that "abu ali" moniker was added later by his adoring muslims allies While Adolf abu ali never attained
    the massive genocides accomplished by muslim ----he did murder in excess of
    20 million people. Muslims comitted genocides reaching 100 million --at a throw.

    Its filth is unparalleled in human history and is still ongoing Just in the past
    single century-----genoicides in the millions in Biafra, Uganda, Sudan and even
    East pakistan There are ongoing albeit of a lesser dimension of christians and hindus in
    Indonesia and Kenya etc etc etc Presently based on the Imperialist ideology that
    any place where any of its leaders farted is MUSLIM LAND FOREVER------the impreialist muslim campaign spearheaded by an fascist movment "MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD" has jined forces with Osama bin Laden's Al queida and despite the lethal animosity between tow branches of the VILE CREED --to wit shiite and sunni -----those brutal moities have also joined forces in order to annhilate the creed which preceded their filth in the Middle east to wit Judaism and Israel Not atrocity is too obscene for any of the players supporting the muslim cause

    Israel is the only fascist, racist state with the blessing of the world's sole superpower.
    Perhaps rich Muslims would be worse than rich Jews and rich Christians, but I'm not too anxious to find out.

    Only in the twisted calculus of pal-arabs would more than a hundred people killed and billions of dollars worth of property damage be a reason to celebrate.

    Yeah - "don't mess with Palestinians", they may wind up causing their own deaths in even greater numbers as a reason to celebrate.
