Islamic Jihad in Gaza; no end to the conflict despite cease-fire

The belief is that with the guns silent the dialogue can begin, and a new permanent peace will break out.  A nice thought, the hope of a calm future but the reality is, with Islamic doctrine driving the hatred, and Hamas Charter demanding the death of the Jews and the destruction of Israel there cannot be any kind of peace for Israel, ever.  Some refugees may like and even clandestinely support Israel but their voices are drowned out by the virulent doctrinal hatred of their leaders.  Until Islam is reformed or rendered obsolete, there is no peace for anyone in the Middle East.

Islamic Jihad: Gaza ceasefire not end of battle

GAZA, Nov. 22 (Xinhua) -- The armed wing of Islamic Jihad movement said Thursday that the Egyptian-brokered ceasefire between Israel and Palestinian militant groups in the Gaza Strip does not mean an end to the conflict.

"The battle with the enemy has not ended," declared a masked gunman from al-Quds brigades.

"Our choice in fighting and getting weapons to defend our people is going on," he told at a press conference in Gaza City.

The ceasefire announced Wednesday night ended a week of cross- border violence between Israel and Palestinian armed groups led by Islamic Hamas movement, which controls Gaza.

The gunman noted that his group lost 10 fighters in the Israeli aerial offensive and fired 620 rockets and missiles towards Israeli cities.

Hamas took the credit for firing more rockets, including several that reached the outskirts of Jerusalem...

After the cease-fire was announced.  A blatant breach but Israel did nothing.  Who is the savage here?
