ISRAEL ADMITS BREAKING THE CEASEFIRE

 

For 18 days the Israeli Government has justified to the world that their decision to unleash a massive military campaign against the people of Gaza was as a direct result of Hamas’ breach of the ceasefire brokered by the Egyptian Government. Hamas has always stated that between June 2008 and November 2008 they did not fire a single rocket into Israel.

 

In a recent interview given to Channel 4 News, the Israeli Government’s official spokesman Mark Ragev finally admitted that Hamas did not break the ceasefire. http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=SILJxPTqjAM

 

So by their own admission the Israeli Government broke the terms of the ceasefire first and in doing so have slaughtered almost 1000 people and injured over 3000. They have wantonly destroyed the infrastructure of Gaza – That is a breach of international law and a war crime.
