Time for the "Stop" the War Campaign to peace off

For a short while this morning there was a hope of peace finally breaking out between Israel and the terrorists of Hamas. The BBC reported:

Israel has accepted an Egyptian truce proposal for the conflict with Gaza.

Hamas, which controls Gaza, is still discussing the plan, but its armed wing has rejected it as a "surrender".

Under the terms, the ceasefire should begin immediately, followed by a series of meetings in Cairo with high-level delegations from both sides.

Palestinian officials say at least 192 people have been killed by Israeli air strikes launched eight days ago to stop militants firing rockets into Israel.

There have been no Israeli air strikes into Gaza since the 09:00 ( 06:00 GMT) truce, but Israel says 39 rockets have been fired from Gaza into Israel after the deadline.

It didn't last long.

Hamas continued to fire rockets refusing to contemplate peace because they think its "surrender", so continue to put innocent Palestinian lives at risk.

The BBC added:

The armed wing of Hamas, the Izz al-Din Qassam Brigades, dismissed the initiative, saying its battle with Israel would "increase in ferocity and intensity".

No surprise really.

Hamas are not interested in the welfare of Palestinians because they are not a "liberation" organisation. They are and always have been Islamist extremists with vile anti-Semitic, genocidal tendencies.

Not that you would realise that listening to their demented supporters in the so-called anti-imperialist wing of the far left. The appeasers of the laughingly titled Stop the War Campaign are calling a demonstration on July 19th demanding an "end to the bombing of Gaza".

What they should be calling for is Hamas to stop firing rockets at Israel.

As with the Ukraine and elsewhere the Stop the War types always seem to support the aggressor.

So much for stopping war.

As Shimon Peres said:

"There are two camps. The camp of terror and the camp of peace. Not only here but across the world. This operation is an answer to the camp of terror. The IDF targeted hundreds of rocket launchers, training camps and tunnels. We all wish to lower the flames, we want an end to the fighting and we hope to see it soon. But there can be no compromise with terror. A ceasefire must be on these terms. No more rockets. No more terror.

Many of our neighbours stand with us in this fight. It is a global threat and we must fight it globally. Terror is destroying the fabric of the Arab world, it harms those who allow it as much as those it targets."

Oh and here is what the Egyptian media think of Hamas lest someone tell you this is a "Zionist" point of view!
