Israeli Official: Temporary Truce Possible

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) - There's word that Israel is
considering suspending its Gaza air strikes to give Hamas militants
a chance to halt their rocket attacks.
An Israeli defense official says, however, that there remains
the threat of an Israeli ground offensive if a cease-fire does not
hold.
Israeli officials say Palestinian militants have fired off more
than 250 rockets and mortars since the Israeli offensive began
Saturday.
During that time, more than 370 people have been killed.
Gaza residents are reporting food shortages in some areas.
Officials say Israel has let some aid through its crossings with
Gaza, despite the military offensive. One hundred trucks were
allowed in today.
Jordan, the Red Cross and the World Health Organization are also
preparing to send medical supplies.

    They bombed during the last truce every day and then increased dramatically after the truce ended. Why does Israel have to give Hamas yet another chance? Who else would be so merciful against a group bent on your destruction as a nation? A truce is a mistake at this point.

    I would call a truce after i level every thing first, total defeat is the way you win total defeat.
