Gaza: Quotes that will be Remembered

Israel’s Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Saturday also said Israel “cannot really accept” a cease-fire with Hamas, rejecting calls by the United Nations and the European Union for a truce after Israel Air Force strikes killed at least 230 people in Gaza.”For us to be asked to have a cease-fire with Hamas is like asking you to have a cease-fire with Al-Qaida,” Barak said in an interview with Fox News. “It’s something we cannot really accept.” (Ha’aretz, 12/28/08)

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said on Sunday the Islamist group Hamas could have avoided the Israeli attacks on Gaza: “We talked to them and we told them ‘please, we ask you, do not end the truce. Let the truce continue and not stop’ so that we could have avoided what happened,” he said in Cairo. (Ha’aretz, 12/28/08)

    Rabbi, I appreciate all of the opportunities you have provided for further learning and thought during this Chanukah period. Thank you for your time and effort. All of it was incorporated into our Chanukah celebration this year.
