The Hamas movement said Thursday that no progress had been made in the talks aimed at securing a deal for the release of captured Israeli occupation soldier Gilad Shalit, despite Israeli media reports.
A source in the Palestinian resistance organization said, "If the Israelis want to talk and discuss, they know where, how and with whom, but the people in Israel should know that its government is not doing a thing to advance the issue."
Abu Mujahed, a spokesman for the Popular Resistance Committees, also said that there was no news on the Shalit issue. "The Israelis are wrong if they think the war will help them pressure us on Shalit. Our demands have not changed: The entire list of prisoners we demanded, and in addition, launching talks on lifting the siege."
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was asked earlier Thursday about the opportunity to return Shalit now that the military operation in Gaza was over, and replied, "I believe the questions about Shalit are legitimate, but my response will not advance his release. I am working, I have worked and I will work for his release."
He claimed that the military offensive in Gaza "created leverages which could speed up Shalit's return to Israel."[read more]

In World War 1, ‘imperialists’ were threat to the civilized world. In World War 11, ‘Nazis and Facists’ were threat to the civilized world. In Cold War, Communists were threat to the “free world.” And now “Muslim terrorists” are threat to the civilized world. It is not a chance that there is always a threat to the “civilized world,” and to save the “civilized world” from this threat, slaughter of human being is a must.

GAZA: How Biased Media Manipulates the Facts THE media coverage of the war in Gaza by Western television companies is largely unfair and biased because of a refusal to show viewers the real images of the victims. One of the reasons for this is Israel’s decision not to allow the Western media in to Gaza. In addition to this outrageous censorship by a so-called democracy, we get the usual arguments that most of the images shown by the Arab media are too shocking to show the viewing public in the West. Admittedly, the horrific clip sent to me of a child’s head lying detached, among debris in Gaza did make me gasp.[read more]

First, it is a unilateral declaration of ceasefire which proves the non-symmetrical nature of that conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians in general and between Israel and Hamas in particular.
Second, Hamas was not really consulted. It was left out to be contacted by the third and forth parties. When you have important ceasefires and agreements like this one, negotiated indirectly from long distance, history teaches us that they do not last.

The interview was conducted outside the Foreign Relations Committee.
Marzouk: We don't mind if Ban Ki-moon talks with us. We have prepared for everything. We [would] provide complete security for Ban Ki-moon, and we [would] help the United Nations employees anywhere in the Gaza Strip, and we welcome any meeting with him. But this decision belongs to him. And for the Israelis, if they did not withdraw completely from the Gaza Strip, we can start resisting those troops.
Marzouk: It is not our objective to get the money, and it is very clear to us that should not go to Mahmoud Abbas. What we need and want is that this money goes to the people directly; go to the people whose houses were destroyed; to the universities; to schools. And they can do that themselves. Or they can send advisors, or somebody to monitor their money in Gaza Strip. We do not mind the 'how' or the way to send the money and give it to the people, but we will never accept any step like this to give the money to Mahmoud Abbas.
