That's really fine news, Joe. If a ground war can be avoided, maybe Hamas will get discouraged and peace can be restored sooner to the region.

I pray this will happen, in spite of Hamas having some 30,000 rockets of varying accuracy, according to reports.

Reporting on yesterday's meeting of the U. N. Security Council:
Gilad Erdan, Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, who spoke after Mr. Maliki, rejected any attempt to portray the actions of Israel and Hamas as moral equivalents. “Israel uses missiles to protect its children,” Mr. Erdan said. “Hamas uses children to protect its missiles.”
