U.S. Presses Israel on Gaza Cease-Fire

The US continues to forget that Israel is a sovereign nation and has the unconditional right to defend herself. Via U.S. Presses Israel on Gaza Cease-Fire:

Pressure is picking up on Israel to reach a cease-fire deal with Hamas in Gaza ahead of U.S. President George W. Bush's planned visit to Jerusalem in two weeks, Israeli defense officials said Sunday. Head of the IDF Southern Command Maj.-Gen. Yoav Galant recently expressed fierce opposition to a cease-fire with Hamas, warning it would be used by the terrorist organization to rebuild its damaged infrastructure and to increase its arms smuggling under the Philadelphi Corridor from Sinai.
