Those of us who stand for Israel have prayed that the constant barrage of terrorist rockets the Israeli people have endured for nearly two weeks would end. And today, it seems a tentative peace may be imminent. The Jerusalem Post reports that the Israeli government has agreed to a ceasefire in the ongoing conflict with Hamas terrorists in Gaza:

The Israeli security cabinet voted to accept a ceasefire late Thursday as the Israeli south and Gaza remain inflamed.

The security cabinet unanimously agreed to a “mutual and unconditional” cessation of hostilities, according to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office…

However, the PMO added, “reality on the ground will determine the continuation of the campaign,” implying that they are keeping with the principle of “quiet would be met by quiet.”
