#Gaza : Day#3 rockets and visits “Updated”

Today is the third day of the on going mini-war taking place between Israel and Gaza , between the IDF and Hamas. For the second day sirens heard in Tel Aviv as the long range Fajr homemade missiles reached the city. Israeli officials say there are not casualties. El Kassam says that it fired rockets towards the Knesset yet sirens have not been heard in Jerusalem though. Israel continued its strikes in North Gaza. Bibi has recalled more reservists. Israeli channel 2 says that 75000 reservists will be drifted. I do not know if it is a psychological warfare or we are in front of a preparation for a land invasion.

Now @9:07 PM CLT the latest numbers form the ministry of health in Gaza are as follows :
  • 24 martyrs including 8 children , 3 women and 4 elderly
  • 270 injured including 101 child and 96 women
IDF sent SMS to Gazans today warning them from being close to Hamas locations.
The next phase is coming soon, stay away from Hamas
Sender IDF "@RanaGaza"
The problem there is not much space for the Gazans to escape or to hide at in Gaza. The Gaza strip is  smaller in Cairo for God sake !!

In early morning Egyptian PM Hisham Qandil has visited the sector in the protection of Egyptian special forces for 3 hours. Qandil went with the minister of health and Hossam Haddad , the president's aide for foreign affairs.
Some sources say that head of Egyptian intelligence Shahata did not go with Qandil. Well I have not seen in the visit's footage but logically the head of intelligence will not go visiting hospitals when he has a bigger role aka negotiations.

Qandil visited El Shafaa hospital where he witnessed the death of 3 injured including a child. Egyptian military jets are going to transfer medical aids to Gaza. Our PM who is so happy by our first civilian president says that Israel has to respect International treaties. Of course Qandil must understand that our civilian president is facing a very tough exam , if things go out of control or wrong , Egyptians will say that we do not need a civilian president.

Former presidential candidate and head of Strong Egypt party Abdel Moneim Abu El Fotouh is already in Gaza heading the Arab medical union's medical convoy.Abu El Fotouh is the head of the Arabic medical union. He addressed Gazans in a speech after Friday prayers. His action made him earn a lot of admiration back to Cairo.

Abu El Fotouh came with a group of Egyptian doctors.
It is worth to mention that several Egyptian parties above them Strong Egypt party will organize a medical envoy that head to Gaza on Sunday. The parties will hold a press conference tomorrow in Cairo. These parties and movements so far are : Strong Egypt Party, Constitution Party,The Popular socialist alliance Party, Popular Current and revolutionary socialists.
I believe it will be a strong message and will force Israel to stop its attack if president Morsi and PM Erdogan of Turkey headed to Gaza tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. If we are serious in finding a truce , this will be a strong message.
The Tunisian PM is going to head Gaza tomorrow by the way.There is unconfirmed news that Nobel Peace Prize winner Mohamed ElBaradei is going to visit Gaza sector as well. Dr. ElBaradei has been criticized from his late reaction regarding the aggression of Gaza.
There are protests today in Cairo and Alexandria as well other governorates from Port Said to Luxor mainly organized by Muslim brotherhood and Islamist powers from Salafists and Gama’a al Islamiyaa. It is worth to mention that the Salafists used the protests in Alexandria in order to market their views in the draft constitution !!!!!

    It is to my fellow Americans I speak. By birth the blessings of this country are bestowed upon us. Our Parents having died to ensure both those, and our God given rights. Let us not give lightly the thought of our future. We are endowed with a divine hope for the future. It is but tyranny alone that seeks to squander that hope and that future. We as Americans have never given in to tyranny, nor shall we start now. The abilities of the government come from the people which are governed. None shall give consent of persecution and discrimination, yet we find ourselves there with our current government. Dictating what had previously been enjoyed as choices, to the detriment of its citizenry. When lone oligarchs push through agendas denounced by its people, it seems fit for those now under the yoke of tyranny to rise up out of their binds and grab firm the right given us to replace or form new, a government that will not trample the path to despotism. Stand fast all my brethren who long to once more be free without the cursing of a bureacracy designed to shackle nor a judiciary with its wanton seizure of power. It is by the grace of our God and the muster of our own will, that a resolution of freedom will once again blanket this land for those who champion self determination over distant bodies of power whose only interest is maintaining their own influence. We must however, remain strong against the bitter winds ahead. They will try to turn us one against another, and they will march us to the fringes to silence us. Let us come together once again as Americans with a strong and united voice declaring liberty and self determination as our only vehicle of redress. It is not war we seek, nor hatred we want or have. Merely the opportunity afforded our ancestors to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness without undue burden from those with the consent to govern. Let us look back on this as a time, when those of two differing philosophies of how government should fullfil its duty, were able to allow the other its chance for itself to seek its destiny. Those seeking liberty finding themselves with the providence to enjoy it.
