Egyptian-brokered Hamas-Israel Ceasefire!

Ceasefire brokered by Egyptians-bless the Arab Spring and the new regime that seems to be able to produce a stop in the killing of Palestinian children, this time! Happy Thanksgiving!

Dear Neighbors:

Happy Thanksgiving early!  Four years ago, on my husband's birthday, Dec 27, 2008, Israel starting bombing Gaza, and continued for 21 days, killing over 326 Palestinian children, accepting their deaths as "collateral damage" in their need for security.  When Israel shot and killed a 13 year old boy on Nov 8, 2012 followed by  a drone attack to assasinate a Hamas military leader who had been in negotiations with the Israelis on a cease fire, I feared that the same slaughter would happen and no one, including the US Government could stop it. I am happy to report:
