UN calling for a cease-fire in Gaza

Oh please. We're getting pretty sick of nations across the globe, or organizations like the UN and Red Cross demanding that Israel halt their attacks in Gaza. But that is exactly what the UN is doing, as if their demand has any binding nature:

The U.N. Security Council resolution was approved Thursday night by a 14-0 vote, with the United States abstaining. The resolution "stresses the urgency of and calls for an immediate, durable and fully respected cease-fire, leading to the full withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza."

Israel and Hamas were not parties to the council vote and it is now up to them to stop the fighting. But a Hamas spokesman said the Islamic militant group "is not interested" in the cease-fire because it was not consulted and the resolution did not meet its minimum demands.

Notice the US abstained? I'll bet readers that we abstained because we A) Recognize Israel's right to defend itself, and B) Know that if they take out Hamas, it's one terror group we won't have to worry about. But that cease-fire agreement doesn't mean squat. http://www.alertnet.org/thenews/newsdesk/L9116659.htm">Ehud Olmert has sounded off on their idiotic agreement:

Israel rejected a U.N. resolution calling for a ceasefire in Gaza on Friday and, as jets and tanks again pounded the Palestinian enclave, announced no decision on whether to step up its two-week-old war on Hamas guerrillas.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert dismissed Thursday's binding Security Council resolution demanding an "immediate and durable" ceasefire as "unworkable".

Diplomats sounded the alarm that Egyptian-brokered truce talks launched this week might also be foundering. ...

Olmert said earlier: "The firing of rockets this morning only goes to show that the U.N. decision is unworkable and will not be adhered to by the murderous Palestinian organisations."

Personally speaking those outside of this conflict need to sit down and shut up. Let Israel do what it has to do to destroy Hamas. Now back on Wednesday we touched on the Israeli invasion of Gaza, and we said then that we support them 100%. Some e-mailers jumped on the anti-Israeli bandwagon skrieking that Israel was basically committing "genocide."

No, they're not. Hamas isn't a race. It's a bloody terrorist group. The Israelis aren't killing Palestinians on purpose. They've gone to great lengths to warn civilians to get out of the way before they strike. We know that Hamas hides behind civilians, and fires it's rockets from civilian centers. If Hamas keps civilians around, it's not Israel's fault. They've done what they could to limit the casualties. If e-mailers would like those casualties to go down, we suggest they levy their criticism where it belongs -- on Hamas. they started this. Israel is fed up with them, and they're going to finish it.
