Front Page: A Chance For Peace in Gaza

  • A three-hour cease-fire in Gaza left hope that peace between Hamas and Israel can be reached, but there is no guarantee. — CBS on YouTube
  • The Red Cross reports it found at least 15 bodies and several children, who were emaciated but alive, in a row of shattered houses in the Gaza Strip. Officials accused the Israeli military of preventing ambulances from reaching the bombed-out site for four days. — Washington Post
  • President-elect Barack Obama plans to urge Congress to move quickly on his economic aid package (expected to cost $800 billion) today, warning that failure to do so would have devastating long-term effects for the nation. — CNN
  • The Army mistakenly sent letters addressed "Dear John Doe" to 7,000 family members of soldiers who died in Iraq and Afghanistan, forcing a formal apology from the Army's top general. The letters contained information about private organizations that assist grieving families, but a printing error by a contractor left the letters without specific names and addresses. — Washington Post
  • Russia's state-controlled gas monopoly said it would restore supplies to Europe through Ukraine, which it cut off after a dispute between Moscow and Kiev, as soon as international monitors are implemented. — Reuters

I think the US should condemn the Isreali couter-attacks just as soon as the rest of the world condemns the Hamas attacks.

I hope France and Egypt can reach a real cease-fire, not a three hour joke. It makes me so sad to see how a big part of the world is doing nothing while people are dying. The United States Government should wake up and condemn the Israeli attacks.

Baby steps--but it isn't as if the cease-fires have ever worked before.
