1:01pm This is interesting...

The Prime Minister's office told JewishPress.com that Israel has no negotiators in Cairo, and haven't had any there since the ceasefire was broken.

They also said that Israel is not involved in any ceasefire talks in Cairo or anywhere else.

And for good measure added, "Israel will not negotiate under fire".

Hmmmm.

1:10am Nature abhors a vacuum.

If no one else is going to take the lead in fighting Islamic terrorism, then some of the more unlikely players are going to step up to bat.

Egypt and United Arab Emirates have attacked Libyan Dawn terrorists twice this past week...

Stranger things have happened.

12:35am After consulting with the IDF, the Kiryat Shmona municipal council has decided against opening public bomb shelters and requesting for the public to stay in shelters.

******************************************************************************************************** 
12:07pm Egypt has put forward a proposal for a 1 month ceasefire, to begin at 7am on Tuesday. Reportedly, Hamas has embraced the plan, and they are waiting for Netanyahu to respond.

There has been no comment fro Jerusalem on this story.

During the ceasefire, Israel and Hamas would continue to negotiate.

1 month from now, when the ceasefire would end (presuming that Hamas doesn't break the ceasefire earlier) is Rosh Hashana.
