Israel’s security cabinet met last night and decided that the twin offensives in the Gaza Strip and Lebanon would continue with no time limit, a senior government official said. The US, backed by Britain, has blocked ceasefire efforts raised at the UN Security Council, G8 summit and European foreign ministers’ meeting.
‘It’s clear the Americans have given the Israelis the green light,’ a senior European official said. ‘They will be allowed to go on longer, perhaps for another week.”
What a bunch of pricks.
