IDF delays entry into Northern Gaza

YNet is now reporting that the IDF has delayed its entry into Northern Gaza, in what the web site is calling giving a last chance to diplomacy. The IDF was to enter Northern Gaza - from which Kassams have been raining down for months - tonight.

The web site also reports that "any security escalation, such as the firing of Qassam rockets, or any other incident in which Israelis are hurt, may lead to a change in plans." I wonder when they plan to start measuring that. A Kassam landed in Sderot this morning.

Here's the real reason for the 'delay:'
The decision to postpone plans for a ground incursion into northern Gaza comes as the foreign ministers from the group of eight industrialized nations called on Israel to show restraint and expressed concerned over the latest escalations during a meeting in Moscow.

"We confirmed our support for the Quartet ... and called on the parties to take all the necessary steps to calm the situation," Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said, referring to the group of Middle East peace mediators — Russia, the United States, the United Nations, and the European Union.

"With restraint, perhaps we can get back to a place where there can be hope for a peaceful resolution," US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said during a news conference attended by the eight top diplomats.
In other words, the real reason for the 'delay' is that we have a government run by dhimmis. It doesn't know how to stand up for itself or for us.
