Waiting for the hudna to be officially declared dead

As Ehud K. Olmert continues to turn the other cheek to have it slapped again by the 'Palestinians,' it seems that we are now waiting for the hudna to be officially declared dead. Yesterday, five Kassam rockets fell on the Negev, and IDF soldiers shot and killed an armed 'Palestinian' who approached the Gaza border fence. This morning, two more Kassams fell on the Negev, causing damage but no injuries:
Two Qassam rockets fired from the Gaza Strip hit the western Negev early Thursday morning despite the Gaza cease-fire declared last month.

One of the rockets damaged property in a local kibbutz but caused no injuries.

The second rocket hit an open area, causing no damage or injuries.

Since the cease-fire took hold November 26, Palestinian militants have fired more than 20 rockets at Israel, according to the Israel Defense Forces' count, causing no casualties.

IDF soldiers killed a Palestinian gunman near the Gaza Strip boundary on Wednesday, witnesses and military officials said, the first such death since the truce was declared.

Medical officials identified the man, who was shot dead opposite the boundary fence from the Israeli town of Nahal Oz, as a member of Palestinian Authority Chairman's Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah faction.

"He approached the fence, armed with a rifle and grenades, so our troops opened fire," an IDF spokesman said, adding that the soldiers in question were outside Gaza.

Palestinian security officials, however, said the militant, 22, was in no-man's land along the fence when he was killed.


Also Wednesday evening, off the coast of Gaza's border with Egypt - an area subject to an Israeli naval blockade - an Israel naval vessel opened fire at a Palestinian boat, setting it on fire. Two of the men on board were wounded, according to Palestinian emergency services. Their identity was not immediately known.

The army confirmed that its a navy patrol boat had opened fire on the vessel.
Ehud Olmert will continue to turn the other cheek and fiddle, along with his friends Amir Comrade Peretz and Tzipi Livni, at least until the 'Palestinians' hit him someplace else. And Israel will continue to burn....
