Israel PM Wants his Mommy

Three people were injured today by the Qassam rockets that are fired daily from Gaza into neighboring areas of Israel. At the same time, residents of the areas being bombed gathered near the Sufa Gaza-Israel crossing to protest the shipments of food Gaza is receiving from the Israeli government. They insist the food shipments should stop as long as rocket fire continues. Protesters blocked the road to keep trucks full of food from passing and held signs that said, "DO NOT FEED TERROR."

In regards to that mythical, ever-elusive truce, Israel's Haaretz news says this:
The political-security cabinet was due to vote Sunday on whether to agree to an Egyptian-mediated cease-fire with Hamas in Gaza, but Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Defense Minister Ehud Barak canceled the meeting, citing the "vagueness" of Hamas' position. The cabinet meeting will be postponed until the following Sunday.

It's like when you have a test at school so you tell your mom you're sick and you don't want to go.
