I was somewhat discombobulated and somewhat inspired by that amazing Guardian's pair of headlines.
Little did I know. The above was child's play compared to this. And I just have to quote from this post:
As one commentator suggested, Greenwood’s argument goes something like this.Mee too ees speechless...
- Israel accepted the ceasefire and held its fire for six hours, hoping Hamas would do the same.
- Hamas ignored the ceasefire and continued firing dozens of rockets at Israeli towns.
- Israel finally retaliated against Hamas rocket attacks which showed no signs of winding down.
- Ergo, Israel violated the ceasefire.
