Israel Officially Ends Hanukka Slaughter
JERUSALEM (CNN) -- Israel has declared a unilateral cease-fire in the fighting in Gaza beginning at 2 a.m. Sunday (7 p.m. ET Saturday), Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said.
"Hamas has been dealt a very serious blow," Olmert said. "We can say that the conditions have been brought about that enable us to say that the aims that we laid down for the operation have been completely achieved."
P.S. Olmert's security cabinet assured him that Israeli citizens had a wonderful Hanukka, would relish the memories and would accept going back to the normal low-intensity genocide program, with a sprinkling of targetted assassinations, for some time.
