Reports of an imminent ceasefire proved to have been overly optimistic Tuesday night, as Hillary Clinton arrived in Israel. Two more Israelis were killed on a day of heavy rocket fire that reached as far north as Rishon Lezion, with Jerusalem also targeted. Late into Tuesday night, Israel was hitting Hamas installations and other terror targets throughout Gaza.

Jordan’s King Abdullah II phoned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this evening to discuss the conflict with Gaza, according to the Jordanian news agency Petra.

According to the report, Abdullah warned Netanyahu of the consequences of a further deterioration, saying a worsening of the fighting could threaten the security and the stability of entire region.

Roughly a third of Jordanians are of Palestinian descent.


  1. IT IS RIDICULOUS TO make do with targeted attacks, containment, and low-intensity conflict until peace is brought about by negotiations with the terrorists. We tried that in Judea and Samaria prior to Operation Defensive Shield, practicing restraint and waiting for a whole year while an unprecedented wave of terrorism engulfed the country .rabbi dr. bernhard rosenberg
