Israel and Hamas agree to three-day truce in Gaza ~ link ~
Israel and Palestinian militant groups in the Gaza Strip have agreed to a three-day humanitarian truce to begin Friday morning, and negotiators from both sides will travel to Cairo to discuss a longer-term solution.
The 72-hour break after more than three weeks of fighting was set to begin at 8 a.m. (0600 BST), according to a joint statement released by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

Palestinian and Israeli negotiators will meet in Cairo to discuss a longer-term truce after the United States and United Nations brokered a 72-hour humanitarian cease-fire in Gaza, a joint U.S.-U.N statement said early Friday.
The announcement came hours after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to destroy Hamas’ tunnel network “with or without a cease-fire” as the Palestinian death toll soared past 1,400 – surpassing the number killed in Israel’s last major invasion of Gaza five years ago. There was no immediate Israeli comment on the announcement.

Israel and Hamas have agreed to a 72-hour humanitarian ceasefire beginning this morning, it was revealed last night.
During this time there will be negotiations on a more durable truce in the 24-day-old Gaza war, the United States and United Nations said.

"This ceasefire is critical to giving innocent civilians a much-needed reprieve from violence," Kerry and Ban said in the statement, adding, "We urge all parties to act with restraint until this humanitarian ceasefire begins, and to fully abide by their commitments during the cease-fire."Kerry, however, said Israel will continue what he called defensive operations behind its lines against Palestinian tunnels.

Germany and Russia allegedly working on a secret 'Gas for Land' deal ~ link ~ Also see ~ link ~ There have been rumors about this and about Germany siding with Russia and the BRICS alliance. Could be ... but don't 'bet the farm on it' just yet ... time will tell. If this happens it will be a major blow to the Rothschild-led Global Banking Cartel and to the Zionist desire to have a general Middle East War!!! This may reflect the fact that by no means is everyone at senior EU governmental levels willing to go along with WWIII and an Human Life Extinction Level Event to please the demonic Global Banking Cartel families and the Zionists!!!

Thanks to the Independent, we may know the answer, and it is a doozy, because according to some it is nothing shy of a sequel to the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact: allegedly Germany and Russia have been working on a secret plan to broker a peaceful solution to end international tensions over the Ukraine, one which would negotiate to trade Crimea's sovereignty for guarantees on energy security and trade. The Independent reveals that the peace plan, being worked on by both Angela Merkel and Vladimir Putin, "hinges on two main ambitions: stabilising the borders of Ukraine and providing the financially troubled country with a strong economic boost, particularly a new energy agreement ensuring security of gas supplies."
The West's Reckless Rush Towards a War with Russia ~ link ~
For reasons that have no rational explanations at this time, the US and Europe have embarked on a concerted program to demonize Putin, ostracize Russia, and bring the world as close to a major conflict as it's been since the Cold War, a time hardly memorable to many in the current crop of our elected officials.
Within hours of the MH-17 plane crash, the United States pinned the blame on Russia generally, and Putin particularly. The anti-Putin propaganda (and if there were a stronger term I'd use it) has been relentless and almost comically over-the-top (see image above, and those below).
