Talk of ceasefire, but fighting goes on after 9 days of ‘Protective Edge’

The end of another bloody, bitter day of Hamas rockets at Israel, and Israeli strikes at Hamas targets in Gaza. There’s a five-hour humanitarian time-out set for Thursday morning, and Israel, the PA, Hamas and others have teams in or heading to Cairo for ceasefire talks… but there’s no sense at all that Israel’s demands for longterm calm, and Hamas’s ceasefire terms, are reconcilable. For now, the hostilities continue.
