Hamas requested ceasefire, ignored by cabinet

The Security Cabinet met for five hours Sunday to discuss the escalation between Israel and Gaza. The ministers reported that Hamas twice sought a ceasefire, but it was not discussed. The meeting concluded with a decision to put security above all other considerations, which is meant to send a message to Hamas that the fighting may continue even at the expense of ruining upcoming events such as Independence Day and the Eurovision song contest to be held in Tel Aviv next week.
