Islamic Jihad says Israel warns against Gaza trip

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Members of Iranian-backed Islamic Jihad say Israel has warned the militant group’s two top leaders against trying to enter the Gaza Strip this week.

The pair had planned to visit Friday, along with the leader-in-exile of Hamas, Islamic Jihad’s sister group.

Israel and Gaza’s ruling Hamas have been holding indirect talks, through Egypt, following an Israeli offensive on militant targets in Gaza last month.

Two Islamic Jihad members said today that Egypt had relayed warnings that Israel would consider the Gaza truce over if the group’s leaders enter Gaza. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not allowed to discuss the issue with the media.

Israel’s Defense Ministry had no immediate comment.

I'm glad to see some country still has some guts and will draw a line in the sand. Israel. please do not ask this Presiident for any help. I'm sure he will stab you in the back, and lead from behind. This strategy has worked so well in the Arab world that now we have no idea who is in charge and if we do we support these despots. Obama may say we will stand by Isarel, but do not hold your breath.
