Numbers 1 and 2 were clearly violated before the rockets started back up again.
Sorry I had to give ya a smackdown, but you digest too much Israeli propaganda to know which end is up anymore.
You might want to try and get your facts from unbiased sources.
I am not digesting israeli propaganda at all....i'm making my opinions based on historical fact.
Lets take a closer look at the conflict shall way?
1948 state of Israel proclaimed leading to an invasion by Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq who oppose the creation of a jewish state, this comes several years after the british who gained control of palestine following world war 1 reccommended a homeland for the jewish people and agreed by the UN
1967 the six day war, israel launches a pre-emptive strike to gain control of the west bank, gaza and golan heights, British and American forces gain control of the sinai peninsula
1973 Egypt and Syria launch a surprise attack on Israel leading America to arrange a ceasefire
1978 Egypt and Israel sign the camp David accord and formal treaty begins the following year
1981 Egyptian president is assassinated by islamic militants
1986 Jordans king Hussein severs ties with the palestinian liberation organization after frustration with its failure to comply with UN resolutions
1988 Arafat accepts Israels right to exist
1995 Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin assassinated
2004 Ceasefire begins
You only have to look at the chronology Tripod to understand that initially where there was conflict there has been peace made.....Egypt ended 30 years of war at Camp David and then got killed by militants for doing so.
Jordan grew tired of the conflict and eventually lost patience with the palestinian government.
The Palestinian government under Arafat eventually conceded and accepted Israels right to exist.
Islamic militants however are still going strong, they do not want peace, they want their land (chiefly Jerusalem).
Nobody has a right to land unquestionably and its a fact that land is a profit of war....Jerusalem belongs to Israel nowadays and peace wont come until islamic militants are forced to accept that fact or destroyed.
