Al Haq accused Israel of "indiscriminate attacks." Nothing deters Israeli lawlessness. World community pressure is absent. Israel has carte blanche to kill.

Al Mezan accused Israel of deliberately targeting civilians. Israel committed "grave breaches of international law."

"Al Mezan condemns with the strongest terms the deliberate targeting of houses and other civilians objects in Gaza." 

"These violations, along with other disproportionate attacks and extra-judicial executions, may amount to acts of war crimes and must be investigated and punished without delay." 

"Attacks on homes and the murder of whole families call for immediate international intervention to stop IOF's aggression and provide effective protection for civilians in Gaza."

"Al Mezan highlights that the prevalent culture of impunity, which is the result of decades of failure to bring any perpetrators of war crimes to account, has encouraged such crimes to occur, and, as feared, it is children, women, and the elderly who are bearing the brunt of it."

On November 19, Russia Today said "Israel gives Hamas 36-hour ultimatum before starting major offensive." Thousands of troops, tanks, and heavy armor are positioned on Gaza's border. Invasion could happen any time.

Conflict shows no signs of abating. Mossad-connected DEBKAfile (DF) said Israeli officials are weighing a possible ground operation "under strong Obama pressure" to hold off.

Truce talks in Cairo are ongoing. Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi hopes to broker peace. Progress reports are mixed. Hamas said they failed. Egypt said they continue.

DF said Morsi "failed in his task (and) made matters worse." He bought time for Hamas. Israel sent senior military and intelligence officials to Cairo. "Hamas turned down all the truce proposals on the table."

DF didn't say they're entirely one-sided. Israel demands surrender. It also wants unilateral Gazan disarmament. 

Hamas wants Gaza's lawless siege lifted. It also wants international community guarantees to stop Israeli assassinations and other attacks. Israel categorically won't agree.

A ground operation looks likely. Israel National News headlined "Intelligence Expert: Ground Move Required," saying:

Former deputy Shin Bet intelligence head Doron Weiss said there's no reason to fear international pressure. He called it "groundless."

"There is no reason why the IDF cannot carry out a limited operation in Gaza and leave in time," he said. Consensus seems building toward this conclusion or something similar.
