Gazan Ceasefire Imminent? (Update: Clinton confirms)

So says Reuters.

There’s a little bit of a “groundhog day” expectancy over all this, but it seems hopeful. The BBC is being told much the same by Hamas officials, who are adding that the ceasefire will go into effect at 2100 local time.

Update: My twitter feed is full of tweets about a presser being held by Hillary Clinton and Ehypt’s Foreign Minister confirming the ceasefire. The Guardian’s live blog has the details. According to the BBC and AP, Natanyahu has accepted the terms too.

Most recently I was Editor in Chief of The Agonist from Feb 2012 to Feb 2013. My blogging began at Newshoggers and I’ve had the immense pleasure of working with some great writers there and around the web ever since, including at Crooks & Liars. I'm a late 40′s, Scottish ex-pat, now married to a wonderful Texan, with Honours in Philosophy from Univ. of Stirling, UK 1986. I worked most of life in business insurance industry (fire, accident, liability) including 12 years as a broker/underwriter/correspondent at Lloyd’s of London. Being from the other side of the pond, my political interests tend to focus on how US foreign policy affects the rest of the planet. Other interests include early and dark-ages British history, literature and cognitive philosophy/science.
