International call for Gaza truce (while US cheers on the slaughter)

Foreign ministers from the European Union and the Middle East Quartet have called for a ceasefire in Gaza.

France’s Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said Israel and Hamas should end hostilities permanently, after EU ministers met in Paris.

Meanwhile a UN spokeswoman quoted officials from the quartet as calling for an immediate truce.

Palestinian officials say more than 360 people have been killed in Israeli military strikes since Saturday.

Four Israelis have also been killed, by rockets fired into Israel by Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip.
