EL CAIRO.- El Gobierno de Israel, junto al grupo armado palestino Hamas, acordaron hoy un alto el fuego tras ocho días de enfrentamientos, comunicó Mohamed Kamel Amr, ministro de Relaciones Exteriores de Egipto, cuyo país jugó un rol mediador clave en la crisis.

La tregua entra en vigor a las 19:00 GMT de este miércoles (16:00 horas de Chile). La secretaria de Estado norteamericana, Hillary Clinton, quien dio una conferencia de prensa conjunta con Amr en El Cairo, valoró el acuerdo y el fin de los ataques.

El Primer Ministro israelí, Benjamin Netanyahu, aceptó la recomendación del Presidente estadounidense Barack Obama de darle una oportunidad a la propuesta de Egipto para un cese del fuego que ponga fin a los enfrentamientos entre Hamas e Israel, anunció hoy la oficina del premier.

“No hay reemplazo para una paz justa y duradera”, realzó Hillary Clinton durante la conferencia de prensa.

Los esfuerzos para un fin duradero de las hostilidades serán continuados en forma conjunta, apuntó la jefa de la diplomacia estadounidense.

“Estados Unidos y Egipto trabajarán juntos para sostener el próximo paso”, aseveró, agregando que Washington cooperará con países de la región para “proveer seguridad a Israel y mejorar las condiciones de los habitantes de Gaza”.

Durante una conversación telefónica con el Mandatario estadounidense, Netanyahu “aceptó su recomendación de aprobar la iniciativa egipcia sobre una tregua”, se indicó este miércoles en el comunicado.

De esta manera, le otorgará una oportunidad al intento de estabilizar la situación, “antes de que sea necesario proceder de manera más dura”. Pero de todas maneras Netanyahu subrayó que Israel continuará dando todos los pasos necesarios para proteger a sus ciudadanos.

Horas antes del anuncio sobre la tregua, Netanyahu convocó a una reunión de nueve altos ministros de Gobierno para debatir la iniciativa.

El encuentro se produjo horas después del atentado contra un autobús en Tel Aviv, que dejó 17 heridos.

Se trató de la primera bomba en un autobús en Tel Aviv desde 2006. Hamas celebró el atentado al igual que ciertos sectores de Gaza. Ningún grupo se atribuyó por el momento el ataque.

La operación israelí “Pilar de Defensa” fue lanzada hace una semana, tras varios días de incesantes ataques con cohetes contra Israel.

Al momento del anuncio del cese del fuego, Israel había bombardeado unos 1.500 objetivos en la Franja, mientras que fueron lanzados más de 900 misiles por militantes de Hamas contra territorio israelí.

Otros 421 misiles fueron interceptados y destruidos por el sistema de defensa antimisilístico israelí “Cúpula de Hierro”.

Unos 154 palestinos murieron en los ataques israelíes, señalaron funcionarios del Ministerio de Salud en Gaza, más de la mitad de ellos civiles. En tanto, cuatro civiles israelíes y un soldado perdieron la vida por cohetes palestinos.

A more powerful reason to coach a debate team is given to us by Dr. Martin Luther King: ““Sooner or later all the people of the world will have to discover a way to live together in peace… If this is to be achieved, man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation…” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. – 1964 Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech

The International Baccalaureate [Kindle Edition]

The International Baccalaureate [Paperback]

The global search for high-quality education, embedded in high-performing education systems, has taken on mythical proportions, almost resembling the alchemists’ quest to turn common metals into gold.

It is my hope that the present day search for global education, equitable and providing equality of opportunity for all, shall not cease until the “gold” we seek, has been found.

I therefore dedicate this book to all the educators, researchers, parents and students the world over, who strive to achieve this elusive goal,high-quality education for all the citizens of the world.

In this endeavour, it is my belief that the International Baccalaureate merits a closer look, based on their more than 40 year history of delivering consistently excellent results.

I add that all of the reflections and views in this book are mine alone, unless otherwise noted, and can not be attributed to my employer or any other organization I am affiliated with, past or present. For any errors or oversights, I bear the complete responsibility.
