Hamas calls for national dialogue

Gaza toll hits 500 as Israeli assault worsens Frantic families flee as Israeli soldiers surround Gaza City
GAZA (AlArabiya.net, Agencies)
The death toll of Palestinians killed in Israel's nine-day assault on the Gaza Strip hit 500 with thousands injured as Israeli troops advanced in their ground invasion supported by military helicopters that sporadically dropped bombs and caused mass panic as frantic families fled by car or on foot.Since the ground invasion began at least 40 Palestinians have been killed and one Israeli soldier killed with some 35 injured, according to both Palestinian and Israeli officials.Israel's assault worsened as world outrage continued, the U.N. Security Council failed to agree on a solution, the Islamist group Hamas called for national dialogue and Israel's President Shimon Perez rejected calls for a ceasefire.Israel launched a ground invasion late on Saturday, pouring tanks and troops into the Hamas-controlled territory after a week of air strikes, prompting many residents to flee their homes.

Streets remained deserted in Gaza City, capital of the battered and densely populated Palestinian territory, as it was encircled by Israeli forces cutting off the main access roads. Stores were shuttered and long queues formed outside the few open bakeries, with those residents who decided to stay stocking up on goods for fear of a protracted conflict. The first night of Israel's ground invasion of Gaza that has been blasted with explosives from both air and sea was sleepless for most of the city's population as the sounds of war shattered the chilly night air. Artillery shells rained down along the border, tanks firing in support of advancing infantry units in the northern Gaza Strip, and Hamas retaliated with mortar rounds and by setting off roadside bombs.

" "We are shaking like our children...Even before this offensive, it was the blockade that was killing us. This is intolerable. "
Gaza resident
Residents who have bore the brunt of the assault decried their situation: "My children are panicked because of the intensity of the bombardments that went on all the night," Samir Haji, 46, told AFP. The morning brought only more worry for many in Haji's neighborhood south of Gaza City as tanks rumbled into the area accompanied by Israeli infantry. Dozens of tanks and heavy bulldozers rolled into the area near the former Jewish settlement of Netzarim, with air support from Apache helicopter gunships. "We are shaking like our children," said Yehia Anis Hussein. "Even before this offensive, it was the blockade that was killing us. This is intolerable." Dozens of frantic families fled the area in cars. Some were also seen walking down roads, heading south and away from the advancing troops.

As troops clashed with Hamas forces on the ground, another battle raged on the airwaves, with Israel breaking into Hamas television and radio broadcasts. "Hamas leadership, your time is finished," said one message posted on Al-Aqsa television. Earlier the Islamist group's radio service was interrupted by a male voice in Hebrew-accented Arabic: "Hamas leaders are hiding in the tunnels and are leaving you on the frontline of Israel's defense forces." "Hamas leaders are lying to you and they are hiding in hospitals," he said. "Launching rockets puts civilians in danger."
National dialogue

Meanwhile, Hamas said it was ready for an unconditional national dialogue."Hamas is calling for a national meeting to counter the aggression," Mohammed Nazzal, a member of the group's politburo, told Al Arabiya television. "We are ready to hold a meeting anywhere agreed upon without any conditions... The sole theme: how to counter the aggression because there is no time to talk about any other issue," Nazzal said. "This is not the time to discuss differences," he told the news channel.

Hamas broke ranks with president Mahmoud Abbas's secular Fatah party in June 2007, staging a coup against the Palestinian Authority and taking control of the impoverished enclave after more than a week of deadly infighting. Efforts to reconcile the two Palestinian factions have so far foundered. Watch the Video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZaG96pnnEQ

John Travolta 'Heartbroken' Over Son's Death

John Travolta and Kelly PrestonA day after the death of his son, Jett, John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston remain in shock, a friend of the family tells PEOPLE. "He never dreamed of this – their relationship was so close,” says family attorney Mike Ossi, who is in the Bahamas with the actor.

"He always said 'I'm happy as long as my kids are happy.' He is heartbroken … To bury your son is the worst thing you can ever do." According to Ossi, 16-year-old Jett was discovered by a nanny on Friday morning around 10 a.m. After the nanny called 911, John Travolta tried in vain to resuscitate his son. "He didn't want anything to happen to that boy, and he kept on trying to revive him," said Ossi. "He did mouth-to-mouth until they had to physically remove John to take Jett to the Hospital.
" The teen, who is the only son of Travolta, 54, and Preston, 46, has a history of having seizures. Police spokeswoman Loretta Mackey told the Associated Press that Jett hit his head in a bathtub Friday morning and was declared dead at Rand Memorial Hospital. According to Ossi, around 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 1, John said goodnight to his son, who was tired from a long day spent on the water with his family. Jett went to his room with his nanny.
"He always had a nanny by his side because he had a history of seizures," says Ossi. "John took extra precautions. [Jett] was never alone." Mike McDermott, John's corporate counsel, adds, "John did everything in his power to revive [his son.] John and Jett had a very strong relationship. Words cannot explain how close they were. This will take a lot of time. His life will never be the same again."
Mr. Travolta spent a tremendous amount of time with his son, Jett. He never left him at home. He always brought him with him. And once you saw John Travolta, you saw his son, Jett. They were very close, very affectionate. Lots of love, you see at all times," Wilchcomb said.
The family was on the island this weekend for a gathering of 60 family and friends who were arriving throughout the day as the tragedy unfolded, Wilchcomb said.
In 1994, Travolta told People magazine that he loved fatherhood.
"I can't imagine what life would be like without Jett," he said. "After he was born and cleaned up, I held him for hours while Kelly slept. When they came to take him away for various tests, I said, 'No, you can't see him today. You'll have to do it another day.' I went a little nutsy." Jett Travolta had a developmental disability that his parents, John Travolta and Kelly Preston, have linked to Kawasaki disease, an inflammatory disorder of the artery walls that most commonly occurs in young children and can lead to heart disease.
