Israel pleads with world to let it start Gaza invasion again, having failed to properly notify Guinness world of records, asking for forgiveness from the big global powers, whilst it irons out the mistakes.
Palestinian hopes were dashed today when it appeared that the Israeli government was to ask the UN to intervene in the crisis. Instead the government said to the UN that a terrible error and occurred, with an intern having failed to fill out the application to have the air strikes in the last few weeks registered for the Guinness world record for war casualties.
Palestinian officials said they were not sure that those in the Gaza Strip had enough appetite to start again, and if this was some sick joke, but Israelis said this was non negotiable, as it was hugely important for the moral of the country to have the war and casualties recognised.
Meanwhile officials from Guinness world of records, have agreed to fast track the application but due to the summer backlog with other conflicts attempting to be registered, it could be a few weeks until it is processed.
World wide opinion has been torn at this latest twist. Peace activist on both sides, have asked if the world has gone mad but hope that the temporary halt in bombings will offer time for a permanent solution to be found.
Right wing politicians in Israel hope that sense will prevail and that people global opinion will over time understand that failing to achieve a certificate from the prestigious organisation would leave a terrible taste and be disrespectful to victims on both sides.
Pressure is being put on the Guinness World of Records from activists in London for it change it's outdated criteria which still allows for war to be category.
