That's the headline from here, not mine.

www.haaretz.com...



A barrage of at least 35 rockets was fired from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel on Wednesday evening. There were no casualties.

In response, the IDF fired shells into the Gaza Strip, saying two "terrorist infrastructures" were targeted.


I'm staying agnostic about this, but am seeing an increasing amount of Twitter traffic about this, including the following.

Ali Hashem علي هاشم ‏@alihashem_tv 5m
The Islamic Jihad calls its operation today "Silence breaker" launching over 100 missiles till the moment #GAZA

Israel News Feed ‏@IsraelHatzolah 14s
Islamic Jihad: "this was only the beginning much more to come"

It seems to be escalating.

Yah, them damn Gaza prisoners, can't they just accept their lot and comply with their life sentence?

I'm guessing those s*** and sugar bottle rockets made a lot of noise but failed to actually penetrate Israeli airspace.

Yes because firing rockets is going to help their cause.

Especially rockets imported from Iran that are made in Syria.

Well, that was downright rude!

I don't imagine the IDF will laugh and see humor in all this. Naww... I think they'll even take it a little personal. What was this supposed to accomplish aside from basically ordering up a retaliatory strike from Israel?

Details boy's ...look at the details....

It's not the rocket's..it's where they came from that count's and i don't mean where they were fired from, i mean who sold them to the Palestinians..and we all know where the finger of jerusalem will point.

If you throw either rock or rockets at a hornets nest you will get stung.

Well if they had something to fight with besides their urine and media attention they would surely use it. But their "homeland" is a prison after all…

and oppression breeds rebellion.

You'd think that Israel learned that from the last World War. Their history includes chapters like the Warsaw Ghetto…

As I said in the OP I'm going to stay agnostic in the thread about who started this and who drew first blood. And who is right or wrong.

My bigger concern is where it might lead.

You'd think if the Palestinians had some sense, then they'd stop launching missiles and go for the sympathy vote.

You can't be both victim and aggressor, but it's what's they want and it's not working.

Don't get me wrong I have no dog in this fight, I'm just saying if you try picking a fight with someone who has bigger arms then you do don't go crying when you get hit back.

i see where they raided the ship in international, or at least not in Israeli waters
headed for gaza?
you can't get there from there

i love the way mulims alway provide a perfectly timed attack just when it justifies what ever aggression Israel has planned
and israel always knows in advance they are going to do it....
like the dancing israelis at 911...

who knew iran had given osama those planes to fly into those buildings?

But they do...They throw the rock and hide their hand. Then when Israel takes reprisals..they're on the TV crying " Look, look what these dogs are doing to our homes....then send their 5 year old to throw rock's..

Always condemnation of the missiles fired, but never a word about why the missiles are being fired in the first place.
