And yet all the media in the US talks about are Hamas rockets. I'd like to see ONE Hamas rocket with that sort of power. Oh.. wait.. they don't exist. Most of them don't even have explosives in them.
Sorry.. I'm just really pissed off right now. Sick to my stomach actually that our wonderful congress and senate unilaterally voted in support of Israel. Amazing how quickly they can all come together when it concerns Israel.. but if its something for America... like unemployment insurance or maybe securing our borders.. nope.. no can do. Time to take a month off.

Wow, I didn't realize there were missile launchers in almost every building in Gaza. Israel says they are targeting known missile launch sites. Yeah right, I bet they just try to hit the places where the most people are effected.
Israel Creates ‘No Man’s Land’ in Gaza, Shrinking Strip by 40 Percent
To protect itself from Hamas rockets and tunnels, Israel is forcing tens of thousands of people out of their homes, turning their old neighborhoods into a no-man’s land.
BEIT HANOUN, Gaza — This narrow strip of land that used to be called “the Gaza Strip,” already one of the more densely populated places on Earth, is growing dramatically smaller. The Israeli military, relentlessly and methodically, is driving people out of the 3-kilometer (1.8 mile) buffer zone it says it needs to protect against Hamas rockets and tunnels. According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the buffer zone eats up about 44 percent of Gaza’s territory.
...Israel...told tens of thousands of Palestinians to flee so its air force, artillery and tanks could create this uninhabitable no-man’s land of half-standing, burned-out buildings, broken concrete and twisted metal.
