Maybe you're having popcorn and watching a rental or a download.
Suddenly, some guy in a suit walks into your house, just opens up the door and walks in. He tells you you have to leave. You give him a look like he's crazy because, well, he obviously is and you tell him to GTFO of your house.....
......So your Wife, she loses it. She goes all kinds of bonkers and starts throwing things at the Door of the house... the mailbox, rocks through the windows, her shoes... and so a guy steps out onto the stoop and shoots her in the head.

It's obvious that Israel was anxious to take such aggressive, brutal action before Gingiss Khan Bush is out of office. Unlike his predecessor, Obama will not pass out blessings to Israel for such atrocious and barbaric actions.

Israel's foreign minister expresses Tel Aviv's grave concern over "a wave of anti-Semitism" sparked by the Israeli offensive in Gaza.
In a statement released by her office on Monday, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni expressed "Israel's concern about the current wave of anti-Semitic attacks in various parts of the world."
Israel's 17-day-old offensive in the Gaza Strip has so far claimed the lives of at least 919 Palestinians, while some 4,100 others have been wounded. UN figures show that the majority of casualties and injuries are civilian. The operation has sparked widespread outrage around the globe, with many people and leaders condemning the Israeli acts and urging for an immediate halt in bombardment of the densely-populated strip.
Narcissism and delusional behaviour. When a nation embarks on a war the authorities know they are doing a terrible thing even if they have propagandised the masses with war war. Israel is different, even the leadership is psychopathic.

Amira Hass / Gazans trapped in no man's land between fire, farmlands
By Amira Hass
A number of Palestinians - it is not clear how many - are trapped in small enclaves surrounded by Israel Defense Forces positions in the Gaza Strip's peripheral farming areas. The soldiers shoot at anyone who tries to leave the enclaves, they said.
These people didn't manage to flee, or decided to stay home when the IDF took over the area. But they never imagined that they would be cut off from their relatives and the nearby towns and villages for so long.
Fragmented reports from such enclaves indicate that the beleaguered Palestinians are suffering from an increasing shortage of water, medicines and food. At least in one enclave, east of Jabalya, there is a cancer patient whose medication has run out, Haaretz has learned. Attempts to evacuate diabetics and elderly people from another enclave have failed. IDF troops surrounding the enclaves shoot at anyone who tries to leave.
Some people are completely cut off and have lost all contact with other enclaves and with their relatives a few kilometers away. In Siafa, in north Beit Lahia for example, relatives and neighbors have no way of knowing if a woman and her son, who live in one of the area's besieged houses, are alive or dead. At their request Haaretz asked HaMoked: Center for the Defence of the Individual and other Israeli human rights organizations for help.
HaMoked has made contact with some of the besieged people and has even tried to organize, in coordination with the IDF, food delivery to some 120 people trapped in Siafa.
A small part of the equipment, medications and food was delivered on Sunday but delivery was cut short due to the end of the lull in Israeli fire.
The IDF insisted that the trapped people's relatives deliver the supplies with two donkey carts. In a bid to speed up delivery, the family arranged with the IDF to bring another cart, led by a horse. But when it approached the truck, soldiers fired at the horse, killing it, they said.
Some 20 al-Aidi family members, including two elderly women and four children who were wounded by an IDF shell, were evacuated from their home over the weekend - a week after being hit. The Red Cross and Physicians for Human Rights tried to evacuate them to hospital the day after they were wounded - but in vain.
When the rescue efforts were finally coordinated, a week later, the ambulances could not reach their homes, located southeast of Gaza City, which were caught between IDF outposts and firing targets, and they had to walk about two kilometers.

A guy gets on a subway and sits down. A group comes down the aisle, they all glare at him, threaten him, and one pulls a knife and attacks.
The guy reaches into his jacket, pulls out a Colt Model 1911 .45 ACP, and kills the SOB that attacked him.
The others cry and bemoan the fact that this guy used unfair advantage, unfair weapons, and now they are the victims.
This same crap has been going on for years and years.
You don't want to get yourself, and possibly your countrymen killed, don't attack!
