Ok, now this is just someone trying to start some sh*t. Certain groups are going to exploit this to their advantage, and sit back and watch the fireworks, then reap the spoils of war. I hope the governments are keeping this in mind, if they are not behind it to begin with.

I am a firm believer in Israel's ability to take care of themselves. I also do not mind them being called rogue either. Someone is exploiting the fact that Israel is a little jumpy right now and in no mood for games, it will not take much to set them off if stuff starts landing on their doorstep.

Well according to this news article about this situation, the IDF struck back already.


The IDF responded by attacking the terrorist cell which was behind the rocket fire. The IDF Spokesperson's Unit said there was confirmation the target was hit. Three Palestinians were lighly injured.

Let's hope this is where it ends.... somehow though I just get this twinge on the back of my neck. I hope I'm wrong.

I wouldn't call them some of the dumbest SOBs on Earth, If I was living in an extra large concentration camp, I would probably be throwing fire crackers over the fence aswell.

"Ok Hamas Rocket Fire into Israel "

Hamas ?, says who?..the article indicates "A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip", with a headline of "militants fire rockets".. were suspects, er "militants" arrested?.. any evidence?.. or is it just always the 'official' boogie-mans fault?

"Officials said one house in the city was extensively damaged when it was hit by a Grad rocket,".. yeah well un-named so called "officials" from Israel take after their US brethren and usually spew "official" #e.

This "news" reeks of propaganda.. my guess is that, yes.. a house in Israel was damaged by something, probably even something fired from Gaza. In the spirit of not letting a crisis go to waste, un-named "officials" used it as an excuse to hype the "Grad" as a new "Scud"... plus a "new" missile soon after evil Iran dared park 2 boats in Syria raises all kinds of "questions" and threat assumptions... fear fear fear!!!

Gazans & Hamas probably think GOP & DNC voters are dumbass TPTB / NWO supporters responsible for more dead people & misery than any so called "terrorists" could hope for.

I see them as some of the most desperate people on Earth.. desperate people do desperate things.

I think this is actually deliberate provocation from Hamas, to get the Isreaalis to fire on the visiting ships.
They would like nothing better than to see the Iranis and isrealis involved directly against each other.
The ploy obviously did not fool isreal who merely struck the source of the incomming fires.
I look to see more of this calculated behavior on Hamas part to get the big boyss into a scrap.
Unfortunately this would be the end of palestine if all out war ensuers as they wish to see it.
I dont think for one minute Isreal will back down from a confrontation with these ships given an incident which they can point to as real provocation.
The Irani navy ships may have to escort some aid floatilla to get sunk, but they will get it if they do try.....
Surely Iran doesnt expect these ships home if they attempt same.

No one died in this rocket attack? Oh, my heart bleeds.... *for the civilians paying for the aftermath/ie: revenge air strikes from IAF*


The IDF reportedly carried out additional retaliation later Wednesday night, launching airstrikes in multiple other locations along the Gaza Strip against militants.
www.haaretz.com...
I wonder how many Palestinian civilians died in these retaliation attacks.


Earlier on Wednesday, IDF forces fired at a group of Gaza militants and wounded 11 people.
www.haaretz.com...
Basically, IDF forces fired across the border wounding 11 people (not confirmed they were indeed militants) earlier that day, before the rocket attack. Then Israel gets a rocket attack. Seems like it was a retaliation attack to me...no?

This entire conflict is based on revenge and retaliation. One hits the other, and the other feels it's his obligation to strike back. They need some leaders with balls. The ability to forgive is something rare, and it takes a lot of guts to forgive your enemies. The choice is fight and deal with rocket attacks and air strikes, or forgive and live in harmony. Because at the end of the day, if you choose not to forgive, you cannot be mad at your enemy for shooting rockets into your home. Both sides are not innocent, both sides have killed innocent civilians (though one side has killed 10 fold the amount..). Haven't seen a single war yet were any side had clean hands.

Interesting that this happened as soon as the Iranian ships docked at the Syrian port. I think the Iranians were saying "hello-we're here"

Well it did not work
Think Iran is trying to make Israel believe it was indirectly involve there, did not work
Good for them used it as an excuse to hype the "Grad" as a new "Scud"... plus a "new" missile
Israel just fish testing a new anti-Scud off california coast with the US
