You only see one side to the equation here.
How many rockets must be fired at Israel before they can fight back?
Yesterday MSNBC was reporting 1350 rockets from Israel and 75 from GAZA from the start of the latest
armed actions. And they are breathless supporters of Israel as are all American Media.
Unless you were there, it could have went either way. But, most likely Israel started the action because they
want to attack Iran and are taking the backdoor blame route.
If Lebanon were the target then Lebanon would be stated to the press as the originator of the rockets.
If Syria were the target then Syria supplied the rockets.
Netanyahu seeks reelection. Israel also wants to insure the same if not a larger portion of foreign aid money
and they will not see the fiscal cliff budget ax fall on them.
Your grandma maybe, some injured soldier's VA money, your mortgage tax credit are all up for grabs.
But money to Israel will get an earmark first.
What did Hamas have to gain? Nothing.
