The great point here missed by the morons of the media is why is Israel smashing Hamas "NOW"?

Perhaps the answer is more a strategic one.............

As Iran stockpiles uranium for bombs and the soon approach of Jan 20th, Israel is faced with the reality of taking on Iran alone. Before it can attack Irans nuclear facilities it makes sense to destroy Hama on its back door.

For those who think Hamas isn't backed by Iran consider this..

Iran's leader Ali Khamenei: "... we regard Palestine as an organ of our body, and the support of the Palestinian nation is pride for the Iranian people... The Palestinian people must continue the blessed Jihad and its standing against the enemies of Islam... The Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Fatah forces must continue the struggle in a united way... But, indeed, the only solution [to the crisis in the region] is the elimination of the root of this crisis, which is the Zionist regime imposed on the region." (Khabar TV, Iran, 20 October 2000)

Although this raid in Gaza has its tactical interests, the current action is strategic if Israel is about to take out Irans nukes........

Go get'em IDF.......Godspeed..........
