JERUSALEM — Israeli troops and armored vehicles began a massive push toward the Lebanon border late Wednesday, marking the start of a new ground offensive aimed at neutralizing Hezbollah's rocket-launching capabilities, FOX News has learned.

Israel also launched an airstrike on Lebanon's largest Palestinian refugee camp, killing at least two people. The camp is home to about 75,000 Palestinian refugees and their descendants who were displaced by the 1948 Arab-Israeli war.

The bad news is this:
The new ground assault was approved by Israel's Security Cabinet in hopes of scoring quick battlefield victories before a cease-fire is imposed.

THAT makes it sound like they're just trying to gain yardage before the referee's whistle blows.

The IAF must have lousy bombs or all their pilots are crossed eyed or blind in one eye, they launched an air strike on Lebanon's largest Palestinian refugee camp with 75,000 refugees and their descendants and they killed only 2 Palestinians?

I can kill 2 Palestinians out of 75,000 and descendants just by throwing a hand grenade.

Israel is serious when this place ceases to exist.

Note the original wording:
The camp is home to about 75,000 Palestinian refugees

It's possible there was no one at home - the noise might have been rather loud lately.

There is no such thing as a refugee camp since 1948.

Thats their home . Its where they want to live. Its not a camp its a town. Do any of them work or have they been sucking on the foreign aid tit since 1948??

Changing my words af? In whose terms is Israel seriously late..yours?

Are YOU A soldier, willing to die for his/her Country? Are YOU the leader of a Godly Nation?

I am offended....truly. Maybe you are a vet, your screen name implies it...Jonhn Kerry was a Vet as well.

Do we have a serious disagreement?

"Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah retaliated by warning all Arabs to leave the Israeli port city of Haifa so the guerrilla organization could step up attacks without fear of shedding the blood of fellow Muslims."

This guy was born an actor, as most of them are. He will continue to slither to safety as his morons get mowed down.
Their leaders always take that route. Cowards.

Really?!! These guys have been camping for 58 freakin' years?

Something's not right here---and, although the award for "the dumbest people on the planet" goes to the 75,000 'Palestinian' campers---the failure of the MSM to have ever exposed the sheer idiocy of this purely public relations effort speaks volumes about how uninformed we have been.

The MSM has not served mankind well, at all, since 1967 (IMHO). Bias is certainly a major culprit, but I suspect incompetence ranks a close second.

No, your words were in italics.

Not mine alone

I am offended

I'd give you change for a cup of coffee if that would help.

Did you know John Kerry served in Vietnam ?

Do we have a serious disagreement?

Unfortunately there is not much we can do about it. The border is pretty much closed down to all but the IDF and credentialed journalists and JimRob banned CyberDueling.

And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries?
