Guess there will be candy-tossing in Gaza tonight.

Please ping to your respective ping lists!

It was only a matter of time before the Qassams from Gaza would cause more deaths in Israel. The only solution is for Israel to wipe out the Pali animals' missile capability entirely, but I don't think that even this tragedy is enough for Olmerde to respond in such a way.

Maybe the siver lining here is that this sad event will speed Olmerde's exit.

Thank you!

According to CBS, in 2001 the ethnic makeup of the city was 99.8% Jewish and other non-Arabs, without significant Arab population.

From another source, a perfect target for the Palestinians. Another tribe. So long as there is an Israel, the world will know both hope and hatred.

Olmert needs to unleash Chiang. If he won’t do so he must be driven from office and replaced with someone who will. Every one of these attacks that is not met with massive retaliation compounds Israel’s security problems immeasurably.
