They asked for it ... and they received.

Of course, they are goading Israel into war because the world can’t stand it when the Jooooooooooooos defend themselves.

I read IDF sources this week that said they would start with surgical air and then put boots/Armor in.

Hamas will put their rockets up as well.

OPINION:

Hamas seems pretty cocky lately from what I have been reading on the internet, so my guess is they are pretty well supplied and ready to go.

With Hamas, who knows, They could even be trying to keep pressure (possible late 2008, early 2009 strike?) off of Iran by pulling this garbage and getting the IDF to concentrate on Gaza instead.

“TEXT - Israel Defence Force on Gaza strikes”
Sat 27 Dec 2008, 10:50 GMT
[-] Text [+]

ARTICLE SNIPPET: “JERUSALEM, Dec 27 (Reuters) - Following is the text of a statement by the Israeli Defence Force:

Israeli Air Force aircraft a short while ago attacked a series of Hamas targets and infrastructure facilities in the Gaza Strip. All Israeli pilots returned safely to their bases.

The IDF will continue its operations against terror in accordance with constant status assessments by the IDF Chief of General Staff. This operation will be continued, expanded and intensified as much as required.

The Air Force activity came as a result of the continuation of terrorist activity by the Hamas terror organisation from the Gaza Strip, and the continuation of rocket launching and targeting Israeli civilians.

The targets that were attacked were located by intelligence gathered during the past months and include Hamas terror operatives that operated from the organisation’s headquarters, training camps and weaponry storage warehouses.”

i guess at this “early” point of the conflict it´s impossible to say who is telling the “truth” (as if someone would ever tell the whole truth). for me i don´t thrust the information “both” sides release.

Well, I’ll take a stand on this...

Breaking news changes quickly, but eventually the dust dies down and the facts emerge.

My rule of thumb: Who would I want for a neighbor?
Israel: Yes.
Hamas: No.

Pure common sense.
