Foggy Bottom has always been attempting to dictate Israeli policy, OUR ONLY ALLY in the ME.Our gub'ment tries using them as the stray lamb they kick daily just to hear it in pain. One day not only the lamb which has now grown and no longer can be bullied and soon G!D that created that dog will come and He won't pull His punches this time around. Beware the WRATH OF THE LAMB!

Oops Fox news just now , Gaza fired a military grade rocket into Israel, Israel retaliates, short sound byte
