Is this time for real? There had been a number of speculations as to when or whether Israel would air-strike Iran during the past months.

Israel is destroying the new rockets said to be supplied by Iran to Gaza. It still wants to attack Iran, and could have acted if not for the fact that the US is reluctant to support its ambition till now. Looks like it is more of a question of “when”. (vzc1943, mtd1943)

I don’t know many Americans that agree with you. Here we see Hamas fire hundreds of rockets at civillian targets. They then hide among their women and children and cry atrocities when Israel responds. They also celebrate when their rockets actually kill Israel civillians. Hamas is a terrorist organization. I fully support Isreal’s right to defend itself, just like President Obama has stated. What do you think the right retalliation should be? Fire rockets at Hamas civillians?

You are so eager to talk about children deaths caused by Israel but you don’t talk about the drone assassinations much do you?

They both kill children. Both probably as equally careful in execution yet only one talked about…. >.

Here’s how the negotiation went:
Clinton to Mursi…Mursi, unless you stop Hamas you won’t get that billion dollar check from the American taxpayer.

Mursi to Hamas….Hamas, unless you stop firing at Israel you won’t get your annual deposit of American taxypayer money into your Swiss bank accounts.

Result: Mursi and Hamas agree to a ceasefire until the check clears

What a bunch of idiots we Americans are

“Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Hamas had suffered a heavy military blow, including the death of its top commander”
Yea, killed during a fake truce meant to get him out in the open, the dirtiest trick I have ever heard of in recent times by any so called “civilized” country.

The Zionists and the Americans have become the Nazi’s of the new century. Funny how the future of the planet depends on our previous ‘enemies’ of China and Russia standing up to our western governments. Germany at the turn of the last century had also enjoyed economic and military supremacy over the rest of the world as the usa does today. That didn’t save them when the rest of the world rose up, and it won’t save the usa if the world finally rises up against them too.
