Now, watch this... Israel's going to say, "I told you so..." [UPDATE]


predicting an "i told you so" response from israel was a serious understatement on my part...
Israeli airplanes attacked targets in the Gaza Strip early Friday in response to a Palestinian rocket attack that killed a foreign worker in southern Israel, witnesses said.

At least four targets in Gaza were hit during the air strikes that started shortly after midnight, including a smuggling tunnel, two open areas and a metal foundry near Gaza City.

Israel believes that the metal workshop was used to produce rockets that Gaza factions fire on Israel.

There were no immediate reports about casualties during the strikes.

helpless, stateless, rights-less, jailed, starving, beaten, maimed, and wantonly murdered, promised a "two-state" solution for countless years, all the while watching israel gradually but very methodically eat up the rest of their land, destroy their houses, and commit war crimes with impunity, the palestinians and the residents of gaza can't do a damn thing to help themselves except fire the occasional smuggled rocket into israel just to remind the israelis that they're there and incredibly pissed off...
Palestinian militants fired a rocket at Israel from the Gaza Strip on Thursday, killing a Thai farm worker, Israeli medics said, in the first death from a rocket attack since Israel's Gaza offensive last year.


Thousands of crude rockets launched from Gaza at Israel over a seven-year period sparked the Israeli military's three-week offensive in the Gaza Strip. The brief war devastated the Palestinian territory, killing 1,400 Palestinians, including hundreds of civilians. Thirteen Israelis were killed.


Thousands of homes were razed or damaged during Israel's offensive, but reconstruction is on hold because building supplies, including cement, cannot reach Gaza. International aid officials have offered to guarantee that the materials would be used only for civilian purposes, but Israel believes that cement and pipes could be diverted by Hamas to build rockets and bunkers.


Last year, the international community pledged some $4.5 billion for Gaza's reconstruction, but little has been spent because of the blockade, aid officials say.

a militant group has claimed responsibility but ya gotta stop and think... how much of the militancy is caused by israel's genocidal behavior...? how much attention does one person killed inside israel by a militant group in gaza get vs. one person killed in gaza by israelis...? the answers are a no-brainer...
