    Update: Israel has ramped it up in the last couple hours. Artillery, warships off the coast, and ground forces getting their battle rattle on for a ground incursion.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Egypt and Iran jumped into this.

    Let the games begin.............I wonder if this would be happening if Israel had the backing of the US government still.

    Breaking update on IDF military offensive: Witnesses in Gaza report a number of Israeli strikes in the Strip in recent minutes, including reports of explosions coming from the sea, Palestinian news agency Maan reported. The reports of a strikes coming from the sea were confirmed by the IDF via Twitter.

    Maan reported that air and naval bombardments are reaching the Gaza Strip, with witnesses adding that IDF combat soldiers are reaching towards the border.

    Other Palestinian reports said a car was targeted west of Gaza City.

    Egypt has recalled it's ambassador from Israel. Looks like a war coming very quickly.

    Israel has been at war for over 2000 years. My bet is on Israel, and I am a Southern Baptist Christian..

    I had the pleasure of listening to some of their high ranking IDF and Mossad people in Austin TX a few years ago speak on terrorism to our group of law enforcement administrators. I was never in my life more impressed by a group of speakers than I was of them. If I had only one choice to pick someone from anywhere in the world to watch my back, it would be them, hands down. They will win even if they have to turn the rest of the middle east to a shinny glass desert.

    Unless the Egyptions, etc. jump in this will blow over in a couple days. But if the Arabs/Muslims jump it could get very nasty very quickly, and if Israel see's it as a threat to their existence I wouldn't give 2 cents for all the real estate in Eygpt/Iran, etc.

    Agreed. It will either go back to the status quo of Israel's continuous struggle ..... or it will be 'end of days'. To soon to tell.

    Short answer,NO. US is controlled by a useless two-bit loser that hates Israel, and Hamas as well as the rest of the ragheads knows it.

    Israel would not have attacked without being provoked. They have had enough.

    In a tit for tat, Israel has recalled their ambassador from Cairo.

    Since the Muslim B'hood took over in Egypt, relations with Israel have steadily deteriorated and problems in Gaza have gone up.

    I'm pretty sure the B'hood is going to be opening the border to Gaza and sending in troops and weapons. I'm also sure that Bibi is expecting this to happen and that it is a large part of the reason for the general call up of the IDF. These two kids are ready to fight and Gaza is the playground.

    I'm quite surprised they have put up with the "stray shellings" over the boarder for this long. How many years has this been going on? Gaza has been a scrap-yard for decades. The Palastinins have let Hamas do whatever, and now need to pay the price.

    The whole region has been a powder keg with a slow burning fuse for along time. Israel knows bozo don't have their backs and so do the muslims. I hope Israel kicks the living s$%! outa anyone that messes with them. And not just an ass whoopin, an all out kick 'em when their down beating of their lives.

    It is all coming together now....

    Obama reelected,
    Mayan calendar ending,
    Israel saying "enough is enough"

    In the book by Douglas Adams - Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy.... people at the national aquarium who had been trying for years to communicate with dolphins using computers and sign language arrived one morning to find all the dolphins gone. In fact all the animals were gone. A message was flashing on the computer screen.."So long and thanks for all the fish" Unknown to mankind, an intergalactic memo had been sent out saying the planet earth was in the way of a new intergalactic transportation system and would be destroyed in two days. All the "smart" animals got the message and left the planet. Man was left standing around scratching his head.
