Qassam rocket hits Israeli military base
Hamas issued the expected response: “We consider this a victory from God for the resistence.”
Whose God? Not mine, though my understanding of the Abrahamic faiths is that we all begin with the same singular God. If only we could have all stayed there.
My friend Robert J. Avrech at Seraphic Secret renews his call for Israel to respond by cutting the power to Gaza.
Last week, Defense Minister Ehud Barak ordered his charges to look into the legal ramifications of cutting supplies to the Gaza Strip. I, however, anticipate nothing short of a major ground operation will alter the militants’ actions, which have been ongoing for six years. And I don’t expect that to happen any time soon.
