How to make friends and blow up people
At a time when Israel is looking for the support of the international community, including its Arab neighbours, over the Iranian president's speech calling for Israel to wiped off the planet, you'd have thought they might try to endear themselves in some way.
A Palestinian suicide bomber blew up 5 Israeli's in a market so Israel launched a rocket attack into Palestine, killing 8 people.
This is against international law because a military response to a threat must use appropriate force equivalent to the attack. Suicide bomber ... missiles attack. Sorry but that is not the same level of force.
Anyway, this is nothing special - it's been going on for long enough and nobody really expects any better from a country that has defied more UN resolutions than any other member and has the dubious honour of being the only country to share China's status of an occupying power (Tibet).
What is really going to piss people off is this quote from Israeli Defence Minister, Shaul Mofaz ...
"We could reach interim agreements [but] I don't think that a Palestinian state
will see the light of day in the coming years."
I think Mr Mofaz will find that there is already a Palestinian state. It is recognised by the UN and pretty much every other country in the world except Israel. Israel is illegally occupying Palestine in defiance of an endless list of UN resolutions telling them to get out of Palestine and Jerusalem.
The Israeli's have nothing but contempt for anyone but themselves.
