Something smells fishy about this one. There is likely a part of the story we are not being told.

I'm suspicious that there is someone else at play here, making an effort to alter the political climate.

How did this end up in the Israel room?

You posted a message saying, "It's not just for the middle east anymore... sorry Oslo..." on the 24th of July.

Heh, it was still pretty funny.

The story did die off pretty fast. I'm still suspicious.

Not sure which is creepiest to me:  the theft/distribution, how long - and how far - it's flown under the radar....or the amassing of the data in the first place.

Happy birthday to the nation of Israel.

For those of you who rely on regular news - over 250 missiles have landed in Israel in towns like Ashkelon, Ashdod, and Beer Sheva since Friday. 
Note that the missile range has greatly increased due to the disengagement in 2005. (Missiles are being fired from the areas where settlements were destroyed.)

Wonderful. :-(

Whatever happened to the room "Glass Parking Lot"? Seems it may be relevant, again. :-(

TriL, glad your safe.  I hear the iron defense net is working very well, luckily.

There's supposed to be a cease-fire. We'll see. 

For the weekend, we're supposed to be going to Kibbutz Ein Tzurim, which is in the south, for  a bar mitzva. If there are still sirens and shelters, I'm going to be missing my nephew's bar mitzva, I guess. I don't want my children traumatized by sirens in the middle of the night.

One of my close friends lives in Beer Sheva (where stuff is falling all the time). Her parents live in Elkana (a small town in Samaria), and she and the kids have been there for the past week and a half - her husband had to go back to Beer Sheva to work. There's some slight irony in the fact that she's safer in a 'settlement' than in a city which is entirely within the green line.

I don't know what I'd do if I lived in the south or if the missiles were falling here, but I'm not going to take my kids somewhere where things are bad when I have a home somewhere 'safer' for them.

Seems like sound logic to me!  Stay safe.

Ok, clue me in on something here.

How is it that firing rockets at your neighbors is not considered an act of war?

Why is the global community not condemning "Palestine" and treating it as the same type of hostile regime as Iran and North Korea? Why is a cluster of terrorists allowed to be treated as if they are a real country?

And, in order to present something a little lighter:

That's just it - because they're not a real country, they aren't held responsible - which is one of the arguments for granting them statehood. 

Of course, Gaza is its own political entity, so... I'm not feeling confident that Israel would be allowed to go to war with it even if it were a country. Plus I shudder to imagine what would happen if they had an airport and  seaport for bringing in more/bigger weapons.

Well, if they're not a real country, and they're firing rockets at Israel, then why aren't they treated as criminals?

They're treated as a buffer zone.
