Israel Wreaks Havoc in Gaza; Long Past Due....

Israeli warplanes and combat helicopters pounded the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip on Saturday, killing at least 155 people in the bloodiest day for Palestinians in more than 20 years of conflict.
Militants in the Gaza Strip responded with rocket salvoes that killed one Israeli man and wounded several others. Both sides said they were prepared to launch wider attacks.

Black smoke billowed over Gaza City, where the dead and wounded lay scattered on the ground after more than 30 air strikes destroyed Palestinian security compounds, including two where Hamas was hosting graduation ceremonies for new recruits.

Beautiful, says I. Killing these graduating terrorists before they had a chance to maim one innocent victim is doing God's work (see here for a moral justification of that position, incidentally). Personally, I feel the U.S should drop a few cluster munitions on some of those "Death to America" rallies held in Iran, and Syria....

Here's a BBC report, with its typical pro-Palestinian bent toned down a bit. Interesting to note, around the 3:30 mark, how the BBC announcer makes references to several thousand "stonger, more powerful" missiles - perhaps smuggled in from Iran - that Israel believed Hamas was gearing up to use against them:

I'm not going to backlink to this user, as his comments are filled with loathsome anti-semitism (and I don't know about the motivations of the host either), but there was at least one salient point made in the morass of hatred that could be found there:

"If Hamas and the Islamic world in general laid down it's weapons tomorrow there would be peace. If Isreal laid down their weapons tomorrow they would be dead"
