Israeli artillery continued to attack the Gaza Strip over the weekend, killing at least five Palestinians, while several groups fired scores of rockets at Israel, damaging homes and leading Israeli officials to threaten another full-scale invasion.
While talking up war in comments domestically Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is said to be pushing an international diplomatic effort to convince the rest of the world that another invasion is acceptable.
It shouldn’t be too much of a transition for Israeli diplomats, as while Israel hasn’t invaded the strip outright in a few years they have been more or less constantly talking up the next such invasion, citing how well the 2008-09 one supposedly worked.
Egyptian officials, who just weeks ago had negotiated a ceasefire, are said to be feverishly at work trying to stave off the war, but Israeli officials are denying that any progress has been made and seem to have transitioned to the “war at all cost” position their far-right coalition has been so comfortable with.

Seriously??? "while several groups fired scores of rockets at Israel, damaging homes" – over 100 rockets were shot into Israeli cities, attacking civillians and thsi is what you have to say… How about 4 soldiers who were wounded in Israel by the anti -tank atatck on their jeep that started this… Not to mention the 4 who were killed were terrorist firing at civillians…
This is what has become of reporting the news, you should be embarrased!
Right Jeff. And during the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, Jews in the open air concentration camp fired on the Nazis and killed some of them. Goliath (Israel) against a diminutive David (Gazans)
Jeff, Trade you one Israeli rocket for 100 Palestinian rockets. One hundred of theirs are about as effective as one of the Israeli's. I saw in another article that 100 Israelis were injured being treated for "shock". Hundreds of thousands of Gazans are suffering from "shock" every day because of the Israeli-imposed "starvation diet" on them.
Just because the Palestinians are militarily incompetent, doesn't mean they're more benevolent. A large percentage of them would kill every Jew in Israel if they could.
You can almost read Netanyahou's little reptile brain thinking – "Oh Crap, the guy we wanted lost, and now we might not get the destruction of Iran, let's ease our pain and frustration by kicking the Palestinians around again".
Maybe this time the Egyptians will intervene militarily and defend the Palestinians since no once else in the world has the gumption to do it.
This is laughable. Israel???? Ceasefire???? The two words are mutually exclusive. These despots won't stop until they've murdered every Semite in Palestine. And they've got a boatload of White Phosphorus all ready for the occasion.
I beg your pardon–all Jews (including Ashkenazi Jews) are Semites, and DNA proves it. Look it up on Wikipedia.
Should the zionist invade they will be in for a surprise Hamas is better armed now and better trained by Hassan Nasrallah soldiers, Iran and the looted arms from Libya that includes Sams/Rpgs that are among the most modern. This time it will be all different.
