That and 30,000 Israeli troops are probably going to invade Gaza and create open war.

Then everyone's allies will be sucked in.

The end of days camp get plenty of mileage out of the ongoing conflict in Palestine.

Central Gaza City has been reportedly hit in a series of Israeli airstrikes as Palestinian resistance fighters hit back by firing rockets deep into Israel. The report comes as another Palestinian rocket hit the Israeli city of Be'er Sheva in the Negev desert.

Also, Israeli media announced that Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv has been shut down as a result of rocket attacks from Gaza.

There is no threat from North Africa,the Egyptian Military pocket plenty of Cash that the US pumps into Egypt every year.The only thing Isreal cannot rely on now is US support.

The unwavering support by the US and the UK is astounding, considering Israel has yet to comply with to any of the resolutions passed (see list) by the United Nations in relation to the Middle East conflict..

The list is amazingly long..

Yeah I don't see Egypt getting that involved in this. Too much to lose if they got directly involved. Those who are hoping for WW3 are going to be disappointed again.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

The US pumps large amounts of cash into the ME and this keeps a lot of people quiet.

Unfortunately this is true but until the balance of power changes there will be no change,thats why Isreal are sabre rattling over Iran.If Iran aquires a working nuclear weapon then Isreal wouldn't be the regional bully anymore.

The latest attacks by Israel against Gaza have been condemned as a violation of international law. However the US and UK have given their unwavering support to the new strikes on Gaza?

I guess if international Law means nothing... Then national Laws mean even less. Quite an insane situation isn't it..

To be fair it seems whenever the UN gets bored they pass resolutions against Israel. They're not saints at all but there are plenty of worst countries in the world that more deserve the attention and hatred.


As for the current conflict the Israelis need to get it through their skulls that high civilian deaths, regardless of military targets in the area, are only going to piss the world off. And the Palestinians need to get it through their skulls that endlessly launching rockets at another country is only going to get themselves attacked. Just another example about how neither side wants peace and just wants to butcher each other.
