Take a look at the UN Council Chamber, see how well a detailed picture would work for the Third-World countries sat at the back.

That's awesome. They aren't use to that sort of freedom of speech, and asssumed it was fact.

Less amusing that the story was sat on so as not to negatively impact POTUS. Same with the Seal Team discipline.

Re: All things Middle East related

I clearly don't understand the assassination of a man who just brokered a peace deal with your country 3 hours earlier.

Israel’s Shortsighted Assassination - NYTimes.com



Quote:
Passing messages between the two sides, I was able to learn firsthand that Mr. Jabari wasn’t just interested in a long-term cease-fire; he was also the person responsible for enforcing previous cease-fire understandings brokered by the Egyptian intelligence agency. Mr. Jabari enforced those cease-fires only after confirming that Israel was prepared to stop its attacks on Gaza. On the morning that he was killed, Mr. Jabari received a draft proposal for an extended cease-fire with Israel, including mechanisms that would verify intentions and ensure compliance. This draft was agreed upon by me and Hamas’s deputy foreign minister, Mr. Hamad, when we met last week in Egypt.

The goal was to move beyond the patterns of the past. For years, it has been the same story: Israeli intelligence discovers information about an impending terrorist attack from Gaza. The Israeli Army takes pre-emptive action with an airstrike against the suspected terror cells, which are often made up of fighters from groups like Islamic Jihad, the Popular Resistance Committees or Salafi groups not under Hamas’s control but functioning within its territory. These cells launch rockets into Israeli towns near Gaza, and they often miss their targets. The Israeli Air Force responds swiftly. The typical result is between 10 and 25 casualties in Gaza, zero casualties in Israel and huge amounts of property damage on both sides.
Quote:
Instead, Mr. Jabari is dead — and with him died the possibility of a long-term cease-fire. Israel may have also compromised the ability of Egyptian intelligence officials to mediate a short-term cease-fire and placed Israel’s peace treaty with Egypt at risk.

This was not inevitable, and cooler heads could have prevailed. Mr. Jabari’s assassination removes one of the more practical actors on the Hamas side.

Israel doesn't want peace. They want to take the Palestine land. That much has been clear over the course of the past 50 years.

While I do not agree with much of Israel's actions, I would strongly disagree with this. What Israel wants is security within its borders. They have vacated the Gaza Strip, the Sinai Peninsula and the Golan Heights in exchange for the promise of peace. If the Hamas stop shooting rockets at them, I would suggest that the Israelites would be happy to leave them alone. As it is, they respond with overwhelming force to these attacks. Further, the Hamas is fundamentally a group opposed to the existence of Israel.

It's like your neighbor, who hates you, throwing rocks into your yard when your kids are playing and, with no police to stop him from doing so, you take it upon yourself to throw hand grenades into his yard to make it stop.

Neither party is blameless in this latest round.

You kind of left out this part.

AHMED AL-JABARI — the strongman of Hamas, the head of its military wing, the man responsible for the abduction of the Israeli soldier Gilad Shalitwas assassinated on Wednesday by Israeli missiles.
