Tbar220: The scary thing about this attack, was the Hamas confrimed that they were trying for a "mega-attack", trying to explode chemical tanks in the port full of Bromide gas and other toxic chemicals.
Relax, they didn’t. It is a fact that the suicide bomber entered the first warehouse he saw after he crossed the port fence and blew up himself. He didn’t try to get to the chemical tanks or anywhere else. Only after endless words by Israeli reporters, politicians and others, Hamas said what they did but I don’t buy it. It was a "conventional" terror attack.
Qlguy24: I really miss Yitzak Rabin today. I think the situation would have looked totally different if he hadn't been shot.
When Rabin was the PM
, Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip and West Bank, and Palestinians blew up themselves in Israel, murdering hundreds of Israelis without any Israeli response. Is that what you are missing? (I don’t really think so, but that was the Israeli reality back then.)
About the elections. The next Israeli election is planed to Nov 07 but definitely it will happen sooner. Today, thanks to the Palestinians, there is no left in Israel. When Sharon will leave politics, Netanyaho has the best chances to be the PM
Are you blind??????? If it is not rocks they are throwing. what is it then??
Have you watched new on the television??
So I understand that this is all you see. You don’t see (because no one shows it to you) all the heavy stuff they use. The Anti tank missiles for example etc (they have much more than rocks).
Fritzi, if Israel had used everything it has with all force ahead, this Intifada was over after few hours (but we simply let things go from worse to worsen slowly and yesterday he had to deal with a 10 years old boy who tried to smuggle a big bomb into Israel).
