In 2006 the Israel/Lebanon ceasefire had already been decided when Israel dropped hundreds of thousands of cluster bombs in a despicable act of vengeance. These bombs were to kill Lebanese civilians long after the ceasefire had begun and of course that was exactly the idea. We are dealing with a very sick nation when dealing with Israel. The ‘cast lead’ operation had support of 94% of Israelis in one survey and a recent one suggested 90% support for the current onslaught. The bombing of a bus in Tel Aviv today will prolong the turkey shoot in Gaza much longer which makes me believe that it could well be dark forces in Israel that may have carried out such an attack. Whatever the outcome, we can virtually guarantee that just as with Lebanon a few years ago, the Israelis will have ‘storm before the calm’ if and when it comes.
Storm before the calm?
