"Air Force strikes in Gaza"

SNIPPET: "IDF retaliates for deadly Qassam attack: Air Force hits several Gaza targets, including metal foundry, smuggling tunnel; Vice PM Shalom says Israel to offer strong response to rocket attack that killed Thai worker Thursday"

SNIPPET: "IDF aircraft struck at least four targets in the Gaza Strip on Friday, a day after a rocket fired from the Palestinian enclave killed a Thai worker in Israel, Hamas security officials and witnesses said."

SNIPPET: "Israel also sent a letter of complaint to United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, who is due to visit Israel at the weekend, and to the UN Security Council.

A previously unknown group, Ansar al-Sunna, believed to share the hardline ideology of al-Qaeda, claimed responsibility for the rocket fire at Israel, as well as the al-Aqsa Martrys Brigades, a wing of the Fatah movement.

Earlier, Deputy Defense Minister Matan Vilnai said that Israel holds Hamas accountable for attacks originating in the Gaza Strip regardless of the group that commits them."

“Again: Gaza Rocket Slams into Israel”

by Gil Ronen

SNIPPET: “( A short range rocket slammed into southern Israel Thursday evening, within the territory of the Eshkol Local Authority. No one was hurt. Earlier in the day, a Thai worker was killed by a similar rocket.

Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon held a press conference Thursday at Netiv Ha’asara, near the spot where the foreign worker was killed.

“This is one rocket out of 12,000 that the citizens of Israel have endured in recent years,” the Deputy Foreign Minister said.”The responsibility for this attack rests with Hamas.””

Hamas ‘day of rage’ leads to violent incidents across Israel
Ha’aretz ^ | Last update - 23:36 16/03/2010 | Liel Kyzer, Jack Khoury, Fadi Eyadat and News Agencies
Posted on March 16, 2010 2:54:37 PM PDT by sofaman

IDF official: Neither Israel nor PA wants more conflict; police chief: This will not lead to third intifada.


After Hamas declared an official “day of rage” leading to clashes between Palestinians and Israeli security forces across Jerusalem on Tuesday, the violence seemed also to spread to other parts of the country.

Assailants in the central Israeli city of Jaffa hurled rocks at two public buses, cracking the back window of one of them. Rocks were also thrown at a truck near Kibbutz Mishmar Hanegev in the south and at two vehicles in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Abu Dor. There were no casualties in any of the incidents.

A senior Israel Defense Forces officer said that despite the outbreak of violence, neither the Palestinian Authority nor Israel was interested in seeing a renewal of conflict. “Everyone understands that we can’t let this region fall into unbridled violence,” he said.

Dozens of Palestinians fought with Israeli police earlier Tuesday in Jerusalem in response to Hamas’ call to protest Israel’s consecration of an ancient synagogue in the city the day before.

“Israel attack on Iran could ignite MidEast - Hezbollah”

SNIPPET: “Hezbollah, a Shi’ite Lebanese group, was set up with the help of Iranian Revolutionary Guards to fight Israeli forces that invaded Lebanon in 1982 and still enjoys strong support from Tehran as well as Syria.

The group fought a 34-day war with Israel in 2006 that cost 1,200 lives in Lebanon and 159 in Israel. Despite U.N. resolutions and a U.N. peacekeeping force, Hezbollah has since rearmed.”

Needed: A Reset with Israel
Tue at 11:01am

The Obama Administration reaches out to some of the world’s worst regimes in the name of their engagement policy. America and our allies watch as sanctions are eased on Cuba. Letters are written to Iran’s mullahs only to see that regime start killing protestors in the streets of Tehran. Envoys are sent to North Korea as they continue to defy the world’s demand to give up their nuclear weapons. The Burmese military junta’s representative is allowed to travel to our nation’s capital. The President’s envoy for Sudan talks about giving that genocidal regime “gold stars,” while the President shakes hands with Venezuela’s tyrannical leader. In the midst of all this embracing of enemies, where does the Obama Administration choose to escalate a minor incident into a major diplomatic confrontation? With Iran, Cuba, Sudan, North Korea or Burma? No. With our treasured ally, Israel.

Last October, Secretary of State Clinton recognized Israel’s desire for peace in the Middle East and praised Israel’s “unprecedented” concessions for agreeing to halt settlement construction in the West Bank, a concession that did NOT include halting construction of apartments for Jews in Jerusalem. Even last week after planned construction was announced, Vice President Biden still expressed “appreciation” for the “significant” steps taken by the Israeli government to address this minor issue. Now, however, we see the Obama Administration has decided to escalate, make unilateral demands of Israel, and threaten the very foundation of the US-Israel relationship. This is quickly leading to the worst crisis in US-Israel relations in decades, and yet this did not have to happen. More importantly, it needs to stop before it spirals out of control. Vice President Biden should rein in the overheated Obama Administration rhetoric and chill the political spin masters’ fire as they visit the Sunday media shows to criticize Israel.

Once again, the Obama Administration is missing the boat on a very, very important issue. They need to go back to the basics and acknowledge Palestinian leaders have not progressed any peace process since President Obama was elected. As Israel makes concessions (and is still criticized by the Obama Administration), Arab leaders are just sitting back waiting for the White House to further pressure Israel. The Obama Administration needs to open its eyes and recognize that it is only Iran and her terrorist allies that benefit from this manufactured Israeli controversy. Vice President Biden was actually right when he said last week, before the construction announcement, that “one necessary precondition for progress is that the rest of the world knows...there is absolutely no space between the United States and Israel when it comes to security.” Right now, thanks to the Obama Administration, there is a chasm. It’s time for President Obama to push the reset button on our relations with our ally Israel.
