Gates of Vienna News Feed 11/16/2012

Gates of Vienna News Feed 11/16/2012Missiles launched from Gaza continue to fall on Israel, including at least one that reached the southern suburbs of Jerusalem. Hamas announced that it was targeting the Israeli Knesset.

Meanwhile, the BBC has been caught again retailing fake “Pallywood” war victim footage. In the latest example, a clip showed an injured Palestinian man, allegedly a victim of an Israeli strike, being carried away by several comrades. A short while later the same man could be seen, completely unharmed, directing the activities of others.

My advice is that Hamas seems too eager to pull Israel into a ground war. Either there is a direct or indirect trap awaiting. It could all be as simple as pulling Israel's forces to the West so the East flank is less protected. It could be to encourage Iran, Syria and Egypt to join in the war. Something smells rotten.
