This attack on Gaza seems more like cheap jab before the whistle is blown. For once, I don’t feel like crying wolf, howling that on a strike on Iran is imminent. Obama will be tested, but that’s too suicidal of a gambit for Israel.
It’s the crazy evangelicals here in the U.S. who are trying to bring about an apocalypse. Whatever problems that I have with the ruthless lack of ethics of the hardliners in Israel in their goals of “security,” they are pragmatic. Even if some renegade Iranians are caught red-handed lobbing rockets, there will be restraint.
