    Comments like 'blast them back into the stoneage' don't really help either. They're an endearing lot the Israelis but at which point Hamas thought 'I know I'm going to buy 500 missles and start firing them at Tel Aviv with fook all chance of success' is also a little odd.

    Indeed - it's pre-emptive move to deal with problem next door, this removes one of the cards Iran holds.

    Yep. The sites of interest are too well protected for conventional air delivered weapons. The Israelis won't use nukes.

    They'd keep stockpile of missiles otherwise ready for war with Iran to kick off, they can't be moved now easily ...

    The problem for Israel is that the Palestinians now have missiles that can reach Tel Aviv so they have have proved their point. What they now need to do is stop attacking Israel and wait until next year so they can actually train someone who can hit a target

    The missiles that the Palestinians own are an annoyance in the grand scale of things, a mere bee sting.

    I did have to do a double take when on twitter the hash tag #PrayForGazza was trending
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    Agree. Do you think Hezbollah will open a second front? That would make things interesting.
