and it was supposed to be the season of a cease fire....

Iran hosts 'The World without Zionism' Jerusalem Post:

"Iran's hard-line president called for Israel to be "wiped off the map" and said a new wave of Palestinian attacks will destroy the Jewish state, state-run media reported Wednesday."

Officials: Jihad in Syria ordered strikes Ynet News:

"Rockets fired at southern Israeli community in recent days ordered by Islamic Jihad headquarters in Damascus; Israel relayed warning message to Syria prior to attacks. Qassam fire continues Tuesday night."

All that, plus 5 dead and 30 injured in today's suicide attack.


My theory regarding the growing anti-Semitism known as the "Fear the NeoCon Cabal Movement" isn't just a blogger's musing anymore-- How to build a conspiracy Evan Goldstein, JPost:

"For those who don't know (where have you been?), the contemporary use of "neoconservative" is analogous to a sophisticated-sounding epithet for all that ails the world."


"For instance, consider a recent review essay in the respected on-line magazine Salon that buzzes with conspiratorial implication. The author, Gary Kamiya, takes the recent publication of George Packer's book The Assassins' Gate as an opportunity to repeatedly ascribe to Packer an Israel-centric interpretation of the war in Iraq. (Packer was quick to point out the fallacy of these charges). In Kamiya's account, two factors drove America to invade Iraq: "Paul Wolfowitz's desire to atone for America's failure to topple Saddam at the end of the first Gulf War, and the neocons' obsession with defending Israel." (Kudos to Kamiya for employing the more colloquially sinister "neocon.")"
