The Thousand Year War, Continued

Religion of Peace (TM) launches more Love-Rockets into Haifa, killing eight.

Lebanese guerillas fired a relentless barrage of rockets into the northern Israeli city of Haifa on Sunday, killing eight people at a train station and wounding seven others in a dramatic escalation of a five-day-old conflict that has shattered Mideast peace.

Soon afterward, Israeli warplanes hit the south Beirut stronghold of Hezbollah with at least six airstrikes, shaking the Lebanese capital and sending up a cloud of thick smoke. Hezbollah's firing of at least 20 rockets at Haifa came after Israel unleashed its fiercest bombardment yet of Beirut, reducing apartment buildings to rubble and knocking out electricity in many areas of the city.


Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said there would be "far-reaching consequences" for the Haifa attack.

Those rocket were, shockingly enough, Syrian-made:

Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz said on Sunday afternoon that the more advanced Fajar missiles that were fired with a barrage of other rockets at Haifa on Sunday morning, killing eight people, were made in Syria.

Iran behind attack on Israeli warship:

Israeli officials charged that elite Iranian troops operating in Lebanon were involved in the Hezbollah offensive, and were responsible for firing an Iranian-made, radar-guided C802 missile - not the unmanned bomb-laden drone originally reported - that struck the warship on Friday, killing four sailors.

"There are Iranian officers belonging to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard among Hezbollah and they operated the missile," said Israeli Vice Prime Minister and elder statesman Shimon Peres.

Iran and Hezbollah both denied cooperation but Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad condemned Israel's military offensive in Lebanon, saying "the Zionist regime behaves like Hitler," Iranian state television reported.

Sorry to write so little yesterday. I just can't keep up with it, and it's all a little dispiriting. Also, there just doesn't seem to be much new. Muslims murder people, non-Muslims bomb empty buildings, killing no one at all.

Olmert keeps threatening serious consequences, but thusfar he seems to be very restrained and cautious. Perhaps wise, given the fact that Israel, despite its overhyped warmaking capability, is really a very small country that cannot survive very long were it forced into total war, at least not without huge and controversial subsidies and armaments provided by the US government. But I don't see much changing here. The Islamists have escalated into a higher gear, and will probably remain at that higher gear, now that the French and Russians and Italians and Germans and Chinese have given them their blessing to kill Jews.

Whoa, Germans on that list? What a surprise.
