"We do have some differences and our approaches will be different, but that makes him his own person. I mean why should he [Rand] be a clone and do everything and think just exactly as I have. I think it's an opportunity to be independent minded. We are about 99% the same on issues." "People Try To Drive Wedges Between Rand And Me." --Ron Paul
I haven't really done enough research to know if the Iran thing is true or not, but if Iran is arming the Palestinians, is there a reason they would only give them crappy unguided rockets with a high trajectory that are easily shot down by the existing defenses? Surely Iran is capable of making something more effective, like a cheap guided cruise missile. They wouldn't need to smuggle nearly as many in that case, and it would have far more effect.
And what about miniature surface-to-air missile launchers like the Stingers we gave to the Afghans so they could attack Soviet aircraft in Afghanistan? Seems like that would be far easier to smuggle in than huge unguided rockets, and infinitely more useful to the Palestinians in their current situation.
If Iran is actually doing this, is there some reason why they would take the risk of bringing destruction on themselves by sneaking weapons into Gaza, only to give them something totally ineffective?
It's being reported that a cease fire will commence at 2200 Zulu. Crossing my fingers.

In this world nothing is certain but death and taxes.
I'm trying to find it but a few in this thread have said that the "jews" in Israel are not true jewish people. can someone explain that?
Are you sayingthere are no real ethnic Jews left or that they just dont live in Israel?
Feel free to stop in at my blog. Much of it has to do with Canadian content but the principles are much the same for all...
Shlomo Sand’s claim is that there has historically never been a such thing as a Jewish "nation." Judaism, he claims, is a religion and shouldn't be viewed as something that merits a state of its own. In that respect probably most immigrants to Israel aren't practicing Jews and are merely linked to Judaism via some sort of vague genetics.
There are also claims that lots of Russian immigrants in particular aren't Jewish. They just claim it to get out of Russia and move to Israel with lots of perks.
For instance here's something talking about it.
Perhaps it's actually an Egyptian group, they have easy access to the smuggling tunnels--who knows? We won't get the truth here, everything will be blamed on Iran.
I would like to pose a question to everyone here who is pro Hamas, what in your opinion should the solution be with Israel and the Palestinians?
