PA Double Talk on Honoring Terrorist, Jerusalem Bombing

Meanwhile, in Israel...

By Friday, defense minister Ehud Barak noted in the Jerusalem Post that "some 100 rockets and mortars… reaching communities further [from the Strip] than usual" were fired, with targets including Be'er Sheba, Ashdod, Sderot, Ashkelon, and Gaza border-region communities. One regional paper called the potential situation "the worst since Israel's deadly offensive in Gaza in the Winter of 2008-2009."

Map: Gaza missiles inch closer to Tel Aviv

Gaza-based Palestinian terrorists again escalated their confrontation with Israel on Thursday when they fired foreign-built missiles at towns just 10 miles south of the heavily-populated Tel Aviv metropolitan region.

Thursday’s back-and-forth was a continuation of the escalating war between southern Israel and Hamas-ruled Gaza. The situation began to spiral out of control over the weekend, when Hamas-allied terrorists fired more than 50 mortar shells and rockets into southern Israel.

Syria: Flashpoint Cities

Syrian troops have beefed up their presence in the volatile southern city of Deraa and taken position in the Mediterranean port of Latakia, where at least 15 people have died in two days of clashes between security forces and anti-regime protesters.

Buildings in the commercial centre bore the marks of destruction and fire, and residents said they were staying indoors for fear of a new round of the deadly violence that gripped the city this weekend.

The unrest has put enormous pressure on Assad, who succeeded his father Hafez on his death in 2000.

Hello Scott
A Syrian female Politician was being interviewed by BBC Sunday about the problems Syria is having.

She was extremely eloquent and spoke with a far too perfect, English accent. At the end of her diatribe she suddenly interjected with "this will seem to be out of context, but Syria's real problem is, Israel'! :/

Why of course! Its always Israel's fault - all of the problems in the world? Israel's fault...

But thats the world we are living in, unfortunately
