Why Israel Dropped a Bomb in Syria Last Month
News is leaking out that North Korea was either building a nuclear weapons plant in Syria or giving Syria the capabilities. Israel found out and dropped a bomb to stop it. President Bush is not disclosing any facts about it, but it is reported that Israel did warn the USA that North Korea was doing this before they struck deep inside Syria. Israel is being challenged about getting rid of its nuclear capabilities. I'm afraid this might be the only threat over terrorists' heads that Israel has. Israel has never used this capability and we all certainaly hope matters never get that bad, for if it does, Israel would also be hurt due to being in such close proximity to their beligerent neighbors. It's been very helpful to have this threat in their pocketful of ammunition.
Gaza Strip Declared Hostile Territory
The Gaza strip has had both the Fatah and Hamas terrorists, two Palestinian groups wrestling for control of the power in the area. Fatah has taken the responsibility of most of the rockets that were fired from Gaza into Sderot, Israel and the Western Negev region of Israel. They also took responsibility for the attack on Sderot on the day before Rosh HaShanah last week.
Now the UN's human rights chief has said she is gravely concerned at Israel's decision to finally declare the Gaza Strip a "hostile territory." Israel has threatened to cut off the fuel and electricity supplies to the area.
How can anyone expect Israel to continue supplying these things when it is constantly bombed by the terrorists there? Have the powers in charge done anything to stop the bombing? No. The only thing that the people will be affected by and thus realize that their actions are not acceptable is to hold out the electricity and fuel supplies. Israel has discussed all the aspects of how to do this and not hurt innocent people living there. They are not doing this without much thought.
By shooting rockets into Israel, the Gaza strip is showing that they are at war with Israel. Israel must take steps to protect itself and punish the people responsible for the shootings. Does anyone else have a better idea?

Bombing Syria Today
I was surprised to read that Israel bombed Syria today, and Israel isn't talking about it. Before everyone gets on Israel's back about being the first to attack, remember that Syria is under the control of Iran, and Iran has threatened Israel with extinction. Both countries are in preparation for war. I imagine that Israel was on a surveilance mission and got caught by their radar. Israel dumped their bombs in a deserted zone and went home. One cannot live next door to a threatening neighbor without a plan for protection.
