27-Mar-11: The more things change...
The French have a saying that the more things seem to have changed, the more they actually remain the same. We have a sense that this is the case in and around Gaza where the Hamas terrorist regime raised the stakes higher and higher by firing missiles into Israel and then complained about Israel hitting back. When it happened in 2009, the Qatar-based satellite news network Al-Jazeera interviewed an Arabic-speaking IDF serviceman from the Spokesperson's Bureau who, in our view, spoke plainly and effectively, saying things that we wish were better understood by the other side. We have just watched it again, this time with English sub-titles, and it seems to be painfully relevant to the situation unfolding in the south of Israel today. See if you agree.
