Ne'eman: Egyptian Policy in the Gaza Strip

Chodoff: The Children of Gaza
It is unfortunate that the world's humanitarian organizations have chosen to ignore the greatest case of child abuse in recent history, continuing to focus on the Palestinian claims of massacre in Jenin (alongside their boasts of bitter street battles in that city) while the ongoing violence in Gaza has drifted out of the focus of the news media.

There is a saying in the army that the "excuse stage" immediately follows the "failure stage."

Chodoff: Rockets From Gaza
Yesterday Hamas terrorists demonstrated the range of their new Qassam rocket, launching a few into the Israeli city of Ashkelon. With a range of 9 km, the new Qassam threatens an area considerably greater than the older, shorter range version.
