Today convoys carrying tens of thousands of Israeli soldiers rolled toward the Gaza border.  Palestinian militants fired rockets at the holy city of Jerusalem, which shows an expanded capability of their range vs. previous years.

Yesterday the Israeli government authorized the call up of 75,000 reservists, a move that points to the addition of boots on the ground to the current air campaign.

    Just go to the source. Bomb Iran. Without Iran, Hamas and other groups would not be getting these rockets with expanded range. Israel doesn't need to "invent" justification to do any of this. Hamas is supplying justification for them.

    The Jews are war criminals with no regard for Muslim life. The Israeli Army battle staff should all be prosecuted and incarcerated in the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity and genocide.
