Hand me those earplugs

Well, it seems that after a minor lull, the Israeli Air Force has decided to officially step up its use of the terrorising sonic attacks today and the next few days, according to Yediot Newspaper. I figured as much when last night we were shocked awake four times throughout the night, from shortly after midnight all the way to 6am. The sonic attacks continued with ferocity over gaza city, each larger and louder than the previous. The last one had my ears ringing, and was particuarly terrifying in its strengh-I could feel the waves. I'm trying to figure out if there some pattern to it all-some method in this madness. So far, I gather not.

Do you think there is anybody that can bring the gunmen under control ? they seem to be a major spanner in the Palestinian works.

Israel instituting a no-breathing zone in the area where rockets are being fired should help.

HI EL Haddad,

Although we may be on different sides of this conflict, I do hope for peace in the region. All sides have suffered such great losses.

what are your thoughts on Palastinian leadership and its failure to bring peace?

Are Palestinians angry that Arafat said "NO" to Clintos last attempt at peace.

I'm afriad I'll to correct Zak - it's a last ditch effort before a major escalation in violence, which will be a lot worse than scary sonic showwaves. thousands of Iraqis died in "Shock and Awe" operations. Gaza suffered a lot, but so far was spared a major military operation.

However - it seems that the Islamic Jihad doesn't care for anything less than a Faluja style battle.

I would like to suggest something for you to read. It's a post by an Israeli blogger. You may not agree with everything he says, but I think you'll find it an interesting read. He discusses the issue of Israel's options in dealing with terror.

I would like to hear your reactions to this piece when you get a chance. Thank you.

I have absolutely no comment-I know all too well of AbbaGav's tirades against Islam and against Palestinians. "Interesting" isn't exactly the word I'd use, more like "hateful" and "ignorant". Other than that, I will not waste my energy replying to his nonsense.
