“Israel allows clothes into Gaza as another
April 6, 2010
Israel on Friday threatened wide-scale military action against the Gaza Strip after launching a string of air strikes in response to rocket fire from the Hamas-run Palestinian enclave. Deputy Prime Minister Silvan Shalom warned of a new offensive on the coastal territory unless the attacks were halted. In 1956, Israel went to war without American consent. Ben-Gurion thought that his collusion with the UK and France was enough. He was vastly mistaken. A hundred hours after telling us the Third Kingdom of Israel had come into being; he announced with a broken voice he was going to evacuate all the territories just conquered. President Dwight Eisenhower, together with his Soviet colleague, had submitted an ultimatum, and that was the end of the adventure. Since then, Israel has not started a single war without securing the agreement of Washington. Obama has promised to get tough about Israel, not for the sake of the Jews or Israel itself, but for the sake of Israel as a military base.
