    Hamas was stupid. If they had even pretended to hide the fact that they were terrorizing Israel, they could have hidden under the U.N.'s skirt for as long as that organization lasts. Instead, they make an overt act of war and Israel will be fully justified in reconquoring the land they recently gave to 'Palestine.'

    Very Machiavellian, both clever and ruthless.

    Holy crap, is this escalating fast or what?? This could turn into a larger war really quick.

    -----------------
    Hamas leaders arrested; Israeli executed
    Wed Jun 28, 10:39 PM ET

    GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Israeli forces arrested the Palestinian deputy prime minister and dozens of other Hamas officials early Thursday and pressed their incursion into Gaza, responding to the abduction of one of its soldiers.

    Adding to the tension, a Palestinian militant group said it killed an 18-year-old Jewish settler kidnapped in the West Bank. Israeli security officials said Eliahu Asheri's body was found buried near Ramallah. They said he was shot in the head, apparently soon after he was abducted on Sunday.

    Israeli warplanes also buzzed the summer home of Syria's president, who Israel blames for harboring hard-line Hamas leaders.

    It's going to get better or a whole lot worse pretty fast from the looks of it. Egypt has bought a pause, but the Israeli troops are regrouping:
