What You're Not Hearing On The News

You've probably heard that Hezbollah hit an Israeli ship with a cruise missile right? But did you know that they hit an Egyptian freighter first? Why haven't we been hearing more about this? By the way, do you know the difference between a rocket and a missile? A rocket is a self-propelled munition with no guidance capability, while a missile has guidance capability and is a state-sponsored weapon. And Hezbollah has them. The trail leads straight to Damascus and Tehran.

I don't know if you have seen this.

Yes, I read about the Egyptian vessel but I have to decide what not to post rather than the other way around (on my News Headlines).

The MSM is trying to win this war for the enemy.

I don't buy all of that, Scott but it was very interesting. Thanks for sharing that.

I hear ya, Felis.... and you're so right.

I hadn't heard about that Egyptian freighter! I could make some hay with that by citing "Allah's will." **spit**

i don't think the attack on the vessel was deliberate and for all i know the egyptians forgave the incident.

i don't know if i am over analyzing this, but i want to know why hezbollah is focusing the bulk of their strikes on haifa.

Sigh AOW.....yep.

DM, it wasn't deliberate on an EGYPTIAN...they were aiming for an Israeli ship! As for why Haifa, it's cause it's the closest city with the highest population, hence more Jews to kill.

I would just add a few comments about why Haifa is being attacked. As Esther pointed out, it's because of its location and population. However, Haifa is one of the most ethnically mixed cities in Israel, and so there's no way in hell those savages from Hezbollah can even be sure they'll only kill Jews. We have to remember that they don't give a shit about human life period. And just like the suicide bombers who detonate themselves on buses in certain parts of Israel, where they're almost as likely to kill an Arab as a Jew, their aim is to frighten and demoralize all Israelis. After all, if they were only concerned with killing Jews, they would have been blowing themselves up in synagogues (although I'm not sure how many Israelis they'd find there). In fact, the one attack where they did seem to single out Jews was at the hotel in Netanya where a Passover seder was being held. But, even then, a number of Arab workers were employed there.
