Israeli assault on Palestinians: Live Coverage

04:56pm

Elliot Abrams, former American diplomat and staunch ally for the Zionist state, whipped out a piece for the right-wing Council of Foreign Affairs magazine.

From the headline to the conclusion, the article is a stellar work of recycling the Israeli position.

Here's a peek:

When increased levels of rocket fire began about a week ago, Israeli prime minister Netanyahu responded with restraint. He sent clear messages to Hamas in public statements, and via Turkey, Jordan, and Egypt, that he wanted no war, and no incursion into Gaza; if the rocket attacks ended, this confrontation would be over.

But Hamas chose to increase the pace of firing, guaranteeing an Israeli response.
