"The operations are being carried out through a variety of repetitive ground incursions, continued air strikes, artillery fire and other military means.
The defense minister also said diplomatic efforts are underway, in parallel to the military operations in Gaza."
A "variety of repetitive" maneuvers: invade, bomb, snipe, bulldoze. Why do they make it sound so boring? Because it's the order of the day. The soup de la semaine. Maybe next week they'll try something new. Olmert said that this war cannot "afford to budget a timetable". Sound familiar?
Enjoy the Summer Rains, Gaza. Raining bombs is better than no rain. They steal your water, and give you Operation Summer Rains in return.
This is an excellent editorial by Gideon Levy in Haaretz. I haven't read anything as lucidly and honestly argued in the Israeli or US press.
