More Updates

While Jameel gets some much needed rest, he asked me to provide some updates. My Hebrew, while decent, is not spectacular, so I will be sticking only to updates I understand - I don't want to provide incorrect information.

9:08am: Livni will be meeting with the UN about a ceasefire soon. Rockets continue to rain on the North, while Kassams hit near Gaza. Meanwhile, 4 terrorists were stopped by IDF forces near Avivim in the North after crossing the border.

7:36am: The French are packing out of Beirut in large numbers.

7:32am: The Iranian FM, after talking to Syria, thinks a cease-fire followed by a prisoner swap is "fair." [Ezzie: Go to hell.]

7:23am: About 30 people were hurt by Kaytusha attacks throughout the night.

4:00am: Oil prices have dropped - this could either mean that the market does not think Iran will be drawn into the war, or that the market thinks that the oil supply will be positively impacted by it.

3:03am: Israel bombed a 2 Lebanese army bases east of Beirut.

1:04am: There is concern that terror organizations smuggled in Ecstasy laced with cyanide into Israel.

12:27am: The reason the G8 has been backing Israel is because Lebanese PM Siniora asked them to. "The Israelis can do to Hizbollah what I cannot do; let them finish the war."

12:00am Israel Time: Some sort of aircraft or flying object has entered Israeli airspace in the North. The entire North is on alert. [Speculation from Jameel: Perhaps something "new", or an ultralight with terrorists on board?]
Wherever I am, my blog thinks about Eretz Yisrael

Whoa. That stuff about the Lebanese Prime Minister'd be great if it's actually true.

Ezzie said...

Supposedly is, just being kept quiet...

i looked at the report about the lebanese pm. what is this site that you took it from? is there any reason to assume this is an accurate report?

Ezzie said...

Ari - They've been right almost all the time since the war started... I put the link in though for people to read themselves.

The Lebanese are kind of pissed at the hizballah right now. That's a pretty accurate report whether it was actually said out loud or not.
