So much for the Arab Spring

"Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak signaled that Israel is ready to escalate its military operations against Gaza after at least one long-range missile was fired at Tel Aviv by Palestinian militants..... Barak said earlier this week that Israel may carry out a ground operation in Gaza. In December 2008, Israeli tanks and soldiers entered Gaza and more than 1,100 Palestinians and 12 Israelis were killed in the subsequent fighting.....Hamas seized control of Gaza from Abbas’s Fatah party in 2007, ending a partnership government a year after winning parliamentary elections. The group refuses to recognize Israel or any prior deals signed with it. The group’s political leader Khaled Meshaal said at a Islamic conference in Sudan today that “Israel’s days in Palestine are numbered.”
