They've Got a Word for It: "Chutzpa"
Israel is run by a bunch of demented SOBs. After applauding themselves for the Gaza "disengagement", they lost no time in pouring several tons of kerosene on the fire.
- On September 11, Ariel Sharon announced plans for massive new settlement construction on the West Bank, daring Condi Rice and her boyfriend Dubya to contest the program while poking them in the eye.
- On September 7, Israel closed the border crossing at Rafah, telling Palestinians they'd have to transit through Israel to go to Egypt. If and when they finish construction on a new "border terminal" at Kerem, that is.
- Israel announced the construction of a 150-km long electrified fence the length of the Gaza Strip with a 150-meter wide no man's land monitored by drones and cameras.
- Israel will control the Gaza Strip border crossings, coastline and airspace. Machatz 1 patrol drones will overfly the Strip.
