The beauty (?) of what is happening, as we speak, in the Middle East is that there is finally a line in the sand. That line being...................ARE YOU WITH THE TERRORISTS OR ARE YOU WITH US? I must say I love this, no more moral equivelency, no more moral inversion, just the truth.
With that in mind, it is interesting to note the latest developments at the world's hottest point. First that the terror groups are using this "downtime" with Israel to regroup and rearm..........something I said was going on all along but here is further proof:
Palestinian militant groups, weakened by more than four years of fighting against Israel, are capitalizing on the relative calm of an informal truce to strengthen their political and military clout. "This calm is not a gift to the occupation. We will work on and prepare ourselves. Disbanding the armed wing of Hamas is absolutely out of the question," said Abu Ubada, spokesman for the Ezzedin al-Qassam Brigades.
A spokesman for Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, affiliated to the mainstream Fatah party, said its militants would integrate into PA security forces without sacrificing the "resistance." "A large number of our fighters already belong to the security services. Joining the security services does not at all signify the end of resistance," said Abu Qussay. "We are ready to fight back at any moment," he warned. "Weapons will remain in the hands of the resistance and we will direct them only against the Israeli enemy." Abu al-Walid from the leadership of Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of Islamic Jihad, said the faction aimed to take advantage of the lull "to prepare our military apparatus to confront any eventuality."

And just as significantly; It seems painfully obvious, that essentially nothing has changed. The rhetoric maybe and the stakes. Iran has nukes and according to the President of Ukraine, the missiles to carry the nuclear warheads. Israel is once again, the canary in the coalmine. But there is no second guessing. No dress rehearsal, this is NUKES................end game.
Yea, the fat lady is singing
