We are continuing our series of round ups of news and information about the War in Gaza. We have been informed by a number of reliable sources that things are on the verge of really heating up. With that in mind we may slow down a bit so that we can keep up later. We shall see.

This marks installment number 6 about the conflict in Gaza.

In the MSM we have procured the following links for your review and consideration:

The Washington Post Ephraim Sneh explains Why Israel Is Bombing Gaza.

The Jerusalem Post has several articles No tears for Hamas leader in Ramallah, IAF hits cell that fired at Ashkelon and an article in which the Egyptian Foreign Minister says Hamas must stop firing rockets.

Uh oh, CNN reports that Hamas is clamoring for more blood. What a shock, more flowery rhetoric about revenge. Let's not forget that Nizar Rayan was pushing for more suicide attacks. Ever wonder why their leaders don't lead by strapping a bomb to themselves.

The Times Online says that Gaza rockets put Israel’s nuclear plant in battle zone.

From Reuters Palestinian arrested, charged for Denmark shooting.
