Next Nobel?

The best reporting on Gaza is from Al Jazira English. The blond anchorwoman called Julie? is really good. By contrast the BBC has really been lame.

And the quote of the day, by the former political adviser of Olmert: (I paraphrase) "We are doing this for the good of the people of Gaza, so that they start caring more about building their industry and business than their resistance. We will bomb Gaza into development."

I knew Israel loved bombing countries back in time, but this is the first time it offers people a missile-fueled leap towards development.

Guess who's getting the next Nobel Peace Prize.

Olmert's bombing countries into development is a novel approach!!! Perhaps the South can also bomb the North to help ease the current recession...

Lamia Ilmar from Cairo

"Bombing into development...." They must have read Naomi Klein's The Shock Doctrine but as a textbook instruction manual, not as a warning....
