"Attacking Israel on a near daily basis does nothing to help Palestinians in Gaza nor to move the Palestinian people any closer to achieving self determination and independence."

Comments like these don't rise to the level of bad fiction. What's happening in Gaza is very real. Since December 27, 2008, Israel murdered well over 1,500 Gazans, injured around 6,000, and caused widespread destruction of non-military related sites.

PA UN ambassador Riyad Mansour said:

"Once again the international community is witness to Israel's malicious onslaught, using the most lethal military means and illegal measures against the defenseless Palestinian civilian population." 

"A direct firm message must be sent to Israel to cease immediately its military campaign against the Palestinian people and to abide". by its obligations under international law." 

"The Israeli occupying forces are now mobilizing on the ground as we speak. Fear and panic are spreading among the Palestinian civilian population."

Israel perhaps is readying a large-scale invasion. The Palestine News Network (PNN) reported Israeli paratroopers and Givati Brigade members heading for Gaza's border. IDF officials said Israel "will do whatever is needed to restore calm to Israeli towns in the south."

PNN said IDF forces held training exercises in recent weeks. They're preparing for a possible Gaza offensive. Increasingly it looks likely. Military commanders said its scale will exceed Cast Lead.

Netanyahu addressed Israelis on nationwide TV. He said Israel is prepared and ready for a large-scale offensive. 

In his November 14 press conference, Obama said nothing about Israeli aggression. He told Netanyahu and Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi by phone that Israel has the "right to self-defense."

State Department spokesman Mark Toner said the following:

"We strongly condemn the barrage of rocket fire from Gaza into southern Israel, and we regret the death and injury of innocent Israeli and Palestinian civilians caused by the ensuing violence." 

"There is no justification for the violence that Hamas and other terrorist organizations are employing against the people of Israel. We call on those responsible to stop these cowardly acts immediately." 

"We support Israel's right to defend itself, and we encourage Israel to continue to take every effort to avoid civilian casualties."
