"Let's be very clear where the onus lies." That was the statement made by State Department spokesman Mark Toner on who instigated the Israeli air assault that began Wednesday over Gaza and is continuing and escalating as this is being written.

Not that Toner's remarks are anything unexpected coming from this administration or any other U.S. administration for that matter whether it is Democrat or Republican. The "onus" is always placed on the Palestinians who "provoke" the Israeli's to overreact hyper aggressively militarily, beyond any measure considered a "reciprocal response, whenever the Palestinian's take offense and exact revenge against Israel's illegitimate occupation, embargo and apartheid policies.

As I wrote yesterday on the Israeli assault, the idea of Hamas in Gaza somehow a threat to Israel is ludicrous not while the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) has the most modern and sophisticated weaponry in the air and the ground that is unmatched in the entire Middle East.
