re: #1 researchok

Interesting, it looks like the Daily Star pulled the earlier news story from its site. The link you posted refers to two rockets fired from Lebanon and aimed at Israel (but which, fortunately for all involved, did not reach their intended target).

Here is an an article posted at a different news site concerning the continued post-"cease fire" firing of missiles from the Gaza Strip into Israel:

Rockets fired from Gaza continued to land in Israel on Wednesday night following the commencement of the US-Egyptian brokered cease-fire between Israel and Hamas. Some "Code Red" sirens sounding in the South appear to be set off by celebratory rocket fire in Gaza, Channel 2 News reported. Israel Radio reported that some 20 rockets were fired from Gaza since the announcement of the cease-fire.

[Link: www.jpost.com...]

And for those who do not trust any Israeli news source:

Even after the deadline passed, a dozen rockets from Gaza landed in Israel, all in open areas, a police spokesman said.

re: #2 sliv_the_eli

Thanks for the clarification.

It bears remembering the Star isn't exactly the Times.

They have to answer to the powers that be in Lebanon.

Indeed. But Hamas is still demonstrating its usual perfidy.

re: #3 researchok

True, although in my experience, I have generally found their news reporting to be fairly professional. Indeed, I have often re-posted at LGF news stories about Middle Eastern affairs that I have found at the Daily Star even before they are available from US news sources. That is not to say that they are pro-Israel -- far from it (in fact, I am not sure that Daily Star columnist Rami Khouri has ever written about any subject without criticizing Israel). However, the Daily Star has generally not shied away from reporting hard news (see, for example, the article at this link, which openly discusses Hamas' summary execution of six alleged "collaborators" and the barabaric dragging of their corpses through the streets: [Link: www.dailystar.com.lb...] which is why I found the apparent scrubbing of this news piece to be somewhat curious.

It's the old double-standard yielded as a weapon against Israel. As long as the Palestinians are viewed as poor poor victims of the evil Zionist regime, this ignorant mentality will persist.

Now watch as the regular players turn a blind eye.
