    Latest Report: Hizbullah rocket fire misses target, strikes civilian ship


    A Hizbullah rocket barrage aimed at Israeli warships missed their target and struck a civilian merchant ship in the Mediterranean Sea, Israeli military officials said early Saturday.

    The officials did not know the nationality of the ship, or whether there were casualties. The officials could not be identified under military regulations. The rocket attack occurred late Friday at the same time Hizbullah struck an Israeli warship, causing heavy damage to the vessel. (AP)

    You are correct that Israel could do serious damage to Egypt, but the
    reason I am expecting some action(at least vocal protest) from Egypt is
    the large number of radical Islamic groups in Egypt, they have been very
    active inside the country in the past few years and I figure the
    Egyptian goverment will have to protest to some degree to keep them
    satisfied.

    at the silence from Egypt, I would have figured they would be protesting
    some.

    - A missile fired at an Israeli naval vessel off Lebanon early on Saturday missed the target and hit an Egyptian boat instead, the Israeli army said.

    "There has been another attempt to attack an Israeli naval vessel. It missed our ship and instead hit a different ship, an Egyptian vessel," an Israeli army spokeswoman said.

    Just by degrees - IMO they lump Israel and the US together - we are the Great Satan and the protector on the Zionists....and have been for decades....

    IMO it's not a case of somehow seeing Israel's demise as the greater goal - just that at the moment they are an easier target to reach - no doubt any number of terrorist groups are working overtime to strike US interests - both here in the US and overseas...

    I've read that Israeli intelligence knows where Saddam's WMDs have been hidden in Lebanon or Syria. Would it be too outrageous to think that those cache could be targeted as well?
    Actually if Israel knows where they are it would make perfect sense - there are already many reports of Israeli air force strikes on Hezbollah's rocket storage locations
