Most people consult the weather to decide on what to wear when they go outside. For Israel, the weather determines how it will go about attacking Palestinians. A Jerusalem Post analysis considers the weather unfriendly to those poor Israeli bombers and jets.
UAV’s and pilots can’t fly under the clouds because they’ll get shot down, and they can’t fly above them because they can’t see through them. And as it is winter, daylight hours are at a premium – providing Hamas rocket crews with even more cover. Clouds and darkness suit Hamas; sunshine, clear skies and dry ground suit the IDF.
Maybe the Israelis should borrow the “cloud-seeding” rockets used by China to keep things sunny during the Summer Olympics.
Perhaps there is no need since Israel, according to the Post article, has seemed to run out of bombing targets in Gaza. They are actually re-striking some already destroyed targets (congrats to American arms suppliers), stalling before they can figure out whether to invade Gaza or not.Filed Under Free Gaza, Gaza, israel, palestine, war crimes, Will
