Israel is in a world of isolation and panic over the impending creation of the state of Palestine. They cannot thwart this effort politically. If I were head of intelligence and asked to come up with a plan to shelve the idea and make the Pals look like the negative party that cannot be negotiated with nor lived with, I would be doing exactly what has been happening this past week. You know Israel has operatives in Gaza and possibly within Hamas and islamic jihad. They pulled the strings and the mortars and rockets fell. As for this bus bomb, Pals normally commit suicide in a bomb attack to ensure fatalities. This smells like an inside job to try and sway int'l opinion back in Israel's favor. Yes I do believe Israel will kill it's own citizens to achieve broader political capital...that's my opinion and I wouldn't be surprised if I'm spot on.
