Oh no you didn't Moon.  You did not just go there.  

That's a "no-go zone".

BANG!

You're dead.

Here's a question Mike.  What would you do if Mexico declared parts of Texas off limits to Texans, didn't tell us where those areas were, and just started shooting Texans if they were seen there?

Probably warn our Texans to stay the hell out of Mexico?

Questions, Reb, should probably avoid suppositions (in so far as that is ever possible).

One thing that I'm not going to suppose is that I'm following your train of thought Ron.  Perhaps you'd elaborate so I can be more clear.

"Israel and its supporters always make it their first priority when Israel launches a new war of aggression to obscure the timeline of events as a way to cloud responsibility. The media willingly regurgitates such efforts at misdirection.

In reality, Israel engineered a confrontation to provide the pretext for a “retaliatory” attack, just as it did four years earlier in Operation Cast Lead. Then Israel broke a six-month ceasefire agreed with Hamas by staging a raid into Gaza that killed six Hamas members.

This time, on 8 November, Israel achieved the same end by invading Gaza again, on this occasion following a two-week lull in tensions. A 13-year-old boy out playing football was killed by an Israeli bullet.

Tit-for-tat violence over the following days resulted in the injury of eight Israelis, including four soldiers, and the deaths of five Palestinian civilians, and the wounding of dozens more in Gaza.

On November 12, as part of efforts to calm things down, the Palestinian militant factions agreed a truce that held two days – until Israel broke it by assassinating Hamas military leader Ahmed Jabari. The rockets out of Gaza that followed these various Israeli provocations have been misrepresented as the casus belli."
