Sorry for never pointing out Bush is in the Middle East, attempting to resolve this Israel/Palestine mess. Anyway...
"Earlier Wednesday, an Israeli airstrike in northern Gaza killed two Palestinians and wounded four others, a move the Israeli army said was taken in response to Palestinian militants who had bombarded the rocket-scarred southern Israeli city of Sderot with rocket and mortar fire."
It's like two year olds complaining to their mommy that "well, he started it!" "No! He started it!" I do support Israel, but this back and forth is getting irritating.
"...he said that both sides 'are very seriously trying to move forward' on a deal."
Not that it will ever work. They've been in negotiations since Israel was created after WW2.
Read all about it.
