    Reports are sketchy, but my prediction is that this will be where Israel loses its patience.

    Looks to be 2 dead and 11 injured. In all honesty, I don't know that they'll do anything different. They should, but I think international pressure will keep the response measured.

    I just thought it would exceed 30 casualties. Israelis got lucky.

    Does desensitisation ever start to kick in, even for such horrendous occurrences. I think it does to an extent atleast. But there going to be a final straw someday.
