Status Quo Update - everything remains the same

And just in case you thought all things were quiet from the Gaza Strip. Ynet News:

Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas' military wing claimed responsibility for the mortar shells fired at Israel Wednesday morning. The shells exploded near the border fence in the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council

No reason for the mortar shells were given so I expect it’s the old standby – because the Jews are over there. And remember the UN just released a report highly critical of Israel’s conduct of Operation Cast Lead based mostly on unsubstantiated claims and allegations from Gazans. The UN report was mostly silent on Hamas’ conduct during Operation Cast Lead and deftly avoided all the evidence which would cast Hamas in a less than a stellar light. No doubt the UN will conveniently ignore this barrage just like all the other barrages…
