The Day in Israel: Fri Mar 27th, 2009

Click refresh to see new updates during the day

A Sudanese minister’s adviser told Israel’s Channel 10 that targets on or near Sudanese territory were bombed twice, and the second air strike destroyed a ship carrying Iranian arms.

Ha’aretz reports:

Any Israeli decision to attack such a distant target would likely have been based on the belief that Iran could deliver arms into Gaza, possibly including 70-kilometer-range Fajr rockets. That range would allow Hamas operatives to strike into the heart of Israel, Tel Aviv, from their Gaza bases.

Meanwhile, Hamas has denied the convoy was carrying arms to Gaza. As if they would be truthful about it.

Updates (Israel time; most recent at top)

11:43AM: Invest in Israel and take advantage of our negative interest rates! (hat tip: Avri)

interest-rates

10:36AM: US officials have confirmed that the IAF bombed a convoy of trucks in Sudan, and there had been intelligence reports that an operative with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps had gone to Sudan to coordinate the weapons transfer effort.

 

8:40AM: Blood boiling time: Here is George Galloway speaking to a welcoming audience at Rutgers University.

There is so much to rip apart here, but those patience-challenged among you can pay special attention to Galloway saying his banning from Canada may bring down the Canadian government – followed by some phrase in Arabic (4:00), as well as the blatant lie that he is not a Hamas supporter (7:45), despite all the pictures, videos and news stories I have posted on here that show otherwise.

There is also the assortment of usual lies, such as Gaza being the most densely populated place on Earth (yeah right), and Israel not allowing Gazans to flee (bull excrement).

6:08AM: According to an unconfirmed Reuters report, Israel has given Hamas a revised list of palestinian prisoners it is willing to release in exchange for Gilad Schalit.

Meanwhile yesterday, a senior Palestinian official told Hizbullah’s Al-Manar TV station that “great progress” had been made.
