Livni Calls Gaza Airstrikes ‘an Answer’ to Hamas.

Livni is asked, "Why now?"

You can hardly expect her to answer that an election is coming up and that, at the moment, she is trailing Likud.

And she continues to say that Hamas are firing rockets into Israel, which is not true:
Militants from the less influential Islamic jihad group said they fired two rockets at an Israeli community village to the east of southern Gaza Strip and into Sderot city northeast Gaza.

"This shelling comes to emphasize the choice of resistance," the Islamic Jihad's military wing said in a statement sent to the media.

Meanwhile, the armed wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) also claimed responsibility for firing two rockets into northern Israel's coast city of Ashkelon.

But Israel loathe the fact that Hamas are the democratically chosen representatives of the Palestinian people so, for the purpose of Hasbara, every rocket fired will now become a Hamas rocket.
