…namely, trash-talking on Twitter between the Israelis and Hamas.
What brought this on was Israel’s airstrike which blew to pieces one Ahmed Jabari, who was the head of Hamas’ military operations in the Gaza Strip. Jabari was a certified villain; he planned the operation to capture Gilad Shalit, the IDF soldier who was held captive from 2006 to October of last year. Jabari also had a big hand in Hamas’ seizing of power in Gaza.

That was Mr. Jabari’s denouement.
And now the missiles are being punctuated with tweets.
Welcome to the 21st Century.
