The pitfalls in having a Maghreb-centered blog are many. I spoke with a Levantine friend who has relatives in “the Cause” and who is pretty knowledgable about that situation. He told me with great confidence early this week that Hezb Allah would have opened the “second front” by next week. Being more interested in other things, I made no effort on that topic: Readers know I have posted very little on the Gaza business. I will wait to until it is over to make major observations. In any event, had I post on this on Monday or Tuesday, I could pretend to have “predicted” the northern front in the most recent Levatine squabble. So I will do so now. If I turn out to be right or wrong, so be it. These rockets are not Hezb Allah rockets, though.
