Chemical Warfare

Since the recent attack, in which two IDF soldiers were killed and Shalit was kidnapped, the Israeli cabinet have been discussing a suitable response.
"We will respond, and the response will be mighty. It won't be an operation of one or two days. A border has been crossed."
- Olmert
As the operation begins and the rhetoric grows, Fatah announces its recent weapon developments:
"With the help of Allah, we are pleased to say that we succeeded in developing over 20 different types of biological and chemical weapons, this after a three-year effort."
- Fatah leaflet
They continue...
"We say to (Prime Minister Ehud) Olmert and (Defense Minister Amir) Peretz: Your threats of invasion do not frighten us. We will surprise you with new weapons you have not faced until now. As soon as an IDF soldier sets foot on Gazan land, we will respond with a new weapon."
Update 01:
"A spokesman for gunmen in the Gaza Strip said they had fired a rocket tipped with a chemical warhead at Israel early on Thursday. The Israeli army had no immediate comment on the claim by the spokesman from the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, an armed wing of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah movement."

Yup, the Palestinians have said they at least want chemical weapons. Ordinarily, this would be a big hullaballoo, but because we're only talking Israel/Jews, it doesn't matter.

Moreover, they claim to have fired one today:

If they did, Gaza will not be there by tomorrow night.

These people really ARE insane. Is there such a thing as testosterone poisoning?
