This time though it is different.
Something big happened.
Palestine (Gazza) made a massive (in relative terms for that conflict) attack on Israel, this morning.
I thought it was nothing from reading the news headlines but browsing my sources on the Ukraine war, it turns out that there are scores of Israeli dead, soldiers and civilians, and an army camp has been overrun.
Why are the Ukrainians bothered, well it seems that Israel was on the cusp of supplying their famous Iron Dome air defence systems to them, which Ukraine had been begging of them since early on in their war.
The view (from the few sources I generally follow) is that Russia is behind the Palestine attack on Israel, in order to stop Iron Dome and other Israeli military aid to Ukraine happening.
Could just be bollocks of course but the Palestine attack today has been well organised, obviously pre-planned, well co-ordinated and well armed and supplied - and all this under the nose of the Israeli security service who usually have their finger on the pulse about these things.
Also, I know this will sound odd, but today happens to be Putin's birthday, and it seems to be a big thing for significant symbolic events to deliberately take place on the day - for instance Ukraine blew up the Kerch Bridge a year ago today.
I've seen a number of videos of dead Israeli's both military and civilian, captured soldiers and power glider and drone attacks, destroyed Israeli tanks (well one of them at least) and other unpleasantness - but I won't post them up here for two reasons, the first is that some of them really are unpleasant, and if people really wanted to see them, they aren't that difficult to find them themselves. The second is that I simply don't know if they are genuine - ie if the videos are from this morning or from weeks, months or years ago.
Of course an armed civilian militia from Gazza isn't going to defeat the Israel army, so the attack is intended for other reasons - maybe it is linked to potential military aid to Ukraine - but as usual a lot of people are going to die and suffer.
It is hard to imagine that mankind is nearly a quarter of the way through the twenty-first century and we still act as barbarically as we have always done - and I guess always will?
And we think of ourselves as civilised.
