Meantime violence continuing to rage near the Gaza Strip Israel.
Bombing targets again today in Gaza hitting dozens of suspected missile sites in a bid to end rocket fire which continues to plague mostly so there.
And -- -- -- cease fire talks brokered by Egypt are still ongoing and Israel says it prefers diplomacy -- an invasion.
Of -- our next guest though says all this has much to do with Iran and is anything else KT McFarland.
Former assistant secretary defense Fox News contributor -- -- day in which.
On the street around us as we're talking -- stock market is off to the races seemingly on bothered by what's going on overseas but what do you make of at all it's.
You know in this is not the typical.
Gaza and Hamas slob a couple of missiles against Israel -- Israel goes in depth and that's the standard operating system in the Middle East.
This is different.
And this is potentially much -- very much worse why because it's all about around.
Israel's goal and this is to take out that 101000.
Missiles that are in Gaza but they've been stockpiling.
They can read that are capable of reaching Jerusalem -- reaching Tel Aviv.
-- I want to take him out now.
Because -- six months from now they want that option of being able to have a preemptive strike against Iran's nuclear sites and not have to have retaliation.
Because how -- Iran retaliate by unleashing 101000 missiles on it but global Israel or would Israel sent troops.
If they can't get the missiles that they can't get beyond -- that they arsenals.
Where the missile batteries I think this earth does not want to get bogged down in the war.
They don't want us that I want to fight village to village house to house looking for these vessels that they can take them out by air.
-- -- airplanes or missiles at our preferred to do that and then stand what.
The US involvement -- what should the US involvement in all this for example in the immediate.
Conflicts John McCain senator John but I suggested over the weekend that the president send -- Bill Clinton to help them broker peace or we're never negotiate.
And then longer term with -- what's the US.
Rule and all this -- you out.
Then the problem is that Israel back gonna stop and tell and it should stop until I guess where those missiles so anybody trying to broker a deal before that happens I think won't work.
But the key -- this is it may be all about Iran but the key is -- is Egypt Egypt.
You know we hear each of the forty years ago signed a peace treaty with Israel and for forty years I haven't -- -- each -- And for forty years Egypt has been taken out of different each -- -- that different Egypt because it's -- Muslim Brotherhood each of their cousins the Muslim Brotherhood Hamas on the Gaza Strip.
Want them to get involved.
So let's -- all going to be about Egypt an.
If it somehow I joined the -- with the Muslim Brotherhood goes against his her breaks the peace treaty America's got to cut off fade as well a lot of other countries and they need that -- how does it fall you're pretty I think Egypt tries to walk -- down a metal they do a lot of talk talk talk say we're support in the Muslim Brotherhood they may open up.
That the border between Egypt and the Gaza Strip but I don't think they get involved -- -- division sort of between what the president was with prime minister was saying and lastly just yeah our the president of Egypt was saying -- miners died in a prime ministers and we're trying to birchard BO.
I think that the Egyptian president worries that the weight he came to power with they -- -- last dictator right -- he doesn't look sympathetic to the Islamist cause.
An anti Israel there -- the people that Islamist parties and Egypt are gonna say.
Yeah no I track aren't as always -- uninteresting again the stock market up as much as it is here in the US Obama happening of them thanks for coming here thanks -- --
