The Israeli military is converging on Gaza, as it continues to pummel the Palestinians from air, sea and land.
The Operation, dubbed "Pillars of Defence" - is on the verge of turning into a new invasion, as Tel Aviv says it's prepared to go all the way - under the pretext of self-defence.
3 Israelis and at least 15 Palestinians - including children and a pregnant woman - have already been killed.
Political scientist, activist and author Norman Finkelstein doubts that the current crisis in Gaza will further escalate.
