via Yglesias, Israel has started targeting large trucks in Israel because they might be carrying missiles.

Meanwhile, the Israelis are telling the Lebanese in the south of the country to evacuate - already, 500,000 have left their homes in a country of 4 mililon, or the equivalent of 37.5 million American refugees.

Even worse, the "evacuation" of south Lebanon is exactly what Juan Cole described as most likely to fan arab paranoia and hatred - the belief that Israel covets the Litani river and its waters.

In short, things are getting worse.
