Rocket interceptors deployed in northern Israel

JERUSALEM, May 5- The Israeli military deployed two batteries of the Iron Dome anti-rocket defense system to northern Israel following an escalation in tensions with Syria, local media reported Sunday.

One battery was positioned Saturday night near Haifa, and another on the outskirts of Safed, Israel's Channel 2 Television said on its website.

"Two Iron Dome batteries were positioned in the north as part of routine operational deployment and in line with operational assessments," a military spokeswoman told Xinhua.

She declined to comment on whether the deployment was linked to reports of two alleged Israeli air strikes on Syria in recent days that reportedly targeted Iranian shipments of advanced Fateh-110 missiles for Hezbollah.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday remained silent on his country's alleged involvement in the strikes, but he postponed by several hours a trip to China, in order to convene his security cabinet for consultations on recent developments, Israel Radio reported.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
