Tehran-based PressTV reported "Gazans angered by US plan to send smart bombs to Israel."
They're "infuriated" that the Obama administration is selling more J-DAM or Joint Direct Attack Munitions, which rely on precision guidance to hit their targets and proved so effective against Hamas and its allies in Operation Protective Edge in Gaza this summer.

It is a fitting response to all the public speculation about what will come out of the Iranian nuclear negotiations that are supposed to be completed by November 24.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as gone into overdrive in messages to leaders trying to hammer out a deal with Tehran: the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China, German and the European Union.
President Obama’s letter and personal appeal to Ayatollah Ali Khameni, Iran’ supreme leader, was a tactical mistake. In pushing for a resolution of the negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program and suggesting a chance for the U.S. and Iran to cooperate in countering ISIS (the Islamic State), the president showed his desperation to achieve an agreement, weakening his position as the Nov. 24 deadline approaches.
One month away from the Nov. 24 deadline on the talks between the U.S. (and its allies) and Tehran over Iran’s nuclear program, the two sides appear to be far apart and an agreement unlikely. That would be good news, given that the alternative — a deal that has Iran reduce its operational centrifuges but keeps it on the threshold of producing a nuclear bomb — is far worse.

Rather it has been a convenient excuse for Arab leaders to fail to give their own people freedom and respect their basic human rights.
