Israel's commercial capital is under rocket fire from Palestinian militants in Gaza, its normally nonchalant residents using black humor to disguise the anguish of another open war with Hamas.Tel Aviv, some 70 kilometers north of the Palestinian enclave, is well within rocket range. And since Israel's latest campaign began early Tuesday, Hamas has fired at least six M75 rockets at metropolitan Tel Aviv, one striking open ground and five being intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system. More than 23 years ago, when Iraq's now dead dictator Saddam Hussein fired Scud missiles at Israel in the first Gulf War, young people thronged the nightclubs of Tel Aviv, gas masks within reach.During the 22-day operation, 1,400 Palestinians and 13 Israelis were killed.And in November 2012 another 177 Palestinians and six Israelis were killed during Operation Pillar of Defense. But not everyone in Tel Aviv is in favor of another Gaza campaign.
