P.S.: just because you're wondering: no, I'm not a Jew. My long Germanic surname is Pennsylvania Dutch, not Yiddish. I don't agree with every Israeli policy *cough*settlements*cough* but my reading of history is that the Jews, like other nations, need a geographic state to survive and prosper, and have the right to defend that state when it is attacked.
This conflict is notable for new technology. For the first time, Hezbollah has missiles that can hit Haifa from inside Lebanon. Probably made in Iran. Gee, thanks, Iran. And a remotely-piloted drone hit an Israeli warship, did substantial damage, and apparently killed four sailors (one body recovered, three still missing). No terrorist group has used unmanned drone planes before. Wonder when they'll have one that can cross the Atlantic?
Unclear whether the drone was also Iranian, or homebrew. A second drone hit a nearby Egyptian cruise ship, apparently by accident. Oops.
Terrorist groups manufacturing sophisticated aerial drones in the basement has a strong Singularity odor about it, doesn't it?
It's time for: Ten Signs the Singularity Has Arrived.

meaning: foundation stone
基礎 == kiso == (noun) foundation, basis
Left radical is 'stone' (石) The right radical is a Non-General Use character which now means 'cane/rod', but originally referred to the foot of a tree. Its components are a doubling of 'tree' (木), and 'foot' (足). It acts phonetically to express 'place/lay', and also expresses the idea of the 'foot' of something. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Foundation stone laid at foot of two trees.'
