FYI - this should draw a Hamas response
...and remember the jihad is global.
It’s time for Israel to clean house and launch the BIG ones.

“IDF launches strikes on Hamas targets throughout Gaza”
By JPOST.COM STAFF
I read IDF sources this week that said they would start with surgical air and then put boots/Armor in.
Hamas will put their rockets up as well.
This is the beginning. Next....Iran. 24 days to Obamanation.
In before the “nuke ‘em all” crowd? ;-)
Hamas seems pretty cocky lately from what I have been reading on the internet, so my guess is they are pretty well supplied and ready to go.
A look at Iran
Hamas got their warning — December 25th news articles (sources).
