My only complaint is that Israel did not use 10 bombs for each rocket the paliscum launched at civilians.

At least five Palestinians were wounded, two of them children,

Expect Obama to send in our military to establish a “no-fly zone” after leveling the air defenses of Israel and bombing Tel Aviv.

I’m sure the Arab league will join in the “coalition”.

We must save these poor Rebels.

These young terrorist in training are trained to kill all of us so they are fair game in war. They have been filmed firing katusha rockets and ak-47's and rpg's. All children's programming in pali is anti Christian and Jew... they are taught to hate us and kill us. Screw the pc... we are talking about the survival of western culture here. Not one pali's life is worth the death of Rock-n-Roll... Elvis... Marlyn Monroe... or even Pamela Anderson. These things do not exist where Freedom and Liberty are not to be found... and there is no Freedom or Liberty in caliphate.

Go Israel. Return the favor to these Pali creeps. They slit the throat of your children, murder your citizens and indiscriminately bomb your country. The Paliscum need retribution brought upon them.

moozlum credo: I love you. I will kill you and your children. Boom! Slash!

Death to the blood-lusting Pali criminals.

Let’s see: A brick factory, a mechanic’s shop, and a garage - all used to make rockets and mortar shells used to bombard Israeli.

The Palestinians let their families sleep in these “death factories”? Well, that’s cheaper than a divorce and child-support payments.

Who’s the barbarians?

Why waste time with air strikes? Bring in IDF artillery and pound the Gazans with 155mm and 8-inch artillery fire until the rockets stop. Every time they launch another rocket or mortar, pound the Palis with artillery. Or, better, lob rockets from the M270 MLRS onto Gaza. One M26A1 rocket carries 644 M85 enhanced submunitions. Steel Rain, indeed!

Hamas is making use of the $900M Obama gave them to “rebuild”. More like “re-arm”.

“HUMMM the NYT mentioned the children of the Terrorist.

Have I missed the NYT coverage of the Jewish Children by the Hamas terrorists?”

The distinction is obvious. The IDF was aiming for terrorists, and one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter. Accidentally, while trying to kill freedom fighters, they killed children, thereby being against freedom and childhood. The Palestinians, on the other hand, were aiming to kill children and settlers. One man’s settler isn’t another man’s freedom fighter, and besides, at least they weren’t clumsy. Therefore, Israel is against freedom and childhood, and also has bad aim, while the El Aqsa Martyr’s Brigade is only against the occupation and the children of occupiers, and besides, they’re handy with a knife./sarc

“same old news, unfortunately” To clarify my comment: It’s SOP for the NYT to mention Palestinian children to make Israel appear like a mean old ogre. At last it admitted that the airstrikes were in response to a “barrage” of missiles but didn’t provide a specific number as other media did. And hmmm, the NYT overlooked the slaughter of an infant and toddler earlier this month, solely because the victims were Israeli Jews.

I am soooo sick of the NYT and their fellow travelers who incessantly target Israel for critism.

I wonder what it will take? A direct attack by the Islamofascist, when they feel the time is right to bring the MSM to heel.

I wonder if they think bowing to the Islamofascist will somehow protect them from their rath. Boy are they in for a surprise.

Where was the outrage over the slaughter of the Israeli unarmed family children and babies in their own home?
