Score! Israeli Airstrike Kills Hamas Commander, 2 Bodyguards
Tammy Bruce ^ | 4/9/11 | Tammy Bruce

The Israeli military said on Saturday a top militant killed in a predawn raid was “directly and physically involved” in the 2006 capture of Gilad Shalit, a soldier Israel believes is still being held in the Gaza Strip.

Tayser Abu Snima, who Palestinian medics said was killed in an air strike on a vehicle along the Gaza-Egyptian border, was a key figure in the Hamas Islamist group that controls the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli statement called Abu Snima a senior Hamas operative in Gaza and said he was “directly and physically involved in the kidnapping of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit,” a soldier who disappeared in a June 2006 cross-border raid.

Bodyguards don't do too much good against an air strike usually.
Another happy ending.

You can flame me all you want. Until we cause significant and abundant collateral damage with civilians we will never get out of the region nor will we accomplish our goals.

Our nip/tuck approach doesn't work. 10 years into this not to mention the Clinton years in Kosov should tell the most stupid amongst us that it doesn't work.

Why would you kill him? Why didn’t they kidnap him, torture him for information on Ghalit then kill him? I would think that would be a priority if they knew who they were killing.

I concur. Until the so-called “moderate Muslims” have more pain caused by letting the radicals slide by than they do from letting the radicals do what they do, nothing will change.

Also, see tagline.

No real need to ask Him to look over Israel - He has already said He would and He is always and constantly faithful. Our prayers will not sway Him in this era of the New Covenant, He has already ordained what will be. All we can do that might be of the slightest use to Him is to express our love and faith in Him and to carry His Word to those around us.

It seems Israel can kill at will. I would love to see where they wipe out like 3 layers of hamas leadership in 24 hours. Through various means. That it happens all at once. BOOM BOOM BOOM.... Then Israel says.... “Need another example?”

I know the world is apparently going to heck in a handbasket . . . but it gives me a modicum of relief to know that Israel is administering justice to some of these baby-killing cowardly SOBs

-----collateral damage with civilians -----

There...... the problem

Even you in your enlightened mind do not state the problem correctly.

In Gaza there are no civilians. There is no difference between the average grandmother, her 9 year old granddaughter and her 27 year old Hamas rocket firing son. Until the old woman quivers in fear for the granddaughter and harangues the son into stopping that crap, she is the enemy.

Being a retired Army Desert Storm vet I appreciate "smart" weapons. They give one shot kill capabilities with minimal threat to friendly forces and civilians.

I think that is exactly why Israel should limit their use. Hamas and Hezzbola purposely pick weapons and targets for the maximum number of innocent casualties. When Israel kills one leader thousands of Palestenians riot, and become potential terrorists.

I say wage Total War, just like the enemy, with the same intent but on a scale they are incapable of. Kill thousnads a few times and see how many hit the streets.

Muslims are like briar bush’s

They have to be trimmed back occassionally or they cause problems.

As long as they are trimmed back they are no problem.

You can bet he would like to enforce a no fly zone on Israel. I suspect that will be coming out of the UN and Obummer will be all in favor of it as his goal is to destroy Israel.

I want to endorse you, not flame you.

Anyone wonder why wars are never won anymore? Why we must go in with an exit plan when the exit plan used to be winning?

It is because they spare so called civilians of which there are very few in Gaza which endorses at a plus 85% rate terrorism against Israeli civilians which they don’t believe exist (see Itamar murders of infants and children, targeting of school bus, and the mass celebrations thereof).

US does the same with its absurd ROE in Iraq and Afghanistan which prioritizes the enemy over our own.

I am sick of it. No point to fighting unless the objective is to win. Winning requires subjugation of the enemy. The enemy is the entire country. We used to know this.
