With fighting intensifying between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza, the Arab League on Sunday announced plans to ask the UN to impose a no-fly zone over Gaza.

I am confused. Is this to stop the almost newly recognized country of Palestine from shooting missiles at Israeli school buses?
20 He who testifies to these things says, Yes, I am coming soon.
Maybe NATO will do it. </sarcasm>
why don’t these flea-bitten mutts ask for a no rocket zone over Israel first?
We live in bizzaro-world. Palestinians rape and murder Israeli’s - including babies. Shoot missiles at a school bus. Launch daily attacks on Israel. And THEY want a no fly zone?
This was a bait and switch by the Arab League. They got Libya knowing they were going for Israel.
Much violence will arrive next month. In May the Palestinians are starting “day of rage” - leading up to the U.N. vote to recognize their statehood.
The wave of freedom is coming to what will soon be Palestine.
That is how they see all of this and that is what is happening.
What happens when Hamas violates the no-fly zone by firing rockets into Israel?
You are not confused. The actions in Libya by Obama and the UN were a necessary actrion to establishment the precedent of “protecting a nation’s citizens from their own government”. Now it will be easier to take the UN into Israel under the same protocol - this time to “protect” the Palestinian citizens.
However, I think the French will find enforcing a no-fly zone over Gaza to be much more difficult than enforcing one over Tripoli. The Israeli Air Force is one of the finest on thr globe and their pilots are fearless.
I’m not sure that it is necessary for Israel to fly over Gaza to get much of it’s work done.
And what nation or group of nations is lining up to sacrifice their air forces or naval air forces for this? What a frigging joke.
I have an idea, why don't the arabs just enforce their own "no fly zone" over Gaza. They have enough planes. What was the IAF score against Syria a few years ago? Well, maybe the arabs don't have enough planes (targets).
It was sarcasm
No... to enable them.
Sure, then Israel can get some arty practice hitting the targets that need hitting. Israel must have some tubes that need warmed up and dusted off.
A ‘No Rocket’ zone over Israel would be nice.
I’m certain the aerial vehicles that will be prevented from flying in the Gaza zone will also include the unmanned, missile type. /sarc
It’s too late. The flies have already overrun Gaza. And it’s run by the Lord of the Flies.
for your review & possible ping. Just as many forecast in reference to the “No-fly” zone in Libya, setting a precedent to attack Israel.
What a schmuck Zero is.
It’s to stop the Israelis from responding to missile attacks on school buses.
“Arab League to ask UN to implement no-fly zone over Gaza”
Ah, so Hamas is getting it’s own air force. Folks, ya better be getting reaquainted with the Lord.
The IAF already imposes a no fly zone over Gaza.
There is but one country in the world that might be able to impose a no-fly zone against the IAF: the United States. Even under zero and her thighness, I can’t imagine they would do that. The American people overwhelmingly support Israel, and I suggest that goes double when it comes to defending themselves against that pit of vipers called Gaza.
All the other countries out there are not going to risk their aircraft in a confrontation with the IAF. It would be a suicide mission for most of them and most of the other countries don’t have big quantities of first-line fighters to waste on Israeli target practice. And that goes double for the Arab league states and most of their European lap dogs.
How shocking! Not.
I’d pay good money to see a UN ‘air force’ try to enforce that against the IDF.
I’d pay good money to see Israel rebuff this request by stating they will shoot down any plane from any nation that attempts to impose a no fly zone over THEIR territory!
Why do I feel like everything I was taught as a kid in Sunday School is coming true?
It is just weird.
"In Judah is God known: his name is great in Israel.
In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.
There brake he the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. Selah.
Thou art more glorious and excellent than the mountains of prey.
The stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept their sleep: and none of the men of might have found their hands.
At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.
Thou, even thou, art to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry?
Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still,
When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah.
Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.
Vow, and pay unto the LORD your God: let all that be round about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared.
He shall cut off the spirit of princes: he is terrible to the kings of the earth.
I’d rather implement a continuous 24 hr 7 days a week bombing schedule from now till year end.
This is interesting. I wonder if they can get it passed and who would provide the force to carry it out.

Russia, Iran, Syria. See Ezekial 38.
Possibly. I’m not sure that Russia is listed in Ezekiel 38, but it’s possible. I’m thinking more like Turkey, Iran and Syria, given that Turkey is making a push to become a bigger player in the ME right now.
Israel says new flotilla must be stopped
Of course. The Israeli occupying force do not allow imports or exports through Gaza by land, sea or air.
Yeah, that’s why they want the no fly zone, to arm themselves.
See verses 6 and 15 — “remote parts of the north”. Anything north of the Caucaus Mountains and Black Sea was pretty remote in Ezekial’s day.
Where do I send money for my ticket to watch that show? The ‘Raeli’s don’t actually need much airpower to deal w/Gaza since they have plenty of really nice self-propelled 155’s that can reach out and firmly touch anyplace in what’s left of Gaza. The Turk’s? Erdogan would love to but turning his back on the Kurd’s would be fatal. The Syria’s? Ditto for Baby Basher. He’d love to follow someone else into Israel but if he does he’ll find new tenants in the palace when he gets home. And Iran? They have no transport. They can’t get off their own beach. And BTW they have to get by the US Fifth fleet (read USS Carl Vinson and friends) and I’m pretty sure a fly-by would be fatal. Yeah, there’s a lot of heavy Arab thinking obviously going on but that’s pretty much all that bunch of in-bred pedophiles is good for. -——Please sell me a ticket!!
There goes the other shoe. Plop.
“I am confused. Is this to stop the almost newly recognized country of Palestine from shooting missiles at Israeli school buses?”
Uh, no, I think it’s to prevent Israel from fighting back.
Maybe NATO will do it. </sarcasm>
Lawsy, noooo!/hysterical shrieking and quaking, followed by laughter.
