Code Red Sounded - Gazans Shoot Rocket into Israel
Arutz Sheva ^ | 13/8/11

Posted on 08/13/2011 3:45:19 PM PDT by Eleutheria5

The "Tzeva Adom" Code Red early warning alert system sounded late Saturday night as Gaza residents fired a rocket into Israel. The past month has seen a sharp increase in the number of rocket attacks. The rocket hit an open area of the ​​Ashkelon Coast Regional Council area. There are no known injuries or damage at this time. The short range rockets are often called Kassams, named after Izz ad-Din al-Qassam, a Syrian leader who led riots against the Jewish communities in the land of Israel in the 1920s and 1930s. He also organized riots in Syria and Libya.

Riots? In the 1920s and 30s? But I thought Jooos! and Arabs lived in harm-ony and piece until 1967, when Israel invaded Jordan and Egypt and stole land from the piece-loving Palestinians.

If one day one of those rockets hit the Liquid Chlorine tank at the water treatment plant in the center of Ashklon a lot of people are going to die.

And if the wind is due south, It will be all the inhabitants of the Gaza strip from the outskirts of Ashdod to the Gaza Gate

Howl, O gate; cry, O city, Melted art thou, Philistia, all of thee, For from the north smoke hath come, And there is none alone in his set places.

That is the Arrow, its for nukes not artillery rockets. Israel would go broke trying to stop the daily shelling via anti balistic missile systems.

Personally I think they should just Nuke Gaza and get it over with, but thats just me. Not the Isreali style.

Actually, the full Islamic and American/West European far left pro-Palestinian narrative is as follows : in the 1860s through 1880s European jews had enterred Palestine with the goal of ethnically cleansing the indigenous Muslim and Christian Palestinian people from the land and steal their history and heritage. So then by 1920 the European Jews in Palestine had already committed ladn theft, torture and mass murders of the native Palestinians and so the Arab Palestinians, Muslim and Christian, were simply defending themsevles in the 1920 riots. And before the European Jews came, it was all peace and harmony and brotherhood between the Jews and indigenous palestinians, and the Muslims who ruled Palestine were always benevolent and were the saviors of jews when they werre persecuted by Europeans. And the European Jews who destryoed the existing nation of Palestine forgot this and were not grateful. That is the compelete narrative, just in case you didnt know.

BTW, anyone know what the current death toll is for Israelis murdered by rockets coming from Gaza ? The UN and Human Rights Tribunal viewpoint is that the number of Israelis killed is insignificant relative the the number of Palestinian civilians killed in the fighting in Gaza, so it would be good to have some sort of number so we could actually see what the unbiased results of the fighting are. It is rather difficult, to put it mildly, getting info on how many Israelis have been killed due to Hamas’s deliberate targeting of Israeli women and children, vs the number of Gazans killed by Israeli attempts to fight terorrists, due to said terrorists making no effort to distinguish themselves from civilians.

But the European Jooos! only came suddenly after the Holocaust. Did the Holocaust happen in 1882?

Well no, that is why the updated narrative of the oppressed native Palestinians corrects for that. The far left deniers of Israel’s rights as a state correct and now say that while large numbers of European Jews came after the Holocaust, in order to cleanse the Palestinians and commit the same crimes against the Palestinians the Nazis committed against them, there were many European Jews who came to Israel in the 1860s and later, with the intent of colonizing the land and displacing the indigenous Palestinians who’d been there for hundreds or thousands of years, of course. And then after the Holocaust there were enough European Jews to commit the Nakba and steal the palestinians’ land, history, folklore, national dresses and steal everything else from their culture without coming up with anything original themselves. So to their credit, the modern Jew haters have at least made some corrections to their narratives, realizing their original narrative couldnt stand up to a millisecond of real scrutiny.

Well the narrative doesnt have all the answers. I didnt say it was at this point a logically coherent narrative at all, just less outrageous than the older one-which naturally leads to plenty of outrageousness left.

That is what i thought, and in the world we live in, that’s actually in some ways bad news-the Israelis cant protest about how their women and children are being murdered en mass these days. The Palestinians can go on about how more than 10 Palestinians are killed for every Israeli-so clearly there’s no real reason to stand by Israel. And they can count on the rest of the world to ignore that pesky insignificant little detail about how Israel makes efforts to protect civilians and Pali terror groups dont. Hell, much of the world believes it is Israel that uses human shields and endangers civilians while Hamas is genuinely interested in protecting Palestinian civilians snd only targets Israeli soldiers.

Israel started by having an underground fighting force that did its utmost to protect civilians, while boldly attacking the occupying force right where it was strongest, thereby humiliating it and causing it to lose prestige (see Revolt!). Israeli prestige is built on this practice of humane warfare under difficult situations, and is attacked by the enemy deliberately making it next to impossible not to harm civilians when retaliating. Their prestige, however, is built on something, too. If we attack their prestige, we beat them. But what is their prestige built on? Lies, mostly. But how do you attack a lie. Facts, logic and truth are no help. A lie takes on a life of its own, and to explode it you must rob it of that life force. So what is it? Ponder ponder ponder.

I haven't been able to find a firm number on how many were killed in rocket attacks, but terrorist attacks and "random engagements" have resulted in the deaths of 9,745 soldiers and security forces and 3,971 civilians from 1948 to 2010.

From September 2000 to August 2010, 1,194 Israeli civilians and foreign visitors were killed by terror attacks and another 7,000+ were wounded.

Why yes. There was, in fact, peace on earth up until the evil Jooos stole the land in Israel and started committing genocide against those nice, peaceful Palestinians.

The best way to bring peace to the middle east is through integration and assimilation. Set aside 10 percent of the housing in the west bank settlements for Moslems. Make sure that there isn’t one classroom in Israel that doesn’t have a good mix of Arabs and Jews. Finally give Arabs special hiring preferences at the expense of Jewish men.

This system has worked very well in the USA. Despite having riots in the 1960s Black and Whites get along great. The only interracial hate crimes are committed by Whites and if anyone even says something against another race he is socially ostracized and may even lose his job. It is wonderful! Now we even have a Black president. Yeah!

Wouldn’t it be great if Israel had an Arab prime minister?

Thanks for the info. The view of the masses is this not enough murders for Israel to get worked up over and not a severe enough situation to where they should be firing back. Ergo, the Israelis need to simply let it slide.

Those evil Jooos! covered up their acts of genocide by causing the Arab population to grow as they drained the swamps and irrigated the deserts, killed the locust swarms and routed the mosquitoes, a clever ploy to secretly poison the water and soil so that babies didn’t die of malaria and starvation, and arable land increased. This brought more Arabs into the region, and the Jooos! refused to give them the land that they purchased at inflated prices, leaving only the unregistered, previously worthless land for Arabs to claim as their own from time immemorial, or at least from the time of Salladin. All part of the the evil Jooo! scheme to commit genocide.

To do that, they’d have to increase the Jewish population in Hebron enormously, because at present the Arabs are 97%. To make it 10%, we’d be hard put to find that many Jews willing to live under constant looming threat.

That isn’t how the integration works. They would have to get the Arabs from Hebron and move them to some place where there are more Jews. In the USA, White people were never forced into Black areas. Blacks were always forced into White areas. Now we are all happy. Black boys and White girls are falling in love and having babies. Israel could be like that with the Jews and the Arabs. You just have to force them together and encourage them to mix it up. If they do that, then one day, if they are lucky they could have a half Arab prime minister. Won’t that be special?

It’s actually wise to honor kill daughters when they marry unauthorized males, such as Jooos!, after they give birth. How else will the state socialize the children without the mother’s interference. The only problem is that the girl’s father unnecessarily kills the girl, instead of the state simply confiscating all offspring after giving her full license to be promiscuous. Once all girls, Arab and otherwise, are confiscated at an early age from their parents, and raised collectively, this bloodshed will become unnecessary. What a brave new world we face.

Given the differences in population, the 2000 to 2010 casualties would be equivalent to 50,000 killed and 300,000 wounded here in the US.

Wait a minute.
Won't a policy like that inevitably lead to there being no more Jews?
I mean I'm pretty sure Hitler did something like that so that each successive generation would have less and less Jew blood in it.
That is considered part of the genocidal policy against them then. So what you're proposing is the genocide of the jews. That's very anti-semetic of you.

You know, I’ve never thought of it that way. One could commit genocide just by encouraging mixing. With the higher birth rates of Arabs if just 10 percent of Jews mixed with Arabs, Jews would be overwhelmed and vanish in just a few generations. I wonder if that could happen in Europe with the massive immigration of Muslims there.
