Posted on 08/20/2011 2:37:21 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
Israel Air Force fighter jets eliminated a terrorist squad in northern Gaza late Saturday afternoon.
Military sources confirmed a direct hit on the terrorist cell, which had apparently just finished launching a mortar attack on southern Israel.
Israeli fighter pilots on Friday night attacked two terrorist tunnels, a weapons factory in southern Gaza and a terrorist training center as well. Direct hits were confirmed on all targets, and all IDF personnel returned safely to their bases.
The IDF will not tolerate any attempts to harm Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers and will respond with determination to any attempt to use terror against the State of Israel, said the IDF Spokesman in a statement.
The IDF holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.
The Hamas rulers of Gaza took responsibility for a lethal barrage of Grad Katyusha missiles on the southern cities of Ofakim and Be'er Sheva Saturday night. One man died in the attacks, and numerous others were wounded, including a four-month-old baby and an eight-year-old girl.

“Israel Air Force fighter jets eliminated a terrorist squad in northern Gaza late Saturday afternoon”
Will there be any “congradulation” statement from the Obama Whitehouse in the take down of these jihad waging terrorists?
Don’t wait for it.
When it comes to our ally Israel there is always a double-standard of hypocrisy by other nations when it comes to Israel going after the terrorists.
It seems to me that the next time the IDF enters Gaza, it should emplace some special detonation charges along the most heavily tunneled routes that would make the ground semi permanently unstable to tunneling.
The fine art of sandhogging, or tunnel digging, is a lot harder than it might seem on the surface. Some types of ground are just not worth even trying to tunnel through, for lots of different reasons.
The way the Israelis would do this would be to take well digging equipment into Gaza, burrow down a hundred or more feet, and plant specialized charges, that could likely make tunneling very problematic in a large, 3D area around the detonation.
I checked and Gaza is only 136sq miles. With that said a couple dozen MOABs could take care of the terror problem for good.
Exactly. Wipe them out. MDK, baby.
>One man died in the attacks, and numerous others were wounded, including a four-month-old baby and an eight-year-old girl.
The muzzy scum really should try harder to get baby sitters instead of bringing the kids to their bomb making and terror training
jobs. I suppose teenage girl sitters are off limits since they can’t leave home without a male escort. That still leaves 70% of adult males
that are not working while the other 30% do their terror jobs.
How these women abusing, child killing lazy paliscum get so much sympathy from so many morons is beyond me.
Oh, hell no. He’ll pull a Colin Powell and waggle his finger at the Israelis saying that this action “doesn’t help the peace process.”
I/we need a good word besides "Palistinian's" to call these liars, I mean they're not Latin speakers, no one in the ME likes them but uses them and everyone in the world is whining about disproportionate responses and genocise when it comes to Israel, so what is a good name for these lazt arsed desert fleas?
In which case the IDF should eliminate Hamas starting at the top, following the chain of command downward...
------RAFAH, Gaza Strip A jackhammer pounded large steel beams side by side into the sandy soil on the Egyptian side of Gaza's border, putting in place an underground wall that could shift the balance of power in this volatile area.
Once completed, the steel barrier would cut off blockaded Gaza's last lifeline and by slicing through hundreds of smuggling tunnels under the nine-mile Gaza-Egypt border could increase pressure on the territory's Hamas rulers to moderate.
Exactly. Stop handling these vermin with kid gloves.
I sense I good way to pay off some debt...Pay per view.
YES...or carrion as another great poster states. I suppose we can call them “shrapnellites.” Not too PC are we? But honest!
Hee hee , nice, and it’s biblical!
WHEN did this “Egyptian subterranean wall” happen? I don’t recall hearing it ANYWHERE. This happen back in Mubarak’s time? I thought the Egyptians had opened their borders with Gaza wide open... In fact, I KNOW they did when Mubarak fell. What’s the REAL story behind this, because it sounds like propaganda....?
The Egyptians installed a sheet piling subterranean wall

If only Bibi were our Prez. (sigh)
Why not? The Natural Born Citizen clause is no longer an issue, thanks to the pioneering civil wrongs work of Barack Hussein Obama.
Bibi is the complete package. Compare that to our affirmative action “president” who has always been a ward of the state with no accomplishments of his own other than inciting others to unrest as a “community organizer”. Obama’s flash mobs are now destroying the inner cities they are imprisoned in by the liberal dems that oversee these hellholes.
This is a good idea, because if they make a hole through the metal, the harmonics will change.
It's called a foolaide dispenser, aka TV.
-——WHEN did this Egyptian subterranean wall happen? -——
January 2010........ it was discussed here in detail
Kill all they send until they stop sending them.
Then kill those who give the orders, and then those who support them. Make it PERSONALLY painful and with a price.
Pretty soon, they’ll stop sending them.
Israel gave up Gaza to these animals in the hope of gaining peace; this is the result.
There is NO bargaining with those that want to kill you and wipe out your way of life.
What a great idea for our Mexican border!
A dead terrorist is a good terrorist
Land for peace never has worked...never will...... "Peace" to a Muslim is Peace only thru submission to Islam. There is no other form of Peace.
Any one who believes Muslims will ever lay down their arms needs to remember it's impossible...they are a people of war....and if they have no other nation to battle they will fight one another. Britian shoud have just left them to their own devices long ago....they didn't even know there was oil under their feet.
Golda Meir was correct. There will never be peace in the Middle East as long as the “Palestinians” hate the Jews more than they love their children.
This is a Grad Barrage. Just thought y'all would like to see what is being fired into the Isreali towns from the land given for peace under direction of the United States State Department.
I have lived in Egypt too... Trust me, this is to force Hamas to pay Baksheesh. Ie. Tunnel Taxes.
But Palestinians arn't stupid, just evil. They will dig 10 foot deeper rather than pay the taxes on the munitions.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Bibi is great, if you like the idea of negotiating with people that want to kill you and possibly giving up more land for "peace." While he's obviously preferable to people like Rabin and Barak and Peres, for the citizens of Israel, he still leaves a lot to be desired. Sometimes I wonder what Israel would look like today if PM Sharon had not suffered that stroke.
PM Sharon forcibly evacuated Gush Katif and Northern Samaria, and nearly destroyed the Likud Party. He also permanently turned me off to the two-state solution.
I know that. Sharon made a race to the center with Kadima and sold out his long-held principles. That said, is Netanyahu really even close to perfect? Why can’t Israel have a prime minister who refuses to negotiate with people that won’t stop attacking his country? The Palestinians don’t want a deal. They want ALL of the LAND. The two-state solution is impossible. Even if 80% of the Palestinian people got on board with the idea, Hamas would never get on board with it, and they’d simply start firing rockets into the neighboring state, forcing Israel to retaliate. The two-state solution would dissolve approximately 1 day after implementation as Israel was forced to reoccupy land used by the terrorists to attack.
Netanyahu? Perfect? After he gave control of 97% of Hebron to the PA? I see daily before me Netanyahu’s flaws. It seems that every big-time right winger makes major concessions. Menahem Begin, the George Washington of Israel, gave back the Sinai. Now we’re going to have to fight over it again, unless we don’t really need Eilat and the Pacific/Indian Ocean shipping we can only get through it.
The Koran speaks of the Jewish return, and the rebuilding of the Beit Hamikdash. The more we equivocate and vacillate, the less the Arabs believe the time has come for Sura 17 to be fulfilled, and the more grief they give us.
I went on a Birthright trip to Israel a couple of years ago. With you being in Israel, I'm sure you're familiar with the program. It was a 10-day trip and we had 5 members of the Israeli military with us for four of those days. They really opened my eyes to the stuff that you guys put up with every day. It's hard to imagine how tiny the State of Israel is until you actually go there. Traveling from the north to the south takes some time, but less time than driving across New York State, and traveling east to west takes almost no time. We spent a day in Eilat and I remember being able to see how close the Egyptian and Jordanian borders were to the beach. Israel is surrounded by enemies and the UN keeps urging them to give up more and more land for this mythical peace that I keep hearing about, but never comes.
...a direct hit on the terrorist cell, which had apparently just finished launching a mortar attack on southern Israel... attacked two terrorist tunnels, a weapons factory in southern Gaza and a terrorist training center as well. Direct hits were confirmed on all targets, and all IDF personnel returned safely to their bases...

“Israel is surrounded by enemies and the UN keeps urging them to give up more and more land for this mythical peace that I keep hearing about, but never comes.”
But it has come. It is here. Giving the PLO its own fiefdom has given the US peace in Saudi Arabia, because their yearly extortion money is much lower, the PLO having the Palis to shake down and lord it over, and the US and EU to pump for the rest of the money.
As September approaches, Jerusalem Palis are applying for Israeli citizenship in record numbers, and those Palestinians (as opposed to Israeli Arabs) outside of Jerusalem with the money and Jordanian citizenship to do it are relocating to Jordan. The Palis really don’t want them. The PLO was made their “sole legitimate voice” at Oslo by diplomatic fiat, and they’ve lived in fear ever since. Those palis with a less mendacious world view and a little leadership ability were quickly killed off as “collaborators”. The rest hate them, but also fear them, and individual initiative and standing alone is looked on poorly in Arab society.
-——this is to force Hamas to pay Baksheesh———
That is quite interesting.
It is my feeling that there is no love lost between Egyptians and the Hamas Palestinians. If they were desirable, rather than very undesirable, the Hamas Palis would be Egyptian. It seems to me that even though there is change in Egypt, it does not include scrubbing the stain off the people of Gaza
“...Make the Muzzies negotiate for it back...”
Hell, don’t negotiate with them for anything. Tell them to pack up their things and vacate Gaza, or be destroyed.
That’s the ONLY negotiation for these vermin. I hope to see the Israelis just take them apart, once and for all.
Muzzies are a people of war; that’s all they understand. I don’t see how anyone can live in peace near them. Their koran tells them explicitly to conquer and subjugate.
I’m at a point in my life and understanding of things where I just don’t give a rat’s ass what happens to the Pali’s or the Hamas idiots, or the Hezbollah - or socialist liberals here in America for that matter. They’re ALL equally threatening and detrimental to my culture, my people, my country, and my civilization.
“...they are a people of war...”
Quoted caww in the last post, meant to state that. Sorry, caww.
Further All know the Muslims agenda concerning Israel. That will not change as long as they adhere to the Koran. And that the Muslim leadership uses to keep their people under subjection.
Egypt, Libya, Syria and all the uprising will not give these people the "freedom" they seek....they will still have a dictator governance...and quite probable more sinister than they have had. Especially since the Muslum Brotherhood is working directly with nation leaders...including ours. They are sinister in every way...cloaking themselves however necessary until they have governing positions filled throughout the M.E...as well as here in the USA.
Least we forget Obama has recognized the Muslim Brotherhood Politically.
“...They are sinister in every way...cloaking themselves however necessary until they have governing positions ...”
Your description is equally applicable to democrat socialist liberals in this country.
They enable the muzzies here. They are a worse threat to us.
Hope the military remembers their oath.
That's exactly right. But so to are those in our camp who are permoting candidates who support the Muzzies...this is even more alarming for they operate on our side influencing those even here on FR.
The push is on to get all governments compliant with the "staus quo" to prepare the nations for one world governance.
Obama, Hillary, Reid and the rest know exactly what the agenda is on an international scale...and Perry too is buying into it as we see by his operations in Texas over the years.
I fear there is none powerful enough to stop this....it's in every corner lurking to strike like a Cobra.
One of the goals of the Muslim Brotherhood is to get politicians to do their work for them....and they are. Worse than a sad state of affirs in our nation....we are under seige and few that understand this let alone willing to do anything about it.
One thing I do know to date...Israel is very much aware of what's happening....and the agenda behind it. Unfortunately they will yield in time for the sake of a false peace.
