IDF Rescues Arab Mother and Baby from Gaza Rocket Attack
Arutz Sheva ^ | 28/8/11 | Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

Posted on 08/28/2011 2:22:36 AM PDT by Eleutheria5

The IDF has rescued an Arab woman and her baby daughter after they received medical care in Israel and then were caught in a Hamas mortar shell attack on the Erez Crossing to northern Gaza.

The commander of the Erez crossing and another security officer brought the woman and baby to a protected shelter at the crossing where they were given a meal for the end of the daily fast during the Muslim month of Ramadan.

Two other Arab women and another baby, who had received Israel's medical care, managed to cross into Gaza before the explosions at the crossing, cutting the electricity and disabling entrance gates.

The squad of terrorists that fired a mortar shell hitting the Erez Crossing was targeted shortly afterwards by an IAF aircraft, in the northern Gaza Strip.

The attack on the Erez Crossing, used for the movement of Arabs who mostly seek medical care and foreign staff members of international organizations in and out of Gaza, was the second one on the transfer point during the week.

The IDF also coordinated 150 truckloads of goods and food at Erez during the past week. Israel has cared for thousands of Gaza Arabs despite the ongoing rocket and mortar shell attacks on southern Israel.

Then they stole body parts from then and sold them, and gave them sex gum to corrupt their morals, and rubbed their hands together with wicked jooo! glee.

Why?

The ministering angels asked the same question when Hagar and the young, wayward Ishmael were wandering in the dessert, and Ishmael was burning with fever and had no water. The angels opposed giving them water, because of all the wicked things that his descendants would do. G-d, however, provided the water, because he judged Ishmael by his actions at that time, which were sufficiently righteous that he didn’t deserve death. The child is a child. As she is right now, she deserves medical care and shelter from the mortar fire.

Because the members of the IDF, tough as they are (I consider it a privilege to have served along side them a couple of times) are human too.
No man would allow a woman and child to be hurt if he could help it. Religion doesn't come into it. Morality does.

It is one of the Judeo Christian's greatest strengths. And greatest weaknesses.

And to show her thanks to the IDF that rescued her, the Palestinian mother will teach the child to be a good suicide bomber . . . to please the Muslim death cult and create another “martyr” to kill the evil Jews. With luck, she will rig herself to blow up the hospital that treated her and the child. Palestinians are rabid animals and need to be put down.

You are no doubt correct. Hearts and minds work only works with people who actually have them. That is why I said it is one of our greatest weaknesses.

I'm being deadly serious. I saw a report that the Israelis had treated a severely ill Palestinian woman in a hospital just across the demarcation line between Gaza and Israel. Without the benefits of Israeli medicine, this deathly sick 14 year old would have died.

To show her gratitude four years later, this same woman tried to blowup the same hospital with a bomb vest. When she saw the security people wouldn't allow her in, she detonated the vest, killing herself and wounding four security personnel.

Showing mercy and kindness by Israelis to the Palestinians is a wasted effort. The IAF needs to rain cluster bombs on Gaza and the IDF can use it for target practice with MLRS rockets with cluster warheads. Wipe the Palestinians out.

Lies, lies lies. We all *know* who 'those people' work. There was no rescue.
They kidnapped them, sold off body parts, and used the rest to make soup.

Maybe I should check with Hillary if this is the State Dept's latest stance? Nah..... why bother.

I remember that report well. My wife was in Tel Aviv at the time, so it was all over the news.
It was totally sickening, and I’d like to see these imams that call for suicide bombers to stand up and take the lead. If they had the guts to blow themselves up as an example to the dumb youth they brainwash, there would be less of this cr*p.

But still, what would you do? I, in all honestly, would do what the IDF members did. My son died protecting women and children from an IED in Helmand. If he had not left his vehicle to warn passers by to get out of the area, he would probably still be alive.

Pity and mercy is part of our culture. It is a weakness, yes, but also our greatest strength and one I would hate to see us lose, even though our enemies consider gratitude to an enemy to be a sin in their terms.

I regret that you are serious.

It boils down to this: you can't be decent only when it's reciprocated or convenient, otherwise the indecent have changed you.

In my heart, I know good wins in the end so I can't look at it as a weakness.

I resent that. It’s absolutely untrue. We use innocent Palestinian chickens to make soup, I’ll have you know. Mothers and babies, we abduct and make sex slaves, and then sell their body parts. Whatever’s left goes into the Purim pastries.

Children once upon a time were Hitler, Mao, Pol-Pot, Stalin, Bin-Laden, Mohammed... etc. Most of us would have preferred these monsters died while they were still of an innocent age.

Though, I understand your point.

What it comes down to for me is this. When I look at my grandbabies and think of the future they will have with the spread of Islaminsanitalization it is an easy decision for me. Wipe them out down to the last tit-sucking babe. And if you think that is just idle talk, wellll...we won’t test that here.

A friend of mine just got back from F ghanistan. He saw the truth. He told me they will destroy us. Maybe. Maybe not. Fight to win. Just like my old friend and Classical Lit. prof back in college told me about his experiences fighting the Japanese in WWII. He said “We fought to win. We did what we had to do”. And you could see the haunt in his eyes. They HAD TO set their morality and good intentions aside. Was he a monster? YES. YES HE WAS. For a time. But I got to be in his classes and experience his love for the classic writers and poets. Something that WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE WITHOUT HIS SACRIFICES.

PS: My friend brought me a treasure from F ghanistan. One of the American Flags that flew over his FOB. ``

Okay. Back to the comedy.

Why did the Pali cross the road?

Chicken by day.
Chickenshit by night.

Because we were chosen by G-d to serve the people of the world and, one day, perhaps in the world to come, will be rewarded for obeying Him.

It’s a hard pill to swallow. My natural inclination is to push them into Eqypt or Syria by force.

But the allies didn’t annihilate the Japanese. They eventually annihilated the Japanese emperor worship, with the full cooperation of Hirohito. Muslims have a similar fascination with world conquest and suicidal attacks. They are also into rape, pillage and slaughter. What we have to destroy is not mothers with babies, but their crazy death cult. Either find spokesman for a more benign form of Islam and see to it that they are heard the most while the crazies are marginalized, or destroy Islam. As for Arabs themselves, they’re my cousins; my schizophrenic cousins that you might want to keep away from anything sharp, and you might want to watch. But Islam and/or Islamofascism is what makes them that way.

Perhaps they have a temperamental affinity towards it. Mohammed was an illiterate, epileptic, pedophile and a savage, but he was also an Arab, and built his religion around the quirks in the Arab mind, of which he was a prime example. So we must find something less destructive that’s also tailored towards these quirks.

That is a beautiful, idealistic, egalitarian thought. And I’m not so completely bloodthirsty to discount it. But time is running out. And you can’t say they didn’t have their chance.

Yes. It might have been possible to accomplish all that I said before Oslo. But Oslo has created the exact opposite of peace, and the damage may be irreversible. I hope not, but wouldn’t bet the farm on it.

Oslo Accord. By diplomatic fiat, they place every Pali In Yesha and Ghaza under the thumb of career criminals and unrepentant Nazis. Arabs, being fatalists, accept their fate and dutifully murder and riot, strap bombs to their waists and detonate. Those that might otherwise have been leaders or who make some kind of a stand, are killed off as “collaborators”. Those with good survival instincts toe the party line: “Itbah alYahood!”

There are a few exceptions, such as J. Post commentator Khalid Abu Toameh and Sheikh Abdul Pallazi in Italy. But for the most part, all voices of moderation have been silenced.

But look on the bright side. Bill Clinton got some great photo ops out of the piece process.

I have always operate under the assumption that you kill the enemy. You remove them as a threat for all time. You wipe them out, burn their fields and cities and sow their lands with salt.

To show mercy in the name of some superstition will get you and yours killed by the savages.
