Posted on 03/10/2012 1:54:36 AM PST by Marguerite
Palestinian terrorists fired at least 80 rockets from Gaza into southern Israel since Friday night, leaving eight Israelis injured in the heaviest series of attacks in months. The barrages came in response to an IAF strike which killed the secretary general of the Popular Resistance Committees, Zuhair Qaisi.
The Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted at least five rockets fired from the Gaza Strip at Beersheba and Ashdod early Saturday morning. In total, at least ten rockets have been intercepted by the system since the beginning of the escalation on Friday.
The IAF struck targets in Gaza overnight Friday and Saturday morning in response to the rocket attacks. Twelve Palestinians - 10 of them members of Islamic Jihad - were killed in the strikes and another 20 were injured, according to Palestinian news agency Ma'an.

Justice has been served.
The IDF stated that the attack was part of an operation to thwart the intentions of terrorists to carry out terror attacks in Sinai, along the border between Israel and Egypt. Qaisi had been planning and leading over the past few days a major terror attack against Israeli targets.
The Muslims are going to try to eliminate Israel in the coming months/years. They feel empowered with the USA being led by a bowing apologetic wimp in the White House. This will be the interloper's legacy. War in the ME, and all the world havoc it causes. History will write that bambi was a direct influence because of his weak leadership and prostrating himself to the Muslims. We could possibly see a regional war, god forbid a nuclear confrontation.
The only thing that will stop them is if Israel kills Iran. I sincerely don't want to see innocent pro-western Persians die, but if that is what it takes to secure Israel, I'm for it. And no, I'm not Jewish. I just know good people who want to be left alone when I see them.
However, if Israel destroys Iran's machine, many other countries and NGO's will think twice. Guess it takes the Muslims hoards in the ME to be reminded once in awhile not to attempt genocide. Hopefully, some day, the rest of western civilization will see these barbarians for what they are and take appropriate measures against them.
I stand by Israel. Got problem?
RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) President Barack Obama has told the Palestinians to sit tight during a U.S. election year, while holding out the promise of a serious push for Palestinian statehood if he wins a second term, the Palestinian foreign minister said Friday.
You really, really need to get rid of your kaliph...
Palestinians fire 92 rockets at southern Israel
Escalation in South: 8 Israelis hurt, 1 seriously as terrorists continue attacks after IAF strike kills PRC chief; Iron Dome intercepts 25 rockets; Palestinians say: 14 killed, 20 injured in Gaza.
The only way for America and Israel good, is to butt Obama out of the White House.
Sorry you anti-semites and UN and politicians, but they don't live in so-called "refuge camps". They live in towns with real buildings, but refuse to improve them. Their entire existence revolves around hating Jews and being perpetual victims - they teach that to their young as seen in the documentary "Children of Gaza". I despise those scum. I have more respect for the primitive Amazon tribes.
As I have always said, they are a "gutter" people. They are an awful culture and don't give a crap about their own children, much less their women. They can all go to hell or allah or madmo or whoever. They disgust me.
someone ping me when Israel hits back with all they got!!
Antisemitic FOX (BAIN) News has already
BLAMED ISRAEL for this attack.
To accomplish this great feat, America returning to God, will take sincere repentance of many Americans. The great majority of Americans who are mired down in their secularist schools of thought and many others are pagans, satanic cultists and new agers, etc.
A good sign that America will succeed in this heroic feat, will be her willingness to promote a 100% ProLife electorate and national prayer for His mercy and grace.
As it stands now, we have only one 100% ProLife politician running for Obama’s office. And even many so-called religious cannot see the error of their support for the atheistic. They believe the myth of the separation of church and state and so conduct their daily lives. He will not stand idly by and let the atheistic continue the culture of death. We have reached the end of His rope and He will now purify the world of the evils.
Yes, it will take much more than simply removing Obama from office, to save this nation and the world from His heavy hand. Yet, Americans are, by and large, oblivious to the impending doom of this nation and large portions of the world.
All that is in the Book of John will come to pass and that time is upon us now. Pray for all our souls.
Watch now, for soon a man of false peace will present himself to the world and a false peace will be temporarily created in the Middle East...a guise.
The IDF blows up the leader of terror group that abducted the Israeli soldier Shalit
The liquidation of Zuhair al-Qaissi, who was blown up in his car in Gaza City along with two other terrorists, from a missile fired by an IAF drone.
Al-Qaissa headed the Hamas-linked Popular Resistance Committees responsible for the kidnapping of soldier Gilad Shalit, and also oversaw last Augusts terror attack near Eilat.
“BTW, the worse decision Israel ever made was to give the so-called palistinians the Gaza Strip. What a waste. They immediately destroyed the Israeli infra-structure and have done nothing to build a better life for themselves.”
Fully agree. I was against it at the time. It only shows what happens when Israel gives up land for an impossible “peace”.
This story will be buried. Only the retaliation will be monitored and condemned by every country on earth. It’s a never ending downward spiral to Megiddo. My prayers for all that are affected by this evil.
Kinda looks like the Palestinians will run out of people before the Israelis. In addition to all the other shortcomings, it seems the Palis can't count.
Tick, tick, tick....
Obviously, the palisti-losers are peace-loving people. They are just trying to dispose of dangerous explosives and avoid accidents in their community. Someone should bulldoze them out of gaza and into the mediterranean.
Didn’t realize that, but I have always suggested that we dispose of our nuclear arsenal in a similar manner.
I think that Hezbolla want to keep Israel busy with the rockets so that Israel doesn’t pound the Bat Snot out of Iran and Mock Mouddinnjacket.
If you took every Israeli and forced them to move to Sinai, then gave Israel to the palestinians, within 10 years Sinai would be flourishing and Palestine would be a sh*t hole.
And they would blame Israel for it.
The solution is simple. Give sinai to the Palestinians. Every dollar that would go to the UN will go to build the new Palestine. And move the UN to palestines new city, preferably on the waterfront.
The Palis are just trying to take attention away from Iran. I’m surprised it took this long. I expect the same thing would be coming from Syria also if they weren’t in such turmoil already.

If it only were that simple. When Israel was recreated in 1948 the Palestinians were offered a large swath of what is now Jordan but turned it down. They have one goal and one goal only...the destruction of Israel. The rest of the Arab world are playing them like pawns. Don’t ever think there will be a two-state solution because the Palestinians only want one...the Palestinian State.
Prayers for Israel in the name of Yeshua Ha’Mashiach.
The Israeli’s never wanted Gaza. In fact, it was part of the Camp David accords that the Israelis take back Gaza. The Egyptians wanted no part of them..

I don’t know about that, he might enjoy it too much.
I’d much rather see him run out on a rail, tar and feathered, then prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for his treachery as well as his treasonous behavior.
Pray for Israel.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas also condemned the strike.
The pali's have brass ball the size of church bell! They launch missiles into Israel and then complain when Israel defends herself!! Sheesh. There will NEVER be any truly lasting peaceful solution (crafted by man) to this...the pali's can't live with peace. They thrive on blood and turmoil.
Do Palistinians have dictionaries? I think they are having problems with the meaning words like “peace” and “rational”
I agree. It is. To Israel’s advantage to present it. Israel took a solution n 1948. And look how Israel is today. Offering this up, gives the Palis an opportunity to start fresh. By saying no to it, tells the world what the Palis really want which in my eyes absolves Israel from any future retaliation against pali terrorism.
Good point, Chief. We can only hope. However, the palistinians are the least of Israel's problems. Hell, they're so impotent they can even kill an Israeli with all the rockets they launch.
Israel's problem lies with Iran, Syria, Egypt, and possibly Lebanon. I highly doubt that Saudi Arabia will get involved, although they are some of the worst Islamists (I despise them and their royal intolerant culture). The Yemis are going to sit this one out. Like the UAE, they enjoy a relative high standard of living.
Still, there is the northern part of Africa that is muslim that may send soldiers, resources, and suicide bombers. Israel built the wall, which we should have done long ago and approved by Congress.
Personally, I'm at the point of hoping Israel will nuke Iran and set an example. Russia nor China will not do a damn thing but to cry to the UN for redress and maybe put their forces on alert to show their power. They won't get involved as many say because they are enjoying their new found life style, not to mention the almost untouchable Trident submarines we have. What would they do, Chief? March against Israel? Hardly.
So kill them all Israel - let god sort them out. I'm with you!
Hezbolla, Hamas, and the other factions of the Muslim Brotherhood under-estimate Israeli intelligence and capabilities and determination. They are the best of the best simply because they are fighting for the right to exist.
Think what the USA would do in such a case. Oh, right, we nuked Japan and fire-bombed Germany - good. We can agree we have weak leaders nowadays, but if it was about our survival...things would take a quick turn! I would bet everything I have that the Trident missles would go airborne to protect our children, even with bambi in office. Our nuke subs are the only thing that let me sleep at night while Navy during the cold war, and even now.
Our Trident sailors may not be hard ass grunts (love them), but they are the most highly trained and focused military you will find on this rock. Have you ever imagined what stress they incur every day knowing that they could destroy much of the planet? I've talked to a couple of them in my Navy days and found them to have that 1000 yard stare the grunts have.
Sorry, got off topic.
Agreed. History shows such. Palistinians and other muslim ilk are useless neanderthals who can't or won't understand civilized homo-sapiens. Kill them before they infect us all like the decease they are. Our ancient ancestors killed off the neanderthals and built the civilization we have now.
Thank you for posting history. The other part of your reply is that Israel was created from Trans-Jordan and Israelis were also referred to as palistinians at the time, as occupants of Palestine. There was a third section that I can't recall.
Anyway, I don't give one sh*t about who has claim to that land. All I know for fact, is that it was a wasteland until the Jews moved there and built something of it. The arabs (palistinians) moved out or were bought out. That's also a fact. Once they saw the Jews flourishing they wanted back in. They got jobs and increased their standard of living until they decided to advance their sick ideology of exterminating Israelis.
The reason I know this is because I watched the palis over the years bomb buses, cafes, weddings, town squares, et al, over and over and over until the the wall was built and kick those scum out! Now what do they have? Nothing. Oh, but wait, they live in refugee camps, as if. Frig them.
Wish I had a graphic server to post all the graphics I've saved with the palis cutting their own children's heads in some bizarre ritual. They are the worse of human-kind, and so are many other muslims. If I were king of the world, I would kill them all.
Obama will attack Iran before Israel does.
Oops, my bad, you're correct. The Palestinian negotiators indicated they wanted full Palestinian sovereignty over the entire West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
Israel was willing to give some 91% (some say 97%) of Arafat's demands, but not satisfied, Arafat immediately called for a new intifada. The suicide bombings commenced. We used to read every day about another bombing of weddings, cafes, buses, et al. Those horrific mass murders is what got me interest in the Israeli/pali conflict. As a deist, I couldn't understand why that was happening to good decent people.
Bottom line is that Israelis want to live in peace and go about their daily lives. Palis live for their self-imposed hatred and long for the destruction of Jews. After watching the documentary "Children of Gaza" years back, and watching how the neutral reporter walked away disgusted, I have zero respect for anything pali.
If they want their 7th century religion (like many muslims) and cut off young girl's genitals and knife their own children on the head in a sick ritual, then I have NO sympathy for what happens to them. Let them all die and the world will be better without them. I'm okay with that.
Having been to Gaza, I can confirm that what the Palestinians call “refugee camps,” the rest of us would call “apartment complexes.” What a charade.
Its good that “Iron Dome” is up and running
That is correct. They even got a new airport out of the giveaway. Arafat was a terrorist pedophile who had the blood of Americans on his hands while getting a Nobel prize..
That is the exact same stance that Muslims take. So why are you better than them?
I pray that you are right about our Military leaders but I wouldn’t trust the current POTUS.
Because his expression of "Kill them all" is based in the concept of self-defense.
The Muslim stance of "Kill them all" is based in the concept of "They're not Muslim".
Surely you can understand that.
Probably 90% of the population does not know this happened and will only be told that Israel has launched an unprovoked attack, if they push back.
“Amazing! Not one word about this attack on any major news online edition. How does a country get 80 missiles launched at it and not a peep is reported on any news website?”
UPDATE - 93 missiles today.
Israeli Iron Dome has intercepted 39 rockets since start of escalation.
Since Friday afternoon, when Israel assassinated the leader of the Popular Resistance Committees in Gaza, who kidnapped and held prisonner the Israeli soldier Shalit for five years, 93 rockets have landed inside Israel, and over 24 targets have been bombed by the IAF throughout the Gaza Strip.
Iron Dome batteries intercepted and destroyed in the air 39 Katyusha and Grad rockets from Gaza yesterday.
