I wish someone would explain to me so I could understand it why Israel supplies water and electricity to Gaza. Why not cut it off when things get hot?
The UN has scheduled an emergency session concerning Israel’s attacks on terrorists launching rockets from Gaza. Israel has suffered over a 1000 rocket attacks this year and the UN does not say a damn thing or do a damn thing.
F-— the UN and its tacit support of terrorist!
I would definitely agree that gaza is an Iranian base.
If only some man, a willful king would arise to bring ‘peace’ by dividing the land for say, seven years. Meanwhile Russia Today claims Israel using white phosphorous. Get ready: we are ramping up to Ezekiel 38.
1) Un-aimed rockets are just stupid.
Of course they hit nothing. Most of the world’s surface doesn’t have humans on it at any given time.
These Muslims are of course 0bama supporters because “How I Feel” trumps anything like effectiveness. Israel should (and hopefully will) reply with effective counter fire. I’d say that would teach the Muzzies a lesson, except they are obviously immune to lessons. Witness 100+ years of utter stupidity since the Ottoman Empire fell.
2) Un-aimed rockets are a violation of the Geneva Convention.
Military action is supposed to have a military target. Otherwise, civilian casualties are likely (in this case they are the objective) which is a violation. All of Hamas are WAR CRIMINALS.
They’re saying it’s the first time sirens have gone off in Tel Aviv since the 1991 Gulf War.
I have a feeling this war won’t just be limited to Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
How long before Hezbollah, Syria, and Iran join in?
Israel is doing a really smart thing here.
Immediately after their sworn enemy has been re-elected (0bambi), they know they are totally alone.
Yet the Arab world is aflame and disunited.
So, Israel takes their nearest and daily causus belli from their weakest opponent (Hamas), and takes out the trash. I look for Bibi to focus on Hamas until they are a completely wasted rump of no value to anyone. Who cares about Hamas? Nobody, really.
Then, when Hamas is all done and wrapped up, Bibi moves on to his next causus belli and will find the reason Hezbollah needs a good whipping. They are particularly vulnerable since Assad is otherwise occupied with his civil war. I predict Bibi will take out the trash in Southern Lebanon after a decent interval.
The West Bank seems largely controllable with that excellent fence, so no action is probably required.
Next up are the big ones: Egypt and Iran.
Egypt may in the interim give Israel a reason to take them out. I hope not. Israel needs to focus on taking out the Iranian regime. I don’t suppose I know how, but that’s where their focus has to go next. And, they’ll have to do it without us.
Helpfully, 0bama doesn’t have bases in Iraq to intercept their overflights to Tehran.
I was in Rishon Lezion in June for my sisters wedding. My cousins from my father’s side and my Mom’s aunt and family still live there..scary stuff..they were shocked that the rocket could travel so far..my brother in law’s brother has already been called back to Israel since he is in the Israeli Army
Total extermination of terrorists is the only solution. I would bomb Gaza to rubble and bulldoze it flat.
