Can't technology allow for a massive counter attack, on any area where Israel knows that missiles have been fired at them?

Getting the Palestinian street to realize that missile bases are TARGETS for Israel is the only way this will stop.

Here we go...Just a small blip in an ongoing blog from the Times of Israel:

15:57 Egyptian media is reporting a build up of army forces in the Sinai Peninsula along the Israel-Egypt border, Walla News reports. In addition, Egyptian border guard units are also increasing their presence along the border.

Tel Aviv is the bastion of the Israeli left. Many feel that terror is not their problem. That it is something only settlers had to deal with.

Palestinians are MUSLIMS.

This is Islam genociding a different religion (jews/Israel) as Islam genocided 2 million Christian Armenians in 1915 , as Islam genocided countless millions of Hindus in India and POkistan.

It doesn't require any additional technology. It would be a piece of cake to level a square block around any launch site and probably do so before the launched rocket hits the ground.

The trouble is, you have one side who values innocent life and the other side who views innocents as pawns to be expended. Hence, they launch from an area saturated with innocents plus have a complicit media camped at a safe distance, ready to report on the atrocity to a world who will take the reporting at face value.

At this point, largely true. The ones who were Christians got smart and have bugged out of there by now.

“I wonder if President Gilligan has been pulled off the golf course yet.”

I think he was pulled off the links and was heard saying something about today being recycling day.

Israel should recruit Americans directly to come help them. Obama will do nothing other than continue to give money to Hamas.

One of my neighbors had that happen after Vietnam where he was a fighter pilot. It’s probably still going on.

I've seen articles on this and you may be thinking of modern artillery and or rocket launchers that most armies possess. It's actually nothing of the kind. Most of these are modified 122mm rockets or even home-made versions that get set up in a field, a destroyed house, on the back of a truck, etc,, and they fire them off quickly in the general direction of Israel, then high tail it out of there as fast as they can. Counter-battery radar and drones usually locate the launch point quickly, but by the time you bring a response down on that area the perps are gone.

I saw liberalism’s latest lies in the press today. The lastest spin is that it was not really hamas who sent missles into Israe;l rather it was some other group of jihadists. Israel was unjust to knock off that Hamas leader. Hamas, you see, is peaceful now. It’s someone else bombing Israel, but they could not say who.

Pray for Israel.

Well, the neighborhood bully, he’s just one man,
His enemies say he’s on their land.
They got him outnumbered about a million to one,
He got no place to escape to, no place to run.
He’s the neighborhood bully.

The neighborhood bully just lives to survive,
He’s criticized and condemned for being alive.
He’s not supposed to fight back, he’s supposed to have thick skin,
He’s supposed to lay down and die when his door is kicked in.
He’s the neighborhood bully.

The neighborhood bully been driven out of every land,
He’s wandered the earth an exiled man.
Seen his family scattered, his people hounded and torn,
He’s always on trial for just being born.
He’s the neighborhood bully.

Well, he knocked out a lynch mob, he was criticized,
Old women condemned him, said he should apologize.
Then he destroyed a bomb factory, nobody was glad.
The bombs were meant for him.
He was supposed to feel bad.
He’s the neighborhood bully.

Well, the chances are against it and the odds are slim
That he’ll live by the rules that the world makes for him,
‘Cause there’s a noose at his neck and a gun at his back
And a license to kill him is given out to every maniac.
He’s the neighborhood bully.

He got no allies to really speak of.
What he gets he must pay for, he don’t get it out of love.
He buys obsolete weapons and he won’t be denied
But no one sends flesh and blood to fight by his side.
He’s the neighborhood bully.

Well, he’s surrounded by pacifists who all want peace,
They pray for it nightly that the bloodshed must cease.
Now, they wouldn’t hurt a fly.
To hurt one they would weep.
They lay and they wait for this bully to fall asleep.
He’s the neighborhood bully.

Every empire that’s enslaved him is gone,
Egypt and Rome, even the great Babylon.
He’s made a garden of paradise in the desert sand,
In bed with nobody, under no one’s command.
He’s the neighborhood bully.

Now his holiest books have been trampled upon,
No contract he signed was worth what it was written on.
He took the crumbs of the world and he turned it into wealth,
Took sickness and disease and he turned it into health.
He’s the neighborhood bully.

What’s anybody indebted to him for?
Nothin’, they say.
He just likes to cause war.
Pride and prejudice and superstition indeed,
They wait for this bully like a dog waits to feed.
He’s the neighborhood bully.

What has he done to wear so many scars?
Does he change the course of rivers?
Does he pollute the moon and stars?
Neighborhood bully, standing on the hill,
Running out the clock, time standing still,
Neighborhood bully.

-Bob Dylan
