Israel hits Hamas buildings, shoots down Tel Aviv-bound rocket
Yahoo!news ^ | 11-17-12 | Nidal al-Mughrabi and Jeffrey Heller

GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli aircraft bombed Hamas government buildings in Gaza, and the "Iron Dome" defense system shot down a Tel Aviv-bound rocket on Saturday as Israel geared up for a possible ground invasion.

Hamas, the Palestinian Islamist group that runs the Gaza Strip, said Israeli missiles wrecked the office building of Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh - where he had met on Friday with the Egyptian prime minister - and struck a police headquarters.

Along the Tel Aviv beachfront, volleyball games came to an abrupt halt and people crouched as sirens sounded. Two interceptor rockets streaked into the sky. A flash and an explosion followed as Iron Dome, deployed only hours earlier near the city, destroyed the incoming projectile in mid-air.

Jews were forced from their homes in Gaza. The etire area was handed over o the Palestinians as a turn-key country, complete with large commercial greenhouses, water, electricity, good israeli infrastructue, etc.

All the Palestinians had to do was enjoy life and not be A-holes. They just couldn’t do it.

Israel is being very foolish not wiping Gaza out and taking over the Gaza strip for good. Enforce the border with Egypt and warn Egypt one more rocket and there will be no Egypt. Anything other than that and there will never be piece in the area again.

Psalm 20

Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed; he will answer him from his holy heaven with the saving might of his right hand.

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.

They collapse and fall, but we rise and stand upright.

Israel should NOT have to live like that. Day in, day out. All they want to do is live their lives.

Yes, I’m preaching to the choir...

Now that the Kenyan has been “reelected”, I don’t think it will be long before the muzzies in this country go after the Jews living here.

I’m surprised it’s not happened already.

Does anyone know where we can donate money directly to the IDF? Either they take their blog down for Sabbath or...it’s overloaded cuz I can’t get in.

"Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed; he will answer him from his holy heaven with the saving might of his right hand..."

Amen! Was praying that exact thing last night and this morning for Israel as they are being attacked repeatedly. I was literally praying the Lord would lift up His hand for their defense. (goosebumps) Awesome!

Israel should make the places out side Israel glass.

"When you besiege a city for a long time, making war against it in order to take it, you shall not destroy its trees by wielding an axe against them; for you may eat of them, but you shall not cut them down. For is the tree of the field man that it should be besieged by you?"
(Deut. 20:19).

So stop it, okay? Just stop.

In Moab on a mountain once,
I took my stave in hand,
And gazed out wistfully upon
The hoped-for promised land.
Then bade me Death my eyes to close,
And drew me far away,
Behind a rampant stallion,
In heaven's formless dray.
When here I stopped, in bonds of flesh,
I bound myself to earth,
Again (who have with Pharaoh walked)
To know the dread of birth.
And have I come thus, far in time,
My bootless rod in hand,
To sigh upon a mountain-top,
For you, my Promised Land?

yeah, the idea is clear, no unnecessary collateral damage.

we could even figuratively say, why punish the earth for the jerks that are walking on it?

“All the Palestinians had to do was enjoy life and not be A-holes. They just couldn’t do it.”

Exactly. What a very simple and understandable way to put it.

Only in allegorical terms. The narrator, of course, is Moses, who is wondering whether he's come all the way from that mountain in Moab to the twentieth century, only to be denied once more entrance into the Promised Land. Fanciful stuff, but when the muse calls one has to respond.

And we took all his cities at that time, killing the inhabitants of them, men and women and children. We left nothing of them: Deuteronomy 1: 34

Israel has a right to defend herself, whatever that may entail.

That verse pertains only to Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon. It's not carte blanche.

You’re welcome. They may be “enemy” sites and the propaganda heavy but the sounds are real.

The ustream feed has had some issues lately...maybe too much rdx or hmx in the wires feeding them or the smoke leaked out.
