Report: Hamas Preparing Chemical Weapons
Breitbart ^ | 11/18/12 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 11/18/2012 11:19:14 AM PST by Nachum

According to Britain’s Sunday Times, Israeli special forces are already on the ground in Gaza seeking out rockets and weapons for targeting. The Times is also reporting that Hamas may place chemical weapons on its long-range missiles. “Hamas might go for a desperate attempt to launch rockets with chemical warheads if the worst came to the worst,” one unnamed source reported.

It has been reported that Hamas is hiding its rockets underground, particularly near civilian areas including mosques, hoping that Israel will not strike such targets out of concern for civilian life.

The same report gave a timeline of the killing of Hamas military chief Ahmed Jabari:

If Iron Dome detonates missiles in mid-flight, will the chemicals be too dispersed to be a danger on the ground?

And just how did Hamas get their grubby hands on chemical weapons? I don’t recall the primitive Gaza strip having any kind of chemical industrial engineering facilities. These pali primitives even have to get their electricity and water from Israel so I doubt that they made them on their own. Iran maybe?

Hmm wonder where they got these chemical weapons?

Syria perhaps???

And where did Syria get chemical weapons?

From none other than IRAQ. Those WMD’s were there all along in Iraq and moved to Syria.

If chemical weapons are used then this is about to get biblically epic....

Remember the stockpile of Sadam’s weapons said to have been transported to Syria? So much going on these days, the details fail me.
Was it publicly confirmed?
Confirmed or not, I wonder where they are now.

Unnamed sources....

I think Hamas is bluffing...for more time before Israel crosses that red line and move troops across the Gaza border....

I do not think they have the capacity to launch chemical weapons missiles...yet...

6 hours ago from BiBi via his FaceBook:


אני מעריך את ההתגייסות המהירה והמרשימה של אנשי המילואים שבאו מכל חלקי הארץ. הם באו מכל חלקי הארץ והתייצבו למשימה. חיילי המילואים והסדיר נכונים לכל פקודה שיקבלו.

אנו נמשיך לעשות הכל כדי להגן על אזרחינו.

The operation in the Gaza Strip is continuing and we are prepared to expand it. I appreciate the rapid and impressive mobilization of the reservists who have come from all over the country and turned out for the mission at hand. Reservist and conscript soldiers are ready for any order they might receive

We will continue doing everything to protect our citizens.

In theory you can have a 0.1KT nuke/shell. They are antipersonel weapons.

If Hamas is stupid enough to do this, Israel, in my opinion, should respond with a tactical nuke if possible. There are no innocents in the muslim world, only terrorists and the people who support or fail to challenge them.

“Israel needs to announce that any use of chemical weapons will result in the destruction of Al Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock.”

When I first heard that rockets had been targeted at Jerusalem, my first thought was that a couple of “mis-directed” rockets were bound to hit these two Islamic edifices............one way or another.....

Syrian military doctrine is predicated upon the old USSR's European order of battle and tactics. Syria is well known to possess the worlds largest chemical warfare stocks outside of Russia today - they are a Russian client.

The matter of Iraq's chemical weapons and some aircraft are suspected of being buried in a desert valley in Syria with the help of the Russians over a 3-week period before Bush launched the second invasion.

It is possible that Iran who is also Russia's client could have provided these weapons.

Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) are all classified as weapons of mass destruction and any one of the three can elicit a response of like kind or within the three-weapon grouping; therefore if a nation does not possess Chemical weapons it is a like kind retaliation to use Biological or even nuclear weapons.

Nukes come in various types and are not just Massive air bursts but can be delivered man portable, from artillery shells, and other pinpoint small area applications on order of a grid square or a 1 Km area.

If Iran, or it's proxies with Iran's blessing utilizes any WMD then Israel may well use her own WMD.

Me thinks they carve up Gaza like a checker board by cutting with spearhead lines to the Red Sea, then from those battle lines start to clear from the Israeli boarder and Red Sea inward both above and below ground. Should take no more than 3 -4 days above ground - about the timeline they are talking before ceasefire takes effect - if they clear Gaza that would effectively create the cease fire permanently.

Actually, using chemical weapons might actually shock the Israelis out of their stupor to finally realize this isn’t a damned game, playing for points, and that if Hamas wants to kill Israelis, then the Israelis have to kill Hamas back.

If Hamas makes a significant amount of chemical weapons that prematurely detonate, there are going to be a lot of dead
Gazans. Chemical weapons are effective against civilians with no protective equipment or ability to decontaminate, and it is the gift that keeps on giving.

You know that if Israel takes out a missile site and accidentally releases chemicals from the Hamas warheads, Israel will be accused of using chemical weapons against Gaza, and no amount of proof will quiet the anti-Semetic leftists and Islamists.

While what you said is true, the major powers would be all over the chemical trace analysis of the agent, as it would invoke some very arcane and harsh sanctions against the manufacturer. Chemical weapons are recognized as WMD, and their use is a major “escalator”.

The US was very clear, for example, that if an enemy used chemical weapons on a US airfield, the US *would* reply with nuclear weapons.

The chemical weapons use during the Iran-Iraq war resulted in a lot of behind the scenes work, and the Russians in particular leaned on both sides to cut that crap out. And Russians are not subtle at all about some things.

Depends on a lot of variables...primarily the type of agent (persistent v. non-persistent), altitude and weather conditions.

Both persistent and non-persistent have their different tactical applications for a military in the field.

For a terrorist organization, either would do, and they're probably limited to whatever they could get their hands on (I'm guessing it's Sadaam's old stock that ended up in the Beqaa Valley.
