Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Statement on FaceBook
FaceBook ^ | November 21, 2012 | Benjamin Netanyahu

Posted on 11/21/2012 2:12:52 PM PST by onyx

אני יודע שישנם אזרחים שמצפים לפעולה צבאית חריפה עוד יותר, וייתכן מאוד שנידרש לה, אבל בעת הזאת, הדבר הנכון למדינת ישראל הוא למצות את ההזדמנות הזאת להשיג הפסקת אש מתמשכת.

כראש ממשלה מוטלת עליי האחריות – והיא אחריות עליונה – לעשות את הצעדים הנכונים לשמור על ביטחוננו. כך נהגתי, כך אמשיך לנהוג.

I realize that there are citizens who expect a harsher military action and we may very well need to do that. But at present, the right thing for the State of Israel is to exhaust this possibility of reaching a long-term cease-fire. As Prime Minister, I have the responsibility, and it is the highest responsibility, to make the right steps to ensure our security. That is what I have done and it is what I will continue to do.

When Obama was reelected with almost 70% of the Jewish vote, the green light was given to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood to move ahead with their sworn goal of wiping Israel off the map.

The lingering question is whether Obama is an aggressive supporter of obliterating the Jewish State or if he is simply ambivalent and willing to let the outcome be decided by others. His pronounced support for the Muslim Brotherhood and rushed funding of their new government in Egypt seems to indicate the first option is quite likely.

I know Bibi doesn't want war.

But Sadly the only way to avoid more war is this.

Only when the People of Gaza fear Israel will they stop listening to Hamas or the Muslim Brotherhood.

Oh, P.S. all the Future Israeli deaths that will take place when this Ceasefire is broken on Hilary Clinton's hands.

I hope she has a special place in Hell.

That secular American Jewish vote doesn’t mean squat. The votes of Israeli-American Jews was the polar opposite.

Americans support and back Israel by a huge majority. The Marxist had better back Israel to the hilt.

I'm waiting for Hillary to come back to the US waving a piece of paper signed by Khaled Mashaal from Hamas proclaiming "Peace for our time."

If she does, she could well be the Antichrist. The Antichrist will offer Israel a protected peace under his—or her—wing.

Translation = He was forced by the U.S. to make the deal or face a cut off of aid, both military and civilian.

The Israelis know the score here. The animals will continue to fire rockets and attempt murder wherever and whenever possible. They bombed, strafed and did as much damage to the enemy as was possible in the short window they were given by events.

This little dance will begin again. Soon.

one of my greatest fears, was that the muslim would be re-elected and Israel would have to face this threat alone.

I pray for the survival of Israel.

You can’t deal with the islamist/fascists.

kill them all.

blessings,bobo

A friend in Israel sent me this link. Here's the latest on how well Hamas is keeping the cease fire.

12:12 AM (Thursday) As rockets continue to fall on Israel, the official IDF blog announces the end of Operation Pillars of Defense.

11:18 PM 20 rockets against Israel since cease fire began

11:08 PM 11 year old child hurt in first round of Gazan cease fire missiles

11:01 PM Hamas and Islamic Jihad declare the cease fire to be an Israeli failure.

10:58 PM Nachal Oz, Alumim, Sdot Hanegev, Shaar Hanegev

10:45 PM Iron Dome shoots down post-Cease Fire Rocket

Savages will be savages.

Nobody in their right mind would want to enter Gaza, unless it was to slaughter a few million Hamas.

I know you’re right.
We’ll continue to pray and Bibi has not removed any of the troops from the front lines.
He knows.

There have been suckers, but I don't think PM Netanyahu is one of them. The article posted at the top of the thread attributes this statement to him:
I realize that there are citizens who expect a harsher military action and we may very well need to do that.
If, as appears likely, Hamas et al continue to fail to honor the cease fire, he will probably respond militarily and forcefully. "World opinion" will, of course, be against Israel and favor the savages, but there's no help for that. He did the best he could by agreeing to a twenty-four hour cease fire with further negotiations to follow if it held.
