“Satellites show Iran moving quickly to rearm Hamas”
Jerusalem Post ^ | 11/25/2012 09:54 | (JPost.com staff)

Posted on 11/25/2012 2:13:56 AM PST by Olog-hai

Israeli intelligence satellites have spied the loading of rockets and other materiel believed to be destined for the Gaza Strip, The Sunday Times reported citing Israeli officials.

According to the report, Iran began preparing the weapons shipment around the same time Israel and Hamas negotiated cease-fire understandings late last week.

The shipment is said to include Iranian-made Fajr-5 medium-range rockets, the same model that was fired into the Tel Aviv and Jerusalem areas during Operation Pillar of Defense, the Times reported. …

This truce is likely to cost Netanyahu the next election. Obama and his agents will work tirelessly to defeat Bibi and install a more compliant government in Israel. Obama is also helping Morsi in Egypt and is supporting the establishment of a Muslim dictatorship. The Arab Spring was a Trojan horse to create the Greater Caliphate which would unite the transnational Islamists in order to destroy Israel and expand Shariah law throughout the Middle East. Christians and Jews will be driven out or exterminated and all of this was led by Obama in his effort to topple secular dictators and replace them with Islamist governments.

If the present incarnation of Israel is the one targeted for blessing, Obama is going to be head to head with Jehovah. Guess who’ll lose THAT one.

Israel’s own intelligence satellites spotted this.

Ask yourself why Israel had to go to the enormous expense of putting up their own intelligence satellites when the US, their ally, has an awesome satellite intelligence network?

The answer is they could not rely on us for timely and accurate intel.

And given the zero that inhabits the white house now they were wise indeed.

A negotiated truce with a muslim party has a very specific meaning. It means the muslim party will use the time to regroup and re-arm. Bibi knows this.

Netanyahu was likely negotiating with the Muslim in the White House as much as anyone else.

Good points.

Israel may employ the Sampson option when they run low on defensive weapons (Dome). It’s going to get worse before it gets better.

-—— that was fired into the Tel Aviv and Jerusalem areas -—

and Jerusalem areas?

I can not understand the wisdom of firing unguided rockets into Jerusalem. Is not half or at least a significant portion of the city Palestinian? Are the West Bankers immune from the Gaza fired rockets?

Perhaps Bibi should educate the voters as to his situation and the likely blackmail barry is using?

I learned decades ago that when muslim want a cease fire... it simply means they are out of ammo and need time to resupply.

I have no idea why Israel hasn’t figured this out.

I don’t doubt for a minute that Israel hasn’t figured this out. I think Barry is behind this - he wants to be rid of Bibi. Mitt needs to give his pal Bibi a call and let him know that Barry Soetoro doesn’t have Israel’s best interest at heart. Heck, he doesn’t have America’s best interests at heart. I’m sure Mitt will do this asap./s

“Satellites show Iran moving quickly to rearm Hamas”

Well, Duh!

What else are 'cease fires' for?

Anyone who has watched the Islamists conflicts know that they have used this tactic many, many times: call for a cease fire to rearm and get ready for the next battle.

Israel and the West fall for it every time.

But, but NBC evening news last night had a whole segment on how the poor widdle Hamas, uh, no NBC didn’t say Hamas, ok, Iranian children had to crawl over the rubble caused by mean ‘ol Israel on their way to school. NBC showed their crayon drawings of Israeli missiles exploding around them, boo hoo. Odd how NBC didn’t report that Hamas started the war and didn’t honor the peace agreement and how many dads of those kids were Hamas who are targeting Israeli children.

Agree. They were getting their A’s kicked , so had to call for a time out.....

That way they can figure out how many Iron Dome devices are left, and bring
in enough missles to go past that point, and inflict damage.

Problem is, Israel will strike before they reach that point

Hamas will strike and Israel will never recover the next wave of rocket strikes. Israel lost it’s chance and was extremely foolish not cleaning out Gaza and take the land back.

OK; I’m laying here with my guts hanging out (Inoperable hernia) totally useless, so being unable to do much of anything else besides opine and bloviate, here goes:

Apparently Gaza blockade has been lifted, making the jihad ever so much easier. If Obama / Klintoon forced Bibi to submit to that, then the barbarians did in fact “win”...
Again.

IMHO the Obama Cabal has Israel over a barrel; without energy independence, a relatively small population and limited resources, Israel can’t sustain a protracted war with the whole damn world, and that’s just what they are going to get as soon as they invade or try to take back Gaza. Sharon sold them out by falling for the infamous “land for peace” scam and now they won’t be un-sold, even with the copious shedding of blood and treasure.

The Umma has set a trap for Israel and is using Gaza as their provocative bait. As soon as the IDF goes in on the ground, the trap will be sprung as the whole pack of jackals - Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, and probably a suddenly (albeit temporarally) re united Syria will promptly pounce on them. The US, while uttering political platitudes and admonitions, would probably stand there and watch, most likely feeding intel and covert logistical support to the Muslims while withholding it from the IDF or giving them intentionally treacherous “disinformation”.

Hilldebeast would shake her finger and sneer “We warned ya not to do that” as the UN imposed sanctions on IS for their “aggression”.

While the Gaza blockade is blown wide open for the Umma, a blockade probably would be imposed on Israel, cutting her off from an increasingly hostile world.

From a tactical standpoint, it’s a battle Israel can’t possibly win and would be unlikely to survive for very long.

What are Israel’s other options, if an effective defense is denied them?

They can back off and wait, which seems to be the present course.

Wait for what? (I think I just stole that line from the PM - thank you, Sir!)

No matter how much they capitulate to Hussein O., Hillary, the Umma and the “global community” it will never be enough... not until the last Jew is exterminated.

That will be a lot easier to accomplish, of course, once Iran’s nuclear warheads are ready to fly.

I’m pretty sure that PM Netanyahu knows that fact all too well.

The insatiable pack of barbarian jackals now surrounding Israel on every side will continue to stalk and nip at Israels heels as rocks and rockets continue to fly, and murdering Hajis seek out more victims to feed their prophet’s eternal blood lust on.

Whoa!; do I detect a few bulls among the encompassing packs of jackals and hyenas?
Psalm 22:12&13. ...Se’lah.
(I’m coming out of my old 1560 Geneva Bible here; what does your Torah have to say about it?)

Muslims are, by theological mandate as well as cultural tradition, relentless; the stress of continual terror has already taken it’s toll on the People of Israel, and if Islam can’t kill all the Jews and other “Kafir” they will darned sure make their lives as miserable as they possibly can. How much more of this psychological torture can the besieged Population take?

One way or another, Islam is determined to destroy the lives of any who dare to resist their pathological, supremacist tyranny.

I think that a lot of Israelis would rather die fighting the barbarians against impossible odds than to be reduced to quivering insanity from having to live in constant fear of them.
When Islam’s victim is driven to utter desperation it’s hard for them to be rational - and irrational impulsivity is an advantage that the Muslim always exploits.

I think that Mr. Netanyahu is being reluctantly rational given his limited options... but the Israeli people seem to be getting increasingly desperate and tempted to take Islam’s bait regardless of the menacing consequences.

Unwilling at least for now to charge headlong into the jackal’s trap, of which Gaza is probably the trigger plate, Israel can always cower and capitulate until the world eventually wears them down. Then what? We know that the Umma is never going to be satisfied, leave them alone or let up on them.
Total unconditional submission is the Muslim’s consistent historical demand upon it’s target civilizations, and in the case of Israel, submission probably equals extermination; Physical death to most, but lacking divine intervention, certain cultural and spiritual annihilation for all.

While vehemently denying that the Holocaust ever happened, Islam can hardly wait to finish the job.

If unrelenting terror and harassment does not ultimately win the day, there are always chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons in the wings.

Whatever it takes, Islam is determined to win - and in this case it’s winner take all. Islam always plays for keeps and mercy is not usually on the table as far as they are concerned - unless, of course, they are the exclusive recipients of it.

Will Israel be forced to the precipice of a national Masada and submit to genocide by the Muslim Headsman or gas chambers, or will they just stampede like a herd of helpless lemmings over the edge and into the sea, embracing extinction by suicide rather than rape, slavery and slaughter?

I really don’t think that’s going to happen - but what other choices does the “world” leave them?

Right now I’m sort of visualizing Israel as their old King David... only not at his finest hour when he took up his Shepherd’s sling against the terrible Philistine giant Goliath.
No; now I see him drooling in his beard, staggering around scratching at the door, running into things and mumbling incoherently, feigning (was he really?) insanity while he was on the run from Saul, in order to deceive Achish the King of Gath into sparing his life, not considering him or his Nation to be much of a threat. (1 Samuel 21:13)

Hardly the sort of behavior we expect from our heroes, is it?

And Lord, don’t we all need a hero right about now?

I find it ironic that David had the courage to confront the giant Goliath when he was armed only with a sling, but when he went to Gath packing that same giant’s mighty sword, he strangely turned coward.

Isn’t that the same sword which is depicted on the insignia of the IDF?

(Which just happens to appear on the breech of my old Israeli 7.62mm K-98 Mauser)

...Isn’t that the same sword which the esteemed PM rhetorically alluded to having one hand on recently?

I would think that if anything were to rust that venerable blade, it more ought to be the blood of Israel’s mortal enemies rather than the saliva of a blithering, cowardly King.

But then again I’m just a simple Yankee Goyim; what do I know?

Now that Islam’s demand that the blockade be lifted has been capitulated to, how long do you suppose it will take the barbarians to demand that the fences and gates protecting Israeli villages and settlements be torn down as well?
I fully expect that a cowed Israel will comply in order to establish another hudna “peace” treaty... and where will that leave them - both tactically and prophetically speaking?

(Clue: Ezekiel 38:11)

Has the sword of David, formerly the sword of Goliath, now rusted fast in his scabbard...

Or shall the Word of our Creator once again call upon His chosen People to draw it forth with a will, and with a mighty pillar of ancient, holy fire leading on, at last fulfill their prophetic destiny?

Shalom through Victory; Victory in Messhiach Adonai!

Why would the fact that there is a significant population of Palestinians in Jerusalem, or the fate of the West Bankers, mean anything to Hamas? The very name “Hamas” means “Violence”. Mosab Hasan Yousef (the fellow who wrote “Son of Hamas”) stated recently that the only purpose of Hamas to even exist is to cause destruction.

Israel should intercept the ship.
Bibi may be screwed. The natural reaction for the Israelis would be to vote to the right of Likud. They could vote for Yisrael Beiteinu (secular nationalists, mostly Russian, most are former Likud members) or National Union. Voting for Labour and the prostitutes in Kadima makes no sense, unless the Israelis think that they could curry favor with the Obama administration that way. However, given Obama's support for the Muslim Brotherhood (parent of Al Qaeda and Hamas) this makes no sense.

Iran has declared war upon the USA over and over again for decades.

They are behing virtually every conflict we are involved in with their advisors and munitions.

This needs to be addressed in a very strong way by our leaders and brought out in the open and delt with.
