Netanyahu: 'Hamas Will Pay' For The Killing Of 3 Israeli Teens

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has promised a strong response to the killing of three Israeli teens abducted from a highway junction outside of the West Bank settlement of Kfar Etzion on June 12.

The Israeli security cabinet is meeting to weigh possible responses to the teens' murders. Netanyahu ordered an extensive air campaign in the Gaza Strip in late 2012 in response to rocket attacks originating in the Hamas-controlled coastal area. While the campaign resulted in the deaths of several high-ranking Hamas operatives, including Hamas military chief Ahmed Jabari, the campaign ceased amid international pressure — and resulted in Israel lightening its control of goods and people entering the Strip.

So any large-scale action comes with risk. And for now there's still a chance that the kidnapping was the work of rogue Hamas cells, rather than a conspiracy ordered by the organization's top leadership.

"I don't think that we know enough to say anything conclusively as of yet," an IDF source told Business Insider. "We do know that the two suspects and their support staff are Hamas operatives, Hamas activists and Hamas affiliates. There's no question there. Is this part of something larger? That's still something that we're looking at."

Safe bet that he will do more than post a hash-tag.

Rogue Hamas or not - doesn’t matter. But then the real Hamas will jump up and say it was them not us, so we’re good, right? I hope Israel turns Gaza (or where ever Hamas hides out) into a glowing parking lot.

How can a rogue organization not have rogues?

the campaign resulted in the deaths of several high-ranking Hamas operatives, including Hamas military chief Ahmed Jabari,

Targeting Hamas operatives is a wise tactic.

I thought that Obama’s impassioned talk on the American teenager kidnapped in Israel will go a long way to helping to resolve the situation...

There should be a syntax error ...Hamas HAS paid.

I pray, by the time we get the next electronic transmission, it is past tense.

From, “What The Captains Mean Is”

Correspondent: I suppose, Captain, that you’ve flown missions to the South. What kind of ordnance do you use, and what kind of targets do you hit?

Captain: Well, I’ll tell you, mostly we aim at kicking the shit out of Vietnamese villages; and my favorite ordnance is napalm. Man, that stuff sucks the air out of their friggin’ lungs and makes a sonovabitchin’ fire.

PAO: What the Captain means is that air strikes in South Vietnam are often against Viet Cong structures and all operations are always under the positive control of forward air controllers, or FACs. The ordnance employed is conventional 500- and 750-pound bombs and 20-mm cannon fire.

Don’t we still have more of those napalm bombs somewhere we aren’t using?

Let’s quantify things. For a long time the Israeli policy, unofficially, was that 10 Paleo fighters would be killed for every Israeli murdered. Importantly, this meant 10 Paleo combatants for usually a non-combatant Israeli civilian.

Below the surface, this made sense as well, because Paleo fighters preferred to attack harmless civilians, like children and the elderly, precisely because they could not fight back, like Israeli soldiers.

Brave lions of Islam.

In any event, Israel has rather foolishly moved away from this policy, as well as extending endless patience at people who want to exterminate them.

Imagine these 3 laughing and innocent teenagers, only 16 and 19 years old, waiting to get a ride home from school. Then forced into a vehicle. Then brutally murdered at gunpoint. And then buried in a pit like dogs. Their only "crime" was being Jews.

Obama funded the terrorists who did this. He refuses to admit that Hamas and their Arab buddies are murderers. He continuously covers for their barbaric acts of savagery over and over again. Whatever Israel does to revenge these pure souls, they should tie Obama to a stake right in the middle of it. G-d damn him!

just for starters they should obliterate every building and facility, base, etc. known to have any connection with Hamas. Every last one....

Then decide what else to do in order to annihilate these vermin, as should have been done long ago.

Risking sounding like one of these cult of death worshipers, they need to be eradicated from the solar system.

I somehow don’t think BIbi means an Obama-like red line.
