The Palestinian welfare squatters started this. Time to stop this “tit for tat” and hit the Palestinians so hard that they’ll remember when tempted to make trouble again. And, while you’re at it, somebody please blow the Dome of The Rock off the planet.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Interesting. If I was the IDF, I wouldn't want American Embassy personel south of Tel Aviv either. Or anywhere near military deployments. Sad thing to say. But were I an Israeli, I wouldn't trust American diplomats.
Israel, you are on your own just as America now is.
You mean “Americans” now are. There truly is no more America the way you use it.
Nope. The child in chief is. He’s also a muslim too.
Remember, they’re rockets of peace.
And Obama fiddles his shnizzle...
He would rather have a fundraiser in Gaza, than help out “our” ally, Israel...
Kinda fits into his way of dealing with the problems these days...
Where is our fearless Secretary of State? He and his buddy Obungho have done a real smash up job of global politics.
Everyone is at each others throats. This is all not going to end well.
I see an attack on the US on the horizon. Obungho pays no attention, he is busy helping foreign illegals destroy America, and this is why we are in danger. Could be an attack would please him.
I’m John Kerry and I approve of this message!
Rockets landed in the Jerusalem neighborhoods of Mevasseret, Beit Shemesh and Abu Ghosh.
Rehovot, Nes Tziona and Yavne were also hit along with Ashdod, Ashkelon, Kiryat Gat, Kiryat Malakhi, Netivot and Ofakim.
One person was injured.
where are those in relation to the airport?
.......with terrorists able to just “walk right in” our borders I’m wondering what on earth would stop them from setting up in the woods outside any city in the U.S. and firing off a few missiles and then hauling ass............??
Just wondering? Missing radioactive material for a dirty bomb attached? Thousands of dead???
Those places are relatively far from the airport, but everything is within a 1 hour drive.
I wonder of Palies use the airport. I assume most of them don’t fly. Do they have an airport?
