Arutz Sheva Israel National News ^ | Monday, July 14, 2014 | Staff

Posted on 07/14/2014 9:49:04 AM PDT by Star Traveler

More than 100 targets eliminated on Monday alone; rocket count tops 1,000.

The IDF has struck more than 100 terror targets on Monday, officials announced Monday afternoon, totaling 1,535 targets eliminated since Operation Protective Edge began seven days ago.

Targets tackled Monday include 33 rocket launchers, eight missile production sites, four civilian homes used as command posts, and seven terror tunnels.

The Israeli Navy also attacked several medium-range rocket launching sites.

"The IDF is determined and will continue to attack terrorist targets systematically to cause significant damage to the Hamas terrorist organization, and will work for the destruction of terrorist networks that operate to harm Israeli citizens," the IDF Spokesperson's Office said in a statement Monday.

a good start. but barely a start. the Islamonazi threat has to be eliminated, not just “suffer some damage” — if the IslamoNazis are allowed to remain, they will just get new weapons from Iran and USA, new money from Saudi and Qatar and USA, and even more political support from USA

and they will start bombing Israel again.

(remember, O has over two more years)

I just wonder how effective it is. The IDF warns everybody ahead of time...

The warnings are for the Palestinian citizens to get out of the way. The over 1,500 terrorist targets destroyed are “just as destroyed” even when civilians are told to get out of the way.

Islamic terrorism will never be eliminated. We, in the West, will simply have to take precautions and measures against being attacked. It’s like someone saying that they are going to eliminate all the roaches or other vermin in the world ... really?! ... LOL ...

exactly right. What the hell kind of army even thinks to warn the enemy to get out of the way of its operations?
This may be “humanitarian” but I doubt it. It only results in leaving the enemy alive.... who then get more weapons from Iran and USA, more money from Qater, Saudi, and USA, and even more political support from O in WashDC

and then the IslamoNazi enemies just start bombing and murdering more Israelis.

How is this “humanitarian?” It is NOT. The more humanitarian thing to do would be to fight a war as if you knew what you were doing....and kill your enemies.

Simple
Direct
and any other nation on planet earth would do the same (or eventually perish)

Israel giving warnings so its enemies can get out of the way is just another example of Jewish Suicide Syndrome

You don’t eliminate the Muslim Brotherhood or Hamas (they are compatriots of one another in the region). You can do like Israel and Egypt does ... which is to severely degrade their capabilities and capacity to inflict damage. But ... “eliminate” (as in finish the job) ... no, that will never happen.

it is not effective to give warnings ...making sure most of your enemies stay alive

at least it is not effective insofar as defending your home and country

it is only effective at facilitating or enabling future enemy attacks on your home and country

in other words, STUPID AS SH8T!
Israel needs to “grow up” and defend herself for REAL, and stop playing children’s games with her IslamoNazi enemies

Israel is killing all the Hamas operatives they can. Just because Israel avoids killing Palestinian civilians doesn’t mean they avoid killing Hamas operatives.

Yeah, that pisses me off. The only way to reduce Palestinian terrorism is to reduce the number of Palistinians. They should be carpet bombing, not surgical strikes.

If you don’t think Israel has defended itself very well since 1948 all the way to this present time ... then you don’t know “Israel” very well ... :-) ...

When no one else in the world thought Israel could survive ... many times over again ... it has continued to do so.

And it hasn’t done so by playing children’s games ... LOL ...

1,535 targets hit... is that 0.1% of the total?

Israel doesn’t commit WAR CRIMES like their enemies LIE about Israel doing. The enemies of Israel LIE ALL THE TIME and say that Israel is targeting Palestinian civilians instead of Islamic terrorist operatives. To have someone “feign support” for Israel by saying that it should commit WAR CRIMES is actually giving out the Hamas Propaganda!

When you fight a war like WWII, you win like WWII. War is hell. When a civilian populous becomes complacent with radicals using mortars and rockets on their neighbors, expect to get retaliation.

If my neighbor set up a mortar and told me he was going to drop indirect mortar fire on the "other side of the tracks", I would call the police and be ready to kill him if he dropped a round in the tube. Where are the Palistinians when Hamas/ISIS/Hezbolah set up their weapons? WHERE!? They are passing out candy my friend. They are complicit in war crimes. When the IDF retaliates and takes out the whole block, I call that justice for their active and passive complicity.

When you fight like WWII, you win like WWII, and if Israel wants to survive, it cannot use a pink feather to tickle its opponents.

Israel knows how to fight wars and how to fight terrorists. They’ve been around that and through all that - even more so than any other country in the world, including the USA - from 1948 forward. They also know how to NOT commit war crimes, and that’s what they do “by law” (their own internal law) and “by purpose” (their own decision).

They need to eliminate a few Paleostinian propaganda TV stations while they’re at it.

"If my neighbor set up a mortar and told me he was going to drop indirect mortar fire on the "other side of the tracks", I would call the police and be ready to kill him if he dropped a round in the tube"

Except in Gaza, your neighbor with the mortar also has goons with AK47s pointed at the head of your spouse and children, so you politely put down the phone.

Knock them back to, er, before the stone age. They already live like BC.

Don't stop until they cry like babies and surrender.
