nymag.com ^ | 7/16/14 | Joe Coscarelli

Posted on 07/16/2014 11:19:33 AM PDT by Nachum

Following yesterday's failed cease-fire, an Israeli naval gunboat has reportedly struck seven children near the port in Gaza, killing at least four. One remains in critical condition. Moments earlier, the kids had been playing soccer with a reporter from NBC, who witnessed the attack firsthand. Dozens of other journalists were nearby.

Every Hamas rocket that is destroyed before it hits, needs to have an accompanying report stating that if it had landed would have killed or maimed Israelis’ and state the number.

It must have been a coincidence that the NBC reporter was there.

How long before we find out they are Iraqi Kurds killed 13 years ago by Saddam. I beleive nothing that comes out of the Middle East. Well, unless Oliver North says it’s so.

Yep, the reporters were right there to ride herd on the Israelis, and make sure they weren’t doing anything wrong.

Never mind the thousands of missiles sent into Israel with close-ups of damage and sobbing parents.

Tell us brain-trusts, was Israel sending in munitions before the recent rocket attacks? Then whose fault is it that these kids died?

It is a shame. But, I remember the Palestinian women ululating and handing out candy on 9/11. It's hard to forget.

The Israeli military has said it provides evacuation warnings for targeted areas to minimize civilian deaths, but according to NBC foreign correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin, “They don’t take those warnings seriously”

Well... maybe they should have.

I don’t know the circumstances here but I have observed over many years the phenomenon of Arabs (a) gathering at scenes of violence rather than running from them, (b) intentionally putting children into dangerous situations, and (c) failing, whether intentionally or otherwise, to take commonsense precautions to avoid being injured. So I don’t know if playing soccer on this particular beach in the middle of a war was objectively unreasonable or not. But oftentimes it turns out that there was more to the story.

Ones who need their kids out of the house so they can set up the rocket launcher.

4 Palestinian kids killed in a single Israeli airstrike. Minutes before they were killed by our hotel, I was kicking a ball with them #gaza

Sounds like they were killed some minutes prior to the airstrike! Was this a Palie hotel or an Israeli hotel? Just wondering what nationality hotel is responsible...

Since Muzzies appear to be rather “challenged” when it comes to logic, let’s try an approach that even an Obamadork can understand.

1. Don’t launch rockets from around your neighborhood into Israel.

2. Then, you will not get your slimy muslim *ss handed to you by the Israelis.

So many “journalists” in the vicinity. Have any of them caught video of terrorists firing missiles into Israel?

Did any of them call out “war crime”?

“Oh... wait. There were DOZENS of JOURNALISTS nearby.

What were they doing there ?”

The two part answer is obvious:
1. The Israelis were not shooting at the kids playing soccer.
2. The Israeli ship fired on the journalists.

The Guru points out the need for more live fire practice.

I noiticed this whine in the article and felt it worthy of a reply.

“However, many do not heed the warnings because Hamas dismisses them as psychological propaganda – and because it is not immediately clear where Palestinians are supposed to go while the entire Gaza Strip is under threat of Israeli airstrikes.”

Under the “Sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander” premise, clearly the Palisimians should go into the sea. After all, that is where they always claim the Jews should be.

Glub, glub, glub.

from the NBC story: "appeared to be from Israeli naval shelling"

Not likely. This was anything from an Hamas accident to a deliberate Hamas false-flag operation for the propaganda benefit of the assembled reporters.

That hotel in Gaza is in the prime tourist beachfront of the Gaza port area. It is highly unlikely that the Israeli navy would have been shelling that area.

The NBC story also said that a boy was hit by shrapnel. Is this likely from naval shelling?

Ayman Mohyeldin Jumps To NBC News From Al Jazeera English

Writing on Facebook, Mohyeldin said that he was proud of his reporting for Al Jazeera, and wanted to bring the kind of work he did to an American audience:

“Through wars and revolution, our reporting at Al Jazeera English has changed the news landscape forever, helping shed light and placing in proper context the world’s stories from regions often neglected while challenging the stereotypes, misperceptions and misinformation that comes out of these places...I couldn’t possibly pass on the opportunity to report these historic times to an American audience with the hopes of making a positive difference in the way the US understands the region, challenging stereotypes and misunderstandings.”

war is hell.
the aggressors like Nazi Germany suffered Dresden (saturation bombing) (and many more destroyed cities)
the aggressors like Japan suffered Hiroshima and Nagasaki
the IslamoNazi aggressors will inevitably suffer some destroyed cities, too

what goes around comes around, even to Nazis
or IslamoNazis
they think they are invulnerable... and they do a tremendous amount of damage before good people finally wake up and defend against them................but in the end, the Nazis or IslamoNazis or hateful aggressors of any other stripe......are not invulnerable.

Expect many thousands more casualties .... and thousands more heart-wrenching articles about children being killed in front of reporters

bomb innocent cities and towns, over and over and over and over again, and eventually even those damned Jooos wake up and fight back

amazing, isn’t it?

anyway, expect many thousands more casualties, of all age groups....

alas. such is our existence on Rock Three. Either fight back or be murdered by Nazis, IslamoNazis, Communists, Community Organizers, any label you want. They’re all pretty much the same pile of ex.....
