An image on Twitter of rockets sailing toward London's Houses of Parliament is the Israeli military's official response to criticism of its ongoing offensive in Gaza.

Captioned "What Would You Do?" the fake photo appeared Monday on the official Twitter account of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).

The Palestinian militant group Hamas has fired more than 1,000 missiles from Gaza into Israel since hostilities between the two sides escalated into exchanges of rockets and airstrikes beginning July 9.

The greater civilian death toll on the Palestinian side of the conflict has prompted criticism of Israel's military offensive, which last week became a ground campaign to root out missile launch sites and to close off tunnels used by Hamas to move weapons and fighters.

The IDF has done the same on their Facebook site.

I think it’s an excellent tool to use against all of the anti-Israel Euroweenies out there.

Hamas kicks over a hornets nest. Complains that it got stung. World agrees.

It’s not what they “would” do, it’s what they DID do with the Luftwaffe’s blitz.

Why does Israel even need to do this, at all?

If there were a significant number of Britons still alive who remembered the V-1s, V-2s and the Battle of Britain, that might’ve had an impact. As it is, I’ll bet it’ll be written of as “Zionist propaganda” or some such.

Once it happened—remember V-2? they carried a lot more explosives too. Any nation that suffered rocket attack would respond—The wave of Anti-Semitism is what is fueling the move for Israel to just take it! The Iron Dome has proven to be a PR problem for Israel—by stopping the rockets it makes it appear as if only the Gaza Children face death. In truth its a war—and people die. It must be finished! One side must clearly win and one side lose—by doing these Peace breaks—only prolongs the pain. You know what would happen is Hamas wins and takes over Israel? Would they declare peace? No—it would be a bloodbath.

The liberal, Jew-hating world thinks that terrorists attacks should be met with “in kind” responses and that it just isn’t “fair” that the terrorists are suffering more losses than the Israelis. Screw ‘em. Israel’s right to peacefully exist outweighs the anti-Semites delicate sensibilities of fairness.

At least the Israelis are not trying to pass off the photos as legitimate:

The Brits killed 25,000+ in one night fire bombing Dresden. I don’t think they distributed any pamplets or “knocked” on any roofs prior to the destruction.

Maybe it would satisfy the liberals if Israel would just launch one-for-one, randomly aimed, unguided rockets back into Gaza!

Only if Israel turned off its Iron Dome missile interceptor system and allowed Hamas to indiscriminately murder Jews.

They could turn it off over the Dome of the Rock and let a few fall there...

Good. Sure did a lot to cure the Germans' thirst for war, didn't it?

Air Chief Marshal Sir Arthur "Bomber" Harris was unavailable for comment. So were Dresden and many other German cities.

Ed Zackery but if the Israelis were to do that to the Pali’s the Brits (and the rest of the dying West) would be screaming war crime.

The new liberal mantra is “proportionality”.

Like Israel can't bomb Hamas in Gaza back to the stone-age if they only kill a few Jews.

I guess the leftist position that Jews should just die didn't focus group as well as demanding they respond "proportionally."

England responded, with American and Canadian help, to the German rocketing of London with the carpet-bombing of German cities.

Israel has the same right, and that it doesn’t indiscriminately bomb Gaza is a tribute to the morality under which the IDF operates.

That more Palestinians have died in the last couple weeks than Israelis is due to the intense desire, and significant investment, by Israel to protect its citizens with a missile defense, an early warning system and bomb shelters. The Paleoswinians, instead of even building bomb shelters, build tunnels from which they plan(ned) to attack and murder or kidnap Israeli civilians. They warn their citizens NOT to leave a building tha Israel warns is about to be attacked!! Why? Because the leadership (elected by a huge majority of the population) WANTS its own civilians to be killed or wounded.

There IS no comparison of the 2 sides, just as there is no comparison between the reactions of England and Israel to being bombed. England, the US (which is to say, our traitorous leadership) and others criticizing Israel for defending itself with tremendous restraint need to do the world a simple favor: STFU!!!

Yup. When Werner von Braun's biopic came out in the early 60s it was titled "I aim at the stars" ...

A Brit critic informally added "But I sometimes hit London."

They should make another with DC instead and tweet that out, too.

Official English-language Iranian news had Jar Jar Binks in their missile launch photoshop. Zoomed in:

What should Israel do?—simple build rockets like the palis have, only bigger and better—But with no controls so they can’t be guided. When they fire one at Isreal—fire ten back. Keep this up until the rockets stop coming. See what happens when they hit hospitals, mosques, schools, what ever. Maybe they should build V-1 sorts of rockets and launch these buzz bombs at Gaza. a Blitz of destruction for a full year! Nothing in or out—a blocade until Hamas quits or their are no people left in Gaza.
