Israels armed forces have distributed an image of Londons Houses of Parliament under missile attack, posing the question: What would you do?
The militarys bid to justify its actions comes on the day five patients were killed in their beds as Israeli bombs hit a hospital in Gaza.
The strike on the Al Aqsa Hospital, in the town of Deir el-Balah, was the fourth attack by Israeli forces on a medical facility this month.
The Israel army did not comment on the incident but has previously accused militants of firing rockets from locations close to schools and hospitals.
There were renewed international efforts to broker a ceasefire, with UN chief Ban Ki-moon and US secretary of state John Kerry flying to Cairo for talks.
Well if it was 1940, we know the Brits would fight back. Flash foreword 74 years, not so much for no other reason than the millions of hordes they have willingly allowed to pollute that once great country.
Seems as though London has forgotten an incident that happened say oh, about 70 or so years ago.
no need to speculate: When Germany attacked London during WWII
“The destruction of German cities, the killing of German workers, and the disruption of civilized community life throughout Germany [is the goal]. ... It should be emphasized that the destruction of houses, public utilities, transport and lives; the creation of a refugee problem on an unprecedented scale; and the breakdown of morale both at home and at the battle fronts by fear of extended and intensified bombing are accepted and intended aims of our bombing policy. They are not by-products of attempts to hit factories.” — “Air Marshal Arthur Harris to Sir Arthur Street, Under Secretary of State, Air Ministry, October 25, 1943” quoted in Tami Biddle, Rhetoric and Reality in Air Warfare: The Evolution of British and American Ideas about Strategic Bombing, 1914-1945 (Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 2002), p. 220.
Love it. “Back at ya!”
Really like Canada’s PM.
Wouldn't look to the White House this time round.
Gaza should be treated no differently than Dresden, Hamburg and Berlin.
Fight like WWII, end like WWII.
My only objection is how Israel always seems to pull back before the job is done, much like not completing a full regimen of antibiotics which allows the surviving nasties to come back more virulent than ever.
Churchill was honored right after the war with removal from office.
We already know what they did. They fire-bombed entire cities at night while they were sleeping.
Israel should just carpet bomb Gaza like England carpet bombed Germany.
The contrast in the Middle East could not be more stark. Israeli soldiers stand in front of Israeli citizens, while the brave Muslims fight behind their own women and children. And where Israel targets only combatants and checks its fire when noncombatants are spotted too close, Muslims lob unguided rockets into Israeli cities. It is shameful how the growing Jew-hatred throughout the UK and Europe has clouded the memories of WWII's horrors. Israel is showing far more restraint than we would display in similar circumstances.
