Skip to comments.Israel Asks London: What Would You do if You Were Under Attack?
Posted on 07/21/2014 4:26:11 PM PDT by nickcarraway
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.
(What Would Bomber Harris Do?)
Because he didn’t believe in socialism.
Israel needs to clean out the viper nest....completely this time....
Didn't you notice that whenever Israel gets close to finishing up a good stomping the USA (and the UN) start cutting deals like crazy to save the muslims skin?
It has happened in every war and hot conflict that I can recall.
It happened in the Six Day War and it happened in the Yom Kippur War.
As an example -
Think about how Condi Rice brokered a cease fire in Lebanon in 2006 to save Hezbollah just as Israel was gaining the upper hand.
Condi made all sorts of promises, chief among them to prevent Hezbollah from rearming.
But once Israel forces pulled out and Hezbollah was safe all the promises went out the door.
The next day the rearming began.
The comments at Metro are especially moronic. Lots of Judenfressers on this one.
I don't know, incinerate tens of thousands of civilians?
The Israelis, under much greater duress, are handling their operations with far, far greater precision, and "compassion" if you will, than the British ever did (taking into consider technological advances etc), even as Israel faces a population far more strongly dedicated to warmaking and terror than, say, the civilian population of Dresden.
And what does Israel get in return for keeping their morality? Condemnation from the clowns of Europe and the US gov, who would apparently like to see Israel annihilated and replaced by a bunch of bloodthirsty cavemen.
I want to encourage ALL FREEPERS to jump all over this Facebook page . It belongs to Ann Wright , a close associate of Medea Benjamin and Code Pink. Wright presents herself as a former U.S. Army Col. (R) and is one of the biggest organizers of anti-Israel / pro-Hamas rallies and initiatives in the U.S. Wright also goes along on every single Gaza blockade busting attempt . I believe she could be a paid Iranian agent . The U.S. does nothing to rein her in , so perhaps the least we could do is go after her Facebook organizing site ?
FREEP AT WILL !
I’m having trouble finding the link, can you post it?
Sorry, found it.
I’m not sure if the Brits would have appreciated it very much if the Jews around the world, back then, told England to SUCK IT UP when the blitz was going on.
The greatest threat to the Western world is Islamic terrorism. Israel is fighting against this form terrorism. So why is the Western world condemning Israel? And what are the consequences of its doing so?
If the London newspapers excoriate Israel’s army for attacking Hamas in self-defense, how will the British army be able to justify fighting back against Islamic terrorists when they finish conquering Iraq and Syria and come for the British?
If IDF soldiers are condemned as evil for causing the unavoidable deaths of children, then British soldiers will not be able to emulate the IDF in its defensive actions, and Britain will inevitably be destroyed.
The same will be true for America. If the New York Times continues to portray Israeli soldiers as villains instead of heroes for protecting their people while presenting the poor, dead children of Gaza as Israel’s victims rather than Hamas’s former human shields, how many New York Times readers will be signing up to take up arms to protect their Iron-Domeless city when Islamic rockets start hitting Times Square?
The truth shall make you free, but the lies of the New York Times shall make you dead.
England would do nothing. They have turned themselves into nancyboys. WWII would be an easy win for Germany these days.
I think that's what the Israelis are hinting at in this jab at the U.K., without coming out and saying it bluntly.
If Gaza was turned into rubble like in WWII and the Hamas leadership ended up like Mussolini, the rocket attacks would be shut down completely.
Somebody needs to tell the Israeli leaders that when someone says they are going to kill you, believe them and kill them before they can kill you. This kissy face way of fighting the Hamas is not a winner.
For they sow the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind. Hosea 8:7
When weapons are blunted, and ardor dampened, strength exhausted, and resources depleted, the neighboring rulers will take advantage of these complications.
I come in peace, I didn’t bring artillery. But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, I’ll kill you all.
Marine General James Mattis
And the 8th followed up the next day.
If we Brits are nancyboys, then you sure as hell aren’t the men of 1941 either.
That was as stupid statement to make. One has nothing to do with the other. Thanks for making my point. Nancyboys are stupid boys.
You are saying the British have fallen far from what they were in 1940, and I am simply saying that Americans equally have fallen far from what they were in 1941 and Pearl Harbour. Both nations have fallen far from the admirable people they were 70 years ago.
