Hamas Calls For New 24-Hour Truce After Israel Resumes Attacks
NBC News ^ | 07/27/2014 | AYMAN MOHYELDIN, YAEL FACTOR AND PAUL ZIAD NASSAR

Posted on 07/27/2014 8:04:29 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

GAZA CITY, Gaza — The militant group that rules the Gaza Strip asked for a cease-fire hours after Israel resumed attacks on the enclave. An Israeli army spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner did not say if Israel would hold fire during, adding that troops would continue demolishing militant tunnels.

And during an appearance on NBC's Meet The Press, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Hamas had not kept to any ceasefire agreement.

"We’ve accepted five ceasefires — Hamas has rejected every single one of them," he said.

Artillery fire and air strikes punctuated Israel's earlier announcement that it would resume fighting in Gaza, shattering a fragile peace that had allowed many Palestinians to search the rubble of their homes.

It's not cool or fashionable or even Politically Correct under the Obama administration but wasn't this phenomenon at one time called the “Axis of Evil”?

Boo Hoo! What's the point in a cease fire with someone commanded and sworn by their state/religion, to commit GENOCIDE against you?

Bounce that rubble, and bounce it again!

Israel knows what it’s doing in spite of what the MSM thinks it should do as well as the world’s leaders. It’s her survival.

OK, Israel agrees to a cease fire, Hamas never stops firing rockets. Israel doesn’t respond to the rocket attacks but focuses on the tunnels Hamas drug into Israeli territory. Hamas “resumes firing” but really they never stopped. When will they bring back real journalism again?

Israel needs to root out the filth, tunnels and lies... Hamas needs to lose - not just be given time to reload, but to lose. To go away. To quit.

Then - and only then should they consider the possibility of stopping. Benjamin Netanyahu will know when it’s time.

Sorry, THIS IS ALL THE JOURNALISM you will get, because the ‘journalists’ are bought and paid for by an oligarchy that doesn’t want you to have the truth, only what ‘they’ tell you.

Dear Benjamin Netanyahu,
86% of Israelis want hamas ended. I agree with the 86% that want hamas ended. Is time, Sir.

Check out the names of these “journalists” for NBC: AYMAN MOHYELDIN, YAEL FACTOR AND PAUL ZIAD NASSAR. Perhaps the 2nd one is Jewish, but likely he is self-loathing and first worships the Gods of Leftism.

That's why the Kenyan born twice unconstitutionally elected subhuman piece of rat slime tried to put the Muslim brotherhood in charge of Egypt. But unlike the Democraps, Egyptians really don't like living under terrorists, which unfortunately we are living under right now here in the USA thanks to Democraps.

When your enemy asks for a 24 hour truce, you know you’ve got them on the run. It’s time to double down and kick their butts harder. The truce gig never worked for the U.S. in Vietnam. Israel needs to remember that.

Netanyahu will hold firm as long as the Israelis and the cabinet keep pressing him to expand the operation and wipe out Hamas. If support dwindles, then in my opinion so will his backbone.

Fortunately, Israelis of all stripes, including the leftists in the government and even at Ha’aretz, the leftist newspaper in Israel, are openly contemptuous of John Kerry and his advocacy for Hamas and its sponsors Qatar and Turkey. Even Mahmoud Abbas, who many, if notost, Istaelis believe is a sub rosa enemy of Israel, is furious with US foreign policy at this point.

Why isn't the Obama Administration making checks out directly to North Korea for these arms? John Kerry could deliver the check to North Korea in person... all the democrat filth could cheer him on...

Hamas could just put down their weapons and surrender. They are being destroyed, have not won even 1 firefight. They have no chance of winning this battle that they started.
Or they can just keep fighting, hate takes away common sense. More will die but the writing is on the wall

Are you saying John Kerry has united all sides by being so offensive that no one wants to deal with him?

What's next?

North Koreans refusing to sell missiles to Hamas if they deal with John Kerry? Maybe there's hope after all...

That will only work until the next wave of Kill-the-Jews holy warriors arrive on the scene. Then Israel will have to do it all over again, just as they have been doing since 1948.

Being a “Good Guy” is not defined by whether or not you “eradicate” your enemy. The common mistake made in the modern era is to place absurd restrictions upon our armed forces.

The enemy will use practically any method or tactic to win. While there may be a few lines it wouldn’t be prudent to “cross”, the ultimate objective should be to pulverize your adversary until they no longer have the will to fight, even if that means in the end you must eradicate your enemy.

To hold back while waging war is the height of folly, especially if you want to look like a “Good Guy”. We have handcuffed our warriors to the point that the enemy now knows they simply have to wait until we grow weary of war and pull back. Once that occurs, our enemy is free to recuperate and rearm.

I believe Israel has been hoodwinked into being too ‘sweet’ at times... by a world community that’s not all it should be... there’s reasons...

Jews were like orphans for much of history. Other kids could bully them because ‘other kids’ had a ‘big father at home who would kick butt... Jews didn’t have that advantage - the advantage of having a home country. So they learned other skills to survive. Those skills were important but have been working against them in their dealings with the Palestinians...

Israel needs to kill all the Hamas leadership, destroy all their weapons, take out tunnels, destroy the infrastructure that supports Hamas. But NO, they don’t need to kill Palestinian civilians.

Mutually assured destruction’s a good idea too. If Israel gets nuked, places like Iran need to understand they’ll be destroyed. Israel needs to let the world know they’re all grown up, a serious world leader player, and a force NOT to be messed with...

I am in agreement, and I don’t think most people would want a wholesale slaughter of the enemy unless that enemy was determined to the point of fighting to the last man, woman and child.

I think of WW2 Japan in this aspect and their mindset, not just the mindset of their leaders (such as Germany).

In the end, the populace supports the war machine of the combatants and in that sense are not so “innocent”, but they don’t need to be the primary target, although their factories that churn out weapons absolutely should be, along with the other logistical entities.

Forcing them to lose their will to fight does not have to incorporate genocide, but no matter how horrible war is, particularly when you are attempting to REALLY win, you MUST put the fear of eradication into the populace in order to change their predisposed mindset.

That lesson was learned in our past on a few occasions and seems to have been cast off in favor of “winning hearts and minds”. Stupid change. The hearts and minds you are winning weren’t the ones who were directly fighting you in the first place.

The "Common People" in Gaza are about 50% MEMBERS of Hamas.

I would not harm CHILDREN UNDER 15 AND WOULD NOT HARM ANYONE WHO FORESWEARS JIHAD.

And that is better treatment than the Christians in Mosul receive.
