Posted on 07/28/2014 10:28:25 AM PDT by Biggirl
Chris Wallace of Fox News Sunday asked Benjamin Netanyahu whether he was worried about "a third intifada." The Israeli prime minister replied that Hamas "wants to pile up" Gazan casualties in hope of instigating an uprising. In other words, he ducked the heart of the question.
Netanyahu should be worried. The Israeli public should be worried. All supporters of the Jewish state should be worriednot only about the prospect of current events spiraling out of control, but also about a confluence of demographic and social trends that threaten Israel's ability to manage the war of perceptions.

National (Communist) Journal? Seriously?
Best solution is total War against Hamas and the annihilation of the problem.
Well, even as the saying goes, a “broken clock is right twice a day!”
Ron Fournier-former Washington bureau chief for the AP.
Anything he writes is propaganda.
You got it.
Let HAMAS do the same NOW!
This isn’t one of those times, I think. Hatred to Israel is increasing, I believe. Om the other hand the country has not been so unified and optimistic, and willing to do what needs to be done, as it is now.
The first step in projecting a strong and positive image is that you have to have a strong and positive self-image. Israel has that self-image today. Once it addresses the acute problem of hamas terrorists and their bombs and terror tunnels, it can turn its attention to this secondary issue.
The problem is that, this time, America may side with the rampaging Islamic horde.
That is why Israel NEEDS to clean out the rats nest bigtime!
The leadership, but not the Americans.
This writer’s bringing poll numbers to a tank fight.
Ron Fournier issues a threat to Israel. I’m sure they will be very worried.
I wonder how this shill was even able to type his story while shaking his poms pomas and jumping up and down.
Yes, the government, not the people. But our military and our government are both directly controlled by the same man, so the question of which side he takes will determine who we bomb or don’t bomb.
After the destruction of the Aswan High Dam and the massive EMP attack over Iran, Israel’s enemies will have too much on their plate worrying about how to feed themselves to be able to wage war any longer.
MEDIA CODE PHRASE ALERT
Translation: things aren't going in the direction the media, including the writer, would like.
Fournier was on the John Bachelor show recently where he represented himself as a “call em as he sees them” straight down the middle kinda guy. Hilarious.
It needs to clean out Gaza now because it turns out that for at least tje past five years, and possibly 20, Hamas has been planning to commit the largest terrorist atrocity in Israel’s history. They were going to use their tunnels on Rosh haShana, one of the holiest days of the Jewish calendar, and take over 6 or so communities in southern Israel. They were going to kill people in those comminities and also take hostages into the tunnels with them. This was going to be the basis for a large-scale assault on the entire nation of Israel.
About 87 percent of Israel stands behind the operation and would like to see it expanded. It would take enormous pressure for Israel to leave before it is done.
This lefty prick is worried about perceptions and Bibi is worried about the existence of his country.
If push comes to shove, Bibi will unleash the nukes, and I couldn't agree with him more.
NUKE THE TERRORIST SAVAGES.
That wont be a problem for Israel. It will be a problem for the US and any other nation that comes against Israel in these last days. Here is just a sample of Gods promise to Israel and His warning to those who come against her.
Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.<<
Ezekiel 39:1 And you, son of man, prophesy against Gog and say, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech[a] and Tubal. 2 And I will turn you about and drive you forward, and bring you up from the uttermost parts of the north, and lead you against the mountains of Israel. 3 Then I will strike your bow from your left hand, and will make your arrows drop out of your right hand. 4 You shall fall on the mountains of Israel, you and all your hordes and the peoples who are with you. I will give you to birds of prey of every sort and to the beasts of the field to be devoured. 5 You shall fall in the open field, for I have spoken, declares the Lord God. 6 I will send fire on Magog and on those who dwell securely in the coastlands, and they shall know that I am the Lord.
1) Jam all communications in or out of Gaza;
2)Boot out the UN;
3)Boot out the international pro-Hamas press pool from Gaza, the West bank and Israel;
4)Do what is necessary to clean up the mess while no one is looking
Who cares about world opinion when your existence is at stake. If the US and the West continue to undermine Israel’s security, Israel could just as easily align with Russia. Israel would have to wean off the welfare though.
Israel is doing the right thing. It’s the upsurge in anti-semitism throughout the western world that is disturbing.
Israel just needs to keep destroying tunnels and getting the infrastructure in place so that it never happens again. With Egypt doing to it also, HAMAS basically cut Gaza off from the world.
Unless that is what HAMAS wants.
We did the right thing in the Gulf War by putting the press in a cage and only letting them report what we wanted reported. Allowing them full access in Iraq was a terrible mistake.
Virtually every piece I see coming out of Gaza or Israel is Hamas propaganda: Why do the Israelis tolerate it?
They need to clear out Gaza. Just march all the Palestinians to the West Bank.
They need to clear out Gaza. Just march all the Palestinians to the West Bank .and ferry them across to Jordan.
Anything he writes is propaganda.
Actually, you should read the whole thing before commenting.
Fournier is who he is. But, in this case, he is reporting how the conventional media has transitioned over time, from supporting Israel to now misrepresenting the conflict. And how the presence of social media now allows for reinforcing these misrepresentations.
It's an insightful report, well worth reading. And the trend does present a real risk to Israel, in terms of perceptions.
That is the nice version. I like this one better:
“Now this will be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the people who have gone to war against Jerusalem; their flesh will rot while they stand on their feet, and their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongue will rot in their mouth.”
Now that is when the Messiah comes but hey, it will happen.
“Its the upsurge in anti-semitism throughout the western world that is disturbing.”
I propose that opinion has not changed much in the native populations, or may have improved - it is the Muslim immigrants who explain the increase in anti-Semitism.
Yep. Glad somebody understands the dynamic. I have put forth the theory of us simply EMPing Iran if they get too close to a Nuke. Let Israel do it.
If multiple MidEast countries attack Israel and they have their back to the wall they will nuke Cairo, Tehran, and Damascus. Hopefully they won’t have to.
Hamas needs to be eliminated might as well do it now while the fight is on. Not worry about an intifada.
