Posted on 07/31/2014 6:30:26 AM PDT by DeoVindiceSicSemperTyrannis
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu opened a special security cabinet session Thursday morning to address the IDF's ongoing Operation Protective Edge.
"The IDF will continue to operate in the Gaza Strip with full strength" until the job is done, the Prime Minister said - and not before.
In particular, Netanyahu said that IDF forces had succeeded in destroying dozens of "terror tunnels" dug by Hamas into Israel, noting that the terrorist group was likely planning to kidnap Israeli soldiers and civilians.
He said that he was confident that the IDF could shut down Hamas's tunnel network and emphasized that even were a ceasefire to be reached Israel would continue to destroy the tunnels.
"Until now, we have destroyed dozens of terror tunnels and we are determined to complete the mission with or without a ceasefire. I will not agree to any proposal that does not allow for this."
The prime minister claimed Hamas had suffered serious damage in the fighting, with hundreds of fighters killed and hundreds more military positions, rocket launchers and weapons stockpiles destroyed. Several senior Hamas commanders have also been killed or captured.
The current military operation is "only the first phase in the demilitarization of the Gaza Strip," Netanyahu added, saying that he had communicated that message clearly to American, European and other international leaders.
He also praised the soldiers of the IDF, as well as Chief of Staff Benny Gantz and Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon for their "extraordinary" efforts during the operation, and assured the Israeli public that the government was working "day and night" to secure the citizens of Israel.

Stay Strong, Bibi.
Why can’t he be OUR president?
Still hammering.. (LIVE)
Do what needs to be done. Forget Obama, most of america already has..
We are behind you..
(and when your done there, we have an opening as president for ya!)
Because he doesn’t support terror and that disqualifies him according to Democrats.
He could get the job done more quickly using the right tools...
paging Sam Cohen, paging Sam Cohen...
Isn’t it amazing that there are so many Jews in the Democrap party, and none of them are speaking out against the traitor Obama and the traitor John Kerrys support of Hamas?
Calling Chuck Schumer, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Dianne Feinstein, Steve Israel, Steve Cohen, Adam Schiff, Carl Levin on and on ...How does it feel to be a member and supporter of the United states version of the Nazi party?
Y E S
About F ing time... I love you Bibi, but you have stopped time and again. Finish it.
Chazak u’baruch, Bibi!
Wipe them out. All of them.
I wish BiBi all the luck in the world. I know he faces a mountain of opposition from the world. Even our own president in the USA supports Hamas (I have no idea why) over Israel. I hope Israel prevails and shows the world they can beat even the US intervention of helping the Hamas.
Ya, I wish....
Ani omedet 'im Yisrael!
That is the General Paton way. Fight until there is a clear winner. The other side has to surrender. None of this cease fire crap.
Ya, especially since a top Hamas official said that any ceasefire should include international forces on the 1967 borders....
Will we ever be blessed with leaders that can assure the American public that the government was working "day and night" to secure the citizens of the USA?
Where is our "American Defense Force" that will clear the offices and hallways of Washington from the infestation by the enemies of our Constitution as does the IDF clears the tunnels of their enemies.
Does America have a Bibi Netanyahu? Do we have at least one leader who will stand tall and say NO MORE! WE WILL NOT NEGOTIATE! WE WILL NOT ACCOMMODATE! WE WILL TAKE NO PRISONERS!!!
With respects to you and Patton, Patton would have called out the entire
million man strong Army by now and there would not be one jihadi fighter breathing air inside Gaza.
In the news, Patton would be walking down the still smoking Pali streets with his pearl handled .45’s drawn looking for a fighter to kill or directing tank traffic.
All that said, the Israelis are doing a GOOD job and deserve a lot of credit!
Correction, they were ivory handled.
Patton had an engraved, silver plated, ivory gripped SAA, Single Action Army, that he bought in El Paso on March 5, 1916 and killed two of Pancho Villa's lieutenants with and an ivory gripped, S&W .357 registered magnum, shipped to him from the Smith & Wesson factory on October 18, 1935. The belt and holsters for Patton's Colt .45 and Smith & Wesson .357 were made by S.D. Myers of El Paso, Texas.
"Only a pimp in a cheap New Orleans cathouse carries pearl handled revolvers."
Bibi do yourself a favor and stop taking Barry and Kerry’s calls for a week or two. Your blood pressure will go back to normal and your head won’t explode.
We sooo need a leader like Bibi
...........Wow!...........VERY INTERESTING!..........thanks for the information! Excellent!
My point still stands though that were Patton in charge of the superb Israeli Army in Gaza right now and left unfettered by politicians the baby and woman killers known as Hamas would literally be exterminated!
