Netanyahu: Gaza Campaign Continues Until Calm Restored [Seven hour humanitarian ceasefire ends]
Voice of America ^ | 08/04/2014

Posted on 08/04/2014 9:53:14 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Israel will not stop its military campaign in Gaza until long-term calm is restored, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday, at the end of a seven-hour humanitarian lull in fighting.

“The campaign in Gaza is continuing. This operation will only end when quiet and security is established for the citizens of Israel for a prolonged period," he said on a visit to the army's southern command.

Also Monday, in what appeared to be backlash against Israel’s offensive against Gaza, a Palestinian man killed an Israeli and overturned a bus with a construction vehicle and a gunman wounded a soldier. Both attacks occurred in Jerusalem.

The Israeli operation in Gaza began on July 8 with an air campaign and expanded into a ground operation on July 17 with the aim of destroying a network of tunnels used for cross-border attacks.

By the weekend, Netanyahu said troops would finish with the tunnels before moving into a new phase, although officials have not said what that would involve.

The Israeli army confirmed it had begun pulling out some troops from Gaza over the past weekend.

I don’t understand why the Israelis have not mined the entire Gaza Strip border with seismic sensors to detect tunnel digging ops by the arabs.

Notice how every dead Palestinian on there is a ‘civilian’ or women and children, yet there are no numbers disclosing how many terrorists were killed. Typical propaganda posters. Still not enough deaths though. Hamas needs to be pushed into the sea with hungry white sharks waiting for them.

Photobucket will probably delete this pic by the end of the day. They've done that already.

Really, I don’t see what’s objectionable about the image.

Hamas is designated a TERRORIST organization by the USA.

The message would be similar to “KEEP CALM AND DESTROY THE NAZIS”.

Israel probably is taking the time to re-align its military. Then on to the next phase.

Trench of water or fire.

Full on Iron Dome.

Destroy Hamas and regain Gaza.

Hamas rounds up civilians by gunpoint and orders them to take shelter in buildings with missile batteries on the roof. Fires the rockets, then disperses before the inevitable Israeli retaliation. It’s a PR two-fer for them. Any liberal that doesn’t acknowlage this reprehensible tactic can’t be reasoned with on any level.

First off, I don’t believe that Israel missed any tunnels. They are so technologically advanced and have an intel agency second to none, if anything they acted ignorant as to see who emerges from the tunnels.

That was the fastest 72 hours I ever spent. It started exactly at 8 am this morning. At 7:58, we had an air alert siren in Efrat, so exactly is very exact. Now it’s already over. Oh, well.

Well, it looks like Hamas will be in Gaza the next time Israel is under threat to pile on. It looks like Hamas will remain there, to control education and media, and indoctrinate the next generation. It looks like Hamas will remain there to silence any potential voice of moderation or reconciliation.

What a strategic opportunity that seems to be slipping away.

Hamas must be destroyed, or there can never be safety for Israel. Timid half measures can only go until Hamas eventually gets a weapon that works. They only need to win once, because they are willing to make it final. They have the will to win.
