Top Hamas figure killed in Israeli airstrike (IDF says, "Happy New Year, Hamas!")
MSNBC ^ | 1 Jan 09 | N/A

Posted on 01/01/2009 8:48:58 AM PST by elhombrelibre

Israel assassinated a Hamas strongman Thursday in its first assault on the top leadership of Gaza's rulers, escalating a crushing aerial offensive even as it declared it was ready to launch a ground invasion.

The airstrike targeted the eight-story apartment building in the Jebaliya refugee camp that was home to Nizar Rayan, 52, ranked among Hamas' top five decision-makers in Gaza. The attack killed 12 other people including two of Rayan's four wives and four of his 12 children, Palestinian health officials said. The Muslim faith allows men to have up to four wives.

While escalating its 6-day-old military offensive against Hamas in Gaza, Israel also appeared to be sounding out a possible diplomatic exit from its campaign by demanding international monitors as a key term of any future truce.

Israel should declare Gaza to be a sovereign country and should immediately cease the delivery of ALL goods to that sovereign country until all hostilities (i.e. rocket firings, etc. cease and desist). Let their Muslim “brothers” take care of them. It makes absolutely no sense to be conducting air strikes while shipping petroleum, food, medicine, etc. to their adversaries each and every day.

Afterward, a full artillery barrage should follow every rocket attack. Flame throwers should be deployed along the border as well.

Gaza residents have about as much influence/control over their “government” as a resident of Taliban controlled Pakistan/Afghanistan.

As in zero. So why give the propaganda advantage. Right now the IDF is using smart guided munitions of various kinds to great affect.

And Hamas has not even shown any indication of wanting a ceasefire. So let the IDF do what they need to do as they deem necessary. They are applying the US precision capability very well.

They need to take out the heart of Hamas and those fundamentalists don’t exactly view this level of death as problematic. When they do, you will hear the crying secondhand in the press.

But even then, the IDF should not slow their impact until they certify satisfaction with the operation. Otherwise, the situation will be repeated in less than a year.

One also has to consider what is an effective disruption of the Iranian plans. And right now those plans are being disrupted. Best to let it continue.

And this just in, Hamas has been assassinating Israeli school children and other civilians for years and the world couldn’t care less. Hypocritical bastards!

"International monitors?" Oh wait - you mean the same EU monitors that fled when Hamas took over Gaza? If this is what Israel is fighting for, I'd rather have the war called off now, if its not serious about winning. Gaza is not worth the life of a single Israeli soldier if Israel has no intention of returning there to stay for good!

Nizar Rayyan's death was a righteous deed. Israel needs to eliminate the Hamas leadership and make them understand they are not safe anywhere!

Maybe it's just a way to smoke out the moral grand standers by pointing out the obvious. That is, that their critics in Europe will gladly engage in tawdry moral exhibitionism, but put their soldiers on the line is politically impossible. If you don't think the Israelis should lose a life to in Gaza in a war that isn't worth winning just to have EU monitors, would the Germans, Italians, French, or any others in Europe take the risk of losing young citizens against the Iranian-sponsored suicide bombing maniacs? Besides, Hamas would never agree to this idea. But I do think the current regime in Israel is scared they'll lose the election if they wimp out.

Frankly, I am disappointed. Where was the followup strike? There are still 2 “wives” and 8 evil spawn left crawling around?

Since when does killing terrorists or enemy military units of any name assassination? Where are the headlines announcing the assassination of Israeli citizens?

According to Merriam-Webster's online dictionary.

Assassinate:

1: To injure or destroy unexpectedly and treacherously

2: To murder (a usually prominent person) by sudden or secret attack often for political reasons

< sarc > This poor man was murdered for political reasons. Since the Israeli victims of the rocket attacks are not prominent people, they are not being assassinated. < /sarc >

What a great day for Rayan! He not only gets his 72 virgins for being martyred for 'allah', he can meet up with Sheikh Ahmed Yassin and ask him why he let his parking permit expire a few years ago:

There goes the MSM again...it wasn’t an “assassination;” it was a successful military strike against a legitimate target. By using the word “assassinated,” MSNBC is trying to make Israel’s action appear immoral and out of the bounds of the rules of warfare.

These terrorist, like any terrorists, THINK they know, that if Israel or the US, or any other western nation they are trying to kill, realizes there are human shields present, we will recognize them as innocent victims and therefore we will not bomb that place. That is why they are there. IOW, using our values and moral codes against us. (Hey wait, that's exactly what liberals do! and then call it hypocrisy. They have no values or morals, so it isn't hypocrrisy for them.)

And in most instances the west does indeed do everything possible to minimize the threat to civilians. But once a person uses themselves as a human shield, they are no longer victims, but the enemy. In this case, unavoidable hazard of fighting terrorists.

Russia provides 10 MiG fighter jets to Lebanon for free
(Yuri Kadobnov/AFP/Getty Images)
Russian MIG-29 fighters

Russia gave Lebanon ten MiG fighter jets yesterday in a deal to boost defence cooperation.

The MiG29 Fulcrum fighters would be provided free to Lebanon under an agreement on military-technical assistance, the head of Russia’s defence cooperation service said. Mikhail Dmitryev said that the jets would come from Russia’s existing stock.

He said that Moscow was also in talks to supply Beirut with heavy armour, adding that supplies of such weaponry were “now possible after the situation in this nation has stabilised”.

He said: “We view the Lebanese army as the main guarantor of this nation’s stability, therefore the armed forces of this country must be strengthened.” The deal followed a meeting in Moscow between Anatoly Serdyukov, the Defence Minister, and Elias Murrhis, his Lebanese counterpart. Mr Serdyukov said that Russia had received a detailed list of armaments sought by Lebanon.

When details of the deal emerged on Tuesday it was suggested that the aircraft would be sold at a discount. Mr Dmitryev confirmed yesterday however that they would be free, with delivery paid by the Russian Defence Ministry. He said: “Military-technical assistance, this means assistance in budgetary funds.”

The MiG29s, one of Russia’s best fighter jets, will provide considerable additional firepower for the Lebanese air force, which currently has only five outdated Hawker Hunter jets and 16 helicopters.

The gift is certain to strengthen Russian influence in the Middle East as Moscow seeks to restore a position that was lost with the collapse of the Soviet Union.

The agreement is likely to prompt concern in Israel and the United States, given the continuing power and influence of the Islamic militant group Hezbollah in Lebanon. Ria-Novosti news agency reported that Lebanese officials were also seeking tanks, antitank rockets, air defence systems and helicopters.

Russia is already a major weapons supplier to neighbouring Syria, which is keen to acquire the latest MiG29s and was reported to be seeking the latest Sam S300 air defence missiles earlier this year.

Moscow denied that it would sell the systems to Syria.

The northern Syrian port of Tartus has also been identified as a possible base for the Russian navy to gain a permanent presence in the Mediterranean. Russian warships visited Cuba this week for the first time since the Cold War after taking part in their first war games with Venezuela.

Russia announced plans in September to sell antiaircraft systems to Iran despite American objections. It is already building a nuclear power plant for Iran that the West suspects is part of Tehran’s plans to acquire an atomic bomb.

The Kremlin is rearming Russia’s military too. Colonel-General Nikolai Solovtsov, head of the Strategic Missile Forces, told Russian news agencies yesterday that Russia would commission a new intercontinental ballistic missile, the RS24, next year with multiple warheads.

He said that Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces planned 13 practice launches in 2009, almost double the number this year. They would include five test launches of new missiles as part of plans to overhaul Russia’s Soviet-era nuclear arsenal by 2020 and counter American defence systems.

“By 2015-2020 the Russian strategic rocket forces will have new complete missile systems with improved combat characteristics,” General Solovtsov said. “They will be capable of carrying out any tasks, including in conditions where an enemy uses antimissile defence measures.”

Good riddance. Another dead terrorist.

That being said, I take this opportunity to continue my campaign to push the idea of buying these hapless, land hungry, Jew haters an Island of their own and put them on it. It really is the most humane solution, and the only solution that doesn't involve "dropping the bomb" and turning sandy Palestine into a massive glass sculpture, although I'm sure it would be rather quiet for many hundreds of years after that, and as the years pass with more and more innocent blood spilled the idea starts to grow on me a bit.

Rather than nuking them, why not help them have a nice little island, or small set of islands, somewhere balmy and quiet and outside rocket range of anything important to the world. They can develop ceremonies of doing a new Palestinian style hula dance and throwing the "ceremonial coconut" into the sea in the general direction of Israel once a year, kind of like throwing the rocks at the pillars that symbolize satan that they do in Mecca, and then they can get back to doing their little island business thing of making snappy little souvenirs and everybody is happy. (insert smirk here)

As a bonus, the Island(s) could be blockaded to allow ship searches for anything inbound or outbound for a few decades until the hate cools off and they learn to be happy little island people.

Just for the sake of discussion: "progressive" is "newspeak" (ala George Orwells "1984") for socialist. Sounds kind of snappy. Who doesn't want to be progressive? But nobody seems to like being called a liberal or socialist or communist. Best to forget rebuilding the reputation of "liberal" and just start off fresh with something new... "hey.... lets call ourselves progressive! Catchy, eh?"

This is kind of like referring to infanticide as "Pro-Choice".

The liberal/socialists are being smart and savvy, and thats just scary as hell. Propaganda works. We just lost an election to massive propaganda. We have just elected a man that nobody knows. The few that do know him are largely busy with court cases, or making excuses for a radical past.

One thing we absolutely cannot do is to stop attacking Obama and his socialist friends and policies. They destroyed Bush... "death by a thousand cuts." They attacked him every day.

We need to fight back. We need to educate people on what has just happened and what to expect. One thing about this Blago thing... it drives home the point that was made during the campaign... Obama and his associates are corrupt beyond belief. That being said, Obama may yet be the best thing to happen to us, just like Clinton who left a "legacy" of a GOP controlled congress for the first time in 40 or more years. Obama may just be a windfall for conservatives, and I hope they will take full advantage of the opportunity the next time around and maintain control for decades. Its going to take some hard work to make that happen in an environment where people like to vote for "change" even if they don't know what the heck "change" means.
