An Israel Defense Forces tank and aircraft carried out strikes on two Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip on Thursday evening in retaliation for Palestinian rocket attacks.

The strikes came as a terrorist group in the Strip launched a rocket that hit an open field in the south of the country, after two previous attacks that failed to reach Israeli territory, the army said.

This was going to happen sometime.

Israel might just as well face it now as later.

Secondary explosions in a jihadist camp are a good thing.

Since neither of the two celebrate Christmas the closest thing to their “Holiday” would be Hanukah where the PA’s don’t celebrate anyway.

I think that Trump has changed the culture enough so that a vocal majority of Americans (and others) will understand the simple statements "Enough of this crap. We want to live in peace. Behave or get out."

If the MSM continues to blame Israel for responding to attacks, they will continue to loose credibility. I'm hoping we don't fall for the selective heartbreaking pictures only telling the approved narrative yet again.

Of course I could be wrong. Perhaps again, the MSM will show collateral damage and condemn Israel, while ignoring the real cause of the violence.

The story is "Missile attackers put civilians at risk on both side." The story is not "Israel purposely kills civilians while responding to peaceful protesters."

Liberals are complaining about President Trump's moving the embassy, endangering the "peace" talks, because we're going to have a two-state solution of "Palestinian" arabs and Israeli Jews living peaceably side by side while sharing Jerusalem as capitol of both states.

The muslim savages have been lobbing stones, missiles and bombs at Jews for decades! There will be no peace, due to the muslim culture of harassing innocents. Leave the Jews alone! Stop the killing of Jews in Israel. Only then will "Palestinian" arabs be taken seriously about wanting peace. They are savage wolves at the borders intent on mayhem and death. If they want peace, move them back to Jordan because that is their homeland.

Some of the worst haters of Israel are Jews themselves. Sounds ironic, but these are the non-religious, i.e. by heritage but not belief, liberal Jews. They embrace socialism but won’t admit that Hitler was a socialist. There would be no Jews alive today if they were the only ones.

Probably not.

A Credible Peace Plan, at Last
Jerusalem Post ^ | December 4, 2017 | Caroline B. Glick
"...Saudi peace plan. Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman reportedly presented it to PLO chief and Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas last month...While the Palestinians would not receive sovereignty over Jerusalem, they would be able to establish their capital in the Jerusalem suburb of Abu Dis."
