Military Chief of Hamas Slain in Wide Israeli Attack on Gaza

GAZA — Israel on Wednesday launched one of the most ferocious assaults on Gaza since its invasion four years ago, hitting at least 20 targets in aerial attacks that killed the top military commander of Hamas, drew strong condemnation from Egypt and escalated the risks of a new war in the Middle East.

The Israelis coupled the intensity of the airstrikes with the threat of another ground invasion and warnings to all Hamas leaders in Gaza to stay out of sight or risk the same fate as the Hamas military commander, Ahmed al-Jabari, who was killed in a pinpoint airstrike as he was traveling by car down a Gaza street. “We recommend that no Hamas operatives, whether low level or senior leaders, show their faces above ground in the days ahead,” the Israel Defense Forces said in a Twitter message.

The ferocity of the airstrikes, which Israel called Operation “Pillar of Defense” in response to repeated rocket attacks by Gaza-based Palestinian militants, provoked rage in Gaza, where Hamas said the airstrikes amounted to war and promised a harsh response. Civil-defense authorities in Israel raised alert levels and told residents to take precautions for rocket retaliation from Gaza.

Health officials in Gaza quoted by news agencies said the Israeli attacks had killed at least nine people and wounded at least 40.

Do you know what’s wrong with this story? There are only nine of these scum-bag Hamas bastards dead and only 40 wounded.

I have to hand it to Israel; they have shown great restraint in holding off on these acts of retaliation, that is quite admirable. I am pretty much convinced that the reason the Israelis have been so patient is because they were watching the American elections and were hoping for a different result.

I believe they were hoping against hope that the American people would exhibit a greater degree of common sense and elect a President that would be a friend to Israel as opposed to being a supporter of Islam.

The abrupt escalation in hostilities between Israel and Hamas, the militant organization regarded by Israel as a terrorist group sworn to Israel’s destruction, came amid rising tensions between Israel and all of its Arab neighbors. Israel has faced growing lawlessness on its border with the Sinai, including cross-border attacks. It recently fired twice into Syria, which is caught in a civil war, after munitions fell in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, and it has absorbed rocket fire from Gaza, which has damaged homes and frightened the population.

Israel is our ONLY friend in the region, it is that simple. America can’t turn its back on the Israelis. They NEED us and we need them, but I fear that Barack Hussein Obama is going to try to exert his will upon the Israelis, and if he fails to get his way I fear he will simply abandon Israel and allow the Israelis to defend themselves against ALL enemies in the region, and do so alone.

Israel merely wants to exist peacefully and be left alone but what they get is total rage, death threats and utter hatred from the Muslims

Isaiah 60:12: ‘For the nation that will not serve you will perish; it will be utterly ruined.

Personally, I will stand with Israel.

  1. No doubt about it Fred, BO & I do mean BO will abandon Israel and stand with radical Islam. BO has proven as much my inviting the new president of Egypt who so happens belongs to the Muslim Brotherhood, yes the terrorist organization.

    Still BO spits in the face of Israel, BO has yet to visit Israel. Why is that? We all know why, yet for whatever the reason people still kiss this MF’S ass. It is utterly amazing. Can’t wait to hear what General Petreous has to say when he testifys in front of Congress. Is BO hearing voices……… IMPEACHMENT ….IMPEACHMENT . IMPEACHMENT..

      Obama can NOT be impeached, not successfully… The House draws articles of impeachment, no problem, we have a GOP House..

      The Senate prosecutes the articles, we have a Dem Senate… Ain’t gonna happen…

    Testing site actions. (I’ll have to comment on this post later)

    Kiss Israel goodbye if anti-Semite Susan Rice is named secretary of state. The presser was unbelievable. He is just getting started.

    • Katie says:

      Don’t rule out Israel even under a Sec of State named Rice. Rice wants to invade Israel. Let Obama try that and find out what a real army can do. How many American dead are they willing to have in a few hours. 5,000? 10,000? They will think Iraq and Afghanistan were school picnics. And how will the American people react while they watch (on live TV) their fighting men being killed and wounded?

      Remember this:

      In 1948 the newly created State of Israel had an arms embargo placed upon them by the US and Great Britain. They were up against 5 of the best trained, best equipped armies in the region. Heck the Trans-Jordan Arab Legion had American Arms, Arab soldiers and British Officers.

      Israel had 10,000 rifles, 2 million rounds of Ammo, 4 Tommy Guns, 4 anti-aircraft guns, a couple of Brinks trucks with guns out the slots, and a dozen homemade Mortars. No air force, no tanks, no Navy. And yet Israel won.

      Israel is protected by a higher power than Susan Rice or Barack Obama.

      • Bunkerville says:

        Excellentnpoint, but can they take on a war from all sides without us. Setting aside Rice and her anti-Israel position.

        • NativeSon says:

          Yep, they can in the Bible it is referrred to as the “Battle of Megiddo (Armageddon)” and the US is not a part of it….And, ISRAEL (God) WINS!!!!

    It seems obvious that the OBozo and his minions don’t understand that Israel will never allow itself to be pushed into the sea and will not hesitate to use whatever weapons they have in their arsenal to prevent it….including the “A”-word. Or maybe they do understand… I believe he would like nothing more than to see a nuclear conflict that could quite easily escalate into a WWIII scenario and give him an excuse to declare himself dictator..Could be that is why he’s not doing anything to stop the little beady-eyed prick from Iran from his bomb making activities.

    Israel can handle anything that comes up in the Middle East but we’re not going to like the results. In the 1973 war, when things weren’t going well for Israel, I read where they were ready to go nuclear but the Russians and the US stepped in. During that time, the Arab nations were pawns of the Soviets so were they were able to put the breaks on things from their end. We had Israel’s back solidly at that time so they knew when we told them to “cool it”, that we would be there in the thick of things with them if necessary. Today, I don’t believe we have Israel’s back and they know it. If Israel went nuclear, we would not want that result. Today’s nukes are a lot different than Hiroshima and the fallout that would spread around the globe could be devastating.
