Meanwhile, In Israel

Things are taking a turn for the worse.

The paleoswinians have escalated their terror missile attacks to include Tel Aviv and Jerusalem (so far with little effect) while continuing to bombard southern Israel with hundreds of missiles on a daily basis.

The IDF, meanwhile, have struck back in well-directed attacks on terrorists, weapons dumps and command infrastructure. Casualties among civilians in Gaza have been as low as can be expected in an area where pisslamic culture and doctrine encourages using women and children as human shields.

As a response to the recent attacks on Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, the question as to whether the IDF will launch a ground offensive into Gaza becomes less and less of one. Already some 16,000 reservists have been called up, armored fighting vehicles are gathering outside Gaza and the green light has been given for another 60,000 reservists to be called up if necessary.

The most shocking development so far, however, has been reports that White House representatives have allegedly been uttering comments along the lines of Israel having a right to defend herself.

Undoubtedly, those reports will later be denied and airbrushed away by the Ogabe misadministration as they find it necessary.

    The most shocking development so far, however, has been reports that White House representatives have allegedly been uttering comments along the lines of Israel having a right to defend herself.

    very cleverly worded by the ministry of propaganda in the white house. As long as Israel strikes weapons caches and missile launch sites they are OK, once they go into Gaza or the Sinai, then the Uhhhhhbama administration can condemn the act as one of aggression rather than defense….

    Yes, I too was shocked to see a representative from the State Dept. repeating that Israel has the right to defend itself.

    The IDF has hit more than 1,000 targets since it began, with only 15 casualties. Despite what you see on TV. And those were not innocent civilians, they were terrorists. These strikes are pinpointed. They destroyed the Prime Minister (! of what?) compound without him in it.

    I hope Netanyahu pounds them into the ground. I hope he doesn’t make the same mistake Olmert made in Lebanon in 2006. I was there then, and I remember that the Israelis had just started winning when he agreed to a ceasefire. But Netanyahu is more of a military man than Olmert, that spineless, corrupt politician.

    I’m wondering whether Egypt wants this to go on. Because they certainly have no love for Gaza. Remember, a few months ago terrorists killed 15 Egyptian soldiers in the Sinai? Maybe Egypt will let Israel do their dirty work for them. They could have taken Gaza into their country, but they never did. They kept them in refugee camps. No one wants Gaza.

    The rockets, or some of them, that were fired into Israel are IRANIAN-MADE. A few weeks ago, a convoy carrying weapons in the Sudan was attacked and destroyed. Israel, of course, has no comment. Perhaps Morsi is afraid of a similar attack. I do wish the Israelis would kill Haniyeh, though.

    And I’m sure Ogabe is smuggling arms to the Syrian rebels who are actually Al Qeda. But he washed his hands, got on Air Force One and flew away.

    I think we’re are seeing the opening phase of the final arab/Israeli war. Thanks to Obama, the rational players in the middle east are gone and now you have the nutcases running the asylums.

    I think Israel will be attacked and in danger of being overrun, unleash their nuclear forces. Or Israel is overrun and unleashes their nuclear forces and uses the “Samson Option

    If Israel does go under, count on the surviving Israeli agents going after those they see as allowing it to happen.

    I see this as Iran testing Israel’s resolve by goading their proxies to do the dirty work. I think the Proxies will find out that they are going to get hurt bad and that in the end, Iran will not dare to intervene directly.

    So this has two possible scenarios

    Israel flattens Hamas and Hezbolla in Gaza and Lebanon, with a few well placed raids on Syria to get their attention and maybe some pounding of the rocket launch sites in Egypt, or worst case, they will reach their limits of tolerance and go after Iran once the borders are pacified enough. Either way we are in for a month of war at the very least.

    What is funny is that Turkey is trying to involve NATO over Syria’s war spilling into Turkey so under normal circumstances Israel and Turkey would be allied against Syria, only with Turkey going over to the Brotherhood, they are now in a box, can’t cooperate with Israel and won’t get any help from NATO. Could not happen to a nicer bunch.

    I can always count on my friend to get it right.

    Eretz Israel is showing extreme restraint. I too am heartened by the administration acknowledging they have a right to protect themselves. Once they’ve had it, and I think it’s going to be soon, they will destroy Hamas and the rest of the world including their putative Muslim brothers will shed no tears. I think they’re the black sheep of the movement as it were, they force things too quickly and the hard-cores have a different timescale, knowing now is not the time. They’re waiting for Iran to finish it’s designs, then making a ‘deal’ to consolidate the Muslim world. Just an off the top of my head idea.

    Get ready to see a biblical ass-kicking on the strip. I don’t think this is the start of the ‘big show’. I could be wrong, but I don’t think it is really.

    Bloggers Spot More Dead Child Fakery by Hamas; CNN Fooled

    Hamas has once again apparently been caught faking an image of a dead Palestinian child–this time using a child likely killed by its own rocket fire and claiming that an Israeli attack was responsible. CNN’s Sara Sidner ran a full report on the child’s death, strongly implying that an Israeli bomb had been responsible.

    The dead child was paraded before the cameras during the visit of Egyptian prime minister Hisham Kandil, who kissed the dead child in the presence of Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh. But even the New York Times was suspicious.

    Bloggers such as Elder of Ziyon quickly pieced together the evidence of Hamas fakery:

    The IDF did not launch any airstrikes in Gaza while Egyptian PM Kandil was in Gaza…

    If it was an Israeli missile, you can be sure that it would have been shown to the media! Furthermore, PCHR, which is keeping track of everyone killed in Gaza (and which admits that most of the dead have been “militants,”) did not list Mahmoud Sadallah or Aiman Aby Wardah in their list of victims of Israeli airstrikes, although they even include one person who died of a heart attack.

    Put this together with the fact that Hamas and other terror groups were firing rockets throughout Friday morning while the IDF did not, plus the fact that over 100 rockets have fallen short in Gaza (both using past performance and IDF statistics as proof), and the fact that the shrapnel in the video matches almost exactly the shrapnel damage we have seen from rocket fire into Israel, and it is very clear: this child was killed by Gaza rocket fire, not by Israel.

    Hamas has a well-established pattern of faking civilian deaths in Gaza, even as it seeks civilian deaths in Israel (and fakes that, too, pretending it is firing at military targets). Last week, Breitbart News caught Hamas using a month-old photo of a dead Syrian boy and claiming he had been killed by Israel–a double irony, since the Assad regime that killed the boy hosted Hamas for years before the outbreak of the Syrian civil war.

    The international community has reinforced Hamas’s pattern of fakery by applying a double standard to Palestinian civilians killed by Israel and Palestinian civilians killed by Hamas. When Israeli artillery inadvertently killed civilians in Beit Hanoun in 2006, the world sprang into action with accusations of “war crime”; when errant Palestinian rockets have struck civilians in Beit Hanoun, the world has said nothing at all.

    Not every civilian death in Gaza is faked, of course. But almost every civilian death can be attributed to Hamas, which deliberately fires rockets from civilian areas and hides its weapons caches in mosques and homes. Since Operation Cast Lead in 2008-9, Hamas has smuggled in more rockets that endanger the local Palestinian populace, and whose only purpose is to target Israeli civilians. Hamas bears the moral burden of this war.

    Obama Allies Accuse Israel of ‘Slaughter’

    BY: Washington Free Beacon Staff
    November 16, 2012 2:40 pm

    Two Muslim advocacy groups closely allied with the Obama administration are aggressively attacking Israel and defending the terror group Hamas as it continues to fire rockets at Israeli civilians.

    The Obama-aligned American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) issued a statement condemning “the continuing Israeli aggression and indiscriminate slaughter of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.”

    The statement omits all mention of terrorism and continued rocket assaults on Israeli citizens that have already claimed the lives of three people. It omits any mention of the week of Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel that preceded the Israeli retaliation. More than 500 rockets have been fired at Israel since Saturday.

    “ADC calls on the Obama Administration to stop supporting the continued Israeli aggression, and take measures to stop Israel’s continued violations of international and human rights laws,” the statement continues, without citing specific violations.

    The ADC urges supporters to deluge the White House with phone calls to demand “immediate pressure on Israel to end its violent aggression,” as well as that “Israel immediately lift its illegal blockade and siege of Gaza.”

    The ADC’s unsubstantiated accusations against Israel come just months after President Obama recorded a special video message lauding the group’s work. Obama also dispatched several high-level representatives of his administration to attend the group’s conference, including Ben Rhodes, Obama’s deputy national security adviser.

    “You’ve stood against discrimination in all of its forms and you help build a better America for all of us,” he told the ADC conference in July, neglecting to criticize the many ADC members who seek the end of the Jewish State.

    The ADC has additionally led a campaign accusing American Jews of manipulating U.S. foreign policy on behalf of Israel.

    Meanwhile, another controversial Muslim group courted by the Obama administration articulated its own sharp criticism of Israel. An official of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) called for Palestinian violence against Israelis.

    “Palestine is a land occupied by foreign settlers,” CAIR official Cyrus McGoldrick asserted Thursday on Twitter. “They have the right to resist, to defend themselves, ‘by any means necessary.’”

    Palestine is a land occupied by foreign settlers. They have the right to resist, to defend themselves, “by any means necessary.”

    — Cyrus McGoldrick (@CyrusMcGoldrick) November 15, 2012

    An FBI officer once designated CAIR a “front for Hamas.” Its officials have been welcomed to the White House by the Obama administration on at least 20 occasions, according to the Investigative Project on Terrorism.

    Terrapod @ #4:
    Since the Gazans are Sunnah, I don’t think the Shiite Iranians would balk at expending a few thousand, or million, or even all of them to attrit the Jews down to size.

    And that leads to another thought. The Palis are always talking about driving the Jews into the sea, but that is a street which runs both ways. Looking at the map, it appears that it would actually shorten Israel’s defensive preimeter if Gaza were to be permanently reoccupied and incorporated into Israel. Presuming the occupying Gazans were no longer there. Here’s where that pushing a people into the sea idea becomes interesting. What to do with them? Maybe those Gazans who care not for treading sea water, can go to Iran. It might be an educational experience for everyone.

    Just think of all Israel is losing in tourism, which I am sure accounts for much of their income.

    I personally took a trip to Israel after my first year of employment and it has been and will always be the highlight of my life. The Bible came alive and the respect I gained for the Jewish people, of course, knowing Jesus was a Jew, and that was His homeland.

    God bless the Jewish people and I pray for their survival and even rebounding again and again, thanks to their faith and values, which we, in the US, could use/emulate!

    The family values I witnessed there would put US to shame. They spent time together and appreciated each other, knowing God´s blessings and His promise to bless Israel and also, to all who blessed Israel, He would bless and those who cursed Israel, He would curse.

    Time to stop and consider that it is God Himself who is cursing those who come against Israel, yet they continue to think they can challege Almighty God and win. Not too smart!

    Pray for Israel and receive God´s continual blessings now in this life and God´s promise of eternal life to all who accept/receive Jesus as their Messiah/Lord/Savior.

    Hamas has already violated the cease-fire negotiated by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood government. According to sources within Israel, air raid sirens sounded in the city of Beer Sheva as the cease-fire went into effect at 9 p.m. local time, and rocket attacks were reported elsewhere across the south.

    In addition, as reported by Israeli blogger Jameel at “The Muqata,” a new poll released by Israel’s Channel 2 indicates that 70% of Israelis oppose a cease-fire, and only 24% support one. (The poll was conducted before today’s announcement of a cease-fire agreement.) 64% of Israelis believe a cease-fire will not last. A smaller majority, 58%, believes that Operation Pillar of Defense strengthened Israel’s deterrent; 15% say it is weaker.

    The cease-fire agreement came as Israel scored hit after hit on Hamas terror infrastructure, including Iranian-made long-range rockets–but also shortly after a terror attack on a bus in Tel Aviv for which Hamas claimed responsibility. The timing may allow Hamas to claim a political and strategic victory, especially as its rockets reached the outskirts of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem for the first time during the week-long conflict.

    Pressure from the United States undoubtedly played a role, as the Obama administration was reluctant to see Israel launch a ground war in Gaza, and Clinton may have threatened to close the purse strings of aid to Egypt.

    Other polls showed that Israelis, who supported the aerial assault on Gaza, were far more reluctant to back a ground campaign that could take weeks and involve casualties to Israeli soldiers, including reservists. Yet the Israeli public seems convinced that Hamas has not been sufficiently crippled and that more needed to be done.
