An Israeli airstrike has just killed Palestinian military chief Ahmed Said Khalil al-Jabari.
He was head of the military branch of Hamas, the the Islamist group governing the Gaza strip.
Western reporters fear the strike coule lead to war between Hamas and Israel. Thousands of outraged protestors have gathered outside the Gaza hospital where Jabari's body was taken. The Hamas military wing has released a furious response, saying that Israel's attack has "opened the gates of hell on itself."
The airstrike part of a wider operation against militants in Gaza, launched in response to over 110 rockets fired on Israel from the Palestinian territory since Saturday.
Yessir!!! I couldn't agree more. It's way over time for the United States to get out of that region of the world and take our money with us. Part of the reason we're on the brink of financial disaster is because of all the tax dollars being handed over to the Middle East. When are we going to say enough is enough?
People gripe and complain about AMERICANS getting food assistance, but don't say one word about the billions of dollars given away in foreign and military aid. If Israel and Palestine and Iran and Iraq and all those nitwits want to blow each other to kingdom come, I don't care. It's time the US stop using OUR money to keep these fools at each other's throats. They will NEVER live peacefully together, so let's get out and let them duke it out and may the best one win. Let's use OUR money to care of America and Americans.
How would you suggest the Israeli's react when over the last ten days Hamas has fired over 100 rockets into Israeli territory. Netanyahu said on Monday if it doesn't stop there will be repraisals (he's got an election in Jan.) Monday night Hamas' reply was ten rocket fired at the town where he spoke. The Israeli's play hardball, you shoot at meet kiss your tail goodbye!
Since Barry is backing the Muslims instead of Israel in the region, I guess the Israelis have to defend themselves any way possible. I don't blame them at all for doing what they have to. They are surrounded by antiisraeli hate groups, and their existence is threatened and attacked everyday. Just because Barry's foreign policy,(love the Muslim terrorists) isn't working doesn't mean Israel has to just sit by and be exterminated. He has shown who his loyalty is behind. Israel needs to and will protect themselves. If the terrorists would leave people alone, there wouldn't be any problems. How often is it reported that Israel is attacking others for no reason like the terrorists do to them?
yes obama loves him some terrorism, thats why he has predator drones dropping missiles on their door step every couple of days or sending special forces to chase them across northern africa, or training the militaries of nations in that region.
During the busiest time of day, 110 rockets fired, one person treated for injuries and 5 for stress. Yawn!! not very convincing. People are painting targets in Gaza, I guarantee Mr. Netanyahu's escalation was a deliberate plot to reach the end that was reached.
If hamas wants this to stop all they need to do is recognize Israel's right to exist and stop shooting rockets into their cities every day. If you were throwing rocks at someones house, and every time you landed one they came to your house and punched you right in the teeth, then at some point you would stop throwing rocks at that guys house.(or be a bloody heap on the ground) It's the same thing with Hamas, you get smacked like this every single time you attack israel, WHY KEEP DOING IT?
"WHY KEEP DOING IT?" What sickens me is Hamas is just the point of the spear fighting by proxy the war against Israel for other Muslim countries. They will keep doing as long as their masters outside the area give up.
@MRMacrum true story, Hamas indoctrinates people at a very young age, they fund youth sports, housing assistance, food pantries, all sorts of charitable things. This means they have people loyal enough to put rockets in their businesses and homes, and to be human shields for them. And like you said MRMacrum, they are Iran's proxy in a constant conflict with israel a very sad cycle with no end in sight im afraid......as for people moving in my backyard, i would go TALK with them before i did anything, and i wouldnt say they had no right to live.
Then why on Monday speaking in Southern Israeli town dis Netanyahu say if the rockets don't stop we will take reprisals. Hamas replied by firing rockets that night into the town. Play with fire you get burned
@MRMacrum . Why did they fire rockets? More than likely due to Isra'el opening a gate to permit settling. Tit for Tat doesn't begin to describe what is going on in this former British controlled state, 1947. The Brits were just tired of Jews being in Europe and made them a middle eastern problem; where it all started.
@martydotcom Play with fire, get burned? Britain started the fire but look at the state of their own country, now. Obviously, they're not the best decision makers. Look at how many lives were lost in Europe, over the past 1000 years due to Judaism and especially, judeo-christianity( Judaism multiplied by greek mythology)
@EL_Guapo Wow deep thoughts....read my lips Hamas stared the fire by shooting rockets into Israeli territory.. What obtuse thought process relates to UK Judeo Greek mythology Have you been hitting the Koolaid ?
Hamas and the rest of the terrorist organizations act like animals, then are shocked when people treat them as such. If I were the PM of Israel, I wouldn't have shown nearly this much restraint. Good job Israel, keep on defending yourself.
In fact, the leader of the Hamas Mozlem Brother terrorists in Gaza who has much blood on his hands is only the first target. Israel has no other choice but to defend the lives of innocent Jewish children and women that became the main easy target of the Hamas terrorists in daily barrage of new smuggled missiles from Egypt that were targeting on Israeli cities. Israel was left alone to fight the Egyptian-Hamas-al Qaida axis of evil in Southern Israel and the Iranian-Syrian Hezbollah axis of evil in Northern Israel after the re-election of the Mozlem Brother hero Obama. The killing of Hamas military leader is justified after the all out attack by Hamas and al Qaida from Gaza on more than million Israeli children women and men in Israeli large cities including Beer Sheva, Ashkelon, Ashdod and more. Obama’s re-election as the Mozlem Brother ‘Messiah’ proved to be more dangerous to Israel that ever before as Obama is pulling US Military from the entire Middle East, Asia and Africa and leaving the Mozlem brother terrorists under Iran with Russian support to fight Isolated Israel. Did Obama re-election signal the Jihadists to resume their Jihad war against Israel? Obviously the Mozlem Brother scholar Obama proved his love to the Jihad culture of hatred to Israel and the Jewish people as his re-election means emboldening of the Mozlem Brother terrorists that believe that Obama is on their side against Israel. Obama was able to add the Egyptian regime to become Mozlem Brother Jihadist regime to the long list of enemies that surround Israel. The Egyptians vowed to support Hamas and al Qaida terrorists as their new ‘patron’ regime and threatening Israel not to retaliate against the Hamas terrorists if attacked by them. Nevertheless, Israel will not surrender to the new Middle East that Obama created with his Arab Spring Mozlem brother revolution. Israel must fight back because nobody else will and Israel will defeat its Jihadist enemies regardless of Obama’s support of the Jihadist Mozlem Brotherhood that seek the demise of Israel.
You said a lot but it's simply not true. Grover Norquist, a republican party supporter is tied in with The Muslim Brotherhood, not Obama. It's the reason he seeks to reduce the size of Isra'el's America. Furthermore, Isra'el can't allow Palestine to be recognized as many members will be tried for war crimes, that's all this crap is about. Obama loosely controls a country which represents 4% of the entire world population.
Perhaps you feel bigger than what you are due to the amount of violence your country displays, in order to keep others off of your asses. America is an 80 pound boy in a men's penal facility called the world that can't eat; because his hands are busy trying to keep penis out of his butt. The only downfall is the boy's (america) father (Whites) are already molesting him in the comfort of his own home.
It needs to be left alone America has enough to worry about they are all gonna fight and kill innocent people an we cant stop them once the Goverment realizes that maybe they will focus more on America and the hungry and homeless here. It seems it is allways about Territory and beleifs they all need to just get alone and stop all the hatred , or better yet let them kill each other and once they all have done that maybe the few left will get alone.
