Posted on 11/13/2012 1:29:32 PM PST by Pete
Islamic militants fired more than 110 rockets and mortars into Israeli territory over the past four days in attacks that injured eight Israelis, according to a report issued by the Israeli Defense Forces Strategic Division.
The unprovoked attacks have been dispersed throughout the Jewish states southern territory and have forced more than a million civilians into bomb shelters. One soldier has been critically injured in the barrage.
The Israel Project says that 898 rockets have fallen on Israel thus far in 2012over 200 more than hit Israel in the entirety of 2011.
The Obama administration has yet to issue a statement about the attacks. Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro recently expressed sympathy via Twitter to those affected by the near-constant assault.
The most recent barrage comes on the heels of a three-month calm between Israel and Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.
Foreign policy observers fear that the renewed violence may spark a regional war that could spill into volatile neighboring countries such as Egypt and Syria.
Gazas ruling terrorist organization Hamas is attempting to change the existing rules of conflict by attacking IDF [Israel Defense Forces] military targets, even within Israeli territory the IDF noted in its report, a copy of which was obtained by the Free Beacon.
Hamas is attempting to change the military rules of engagement by targeting Israeli territory, the military report notes. Hamas, as the ruling authority in the Gaza Strip, is responsible.
A tunnel consisting of explosives was detonated on Nov. 8 near an intersection while an IDF force was present, according to the IDFs report. The attack injured one soldier.
The attacks have occurred along Israels northern border with Syria and elsewhere throughout the country.
Syria has been locked in its own civil war for months. Rebel forces are attempting to topple the regime of President Bashar al-Assad, who has retaliated by ordering the systematic murder of his own citizens.
Israeli tanks in response to the aggression shelled a Syrian artillery battery that fired on the Golan Heights. This is the first time since 1973 that Israel and Syria have engaged in active hostility, a sign that the Assad regimes instability is affecting the regions delicate balance of power.
Terrorists have fired mortars, Qassam rockets, and Grad rockets. Such weapons are either smuggled into Palestinian territories or built from household items, according to the IDFs report.
The continuous arm-building up in Gaza has been supported by Iran, the report states.
The Israeli Air Force has carried out 14 operations in response to the attacks, including two on Tuesday.
Living under routine rocket fire has been the unacceptable reality of approximately one million citizens, or 15 percent of the total Israeli population, the IDF report states. It is Israels right and obligation to its citizens to act in self-defense.
” Islamic militants fired more than 110 rockets and mortars into Israeli territory over the past four days..”
Wasting no time.
Bearded savages getting bolder cuz they know that the American president will not rush to help Israel.
Wasting no time.
They’re just celebrating Obama’s win.
Prayer neede for Israel.
I look forward to the day of mass Palestinian casualties.
This is going to blow up fast. Prayers are needed, as our country’s leader sides with Iran.
They are just celebrating another Obama term. This is just the beginning.
Thank you Barrack HUSEIN Mohammet Obama!

The head of the snake needs to be cut off and glazed. Yes a nice glazing would be nice, but Obama will not offend his brethren.
After all, all the mideast problems are due to the “sweetest sound in the morning”.... the call to shazam.
What a man.
Pray for Israel. Pray for the US.
” After all, all the mideast problems are due to the sweetest sound in the morning.... the call to shazam.”
Bibi is about to open a Supersize can of whoop-ass on their enemies. Read this thread and also some of the posts to get an idea of what is about to happen. The Arabs will shortly be eating each other alive and the Persians will again rule in Persia. The name Iran will be nothing more than an ugly afterthought and memory not to be forgotten.
I served in Iran from 72-74 and know the distinct difference between the two and a new age of Cyrus will soon be upon them but this time as a representative republic. The one thing they were promised if they supported the revolution to oust the Shah.
What percent of Jews voted for Obama?
“Thank you Barrack HUSEIN Mohammet Obama!”
I didn't know about his 2nd middle name. did he get that after swearing allegiance to allakabar and having relations with a goat?
And to act in self-defense -Israel will:
Israel Needs A Preemptive Nuclear Strike Against Iran
"...we will, if necessary, do whatever it takes to ensure our survival, including a preemptive nuclear strike."
