Israeli troops move to Gaza after rockets jolt Tel Aviv area
CBS News ^ | November 15, 2012

Posted on 11/15/2012 12:27:47 PM PST by Oldeconomybuyer

Palestinian militants barraged Israel with more than 200 rockets on Thursday, killing three people as Israel pressed a punishing campaign of airstrikes on militant targets across the Gaza Strip.

Late in the day, Israel signaled a ground operation may be imminent as forces moved toward the border area with Gaza. At least 12 trucks were seen transporting tanks and armored personnel carriers, and a number of buses carrying soldiers arrived. Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said he had authorized the army to call-up additional reservists for possible action. The army said it was prepared to draft up to 30,000 additional troops.

"I ordered the military today to widen the draft of reserve soldiers in order to be able to be ready for any development," Barak said. Military officials said the moves were to prepare for the possibility of a ground invasion, but stressed no decision had been made. Israel TV stations, however, said a ground offensive was expected Friday.

Somebody’s about to get driven into the sea here, and it ain’t the Jews.

Wow. So, they are actually mentioning that the Pallies are firing rockets now? About time.

Israel should grow even bigger after this.

In 20 years they should be begging them to ‘go back to the 2012 borders’

As a XPian that supports the sovereignty of all nations regardless of “national religious preferences”, I say...

Give ‘em hell Bibi! Maybe soon the cultural vernacular will show that “gaza” and “glass” are interchangeable.

If Morsi intervenes he’s signing the death warrant for the Egyptian military. The Israelis do have trouble dealing with insurgents and baby killers but when it comes to destroying the military of an opponent they will do so ruthlessly and utterly. No nation is in the position to aid Morsi. Syria is in chaos, Jordan will not move, Iran is much too far away. A great many Egyptian soldiers are going to die unledd the generals in Egypt get Morsi’s full attention.

It’s really pronounced Ahhhhhza (try thinking of the sound you make when you gargle in order to pronounce the ahhhh), not Gaza.

“About the same as the middle part of Lachiam; La-kkhhhhi’em?”

No, that’s easier to pronounce. :)

The ahh in Aza goes all the way down in the throat and even many Israelis don’t bother with it. They just say ah-za. But it is spelled with a G in English to simulate that deep throaty sound.

He's been in NYC today comforting the victims of Sandy, but "From The White House, President's schedule November 15, 2012:

4:35 pm "The President hosts cast and crew members of the film Lincoln for a screening at the White House"

Link

No time nor reason for him to consider the fate of Israel.

It’s just staggering how much things at home and abroad have really ramped up since the election. Its not surprising but I didnt think things would start spiraling out of control this fast.

No surprise. The terrorists are emboldened by the fact that the current occupant of the White House is no friend of Israel.

Prayers and donation away.

Many IDF soldiers are Jewish by birth but from other countries. This organization helps them pay for travel expenses etc if they choose to go fight for Isreal.

DONATE TO IDF

Hey U.N.!

Ready the Evacuation Boats! If you don’t it’s your own damned fault. There is a refugee problem about to happen on the Egyptian border. Egypt can take these malcontents or you can!
