IAF Targeting Gaza Terrorists After 100+ Rockets Fired Into Israel
Yeshiva World News ^ | Monday, July 7th, 2014

Posted on 07/07/2014 11:38:13 AM PDT by Dave346

21:14: The IAF is targeting terrorists in Gaza at this time. The aerial assaults are reported to be heavy. Sirens are sounding in Ashkelon and the Eshkol Regional Council.

20:33: At least 100 rockets fired in the last wave towards the W. Negev and many other areas including Beit Shemesh, Be’er Tuvia, Gadera, Netivot, the Lachish district, and Ashkelon. A number of fires have broken out as a result of the rockets hitting open areas.

100 rockets into Israel? You’d never guess from MSNBC, CBS, and CNN. All I hear about there is that one Palestinian was allegedly murdered by Jews (the first in a very long time).

If you watch an unbiased news source, it’s clear that the vast majority of Israelis support the rule of law, including prosecution of killers even if they are Jewish. If you watch an unbiased news source, it’s clear that the vast majority of Palestinians support violence against Jews. I support the civilized side of this ongoing war, and that is not the Palestinians.

Obama urges Israel to show restraint.

The only restraint Israel should show is not nuking them.

It doesn’t change the fact it’s an act requiring response, but thank goodness the weapons are so inaccurate.

The Israelis arrested 6 men and the court remanded them into custody (like an arraignment I think). They are facing charges including murder of a juvenile, murder with hate crime penalties, terrorism, membership in a terrorist organization, torture, and kidnapping among others. Israel is proceeding as you would expect any country would to punish violent criminals.

Meanwhile, everyone is still waiting for the PA to find the killers of those 3 dead Jewish boys. Or release any evidence about the killers. Or ask the people for help finding the killers. Did they even post a reward to help find the killers?

Most of them are inaccurate but there are quite a number of sophisticated rockets, especially in the north in the hands of Hezbullah. Hamas probably has some in Gaza too, but to use them would be a tactical mistake, escalating the conflict when they may not be ready to, revealing their weapons caches and tipping their hand in other ways. Hamas will hold them back until they feel its necessary, such as in if the Israelis were to mount another “incursion” into Gaza.

I am still in awe about the Iron Dome. They can take out these short range rockets. They are even capable to detecting if a rocket will land in empty field, and if so to let it go. It not only saves ammo but allows the system to focus on other rockets that may hurt people. Its really a huge technological leap that may some day render short range missiles totally ineffective weapons.

Israel could build a tunnel from Gaza to Egypt with a sign on the Gaza side stating “Supplies and camel sex”. It would have a secret shunt, so the palis can exit to Egypt, but on the return path the shunt would direct them to a trap-door that would dump them into the ocean. If not that, they should bomb the crap out of Gaza.

Inaccurate missles?

So far, I’m amazed that so few of those poorly guided missles have hit the Dome of the Rock, thereby reducing that fragile old building to a pile of rubble.

I don’t know how long it will take, but, after Hamas finishes clearing the top of the Temple Mount, there will lots of room to build the Third Temple.

missles

The Katyusha and Grad rockets don’t have the range to reach Jerusalem. They are rumored to have weapons that exceed that range. Anything striking TDOTR would be blamed on Israel, anyway.

The Israeli plan for Gaza is to cut 10 roads to the sea, making 10 sectors with military forces positioned along the boarder, the sea and Israel proper. From those 10 new zones, the IDF will begin to cut grid squares and pacify each zone. It will be quick and it will be bloody for the IDF and those who oppose them. It is how war in Gaza will unfold and it will be a final occupation until every inch is scrutinized and cleared of the Pali-warmongers.

My idea is that sometimes the best response to a illogical or irrational attack is NOT a “measured”, “proportional” counter-attack.

I believe there must be enough HAMAS missle fragments lying around to permit someone to “reconstruct” a missle that would function.

Would that missle be a HAMAS missle? Yes, absolutely.

Where was that missle’s launch-site? It was a HAMAS-produced barrage, so NO ONE KNOWS.

They work perfectly and effectively. Killing terrorist with x-rays (gamma, alpha, etc) and leave the buildings and structures in tact. There is little residual radation left to contaminate since airburst. Google is your friend. IIRC, the French made the best neutron bombs and gave the recipe to the South Africans, which gave them to Israel in the mid-70s.

4 hours ago Israel authorized the call up of 40,000 reserves.

At least 66 more rockets fired by Hamas today, only 8 of which were shot down by Iron Dome. Many rockets land in open areas but they destroy many Israeli homes as well (even if people reach the bomb shelters in time).

Ground operation looks inevitable!

Operation will last ‘very, very long time,’ says officer

Channel 2’s Roni Daniel quotes a “very, very senior” IDF officer as saying that Operation Protective Edge will last a “very, very long time.”

The officer says a ground operation “is certainly being considered,” while Daniel himself assesses that “a ground operation will certainly be necessary.”

Yes that would be extremely messy. I presume they would do one or 2 strips at a time? Draw the enemy in, making future incursions a little easier? Or all 10 at once? Either way, better than what they did last time. And this time they may actually have a little support from Egypt. Maybe...

I’m a little puzzled why the only supporters of Israel in the U.S. are from the right / Christian side of the aisle.

Because as born again Christians, we believe the Bible identifies the Jewish people as God's chosen race. In the Abrahamic Covenant, God has promised to bless those that bless Israel and to curse those who curse Israel. In this current dispensation of grace and the New Testament covenant, God is now working through the church, but following the rapture of the church, God will once again work through the nation of Israel and the Jewish people especially in Israel. Hence the focus in the Great Tribulation will be centered in Israel and Jerusalem. Since liberal left-wing democRATs disbelieve the Bible, they support the current Satanic efforts to destroy Israel with the muzlim hordes.

.
Jews here, for whatever reason, seem oblivious to the tenuous condition of the nation of Israel.

Most of the Jews in the U.S. (as well as in western Europe) are secular, liberal, left-wing Jews and that is why they voted 78% for 0dumb0 in both 2008 and 2012 U.S. elections. Their real religion & core beliefs are radical left-wing Marxist ideology, and therefore 0dumb0 could roast & eat a young Jewish girl on national TV and the 78% U.S. Jews would STILL vote for 0dumb0 & the democRATs. Likewise the secular liberal left-wing Jews in this country actually despise Israel and would prefer to see Israel destroyed. With Israel still in existence, it is a constant reminder to their liberal left-wing minds that God is still alive and well, and some day God will renew his covenant & protection of the nation of Israel.

A large number of Jews believed, after the horrors of the Nazi regime and the perceived weak response of the USA to Jews caught in its jaws, that conservatism was more dangerous to Jews than liberalism was. They did not envision, however, that liberalism would embrace the unspeakable.

There is really no comparison. 4 million Israelis, 49% of their population are forced into bomb shelters. Israel’s main airport, Ben Gurion, was targeted and closed temporarily. The Dimona nuclear power plant was targeted.
