One Million Israelis Under Missile Fire

Pages: 1 2

Six years ago, these and other Gush Katif residents pleaded their case to the government and the media, warning that missiles will reach Ashdod if they and the IDF leave Gaza. Today, they point out that the 60 kilometer range Iranian Grad missiles in Gaza can easily reach the other tent encampments on Sderot Rothschild in Tel-Aviv. The former Gaza residents are genuinely concerned about attacks on other Israeli communities, including those in Tel Aviv, even though the leaders of the Tel Aviv encampment probably favored the forced expulsion of Jewish families from Gaza.

As the Internet site News1 headlined on Saturday night, one million Israelis in a 40 kilometer radius from Gaza are now under missile fire.

While Iron Dome batteries haves been erected near Beershava and  Ashkelon, Ofakim and other Israeli communities can only dream of having an Iron dome battery to protect their town.

Ofakim, a development town located 20 kilometers from Gaza with a population of 30,000 people, was hit Saturday night by a Grad missile which exploded directly into the Amoyal family’s home. The rocket left their family home completely destroyed, something I hadn’t seen in five years of living and documenting Qassam attacks on Sderot.

At the Amoyal home, I saw brick walls up to 20 centimeters thick crashed and blown away into the kitchen, demolishing four rooms of the entire house, leaving Kfir Amoyal, age 25 , alone, shivering in his bedroom, suffering from shock and from light wounds.

Attacks from Gaza and Israeli targeted responses will continue for the foreseeable future. To our dismay, global media will continue focusing on Israel’s response to terrorism while ignoring or minimizing the terrorists’ and their leaders’ actions and constant declarations of their intention to wipe us off the map and out of existence.

In addition to our remarkable military capabilities, Israel needs a policy corollary to the Iron Dome when it comes to dealing with the driving force behind the Gaza terror regime and their counterparts in other parts of the country.

Israel must deal with the root of the problem and not waste time debating which town to protect or continue throwing money at complex and expensive technology that will, at best, only prevent a small percentage of rockets from reaching their targets.

    “Israel must deal with the root of the problem.” So when are they going to assassinate Putin and go to war with China?

    • ziontruth

      Are you really that stupid? Surely no one can be that stupid—you've got to pretending.

      The root of the problem is the Arab settlers coveting indigenous Palestinian (=Jewish) possessions, including land. Expel those Arab settlers and all the missiles and terrorist attacks are gone. Russia and China can stay plain-dealing business partners of Israel, neither hated nor allied, just motivated by the desire to make money like any rational agent.

      If you haven't noticed, Russia and China don't care about the Middle East. All they care about is money.

    "To our dismay, global media will continue focusing on Israel’s response to terrorism while ignoring or minimizing the terrorists’ and their leaders’ actions and constant declarations of their intention to wipe us off the map and out of existence."

    And so they will keep doing until the Jewish State acts on its legal authority to force them to cease and desist from their anti-Zionist activism. "Pretty please with sugar on top" won't cut it, nor will appeals to decency and shame, both of which the Marxist-owned media lack (for proof, see the Tucson and Breivik aftermaths and contrast that of Fort Hood). The media have decided to wage war against the Jewish State, so the Jewish State is legally cleared to wage war back on them. Who is in a war must do as in a war; the war of ideas is no less important than the physical battleground.

      There is no legal authority to stop anti-Zionist activism.

      • ziontruth

        Not yet, but there will be. Real Jewish leadership will arise in the Jewish State sooner or later (sooner, amen), and then there will be. Count on it.

        You could say the same thing about the Fascist apologists before WWII, and look what happened to them.

        Just look up Father Charles Coughlin, William Pelley Dudley and Fritz Julius Kuhn and you will see what I mean.

        The same fate awaits Israeli anti-zionist activists, and also awaits traitors over here as well…

          You need to lay off the alternate history novels.

          • UCSPanther

            You are engaging in projection here, chump. You are the one reading alternate history novels. Those three I mentioned were real, and spent the rest of their lives in defeated obscurity.

            You are just scared, because the same fate awaits you…

      You're an imbecile to link Communism with Judaism, Commies are an "anti-Zionists'" best friend.

        I guess Winston Churchill was an imbecile too?

  • mah29001

    Flipside, you're nothing more than a Jew-hater, your comments prove that.

  • Joan

    What on earth would make a Jew -hater ? i think it has something to do with those kind of people hating G-d and ignorance . It is some evil that i can't grasp. But if people would get the Israeli News every day like i do, it is unbelievable what they indure through being bombed with missels daily, and while they indured the worst they have in years these past few days , our news here was reporting Jennifer Lopez's wardrobe that went on for hours, while a tiny baby was injured in the terror that took place . How awful they must feel when no one acknowledges what is taking place, how much can they take, I think we will get what we deserve if we don't wake up to Obama and his puppets they are tearing our nation apart and selling it out too. It is obvious , people need to open there eyes and find out why and stop being niave , i keep running into people who are in a dream world over him , where are there brains. Just the study of Israel and the promised land was enough for me to understand perfectly why they love and bless there homeland ,they are so good to there citizens and welcome anyone that is not trying to kill them.

    What about the millions of Palestinians Israel keeps in concentration camps every day, and how they terrorize the Palestinians with bombs? Oh no we can't talk about that here because you don't even consider them to be human. Zionist jews=modern Nazis.

      You are so far out of the realm of reality that no one can reach you…Why don't you try to find another site which just might, for awhile anyway, buy your tripe?

    • ziontruth

      DeSchutzstaffel,

      "What about the millions of [Arab settlers]…"

      They must end their occupation of indigenous Palestinian, meaning Jewish, land for the sake of peace.

      "Zionist jews=modern Nazis."

      You don't really believe that. If a true Nazi like you did, you'd be our staunch friend and ally. That you are, of the Islamic imperialists—proof that it is they who are the modern Nazis.

    • UCSPanther

      Funny. I thought you beer-swilling tatooed neo-nazi skidders worshipped Hitler and Nazi Germany.

      Can't have it both ways, pal.

      Hmm…so not only are you jewish supremacists dangerous, you're also stupid. I'm not white and I'm not a Nazi. I reject what the Nazis stood for, which is why I reject the apartheid zionist entity. So yes, I reject both white supremacism and jewish supremacism. Try to remember that this time.

      I also don't give a damn about Muslims any more than I do other religions. This may be hard for you to believe, but you can dislike jewish beahvior without being a Muslim or a Nazi. That's pretty much why jews have been kicked out of country after country throughout history. People don't like jews because on the whole they're greedy, dishonest, selfish, manipulative, murderous and have little regard for the goys and goyim who they consider inferior to them. Any questions?

      • ziontruth

        "I'm not white…"

        Doesn't matter if you are or not. There are black Nazi-likes, such as Louis Farrakhan, not to mention the pastor who mentored a certain American president.

        "…and I'm not a Nazi."

        You talk like them in every way. You use every smear against the Jews ("hook-nosed vermin" anyone?) they employ.

        "I reject both white supremacism and jewish supremacism."

        Maybe you do, but if so, then only because you're a black supremacist. (See above.)

        "I also don't give a damn about Muslims any more than I do other religions."

        Sure you don't. That's why do demand they be appeased on the Jewish State's expense.

        "That's pretty much why jews have been kicked out of country after country throughout history. People don't like jews because on the whole they're greedy, dishonest, selfish, manipulative, murderous and have little regard for the goys and goyim who they consider inferior to them."

        More Nazi tirades par excellence from this so-called non-Nazi.

        You're not fooling anyone, DeSchutzstaffel. Whatever your skin color, your views on the Jews are 100% Nazi-compatible. If you registered at Stormfront, then for as long as you kept unmentioned your being black, you'd be a respected member there.
