Earlier today I blogged about this story of a Hamas near miss attack on a kindergarten.

An Israeli father was moderately injured by shrapnel Thursday morning, moments after he helped a group of young children — including his son, whose birthday it was — to scramble to safety when a rocket slammed into the Eshkol region community kindergarten.

This time it was even worse.

Daniel Tregerman, a four-year-old Israeli boy, was killed by a mortar shell fired from the Gaza Strip on Friday afternoon. The boy was hit when the shell scored a direct hit on a car at a kibbutz in the Sha’ar Hanegev Region, close to the border with Gaza, initial reports said

According to initial reports, the boy was critically wounded when the projectile made a direct hit on the car he was in, and later died of his wounds.

Several cars and buildings sustained damage from the fire following the explosion of the mortar shell.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Hamas would pay a “heavy price” for the killing.

Also on Friday afternoon, a synagogue in Ashdod suffered a direct hit by a Gaza rocket. The building was badly damaged and three people were injured in that attack, one moderately.

    I can’t take it. People talk about the morality of the IDF not striking because the terrorists hide behind civilians. That twisted morality led to the murder and death of a four year old little Israeli boy. That is unacceptable. Destroy Gaza now.

    • Shauna

      You’re a hypocrite! you mourn the death of one israeli child and encourage the death 100′s of Palestinian children!

      • Gee

        Tough – I want the IDF to level Gaza and frankly I don’t care if a single person survives.

        The Arabs keep begging for it – time to give it to them

        • SCREW SOCIALISM

          Islamofascists keep saying they crave death while Infidels crave life.

          Give Islamofascists what they crave.

        • Americana

          Fine, let’s level the playing field then. Israel can attack and attempt to obliterate the Palestinians only w/the identical weaponry available to the Palestinians. I bet you’d back off your talk of genocide pretty damn quick if identical armaments were to be demanded of each side and Israel were to be stripped of her tanks and anything and everything else in the way of armaments that gives her superiority over the Palestinians.

          • Jake

            Should the US have given Japan an atomic bomb in WW2? To even the odds? Should the UK have told the Nazis the secret to radar before the Battle of Britain ? My talk of genocide is noticing that the MUSLIMS demand the genocide of the Jews. Should Israel just wait for it? At some point the Muslims may just convince Israel the game really is “winner take all” and then what happens after will be on the head of the Muslims. As for what gives Israel its superiority over the Palestinians, it starts with IQ, then morality, then civilization itself.

          • Gee

            Do you think wars are some sort of game? Really are you that stupid? You must be a total moron.

            As for genocide – Islam calls for the genocide of every single non-Muslim in the world. Hamas specifically calls for the genocide of every Jew in the world.

            Did I weep at the death of a few million Nazis? Nope nor will I weep at the death of a few million Islamofasicsts.

            They want a war – then we will give them one

          • tickletik

            It’s all leftist taqqiya. “Americana” could care less about any of this, all he wants is to convince us that our blood is cheap and it is ok bare our throats to the wolves. This is how they always start. First convince the target that it deserves to die, then attack.

          • tickletik

            Yes we know you want to strip us of our weapons. You’d love that wouldn’t you, you sick animal? This is the real mistake of the Israeli government, they have forgotten that human garbage like you is out there circling and waiting for us to make a mistake or show a sign of weakness.

            They should have leveled Gaza. They should level Gaza and drive every one of those Arabs out of the country.

      • IslamDownpressesHumanity

        While brain dead morons like you haven’t noticed that it’s Hamas that breaks every ceasefire, unilaterally, without cause, the rest of us intelligent adults have. Please go back to banging your head on the floor for allah.

      • Matt E

        You sick, demented fool. Palestinians intent is to murder as many Jewish children as possible. That is their goal. Israel’s goal is to prevent this. That Hamas uses their children as human shields doesn’t change the obligation and responsibility of Israel to protect its people by any means possible.

        How dare you write a comment like that after this angel has been murdered. You sick, horrifying person.

      • Jake

        Hamas encourages and actively seeks the deaths of Palestinian children. That is their entire strategy. And yes I mourn the death of one Israeli child because that child was innocent and had he lived he would have grown up to be a contributor to my civilization. And what will those Palestinian children grow up to be? What they have been trained to be – Islamic Nazis who want to kill my family. So no I don’t mourn them.

      • SCREW SOCIALISM

        Hamass MUST STOP using children as HUMAN SHIELDS.

        As if Islamofascists give a damn about any children.

        See Syria where 191,000+ have been killed – Arabs killing Arabs.

        • IslamDownpressesHumanity

          Not all the victims are Arab. Assyrian and Armenian Christians are also on the islamic hit list — in the exact same way they were in Armenia in the early 20th century and for exactly the same islamic reasons.

      • SCREW SOCIALISM

        Remember it was your heroes who traded one Israeli for 1,027 Pal-e-SWINIANS.

        And Obama traded one deserter for 5 Taliban pigs.

        You could not care less about the life of any child because you are a savage.

      • UCSPanther

        Wanna know what will save a lot of lives?

        When Hamas is finally burned into a mere footnote in history…

        • IslamDownpressesHumanity

          I hate to say it, but the elimination of Hamas will only make a temporal difference. Another islamic fascist organization will take power in Gaza and start firing rockets into Israel all over again under a different islamic brand name. Hezbollah, Al Qaida, Hamas, ISIS, Al Shabaab, Al Kebab, they’re all heads of the same hydra: islam.

          • UCSPanther

            They’ll all get theirs’ too one day. It always happens.

      • nobullhere

        Palestinian children are future terrorists, asshole.

        • Americana

          Palestinian children are future terrorists only because of their bad luck in being born to a subjugated, dispossessed people who are fighting for their right to a nation.

          • Gee

            They can have a nation – what they can’t have is our land. They are the thieves and occupiers.

          • tickletik

            Bad luck for them then. They are welcome to leave.

          • nobullhere

            They’re not dispossessed. There are luxury hotels, shopping malls and beaches in Gaza, all the means to a promising future, if they didn’t pursue their futile dream of destroying Israel. Not only that, they’re amongst the most overweight people on the planet. Palestinian children are future terrorists because of Islam, and the hate that is instilled into them from birth until death. Not only that, they’re the ultimate parasites, our money gets squandered on them with nothing back in return.

      • tickletik

        You’re right. We shouldn’t mourn his death, we should be avenging it. Maybe we should also be deliberately aiming our rockets and missiles at their children

    • Americana

      No one can take it. But destroying Gaza and everyone in it is not the solution that should be acceptable to Israel nor should it be acceptable to Jews elsewhere in the world.

      This is an opportunity for Israel and Hamas to realize they have common purpose. The Palestinians don’t want to be part of a Caliphate.

      • Gee

        You really know absolutely nothing about Arabs or the Middle East – shut your stupid hole already.

        You have proven to us that you are an idiot – trust me on this

  • http://www.stubbornthings.org NAHALKIDES

    Let’s hope there are no more cease fires – Netanyahu needs to wipe Hamas out to the last man if they won’t surrender, no matter what the rest of the world thinks.

    • Shauna

      You don’t care about kids if you only value a certain race of children

      • Gee

        Yup sure do. I do not care one iota for the children of the enemy. We need to kill any Islamofascists

      • IslamDownpressesHumanity

        Do you think none of us najjis kaffir have noticed that charter of Hamas cites a ahadith that calls for the extermination of Jews? Hamas started this conflict so the blood of their people is on their hands.

      • http://www.stubbornthings.org NAHALKIDES

        I’m not suggesting that the IDF deliberately target children – Hamas makes such casualties inevitable by using them as human shields. You can’t have peace until Hamas is destroyed; therefore, I want it destroyed.

        • SCREW SOCIALISM

          Israel has a High Tech Iron Dome.

          Hamass has their Low Tech Human Shield Dome.

          • Americana

            Israel has a high-tech Iron Dome anti-missile defense system only because the U.S. paid $225 million yet again to refurbish its parts and projectiles. It may have been invented by Israelis but it’s being paid for largely by the U.S.

          • Gee

            We put in over $1 billion so no it wasn’t largely paid for by the US. What the US wants is our technology because the US doesn’t have any sort of missile defense system.

      • SCREW SOCIALISM

        You don’t care about the life of a child. You view a child as a propaganda tool.

        You are as savage as Hamass, ISIS, Boko Haram, Al Qada, Taliban, Fascist Iran.

      • nobullhere

        We didn’t care about the lives of German and Japanese kids 70 years ago. We went for outright victory. Whoever was underneath our bombs, tough luck. We knew what they were doing and supporting by 1944. They started the war, they never felt one bit sorry for their victims, and now they must reap the consequences was the order of the day. You win by annihilating the enemy completely in total war. If you don’t destroy them utterly, they keep causing trouble until they win or until you finally decide enough is enough after taking one atrocity too many.

  • 2sloe

    SO very sad.
    It was only a matter of “When”, not “If” this would happen :-(
    Gaza needs to be flattened & churned into the dirt until hamas is eliminated from there.
    USA TODAY reports “The attack occurred early Friday evening in a southern Israeli village along the frontier.” Is “the frontier” supposed to indicate some kind of remote wilderness place, far from normal habitations??
    A synagogue was also hit… I suppose that was right inside the OK Corral.

    The iron dome’s self “defense” is not the answer.
    Attack. Retake all of Gaza.

    • nobullhere

      Napoleon said “An army which stays within its fortifications has lost the battle”. Too true. You don’t win without eventually going on the attack.

  • shyama

    It’s is very sad that this innocent boy was killed just as it is horrific that almost 600 innocent Palestinians children have been killed. The names of all those children should be on this article as well. I am so sick of the hypocrisy in the value of life!

    • 2sloe

      “……..it is horrific that almost 600 innocent Palestinians children have been killed”—> BY HAMAS USING THEM AS HUMAN SHIELDS.

    • Gee

      According to international law – so long as we do not target civilians we are well within our rights to use as much force as required to protect our citizens.

      The lives of enemy civilians are not our concern.

      I care as much about enemy civilians as I do about the families of Nazis and for the exact same reason.

      • SCREW SOCIALISM

        Gee AKBAR!

      • Americana

        No, that’s not quite what the requirement is for avoiding civilian casualties and your wording indicates quite clearly that you likely know just how Israel is skirting the issue of targeting civilians. That skirting of the issues of targeting Palestinian civilians is why the Palestinians are intent on joining the International Criminal Court. That’s also another sign that the Palestinians might be arriving at a watershed moment in their seeking nationhood. Once they’ve joined the ICC, they’ll find it much harder to escape legal repercussions of their tactical choices. If they join the ICC, will it have any effect on their tunnels and their methods of attacking Israel? it will be interesting to see how the ICC treats Palestinian actions.

        http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304893404579532062791271786

        From the above link:

        UNITED NATIONS—A Palestinian official on Tuesday said the International Criminal Court is among the 63 international agencies and treaties the Palestine Liberation Organization will seek to join amid the collapse of peace talks with Israel.

        “We will proceed with the [United Nations] treaties and gradually join different agencies and the last will be the International Criminal Court,” said Mustafa Barghouti, a member of the PLO’s central council, in a conference call with reporters. Such a move would allow the Palestinians to bring cases against Israel of alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity.

        But in an illustration of the conflict among Palestinian factions, a senior official with the party that dominates the PLO on Tuesday denied such a move was at hand, saying the Palestinians want to avoid angering the U.S.

        “Every single agreement that we sign or are going to sign will have so many implications on Israel, because each agreement indicates clearly what are the violations of international law that Israel is doing,” Mr. Barghouti told the call, which was organized by the nonprofit Institute for Middle East Understanding.

        “What is wrong with us becoming a modern democracy that follows international law? [Israel] should welcome this,” he said.

        Last week, Israel suspended peace talks and imposed economic sanctions on Palestinians over Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s agreement to form a unity government with Hamas, the Islamist group that is Israel’s sworn enemy.

        Mr. Barghouti indicated that the intention to join the ICC is an effort by the Palestinians to strengthen their position after the collapse of the peace negotiations.

        The Palestinians have talked about joining the ICC before, but didn’t give Mr. Abbas the authority to seek to do so until Sunday and didn’t confirm until Tuesday that the ICC was on the list.

        • Gee

          Actually that is EXACTLY what the Geneva Convention states. You are wrong as always. So long as Israel does not target civilians there is no war crime.

          Let them go to their apartheid court. The ICC has no jurisdiction over Israel and Israel has never committed a single war crime. Now the Arabs have committed several hundred thousand in the last year alone.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      Arabs don’t care about the life of a child. That’s why they use them as Human Shields. Fascist Iran used children to clear mine fields after the 8 year Iraq/Iran war. The pedophile “prophet” muhammed married a 9 year old girl.

    • nobullhere

      Hamas put those children in harms way, and those same 600 Palestinian children have been prevented from becoming the terrorists of tomorrow. Their parents and the present generation of Hamas terrorists were once children, and bleeding hearts saved them from being eliminated 20 years ago, thereby giving them the chance to become terrorists in later life.

    • zaidyavi

      600 Palestinian children killed . Where did you get your figures from ?

  • IslamDownpressesHumanity

    My condolences go out to this little boy’s family. I can only imagine their grief.

  • Texas Patriot

    Israel’s tolerance of Islamic terrorism is to blame for this boy’s death.
