The Palestinian Rocket and Propaganda Offensive

Hamas-rocketsSince Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip in 2005, Hamas and its co-jihadists have fired more than 8,000 rockets into Israel.  They have been conducting an unrelenting Nazi-style rocket blitz for years, except during cease-fires that are hastily negotiated after Israel strikes back. Hamas’s rocket blitz has intensified massively in recent days to new heights. Over the past several days, Hamas and Islamic Jihad have fired more than 550 rockets and mortars from Gaza into Israel, with the intent to kill and terrorize innocent civilians, including children.

On July 9th alone, Hamas fired nearly 100 rockets towards Israeli population centers. And it has raised the ante in terms of the sophistication and reach of its rockets, with longer range rockets targeting Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and Israel’s nuclear power plant in the city of Dimona. Israel’s Iron Dome defense system has had remarkable success so far. It prevented what could have been a horrible nuclear disaster by intercepting one of the rockets out of the sky near Dimona. Iron Dome has also knocked out rockets over Tel Aviv and other major population centers. But no defense system is foolproof. Hence, after warning Hamas to no avail that it will face sharp reprisals if it does not stop the rocket attacks, Israel launched Operation Protective Edge.

To date, Israel has responded with air strikes aimed at Hamas strongholds, hitting more than 560 targets in Gaza during the past two days.  Its targets consist of arms storage facilities and manufacturing plants, military compounds, tunnels, buried rocket launching pads, a command and control base and homes of Hamas and Jihad Islamist commanders. Israel does not deliberately target Palestinian civilians. To the contrary, whenever possible, the Israeli military makes phone calls to suspected Hamas operatives’ homes and drops leaflets in advance of strikes to warn occupants to get out of harm’s way immediately.

Although Israel has also authorized the call-up of approximately 40,000 reservists and amassed tanks near the Israeli-Gaza border, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has to date resisted calls for launching a ground operation. However, his patience is running out. “The army is ready for all possibilities,” the prime minister said after a meeting of his security cabinet. “The operation will expand and continue until the fire toward our towns stops and quiet returns.”

In a sign that the start of a ground operation may be very near if the rocket firing does not stop, it has been reported by DEBKAfile that, on July 10, “the IDF advised 100,000 Palestinian civilians to leave their homes in the northern Gaza villages of Beit Lahiya, Beit Hanoun, Greater Ibsen and Smaller Ibsen and head west to the coast or south to remove themselves from danger.”

Hamas remains defiant. Its political chief, Khaled Meshal, rejected any efforts at mediation, declaring in a televised speech: “We receive calls from mediators from Arab and Western sides to broker a ceasefire. We say to those who ask us for a lull: Go back!”

Hamas also put out a video promising: “Zionists, wait and see stabbing attacks everywhere. Wait for suicide attacks on every bus, café and street.”

Hamas has the backing of its unity government partner Palestinian Authority President Abbas, whom, playing the usual Palestinian victimhood card, accused Israel of committing “genocide.”

Here is the perverse logic of the Palestinian propaganda offensive in a nutshell:  Hamas and its co-jihadists can launch long-range rockets aimed indiscriminately at Israeli civilians in major population centers and try to precipitate a nuclear disaster with impunity, but when Israel strikes back selectively to take out military targets in Gaza used to launch or support the rocket firings, Israel, according to Abbas, is committing “genocide.”

Not surprisingly, the Palestinians are successfully pushing this outrageous, truth-challenged narrative in their favorite venue, the United Nations.

At the insistence of the Palestinian UN observer state delegation and its Arab allies, the UN Security Council held an emergency meeting on July 10th.  The Palestinians want the Security Council to take action against Israel for what they brand as Israel’s “aggression.” After UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon warned the Security Council of the “risk of an all-out escalation in Israel and Gaza” and appealed to both sides for “maximum restraint” – his favorite phrase of late – Palestinian UN Ambassador Riyad Mansour accused Israel of war crimes. He said that Israel was cynically using “this latest aggression against the Palestinian people to bring about collapse of our government.”

Ambassador Mansour emoted how Palestinian children were being killed by Israeli air strikes, neglecting to mention how Hamas uses Palestinian civilians, including children, as human shields.

“I speak on behalf of the suffering and grieving Palestinian people,” Mansour said, “who are enduring yet another barrage of death, destruction, trauma and terror, which is being perpetrated willfully and maliciously against them by the Israeli occupying forces before the eyes of the world as it persists with its nearly five-decade long belligerent military occupation.”

Ambassador Mansour also announced that Palestinian President Abbas has officially requested from the Swiss government that it convene the High Contracting Parties of the Geneva Conventions. The ostensible purpose would be to investigate and possibly sanction Israel for alleged violations of its responsibilities as the occupying power and for the alleged commission of war crimes.

Apparently, Ambassador Mansour and his boss President Abbas have forgotten that Israel vacated Gaza completely in 2005. It is Hamas, not Israel, which exercises all the functions of government in Gaza, which in turn is part of what the Palestinians claim to be the State of Palestine.  Hamas’s idea of how to govern is to use Gaza as a base from which to launch attacks against Israeli civilians.  The Israeli government’s idea of how to govern is to defend and protect its citizens against such wanton and potentially deadly assaults from an area it does not control.

Recall that after Israel vacated Gaza, it kept the border crossings between Israel and Gaza open with security arrangements mutually agreed upon between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. That worked until Hamas took over Gaza and expelled Abbas’s Fatah faction. Has Ambassador Mansour forgotten the Palestinian civilian casualties in Gaza inflicted by Hamas during its clashes with Fatah? Now Ambassador Mansour is defending the actions of the same Hamas against the civilians of Israel, which he must do since Hamas is officially a co-equal partner in what he calls the “national consensus government.”

In fact, when asked by reporters at a press briefing after the July 10th Security Council meeting if the Palestinian Authority accepted responsibility for the rockets fired by Hamas from Gaza, Ambassador Mansour responded, “The Palestinian people are one. The government is one.  The president is president Abbas.”

If that is so, then this unity government must accept responsibility at minimum for Hamas’s current round of hundreds of rocket launchings targeting Israeli civilians in major population centers. The “State of Palestine,” which became a party to the Fourth Geneva Convention earlier this year and now seeks to invoke the Convention against Israel, is itself in direct violation of Article 33 of the Convention prohibiting “all measures of intimidation or of terrorism.”

Ambassador Mansour claimed that Hamas’s rocket firings were in self-defense.  “We did not start this round of attacks,” he declared. “It is the Israeli government. After the killing of the three settlers [Eyal, Gilad and Naftali], they started this attack against our people. The rockets came after that.”

This is sheer propaganda. Note Ambassador Mansour’s clever reference to “this round of attacks.”  The fact is that Hamas and its cohorts have been firing rockets and mortars at Israel continuously all throughout 2014 – more than 100 – way before the latest crisis and “this” most recent round, not to mention the thousands of rockets launched against Israeli civilians before 2014.

Even Secretary General Ban Ki-moon acknowledged the cause and effect of the current crisis, while urging both sides to stop the violence.   He noted in his remarks to the Security Council that civilians were “caught between Hamas’s irresponsibility and Israel’s tough response.” He added that further escalation, including a possible ground operation, is “preventable only if Hamas stops rocket firing.”

Israeli UN Ambassador Ron Prosor, in his own address to the Security Council on July 10th, pointed out that Hamas was committing war crimes against both Israeli civilians and Palestinian civilians:

“Hamas is exploiting our concern for human life by hiding in Palestinian homes, schools, and mosques and using the basement of a hospital in Gaza as its headquarters. They are committing a double war crime: targeting Israeli civilians while hiding behind Palestinian civilians.”

Ambassador Prosor told the Security Council that, while Secretary General Ban Ki-moon delivered his remarks to the Council, “another five rockets were fired from Gaza,” with one landing on a house. Israel isn’t looking “for a Band-Aid solution that will allow Hamas to rest and regroup,” he added. Israel’s goal “is to remove the threat posed by Hamas by dismantling its military infrastructure and restore quiet in Israel. Hamas must understand that it cannot target Israeli civilians.”

Israel’s leaders have a responsibility to protect their own civilians, which the government is doing while trying to mitigate any unintended collateral damage. The Palestinian leaders, including President Abbas, are failing to fulfill their responsibilities to their own people by placing them in harm’s way as a direct result of the jihadists’ war to destroy Israel.  Hamas is simply following through on its Charter’s declaration that “’Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it. There is no solution for the Palestinian problem except by Jihad.”

The United Nations and other bodies reflecting the opinions of the so-called international community enable this jihad so long as they try to impede Israel’s legitimate right to defend itself and protect its civilian population.

      Unfortunately, acting “in accordance with the exigencies of survival” means an Israeli ground invasion of Gaza. Israel, to date, has put off a ground invasion, because they’re hoping Hamas will stop the rocket attacks, and because they want to avoid kidnappings of IDF soldiers. But I don’t see any alternative to a ground invasion, because Hamas won’t stop the rockets. The IDF needs to go into Gaza, and clean out Hamas HQ, in that hospital basement. Thank you for your always sagacious comments.

        Thank you.

        I’m hoping that Israeli leadership realizes that Obama has made the US government it’s enemy and that it needs to eliminate as many fronts from which it can be attacked as possible. Gaza is the obvious first one that needs to be eliminated.

        My theory on Israel supplying food and water to the residents of Gaza is that it should be used to separate the Hamas operatives from as many of the average citizen as possible. They should set up zones where people can come for food and water, with the routes defended by troops. If Hamas tries to prevent people from getting food and water, shoot them. If Hamas operatives come for food and water, arrest them.

        • ObamaYoMoma

          My theory on Israel supplying food and water to the residents of Gaza is that it should be used to separate the Hamas operatives from as many of the average citizen as possible.

          In other words, you mean the radical Muslim extremists that comprise Hamas operatives separated from the average Gazan citizens that are no doubt peace loving moderates and that are no different whatsoever from peace loving Christians and infidels. Oh yeah….you are a neo-con on steroids all right.

          I hate to rain on your naïve parade again, neocon, because I know like an adolescent brat again you will inevitably pitch another fit, but nonetheless all mainstream orthodox Muslims in the world are jihadists in one form or another, either violent or non-violent. Indeed, there are no civilian non-combatants in Islamic totalitarian society, as all non-conformers are routinely executed for apostasy and blasphemy, unless they non-conform in secret in which case they are irrelevant. Meanwhile, if they non-conform openly in public, they are dead.

          They should set up zones where people can come for food and water, with the routes defended by troops.

          That would work tremendously well. Indeed, that’s about as viable as GWB’s plan to fight a war to stop radical Islam from hijacking moderate Islam. Meanwhile, his only problem was there was never such a thing as either radical Islam or moderate Islam. Indeed, it worked great for GWB though. I’m sure your plan most certainly will also work about as well as his did. Rolling my eyes. It’s a brilliant stroke of genius for a neocon, even if I must say so myself.

          If Hamas tries to prevent people from getting food and water, shoot them. If Hamas operatives come for food and water, arrest them.

          Yeah right! Brilliant!

          Sorry, the devil made me do it. You left something too wide open, thus I couldn’t help myself. I had to do it.

          • truebearing

            Why look! It’s Johnny-one-note, peddling his idea.

            You live in a narrow, little world where your one idea has to be right. You have no solutions, just the monotonous repetition of your one-note theme. All Muslims are exactly the same blah, blah, blah.

            What about the Green movement in Iran? They wanted democracy. What about the people trapped in Muslim societies who go along with Islam on the surface so they aren’t killed by the Islamists? Ever think of that, genius? Of course not, you’re too busy repeating yourself. The truth is that your real motivation is to see your one idea, over and over again because it’s the bestest idea in the history of the universe and you’re the genius who came up with it.

            You are seriously deluded, pathologically rigid, and simplistic in your understanding of everything (which is the same thing) I’ve seen you rant about. This latest comment is more of the tedious recycling of your one idea. Spare yourself the effort. We understand your idea. It isn’t particulary hard to understand oversimplification.

            Separating Hamas from their human shields is a worthwhile goal from a humanitarian and strategic standpoint. Yes, many, if not most of the Muslims in Gaza are sympathetic to the objectives of Hamas, but not all of them. Divide and conquer works with Muslims too.

            You have entirely made up my agreement with everything Bush did, which is dishonest and wrong. I am not a big fan of nation building. We should have spent the money on going into Iran and destroying the Twelvers. I know you’re delusional, but try to stick to facts in evidence. Enough with your paranoid theories about neo-cons.

            I suppose Israel could wait for your scintillatingly brilliant solution to spontaneously occur, when unicorns and elves return to earth and the non-Muslim countries suddenly band together to defeat Islam. Meanwhile, Israel no longer exists because it didn’t destroy its enemies when it needed to, 100,000 years earlier.

            You like to throw around the term “neo-con” as if it is a pejorative, but undoubtedly can’t define it. Usually “neo-con” is used as a derisive code for Jew, but I’m not Jewish, so that will probably disappoint you. You seem to feel the need to label everyone that is a threat to your only idea, and I understand. You only have one idea and if it is refuted, you have nothing but your discredited ideology rattling around in your empty head.
            I have yet to see anyone who thinks with his ideology that has a fully functioning mind. Ideologies don’t think. They limit thinking. You are exhibit A. And for your desperately needed information, conservatism is not an ideology, like you seem to think it is. It also is not something that you get to narrowly define. You are not the arbiter of conservatism or truth. You are merely a person with a brittle ego who is excessively proud of his one idea, and suffers from double-barrel vision, among other things.

          • ObamaYoMoma

            Why look! It’s Johnny-one-note, peddling his idea.

            Johnny-one-note did pretty damn good last night bursting your bubble like a step child on a wide array of notes, i.e., topics. So much for the Johnny one-note myth. In fact, he wiped the floor clean with you!

            You have no solutions

            You mean like your solution to supply food and water to the average citizen of Gaza, i.e., read: so-called moderate Muslims, to separate them from the so-called radical and extremist Muslims that are Hamas operatives. Yeah right…that’s utterly hilarious.

            What about the Green movement in Iran?

            What about it? What does that have to do with Israel or Hamas?

            They wanted democracy.

            Why do you think it was called the Green Movement fool? Damn how naïve can you be? You really are far more oblivious than I ever imagined.

            The last thing those Muslims that constituted the Green Movement were seeking was democracy. Indeed, the dead giveaway was when they called their movement the Green Movement in honor of their holy prophet Muhammad’s favorite color green, while yelling Allah Akbar (God is great) at night from the roof tops in honor of Allah.

            Indeed, the last thing people who call their movement green in honor of their holy prophet Muhammad’s favorite color and who also holler Allah Akbar (God is Great) from the roof tops at night to honor Allah want to do is dishonor their holy prophet and Allah at the same time by seeking democracy, which in Islam is an abomination.

            As democracy is the rule of man, and the rule of man in Islam is considered to be an abomination by all Muslims that must be obliterated. Since mere mortal man is severely flawed relative to Allah (God) who is omnipotent.

            As a matter of fact, all laws that emanate from mere mortal man, including all democracies, must eventually be destroyed by Islam because they are viewed as abominations. As Sharia (Islamic totalitarian law) because it is considered to be divine, that is emanating directly from Allah (God), and in which is also considered by all Muslims to constitute his will, is absolutely flawless and perfectly just, and as such it is infinitely far superior relative to that of the rule of man.
            Now I realize that a lot of clueless neocons use that silly idiotic claim to suggest that Obama is a moron when it comes to foreign policy, but nonetheless those moonbats like you don’t have the first fricking clue what the heck they are talking because they are naïve neocons.

            What about the people trapped in Muslim societies who go along with Islam on the surface so they aren’t killed by the Islamists? Ever think of that, genius?

            What about them? For all intents and purposes, they are irrelevant. Just like the people who lived in the Communist Soviet Union who secretly weren’t communist were also irrelevant. Indeed, because they were silent, they were irrelevant.

            Moreover, no one is killed by Islamists, as the word Islamists was hijacked by neocons to denote radicals and extremists subsequent to 9/11. Prior to 9/11, the word Islamists referred to scholars who dedicated their lives to the study of Islam. That is until their scholarship was discredited by that phony Edward Said.

            Meanwhile, Islamists are like radical and extremist Muslims, in that they only exist within the recesses of your unhinged mind and the unhinged minds of your fellow neocon ilk. As all Muslims, in stark contrast to only Islamists, i.e., radicals and extremists, are jihadists in one form or another, either violent or non-violent, since waging jihad is a fundamental holy obligation incumbent upon all Muslims per the dictates of Islam. Thus, since all Muslims are jihadists in one form or another, either violent or non-violent, then they can’t all be radicals and extremists that constitute Islamists.

            Of course not, you’re too busy repeating yourself. <i/

            Setting you straight while wiping the floor clean with you like you are a red headed stepchild isn’t repeating myself, it’s proving by demonstration that you are clueless moonbat.

            The truth is that your real motivation is to see your one idea, over and over again because it’s the bestest idea in the history of the universe and you’re the genius who came up with it.

            That so-called one idea you allege, wiped the floor clean with you last night on a whole array of topics. Don’t look now, moonbat, but it is happening again tonight.

            You are seriously deluded, pathologically rigid, and simplistic in your understanding of everything (which is the same thing) I’ve seen you rant about.

            You mean sort of the same way you said that the average so-called Palestinians citizens should be separated from Hamas operatives? Yeah right! You are hilarious if anything at all. Indeed, you are hardly worth my time.

            Separating Hamas from their human shields is a worthwhile goal from a humanitarian and strategic standpoint. Yes, many, if not most of the Muslims in Gaza are sympathetic to the objectives of Hamas, but not all of them. Divide and conquer works with Muslims too.

            You are right. I have to admit. It will work about as well as GWB’s democracy project worked in the Islamic totalitarian world or about as well as GWB’s war to stop the so-called “religion of peace” from being hijacked by radical Islam worked. In other words, it won’t work!

            You have entirely made up my agreement with everything Bush did, which is dishonest and wrong.

            Dude…you shouldn’t drink and post at the same time, because I don’t have a fricking clue what you are talking about.

            I am not a big fan of nation building. We should have spent the money on going into Iran and destroying the Twelvers. I know you’re delusional, but try to stick to facts in evidence. Enough with your paranoid theories about neo-cons.

            Yeah right! Man…this is degenerating into stupidity and getting to be funnier at the same time. Like I said man, you shouldn’t post and drink at the same time, because you only make a fool out of yourself.

            I suppose Israel could wait for your scintillatingly brilliant solution to spontaneously occur,

            I never said or suggested that it would be spontaneous, but nevertheless the only way to stop the global jihad at large will be for the collective infidel world to rise up by uniting to stop it, as it won’t stop by itself.

            Meanwhile, Israel no longer exists because it didn’t destroy its enemies when it needed to, 100,000 years earlier.

            Again, you shouldn’t drink and post at the same time.

            You like to throw around the term “neo-con” as if it is a pejorative, but undoubtedly can’t define it.

            Neocons are pseudo conservatives who don’t have the first fricking clue about Islam like you. They also to a man believe that GWB’s so-called “War on Terror” was somehow a great military victory, especially in Iraq, until Obama came along and screwed everything up.

            Moreover, they are obsessed with terrorism because it is violent, and at the same time oblivious to jihad, which is astronomically far more non-violent relative to violent, and they believe that the vast overwhelming majority of Muslims in the world are so-called moderates and that only a tiny minority of Muslims are radicals and extremists that they call Islamists and that are perpetrating terrorism in response to various Western provocations. In other words, they are idiots.

            Oh, that’s right, I almost forgot, they also believe that radical Islam is hijacking moderate Islam. Not to mention they also blow the threats emanating from Islam way out of proportion relative to the actual threat.

            Usually “neo-con” is used as a derisive code for Jew, but I’m not Jewish, so that will probably disappoint you.

            Neocons constitute for the most part ignoramuses and since ignoramuses are products of all societies, all religions, and all cultures, then almost anyone and everyone can be a dumb neocon like you.

            Oh yeah, I almost forgot, neocons also believe that all Muslims have the same exact aspirations as infidels. Thus, they advocate doing nation-building missions to not only lift up our eternal mortal enemies, but to also attempt to democratize them, and never mind the fact that democratizing the Islamic totalitarian world is absolutely impossible as long as Islam prevails in their world.

            You seem to feel the need to label everyone that is a threat to your only idea, and I understand.

            Not really, because I don’t have only one idea, but it is obvious you are a moron nonetheless, and please stop drinking and posting at the same time. This is getting exceedingly boring.

            You only have one idea and if it is refuted, you have nothing but your discredited ideology rattling around in your empty head.

            Discredited ideology rattling around wow! Apparently, my one idea was enough to wipe the floor clean with you on a wide array of topics last night. Moreover, moonbat, please make me laugh, try refuting me.

            I have yet to see anyone who thinks with his ideology that has a fully functioning mind.

            Wow man…that’s brilliant. Did you think of all that up by yourself? Like I said, don’t post and drink at the same time, because you will only end up making a fool out of yourself every time.

            Ideologies don’t think. They limit thinking.

            While it’s obvious you are severely mentally handicapped, it is also apparent that you are also hilarious at the same time.

            And for your desperately needed information, conservatism is not an ideology, like you seem to think it is.

            Who said it was an ideology and who is desperate? Certainly, not moi. By the way, how do you know what I think? Are you a mind reader?

            Anyway, it’s a way of life stupid based on life experiences. You don’t have a clue. Plus you keep putting words in my mouth that I didn’t say. Like I said, stop drinking and posting at the same time!

            As for as the rest of your nonsense, stick it where the sun doesn’t shine. It’s too boring. Meanwhile, grow up.

            You’re deluding yourself that you prevailed, but that is typical of narrow-minded ideolgues who cathect on a theory and viciously defend it like their life depends upon it. If you were a little more balanced, you’d realize that I have been a vocal critic of Islam and the West’s limp response to the threat. Why do you make enemies of people you should see as allies just because they don’t accept 1000% of your views? You aren’t omniscient.

            Right, all of those “moderate Muslims” who demonstrated
            against Islamic terrorism in NYC, Washington, DC and in Pennsylvania after 9-11.

            You don’t remember those moderate Muslims demonstrating against terrorism you say; well neither does anyone else my friend because if you’re a moderate in Islam, you are not considered a Muslim but an apostate.

            While I’m sure that there are Muslims who are against the insane slaughter that’s taking place around the world in the name of Islam, unfortunately, they choose to remain silent.

          • truebearing

            I don’t disagree with you on that. I’m not defending Islam or Muslims. I am saying however, that not all Muslims are devout, therefore they aren’t all engaged in jihad. It is an important distinction considering that there are 1.5 billion Muslims.

            There are people living in Muslim countries that are Muslim because it is dangerous to not be Muslim. In Germany, people joined the N azi Party because they wanted the benefits that went with it, or were naive. It was wrong, but they weren’t the Himmlers and Mengeles of the party. Some went along because they were afraid.

            I think it is wrong to say all Muslims are on a jihad. If that was true, WWIII would already be underway.

            You will notice that ObamaYoMama jumped on me and began insulting me because my comment didn’t follow his rigid orthodoxy — kind of like the Islamists are. I don’t disagree with everything he says, but the idea that all 1.5 billion Muslims are devout is ridiculous. No group of human beings is that uniform, even in a cult like Islam.

            That being said, I am very concerned about the spread of Islam and the West’s refusal to see the religion for what it is.

    Israel will get a raw deal at the UN and in many precincts of the media. This is part of the equation that helps to perpetuate conflict, because Hamas knows the media will help it propagandize without question. Israel just has to accept this as the strategic situation and at some point ignore it and press on.

    Does the UN exist for any reason other than to condemn Israel? Israel must wipe out Hamas from Gaza. To end any military operation because this useless world body is calling for it (although they somehow remain silent when rockets fly into Israel endangering their citizens) would only delay the inevitable battle with these terrorists.

    Hamas and the Palestinians act like a bunch of cry-babies. They can bomb the crap out of civilian targets in Israel but the minute Israel responds, they are committing genocide and targeting Palestinian women and children (who Hamas use as human shields). I’m glad Israel are fighting back and I hope they crush Hamas. Enough is enough.. Hamas and the other islamic terrorist groups need to be shown that they don’t rule this world and never will.

      • Joseph Klein

        That’s because Israelis believe in life here on earth, not martyrdom with 72 virgins in “heaven.” Hamas and its jihadist cohorts honor death, including of their own women and children whom they use as human shields. That’s real cowardice – Hamas commanders hiding behind women and children and hiding their weapons in hospitals. Israel, by the way, is using less than 1 thousandth of its military power. That’s called restraint in dealing with Hamas’s multiple war crimes.

    The BDS movement claims Israel has placed a siege on Gaza for all these years. Yet, somehow Hamas was able to rearm and increase their arsenal.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    They have been conducting an unrelenting Nazi-style rocket blitz for years,

    Not really. They blitz Israel, then Israel responds by blitzing them back to destroy their blitz. Then a renewed peace process ensues which like clockwork inevitably fails. Then a new blitz starts. Israel responds again with a blitz back of its own and destroys their blitz again. And this entire process gets repeated again and again in time.

    However, in the interim for the most part there is peace in between the blitzes and, indeed, far more peace than via the so-called peace process, which in reality is really stealth and deceptive jihad employed to weaken Israel and to dupe the infidel world into funding their jihad for them.

    Not to mention as well, Muslims can only make Hudnas with infidels, and Hudnas are just temporary truces designed to be broken sometimes in the future when they deem the time is right. Meanwhile, any Muslim that makes the mistake of signing a permanent peace agreement with infidels as Anwar Sadat did with Israel, will be targeted and assassinated exactly like Anwar Sadat.

    except during cease-fires that are hastily negotiated after Israel strikes back.

    A ceasefire is a perfect example of the purpose of a Hudna that will inevitably be violated when it is deemed the time is right and usually after the latest round of peace talks inevitably fail as always.

    with the intent to kill and terrorize innocent civilians, including children.

    When do Muslim jihadists not target specifically primarily innocent civilian infidels, including women and children, the world over according to the dictates of Sharia because it is the weak underbelly of the infidel world?

    Israel does not deliberately target Palestinian civilians.

    While naïve infidels may believe that there are civilians in so-called Palestinian Islamic totalitarian society, the reality is, however, quite different, as all Muslims, including women and children, are jihadists in one form or another, either violent or non-violent, since waging jihad, which is a holy war waged by all Muslims against all infidels in the cause of Allah to ultimately make Islam supreme, is a fundamental holy obligation incumbent upon all Muslims per the dictates of Islam. In addition, the only way for a Muslim to achieve Allah’s rewards is through jihad.

    Nevertheless, one of the main reasons why so many infidels are so naïve with respect to Islamic totalitarian society, is because they also naively believe that Muslims are terrorists as opposed to what they actually are which is jihadists, and since terrorists aren’t women and children, they naively believe that Muslim women and children are civilians as opposed to what they actually are, which is jihadists.

    Now, of course, infidels may view them as civilians, but nonetheless Islamic totalitarian society doesn’t. In fact, they celebrate the ones that are killed since dying in the cause of Allah is the highest honor in Islamic totalitarian society. While, on the other hand, at the same time they will smear Israel for being the brutal murderers of civilian women and children because they know that resonates throughout infidel society. Indeed, it’s kind of ironic isn’t it?

    the Israeli military makes phone calls to suspected Hamas operatives’ homes and drops leaflets in advance of strikes to warn occupants to get out of harm’s way immediately.

    They are not getting out of harm’s way, as that would be blasphemous and blasphemy in Islam is a capital offense.

    Ambassador Mansour also announced that Palestinian President Abbas has officially requested from the Swiss government that it convene the High Contracting Parties of the Geneva Conventions.

    At the same time that so-called Palestinians are specifically targeting primarily innocent civilian infidels per the dictates of Sharia (Islamic totalitarian law). Now that is hypocritical.

    Not to mention that because Sharia, which is divine law that all Muslims consider to be the “will of Allah (God)” and in which is also considered to be absolutely flawless and perfectly just, must always supersede all laws that emanate from mere mortal man, and since the Geneva Conventions emanate from mere mortal man, Muslims only adhere to Sharia. In fact, all Muslims plan to eventually replace the Geneva Conventions with Sharia in time.

      Is Islam an evil religion? Yes. Its teachings are evil, but not all Muslims are following them, fortunately.

      Why do you insist on calling non-Muslims
      “infidels.” That is what Muslims call us, not what we call ourselves. Are you a deranged Muslim on some kind of ill-conceived jihad?

        Delusional, rigid, simplistic, arrogant, and naive all rolled into one big narcissistic repetition.

        Describing yourself again, I see. Yeah right, you are a legend in your own mind. What a childish moron!

        As with all religions, not all adherents are devout. The ones who aren’t devout are drinking alcohol, smoking hash, consorting with “people of the book” etc. They aren’t on any more of a jihad than you are…maybe less. This simple fact destroys your rant-a-thon.

        Really? Well I’ll be. The major flaw in your infantile analysis, however, is Islam is not even a so-called religion. Indeed, by far more than it is anything else, Islam is an extremely rabid and draconian form of totalitarianism that seeks world domination as opposed to being just a so-called religion.

        Hence, just like the old Communist Soviet Union sent all non-conformers to the Soviet gulags, as Communism is also a very rabid form of totalitarianism, Islam, on the other hand, routinely executes all non-conformers for apostasy and blasphemy.

        Which also just so happens to be all non-conformers who renege on their total, complete, and unconditional submission to the “will of Allah” under the penalty of death for apostasy and death for blasphemy, which also happens to be the first and foremost prerequisite of mainstream orthodox Islam.

        Its teachings are evil, but not all Muslims are following them, fortunately.

        Sorry, neocon, you are not only incredibly oblivious of Islam, but you are also exceedingly naive as well. In any event, again all non-conformers in Islamic totalitarian society are routinely executed for apostasy and blasphemy per the dictates of Islam.

        Apparently, you are naively assuming that the so-called “religion of peace” is actually a so-called religion similar to faith-based religions, but I hate to rain on your clueless infantile parade again, because it is not. For one thing, there is no freedom of conscience allowed in Islam. Thus, unlike adherents of faith based religions that have the freedom of conscience to choose to believe, i.e., have faith, or to choose not to believe, i.e., not have faith, those choices are completely absent in Islam, because again Islam executes all non-conformers, i.e., all apostates and all blasphemers.

        At the risk of becoming redundant, again more than anything else, Islam is a very rabid and draconian form of totalitarianism that seeks world domination, as opposed to being just a so-called religion. In other words, it is in reality a cult and it is also a very totalitarian cult. Figure it out. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist.

        Of course, all Muslims believe that Islam is a religion, i.e., their religion, because they don’t have a clue that Islam is really a cult.

        Also, consider the following excerpt taken from My Noble Koran published by the King Fahd Complex for the Printing of the Holy Qur’an, Madinah, K.S.A.:

        “Al-Jihad (holy fighting) in Allah’s Cause (with full force of numbers and weaponry) is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its pillars (on which it stands). Allah’s Word is made superior, (His Word being Lailaha illallah which means none has the right to be worshipped but Allah), and His Religion (Islam) is propagated. By abandoning Jihad (may Allah protect us from that) Islam is destroyed and the Muslims fall into an inferior position; their honour is lost, their lands are stolen, their rule and authority vanish. Jihad is an obligatory duty in Islam on every Muslim, and he who tries to escape from this duty, or does not in his innermost heart wish to fulfil this duty, dies with one of the qualities of a hypocrite.”

        Again all Muslims are jihadists in one form or another because waging jihad is a fundamental holy obligation incumbent upon all mainstream orthodox Muslims in the world in one form or another. Meanwhile, all those that openly shirk their holy obligations are executed for apostasy and blasphemy. Which means that all Muslims are jihadists in one form or another, with the exception of only those that have apostatized from Islam in secret. Meanwhile, those latter ex-Muslim apostates that have apostatized from Islam in secret, because they are forced to remain silent are of absolutely no consequence and are in fact completely irrelevant.

          “At the risk of becoming redundant, again…”

          When did redundancy ever stop you?

          Islam is a cult. A theocratic cult, and obviously it is totalitarian. We agree on that. My point is that there are 1.5 billion Muslims and they simply are not all jihadists. As with any group, there are devout adherents and varying degrees of less devout adherents. A sizeable number of Muslims are going along with the islamists out of fear for their lives. If all 1.5 billion were on a terroristic jihad, the world would be engulfed in WWIII already. It will get there soon enough with only a minority of Islamists leading the way. Why is that perspective so threatening to you personally?

          • ObamaYoMoma

If all 1.5 billion were on a terroristic jihad, the world would be engulfed in WWIII already. It will get there soon enough with only a minority of Islamists leading the way. Why is that perspective so threatening to you personally?

            In other words, because you are a neocon, you are mesmerized and transfixed primarily on terrorism. To you the primary threat emanating from Islam is the threat emanating from terrorism. Indeed, Muslims primarily murder innocent civilians because they are heartless, vicious, and cold-blooded brutal terrorists. Thus, like all neocons you blow the threat emanating from terrorism as you view it way out of proportion to the actual threat.

            Not only that, but when you watch Muslims brutally executing their captives in mass, that is just further confirmation for you of their radicalism and extremism. Thus, to you terrorists are ruthless radicals and extremists that comprise the dregs of society, i.e., the Islamists.

            Meanwhile, the rest of the Islamic community constitutes the regular Muslims who aren’t radicals and extremists. Otherwise, if they were, the world would be engrossed in World War. Indeed, that’s how you naively view the Islamic totalitarian world.

            Well, as usual you’re wrong again. Innocent civilians aren’t murdered in cold-blood by radical and extremist vicious terrorists. As a matter of fact, terrorism has exactly nothing whatsoever to do with anything, much less the reason why innocent civilians are primarily targeted and murdered in cold-blood by Muslims.

            Instead, they are murdered in cold-blood by mainstream orthodox Muslims that have elected to wage jihad (holy war) via violent means, and the reason why they do it is not because they are vicious cold-blooded terrorists or extremists or radicals. Instead, the reason they do it is because it is specifically proscribed for them to do it by Sharia, because murdering innocent civilians in cold-blood is the weak underbelly of infidel society.

            As a matter of fact, Sharia (Islamic totalitarian law) is so pervasive in Islamic totalitarian society that it even controls the way Muslims clean themselves after defecation.

            Moreover, when we observe ISIS brutally executing their captives, there isn’t anything in the least extreme about it. Oh yeah, it’s extreme all right, not to mention extremely painful for members of Christian/Judeo infidel society to observe. However, Muslims aren’t products of Christian/Judeo society. They are products of Islamic totalitarian society instead, and Muslims always traditionally and brutally murder their captives in emulation of the greatest Muslim that ever lived, i.e., Muhammad, and that isn’t anything new or anything extreme in Islamic totalitarian society. As a matter of fact, it’s a ritual in their society. Anytime, Muslims are victorious, a massive slaughter of captives will soon ensue. Indeed, it is par for the course in their society, and it would be very usual for them not to brutally slaughter their captives mercilessly.

            The same goes for beheading infidels. There is nothing extreme or unusual about it, as that is also a long held tradition in Islamic totalitarian society, and Muslim jihadists do it to this day to emulate Muhammad, the greatest Muslim that ever lived.

            Thus, what you view as extremism, in fact isn’t extreme whatsoever in Islamic totalitarian society. It’s just that you are very unfamiliar with the barbaric behavior of jihadists in Islamic totalitarian society.

            In addition, just like in infidel society where the vast majority of people do not elect to join our all-volunteer military forces, in Islamic totalitarian society the vast majority of Muslims also don’t elect to wage jihad violently either.

            Nonetheless, just like those Americans that elect not to join our all-volunteer military forces aren’t disloyal, those Muslims that don’t elect to wage jihad violently also aren’t disloyal either.

            However, in their case, since waging jihad in one form or another, either violently or non-violently, is a fundamental holy obligation incumbent upon all Muslims, they elect to wage jihad non-violently instead.

            As a matter of fact, a Muslim can only reach Allah’s rewards through waging jihad, as all Muslims who shirk their duty are automatically condemned to burn in the hellfire. Not to mention, as well, that all non-conformers are also executed for apostasy and blasphemy per the dictates of Islam.

            Thus, again at the risk of being redundant, all mainstream orthodox Muslim in the world are jihadists in one form or another, either violent jihadists, as in ISIS, AQ, Hamas, Hezbollah, Al Shabaab, etc., etc., etc., ad nauseum, or otherwise non-violent jihadists, as in the millions of Muslims hat have migrated to America, for instance, for the nefarious purposes of mass Muslim infiltration of our society and for eventual demographic conquest.

            As a matter fact, non-violent jihad relative to violent jihad is astronomically far more prevalent, and as a result represents an exponentially far greater threat for the infidel world at large relative to all the violent jihadists in the world.

            Indeed, the Islamic totalitarian world in comparison to the infidel world is a complete and utter basket case and as such can never hope to ever defeat us via military force. However, via mass Muslim infiltration of our societies and via demographic conquest, the Islamic totalitarian world most certainly can defeat us.

            In fact, unless something very drastic happens in the near term, several Euroloon countries in Europe will become Muslim majority countries in the second half of this century via strategic demographic conquest that is a form of non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad.

            Indeed, Muslim immigrants to the infidel world never ever assimilate and integrate into infidel society, as that requires them to morph into becoming infidels, and in Islamic totalitarian society that is a capital offense.

            Thus, just like clockwork they first form Muslim enclaves that in time morph into Muslim no-go zones ruled by Sharia and that are in effect tiny Islamic statelets residing within the host infidel states. Their purpose is mass Muslim infiltration of our society and eventual demographic conquest.

            As a matter of fact, a few years ago the government of France counted in excess of 700 Muslim no-go zones in France alone.

            Thus, while you naively view all those Muslims living in the infidel west peacefully as being moderate Muslims exactly like all neocons. I view them instead for what they actually are: jihadists.

            Indeed, the jihadists that comprise ISIS and AQ aren’t any more or less radical than those millions of Muslims that have migrated here to America for the nefarious purposes of mass Muslim infiltration of our society and for eventual demographic conquest. As they both share the same exact goal: A world where Islam has been made supreme via the imposition of Sharia and where all infidels in the world have been subjugated into Islamic totalitarianism, i.e., harsh and debilitating dhimmitude.

            Thus, while you neocons are all obsessing, fulminating, and talking about terrorist havens, terrorist training camps, and about inevitable terrorist attacks launched against us from Iraq by ISIS if we don’t bomb them, I’m far more concerned about the much greater threat to us, and that is the threat that emanates from mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage, which is a form of non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad and which also represents an exponentially far greater threat for the infidel world at large relative to all the jihadists in the world combined.

    • uleaveuswithnoalternative

      Cogent analysis! I spent more than 20 years working throughout the Middles East and the Muslim idea of peace, is a world without the infidel.

      Muslims will enter into a truce in order to re-group and re-arm; when they decide that they have strengthened themselves sufficiently, the truce is ALWAYS broken.
      Until the world understands that Islam means submission and not peace, the world will continue to endure terrorism and war at the hands of these savages.

      Who are the heirs of the NAZIs??
      Which group of people strap bombs on their children and send them into pizzerias even though there is no shortage of adult men??
      Which group of people if you want to call them that celebrates when they mass murder Jews because they are Jews??

      Israel should carpet bomb Gaza and be done with it.
      I think God Israel has nukes because they live in a world full of Jew-hating dirt bags who delight more in murdering Jews than anything else.
      They should just drop one on Gaza.

    • Gee

      You sure like to lie – not one of your claims is remotely close to the truth

    A Palestinian journalist a year ago predicted Hamas would instigate war with Israel by using human shields as their main tactic. How right he was.
    Here’s the article.

    Palestinian Journalist Blames Hamas for Problems In Gaza
    “I feel even sorrier today for the people in Gaza as Hamas is pulling a publicity stunt with their blood.
    By Rachel Avraham
    June 30th, 2013

    Palestinian journalist Mudar Zahran claims the Hamas government in Gaza is corrupt, abuses its people and is to blame when Israel is forced to air-strike terrorist targets.

    Mudar Zahran, a Jordanian Palestinian political activist and writer who calls for peace with Israel, has emphasized that he believes Hamas is responsible for all qassam rockets fired into Israeli territory, even when the Palestinian Islamic Jihad or another group is the one taking responsibility. While noting that there are disagreements between the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas, especially in the wake of the present crisis in Syria, Zahran still believes that Hamas permits the Palestinian Islamic Jihad to wage attacks against Israel from Gazan territory for it is in their interest to do so.

    “Having a confrontation between Gaza and Israel is good business for Hamas, who makes a lot of money off of the deprivation of average people in Gaza. Hamas is to blame for every thing that happens in Gaza. They don’t care for the blood and humanity of their people,” Zahran claims. “Hamas is creating a situation where scarcity and poverty help make people submit. This is nightmarish. The only job Gazans can have is joining Hamas.”

    Yet at the same time, Zahran has emphasized that due to the rise of President Morsi in Egypt and the international political situation, it is better for Hamas if the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and not them, gets the credit for initiating the violence. According to Zahran, “Hamas is not about Islam any more but business and investment. It is a true dictatorship. It is willing to sell its own Islamist values for the sake of money if the right price is offered.”

    He continued, “People should realize that Hamas has changed. Hamas now wants interest, whenever they can find it. They will give in for whoever they are getting money. Hamas leaders now have a lot to lose if they are killed or attacked. They have houses, German cars, millions of dollars.” For this reason, Hamas gives the Palestinian Islamic Jihad the green light to operate against Israel, while refraining from taking actions on their own, so all Israeli retaliations will affect the Palestinian Islamic Jihad more than them, while the blockade works to distract the Palestinian people from Hamas’ oppression and to consolidate Hamas rule over Gaza.

    Zahran claimed, “I feel even sorrier today for the people in Gaza as Hamas is pulling a publicity stunt with their blood. Ultimately Gazans are paying the ultimate price for Hamas arrogance, ignorance and stupidity.” He continued, “Every year, Israelis should expect a couple of occasions where Hamas attacks, which shows how little value Hamas has for its own people when Israel counter-attacks. Even if I was an Islamist or pro-Hamas, it would be very stupid to send a rocket that rarely causes damage to receive F-16’s in return. They hide in the bunker and let their own people suffer.”

    Zahran concluded, “The world should do something to counter Hamas as it is just like al Qaeda, willing to butcher its own people. I cry for anyone hurt from my people but I take the blame on Hamas and Hamas only.” Zahran believes there is no military solution to the Gazan problem. He suggests empowering moderates in Gaza to overthrow Hamas by getting an outside entity to provide Gazans with jobs and the economic means to throw off the yoke of Hamas. He believes that should this happen, Hamas could be overthrown within a few years.

    Just carpet bomb GAZA.
    No ground invasion needed.
    And be prepared to tell the American and European diplomats and “news writers” to buzz off when they start screaming foul.

    “Shavua Tov” (Hebrew = “Have a Good Week”).
    The Sabbath ended here in Israel at approximately 8:30 pm, local time.
    I spoke to my son soon after, who informed me that a Hamas Representative was interviewed on TV, and was asked “You’ve fired hundreds of rockets at Israel, in the past week, and there have been no Israeli fatalities. What’s happened to your aim?”.
    To which the Hamas guy responds “Our aim is OK; their God moves the rockets.”
    If there is an Imam out there who knows this hamas guy – you have to tell him that he has just announced himself an apostate. Another God apart from Allah????? A God of the Jews???????
    Quick, call CAIR and let them know.

      How so, if you need to use Google translate please don’t hesitate.

      Your sympathy for the pali savages is very touching.

  • Gee

    It’s pretty bad when the PLO representative to the UN admits that the rockets are war crimes and that Israel is following international laws.

    Will wonders ever cease?

    The only mainstream news source I know of that is broadcasting the Israel – Hamas rocket exchange in the United States is Fox News. ABC and CBS are broadcasting video clips of the explosions in “Palestinian” towns but not in Israel towns; they show the dead and wounded children in their grieving parents’ arms in Gaza. What they don’t show are the explosions in Israel, except for once they showed the effective defenses of the Iron Dome system. They made a point out of saying that there are zero Israeli injuries and deaths, as if that’s somehow not sporting or something, taking “inequality” to new lows.

    They announced on ABC News’s This Week with George Stephanopulos today that Gazans living in Israel are crossing the border from Israel back into Gaza, after they detailed the horror of the Israel rocket attacks. So I asked myself “why would people go into Gaza, where it’s more dangerous, from Israel where it’s safer?” My conclusion: they know who is more likely to refrain from rocketing them, and if they go to Gaza, and Hamas stops, the Israelis will stop, thus highlighting the comment made some years ago that the equation is that if the Muslims stop blowing up Israelis the Israelis can be trusted not to blow them up in return, while if the Israelis stop blowing those people up, they are simply endorsing the destruction of Israel, and ordinary “Palestinians” know it to be true.

    Israel will never win a propaganda war. Facts are boring and “OMG I’ve seen soooo many pics of dead Palestinian children!!!!1!111 Zionist evil!!1!11″. You can try talking about human shields, giving links as proof, but they just don’t want to listen. Some of them are wicked enough to question deaths of Israeli teens, because “why haven’t they published some pictures of their bodies, hmm?! it’s suspicious!1!”. You may then try to very slowly explain that Israelis, unlike Arabs, are not that retarded to post such photos, it’s just inhumane and would cause their families a lot of unnecessary suffering. Plus, they don’t want to allow haters to use them in a sick way. They won’t listen.

    You just can’t win a rigged game.

    When you dumbazz inbred muslims don’t fire rockets, you don’t get bombed, it is a very simple concept that stupid muslims like you don’t get, and take the UN and so called international law and shove it where the sun don’t shine, while were at it Haji, GTF out of the west.
