Hamas Israeli/Palestinian Conflict Palestinian terrorism


They’re firing grad rockets for crying out loud, discriminately, across the border and in the direction of Israeli civilian centers. That they haven’t managed to kill anyone owes more to their skill and happen chance than to anything else. These people are war criminals, yet Europe pours EU tax money into their coffers. Sick. KGS

Barak: Israel will not tolerate firing against its citizens

03/24/2011 17:18

12 rockets fired deep into Israel, no casualties reported; schools to remain closed in Ashdod, Kiryat Gat amid threat; Aharonovitch: We must stop war of attrition; Islamic Jihad warns against “continued aggression.”

Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Thursday that Israel will not tolerate firing against its citizens. Speaking at a joint press conference with US Defense Secretary Robert Gates in Tel Aviv, Barak said that the IDF knows what it needs to do and will work to make sure that there is not an escalation.

“Hamas is the only one that is responsible for these attacks,” the defense minister said.

At the same time that Barak was speaking, a rocket fired from Gaza landed in Sderot. No injuries were reported and no damage was caused.

  1. It is absolutely absurd how many rockets are fired in to Israel these days. Is Hamas provoking war?

    1. They’re just focusing the people’s attention in the desired direction. I don’t think that any Gazilian will say “enough is enough” and then demand and end to Hamas’ deliberate provocations. Besides, springtime is the traditional period of the year when the Arabs get restless and start something.

      1. lol @ Gazilian
        I totally agree with you. People in the West claim that the Gazilians (your funny word) are fed up with Hamas. Truth is that 2/3 (if not more) of the Gazilians still want to wipe Israel of the map. So no matter what, they will always, at least in someway, support organizations such as Hamas. But don’t you think that Iran is playing a dirty little game? While the West is focused on the Arab Nations, Iran is distracting them from their internal affairs and while Obama, Sarcozy and Cameron are bombing Lybia, they get to work on their nuclear system.
        Right now, I don’t feel that the world looks bright, Israel has to strike back in someway. But Obama won’t back them up. I believe that our leaders in Europe won’t either. So I am very concerned for Israel right now!
