In other words, get ready for Israel to retaliate by stomping the jihadi scum into the dirt, then the liberal f*cktards, who love to bend over for islam, to denounce and accuse Israel of war crimes.

Fire from Gaza hits southern Israel; rocket lands near wedding hall in Netivot; 4 treated for shock; rocket alert system fails.

Talkbacks (22)  

The relative calm in the South was shattered on Monday night when Palestinians in Gaza fired a barrage of powerful Grad rockets and mortar shells at the western Negev.

One Grad-type rocket fired from Gaza smashed into the town of Ofakim and a second rocket slammed into Netivot, not far from a building where a wedding celebration was taking place

Four people were treated for shock from the attack on Netivot and a vehicle was damaged.

Wedding guests reported hearing a deafening explosion, and say that the Color Red rocket alert system failed to go off. The IDF Home Front Command said it would look into why alert was not activated.

No injuries or damage were reported in the attack on Ofakim.

Meanwhile, the Eshkol Regional Council reported a mortar attack originating from Gaza. The shell landed in an open area.

    Thanks to billions of American tax dollars and a hypocritical international community, Israel has high precision weapons to make sure it hits the triple digits every time it defends itself by shelling a school.

      Nevermind that Muslim fighters are using the school as an armory to store weapons and ammuntition, and as a firebase for mortars and missles aimed at Israeli villages and towns, not military targets, because they know they will get a propaganda bonus if the IDF does attack them in there? Schools work that way even better than mosques, don’t they? And both work better if there are human shields, especially women and children, in there with them. But then, all’s fair in love and war, eh? It’s working on you, it seems.

        Because they’ve done things that even Satan would cringe at, the Israelis have collected a few little talking points they regurgitate every time we remind them that their body count would have made most dictators cringe. The ‘human shield’ argument is 1) fallacious and 2) simply false
        1) Saying they ‘intended it’ means that Israel is somehow not killing people, but events are being orchestrated to make it look like a murderer. It’s a goddamn war, Israel is attacking not because it has to (Hamas has killed less people than car accidents) but because it feels it has a divine right to this soil based on their fairy-tales-for-serial-killers book. Israel kills anyone indiscriminately, thus the idea of a human shield is false. The IDF is a military force that has let old ladies die at checkpoints. Do you think they have the conscious to weep over some schoolchildren? They just consult their ancient book of brutality, the Old Testament, and voila, it’s okay with Yahweh the destroyer
        2) Read the reports. Many credible human rights reports have factually debunked the ‘human shield idea’. If you’re referring to the broad idea of endangering their people by fighting, then any war ever used civilians as human shields. Finally, look at the numbers. They do not suggest the casualties to be collateral, they suggest Israeli fighter pilots merrily dropping megatons worth of explosives, exterminating rather than killing

          What have they done that “even Satan would cringe at”? Give me one example. And what proof do you have that “human shield” is an argument, let alone fallacious and false? When is the last time Israel attacked, when it wasn’t attacked first? The number of Israelis killed by Hamas is not for a lack of trying, they’ve fired literally thousands of mortar rounds and missles at CIVILIAN targets, you have no answer for that. I don’t think it’s a fairy tale when history relates the conquest of Israel by the Romans, and the problems they had with Jewish rebellions, until they had to expell them from their own land in the diaspora. You can say the idea of a human shield is false, but that doesn’t make it so. Read the reports? You produce the reports! ‘Human rights reports”? I can guess the source for those. No, I mean deliberately taking cover behind men, women and children, often in their own homes, to shield themselves from enemy fire, and they have done it in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as Gaza. And if anyone has died at Israeli checkpoints, it’s been from suicide bombers, or other terrorist attacks, which target civilians. If you want to cite the Old Testament, try comparing it to the Quran, it would be interesting to see a score on which is more blood thirsty. On the other hand, Jahweh led his people to create a tiny kingdom in Israel, the Quran led Muslims to conquer most of the Mediterraean world and create an empire, which conquest was bloodier, do you think? There has always been civilian casualties in war, but rarely have fighters hid behind civilians. The civilians Muslims hide behind are usually their fellow Muslims, because they believe that anyone that dies in jihad, is guaranteed to go to paradise. And you say yourself that we provide Israel with “high precision weapons”. They use those weapons to keep civilian casualties as low as possible, despite what you think.

            “Give me one example”
            Bulldozing houses (and people often), White phosphorous, letting people die at checkpoints and often killing them and starving the children of Gaza (fucking baby’s milk isn’t a mortar)
            You mean like the King David bombing and the terrorist violence that created Israel, 1967, the Lavon affair, 82 Lebanon and Cast Lead?
            By that creepy one-eyed fuck Dayan’s own admission they used to send tractors out onto enemy land just to start shit. Don’t be naive, of course Israelis self-served and played the victim
            “they’ve fired literally thousands of mortar rounds and missles at CIVILIAN targets, you have no answer for that.”
            Blind fire with weapons much less destructive than an F-16′s payload and with a death toll in the low double digits
            Major groups such as amnesty international have debunked much of these claims. Unfortunately Israel uses the philosophical argument often. I.e. by fighting with us and refusing to acknowledge our supremacy, you endanger yourselves. First of all, that makes it sound like Israel is saying it’ll stop murdering children when people recognize it as a state. Hmmm, what’s the word for that?
            “If you want to cite the Old Testament, try comparing it to the Quran”
            Stoning for adultery and sodomy comes from the old testament, as does killing heathens, as does genital mutilation. Go to an old school Jewish neighborhood in Israel. See how friendly those fuckers are. These are people that condemn and rebuke secularism as a form of ‘self-hating’. And there’s 14 million jewish people versus 1.5 billion muslims. of course the jewish would lag in the murder rate
            “The civilians Muslims hide behind are usually their fellow Muslims, because they believe that anyone that dies in jihad, is guaranteed to go to paradise”
            This is part of perhaps my favorite Israeli delusion, namely that the people of Gaza fight not for any political ends, but really because Allah told them to. Not the siege of their land. It’s all just fundamentalism.

          What an incredibly dumb argument! Sadly, I have seen this argument before.

          Israel is the bad guy because they are killing more than they are losing? In war, is that not the idea?

          The US lost just over 40,000 men fighting Japan in the 1940′s. Japan lost MILLIONS. This makes us the bad guys? How about the fire bombings? Nuclear attacks on civilians? (By the way, my wife is Japanese)

          You said it yourself: “It’s a goddamn war”.

          NO SHIT!!

          Israeli forces are among the best trained units in the world. Atrocities occur in ALL wars. Their is a direct correlation between atrocities and the amount a training that a unit or soldiers have undergone. The more the training, the fewer the atrocities. Please, look it up.

          (Please note: My personal rule is to attack the position, not the person. Everyone can be wrong, as I am often enough reminded by my wife!)

    The IDF needs the practice anyway. The sooner Israel realizes that world opinion is absolutely nothing compared to keeping Israel alive and well in the midst of a sea of insanity, the better off Israel will be. A slaughter of all opposition, without mercy, is what is required in West Bank and Gaza. They need to hunt them down and EXECUTE them…period, dot, end of story. That would be a “pretty good” starting point. Then they need to trot out a couple nukes and polish them up in full view of the iranians…..to sort of….give them the idea. Maybe a “test” over Tehran would be good too.

    I honestly don’t have much to say for Israel, I’ve been to Gaza, and the West bank, and why I do not agree with the suicide bombers and crazed fanatics that have come out of there, I do understand them.

    Took me almost a day to cross into Israel from Gaza through the checkpoint, and I was on the fast line.
    Most are unemployed and lived off welfare from the UN and NATO.

    Yes, i do hate for the most part the religion, but they are still human, caged animals molded by Israel blockades and restrictions…. and then they are surprised when the animal bites them.

    • SirWilhelm

      You understand them? Could you please explain that?

      It’s the religion that drives them to be suicide bombers and crazed fanatics, and that’s why Israel has to try and cage them up like animals. Those animals have been biting them since Israel was formed, and actually they were biting the rest of the world long before that. Do you know about how they were stopped at Tours and Vienna? It seems like you are trying to seperate these humans from their religion? In Islam, that’s not really possible.
