Netanyahu: Be ready for prolonged Gaza war

obama-netanyahu2This could be Netanyahu’s response to the repeated calls from the Obama Administration for Israel to accept an “immediate” and “unconditional” ceasefire. Meanwhile, the propaganda jihad continues, as per the information below about the children being killed. The fact remains: Israel tries to avoid civilian casualties, and the “Palestinians” try to provoke them.

“Be ready for ‘prolonged’ Gaza war, Netanyahu says,” by Karin Laub and Tia Goldenberg, Associated Press, July 28, 2014:

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Signaling an escalation of Israel’s Gaza operation, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Israelis Monday to be ready for a “prolonged” war, and the military warned Palestinians in three large neighborhoods to leave their homes and head immediately for Gaza City.

The warnings came on a day of heavy Hamas-Israeli fighting in which nine children were killed by a strike on a Gaza park where they were playing, according to Palestinian health officials — a tragedy that each side blamed on the other.

Israeli tanks also resumed heavy shelling in border areas of Gaza, killing five people, including three children and a 70-year-old woman, and wounding 50 in the town of Jebaliya, which was among the areas warned to evacuate, the Red Crescent said.

Many Jebaliya residents said they did not dare attempt an escape. Sufian Abed Rabbo said his extended family of 17 had taken refuge under the stairway in their home.

“God help us. We have nothing to do but pray,” the 27-year-old told The Associated Press by phone. “I don’t know who left and who stayed, but in our street, we are all very scared to move.”

Later Monday, Israeli forces fired a large numbers of flares over Gaza City, turning the night sky a bright orange.

The latest bloodshed came despite mounting international calls for a cease-fire and followed failed attempts by both sides to agree to even a lull in fighting of several hours for the start of the three-day Muslim holiday of Eid el-Fitr that marks the end of Ramadan.

The Hamas-run health ministry said 10 people, including nine children under the age of 12, were killed and 46 wounded in the blast at a park in the Shati refugee camp on the outskirts of Gaza City.

Each side blamed the other.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, an Israeli military spokesman, said the explosion was caused when a rocket launched by Gaza militants misfired and landed in the park. Palestinian police and civil defense said an Israeli missile hit as children were playing on a swing set….

    Good for you, Bibi. You got gonads, the support of your people, and the support of grassroots Americans. Destroy HAMAS, their tunnels, their rockets, their arsenal–do us all a great favor.

  2. John C. Barile says

    Let Obama fume his choom; send Kerry on a diplomatic trip to the Infernal Regions.

  3. Wellington says

    Good. It needs to be a prolonged war. Israel must once and for all decimate Hamas. Destroy the bastards. The vast majority of America is with Israel here.

    As for Obama, Israel should completely ignore him. He is a menace to the very existence of Israel, only the amount of the menace being something that reasaonable minds can differ about.

    Wonder what Obama is gonna say to his muslim friends co-religonists and backers when he tells them that Israel says its not interested in doing what they want ??

    From the article -” Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, an Israeli military spokesman, said the explosion was caused when a rocket launched by Gaza militants misfired and landed in the park.

    “Palestinian police and civil defense said an Israeli missile hit as children were playing on a swing set….”.

    I believe the Israelis.

    Why? Because they come from a cultural gestalt that for over a millennium has pursued *truth in the inward parts*; that has taught the practice of self-reflection, of ‘owning up’ to wrongdoing, of truthtelling and covenant-keeping. Sure they have their fools and criminals and bad eggs; who doesn’t? ; they’re human-all-too-human.

    But their overall culture is oriented toward truth. In general, they are hampered – politically and diplomatically – by a downright refusal to tell lies.

    Whereas the Muslims are, through and through, People of the Lie. Every society that has ever been assailed by Muslims, every Infidel who has ever had longterm close-up dealings with Muslims whether as individuals or as “national” or tribal groups, has discovered, sooner or later, that **Muslims lie**, and that they are adept at every form of fraud, deceit, and downright malevolent BS known to man.

      Correction.

      Re the pursuit of truth by the House of Israel, it isn’t just “for over a millennium”.

      I should have said, “for millennia”.

    “God help us. We have nothing to do but pray,” the 27-year-old told The Associated Press by phone. “I don’t know who left and who stayed, but in our street, we are all very scared to move.”

    He didn’t dare tell anyone WHY they were “very scared to move”. The real reason would most likely be that Hamas has forbidden anyone to leave on pain of death.

    Netanyahu is learning what Putin knows for a long time: Obama’s America is a debeaked, declawed eagle.

  8. Thomas Wells says

    “We will gain the inevitable triumph-so help us God”. American president Franklin D. Roosevelt, Dec. 8th, 1941. It was nice when there was an American in the Oval Office. Israel if fortunate in having Netanyahu in office at this critical time.

    A couple thousand years ago, good old Jeremiah said a prayer that should be on the lips of every freedom lover in the world: “O LORD, SAVE THY PEOPLE, THE REMNANT OF ISRAEL”
