Since Iran funds Islamic Jihad and Hamas, and they are dedicated to continuing their jihad as a “holy religious obligation” until the last Israeli is “removed from the holy Palestinian land,” it should be obvious that Iran is already at war with Israel. A nuclear attack would just be a continuation of that war. And those at State who are hoping to negotiate with the Thug-In-Chief should remember that he is already at war with an American ally.
Of course, the situation is impossibly confused by the fact that Western states also fund the PA, and hence Hamas. The suicidal short-sightedness of this should be clear to them, but of course it isn’t.
Note also once again the complete abdication of responsibility: any future attacks will be revenge for Israel’s killing of three mujahedin. The fact that that was a defensive move following innumerable previous jihad attacks will never, ever be acknowledged by the mujahedin. They know how to manipulate the world media.
“Islamic Jihad Threatens More Katyushas and Suicide Bombers,” from Israel National News, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
Following the deaths of three Islamic Jihad terrorists in an IDF operation in Gaza early Tuesday morning, the group has vowed to fire Katyushas and send suicide bombers to blow up Israeli targets.
Shortly after the IDF successfully completed its first ground operation in Gaza since last August’s unilateral withdrawal, Islamic Jihad terrorists fired a Katyusha rocket in the direction of Ashkelon. The rocket missed its target, landing near Zikim without causing any damage or injuries.
The group issued a statement saying the Katyusha was in retaliation for Israel’s “acts of slaughter and occupation of Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank.”
The announcement threatened that Islamic Jihad would “continue its struggle against the occupation of the Zionist enemy until the last one is removed from the holy Palestinian land.”
A spokesman for the terrorist organization, using the name “Abu Ahmad,” told the Palestinian Authority”s news agency, Ma”an, that Israel’s “crime” of killing the three terrorists would be met with attacks “deep in the heart of Israel.”…
Thousands of enraged Arabs called for Israel’s destruction as they attended funerals for the three men. Abdullah Shami, a leader of the Islamic Jihad spoke at the funeral, promising eternal life for suicide bombers.
He said that Jihad or holy war against Israel was a “holy religious obligation that we will not abandon.” He declared, “We will not stop the struggle. We will not give up or sell our principles. The enemy will get whatever he is afraid of.”
