IDF takes out Hamas terror boss

After months and months of escalating a rocket attacks on Israel by Hamas the Israelis have finally had enough.

…more than 700 have struck Israel since the beginning of the year, and more than 120 since Saturday – the IDF has launched a widespread campaign against terror targets in Gaza. The operation, called Pillar of Defense, has two main goals: to protect Israeli civilians and to cripple the terrorist infrastructure in Gaza.

Hamas has taken to televising and advertising their rocket attacks on Israel..little wonder then that the IDF took out Ahmad Jabari, the operational commander of Hamas’s armed wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades.

The IDFBlog has live updates of the ongoing operation: Pillar of Defense

    Perhaps if Israelis weren’t occupying Palestinian land the missiles being launched wouldn’t have landed in “Israel”.
    Until Israel returns to its borders any violence by Palestine should be treated as guerrilla warfare against an occupying force … once Israel is back in its borders any continued violence against it would be unjustifiable; and a response would be morally acceptable.

    • It isn’t Palestinian land…there is no such thing. Fakestinians have no claim to anything.

    • In Vino Veritas

      Jimbo, the land called Palestine has been Jordanian, Egyptian, Assyrian, Byzantine, Israel (830BC), Kingdom of Jerusalem (under the Crusaders) and many, many more. To call oneself Palestinian is a bit of a misnomer, since it didnt really exist, even in 1914 it was three seperate administrative districts of the Ottoman empire. After the British took it from the Ottomans (for siding with Germany in WW1) they allowed Jews into the essentially new state of Palestine.

        IVV is *correct*, Jimbo.

        The West Bank was *annexed* by Jordan (before 1967, IIRC) and no-one gave a toss.

        Gaza was annexed by Egypt – same result – no-one gave a toss.

        “Palestine” is NOT a country. Not now, and it never has been.

        It is as much a “country” as Siberia is.

        The so-called “Palestinians” are **Arabs**.

        They come from Saudi Arabia and are not related at all to the ancient Philistines (who were a sea-going people from around Crete and the Aegean islands).

        Check out this page – it has quotes from **Arab leaders themselves** saying that “Palestine” is a myth and a lie –

        “It is common knowledge that Palestine is nothing but southern Syria.”
        – Ahmed Shuqeiri, later the chairman of the PLO, to the UN Security Council

        “You do not represent Palestine as much as we do. Never forget this one point: There is no such thing as a Palestinian People, there is no Palestinian entity, there is only Syria. You are an integral part of the Syrian people, Palestine is an integral part of Syria. Therefore it is we, the Syrian authorities, who are the true representatives of the Palestinian people.”
        – Syrian President Hafez Assad to PLO leader Yassir Arafat.

        “The Oslo accords were a Trojan Horse; the strategic goal is the liberation of Palestine from the [Jordan] river to the [Mediterranean] sea”
        – Faysal Al-Husseini, Palestinian Authority Minister for Jerusalem Affairs, in his last interview, ‘Al-Arabi’ daily newspaper (Egypt), June 24, 2001

        “The people are in great need of a ‘myth’ to fill their consciousness and imagination….”
        – Musa Alami, 1948

        “Since 1948 it is we who demanded the return of the refugees… while it is we who made them leave…. We brought disaster upon … Arab refugees, by
        inviting them and bringing pressure to bear upon them to leave…. We have rendered them dispossessed…. We have accustomed them to
        begging…. We have participated in lowering their moral and social level…. Then we exploited them in executing crimes of murder, arson, and throwing bombs upon … men, women and children–all this in the service of political purposes….”
        – Khaled Al-Azm, Syria’s Prime Minister after the 1948 war

        “Since 1948 Arab leaders have approached the Palestine problem in an irresponsible manner…. they have used the Palestine people for selfish political purposes. This is ridiculous and, I could say, even
        – King Hussein of Jordan, 1960

          More accurately they are Palestinians are semites. Some Palestinians were orginally Jews who converted to Islam in order to keep their land. Islam and Judasim are fairly similar, the main bone of religious contention is land rights.

      “Until Israel returns to it’s borders”, oh dear Jimbo . According to Hamas, if they were to get their way, the borders will be such that Israels borders will be large enough to accommodate a pin in a map.

      • The pin would be somewhere on the blue part of the map, in the sea

    • Jimmie

      Hog wash. Hmm 1948-1967 what were Israel’s borders? Oh thats right the armistice lines of 1949. Didn’t stop terror attacks & guerrilla warfare carrying on did it now.

      And where were all the international comunitee? Well guess they were mostly silent or ear bashing the Israelis. What about the Arab nations? Spent all their time ranting on how they were going to drive the Jews into the sea.

      You don’t know what you’re talking about moron – piss off before you get fisked to death.

    • Hey Jimbo, just remember that those who you deem as “guerillas” are not trying to get Israel to “return to its borders”, as for them, Israel does not exist as a state, and the aim is to drive them into the sea. Hence a return to the 1967 borders would be about as good as a full and final settlement for a treaty know there will be more. Can you imagine how fruiful and fertile these lands could have been without all the waste of the constant wars and terror, a small land which could have incorporated those dispossessed by the events of 1948, were it not for the subsequent crap which happened. Somebody gave a history lesson, and mentioned “others”.Some of those “others” would have been the Roman and Greek Citizens of the Byzantine Empire, dispossessed of course by the Arabian followers of Mohammed,around some 1200 years ago, and I believe its the descendents of this wave who make up the Syrian -palestinian arab population. Its all a matter of where you draw the line in the sands of history, and I guess because many of the dispossesed are still living, its natural to feel some sympathy for their cause. But in the historical context, they are just one wave, and surely a sustainable future can only be achieved by accepting the status quo with respect to the establishment of the state of Israel, and working with that to create something eveybody could have lived with..unfortunately too late with all that has gone down, and continues to go down. But I totally agree with those who try and make out Palestine to be a nation state. I think that history will show that a state of Palestine never existed between 1918 and 1948, just a territory of the Ottoman Empire whereby Britain exercised control over one part, and France the other part

    Israel have really perfected propaganda for the mainstream western media.Only the U.S A Micronesia and the Marshall Is, support their program.

    • They need to because the MSM only prints the Fakestinian perspective….until now

      • blazer

        maybe the New Improved Truth can help fill the void….would attract plenty of friendly…’investors’.

        • thor42

          You forgot to mention, blazer, that the **Fakestinians** have perfected propaganda for the Western media.

          It even has a name – “Pallywood”.

          Here is a sample –

          • blazer

            I dont think you’ve done jew diligence on that thor.

  • Mark

    Israel does not occupy Gaza – they pulled out in 2005. Don’t fire rockets Palestinians and you won’t get smashed in return. Simple.

    • JimboBug

      Israel still occupy much of the country of Palestine. Were NZ occupied by Australia I would be happy to lob a few missiles into Sydney.

      • Mark

        But the rockets are being fired from unoccupied Gaza.

        • JimboBug


          Just because some of your land isn’t occupied doesn’t stop you from fighting for the land that is.

      • Travis Poulson

        There is no such thing as the country of Palestine, it does not exist.

        • JimboBug

          Just because the UN doesn’t recognise something doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. I don’t recognise the UN … but it still exists.

          • Jimbo, you are a fucking idiot. Isreal has put up with this shit for far too long. If you tease anything they will respond eventually.

          • 4077th

            Bob and Trav for shared president..

          • Bunswalla

            I don’t know enough about Bob to say either way, but Trav has my vote.

          • Travis Poulson

            Still doesn’t change the fact Palestine doesn’t exist. There are 2 Palestinian territories within Israel, West Bank and Gaza Strip. There is no Palestine. You can carp on all you like about recognition semantics, but it won’t change the fact it doesn’t exist.

            Next you’ll be telling me Tuhoe is a country.

            Just because one chooses to bury their head in the sand over something does not mean that reality matches what they think.

            Looks like we’ll have to agree to disagree.

          • JimboBug

            They believe that it is a country and most countries in the world recognise it as a country. Therefore to say it isn’t a country doesn’t help matters at all as it ignores the reason for the Palestinian hatred of Israel and so allows violence by Israel to appear justified.
            If most people recognised Tuhoe as a country, including the residents then yes, it would be one too.

          • Travis Poulson

            Well I believe my address is a country too.

            See my point?

  • And the Muslim Brotherhood is already bleating about Isreal’s retaliations to constantly being attacked as “crime that requires a quick Arab and international response to stem these massacres against the besieged Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip.”

    If you don’t want the IDF to take out your leaders then stop firing rockets into the Isreali civilian population!

    I read a report, the one suburb in Isreal has had over 2000 rockets hit it since 2009, including over 100 in the last week.
    These people have 15 seconds from when the IDF picks up the rocket on radar to when it hits.

  • Alloytoo

    Why do these idiots persist in poking a bear with a stick?

  • Changeiscoming

    I always find it interesting that I have not heard once in the media about the 700 rocket attacks since the begining of the year but when Israel so much as farts towards Gaza it is headline news around the world.

  • Hang him

    good shit, I hope the IDF keep it going

  • Mitch82

    His mum must be proud. Terrorists kids, they blow up so fast…

  • sandynobb

    Excellent. Now get Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Ahmadinejad, and their stooges Ahmadinejad and Assad. Whilst they’re in the khazi.
