IAF strikes 3 Gaza terror targets in response to rocket fire
The Israeli Air Force (IAF) responded to over 15 rockets fired on Israel from Gaza on Friday, launching attacks on terrorist targets inside Gaza. The IDF Spokesperson Lt. Colonel Peter Lerner confirmed that 3 targets had been struck in the south of the Gaza Strip.Â
In the case of the boys, the guilty party is also whoever brought the snake inside the house and allowed him freedom to move around undisturbed.
The problem began in the eighties, when the Coordinator of Activities in the Territories decided to encourage and fund “Almajama Alaslami” – The Islamic Center – despite warnings he received from Gaza that this was not a social welfare agency but a particularly violent sector of the Muslim Brotherhood. Towards the end of 1987, when the first Intifada broke out, the “Almajama” founders of Hamas encouraged the violence.
The guilt continues on to 1993 when President Bill Clinton pressured Israel to allow 415 leaders of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, all of whom had been banished to Lebanon after the kidnapping-murder of Border Police soldier Nissim Toledano, to return. (h/t Yenta Press)
Melanie Phillips:Â Crocodile tears over the cult of death
A barbaric and psychotic enemy killing Jews with impunity while an indifferent or hostile world looks the other way is the recurrent Jewish nightmare.Â When will they let us live, weep the Israelis, reeling from yet more slaughter.Â We are with you, soothes the world, as it lets the Jews once more swing in the wind.
This is wickedness piled upon evil. But in the center of this horror, the families of the murdered Israeli boys lit a flame in the darkness. Their strength of character, courage and undimmed faith moved us to tears because, even from the depths of their agony, they were affirming life itself. That’s what Jews have always done: In the face of persecution, torture and genocide they choose to live and not to die.
Ultimately that should be the weapon against this evil. Islamic fanatics threaten not just Israel but the free world. Israel can lead the common defense by doing the one thing the Islamic world fears most: reaching out in particular to Arab and Muslim women and young people, opening their eyes to truth and freedom and teaching them to love life rather than death.
Islamic fanatics do not fear death. They seek it out. We should be finding imaginative ways of doing what really will destroy them: using the weapons of the modernity they so deeply fear to subvert the cult of death that threatens us all.
A few Jews hold signs up on facebook saying they want revenge and an Arab boy gets killed by an unstable person, or maybe an honor killing by his own family because he was gay, we don’t know yet.Â Suddenly the Leftists are ready to pounce on their own people. I beckon you to go stand with your peace signs in an Arab village. Go to Gaza and speak of love and tolerance. You are cowards.Â You want to be humanitarians from the comfort of your safe streets. Perhaps it makes you feel better, but it’s not helping.
