Speaking today at Soroka Hospital, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared that the PRC leaders slain in yesterday’s bombing attack on the Gaza city of Rafah were responsible for the Thursday attacks inside southern Israel. He also said they were “only the beginning.”
“We have a policy of extracting a very high price from anyone who causes us harm,” insisted Netanyahu, who thanked the military and Shin Bet for “wiping out the leaders” of the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC) in the attack. The PRC has denied responsibility for the attacks.
This leaves the question of what retaliation is possible, if, as Netanyahu put it, “those who gave the order to murder our citizens while hiding in Gaza are no longer among the living.” He gave no indication who else would be bombed.
Defense Minister Ehud Barak, however, hinted that it might be the Gaza Strip in general, commenting yesterday that “if there will be a need the strikes will intensify.” Since yesterday’s Gaza bombings a number of rockets have been fired from the strip, injuring six Israelis when one of them hit a religious school. Most of the rockets landed in empty fields.

In case there were any doubts. He will flatten Gaza and slaughter 1.5 million innocents before September like the world cheers.
Israelis are COWARDS They retaliate against innocent civilians, old people, women and children with the most modern lethal weapons such as F16's, unmannded drones and helicopters designed to be used aganst regular armies. He is just as much a war criminal as Saddam, Asad, Mubarak etc.
one day, the futur generations of Israelis will have to pay the price for what the present generation is doing to the Palestianians. The price may then be very very high. Arrogance has blinded Netanyahu and most of the Israeli public to such an extent, that they forget one thing. You reap as you sow.
looking back at the history of islam one sees nothing but murder, pillage and plunder. it will do this world a lot of good if such religions were banned so that everybody could coexist. And for something that is supposedly from God, many such ludicrous inconsistencies like the earth is flat and shaped like a rectangle exist.
Harvard President Derek Bok warned, “If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.”
Anyone who has even a modicum of knowledge with regard to the history of Islam knows your comment is patently absurd! The Islamic world was the center of civilization, science, mathematics, and culture during the Medieval Period. Western Civilization, which was a backwater prior to its encounter with Islamic Civilization, is built upon the great Islamic Civilization that proceeded it!
And Islam has, fundamentally, nothing to do with the Israel/Palestine conflict, obviously. This conflict is about theft of Palestinian land, whether Muslim or Christian Palestinian.
My statement is not absurd but its you who doesn't have the facts right. What do they call the civilizations before they are converted to islam ? Jahilya meaning animalistic(sort of). Ignorants talk about islam being peaceful and they refer to verses in the beginning in Mecca in support of their arguments. that was only in the beginning. Later when mohd. got more powerful things got way more exciting to put it politely.And as far as you making the Islamic world the centre of civilization, science and mathematics- those came from India. Do some research. Koran says that the sun sets in a puddle of water, female intellect is half that of a male.The punishment for apostasy is death Do you think this is the ideal breeding ground for intellectuals? I'm sure muslims do cogitate but the quality of their musings is the seed for another interesting discussion
Look, I dont have anything against the palestinians but Israel is every liberals fav. whipping
object. You think there will be peace while 1.6 Billion of the world population is stuck in the dark ages? Give it time, history will prove the Israelis right.
So….. those responsible are dead- brought to gunpoint justice- yet the attacks still continue against innocent civilians? Am I missing something or is there a serious disconnect from reality, morality, and ethics here?
HOWEVER…. this was not entirely unexpected; we knew there would be an incident, real or false-flag, that would serve as a trigger for anti-Palestine/Gaza military action ahead of the UN vote on the Palestinian issue. When it comes time for Israel to pay the piper for this, I hope it was worth it.
Oh joy, our USA tax dollars going for this…
The guy is evil and loves killing poor helpless people.
Israel is making the punishment for attacking Israel so harsh that their retaliation far outweighs any possible benefit that might be gained from the attack.
Under shari'a law, punishments for violations are so harsh that the fear of their being invoked far outweighs any possible benefit that might be gained from the crime.
Now, you anti-shari'a Israel-firsters out there are more than welcome to explain the difference between the two positions. You Tel Aviv cheerleaders are welcome to explain how continuing to send the IDF to bomb civilian homes presents any sort of justice, especially after Netanyahu has already admitted those responsible have already been killed.
Terrorism is a terrible thing, yes- and I am a Muslim who condemns those who employ it- but the deliberate murder of women and children by a nation's armed forces, and claiming that such murders are just and legal is just as evil, if not worse. Individual terrorism is a crime; state-sponsored terrorism is pure evil. Ask the former residents of the Warsaw Ghetto if they approved of the methods employed by Jurgen Stroop to exact payback for the actions of Jewish resistance fighters- the IDF is now acting the same way he did back in the day. It seems the student has become the master.
There are a couple of non-FCM reports that indicate that the Palestinians were not the perpetrators of the Sinai attacks. And Netanyahu has offered no proof either. What he offers is his word and as everyone knows, Bibi's word is golden. He would never lie…
Think about this for a moment. It looks like the Israelis are on a campaign to completely destabilize what government there is in the Palestinian Territories. That would not be a favorable condition when asking the UN members to recognize them as being stable enough to govern themselves, would it. Killing all those who are capable of leading, leaving only a rabble with no direction would likely guarantee a no vote from those voting – and provide the USG with an "excuse" for vetoing in the Security Council, which they really didn't have before – besides Bibi's orders, of course.
Seems the Netanyahu government put on a little show for the US congress-fools that are "visiting" Israel on AIPAC's dime. 81 US congress-fools that seem to find Israel far more important than the American people.
Cui bono? The short answer is NOT Gaza or Palestinians in general. The brutish Israeli insanity grows more hellish by the freaking minute.
Hamas did NOT attack the Israelis.
this has been beginning for years I guess a nuke is next as a preemptive strike. What a repulsive ball of snot the yahoo is.
The Israeli leaders have always been criminally insane. It is part of their job description. How many of the attacks on Israelis over the decades have been false flag operations? Eg: A busload of school children is blown up inside Israel and the Israeli airforce bombs refugee camps in Lebanon? Rockets are apparently launched from Gaza (doing little damage) and the Israelis invade and bomb the shit out of Gaza which has been besieged for years by Israel. How did the terrorists get out of Gaza to commit the latest atrocity? Are the Palestinians so dumb they don't know what the Israeli response will be?
Lets hope that Israel is getting in over its head. Egypt is armed to the teeth, as is Hezbollah. Someone teach this pariah state a brutal lesson, and now! I bet the world would welcome a smackdown on Israel.
I figured we would see more bombing in Gaza this summer. What is going on in the countries around the Mediterranean all seems to be connected. It is a build up to a major war…one that will be much worse than what has happened these last 10 years. The stock market is getting ready to tank again, this time bringing in even more unrest, more financial loss to working people, and more welfare handouts to the big banksters. These signs and those happening in Gaza, plus the Norway killings, UN and Palestine issue coming in September, all point to massive war preparations.
They are prepping the scenes and causing disarray before the major onslaught. I hope I'm wrong, but I don't think so.
Israel has a future —but only as a multi-ethnic, non-religious state, and as a state not named Israel either. Palestine (nee Israel) could be a boon for the Mid East, with a combined population of Jews with western training and industrious Arabs toughened by the experience of outrageous treatment by the Zionists. The only odd group out would be the Zionists – the exploiters and the racists. I guess it will be America's punishment to have to absorb them back. To leave the Zionists in place in Israel is to shake the dice in a game of nuclear Armageddon.
I seriously doubt that Israel has a future as a multi-ethnic state. Look at all the countries which are majority muslim, functioning democracy in any? Freedom of religion? Condition of women? And which Jew(if he/she had a choice) in his/her right mind would like to live in an Islamic country? That is tantamount to suicide. People in the western countries have a lot of misconceptions about islam, the far right christian fundamentalists frothing at the mouth at its mention don't offer much help either. It is an imperial doctrine, its health and well being depends on war and loot. When the muslims are an insignificant percentage of a country's population they are very peaceful. As their population increases so does their attitude. Just do a simple google search about the number of islamic countries and how many of them are democratic. If that doesn't open your eyes, nothing will. And anyone harboring fantasies of its peaceful nature I request you to study about the Sikhs.
you know nothing about the holy Qur’an and about the history of Islam. Jahilya means ignorance and not sort of animalistic. The holy Qur’an doesn’t say the sun sets in a puddle. Where did you get that from. Your knowledge about Islam is not even superficial, its zero. But then all you Trolls work with the same fabricated bunch of twisted facts. India was the center of civilization? Which civilization? The one based upon a discriminating caste system, the priests being from the upper cast and the untouchables the lowest. The tempels hoard riches offered by the poor. A widow had to burn herself alive with her dead husbands body. This is Jahliya. It’s not the 1.8 billion Muslims who are a barrier for world peace. it’s the few million chosen people, who have hijacked the western world, control the banks and mass media spreading hate and mistrust to advance their evil agenda.
Quran Sura’ Al-Kahf 18:86
“Until, when he reached the setting of the sun, he found it set in a spring of murky water: Near it he found a People." This English translation was taken from A. Yusuf Ali.
You are a liar. Please don't go around arguing on the basis of 'truth' when that which you are actually defending is your own inflated ego.Stagnant beliefs and unwillingness to explore the truth of it, and make corrections is the hallmark of dogmatic religions and beliefs.
India was the centre of civilization,which one? The one which gave this world mathematics, geometry, astronomy among other things. Do some research(not at the madrasa). And do read about all the Sanskrit books which were translated and kept at the Baghdad library. There is even poetry by pre-islamic arabian poets thanking the people of Hind for gifts of different kinds of knowledge.
How do you feel about 50+ years old man lusting over a six year old and then having intercourse with her when she was 9? Divine?
Quote of Kemal Ataturk from a 1927 speech about the fez, a traditional Muslim hat associated with the Ottomans.
"Gentlemen, it was necessary to abolish the fez, which sat on the heads of our nation as an emblem of ignorance, negligence, fanaticism and hatred of progress and civilization."
as for Israel, a country created by displacing it’s real people and stealing their land. With the argument, it’s our land, God promised it to us 3000 years ago. A promise from the dark ages. Knock knock, whose stuck in the dark ages hier. Apart from that, the Palestinians are fighting for their land, freedom and dignity and it’s irrevalant what religion the follow.
How is the situation in Pakistan? Well since it is 98% islamic I presume the zam zam of love is overflowing there. Talk about reaping what you sow.
"Knock knock, whose stuck in the dark ages hier."
You are and the sad part is that you don't even realize it.
Yossi shooshan, Yosef levi, Paskal avrahami, Moshe naftaly
Shulamit and Floora, and their husbands Dov Karlinskey and Moshe gez.
Those are the names of the 8 Israelis who's their life were stolen by murders while they were in a bus and a car on their way to a family vacation or home from the army.
Everything Israel had been doing so far was done to make sure it wont happen again !
Let me quete from The Covenant of the Hamas (the organization behind those attacks )
"There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors"
Jihad meanes armed struggle. For those how don’t know exactly what jihad means,
Imagine what your country would do to those who wouldn’t understand that they have no right to attack your country civilians and that your defence forces wouldn’t let them get away without punishment.
Israel's army has no intentions to perform attacks on innocent civilians and all the attacks were against the muster minds behind hames's Irrational attacks on Israeli innocent civilians!
And please, before you made up your minds about this subject go and check the facts and don’t relay only on what you may heard or think you know.
Stay strong my friend, the darkest night doesn't last forever.
The noble Qur’an can not be understood by any jahil cherrypicking certain passages without context to prove his point. This is a narration about Dhul Qarnain who went on a journey to a place where the sun sets, meaning the very end of civilization in the West; at that point, the sun appeared for him to be setting in a black-coloured body of water. It is most likely the ocean which is intended by this since its water appears to be black in most places and although the sun was not literally setting in the ocean, it appears as such when ones sight does not reach beyond the ocean. Next time check your facts before you cut and paste misinformation. Go take a dip in the gutter you call Ganga and maybe it will wash the hate out of you.
Of course 'the noble quran' cannot be understood by anyone who likes to make use of the faculties of logic and reason. That you term such people jahil (ignorant) showcases your own intellect, or lack thereof.. Truth will set you free my friend, not the incoherent ramblings of a medieval murderous pedophile. But to be fair, islam does seem to be gaining converts.

Yes that is the hallmark of a divine document. You have to spin it this way and that to avoid looking like a fool for believing this drivel. I don't care much about your sophistic arguments while I do care a lot for the rights and conditions of women and children.
yes you are a jahil, and a coward one at that. You are hiding behind the cover of “Guest” to spew lies and misinformation. You are trying to scratch a block of solid steel with your fingernails, and I don’t have to tell you that you are not making the slightest impression. There have been bigger hypocrites than you who tried before to bark at the sun, only to collapse because of exhaustion. I hope they pay you good enough for what you are doing. Or don’t tell me you take all this fruitless trouble for free? !!!!!! You care about the rights of woman and children? Care about the ones living in the openair prison of Gaza or those under the Occupation. What about the thousands of minors in Israeli prisons. Or the woman and children who die or lose Husbands, fathers, sons and brothers through NATO airstrikes or drone attacks. The children that are born and will be born deformed by NATO Uranium Ammo that is poisoning the enviourment. You don’t give a damm, so stop putting up a show of false sympathy, it just underlines your hypocracy. According to you they belong to the 1.6 billion animalistic low intellects I guss your not only ignorant your utterly a discriminating racist. You have to free your mind and accept the truth, we will prevail and you will have to live with that. So stop spitting at the sun over your head, it will all fall back on your face. Ishallah.
I am no afraid of the darkest night because my Lord has given me the light of my deen. It’s you who is in the dark and I do pity you, but then it’s your choice or maybe it’s not in your naseeb. Lakum deen a kum wa liya deen. You have your belief and me I have mine. That’s all I have to say to you. Salam
I guess I will wait until the sun is setting in a murky stream before I try to spit on it. And maybe I might catch a glimpse of the 'jinns' standing on top of each other to reach into heaven and overhear the conversations there. Block of solid steel? Quit with the rhetoric and talk sense.
As for your ranting you obviously are oblivious to the plight of women, in general, in islamic societies. No big surprises there.
I asked you to state one islamic country where people live happily. How many are there 58? 63? Sad state of affairs if you ask me. And then you have the gall to brand those opposing your views as ignorant. Typical fundie logic. But I guess thats okay since mohd himself asked his followers to cheat and it was ok with allah too. I am sure in the days of yore I would have paid with my head for my views but thankfully some parts of the world are not in the dark ages presently.
The world is not perfect but a lot of this misery can be avoided. I do not wish pain on any muslim but they have to break free from the shackles of islam and get rid of their persecution complex. Much of the quran is plagiarized from the jewish torah and christian bible, which in turn are plagiarized from ordinary stories in the Hindu scriptures. Ultimately it is your choice to either think freely or keep deluding yourself with this so called divine mumbo jumbo.
