Speaking today during the Israeli Army’s “annual telethon” on Army Radio, military Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz pushed for a new invasion of the Gaza Strip saying that it was “not a matter of choice.”
Gantz went on to praise the 2008-09 invasion of the strip, which killed 1,417 Palestinians, the vast majority of them civilians, saying it was an “excellent operation that achieved deterrence.”
That “deterrence” however, Gantz saw as running out “over time,” even though its been less than three years since then and Israel has been bombing the strip regularly throughout that period. He insisted the timing of the new invasion would be dictated by conditions on the ground, and that the military would act “when the conditions are right.”
The comments come as Israeli officials are slamming the idea of the Hamas government in the Gaza Strip joining the Palestinian Liberation Organization, but it does not seem that there is any particular increase in tensions from the strip itself that Israeli diplomats could use to justify what Gantz promised would be a particularly “painful” incursion.

Most dangerous regime in the world Zionist regime of "province of Palestine" called Israel with yet anther treat of war of aggression and distruction….will this ever stop? Should we really believe that only Almighty can stop – destroy Satan? Is really WW3 on horizond for humanity due to neverending bloody arrogance of bunch of people who hijacked one of the oldest religion and turned it into "Brutal colonial ideology" Zionism? Could anybody with ability read believe that Almighty was some kind of Realestate Agent and serves in ongoing destruction to these people? New year comming yet old deception and horrors of wars also….
Gaza is like a weapons testing range for the Israelis. The fact that there are human targets is of little importance to these thugs and murderers.
“excellent operation that achieved deterrence.”'
Did anyone tell this filthy blood thirsty animal that Gaza is not part of Israel but part of Egypt take physically by the attacking Israel forced in the 1967 war of aggression. Maybe the world will remember who started this fight when they decided to steal a large amount of arab land. This guy sure a disgrace to those that want Israel to look like it is not a recreation of Animal Farm.
All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.
Wow. A couple of home-made rockets fall among some olive trees and the blood-thirsty IDF is ready to massacre another several thousand Palestinian civilians. These are the truly the Children of Satan.
What better way to quench their thirst for blood, invigorate their egos and show how tough they are than to blow the sh*t off a few thousand defenseless women and children?
The massacre has already started!
"Israel strikes Gaza Strip for second time in hours, IDF says"
Three killed, 10 wounded in two strikes on coastal enclave; Israeli army says strike thwart plans for major attack on Israel-Egypt border.
The new American century – Israel owns or belongs to America – of genocide. Marvelous job done people – with the help of the UN/US/UK – Israel is not held responsible for any kind of atrocities and thefts.
Just as reminder – Israel was founded in 1948 while 748.000 Palestinians were ethnic cleansed.
"He insisted the timing of the new invasion would be dictated by conditions on the ground, and that the military would act “when the conditions are right.”
And when the time comes, Israel will again roll out the BS that they were only acting in self defense.
What a sadistic piece of work.
