NutAndYahoo’s stupidity makes Hama’s day.
And Iran’s and Hezbollah’s for that matter.

Weren’t Jews supposed to be smart?
At least that’s what they themselves always claim.

This is a rather creepy article -
Why would Hamas smile when they’re getting crushed, and the rockets they fire get intercepted by a new Israeli system that’s offeringh to revolutionize warfare?
Think how many US and NATO troops could have been saved had the Israeli geeks develop the Iron Dome years ago.

“As Israel bombed Palestinian militant targets in the Gaza Strip for a fifth day..”

No reuters they actually just bombed a journalist building… you would care about this if you weren’t just a US empire propaganda factory.

This is how reuters describes the worst crime against humanity in over a decade:

“That war ended with over 1,400 Palestinians in early graves and a territory scarred by bombing, shelling and invasion. Israel lost 13 lives in the lopsided battle, and Hamas licked its wounds.”

No…. Gaza was obliterated, it’s civillians massacred and Israel condemned for war crimes, which the US vetoed as usual.

Despicable reporting, a slap in the face to our humanity. These propaganda engineers are truely sinister…

Well, there’s 1.6 million Islamists that can be taken care of quickly. I hope they smile all the way to their Allah loving grave. The world is better off without their radical ways and constantly complaining. Good luck to Israel in their endeavor. They seem to be doing a pretty good job of beating the Qur’an outta them! hahaha!

I think Israel intends to use this conflict to their advantage. When they enter Gaza, they will find Iranian weaponry and will make a public outcry of it. Then they will engage Iran in an attempt to draw the US into the fray.

I am such a cynic.

@pendingapproval Two more bizarre quotes of yours:

“As Israel bombed Palestinian militant targets in the Gaza Strip for a fifth day..”

No reuters they actually just bombed a journalist building… you would care about this if you weren’t just a US empire propaganda factory.”

Notice how they used the word BOMBED here? You know, the word you always complain is never used by reuters to describe Israeli air strikes? This is the second time in 24 hours you have used a quote with the word in it and it won’t surprise me if you complain about its non existence in some later article.

And another one: “That war ended with over 1,400 Palestinians in early graves and a territory scarred by bombing, shelling and invasion. Israel lost 13 lives in the lopsided battle, and Hamas licked its wounds.”

No…. Gaza was obliterated, it’s civillians massacred and Israel condemned for war crimes, which the US vetoed as usual.”

What are you even arguing here? You’re essentially saying the same thing as what you have quoted, but omitting the statistics. You’ve become so wrapped up in your own propaganda you don’t even seem to realise when somebody is putting forward the same viewpoint as you.

And for the record, “blitz” is not some cuddly way of saying “bombing” as you seem to think. On the contrary, it generally means a very intense level of bombardment. When people refer to the London Blitz in WW2, I very much doubt they were trying to downplay the death and destruction caused by German bombers

WHY would the “Palestinians” cling to a worthless “sliver of land”? I can’t believe the world is so blind: Gaza was created by Nasser (3 governments ago, for those who choose to forget/don’t know/too young to know)as a diversion for Egypt’s economic and dictatorial issues. Oh, it worked so well… THINK: why wouldn’t Egypt open it’s arms to it’s brethren, ARABS(!) AKA Palestinians, and be done with the torment they started on all these people. NO, NO Arab country would embrace ANY Palestinians. Palestinians were created to foment a distraction from all Arab atrocities against each other. Think carefully about this…and draw your own conclusions.

Hamas is smiling because Israel started this and Israel is the bad guy this time, and they (Hamas) have thousands of RPG’s and IED’s, and they are waiting to kill a thousand Israelis and keep them at war for 10 years. It worked with the US which is more powerful than Israel, it will certainly work with Israel. If Israel goes into Gaza, they will lose a thousand troops or more.
I hope Nutandyahoo thinks his dirty trick fake truce was worth what has happened and is going to happen. And I hope Nutandyahoo’s war scheme is worth his maybe winning the election in two months, since was losing.
Israel is a good country, Nutanyahoo and his right wing war monger friends are the problem. Most Israelis want peace and good relations with Palestine, just as most Palestinians do.
No country in the world would sit back and let another country do to them what Israel has done to the Palestinians.
This thing between Israel and Palestine MUST END, and it must end peacefully.The world is turning against Israel. ENOUGH already.

Light a fire under their a** with napalm and see how fast that smile disappears.

Hamas is a death cult — they have no political interest or financial benefit from peace — without conflict and hate they cannot exist (similar to, but far more extreme than, the IDF).
Hamas ‘fighters’ hide behind their children and women — I pity the non-combatants of Gaza, living between the psychotic Islamists and the harsh Israeli army — but if men in my city dragged dead bodies behind their motorcycles down public streets, I would confront them and curse them, because otherwise I would have to endure a life of shame for not doing anything against such an atrocity.
Palestinians deserve national independence, and have lived under occupation too long, but it is their militant belligerence that prevents a diplomatic and political solution.
Israel is not going to cease to exist — it is not going anywhere — it will remain, it will also endure, and it is only childish naivety to think otherwise.
I am a left-leaning atheist from Australia, and if someone fired rockets towards my city I would expect them to be severely punished.
Oh … and by the way … which genius thought it was a good idea to launch a rocket towards the city that contains the temple on the mount ?
