Leaflets of Terror


The Israeli government is dropping leaflets warning residents of Gaza of impending attacks. The leaflets include:

Because of the terrorist actions carried by some terrorist figures out of the area of residence against the state of Israel, the IDF was forced to immediately respond and act inside your area of residence.

For your own safety you are required to leave the area immediately.


The leaflets go on to warn that any house "hiding weapons or ammunition" will be blown up.

Where are all of these people supposed to go? What are they supposed to do? The leaflets assert that those who fully cooperate with the IDF will not be harmed, but what does "fully cooperate" mean? The leaflets don't say.

Matters are worse.

In England, over a hundred thousand people were estimated to have taken part in the protest which started at Hyde Park Corner and ended at the gates to the road to the Israeli Embassy in Kensington.

Good question, where are they supposed to go?

I'm not surprised by the protest in England as their news is far less propagandized on this subject than ours is (in mainstream media.)

The Senate thinks all of this is just great.

How do they sleep at night?

The death toll now tops 800 and people are protesting all over the place.

Anon,
My prediction is that Israel will hold the death toll to somewhere between 1300 and 1500 so that it is on par with Lebanon 2006.

My reasoning is just simply that they know they can get away with that many based on recent past experience. And, of course, the unconditional and unquestioning support of the US government.

Glenn Greenwald has a very good piece on Salon.com, Both Parties Cheerlead Still More Loudly for Israel's War.

What else can be said?

It is long past time for this unquestioning and unconditional support for Israel to be put on the table and debated.

I hope you are well, one of my first commenters. Israel has a right to self-defense, period. Hamas fires missile from schools and apartment buildings. They won’t allow civilians to leave the danger area. Hamas wants Palistinian civilians killed so they can get our sympathy. Israel repeatedly warns cilvilians in the area through phone calls and dropping leaflets. Hamas has no excuses.

People must realize that this is not a border dispute. Islamic Fundamentalists want ALL Jews dead and gone. Period.

The delusional insanity of many on the Left and a few on the Right about this is frightening. They ignore all facts and logic. Hamas, a terrorist organization killing the so-called Palestinians' hope for peace, are evil garbage, they must be eliminated. They have sent thousands, yes thousands of missiles into Israel over the past couple of years and Israel had never exercised their right of self-defense, until recently, when Hamas broke the ceasefire and started firing rockets again.

Israel is FINALLY doing the right thing. If Hamas is destroyed, then, if the rest of the 'Palestinians' really want peace they can give up their dream of destroying Israel, if not, they will never have peace.

Israel must destroy as much of Hamas as possible before the MSM and the idiots and ignorants whine loud enough for them to stop. They must only quit when they are ready.

For EVERY missile shot into Israel at least ONE missile should be returned to the area as close as possible to the shooter. Tit for tat. Every single missile should be returned. Period. Treat them like adults, if they kill, they will be killed. If they send missiles, they will receive them. That is the only way they will learn. Screw public opinion, force them to see the truth, or let them be damned.

USpace,

Consider reading the earlier post here, David and Goliath.

No one here is advocating terrorism.

The bad blood goes back for such a long time the hatred runs deep, unfortunately. One side has to stop iniating missle attacks. Perhaps Israel needs to eliminate the border control inside Gaza during peace times. One wonders whether this will ever end over there or only escalate.

Bush was a self-serving, self-righteous ideologue who could do no wrong is his own eyes and would back Israel without question.

His simplistic right/wrong was worthless in the Middle East.

Obama at least has the chance to bring a more sophisticated frame of reference to the situation, and Hillary Clinton, regardless of what you think of her, is intelligent and pragmatic. Obama as President and Clinton as Secretary of State at least opens up some possibilities for viewing all of this from perspectives.

Time will tell.

It has crossed my mind that Israel is doing this last minute pounding while Bush is still in office, knowing that his pathetic administration is incapable of any response.

Sorry. I meant "more informed and enlightened perspectives."
