What Got Into Israel?

Hamas is surprised that Israel is fighting back. What, no more free rides? You mean they can’t just shoot rockets into Israel with no consequences? That’s not fair. Inhumane. Call the UN!

ArutzSheva Reports:

Hamas: We Didn’t Expect it
Two captured terrorists interviewed by Maariv/NRG say that Hamas was not expecting Israel’s response to the escalation in missile attacks on Israeli targets that preceded Operation Cast Lead. One of them, a 52-year-old victim of a premature detonation who had already done time in an Israeli jail, said, “Hamas took a gamble. We thought, at worst Israel will come and do something from the air – something superficial. They’ll come in and go out. We never thought that we would reach the point where fear will swallow the heart and the feet will want to flee. You [Israel] are fighting like you fought in ’48. What got into you all of a sudden?”

Israel & Gaza: Humanitarian Alert

Good point of view from Treppenwitz:

An open letter to…

… the Vatican which is now calling for an end to middle east violence…   

… the U.N. Secretary General who is suddenly “deeply alarmed by the bloodshed…”

… the U.S. Secretary of State who is demanding an immediate cease fire…

… the European Union that is calling for “an immediate end to hostilities…”

… the Russians who are asking for all sides to return to the negotiating table.

I have just one question for all of you: 

Where was your concern for human life when it was Israeli civilians being targeted all these years?! 

Oh, and to the French who are condemning Israel’s response to more than 10,000 rockets fired at her civilians as “disproportionate”… please just kiss my ass.  The only possible contribution you can offer to this conflict is to give the Arabs the benefit of your one expertise in warfare; Please teach them how to surrender.
