Hamas Announces It Is Now In "Open War" With Israel

Tyler Durden's picture





 

As expected, the escalation out of Gaza has been fast and furious with Al Arabiya reporting that the Hamas response to the operation that Israel has code named "Operation Pillar Of Cloud", which an IDF spokesperson has clarified Israel is ready to escalate into a ground operation into Gaza if needed, is that "Hamas is now in open war" with Israel. Moments later the organization Islamic Jihad has unsurprisingly, chimed in: "Israel has declared war on Gaza and they will bear the responsibility for the consequences." Stay tuned folks cause this may get very messy quickly. Now if only the US military wasn't currently the functional equivalent of a grotesque reality gong show.

A picture of Gaza:

Straight from the IDF, which may be engaged in live tweeting a war for the first time in history:

Some recent updates courtesy of Enduring America:

Israel/Palestine Describing Gaza as a "forward Iranian base", IDF spokesman Yoav Mordechai claims that Israel has struck 20 underground rocket launchers belonging to Hamas and Islamic Jihad in an airstrike.

Israel/Palestine. Islamic Jihad responds unsuprisingly strongly to Israel's attacks today. Reuters reports the organisation as saying:

Israel has declared war on Gaza and they will bear the responsibility for the consequences.

Israel/Syria. Earlier today, Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu toured the occupied Golan Heights region. The Jerusalem Post reports that Barak told journalists that nearly all of the Syrian villages along the Israeli border are in the hands of rebels. Barak added that the IDF was closely monitoring "the painful crumbling of the Assad regime".

Since Sunday, Israel has twice fired into Syria, claiming that it is responding to shells which have struck territory in the occupied Golan Heights. On Monday, the IDF claimed it had made "direct hits" on Syrian targets. Barak said today that the IDF is working to stop any Syrian fire crossing the border into Israel, "while making more wide-scale preparations for all developments". He continued:

It's very difficult to estimate what will be in Syria in the future, and we need to be alert and ready here, like in other areas.

We are determined to defend our land and our borders. We made that clear to the other side.

Israel-Palestine.. Citing Palestinian sources, Hareetz reports that Hamas military wing chief in Rafah, Raed al-Atar, has also been killed in IDF strike.

The Jerusalem Post also reports al-Atar's death, citing Israel Radio.

Israel-Palestine. Charlotte Alfred, a journalist working for Ma'an News, an independent Palestinian news organization, has sent me the following comment.

Multiple airstrikes are ongoing across the Gaza Strip. Ahmad al-Jabari is Hamas' most senior military leader. This is the most serious assassination of a Palestinian figure in years. Qassam [the military wing of Hamas] are furious. Just hours earlier [Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh] was expressing defiance that Israel's assassination threats will amount to nothing.

Rockets -- not much reported right now but they will come

There are already reports of rocket attacks against Israel - here are the last 3 updates from the IDF's own liveblog, though the last update was about an hour ago:

4:30 PM: A rocket fired from Gaza hits the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council.

6:00 AM: A rocket fired from Gaza hits southern Israel.

2:10 AM: In response to rocket fire from Gaza, the Israeli Air Force targeted a weapon storage facility in the central Gaza Strip, as well as two launching sites in the northern Gaza Strip.

Israel-Palestine. An Israel Defense Forces spokesman has put out s statement on the assassination of Hamas's head of military operations Ahmed Jabari in central Gaza. Yoav Mordechai said, "The first aim of this operation is to bring back quiet to southern Israel, and the second target is to strike at terror organizations."

Mordechai described Jabari as a man with "a lot of blood on his hands", as he raised the prospect of more operation. Over the past 48 hours, IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz reportedly approved a series of steps following border clashes and the exchanges of Israeli airstrikes and rocket fire from Gaza into southern Israel.

"All options are open," Mordechai said. "We are very determined to strike at terror organizations."

Ashkenazis (anti-Semites) killing Semites (Arabs). God said that the descendants of Abraham would inhabit the promised land. They did until a gang of European terrorists showed up. But the the name Israel does mean "he fights against God," so that was to be expected.

Skynet will keep us safe.

 

In April, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office received a Shadow Hawk drone through a Department of Homeland Security grant, at which time Chief Deputy Randy McDaniel indicated it would be put to use by its SWAT and narcotic departments.

 

The drone is equipped with an HC camera, capable of shooting video day and night, according to PBS. Now it seems McDaniel is looking to enhance the military-style Shadow Hawk, which can fly at heights of 15,000 feet while traveling up to 55 mph, with weapons now only given to sheriff’s deputies.

I'm tired of the middle east.

I don't care a twit about them anymore. Any of them: Isrealies, arabs, persians,kurds, turks, etc.

They've been slaying each other since they started to farm and have villages - 10,000 years, or so.  Centuries before moses or jesus or mohammed were invented.

Let them have at it.

Also, lets bring all the US troops in the area home. Their presence improves nothing. The minute they leave an area - BAM! - back to the stone age. Why waste the money?

And bring 'em all home from Korea, Okinawa, Germany, etc, too!  Also a Huge waste of money. Since the euros invite the wreched refuse of every teeming shore to move to their countries & collect welfare, anyway, they can guard their own border (or not).

The big giant reset bubble is gonna pop soon enough. 

When 650 TRILLION in notational derivatives worldwide start to unspool, NOBODY will care about middle eastern cannabalism or European borders

War in the middle east has always had 2 clear short term outcomes in the financial markets. 

1) bullish for crude oil (expecting supply disruptions)

2) bullish for US Treasuries (flight to safe haven assets)

The effect on the stock market is not so clear.  In the stock market, there are both winners and losers.  Clearly, the defense contractors and those who provide the things that usually get destroyed and need to be rebuilt, profit from conflict no matter where it is. But those people who are actually involved in the conflict tend to remove themselves from the consumer economy (temporarily) not to partake in "back to school shopping" and other normal consumer based activity. War puts a damper on some of this activity (not all...but some)

The clear short term winners in the stock market are the makers of destructive things...and the long term winners are the makers of rebuilding things. The stock market as a whole is more difficult to predict...the more direct trade is oil and defense contractors

Well the Zionists are historically communist.

 

A kibbutz (Hebrew: ??????? / ?????, lit. "gathering, clustering"; plural kibbutzim) is a collective community in Israel that was traditionally based on agriculture. Today, farming has been partly supplanted by other economic branches, including industrial plants and high-tech enterprises.[1] Kibbutzim began as utopian communities, a combination of socialism and Zionism. In recent decades, some kibbutzim have been privatized and changes have been made in the communal lifestyle. A member of a kibbutz is called a kibbutznik (Hebrew: ????????????)

Bully lobs rockets randomly into Nerd's yard. Yeah, it's the nerd's fault for kicking the bully's ass.

 

And the "nerd" only had to blow up innocent British, Arab and Jewish people in order to get title to "his" yard.

 

The King David Hotel bombing was an attack carried out on 22 July 1946 by the militant terrorist right-wing Zionist underground organization the Irgun on the British administrative headquarters for Palestine, which was housed in the King David Hotel in Jerusalem.[1][2][3] 91 people of various nationalities were killed and 46 were injured.[4]

How is this NOT a moonlanding to HAMAS?

BTW, I hope Krugman is right and the aliens invade.  I'll gladly go to them and point to the part of the map (Israel/Iran) where they can point the laser beams.

I think if you want the aliens to eliminate sources of evil, you may wish to point them to DC, NY, London and Brussels.

“For behold, in those days and at that time,
When I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem,
I will also gather all nations,
And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat;
And I will enter into judgment with them there
On account of My people, My heritage Israel,
Whom they have scattered among the nations;
They have also divided up My land.

“Behold, I will raise them
Out of the place to which you have sold them,
And will return your retaliation upon your own head.
I will sell your sons and your daughters
Into the hand of the people of Judah

Proclaim this among the nations:
“Prepare for war!
Wake up the mighty men,
Let all the men of war draw near,
Let them come up.
10 Beat your plowshares into swords
And your pruning hooks into spears;
Let the weak say, ‘I am strong.’”
11 Assemble and come, all you nations,
And gather together all around.
Cause Your mighty ones to go down there, O Lord.

not true.  Muslims revere Jesus.  Mohammed did not replace Jesus in Islam.  Mohammed simply warned people of the great evil that was taking control of the earth.  (not hard to spot if you think for two seconds).

that God, the creator of all, would chose one small and especially war like tribe of people from all of humanity, seems dubious at best...   more like a clever lie designed to get humans to do some dark nefarious bidding...  hey that sounds like someone familiar....

In 1928, Nan Britton published a book entitled "The President's Daughter" claiming that she and Harding had been lovers and had conceived a child in 1919. According to her, the affair continued for six years, and the lovers' meeting places included a coat closet in the executive offices of the White House. Historians generally agree she was indeed his lover.

uhht ohh. What if all the jihadis we put in Syria decide to go fight a jihad in Palestine with all the guns and money we provided. The question is what is more important to them - Assad or killing jews? And another - How fanatical and jihadi are they really? Or are they just opportunistic AL-CIA-DA mercenaries. Hillary Clinton loves them. (Maybe) She gives them money and guns and lets them gangbang her even though they don't bathe. Bill doesn't know.

Nonsense.  The pragmatists in Israel haven't yet convinced the majority that they need to exterminate the Palestinians.

That's what the long-running theater has been all about for the past 40 years--convincing the moderates that ethnic-cleansing/"final solution" is the only viable option.
