Hamas Escalates - Air Raid Sirens Over Jerusalem

Tyler Durden's picture

Markets have come to their senses a little and are selling off as news breaks of a plethora of concerning headlines from Israel:

  • *AIR RAID SIRENS HEARD OVER JERUSALEM
  • *HAMAS CLAIMS FIRED ROCKET TOWARD JERUSALEM AREA, CHANNEL 2 SAYS
  • *HAMAS CLAIMS IT HIT ISRAELI JET OVER GAZA STRIP
  • *HAMAS SAYS FIRED AT ISRAELI PARLIAMENT IN JERUSALEM
  • *FLASH: EXPLOSION HEARD IN JERUSALEM AREA: LOCAL MEDIA

Not good at all...

 

Via Sky News,

Air raid sirens are being sounded in Israel's capital Jerusalem, hours after a Palestinian rocket was fired at the country's largest city Tel Aviv.

 

Channel 10 reports that three rockets landed outside Jerusalem.

 

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said: "We believe it landed off the shores of Tel Aviv". No injuries were reported.

 

Sirens wailed across Israel's commercial and cultural capital on Friday afternoon shortly before a loud explosion was heard.

 

The Twitter account of al Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, said: "Al Qassam Brigades shelling Tel Aviv-Tel El Rabee with M75 homemade projectile."

 

A witness told AFP that the rocket landed some "some 200 metres (yards)" from the beachfront US embassy.

 

The attack sparked panic among beachgoers, although several people tried to swim out to the point where the rocket landed, the witness said.

 

It was the second day in a row that a rocket from Gaza had reached the Tel Aviv area in what Israeli networks said was the first time rockets had been fired at the city since the 1991 Gulf War, when it was hit by Iraqi Scud missiles.

 

On Thursday, another rocket fell in the sea and the other landed in a Tel Aviv suburb, causing no damage or casualties. Israel responded with airstrikes.

 

The latest rocket came as the Israeli air force continued a major bombing campaign across Gaza Strip.

 

Senior Israeli cabinet minister Moshe Yaalon warned that Israel was considering a ground operation in order to stamp out rocket fire.

Hamas is suicidal, they know Israel is itching to invade Gaza. The calculus just doesn't make sense. Keep firing unguided rockets hoping to slag a Jew or two so that they can claim to have justification to kill thousands of your own people? I'm not Sun Tzu but this does not appear to be a viable strategy.

neither is remaining quiet as your people are slowly starved and pushed into the sea as the prison walls push closer in day by day.

They seem to be letting rockets fly through Iron dome that have a chance of hitting the embasy...

When are these people in the Middle East going to grow up?

Humanity is doomed. Apparently we're all getting stupider so maybe they'll never grow up.

Hey Happy-Go-Fucky, ever heard of a "zionist"?  Yeah, there's a reason "these people in the Middle East" are always having to fight for their survival: fucking zionists.

I am Chumbawamba.

@redpill: Hell yea get an ally like Russia, China and/or India to step in just like how Israel has their big brother to step in.  But thats going to change since a lot more American's have a better sense of "minding their business" and the fact that America could be the world's energy exporter.

LawsofPhysics's picture

Look people, the laws of Nature and physics make no promises reagarding anyone's survival, they never have.  Don't get mad, it is what it is.  Invest in your own employees and neighbors, you will need each other shortly.

 

Bloody sheep.

If there is outrage about starvation, there is rather a lot of Arab brethren nearby receiving over $100 per barrel of what they sell that could fund food and living condition upgrade.

downwiththebanks's picture

Come on--give the region's despotic feudal overlords some slack.  It's hard to fund the alCIAda terror gangs in Syria AND support the Palestinian cause.

adr's picture

They don't get $100 a barrel. That is what someone pays for a contract. The Arabs have long standing contracts with the exchange that net them far less.

The Arabs wish they could sell directly to refiners everywhere like they do when they sell direct to China. You don't think China actually pays $100 a barrel for oil do you?

Seriously!? You know if they won't even help out their people living in their own country's slums there is no way that they are going to help out the Poor Palestinians - unless they need guns or rockest for the JOOS!

vast-dom's picture

yes but their gracious caring Muslim brothers could always take them in. they are neighbors after all. 

 

john39's picture

no because their muslim brothers should realize that Isreal's land grabs won't stop at Gaza or the West Bank. 

vast-dom's picture

Even if you were conversant with Edward Said's works on these matters, you could extrapolate that these poor souls are being used by all sides.

john39's picture

not by the only side that matters.

redpill's picture

Sorry but that's a bit much.  Their "muslim brothers" don't want to deal with 1.7 million refugees, and they would rather leave them there as a "thorn in the side of the Zionists."  The "leaders" of the muslim world doesn't want the Palestineans to go anywhere as long as Israel exists.

john39's picture

why should the Palestinians "go" anywhere?  to make room for zionism?  wtf, they had no part of WWII or the zionist wars with Germany...   its zionist propaganda that Muslims neighbors should have to take in the palestinians so that Israel can steal all the land (and water, beware Lebanon).

redpill's picture

I didn't say they should go anywhere, I was merely pointing out that your statement regarding the attitudes of the surrounding nations is absurd. Point is a lot of Gaza residents would happily pick up and leave if they had somewhere to go, but they are being used as pawns.

john39's picture

"residents would happily pick up and leave"....   beg to differ.  Clearly the Palestinians are fighting for their land and their heritage, including some of the most sacred sites in Islam, located in Palestinian East Jerusalem.  They will not simply leave, this is more zionist propaganda meant to remove focus on zionist Israel as the main source of the issues facing the region.

nonclaim's picture

If hamas had any regard for "his" people they would arm the whole population. But no, "the people" are viewed as sandbags and nothing more (see how may children "casualties").

Give'm all loaded guns and the whole hamas will be dead before sundown.

chumbawamba's picture

How many of you are still unaware that Israel nurtured the creation of Hamas in the 1980s?  Read the history.  It's all there for you to read.  Ignorance is a choice.

I am Chumbawamba.

nonclaim's picture

History is writen by the winners. Give'm guns and let the people choose their fate.

Conchy Joe's picture

Wow - so the Joos are responsible for all the lazy bastards and every one of their problems in that part of the world and still have to create their own arch enemies - man that's a lot of work...

redpill's picture

I don't disagree that action needs to be taken, but launching rockets at Israeli cities does not make you a symapthetic figure.

They are just backwards people. They want things to escalate so much that Jihadis all over the world start blowing things up and Iran gets involved.

I would not call them backwards, I mean, they have turned the desert into paradise and have taken over the strongest empire on earth as well as most modern media.

Some people say Hamas was set up to counter Arafat.

 

Looks like they are cousins of Muslim Brotherhood with their appearance as Muslim but backed by Arab proxies who are backed by banking cabals.

JOYFUL's picture

For those under the impression that the Hamas faction represents some kind of viable opposition on the part of those who the sionists are hammering into the ground, I am sorry to bring to your attention that it(Hamas) is nothing but yet another example of the Lurianic cabbalist\Leninist control the opposition by organizing it strategy.

The putative "free syrian army," the puppet forces fronting for ZATO in Libya, and any number of AlCIAda derivitatives which have infested the Asia continent  are all creatures of the Salafist oil sheikdoms in the pay of mossad and the usual agents of the moneypower.

The only real 'jihad' at work in this melange of front-front, false-flag, psy-op machinations so beloved to the satanic forces of usury banking is the jihad of central banking against any and all outcroppings of resistance to the hegemony of fiat money. Hamas is their creature, and will fall when they do. No rockets fly out of Gaza without the command of Tel Aviv.

That day is not so long off - the dawn of the gold dinar and similar authentic approaches to 'money' will soon dim the dark star of sionist satanism into oblivion.

The laws of Nature and physics make no promises regarding anyone's survival, period.  They never have, grow the fuck up.  Invest in your own employees and communities if you really care about making a real difference.  Just be sure to do it before they turn into these neighborhoods, because once they do, it's too fucking late.

Spastica Rex's picture

Oh, come on - now you're just sounding pathetic.

If you're going to be cavalier, you have to stick with it - no backtracking, no castigating, no pleading.

LawsofPhysics's picture

Who's backtracking?  The truth is what is dipshit.  Did you not see the title at the top of the website you decided to visit.

Here, let me remind you; "on a long enough timeline the survival rate for everyone drops to zero".

I can live with that. Now quit fucking whinning like a little girl and go be productive.

I've just produced a turd as long and thick as a kielbasa, I am very pleased with my productivity today.

Please you just showed yourself to be as greedy as the bankers that plague our system.  A lot of people are going to die and you are grateful because you will benefit thanks to your commodity portfolio.

Sounds like you need to get your lazy, crybaby ass over to Israel on the double Doc.  Put your money where your mouth is, otherwise, you are just as hypocritical as I.

Blah blah blah...go back to your mom's basement and keep crying about real consequences.

LOP has alternately said he has an approx. 20 ac. farm? and 30,000 ac. under cultivation? in his partnership/network?

None of it makes any sense.

I know some farmers.  Big and small.  They don't have the kind of time this guy pisses away to posting on ZH at all hours.

And he doesn't seem to understand the nitrogen cycle involved in this elegant system.

http://growingpower.org/aquaponics.htm

His creds as any kind of farmer are suspect.

Outside of some overblown sense of superiority and security and seemingly unlimited time to post to the internet, I don't see much going on with him.

Dr. Engali's picture

I agree. I find that people who address other people in the manner that he does are usually full of fertilizer. 

flattrader's picture

>>>Now quit fucking whinning like a little girl and go be productive.<<<

I don't see how they guy has time to produce anything since he never seems to leave the keyboard.

And for all his lecturing on forming relationships with neighbors and employees, in a SHTF situation, if he was my neighbor or co-worker, he'd be the first one to take a bullet.

It's hard to hide who you really are.

LawsofPhysics's picture

What you or I "believe" ro "think" is irrelevant.  And yes, you still need to feed the fish in your system, so unless you are feeding them the plant material (that you also claim to be eating) your "black box" still has very real inputs and outputs.

Remind me, how many people is your system feeding again?  BTW, my GMO plants are doing great, and yes, I have wasted enough time with idiots like you today.

flattrader's picture

Uh, that wasn't your original problem with understanding the system and obvioulsy you've not bothered to read any of the info at the site.

This guy won a McArthur Gemius Award.  Where's yours?

So, now your raising GMO crops?  You stated once they were organic.

Hmmm...

You need to keep better track of the lies you tell.  A spreadsheet might help.

>>>and yes, I have wasted enough time with idiots like you today.<<<

Yes. Go produce something...or at least go take out the trash for your Mom or your wife.
