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.

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?

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.

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).

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.

"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.

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 V-2 rocket also known as the Claudia Rocket (German: Vergeltungswaffe 2, i.e. retaliation weapon 2), technical name Aggregat-4 (A4), was a short-range ballistic missile that was developed at the beginning of the Second World War in Germany, specifically targeted at London and later Antwerp. The liquid-propellant rocket was the world's first long-range[3] combat-ballistic missile[4] and first known human artifact to enter outer space.[5] It was the progenitor of all modern rockets,[6] including those used by the United States and Soviet Union's space programs. During the aftermath of World War II the American, Soviet and British governments all gained access to the V-2's technical designs as well as the actual German scientists responsible for creating the rockets, via Operation Paperclip, Operation Osoaviakhim and Operation Backfire respectively.[7]

The weapon was presented by Nazi propaganda as a retaliation for the bombers that attacked ever more German cities from 1942 until Germany surrendered.[8]

Beginning in September 1944, over 3,000 V-2s were launched as military rockets by the German Wehrmacht against Allied targets during the war, mostly London and later Antwerp and Liege. The attacks resulted in the death of an estimated 7,250 military personnel and civilians,[citation needed] while 12,000 forced labourers were killed producing the weapons.[

The rockets might be coming from the West bank or west Jerusalem... if that's so, Israel might send troops in Gaza AND the west bank.

This week-end, Turkey's PM is going to Egypt... and there's also an Arab league meeting on the situation.

Then on November 29 there's a UN vote on Palestine...

Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) can raise hell and wreak havoc with total impunity and negligible "collateral damage"; the under-siege, illegally blockaded, collectively punished-to-death inhabitants of the open-air prison known as Gaza.

Of course you won't find this explanation by reading the Murdoch press or watching CNN. Nor will you get any detailed explanation on the real timeline leading to what could be another war.

Morsi warns Israel will pay heavy price

Egyptian president sharpens his ton against Israel, threatening: 'If I see the homeland in danger, I won't hesitate to take unusual steps.' He vows that his country will 'stop this brutal aggression'

After concluding the Friday prayer at a mosque in Cairo, Morsi warned Israel of the consequences of its strikes in Gaza. According to the al- Shorouk newspaper, Morsi tweeted on his Twitter page: "We have the power to uproot the aggressiveness just like it uprooted exploitation.

"I don't want to take unusual steps," Morsi added, "but if I see that the homeland is in danger, I won't hesitate."

Morsi said earlier that "Gaza will not remain alone as it was," adding that the aggressors "know they will pay a heavy price is they continue their aggression."

Great so now I have to go out and buy gas because my stations will use the excuse to pump the price back to $4 again.

After the rocket attack the other day gas went from $3.39 to $3.79 and then dropped back to $3.39 again the next morning. Then it jumped to $3.59 later that day. I haven't been out yet to see what the price is today. Not to mention that last Sunday gas was $3.09.

I'm sure there is a real reason for $.70 price swings other than pure gouging, right?

Israel’s Real Agenda, according to Antiwar.com columnist Philip Giraldi, is not to” fight Iran or do anything to help stabilize Syria,” rather, “Benjamin Netanyahu intends to expand and solidify a Greater Israel,” forcing the remaining Palestinians “into ever contracting enclaves and hemmed in by Israeli force majeure on all sides.”

Here is an excerpt from Giraldi’s argument, posted yesterday:

I would argue that much of what the American public is seeing and hearing about Iran and Syria is a red herring. If the media is focused on developments in Syria and Iran it will be excusable not to pay any attention to what Israel is doing in its own backyard in what remains of Palestine. And Israel is most definitely up to its usual tricks on the West Bank. Benjamin Netanyahu has recently announced the building of 1,200 more housing units for Jews only in occupied East Jerusalem and on the West Bank. If the Palestinians seek permanent observer member-state status in the United Nations at the end of this month, there have been suggestions that Israel will retaliate by building even more new settlements. The Israeli media is reporting a senior government official’s assertion that “If the Palestinians go to the UN, we won’t continue to show the restraint that we’ve demonstrated in terms of settlement construction.”

Restraint? Benjamin Netanyahu has no desire to see any viable Palestinian state and he has exploited the United States as an enabler in his commission of war crimes to stall any progress in that direction. When Israel was created it managed to seize control of 78% of the historic Palestine leaving only 22% to the Palestinian inhabitants. That 22% has now been reduced to less than 10% remaining on the West Bank plus Gaza. Israel is intent on colonizing the more desirable parts of the West Bank, crowding the remaining Palestinians into a cluster of Bantustans that will be “self-governing” though without any of the attributes of sovereignty. The Arabs will not control their own water resources and airspace, will be hemmed in by Jews-only highways that they cannot use and military zones that they cannot enter, and will be prey to arbitrary action by the Israeli army to “protect” settlers and maintain security.

The Israelis appropriate Palestinian land as the wish to create new settlements and the rampaging settlers themselves destroy Palestinian farms and businesses so that the people will have no livelihood and will be forced to leave. All of the Israeli action is, of course, illegal in addition to being unconscionable as the Geneva Conventions consider it a war crime to seize and colonize land that has been occupied by military action. Israeli settlers on the West Bank have increased from 200,000 in 2000 and now number more than 350,000. They continue to increase, with settlements constituting 42% of the West Bank. If one adds in the 300,000 Jews living in Arab East Jerusalem and in the adjacent areas that have been illegally annexed to Israel proper, the total becomes 650,000 for Israeli Jews living in territories that were occupied in 1968. And there should be no confusion about the ultimate intentions of the Israeli government, which has secretly doubled its budget for settlement expansion. Hardliner Knesset member Yaakov Katz has predicted that “within four years,” there will be more than 1 million Jews living beyond the Green Line that once separated Jordan from Israel, and “then the revolution will be completed.”

Unfortunately, only the United States can influence the Israelis to rethink their destructive policies, which will ultimately also do grave damage to the American people, but there is no sign that any US politician has the courage to face the facts and do what is right.

You have to wonder how many Iron Dome missiles Israel has stashed away. They're using them up pretty fast, and now they're only shooting at missiles that are on track to hit something strategic. If their stocks start running low they're going to have to launch ground attacks in the South, which could be a signal for longer range missiles with CBW warheads to start flying from Syria in the North. IMO this isn't even close to over yet. I hope that civilians on all sides are prepared as best they can be. Damn all politicians.
