Good opportunity for False Flag breach, eh?

fxrxexexdxoxmx's picture

want to bet the massive call up to go only to the border and stop has more to do with a strike on Irans nuclear facilites than unguided rockets from gaza?'s picture

Less blood, cheaper oil. Great news.

So Israel WON'T break this cease fire... again?

Michael Scheuer breaks it down properly on how ME issues are all because of Israel and their control over the US gov't:

Netanyahu may be nutty but he knows that the anti-tank weapons that Hezbollah used to make smoldering coffins for jew Merkava tank crews in 2006 will be behind every wall if he invades Gaza so his bluff has been called and he blinked!

There have been warnings to Bibi for years that there's no rescue coming this time.  The strategic importance of Israel for the US military is basically gone, and the expense of the PR campaign (both financially and in terms of "political capital") has become too much to bear.

Things will change soon enough.  Either the Likudniks will drag the country into an unwinnable war, or they'll be forced to rein in their aggression a bit.  At LEAST they could try bringing the rhetoric in-line with Israeli public sentiment.

Some folks in Israel got the major smack down, you don't send 75,000 reservists home after calling them up unless you got the smackdown from outside.

Uh... NO. Hamas was about to cease to exist, this is why THEY blinked without getting the IDF naval blockade dropped as they were salivating over.

Apartheid Israel is lucky to have Hamas running the show in Gaza and the MB in Egypt:  were they faced with real Resistance, their rash and arrogent behavior would have far more dire consequences.

Instead, at the moment where the Zionist project--genocide and Apartheid from the Nile to the Sea--has begun to rot a cease fire is agreed.

Apartheid Israel was begging for the rockets to "Just stop," as they Tweeted the other day.

Yet another vicious attack on Gaza.  Yet another round of dead babies and grandmas in wheelchairs on the part of those brave warriors bombing from 25,000 feet.  Yet another FAILURE by the Zionist Apartheid government to quell the rocket fire.

That's 4 military defeats in a row going back to 2000.  Time for this hideous, cancerous blot to vanish.

Hamas blinked? You called up 75,000 reservists, then had to send them home without using them. You think Bibi sent them home because he got what he wanted? You've been smoking that Colorado dank again I see. Try some Hezbollah hash, maybe that will improve your clarity.

RT? Seriously? Russian state-run anti-US propaganda is not worth anyone's time, even to see Michael Scheuer...

john39's picture

yes, by all means the sheeple should stick to U.S. government approved 'information' sources such as CNN, MSNBC etc...  where you are sure to get the best propaganda money can buy.

Mad Cow's picture

You really think RT doesn't have an agenda? Don't be naive.

john39's picture

use discernment...  and yes, i find RT to be superior all around to U.S. MSM media.  not perfect, but superior.

Mad Cow's picture

I thought you were talking about propaganda, carry on then. Enjoy RT's "news."

Spirit Of Truth's picture

About the only decent "news" from RT is the live feed they have overlooking Gaza:

Of course, even that is for propaganda purposes:

Even so, in the last hour or so, flares were spotted over the perimeter of Gaza that seems to indicate an IDF ground operation might have begun:

There's been no news reports confirming this at present, but a heads up might be in order.

Apartheid Israel doesn't dare invade Gaza.

They know fully well they can't get south of Beit Lahiya without their entire weak-ass fucking army getting annihiliated by a PRISON COLONY!

<--- I'm going to pack a picnic lunch and sit on a hill when israel bombs YOU bitches.


in the works apparently.. this will of course force them to invert the lie that hamas is being emboldened by the muslim brotherhood (sunni) and blame iran (shiite). But obviously Satanyahu wants to bomb iran. After losing big on the US elections with his boyfriend of 35 years, increasing (proper) world disgust at Israel, failure to incite war with Iran yet, and disastrous economic conditions - he needs blood fast.


Who breaks the ceasefire first? The one who always does. Israel - the world's scariest rogue nuclear power.

Who breaches the ceasefire first?

The enemy, of course.

blunderdog's picture

Whew.  I'm so glad they can now return to PEACE.

centerline's picture

I was getting worried for a moment there that they wouldn't get along.  All is better now.  Love and hugs for everyone.

Gert_B_Frobe's picture

There was no attack at the US embassy. It was just a protest. Susan Rice to explain in a few. Carry on.

blunderdog's picture

Oh, right.  It was a Jewish guy--they're our allies.  It wasn't politically motivated either.  It would only have been an attack if it had been a Muzzie.

I love the smell of peace in the morning

That's the last time, I think There'll be some changes made.'s picture

Very nice. Here's Earl Scruggs performing at an antiwar protest in 1971. He's looking for some changes too.


Foggy Mountain!

I heard on NPR this morning that over 700 missles were launched into Israel from Gaza by Hamas BEFORE Israel started any retaliation.

500 to 1 odds that Hamas ends the "cease-fire" with some Hanukkah missile presents.

thanks for sharing the propaganda benni nuttyahoo.

he needs to get out more

Hugh_Jorgan's picture

ZHers need to get off the antisemitic "fairness in war" bandwagon, it's a loser...

DaveyJones's picture

"antisemitic "fairness in war" bandwagon"

those five words sum up your "logic" and objectivity

Careful now DJ, you're on the verge of having Godwin's Law invoked against you.

You are trying to sell a bridge to Harold Hardrada.

tickhound's picture

Personally, I've enjoyed watching zerohedgies play "Who's the Terrorist?"  Once the resident neocons start calling one another "socialist" - I'm hooked.

GoinFawr's picture

That's Mister Socialist to you, you statist you.

downwiththebanks's picture

AshkeNazi Jews aren't Semitic and Palestinians are.  The Beauty Part is most of the genocidal racists who defend Apartheid so fervently don't even know this!

The people who use the epithet "Anti-Semite" are invariably the TRUE anti-Semites!

ebworthen's picture

Yes, I'm certain those weren't rockets the loving Muslims shot into Israel, but rather bouquets of flowers.

What is all this insanity about the wonderful poor downtrodden peaceful Palestinians?

No doubt half-truths on both sides but the anti-semitic defense of missile shooters and suicide bombers is veering into tin-foil hat territory.

I don't think Israel should have been established, bad idea, but there it is.

Do you expect the Jews to allow the Muslims to kill them?  Erase them from the page of history?  Or whatever euphamism the Muslims use to mean "exterminate"?

It's war.  All is fair in love and war.  If you are basing your self-esteem on your bleeding heart for the Muslims you should go live with them and see how things go.
