With 123 rockets having been fired from Gaza today (and 61 IDF rockets in response)...



Israeli press reports:


Not exactly the de-escalation that's 'priced-in' to stocks?

Wrong Muslim.

We know who and what you stand for....

Only two types of Muslims, Devout and Infidels.

ALL devout Muslims are terrorists, their holy book the Koran commands them so.

They have no choice but to accept it or convert to Christianity.

By the way, heaven is not a brothel for the martyred.

Funny you should support the Anti-Christ.  I mean, can you get any more "ANTI" christ than the people who killed your christ?  Christians, dumb and delusional, yet sub-consciously, they all know the truth.  That's why they are not too worried about sinning on Saturday night.  That's why they poke fun at the "crazy" preacher at the street corner, or the "whacko" speaking in tongues.  Hypocrites...

Little off topic, but I noticed that Israel has no sanctions against Russia?  So Israel can still export food to Russia (16% of Israel ag exports went to Russia worth $226 million in 2012).  Interesting how the EU countries are getting boned, while the 51st US state is open for business.   Don't see much in the media about this.

It can't be illegal when there were never recognized borders but a rigged UN will always vote Arab so every day Israel breathes, it's illegal.  That's a very selective use of illegal slaughter but when you have no interest in history and only focus on Israel, well, you can always say Israel is wrong and evil and slaughtering illegally.  Don't let facts and history get in the way of your false premise.

Just an outisde the box thought... Alex Jones and others claim that Bengahzi was an Black Ops operation to arm Syrian Rebels. One of the most heated armament they were given/smuggled was Stingers - Surface to Airmissles. 

Now I know Hamas and ISIS are different but one has to think if someone traded/funded each one of these groups that those very same stingers are everywhere in the Middle East..... Do you see where I am going??

If someone shoots down a Jet with a stinger tomorrow like Hamas is threathening... Does that prove the CIA involvment in gun smuggling and starts to prove how twisted our current goverment is....

I saw this bit of news! Makes you wonder, I have heard over the years that Gaza fighters have been working to build a form of guided rocket, one that can be targeted to some degree. This might mean some are to be launched at the Air Port.

Or, since NATO liberated Libya, it is known that several hundred hand held anti aircraft missiles have gone missing. These are the exact same Russian infantry weapons that rebels have used to shoot down Ukrainian MIG-29 and 2 SU-25's just three days ago. At low or medium altitude, this missiles could down a Jet Liner with ease. Does the resistance have one or more missiles stored within range of the air port with agents ready to use them? I know they would want only to hit an Israeli plane, thus a warning to international airlines.

Or, like some said, could a false flag like the Ukrainian air force tried be in the works against a Jet Liner full of foreigners like Euopeans to turn Europe to israeli's side.

By the way, we are told that The United Kingdom will have Black Box information about the Malaysian Air Liner some time in Sept! Now, do you mean to tell me, it takes months to download Black Bix data!!!! Or does it take that long to fabricate a fake data stream to back up American and Kiev claims of a Russian missile? I ask you, When, if ever, do you remember a Black Box data needing months to access?

It’s not clear, tony, whether Israel helped set up Hamas but it is clear that Israel is delighted that Hamas is there because the Israelis needed a pretend enemy to keep from establishing the two-state solution. I.E., Likud’s excuse for war: You can’t negotiate a two-state solution with a terrorist organization. IOW, a military solution is necessary if you can't negotiate a political solution.

And that has been Israel’s position since 1947. Israel is the aggressor. The maps of Israel then and now tell the story.

If the so-called civilized world, backed by the Zionist superpower America, will not lift a finger to help the Palestinians being shot like fish in a barrel with the most sophisticated armament the world can produce, then Hamas  who speaks for the Palestinians can take on the world by forcing the closing of the Ben Gurion airport.

And if the massive Zionist propaganda sweeps even over the Internet where sites like Zero Hedge can only provide information on the struggle when it is provided by Israel or the US, someone, somewhere will provide the truth. From the beginning, Israel has provided the blow by blow of the Gaza struggle: always reporting who fired first, always identifying the elected government of Gaza as terrorists, always couching negotiations in the Zionist bias, and even in a ceasefire, still using troops on the ground to marshal the area and seek out tunnels.

The truth is, all through the years there's never been a ceasefire; Israel continues to kill, arrest and wound Palestinians on a weekly basis; that's what a police power over an occupied people does.

For those interested in the truth, here is another side today provided by Global Research.

Israel Resumes Assault on Gaza

By Bill Van Auken

Global Research, August 20, 2014

World Socialist Web Site

Israeli warplanes carried out dozens of strikes against targets in the Gaza Strip Tuesday, renewing the one-sided, more than month-long war.

In the latest round of air strikes, it was reported by the health ministry Tuesday night that a two-year-old child and a woman were killed and 25 others were wounded—most of them women and children—in the bombing of a home in Gaza’s Sheikh Radwan neighborhood. It was reported earlier that two young children were injured in one strike, and three adults in another.

Updated figures released by the Gaza Health Ministry revealed that the Palestinian death toll has climbed to over 2,020, including 543 children and 252 women. Israeli fatalities number 67, out of which 64 were soldiers invading the Palestinian territory.

Among the targets struck Tuesday night was Hamas’s Al Aqsa radio station, which went silent after the bombing.

Meanwhile, UNRWA, the United Nations agency in charge of relief for Palestinian refugees, reported that thousands of people were once again fleeing their homes to seek shelter from the renewed air raids in already overcrowded UN schools. At least 425,000 Gazans have been displaced by Israel’s wholesale destruction of residential neighborhoods.

The resumption of the bombing campaign came as talks in Cairo on a long-term cessation of hostilities ground to a halt in the face of Israeli intransigence. The government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu refused any concessions on core Palestinian demands for the lifting of the seven-year-old blockade that has turned Gaza into the world’s largest open-air prison, starved of essential resources and cut off from the outside world.

Israeli spokesmen said that the Israeli airstrikes came in response to the firing of a handful of rockets form Gaza that injured no one and caused no property damage. The Al Jazeera news network said it had confirmed that rockets had been fired from the Shujaiya district, a densely populated neighborhood that was reduced to rubble and was the scene of some of the most intense carnage during the Israeli invasion.

“In response to Hamas’s violation of the truce, the prime minister and defense minister have ordered the IDF [Israel Defense Forces] to once more attack terror sites in the Gaza Strip,” a government spokesman said.

Tel Aviv announced that the Israeli negotiating team has been ordered to return from Cairo. Palestinian sources said that Palestinian negotiators would leave the Egyptian capital Wednesday.

Later Tuesday night, a government official indicated that the Israeli government is preparing to resume all-out war against Gaza and its impoverished population of 1.8 million. “The IDF has been instructed to operate from the air in preparation for a ground operation,” he told the Israeli media.

Officials of Hamas, the Islamist movement which leads the Gaza government, however, said that they know nothing about any rocket attacks and suggested that the Israeli government had fabricated the incident in a bid to scuttle the talks and resume its attacks. None of the Palestinian factions in Gaza claimed responsibility for launching any rockets Tuesday.

The Obama administration swiftly voiced its support for Israel’s military actions. “Hamas has security responsibility for Gaza … Rocket fire came from Gaza,” declared State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf. She affirmed once again the incessantly repeated US support for “Israel’s right to defend itself.”

In response to the Israeli strikes, the Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, announced late Tuesday night that it had fired rockets at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion airport.

The renewed conflict came after both sides agreed Monday night to a 24-hour extension of an existing five-day ceasefire in response to a bid by the Egyptian regime of Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to continue the failing indirect talks between Palestinian and Israeli negotiators.

“The negotiations have faced difficulties because of the occupation’s [Israel’s] obstinacy, and the 24-hour [extension] came as a result of a request by mediators to have another chance,” Izzat al-Rishq, a senior Hamas official said. The organization’s spokesman, Sami Abu Zuhri said that Israel was merely “playing for time” in the talks.

The Israeli bargaining position reportedly included only an easing of the blockade of Gaza’s borders, which Israel would remain in a position to fully seal off again whenever it saw fit. Tel Aviv refused to discuss Palestinian demands for the opening of a seaport and the restoration of the Gaza airport, which the IDF destroyed during the second Intifada in 2001. As with the question of Palestinian political prisoners, the Israeli negotiators insisted that the discussion of these questions be put off to a later date.

“There has been no progress on any point,” Azzam al-Ahmed, the chief Palestinian negotiator in Cairo and a leading figure in West Bank Palestinian Administration’s ruling Fatah faction said shortly before the eruption of new fighting on Tuesday. “Matters have become more complicated.”

·         The complications apparently involved new Israeli demands for the demilitarization of Gaza, something that Tel Aviv has not been able to accomplish with its armed actions against the territory. The Fatah official may also have been referring to tensions between the Palestinian Administration and Hamas over the ceasefire deal.

The deal proposed by the Egyptian mediators would restore substantial power to the Palestinian Authority of President Mahmoud Abbas, who lost control of Gaza to Hamas in 2007. The Palestinian Authority’s security forces, which are US-trained and collaborate closely with Israel, would be placed in charge of the Gaza side of border crossings, while the PA would oversee reconstruction efforts in the territory.

The Netanyahu government appeared to be preparing for a resumption of the assault on Gaza even before the breakdown in the talks. Netanyahu declared Monday that the IDF was prepared to take “very aggressive action” if any rockets were fired from Gaza.

Similarly, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, speaking Monday night from an Israeli navy base in Ashdod, insisted that “Operation Protective Edge is not over,” adding, “As we promised, we will not stop until we bring quiet and security [to Israel].”

Ya’alon warned that “The IDF is prepared and ready to respond strongly to any development. Hamas will not drag us into a war of attrition and, if it tries, it will be struck very hard.”

Netanyahu and Ya’alon came under political fire last week over the Cairo talks from the extreme right-wing Zionist elements in the Israeli cabinet who have voiced support for continuing the Gaza war. Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, having obtained a draft agreement last week from Cairo, charged Netanyahu with attempting to keep its terms secret from the rest of his cabinet. On Friday, Netanyahu said he had not accepted the draft and disavowed its contents, affirming that it failed to meet Israel’s security demands.

How about admitting the truth that your quoted socialist web site is lying when it describes the 64 Israeli soldiers all dying as a result of invading Gaza when everyone here knows a good chunk died when Hamas invaded Israel thru the tunnels.   Oops.  Propoganda much?

I look for the truth wherever I can find it. And I am not going to kill the message because of the messenger. This is from Global Research and if you are not familiar with its daily postings I don’t know how you are surviving the torrent of lies we get from America’s State-sanctioned, Jewish-controlled, corporate media monopoly.

As far as invading Israel through the tunnels, it is Israel that is invading Gaza via Operation Protective Edge. The tunnels are one of the few means the Palestinians have of getting out  of their fenced-in concentration camp whereby if they get too close to the fence, Israeli women “Spot and Shoot” them with remote-controlled machine guns, mounted on watch-towers every few hundred meters along an electronic fence that surrounds Gaza. 

Oh, yes, how dare the Palestinains try to attack these Israeli soldiers who are killing and displacing their families via their bullets and bombs and bulldozers expanding into what’s left of their land.  Don’t these Palestinians realize that every one of those “defensive soldiers” is a valuable life compared to the thousands of “snakes” in Palestine getting in the way of Greater Israel’s expansion? Even Germany, to keep receiving its American backing, must recognize the value of the chosen:

German Newspaper Publishes Faces of Israeli Soldiers Killed in Gaza

Bild Zeitung Is Country's Most Widely Read Publication


Published August 12, 2014

Germany’s most widely read daily newspaper, Bild Zeitung, published the faces of the 64 Israeli soldiers killed in the current conflict in Gaza.

Together with short biographies of a few soldiers, the images appeared in the Monday edition of the paper under the headline “Israel’s War Against the Hamas Terrorists: Faces of the fallen.”

Among those profiled are Benaya Sarel, 26, who was about to marry; newlywed Liran Adir, 31; Eitan Barak, 20, the first Israeli soldier to die in Operation Protective Edge; and Matan Gotlib, 21, an avid mountain climber who was about to finish his three years of military service.

Gotlib’s brother Omer, 31, told Bild that Matan was planning to travel the world, as many young Israelis do after completing their service.

“Do you know any big brothers who look up to their little brothers? I admired you,” he said.

The report, by Anne-Christine Merholz, describes the soldiers as “64 sons, friends, husbands who will never return to their families. They died for their homeland, fighting Hamas in Gaza.”

Bild, which has a circulation of at least 3.5 million, is published by the Axel-Springer company, which has a strongly pro-Israel editorial stand. Its articles of association, which date back to 1967 and were most recently updated in 2001, include a commitment to promote reconciliation between Jews and non-Jews in Germany and to support Israel’s right to exist.

It would be a waste of time to try to search the newspapers of Europe for a list of the Palestinians killed. Too many? No. Too insignificant.

JR, not to tell you how to handle yo bizness, but why do you bother with guys like Frostfan, or the other completely unreasonable Ziopaths?  Do you think any fact, any argument, any source would change their mind?


It's essentially like arguing over the will of "god" with a theist.  Not only do they merely presuppose a Creator exists, they go further, and claim to know the specific will and commands of this being based on faith in a book.


It's batshit crazy - when enough people believe it, or it's sufficiently old - we simply don't call it crazy.  We're better off simply ignoring the pro-Israel chorus - it just leads to a pointless back and forth, versus information/link sharing between people who are anti-Zionist or, simply tired of Israel, its lobby, and aware of the bias caused by disproportionate Jewish influence in media and politics.  At some point, you have to understand that they will never stop claiming to be the ancient Hebrews who have both a right to make their fortunes in any country they please AND an exclusive right to dispossess an Arab farmer whose forebears were in or near Israel for generations.

And they will never, ever stop shouting Hitler Nazi Holocaust at you as a distractor when you point out just how Nazi-like the Zionist state is.


Take it in the spirit offered, man.


Rant over.

Thanks, Duffy. I get a lot of my information from the links and comments you provide (such as yesterday's…) and elsewhere. Debate seems a good way to make points with the information available, no matter who the commenter. I’m hoping others besides those commenting read the debate and, hopefullly, separate the facts from the chaff.

Some of what you wrote is true - except and this is the most important fact- that this is a Jihad- it is a religion and cultural war- not a land war- and this is your big mistake

I dont blame you because you live far away from the Middle East- you havent lived among Muslims and you dont know their culture and mentality

what i am surprised is that even  though you are aware of what is happening around Israel- the brutal massacre between Sunnis and Shites you still are focused in Israel

Are you aware that thousand of Christians have been murdered in Africa ? are you aware that hundred of thousand of muslims are being murdered each year by extremist groups?

Did you know that the  quality of life of the people

of   Gaza deteriorated because Sisi the leader of Egypt blocked the border and closed hundred of tunnels to Egypt? why did he do this- becasue the Hamas is the sister of the muslim Brotherhood- and they brought terror to Egypt. Did you know Hamas has no friends in the Arab World except of Turkey and Katar which support the Muslim brotherhood.


DId you know israel unilaterally withdrew from occupied Gaza? and still all we got is terror and rockets

Did you read Hams manifest- please read it and upload it here- it talks about the extermination and elimnation of the stae of Israel

What would you do if thousand of rockets were launched to your cities? Do we have to apologize becasue we have the Iron Dome? Do we have to aoplogize becasue we can defend ourselves? 

Israel is the only democracy in the Midlle East. 

i know this will sound rediculous to you - but the Idf doesnt targets deliberately innocent civilians

Did anyone blame the Us for killing thousand of innocent civilians in Afganistan and Iraq?

Did anyone blame Putin for killing 300 thousand Chechens?

The World is very hypocrite when it comes to Israel

Ofcourse the Palestinians in  Gaza deserve a better life ! but under the terror organization of Hamas it is impossible

I am proud of being an Israeli Jew

We are defending our homeland

We will allways be here !  and you will have to accept it!

Yes. The reason so few Israeli civilians are hurt or killed in these amateur rock attacks is that the rockets carry so little explosives (sometimes only 5 lbs.) and with elaborate warning systems the Israelis can go to the next room in their houses or to shelters to survive these relatively minor hits. The Israeli Defense Forces even admits that if you are in open territory when a rocket heads your way, you have an 80% chance of survival by just lying down on the ground, unless the rocket actually hits you.

Quite a contrast, isn’t it, with the huge explosive charges from USA-made missiles and jet airplanes blowing apart entire apartment blocks, schools, hospitals and power plants – not to mention people?

According to my sources (Palestininian and israeli)-about  the strike yesterday  - Israeli planes dropped 8 bombs on a house

number 1 2 and 3(Muhammed Deif ,his deputy and chief rocket engineer) in the  Hamas were eliminated. 

Deif  - is responsible for the death of 1200 israelis from 2000-2014

The Palestinians have reached a point where death is better than their current living conditions.  It is getting to be a similar situation in Ferguson.

The Palestinians must get agreement to end the occupation so they can fish more than 3 miles out, so they can receive goods in to feed and clothe their families, so that they can leave and come as free people.   Living under the current conditions are HOPELESS.   There is no point in living.

When you take everything away from people they have no fear of death anymore.  What's to fear?  Current conditons are as bad as death.

The leaders of western countries are going to find out pretty soon that they have pushed the majority to the edge.  They should have tempered their greed and power mongering.  It will be the end of them.

If Hamas starts shooting down Passenger Planes of other Countries flying in the Area, they'll have more than ISR's bombs to worry about. 

As it stands now, so much Infra has been damaged, Residents of Gaza (and the West Banks - take a quick look at all the "Approved/Disapproved" Settlements) will probably have to emigrate to Jordan (and make nice to the King), Egypt, or Lev'anon.

IMHO, this "Eviction" should have been done after the '67 or '71 Wars, when surrounding Countries were the aggressors; and Trans-Jordan had its problems with Jordan.

Iron Dome does not work. It is a hoax system to keep the people of Israel cowering in fear, grateful for their all protective government and supporting Bibi.  As with all things, the propaganda is more important than the reality  All governments lie to their citizens because it is cheaper (in the short term) than being honest.
