You're more likely to be killed by lightning than Hamas rockets

Let me be VERY CLEAR about something:

I know very well the dangers of radical Islam, and am horrified by recent apparent rapid spread of it.

But this reaction is incomprehensible. It's like if your teenager talks back to you and you break his/her jaw.

Even worse in this case actually, because you are giving the Palestinians something to rally behind. You are giving them cause, you are legitimizing their claims of oppression and abuse, and you are creating martyrs.

Israel is simply pouring 200octane fuel on the fire.

did you see the one where the terrorist's failed to remove the suicide vest from one of their fallen jihadis during the funeral procession?...BOOM!


That is pure LOL for the internet ages.

So many aspiring jihadis nearby didn't get their 40 virgins, damn shame lol.

Yes lightning strikes all over the world, and Palestinian rockets are aimed only at Israel, but the point stands: In 13 years TWENTY-EIGHT deaths is barely 2 per year on average. I guarantee more than 2 people die each year in Israel from DUI's, shootings, car accidents or almost any conventional accidental cause of death.

No that is why the point doesn't stand .. and it shows your level of hatred that you know why the point doesn't stand and simply chose to lie.

No it's like your neighbor is constantly shooting at your house, the authorities do nothing, and you warn the residents of that house that you are going to take action if they don't stop him, the other people go out and buy him more bullets, and then you return fire killing him and end up hitting one of the people buying him bullets.

Sure the other people might be pissed you fired into their house, but maybe they should not have been buying him bullets cheering him on as he shot up your house. If Palestinians want peace they should stop supporting Hamas and stop supporting rocket attacks, and stop supporting the intended slaughter of Israeli citizens.

Speaking of probability (since that's the OP), there is an estimation of 100 lightning strikes per second worldwide, making it a staggering 80,000,000 lightning strikes per day around the world.

Considering these numbers, i'm sure that if you take the ratio of people killed per rockets vs. people killed per lightning strikes, you will get a much, much higher ratio of people getting killed by rocket attacks.

Once again, the comparison is just ridiculous, naive and obviously thoughtless.

False equivalency at best. You could have at least attempted to extrapolate the average lightning strikes in Israel to make your point....


I pointed that out in my own post.

I used lightning because it's something commonly compared to when discussing probability. As in, "you're more likely to be struck by lightning than be bitten by a shark"

I actually did try to look up the figures of lightning deaths in israel, but there was no information available.


Yet you steamed forward with your premise knowing it was comparing apples to rocks?

This thread is hateful.

Seems the op thinks that there is nothing wrong with firing rockets into a population centre.

I dont agree with Israels reaction too but your words are hateful and it saddens me that people on ATS say these things.

OMG!!!!

I dun know if the pro hamas anti-Israel posters here are Middle Eastern Islamic types or if they are far left or far right westerners with terminal recto-cranial inversion. either way; these pro hamas threads are some of the most appallingly stupid vacuous empty headed I. Q. destroying drivel i have ever had the misfortune of exposing my eyes to.

The poetic truth to your post was truly inspiring,
Rock on

Use [ ] brackets around the word QUOTE before the quotation, and then type /quote after it, also surrounded with [ ] brackets.

We disagree sometimes, but this is not one of them. I have all the same questions you just mentioned and more.

OP; You do understand that Isreal was getting suicide attacked daily until they closed the border down right?

Hey I know, there is a crazy guy right down the street from your house, he is homeless. Bring him into your home, and make him normal. I mean it isnt like he will kill your and your family in your sleep is it? Or will he?

That is right you dont know, because they are unbalanced, and capable of just about anything.

But yes, by all means, talk down on the people that tried it your way already, and had no choice but to wall these guys off to save lives on both sides.

Holy crap the Israeli shills are out in force tonight!!!!

You guys always have the same chants too, it's so obvious you all read from the same hymn sheet.

"Israel's not supposed to protect itself?!?!?!"

LOL same old drivel. If you say it enough times, does it become true???


3,000 Americans killed? Worst terror attack in history.

2,000 Gaza residents killed in "defense" operations? Oh, just Israel 'protecting' itself, nothing to see here.

You guys are PATHETIC.

It's too late for your non-sensical spin, the world has seen your real faces, and the whole world is turning on you.


The problem is your not making any sense. You say Hamas rockets are not killing enough people for Isreal do anything about it. What about the 1038 bombings and terror attacks against Israel? How many of the do they ignore before they close down every way in and out of gaza including the tunnels. 804 dead in suicide bombings in a 9 year span between 1999 and 2008, how many of those are allowed to happen before Israel should do anything?

Does Israel make things worse by building in the occupied territories? Of course that just provokes trouble. Are Israel crack downs after being attack to heavy? No doubt. However, after being invaded a half dozen times and having populations of people who do not even think you have the right to exist you tend stop giving a crap about being nice.

So you can toss words like shill and try and pretend that what is going on is some how black and white and that one side is so evil and the other so good all you want. That however fails to even begin to grasp what has been going on in that region for over a hundred years.

So OP doesn't get the usual hate filled anti-Isael drivel and it must be because we are all shills, not because the post is utter garbage.

so some people can justify rocket attacks on civilians because lightning kills people.

Is that right, am I understanding the logic properly.

There may come a time when some in Palestine will get their hands on weapons that are far more lethal and accurate, but for now, lets imagine Israel are just suffering a spot of bad weather.

Lucky most Israelis dont play golf as well
