Man, those Hamas folks weren't lying when they said they had improved their capability from the last time around. They actually managed to kill a dude this time.
So much for Iron Dome.. man, those Israeli's just make up anything to juice America for loot.

Hopefully this all spirals out of control, and there's massive amounts of chaos. There's been some kind of aliens or somethin chasing me around for like years now, and hopefully some massive amounts of chaos would do the trick and allow me to live normally.

More information

A Grad rocket directly struck a home in the southern city of Be'er Sheva on Saturday night, killing one person and seriously wounding four.

26 people are being treated for shock.

Another Grad rocket fired at Be'er Sheva was intercepted by the Iron Dome system.

Also on Saturday evening, two children were lightly wounded when four Grad rockets landed in Ofakim.

The Popular Resistance Committees claimed responsibility for the Be'er Sheva rocket attacks while Hamas claimed responsibility for the Ofakim rocket attacks.

Israel's "Forum of Eight" senior government ministers is expected to meet late Saturday night to weigh possible responses to the rocket attacks.

Rocket and mortar attacks took place throughout southern Israel on Saturday.

Overall, around 50 Qassam rockets, Grad missiles and mortar shells have been fired at southern Israel from the Gaza Strip since Thursday evening, wounding 16 people.

Early on Saturday, one person was lightly wounded by a rocket that landed in an open area near Be'er Sheva, while seven others received medical attention either for sustaining wounds while seeking shelter, or for shock.

Throughout the day, a number of rockets and mortar shells landed in the Eshkol and Sha'ar Hanegev regions.

Two rockets also fell in the Be'er Tuvia Regional Council, and another near the city of Ashkelon. No injuries or damage were reported.

On Saturday morning, several Grad rockets fired from the Gaza Strip hit the southern city of Ashdod, wounding three people.

Magen David Adom treated three young men for shrapnel wounds in their chests and necks.

Due to rocket fire, the IDF Homefront Command and local municipal authorities have cancelled public events, including concerts and soccer matches, throughout the south.

Surprise surprise. When you hide with your two vices alongside two year olds right after you executed a terrorist event in Israel or launched some rockets, you are probably going to have them killed.
Don't want children casualties? Stop hiding among them. Simple as that.

The thing this [person] doesnt comprehend, is Israel targets Hamas officials and militants.

Terrorists specifically target CIVILIANS - WIVES, CHILDREN.

Israel tries very hard to avoid civilian casualities. Do you think they can afford the press? Problem is, these pathetic backwards Islamists user cover families to hide themselves when they think Israel is gonna attack.

SO... Terrorists scumbags with no idea of morality, kill Israeli civilians, and this oaf is saying Israel has no right to respond. They should just take it, accept it, and get the # out of the middle east and back to Europe where the Germans just 65 years ago tried to exterminate them.

Thats essentially the rhetoric, and morality coming out of both Leftists and Islamists. Neither of them like the Jews, or Personal Liberty, or Capitalism. They work together because they can benefit from it. But they are completely at odds. Islam cannot be controlled. They are being vastly underestimated. People treat it as if it were like Christianity or Judaism, and it is not. It is a philosophy of being. From the spiritual to the political. Islam = Politics. When Islam isnt in political control, then theyre consider in a state of weakness. Only when Islam conquers and fullfills Allahs ultimate desire - to establish Islam the worldover, Islamists will NEVER stop.

Point being, there is no equivalance between Israels counter attacks and Hamas targeting of civilians.

Islam, as a matter of fact, considers anyone who supports a particular venture that is oppressing the Umma, as fair game. An american tax payer is held as much liable for whats going on in Iraq with the American occupation as a solider directly involved. The former is abetting the latter. They vote for senate and congress, and the congress makes decisions as representatives of the people.

Islamists literally have no scruples. They are as nihilistic in their approach to any political subject as Hilter or Stalin was. Anything that can be used to affect a logical end, can be used to achieve that end. Political assasinations - Bhutto was an example of that in Pakistan, same with Sadat in Egypt and of course all the sporadic terrorist attacks in Muslim countries against Muslims (who they disagree with) or Copts, or Kurds (this being a manifestation of the Arab imposition of Arab culture - language - on non Arabs) or Jews, or the many unfortunate Christians living in Muslim lands.

Israel is heavy handed in these events. More Israelis die of peanut allergies than are killed by terrorist activity. Why are they terrorists anyway because the Government of Israel will not let these people have a country of their own. One man gets killed and the army kills many in revenge attacks. That is the way is seems to work often in contention with international law...
Dang Israel is loosing its soul and the world is sick of the mess they are creating.. The world is begining to stand behind the Palestinians.
This madness must stop

Jan 2009 UN accuses Israel over phosphorus

The head of the UN aid agency in Gaza has accused the Israeli military of firing what was believed to be white phosphorus shells at its compound.

John Ging told the BBC that in spite of discussions with the Israeli liaison, "three rounds that emitted phosphorus" hit a corner of the Gaza City facility.

Israel's military said all weapons it used complied with international law.

Phosphorus shells are legal to use as a battlefield obscurant, but are banned from use where civilians may be harmed.......



Oct 2006 Israel admits using phosphorus bombs during war in Lebanon

Israel has acknowledged for the first time that it attacked Hezbollah targets during the second Lebanon war with phosphorus shells. White phosphorus causes very painful and often lethal chemical burns to those hit by it, and until recently Israel maintained that it only uses such bombs to mark targets or territory.

The announcement that the Israel Defense Forces had used phosphorus bombs in the war in Lebanon was made by Minister Jacob Edery, in charge of government-Knesset relations. He had been queried on the matter by MK Zahava Gal-On (Meretz-Yahad).....



Mar 2009 Report condemns Israel's phosphorus shell use in Gaza

JERUSALEM (CNN) -- The Israeli military's firing of white phosphorus shells over densely populated areas during the Gaza offensive "was indiscriminate and is evidence of war crimes," Human Rights Watch (HRW) said in a report on Wednesday.

Human Rights Watch says Israel used white phosphorus shells over populated areas in Gaza.

"In Gaza, the Israeli military didn't just use white phosphorus in open areas as a screen for its troops," said Fred Abrahams, a HRW senior emergencies researcher.

"It fired white phosphorus repeatedly over densely populated areas, even when its troops weren't in the area and safer smoke shells were available. As a result, civilians needlessly suffered and died."....

pretty cool.

the first vid even shows how concerned those citizens were.

they mad sure they stopped for every red light !!
!!

i wonder if those sirens were dubbed into the video ?

we need not forget who we are dealing with ......

the Media will go to great lengths to alter the true info and events !

yes sir, seeing IS believing


EDIT: and yes, the iron dome vid is cool too.

i wonder why the Islami Salamis don't get some bunker busters .. those are real bombs, not pip-squeek pea shooters. Israel needs a few too !!

do you know why Israel can't find those rockets on satellite ?
might help stop the shelling !! Gaza shows up real clear on sky pics.

Getting sick of this WP BS.
This IS white phosphorus, M110A 155 mm projectile



this is the M825A1. This is NOT a white phosphorus projectile.



once again, slowly this time:

this is white phosphorus
fuds.saj.usace.army.mil...

this is not:
conflicthealth.com...

see the difference?
You may argue that both projectile contain WP, yet each one is built completely different, different ingredients, and each one have a completely different use in war. One will badly harm you, the other will not.

Unfortunately for you, it isn't illegal to use WP in warfare against military targets.
But nice try trying to mix Gaza and Lebanon into one big potato salad.

Spent shells prove Israeli use of white phosphorus, Gaza doctors say


Remnants of an Israeli white phosphorus shell, identified by the marking on the outer casing — M825A1 — have been found in the village of Sheikh Ajilin in western Gaza.


Israel used white phosphorus in Gaza civilian areas


The Israeli army used white phosphorus, a weapon with a highly incendiary effect, in densely populated civilian residential areas of Gaza City, according to indisputable evidence found an Amnesty International fact-finding team which reached the area last Saturday.

So youre essentally providing no solution, no fairness or equality for Israel.

Your solution is, at the end of all this "israel is evil" rhetoric, is for the Jews to leave the Middle East, forget their ancient longings to return (and for an accurate understanding of the Jewish spirit here, learn something about Judaism) and go back to the land they were nearly exterminated in just 65+ years ago..

Or are you one of those who thinks the holocaust was made up too?? Apparently none of you know anything about orwellian tactics; double think, rewriting of history, past is erased, and the erasure forgotten...None of this strikes you as meaningful - and if it does, not to the tawdry and undoubtedly evil Jews....

The Palestinian identity is a FAKE, and made up identity, which didnt exist 60 years ago. It was invented, and so today it has some factuality, but as many palestinian and Arab politicans have admitted, the palestinian identity, in addition to the Jordanian, Syrian, and Lebanese identity, TAKES A BACK SEAT to Arab UNITY. It is a PAN ARAB Caliphate that that Arab world is seeking. Destroying Israel is a stage in the process, and infact something predicted by Islamic Eschatology.

Thus, the pan-arabists who dominate the middle east and north africa have created the moral EQUIVALENT of war. Instead of war itself, it has become a "war for equality". A modern day "apartheid", in which one people is being cast as the oppressed, and another as the oppressor. Yet if one understands anything about the history of this Arab-Israel conflict, they can undubtedly see that the Palestinin refugee problem was a creation of the Arab league. Something liberals for some INSANE reason have difficulty digesting. It upsets their tonic of moral idealism etc. Additionally, the apartheid in Africa was actually a genuine example of oppression and racism. Whats happenin g in Israel is SO FAR from that it is sickening that anyone could be so repulsively ignorant to believe it5. But alas, people are that obnoxiously ignorant, and indolent towards getting a balanced understanding of the issue.
