Israeli Murdered by HAMAS Missile – Iron Dome Doesn’t Catch Them All

By Debbie Schlussel

As every mainstream media outlet–including FOX News–screams about the number of Palestinian casualties in a war HAMAS started long ago and won’t stop, I think to myself: well, Israel’s “crime” is that it is successful in stopping missiles that would have murdered 10-20 times more Jews than Palestinians. Apparently, to get the sympathy of the headlines, Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system has to fail and Israel needs to have deaths . . . and even that will never get the world’s sympathy. Well, Iron Dome is not perfect, and now an Israeli has been murdered by a HAMAS missile.

I just saw these tweets on Twitter from the IDF (Israel Defense Forces):


Say a prayer for the latest, tragic victim of HAMAS and Islamic terrorism, Of Blessed Memory.


There will, sadly, be many more because Israel won’t crush HAMAS once and for all. Hey, aren’t you glad Sharon gave the Palestinians Gaza, under pressure from George W. Bush?

This victim was a volunteer helping the soldiers. May G-d avenge his blood.

The best defense is a good offense. This means that merely having iron dome is a failure. They should not have to need it because there should be no Hamas (or Hezbullah, or the rest of them) capable of doing any harm.

The depraved Silvan Shalom ordered IEC workers at great risk to their lives to reconnect the power supply to Hamas.

G-d closed it again! But Israel refuses to heed Him and as a result Jews die because of their lack of faith in Him.

That Israeli did not have to be murdered had Israel had the guts to take on Hamas. It won’t do it and will continue to suffer for its sins.

    Norm, this man was delivering food to the Soldiers. We are NOT reconnecting the power grid. His death had nothing to do with anything but the enemy firing a mortar.

that person is a casualty of war, this is war, iron dome is far, far from a failure, Israel has fought defensively , till now, greater aerial punishment should ensue before the ground troops go in, which is what the hamas animals want a sthey are ready for a viet cong style, in their alleys fight. theyre just waiting to suck the israeli boys into their den which is well booby trapped and dangerous

The claim (Yedioth) I saw was that it was a mortar. Iron Dome does not defend against mortars.

“The depraved Silvan Shalom ordered IEC workers at great risk to their lives to reconnect the power supply to Hamas.”

What would Mr. Jefferson do?

Jefferson tells us that the tree of liberty must sometimes be watered with the blood of tyrants and patriots. This was because a government, however well constructed, would tend to become corrupt over time. He did indeed really mean that people should take the law into their own hands and start killing elites (e.g, judges who would “rule” that a farmer’s land is not his land). Thus we see that periodic vigilantism is actually required for a democratic republic to work.

We need more of this in the US. Israel, however, has NONE of it. Furthermore, Israel is not even a democratic republic because its “people’s chamber” (parliament) has members that are not directly elected from citizens of geographically defined constituencies. That’s one reason Israelis “never learn.”

Israelis don’t even do much non-violent direct action, except for the Left. So-called “settlers” (who are not in “settlements,” which are supposed to be heavily armed, but in suburbs that are neither armed nor self-sufficient) would be a natural source of resistance. That is why the Israeli elite stratum has a major objective of keeping the “settlers” endangered. These “settlers” believe that their bad joke of a government is “holy.” Their “rabbis” teach this and are funded by the same government that undermines Jewish life throughout Eretz Israel.

Incidentally, when I used to be a regular at Israel National News, I was continually denounced for saying such things.

    skzion, the Electric Corporation flatly denies that the electrical lines are being reconnected before the missiles stop and it was reported that another one was damaged tonight.

    Meira on July 15, 2014 at 3:58 pm

Well, my condolences are to that Israeli-national who was deliberately killed by a Hamas-terrorist rocket.

Debbie, you also mentioned why hasn’t Israel leveled and axed Hamas from society, I think I know the answer, and I don’t if I’m right or wrong in my analysis, the reason why I think Israel refuses to destroy Hamas for good is because more then likely, Israel has their own “Military Industrial Complex” like what we have here in the US (and I think all countries on earth have the MIC in their government?), and I think that the Knesset, President and PM of Israel are presumably being paid off by their MIC to not cleanse and rid of Hamas (and Hezbollah as well) from earth. At the end of the day, it’s all about corruption, and both ends, Israel’s government and the Palestinian government alike are complete dickheads and jackasses during their conflicts.

Sean R. on July 15, 2014 at 3:19 pm

“Apparently, to get the sympathy of the headlines, Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system has to fail and Israel needs to have deaths . . . ”

Yes, Debbie, there are some people here saying that we need to NOT send in ground troops so that none of our soldiers is harmed. I asked them this very question, “you need to see civilian Jewish blood and have a civilian body count?” The silence was deafening. These surgical strike have so distorted the public understanding of warfare, that and how the US has handled Iraq and Afghanistan and maybe even Viet Nam, that they can’t understand why we even have an army that is trained in combat on the ground and that tragic as it may be, it is a soldier’s job to go out there and provide safety for the civilian population. It’s not an army’s job to go fight someone else’s war. They are for the defense of the homeland but I think these kumbayah types would prefer to just play a video game in the sky and pretend it’s “surgical, precise, clean, and neat.” And on the subject of “innocent civilians,” such a creature does not exist in Gaza. I have any number of pictures of children being taught to hate, put on suicide belts and their mothers are there helping or enabling the brain washing so very young children and women are not exempt in this action just as the Amelekite women, children and animals were not exempt in Joshua’s day.

Meira on July 15, 2014 at 4:07 pm

    But Meira, why send in troops only to secure the land for Muslims? If the IDF insists on being ineffectual, why not be so from the air and with ground-launched missiles?

    Ultimately, the whole Israeli show is kinda boring. We all know that nothing will change until the residents of Israel change (meaning until there are no more Muslims living there). Not a single prominent politician or “rabbi” supports expelling the Bnei Amalek (Moooslims).

    skzion on July 15, 2014 at 4:31 pm

      skz, i’m not holding my breath but it was surprising to see Bibi back down and admit the Security Cabinet made a mistake this morning. Not in so many words but in the past, the MO was to ignore the breaches of the “cease fires” and say, “we’ll give them some time to get it together. We’ll ignore the violation of terms “this time.”” But of course then Hamas would claim victory and stop for a year or so. Today, as soon as they shot one rocket after 0900, our planes were in the air. And they still are. I don’t know what changed or why but for now, we’re still in the fight at least according to the terms you want. No one here is saying we should end it and a good many do want a ground operation, although others don’t understand the function of an army. I”m really tired. I got raked over the coals on a couple of other threads. One of the resident psychopaths actually accused me of suggesting a “final” train ride to Dr. Rosenberg when all I said is I would find train travel more enjoyable. Now it’s un-pc to suggest train rides to Jews, I guess. Funny, because we take trains all the time. Israel RR is great. Also my in-laws took their last vacation together doing the train tour from Vancouver to Calgary. They thought it was awesome and yes, they are Survivors. That was a sick implication, but to be accused of being a Hamas troll particularly under the circumstances is just cruel.
      See you tomorrow, maybe. B’H

      Meira on July 15, 2014 at 5:03 pm

        Meira, take a deep breath. (Debbie will handle the psychos.)

        “we’re still in the fight at least according to the terms you want.”

        No, I’m waiting to see a flood of Mooooslims from Gaza trying to get into Egypt. If there’s no flood, there’s no fight.

        skzion on July 15, 2014 at 7:32 pm

          Thanks, skz, I was really beat by the time I wrote that. I really got upset when I woke up to the “cease fire” news. I tend to handle crisis well but then melt down later so so when it was obvious it had failed (yay) I got that adrenal let down and was bad tempered all day. It was one of the roughest days yet but we had a siren at 9 and it was almost a relief. At least we hadn’t given up yet.

          Meira on July 16, 2014 at 5:09 am

“” And on the subject of “innocent civilians,” such a creature does not exist in Gaza.”

Nor is there such a thing as a “moderate” muslim. All muslims will stand with the Jihadists once they reach critical mass. No muslim will ever denounce their murderous death cult and those who might claim to now are merely performing taqqiya.

    When you idolise a Pagan killer,Jew killer,Christian killer,sadist,child molester,thief,liar and oath breaker
    can you honestly expect the mohammedans to behave in any other way –only if you are screwed up in your head

The Iron Dome system is short-term godsend but a long-term disaster (see http://edgar1981.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/iron-dome-and-deja-vu.html). The more Israel depends on purely defensive systems like this, the greater will be the frequency and scale of assaults from Gaza and elsewhere. As one of the commenters on the site said on a previous discussion about the Iron Dome:

“Back in mid-June, during the great Paris weapons show, the Rafael pavilion was absolutely the busiest around, and everybody wanted to look at the new, exciting, Iron Dome system, the greatest achievement in rocket defense ever. But by the end of the show, Rafael hadn’t made a single sale. The Arrow sold well, other systems did great – Iron Dome wasn’t moving. So they contacted their big clients, the serious ones, and asked what gives. And those clients told them no one except Israel has any use for these things. Because in any normal, sane country, if some hooligans were to start targeting civilians with rockets – the army would go and kill them.”

Edgar Davidson on July 16, 2014 at 5:27 am

First, Bibi changes the mission goal from destroying the Hamas military infrastructure to getting the missiles to stop – which means he has ceded control of the mission to Hamas, which can prolong or end the operation at their will.

Second, the thought that Bibi would send IDF boys in on the ground even as Israel provides its enemies with water, food, power and fuel, is beyond comprehension. Although I know a few active duty IDF soldiers, if my child were one of them, I would be furious if he was sent in to Gaza to fight an enemy that Israel was supplying with the essentials to attack the IDF.

And Sean’s comments about the MIC are just idiotic. The IDF uses plenty of resources even when not actively engaged in a large-scale operation, and a good chunk of material for the IDF is sourced outside Israel. The real issue keeping Israel from doing what it ought to in Gaza is the leadership failure to put its own citizens ahead of “world opinion” or the U.S. State Dept. The false assumption that Israel cannot survive without following the wishes of the U.S. hurts Israel more than any external threat. It is why the Arabs in Gaza and Lebanon still have the ability to launch missiles into Israel, and it why Iran will soon have deliverable nuclear weapons.

Israel needs real Jewish leaders who fear only God, not Obama or John Kerry. Then, and only then, will Israel fulfill its mission and fully safeguard its people.

    You’re right, Phillip but even Moses has a ground army while Israel had air cover. Remember when Moses lifted his arms we prevailed but when he dropped them we lost? You don’t think God could have sent lightening bolts down on Amalek if he wanted to? I guess I’ll have to wait to find out why he expects us to use armies but apparently, he does.

Add Canada to the ones who publicly défend Israël and condem Hamas

Soifranc on July 16, 2014 at 10:30 am

The only way this will stop is if Israel says Go to hell to the rest of the world and pushes every last Muslim out of Gaza and secures the border. I mean if a group of people bombed Ottawa would anyone say a thing if Harper declared war and pounded that group into dust? I think not.
Kill as many as you can. No defensive war in the history of the world has ever been successful. Kill your enemy without mercy. Every man woman and child that gets in the way of your objective is just a casualty of war. These bastards won’t stop so why should you. Show them the meaning of fear and then hit them some more. In order to win your leader must steel his heart and become as Vlad the Impaler if that is what it takes then that is what it takes.
