FINALLY: After Non-Stop HAMAS Rocket Attacks & Murders, Israel Strikes Gaza

By Debbie Schlussel

You know my feelings on this.  They haven’t wavered over the years.  Israel should flatten Gaza if they truly want to defeat HAMAS, once and for all.  The repeated temporary air strikes and semi-incursions into Gaza never stop the HAMASniks and only strengthen their resolve.  It’s like shaving stubble.  It’s gonna grow back.



Something has to be done about the constant Kassam rocket attacks, the kidnapping of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, and the recent murder of two Israeli soldiers near the border, not to mention the recent murder of a Thai man in Israel  by one of Gaza’s Kassams.

Still, can’t say I don’t like these latest fireworks, tonight, by Israel–finally, meekly striking back.  The pictures are things of beauty.

Israeli warplanes carried out at least five missile attacks on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip overnight Friday, Palestinian witnesses said. . . .

Witnesses said four of the air strikes took place near the central town of Khan Younis, the site of a deadly clash last week between Israeli troops and Palestinian gunmen. The fifth air strike rocked Gaza City.

Major Eliraz Peretz, deputy commander of the Golani Brigade’s 12th Battalion and resident of the settlement of Eli, and Staff-Sergeant Ilan Sviatkovsky of Rishon Lezion were killed in that incident.

Following the clash a senior IDF official said the army would retaliate “at the appropriate time.”

Retaliation . . . best served cold and kosher for Passover.

According to the Palestinian witnesses, one of the target’s of Friday’s assault was a group of armed lookouts near Beit Lahiya, located in the northern part of Gaza.

Another strike, they said, targeted a factory in Gaza City’s Sabra neighborhood. In addition, a number of missiles were fired towards open areas in the Khan Younis area, the Palestinians reported.

It’s a start.

Israeli warplanes also targeted a metal workshop in central Gaza, they said.

Hey, a new euphemism for bomb factory: “metal workshop.” Very creative.

According to the Palestinians, at least one missile was fired at a Hamas naval police outpost in Rafah.

So sad, too bad. And here’s why it’s necessary to flatten these guys:

Thursday evening saw a Qassam launched from northern Gaza explode in an open area within the Ashkelon Beach Regional Council’s limits.

It never ends when your neighbors are jihadists, whom you gave a good part of your country’s beachfront property. Always comes back to bite ya in the butt.

Good post….good story…its been quiet too long…the gluttons for punishment have missed being battered..yeah, sure, they want a peace…time to pick a fight and get our asses kicked…..what idiots…feel bad for the moderates

to paraphrase Robert Duval, “I love the smell of burning muslims in the morning”.
You go Israel!

Davida on April 1, 2010 at 7:46 pm

The Israeli’s should take a page from General Sherman’s 1864 “March to the Sea Campaign” in Georgia.

ebayer on April 1, 2010 at 8:11 pm

Debbie, I’ve always felt Israel should have done to Gaza what Sir Authur “The Bomber” Harris did to Dresden. He had the RAF flatten the city. It sent the Germans a message that their terror bombing of English cities was justly avenged. Its the ultimate deterrence. If Hamas can’t rebuild for years, they’ll think twice about attacking Israel again.

The only problem is the Stupid Jews in Israel who are more concerned with world opinion and a too sensitive regard for the enemy to do it. Overwhelming force applied once gets the job done. Israel has already seen what holding back did for its global reputation: it got libeled in the notorious Goldstone Report. What’s the lesson?

WIN! Three simple letters. That’s what is needed to stop Hamas cold in the future.

NormanF on April 1, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    Killing all those Germans in Dresden was just plain murder.

      My ass.

      Jack Hampton on April 2, 2010 at 7:52 am

      @dougx,As opposed to what the germans were doing to the english when they bombed London. The number of people killed at Dresden is a minute fraction compared to the number of people killed by german atrocities during WWII.

Hopefully this is just the beginning. Netanyahu can effectively disregard Obama; he is a wounded president, and even though many Jewish people in the US have illusions about Obama, and are confused about the Mideast, I don’t think that most of them would be comfortable with Obama being openly hostile to Israel. The Dems are on the verge of losing Congress, and the Republicans are publicizng, however ineptly, Obama’s hostility to Israel.

Little Al on April 1, 2010 at 8:51 pm

Excellent post, Debbie. Also, excellent comments by everyone here so far.

JeffE on April 1, 2010 at 9:33 pm

One more thing:

Israel should also reliberate Gaza and annex the territory as part of Israel.

JeffE on April 1, 2010 at 9:35 pm

Israel is not only concerned about world opinion but about what that rotten moslem illegitimate in the white house could do.

Leslie White on April 1, 2010 at 10:11 pm

Yes, Israel should robustly defend itself against Hamas-ruled Gaza. Warnings should be issued to Gaza that the next Qassam attack or other act of aggression will result in a permanent cessation of all food, water, medicine, fuel, and electrical power that Israel has foolishly been providing to its enemies. Gaza’s television station, with its exhortations to kill the Jews, should also be destroyed. Ultimately, a population transfer will be necessary, with Gaza Muslims repatriated to Jordan, Egypt, or elsewhere within the Muslim world, and the Israelis retaking and annexing Gaza, in perpetuity. (cont.)

commonsense on April 1, 2010 at 10:20 pm

Until then, let Egypt, recipient of billions in U.S. aid, open the Rafah Crossing and use some of this largesse to provide the Gazan Muslims with the electrical power, fuel, water, food, and medicine that they require. The fuel can come from the Sinai oil fields that Israel found and developed after 1967, and which were naively and dangerously ceded to Egypt in three stages after the faux peace deal with Sadat, strongarmed by Jimmy Carter and the Jew-hating Zbigniew Brezinski.

commonsense on April 1, 2010 at 10:35 pm

There is a double plated silver liner to this story. American Jews, including ex-New York Mayor Koch, just today expressed complete outrage over Obama’s almost unheard of snubbing Isreal’s prime minister a few days ago. Now, untold numbers of American Jews are expressing that they shouldn’t have supported Obama’s Campaign, with both money, pull from powerful lobbying groups, and with an almost unanimous voter base. Serves them right, and I laugh outloud at them.
The upside to this, is Isreal has shown true superhuman restraint, in serving punishment to their enemies in the middle east, and now Obama’s snub, just gives a determined country the chance to throw off the yoke of American resolve to keep them from defending itself. Obama also has proved, what many suspect, that during his “formative” years under the Rev. Wright, who has a long history of teaching the beliefs of Farrakahn, an out spoken anti-semetic, his true feelings, that of embracing muslim anti-Isreal “theology”. I’ve always been a firm supporter of Isreal, and think Obama’s snub, something that no President or Head of State should have done publicly, unless they’re a third world nation dictator like Chavez, actually gives them the freedom and go ahead to defend themselves, and give a little payback in spades. Go Isreal. As for American Jews, well you drank the kool-aid, quit your whining about Obama, it’s a bit too late.

Jim Chaney on April 1, 2010 at 10:40 pm

    Oh, I forgot…Hillary’s (who’s been known to throw around a little anti-semitic comment or two herself), is probably pounding back booze and asprin, as a preemptive measure to cure the mass tangle of headaches that she’s going to be facing soon.

    Jim Chaney on April 1, 2010 at 10:46 pm

If Israel wants to survive, they have to hit back. There is no alternative, except for capitulation and request for safe passage to America. That’s assuming Obama and the Democrats would let them come over, which is doubtful. They might end up in refugee camps themselves if they don’t keep a hard line.

dougx on April 1, 2010 at 10:48 pm

Blow all terrorists to kingdom come! You kill innocents? You die. Simple as that. If there is collateral damage… well, sorry about that. But you brought it on. I’m really sorry about killing tens of thousands of Japanese in 1945. But guess what: though you may start a war on your terms… we will end it on ours.

Cameron Reddy on April 1, 2010 at 10:51 pm

More proof that Cast Lead and the disengagement were complete failures.

Rebuild Gush Katif!

Shalom Shalom,

May God Hands cover His chosen May His blessing of Israel be His warning to the world. May His judgment be swift and true.

“Killing all those Germans in Dresden was just plain murder.”

Yes and that was less than what they deserved.

Facts Life on April 2, 2010 at 12:03 am

    If I were you, I would concentrate on your current enemy and not make any new ones.

    dougx on April 2, 2010 at 12:19 am

      @dougx, I’m not worried about new enemies. There is plenty of lead and rockets to go around. Israel should’ve been rid of those bastards a looooong time ago. And anyone like them. I’m wondering if we will have to clear it with anyone to go after the Mexican drug cartels.

      Joe on April 2, 2010 at 1:52 am

Hit em harder!

BB on April 2, 2010 at 12:14 am

Go Israel go.
That is all.

Richard on April 2, 2010 at 12:54 am


Rotate the stock of all the missiles. Keep the inventory as fresh as possible. Maybe Ben will put a KFC in there some where.lol

Joe on April 2, 2010 at 1:10 am

Go israel!!! And all of israels enemies can burn in hell. And if the obama administration turns on israel, then let him and his administration burn in hell too

Zach on April 2, 2010 at 1:11 am

Thank you Ms. Schlussel for your selfless sacrifices.

Message to Israel and beloved Jews: Please feel comforted knowing that there are MILLIONS, probably tens-of-millions, of gentiles who not only support you and Israel, but are willing to die to help you.

Would America, like Israel, respond after several thousand missile attacks?

If no, go ahead US enemies, you have several thousand “freebies” before US gets serious.

God save you if Iran goes Nuclear. You know damn well Chairman Obama will not lift a finger to help. Isreal I mean.. he may support his fellow Brotherhood members in Iran but Isreal he will let burn.
Though he does not have the heart to be another real Hitler (though his policies match) he does not have the heart to do anything himself

Of course the Ass,sociated Press will announce a nursery was hit along wit an orphanage. Oh yea I left out a circle of nursing mothers.

Brute force is the ONLY thing these lunatics understand. All this namby pamby garbage about a “peace process” and “cycle of violence” does nothing but drag this bloody soap opera out indefinitely.

Picture the world in 50 to 100 years as liberal/leftists ignore the islamic threat seen daily.

Bob on April 2, 2010 at 11:23 am


No! The abomination is the muslim world that amputates hands and legs, stones people to death by throwing stones at their head after burying them in the ground with only their head above the ground, forced female circucision, honor killings, burkas, having sex with litte girls like mohammy did, or having sex with men and boys like yassir arafat didetc., etc., etc.

islam is the abomination!

Bob on April 2, 2010 at 11:30 am

Jim Chaney writes, “Now, untold numbers of American Jews are expressing that they shouldn’t have supported Obama’s Campaign, with both money, pull from powerful lobbying groups, and with an almost unanimous voter base.”

Some Jews, but sadly not all. I briefly got into it at a family gathering with my 29-year old nephew who remains a KoolAid-drunk in-the-tank supporter of Obama. He claims to “love Israel”, but insists Obama’s treatment of Israel is justified. When I argued counter, he insisted I’m talking “Fox News” nonsense (I’ve got two degrees majoring in international politics and don’t even get Fox News). Arguing with a liberal is like debating with a cultist.

Raymond in DC on April 2, 2010 at 12:24 pm

    re:” my 29-year old nephew”

    that’s because leftists like ward churchill have been preaching to them in universities for years.

    Bob on April 2, 2010 at 12:41 pm

we don’t need to say why, or make excuses

just yeah ny times and bbc and whoever we did it !! we
will do it again……..

we dont care about civilians we dont care about your terror moms and the mongrel terror kids……….

deal with it…………

drew299 on April 2, 2010 at 5:21 pm

Kill em all israel. I’m tired of all these damn liberal politicians in Washington try to tell Israel what they can and can’t do. Hell, the only choice they make throughout their day is how many shots of espresso they want in their cappucino. We need to fix America’s problems first before we tell Israel what to do. I don’t know what the hell happened in the last 60 years that made America’s balls fall off. Congrats to Israel for still having a pair.

I heart Israel on April 2, 2010 at 6:09 pm

Musta Enkeli seems to be saying here that U.S. aid to Israel, a “crappy” country, is bankrupting us. “Crappy” Israel has provided the world with more breakthroughs in medicine and technology than all of the world’s Muslim countries combined. Furthermore, Israel is, unlike the rest of the Middle East and all Muslim countries, part and parcel of the West. Enkeli seems unconcerned about the billions we give to Egypt, to Jordan, to Iraq, to Pakistan, to the Palestinian Arabs. What does the USA get from these recipients in exchange? Enkeli’s antisemitism blinds him to the threat posed by a nuclear Iran not just to Israel, but also to Europe and ultimately the USA, as Iran is hellbent on developing not only atomic bombs but also a delivery system capable of reaching us. And their religious fanaticism, fueled by an evil ideology (Enkeli should get a clue about Islam, and its global geopolitical imperative), is the real threat here. Israel a threat? What a hateful, antisemitic ass Enkeli is.

commonsense on April 2, 2010 at 8:36 pm

    Enkeli needs to go back to his mothers basement, and smoke some more crack, bought with her “entilement” check. If not just a juvenile troll, this asshat just has no idea of reality, either by diminished use of brain matter, or just plain stupidity.

    Jim Chaney on April 2, 2010 at 9:39 pm

Only way to deal with muslims or hamas kill all of them.
Isreal should destory Hamas and deal with iran at same
time.Isreal must destory muslims in the wourld and
islam too.Time to crush muslims and destory all
there countrys too.We must take over all there
oil wells and destory them know.We can use
all muslims as are slaves whip there ass to hell.

master tom on April 3, 2010 at 12:09 am

They should turn Gaza into a glass parking lot to show the rest of the Muslim World what happens when you try to exterminate Israel-IMHO

The US State Department is full of Commies as well as this administration and should be ignored by Bibi. I am so sick and tired of our Government telling Israel not to attack the terrorists in the Middle East.

Even the 10 plagues are mourned during Passover.

Dan on April 4, 2010 at 2:37 am


Other than a custom of a minimalist removal of drops of wine from the 2nd cup of wine at the Seder, what else did you have in mind? And even that minimalist custom has various other interpretations that has nothing to do with mourning for the Egyptians who died and suffered during the plagues.

I am not religious in the least, but there is a special place in hell for each and everyone of you. Do you think God meant you, when he said the chosen people. He certainly didn’t mean hateful, racist people like you wishing death on others.

    Thanks mem.

an illegal blockade that is starving Palestinians
