Gazan Terrorists Proliferate as War Erupts in Libya
While France, Britain and the United States are attacking Libya, Israel is experiencing escalation of rockets and mortars attacks from Gaza, directed at Israeli civilians. At the same time, due to their being smuggled from Iran and Syria, the destructive nature and the quality of the Gazan terrorists armament has increased.
The recent attacks are the worst since the end of Operation Cast Lead during the winter of 2008-2009. Last week, while Israelis were celebrating the Holiday of Purim, it is said that Iran instructed its proxy Hamas to attack Israel, resulting in a barrage of tenths of rockets falling on Israeli hometowns.
As usual, the International Community is pressuring and urging Israel to use restraint, while there is an obvious and irrefutable PalArabs, a/k/a "Palestinians" led campaign to delegitimize Israel's existence. The PalArabs, a/k/a "Palestinians" are the members of both factions, Hamas, the officially recognized terror organization.
Retaliation and establishing deterrence is needed. Israel has been successful in target strikes type against individuals and installations. It may even escalate such retribution.
Notwithstanding Israel's full right to defend itself, such actions are assured to produce condemnations by international figures, some who have unleashed Tomahawk missiles and sorties against Libyans in the name of human rights.
There is now also a possibility these international figures may even move and attack Syria that is brutally violating its citizens' rights to protest. So far only Saudi Arabia has "saved" itself from such threats.
Whatever action the IDF may take, it is likely to produce a response from Hamas or its allies. So far, none of their efforts have caused the kind of damage Israel is capable of unleashing in a game-breaking response. As long as Israel can hold this kind of luck, she may get through this surge of hostile activity with much less "noise" and damage than the one being caused to Libya or where Western powers are doing what they feel or think is just and appropriate. Remember Kosovo? But then, they fall under a set of rules, along which they conduct themselves, but which they forbid Israel to follow. Talking about hypocrisy bar none!
In her recent trip to Israel, while touring the tunnels at the Kotel, Sarah Palin told the Nation of Israel: "Israel is too apologetic!"
Israel must change its policy towards the Arabs and must become the symbol of NO! The symbol of STOP! The symbol of ENOUGH is ENOUGH!
