All I can say is our greatest ally in the Middle East is once again under attack, and some in the US don't know which side we are on...There are a few folks in congress who need to be out of it at next election if not sooner....If we, as a nation, side with terrorist's and anarchist we will not stand much longer. It's been a good run, but the past year plus has made me wonder about our future as a free people.

It is interesting how some media reports so differently on this. Currently, msnbc.com main top headline can only be described as “pro-paletine” and sympathetic to Hamas for firing rocket volleys into Israel.
You are correct in stating that Israel is our greatest ally in the Middle East. We are never going to 100% like all the policies of our allies, but supporting Israel is important for a wide-range of issues.

Nice attempt to try and paint this as something Israel initiated. You should write for The NY Times or Washington Post.
literally the ONLY words I've typed on this thread until now was

"Getting very tense"

how the ever living heck did you get that as an attempt to paint this situation as something Israel started?

Didn’t you also compose the thread title? Geez Louise, pull your head out.
The thread title is nothing more of a stated fact of how far the escalation of the situation has become. It is not unusual for IDF and Palestinians to have clashes and conflicts in Gaza. However, when it has escalated to air strikes in Gaza, that is an escalation that is rare

I'm sorry but it's time for Hamas to end...they launched over 400 missiles at Israel in the past day and a half...end this terror.

Benjamin Netanyahu put out this tweet about 20 min ago.


@netanyahu


אנחנו בעיצומה של מערכה כבדה - מבצע "שומר החומות". צה"ל תקף אתמול והיום מאות מטרות טרור של החמאס והג'יהאד האיסלאמי ברצועת עזה. חיסלנו עשרות מחבלים, כולל מפקדים בכירים, הפצצנו מפקדות של החמאס, מוטטנו בניינים ומגדלים שמשמשים את ארגוני הטרור. אנחנו ממשיכים לתקוף בכל העוצמה.
Translated from Hebrew by
We are in the midst of a heavy campaign - Operation Wall Guard. Yesterday and today, the IDF attacked hundreds of terrorist targets of Hamas and Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip. We eliminated dozens of terrorists, including senior commanders, bombed Hamas headquarters, demolished buildings and towers used by terrorist organizations. We continue to attack with all our might.

Israel and particularly Netanyahu don't take no crap...and that was some big crap to be asked to "take." The world community needs to get behind Israel in this campaign to rid their immediate world of people who hate and want to kill them. May God restore peace to Israel in quick order and be with their troops in their time of need. USA needs to issue a firm..."We stand with Israel against terror" stance asap.
