    Kassam rocket fired from Gaza strikes Eshkol region | Israel | Jerusalem Post

    Haim Yalin, head of the Eshkol Regional Council, told The Jerusalem Post that the rocket represented a moment of truth for the government, and called for a firm response to avert the next war.


    "During Operation Cast Lead, I and other local authority heads sat with Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and told them: 'It does not matter at what stage the military operation ends, what matters is what Israel does after the first rocket is fired,'" Yalin said.

    "We have now reached that stage. If the government fails to respond, and says the rocket was fired by a marginal group, we will be faced with another war soon. If we respond as we should, then we can hopefully spare ourselves another war," he added.



    "Israel must not show restraint. We have known this situation for too many years. It is like a child in a kindergarten testing his limits," Yalin said.

    Well, looks like the zionist massacre of arabs worked after all! Hey, I bet that one rocket is worth, what... at LEAST 78 toddler lives? Indeed, LOOKS LIKE THE ZIONISTS JUST NEED A FINAL SOLUTION, EH?

    Yep, the campaign just started in earnest and to complicate matters further Mitchell is in town to talk about strengthening the cease fire. Some one should tell him that both Israel and Hamas have denied that there is a cease fire; both say there is just a lull in the fighting.

    Fairly obvious Hamas does not care about the loss of "toddlers lives" either. Worse yet it looks like they are willing to have more losses to prove what? Other than that they can still send shit over into Israel and Israel won't react?

    yeah, here you are claiming to defend toddlers, yet odds are, the place this rocket came from was a daycare

    Honestly what Israel needs to do is get in direct talks with Hamas! Yes yes they are a terrorist organization, but they are the ones the hold the strings in Palestine. Talking doesn't have to lead to giving in!

    Are you a fucking moron? Does America talk with Al Queda? Did we talk to Germany? Did we talk to Japan? NO! We fucking leveled them - THEN we talked to them! It's time to level Gaza. Not the pin prick we did earlier this year. I mean, make parts of Gaza parking lots for drive in theatres and import some hollywood babes on roller skates with '57 cheveys and start playing some Godzilla movies at the place.

    Effort counts. At least if Israel is putting forth the effort no one can come back later and bite them for not trying.
