Israel Says “ENOUGH”…. Begins Counter Offensive Campaign Against Hamas

(Via WFB) The Israeli military commenced what government officials are calling a “widespread campaign on terror sites and operatives in the Gaza Strip, chief among them Hamas and Islamic Jihad targets” after suffering nearly a week of rocket attacks on Israeli territory.

On Nov. 11, 2012, the IDF targeted Ahmed Jabri, the head of Hamas’ military wing, in the Gaza Strip. Jabri was a senior Hamas operative who served in the upper echelon of the Hamas’ command and was directly responsible for executing terror attacks against Israel in the past.  (See Car Go Boom)

The Israel Defense Forces opened Operation Pillar of Defense with an airstrike on a car carrying the head of Hamas’ military wing Ahmed Jabri. More airstrikes quickly followed and are believed to have targeted other top Gaza-based terrorists and their weapons caches.

An IDF spokesman stated on Twitter that the opening round of airstrikes targeted 20 sites and sought to destroy stockpiles of longer-range Iranian-supplied missiles that Hamas has smuggled into Gaza. One report stated that the air force struck a warehouse containing Iranian-supplied Fajr missiles.  (more)

CAIRO: Egypt’s Islamist Freedom and Justice Party, formerly headed by President Mohamed Morsi, said on Wednesday Egypt would no longer stand by as Israel attacked Palestinians after air strikes killed a Hamas leader.

The FJP, the political arm of the powerful Muslim Brotherhood movement, said Israeli air strikes that killed top militant Ahmed al-Jaabari in Gaza earlier on Wednesday required “swift Arab and international action to stop the massacres.”

The party, which fielded Morsi in a June election to replace toppled president Hosni Mubarak, said Israel “must take into account the changes in the Arab region and especially Egypt.”

Egypt “will not allow the Palestinians to be subjected to Israeli aggression, as in the past,” the party statement said.  (more)

    • Watchout over the next 72 hours….. Obama just made a few slips in that presser…. Specifically he took ownership of the Susan Rice narrative and told reporters/legislatures to “come after him”. He just opened himself…..

      ……. Operatives will now urgently need a distraction to suck the media oxygen ASAP. Israel at War provides just such a distraction.

        I expect Israel is saying “Up Yours Obama!” They know they will have no help from the USA for at least four years.

          And at the same time, Egypt and Mohamed Morsi are assuming that the US cannot or will not support Israel. In effect, the Egyptians are saying “America, you are weak and ineffectual. You bow to sultans. You can now bow to radical Islam. Whether or not it is your national policy, (because only Allah can know what the Great Satan actually means by anything it says and does), you will bow toward Mecca. You have no authority in this region any more. So, go kiss A$$.”

    First off, having worked with the post-Soviet Egyptian military, Israel could deal with them easily unless the Russians or Iranians decide to interfere. Secondly, Israel usually shows great restraint in retaliating against The Usual Suspects, utilizing enough force not to give her questionable allies cause to back away from her defense or give the press reason(s) to attack her. Israel is quite capable of delivering a massive retaliation that would make the Saints win over the Falcons (self-serving bit there) pale in comparison. I only wish that Israel would just flatten the hell out of the Palestinian enclaves and end this almost 70-odd-year debacle once and for all. We have an Israeli state recognized by the UN and a Palestinian….what? Since their independence the Israelis have created the most vibrant technical and economic (non-oil based) state in the Mideast and the Palestinians have created….what? Sounds like after presiding over a hoard of whining professional victims here the POtuS might find a job as Palestinian potentate – his followers seem to have a lot in common.

    I hope Israel has a plan to take out all the Muslim Air Power on the quick. Including S.A. After that a massive strike to take out the Armor. Followed by elimination of Iran,s Mullahs and Nuke capability. They will have to go it alone now. Sooner the better for them. Our military is rotting from the top down.

    There’s something off on the IAF vid and the storyline–watched it about 6 times elsewhere. Thrilled about the outcome, but 30mm HE rounds put out a thermal plume equal to or larger than that. A vertical strike with A-S assets would have stopped that car in its tracks and created a significant crater in the pavement with the target possibly deflecting upward. That car appears to have detonated from the inside. Tin foil? Whatever; not worth a Zapruder. The process has started, as SD said above.

    Call me crazy but I have faith that God will take care of Israel. I also have faith God will take care of us, His children. Our nation not so much. I just can’t kid myself anymore and believe we live in a Christian nation, we might still have the majority who claim to be Christians, but Christians do not support what this country supported.
    God gave us the brains to do what we have to do and I think we should be prepared and fight where and when we can, but also understand our government is not a friend of God or us.

    I have faith things will get better for those of us who are putting our faith in God. It might not be on this earth, but I also believe God still has us here for a reason and we are probably going to face rough times like we’ve never imagined we would face, but no matter how bad it gets it will get better for Israel and all of God’s children.

    The notion of the west going after specific individual targets feels kind of new to me. It must have happened in the past, but not so openly. Seems like it opens a new door. Whats the next step orbital lasers?

    OTOH I prefer leaders to take the same risks as soldiers. No real alternative with something like Alkada.
