Israel under attack from hamas, war declared.

Post by Sport » October 8, 2023, 8:56 am

Israel last night was invaded primarily from the south by hamas. hamas crossed the Israeli border and hundreds have been killed on both sides. Numerous soldiers and civilians have been taken prisoner and abducted. Israel has declared war on hamas. This will escalate in the days to come. Israel was caught with its pants down on this one and I hope they can push back hamas and finish the job of destroying them.

this intelligence failure is right up there with Yom Kippur 50 years ago when the Israeli Intelligence Services were clueless about the Egyptian war preparations. Watch for a huge investigation over the coming months and a no confidence vote that should eject Netanyahu from his PM position. Hamas will suffer a lot of death and destruction for this attack.. Once the Israelis invade Gaza watch for the world leaders to immediately call for "sanity and restraint..." meaning of course, Israel should pull out and not hold Hamas fully accountable.

Hamas will not be destroyed. Israel will destroy what they can until the usual culprits start barking to end the violence. The UN will meet and harshly condemn the violence. Hell they might go so far as yo send a harshly worded letter
. One the violence ends Hamas leadership will reconstitute the movement and move toward the next conflict. Iraq will send them some of the money Biden released in the 'prisoners swap" and the cycle will continue.
What is the definition of insanity?

Following the latest on Al Jazeera news (ok, ok it will not be impartial reporting but lots of updates never-the-less)

Seems Hezbollah have got in on the action firing some missiles from Lebanon.

This could get messy quickly.

Gaza is the biggest prison on the world. About 2 million are stuck there. And peoplr do not understand why they hate their jailers. Meanwhile, on the west bank jewish settlers steal more land every year, and terrorise palestinian villagers and businesses. I am just surprised thry have not joined in, maybe because they still have not lost all the land - yet.

Apartheid lasted for over 50 years, but once armed resistance started, even the South African boers realised it would be a forever war, and eventually scrapped it. Israel is in a somewhat similar position but have not realised that.

Give the Palestinians most of their land back and treat them equally, and the war will end.

But what if the Palestinians (and Iranians and Syrians and a lot of others in other arab nations) continue to deny Israel's right to exist?

Well like certain countries in Europe been fighting each other for centuries for Land/ Political and other issues. I suspect Arabs and Jews will continue to fight each other also for centuries as well as certain Muslim factions fight each other but all for RELIGION ever since the Crusades. Nowt will change only the players.

Palestinians will not acknowledge Israel's right to exist. Throw in Iran's support of terrorists and the problem worsens. Of course the US adding 6 billion $ to the fire cannot be ignored.

"give the Palestinians their land back??" Which land? Where? Right of Return to their grand parents holdings? Who will govern the Palestinians? The old geriatric and absoltely corrupt Palistiian Authority led by Abu Mazzan who has a net worth of over a 100 million dollars? Or should it be those sterling Jeffersonians Hamas and their little cousins Palestinian Islamic Jihad? Both of those groups are known to murder any opposition firgures..

As for "jailed in Gaza?" Where does the fresh water come from? The majority of the electricity? 30,000 day jobs? Oh yea, Israel.. And "jailed?" Doesn't that ignore those nasty Egyptians who've blockaded the souther border of Gaza too? Why? Because Hamas is a violent terrorist organization who support the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt... Lots of spinning wheels here. Nothing is simple. This Hamas attack with pushing a 1000 Israeli dead, mostly civilians demonstrates Hamas to be utterly terroristic.. Why would the israelis ever negotiate with those a-holes ever again..??

The reports coming in that at least 260 young people who attended a music festival in southern Israel were raped and murdered is reprehensible, I just cannot get my head around that slaughter. Anyone who believes that was justifiable, needs to have a look at themselves.

small snipped from Al Jazeera news regarding Thais affected in Israel.
Thailand says 12 citizens killed in Israel, 11 taken captive
A spokesperson for Thailand’s foreign ministry says 12 Thai nationals have been killed and eight wounded in Israel.

Eleven others were also taken captive, Kanchana Patarachoke told reporters.

“We are working to help all Thai citizens in Israel,” she added.
My BIL and few other guys from the outlaws village worked in Israel for a few years. They all hated it (living in a container on a farm, occasionally getting shot at) and vowed never to go back. :shock:

of course Hamas snagged additional nationalities as hostages. More international coverage, more pressure from the governments of those hostages to get Israel to cut a cease fire with Hamas.. The pressure will start to rise from many governments around the world over the next week. I hope Israel can eradicate as many of the rat Hamas terrorists as possible in that time.. I'm wondering if Hezbollah will decide to seriously chime in and launch a few thousand of the repored 150,000 rockets and missiles they have stockpiled in Spouthern Lebanon.. If that happens will "ol' Joe Biden commit his air power in the region to eradicate those missile launch and storage sites???

Hard to predict where this will end up, but for sure the status quo - as articulated above so well by rick - has been severely shaken up.

At a terrible cost in lives.

Hezbollah will be a much more serious matter if they get fully engaged in the conflict. It will mean Iran will be in more than they already are too.

No. No he won't. And Congress (especially this headless one) wouldn't allow any other POTUS to do it either.

At least both sides are talking about hostage exchanges.

As for the Israeli "siege" of Gaza, how simply Putinesque can Bibi get?

Israel’s defence minister, Yoav Gallant, said that Israel is imposing a “complete siege” on Gaza.

“There is no electricity, there is no food, there is no water, there is no fuel,” he said.

Gallant in name only.
