IRON DOME, acting on the usual: Muslim Arab-Palestinians target civilians, Israel defends

“Palestinians” in Gaza began (again) a barrage of [about 120] missiles upon Israeli towns, targeting civilians. Israel uses ‘Iron Dome‘ defense system.

Gantz: IDF will continue to respond forcefully, sensitively [Ynetnews]
Published: 03.11.12, 13:25 / Israel News

IDF Chief of Staff Lieutenant General Benny Gantz said: “Zuhir al-Qaisi and other terrorists killed were involved in planning a deadly terror attack against Israeli civilians, which was suppose to come out of Gaza through Sinai.”

“Over 120 rockets have been fired at Israel and 20% of them could have caused death and distruction within the Israeli populations. They were interceted by the Iron Dome. The IDF responded and will continue to do so with force and sensitivity over any attack on Israel. We are not interested in escalation, but Hamas is the sovereign,” Gantz added. (Yoav Zitun)

Israel under fire: Schools closed in south due to rockets – Israel TodayIsrael under fire: Schools closed in south due to rockets
Sunday, March 11, 2012 | Ryan Jones

Some 200,000 Israeli children throughout southern Israel spent Sunday hiding in bomb shelters instead of going to school as Gaza-based Palestinian terrorists continued pouring missiles and mortars into the area.

By midday Sunday, some 130 projectiles had been fired at communities across the western Negev region over a 48-hour period. At least two dozen Israelis have been injured, some seriously.

Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system has managed to intercept 28 out of 31 of the more dangerous Grad-type missiles, but simply cannot provide a comprehensive shield against such an onslaught.

Biased CNN explains as “news” why Palestinians aim at children

December 22, 2010

Biased CNN explains as “news” why Palestinians aim at children


At the CNN news ticker the following title of “news” appeared today (Dec. 21, 2010): “5 hurt in rocket fire,  retaliation in southern Israel” as well as on the page: http://edition.cnn.com/MIDDLEEAST  .


The HTML copied:

<li><a href=”/2010/WORLD/meast/12/21/israel.rocket.fire/index.html”>5 hurt in rocket fire, retaliation, in southern Israel</a>       </li>


Though when clicking on the actual link, the language is different.
http://edition.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/meast/12/21/israel.rocket.fire/index.html


That exact title was copied automatically on those that subscribe to CNN’s feeds, e. g.: http://news.vivasoft.hu/the-news/17842-5-hurt-in-rocket-fire,-retaliation-in-southern-israel.html and http://359online.com/5-hurt-in-rocket-fire-retaliation-in-southern-israel/



This fits very well with the Islamists-appeasement policy that whatever they do, it’s just a reaction, when in fact the Arab Palestinians are always initiating the attack aimed at innocent Israelis at their homes or at kindergartens when the children are gathered there, or/and practicing the use of its own civilians.


The hidden message behind the headline which attempts almost to equate the two sides is so outrageous, as if there’s some kind of moral equivalence between those that seek death and destruction for all and Israelis that struggle so hard to defend lives. So is the naiive “understanding” that when Hamas says it does something as a “retaliation,” we should simply “believe” it. Since when is news media a mouthpiece for terrorists? No one should buy into it as a fact, or anything else beyond a Hamas’ propaganda argument. Neither CNN, nor anyone else can assert what is a “retaliation” and what is in fact, an excuse.


According to this twisted CNN view it’s all a game, they are just both fighting each other, nothing about Israelis defending citizens from Palestinians seeking civilians as targets, or/and children when they go to school. Note also CNN’s general ommission of the Israeli exact location ‘KINDERGARTEN’ repeatedly a target


Moreover, it entails a horrific cheapening of Israeli lives, that they’re hurt “only because of some retaliation” thing.


Again and again, CNN shows its real “news” colors, when its more of an opinion medium.


How about a simple non-opinionated news headline: “Palestinians fire at Israeli homes,” or “Palestinians attack Israeli kindergartens, again.” The truth for a change!

More revelations on Arab Palestinians fake “victimhood” – Israel’s Gaza toll far lower than Palestinian tally (Pallywood, Jeninitis)

More revelations on Arab Palestinians fake “victimhood” – Israel’s Gaza toll far lower than Palestinian tally (Pallywood, Jeninitis)

Israel’s Gaza toll far lower than Palestinian tally
Thu Mar 26, 2009 11:56am EDT

JERUSALEM, March 26 (Reuters) – Israel says far more armed fighters and far fewer Palestinian civilians were killed during its 22-day offensive in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip in January than reported in widely-used Palestinian figures.

In the first Israeli death tally to appear in an official publication since the Dec 27-Jan 18 war, it said a total of 1,166 Palestinians were killed, not 1,417 as reported by Palestinian human rights activists.

The figures were contained in a briefing paper issued by the public affairs department of the Israeli embassy in London on Wednesday (http://london/mfa/gov/il). They were later confirmed in a press release by the Israeli army.

The tally says 295 civilians lost their lives — about a third of the figure of 926 reported by Gaza’s Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (www.pchrgaza.org), which published a full list of names earlier this month.

The army statement, citing data gathered by its research department, said its count was based on “the names of Palestinians killed”. It said at least 709 of the dead in Gaza were armed militants, not 236 as reported by the Palestinians.

The Palestinian group said “255 police and 236 fighters” died in Israeli bombing and shelling — a total of 491.

Israel has made clear it regards police under the control of the Islamist Hamas rulers of Gaza as the equivalent of armed fighters.

The Israeli embassy paper said the “degree of involvement” in the armed conflict of a further 162 killed in its offensive was “still under investigation”. The army statement said they are “162 names of men that have not yet been yet attributed to any organisation”.

It did not say how the list of names was obtained.

DIED NATURALLY

The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights on Thursday reaffirmed its own figures, saying “extensive investigation and cross-checking .. determined that a total of 1,417 Palestinians died in the offensive” of whom 926 were civilians, including 313 children and 116 women.

The group’s Hamdi Shaqoura told Reuters the centre took a long time and employed great efforts to research the numbers and identities of Palestinians killed.

“We have the numbers and the names of the victims. The process was very well and carefully researched and our numbers reflected the truth,” he said.

“International law regards policemen who are not engaged in fighting as non-combatants or civilians,” he added.

An Israeli security source said the army’s research made clear “about a quarter” of those killed were uninvolved in the fighting “and that’s relatively low on any scale” for conflict in an urban environment.

The source suggested that the Palestinian count may have included death by natural causes during the period, which he said statistically would account for approximately 400 deaths.

Shaqoura said Palestinian researchers made sure not to include deaths caused by “internal events” or natural deaths.

He added: “When speaking about Israeli people, Israel regards all people under 18 years of age as children. But when speaking about the Palestinians Israel lowers the age to 16, in order to provide a cover for its army.”

The central aim of the Israel embassy briefing paper was to reject charges of war crimes by Israeli forces in Gaza from human rights groups.

Human Rights Watch said this week Israel’s use of white phosphorus shells over densely populated Gaza areas was evidence of war crimes, and United Nations investigators said Israel had targeted civilians. Israel rejected both charges.

The embassy paper said there was so far no adequate ethical code of war “to regulate the war on terror” in which “amoral” adversaries flouted the rules of war and used human shields with total indifference to human suffering.

What is bias in the middle east conflict? [March, 2009]
 

Arabs’ racist killing (specifically) Jews *, is accepted “freedom fighting’.

Israelis worried of Arab terror *, branded as “racists”.

*

War crimes, crimes against humanity by Palestinian Arab leadership – regime in Gaza * * * of using Arab civilians, making sure their kids die, for the “greater good (Jihadi-fascism’s goodness) of making Israel look bad…” * * * * * * *, using hospitals *, schools, UN medical vehicles * *, even aid material sent by humanitarian Israel * for murder, targeting at Israeli civilians, – shoved aside, ignored *.

Israel’s humane army’s extreme measures not to hit civilians (including 250,000 warning phone calls  to Arab residents to evacuate a particular area designated to be included in an op., knowing full well terrorists can cease the opportunity and flea, as well as risking young soldiers’ lives in going door to door) * * * * aiming only at Hamas terrorists is denounced of “random shooting” and “war crimes”.

[Arab led pressure forcing Israel to conduct] Uprooting Jews from their homes and their ancestors’, AKA Transfer * * AKA Arab Palestinian Apartheid * is “good for peace”.

Transfer of Arabs (who don’t have more than 2 or 3 generations of history in Judea / Israel / Palestine * * * *) is “apartheid, fascist and racist” * (AKA Avigdor Lieberman).

The ‘Qassam Kindergarten’ Jihad

The ‘Qassam Kindergarten’ Jihad
 
‘Palestinians’ Islamic Hamas, “loves” children, well, in their special ‘death cult’ type of way anyway.
 
You already know how they love their own children… to die for propaganda, and make every effort in succeeding in it – unfortunately.
 
But there are also other children under the “wings of Jihadi love” of Hamas, the Israeli children in schools, in kindergartens, they are “favorites”, favorites in Hamas’ targets that is, planning the time/place when/where they go to school, thank God for so many miracles where children weren’t harmed.
 
Call it ‘Qassam kindergarten’, ‘Kindergarten Jihad’, or plain ‘Jihad on kids’ the broader reality.

Disgraceful ‘Jihad Appeaser ‘ Jimmy Carter LIES openly on CNN’s Larry King and no one refutes him?

Disgraceful ‘Jihad Appeaser’ Jimmy Carter LIES openly on CNN’s Larry King and no one refutes him?
 
 Sat. (Feb. 7, 2009) night, Jimmy Carter said: ’Israel, it could have responded to the rocket attacks without firing on churches (excuse me, what churches in Islamic Gaza is he talking about???) and on Mosques’.
 
 A short while after that Larry confronted the worst-ex-president “You said earlier that Israel fired on mosques and on schools, what was Israel supposed to do as they responded to where the FIRING CAME FROM”?
 
 Jimmy, “I don’t known I wasn’t there, I only know that the UN said that Israel fired on them and there were only civilians there”.
 
Hey, Jimmy, so what if we show you now the updated version by the UN where they retracted their false accusation on Israel will you have the guts and say the truth about humane Israel that Israel was (as always is) humane on targeting only Islamic terrorists but Palestinian (”legitimate voted govt in Gaza – Hamas”.) Muslims commit crimes against humanity – target civilians?
