Once again, Israeli citizens are under rocket fire from Hamas. Once again, Israeli citizens are being forced into shelters, since rockets are being fired into their communities. This is who the anti-Semitic and radical Democrats want President Trump to provide more funding to. The Democrats (and J-Street) know full well that any money provided to the “Palestinians” in Gaza will go directly to terrorist organizations such as Hamas and Islamic Jihad, who will then use that money to kill Israelis. Despicable.
Predictably, the mainstream media is basically silent. No headlines from the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, or Washington Post. No angry commentary on CNN or MSNBC. Not a word from the UN condemning the attack. No outrage from anyone. That is because the attacks are occurring against Israel.
As Israel retaliates (which will likely be very soon), the anti-Semitic media will be on the warpath. Vile leftists such as Thomas Friedman, Fareed Zakaria, and Peter Beinart will vilify Israel for defending its citizens against Hamas. Anti-Semitic left-wing celebrities such as Linda Sarsour will call Israel a terrorist state. Radical left-wing politicians such as Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will call for boycotts against Israel. Left-wing Jewish groups such as J-Street will blame Prime Minister Netanyahu.
One should wonder what they would want their government to do if their cities, their children, and their loved ones, were under rocket fire. What would the government of the United States do if New York, Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles, or Miami, were under rocket fire? How would you react?
The government of Israel must take serious action to eliminate Hamas. Israel many not have a better chance than right now. Israel is working with the most pro-Israel administration ever. President Trump and the Republican-controlled congress will support Israel 100 percent for defending itself against Hamas. Israel needs to take advantage of this support. In November, things may be significantly different, since more Israel-hating Democrats could be in congress.
“Hamas pounds southern Israel with 70 rockets, IDF strikes back, JNS,
The Israel Defense Forces hit 12 Hamas positions across the Gaza Strip, including a factory that produces concrete for terror tunnels, late Wednesday night after several dozen rockets were fired on southern Israel by the Hamas terror group.
Rockets set off sirens across southern Israel Wednesday evening in the towns of Hof Ashkelon, Sha’ar Hanegev, Sdot Negev and Eshkol regions.
According to the IDF, approximately 70 rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip at Israel. The Iron Dome aerial defense system intercepted 11 launches, the majority of the rockets hit open areas.
However, earlier in the evening, at least two Israelis were injured as a result of rockets that landed in Sderot.
According to Magen David Adom, the two injured – a 34-year-old man with wounds from glass shards and a 20-year-old with light injuries – were evacuated to Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon. Over a dozen other people were treated for shock, including three pregnant women who began having labor contractions from the stress.
In a statement, the Hamas terror group said: “We are delivering on our promise. The resistance accepted the responsibility to even the playing field with the enemy and it is succeeding in doing so.”
Earlier on Wednesday, Hamas terrorists fired at an engineering vehicle near the northern Gaza Strip that was involved in the construction of a barrier along the security fence. In response, an IDF tank targeted a Hamas post in the northern Gaza Strip….
