Video: Israel Hamas Strike


The Telegraph has posted video footage of the airstrike on Hamas military leader Ahmed Jabari said to be responsible for recent rocket attacks on Israel, said to “open the gates of hell.”  If that is true, what does Hamas believe it’s been like for Israel after decades of rocket attacks? Hamas has been firing rockets into Israeli suburbs (inhabited by about 1 million non-combatants) for years, without provocation. So, this is what Israeli citizens put up with on a regular basis and live under.  Israel has a right to protect itself, and a few days ago, Hamas launched several rocket strikes against Israeli suburbs.  It should be noted, Gaza was given to the Palestinians in exchange for peace.  Gaza has been used as a rocket launching pad into Israel for decades. If peace cannot be won, and political accord reached, will Israel go back into Gaza, as it was forced to do in Lebanon, where rockets still rain down?

Note how the Israelis wait until the car is clear of the bus or van and clear of other vehicles.

The video is here:

Israel says the strike was “targeting Gaza militants,” while Hamas says it is “political assassination.” I guess these subtleties are lost in war but relevant to the semantics of propaganda. Jabari was at the top of Israel’s most-wanted list according to the Associated Press, responsible for kidnappings and bombings. Hamas also says his son was killed in the attack.

About coNZervative

A blog about politics, life, culture, literature, music and thought from Christchurch, New Zealand [NZ] (the home of 10,000 earthquakes since 4 Sept. 2010) built because of the bullying and cajoling of Liberal opinion-makers (journalism and Hollywood) against conservative-minded people who are as entitled to opinion and a perspective as anyone; and because Conservativism has served the world well. John Stringer is a New Zealander (Christchurch) in his 50s married to an American from Taco Bell; they have 5 adult children in 3 diff. countries. John is an ex-Anglican pastor, a teacher, published author (NZ), novelist (USA) and cartoonist (Aust, NZ), and has spent the last 25 years in NZ politics with the National party (he was a parliamentary candidate in 1999). There was a stint in London working for the British Conservative party as well, where he did media minding and campaign work with several Brit cabinet ministers, including Baroness Thatcher, Baroness Blatch, Michael Howard, Tom King, among others. He has an MA (classical studies, Victoria); is a graduate of the New York Film Academy; and has various awards for writing. His passions include British bulldogs, fly fishing, and history (Ancient and WWII). Winston Churchill was mainly a “Conservative” but also a “Liberal” MP between 1900-1964. A Member of Parliament for 64 years, he contested 21 parliamentary elections (for Oldham, Manchester North West, Dundee, and Epping/Woodford). Throughout his career Churchill stood for liberty. He believed in open debate and freedom of speech, and opposed any system or ideology that tried to dictate the way one should think. Churchill felt deeply that disagreements within the democratic system should not degenerate into personal animosities. RIDER: This site is not connected to nzconservative, a Catholic site, or NZ Conservative Party, although from time-to-time I share some of the views espoused by both groups and other sites I follow, as published; I am an independent thinker and blogger.
