… Iran is playing a dangerous game [#gaza fight]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,January 17th,2017

.. and Israel knows it .

.. if POTUS thinks that PM Bibi is going to back down in a confrontation like this , forget it . He is invested in this , politically as well as militarily . He needs to force Hamas to back down . While doing it , he needs to degrade Hamams ‘ ability to wage war severely ..

.. Hamas is playing with some serious hardware . Israel knows it , and has to figure out how to deal with it . It will not just sit back and take it in a defensive position , I will guarantee you that ….

… An Interesting Take [#on Israel]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 15th,2016

.. Professor William Jacobson is a well – known academic at Cornell University Law School School [in Ithaca , NY] . I am a longtime participant and fan of his blog, Legal Insurrection . From that , I became a Facebook friend of his …

.. no , I do not know his politics . He is a philosophical conservative , that is for sure . However , he could even be conservative Democrat . To be honest , I do not mind . He is an honest philosophical broker , which to me means a great deal …

.. Professor Jacobson and his wife recently took a 2 – week long trip to Israel . They travel extensively throughout the country , talking to many people of many political and philosophical stripes , especially on the center and the center – left . His take is very intriguing ..

.. [h/t — IJReview.com]..
.. [link] to the blog column ..

.. they are not enamoured with Bibi . They sure as hell did not vote for him . However , these folks do respect him . He has balls of steel . Conssidering the treatment that Israel gets on the international stge , these folks feel that Bibi is the only major Israeli leader that can stand up to these people . …

.. their opinion of His Lordship [Obama] is far worse . They like him political , which is obvious . However , they do not respect him , not one bit . They do not feel that POTUS cares not one whit for Israel , and may actually hate Israel , and with a deep passion . One in which the future security and existence of the Jewish state is in question …

… Erdogan is Playing with Fire [#Israel strikes Back]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 20th,2014

.. things could get even more dicey …

.. it seems that that Turkish group , I.H.H. , could be getting ready for another blockade run @ Gaza …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the intelligence report ..

.. the big problem is with new Turkish President Erdogan . Does he really want a shooting war with Israel ? He is planning to send a part of his country ‘ s navy as an escort . Doing so with a publically declared ” cordon sanitaire ” is , if I remember right , an act of war …

.. I wonder about the condition of the Turkish military . Will they really follow the orders of this jackass , or might there be more trouble to come ??

… Hamas has a Death Wish [#Israel strikes Back]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,July 31st,2014

.. so , give it to them .

.. there is no way in hell that Bibi is going to give in to Hamas’ demands . To do so would be to legitimize Hamas in the eyes of everyone . Netanyahu understands this , I believe . Obama does not , or does not care . Ditto JohnBoy Kerry …

.. Hamas ‘ leader has put a religious dimension on this warfare . In other words , he feels that all of Gaza ‘ s civilians are at his beck and call for him to make use of . That is grotesque , and inhumane , but it is how a jihadi thinks …

.. [h/t — Debka.com]..
.. [link] to the intelligence report …

.. so , go for the throat . If they will not unconditionally surrender , then go after them . Destroy them . They are asking for it …

… Hamas has a Death Wish [#Op Defensive Edge]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,July 24th,2014

.. Israel has a pretty good idea of where Hamas ‘ command centers and bunkers are , where they are located , and where exactly they are at …

.. going after them will not be easy . the combat will be intense and bloody . But , this time , it must be done …

.. [h/t — Debka.com]..
.. [link] to the intel report …

.. before , when Israel wanted to settle with Hamas , the Israeli leadership saw value in maintaining the command – and – control of Hamas . not this time ….

.. also , Hamas is more isolated than before . Other than you-know-who [Obama] , Hamas has very little protection . Especially considering who their supply master is …

… Is our own White House Crazy ?!?! [#israel strikes back]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,July 21st,2014

.. they are actually warning Israel against a ground incursion ? ..

.. with this crowd , they would do such a thing …

.. [h/t — English.alarabiya.net]..
.. [link] to the news article …

.. to get at the arms stocks of Hamas , short of its unconditional surrender , Israel is likely going to have to go in on the ground and go and get them . There is not much choice about it …

.. Hamas is not willingly going to give up one of its strongest military drawing cards , especially without the A-o.k. from the Mullahs in Qum [Iran] . I doubt that they would do that , unless they knew for sure that the Israelis were coming to get the weapons stocks …

.. with el – Sisi in power in Cairo , Egypt has a great deal more motivation to stop the arms smuggling into Gaza . So , they are much more willing to co – operate . But , when are where ? The players in the Middle East have changed , and Iran has its hands full in Iraq and Syria . Hamas will have to wait ….

… ” Knock , Knock , We Know that You are There …. ”

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,July 18th,2014

… Israel strikes Back [#Israel by Land , Sea , Air]…

.. now , what else do they target …

.. do they want to take out the Hamas ‘ command structure …

.. [h/t — Debka.com]..
.. [link] to the intelligence report …

.. I believe that the previous days ‘ ops were a softening up operation …

.. they were wondering if Hamas would be dumb enough to make a move under fire . Then , they would be out in the open . Then , they would be fresh for the kill …

.. I believe that the attacks on that hospital [the Shifa Hospital , in Gaza City] was Israel ‘ s way of saying ” knock , knock , we know that you are there …. ” . It was also a softening up operation in readiness for the main event …

.. if Hamas panicks , then they are out in the open . If they do not , then they are right where Israel wants them . Israel will need added troops [about another 30k to 50k] to isolate the area , block off escape routes , and then press in for the kill …

… Israel under Fire — Hamas playing Dirty [#terror]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,July 17th,2014

.. don’t they always ..

.. they always do .

.. but this is a case of enough is enough ..

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt]..
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. Hamas has been lobbing rockets from the Gaza Strip on – and – off for months . They are notorious for using civilian areas as launching pads for rockets , and now , missiles …

.. yes , missiles ..

.. rockets only travelel so far 8 to 10 miles at the miles at the most …

.. what Hamas is launching now is simple rudimentary missiles . . They are not much more than rockets , but they do have a guidance system . Meaning , that they have some idea of where those things are going . The scary thing is , with practice , Hamas ‘ missile shots will get more accurate with time …

.. then , they will be able to target specific places . Places such as military bases , vacation resorts , government ministries , synagogues , and other targets ….. ones such as the Knesset …

… Bibi at AIPAC …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,March 11th,2014

.. it took awhile to find a quality link to video of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ‘ s speech at this year ‘ s A.I.P.A.C. conference here in Washington , D.C. . But , I got it …

.. thank you to Professor William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection . They put out and put up really quality stuff …

.. I got a chance to watch the speech by Bibi . Wow ! It had been awhile since I had heard him speak to an American audience . I forgot that he worked quite a few years here in the U.S. in Massachusettes , in some cases with Bain Capital and Mitt Romney …
