    Ceasefire in Gaza:

    GAZA (Reuters) -- Israel and militants from the Gaza Strip have agreed to an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire that will come into force at midnight local (2200 GMT), Hamas official Ayman Taha said, speaking to Reuters from Cairo.

    “An agreement for calm has been reached. It will be declared at 9.00 p.m. and go into effect at midnight,” Taha said.

    Israel shouldn’t let up. Keep hammering until Gaza breaks. You do not win wars by befriening the enemy. You win wars by destroying the enemy’s will and capacity to resist.

    The FDA would need an army of compliance officers, similar to the 16,000 agents hired by the IRS to look after ObamaCare’s new mandate, just to check the menu boards in thousands of stores.

    This will grow the size of the government and the government employees Unions, so to Obama this isn’t a bug. It is most definately a feature. You’ll have Pizza Compliance Officers who do nothing all day but drive between pizzareias and check that they are in compliance with the law, and issuing fines to those that don’t come up to spec. The Democrats consider That to be fighting unemployment. :roll:

  9. 9 | November 20, 2012 12:53 pm

    @ waldensianspirit:

    You ask the wrong question. Why should Israel, who has the upper hand here, stop hammering their enemy until that enemy is in complete submission? The rocket attacks will continue regardless of whatever Hamas promises. It is debatable as to whether Hamas even has the power to stop them if it wanted to. You don’t bargain with terrorists. That’s the First Rule for dealing with terrorists. Bargaining with terrorists just creats more terrorists. The way you deal with terrorists is you kill them. Kill enough of them, and the survivors will decide that they have better things to do with their lives than be terrorists. Or, of course, you continue until you run out of terrorists. Either way, the problem is solved.


  10. 10 | November 20, 2012 12:55 pm

    @ lobo91:

    Exactly. It is open to debate as to whether or not Hamas could stop the rocket attacks if they wanted to. At least some of these rocket attacks have been claimed by Islamic Jihad. Can Hamas give them orders that will be obeyed? I don’t know.


  11. 11 | November 20, 2012 12:56 pm

    @ Iron Fist:

    Its seems Obama has pressured Israel to stop. Turkey, Egypt, Tunisia, Qatar and The Saudis are putting the heat on Obama. This backs up what i have been saying. Hamas jumped the gun and was supposed to wait until the Caliphate has Syria,Lebanon and Jordan.

    Obama said he would stand with the Muzzies and he has not lied.

    If I were Israel, I would be looking for a new ally: Hint Russia. they have beef with the MB also.

    @ Rodan:

    Yeah, but the Russians don’t have a good history with the Jews. Israel is in a very hard place now. Obama is her enemy, and that means that the United States is no longer a reliable friend. I’d like to say that American public opinion wouldn’t allow for us to backstab Israel, but I don’t know that that is true in this case. Yeah, a majority of Americans support Israel, but Obama no longer has to worry about re-election. He has more flexibility in dealing with world affairs. The House can’t do anything but scream in impotance if Obama decide to cut the Israelis out into the cold.

    Lovely. I didn’t know that. It gets back to my question, though. Could Hamas stop the rocket attacks if they wanted to? My guess is a tentative “Yes” but not for very long. Muslims aren’t notable for their fire discipline. In any event, Hamas saying they want a ceasefire probably just means they are running out of ammunition. They need time to rebuild their stockpiles of rockets. They’ve fired what, 700 over the last few days? I realize that these are improvised terror weapons, and that they are crude, but Gaza has been under a blockade for a long time. They aren’t able to just import replacements from Iran.

    They have a worse history with the Muzz. It’s not about love of Jews, it’s about uniting against the Caliphate. Russia has been singled out as an enemy by the MB. The Russians have a history of allying with people they don’t like. See WWII. Israel does have to look for other options


  19. 19 | November 20, 2012 1:07 pm

    Iran has cut off Hamas over Syria. Its Islamic Jihad they arm now. Egypt and Turkey will arm Hamas now. This makes it worse.


  20. 20 | November 20, 2012 1:08 pm

    @ Rodan:

    Yeah, Hamas will say they been victorious in the glorious cause, piss be upon them. That is why Israel shouldn’t stop. Defeating the Palestinians (and the Muslims as a whole for that matter) isn’t that much different than the Union defeating the South in the Civil War. Israel far outguns their enemies. You can’t even remotely compare their economies. But Israel needs to be merciless in her strikes. Strike at the heart of the people that are making war on them. More Sherman and less Ghandi is what is needed here.

    The only people who have effectively dealt with the are the Serbs. they beat the Muzz so bad that Clinton bombed them twice to stop. You don’t see the Muzz wanting another round with the Serbs?

    The Muslim Brotherhood Block (Turkey/Egypyt/Qatar/Tunisia) will look like heroes now. They can claim they forced Israel to back off and they will appear as heroes to the Islamic world. This helps their propaganda against Iran and Hizballah. After all Iran could not force Israel to back off but the MB block will claim this.

    @ eaglesoars:

    The report from Fox’s Vitter says that a large increase in rocket attacks from Gaza has begun to overwhelm the Iron Dome defense, which means that Hamas wants to push it as much as possible before cutting off the rocket attacks — if they do at all.

    Israel should level Gaza. It isn’t that big. They shoudl destroy every building, every car, every hole in the ground that could hide a terrorist. Mao Tse Tung said that the guerrilla was a fish that swam in the sea of the people. Israel shoud drain these terrorists’ sea.

    In the post-Petraeus era, former agency folks say get out of the building and onto the street. There is a popular narrative coming out of last week among former intelligence officers when it comes to how the CIA should do its job after Petraeus. Drone operations and counter-terrorism activity in general has impeded the agency’s ability to focus on collection, and the insatiable demand for targeting information, which requires less shoe leather and more computer screen time, means other important information may be overlooked at the peril of national security. Of course, it’s not as simple as that, but the notion is that the kind of CT operations the Obama administration focuses on has drowned out important voices in the intelligence community. Indeed, many have said for a long time that the agency should return to its roots in collecting and analyzing intelligence and move away from paramilitary operations that some believe are more of the Pentagon’s domain anyway.

    “Let the military do their work and focus on intel-gathering,” said a former analyst who wrote “The Human Factor,” under the pseudonym Ishmael Jones. “It’s what we need to do.”

    I think they already have some bilateral ties, but India can’t project power and doesn’t make the kinds of weaponry that Israel needs. The problem with Israel seeking to ally with Russia is different. Israel’s entire military arsenal is based on US weapons designs. Their airforce is primarily US warplanes. For them to move over to the Russian’s camp means replacing all of that equipment. Israel does have some domestic weapons manufacturing (think Merkava tanks), I think the IDF even uses M-4s for their rifle now. Such close ties to the United States made sense until we elected a philo-Muslim to the White House. Congress can only do so much. If Obama gave an executive order that no more F-16 parts were to be shipped to Israel, no more F-16 parts would be shipped to Israel. Would Obama go that far? I honestly don’t know. I think he would if the gain were great enough for th eMuslim Brotherhood. After all, he sent American into combat for al Qaeda in Libya. I’d say he’ll go a long way to support his Muslim peeps.

    The Gaza-based jihadi group Jaish al-Ummah published two statements on jihadist forums on Monday claiming responsibility for a series of attacks against Israel.

    What about France? They’re antisemitic to the core, scared shitless of their Muslim population, and doing jack-all to protect French Jews from Muslim violence.

    Despite Napoleon having emancipated the Jews of Europe, the French showed their antisemitism in their response to the Dreyfus affair; in their response to the Stavisky affair; in their collaboration with the Nazi regime in shipping the French Jews off to the camps; in their embargo of Mirage jets during the Six-Day War.

    Israel has a lot of poverty due to letting in refugees, world boycotts, social programs, and the Islamists within who work the system, and above all, the huge amount of money that MUST go towards defense. I don’t have stats, but think about it for a minute.

    Building combat aircraft from the ground up isn’t economical for Israel. The Kfir was based on the stolen plans of the Mirage III airframe, and used American engines.

    They cancelled the Lavi program in the late ’90s because they decided it was too expensive to produce.

    I think that’s true b’cause he wasn’t one of “them”:

    Petraeus’ transition from military to civilian life was awkward, and he experienced cultural and personality clashes at the agency, the former officer, who did not work under Petraeus, says. He arrived there wanting to understand the issues, but the culture change he confronted and the recognition that he was no longer a four-star commander contributed to his inability to have as much of an impact as he might have thought he’d have. “I think all that went away when he realized that he couldn’t lead but he had to follow.”

    The French cut the Israelis off, IIRC, before the Six-Day War—though I may be misremembering, and it may have been just after. They embargoed jets that were already paid for, and my recollection is that Israel then “stole” them.

    The CIA doesn’t work on a top-down model the way the military does.

    Everyone works on their own projects, within their own little lanes. On top of that, the way you get ahead there is more like the way it is in journalism. Everyone jealously guards their own information, lest someone else “scoop” them.

    Absolutely. They have to be a moron to be willing to work for the SCOAMF.

    @ buzzsawmonkey:

    It was right after that DeGaulle cut them off. It’s ironic because it was the best advertisement for French weapons. France was trying to curry favor with the 3rd World Movement.

    French support for Israel is a Mirage.

    The French cut the Israelis off, IIRC, before the Six-Day War—though I may be misremembering, and it may have been just after. They embargoed jets that were already paid for, and my recollection is that Israel then “stole” them.

    Those were the Mirage Vs, which were designed specifically for Israel. When the government cancelled delivery, the French air force ended up with them. They were eventually turned into a long-range nuclear delivery platform for the French.

    The intellectual class in France is leftist and pro-Islam. That even includes some Jewish lefties, just like in the rest of the West.

    The French emancipation of the Jews in the early 19th century was under the declaration, “to the Jews as individuals, everything; to the Jews as a nation, nothing.”

    Ahad Ha-Am, writing at the end of the 19th century, observed in his essay “Slavery in Freedom,” that the Jews of the West, particularly the Jews of France, had betrayed their birthright for an illusion of “civil rights” which left them divided, vulnerable, and apologetic. An essay well worth reading.

    My recollection is that at the time at least some of them ended up in Israel despite the cancellation of delivery. The French were outraged; supporters of Israel cheered.

    Boats of Cherbourg: The Secret Israeli Operation That Revolutionized Naval Warfare

    ok ok you can all stop pounding on me re: France. But I don’t think the French people love the muzzies AT ALL. Altho now that I think about it, their pre-disposition to be ‘anti colonial’ would lead them to not want to support Israel

    Good points.

    BTW, barq hussein would sell out Israel in a New York (times) minute. Bad enough that rice is our representative to the Useless Nations, imagine her as Sectary of State.
