Question: At an estimated $70,000 per Iron Dome launch, if the Iron Dome system determines that a Hamas rocket launched from Gaza is about to hit PA civilians in Palestinian Authority controlled Ramallah, does Israel have a moral obligation to shoot the rocket down?

What do you think?

  1. Paul W. Howe says:

    This is a trick question right?? Blame it on Israel again… we know this evilness very well…

  2. Is no a good answer?

  3. What? The Iron D is for Israel!!

  4. Since Fatah has allied itself with Hamas……not one damn thing.

  5. Why? The PA and Hamas are in bed together. If they want to kill each other so be it!

  6. Sekove Waqa says:

    Let them kill there own

  7. Robair Bahou says:

    Israel must Unforgiving killers !

  8. Oooops! Missed that one! But seriously, Israel is defending her territories, and the PA should have spent time and resources to look after themselves. They reared this monster and it is hard to put it down but it is up to them to be responsible for their actions.

  9. Comsidering the fact that Gazans are willing to be used as human shields, they are just as bad as the terrorists. They also want Israel destroyed. Nothing wrong with striking in civilian populations.

  10. Yes. Shoot it down

  11. We have an obligation to protect our people, period. They have the same obligation for their people. If they choose to let theirs be murdered, that is not our fault. They are not more important than us.

  12. yes, it does. These fools don’t aim. What would happen if they hit the Temple Mount is my question?

  13. They will shot it down Hamas are the terrorist

  14. They will shot it down Hamas are the terrorist

  15. It’s your fault! You started the mess! So clean up the mess you made! You are one using the civilians as human shields. Your civilians had been informed by the IDF beforehand to leave the danger zone. Sorry! Your people are hard headed same as you!

  16. Timmy Boone says:

    No. Let them pray to the same idol that is used as a vain excuse for the murder of Gods chosen.

  17. Instant karma,let it fly!

  18. Yes. If rockets were fired in the US would we even be having this discussion?

  19. Why was this question even asked. Look at the actions of Israel compared to Hamas. Israel send flyers into civilian areas to warn them of incoming attacks. Israel treats the wounded from both sides at their hospitals, Israel allows food and supplies to cross into Gaza freely, etc.. Hamas gods on civilan population fully knowing that it will be a strike zone, they encourage children to strap bombs on their chest to kill as many Israelis as possible, they use civilians as human shields, etc… Now tell me why this question was asked !!!!

  20. Oops it should read Hamas goes onto civilian populations…

  21. Paul W. Howe says:

    If they hit Aqsa, the arabs would accuse Israel of provocation & claim equal rights to religion & demand for reparation which Israel like give. Yeah i know cracks u up thinking of it, isnt it???

  22. Oren Skurnik says:

    Absolutely not. Why would we want to help Hamas look good. Let them kill all of their own people.

  23. Israel should do nothing.

  24. Aurel Iovitu says:

    abu mazen should treat those rockets as inner-palestinian parcels and receive them with joy.

  25. Let them worry about it themselves. Kind of like “a work accident” when a bomb maker blows himself up.

  26. Take Gazastrip now!

  27. They are within Unity government. Israel respects airspace soverignity over the PA :D

  28. Beryl Cohen says:

    ABSOLUTELY NOT!

  29. Israelis should blow up the mosque on the mount anyway blaming Hamas rockets and even if it would have happen they would blame Israelis anyway , so may as well get rid of it.

  30. Israelis should blow up the mosque on the mount anyway blaming Hamas rockets and even if it would have happen they would blame Israelis anyway , so may as well get rid of it.

  31. Good question. But I think it is a bit mute, since the Iron Dome is deployed in areas where Hamas (מח שמם) is most likely to shoot the birds. Israel would probably protect them anyway because they value human life not like the animals that want to destroy us.

  32. Sue Johnson says:

    I wish it would.

  33. Sue Johnson says:

    Agree. But Israel will get the blame in the western press.

  34. Uzi Kattan says:

    Jewish law requires giving Gaza three choices: Make peace under OUR TERMS, leave or make war. The third option means we have to leave no survivors!!!

  35. Hit the Temple Mount, Dome of the Rock, Al Aqsa Mosque? ROFLMFAO

  36. Hit the Temple Mount, Dome of the Rock, Al Aqsa Mosque? ROFLMFAO

  37. Neal Appel says:

    Collateral Damage anyone?

  38. Let it fall on the PA they deserve it for stupidity

  39. What should Pals do about Hamas sending the missile that lands on its own people? C’mon!

  40. Rita Klein says:

    if it’s possible blow Hamas rockets towards Mecca, blow blow blow, push them over there, let’s start with Mecca … ka-boooom , then the rest of it

  42. Stu Katz says:

    I like Boudville and Zelikson’s answers. Unfortunatley for me I listened to both NPR and CBS radio and discovered that Israel is the aggressor, killing numerous innocent civilians. Not a word was said by these two “News” sources, that Hamas hides in Civilian locations so in order to stop the thousands of missiles that have been launched from Gaza, you have to destroy the launch sites, which are located in mosques, hospitals and civilian centers of population.

  44. The Palestinians are victims themselves by there strangulating leaders. They are hooked up to this demonic ideology. Sure you shoot down the rockets unless you know the will kill the perpetrators.

  45. Stu Katz says:

    Let’s see a rocket fired by a terrorist fails to hit apogee and falls back on the terrorists neighborhood. The answer is obvious. Hope and pray that rocket’s warhead is not a dud, like the launch system.

  46. Marc André says:

    I would stop invading their territories, just an idea like that :)

  50. I think they have a moral obligation not to fire rockets.

  51. So we should just say WELCOME to the rockets??? Allow ourselves to be destroyed once again, ultimately that is Hamas’s goal. Let me ask you, What do you think// should be done about Hamas, a well known terrorist organization

  53. All human life must be saved.

  54. All human life must be saved.

  55. Stu Katz , my thoughts as well

  56. let them kill each other

  57. Only Jews would be so stupid (or moral) to even entertain answering this question.

  58. Kim Libera says:

    The Lord thy God shall make war on Gog & Magog.

  59. Zvi Fink says:

    Abass will go to the UN and complain that we interfered with an internal Palestinian incident

  60. Mike Minoff says:

    We.need to.take care of jews first,.others second

  61. Ronald Raff says:

    That would be nice

  62. Ronald Raff says:

    Palestinians need to kick Hamas out of thier country

  63. Hamas bombing their own people… bad technology or twisted strategy ?

  64. The PA chose it’s side. The PA are Antisemitic and dance in the streets when Israelis gets hurt or killed so what do you think I would say?

  65. ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! It’s enough they provide electricity, water, tax revenue for this animals! Until they change their ways AND agree to pay for each expensive Iron Dome rocket which would intercept the cheep crap Hamas is flying! As an alternative, intercept the rocket and then deduct 20 times the cost of the rocket from their tax revenue.

  66. And, IDF should make sure that Dome of The Rock is wide open and available for direct rocket hit!!!!! Ooooo! That would sole so many issues!!!

  67. Emil Pieski says:

    Bomb Hamas back to the stone age!

  68. David Cohen says:

    Marc André, maybe they should stop invading Israel’s territory. Idiot.
