Ashkelon Mayor – This is What Happens When You Do Half a Job

Residents of the south are infuriated with senior IDF and government officials for saying that it was safe to go back to their homes in the south of Israel.

The mayor of Ashkelon, Itamar Shimoni said, “When are we going to learn that you don’t talk to terrorist organization, you eliminate terror organizations. By us there hasn’t been a cease fire, and things haven’t returned to normal. We’ve stayed in our protected areas.”

He added that when a terror organization is still able to threaten a sovereign states, it because [the state] only did half the job.

Residents of the south, who just recently returned home, are now leaving to safer areas in the country for Shabbat.

  2. Ariel Claude says:

    The Mayor meant to say: …”A half ass job and bending over to international pressure.”

  3. always easy to criticise but not so long ago international did not even allowed you to protect your self. forgot already ?

  4. Netanyahu get off your ass and send the IAF in to bomb those lying bastards who fired rockets at Israel again today. You will have to be much tougher if you want Hamas to know you mean business.

  5. I agree , I would be pissed too !!

  6. Martin Kool says:

    Only pressure from the US the problem is to much depending on the US

  7. Israel went to the peace talks in Egypt, gave the army a bit of respite, in tne meantime attention was 100%on Israel and ISIS got busy with no interference. So this is what the indignant west can expect, and NOT from Israel! what irony

  8. They should have known themselves that jihad lies.

  9. And all most other governments have no guts to tell the truth either.

  10. Obi Sunny says:
