Israeli Cabinet Cowed Back Into ‘Tit-for-Tat’ by Obama?

Has Israel been forced by U.S. President Barack Obama to return to the ‘tit-for-tat’ retaliation strategy that ruled the south prior to Operation Protective Edge?

The IDF destroyed two concealed rocket launchers and a weapons factory in northern and central Gaza late Monday morning, “in retaliation for this morning’s missile attack on Ashkelon,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said.

However, Hamas terrorists didn’t miss a beat, and launched another barrage of missiles at the Ashkelon Coastal region at about 12:40 pm.

To date, Gaza terrorists have fired some 2,540 rockets and missiles at Israeli civilians since the start of Operation Protective Edge.

The IDF appears to have been forced into standby mode by the political establishment due to pressure from the White House. The Obama administration led a demand by the United Nations Security Council Sunday that Israel carry out another ‘humanitarian’ cease fire.

Hamas has violated every cease fire in which Israel has participated, resulting in the flow of Israeli blood – and not always Jewish at that – and today was no exception.

An Israeli soldier was wounded by Hamas artillery fire in a firefight launched by the terrorists in the northern Gaza town of Beit Hanoun this morning, during the so-called ‘cease fire.’ The soldier is now listed in fair condition at Sheba Hospital in Tel HaShomer Medical Center in Tel Aviv.

  1. Jewishpress.com appears to be hacked on my screen.

  2. Obama’s flaccid Middle East policy must not push Israel into a premature ceasefire that does not contemplate a demilitarized Hamas. The only way to negotiate with Palestinuans is from a position of power (upper hand). Otherwise, they will play the bravado game, while hiding behind their women and children. No ceasefire for Gaza without a demilitarized Hamas!

    Eliran Shalev, I don’t know how you can put up with the political nonsense….I’m ready to scream, and I’m in U.S.

  5. Besides Obama being part of the move for the caliphate he’s plain jealous of Israel’s successes

  6. GOD BLESS ISRAEL+IDF.
    GOD LOVES ISRAEL+IDF.
    GOD PROTECT ISRAEL+IDF.
    WEE LOVE YOU ISRAEL+IDF.

    To answer the question, yes, I think both the Obama Administration and the U.N. are attempting to push Israel in that direction.

    they sacrifices Israel

  12. Skid Marks says:

    DO NOT LISTEN TO OBAMA OR HIS SUCKING FOLLOWERS ! HE IS A LIAR AND A THIEF, A MUZZIE WHO HATES JEWS AND EVERYTHING ISRAELI

  13. Israel please don’t do this. This administration is not your friend but our people are .

  14. PLEASE ISRAEL TELL OBAMA TO GO TO HELL

  15. PLEASE ISRAEL TELL OBAMA TO GO TO HELL

  16. The Muslim President has always been an enemy of Israel. His agenda is to be the Muslim Dictator of the United States. Hashem will empower Israel always and the President will be Impeached and will be thrown out of office along with his Head Clowns, especially the traitor Kerry. Israel is on her own so, the U.S. President has no say-so for the Nation of Israel. All attempts of stomping down Israel, its policies, shutting down air space is done in an attempt to control Israel policy. Israel is fighting alone, American politics, and the Muslim President need to back off Israel.

  17. Obama is ruining the USA…don’t let him ruin Israel.

  18. I’ve had the same prob all day with them.

  19. Eliran Shalev you said it all quite well

  20. DON’T GIVE IN TO THE BULLY!!!

  21. The Israeli government knows English pretty well, but the only word it needs to know is NO!

  22. Pastor Ron says:

    President Obama is undermining Israel every chance he gets, because he actually supports the efforts of Hamas against the Jewish nation, despite his unwillingness to admit this to the media.
