Israel’s Army Sends Contingent South to Gaza Border

There is a limit to how much rocket fire even Israelis will put up with.

Lines of tanks, armored personnel carriers and jeeps are moving along roads that were carefully paved smooth earlier this year.

Thousands of IDF soldiers already toting their gear are ready, seated in trucks and APCS, patiently waiting for orders that will decide their actions.

But for now, they’re still in waiting mode. The orders haven’t yet been issued – they’re only getting into position – everyone’s just moving south to the border with Gaza.

Disc jockeys and talk show hosts on Army Radio have that manic quality in their voices as they strain with extra effort to be especially funny in routines that have a sharper edge than usual.

The music is jumpier, punchier. No information that could let you know what’s really going on. Standard procedure for the State of Israel in high-tension security mode.

It would be smart for Gaza terrorists to rethink their actions, if they’re thinking clearly at all. Now is a good time to consider their families, if they ever consider anyone.

The requisite warning to Hamas went out. They know the steps to the dance. No fools they, the entire leadership of that terrorist organization went underground at least 48 hours ago. No bellicose statements issued from Ismail Haniyeh since the beginning of the week. He’s hiding from Israeli fighter pilots and air strikes, content to let Gaza families pay the price for his belligerence when Israel is forced to bomb rocket launchers buried up against their homes.

In that way, he’s not much different from Hezbollah terrorist chief Hassan Nasrallah, who has been in hiding for years, since the 2006 Second Lebanon War, for similar reasons.

But the rocket fire continues, and it will soon have to be silenced one way or the other. The price for leaving it is getting too high. Tens of thousands of Israeli civilians cannot sleep at night, cannot function by day. Too many children are growing up damaged. It’s approaching the time to put the matter to rest.

  19. Chaim Szmidt says:

    Just like brave men, the chicken leadership of the Palis has already hidden so that others may die as "maryrs" on their behalf. What's next? Hiding behing the women's burkas, hospitals and kindergartens? Oh, silly me, they've been doing that for quite a while already. What a display of unbelievable bravery!!!

  20. If you are going to spew your hatred, at least learn how to spell…
    The rightful homeland of the JEWS is spelled ISRAEL, and the name by which the people in the area from where the terrorists are committing murder is spelled “palestinian”…

  21. Paul Brooks says:

    If you need backup call me.

  22. God and the American people are with Israel. Push the terrorist and Palestine back into the CAVES where they belong.

  23. Donna Hambright Glatt says:

    Praying for Israel..God be with you and catch those worms that went under ground as all cowards do..

  24. Air strikes against not just Hamas leadership, but all known members of Hamas would be a good way to introduce a heavy and sustained Merkava application. If any ISIS are found, do what must be done, just do not take any prisoners.
