Awesome: Hamas Leader Destroyed by Twitter Message, Israeli Air Strike

Posted on | November 14, 2012 | 14 Comments

But mainly, yeah, it was the air strike:

Hamas has said that Israeli air strike in Gaza which killed Ahmed Jabari, the head of its military wing, “has opened the gates of hell” . . .
Jabari, who is the most senior Hamas official to be killed since an Israeli invasion of Gaza four years ago, was killed in an air strike on a vehicle, in a dramatic resumption of Israel’s policy of assassinating Palestinian militant leaders.
Jabari has long topped Israel’s most-wanted list, the Associated Press reported, and was blamed for in a string of attacks, including the kidnapping of Israeli soldier Gilad Schalit in 2006.
His son was also reportedly killed in the targeted air strike, according to Osama Hamdan, a Hamas representative in Lebanon . . .

The air strike was accompanied by this Twitter exchange between the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) and the Hamas “Al Qassam Brigades”:

And here’s the IDF video of the strike that took out Jibari:

    Driving around in broad daylight while shooting missiles at the most formidable military in the Middle East. Saladin is shaking his head.

    Oh, oh. This could turn into a flame war. The FBI should seize both sides emails for the past 3 years.

    Well a famous General once said “War is the remedy our enemy has chosen and I say give them all they want”. His name escapes me at the moment…
