Hamas Attacks Israel

Posted on | October 7, 2023 | Comments Off on Hamas Attacks Israel

More than 100 people have already been killed, according to reports from Israel, which is under a sustained attack from Hamas terrorists based in Gaza:

The Palestinian militant group Hamas launched unprecedented terror attack on Israel, which has included the firing of thousands of rockets onto the Israel and the infiltration of Israeli territory by land, air, and sea. Responding to the surprise attack Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has declared that the nation is “at war” and the terrorists “will pay a price it has never known before.” Thus far, the attacks in Israel have left 100 people dead and 900 wounded. Hamas claims it has captured Israel Defense Force soldiers and civilians during its assault on Israeli border towns outside Gaza. Israel’s military response–“Operation Sword of Iron”– has led to the deaths of 198 Palestinians and 1,610 people injured.

UPDATE: When Democrats like Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar declare their support for the anti-Israel BDS (Boycott, Divest, Sanction) movement, this is what they’re really supporting — rocket attacks and terrorism against Jews. BDS is objectively pro-Hamas, and anyone with two eyes and a brain can see that Hamas exists for exactly one purpose, to kill Jews. Really, when you see left-wing students marching with “free Palestine” banners, what do you think that slogan ultimately means? Two words: Dead Jews.

UPDATE II: Associated Press:

The Israeli military says that fighting is continuing in 22 locations in southern Israel 12 hours after Hamas militants carried out a surprise infiltration into the area.
In a statement, the army’s chief spokesman, Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari said “there is no community in southern Israel where we do not have forces.” He said Israel has regained control in some communities but the army is still conducting scans to make sure they are safe.
Hagari also confirmed ongoing hostage situations in two towns — Ofakim and Beeri.
“There are special forces there with senior commanders and live fire fights are going on there,” he said.
Hagari said that Israel was striking targets in Gaza from the air and that ground operations were imminent. He did not elaborate but said an additional four divisions of troops, as well as tanks, were being deployed to the already heavily fortified area.

UPDATE III: John Nolte connects the dots:

The terrorist state of Iran kidnaps five Americans. Biden then chooses the anniversary of September 11, 2023, to pay the terrorist state of Iran a ransom of $6 billion. This ransom payment comes in the form of releasing $6 billion in assets seized from Iran. So, Iran now has $6 billion it didn’t have before, and Iran funds Hamas. And now, less than four weeks after Joe Biden paid that $6 billion, Hamas is flush with enough resources to launch an unprecedented attack on Israel.

Far be it from me to “pounce” or “seize” upon this merely as an excuse to score political points, but can you imagine what Democrats would be saying if the shoe were on the other foot? And, in point of fact, Biden’s policy is being blamed by people who can’t be dismissed as right-wing extremists.

Jake Simons is editor of the Jewish Chronicle. Can’t wait for Biden supporters to smear Simon as a “Nazi,” the way they do all other critics of Biden.
