    I do wonder…why do the Israelis have “Freedom Fighters”, and everyone else has “Terrorists”?
    Kind of like the difference between “Intelligence Operatives”, and “Spies”, I guess.

    Israel goes out of it’s way to not kill civilians. The radical Muslim terrorist go out of their way to kill civilians and hide among the general population so as to make sure their death rate is as high as they can make it. And if it is not high enough they make it up. That sir is just one of the differences. Or how about a freedom fighter does not go into someone else land and demand a piece of it.

    Uh…where did the country of israel come from? Always thought they went in and took it.

    Not complaining, that’s how my country came into being also, but honesty helps understanding.

    You clearly have never been to Palestine.

    to bad Israel really sucks at their job if its not to kill civilians, considering that for every militant (16 total) nearly 10 civilians died (132) and 100 somewhat civilians injured (1000-3000 depending on media)

    A more accurate representation would be the folks in Gaza being in a fish bowl, lobbing rocks, while Israel has sophisticated modern weapons, and an electroshock rod, stuck in the bowl.


    “Iron dome” is proving pretty successful, and just one more example of the difference in both offensive, and defensive capabilities.


    Also interesting how the “right” keeps trying to blame Iran for sending equipment to Hamas, while WE send more money for Iron Dome, and many other weapons, to Israel, and ignore that they are the only nuclear armed force in the Middle East.

    Iran confirmed two days ago, they have sent technologic information to Hamas in order to build long range FAJR-5 rockets, to hit Tel Aviv.

    “Gaza is under siege,so we cannot help them. The Fajr-5 missles have not been shipped from Iran. It’s technology has been transferred and(the missiles are)being produced quickly” the head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Gen.Mohammad Ali Jafari was quoted as saying by the semiofficial ISNA news agency on Wednesday. Iran’s lawmaker,Ali Larijani proudly confirmed they are financing Hamas and supplying military aid to give the Palestinians a strategic source of power.

    The Fajr-5 rocket has a 75 kilometer range, exceeding the GRAD rocket(20km range),QASSAM rocket(17.7km and heavy mortars(9.7km range). So Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, are now at risk, and previously were felt to be safe.

    Sorry, but mortar shells are NON-DISCRIMINATORY!
    You get hit by shrapnel, you get wounded, or you DIE! Soldier, civilian, child, old person…WHATEVER!
    Same for rocket warheads.

    So far it looks like not such a good outcome for Israel, but they did get to test their missile defense system, and maybe that was the whole point.

    @masterskrain

    Winners can give themselves any label they want, and so choose affirmative labels like ‘freedom fighter.’


    Losers must accept whatever disparaging label the winners impose on them, like ‘terrorist’ or ‘war criminal’.

    The Egyptian border opening potentially could supply more Iranian arms,depending on Egypt’s sense of controlling its border with Gaza.

    The initial funding and development of the Iron Dome system was provided and undertaken by Israel. This allowed for the deployment of the first two Iron Dome systems. Subsequently, funding for an additional eight Iron Dome systems—along with funding for a supply of interception missiles—is currently being provided by the United States, with two of these additional systems having been delivered by 2012. Funding for the production and deployment of these additional Iron Dome batteries and interceptor missiles was approved by the United States Congress, after being requested by President Obama in 2010.
