Multiple Terrorist Attacks in Israel

Multiple Terrorist Attacks in Israel

There were a series of coordinated terrorist attacks in Israel overnight (our time, noon Israeli time).  At least six people were killed, and the attacks apparently emanated, at least in part, from Egyptian territory.

Israel Matzav is gathering the latest information.


The Israel Defense Forces reports that the attacks started from Gaza, although as Israel Matzav reports, the attacks left Gaza into Egypt and then infiltrated Israel through the mostly unfenced Israel-Egyptian border.

More bloggers in Israel (a good source for what local news is reporting, not just the foreign or English press:  Anne’s Opinions, The Muqata, Israelly Cool.

Thanks to commenter drozz for pointing out the juxtaposition of the prior post headline Obama Demands Israel Apologize To Islamist Erdogan For Stopping Terror Flotilla…Or Else! with this post headline.  The prior post was prescheduled (who knew something would happen overnight?).

I’ve been following this from Israel Matzav since before your post and once again find no words to express my horror so I must take a break for a while….it won’t be to play golf.

    “….it won’t be to play golf.”

    So, UN-presidential of you, Joy. Don’t tell me … you won’t be calling for Israel to apologize, either. Brazenly un-presidential.

Seven now confirmed dead. Among them children ages 4 and 6 and soldiers. Among the other casualties, the tent protests.

[…] #4: The Jawa Report, Le·gal In·sur·rec· tion are now covering and this is now a Memeorandum […]

Quick Reax: These attacks were made possible by “Arab Spring,” as it resulted in lawlessness in Egypt’s Eastern reaches and removed a government that despite being too slow to reform on its own, was committed to keeping the peace and fighting terrorist groups. Proposed name for incident: The Tahrir Terrorist Attacks

CORRECTION TO EARLIER COMMENT: Children may have been wounded not killed.

These attacks fall in line with the predictions earlier this summer that the Islamist terrorists in Gaza and Eygpt were going to break out openly and start a war with Israel, to begin in Sept.

I was befuddled as to why Obama was telling Israel to apologize yesterday. The timing felt off. The Obama Administration and State Dept are either imbeciles or in bed with The Muslim Brotherhood.

My last hope is with Israel. But this horrible news is no surprise to alot of us this morning.

    “The Obama Administration and State Dept are either imbeciles or in bed with The Muslim Brotherhood.”. Both and.

Glenn Beck has been saying this was going to happen. He is there now for the Restoring Courage Rally on Sunday. Joe Lieberman, and various congressmen were planning to go. Glenn had Joe Walsh on his show this morning, and he said that John Boehner told republicans not to attend this rally for Israel.

Just heard on Israel Radio that there was another shooting while the Chief of Staff and Defense Minister were giving briefings. One person seriously hurt. I’ve updated my post (thanks for linking, Professor). I’ll update again if there is more news.

“A dolt in the room.”

I’m sure after demanding an apology from Israel to Erdogan … this dolt is so obtuse he could never comprehend that maybe his tough approach with Israel (aka our ally and friend) has emboldened Islamists in Israel’s midst.

“World opinion” and an “international community” are chimeras.

Where is the outcry on the slaughter in Syria? Now, if Israel responds in self-defense with any collateral damage, whatsoever, (Israel must be perfect in its self-defense, don’t ya know), there will be a huge outcry from the usual suspects, and it will be dressed up as “world opinion.”

We have “Media Matters for America.” Why don’t these dolts all get together and form a “United Nations Matters for Israel.”

One of these days, Israel has to say, “Go piss off,” to “world opinion,” and go a little disproportionate, if for no other reason than to show that all previous claims of “disproportionality” were nonsense.

With the passage of time, terrorists will have access to increasingly advanced tecnology. It’s either Israel or the terrorists. There is no in between. The terrorists will not stop until Israel is wiped off the map.

Quelle surprise! It’s always the immediate reaction to concessions ( and calls to apologize.

…..I personally can’t believe the Jews tolerate
so much of the Arabs aggrevation.

If I were bibi…. I’d be waging total warfare against the Arab culture. I’d know they’d never accept a jewish state.
and after attempting for the last 70 yrs …which has gotten nowhere… I’d just implement a strategy of no peace treaties once attacked, the attackers just get conquered and banished.

I hear tell that a rocket was fired from Egypt. Word to Israel: beat the crap outta them and take back the frickin’ Sinai.

YourMaster, you hit it right on the head there. That’s what Israel should do in addition to this: for every rocket and terrorist attack, a mile of land reverts to Israel, all the property on it gets demolished, and 1,000 Arabs lose Israeli citizenship and get deported from Israel.
