Jerusalem - Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said that no country in the world would accept a situation in which rockets are fired at its citizens, saying that Israel will not accept such a situation, speaking Wednesday night.

“Hamas and the other terror organizations chose to escalate its attacks in recent days,” Netanyahu said. “Israel has sent Hamas a clear message that it is prepared to defend its citizens.”

“Hamas is purposely shooting at civilians, and hides behind its own civilians. We avoid striking civilians,” he added, stating that Israel is sending an “unequivocal message” that Israeli citizens will not be hostage to terrorist missile fire and cross-border attacks.

“Our enemies seek to wipe us off the face of the earth,” the prime minister stated.

 Nov 14, 2012 at 02:15 PM Where was Netanyahu on this issue until now? Says:

Obviously every country has a right to defend it's people being shot at, daily!

But the reason it came to this is because Israel has no fought back until now.

Apparently Netnayahu feels that Israel has no reason to defend it's self if only 100 rockets per day hit Israel.

But when it escalates to 200 Rockets per day, NOW Netanyahu reminded himself that Jews have a right not to be shot at.

What Netanyahu is in effect saying TODAY is that he will not fight back and Natnyahu WILL allow Jewish blood to be spilled Chas Vesholom, provided that Hamas does not kill to many people per day.

It's wrong to say "the us allowed it".

It's no one fault except Israel's for them not putting their foot down.

Please remember that the IDF has self restraint. There are times that the IDF commanders send their men into hand to hand combat, rather than bomb from above, to reduce civilian casualties on the enemy side. This enemy has little regard for the life of even its own women and children! Today, the IDF was able to extinguish the evil Jabari with little collateral damage. That was a blow to the enemy. The IDF bides its time and strikes when it can do the greatest good. Hashem yeracheim.

You are a fear mongering evangelicist for the improper cause. Netanyahu while maybe not the exact perfection of his office is a competant leader.

To all the armchair generals. Not.
HaRosh Memshala served the IDF with honor. His brother died serving the IDF leading his soldiers the old fashioned way ; commanding officer goes in infront of his troops. Others of mishpachas Netanyahu have also served valiantly.
If have have not "been there" you don't understand.
Put your life on the line for something you believe in then you can comment about how real men get the job done.

#2 is referring to the 20,000,000 ilegal immegrants (undocument citizens, as the libs would call them)

Exactly. I'll add that if it was the US getting pelted day after day by rockets, even (yes, EVEN) Obama would do something. But the UN (& presumably, Obama supports them in this) is "concerned" that Israel takes out a mastermind terrorist. Well, we all know Obama preaches restraint when it comes to Israel but gives a very lukewarm "naughty, naughty" to Hamas & the other Arab scum.
