    So now 'MURICA will send them loads of weapons and tactical support and unlike Ukraine, not one fucking Republican will bitch about this. As for Israel, expect a all-out killing spree on every Humas whose lungs are still drawing in air.

      I agree with the GOP-hypocrisy point (along with the fact that the US is finally supporting a competent even superior ally that is doing all the dying and asking for only ammo as opposed to Vietnam/Afghanistan/Iraq where we did a lot of the dying supporting corrupt cowards that often ran away)...


      But, where have you been? Israel is sending US weapons now! Albeit we're paying for it...

      Anyway you slice it for the average Israeli fighter/reservist, Netanyahu's regime should be burned down for what is really a massive intelligence failure, possibly even a LIHOP one...

        The "lame stream libtard media" is saying this attack comes on the 50th anniversary of the Yom Kippur War. This was more than an intelligence failure, it was pure laziness on Israel part. A attack such as this (where Humans took over a Israel military base completely) which had to have been planned for months if not year(s) and not one person in Mossad seem to not have bothered to pay a shred of attention to it. Either that, or Humas did not like Ben Shapiro's review of Barbie.

        One of the two.

          Or Nut-and-Yahoo knew something was happening and "Let It Happen On Purpose" to deflect the vast disaffection of his regime by Israeli centrists and leftists that are in the military under conscription, but the most right wing segment of Israeli Jewish society's Orthodox members don't have to serve in the military...

          Hamas surprise attack out of Gaza stuns Israel and leaves hundreds dead in fighting, retaliation
          Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has stated Israel is now at “war” with militant group Hamas after a massive show of force that caught Israel off-guard on a major holiday. (Oct. 7)

          JERUSALEM (AP) — Backed by a barrage of rockets, dozens of Hamas militants broke out of the blockaded Gaza Strip and into nearby Israeli towns, killing dozens and abducting others in an unprecedented surprise early morning attack during a major Jewish holiday Saturday. A stunned Israel launched airstrikes in Gaza, with its prime minister saying the country is now at war with Hamas and vowing to inflict an “unprecedented price.”

          In an assault of startling breadth, Hamas gunmen rolled into as many as 22 locations outside the Gaza Strip, including towns and other communities as far as 15 miles (24 kilometers) from the Gaza border. In some places, they roamed for hours, gunning down civilians and soldiers as Israel’s military scrambled to muster a response. Gunbattles continued well after nightfall, and militants held hostages in standoffs in two towns and occupied a police station in a third.

          Israeli media, citing rescue service officials, said at least 250 people were killed and 1,500 wounded, making it the deadliest attack in Israel in decades. At least 232 people in the Gaza Strip have been killed and at least 1,700 wounded in Israeli strikes, the Palestinian Health Ministry said. Hamas fighters took an unknown number of civilians and soldiers captive into Gaza, a deeply sensitive issue for Israel, in harrowing scenes posted on social media videos.

          The conflict threatened to escalate to an even deadlier stage with Israel’s vows of greater retaliation. Previous conflicts between Israel and Gaza’s Hamas rulers brought widespread death and destruction in Gaza and days of rocket fire on Israeli towns. The situation is potentially more volatile now, with Israel’s far-right government stung by the security breach and with Palestinians in despair over a never-ending occupation in the West Bank and suffocating blockade of Gaza.

            The Israeli death toll is rising and is over 300. A grisly and horrific day by any standard...

              Shit's been going on forever.

              Israel and Palestine have no real desire to settle their differences, make peace with one another, begin the process of going forward in a peaceful co-existence and - as best as they could - putting the past behind them.

              Just an endless series of conflicts and an endless series of accusations - "[Israel/Palestine] started it first! [The other country] is more to blame! [The other country] is engaged in terrorism" - and the only difference I can effectively see is that Palestine doesn't have as effective a political lobby here in the United Sates as Israel does.

              Sun rose in East? Check.

              Dog bit Man somewhere? Check.

              Israel and Palestine fighting? Check.

              I dunno...maybe take away Israel's nukes, wall both countries in and let 'em duke it out once and for all against each other, rather than letting them try to via proxy drag the rest of the world into their hatred?
              Scramby eggs and bacon.

                Usually by the end the Israelis kill at least 10 times as many Palestinians.

                  From "The Times of Israel".... NuttyYahoo Propped Up Hamas For Years.

                  timesofisrael.com
                  For years, Netanyahu propped up Hamas. Now it’s blown up in our faces
                  By Tal Schneider Today, 3:58 pm 85 Edit




                  For years, the various governments led by Benjamin Netanyahu took an approach that divided power between the Gaza Strip and the West Bank — bringing Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to his knees while making moves that propped up the Hamas terror group.

                  The idea was to prevent Abbas — or anyone else in the Palestinian Authority’s West Bank government — from advancing toward the establishment of a Palestinian state.

                  Thus, amid this bid to impair Abbas, Hamas was upgraded from a mere terror group to an organization with which Israel held indirect negotiations via Egypt, and one that was allowed to receive infusions of cash from abroad.

                  Hamas was also included in discussions about increasing the number of work permits Israel granted to Gazan laborers, which kept money flowing into Gaza, meaning food for families and the ability to purchase basic products.

                  Israeli officials said these permits, which allow Gazan laborers to earn higher salaries than they would in the enclave, were a powerful tool to help preserve calm.

                  Toward the end of Netanyahu’s fifth government in 2021, approximately 2,000-3,000 work permits were issued to Gazans. This number climbed to 5,000 and, during the Bennett-Lapid government, rose sharply to 10,000.

                  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu leads a government conference at the Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem on September 27, 2023. (Chaim Goldberg/Flash90)

                  Since Netanyahu returned to power in January 2023, the number of work permits has soared to nearly 20,000.

                  Additionally, since 2014, Netanyahu-led governments have practically turned a blind eye to the incendiary balloons and rocket fire from Gaza.

                  Meanwhile, Israel has allowed suitcases holding millions in Qatari cash to enter Gaza through its crossings since 2018, in order to maintain its fragile ceasefire with the Hamas rulers of the Strip.

                  Most of the time, Israeli policy was to treat the Palestinian Authority as a burden and Hamas as an asset. Far-right MK Bezalel Smotrich, now the finance minister in the hardline government and leader of the Religious Zionism party, said so himself in 2015.

                  According to various reports, Netanyahu made a similar point at a Likud faction meeting in early 2018, when he was quoted as saying that those who oppose a Palestinian state should support the transfer of funds to Gaza, because maintaining the separation between the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and Hamas in Gaza would prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state.

                  While Netanyahu does not make these kind of statements publicly or officially, his words are in line with the policy that he implemented.

                  The same messaging was repeated by right-wing commentators, who may have received briefings on the matter or talked to Likud higher-ups and understood the message.

                  Bolstered by this policy, Hamas grew stronger and stronger until Saturday, Israel’s “Pearl Harbor,” the bloodiest day in its history — when terrorists crossed the border, slaughtered hundreds of Israelis and kidnapped an unknown number under the cover of thousands of rockets fired at towns throughout the country’s south and center.

                  The country has known attacks and wars, but never on such a scale in a single morning.

                  One thing is clear: The concept of indirectly strengthening Hamas — while tolerating sporadic attacks and minor military operations every few years — went up in smoke Saturday.

                  Just a few days ago, Assaf Pozilov, a reporter for the Kan public broadcaster, tweeted the following: “The Islamic Jihad organization has started a noisy exercise very close to the border, in which they practiced launching missiles, breaking into Israel and kidnapping soldiers.”

                  The difference between Islamic Jihad and Hamas doesn’t matter much at this point. As far as the State of Israel is concerned, the territory is under the control of Hamas, and it is responsible for all the training and activities there.

                  Hamas became stronger and used the auspices of peace that Israelis so longed for as cover for its training, and hundreds of Israelis have paid with their lives for this massive omission.

                  The terror inflicted on the civilian population in Israel is so enormous that the wounds from it will not heal for years, a challenge compounded by the dozens abducted into Gaza.

                  Judging by the way Netanyahu has managed Gaza in the last 13 years, it is not certain that there will be a clear policy going forward.

                    That may be true, but there is some very horrifying and graphic footage coming out of this. Apparently, there was a very bad music festival going on the border near Gaza (the kind Kristy would love), It's where the footage of women being kidnapped and probably abused are from. In any case Hamas cunts just hosed down and murdered people wholesale in their tents. There's also lots of grisly pics of old people that were summarily executed, and random cars being shot up In the end this is one of the fucking dumbest things Hamas could have done and will alienate any Western left sympathy. I think they also will eventually end the regime of their great Israeli benefactor and counterpoint in Nut-&-Yahoo, because once things are settled, a large part of the IDF is coming after him for allowing this...

                    But as usual, the little people and innocents will die the most on both sides....

                      I saw something that there was a soccer game going on in Tehran where Palestinian flags were hoisted and most of the crowd told them to "shove those up your ass!" Some of the flag holders were beaten and even many Iranians are expressing sympathy for Israel online...

                            Still on a plus point I'm sure the hostages will appreciate that every cloud has a silver lining...

                            Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel explained on Fox News Saturday how GOP presidential candidates could respond to Hamas militants’ unprecedented, surprise attack on Israel.

                            “I think this is a great opportunity for our candidates to contrast where Republicans have stood with Israel ― time and time again ― and Joe Biden has been weak,” McDaniel said.
