After sustaining a week’s worth of Hamas missiles, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made the decision to fight back. On Friday, Netanyahu sent ground troops into Gaza to wipe out the terrorists.
It’s refreshing to see a leader who doesn’t back down to thugs.
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) sent ground troops into Gaza early Friday morning local time, in an effort to uproot Palestinian terrorists who have fired nearly 2,000 rockets at Israeli civilians over the past several days.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted a video message, vowing to restore “quiet and security to the State of Israel.” He added: “The last word was not been said, and this operation will continue as long as necessary.” That may have been a warning to the international community, including the United Nations, not to intervene until Hamas had been defeated.
Explosions were seen over Gaza as Israel launched a massive wave of airstrikes against Hamas targets there.
Personally, I think they should wipe out everyone in the Gaza Strip, then retake it as their own. The “Palestinians” will never stop trying to kill Israelis, so Israel might as well get it over with and steamroll the entire region.
UPDATE: The Israelis are freakin’ awesome!
