Default Hamas says war with Israel is only days away.

Hamas says war with Israel is only days away.

February 4, 2018


A London paper reports that Hamas believes an attack by Israel is imminent. Netanyahu responds that Israel “not interested” in war but will defend itself.

By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News

Al Hayat, an Arabic-language London-based newspaper, reported Sunday that the leaders of Hamas in the Gaza Strip are calculating that the chances of war with Israel are “at 95 percent” and assume it could erupt within days.

The paper further said that the military wing of Hamas has declared a state of the highest alert, evacuating its headquarters and various sites in the Strip, such as the border areas, and spreading its armed forces in civilian areas for fear of an Israeli attack. Other Gaza terror groups, including Islamic Jihad, were reportedly preparing in a similar manner.

The possible cover for such an offensive, they claim, could be the biennial Israeli-American Juniper Cobra training exercise, which is set to take place in the coming days. The drill involves thousands of soldiers and will simulate a major conflict in which Israel is attacked with thousands of missiles from the northern and southern borders at once.

Israeli jets have also struck the Strip twice in the last few days. However, this was in retaliation for two rockets fired from Gaza, one on Thursday night that caused alarms to go off in the Ashkelon Regional Council, and one on Friday night, when sirens sounded in the Shaar Hanegev Regional Council. Three Hamas terror targets were hit in response, the IDF said. Two were part of a military facility and one was an observation post.

The seemingly hysterical announcement by Hamas could just be a way to try and gain the world’s attention following the American decision to halve its first contribution of 2018 to the United Nations organization devoted to the Palestinians (UNRWA).

Israel is not known for invading Gaza preemptively, as evidenced by the three previous operations carried out in the Strip. Indeed, since Israel removed Jewish citizens from Gaza in 2005, all military conflicts there have been in response to massive rocket fire and terror attacks instigated by Hamas.

Before his weekly Cabinet meeting Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made it clear that Israel is not interested in a war with Hamas, but will “do whatever is necessary” to defend itself.

Israel should wipe out Hamas and all the terrorist groups in Gaza permanently so that the citizens there could have a future.

It is time for Israel to take it back. It was a horrific mistake to walk away in 2005, and the murders and mayhem since have proven that the mistake needs to be rectified.

No, as long as Hamas doesn't bother Israel, let the fools who voted for them continue to be oppressed. Maybe someday they will have had enough.

When will Hamas and Islamic Jihad NOT trouble Israel? Have you not noticed that they are constantly seeking ways to kill G-ds Chosen People? This is Spiritual Warfare, with Satan being the Commanding General!

While they are at it, why stop at Gaza? Take out Abu Mazen and the PA and then reclaim Judea and Samaria. Stop all the Palestinian foolishness.

... and being lied to by Islamic Jihad and Hamas, true. Of course, they should have known, by now, that their leaders could not be trusted, but they've also been brainwashed to believe that Israel is their eternal enemy!

They are being exploited, as well, with monies received never get past headquarters, and the exploitation is another way in which the "leaders" can blame Israel for their lack of provisions.

You are somewhat glib. Even in established democracy people do not always get what the politicians promised, and sometimes something quite other, like Merkel in Germany for example. In Islam there are rarely free elections, people are intimidated, or worse, and/or told how to vote by the clerics and in Islam people do as they are told. That is why Muslims by and large hate democracy and prefer the 'rule of god'

The citizens were the ones who elected Hamas to begin with, and they would simply fill the void with another similar terroristic anti-Israel government. You're talking about people who have been repeating the same failed strategy for 70 years, so, they never learn.

sounds like a plan... easier said than done... If Hamas is destroyed then ISIS will take its place. The better approach is for Israel to manage a renovation of Gaza so that the people will have a life. This is what will break Hamas. when the people have something to lose then their hold on the Gazans will weaken.

This is exactly what the article says it is, a ploy by Hamas to put the Jew hating world on watch. Then, when they send a flurry of missiles into Israel, and Israel retaliates, the Jew hating world will already be lying before the Israeli response has yet begun.

I hope you don't feel that everyone in the world hates Jews. Many of us respect the Jews and Israel (I'm not Jewish). I would love to see Israel wipe out all of them! They are like cockroaches. An abomination on the earth. I wish Israel and the Jews well.

Hamas has been at war. They are trying to sucker Israel into declaring the same so Hamas can scream to the UN for protection from and aggression toward Israel.
. Shame, the Hamas leaders, their families and property seldom see carnage or damage that the poor followers and pawns see.

Hamas cannot run a peaceful society in Gaza.
Therefore Hamas is desperately looking for war with Israel. A war with Israel would boost the macho image of Hamas.
Most likely Israel has two options:
1. Avoid war with Hamas as long as possible.
2. If Hamas provokes war, there should be no substitute for Israeli victory.

Iran sending missile & rockets to the region for years.

Israel has been preparing harder than any other country for war.

They will remove Lebanon from the map this time. not soft like before.

It will be IRAN's fault no other. est 388 tactical nukes that can be delivered in a triad.
Suggest IRAN look up Israels policy on conditions for using WMD.

In case Hamas initiates a war please tell Bibi its OK to respond and pull another Golda defeat or attack them before, not after.

It's nice to win. We almost lost in '73 and we would not have a nation because Levi Eshkol could not give the order to attack in '67.

What was the last war we won? Oh yes. Thanks Sharon for '73.

I have a much cheaper solution to the tunnels. I found it accidentally trying to kill some rats that had tunnels all over an old foundation. I poured some gasoline in the tunnel and lit it. The whole thing lifted up about 4" then settled back down about 8". No more rats!
Just do that on a bigger scale, drill into a terror tunnel pour about 50 gallons of gas in then light it. No more rats. :)

these are not nuclear bombs.. they cover a radius of about 3 kms , underground activity like tunnels and underground storage facilities..

The most dangerous risk/damage to Israel if they use the MOAB is political, not physical. ISIS, like the Xian fundamentalists, welcome the prospect of a doomsday scenario and are willing to accept their defeat as long as everyone else is defeated/destroyed in the process.

somehow the tunnels have to be imploded, i guess the other alternative would be to hire james bond 007 to do the job..

Yes but that is only a tactical response when a strategic blow is needed. That, in turn, is difficult when the enemy counts their own total destruction as a win as long as Israel is destroyed as well.

What is needed is a way to make ISIS and the other fundies doubt their own religious fantasies but that would have to grow out of their own beliefs.

Off goes the uniforms and on goes the civilian clothes.

Out goes the worshipers in the mosques and in goes the weapons.

I’m sure Hamas is fortifying hospitals and clinics with many offensive weapons and civilians to guard the rockets.

Fake journalists from around the world are standing in line waiting to catch an Israeli precision weapon targeting Hamas rockets guarded by civilians.
