Hello PETA?: Hamas Attacks Israeli Soldiers with Explosive Donkey

You can’t make this stuff up and it just goes to show how obscenely cruel, inhumane, and morally depraved Hamas is.

From the IDF blog:
“On the evening of July 18, IDF forces operating in the Rafah area spotted an explosives-laden donkey approaching their position. The soldiers opened fire, causing the explosives to detonate.

Sending an animal to its death to serve terrorist purposes may seem shocking, but last night certainly wasn’t the first time Palestinian terrorists adopted this despicable tactic.”

They’ve used donkeys that they loaded down with explosives and then remotely detonated the bombs and they’ve strapped bombs on dogs –pets that they confiscated from their owners. You can read more instances on the IDF blog linked above.

    Horrible. Absolutely horrible and vile.

    It is abosulety shocking to read this!!!
    Are You SERIOUS?!!!
    if you think using animals for bombing purposes is wrong and horrible (Though i dont believe it and cant trust the resource itself!), then what you do think about killing over 300 innocent civilians and destroying their homes!

    think about it for one second and figure out who’s being Horribly terrorist !!!

    • tddpirate says :

      Karen, where were you when more than 1000 civilians were killed in a series of suicide bombings during 2000-2003 (the so-called Second Intifada)?
      Or do they not count only because most of them were Jews living in Israel?

      • Roba says :

        So what? Today only 100 civilians died (shahadeh) because of you! Where are you now!?? Do you want us to see Israel killing us and do nothing?? Though it’s unbalanced war, Israel has everything while we have nothing more than our believe in Allah and loyal individuals ..
        However, it’s OUR COUNTRY, and you know that right? We have all the right to fight till death to take it back🙂

        • Lynne says :

          Roba, why not make peace and live as neighbors? Is that not an option? You know, the world is criss-crossed with borders and each one of those borders was created and settled by a war. If you look at the history of Europe and maps of the borders over time, you will see that this is true. The US took over the land from the American Indians, and while I truly feel that was wrong, it is over and nothing can be done now but to try to make things right for the American Indians. Asia, Australia, the entire world….Gaza is no different, except for fanaticism and bad decisions by the people of Gaza who put Hamas in power instead of taking the opportunity after Israel willingly left every square inch of Gaza for them, leaving viable businesses for then….instead they chose terrorism (and craziness, frankly).
          The IDF uses every means possible to keep civilians in Gaza from harm. In absolute contrast, Hamas aims every rocket at civilians in Israel. I love the videos from Egypt where they really spell out the truth about Hamas’ leadership.

          • Roba says :

            Is not an option

          • Karen says :

            We dont see this as an option! as everyone knows the truth about jews many years ago and they simply choose the holy land of Palestine to live in as intruders. However, this can be considered as an option, to live in peace together, but when we go back and we rethink about what IDF is doing to Civilians (not only recently, but from 1948), we simply ignore the option that you aiming to happen.
            and please dont pretend that IDF is keeping People of Gaza away from any harm beacuase it is totally the opposite and you know it! you know that this is the normal reaction of Israel after Hamas has killed almost 20 soldiers ( which is nothing compared to the over 400 civilans were died (shahada) from the beginning of this war),

            BUT WAIT! Isn’t Hamas have the right or let say the duty to defend itself and its land like Israel, as the US government has stated earlier?

            p.s. Try to be democratic in thinking and stop being selfish! and after all, in this unbalanced war, we can clearly see who’s being blamed for its crucial inhuman acts!

            kind regards

    Karen, it is untrue that the majority of those killed are civilians. You can see the breakdown by age and gender from the information released by Al Jazeera here: http://www.israellycool.com/2014/07/20/analysis-of-gazans-killed-so-far-in-operation-protective-edge/ There are nice charts to look at and more than 80% of those killed are males, with over half of the males in the 18-28 age group and more than 60 percent of them in the 18-45 combatant age group.

    By the way, why aren’t Palestinians and those protesting the Gaza op (which Hamas instigated) protesting the more than 20,000 Palestinians in Syria that have been killed?

    • Lynne says :

      That is a good question, and the answer is that they don’t give a damn.

    • Karen says :

      very funny that the source you have inserted is untrusted and its not true! I do trust Aljazeera analysis of any issue because it is simply taking the side of the TRUTH!. but this one is completely wrong. check it again and try to read from other ISRAELI blogs, you will understand more and it might widen your scope of thinking! – a friendly advice:)

      and by the way, aren’t men considered from the majority of the civilians or what? i personally dont see what is the issue you pointing to! at the end of the day, they’re innocent people whom targeted by IDF because they have gone crazy after the fallen of their several soldiers by the Hamas which is honestly i see it as a major victory!

      who said that we dont gave a damn about the other Palestinians which has been killed in Syria or the previous generations that have been destroyed for more than 66 years by ISRAEL?!!! I think your missing the whole picture!

      and as i said, try to widen you knowledge beyond reading from Israeli blogs! i think you will know better information and may clarify the truth for you.

      • Lynne says :

        Karen, Hamas has sent a thousand rockets into Israel, all aimed at civilians. You do not seem to have an answer for that. The death toll from the rockets is as low as it is because the government has provided shelters and encourages people to use them. Hamas asks its citizens to stay in harm’s way, and in some cases, forces them to stay. Also, there are no rockets and weapons hidden among the residential areas of Israel. There are military areas and Hamas knows this, but chooses as its targets the civilians in Israel. Hamas is absolutely vile, and just because they are also STUPID and INEPT does not absolve them of their attempt to kill as many Israeli civilians as possible. They are mostly just too bungling to do it, so they also resort to slashing the throats of children and infants, which they are more adept at doing.
        There is something seriously wrong with people’s reasoning if they do not see the difference. The IDF could not be blamed if they flattened all of Gaza, as the Europeans and Allies did in Dresden and other places in WWII, but the IDF does not do that: They make a super human effort to avoid harm to civilians. The people in Gaza just need to move away from danger, just temporarily, for short time.

    Those who send their own children with explosives strapped around their waists to blow up some Jews, will not spare a donkey either. ‘Nuff said

    • Lynne says :

      Sir John, yes. It’s hard for us to even imagine such depravity, but routine for Hamas.

      • Karen says :

        how funny each one of us think similarly about the side they support! LOL
        I personally find Israel depravity and their acts towards Gaza is considered inhuamn and crucial. what Hamas is doing is only a right of defend their rights!

        • Lynne says :

          Karen, you have all the answers! Thank goodness. So please share your solutions to the conflict with us.
          Exactly are those acts of depravity to Gaza? Why did the people of Gaza choose Hamas after the Israelis left all of Gaza for them as a step towards peace, and made many offers of assistance to the people there, left businesses for them, and that is a matter of record. What was the purpose of that reaction? I have friends from Gaza (most or all actually have left Gaza) and they are totally anti-Hamas!!!
          Go and read all the offers of peace made by Israel to the Palestinian people. The offers are all generous with many additions to offer beyond even what the Palestinians asked for. As it is, Israel provides all kinds of things for Gaza free of charge, like electricity and water which are crucial.
          All I ask is that you think critically and independently after gathering facts from reliable sources.

          • Karen says :

            I wasn’t planning to post a reply on what you said as I feel from this blog that there is much more than just discussing any issue. I think there is a huge gap in thinking between us and you – Jew of Israel. even if i brought all the evidence and facts (which i have them ready) you will never understand and we will never agree upon anything!.

            i take this quote of your previous comment: “As it is, Israel provides all kinds of things for Gaza free of charge, like electricity and water which are crucial”, well, that is very kind of you to provide us water from our lands which is known that its taken from the West Bank. stop being cynical !

    • Karen says :

      first of all, it sound tacky how you point it out to the whole thing!.Accodring to the major pillars in Islam, this is called Jihad! and this absolutely not considered as suicide as many people think about it, especially if this is done to enemies such as Israel (not because of the difference in religion, but referring to the whole concept of occupation of the Palestinian lands which is their right to defend).

      check out this website to understand more about Jihad.

      I have one more issue that I need you all clarify to me if you can.
      if you think using explosive donkeys by Hamas to hit IDFs is inhauman and unaccepted, then give me one single reason why IDF uses internationally BANNED WEAPONS to kill civilians?

      one reason only!

      • Lynne says :

        Karen, you don’t seem to know what you are talking about. If you want to see REAL INHUMANITY just take a look at what the Syrians are going through, the people of Iraq because of conflict and the ISIS, the Kurds in Turkey (the Armenians did not fare too well in treatment by the Turks, but they don’t like that mentioned). Ask the relatives of those tragically killed in the Malaysian plane shot down by the Pro-Russian separatists about inhumanity and war on innocent people. Those are crimes. The IDF tries to avoid harm to civilians and no other army takes such strict measures. Hamas certainly does not and that cannot be denied or their actions excused in anyway. They will not agree to any form of peace that leaves Jews alive, not only in Israel but in the entire world, and their goal is the destruction of Israel. Period. No one can make peace with fanatical crazy people.

        • roba says :

          And what Isreal is doing now is not a crime? Did you watch the news today?

          Here you go .. ” ISREAL SHELLED A HOSPITAL IN GAZA, KILLED 5 PEOPLE AND WOUNDED AT LEAST 70 ”

          What do you think about this? for the sake of God, don’t tell me Hamas hides behind them, stop laying to yourself and give me another excuse!

          Where do you want these people to go to be safe? Isreal is shelling even hospitals and schools? Isreal is shelling randomly! they don’t want to kill Hamas only! they want to take OUR LAND and destroy Palestinians ( for sure when they killed 15 members of the same family)!! your talking about peace? when Isreal can pick and choose which laws/rights to follow and which to ignore, there is no peace! (already this is not an option)

          However, just let Isreal leave our country, and Palestinians will take care of the other things, don’t worry!

            by the way, unfortunately i cant do anything to help them more than praying and trying to let the world know at least our point of view ( as Palestinians) .. and finally in this blog we are her to come up with a satisfied point among this without insulting or cursing each other ..

  5. Lynne says :

    Roba, first of all, thank you for your willingness to pray for peace. I don’t know what else to say to you other than to remind you that Israel volunteered and willingly left Gaza years ago, left businesses behind for the Palestinians, promised assistance and financial help with those businesses. The Jews living in Gaza did not want to go…the IDF made them leave, carrying them out in some cases, forcing them to go FOR WHAT THEY THOUGHT WAS THE GREATER GOOD WHICH WAS A STEP TOWARD PEACE AND MUTUAL RESPECT. I wish that you could have been in Israel yourself at that time; you would have seen an outpouring of goodwill by the Israelis (most of them) towards the people in Gaza. So…your wish is for Israel to “just let Israel leave our country and Palestinians will take care of the other things”. I wish that all Palestinians at that time shared your feelings and opinions, because Israel was OUT and was ready to let Palestinians handle things and they made also the offer of help if needed. You know, Palestinians very, very often receive excellent medical care in Israel, and electricity and water from Israel, and frankly the crossings are open more on the Israel border than with Egypt and that is true for a very long time. So, I am at a loss as to what other signs of goodwill Israel can show. I believe that Israelis would welcome a thoughtful proposal for an end to the conflict and is ready to take steps on their part to do their part to make it work. I do know that the Palestinian people should LOOK HARD AT HAMAS AND ITS LEADERS RIGHT NOW AND SEE IF THEY LIKE WHAT THEY ARE SEEING. I suspect that if you are honest with yourself, you will not like what you see.
    I believe that in spite of our seeing things very differently, you and I share the wish for goodwill, good intentions and mutual respect…and peaceful resolution of the conflict. Keep up with those prayers for peace; they are appreciated.
