Israeli soldier kidnapped

There is much we don’t know but here is what we do.

An hour and a half into the ceasefire this morning a suicide bomber emerged from one of the terror tunnels in southern Gaza and blew himself up among our troops. Two Israeli soldiers were killed and several wounded. More terrorists then quickly arrived and kidnapped Hadar Goldin.

It was a coordinated attack. Terrorists nearby fired a barrage of rockets into Israel as a distraction for the bomber to be able to approach.

We don’t know if he is alive, dead, or how badly wounded. We do know we are going to get him back even if, as our former defense minister said, we have to take Gaza apart brick by brick.

    Do you have a feel for the public mod now?

      Yeah, check out the interview Amos Oz, one of the folks most critical of Israeli policy re: Palestinians gave, and this was before the kidnapping:

      Amoz Oz: I would like to begin the interview in a very unusal way: by presenting one or two questions to your readers and listeners. May I do that?

      Deutsche Welle: Go ahead!

      Question 1: What would you do if your neighbor across the street sits down on the balcony, puts his little boy on his lap and starts shooting machine gun fire into your nursery?

      Question 2: What would you do if your neighbor across the street digs a tunnel from his nursery to your nursery in order to blow up your home or in order to kidnap your family?

      With these two questions I pass the interview to you.

    Check this out. Your usual lying,corrupt journalist trying to make the point that the evil Israelis are so unfair, trying to keep farmers from their fields (while not mentioning the tons of food sent by Israel to Gaza every day). Usual evil from France 24.

      Heh yeah I’ve been tweeting that one. He’s reporting from outside a UN refuge facility and the Hamas rockets going off right next to him had him hitting the ground. Surprised his hair wasn’t white when he got back up. If he had the sense to then get the hell out of there, everyone else should as well.

    WHEN is Israel not only going to wipe out (kill) all the Hamas terrorists and politicians but especially expulse the entire population of Gaza? If Israel does not do such an expulsion FOREVER, get ready for a repeat ad infinitum of the past decades of rockets attacks on Israel by Hamas and company!

    Now, may be I can promote my “project parking lot with seaview” again. As we all know, everywhere in the world parking close to the beach is at a premium. Now there is the opportunity to create a nice big parking lot close to Gaza beach, it could have room for about half of all cars in Israel.

    The project could be realized this way: 1) No more “cease fires” or such nonsense. 2) Every day on which the kidnapped soldier is not returned to Israel unharmed, one building in the Gaza strip will be completely leveled. It is up to IDF Air Force to choose the building. 3) Every day a missile hits Israeli soil, an additional building in Gaza is leveled. 3) Every day any kind of hostility emanates from Gaza will mean a day without power or water from Israel to Gaza.

    Let’s see how long it takes to either return the soldier or to create the parking lot.

    And if people in the West Bank are unhappy… Ben Gurion airport is at the limit of capacity. A new, second big airport for Israel is needed. How about somewhere north of Jerusalem. There is an area called Ramallah which, after some ground preparation by the trusty landscaping firm “IDF Air Force”, could provide a huge open space…

      LOL, Sir John you are so bad. But seriously options 1 and 2 suggested above, I’m up with that except in terms of the rockets launched, –not just one building, that is far too few.
