Israel defense minister: Islamic Jihad behind Gaza flare-up

by AP News
May 27, 2015

Israel’s defense minister is blaming Islamic Jihad — a smaller Palestinian militant group in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip — for the latest rocket fired at Israel that drew retaliatory airstrikes overnight.

Moshe Yaalon says the airstrikes targeted both Islamic Jihad and Hamas sites in Gaza early on Wednesday, after Islamic Jihad fired a rocket toward southern Israel late on Tuesday night.

There was no immediate comment from Gaza and no Palestinian group claimed responsibility for the attack. The military says it carried out four airstrikes, with no casualties reported.

Israel holds Hamas responsible for any attacks from Gaza.

    It makes me sick when some one writes that Israel is trying to get us to fight their war. Israel is fully capable of fighting their own battles and are pressured by the US to wait, and for what, the Hamas will never let Israel rest they are bound and determined to completely wipe Israel off the map and Israel knows this too. If we had a leader here in the USA who would back our strongest ally Israel would take care of the Hamas pronto. All these terrorist know is strength and if you don’t show it they think you are weak. Obama if he was any leader at all. he would tell the Hamas that Israel is our ally and anything you do to them you do to us, this would stop them on a dime. God bless Israel and God please bless America again. Help us get rid of the corrupt politicians and vote in God fearing and moral leaders. meh

    Just as the US wants Iraq to fight for itself it is time for Israel to stop trying to get the US to fight this one

      We should stand by our friends and allies like Israel, do whatever it takes to defend them..
      iraq is not our friend

      1. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

        WIth the behavior of the Prime Minister first one must strongly question who are our friends and allies? Say what you will about President Obama protocol was terribly violated and at this point Israel is to blame for anything negative that happens

        1. Luke says:

          I hardly think it is Israel’s fault that the illegal alien in the WH is a liar and favors Israel’s enemies. Things are just going to get worse until we remove that mooslim from the WH..

          1. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

            You should have stopped with you hardly think . That at least would have been accurate. If you had half a brain you would realize you have long ago lost that remove him stupidity and you would try to find a viable candidate for the Presidency and you would rid yourselves of the clowns who think they have a chance. By the way hatred abd bigotry only blind you as much as masturbation which they actually are. They are mental masturbation

          2. Luke says:

            How stupid, I’m only one vote and cannot actually pick the candidate but I know I would never vote for anyone you vote for.
            That’s the problem here..
            Israel is the only friend America has in the ME, obumba has many friends in the ME..

          3. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

            Both the stupidity and the ignorance is yours. Your mother and father, I am certain, are or would be proud of your moronic way of calling the President of the United states the names you call him. It is rude disrespectful and reflects on those responsible for your upbringing. It is a pity you are not in Texas and looking for this individual to send aid

          4. Luke says:

            I’m sure you don’t want to discuss your parents so shut up about mine.. You’re clueless about what’s happening in America from this illegal alien muslim in the WH, he’s the worst, the sorriest president, and a liar..These are the people you support..

          5. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

            Blah blah blah Hope that like Texas and New Jersey you do not find yourself in the position of asking President Obama for aid. None of you haters hesitiate at being hypocrites. As for my parents they are deceased but they were proud of their son and how they raIsed him not to be a bigot, liar, racist, hater and ignorant fool as yours did.

          6. Luke says:

            OK, your parents did raise a lying bigot and hater like you..I’m sure they were as hateful as you were taught to be..

          7. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

            OMG a thrid grade ” I know you are but what am I ” retort or did you mean I am rubber and you’re glue? I was obviously wrong your parents attempts at raising you are not yet complete only theri failure is

          8. Luke says:

            I did hate to lower myself to your level but it seems that is all you understand.
            I feel sorry for your deceased parents knowing what a hateful bigot you were..

          9. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

            LMAO you are a judgemental moron who can not see himself even in a mirror

          10. Luke says:

            I can see through you like you were glass, chump..

          11. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

            I have had enough of your ignorant childish retorts. You are sickening everyone even your fans with your ignorance Ciao idjit.

          12. Luke says:

            You’re just a lib troll here to prove how uneducated you people really are..
            You’ve had enough, LMAO..chump

          13. I Seigel says:

            Could you name one friend that Obama has in the Middle East? Let’s see if what you THINK you know stands up to a little examination.

          16. I Seigel says:

            What difference does it make WHO is in the White House? It’s the PM of Israel that’s in control of their government. Blaming ANY American is just dumb.

            We have defense treaties with South Korea and Japan, too, among many others. If China threatens Japan or South Korea sometime in the future – or the Philippines, or… – will you support their defense by the American military, no matter who is President?

          17. Luke says:

            This is about supporting our friends, not who is in power..obumba’s word is useless, he has proven that..
            Since you ask, I support defending all of our allies, but that’s a different subject, we’re talking about Israel who has many enemies especially in America..

          18. I Seigel says:

            Apparently America has many enemies, especially in America.

            And since you said, “… not who is power”, then I ask: why removing “that mooslim” from the WH is going to make any difference? That was your claim, which I was responding to.

          19. Luke says:

            I get that you blindly support obumba regardless if he is a proven and admitted liar, a socialist/marxist, a president who let four Americans die in Benghazi, a president who let syria kill with chemical weapons, a president who allows Christians to be slaughtered in the ME, on and on, but he’s yo man..
            I suppose it is futile to go on with this..

          20. I Seigel says:

            Who I support isn’t really the issue. The question I asked was, if according to you it’s not important who is in power, than why is it critical for Obama to be removed before the situation improves in the ME? I’m just trying to follow your logic here.

            Also, I’m not sure I understand how an American president – any president – is allowing Christians to be slaughtered in the ME. How could an American president control that? Even the local heads of state can’t. It’s not like the US is the most respected country in that region or the world. Courtesy of Bushes 1 & 2..

          21. Luke says:

            Innocent people are being slaughtered in the ME everyday, obuma does nothing. iran is developing a nuke and a way to deliver it to destroy Israel and bring into America through our wide open borders..obuma does nothing. Russia is being embolden as is china because of this weak and indecisive president who I believe is incompetent and does not understand we’re the only country that stands in the way to protect the innocent..

          22. I Seigel says:

            “…we’re the only country that stands in the way to protect the innocent.”
            Really? The ONLY country? How many people in this country would vote to keep interfering in an area where we know so little, and where we can’t tell “good guys” from “bad guys”? And the “good guys” keep morphing into “bad guys”. Republicans can’t seem to all be on one page about this. Dems, too. The military isn’t saying in one voice “let’s go in and fix this” because they have serious doubts, and they don’t want to see lives unnecessarily lost. The only people who seem to think we can and should take decisive action is FOX and that idiot blowhard John Bolton, who has no operational responsibility and can say whatever he wants to now, being a Monday-morning quarterback.
