GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) – Israeli aircraft sent missiles tearing through the office of Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh on Sunday in an unmistakable message to his ruling Hamas group to free an Israeli soldier.
Did Haniyeh get the message?
Haniyeh, inspecting the burning office building, called the Israeli attack senseless.
"They have targeted a symbol for the Palestinian people," he said.
Later, before meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Haniyeh vowed, "This will not break the will of the Palestinian people."
Fellow Islamofascist (yet competing terrorist) PA President Abbas weighs in:
"The world must understand that this is a dirty, criminal act," Abbas said.
The Israeli posititon:
Israeli Cabinet minister Roni Bar-On said the objective of the attack on Haniyeh’s office was to "compromise the Hamas government’s ability to rule."
"We will strike and will continue to strike at (Hamas’) institutions," said Bar-On, an Olmert ally. "They have to understand that we will not continue to let them run amok."
Here is the kicker. The terrorist strings of Hamas are being pulled by a Hamas leader residing in and supported by Syria:
Hamas, whose charter calls for Israel’s destruction, took power after winning January parliamentary elections. The group has a military wing and a political wing, and its political leadership is divided between more moderate elements in the West Bank and Gaza, and the more radical top leadership based in Syria.
The gunmen holding Shalit are believed to take their orders from Hamas’ Damascus-based political chief, Khaled Mashaal.

It boggles my mind that there is such a huge ineptitude of perception by the West as to the designs of Islalomfascists! Syria must be considered part of President Bush’s "Axis of Evil." Saddam was eliminated from the Axis that included Iran and North Korea. TODAY we have Syria pulling strings pertaining to military operations in the sovereign nation of Israel. Is that not an act of war.
When the one-eyed Mullah from Afghanistan protected Osama bin Laden after 9/11, did we not invade the psycho-Islamofascist Taliban state of Afghanistan? Bashar al-Asad (President of Syria) is meddling in the internal affairs of Israel causing death and destruction to its citizens and soldiers. Is that not an act of war?
And yet the West – America and the EU – are twisting diplomatic arms intensely on Israel not to use a military option to find a military goal of victory over those that wish the ultimate destruction of Israel.
One more thing to notice: Syria has a standing defense (yeah right offensive) treaty with Iran. Ultimately where does anyone think the money and the arms are coming from to inflict military hostility on Israel. Duh! Iran!
Friends this Appeasement thing the West is trying to cook up with Islamofascists is ludicrous. I am aware the main point behind the Appeasement is to keep the global economy running smoothly. We are talking OIL BUCKS here. Thing is if the Islamofascist have the oil and the West has the military might, let us take a couple of years of an oil bite and militarily remove those Islamofascists. Compliant puppets would be better than the extortion that is now occuring. Forget the political correct thinking, you have to realise the Mohammedans could care less about what is politically correct. That is why there is so much political and military extortion on their end.
Israel, you need to seek victory at all costs. Deal with the wimpy West later.
