Israeli Air Strike Kills Another Senior Hamas Leader

Israeli air strike kills another top Hamas military leader


Israeli air strike killed a senior commander of Hamas's armed wing this morning while the Islamist group's leader warned the Israeli army, currently massing on the border, would be defeated if it invaded Gaza.

A week after Israel launched devastating air strikes against the Palestinian enclave with the declared aim of ending Hamas rocket attacks on its southern towns, an end to hostilities remains elusive despite international diplomatic efforts.

The overnight air strike in Gaza killed Abu Zakaria al-Jamal, a senior leader of Hamas's armed wing, the Islamist group said. The Israeli army said only that it carried out a series of air attacks throughout the night.

An Israeli air strike killed another Hamas leader, Nizar Rayyan yesterday. Most of Hamas's top officials have gone into hiding, anticipating assassination attempts by Israel.

The United States has said it envisions a ceasefire with international monitoring that would ensure the Islamist group could not rearm, but in Damascus, Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal sounded a defiant note in a televised speech.

"We are ready for the challenge, this battle was imposed on us and we are confident we will achieve victory because we have made our preparations," Meshaal said.

A Palestinian official has said Egypt had begun exploratory talks with Hamas to stop the fighting.

Gaza medical officials put the Palestinian casualty toll at at least 429 dead and 2,000 wounded and a United Nations agency said more than a quarter of those killed were civilians. A leading Palestinian human rights group put the figure at 40 percent.

Four Israelis have been killed by Palestinian rockets, that include longer-range weapons that have hit the port of Ashdod and the desert town of Beersheba, forcing schools to shut and residents to scurry for shelter.

US President George W. Bush, in his first public comments on the hostilities that erupted less than a month before he leaves office, said: "Another one-way ceasefire that leads to rocket attacks on Israel is not acceptable."
"And promises from Hamas will not suffice -- there must be monitoring mechanisms in place to help ensure that smuggling of weapons to terrorist groups in Gaza comes to an end," he said in remarks prepared for his weekly Saturday radio address, which was released yesterday.

The United States has demanded Hamas, which Israel says has been smuggling weapons through tunnels under Gaza's border with Egypt, take the first step by halting rocket attacks on Israel.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Kill all the Hamas leadership no matter how many bombs it takes. Wait for the next group to step up, then repeat. Eventually there will be no one who ever wants the job of Hamas leader.

My goodness, Diana Buttu. By all means, don't let little things like facts get in the way of your taqquia! And how can we tell she's lying? Her lips were moving.

Good smack down, though, by Sean.

Taqquia - good explanation here. It means "lie."

There were no such thing as Palestinians. When was there an independent Palestinian people with a Palestinian state? It was either southern Syria before the First World War, and then it was a Palestine including Jordan. It was not as though there was a Palestinian people in Palestine considering itself as a Palestinian people and we came and threw them out and took their country away from them. They did not exist. Golda Meir

Again the libs are rearing their ugly head and are calling Israel 'disproportionate' in its response to the rocket attacks. How are you suppose to respond when 20-30 rockets a day are landing in civilian communities.

The libs like Carter just want the Israeli's to show some restraint, turn the other cheek. When both cheeks are bloodied, then what. Then it is time to respond. The Arabs sole purpose is to live for the total destruction of Israel. It seems everybody in the world knows this except the Jimmi Carters and his minions on the left.

When the Jews stop retaliating it will be there end. They have no choice. Any religion that begins with -I- and ends with -slam can not be trusted.

The reality of the situation is that Jordan IS the Palestinian State. No amount of misguided thinking, diplomacy, and financial support can create an artificial second Palestinian (actually Hamas terrorist) State out of two geographically separated entities of Gaza and Judea/Samaria (West Bank) that is economically and socially viable.

International monitoring of Gaza to prevent rocket, missile, and mortar launches into Israel as well as prevent the smuggling of additional weapons to terrorist groups would be as effective as the "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" UNIFIL in Lebanon who are effectively collaborators with Hezbollah with their feckless impotence.

There is only one solution to dealing with Islamofascist terrorists and their supporters. KILL THEM BEFORE THEY KILL YOU. Otherwise, you lose.

Jack, that gave me goosebumps reading that. How horrible it is like the how to of kumbaya or touchie feeling bullcrap. I do NOT want to get along with the Hamas or any other terrorist group.

Yes Kill them all and let God sort them out. It is my favorite.

Mark, I agree,Golda Meir is so right. She was an awesome person.

This that you said is rock solid fact. Yes.
"When the Jews stop retaliating it will be there end."

I like how you put this...."Any religion that begins with -I- and ends with -slam can not be trusted."

Les, yes if they do not keep fighting back Israel will be gone, there will never be another chance to have a country like they do now.They have already given away too much and I wish they had not given anything away.
