IDF strikes explosive kite and balloon workshops in Gaza

An IDF drone Thursday night struck two Gaza workshops making incendiary kites and balloons for Palestinian terrorists to toss over the border into Israel. In the first strike, the kite team was targeted by a missile; in the second, the equipment for preparing the exploding balloons. This was the first time since the kite-balloon offensive began that the IDF has fired a missile at these terrorists. Over the past month, they have laid waste to thousands of dunams of Israeli farmland and woods with flaming kites and explosive balloons. On Friday, they set 17 fires.

      Why not drop some Napalm on Gaza’s crops in retaliation? Napalm is easy to make; just mix Ivory Soap Flakes with Gasoline.

      Also burn the tents they set up along the border fence and turn the cockroaches into “Crispy Critters.” This could be easily done by a few IDF Archers using flaming arrows; it worked exceptionally well during the Middle Ages.

      Sons and Daughters that follow Abraham’s Covenant that Strangers must be turned into Friends and Enemies must be defended against and always be challenged but always with humane means to avert death and destruction only as a last resort. Israel has always made attempts to try and stop attacks has much as possible, but as Hamas Gaza Attacks keeps coming, stronger action will be taken. Just like before and Hamas, Hezbollah, and Iran are to be blamed and will be held accountable even more so as they choose to continue such attacks.

    Why is this that I’m sick and tired to hear of “Palestinians” every single time and since decades going back in time to Munich ’72 Olympics?

    Why all this Arab savagery?

    What other aspirations than to kill?

    Are they human beings?

      Yes, you are right, these are people who have been using aggressive terrorist tactics for 100 years. They have lost to war many times but still maintain their killing ways.

      Their own Islamic coreligionists have 56 countries worldwide yet do not want the Terrorstinians for anything other than perpetual Jew killers.

      That has become their reason to live; a people who love death and only want to live long enough to kill Jews. They do not want, need nor deserve another country because they already have 22 in the immediate vicinity where they could go were their people humane and understanding – which they are not.

      Obviously the way Israel has gone about compassionately dealing with them has failed. Israel should not be trying to create conditions for peace with people who want only war. Israel must win this unfinished war. War which the Terrorstinians initiated and maintain to this day with help from the bamboozled international community still holding to antisemitic Holocaustic insanity through their Islamist proxies.

      The World is changing and especially in the Middle East many Arabs, Persians, Asians are following Abraham Teaching of G-D’s Covenant Fellowship of welcoming Israeli’s and working together just like many Palestinians still do that live within Israel Borders and are Citizens. Hate towards Israel is not growing anymore as many Civilized Men, Women, and their Children are learning to live, trade, and prosper with Israel. Only Iranian 1979-2018 Ayatollah’s Corrupt Leadership, Hezbollah’s Terrorists, Hamas’s Cowards that misuse. mislead, and lie to Palestinians to be used as shields and sons for death and are not following Jehovah and Allah’s Law as written by Mohammad the Messenger, that also believes in Abraham’s Covenants for all as well. Many more Kites will fly on Fire and many more Kite Makers will learn in the end, another lesson that caused more death and destruction, and only have themselves to be blame.

      Quran (2:191-193) – “And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution of Muslims is worse than slaughter of non-believers. Fight them until persecution is no more, and all religion is for Allah.” Note: This is NOT speaking of actions during warfare, but regarding forced acceptance and conversion to Islam.

      Followers of Islam are trying very hard to keep people of all other beliefs to remain quiet and be “tolerant of Islam”. If the rest of the world takes the time to read the Qur’an we will be up in arms against its teachings and in such, also against its practicing followers.

        The Provocative Propagator Pundits are now employing Goebbels’ “Big Lie” on Global Masses to the point that they have Unilaterally Agreed, on behalf of everyone else, that all of the Israelite’s must lie down beneath the Knife of Iranian Islam with Required Reparations to be Paid for the Crime of Surviving! Unfortunately, Social Justice makes for a strange Murderous-Suicide Bedfellows’ Plots. Anyone attempting to spread Antisemitism gets dressed up as Anti-Zionism. The same People of Hate whom choose to become get Furious over Sombreros at a Costume Parties have nothing to say about explicit calls for the Death of Judaism, Israel and America . Meanwhile their Collaborators, are suddenly Rediscovering the Value of Universities Universal Campus Free Speech while complaining that a Vast Zionist-(Jewish) Conspiracy is muzzling criticism of Israel. But it doesn’t end with just Iran’s origins attacking just Sons and Daughters of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. It begins with attacking just Judaism and Israelis’. It is what the European Moral Malaise has Forgotten and what Europe, America and Middle East-Asia are Relearning for the World to Survive and Thrive. All Sons and Daughters of Abraham, Ishmael and Issac must remain vigilant and courageous to stand up for all points of Rationality in a Room Full of Agitated Ignorance, that attempt to say Death and Destruction upon others instead of Living Together as Abraham’s Covenant with One True G-d, Jehovah, and Allah intended together. The Koran is divided into 114 chapters called Suras. The following are translations of passages found in these Suras that are related to ISRAEL…..”[2.40] O children of Israel! call to mind My favor which I bestowed on you and be faithful to (your) covenant with Me, I will fulfill (My) covenant with you; and of Me, Me alone, should you be afraid. [2.47] O children of Israel! call to mind My favor which I bestowed on you and that I made you excel the nations.”

      Alaykumu salam, brother Mahmud!
      My heart is also very heavy with this disturbing football attraction.
      How could one light kites if there is this much more interesting football?
      It really turns the protest into the Great March of My Balls.
      However I saw Muslims playing and they play pretty good.
      What if Saudis win the championship?

    It’s about time Israel destroyed the kite makers not just their equipment.

    Oslo is dead, so is the “2-State”.
    West Bank & Gaza Arabs don’t want peace,
    so instead of our people constantly taking on more casualties
    trying to make peace with these descendants of Amalekites,
    PLEASE ! – will some military force just eradicate them once and for all
    so the rest of us can all then go out for ice cream?

      Why isn’t it possible to just drill a few bullet holes into the kites? They will come crashing down before they cross the border.

    I think it is better to drill a few holes into the heads of the kite flyers. Kites are easy to come by, . . . kite flyers take at least 10 years or so to replicate.
