Will Israel do what it takes to degrade Hamas after 400 rockets?

Israel’s deterrent strength is on the line after the Palestinian Hamas fired more than 400 rockets in 5 and-a-half hours on Monday, Nov. 12. After their massive barrage, Hamas and its terrorist allies threatened to expand their targets beyond the South if the Israel air force on missions in Gaza Monday night goes beyond its routine tit-for-tat reprisals against empty buildings in the Gaza Strip.

An escalation of violence is therefore unavoidable in the next hours.  It is up to the IDF to switch its tactics to attacks that cause the Palestinian terrorists real pain. Monday night, the IDF dropped small rockets on the Hamas Al Aqsa TV channel building in Gaza City as a warning of the coming bombardment. The building was evacuated before it was demolished and their were no casualties. Israeli jets and drones went on to strike more buildings in Gaza City and Rafah, still within the usual norms, while Hamas confined its rocket launches to the South, although an anti-tank missile on an Israeli bus in the afternoon occurred minutes after 50 soldiers debarked, and could have caused a massacre. One of the soldiers was critically hurt.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his security and military chiefs are convinced that if the air force starts seriously attacking Hamas’ missile stores and the residences of its leaders, then the rockets will start exploding in Tel Aviv.

At the end of a top-level security assessment of the Gaza crisis, led by the prime minister on Monday it was announced that “operational decisions had been reached” and the security cabinet would resume the discussion on Tuesday. DEBKAfile’s military sources deduced from this comment that no final decision had yet been reached for the IDF to embark on a serious ground operation to cut down the terrorist forces plaguing Israel from the Gaza Strip. It is hard to believe that they are still hesitating after  hundreds of thousands of civilians were hammered by 400 missiles, confined to small shelters with their children, and 50 soldiers escaped harm by a hair.
For a successful large-scale military operation of this kind, two things are essential:

  1. Firm resolve to achieve a clearly-defined target.
  2. Concentration of a sufficiency of armed military strength ready to go

Since all those in authority have been barred from making public statements, it is hard to estimate whether Netanyahu and Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gady Eisenkot have finally dropped their insistence on avoiding a major conflict in the Gaza Strip on the grounds that, after it is over, Israel will be back where it started. Countering this argument, critics say: Yes, but Israel will have regained the whip hand and be able to enforce a long period of calm. A former Deputy Chief of Staff, Maj. Gen (res) Yair Golan has dismissed the current Netanyahu-Eisenkot position as “unwillingness to win the battle.”

This unwillingness is challenged by a determined opponent. Yahya Sinwar is Hamas’ one-man decision-maker. It is he who runs the war on Israel. So long as he sees Israeli planes attacking empty buildings in the Gaza Strip, he will continue to turn the screw on the Netanyahu government for more concessions and a steady supply of cash and fuel against empty promises of calm. This strategy works perfectly. Last week, Qatar delivered $15m in cash to Hamas in the Gaza Strip and Israel began running convoys of fuel tankers into Gaza. And yet, on Friday, Hamas staged its regular mob assaults on the Israeli troops defending the Gaza-Israeli border fence and unleashed this incredible rocket barrage.

This situation is untenable. It can only be altered if the IDF changes its tactics and goes for targets of military value and hits Hamas armed wing’s actual locations without prior warning. If Israel is ready for a real showdown with Hamas on those lines, it has a good chance of winning the current round with the Palestinian terrorists, regaining its deterrence and achieving a lengthy period of calm for the battered population of the south.

    It is time to invade all hamas territories and Gaza. I would move the border out 20 more miles into Lebanon and Syria.. Yes, It would make Iran and Russia to take action and now this be war. United States will then attack Syria.

      Israel is unable to bear the phony tears from those in the west (who want it destroyed) that arise from civilian casualties. It is utterly impossible to fight an urban war without massive civilian casualties. Every country in the world will have demonstrations decrying the brutal Israelis and with endless images of wailing mothers clutching their “dead” babies, taken who knows where. It is trivial for Israel to cut off electricity, water, food, and to disrupt all forms of electronic communication. It is equally trivial for Israel to reduce Gaza into rubble as the Russians did in Grozny. But Israel considers itself to be far too moral a country to destroy civilians and faux civilians in Gaza. Israel cannot tolerate bad press. Proponents of freedom everywhere have the same problem, the truth is not an effective defense against the massive unremitting lying of the left.
      One suggestion is to emulate the bible. Implore Hamas to leave the Israelites alone. Failure to do so will have consequences, just as pharoah’s failure to leave the Israelites alone did. Each missile fired or fire balloon that arrives in Israeli territory results in a deterrent period. The deterrent periods gradually increase. First infraction is an hour, second infraction within a month is 2 hours and so on. If there are no attacks in 6 months the penalty period is reset. The penalties also increase, for the first N infractions the penalty is BLOOD, all water supplies are replace by blood (from slaughter houses, fish, etc., (maybe this entails purchases from other countries). The next infractions triggers DARKNESS. Electricity ceases at sunset and remains off for the penalty period.
      The other plagues are of dubious value and/or technologically too difficult to implement. New plagues could be substituted. Air delivered blister beetles are a possible substitute for BOILS. Pests more suitable for the Gazan climate could replace lice, flies and frogs. Bedbugs could be distributed by air. The border would need to be dusted with DDT. Ticks, spiders and scorpions are other possibilities. There would be no way to undo or turn off pests. Once present there they are regardless of the deterrent period. Perhaps the number and variety of pests delivered increases as the deterrent periods increase.
      Such actions will inevitably be condemned as inhuman by leftists and jihadists but in response they are actually pretty humane and anyway Israel is just following divine wisdom to the best of its ability. Israel is of course interested in hearing from anyone who has a better idea than God’s on how to change the stony, evil hearts of the modern day pharaohs of Hamas so they will free the Israelites from the missile barrages, border IEDS, fire balloons and other murderous attacks

      I think it is clear that the “De Facto Ruler” over the Gaza Strip Khaled Mashal, is sitting safe in Qatar and has no problem with Yahya SinWar leading the attacks being removed as threat to his own leadership and will benefit with even more Aid and Cash for another day making SinWar a Martyr.

      Prime Minister Netanyahu is wise to show restraint among criticism with hawkish remarks knowing unintended wars often have uncertain outcomes. As Gaza’s Buildings come down but Gazan causalities are avoided. This will only upset Fatah and Hezbollah looking for their own payoffs as Hamas takes Cash.
      Unlike President Clinton, Bush, and Obama. America will just leave it up to Netanyahu. As Iran would love another Intifada and Saudi Arabia would also welcome a distraction at this time.

      Meanwhile, the Birth of a Red Heifer, Fish in the Dead Sea and a Snake crawling out of the Wailing Wall will not stop Israel’s existence and will keep standing to do the right thing in the tradition of Abraham seeking Middle East Friends into a Family of Allies, and still reaching out to Enemies to make them become friends for Mutual Regional stability and prosperity.

      Why not repeat the success of the assassination efforts after Munich? Removing the top two leadership levels will quickly reduce the ability of Hamas to do, or even think to do, anything. It would ultimately be futile to put many lives at risk when only a few well trained could have the same effect.

    Once Israel’s ground troops get bogged down in Gaza Hisbullah/Iranian satellites will attack in the North under Russian Air Force umbrella and with Russian special forces as “advisers”. To avoid this Israel’s Air Force needs to burn Hamas leadership out of their hiding while IDF special forces simultaneously will be capturing/killing them. As a distraction Israel’s artillery should be destroying all Gaza’s water, fuel and food depots while the Air Force and special forces conduct their operations. Israel should use radio-logical weapons to create total panic among Gaza civilian population. The operation should last a short time and be completely devastating to Hamas and the population of Gaza.

      this should have been avoided, but now that it is here, there is no choice. israel will have to occupy gaza and remove hamas. it is also clear that in the case of a war with Hezbollah, Gaza cannot cannot be flapping in the breeze. so now it is time for a quick and massive operation to occupy gaza and dismember hamas. the hamas leadership and members can be held in a mass prison and exiled to a third country afterwards. it’s not ideal but for the coming problems with Hezbollah it is better to occupy gaza now than to leave it. the problem is the large scale civilian casualties that will happen in gaza but now the whole situation has become too existential to worry about this.

        gazan shout revenge for the Israeli mission in gaza and respond with 400 rockets aimed everywhere.

        For months, israel has threatened retaliation for the fire kites and bombs but hasn’t followed through. Instead they give fuel to hamas.

        After 400 rockets, Israel reacts by advance warning of attacks and bombing empty areas. This. Is not a sign of strength and hamas knows it. This is why hamas can continue to threaten Israel with more violence. And Israel continues to act weak.

        Didn’t we learn anything from WW2?

        Stop attacking empty buildings. Stop announcing your attacks. Wipe out All their bombing and military targets. Have the army shoot anyone coming across the border. Present your position- properly, to the world press.

        Do it before it gets worse,

        Unfortunately, Bibi sees Hamas in Gaza as useful idiots that counter Fatah on the West Bank. As long as Hamas is around opposing Fatah, it allows Bibi not to negotiate anything with the Palestinians. Once Hamas is removed, Bibi has to deal with Fatah and the terms of Israeli-Palestinian agreements. Politics is a dirty game. Hamas is still very useful to Bibi even if it kills Israelis.

      The army will not get bogged down if they fight to WIN. That means eliminating all opposition mercilessly and also includes their supporters who provide cover for the opposition. “Humanitarian” gestures have no place here.
      In 1967 it took two days to conquer Gaza. This can be repeated.
      Europeans who protest in favor of the “Palestinians” should be told to take them in.

      Wishful thinking, and if Isreal attempts ground invasion she would be humiliated by Hamas. I think Hamas needs to get effective MANPADS to pluck Isreali jets from the sky. This is what they lack . Iran must try to
      supply them these weapons. Hamas today isn’t Hamas today because they are now a force to reckon with.

Those who live outside of Israel and are so far away from the danger would be yelling: “disproportionate response” and would condemn Israel for daring to defend themselves…………….were the rocket attacks on Israeli communities even reported by the “international media” or did they only cover Israel’s response…………sort of like the way the Arab League covers events between Israel and Palestinian terrorists!

An Israeli LTC IO on ground in Gazza only tells me that they already had SF´s on ground for such an escapade. They did get several specific beneficial targets, I believe.

    Netanyahu is a blow hard. I seriously doubt he will do anything other than blowing up empty buildings. That said Hamas is in an excellent position. Israel does not and will not reoccupy the Gaza strip. The first civilian killed in Gaza will result in the UN attacking Israel. Short of Hamas rocketing Ben-Gurion airport I don’t see Netanyahu taking any serious action. In part, this mess is due to the Sharon and his bloat sense of self worth.

    If Israel is ready to be rid of the constant rocket attacks, arson balloons, stabbings and vehicle attacks, they certainly have the capability of doing what it takes. But of course the UN and leftists around the world will scream and point their fingers at Israel. If Israel is willing to take the heat from the leftists then they have every capability they need to rid themselves of the muslim curse.
    I personally don’t think Israel is ready to do that yet.

      A potential scenario: Israel hammers Gaza, UN assigns Russia to stop Israel in Gaza. Russian marines land in Gaza if Israeli troops are not there. If Israeli troops control the Gaza seashore then the Russians/Hizballah/Iranian puppets “extend a helping hand to the suffering population” of Gaza through an invasion of North Israel. Either way Hamas is being paid for provoking a Russia-Israel war. A war that Bibi is desperately trying to avoid. Such a war (including Hamas provocations) is possible to \stop in its tracks by an IDF destruction of the S-300 Syrian air defense system. Such an act would prove to Putin that he is risking to lose his air force and naval bases in Syria should Israel attack them. If oil stays at $60 per barrel and Russia sustains heavy casualties in Syria Putin will lose his presidency and most likely his life while his exiled family loses its wealth. Bibi and Putin had met numerous times and both know the high stakes that each has in this game. Israel may cease to exist as a Jewish state and post-Putin Russia may break up into smaller provinces i.e. also cease to exist as a major power. Putin will not risk his life and the death of his dream of reconstructing the USSR unless he thinks that he is about to win. Israeli successful raids on Syria’s S-300 can stop these cataclysmic events. Just one man’s humble opinion.

I am surprised that Hamas doesn’t have the Sams or man pads all ready, after all Egypt builds stinger missiles. Israel is in a whole and there is no easy way out any mass attack would bring the hell of the world down on them. Hezbollah doesn’t want Israeli land, neither does Syria, they just want back what they think is theirs. Now Turkey, Iran, and the rest of the Muslim world want Israel to be Palestine again and Jews part of it if they want to. The United States is not going to risk losing a conventional war and destroy their influence as well as their military. Just look at a map of the world and you will see that Israel and the USA are at a distinct disadvantage.

    I blame the people of Sderot and Ashkelon and all the other places that are getting bombed. They can get rockets themselves and hurl them back at the arabs. Instead they go on marches to Jerusalem as if their salvation will come from there. If they are unwilling to fight, as they learned from the previous yellow armband wearers then they have no chance.

    Since the IDF is not doing anything, there is no need for such a large army. I suggest firing half of them and giving the money saved to Hamas. I think $15 million is not enough to buy protection. A billion or two might just get us the peace that we want.

    Every time, EVERY SINGLE TIME that Israel has put a serious smackdown on Hamas they scatter like cockroaches and beg for a ceasefire. The missing element in the above analysis is WHY Israel has held back to date. The only reason that makes sense is that Israel does not want to become deeply entangled in Gaza because the necessary forces are needed elsewhere. Why remains unclear. If the answer is that they believe Iran/Hizballah will seize the opportunity to exploit resulting gaps in the north then Israel is already checkmated. If the answer is that there is a planned US-Israeli confrontation to end the Iranian-Lebanon-Syrian axis, or a joint attack on Iranian nuclear sites, we’ll we’ve all been waiting for this since 2001.

    It’s interesting that Debka seemed to forecast a US-Israeli offensive against Iranian targets around the time of the gathering in Paris, but instead we see a Gaza rocket offensive against Israel. There is more than meets the eye in all of this, and unless one is inside the intel bubble, it seems there are missing pieces to this puzzle.

      Don’t send troops in to Gaza no need to jeopardize Israeli soldiers lives. Shut off the electricity to Gaza and stop all shipments into Gaza. Start shooting artillery shells into Gaza from all over Israel. Ten shells for each rocket fired into Israel from Gaza. The starting number would be 4000. See how much of Gaza is left after 4000 shells explode indiscriminately in their territory. Then see if they are willing to have a cease fire.

    gazan shout revenge for the Israeli mission in gaza and respond with 400 rockets aimed everywhere.

    For months, israel has threatened retaliation for the fire kites and bombs but hasn’t followed through. Instead they give fuel to hamas.

    After 400 rockets, Israel reacts by advance warning of attacks and bombing empty areas. This. Is not a sign of strength and hamas knows it. This is why hamas can continue to threaten Israel with more violence. And Israel continues to act weak.

    Didn’t we learn anything from WW2?

    Israel was able to defend itself in 48, 67, and 73 war. Why can’t they finally end this hanas problem?

    Stop attacking empty buildings. Stop announcing your attacks. Wipe out All their bombing and military targets. Do it before it gets worse,

    I know the emotions are high for Bibi to act decisively, which to a great extent, is expected of him. But we must understand his decisions come from huge piles of intels and influences from both friends and enemies. I think this Gaza thing is a trick and i believe he and his team understand it that much, because any wrong step may bring about WWW3. Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas and all their cohorts seem to have been waiting for this trigger. HOWEVER, since most of the nudging come from Iran, why not get Iran burning and smoking IN Iran? I believe its still called preemptive strike. Hit something in Iran, something really strong that they will need to go home to put out the fire, so strong that if after putting out the fire the hunger to endanger Israel wont be there any more. Your forefathers used same tactics.

      Iran is a Russian tool to dominate the energy markets by a Russian military presence in the Middle East. If an important Iranian military installation is destroyed Russia will resupply Iran immediately. In the Middle East the Russian bear has degenerated into a snake. Hamas/Hizbullah/Iran/Iranian surrogates are the snake’s tail. Crippling the Syrian newly supplied by Russia air defense system may scare the snake into stopping the anti-Israel hostilities. If the snake doesn’t stop then the destruction of Russian air force and naval bases in Syria will certainly decapitate the snake.

    In WWII the effective use of TalBoy bombs caused massive damage. These are 12,000 lb earthquake bombs that penetrate deep; their lateral explosion force flattens air pockets some distance away as an earthquake. One or two of these, strategically placed in the heart of Gaza city will implode strategic subterranean bunkers and shake the hell out of the leaders there. Survivors can then be buried normally!

    Israel has forgotten the lessens learned from the British general Orde Wingate. Instead of hunkering defensively in watch towers guarding the kibbutzim, he taught the young Jewish officers (including Dayan) to go on the offense, to inflict real pain on their oppressors. Israel, is caught up in a battle for world opinion, trying to placate the leftists in Europe and America in a manner that the Jews in Europe were afraid to get Franklin Roosevelt to save their fellow Jews from the gas chambers. It is not going to work. In fact, better to be respected than loved. For the last thirty some years, since the Lebanon operation in the early eighties, Israel has played defense and the danger is growing steadily. It is counterproductive to rely upon such things as the Iron Dome, and Hamas will erode Israel’s supply of these weapons. The Air Force tit for tat is ludicrous! Yes there will be casualties, the world will rant and rave, but it is time to really go all out and do what must be one, and soon, while there is still a friend in the Oval Office.

      Yes- Bibi is a weak secular Jew under threat from enemies and friends. We Jews need a powerful Torah based King like King David was- a wise man and a scholar and warrior not under threat from democracy friends and enemies. A warrior who will smash the Arabs in Gaza Lebanon and Syria and smash Iran in Iran. And will smash Russia in Syria if need be. I say always follow the money- Hamas is being paid by Iran and Russia to start a war so that Russia can invade the Golan and Galilee and steal Jewish oil under the Golan deep under and steal Jewish gas off the coast of Haifa- Remember Putin wanted Bibi to sign a deal with Russians to develop Jewish gas off Haifa and Bibi said no? Putin is a KG warrior gangster man. He is coming for revenge to steal Jewish oil and gas and smash Israel’s army in the Golan and Galilee with advanced Russian power. Israel never uses its power anyway- they let Hamas humiliate them and hurt Israeli citizens so why do we need Bibi and Israel? Russia sees this and the Persians and Arabs see it- so we will see a Biblical invasion by Russia and Persia of Golan and Galilee. Jews- wake the hell up and return to your Torah the way of the Divine and spiritual- you need a warrior wise King because all you have now is cappucinnos in Telaviv and a leader as weak as a mouse.

    My God, you guys here have balls-for-brains. What actually happened here? Israel & Hamas were getting close to negotiating some kind of deal. So what does Israel do at this sensitive time? It sends in an assassination squad. Hamas responded predictably: “if you break an agreement, we will unleash what-little-hell-we-can on you”. That’s what actually happened while you guys are all depicting it as if Hamas chose out-of-the-blue at a whim to majorly attack. Fools.

    There are two interpretations of Israel’s actions. One: shmucks. What was the point of this assassination? It was so important? Yes it’s pos. that Israel acted incredibly foolishly.

    Two: Israel was being “smart.” They deliberately incited Hamas’ attacks. They knew how Hamas would respond and they want a pretext for invasion or some major action.

    And clearly, the IDF also knows that it can count on the mass of Israelis to act like mad dogs vs the Palestinians at very slight provocation – as you guys here are demonstrating, over and over. There seem to be v. few here who wouldn’t happily step up to be a Jewish Eichman.

The correct action is to reoccupy the Gaza and deport all combatants or kill them in place.
