  1. תִּמְחֶה אֶת-זֵכֶר עֲמָלֵק is written in Deuteronomy first and is said to be destroyed b/c it was the first nation that dared to fight Israel after the exodus. Saul come hundreds of years later.

    The democracies of the world unequivocally support Israel b/c there no way to nicely wrap the pogrom done by Hamas to civilians. If Hamas would have stuck to army bases and capturing soldiers, their would have had a great military success as well as PR. But instead, they went after a music festival and families dining a holiday meal. That is without mentioning the beheadings, burning of bodies and rape on top of the mass slaughter.

  2. Greetings from Israel,

    Apparently, your ‘source’ is privy to the secret directives of the Israeli wartime security cabinet, which makes him or her, pretty high up.

    How is your source able to reveal secrets to you, without running afoul of the Shin Bet?

    1. The story was also published in Ynet today. But much of I its was censored and its report is partial. We probably both have the same source. The other difference between my acct and theirs is that I gave partial attribution.

  3. Bullshit. Haniyeh had 14 members of his brother annihilated a few days ago. You are too late but enjoy your fantasy

  4. “This decision wreaks of desperation; a wounded animal lashing out at its attackers.”

    My interpretation is quite different … Homo sapiens’ decision is “rational” choosing the moment because “We Can” under full protection of U.S. Military might.

    Israel will get full support of EU Islamophobic nations led by France President Macron and the Dutch under caretaker PM Mark Rutte …

    Macron wants a Grand Coalition to fight Hamas, and sends a warning to Iran | EuroNews |

    Hamas = ISIS

    Indeed, don’t forget Iran as Netanyahu has succeeded to fill his war cabinet with ultra hawks, contrary to 2012.

  5. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres alleged violations of international law in Gaza and urged an immediate ceasefire as Israel pounds the Palestinian territory in response to Hamas attacks.

    Opening the session, Guterres said there was no excuse for the “appalling” violence by Hamas militants on October 7 but also warned against “collective punishment” of the Palestinians.

    Guterres said that the Palestinians had been “subjected to 56 years of suffocating occupation,” telling the Security Council: “It is important to also recognize the attacks by Hamas did not happen in a vacuum.”

    Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, Gilad Erdan, called on Guterres to resign.

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan proposes to organise “International Conference on Palestine-Israel Peace” in which all influential actors in the region will participate. He also offers Türkiye’s guarantorship system for Israel-Palestine peace.

    Extremely divided within the EC Commission, individual states call for a ceasefire for humanitarian aid and medical supplies into the Gaza Strip refugees camps.

    Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani on Tuesday called for an end to the ongoing Israeli war on Gaza, saying “enough is enough.”

    “We are saying enough is enough,” Sheikh Tamim said at the opening of the 52nd annual session of the country’s Shura Council, adding that Israel should not be allowed to use water, medicines and food as weapons against an entire population.

    In rare praise, Israel hails Qatar’s ’crucial’ diplomatic efforts in Gaza crisis. As I understand Qatar is mediating for the release of all captives held by Hamas.

    Will Israel be forced to negotiate a definitive peace and accept a sovereign Palestine in a two-state or one single democratic state to end illegal occupation and apartheid. There may be no other escape for Israel to live in peace with its neighbors as codified in the UN Charter.

  6. “As if genocide wasn’t bad enough, now Israel has become a psychotic serial killer.” How does this sentence make any sense? I know that nowadays the word genocide means basically anything the speaker wants it to mean, but I never figured it could mean something less serious than killing Hamas leadership and their families. I don’t think it’s acceptable for Israel to kill relatives of Hamas leadership based solely on their status as relatives, but surely genocide should be something far worse than that. Unless the word really means nothing at all.

  7. In 2017, a U.S. Navy SEAL Team killed four unarmed associates of Osama bin Laden, along with bin Laden and bin Laden’s son, Khalid.
    Two years later, the United States assassinated another son of bin Laden’s, Hamza bin Laden.


    Honestly, I’m not bothered in the least by the extrajudicial deaths of bin Laden’s family members and associates. Who is?


    The leader of the Islamic State died during a raid by U.S. Special Operations commandos in a risky pre-dawn attack in northwest Syria. Rescue workers said women and children were among at least 13 people killed during the raid.


    1. @Rex – @Yellow

      Fake Hamas = ISIS
      False equivalent October 7th is not Pearl Harbor or 11 September

      No equivalent to the Shoah, Kristallnacht, Nazi atrocities or Galician pogroms. Netanyahu uses the Holocaust comparison to hide his own hideous acts against Palestinians.

      Legitimate cause of Palestinians … a Free Palestine 🇵🇸

  9. I hope you don’t get mad at me for posting this, but Netanyahu is playing with fire here. One of the missions of those Hamas infiltrators into the country is to find and assassinate him. So it’s going to end up being an eye for an eye situation. He may have thought this war would help him get out of his legal trouble, but it’s going to end up seeing him killed on or around the 28th anniversary of Rabin’s assassination instead. Even though he is psychotic and a genocidal maniac, I genuinely don’t think he has a death wish, but who knows. We’ll see how good his protection is. I think he’s more vulnerable than he realizes.

  10. Israel is bombing the family homes of the Press in Gaza, the family homes of Doctors in Gaza, and the family homes of anyone in Leadership Positions in Gaza, including the family homes of Hamas in Gaza.

    “I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free.” — Lincoln’s House Divided Speech

    Israel will either push all Palestinians out of Palestine, or the Palestinians will become the majority population in ONE STATE, Palestine Israel.

  11. IDF Targets Families of Doctors and Reporters

    Palestine Ambassador to UN Fayad Monsour spoke today before an emergency session of the UNGA in New York. In his speech he urged the Assembly to take urgent action for humanitarian aid and protection of the civilian population in Gaza.

    He gave testimony to another incident today …

    Wael El-Dahdouh, Al-Jazeera Bureau Chief in Gaza, was reporting live when an Israeli airstrike targeted the southern Gaza building where his family sheltered, killing his wife, son, daughter, and grandson.

    The ongoing genocide against the civilian population of Gaza, perpetrated by the Israeli government of Binyamin Netanyahu, is an embarrassment for the United States [and EC President Ursula Von der Leyen], which fully supports this reckless disregard for the lives of innocent noncombatants — men, women and children.

  12. Targeted assassination of enemy personnel assets whether military, political or spokesmen,
    has long been part of security doctrine for Israel among other nations
    So that is not news. Here’s a link to the ynet article: https://www.ynet.co.il/news/article/skq1100jhfp
    But nowhere mentioned in ynet that family members have been targeted specifically.
    While one may safely assume that family members are considered collateral damage, claiming that the objective of the war is targeting family members of senior Hamas operatives must be considered hearsay and especially so, absent attribution.

    Overall, I enjoy reading your blog, as it serves to balance my perspective as one who lives here in Israel. But this story only reinforces my impression that your reporting needs to be taken with a grain of salt every now and then.

    1. @David: It doesn’t matter how long Israel has been assassinating its enemies. It was/is immoral and a violation of the laws of war and conflict. Not to mention that all major strategic and military analysts declare that assassinations and torture do not work in achieving national objectives.

      As for the YNET report, the story is under censorship. Ynet cannot report what i did. But my source is permitted to leak stories like this to me. So what Ynet published or didn’t pubolish is irrelevant.

      Family members are being targeted. Again no matter what Ynet did or didn’t say. The murder of Dahbouh’s family proves this.

      As for attribution. Sources lay conditions for leaking. journalists honor those conditions. As I did. Journalists publish stories with sources who are anonymous every day. It’s a long established and legitimate practice. SO i Could give a flying f* what you think of my report or source. I didn’t invite you here. I don’t write for your approbation. If you don’t like what you’re reading, go elsewhere.
