Yesterday, Seraphic Secret pointed out the obvious: Iran is supplying Grad rockets—via tunnels from Egypt—to the terrorists in Gaza. These weapons have longer range than previous rockets. The video above was proudly released by Islamic Jihad to demonstrate how advanced has become their weaponry. By firing several rockets in rapid sequence, Israel’s Iron Dome defense system is thwarted.
Does anyone doubt that the Iranian supplied rockets will only improve with greater range and increased lethality?
Remember, it was and is Iranian supplied IED’s that have been killing and maiming American soldiers in Iraq for the past 9 years.
Imagine a terrorist group with its very own state in Mexico whose members lob missiles into the United States. Our response would be devastating.
(Obama might offer them Green Cards as a gesture of good will.)
But because the political and elite classes in Israel have internalized the relentless propaganda of the terrorists—a national Stockholm Syndrome—the Jewish State follows a policy of limited engagement, content to fight a defensive war which the terrorists correctly judge as national suicide.
Meanwhile, Hamas is fighting for supremacy in Gaza as Islamic Jihad vies for the position of biggest, baddest Jew-killers on the block.
The always excellent Arab-Israeli journalist, Khaled Abu Toameh lays out the most current Arab Muslim fratricidal warfare and what it means for Israel and the region in the long run. Naturally, it is not a pretty picture.
