Hilarious Quote of the Day:
“We have been informed by the Israeli side that imports of tires to Gaza have been halted until further notice. There is no doubt stopping the imports will have a negative effect on Palestinians in Gaza especially considering there is a shortage of them there. We will do everything within our power to overturn the decision.”
Muhammad Hamdan, spokesman for the Palestinian Transportation Ministry
Have you ever heard of anything more hilarious in your life? The Palestinians in Gaza just burned 60,000 tires at the border, tires that they took from tire dealerships and stole off of cars and trucks. And now the same Palestinians want to cry that they don’t have any tires, and Israel won’t give them any more to burn?
But not really. Because the Palestinians are never held to account for their actions, they feel free to ask for the moon.
The News On The Israeli Street
Palestinian terror in the last 24 hours . . .
There have been more than 40 terror attacks; here are some examples:

All of the above attacks were reported by Israeli citizens to rotter, hakolhayehudi, Rescue 443, and Rescue Judea and Samaria.
TODAY’S TWO-PART BLOG:
Part 1: World Hypocrisy On Parade
Wherever we look today, we have brutal dictators pretending to be humanitarians, and so-called “humanitarian defenders” singling out Jews for castigation.
One of the most bizarre stories yesterday had PM Erdogan of Turkey, who has undertaken a brutal campaign to wipe out the Kurds in Turkey, Syria, and Iraq, speaking with President Putin about the importance of protecting civilians in Syria. According to the story, Erdogan thinks that Putin let things get out of hand when the Russians permitted the Syrians to gas the people of Duma.
Now if the Syrians had gassed the Kurds, Erdogan would have been unable to control his joy.
Meanwhile, take note of this bombastic horse manure:
“It is with grave concern that I note the violence and deteriorating situation in the Gaza Strip in the context of recent mass demonstrations. At least 27 Palestinians have been reportedly killed by the Israeli Defense Forces, with over a thousand more injured, many, as a result of shootings using live ammunition and rubber-bullets. Violence against civilians – in a situation such as the one prevailing in Gaza – could constitute crimes under the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.”
Guess who said this? It was none other than International Criminal Court Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda speaking in The Hague yesterday.
Israeli soldiers shoot 32 Palestinian terrorists trying to infiltrate our country, whereas 500,000 civilians are dead in Syria largely as a result of the actions of Syrian, Iranian, Hezbollah, Russian, and Turkish soldiers over the last half decade.
And who is the fatuous Fatou Bensouda accusing of war crimes?
Assad can gas his own people killing thousands; the Russians can bomb cities killing thousands; the Turks can blatantly try to ethnically cleanse northern Syria—and nothing happens. When was the last time the ICC accused Assad, Putin, Khamenei, or Erdogan of a war crime?
It has never happened.
But let Israel try to defend itself against armed terrorists trying to breach our borders, and immediately the ICC cries “war crimes.”
The situation is absolutely pathetic.
Part 2: In Praise of “Delilah”
It turns out that your humble servant was correct in his assumption about the middle of the night flights we reported yesterday. Numerous sources have confirmed that Israeli jets were the ones that struck Syria. However, unlike what we reported, it appears that it was our cruise missiles, not American tomahawks, that hit their targets.
What we hit were:
* A top secret state-of-the-art Iranian command and control center.
* Iran’s Drone Operation Center located at the T-4 Airfield near Homs.
* Iranian weapons and ammunition warehouses located in the field.
In the process, at least 11 Iranian Revolutionary Guards were killed.
Accusations are being hurled in every direction today. Most strident among them are the Iranian accusations that Israel told Russia in advance what it was going to do, and the Russians did not inform them.
But even more, the Iranians believe that the Russians provided us with the exact coordinates of targets so that our Delilah air to ground missiles could zero in on them.
At this point, you may be asking what is a Delilah missile? In fact, it is one of the most potent missiles in the Israeli arsenal as described in wikipedia:
“The Delilah missile is a cruise missile or loitering munition developed in Israel by Israel Military Industries (IMI). The missile is designed to target moving and re-locatable targets with a probable circular error (CEP) of 1 meter (3 ft 3 in). Unlike a typical cruise missile, which is locked onto a pre-programmed target prior to launch, the Delilah missile’s unique feature . . . is being able to loiter and surveil an area before a remote weapon systems officer, usually from the launching fighter aircraft, identifies the specific target of the attack.”
Whatever the case, the strike serves notice to everyone currently operating in Syria that Israel is willing to take strong pro-active steps to stop the Iranians from setting up bases close to our border.
