Seven Palestinians including an 11-month-old baby killed so far by Israeli airstrikes against Gaza this evening
After killing one of hamas top commanders israel is launching frequent airstrikes now in the Gaza strip, and if sending troops to the border, which means that there is a chance that we might see a new invasion soon. Hamas said that it is in open-war with israel and promised to open the gates of hell now for the zionists insha'Allah
Israel Kills Hamas Commander in Airstrike, Considers Ground Invasion of Gaza
Israeli Brigadier-General Yoav Mordechai said preparations are being made and "the option of a entry by ground is available."
Israel killed the military commander of Hamas in an airstrike on the Gaza Strip on Wednesday following days of exchanging fire in a confrontation that could lead Israel to invade the Palestinian enclave.
The attack, which represented a restart of Israel’s campaign of targeted assassinations in Gaza, came despite the fact that Hamas proposed a ceasefire days ago and despite signs that Egypt had managed to broker a truce. Israel ignored both overtures.
This latest surge of violence between Israel and Gaza militants occurred after Israel shot and killed at least two Gazans and intruded into Gaza with tanks and bulldozers. In response, Gaza militants fired a missile at an Israeli army jeep, wounding four soldiers – to which Israel responded with an extended bombardment of airstrikes that killed at least 7 people and wounded dozens. Hamas then began firing missiles into southern Israel.
The Israeli leadership is now reportedly considering an expanded war with Gaza, potentially including a ground invasion.
“The days we face in the south will, in my estimation, prove protracted,” Brigadier-General Yoav Mordechai told Israeli media. ”There are preparations, and if we are required to, the option of a entry by ground is available.”
Hamas confirmed that Ahmed Al-Jaabari, who ran the organization’s armed wing, was killed along with a passenger after their car was hit by an Israeli missile. Israel’s Shin Bet domestic intelligence service the killing was because of his “decade-long terrorist activity”.

Yes Egypt has pulled its ambassador and the zionists proclaim that strikes came from Sinai but I am pretty sure they did it to pull us into something, at any rate they killed the Hamas leader, Allah yer7amo.. I saw his two young daughters, two beautiful girls are now orphaned =( and I saw the air strikes on civilians live seven more have been killed.. I don't know if we're prepared for this, forty years under mubarak have turned Egyptians into sitting ducks, although I guarantee that 99% of Egypt considers Israel the enemy...
may Allah swt hasten the demise of the colonial settler state.. Let's turn to Allah swt and pray and supplicate.
make us steadfast against the enemy of Allah and grant us victory and our land back and people into safety .. ameen ya rabb ameen thoumma ameen
New Israeli Military Escalation against the Gaza Strip; Leader of Hamas’ Armed Wing and His Bodyguard Extra-Judicially Executed and Death Toll in Rises to 13, Including Two Children and a Woman, While 115 Civilian, Including 26 Children and 25 Women, Woun
Thursday, 15 November 2012 00:00
Since Wednesday evening, 14 November 2012, Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) have escalated military attacks on the Gaza Strip. They first extra-judicially executed the leader of the Izziddin al-Qassam Brigades (the armed wing of Hamas) and his bodyguard. This attack was followed by a series of aerial, ground and sea attacks on civilian and paramilitary targets throughout the Gaza Strip. As a result of these attacks, 11 Palestinians, including 4 civilians (two children, a woman and an old man) have been killed and 115 others, including 26 children and 25 women, have been wounded. IOF have escalated the situation in spite of the quiet atmosphere that followed a previous wave of escalation. The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR) is following up developments of this new offensive on the Gaza Strip.
According to investigations conducted by PCHR, at approximately 15:45 on Wednesday, 14 November 2012, an Israeli fighter jet fired a missile at a civilian car, a grey Kia, which was traveling near the Public Service Hospital in Gaza City. The leader of the Izziddin al-Qassam Brigades (the armed wing of Hamas), Ahmed Saeed Khalil al-Jaabari, 52, and his bodyguard, Mohammed Hamed Subhi al-Hams, 28, were traveling in the area. The car was completely destroyed and al-Jaabari and his bodyguard were killed. A number of nearby houses were also damaged.
Half an hour later, an Israeli warplane fired 3 missiles at a house belonging to Salah Jalal Arafat in al-Zaytoun neighborhood in the east of Gaza City. The house and a neighboring one belonging to Arafat’s brother were destroyed. One of Arafat’s children, 5-year-old Ranana, was killed and another two children and two women were wounded.
At the same time, an Israeli warplane fired a missile at a house belonging to Ali Nemer al-Masharawi in al-Zaytoun neighborhood in the east of Gaza City. Two members of the family (a woman and a toddler) were killed: Hiba Aadel Fadel al-Masharawi, 19, and Omar Jihad al-Masharawi, 11 months. Additionally, a child from the same family was wounded.
At approximately 19:30, an Israeli warplane fired a missile at a house belonging to Rasheed Abu Shibak in Tal al-Hawa neighborhood in the south of Gaza City. The house and nearby houses were heavily damaged and 18 Palestinian civilians were wounded.
Later, IOF launched a series of airstrikes at various areas in Gaza City, wounding 31 Palestinian civilians, including 8 women and 16 children.
In the northern Gaza Strip, IOF have launched 42 airstrikes, most of which have targeted space areas, training sites, populated areas and members of the Palestinian resistance. As a result of these attacks, two members of the Palestinian resistance have been killed while they were traveling on a motorcycle: Essam Mahmoud Ahmed Abu al-Meiza, 19; and Mohammed Ibrahim Hani al-Kaseeh, 18. At the time of writing this press release, at approximately 11:40, an Israeli warplane fired a missile at a group of the Palestinian resistance in the southeast of Beit Lahia, killing two members of the group: Rani Mahmoud Hammad, 33; and Khaled Abdul Rahman Abu al-Nasser, 27. A third member was also wounded. Additionally, 49 Palestinian civilians, including 13 children and 11 women, have been wounded, one of them is in a serious condition. Seven of the wounded, including 4 women and a child, were wounded while they were inside their house which was destroyed when a missile landed near it in Beit Lahia. Dozens of houses have been also damaged.
In the central Gaza Strip, IOF launched 12 airstrikes targeting agricultural areas and training sites. As a result of these attacks, an old man, Mahmoud Hamad Mahmoud Abu Sawawin, 61, was killed by shrapnel throughout the body, and his two sons were wounded while they were on their agricultural plot adjacent to a country house that was bombarded by IOF in al-Nussairat refugee camp. Additionally, 3 civilians, including a woman, were injured. In other attacks, 3 civilians, including a woman and her child, were wounded in the east of al-Boreij refugee camp.
In Khan Yunis, IOF have launched 11 airstrikes and two artillery shelling attacks targeting space areas and sites of the Izziddin al-Qassam Brigades. As a result of these attacks, 3 members of the Palestinian resistance were killed in al-Manara neighborhood in the south of the town: Habes Hassan Awadh Mismeh, 29; Wael Haidar Saeed al-Ghalban, 26; and Hisham Mohammed Ahmed al-Ghalban, 26. Additionally, 3 Palestinian civilians, including a woman and two children, were wounded while they were near their houses in al-Qarara village, northeast of Khan Yunis.
In Rafah, IOF have launched 10 airstrikes targeting space areas located near houses. They have also shelled Gaza International Airport, southeast of the town. As a result of these attacks, a woman and a child were wounded while they were inside their houses in the south of the town.
PCHR reiterates condemnation and expresses utmost concern for these crimes, and
1- Warn of deterioration of the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip in light of this new Israeli military escalation and the tightened closure.
2- Calls upon the international community to act immediately to stop these crimes, and renews the call to the High Contracting Parties of the Fourth Geneva Convention to fulfill their obligation under Article 1 of the Convention to ensure that it is respected at all times, and their responsibilities under Article 146 to pursue perpetrators of serious violations of the Convention, which are determined in Article 147, which lists violations of the Convention amounting to war crimes.
This will spell the beginning of the end for Israel in shaa Allah- I don't think anyone buys into their bull anymore. Die hard secularists in Egypt are already calling for severing ties and others an actual war against them!
My only concern is how prepared the ummah is but the only thing they can bank on now at least is that Israel has been calling of bluff of late threatening here and there but not able to carry through the attacks they desire, they're given to self-aggrandizement- but the U.S has its own troubles and I doubt very much they'll come to their aid now!
I am glad the U.S funneled all that money there, it will be nice when we inherit it all in shaa Allah.

''Netanyahu hides in bunker as Gaza rockets rain on Israel''
Tell Aviv under siege also
Israeli Defense Minister approves summons of 30,000 soldiers for Gaza operation - report
Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak has reportedly approved the summons of 30,000 reserve soldiers. The troops can be called into action by the military at any point, an IDF spokesman told Israel’s Channel 2 TV, as quoted by AFP.
Brigadier General Yoav Mordechai said the army was in the process of expanding the Gaza operation.
"The defense minister approved a few minutes ago, based on the army's request, the recruitment of another 30,000 soldiers. We will determine how many of them will be called in…all options are on the table," he said.
Some of those called up would be dispatched to replace existing units in their routine duties.
According to Mordechai, the army plans to continue its attacks on terror targets in Gaza until the operation’s goals are met. He added that it was “far too early to talk about a ceasefire.”
The news came after two rockets landed in the greater Tel Aviv area on Thursday.
Hamas and Israel have exchanged fire for two days, after Israel launched a strike against Gaza on Wednesday, killing the commander of the Hamas military wing.
Fire continues to be launched from each side, resulting in numerous casualties.
Three people have been killed and several dozens injured in Israel while in Gaza, at least 13 people have been killed and over 100 injured.
I know how this goes. When zionists kill more and more Palestinians, resistance gets more members.
Men today have become women. (not in a disciminating manner, but its true). Its not good to be in a emotional state now, but who wouldnt when he sees this slaughtering, this genocide, by seeing that it burns my heart, from anger.
We need to repent, ask God for forgiveness and make dua for the oppressed around the world. Make dua for the palestinians, that Allah will grant them victory very soon insha'Allah

An update on what its like to live in Gaza
World-renowned political dissident, linguist, author and MIT professor Noam Chomsky joins us to discuss his recent trip to the Gaza Strip, where he publicly called on Israel to put an end to the blockade on the Hamas-ruled coastal enclave. "[Gaza] is a lesson for people from the West," Chomsky says. "If they can struggle on under really harsh and brutal conditions, it tells us we ought to be doing a lot more."

Of course I hate Israel because Muslims are being killed. But at the same time, I do not join hands-in with countries back home which collect ppl under the banner of some patriotism or humanism against Israel.
But good point, Ill think about it. Why let them win!
With all due respect to everyone affected by the recent attack I don't think the Palestinians are ready for an Israeli attack right now and not for quite some time.
Let's face it. As much as we want to see them get back their rights, they weren't ready back in 2008/09 and still aren't. They took heavy losses to lives and infrastructure back then.
I don't understand why they are sending rockets into Israel when they don't have the capabilities, resources and support of the Arab world to defend themselves against Israel and their supporters in the West.
It would make more sense to lay low and build up strength than to temporarily fire rockets into areas which don't even seem to be doing much damage.
Secondly Hamas killed three Israelis with its rockets today, the border with Egypt is now open to them where it was closed before, the Amir of Qatar just gave them a billion, and let's face it, they've been preparing for this for 60+ years.
They're not cowards and martyrdom will happen, but now is the time to rise..
Do reflect on this verse:
Al-Baqara (The Cow) [2:249] [RECITE]Falamma fasala talootu bialjunoodi qala inna Allaha mubtaleekum binaharin faman shariba minhu falaysa minnee waman lam yatAAamhu fainnahu minnee illa mani ightarafa ghurfatan biyadihi fashariboo minhu illa qaleelan minhum falamma jawazahu huwa waallatheena amanoo maAAahu qaloo la taqata lana alyawma bijaloota wajunoodihi qala allatheena yathunnoona annahum mulaqoo Allahi kam min fiatin qaleelatin ghalabat fiatan katheeratan biithni Allahi waAllahu maAAa alssabireena2:249 When Talut set forth with the armies, he said: "(Allah) will test you at the stream: if any drinks of its water, He goes not with my army: Only those who taste not of it go with me: A mere sip out of the hand is excused." but they all drank of it, except a few. When they crossed the river,- He and the faithful ones with him,- they said: "This day We cannot cope with Goliath and his forces." but those who were convinced that they must meet Allah, said: "How oft, by Allah's will, Hath a small force vanquished a big one? Allah is with those who steadfastly persevere."

Timeline: Israel's Latest Escalation in Gaza
Al-Awda The Palestine Right to Return Coalition calls on its members and all supporting organizations and individuals to organize demonstrations in front of Israeli Embassies and Consulates, Federal and other locations to demand an end to the ongoing Israeli aggression and siege of the Gaza Strip. On November 9, 2012 Israel's army killed a teenage child playing soccer in Gaza and then launched an unprovoked bombardment of the Gaza strip which killed seven Palestinians and injured more than 40, and to which the resistance responded. Subsequent Israeli attacks led to more deaths and injuries and culminated today in the assassination of Ahmed Jabri, second in command of Military Wing of Hamas and nine other people throughout Gaza. Further, Israel formally announced that it has launched a ground invasion of the Gaza strip, saying they'll be in Tal Alhawa within 24 hours. This is an area in the middle of densely populated Gaza City.
We call on all people of conscience to organize emergency demonstrations and demand Israel immediately stop its attacks on Gaza. We also demand that the Israeli and Egyptian governments immediately END THE SIEGE OF THE GAZA STRIP and grant immediate access to all food, humanitarian and medical relief supplies without restriction. The strip is home to 1.5 million Palestinians, 80% of whom are refugees denied by the Zionist state the right to return to their homes and lands of origin from which they were expelled by the Zionist occupation in 1948 and thereafter. Nearly half of the Gaza population are children who along with the elderly and ill remain completely deprived of food, water, fuel, electricity, humanitarian relief and medical supplies or facilities.For demonstration in Los Angeles Please join us Thursday November 15 @ 4 PM in front of the "Israeli" consulate, 11766 WILSHIRE BLVD, Los Angeles, CA 90025.

Call your representative to demand an immediate halt of aggression on Gaza.(PALOS HILLS, IL 11/14/2012) – AMP condemns the recent attacks on Gaza which claims, so far, at least 7 deaths including an eleven-month-old infant a six-year-old child in addition to dozens of injuries including many children. AMP calls for an immediate halt of the attacks.
AMP believes that the occupation leaders are using Palestinian blood for election purposes. Each time the political climate in Israel reaches a dead end Israeli officials attack Palestinians for political gain in hopes of swaying the Israeli voter.
The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was unhappy with the outcome of the election in the US as he clearly and openly supported Governor Mitt Romney in the last election. As such, this recent assault attempts to cause disturbances for the Obama administration after the recent elections.
“All of these actions prove Israel does not want peace, and furthermore, is intent on causing instability, especially after the region underwent various uprisings that have resulted in democratically elected governments.” Said Dr. Hatem Bazian, AMP Chairman. “These attacks are an attempt to corner the newly appointed governments and test their position toward the struggle in the Middle East.
Israel is not, nor has ever been interested in achieving peace with the Palestinians. Rather, the Zionist apartheid state is intent on waging war in efforts to continue its policy of the ethnic cleansing and the transfer of the Palestinian people out of their homes.
AMP firmly believes withholding more than $3 billion in the U.S. foreign aid is the only way to force Israel into compliance with international humanitarian and civil laws.
Be firm, but polite, call your representative and the State Dept. demand that our government:
• Pressure Israel to put an immediate halt on the aggression on Gaza
• Withhold US aid to Israel
• Acting Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs Elizabeth Jones - 202.647.7209
• Find your elected officials online

you know what this tells me? That people aren't the sheeple that the media portrays as a majority to make the rest of us feel like conspiracy theorists. Not that I personally care who brands whom with what but it is nice not to be a solitary island, that the majority actually think and believe and know as we do but are incapable or simply have given up on being the change.
I may not see it crystalized in my mind with all the chaos that is going on but you know what, neither the Pharaoh, nor Aad nor Thamud nor ashab Ar'ras or others like them were destroyed by a powerful empire, they were destroyed by the will of Allah swt, so long as we make our intentions pure and strive.. but we can't simply say what can we do, or no the Gazans should take all the hits and shut up or Egypt should honor its peace treaty after the spawn of Satan murder 6 Egyptian soldiers breaking their fast in Ramadan!
So I really think the time is now. Nations like Iran may talk the talk but we fight the fight!
We should never wish for war or meeting the enemy but when it happens we must be steadfast!
