A day or two after the ceasefire in Gaza, video reports showed Hamas back to restoring tunnels for weapons acquisition, and now Hamas is firing rockets again determined for more bloodshed amongst their own people. The usual initial Israeli response was employed again. Bombing the tunnels region within days after the last barrage in the hopes of limiting Hamas’ rocket firing.
This strategy is obviously not working very well.
Sometimes you need to think outside the box.
What if Israel acquired water bombers that they could load up with sewage, shit,piss,toilet paper,condoms and tampons, and rain the national discharge along the Gaza/Egypt border . Israel could run sorties once a week.
Ordnance would be cheap, with no casualties, and I’ll bet the joys of martyrdom are not enough to overcome the stink and revulsion to resume the tunneling activity.
Not only that, but it just may be that aerial bombing
with sewage could be a way more effective weapon when you want to coerce and demoralize a population to change their behavior.
Not that I am that knowledgeable about Israel-Palestine affairs, but do you mean that most of the Palestinians think the cease fire was great, and that it’s Hamas that’s going out and breaking it? 'Cause as I understand it, Hamas is fairly uniformly OK with attacking Israel, but most Palestinians are not members of Hamas.
Given that Hamas’ official charter calls for the destruction of Israel, says that “initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time” and hints pretty clearly in the direction of genocide … what exactly do its moderate members believe in?
“Death to the Jews, yes … but humane, painless death.”
If you think like Der Trihs the Gazans will react more violently to insults than physical harm (unlike the Jews who are frequently refered to as pigs) then all I can say I’m glad no one from there is posting in the pit.
Did anyone else read this as “humane pieless death?”
(Which, of course, would be the least humane death I could think of!)
As for Dutchman’s idea, if this keeps up, I think eventually that’s all that region will be reduced to-flinging shit at one another. It’s too depressing.
