Israel Vows “Disproportionate Response” to Rocket Attacks

Posted by iusbvision on February 4, 2009

Good, tit for tat warfare never works, limited warfare almost never works. It is time that this conflict be brought to an end through victory. Note to anti-semites everywhere, and especially to certain professors at IUSB who know who you are: If Palestinians stop launching rockets and mortars at Israel tomarrow they will have nothing to fear from Israel.

JERUSALEM, Feb 1 (Reuters) – Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert threatened on Sunday a “disproportionate response” to the continued firing of rockets into Israel from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.

There have been sporadic rocket attacks by militants on southern Israeli communities and several Israeli air strikes in the Gaza Strip since a truce came into effect on Jan. 18 following a 22-day Israeli offensive in the territory.

At least two rockets struck southern Israel on Sunday, causing no damage or casualties. A wing of al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, a group belonging to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah faction, claimed responsibility.

“The government’s position was from the outset that if there is shooting at the residents of the south, there will be a harsh Israeli response that will be disproportionate,” Olmert said at the weekly cabinet meeting after the latest rocket salvo.

“We will act according to new rules which will ensure that we will not be drawn into a war of incessant shooting on the southern border, which would deprive the residents of the south of a normal life,” he said, without elaborating.
