The historic defeat of Hamas

The historic defeat of Hamas

People lie and say stupid things because they’re corrupt, they’re dishonest, they’re idiots, or they want desperately to be liked by the in-crowd. The biggest in-crowd of all time is those who hate Jews. Even people who don’t hate Jews go along with the anti-Jewish propaganda because they want to belong. How can the United Nations, Human Rights Watch, the International Committee of the Red Cross, France, and Penelope Cruz all be wrong? How can most of the world be wrong? Well, because a majority of people have major mental problems. I don’t want to be part of their group, so I can tell you about the historic defeat of Hamas.

It doesn’t matter what “experts,” pundits, or talking heads say. Hamas lost this war badly. After the 2006 Israel-Hezbollah War, I said, “Hezbollah got whipped.” I was almost alone in my opinion, but someone very important agreed with me.

Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah.

[W]e did not believe, even by one percent, that the captive operation would result in such a wide-scale war, as such a war did not take place in the history of wars. Had we known that the captive operation would result in such a war we would not have carried it out at all.

There’s your blueprint for wars, Israel. When they mess with you, lay waste to their country. Then they’ll leave you alone. It’ll save more lives in the long run, so don’t feel guilty.

Hamas is probably not ready to admit defeat the way Hezbollah did, but they’re close. Let me explain why.

Israeli intelligence can find Hamas leaders anywhere

Another Ghoul was killed, this one a high-level Hamas finance manager.

What a weird photo. These people are so blase about violent death that it’s now entertainment for them. Does anybody look upset? Nope. Just another day in the Palestinian Death Industry, as their Interior Minister Fathi Hamad called it.

Hamas thinks collaborators are giving away their bosses. Good. That’ll make them turn on each other, live in total fear and paranoia, and not look for the real answer.

Which I know. It’s out there in open sources. Hamas doesn’t read the news, apparently.

Hamas missiles are no longer effective

The Iron Dome has rendered Hamas missiles nearly impotent.

Nothing’s perfect, of course. But it no longer matters that Hamas missiles can reach all of Israel. The Iron Dome will just shoot them down. I’ve read several articles claiming that the Iron Dome is a total failure because it doesn’t destroy the rocket warheads, and it’s only luck that’s protected the Israelis so far.

Well, let’s see: Over 3700 rockets fired at Israel since July 8.

Not one warhead from an intercepted rocket has killed anybody in Israel.

Pretty good luck, huh? Every Israeli should immediately fly to Las Vegas or Santa Anita, California. You’ll make fortunes. Drop by and shake my hand on your way.

Or blow me a kiss.

Qatari high-tech equipment failed

Hamas broke with its Shi’ite patron Iran over the Syrian Civil War. Being Sunnis, Hamas sided with the rebels. Qatar then became Hamas’s sugar daddy.

Not only is Qatar footing the bill [for computer and networking systems], it also trained Hamas terrorists how to use sophisticated equipment and systems to manage its extensive terror tunnel system, as well, systems to fire rockets at Israel using automatic, timed launching systems…

Hamas has embedded sophisticated network systems inside its terror tunnels, giving operatives in command and control centers the ability to monitor events in any of the tunnels. Using sensors and other networked equipment, terrorists can quickly be notified if an IDF unit is advancing in a tunnel, allowing them to disperse quickly — and allowing the command and control staff to set off explosives when soldiers approach a booby trap.

Big deal. Israel still destroyed all the attack tunnels leading into Israel. Not only that, Israel improvised tunnel warfare tactics on the spot.

“Tunnel rats,” as they’re called, usually require special training. The IDF just became tunnel rats. Because they could. And now Israel is fast-tracking anti-tunnel technology. Expect a solution fairly soon.

Hamas had hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of gadgetry, while the IDF had…skill. The result can be seen in the Battle of Shijaiyah (July 20-23, 2014), one of the most bloodless, unbelievably brilliant major military operations of all time. Israeli troops attacked a gigantic fortress of bunkers, combat posts, and tunnels, which was shielded by 100,000 civilians. In seven hours, the IDF demolished the fortress, losing only 13 men and killing only 65 Palestinians.

Before I die, I hope an IDF veteran of the battle contacts me and tells me how they did it.

New Israeli technology was successful

In Operation Protective Edge, the IDF tested Tzayad, the Digital Army Program. This is a command-and-control network that links all the electronic sensors in Israel and sends the data to land, air, and sea combat units. It allows senior officers to see what’s happening and to coordinate all forces jointly. Video cameras, UAVs, and other sensors prevent friendly fire and also save the lives of civilians.

[Brig. Gen. Roy Riftin, IDF chief artillery officer] said improved target acquisition and range correction provided by Hot Transmission — the dedicated system integrating his artillery corps into the rest of the network — allowed his gunners to operate in concert with Air Force aircraft, without fear of confliction…

Riftin adamantly disputed widespread perceptions that the IDF used disproportionate force in Gaza. On the contrary, he said improved Tzayad-enabled target acquisition capabilities allowed individual batteries to fire more selectively at assigned targets.

“Remember, Shuja’iya was supposed to be evacuated. Ditto Beit Hanoun. A normal army would firstly prepare the area well with saturation fire before allowing its forces to enter.

“But we first entered our forces, determined which areas were threatening them, and then implemented our fire,” Riftin said.

“It’s a different approach that comes at a cost of tremendous work and added risk to our people, but that’s what we did. No one can be more righteous than that.”

I can’t emphasize enough that no other army in the world operates this way. The IDF entered Shijaiyah and did “reconnaissance by exposure.” They waited until the enemy began firing, and then they called in artillery strikes.

There’s literally no valid criticism of how the IDF fought Operation Protective Edge. And by the end of 2015, Israel will have TopGun, which converts artillery shells into precision-guided munitions. No more artillery barrages. Single shells will do the job.

An Iron Dome for armored vehicles—Trophy or Wind Jacket—was also used. It destroys antitank missiles in flight. The Palestinians used successful interceptions as propaganda videos purporting to show the destruction of the tanks.

An automated system identifies an incoming projectile—in this case a Hamas RPG 29 with a tank-killing tandem warhead.

RPG

Trophy intercepted and detonated the RPG before it could hit the tank. The larger fireball is the trophy launch, and the smaller is the destruction of the RPG warhead.

Hamas claimed this as a tank kill. In fact the tank was unscathed.

The Israelis have perfected the surgical strike

No fireball, no damage to the surrounding structures, and no injuries to the onlookers.

A guided cement bomb, but it looks like someone was hiding IEDs in the basement.

And look: Not a single fragmentation hole in the entire building.

Everyone else uses explosive bombs. The IDF gets the same results with inert munitions. Somehow they know where the weapons caches are located. My guess is extremely advanced synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) on unmanned aerial vehicles.

The terrorists are concealing their casualties

In a typical case, the Hamas Interior Ministry reported that the late Mahmoud Osama Abbas was a civilian, when in fact he was a ground commander in the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

He was killed because he’d conducted several attacks on Israel. Since the UN and “human rights” groups get all their casualty figures from the Palestinians, those numbers are worthless. Terrorists become thirteen-year-old boys, and the Ministry of Health lists people who didn’t even die, such as Salem Shamaly, the fake victim of a nonexistent Israeli sniper.

Palestinian death toll

The IDF says it killed about 1000 terrorists, which will turn out to be accurate.

Even the Muslim world has had enough

Hamas is affiliated with the Islamic State, formerly known as al-Qaeda in Iraq and the Sham. They are Salafist Wahabbists.

Yesterday Egypt and the United Arab Emirates bombed Wahabbist militias in Tripoli. The Muslim Brotherhood has been all but eradicated, a fate it richly deserved. Iraqi Sunnis and Shi’ites are killing Islamic State cavemen, as are Sunni Kurds and Shi’ite Iranians.

The bloodsoaked dictator Bashar al-Assad has regained his senses and is fighting the Islamic State again, while the US and Britain have recreated Task Force Black, which killed thousands of terrorists in Iraq.

Elite British and US special forces troops are forming a hunter killer unit called Task Force Black – its orders: “Smash the Islamic State.”

A source said: “We need to go into Syria and Iraq and kill as many IS members as we can. You can’t ­negotiate with these people.

The world is full of demented, dishonest, despicable dunces who say whatever the press wants them to say.

“The Islamic State is now the most capable military power in the Middle East outside Israel,” a senior regional diplomat said on Friday.

Right. No navy, no air force, no helicopters, no satellites, no transports. But all you have to do is look at them to know how capable they are.

How do they see? Their stupid masks are covering their eyes. Do they use echolocation, like bats? They’ve been taught to find their way by screeching? And the guy third from the left has made his rifle impossible to use. The strap is so shortened that he can’t even put the stock against his shoulder.

So, Israelis: When everyone tells you that once again you’ve lost—and they will—just laugh at them. Don’t even give that lie a second’s consideration.

Your troops won a magnificent victory. Tell them how proud of them I am.
