First day of New Year in Middle East begins with deadly terror attack and air raid sirens

Igal HechtIsrael Correspondent
 

The New Year in the Middle East began with a terror attack in Tel Aviv that killed two and wounded six.

The suspected gunman who opened fire in the crowded Simta Pub on Dizengoff Street, was known to police prior to the shooting and was operating under the influence of the same Islamic State ideology that led to the Paris terror attacks.

Fools like Nathan seem to forget Israel has been attacked many times, then they whine when Israel fights back ,and condemn others for attacks fore legitimate reasons. SAD PATHETIC BLIND HYPOCRITES!

Nathan W Israel is not America. And Islam invaded the middle east , and Kuwait asked for our help, why can Iraq bomb other places , but we can’t? Afghanistan was invaded by the Taliban, but Muslims can invade all they want eh? And what did Christians in the middle east do to them? They never bombed anyone and they are still being slaughtered, and the Kurds and Yadzidis are being wiped out for no reason. Of course you are too blind to face reality.

Nathan, the term end-game is a sports term. It means playing the game until there is a clear winner. Ice hockey, with sudden death overtime is the ultimate end game sport.

Yes, you are correct, German socialists of the 30’s and 40’s played the end game of war viciously, to the point they destroyed their own country: they wanted to win the war. Likewise the Japanese Imperialists played a similar end game when they bombed Pearl Harbour. Both played an end game of war against a Western enemy that was willing to fight back to the end for its freedom. Stalinist Russia, being Asian, understood how to fight back as viciously. Point being, the end game in war, as in sports, is to determine a winner between somewhat equal opponents: each trying to get an advantage over the other.

Genocide is a completely different phenomenon of horror, mainly tied in recent times to socialism: National, Soviet, Maoist, Khmer Rouge, etc., to remove defenseless people the socialists don’t like. Again you are correct, the German socialists of the 30’s and 40’s perpetuated the most reknowned genocide, but it was not part of the end game of war, it was an act of horror against defenseless Jews…except maybe the brief uprising of the Warsaw Ghetto gave the German socialists pause.

There’s a war on. How many American bombs dropped on the folks on the other side of the war? Is one more of a “terrorist” attack than the other?

Charles – speaking of “end games” smacks of Nazism and genocide to me. We should be working for peace and mutual respect, not “end games”.

War is dirty – people of all ages are killed.

It all depends upon a person’s self righteous attitude as to who wins and who loses.

If you have ever been to an islamic country and from your attitude I know you have not – you would not want to live under their rule.

Never forget – the good guys – the Allies – carpet bombed civilians in Germany to win that war.

Your attitude today is why we can never win.

We can only submit.

Because YOU are afraid to “Let slip the dogs of war”

In the end your cowardice will actually increase casualties and terror – simply by prolonging the conflict through a cowardly response.

I love how the media is now talking about how that terrorist had mental health issues from his cousin getting killed.

USSR only lost the cold war because they bankrupted themselves on their war in Afganistan.

Israel is the only Liberal (meant in the true term not the Canadian term) democracy in the world that understands the meaning of end-game. The last real Liberal democracy leaders that understood this concept were Thatcher and Reagan, who won the cold war. However, the last true Liberal Democracy leaders that actually played the end game to the end were Roosevelt and Churchill, in conjunction with Stalin, beginning the cold war. Notably Churchill, who while not realizing it, played the end game to its ultimate end for the Empire.

Beside Israel, who is now playing the end game against moslems? Russia, not just Putin but Russia. Putin is just the leader who understands how to play it. Russia is Asian in temperament, and fully understands the end-game; that is why it has ultimately won the cold war. We are still waiting for the master race of the end-game to respond to a killing of its National: when China enters it will be interesting, and they will enter.

So think of it. Our safety as a Liberal Democracy does not reside with Obama, Junior or their ilk, nor continental European major powers having only ever been oligarchies not Liberal democracies; but with Russia and China, both wanting their just due from the West as payment.

Thank you to the Western regressive socialist ideologues who falsely proclaim Liberalism for getting us to this point.

Other than that, a great 2016 to you all…except…I live in…Alberta…but maybe the rest of you will do fine, I sincerely hope so.

“The New Year in the Middle East began with a terror attack in Tel Aviv that killed two and wounded six.”

Say, that sounds exciting, nothing like that ever happens in boring ‘ol Canada.
How come the ME and Europe have all the fun ?
– say I’ve got it
- I’ll send of a tweet to our twittering PM and suggest we import some of that ME excitement here
- I bet he goes for it, He’s always open to smart ideas like that one.

I think that Israel is the most Democratic country in the world. They even have Muslim MPs elected to their Parliament. When you think of the situation they are in, this is quite an achievement.

Were you ever on Jade, Proteus or Gladius?

Not many know about islamics sitting in the Knesset – just wondering

Certainly the lefties in Canada do not acknowledge this democracy.

The figures that you quote are for all Immigrants, not just Muslims. Most of these Immigrants entered Canada during the last period of misrule by the Liberals.

Lad Reme, According to Ezra, Stephen Harper brought in about 500,000 Muslims. It looks as if he began the trend that Trudeau is continuing. Not sure why Harper did it, unless he figured he’d get their votes.

Islam is not compatible with western civilization, yet our new hero Dicktraitor Trudeau intends to fill Canada, to the brim with them.

To stop the influx of these savages, we must first stop Trudeau. Any which way we can!

There will never be peace in the Middle East until the planet ceases to exist. The conflict has been going on for a few thousand years and will never stop. That is my “ray of sunshine” comment on the subject.

I must commend the people of Israel for showing such restraint despite an ongoing barrage of terror. johnny jihad never takes a day off.
this is what happens when a medieval society meets a modern, more advanced society… they have my respect .
