Israeli soldiers were in Nablus yesterday. Predawn raids and an air strike that killed three made yesterday one of the deadliest days in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the past year. (Nasser Ishtayeh/ Associated Press)
Yeah, delivering blood and destruction to Palestinians, a "gift" they can do without.

"Israelis raid homes in West Bank; 3 dead; Shooting suspect sought; 3 others killed in air strike" by Mohammed Daraghmeh, Associated Press | December 27, 2009
NABLUS, West Bank - Israeli soldiers stormed homes in the West Bank yesterday, killing three Palestinians suspected in the fatal shooting of an Israeli and testing an uneasy security arrangement with Palestinian authorities.
The predawn operations in Nablus targeted activists of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah movement. Abbas aides accused Israel of undermining US-backed peace efforts.
When will that fossil of a relic ever learn?
After liquidating Hamas they intend to come after you, Zionist tools.

"An Israeli man was shot and killed in the West Bank in an attack by Palestinian gunmen.
Are you SURE?
Sure it wasn't a ZETTLER!
The TIMING sure is odd and REEKS of a FALSE FLAG!
Such attacks, once common, have become rare in recent years as the West Bank has regained a semblance of normalcy.
If that is normal.... sigh .... HOW OFFENSIVE!
Yeah, Palestinian violence on Israelis has gone down as Israel has swallowed up more land and the zany zettlers have torched olive fields, killed Palestinians in far more frequent attacks, and demolished Palestinian homes.
All strangely unreported or minimized by my Zionist War Dailies.
Israeli Radio identified the man as a resident of a nearby settlement, and a little-known Palestinian faction took responsibility for the attack.
Oh, when you see LITTLE-KNOWN and UNIDENTIFIED group it is a HALLMARK of FALSE-FLAGGING INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES as well as MSM LIE!
So CUI BONO, readers?
Also, an Israeli air strike killed three Palestinians in Gaza, near Israel’s border barrier, making yesterday one of the deadliest days in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict since Israel’s war on Gaza’s Islamic militant Hamas rulers a year ago.
Merry Xmas, Gazans!
Relatives who witnessed the Nablus shootings said soldiers fired at two of the men without warning.
It is called ASSASSINATION!
An Israeli army spokesman, Major Peter Lerner, said troops fired after the three men failed to respond to calls to surrender. One of the men used his wife as a human shield, Lerner added.
Do you know HOW SICK I AM of ISRAELI LIES?
EVERY TIME they open their mouth it is a LIE!!!
Do you think I'm believing this lying s*** propaganda for a minute?
"The Goldstone report concluded that Israel used disproportionate force, deliberately targeted civilians, used Palestinians as human shields, and destroyed civilian infrastructure."
EVERY ACCUSATION the NaZionists of Israel make is SOMETHING of which THEY ARE GUILTY!!!!!!!!
It is a common trait of psychopaths.
The West Bank has been relatively calm in the past two years, as Abbas’s security forces began exerting control over former militant strongholds such as Nablus, and renewed some coordination with Israeli troops.
Yes, and ALL the PALESTINIANS KNOW IT!!
That is why HAMAS WON ELECTIONS and is GAINING in POPULARITY!!!!!
Abbas and Israel have a shared foe, Hamas, which wrested the Gaza Strip from Abbas in a 2007 takeover.
I am SICK of the OBFUSCATING Zionist MSM DISTORTIONS, too!!!
"Hamas overwhelmingly won Palestinian Parliament elections in 2006."
Yup, the MSM KNOWS THEY WON but keeps repeating the same garbage about a "takeover!"
Oh, and Hamas foiled a COUP ATTEMPT!!!!
WHY SHOULD WE BELIEVE THEM about ANYTHING -- especially any and all things Israel!
However, Abbas has complained that continued Israeli army raids in Palestinian-controlled areas of the West Bank undermine his authority. Lerner said the raids had not been coordinated with Abbas’s security forces.
F*** Abass and his complaining!!
Abbas’s prime minister, Salam Fayyad, later made a condolence visit to Nablus. “This attack was a clear assassination, and I believe it is targeting our security and stability,’’ the pragmatic, Western-backed Fayyad told the Associated Press. Fayyad has been credited with restoring law and order in large areas of the West Bank.
Oh, the REAL RULER of RUMP Palestine!!
Now I understand why Hamas clings to Gaza with all its might!
On Thursday, Palestinian gunmen killed an Israeli settler in the West Bank. The Israeli military identified suspects in the shooting as Anan Subeh, 36, Ghassan Abu Sharah, 40, and Raed Suragji, 40, all members of Fatah’s militant offshoot, the Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades.
This WHOLE THING STINKS!
Fatah TRULY DOES WORK for ISRAEL if this is true.
Before dawn yesterday, dozens of Israeli troops entered Nablus’s old city.
And CUI BONO out of all this?
Soldiers used explosives to blow open the door of the Abu Sharah family’s three-story apartment building, said Ghassan Abu Sharah’s brother, Jihad. The brother said that when Ghassan came downstairs, one of the soldiers opened fire and killed him.
Troops also used explosives at the home of Raed Suragji, said his wife, Tehani. She said her husband opened the bedroom door. “Suddenly, shots were fired at us,’’ she said. “He fell down. I started shouting. I held his head in my lap and sat on the ground.’’
Her husband died in her arms?
God damn you, Israel (on a Sunday no less)! I will SEE YOU ALL in HELL where I will FEATS UPON YOUR INNARDS, you lying, land-stealing, genocidal, mass-murdering war criminals!
I WILL SEE YOU in HELL!!!!!!
In the third raid, troops surrounded the home of Anan Subeh and ordered everyone to come out, said Subeh’s brother, Jamal. The family evacuated, but Anan Subeh stayed with a pistol and a rifle, according to his brother. The army initially said soldiers exchanged fire with the wanted man, but Lerner said Subeh did not use his weapons.
Then he was GUNNED DOWN in COLD BLOOD!!!
Troops found two pistols and two assault rifles in his possession.
Planted like in Iraq?
Subeh had been accepted in Israel’s amnesty program for Fatah gunmen, according to Nablus’s deputy governor, Anan Attireh. Most Fatah gunmen are dead, in prison, or retired, but those who remain active threatened revenge....
What, you guys going to stop doing Israel's bidding, or....
FLASHBACK:JERUSALEM - Yesterday, a Palestinian human rights group listed 116 Hamas activists who were arrested in the West Bank this week by the government dominated by the rival Fatah movement.
Jaber Wishah of the Palestinian Center for Human Rights said the Hamas members were detained in an attempt to preempt celebrations of Hamas’s 22d anniversary, marked on Monday with a huge rally in Gaza City. Palestinian Authority police spokesman Adnan Damiri said the Hamas members were only summoned and warned that Hamas celebrations were “illegal.’’
The West Bank and Gaza have been ruled by rival governments since Hamas expelled forces loyal to Abbas from Gaza in 2007. While Hamas and Fatah frequently detain and abuse each other’s members, rarely have so many people been arrested at once. A Hamas official in the West Bank, who requested anonymity, said some detainees were released yesterday, but he did not know how many.
Of course, Fatah is the preferred choice of the West Bank, right?
In Nablus, thousands joined the funeral procession for the three men yesterday.
“Why the coordination while we are under the bullets of the army?’’ chanted the angry crowd, referring to ties between Abbas’s security forces and the Israeli military.
Yes, PALESTINIANS are NOT STUPID!!!
Meanwhile, an air strike killed three Palestinians close to Israel’s northern border with Gaza. The army said the three were hit after they ignored warning shots while approaching an Israeli passenger crossing.
Now think about what a lie that must be.
The Israelis called in an AIR STRIKE near a PASSENGER CROSSING after WARNING SHOTS were fired as the Palestinians approached?
Does that MAKE SENSE TO YOU?
And apart from the abominable bullshit you will read in the Zionist War Dailies of AmeriKa, here are some related things you will never see in the Zionist AmeriKan newspapers:
“Settlers from the illegal Israeli settlement of Karmei Tsur blocked Route 60, the main highway between Jerusalem and Hebron which is used by Palestinians as well as settlers. They began attacking Palestinian cars in the road, jumping in front of them and trying to force them to stop, damaging cars and beating the Palestinians inside.
Nablus – Ma’an – An Israeli military bulldozer demolished a gas station, a grocery store, and a cargo container in the northern West Bank village of Qusra south of the city of Nablus on Wednesday. Palestinian sources told Ma’an that more than 20 Israeli military jeeps escorted a bulldozer into the village, which proceeded to demolish the structures one kilometer away from Israeli settlement Magdolin...

Israel's ambassadors and consuls generals from all over the world have been summoned to attend a conference to be held over global challenges facing Israel. The meeting to be attended in Jerusalem Al-Quds on December 27-31 is hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, headed by Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, the ministry reported on its website.
"Given that the timing of this "conference" overlaps what appears to be an escalating war of words over Shalit, I suspect that Israel is about to do something which will be seen by the world in a very negative light and wants to prepare their ambassadors and consuls to deal with the public relations disaster about to happen. Or, Israel simply does not want any key people in places where they might be arrested for war crimes." -- Wake the Flock Up
A member of Hamas' political bureau in Damascus said that Hamas would give their response to the Shalit prisoner exchange deal within three days, Israel Radio reported.
"This was published on the web yesterday. One would expect that Hamas will give its response by the 28th of this month. Israel has summoned all of its envoys home between the 27th and the 31st. If the Shalit deal does not go through, we may well see Israel use the absence of such a deal as the excuse to go in and kill every man, woman, and child left standing in Gaza, while protecting their envoys from any potential legal challenges leveled against them world-wide, to stop this massacre." -- Wake the Flock Up
THIS WEEK, hundreds of thousands gathered in the Gaza Strip for a demonstration in support of Hamas. Judging from the photos, there were between 200 and 400 thousand. Considering that there are about 1.5 million inhabitants in the Strip, most of them children, that was quite an impressive turnout - especially in view of the misery caused by the Israeli blockade that has continued throughout the year and the ruined homes that could not be rebuilt. Those who believed that the pressure on the population would cause an uprising against the Hamas government have been proved wrong.
History buffs were not surprised. When attacked by a foreign foe, every people unites behind its leaders, whoever they are. Pity that our politicians and generals don't read books....
The Gaza War "from the decision to throw the army into a densely populated area to the use of white phosphorus and flechette munitions" has raised a dark cloud over Israel . The Goldstone report, coming as it did after the gruesome pictures broadcast throughout the war by all the world's TV networks, has produced a terrible impression. Hundreds of millions of people saw and heard, and their attitude towards Israel has changed for the worse....
There is no lack of voices – both in the leadership and in the street - which talk openly about a “Cast Lead 2” as being just a matter of time....
May God have mercy on your souls, Israelis, and may He protect and watch over the Palestinians.
