Israel has suffered mightily under the Biden regime. And this latest attack against Israel got me thinking. I wondered how many times Israel had been attacked during the era of Biden.
I got my answer.
According to this source, the ongoing attacks against Israel got worse under Biden.
In May of this year, Israel got bombarded by rockets. So far, there have been 14 attacks against Israel, including the one from Saturday. When it’s all said and done, I expect this attack to be the worse in modern history.
But before move on, let’s look at the previous year.
2022 was a good year for Israel with only 8 attacks. But in one attack, Israel has 1,100 rockets shot at them. No other country knows this type of terrorism on such a routine basis.
Look at the year 2021.
Eleven attacks occurred in 2021; almost one per month. But one attack was ferocious.
That attack happened from May 10-20, where over 4,000 rockets were launched at Israel.
Go to the link for more information, but I will summarize with this.
Under Trump, Israel had the fewest attacks against them on average. The best year under Trump had Arabs attacking Israel 5 times.
Under Obama, the number of attacks in multiple years were solidly in the double-digits.
The dichotomy couldn’t be more clear. Under Obama terrorism soared; under Trump, terrorists were cautious to say the least.
This latest attack by Hama broke the proverbial camel’s back with Israel.
CNN reported on the events from Saturday.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the country is “at war” following a surprise large-scale attack by Palestinian militants from Gaza early Saturday morning.
The militant group Hamas, which controls the coastal enclave, fired a barrage of rockets and sent gunmen into Israel in a multi-pronged and unprecedented attack in the long-running conflict between the two sides.
“Citizens of Israel, we are at war – not in an operation, not in rounds – at war,” Netanyahu said in a video message.
Israeli authorities said that at least 70 people were killed and at least 985 injured and that a number of Israelis had been taken captive by Hamas.
Israel’s military responded by launching airstrikes on what it said were Hamas targets in Gaza, where Palestinian officials said at least 198 people were killed and hundreds more injured as a result.
Those numbers continue to rise.
At Around 6:30 a.m. local time on Saturday, when many Israelis were likely to have been asleep, sirens were heard as far north as the Tel Aviv area, east to Beer Sheba, and many other locations in between as rockets flew over Israel.
Militants from Gaza then entered Israeli territory by land, sea and air, with some using paragliders, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said. It warned Israelis who live near Gaza to stay in their homes.
Social media video obtained by CNN also showed multiple masked gunmen in a pickup truck driving down a street in the Israeli city of Sderot, which lies close to the Gaza border. Gunfire could also be heard in the video.
The IDF said around 2,200 rockets were fired at Israel. Hamas put the figure at 5,000. To put that in context, some 4,000 rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel during the 50-day war between the two sides in 2014.
Hamas military commander Muhammad Al-Deif called the operation “Al-Aqsa Storm” and said that the assault on Israel was a response to attacks on women, the desecration of the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem and the ongoing siege of Gaza.
Hell to pay.
I’ve seen the horrible videos being displayed by Hamas. They have captured Israeli soldiers and civilians, as well as American citizens. We are seeing videos of people being killed or brutalized, in a move that will backfire on Hamas.
The barbary of these people is on full display. And much of what is happening in Israel is the fault of Democrats and Joe Biden.
Donald Trump left the world a safer place. Everybody in America knows this, including Never Trumpers, anti-Trumpers, Democrats, Leftists, and certainly MAGA. Hamas put a fork in Biden, not that Trump needed that to happen.
Policies of the Obama and Biden administrations condoned and funded terrorism. And the electorate won’t let them forget it.
