Israel Asks: What Would You Do?
For liberals, the answer would be a bit of navel gazing, wondering “what did we do to make Hamas send a constant rain of rockets which intentionally target civilians?” Remember, they took this tact almost immediately after 9/11.
(Washington Times) The official Twitter account for the Israeli Defense Forces on Monday sent out a picture of the London skyline being bombarded with missiles and the caption “What would you do?” as fighting continued in Gaza.
“Hamas terrorists just fired rockets at southern and central Israel. What if they were attacking your home?” reads the tweet, which is accompanied by a doctored image of incoming rockets and an explosion over the Houses of Parliament.
An IDF spokesman told The Telegraph the picture was crafted by the military’s “interactive media branch” to illustrate what Israel is going through as Hamas launches rockets at targets in the country.
“It’s an iconic image. When people look at the image they realize what country we’re talking about,” said Captain Eytan Buchman. “If a rocket landed near Westminster, it’s not a reality that any country could tolerate.”

From the Telegraph article
James Clappison MP, the Parliamentary Chairman of Conservative Friends of Israel, supported the advert.
“For a long time rockets have been fired into Israel and that hasn’t been reported. We would not permit rockets to be fired at our country. We would take action.”
He added he wanted to see an end to the bloodshed but added: “This is Hamas’ choice. The ball is in their court.”
Obviously, the Typical Hamas Apologists did not like the tweet, and Blame Israel, showing their Israeli hatred and hatred of Jews. Hamas are the ones targeting civilians and surrounding their arms with human shields, including children, yet the Israel haters call Israel the terrorists and bad guys. It wasn’t Israel which tore down the 3,000 greenhouses in Gaza and turned it into a war camp.
Every single #FreeGaza supporter has the blood of children on their hands.
