The IDF has finally taken to YouTube

Reader comment on item: Israel's War on Hamas: A Dozen Thoughts

Submitted by Dr RJP (United States), Dec 31, 2008 at 16:00

Finally, Israel is seeing the light at the end of the Internet tunnel and is using it to tell their side of the story. This is long loverdue, seeing as how the jihadis have made the Net their personal recruiting ground, and a ready-made venue for Pallywood productions.

After having them removed by Google, thanks to Palestinians tagging them as inappropriate, Google reposted the IDF videos showing the world how Hamas fires its rockets from civilian centers, homes, schools, mosques, etc, and also what happens when a precision IDF strike is made on a rocket launcher and truck packed with rockets.

There is a white ball of flame and smoke encircling the launcher and truck with no collateral damage; but, then, after a long five seconds later, a rocket can be seen flying sideways, with its vapor trail plainly visible, until it strikes a building complex about 500 meters away, at which point it explodes, and who knows if any civilians are injured or killed by the blast. One thing is certain, however, that if there were any civilians casualties, especially children, every Hamas operative and supporter would be stepping all over themselves to get videos of it, an label it an intentional attack by Israeli warplanes.

Not only can viewers see how Hamas rockets can go off course and hit a Palestinian building, they now have proof that what Hamas has been using to bombard Israel are not "toy rockets" as the Leftist morons at the New york Times have often called them in their biased reports.
