Exclusive: Israeli cabinet okays Hamas, Jihad Islami targets for attack

Hamas hard-liner Mahmoud a-Zahar
DEBKAfile’s military sources disclose that Israel’s security cabinet approved Wednesday, March 5, a series of terrorist targets for early attacks as part of a sustained military offensive against escalated Palestinian attacks from Gaza on Israeli civilians.
Prime minister Ehud Olmert and defense minister Ehud Barak earlier obtained a quiet nod from US secretary of state Condoleezza Rice before she wound up her visit. These targets are revealed here by DEBKAfile:
1. Chiefs and senior officers of Hamas’ and Jihad Islami’s armed wings.
2. Their senior political officials in the Gaza strip, excluding prime minister Ismail Haniyeh, but including hard-line Mahmoud a-Zahar.
3. Hamas and Jihad institutions, including police stations.
These decisions were taken at the security cabinet’s first exhaustive review of Israel’s Gaza options.
DEBKAfile’s sources reveal the ministers considered demolishing urban districts in Gaza which serve as launching pads for missiles after evacuating their inhabitants. No final decision was reached on this.
Our military sources report that these strikes are expected to let loose a stepped up Hamas Grad rocket barrage against Ashkelon or even points further north, such as Ashdod, both important Mediterranean port cities. Sderot, Netivot and Ofakim may also come under heavy missile attack and Hamas will make a supreme effort to bring off suicide attacks inside Israel.
Notwithstanding this expectation, the defense minister is determined to deny Hamas the ability to create a balance of deterrent with Israel. Therefore, the Israeli operation will persist even under heavy Hamas assaults.
In any case, the Palestinians launched a fresh onslaught on the heels of Rice’s departure after her talks with Palestinian and Israel leaders.
Five Katyusha rockets fired from Gaza at Ashkelon exploded on empty ground south of the city; four Qassam missiles were aimed at as Sderot and the Eshkol farming region, raising the total from Wednesday morning to eight.
Our military sources believe that the five rockets were deliberately aimed to explode harmlessly as a warning from Hamas of the violence in store if Israeli goes ahead with more military offensives. Military experts informed the cabinet that this was further proof that Hamas is now capable of precise targeting against specific locations.
GEORGE W. BUSH SET TO endorse John McCain today.
Vt. towns approve Bush 'indictment'
Residents of Vermont Towns Vote to Support Hypothetical Bush-Cheney Indictment
Mar 04, 2008 20:23 EST
Voters in two Vermont towns approved measures Tuesday calling for the indictment of President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for what they consider violations of the Constitution.
I am an old man now and I see things very different than when I was much younger. The AMERICA I grew up in and cared so much about is now gone and the new generation are going to vote with a different mindset than us ole timers. They really have no clue what is in for them and these are TIMES THAT TRY MENS SOULS.
My Father worked in the Brooklyn Navy Yard during World War II and he worked the night shift for 5 solid years, he hated the hours but he knew it had to be done. These are the sacrifices people made in order for us to not only survive but to win against the AXIS POWERS OF WW II. There was a dedication then that has been long gone in this country as well as the world.
Today is the primary election day in TEXAS where I live. I doubt that I will vote because I have no clue who to vote for that is in the best interest of AMERICA. We have a choice of candidates that is unreal, the strangest election I can ever remember. The new first time registered voters will be coming out of the woodwork to vote, they are living an illusion to say the least. They hear these speeches and have no clue what they are in for when it comes to reality.
There is no longer a cure that I can see to remedy the past 20 years of wrong decisions. I am guided by the HOLY BIBLE and I sincerely believe that this is all pre ordained in order to teach the world a final lesson that they will never forget. There is a higher power that the younger generation as a whole do not even understand. They are to busy playing their GAMEBOYS and other computer generated things that I know nothing about.
There has been much talk this week about PASTOR JOHN HAGEE OF SAN ANTONIO, Tx. who I have followed for many years, although I have different beliefs, there are many people that believe in the RISING BEAST and its happening right before your eyes and very few can see it. Pastor Hagee has been very good to ISRAEL and I admire him for that.
In my religion and my beliefs we have been sold out and the war of GOG-U-MAGOG is almost upon us, most people will argue to the death of who GOG is. I will not state my opinion as I am just a worker and I will let it go at that. I will say this, In order for the MESSIAH to come according to HEBREW LAW the third temple of KING SOLOMON must be built at the very location specified in the scriptures. I am telling you this for a reason as things are happening that most do not understand.
The big problem is the Golden Dome of the ROCK and the TEMPLE MOUNT that is ISLAMIC is in the way. About 3 weeks ago that very place was hit with an earth quake and now the temple mount foundation is crumbling. This is a sign from G-D and it is just a matter of time. I can tell you which scripture to read but most of you will not so I will not bother. ISRAEL is run by "EREV RAV" traitors that will soon pay a pre ordained price because they have traded land for a piece of paper and it all started when Jimmy Carter made Menachem Begin give back the Sinai to Egypt, this was the beginning of the end. This is where Moses received the TEN commandments.
As the clock continues to click to a final solution, here at home and around the world our military is broken, it just kills me to see our men and women get shot up and at the mercy of enemies still living in the 15th century with towels on their head and wearing sandals and using armor piercing ammunition against our vehicles. We have let our military down, the 8 years of Clinton did not help our military as they did nothing to help that I know of. How can I ever think of trusting Mrs. Clinton now - impossible...
We keep investing millions in technology and this rag tag bunch of illiterate people are killing us every day. Our politicians are living in a dream world, there is no one I can confidentially vote for, to this day after listening to all their speeches I still do not know what any of them stand for. I am as confused as ever. Obama talks a good game but says nothing and when McCain gets together with his advisers it looks like the golden age club at a self care facility.
The thing I dislike about McCain right off the top is that every few words he says he goes "MY FRIENDS" = this is a very bad way to get my attention as I can not buy any of this, WASHINGTON IS BROKEN AND ROMNEY WAS RIGHT. He is the one that said this. I would like to have a private conversation with John McCain.
In the end it will not matter as if you just read your Bible, there are certain scriptures that explain what is coming and these younger people I would venture to say many do not even own a Bible, much less read it or understand it.
You still must prepare for hard times as only the strong and well prepared will have a clue how to survive in coming times which seem to be getting closer day by day. I will continue to update you the very best I can, but expect to see your country deteriorate as no country can stay solvent unless as MICHAEL SAVAGE SAYS - ITS BORDERS, LANGUAGE, CULTURE....without that your country is gone. you are watching the us dollar totally collapse before your eyes in favor of the "EURO" which has only been in existence for 5 years. And here comes the Russian Rubble.
AS GOES RUSSIA, SO GOES THE WORLD.
PUTIN of RUSSIA is now surrounded on his southern border by the American military and hes fuming mad, hes no one to fool with. WE CAN NOT BE THE POLICEMEN OF THE WORLD. We can not even take care of our problems within our own country. YOU CAN NOT MAKE A THEOCRACY INTO A DEMOCRACY. NAME ME ONE COUNTRY ON THIS PLANET THAT IS ISLAMIC THAT IS A FULL FLEDGED DEMOCRACY = YOU CAN NOT - even TURKEY IS NOT.
The world of ISLAM wants a world CALIPHATE government run by SHARIA LAW.
ITS ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT HUMAN GREED which revolves around oil and power and money. Until we finally get some honest people in Washington with TERM LIMITS we are doomed to have more of the same as we implode. Going back to the same people that have been in power for 25 years or more will just dig you in a deeper hole but the new people must not use advisers with the same old ideas.
It is my personal opinion only that G-D is now in control of events and the play has been written in STONE and regardless of whether the actors change the end results of this play will be what G-D wants. Just to show you how accurate these scriptures are read ISAIAH CHAPTER 30, VERSE 25 and read about the TWIN TOWERS - this was written 700 years before the Christian era.
I have now said enough, its time for you to read this over and over and decide if I make any sense. This is the way I see things. If there is an attack on America or a conflict - President Bush 43 has the legal authority to cancel the Presidential elections in 2008.
Thanks for reading my blog. These are my personal opinions only.
Introducing the world's smallest gun that fires deadly 300mph bullets - but is just TWO inches longLast updated at 13:43pm on 5th March 2008

Scroll down for more...
At just over two inches long it is the world's smallest gun - but the 300mph bullets it fires mean it is still deadly
Costing £3,000 in stainless steel, a gold-plated, diamond-studded version is also available.
It cannot be imported into the UK, and buyers in Switzerland and Europe must get a permit from police to own one.
The gun is banned in the US - because it is too small to qualify for sporting purposes.
The Swiss Minigun, which is being marketed as a collector's item, is just 5.5cm long, and fires 4.53mm bullets up to 112 metres
