After Gaza Border Flare-Up, Israel’s Netanyahu Vows ‘Lethal’ Response to Any Further Violence

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday vowed a “lethal and very painful” response to any further violence emanating from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.

Netanyahu’s warning came a day after an Israeli soldier was wounded by a sniper on the Gaza border and the IDF retaliated with strikes on a number of Hamas sites in the coastal enclave.

Following the sniper incident, Netanyahu delayed a $15 million disbursement of cash from Qatar to Gaza that was supposed to take place on Wednesday.

While observing a training exercise at an IDF base in southern Israel on Wednesday, Netanyahu — who also is currently filling the role of defense minister — told troops, “I am certain of our ability to defeat the enemy. We are challenged from north and south, and from the east and from distant arenas — we are up to the task in these arenas.”

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
