Wanna Play the New Gaza Game?

By Yisrael Medad

The first version of the Gaza Game we know from the past operations (Cast Lead; Pillar of Defense):

Israel is acting disproportionally.

Israel strikes mainly civilians, usually old women and children, and the handicapped.

Rarely do we actually hit terrorists.

Israel commits genocide, even slow-motion genocide.

Israel uses cancer-inducing weapons and DIME weapons.

And much, much more.

So, let's upgrade the game.

Let's do it, of course, virtually as we wouldn't want anyone to actually get injured or worse or any property damaged.

The rules?

We imagine what would or could be.

We think of all those rockets and projectiles that Hamas fires off.  The last three full days:

Sunday, July 13
Summary of the day:
More than 130 rockets were fired from Gaza towards Israel.
At least 102 rockets struck Israel.
22 rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system.

Saturday, July 12
Summary of the day:
More than 129 rockets were fired from Gaza towards Israel.
At least 117 rockets struck Israel.
9 rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system.
The IDF hit 120 terror targets in the Gaza Strip.

Friday, July 11
Summary of the day:
More than 140 rockets were fired from Gaza towards Israel.
At least 107 rockets struck Israel.
27 rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system.
The IDF hit 235 terror targets in the Gaza Strip.

and at this moment of posting,

Since the start of the operation,
Over 1000 rocket have been launched at Israel.
754 of those rockets hit Israel
Approximately 201 rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system.
 

and we try to imagine the damge and death that could have resulted.

The children in the kindergartens and summer camps, the old-age homes, the Beduions, the Arabs in their villages, in the synagogues, and so-forth and so-on.

And then we try to imagine, given this figure:

The IDF has targeted over 1,474 terror targets, with both naval and aerial capabilities.

and these latest figures:

162 Palestinians Killed, of Whom 137 Are Civilians, Including 34 Children and 28 Women, and 1,058 Others Wounded, Mostly Civilians, Including 332 Children and 212 Women;

and again, we imagine couldn't Israel do so much more damage, so much more destruction if Israel was truly guilty of all the claimed crimes and as evil as our enemies portray us?

And then, at game's end, we know how truly just is our cause and how truly moral our behavior.
