More in Israel's pushback against the Judenhass Arabs

The last few days has seen the Arabs of Gaza find out just what kind of whirlwind they inherit when they insist on pursuing their agenda of annihilation of the "Zionist Entity."

Personally, I think Israel has been quite restrained in their response to the ongoing acts of war that Hamas and its ilk has been engaging in since Israel totally disengaged from Gaza.

The latest has Israel actually rounding up and arresting members of the Hamas run "government".

An Israeli military official said a total of 64 Hamas officials were arrested in the early morning roundup. Of those, [Arab] Palestinian officials said seven are ministers in Hamas' 23-member Cabinet and 20 others are lawmakers in the 72-seat parliament.

[Arab] Palestinian Deputy Prime Minister Nasser Shaer, parliament speaker Abdel Aziz Duaik and Religious Affairs Minister Nayef Rajoub, brother of former West Bank strongman Jibril Rajoub of the rival Fatah party, were among those rounded up.

Officials will be questioned and eventually indicted, the Israeli army and government officials said.

Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev said the ministers and lawmakers were not taken as bargaining chips for Shalit's release, but because Israel holds Hamas responsible for attacks against it.

"The arrests of these Hamas officials ... is part of a campaign against a terrorist organization that has escalated its war of terror against Israeli civilians," Regev said.
