My, that was satisfying. Every radio in the world that plays that racket should have such a remote switch.

This should be happening every hour, on the hour, until so-called palestinians parade the severed heads of the PA and Hamas through the streets.

Guess he got his convertible; IDF tore the roof right off. I think all the other jihadis should get convertibles, too.

Yes, very satisfying when prayers are answered.

I wish Israel would engage in that 365/24/7 until the world is right again.

Nice to see the savages get theirs! Sweet.

Couldn't help but notice that the Israeli .. drone, most likely .. waited until the car was outside the danger zone of that pedestrian before firing.

No doubt my intellectual superiors the Western media will also catch what should be obvious to any five year old and will finally have that much delayed epiphany about Israel.

Looked like homie went flying upward. For a milisecond he had a hope of seventy-fold Muslim booty and then God slapped him into hell where the Barbarians end up. Payback is a mother, Akmal!

The Jihadi's operating in our nation, and openly, are Democrats by strict definition of Jihad.

Life now imitates cartoons.

Killers discussing Jar Jar Binks and convertibles, movies and musical selections.

Then, Boom, as Wiley Coyote is detonated.

All that's needed is slow mo of one of the guys flying through the air making a gesture with shrugged shoulders and palms up. Then SPLAT against the building.

Canned laughter.

Beep Beep as the IDF flies away.

That's all folks.

This is what we must with to our enemies — kill them. Scowling and scolding is weak and submissive. Sitting around talking about it is ineffectual.

Appears the muslim on the left in the vehicle has a charred bone in his hand. Must be looking for something to hang from the wall in his domicile. A trophy to him I suppose. Blood thirsty monsters from century six.

"Couldn't help but notice that the Israeli .. drone, most likely .. waited until the car was outside the danger zone of that pedestrian before firing."

Unpossible. You simply cannot exercise that much control of time-to-target with any sort of guided munition - they do not allow you to fly around for another pass. It is also extremely unlikely one would have traveled the entire field of view in that video without leaving some sort of video trail (vapor if nothing else.)

No, that was an explosive device hidden within the vehicle, and command detonated. Maybe from a drone, or maybe from boots on the ground.

Which is exactly why the Israelis would very much like you, and everyone else to think that it was some sort of guided weapon - someone had to be there to plant the thing.

The more the Palis believe that it was some sort of miracle munition the less likely they are to start rooting around for persons who might have had access to that car prior to it going all shards and flames.
