why does Israel always seem to launch attacks into Palestine a couple of months before an election?

Israel has killed the Hamas military leader in a targeted rocket attack in Gaza. [link]

"Israel confirmed it had targeted Ahmed Jaabari in an air strike on a car in Gaza City, warning it was only the start of an operation to target militant groups which was launched as the Jewish state prepares for general elections in January."

"Following the strike that killed Jaabari and his bodyguard, Israel pounded the strip with more than 20 others, killing another five people, two of them children, and wounding at least 45, Hamas health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said.

The air strikes capped five days of rising tension in and around Gaza, which saw Israel killing seven Palestinians and militants firing more than 120 rockets over the border, injuring eight."

"Israeli army spokeswoman Avital Leibovich said the air strikes were just the start of an operation targeting Gaza militants and had been authorised by Chief of Staff Lieutenant General Benny Gantz"

"Israel's last major operation in Gaza began at the end of December 2008, just six weeks shy of general elections, when troops embarked on a 22-day campaign which led to the deaths of 1,400 Palestinians -- half of them civilians -- and 13 Israelis, 10 of them soldiers."

Are the Palestinians just fodder for Israeli elections...lets show how tough we are on Palestinian terrorists so we will bolster our vote?

Out of 650 rocket launches, only 28 have actually hit resdiential area,.This is due mainly to the "Iron dome" defence system which was largley funded by the United states. Thank you USA, you have saved many civilians lives.

Thanks aside, the US gets first dibs on a proven system. It was a calculated investment more than anything else.

Gazan groups fired over 100 rockets and mortars at Israeli cities and towns. A barrage against Sderot, timed to coincide with the morning commute to work, injured 3 people. One victim, physical education teacher Moshik Levy, was moderately wounded by shrapnel and glass from his car windshield which exploded in his face. A fourth person was injured while fleeing for cover, and five more people were treated for acute stress reaction. Two homes, one in Sderot and one in the Eshkol Regional Council, were damaged by direct rocket hits. United States Ambassador Dan Shapiro declared that his country "supports Israel’s right to defend itself and its citizens from these attacks.

This is happened before Israel Killed their "militant" so now answer me, why hamas started this before the elections?

Because hamas thinks that Israel will not fight back before the elections, because the people are divided and all that.

I still question why are we funding these guys?

The only thing that the U.S. funding are the Iron Dome and the Arrow system. Both are missile defense systems. the Reason for this is that the U.S. wants Israel to respond in moderation toward the Arabs.
