Israel Strikes 34 ´Terror Targets´ in
Gaza After Bodies of Israeli Teens Found

ABC News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/1/2014 4:42:58 AM

The Israeli Air Force carried out what it called "precision strikes" on 34 "terror targets" in the Gaza Strip overnight, after the discovery of the bodies of three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped in the West Bank earlier this month. The Israeli Defense Forces said the strikes were in response to rockets being launched earlier into Israel from Gaza. The waves of rockets from Gaza and IDF retaliations have picked up since the teens were kidnapped and the Israeli crackdown began. Hamas has not claimed responsibility for launching the rockets but Israel holds them responsible for everything coming out of Gaza. The Israel Defense

Too bad Israel didn´t wipe out the whole Gaza strip. If Barry were in charge, he´d be waving the white flag and telling the jihadist freaks that the country could sustain more hits and make security back down so it could happen.

Israel is trying to demonstrate to Obama what a real,decisive president does when their people are under threat.Obama hopes for a stroke of good luck or a kneepad media to bail him out.A president´s main job is decision making and Obama fails horribly short at that unless the issue undermines the Constitution.

Good. Israel is an island of sanity in the middle of a sea of the criminally insane. Bibi understands he must protect his people. Ignoring these murders would only embolden the terrorists. Thank God there are still men in the world who understand evil. It is nigh to impossible to try and reason with people who have no conscience and are permanently aggrieved. They must understand, however, that they will be held accountable for their evil deeds. Swift retribution was warranted. Well done, Israel.

Well, DUH!!! Who else would it be, Bill Ayres?

If Israel would drop a 500# bomb on a nearby marketplace every time the palis launched a rocket, the arabs might get the idea it isn´t smart to mess with Israel.

I wonder if we could give Israel a contract to completely mine our borders with Mexico in between double fences of course. Be a good idea to put up signs about the mines in every language except those spoken in terrorist states.

There are bodies of children being found in the desert. This action would save lives. Give Nancy Pelosi a solo tour. She only speaks incoherent liberal ramblings.

There is No evidence at all that Hamas did this.... Some rogue individuals perhaps, yes, and they should be tried in a court of law. Mossad could have done it to ounish Palestine for creating a unity government. I wouldnt put it past them. Real Democracies shouldnt go out doing mass bombings of civlians... If you agree to allow it, what will stop some freak like Obama from doing it here to us? There will have been a precedent! What were those ILLEGAL Aliens doing in Palestine anyway? They didnt deserve to die for being there, but why are their families squatting on stolen land? Our govt has LIED to us about everythjng else, so what makes you think they are now magically telling the truth about this!?? These settlements are for Jews ONLY...you are not welcome or allowed there as a Gentile. If that isnt discrimination, I Dont know what is. Wake up...these settlers are the oroblem! If illegals squatted on YOUR land, what would you do?

Priority #1: Kill terrorists. Israel has that part right. Better than US policy.

Priority #2: Convince the average Muslim on the street that extremism causes only more pain and loss, and they should turn on the terrorists. How many Muslim refugees are out there that have lost everything including family because of the terrorists? Millions.

When the First World War began in June 1914, the automobile was in the middle of its awkward teen years. The vehicles had popped up in the hands of the wealthy and early adopters, and Henry Ford had just started mass production of the Model T. But getting around on horseback was still the go-to mode of transportation. The war helped change that. World War I was shaped by a whole pile of new vehicles were born of developed during the fours years of conflict. One hundred years after the start of the war, we’re taking a look back at

With illegal immigrant leaders picketing the White House, screaming demands that President Obama include them in “any future negotiations;” with the possibly orchestrated influx of unaccompanied children from Central America jumping the U.S. border with questionable motives; and with the White House gleefully doing anything it wants and taunting the Republicans into a suicidal impeachment frenzy over the failed rule of law, American politics is degenerating into a surreal drama of criminal hubris, strategic cunning and livid stupidity. The impeachment rage is easy to quench by a constitutional reminder: a simple majority vote by the Republican-controlled House could easily pass

In the early hours of Saturday morning, under the cover of the Mediterranean darkness, US warships quietly moved into place off the North African coast. We can’t say how many, but among them were a destroyer, the USS Ross, and a guided-missile cruiser, the USS Vella Gulf. At about the same time, three F16 fighter jets took off from Aviano Air Base in Italy and headed south, along with two MV-22 Osprey transport planes carrying a full complement of rapid reaction force marines from another US base in Italy, Sigonella. Surveillance drones circled overhead, and in support flew a KC-135

FORT WORTH, Texas – The U.S. has barred a shipment of Kurdish crude oil from reaching the Texas coast amid concerns independent oil sales from Kurdistan could further weaken Iraq´s fragile central government as it struggles to contain a Sunni military offensive. A U.S. District judge ordered a U.S. Marshal to seize the cargo — about 1 million barrels of crude oil, worth about $100 million — aboard the tanker United Kalavryta in response to a complaint filed by the Iraqi government claiming the oil was smuggled out of Kurdistan without its permission.

BAMAKO, Mali — The cash filled three suitcases: 5 million euros. The German official charged with delivering this cargo arrived here aboard a nearly empty military plane and was whisked away to a secret meeting with the president of Mali, who had offered Europe a face-saving solution to a vexing problem. Officially, Germany had budgeted the money as humanitarian aid for the poor, landlocked nation of Mali. In truth, all sides understood that the cash was bound for an obscure group of Islamic extremists who were holding 32 European hostages, according to six senior diplomats directly involved in the exchange.

Second-term presidents rarely achieve as much as they did during their four years in office, either because top aides tend to be off their political game or because of external events. Reagan´s second term team, for example, was greatly distracted by the Iran-Contra scandal. George W. Bush´s second term was consumed by Hurricane Katrina and the economic collapse of 2007. As a result, second-term presidents tend to spend their final days in the Oval Office with low public approval ratings and rapidly waning influence on the course of events. President Obama is certainly following the familiar path with approval ratings sinking into

NEW YORK- Americans have a debt problem. An estimated 1 in 3 adults with a credit history -- or 77 million people -- are so far behind on some of their debt payments that their account has been put "in collections." That´s a key finding from a new Urban Institute study. It examined non-mortgage debt, including credit card bills, car loans, medical bills, child support payments and even parking tickets. The debt in collections ranged from as little as $25 to a whopping $125,000. But the average amount owed was $5,200. Geographically, no area of the country is untouched. Among

A statement put out today by President Barack Obama on the occasion of a religious holiday is raising some eyebrows. The holiday is a Muslim one called "Eid-al-Fitr" and the statement says: his last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease. In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to

Like many on the right, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer is politically opposed to impeaching President Barack Obama. But on Tuesday, he declared that legally, the rumored White House order granting amnesty to as many as 6 million illegal immigrants “would be an impeachable offense” — and Obama’s talk of impeachment may be a way to preempt that pushback. Krauthammer spoke with Fox News’s Bret Baier on a panel with The Hill’s A.B. Stoddard and Fox News contributor Juan Williams. The group discussed the impeachment buzz swirling around Washington, which most observers agree is being ginned up by Democrats eager for

Israel unleashed its heaviest bombardment in its three-week-old campaign against Hamas in Gaza on Tuesday as the Obama administration battled the growing perception among Israelis that Secretary of State John F. Kerry is a hapless bumbler in search of a cosmetic truce. Diplomatic efforts remained stalled despite a death toll that Palestinian officials said rose above 1,200 on Tuesday. The shadowy leader of the Hamas military wing said his group will not cease fire until an economic embargo is ended and other demands are met. After his latest round of mediation failed to achieve a cease-fire, Mr. Kerry has been

President Obama demanded that Israel agree to a one-sided cease-fire during a heated phone conversation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to a report aired on Israeli TV Tuesday. Both leaders quickly denounced the purported transcript of their private discussion as fake. But the TV channel that obtained it, state-run Channel 1, stood by its account. In one bitter exchange, Obama declared that Qatar and Turkey — Hamas’ biggest international supporters — would mediate with the terrorists on Israel’s behalf, according to the TV channel. “I trust Qatar and Turkey. Israel is not in the position that it can choose its mediators,” the president

You can understand President Obama´s current political problems -- and how those problems could make things very tough for his party in this fall´s midterm election -- in a single word.

Inside Hoboken’s combined junior-senior high school is a storage closet. Behind the locked door, some mothballed laptop computers are strewn among brown cardboard boxes. Others are stacked one atop another. Dozens more are stored on mobile computer carts, many of them on their last legs. That’s all that remains from a failed experiment to assign every student a laptop at Hoboken Junior Senior High School.
