Huge plumes of black smoke billow
into the sky as Israeli airforce launches
30 air strikes on Palestinian targets after
Hamas fires ´dozens´ of rockets into Israel

Daily Mail [UK], by Leon Watson

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/7/2014 6:00:38 PM

Hamas militants in Gaza have fired ´dozens´ of rockets into southern Israel after six of its men died in an Israeli airstrike, the Islamist group said. The bombardment was confirmed by the Israeli army which said militants had launched ´a few dozen rockets´ within a short period of time. [Snip] At least four rockets were intercepted over Netivot by the Iron Dome anti-missile system, while another 16 struck the area around the southern city of Beersheva, some 40 kilometres (25 miles) from Gaza, and which is home to 200,000 people, the army said. Media reports put the number of rockets

What the Palestinian cockroaches do not seem to realize that if Israel takes the gloves off, they are toast! One of these days their little missiles are going to hit something that will enrage the Israelis into a retaliation effort they will not believe!

And once again today the idiot Secretary of State John Kerry called on Israel to show restraint. al-sisi in Egypt is a better ally to Israel than we are. He´s fed up with Hamas too.

Our insane president has attacked Israel every time it defends itself. And yet leftist Jews in the US continue to support Obama. I don´t get it.

#2 is correct, the Muslim cockroaches will never live in peace with Israel or any other democracy. Sad, but the only thing they understand or respect is force. Time to unleash massive force.

Otherwise, we will not survive as a free country.

It too brave Polish horseman warriors to defeat the Muslims at the Battle of Vienna, or Europe would already be under evil sharia law. Time to mount up again.

Good article, but I think it spends an inordinate amount of time on the Khdeir kid and terrorist funerals. Three Israeli and Israeli/American teenagers were murdered, starting this whole crisis. That´s where my sadness lies.

The one thing I will never forgive GW Bush for is the ´religion of peace´ crap. It is not and never has been. Since when does a ´religion of peace´ call for the murder of those who convert to another religion? ONLY Muslims have that as Holy Writ. That is just one example. And with NO apologies to ´American peaceful Muslims´. Peaceful my saddle sores.

Yep, the "religion of peace" meme was a huge mistake. I understand why but it was a boneheaded idea that gave the terrorists cover. Theirs is not a religion of peace or we would not see such brutality in its name. If the "moderates" don´t like that then they need to reform their religion and excommunicate the terrorists.

As for Israel, they are now trying to clean up the mess that Obama has made in the Middle East. Look no further than his skinny behind to see that he is the one who has emboldened them to escalate the violence against Israel by enabling them with his weakness. Obama has set the Middle East on fire and looks around and says, "Who me?"

Note the Palestinian slant; pictures of little girls, teenaged boys. No pictures of the dead Jewish boys from Israel? This is propaganda at its worst and shows how pictures manipulate emotions.

No doubt there is carnage in the "Palestinian targets", but if they would stop strapping bombs to themselves in crowded marketplaces and blowing up Israelis, maybe some of this would calm down.

When is the last time an Israeli strapped a bomb to himself and deliberately blew up a crowded night club or restaurant, with innocent civilians? Right. Never.

These reprisals come after long periods of great patience from Israel. They have decided "never again" again.

Israel IS showing restraint. I don´t think the idiot in the White House or his pal, the buffoon from Massachusetts get that. Israel protects its people and its borders while the U.S. Government opens the borders to everybody who has two legs to walk across the bridge. Don´t think we aren´t keeping score, Barry. We know a real leader when we see one and you ain´t it.

I have said for years that Israel needs to tell everyone in the Gaza strip and the Israeli state of Palestine that they have 24 hours to get themselves to Syria or Egypt (whichever is closer) and then send the Israeli army in to clean house.

Think of it like the fumigation that will be undertaken at the People´s House in January 2017.

#´s 14 & 15: On June 29th, we had a fantastic video of Brigitte Gabriel in the Must Reads here:

http://www.mrctv.org/videos/heritage-foundation-panelist-radical-islam

It is well worth viewing again. Her recurring theme, as she enumerated the major atrocities of the 20th century, was: "And the peaceful majority was irrelevant."

Picking up her theme, it is safe to say that "moderate" Muslims who remain silent -- and those of us who do not vigorously protest the roaring loss of US sovereignty occurring at our southern (non)border -- are today´s peaceful majority. They (and we) are IRRELEVANT!

Proportional Response; the strategy that has perpetuated this conflict since WWII. Until the peaceful Palestinians(?) fear Israel more then they do the terrorist savages living in their midst this will go on. A policy of EXTREME RESPONSE (I call it Nuke and Pave) will shorten this conflict and, in the long run, save lives.

´Israel´s Most Bitter

The harsh criticism flung by US President Barack Obama´s administration against Israel this week for a building project in Jerusalem is only a sign of things to come, according to Attorney Yoram Sheftel. [Snip] Writing in his weekly Hebrew column for Arutz Sheva, Sheftel wrote "Obama doesn´t want a nuclear Iran, but he wants an Iran that can enrich uranium and threaten Israel--it´s one of the most hostile regimes for Israel that wants Iran to threaten us, because today we have no more bitter enemy in the western world than the United States."

Jeremy Clarkson has told how he and his Top Gear team were forced to flee Argentina under police escort as furious thugs tried to ´kill´ them. Rock-throwing protesters vowed to ´barbecue´ the controversial motoring show host after a row over the star´s number plate boiled over. Trouble erupted after a photo of Clarkson, 54, driving a Porsche with the number plate H982 FKL, circulated online, enraging Falklands War veterans who claimed it referred to the 1982 conflict. The presenter yesterday said the violent protest was ´state-organised´ accusing the Argentinians of taking advantage of their visit for ´political capital´.

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300. [Snip] It’s hard to think of a more cack-handed, dangerously inept response than what transpired in Dallas. Consider what we now know: Thomas Eric Duncan, a 42-year-old Liberian citizen, had been

Health experts assembled by the White House conceded on Friday that a second case of Ebola could be identified in the U.S. But they defiantly insisted that the epidemic plaguing western Africa will not rise to the level of a major American outbreak. [Snip] But the overall feeling of the sparsely attended afternoon press conference was one of complacency, with the Obama administration´s top Ebola spear-catchers saying over and over that Americans have nothing to fear even though the government has no plans to close airports to planes originating in at the disease´s ground-zero.

Health officials have admitted their response to the potential Ebola outbreak in Texas has been ‘rocky’--amid growing concern over how a patient with the virus was able to get through customs, was initially turned away from hospital with painkllers and Hazmat teams then took five days to properly quarantine his relatives. [Snip] However, during the press conference he also said things did go right--mentioning that Thomas Eric Duncan was now in isolation and being treated properly. But he ignored the length of time of the response and the fact that hundreds of people may have been unnecessarily exposed to the

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

It has been precisely a month since corpulent young dictator Kim Jong Un disappeared from public view, prompting frenzied speculation about his health and the state of political play in North Korea. Kim was last seen at a Sept. 3 concert, ensconced in a red easy chair next to his wife, Ri Sol Ju. Late last month, the youthful marshal was a no-show at a meeting of North Korea’s rubber-stamp legislature. The cloistered nation’s state-run TV aired images of his seat at parliament—empty. But North Korea experts say that the likeliest reason is also the simplest: That the Supreme Leader

Three US citizens are fighting in Syria, the British Daily Mail reports Friday. But unlike most foreign nationals, they are fighting against - not for - jihadists. One of the Americans has been identified as Jordan Matson (28) from Racine, Wisconsin, a spokesman for the private Pashmerga army, the Kurdish People´s Protection Units (YPG), said Thursday. Matson is a former US Army soldier now "fighting in the Jazaa area," the spokesman added - an area riddled by heavy fighting between Islamic State (ISIS) and Kurdish forces in northeast Syria. The US has not blacklisted the YPG as a terrorist organization, but it does

The CDC has published both an ´Algorithm for Evaluation of the Returned Traveler,´ as well as a ´Checklist for Patients Being Evaluated for Ebola Virus Diseasee (EVD) in the United States.´ Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan arrived in Dallas on September 20 to visit and fell ill a few days later.

And, shockingly, three days after CDC officials visited him in the family´s apartment, 43-year-old Aaron Yah revealed he had not received an order to remain indoors or any advice on how to cope.

Climate change is even deadlier than ebola according to the editor of one of the world´s oldest and most distinguished medical journals. Fiona Godlee, editor in chief of the BMJ (formerly the British Medical Journal; established 1840), claims in her latest editorial: Deaths from Ebola infection, tragic and frightening though they are, will pale into insignificance when compared with the mayhem we can expect for our children and grandchildren if the world does nothing to check its carbon emissions. And action is needed now. Not all BMJ readers will necessarily agree with this assessment, Godlee concedes: When The BMJ started publishing articles on climate

The Prime Minister, in Kabul on an unannounced visit to meet with the country’s new unity government, said Britain had ‘paid a very high price’ for liberating Afghanistan from the Taliban--with 453 British soldiers losing their lives.

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which
