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.

An unreleased version of one of the most celebrated songs in rock, Stairway To Heaven, is to come out later this year after sitting in the vaults for more than 40 years. An alternative take Stairway, one of Led Zeppelin’s most famous compositions, will be released on a new version of the band’s fourth album due out later this year. Guitarist Jimmy Page has sifted through vintage studio recordings to find different versions of each of the eight tracks from the Led Zeppelin IV album--which first came out in 1971--for a companion disc to accompany the reissue, part of a

A 151-year-old house that was the first in the world to be lit using hydroelectricity is once again harnessing the power of water to light the property. Cragside, in Northumberland, was built by Lord Armstrong in 1863 and he used lakes on the estate to generate electricity through a turbine. A 56ft (17-metre) Archimedes screw has now been installed which will use water to produce enough energy to light the 350 bulbs in the house. Geordie actor Robson Green today turned on the screw at the National Trust property and launched the hydropower project. Property curator Andrew Sawyer said: ‘It

More than 100 Palestinians are said to have been killed after Israel intensified its bombardment of Gaza and warned of a long conflict ahead. Gaza´s only power plant caught fire as Israel carried out 60 air strikes, targeting sites associated with Hamas, the Islamist group which controls Gaza. UN staff members are said to be among those killed. An Israeli military spokesman said the strikes signalled a "gradual increase in the pressure" on Hamas. In a televised address on Monday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stressed the need to destroy tunnels dug under the Gaza-Israel border, to prevent militants infiltrating Israel.

Gaza endured over five hours of thunderous bombardment by strike aircraft and artillery on Tuesday morning as Israel retaliated for the deaths of five soldiers. From midnight until 5.30am, the western edge of Gaza City echoed to explosions. At first, the barrage was inflicted by heavy artillery, possibly including the guns of warships anchored off the coast. Later, attack helicopters and jet fighters were also overhead. [Snip] At present, Israeli troops and tanks control a buffer zone extending for two miles into Gaza along the territory’s northern and eastern borders. This area already accounts for 44 percent of Gaza’s total

Israel´s Channel 2 said that Gaza´s electricity supply has been reduced by 90% since the start of the military campaign there.

A strike on a Gaza park killed 10 people Monday, nine of them children, as Israeli and Palestinian authorities traded blame over the attack and fighting in the Gaza war raged on despite a major Muslim holiday. A truce between the sides remained elusive as diplomats sought to end the fighting at the start of the Eid al-Fitr holiday, marking the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. In Israel, meanwhile, the military said a mortar attack on southern Israel caused "deaths and injuries," but did not disclose further details. Israeli media reported that the attack killed at least four people,

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

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. And that word is "competence". Obama was elected in 2008 on a stated promise that he would restore competence to government. He pitched himself as the antidote to "Heck of a job, Brownie" and the Bush years, the person who would always put the most qualified candidate in every job in his Administration. That the basic functioning of government would never be in question. Almost six years on from

GAZA CITY — The conflict in Gaza raged on Sunday, even as both Israel and Hamas offered brief truces and President Obama pressed Israel for an “immediate, unconditional humanitarian ceasefire,” reflecting growing concern over the rising death toll. Israel denied Sunday that it was responsible for one of the most shocking attacks in the 20-day conflict, saying its soldiers were not behind the deaths of 16 Palestinians killed by shelling three days earlier as they sought refuge in a U.N. school near an area of intense fighting. Israel’s military, however, offered no details about what it called a “comprehensive inquiry”
