Barrage of Hamas rockets intercepted over
central Israel; Explosions heard in Tel Aviv

Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Yaakov Lappin

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/10/2014 7:18:16 AM

On Day 3 of Operation Protective Edge, barrage of rockets from Gaza fired at cities across Israel; Iron Dome intercepts several rockets above Tel Aviv; Dimona, home of nuclear reactor, targeted for second straight day. Code Red sirens sounded in several communities throughout Israel on Thursday afternoon as Israel´s anti-rocket system successfully intercepted a barrage of Hamas-fired projectiles over the Shfela region. Audible explosions were also heard in the Tel Aviv area , although no Code Red siren proceeded the explosions. Sirens sounded in areas of central Israel surrounding Tel Aviv, such as Lod, Ramle, and the Shfela, which absorbed

i am not an expert on this, but i´m sure some here at Lcom are..
on tv i see first generation rockets being launched into Israel..
they are being shot from pickup trucks..
they undoubtedly have tens of THOUSANDS of these.. they can probably get these from Russia for FREE..
Israel´s anti-rocket system is designed to stop more sophisticated and FEWER rockets, from what i can understand.. Reagan´s idea was to stop devastating larger, nuclear missiles, not WWII era rockets on a MASSIVE scale..
to cut to the chase..
Israel probably is spending one MILLION dollars to stop each one THOUSAND dollar missile coming in..
i think they are gonna run out of these high tech defensive missile long before the terrorists run out of pickup trucks with fifty missiles on each one..
anyone have a better read on this?

It´s great to see Israel´s Iron Dome defense system working. It´s horrific to know that Hamas is now targeting Tel Aviv. At least we know that Israel can defend herself.

But what about the US? Didn´t Obama dismantle our missile Defense shield or did I dream that? What would happen to us if we were attacked, a more likely prospect every day Obama is in office.

Kerry: US investment can
fight extremism in Africa
BBC News [UK], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 8/6/2014 2:09:29 AM     Post Reply
US investment in Africa is fighting extremism there, US Secretary of State John Kerry has told the BBC. In an interview with BBC´s HARDtalk, Mr Kerry said stability from business projects was countering extremist ideologies and militant movements. He spoke as more than 40 African heads of state gathered in Washington at the first US-Africa Leaders´ Summit. Earlier on Tuesday, US companies pledged to invest $14bn (£8.3bn) in the continent. Mr Kerry told the BBC´s Zeinab Badawi that US investment in Africa was developing infrastructure, bringing wealth, and improving the standard of living of many Africans.

US Secretary of State John Kerry has urged Israel and the Palestinians to take advantage of the Gaza truce to move towards broader negotiations. Mr Kerry told the BBC the situation could concentrate minds on the need to negotiate a "two-state solution". A 72-hour humanitarian truce is holding in Gaza, halting a four-week conflict that has claimed more than 1,900 lives. Israel and the Palestinians have sent delegations to Cairo to discuss the possibility of a longer-term truce.

After Edward Snowden, US government

The US government fears that the US intelligence agencies have a second mole who is feeding top secret information to journalists, it has been reported. The existence of a second high-level leaker--separate from the former defence contractor Edward Snowden--has been mooted in intelligence and journalistic circles for some weeks, but was confirmed by US officials, according to a report by CNN. [Snip] The documents, which were not sourced to the Snowden files, showed that the number of people on the US “no fly” had increased more than ten-fold during Barack Obama’s tenure in the White House, potentially deepening popular concerns

Netanyahu and Kerry´s Phone

A phone call between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was mysteriously disconnected on Sunday, Channel 2 News reports. According to the report, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki admitted to reporters on Tuesday that the call was disconnected, though she said it was due to a “communications issue”. Psaki did, however, say that the two have not spoken since the phone call was cut off. “Their phone call was cut off,” she said, adding when asked whether she thinks Netanyahu hung up on Kerry, “Sometimes calls get cut off...it was a brief call, is what

Saaeda Warsi--aka Baroness Warsi; aka Baroness Token--has announced her resignation from the Cabinet in a style entirely becoming her class, intelligence and sophistication: on Twitter. [Snip] Her departure will no doubt come as an enormous relief to the more traditional Conservatives in her party, many of whom felt that Warsi´s appointment to a Cabinet post--even one as meaningless as "Minister for Faith and Communities" had less to do with her brilliance, integrity and raw talent than it did to Cameron´s desperation to get his first Asian Muslim female on the books. One of them once described Baroness Token to me

´Pay £200 to see the doctor so you

Robert Winston claims patients should

Patients should be charged £200 to see their GP so they ´learn to appreciate the NHS´, fertility expert Robert Winston has said. It comes after calls for patients to pay a £10-a-month fee to use health services, and also be charged £20 for every night they stay in hospital. But Labour peer Lord Winston said the actual value of a hospital was much greater--and the charge would have to be much higher to make it more ´realistic´ for those who do not appreciate the cost. He told the Sun: ´The actual value of a hospital appointment is about £200.

Palestinian Arab sources said Tuesday that Gaza residents attacked Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri Saturday evening, near the Shifa Hospital. Abu Zuhri had arrived at the hospital for an interview with a news outlet. The residents blamed Hamas for the death of family members and for destruction of their homes. Armed Hamas terrorists from the Izzedine al-Kassam Brigades extricated Abu Zuri and arrested the angry residents. Arabic website vetogate.com said that reporters in Gaza are well aware of the incident but are afraid to report it, because Hamas´s security agency could go after them if they do.

The Israeli military says all its ground troops will have pulled out of the Gaza Strip by the start of the ceasefire agreed to by both sides in the bloody conflict. Lt. Col. Peter Lerner says the withdrawal will be completed by 8am local time (0500 GMT) on Tuesday. Lerner says the withdrawal is going forward after Israel completed the destruction of 32 cross-border tunnels meant to allow Islamic militants to carry out attacks against Israel. The ceasefire is meant to end nearly four weeks of fighting between Israel and Hamas, which has claimed 1,900 Palestinian lives – most of them civilians. The

IDF Soldier Selflessly Pursued
Terrorists in Gaza Tunnel

The findings that enabled the IDF’s Chief Rabbinate to declare the death of Lt. Hadar Goldin were provided by an IDF commander who fearlessly and selflessly pursued the terrorists who abducted Goldin´s body. First Lieutenant Eitan, the son of olim (immigrants) from New York, realized following Friday morning’s incident that the Hamas terrorists who attacked Goldin and two other soldiers had taken off with Goldin’s body. Eitan then proceeded to pursue the terrorists through one of Hamas’s terror tunnels, doing so despite the fact that it was against orders and despite the huge risk involved in running through a tunnel

But I didn´t mean the Israelis--who, I imagine, were the people I was expected to blame.

The bombing of a UN school in Rafah by Israeli forces may not have actually happened, according to an analysis of footage of the aftermath by blogger Thomas Wictor. According to many press reports, Rafah Preparatory ‘A’ Boys School was hit by Israeli fire, killing 10 people, when Israel targeted three militants from the Islamic Jihad group who were riding past on motorcycles. [Snip] Wictor notes that there are several inconsistencies in the footage. The two dead men are first of all photographed outside the school, yet in subsequent images are shown inside school grounds, suggesting their bodies have been

ATLANTA — In the early 2000s, a young researcher at the Centers for Disease Control named Greg Millett set out to solve an epidemiological mystery. Nobody could explain why black Americans, particularly black gay men, had such high rates of HIV infection compared to the rest of the population. How were they putting themselves in so much danger? What were they doing differently from everyone else? Millett began with a survey of the published research, but that only seemed to raise more questions. Study after study seemed to arrive at the same conclusion: Black gay men take fewer risks in the

President Obama returned from his full-time job as the Democratic Party’s fundraiser-in-chief to host today’s U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit. As he winged his way back to Washington from Kansas City aboard Air Force One, the president sat for an interview with editors of The Economist. The interview was pure Barack Obama, and it revealed him for what he is — an intellectually agile partisan fantasist. According to Mr. Obama, there really haven’t been that many problems, but those we may be experiencing are the fault not of his policies or leadership, but of the fact that he continues to have to contend

Obamacare plans have shrunk payments to physicians so much that some doctors say they won’t be able to afford to accept Obamacare coverage, NPR reports. Many of the eight million sign-ups in Obamacare exchanges nationwide already face more limited choices for physicians and hospitals than those in the private insurance market. But with low physician reimbursement rates, the problem could get even worse. For a typical quick patient visit, Dr. Doug Gerard, a Connecticut internist, told NPR a private insurer would pay $100 while Medicare would pay around $80. But Obamacare plans are more likely to pay closer to $80, which Gerard

I assure you that this list is far less than exhaustive: 1. Hummus. I hate hummus. 2. Design modifications to the Twin Towers. 3. Animal husbandry (literally)

Pelosi lashed out at Rep. Tom Marino, R-Pa., after he accused Democrats of neglecting the immigration issue when they controlled the White House and Congress in 2009 and 2010.

Six weeks after the primary runoff election, Mississippi State Sen. Chris McDaniel is launching his formal legal challenge of the election results, saying the evidence is so conclusive that he will be calling for courts to recognize him as the true victor of the race rather than calling for a new election. “Chris McDaniel clearly, clearly won the Republican vote in the runoff,” McDaniel attorney Mitch Tyner said at a Monday press conference. “I say that very assuredly because that’s what the mathematics show. It’s not what I’m arguing. After the election, we did some post-election polling.

Former president Jimmy Carter called on the West to recognize the U.S.-designated terrorist group Hamas as a legitimate "political actor" that represents the bulk of the Palestinian population. Carter made the comments in an article he co-wrote with former Irish president Mary Robinson in a new issue of Foreign Policy magazine. It was published as a cease-fire took hold Tuesday after four weeks of fighting between Israel and Hamas, which governs Gaza. In a sharply worded rebuke to Israel, Carter and Robinson said, "There is no humane or legal justification for the way the Israeli Defense Forces are conducting this war."
