Israeli naval commandos fight Hamas
gunmen in beach front firefight

Telegraph [UK], by Robert Tait

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/13/2014 5:54:54 PM

Israeli naval commandos fought Hamas gunmen in a dramatic beach front firefight on Sunday after Israel attempted the first boots-on-the ground operation of its ongoing offensive in Gaza. [Snip] The Israeli military said the mission had achieved its goal of destroying rocket launching sites near the beach. The amphibious landing came after as Israeli reservists massed along the Gaza land frontier with tanks and artillery fire for a possible ground invasion following six days of aerial bombardment. Sa´ad Dowla, a caretaker at the al-Mathaf Hotel, less than 100 yards from the scene of the Sunday´s firefight said he heard Palestinian shooting

Comments:
Good report from a Telegraph reporter in Gaza. Note that the "17 members of one family" we keep reading about turn out to be the extended family of the Hamas police chief whose house was blown up. Also note that at close of play Sunday, Hamas had bombarded Israel with 830 rockets and no Israeli casualties.

God has again and again, taken care of Israel from the beginning of time. And each time they´ve been attacked and OUTNUMBERED..God gave them victory except when God was chastising them or punishing them. The point is, many different cultures tried to wipe them out ...but where are they today? Where are the Hittites? Where are the Romans? Where are the Babylonians? The point is, God does defend Israel. "I will bless those who bless THEE (Israel) and I will curse those who curse thee." (Israel). Gen. 12:31.

Arabs in general and Islamist specifically Suck, but not good!

There is absolutely nothing that can be done to placate the Arab/Islamist World hence they must be brutally beaten back into the dark ages where they will be happy and content with their social and sexual ´preversions´ and then our Western Civilizations can get on with our productive and somewhat rewarding lives!

Today´s problems between these Arab Barstids and the Civilized Western World has been stimulated and then allowed to escalate by that Marxist/Commie/Fascist POS in the WH!

Each Arab country now in turmoil is a direct result of Obama´s and Hitlery´s and Jon Efin Kerry´s idiotic stupidity and self centered importance!

President Barack Obama is preparing to ask Congress to pay for a multibillion-dollar plan to expand the military campaign against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) militants, an unnamed administration official told the Wall Street Journal / Live Mint website. While the proposal hasn’t been made final and the total amount is still being calculated, it will likely be “in the billions of dollars,” reports the site, as Pentagon officials develop options for the president. Obama is scheduled to deliver a televised address to the nation at 9 p.m. Washington time on Wednesday to lay out his strategy to defeat the

US Secretary of State John Kerry has met the new Iraqi PM at the start of a Middle East tour to build support for action against Islamic State (IS). Haidar al-Abadi formed a unity government less than 48 hours ago. An inclusive government was a condition for greater US and Nato support in the fight against IS militants who have taken over large parts of the country. [Snip] He said on Tuesday that he had authority to widen military action against IS without the approval of Congress, but said he would still ask lawmakers to endorse the arming of Syrian opposition forces.

WASHINGTON--US President Barack Obama will tell the American people on Wednesday night that he plans to order strikes against Islamic State forces in both Syria and Iraq until the group is ultimately destroyed. The president´s plan includes additional support for opposition militias in Syria vetted by the United States, which will serve as a ground force complementing America´s air campaign. [Snip] The "comprehensive strategy," as described by one White House official, will involve "US military action and support for the forces combating ISIL [Islamic State] on the ground–both the opposition in Syria and a new, inclusive Iraqi government."

Israel on Wednesday hailed US efforts to form an alliance to fight jihadists in Syria and Iraq but raised concerns of a rapprochement between Washington and Israel´s arch-foe Iran. [Snip] His remarks came as US Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Baghdad on an unannounced visit at the start of a Middle East tour aimed at building a regional coalition to combat the extremist Sunni militants who have taken over swathes of territory either side of the Syria-Iraq border. Liberman´s comments follow calls yesterday by Defense Minister Moshe Ya´alon for greater cooperation between global intelligence agencies to defeat IS.

Tonight, exactly one year after Barack Obama strode to a microphone in the East Room of the White House to make a prime-time televised address to the nation on "what to do about Syria", the US president is preparing once again to do…just that. Even by the tortured standards of Mr Obama, the 2013 address was a truly dismal affair in which the President could be heard arguing with himself over his own non-response to the Assad regime´s use of chemical weapons. [Snip] So a year on, where has that "diplomatic path" taken us? For a start, the killing in

New polling numbers paint a dismal picture of the Obama presidency as the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) gains influence in the Middle East and threatens to mount an attack on the U.S. homeland. Just 42 percent of Americans now see the president as a ´strong leader,´ according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll released Tuesday--despite bullish talk from the White House that Obama will be able to carry out his strategy against ISIS without asking Congress. [Snip] And 70 percent think ISIS is already positioned inside the United States with the resources and ability to mount an

Tomorrow, President Obama will issue a keynote address to layout his strategy for defeating Isil. Here’s my take on what he should say: "Good evening. Tonight, I want to talk to you about the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, also known as Isil, Isis, and the Islamic State. In recent months, in the form of crucified civilians, in the rubble of destroyed churches and mosques, and in the specter of roving death squads, the world has witnessed the face of Isil. Hijackers of Islam, these terrorists claim to serve noble justice. Nothing could be further from

Forget Scottish nationalism. This isn´t about historic national identity anymore (if it ever was): it´s about historic Labour ideology. [Snip] It will not require separate statehood to "protect" the Scottish health system from being denationalised by Whitehall, because Whitehall has no such power. The "Save Our NHS" slogan has nothing to do with Scottish independence. It is a trade union mantra. What the "Yes" project is really about now is creating Public Sector Union Heaven north of the border: a socialist utopian fantasy which has not been broached as an electoral possibility since the Eighties when Labour boroughs declared themselves

The Ministry of Defense together with the US Missile Defense Agency test fired an Arrow 2 interceptor in central Israel on Tuesday morning. The trial was aimed at examining the capabilities of the latest version of the air defense system against future threats. The test was overseen by officials from the HOMA administration--a part of the Defense Ministry´s Administration for the Development of Weapons and Technological Infrastructure, and Israel Aerospace Industries, which is the project´s prime contractor. "An Arrow 2 interceptor was fired according to plan, and carried out planned fight stages," the Ministry of Defense said. "The large amounts

US-based NGO Human Rights Watch (HRW) on Tuesday accused Israel of "illegally" sending almost 7,000 illegal immigrants back to their home countries in Africa. [Snip] HRW, whose head Kenneth Roth directly condoned Hamas war crimes last month, accused Israeli authorities of having "denied them access to fair and efficient asylum procedures, and used the resulting insecure legal status as a pretext to unlawfully detain or threaten to detain them indefinitely, coercing thousands into leaving." The accusations come despite the fact that Yochi Genison, the most senior official at the State Attorney´s office tasked with immigration, clarified in June that the

Syrian rebels strengthened their hold of the Syrian side of the Golan Heights on Tuesday morning, conquering the mountain Al-Mal in the Quneitra region where they have recently been capturing control from Syrian President Bashar Assad´s forces. In conquering the strategic point on Tuesday, rebel forces killed roughly ten Syrian soldiers according to Arab news sources cited by Walla!, with some reports assessing that all of Assad´s forces in the area were killed in the clash. The victory gives the rebels full control over the mountain located roughly ten kilometers (just over six miles) from the border with Israel.

Less than 48 hours ahead of a planned address to the nation on how the U.S. plans to combat Islamic State terrorists operating in Iraq and Syria, President Obama dined at the White House Monday with a slate of foreign policy experts.

Half of all bird species in North America — including the bald eagle — are at risk of severe population decline by 2080 if the swift pace of global warming continues, the National Audubon Society concluded in a study released Monday. "The scale of the disruption we´re projecting is a real punch in the gut," said Gary Langham, chief Audubon scientist. (Snip) By 2080, the bald eagle, the national symbol of the United States, could see its habitat decrease by 75%, the report says. All of the habitat of the common loon, the state bird of Minnesota, could disappear in the lower 48

This morning, New York Times reporter Kim Severson spiced up her obituary for Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy by tagging him "a symbol of intolerance" who presided over a "restaurant chain [seen by some] as a symbol of hate." Here´s the relevant excerpt (emphasis mine): When he introduced himself, S. Truett Cathy often played down his job. “I cook chicken for a living,” he would say. And on the surface, that was true. Mr. Cathy, who died on Monday at 93, was by all appearances a humble Christian man from Georgia with little education who sold a simple sandwich: a

Megyn Kelly tonight brought viewers the first part of her contentious showdown with Professor Ward Churchill, best known for his controversial comments about the “little Eichmanns” who were in the World Trade Center when the planes hit on September 11th. Churchill came under intense scrutiny and was fired by the University of Colorado at Boulder. What concerned Kelly most in the first part of the interview was that “little Eichmanns” comment, the argument being that Eichmann played a role in horrible atrocities even though he didn’t directly carry out the Final Solution, which he views as similar to the financial

Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under
