Inside a Gaza Hospital
Under Israeli Rocket Fire

ABC News, by Megan Keneally

Original Article

Posted By:SoCalGal, 7/17/2014 12:34:30 PM

An American activist has moved into a Gaza City rehabilitation hospital in the hopes of deterring an Israeli military strike on the facility that has been emptied except for 17 rehab patients who are too disabled to leave and the staff to take care of them. Joe Catron, 33, of Virginia, said el-Wafa Hospital in Gaza City has already been hit once with a missile and he said that Israeli threats to strike again amount to "psychological warfare." Catron is one of eight foreigners who hope to act as human shields for the hospital. He described the band of foreigners

Comments:
And what do these "activists" think about the neverending Hamas rocket firings that have been hitting civilians in Israel?

The lefty sob sisters in the LSM will be all over this story. Count on it.

If the hospital is a target, it is only because Hamas is either using it as a missile launch site or is storing rockets and arms there. Hamas is making the patients be their "human shields."
Tough, Joe Catron, I hope the IDF takes you and the hospital out. If you want to make yourself a human shield, prepare to meet your 72 virgins.

I think it would be a great idea if all America´s activists for all the wrong causes would move to Gaza and dare Israel to fire on them.

I think it was Benjamin Netanyahu who said we use missiles to protect our people but Hamas uses people to protect it´s missiles. This writer and any others who deliberately ignore this reality have no credibility.

OP has it right: Why don´t these "human shields" go to Tel Aviv and tell Hamas not to shoot at them?

Because Hamas don´t care, baby. And they know it.

Why would a hospital need a human shield? Hospitals are not targets by people who obey they international laws governing warfare, as the the Israelis do.

Putting a big Red Cross (yeah, really!) on it works better than having some idiot running around saying he’s a shield.

But make your hospital part of the war by making it a firing position, then all bets are off, and Shield Boy isn´t going to change anything.

Will he also report from inside the UN-run Gaza school in which missiles were hidden?!! Doesn´t he know Israel´s enemies routinely hade behind children and will use ANYONE to conceal & shield their machinery of war?!!

Israel is a tiny country which respects basic human Rights and is now under fire and having to defend itself from the surrounding barbarians´ ruthless & continuing attacks.

Well, they would not be under Israeli rocket fire if they had not first attacked Israel.

Or so it seems to me, but then maybe I´m just a right-wing knuckle dragger who sees everything in black and white. I wish I could sit at the feet of John Effin´ Kerry, who might open my horizons and explain the subtle nuances.

If you’re waiting for President Obama to pull a Walgreen (WAG) on Burger King (BKW), you’re probably one pickle short of a whopper. Because it ain’t happening. By now you’ve heard that Burger King has just scooped up Canadian coffee-and-doughnut giant Tim Hortons in a roughly $11 billion deal, and will move its headquarters there. BK’s CEO insists the deal won’t save much on taxes – the company presently pays an adjusted tax rate of about 27%, which is about the prevailing tax rate in Canada. Others dispute that math, since Canada provides many more tax incentives and loopholes that

Warren Buffett will pay $3B for
Burger King to buy Tim Hortons —

President Obama’s favorite billionaire has thrown him under the Burger King bus. Warren Buffett stuck one of his big Midas thumbs in Obama’s eye Tuesday by agreeing to pony-up $3 billion so the hamburger chain can buy a Canadian doughnut outfit — and avoid paying millions in U.S. corporate taxes by moving part of its headquarters to Ontario. Buffett made the move just a month after Obama denounced “inversion” tactics like this as an “unpatriotic tax loophole” and ordered regulatory changes to curb them. The White House declined to discuss this flame-broiled whopper of an embarrassment Tuesday.

A ´supercavitating´ submarine creates a bubble of air that encompasses the whole vehicle by ejecting gas through the nose with enough force that it forms water vapor. This greatly reduces drag and allows it to travel at high speeds not possible by standard submarines. Photo: The Washington Post In the annals of vehicular locomotion, the submarine is the equivalent of the Walkman. It dazzled the masses when it hit, flexing nuclear-tipped missiles that completed the "nuclear triad" of deterrence. But other technologies soon surpassed it in terms of speed and agility. Now, years later, the submarine may be making a

On NBC’s Meet the Press, guest Gwen Ifill of PBS called the unrest and violence that erupted in Ferguson, Mo., the beginning of a “new civil-rights movement.” “There’s a new civil-rights movement which has sprung up,” Ifill said. “These young people in the streets, these young people who created a social-media movement around Michael Brown, they’re not saying pass a law, they’re saying enforce the current ones.” But some people have called for new laws, and later in the program, Reverend Al Sharpton said, “Our demonstrations must lead to legislation.” Sharpton went on to say that, “We must turn this moment into

The Israel Air Force struck a 13-story building in Gaza City on Saturday evening that housed an enormous Hamas command center, IDF sources said, adding that only combatants were inside at the time. Gazan health officials said 17 people were wounded in the attack. Reuters cited local residents as saying that the building housed 44 families. Shortly after 8 p.m., rocket-warning sirens went off in cities across the Tel Aviv area, from Rishon Lezion to Bnei Brak and Givatayim. Blasts from Iron Dome interceptions could be heard in the air over Tel Aviv, though the sirens did not sound in the city. There

The United Nations warned Saturday that a northeast Iraq town under siege by Islamic State militants since June faces risk of a "massacre," if urgent action is not taken to rescue residents. Militants have surrounded the small Shia Turkmen community of Amerli, roughly 110 miles north of Baghdad, drawing comparisons to Islamic State´s siege of Mount Sinjar, where thousands of Yazidi were trapped for weeks before U.S. air strikes drove the militants away and allowed the innocent civilians to escape the bloodthirsty jihadists. But this time, those trapped are Shia Muslims, who are reviled by the mostly Sunni Islamic State fighters.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.— Former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist continued his political comeback Tuesday as Democratic voters selected him as their nominee to challenge Republican Gov. Rick Scott in Florida, one of four states where voters were choosing candidates for statewide office. Crist easily defeated former state Sen. Nan Rich, while Scott coasted in his own primary toward a general election matching the state’s last two Republican governors. Both have struggled with sagging approval ratings and run-ins with conservatives. “It’s a wonderful night,” Crist declared after accepting a concession call from Rich.

The FAA has issued a no-fly warning that extends for most of Friday and all day Saturday through Sunday, grounding seaplanes to East Hampton, Montauk, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. On Friday, Obama will be feted at the home of one of his top bundlers, 32 Advisors’ Robert Wolf, in the aptly-named Purchase, NY, with 250 high-rollers paying up to $32,000 each to bend Obama’s ear.
