New fighting breaks out in Gaza
despite Obama’s appeal for a cease-fire

Washington Post, by Sudarsan Raghavan and Ruth Eglash

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”

I don´t think Obama comprehends the growing alliance between Israel, Egypt, Jordan and the Saudi´s. Those Arab nations are Israel´s allies, not Obama. Smashing Hamas sends a message to the brotherhood and to Iran.

Øvomit is so impotent that he made Jimmy Carter look like a wise elder statesman during his incredibly impotent presidency.

He just doesn´t realize that, after so many empty threats in the last 6 years, nobody takes him the least bit serious. Why should they?

Does Obama know that Hamas has been sending rockets into Israel? He doesn´t act like it.

I watched 2 missiles from Israel hit a house after calling the residents and then knocking on the roof. If 16 Palestinians were killed by a single shell hitting a UN school, there were rockets in building. Heck, they might have been the same ones that the UN had discovered in their basement twice already. The rockets with fuel and warheads create a much bigger explosion than an Israeli missile or shell.

Israeli missiles hitting schools does not mean that children were hurt since children may not have been in the vicinity at all.

Obama and the Useless Nations didn´t notice when thousands of rockets were raining on Israel. Now that Israel is striking back and destroying the ratholes that hamas built to invade Israel, they are calling for a cease fire. Hopefully, Netanyahu will cease fire when the last hamas animal has been exterminated.

Obama has no love for Israel because he has a heart for Muslims, and certainly holds no allegience to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He is of the same mindset as the pro-Muslims at the U.N and American progressives. They want Israel weak and under the thumb of Hamas and Hezbollah because they hate anyone who worships the God of the Bible. Persecution and war reigns down on Christians and Jews and the world is silent. It is going to get worse too. Until the world actually acknowledges the brutality and violence that Islam unleashes wherever it is found, war and chaos will flourish. You cannot ignore evil and refuse to deal with it and then expect peace to break out. Those who do only enable violence and brutality. Evil must be defeated and apparently the world does not have the will to do what needs to be done.

Obama and Hamas have the same mindset. A cease-fire is when Israel stops fighting and Hamas continues to rain missiles on Israel until Israel is wiped off the map.

"despite" Obama’s appeal for a cease-fire? Should be, "because" of Obama´s appeal --- which was to Israel only, thus implying that only Israel is responsible. As a result, Hamas has clearly drawn the conclusion that the US in its heart of hearts supports them. Hell, Hamas is actually firing rockets during the Eid! Despicable!

The horrifically suffering parents of the three kidnapped, murdered Jewish teens (one an American, BTW) must be aware that the murders were a MIRACLE.

Had the low-ranking, jihadist barbarian savages not decided to murder the three Jews for the crime of being Jews, the Hamas barbarian savages´ leadership plans to greet the Jewish New Year with a Rosh Hashanah tunnel attack designed to murder and kidnap many, many thousands of Jews (tunnels built with OUR tax dollars) might not have been discovered.

What a world we live in.

Real son of "Pops," President Frank Marshall Davis, Jr, (no relation to Sammy!) and John Kerry are fully aware of this foiled tunnel attack, just as they are aware that scores of moslem children were killed during the tunnel construction which was designed to expedite the murder of countless Jewish children.

Nice moslem parents they have, huh?

And yet, President Davis and Sec. of State Kerry side with our would-be murderers.

Again, what a world we live in.

Isn´t it amazing that all of the fighting and such is all the fault of the Israeli´s? Hamas is never to blame for anything.

What is to stomach churning is the amount of world countries and their leaders, including ours, seem to buy into that crap. I just guess that none of them can plainly see missiles being fired from Gaza into Israel, or perhaps they are just toy missiles being played with by children.

Egypt is supporting Israel because both nations have a common goal to destroy hundreds of tunnels on their side of Gaza.
Both are aware the Obe´s have been aiding Hamas with the materials to construct them.
my question is still --Is operation --the modern children´s crusade hiding the same tunneling under our borders by drug cartels joined with terrorists?
Jordan faced and defeated the same terrorist type Arafat and the battle was carnage.
Saudi is aware of the radicals working to control Medina and Mecca
They are in the same fight for life as Israel.

Are Muslims so dumb that they think Israel will not nuke their enemies if it looked like the other side was winning. At this point in Obama´s inept world, we are closer to Armageddon than any time in history.

Russia will sit back and watch because they hate Muslims as much as the rest of the world does. Egypt and some other Arab countries are already on board, and will defend Israel in the end.

BEIJING — Swelling crowds of pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong on Monday plunged Asia’s normally staid financial hub into a tense standoff with Beijing that strikes directly at China’s expanding political grip in the former British colony. The rapidly escalating protests are aimed at forcing Beijing’s Communist leaders to abandon newly declared powers to weed out any candidates in upcoming Hong Kong elections. Yet many on the streets proclaimed they are fighting for something even bigger: preserving a vision of Hong Kong promised 17 years ago when it reverted to Chinese rule. At the time, Chinese leaders promised a state

U.S. policy leaders, including President Obama, were repeatedly warned for more than a year by the U.S. intelligence community that the Islamic State terror group was gaining significant strength in Syria and was on the verge of seizing territory deep inside Iraq, where the military was struggling to respond. The private assessments, which were confirmed to The Washington Times on Monday, conflict with Mr. Obama’s claim on national television over the weekend that America’s spies had underestimated the rise and capabilities of the Islamic State and had overestimated the Iraqi military’s ability and will to fight the group. Despite heavy

The Supreme Court’s conservatives cleared the way Monday for Ohio to restrict early voting in the state, on the eve of the day it was to start. The court granted the state’s request to stay decisions of lower courts that threw out the state’s new plan, passed by the Republican-led legislature. But the court’s four liberal justices said they would have stayed out of the case and left those decisions in place. Ohio argued that the new plan--reducing from 35 to 28 the number of days voters could cast an early ballot--could not be seen as violating the rights of

More than seven in 10 Americans say the United States will end up using its own combat troops against ISIS militants in Iraq and Syria, despite President Barack Obama’s assertion that U.S. combat troops won’t be on the ground there. This finding comes from a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg poll, which also shows that Americans are divided over the merits of using U.S. combat troops – 45 percent are in favor of using them if military commanders think they’re the best way to defeat the ISIS army, while 37 percent are opposed. President Obama has repeatedly stressed that America

The gunman parked his black Honda directly south of the White House, in the dark of a November night, in a closed lane of Constitution Avenue. He pointed his semiautomatic rifle out of the passenger window, aimed directly at the home of the president of the United States, and pulled the trigger. A bullet smashed a window on the second floor, just steps from the first family’s formal living room. Another lodged in a window frame, and more pinged off the roof, sending bits of wood and concrete to the ground. At least seven bullets struck the upstairs residence of

"Regardless of whether you want to call it a wave," wrote the Rothenberg Political Report´s Nathan Gonzales -- the sort of qualifier that will keep Democratic operatives up at night -- "the fight for the House continues to creep into Democratic territory."

The Obama administration appears to be losing ground in its efforts to cut U.S. emissions of greenhouse gases, according to new government figures that show pollution levels rising again after several years of gradual decline. Data released Friday by the Energy Department show American factories and power plants putting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere during the first six months of 2014 compared with the same period in each of the past two years. The figures confirm a reversal first seen in 2013, when the trend of steadily falling emissions abruptly halted. The higher emissions are primarily a reflection of

Late, hesitant and reluctant as he is, President Obama has begun effecting a workable strategy against the Islamic State. True, he’s been driven there by public opinion. Does anyone imagine that without the broadcast beheadings we’d be doing anything more than pinprick strikes within Iraq? If Obama can remain steady through future fluctuations in public opinion, his strategy might succeed. But success will not be what he’s articulating publicly. The strategy will not destroy the Islamic State. It’s more containment-plus: Expel the Islamic State from Iraq, contain it in Syria. Because you can’t win from the air. In Iraq, we

Ayman al-Zawahiri, one of al-Qaeda’s founders and its leader for the past three years, released a video announcing the formation of a new affiliate in India and lamenting the turmoil being caused by the rival Islamic State in Syria. “Oh mujahideen, unite and reject differences and discord,” he said in a pleading tone that seemed to underscore the declining relevance of al-Qaeda’s core, the Pakistan-based group that orchestrated the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

The U.S. had expected the Iraqi army to do more against extremists, president says in acknowledgment of intelligence shortcomings. President Obama acknowledged that the U.S. underestimated the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also called ISIL) and overestimated the ability of the Iraqi military to fend off the militant group in an interview that will air Sunday on 60 Minutes. The president was asked by 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft about comments from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who has said the U.S. not only underestimated ISIS, it also overestimated the ability and will of the

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)
