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

Washington Post, by Sudarsan Raghavan and Ruth Eglash

Posted By:Dreadnought, 7/27/2014 10:48:21 PM

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.

Obama administration attempts
to quell fears about Ebola
Washington Times, by Tom Howell Jr.    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 10/3/2014 11:32:42 PM     Post Reply
The Obama administration sought Friday to tamp down fears of an Ebola outbreak within the U.S., making the case that America’s infrastructure and health care systems set it apart from the horrific scenes coming out of West Africa, even as a confirmed case in Dallas and recent scares in the nation’s capital prompt fears of a domestic problem. “The United States is prepared to deal with the crisis,” Lisa Monaco, homeland security adviser to President Obama, told reporters at a White House briefing on the response to the deadly virus. At the same time, officials said they understood the alarm

The U.S. economy is back on solid ground six years after the Great Recession, new data showed Friday, but President Obama and other Democrats are struggling to convince voters ahead of the midterm elections that they deserve the credit for the rebound. The government reported that the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent in September, the lowest level since the dark days of the 2008 financial crisis. Job growth surged to 248,000 in what was the final snapshot of the nation’s labor market before voters head to the polls in November. Obama on Friday seized on the numbers, pleading with

A Washington-area hospital announced Friday that it had admitted a patient with symptoms and a travel history associated with Ebola. The case has not been confirmed, but the number of similar incidents around the country and a confirmed Ebola patient in Dallas have spurred concerns about whether U.S. hospitals are as prepared to deal with the virus as federal officials insist they are. Since July, hospitals around the country have reported more than 100 cases involving Ebola-like symptoms to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, officials there said. Only one patient so far — Thomas Duncan in Dallas

MADISON, Wis. — Gov. Scott Walker is casting himself as a turnaround artist, seeking re-election with a pitch to voters that he revamped the state’s spending and business climate in just four years. For a governor with presidential aspirations, it’s a case he’s likely preparing for a national audience as well — but first he’ll have to get through a tighter-than-expected re-election race against Democrat Mary Burke, a former state secretary of commerce. As if that wasn’t enough, analysts say that his race could also say a lot about the political strength of labor unions, given that they’ve made defeating

The real reason winning the Senate matters

You can win midterm elections without a positive agenda. You can’t win presidential elections that way. It is therefore vitally important for Republicans to win the Senate in 2014. Here’s why. In midterms, it’s all right to be the party of no. The 2010 election, for example, was a referendum on the liberal overreach of the first two Obama years. Result? A Democratic “shellacking,” said President Obama. The massive stimulus, (the failed) cap-and-trade and Obamacare created a major backlash that cost Obama the House and, with it, the rest of his ideological agenda. It’s been blocked ever since. That’s the

The whistleblowers, who have spoken out about various problems and wrongdoing at the law enforcement agency, said they recently have been served with Loss of Effectiveness orders, warning that their performance is suffering and that they could soon be fired. “These whistleblowers never have the opportunity to make their case,” said Sen.

As the Ebola virus spread quickly across parts of Africa in March, U.S. officials confronted a logistical nightmare: a complete lack of infrastructure in affected regions, no evacuation plans and air charter services that were unable or unwilling to fly into the region to transport seriously ill patients. And it turns out there’s only one jet in the world — operated by a small private plane charter company in Georgia — with a special transport tube that allows medical personnel to treat Ebola patients while in flight. The Atlanta-based Centers for Disease and Prevention helped develop the “air transport bio-containment

Despite national guidelines for evaluating potential Ebola cases and worldwide awareness of an epidemic that has killed thousands in West Africa, a man who later tested positive for the disease was released from a Dallas hospital even though he said he had traveled to Texas from Liberia. The man returned two days later and was placed in isolation before he became the first person ever diagnosed with Ebola in the United States. But as a result of this lapse, Thomas Duncan was able to leave the hospital and interact with more people while experiencing symptoms, which is when the virus

The confirmation Tuesday of the first Ebola case on U.S. soil emerges against a backdrop of increasing concern in America’s medical community that preparedness for a pandemic has stagnated or slipped in recent years because of tough economic times and increasing malaise since the 2001 anthrax threat. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, America’s premier disease fighter, offered the air of confidence in declaring that the first Ebola patient in Dallas was carefully contained. But earlier this year, it sounded less optimistic about the U.S. health system’s ability to fight a pandemic should a major disease outbreak occur.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which
