A Tunnel Too Far
American Thinker, by Joel Levine

Posted By:magnante, 7/28/2014 8:11:16 AM

War is either the arm of political strategy or an existential moment. (snip)The IDF is sent into battle with a reminder that it is sword of Israel. It is an agent less of the State than of the people. At some point, the harsh reality of its history is finally accepted. “Death to the Jews” fills the air in many capitals, East and West. Until this moment, this was taken as the background noise. But “Death to the Jews” is now its own reality. Israel is perilously close to the IDF code: Israel cannot afford to lose one war and

Israelies get criticised for killing Hamas fighters, by all the Muslim states, by their lap dogs in the UN and unfortunately by many liberals in the US. Basically these idiots are saying, "No fair, you fired back first". Its a case of damned if you do and damned if you don´t. Well, if they´re going to be called war mongers no matter what they do, they might as well go all out. We all know that Israel has "the bomb". If I were in charge of the Israelie Armed forces and my country was about to be obliterated in an all out attack, I would take out Meca, Medina, Riad, Tehran and what ever serves as the capital of Syria these days. "Mutually Assured Destruction". It worked for fifty years with the Russians and the US.

A good quarterback knows to ignore the crowd and play football. Israel should ignore the wussified world and defend itself.

Nominate for must read. The Israelis must survive. In the hell that is about to break out, we will need an ally who will stand with the People of the US against the growing forces of evil. I do not say with stand with our President because I fear he may be one of the forces of evil. We must withstand him by taking away Harry Reid´s gavel this Nov. Then we can start rolling up some of the evil Barack, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid have done.

What is interesting is that the Black community, as a whole, claims they are the minority ´victims´, but Worldwide, Jews are persecuted, WITHOUT claiming victimhood or minority status. When they fight back, they are vilified; and guaranteed, they WILL fight back. Right now, Israel is holding back their major weaponry, and are dying because of that action, but at some point, they may unleash all they have and their enemies will suffer mightily. The U>S> could
get involved and end all this fighting but Obama is pro-Muslim and has no interest in helping our ally, in my opinion.

If I were an Israeli, I would be screaming for the IDF to kill about 99.9% of those claiming to be Palestinians, then force the remainder to foreswear ever trying to kill even one Jew.

I would not negotiate with anyone who had "eliminate the Jews" in their founding documents.
How can one expect compliance when "my death" is a prerequisite of their being a political entity?

If we should be attacked by terrorists who come across our unprotected, undefended southern border, and should Americans die in any such attack, we would do well to understand for what those lives were lost. They would have been spent for the ability of illegal aliens to cast illegal votes for politicians doing illegal things. While both parties are to some degree to blame for the porousness of our southern border, the party that has the singular ability to solve the problem via the levers of government, the Democrats, is ensuring that the problem becomes so pervasive and vast that

It´s the latest instance of black-on-white mob violence sweeping America -- and a YouTube clip of the attack has gone viral. It shows a 17-year-old boy in Memphis, Tennessee, getting punched, knocked to the ground, and kicked in the head while lying helpless. Jubilant shouts and laughter from the black mob can be heard in the background.

You have to wonder, incidentally, if there would have been a scandal if Levenson had stated that the NBA needed to draw

Barack Obama stands apart from other modern American Presidents in many ways. (snip)the widespread view that he is the coolest President ever. This supernal coolness is not new. In his autobiography, Dreams From My Father, the President wrote that in his teenage years “I tried my best to be cool at all times” (p. 82). However, leaving aside the contradiction inherent in trying to be cool, it is possible that Barack Obama’s teenage experiences may have left him psychologically, and perhaps even neurologically, incapable of performing fundamental tasks of his current position. Much of the appeal of coolness is its

Progressives exploiting low wage workers

Left wingers are willing to sacrifice the actual interests of the poor in service to their aspirations of political power. A perennial dream of the American progressives is to organize fast food workers into a union, a move that would be an absolute disaster for the intended beneficiaries. Today, a purported 150 cities will see fast food strikes (snip)Oddly enough for people supposedly unable to exist on the wages they receive, there was a purported fast food convention last July that supposedly drew 1,300 people to complain about their low wages.

Some have called it the worst summer ever. This may or may not include the summer when an asteroid crashed near the Yucatan peninsula, almost extinguishing life on earth. But, with Labor Day past and the kids going back to school, it´s time to reflect on the summer of 2014. Terrorists announced a new caliphate in Syria and Iran, as Vlad the Shirtless warned of possible nuclear exchanges in Europe. All-out war erupted between Israel and Hamas, and the entire Middle East seemed to fall apart faster than an Obamacare promise. Rioting broke out in the Midwest. (For a while it was

Obama contradicts himself on ISIS

Where in the world is Obama’s strategy for dealing with ISIS? Apparently not in Tallinn, Estonia, where the president of the United States contradicted himself this morning on his search for his strategy in dealing with ISIS. First, he said: “The bottom line is this: our objective is clear. That is to degrade and destroy ISIL" (snip)But then, later in the course of his somewhat rambling (that’s a charitable adjective) remarks, he said: "We know that if we are joined by the international community, we can continue to shrink ISIL´s sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities to the point

Schadenfreude, taking pleasure in others’ suffering, is a nasty emotion, one I take no pride in confessing as I watch Democrats attempting to dodge responsibility for foisting Barack Obama upon us. Nevertheless, it is certainly satisfying to see Dems scurry away from Obama as he visits their states. (snip)But as fate would have it, 8 of the 13 seriously contested Senate seats are in states with relatively few black voters, as Michael Barone explains: It´s apparent that even the most vigorous black turnout effort in the eight states with low black percentages is not going to make much difference.

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question. Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit. Some blacks are racist, pure and simple. I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they

In an interview with Penny Lee, Democratic Strategist and former advisor to Harry Reid (yeah, that kinda says it all), Megyn Kelly could not refrain from expressing exasperation with her guest. And who could blame her? Kelly started out asking Lee about Obama’s decision to attend a Democratic fundraiser while we’re weighing whether to bomb Syria. (video embedded) Before Lee uttered a word, she spoke volumes with what I now consider to be a predictable progressive response to serious matters: the smile/laugh/smirk. This facial expression conveys condescension and arrogance, as if to suggest that what was said or asked is foolish,

Let’s cut President Obama some slack. Golf is a challenging game, and he has been focused like a laser (as Bill Clinton used to say) on improving his game on Martha’s Vineyard, and there’s only so much a guy can do. Coming up with a strategy for dealing with guys who are the junior varsity can wait – and after all there are three fundraisers and a wedding beckoning this holiday weekend, so what’s the hurry? Unfortunately for any residual desire of President Obama’s desire to be seen as a serous leader, the above sarcastic apologia fits his pattern of behavior

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. Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Secretary of State John Kerry were joined by some of Washington’s most established foreign policy hands, including Clinton National Security Adviser Sandy Berger and Zbigniew Brzezinski, who held the same position during the Carter administration. Former Obama national security adviser Tom Donilon was also at the dinner, as was former Undersecretary for Defense Policy

Memphis Police Department director Toney Armstrong said he’s had lots of calls asking how the investigation would proceed but said there is “not sufficient enough evidence to investigate this as a hate crime.” “I know this has a lot of racial undertones,” Armstrong said during a news conference Monday at Memphis City Hall. “I’ve gotten a lot of calls and I know (Memphis Mayor A C Wharton) has as well.

Joan Rivers "banned" First Lady Michelle Obama, pop star Adele and talk show host Chelsea Handler from attending her funeral just weeks before her sudden death. The comedienne sent Hollywood into mourning when she died Thursday, days after suffering a cardiac arrest during a routine throat procedure. Her funeral was held in her New York on Sunday and attracted stars including Hugh Jackman, Whoopi Goldberg, Kelly Osbourne and Sarah Jessica Parker, and it has now emerged Rivers had previously drawn up a wish-list of famous faces who should stay away.

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.

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

A part of it is, you know, how are you, how, how are you, well, it´s not something that—that always comes naturally to me.” —President Barack Obama on Meet The Press, Sunday.
