U.N. condemns Israel, U.S. for
not sharing Iron Dome with Hamas

Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 8/1/2014 1:25:21 PM

The United Nations slammed Israel for possibly committing war crimes in its fight against Hamas — and then backed that accusation by suggesting the Jewish nation ought to be sharing its Iron Dome defensive technology with the very terror group it’s fighting. U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said to members of the media at an “emergency” meeting of the U.N. Human Rights Council that Israel was falling short in its duty to protect citizens in the Gaza Strip from getting killed by its rockets. “There is a strong possibility that international law has been violated, in a

Comments:
Just when you thought you heard everything ... share your technology and weapons with your enemy???? Don´t they understand the concept of war? One side beats the other. This is not a grade school t-ball game.

The UN is the home of the brainless.

Good grief, you obviously can´t fix stupid. The UN needs to go somewhere else, why do they get to live the high life in America. Their headquarters should be set up where they are needed most, Africa comes to mind.

The U.S. sHould stop all payments to the U.N. and get out of the U.N., which would be then be free to move its headquarters to Gaza or some hell-hole in Africa.

Israel is falling short of its duty to protect citizens in Gaza. Seems to me the Gaza government, i.e. Hamas is the one not only falling short but actually putting them in harms way. U.N is full of useful idiots.

There are credible reports that the IDF has uncovered at least 2 tunnels from Gaza into Israel that originate in UN buildings.
How about reporting THAT?

With all due respect (zero) to the clueless Ms. Pillay, Israel *asks* for such a stupid accusation every time they try to *avoid* collateral damage, by careful targetting, by using expensive precision munitions, by using the smallest possible bombs, and of course most of all, by WARNING that they are about to bomb something.

In a war, these are all horrible mistakes.

Israel is trying to fight a war and not fight a war, and it invites the Pillays of the world to stick their stupidity (even if, heaven forfend, it is well-meaning stupidity) into the mix with these kinds of comments.

Now, why didn´t anyone think of that before??

Oh, I think the UN moron forgot to mention there is a second step needed to achieve lasting peace: After Israel gives Hamas the Iron Dome, they should give Iran their entire nucler arsenal and open all the checkpoints to allow arabs free range anywhere within Israel they want to go.

THEN, we will have peace in the Mideast.

Actually, this is genius. She is trying to help Israel. How simple, IDF would simply program all the missiles to go to targets within Gaza and blow them up. IDF could then go into the business of resupply and make a profit. Hamas would never catch on and if they did , they would be too embarrassed to tell.

There is gross stupidity here but I noticed a great irony as well. The Iron Dome is an outgrowth of the Reagan Defence initiative which was ridiculed by the left as "Star Wars" It was a difficult engineering problem but after years of work it is becoming a reality. What is wrong with having defensive weapons when the offensive weapons ( Nuclear Missiles ) have left everyone defenceless? It is a good thing. Reagan was told it was impossible. That was not true. Reagan had confidence in the inventiveness of people and worked with them on a difficult problem. He has been proved a visionary years after his death! Now the left which first ridiculed this idea calls it a war crime if it is not shared with the enemy! Let us all hear it from the left - you were wrong and Reagan was right. There should be no objection to defensive weapons especially when the offensive weapons have been developed to a much greater extent. Give Reagan the credit he deserves but stop expecting anyone to surrender to people who are determined to kill them!

The Ebola patient being treated in Texas told authorities he flew part of his trip on United Airlines, a spokesperson for the airline said, citing information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The airline believes the patient flew from Brussels to Washington Dulles and then from Dulles to Dallas-Fort Worth on September 20, the spokesperson said. "The director of the CDC has stated there is ´zero risk of transmission´ on any flight on which the patient flew because he was not symptomatic until several days after his trip and could not have been contagious on the dates he

A Brooklyn Technical HS? teacher who called a female student his “little sex slave” and said she could give him a “striptease” any time should not be fired, a state appeals court ruled. The panel of judges upheld the unpaid, six-month suspension of Steven Ostrin, a once-popular social studies teacher at Tech, which has since been rocked by the arrest of another teacher, accused of having sexual relationships with as many as seven female students. “The hearing officer made clear that the case turned entirely on the credibility of the witnesses and such determinations ‘are largely unreviewable,’” the judges said

Arthur Sulzberger Jr., the newspaper’s publisher, and Mark Thompson, its chief executive, said that in addition to the job cuts, NYT Opinion, a new mobile app dedicated to opinion content, was shutting down because it was not attracting enough subscribers.

A nerdy teacher at prestigious Brooklyn Tech High School had sexual relationships with at least seven female students — and rewarded some of them with perfect grades, authorities said Tuesday. Teacher Sean Shaynak “would routinely give [one teen] 100s in his class even though she turned in work with no answers,” Brooklyn prosecutor Joseph Mancino said at the suspect’s arraignment. The bespectacled, bow-tied professor, 44, “groomed’’ his young victims for sex while teaching math and science at the famed school, which counts Mayor Bill de Blasio’s son, Dante, among its students, authorities said.

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper.

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

Count House Speaker John Boehner as a fan of Jeb Bush for president. He also hasn´t spoken to Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in two years. The driving issue of the 2016 election will be “competence,” and if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush runs, “he’s got a real shot” at winning, the Ohio Republican told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Tuesday. Boehner applauded Bush’s ability to “talk about Republican issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007. He also called potential candidates Ohio Gov. John

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus

Nolen, whose Facebook page indicates that he recently converted to Islam, is accused of attacking co-workers Colleen Hufford and Traci Johnson after he was reportedly fired for "personnel issues" from a Vaughan Foods factory. He reportedly beheaded Hufford, 54, and stabbed Johnson, 43, multiple times before being shot by reserve police officer

A white Ohio woman is suing a Downers Grove-based sperm bank, alleging that the company mistakenly gave her vials from an African-American donor, a fact that she said has made it difficult for her and her same-sex partner to raise their now 2-year-old daughter in an all-white community. Jennifer Cramblett, of Uniontown, Ohio, alleges in the lawsuit filed Monday in Cook County Circuit Court that Midwest Sperm Bank sent her the vials of an African-American donor´s sperm in September 2011 instead of those of a white donor that she and her white partner had ordered.
