Hamas backers spend fortunes on rockets
and tunnels while Gazans live in misery

Fox News, by Paul Alster

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 8/9/2014 8:49:55 AM

HAIFA, Israel – The latest ceasefire between Israel and Hamas ended Friday morning when Hamas resumed its costly campaign of rocket attacks on Israel even as its 2 million constituents suffer from wrenching poverty. Although the millions of Palestinians packed into the small strip suffer from chronic unemployment, and lack of electricity and running water, Hamas and its backers such as Qatar have spent hundreds of millions of dollars on tunnels and rockets with one goal in mind: killing Israelis. “When you look at what Hamas did with all the cement and the materials that went into Gaza for ‘building’,

Comments:
They keep them in poverty to keep them agitated. Sounds kinda familiar actually.

Exactly my point. When they took or was GIVEN Gaza.........WHY didn´t they build it up? No, they went into civilian´s homes and made the children dig tunnels from Gaza to Israel. They torture civilians because it´s FUN for them......War, maiming and torture is what they do and what they live for. They´ve proven their wickedness with their years and years of bombing and plans against Israel. But they also have VOWED for years and years ....to the News Media and Colleges in USA that their PLAN is to wipe out Saturday (Israel) AND Sunday (Christians) AND INFIDELS (that´s anyone who is not of their belief and customs or else). You idiots supporting Hamas are frighteningly stupid...imbecilic. There is no reason you should be this stupid with all information you can find and research to know the fact. But noooo.....you are more like the HERD mentality..you who cheer for HAMAS and curse Israel.

Cruel as it sounds Israel should go ahead and wipe them (Hamas) out even though they are imbedded within the civilian infrastructure. The collateral damage, while a tragedy, will prove fewer if Israel completes the job once and for all. Also, I recall the citizens of Gaza voted these terrorist savages into power. The world loses nothing if Gaza is completely bulldozed and all there are pushed into the sea.

FTA: The Qatari smoke screen of donating to ‘civilian projects’ fools few people, Israeli officials say.

Maybe no one in Israel is fooled but the rest of the world willingly believes the humanitarian lie.

The Hamas are Gazaians . It are more than 3 or 4 individuals who fired these thousands of rockets, This has happened again and again. They are very slow learners.

Giving money to Gaza to "rebuild" will only result in funding the next iteration of the endless campaign to destroy Israel.

The Obama administration claiming the taxpayer money thus thrown away is "only for civilian relief" is as silly as telling your neighbors across the lake that you are only peeing in your side.
One of the first things Obama did was to send Hamas over three quarters of a billon taxpayer dollars for "humanitarian purposes." Those chickens came to roost in the form of missiles fired at Israel. The next batch of ObamaBucks will be no different.

There are strict requirements in the law governing funds to the Palestinians. On their part, it must be "publicly acknowledged the Jewish state of Israel´s right to exist" as well as specific actions taken to purge itself of terrorist activities and actors.
S. 2370 Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act of 2006
This law can be viewed @ https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/109/s2370/text

However,Section 11 has reporting requirements for the U.S. Secretary of State.

Not later than 90 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, and annually thereafter, the Secretary of State shall submit to the appropriate congressional committees a report that--

(1) describes the steps that have been taken by the United States Government to ensure that other countries and international organizations, including multilateral development banks, do not provide direct assistance to the Palestinian Authority for any period for which a certification described in section 620K(b) of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 (as added by section 2(b)(2) of this Act) is not in effect with respect to the Palestinian Authority; and

(2) identifies any countries and international organizations, including multilateral development banks, that are providing direct assistance to the Palestinian Authority during such a period, and describes the nature and amount of such assistance.


Could we get a look at those reports?

Pray that Gazans come to realize that Israel is not their enemy--Hamas is their enemy. The mainstream media plays on the sympathy for “innocent” Gazan children losing their lives in this conflict, but realists know that if the parents of these children had not supported Hamas, their children would not be dead or suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder. Further, their lives and the lives of their children would not be subjected to poverty if the billions of dollars Hamas spent on tunnels had been spent on an all-inclusive, humane infrastructure for Gaza.

I´m also guessing that before that fortune is spent on rockets and tunnels, a modest percentage is funneled in to western bank accounts for Hamas leaders´ "living expenses."

You know, like the millions Arafat kept in French and Swiss banks.

Anybody know how many of our tax dollars went to Palestine ?

Try not to forget that in a previous peace talk, Jews gave up their homes and farms in the Gaza Strip, only for Hamas to use it as a launching pad.

Try not to forget GW signed US up take 100,000 into our country.

A human rights group reports that Islamic State militants in a Kurdish area of northern Syria have beheaded seven men and three women as part of an apparent campaign to quell resistance to the group. (Snip) Referring to President Obama´s speech on the treat of the militant group, Cantlie says: "It was all disappointingly predictable; America is good, the Islamic State is bad; and they will be defeated using aircraft and a motley collection of fighters on the ground. For their part the Islamic State say they welcome meeting Obama´s under-construction army." Also on Tuesday, British warplanes joined in airstrikes

   

 



 
Iraq Pilots Mistakenly Gave Food,

NBC News, by Staff    Original Article

An investigation was underway Tuesday after Iraqi military pilots mistakenly gave food, water and ammunition to enemy ISIS militants instead of their own soldiers, a senior security official and a brigadier told NBC News. The supplies were supposed to help besieged Iraqi army officers and soldiers who had been fighting Islamist extremists for a week in Saglawyah and the village of Al-Sijar in the country’s western province of Anbar. “Some pilots, instead of dropping these supplies over the area of the Iraqi army, threw it over the area that is controlled by ISIS fighters,” said Hakim Al-Zamili, a Sadrist lawmaker

Isil fighters advance to

Posted By: NorthernDog- 9/30/2014 12:14:08 AM     Post Reply
The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) made fresh advances in both Syria and Iraq on Monday, in defiance of the escalating United States-led bombing campaign against the jihadist group. For almost two months now, Tomahawk missiles and F22 Raptor jet fighters have bombarded the bases, strategic assets and front-line positions of Isil jihadists. But the group’s encroachment on Baghdad is steadily progressing and it is close to seizing a key Kurdish village on the Syria-Turkey border. Isil gunmen were reported to be six miles away from some points of Baghdad, and were holding their ground at a

In one of the most closely-watched Senate races of the year, incumbent Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan of North Carolina holds a narrow three-point advantage over her Republican challenger, according to a new CNN/ORC International survey. But the poll indicates that Thom Tillis, the GOP nominee, may be falling behind Hagan because a Libertarian candidate could be siphoning off Republican votes. (Snip) Hagan´s favorable rating is 46%, indicating that everyone who likes her is going to vote for her. But Tillis gets a 47% favorable rating among likely voters, yet only 43% of the vote.

OKLAHOMA CITY - A spokesman for an Oklahoma City Islamic group says a man accused of beheading one woman and attacking another at a food processing plant from which he was fired was seen as "a little odd" and "a little weird" by those who attended the same mosque he did.

Cost of bombing ISIL cheap
compared with Afghan War
USA Today, by Tom Vanden Brook    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 9/26/2014 3:41:49 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — The U.S. military is spending as much as $10 million per day on its new air war against Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria, a relative pittance compared with the hundreds of millions it spent fighting every day in Afghanistan in 2013. The costs in Iraq and Syria will escalate substantially if, as President Obama and Pentagon officials have said, the new war lasts for years, according to military analysts. Flying and maintaining warplanes requires a substantial investment in weaponry and personnel. "If airstrikes in Syria and Iraq continue for as long as the president predicts, they

Even as U.S. airstrikes continued to pound Islamic State positions in Syria, Kurdish fighters told FoxNews.com the terror organization was advancing on the Syrian town of Kobani, where as many as 400,000 residents and refugees are holed up. “Tell the world what is happening” said Rooz Bahjat, a senior Kurdish military officer said Wednesday by phone. “This could be a massacre if no help arrives.” Desperate field commanders in Kobani, also known as Ayn al-Arab, fear the worst unless help arrives soon, and note 70,000 refugees have already fled across the border into Turkey.

‘Imminent Attack’ on U.S. Prompted
Strikes on Khorasan Group

Airstrikes in Syria against the extremist Khorasan group were prompted by planning for an “imminent” terror attack on U.S. soil, the Pentagon said. (Snip) Amid attention on the threat from Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, Khorasan has emerged in recent weeks as a more immediate peril in the view of the U.S. intelligence community because it’s more focused on attacking America and Europe. The militant group is made up of a “network of seasoned al-Qaeda veterans” preparing to attack “United States and Western interests,” the Defense Department said in a statement. That “puts them at the top of groups threatening

As many as 500,000 people could be infected with Ebola virus disease by the end of January, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The CDC estimate, due to be released this week, is based on “dynamic modeling” and assumes no additional aid to help battle the disease, a person familiar with the report told the Washington Post. Infectious-disease experts, aid workers and global health advocates said the number of Ebola cases is increasing much more rapidly than the World Health Organization, or WHO, had projected, especially in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, collectively the

The hostages - 46 Turks and three Iraqis - were seized in Mosul, Iraq when militants overran the city in June. They were released and returned to Turkey on Saturday.

On Sunday, a gaggle of queer folks will be joining the “People’s Climate March,” a rally in New York City projected to attract more than 100,000 attendees. Unfortunately, those who could help the cause the most are the least likely to show up. Marching under banners such as “Queers for the Climate,” LGBT climate activists are, first and foremost, agitating for action on climate change. But they are also saying something about what LGBT activism should be about, and saying something quite different from the (current) gay mainstream. The question is whether they can make an impact.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

The man who jumped the White House fence this month and sprinted through the front door made it much farther into the building than previously known, overpowering one Secret Service officer and running through much of the main floor, according to three people familiar with the incident. An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert guards to an intruder had been muted at what officers believed was a request of the usher’s office, said a Secret Service official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

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. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who has three felony convictions relating to assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols. Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner. The latest embarrassment for the Secret Service comes after agency Director Julia Pierson told lawmakers at a Tuesday hearing

The L.A. Times is warning that the “worst is yet to come” if a grand jury fails to indict white officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing black 18-year-old Michael Brown. 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

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran. Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

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.)

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."

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.
