Five People Wounded
in Mortar Shell Strike

Arutz Sheva [Israel], by Shlomo Pitrikovsky

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 8/24/2014 9:13:54 AM

Barrages of rockets at southern communities continue at an increased pace Sunday morning. In the latest salvo, five people were injured by a mortar shell fired at the Erez Crossing near the Gaza border. Two people have been injured critically and one is suffering moderate to serious injuries. [Snip] Hamas´s Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades claims it fired 13 mortar shells at the crossing. Dozens of rockets have exploded in open areas Sunday; several were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system over Sderot and Ashkelon. Earlier this morning, one person was moderately injured by shrapnel in Ashkelon, as two rockets

Comments:
As Hamas ups the number of rockets and mortars it fires into Israel, the number of dead and wounded civilians rises. Netanyahu promised the Israeli response would increase and it has. Yesterday, instead of targeting just a floor housing an important Hamas center, the IAF took out the entire 13-story building.

Israelis, in a continuous war for their very existence, mourn, but remain steadfast, every citizen´s death.

The US, by comparison, turns from the world scene to become highly emotional and lawless in some areas due to the death of a black thug caused by a white policeman acting in self defense.

Can it be said that one democracy is better than the other?

For those accessing the live feed (coming from the building where AP´s Gaza office is located), these noises you currently hear seem to be attempts to repair or build a shield for wind affecting the microphone.

Equality in this war,means Israel has more casualties. The hamas media has done a great PR battle. That is, with the compliance of the MSM.

Senior US Congressman Eliot Engel (D-NY) and Ed Royce (R-Calif) held a press conference together with Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman Wednesday to emphasize the importance of the US-Israel alliance. Royce, who is a Chairs the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said the reason for both the popular support for Israel among the American population, as well as strong bipartisan support in Congress, was Israel´s status as a beacon of democratic values amid a sea of brutality and turmoil in the Middle East. Engel, who is also a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, echoed those sentiments.

American journalist Steven Sotloff, who was brutally beheaded by the Islamic State terrorist group, took great risks to keep his Jewish faith in captivity, a former fellow-captive of the murdered journalist told Yediot Aharonoth. However, it turns out that Sotloff was in fact Israeli. A media gag order on the issue was released on Wednesday, allowing publication of the fact that Sotloff made aliyah (immigration) to Israel in 2005 by himself, and studied at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya. Sotloff reportedly made sure to fast in secret during Yom Kippur and even prayed in the direction of Jerusalem, as is customary in Jewish

From Vladimir Putin as International Man of the Year to Kim Jong-Un as Humanitarian of the Year, a tongue-in-cheek list of GQ Awards’ winners has been unveiled. The mocked-up winners’ list, which was posted on Twitter today, appears to have been prompted by Tony Blair’s surprise Philanthropist of the Year award. The former Prime Minister picked up the gong for his efforts in ‘establishing three charities’ at the central London awards ceremony--much to the surprise of the star-studded audience which was said to be ‘muted’ as his name was read out.

The US has confirmed that the video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff by Islamic State militants is authentic. Mr Sotloff, 31, was abducted in northern Syria in August 2013. President Barack Obama warned the killers that "our reach is long and justice will be served". [Snip] Mr Obama, speaking in Estonia, said the beheading was a "horrific act of violence and we cannot begin to imagine the agony everyone who loves Steven is feeling right now. Our country grieves with them". He added: "We will not be intimidated. This horrific act only unites us."

Ukraine´s President Petro Poroshenko says he has agreed with Russian President Vladimir Putin by phone on a "permanent ceasefire" with rebels.

He is due to hold talks in the capital Tallinn with the presidents of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, all former Soviet states which joined Nato a decade ago.

A platoon of about 30 men may take part in an annual US-Ukraine exercise involving hundreds of troops around Lviv near the Polish border.

U.S. drone strikes are believed to have killed the leader of the Somali terrorist group al-Shabab, who ordered the massacre at a Kenyan shopping mall last year that killed 67 people. U.S. Intelligence officials believe Ahmed Abdi Godane was traveling in a two-car convoy Monday night near al-Shabab´s main base in Barawe when American drone aircraft hit the vehicles with missiles. Six people were killed in the attack and Somali authorities say they think Godane is among the dead--though the Pentagon said it is still awaiting confirmation. Godane, also known as Mukhtar Abu Zubeyr, is al-Shabab´s spiritual leader under whose direction the

Barack Obama has often scorned American foreign policy that took military action for action´s sake – but the apparent beheading of a second American hostage now presents a profound test of this position. [Snip] The gaffe prompted derision from his political opponents who said the president was not judicious, as his supporters contend, but weak and indecisive. However the apparent killing of the two Americans in the most gruesome manner imaginable now plunges this issue right through the psychological defences of a war-weary middle America that has tried to keep the collapse of Iraq at arms-length. For months now, Isil has

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees urged the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on US soil. The bipartisan pair shared a dire warning against Isis, which now has control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from that region and beheaded American journalist James Foley. “This is

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

President Obama’s spokesman emphasized that the United States tried to save journalist Steven Sotloff, who has reportedly been beheaded by ISIS terrorists. “The United States, as you know, has dedicated significant time and resources to try and rescue Mr. Sotloff,” Earnest told reporters when alerted that ISIS had claimed to have executed the kidnapped reporter. In the video, the authenticity of which Earnest could confirm, Sotloff is apparently killed by the same British jihadist who killed American photojournalist James Foley. “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State,”

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

Just resign already. Go. Be gone. Vamoose. Get out of our lives. More important: Stop endangering all of us with your self-indulgent vacations and self-absorbed dithering, along with unconstitutional domestic power plays while the whole world burns. Barack Obama already is derelict in his duties as commander in chief. He ought to abdicate and just step off his self-made throne. Knowledgeable people were calling for Obama to begin air strikes against the Islamic State barbarians months before Obama could rouse himself to admit that the brutes were something other than “jayvee” terrorists.

WASHINGTON — The current Congress is on track to be the worst ever at passing laws since modern record-keeping began, with three of its lawmakers failing to introduce a single bill, The Post has learned. The divided House and Senate have managed to pass just 163 laws that garnered President Obama’s signature since the two-year term began in January 2013. At this rate, Congress will have no problem beating the previous record set during the 2011-2013 session in which 284 laws were passed. That was down from 385 laws passed in the 2009-2011 session.

Sometime on Saturday night, vandals attacked three Christian houses of worship in Columbus, Indiana, spray-painting the word "infidels" and citations of verses from the Koran on the outer walls. St. Bartholomew Catholic Church, Lakeview Church of Christ, and East Columbus Christian Church all had the word "infidels" spray-painted on them, in places of prominence to be seen by worshipers. Cited in the Indianapolis Star, Columbus police spokesperson Matt Harris said that church employees discovered the vandalism when they arrived to prepare for Sunday services. At St. Bartholomew, the words "Qur´an 3:151" were also left. That verse reads:
