Israel Warns Civilians to Stay out of Harm’s Way; Hamas Sends Them Back In

Posted by  ▪  July 10, 2014

Israel has a strategy for reducing collateral damage, what’s “contentious” or “controversial” about that?

As Operation Protective Edge it’s worth anticipating the likely response to Israel’s latest war against Hamas.

Already there’s been at least one incident in which a number of civilians were injured and and 7…

Hillary Clinton’s Big Lie about Hobby Lobby

Posted by  ▪  July 10, 2014

Purposely and cleverly duplicitous, shameless demagoguery of the worst sort

Hillary Clinton is a lawyer, and a smart one at that. So she knows better than this statement she made about the Hobby Lobby SCOTUS decision: It’s very troubling that a salesclerk at Hobby Lobby who needs contraception, which is pretty expensive, is not going to get that service through her…

Elephants at Israeli zoo huddle to protect young as sirens wail

Posted by  ▪  July 9, 2014

Unlike Hamas leaders who huddle their young around them to protect themselves.

From our good friend Anne in Petah Tikva, a story and translation regarding the zoo in Ramat Gan near Tel Aviv: In contrast to the inhuman behaviour of the terrorists, the elephants at the Ramat Gan Safari showed how they protect their young during an air raid alert. This must be one…

Email incriminates Lerner in scheme to evade Congressional oversight — used unarchived instant messages

Darrell Issa has tweeted out an email exchange involving Lois Lerner in April 2013, in which she attempts to scope out what email records get retained, and cautions that because Congress may seek emails, “we need to be cautious about what we say in emails”. The full email exchange is…

According to breaking reports, Hamas has fired several rockets towards the Dimona nuclear reactor. Destroying the reactor and unleashing nuclear contamination has been a long-standing goal of Hezbollah, Iran and Hamas.

“Self-righteously suicidal” Jews

Posted by  ▪  July 9, 2014

They ignore the reality of Jew hatred as a powerful motivating anti-Israel force.

I never liked the phrase “self-hating Jew.” Seems way too subjective, and the exception not the rule for those left-wing Jews who see only evil in Israel, and only good in Israel’s enemies. Certainly, there are self-hating Jews, many of whom populate the anti-Israel boycott movement. But for the most part, they don’t hate…

MSNBC reports: Transfers, harassment, altered personnel records, mysterious breaks between paychecks. Those are just some of the forms of retaliation described by four whistleblowers from four different regional VA…

The Skewed Middle Eastern Moral Equivalence of the NY Times

Posted by  ▪  July 9, 2014

The Times ignores the pervasiveness and acceptance of Palestinian incitement

The New York Times, in the past week, has twice drawn a false moral equivalence between Israeli society and Palestinian society. Last week after the killing of Mohammad Abu Khdair, Isabel Kershner of the New York Times wrote: The two events exposed the extent to which parts of each side have dehumanized the…
