Should more Israelis be dying to satisfy critics and make it a more “fair” fight?

An argument which is being used against Israel and which is quite nonsensical is that the low Israeli casualty rate from over a thousand Hamas rockets somehow makes the higher Palestinian casualty rate a war crime or otherwise indefensible.

Elizabeth Warren now “just like West Virginians”

Posted by  ▪  July 14, 2014

How in the world will injecting Warren into the West Virginia Senate race possibly help Democrats?

I did a double take when I saw this headline, Meet the anti-Elizabeth Warren. Then I saw the image and realized it was the “anti-Elizabeth Warren” in the sense of a female politician who is the opposite of Warren. Phew. From the story: Rep. Shelley Moore Capito’s friends and colleagues in Washington are so certain…
