On the Ground in Gaza
Please welcome Dr. Barry Rubin, head of the Herzliya, Israel-based GLORIA Center, to the front page at RedState. -Jeff Tel Aviv, Israel — Israel didn’t want to attack the Gaza Strip from the ground or from the air. Hamas, which had long broken the ceasefire, canceled it altogether. Then it began large-scale attacks on Israel. This is a war of defense. And it is being | Read More »
Quote Of The Day
Some geopolitical conflicts are morally complicated. The Israel-Gaza war is not. It possesses a moral clarity not only rare but excruciating. Israel is so scrupulous about civilian life that, risking the element of surprise, it contacts enemy noncombatants in advance to warn them of approaching danger. Hamas, which started this conflict with unrelenting rocket and mortar attacks on unarmed Israelis — 6,464 launched from Gaza | Read More »
Israel looks to play game changer in its war with Hamas
Pretty good take on the current conflict between Israel and Hamas. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) are ramped up in away that has not been seen since 2006 and maybe before that. The IDF’s current military operations against Hamas are offering all the conditions for a much larger picture in terms of military action and a political statement in the region. With well over several | Read More »
Moonbat McKinney follow up
I posted here about Cynthia McKinney and her ship dinky little boatload of fools and their aborted mission to deliver medical supplies to Gaza. It was obviously a publicity stunt to try to denigrate Israel and the U.S., with giving comfort to terrorists as a secondary goal.
Ship of fools turned away from Gaza
When the IAF struck back after Israel finally said “enough” to Qassam rocket and mortar fire from Hamas, the first thought America’s terrorist-loving “peace activists” had was to load up a ship full of medical supplies for the oppressed and misunderstood terrorists and set sail for the Gaza Strip. Aboard was former Georgia congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, who never misses an opportunity to pay back her | Read More »

In the occupied West Bank as well as in Israel, Palestinian demonstrators clashed repeatedly | Read More »
Reuters’s “Israel-Hamas Violence Disrupts Gaza Truce” News: A Welcome Surprise or a Early Test for Obama?

An excerpt from Reuters report Israel-Hamas violence disrupts Gaza truce Wed Nov 5, 2008 10:23am EST is as follows: Hamas fired dozens of rockets at Israel on Wednesday | Read More »
Israel’s Day of Reckoning
This blurb on Yahoo! scares the living hell out of me. In the caption next to the photo it describes the man working at the computer to be a Palestinian “refugee” working for the Obama campaign via the web-based call center. Where is this refugee? He’s in a Gaza refugee camp… known breeding grounds for Hamas and recruiting base for Palestinian terrorists. Am I making | Read More »
Can Obama be trusted on Israel?
Sen. Barack Obama’s priorities were revealed in his answer to the following question from moderator Brian Williams in the Democrats’ first presidential debate back in the Spring of 2007:
MENE, MENE, TEKEL, and PARSIN
In this day and age, we have every opportunity, to do our homework, educate ourselves and to also, be reminded of history. I am sure most folks have heard the expression, “I can see the writing on the wall” This is where a little history, explains where that came from. “And this is the writing that was inscribed: MENE, MENE, TEKEL, and PARSIN.” What does | Read More »

A question regarding Obama and Hamas
One of the few moments in the debate between Republican Joe Biden and Democrat Sarah Palin (follow the link) when I raised my eyebrow and said, “That sounds off” from either side – on the whole, there were only a few exaggerations during the evening – came when Joe Biden mentioned the the idea that both he and Obama had warned against the Bush administration’s | Read More »
It’s Time To Remind The Electorate Of One Little Fact
It’s time to remind the electorate of one little fact, and that fact is that the extreme factions in the Middleast have a huge interest in an Obama win. They will no doubt feel emboldened and there is sure to be a surge if Obama wins, however it won’t be a US Military surge, it’ll be a Jihad surge of the utmost importance. Remember this | Read More »
Will Barack Obama Use Islamofascist Terrorists For Security?
Yesterday I saw the World Net Daily article suggesting Islamofascist terrorist organizations, including the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, will be providing security for Obama in Palestinian territory. Tony Blair, in a recent trip to Israel, cancelled a trip into Palestinian territory because the Palestinians intended that arrangement for him. I did not blog this then because I tend to want other sources to back up | Read More »
