Barack Obama’s Hypocritical Stance Toward the Israel/Hamas Conflict

    Barack Obama hasn’t even taken office yet, and Congress is mulling over his plans for an economic stimulus plan.  He’s issued several statements from “The Office of the President-Elect” several times on his plans to get the economy back up and running.  Heck, he’s even trying to pull off the greatest con job by telling us that building bridges will create millions of new jobs. | Read More »

    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.

    Quote of the Day.

    If someone was sending rockets on my house where my daughters were sleeping at night, I would do everything to stop it, and I would expect Israelis to do the same thing. That particular quote comes from President-elect Barack Obama, and I offer it up as a goad to anybody who was deluding him or herself that the new administration was going to finally rid | Read More »

    On Spam and Israel: Why is Obama Silent?

    I’ll make this short and sweet. Since the election in November the American people have been “treated” to a statement or press conference of some sort from the imaginary “Office of the President-elect” on a daily basis. The subjects of said publicity stunts have ranged from the economic stimulus package, to increasing taxes, to appointments, to dealing with the Blago scandal, to how “outraged” Obama | Read More »

    Britain Whines: “It’s All About Me!”

    I don’t want much from the Federal government. In fact, I want a lot less from it than they’re usually trying to provide. One thing I do expect, though, is for the Federal government to provide me with a reasonably safe haven from dangers of the world outside our borders. In my opinion, a government that fails to provide domestic security for its citizens has | Read More »

    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 »

    On “Disproportionate Response”, “Remarkable Restraint”, and Kucinich

    Once again, Israel has had enough of near daily rocket attacks; Israeli population centers in southern Israel have been the target of over 4,000 rockets, as well as thousands of mortar shells, fired by Hamas and other organizations since 2001. Rocket attacks increased by 500 percent after Israel withdrew completely from the Gaza Strip in August 2005. During an informal six-month lull, some 215 rockets | Read More »

    Telling

    When passages like the one contained in this story appear in discussing the most recent eruption of conflict between Israel and Hamas, you know that Hamas may well have stepped in it: There were protests and demonstrations against the offensive throughout the Arab world, as well as in several European capitals. In the occupied West Bank as well as in Israel, Palestinian demonstrators clashed repeatedly | Read More »

    Israel Airstrikes Gaza

    Not a lot for me to add other than Israel is about 3000 Hamas fired rockets too late. Also Ill point out the obligatory: “The strikes caused widespread panic and confusion in Gaza, as black clouds of smoke rose above the territory, ruled by Hamas for the past 18 months. Some of the Israeli missiles struck in densely populated areas as children were leaving school, | Read More »

    Why the “nuclear umbrella” is bad for Israel

    Barack Obama recently announced that he will implement a policy to have a “nuclear umbrella” over Israel. At first, that sounds good. You almost imagine a forcefield like protection against our closest Middle East ally with nuclear bombs bouncing off it. But, as a foreign policy matter, this is a terrible idea with negative consequences for both the United States and Israel. First, Obama is | Read More »
