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 »
We, these RedState users, support Israel inre the Gaza offensive

And at this point Israel has ground troops conducting operations and engaging Hamas thugs in Gaza. Looks like they are not going to stop short of Baghdad, so to speak. Good on them! | Read More »
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 »

Good News: Russia to complete Iran nuclear plant in 2009.
Happy days are here again. Russia to complete Iran nuclear plant in 2009 The last line of the two-page article: “Russian and U.S. officials point to cooperation over Iran as an area where Moscow and Washington have been able to work together despite a general cooling of ties.” Here’s the skinny: The Germans (through The Siemens Corporation) couldn’t keep productivity and material on track to | Read More »

“….what could Obama offer Iran in exchange for an end to its nuclear program that Bush hasn’t already offered ?”
That’s the crux of an article by Caroline B. Glick on The Jewish World Review website. This is a very serious article that speaks volumes about the people who are coming into power in The USA. “The Perils Ahead” by Caroline B. Glick – Jewish World Review website article. I’m trying to form some thoughts about this, but can’t seem to start anything without delving | Read More »
My pre-election guesses went like so (ignoring the If McCain won guesses) :
Israeli Prime Minister Olmert: We Must Cede Parts Of Jerusalem
I’m speechless. Israeli P-M Olmert: We must cede parts of Jerusalem. —— —— I know popping up just one line as a diary entry isn’t Kosher (pun intended here), but I can’t figure out what to say. I’m numb at the utter madness of this. Kenneth L Solomon…………Typical Bitter Jewish God-Clinging Gun Owner And Barking Mad Insane NASCAR Fan.
Oh Israel, Hast Thou Taken the Wooden Nickel?
After questions about Obamas support, or lack there of, of Israel he went there and in front of the press supported Israel’s right of defense and existence. Given his association withfriends of Hamas etc. and other anti-Israel associates like his friendand sometimes mentor Farrakhan it’s hard for me to believe he is on Israels side. During his campaign he fired Robert Malley for meeting with | Read More »
The hope that something so despicable can NEVER happen again!
I was checking out the news stories on Lucianne when I came across this story and it reminded me of why the United States has always stood in defense of Israel. Israel is not a large country and they have nothing of value for America to defend her for BUT we have since the inception of the Israeli state. I see leftist who hate Israel | Read More »
Obama’s First History Making Crisis
What will Obama’s first international crisis be – one with life or death consequences. I’ve thought much about this, because it will come; there is no argument about that. The question is what and when? Here is my take on the most likely scenario: Israel will hold elections early next year. Last month, a coalition could not be formed by the ruling centrist Kadima party, | Read More »
