Despite Sequester ‘Belt Tightening’, Obama Still Manages To Give Half A Billion U.S. Tax Dollars To Hamas

Under Sequester, U.S. Giving Islamists $500 Million – Investors Business Daily

The sequester has “cost jobs,” says President Obama, and “gutted investments in education and science and medical research.” But somehow he’s earmarked $500 million for Hamas terrorists.

.

Circumventing Congress and with no fanfare, President Obama last week issued an executive order enabling him to send an additional $500 million directly to the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank – much of which you can bet will wind up going to the Iranian-backed Hamas terrorist organization.

According to Obama, “it is important to the national security interests of the United States to waive the provisions of” Congress’ legislative restrictions “in order to provide funds… to the Palestinian Authority.”

At the beginning of his first term, Obama promised close to $1 billion in aid to the Palestinian Authority, with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pledging none of it would reach Hamas.

But the Hebrew-language newspaper Yediot Acharonot has documented that tens of millions of dollars in aid for the PA – from Israel – ended up being used by Hamas for weapons. If Israel can’t guarantee its own aid is safe, how can we?

What’s more, back in February, the president was warning that the “meat cleaver” of the impending budget sequester of automatic spending cuts would “jeopardize our military readiness” – the budget ax having amazingly already “forced the Navy to delay an aircraft carrier that was supposed to deploy to the Persian Gulf” even before it came into effect.

Sequester was going to force the government to “let criminals go,” Obama claimed, jeopardize “air traffic controllers and airport security,” cause tens of thousands of parents “to scramble to find child care,” and put “hundreds of thousands of Americans” at greater risk of cancer and flu.

Well, the sequester has been supposedly devastating the functions of the federal government for nearly five months now.

And yet the president just managed to pull a half-billion dollars in taxpayer money out of the U.S. Treasury’s hat to fund further an organization that will likely finance more rockets to kill Israeli citizens on their home soil.

When Hamas started winning elections, a realistic Bush administration wisely determined that the ballot box was no road to peace in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip anytime soon.

President Obama, on the other hand – not unlike Jimmy Carter’s policies toward communists in Central America – thinks we can bribe these thugs into civilizing themselves.

That in fact was the whole ethos of his 2009 “New Beginning” speech at Cairo University. Obama opened the door to the subsequent “Arab Spring” that has seen regimes friendly to the U.S. be replaced with Islamists.

Muslim Brotherhood flunky Mohamed Morsi’s rule was threat enough for the Egyptian military to step in, and Morsi now finds himself accused of colluding with – guess who? – Hamas.

In Syria, the White House was convinced that the wild card of Islamist rebels taking control was preferable to menacing secularist dictator Bashar al-Assad; in Libya, Muammar Gadhafi, whose nuclear weapons program was neutralized by the Bush administration’s aggressive waging of the global war on terror, was replaced by an Islamist regime that remains a question mark.

Now, for the sake of restarting negotiations with Palestinians this week after a three-year hiatus, the Israeli government is releasing over 100 Arab militants, some sentenced to life, whose crimes include throwing firebombs at a bus carrying children and stabbing and shooting elderly Jews.

As Israeli Economic Minister Naftali Bennett quipped to Israel’s Haaretz newspaper, it amounts to freeing “a hundred terrorists for a process. We are showing the world that, for us, everything is negotiable.”

Thanks to President Obama, it’s a hundred terrorists and $500 million. Apparently, neither Israeli pride nor American budget constraints can stop the appeasement of Islamist terrorists.

CAIR leader calls for destruction of Israel

Via Weasel Zippers

Via FPM:

The slogan, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” can be heard regularly from the shores of the Gaza Strip, emanating from members of terrorist groups, including Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad. The river represents the Jordan River, and the sea is the Mediterranean – both sides of Israel. Essentially, this means the destruction of Israel.

Khaled Meshaal, the global head of Hamas, stated something similar, when he made his historic visit to Gaza this month. He said, “Palestine is ours from the river to the sea and from the south to the north.” Just one week previous to that, the leader of another Islamist group, Cyrus McGoldrick, repeated the slogan on Facebook and Twitter. Except he did not state it from the Middle East, he made it from the United States.

McGoldrick is the Civil Rights Manager and spokesman for the New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations or CAIR-New York. The national organization of CAIR was founded in June 1994 as a part of the umbrella group created by then-global Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzook. [Today, Marzook is the number two leader under Meshaal.] As well, CAIR was named a party to Hamas financing by the U.S. Justice Department for two federal trials against the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF). CAIR had asked people to donate money to the terrorist HLF charity via CAIR’s national website.

When fighting broke out between Hamas, who was firing hundreds of rockets into Israeli civilian neighborhoods, and Israel, who was responding to the Hamas fire by targeting terrorist infrastructure, McGoldrick didn’t flinch as to which side he was supporting. On November 12 on Twitter, he wrote,“Gaza under attack for the last few days. May G-d protect them [Hamas] and grant them victory.” Just two days earlier, McGoldrick had attended a CAIR banquet in Tampa, Florida. Just one day earlier, he had praised Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

On November 15, McGoldrick tweeted, “Palestine is a land occupied by foreign settlers. They [Hamas] have the right to resist, to defend themselves, ‘by any means necessary.’”

Islamist pig. Why does our government allow this group to operate here?

Just so we are VERY clear where this blog stands

Ed and I stand with our strongest ally, and the only free country in the Middle East

And I would note that Hamas, and Hezbollah ought to be eradicated because there will NEVER be peace as long as these swine exist.

The fact is that many have bought into lies told by Leftists and terrorists who wish to destroy Israel, a nation which only wants to be let alone and live in peace. Here are the FACTS you need to know

The State of Israel was created in a peaceful and legal process by the United Nations. It was not created out of Palestinian lands, but rather out of the Ottoman Empire, which had been ruled for 400 years by the Turks who lost it when they, fighting alongside Germany, were defeated in World War I. There were no “Palestinian” lands at the time because there were no people claiming to be Palestinians, but rather simply Arabs who lived in the region of Palestine.

It was only after World War I that the present states of Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and Iraq were also created – also out of the Turkish Empire by the British and French victors. Jordan was created on about 80 percent of the Palestine Mandate, which was originally designated by the League of Nations as part of the Jewish homeland. Since then, Jews have been prohibited from owning property there.

In 1947, a UN partition plan mandated the creation of two states on the remaining 20 percent of the Palestine Mandate: the State of Israel for the Jews, and another state for the stateless Arabs. But the rulers of eight Arab states did not want a non-Arab state anywhere in the Middle East. Thus they rejected the UN arrangement and simultaneously launched a three-front war of annihilation against the newly created state of Israel — on the very day of its creation in 1948. Israel begged for peace and offered friendship and cooperation to its neighbors. The Arab dictators rejected this offer and answered it with a war, which they ultimately lost.

A state of war in the Middle East has continued uninterruptedly ever since, because most of the Arab states have refused to sign a peace treaty with Israel, and have refused to recognize the legitimacy of the Jewish state. To this day, the Arab states and the Palestinians refer to the failure of their effort to destroy Israel as Al-Nakba – The Catastrophe. What for one people was a joyous founding, was seen by the other as a disaster.

Had there been no invasion of Israel by Arab armies whose intent was overtly genocidal, there would have been a state of Palestine in the West Bank and Gaza since 1948.

From 1949 to 1956, Egypt waged war against Israel, launching more than 9,000 attacks from terrorist cells set up in the refugee camps of the Gaza Strip. The 1956 “Sinai campaign” ended Egypt’s terror war, even though U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower forced Israeli Prime Minister Ben Gurion to return the Sinai to Egypt without a peace treaty.

But the Arab war continued on other fronts. In 1964, Yasser Arafat began a campaign of terror whose avowed goal was the destruction of Israel and the genocide of its Jews. Sponsored first by Kuwait, and later by Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Iraq, and Iran, Arafat declared unending war against Israel until all of “Palestine” would be liberated, redeemed in “fire and blood.”

In 1967, Egypt, Syria and Jordan attacked Israel for a second time and were again defeated. It was in repelling these aggressors that Israel came to control the West Bank and the Gaza strip, as well as the oil-rich Sinai desert. Israel elected not to annex these territories it had captured from the aggressors, but neither did it withdraw its armies or relinquish its control over the region because the Arabs once again refused to make peace.

In 1973 the Arab armies again attacked Israel. This invasion was led by Syria and Egypt, abetted by Iraq, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and five other countries that gave military support to the aggressors. Israel again defeated the Arab forces. Afterwards, Egypt – and Egypt alone — agreed to make a formal peace.

In 1987 the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) initiated a violent, six-year Intifada (uprising) directed against Israeli soldiers and civilians alike, after false rumors of Israeli atrocities had circulated through Palestinian territories. During the first four years of the uprising, Palestinians carried out more than 3,600 Molotov cocktail attacks, 100 hand grenade attacks, and 600 assaults with guns or explosives. These actions resulted in the deaths of 16 Israeli civilians and 11 Israeli soldiers, in addition to the wounding of more than 1,400 Israeli civilians and 1,700 Israeli soldiers.

In 1993 the Oslo peace process was initiated, based on the pledge that both parties would renounce violence as a means of settling their disputes. But the Palestinians never followed through on this pledge. During the so-called “peace process” — between 1993 and 1999 – they perpetrated more than 4,000 terrorist attacks that resulted in the deaths of more than 1,000 Israelis. During this same period, Israel gave the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza a self-governing authority, a 40,000-man armed “police force,” and 95 percent of the territory their negotiators demanded. But Israel’s efforts to achieve peace were in vain. In 2000, the Palestinians officially launched a new, second Intifada against Israel, effectively terminating the peace process.

More from Michael Medved

By the same token, when Israeli leaders declared their own independence in 1948, it represented a culmination of their nation-building efforts, not their initiation. More than 650,000 Jews already lived in a vibrant, dynamic, surprisingly cohesive civilization spread through several major cities (including the new metropolis of Tel Aviv, constructed on empty sand dunes in 1909) and scores of agricultural communities built on previously unoccupied land purchased from absentee owners. Intensive Jewish immigration began in the 1880s, more than two generations before independence, and produced distinctive political parties, labor unions, universities, newspapers, theater companies, and even symphony orchestras. This nation in formation also managed to defend itself against murderous Arab riots in 1921, 1929, 1936, and 1939, giving rise to the Haganah (“The Defense” in Hebrew), a militia that averaged 30,000 members over 30 years pre-independence, ultimately developing into the Israel Defense Forces. Like the Minutemen who gave rise to the Continental Army, these citizen soldiers fought a bloody struggle after formal independence, combating formidable foes determined to exterminate their new nation.

Greater care and clarity in describing the history of the conflict will encourage policymakers and the public to grasp its essential contours, and to recognize the absence of any real equivalence in the goals or strategies of the two sides.

Israel, in other words, wasn’t created by the U.N., the U.S. (which observed an arms embargo and provided no aid during the War of Independence), or any other outside agency. The nation grew from the patient, incremental, organic efforts of the Halutzim (pioneers) who risked everything to build a homeland for themselves and their posterity.

Nor did these efforts in any way “uproot” or “displace” Palestinian society. During the years of intensive immigration between World War I and World War II, the Jewish population west of the Jordan increased by 470,000 while the non-Jewish population swelled by 588,000. According to respected British census figures, the number of Palestinian Arabs exploded on the eve of Israeli independence, increasing 120 percent between 1922 and 1947. These figures prove that the rise of the Jewish state (with its greatly heightened economic development) drew more Palestinians into the area, rather than driving them away.

Palestinians became refugees only after fighting began in the War of Independence, especially after five Arab states with well-equipped armies invaded the fledgling Jewish state, pledged to achieve its total annihilation. Even then, in the midst of massive bloodshed and widespread violence, the Palestinian Arab population increased, rather than declining. In 1941, before Israeli independence and the claimed “uprooting” of Palestinians, 1,111,398 Arabs lived in what later became Israel, the West Bank and Gaza. Nine years later, after the turmoil of war and dislocation, that number had risen (slightly) to 1,162,100. By 1980 (with Israel controlling all territory west of the Jordan), the Palestinian numbers had nearly doubled, and they more than doubled again by 2005. Most recent figures show that the Palestinian population of Israel, Gaza, and the West Bank has increased by more than fivefold since independence and the flight of the famous refugees—hardly evidence of some ruthless program of ethnic cleansing.

Unfortunately, anti-Israel propagandists choose to ignore these facts and to distort history with misleading and manipulative language. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas recently wrote in The New York Times about the 1947 U.N. vote to partition the British Mandate into two states, one Israeli and one Palestinian. “Minutes after the State of Israel was established on May 14, 1948,” he notes, “the United States granted it recognition. Our Palestinian state, however, remains a promise unfulfilled.”

He neglects to mention that the Palestinian leaders themselves (led by the grand mufti of Jerusalem, a close Hitler ally during the war) rejected the U.N. partition and made no effort to set up a Palestinian state, either before or after the War of Independence. Between 1949 and 1967, Arabs (the Egyptians and Jordanians) controlled every inch of territory that Abbas now seeks for his new state—all of the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem. They could have established a Palestinian homeland at any point during those 18 years and, incidentally, continued denying Jews any access to their holy sites. With scant protest from Palestinians, the Arab states made no effort to “fulfill the promise” because they concentrated all their attention and effort on destroying Israel rather than building Palestine. They cared far more about expelling Jews than they did about re-settling Palestinians.

Go read the rest, and spread it around. stop the lies about Israel and “Palestine”. The fact is that Palestinians want to destroy Israel far more than they want peace with Da JOOOOS!

The Left’s childish obsession with “fairness”

If you follow politics at all you have noticed, no doubt, that Liberals are fixated on fairness. They argue for higher tax rates on higher income Americans because that satisfies their definition of fairness. Their fixation on racial “diversity” is also partly based on that word fairness. Their opposition to many, or sometimes all facets of Capitalism is also based on fairness. Their fixation on giving government the power to create “equality” is also largely based on fairness. For a Liberal, the idea that some have more money, or better housing, or are more successful is unfair, and therefore the government should do its best to eliminate that unfairness.

As I have watched Liberalism, and its more depraved ideological cousin Leftism over the years, I have noted the immaturity of many who buy into the folly of those twisted ideologies. I have said before that Liberalism is an ideology for the childish, and Liberals fixation on fairness is a great example of the truth of my position. Sometimes if you look closely at a Liberal arguing for the rich to pay higher taxes, you can see a small child, their tear-stained face contorted, as the they yell “that is not fair”. 

The past week or so, watching Israel defend itself against the terrorist barbarians of Hamas, I have noticed that “fairness” seems to be at the center of Liberal anger at Israel for defending itself. The argument from many Liberals goes like this. Israel is much stronger than Hamas militarily. Their weapons, their training, the fighting skills are so much better than those that Hamas’s are, so this fight is unfair. I have heard different versions of this idiotic mantra and they all are based on emotion rather than reason. I would love to talk to one of these fools, just once and ask this question. Have you, Mr. or Ms. Liberal, ever thought that maybe Hamas should stop picking a fight with Israel? I can only imagine what their response would be. But I would love to watch them actually have to think about that for a few seconds before they retreated back to the walls of their Liberal fantasy world where fairness is ordained by the United Nations and enforced by rainbow-colored unicorns that make everyone get along by passing out cotton candy.

 

Video- Anti-Israel protesters asked if Israel has a right to self-defense?

Via The Right Scoop

A mixture of ignorant fools who have no clue about what is really going on over there. These people have swallowed the Kool-Aid Hamas sells. Israel blocks no legitimate aid to Gaza, only weapons that they know will be used against Israel for example. And a mix of pro-terrorist scum as well. The most fascinating thing I keep hearing is that the fight is unfair because Israel has far better weapons or because the rockets Hamas fires are not really dangerous. I would like to ask these people if they would be OK with Israel defending itself if it used the same weapons as Hamas does. Their heads might explode if they actually had to think about that one.

 

Before I go watch football, here is some much needed wisdom from Dennis Prager

Dennis Pragr is a wise man, and a national treasure. Here he sums up what I call the moral retardation that infects the Left

This war is as morally clear as wars get. Hamas is a terrorist organization dedicated to annihilating the Jewish state. It runs a theocratic totalitarian state in Gaza, with no individual liberty, and no freedom of speech or press. In a nutshell, Hamas is a violent, fascistic organization.

Israel, meanwhile, is one the world’s most humane states — not to mention a democracy that is so tolerant that Arab members of its parliament are free to express admiration for Hamas.

Over the past decade, Hamas had launched thousands of rockets into Israel with one aim: to kill and maim as many Israeli citizens as possible — Israelis at work, at play, asleep in their homes, in their cars. Finally, Israel responded by killing Ahmed al-Jabari, the chief organizer of Hamas’s violence — the Hamas “military commander” as he was known among Palestinians.

The next day, three more Israelis were killed by rockets.

Then Hamas targeted Tel Aviv, Israel’s most densely populated region, and Israel shelled Hamas rocket-launching sites.

In other words, an evil entity made war on a peaceful, decent entity, and the latter responded.

How has the New York Times reported this?

On Friday, on its front page, the Times featured two three-column-wide photos. The top one was of Gaza Muslim mourners alongside the dead body of al-Jabari. The photo below was of Israeli Jews mourning alongside the dead body of Mira Scharf, a 27-year-old mother of three.

What a shocker! Rachel Maddow forgets what started current Israel/Hama war

Via News Busters!

MADDOW (after referring to President Obama’s visit to Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar):  And of course the whole trip to Asia comes in the midst of a very scary flareup between Israel and Gaza. Now, we do not know exactly what started this most recent round of fighting, but we do know that an Israeli air strike killed the top commander of Hamas in Gaza on Wednesday. And we know then that that was followed by rocket attacks aimed at southern Israel and then Tel Aviv and then today, Jerusalem. Israel has been pounding Gaza with air strikes. The attacks appeared today to be rapidly escalating, including signs that Israel is preparing for a ground incursion into Gaza. The New York Times tonight citing reports of Israeli tanks massing on the border with Gaza.

Gee, if only Israel hadn’t inexplicably killed that poor misunderstood Hamas commander. Conspicuously absent from Maddow’s narrative is any mention of Israel’s rationale for the attack — Hamas targeting Israel with hundreds of rocket attacks from Gaza, as they’ve been doing every year for the last decade. Indiscriminate savagery that does not distinguish between military and civilian targets, in marked contrast to Israel’s response, which was to kill one of Hamas’s leading terrorists.

Remember this, Maddow is NOT stupid, she knows as well as anyone about those rockets fired at Israel necessitated Israel’s defending itself. She KNOWS! Yet, she chooses to spread terrorist propaganda? What would that make Maddow?

 

Why can’t the media figure simple truths out?

And by simple truths, I mean SIMPLE, like, terrorists who butcher innocents will also lie! Stacy McCaon states what ought to be obvious to anyone with half a clue

If they are willing to fire missiles randomly at innocent people, why would anyone expect the murderous thugs of Hamas to be scrupulously honest? Having figured out that victimhood is the measure of righteousness in the eyes of Western liberals, the terrorist regime in Gaza is busy exploiting this propaganda angle with the assistance of useful idiots in the media, as Melanie Phillips reports:

Last Friday, a number of papers along with outlets such as CNN in the US published prominent footage of the Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Kanil weeping over the body cradled in his arms of a dead child, Mahmoud Sadallah, who Hamas claimed had been killed in an Israeli air strike. Blogger Elder of Zyon smelled a rat and, piecing together convincing circumstantial evidence, had concluded by this morning that the child was almost certainly not killed by an Israeli strike – not least because on Friday morning when the child died the Israelis had paused their bombing missions to allow for cease-fire talks in Gaza to proceed — but by a Hamas missile that was fired at Israel but had fallen short in Gaza. Now experts from the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights who visited the site on Saturday have said they believe that the explosion that killed Mahmoud Sadallah was indeed caused by a Palestinian rocket.

The Pallywood crowd is now infamous for staging deaths, especially of children, yet, the media refuses to catch on, maybe because they prefer sob stories to the truth? Surely CNN and others could explore a bit and find the truth. Here is more from PJ Media

The truth about this incident reveals a horrifying aspect of Hamas’s conduct of which I daresay even most relatively informed followers of the news aren’t aware, as explained by Richard Landes at PJ Media:

 … the head of Hamas, whose boys systematically fire from the midst of civilians — in order to create civilian casualties they can then blame on Israeli counter-strikes — exploiting a death directly caused by his men, in order to appeal to western sympathy. It would be hard to imagine a more stunning portrait of the most depraved hypocrisy (and contempt for viewers who believe this display of compassion).… It is hard to imagine a more grotesque expression of a mutual corruption: trying to demonize your enemy before an outside audience whom you expect to side with you in the name of empathy for the very children you victimize. How disordered the emotional and moral world of the masterminds of this kind of manipulation must be.

… In other words, Hamas engages in the exceptionally rare wartime act of actively victimizing one’s own civilian population –specifically a war crime – in order to win a victory in cognitive war.

And they can only do so if a corrupt media on the scene (including NGOs and UN agencies), rather than expose their criminal strategies, play along and present the images of dead babies in the framework of the Palestinian narrative of Israeli victimization.

 

 

Bloggers Spot More Dead Child Fakery By Hamas; CNN Fooled

Bloggers Spot More Dead Child Fakery By Hamas; CNN Fooled – Big Peace

Hamas has once again apparently been caught faking an image of a dead Palestinian child–this time using a child likely killed by its own rocket fire and claiming that an Israeli attack was responsible. CNN’s Sara Sidner ran a full report on the child’s death, strongly implying that an Israeli bomb had been responsible.

……..

The dead child was paraded before the cameras during the visit of Egyptian prime minister Hisham Kandil, who kissed the dead child in the presence of Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh. But even the New York Times was suspicious.

Bloggers such as Elder of Ziyon quickly pieced together the evidence of Hamas fakery:

The IDF did not launch any airstrikes in Gaza while Egyptian PM Kandil was in Gaza…

If it was an Israeli missile, you can be sure that it would have been shown to the media! Furthermore, PCHR, which is keeping track of everyone killed in Gaza (and which admits that most of the dead have been “militants,”) did not list Mahmoud Sadallah or Aiman Aby Wardah in their list of victims of Israeli airstrikes, although they even include one person who died of a heart attack.

Put this together with the fact that Hamas and other terror groups were firing rockets throughout Friday morning while the IDF did not, plus the fact that over 100 rockets have fallen short in Gaza (both using past performance and IDF statistics as proof), and the fact that the shrapnel in the video matches almost exactly the shrapnel damage we have seen from rocket fire into Israel, and it is very clear: this child was killed by Gaza rocket fire, not by Israel.

Hamas has a well-established pattern of faking civilian deaths in Gaza, even as it seeks civilian deaths in Israel (and fakes that, too, pretending it is firing at military targets). Last week, Breitbart News caught Hamas using a month-old photo of a dead Syrian boy and claiming he had been killed by Israel – a double irony, since the Assad regime that killed the boy hosted Hamas for years before the outbreak of the Syrian civil war.

The international community has reinforced Hamas’s pattern of fakery by applying a double standard to Palestinian civilians killed by Israel and Palestinian civilians killed by Hamas. When Israeli artillery inadvertently killed civilians in Beit Hanoun in 2006, the world sprang into action with accusations of “war crime”; when errant Palestinian rockets have struck civilians in Beit Hanoun, the world has said nothing at all.

Not every civilian death in Gaza is faked, of course. But almost every civilian death can be attributed to Hamas, which deliberately fires rockets from civilian areas and hides its weapons caches in mosques and homes. Since Operation Cast Lead in 2008-9, Hamas has smuggled in more rockets that endanger the local Palestinian populace, and whose only purpose is to target Israeli civilians. Hamas bears the moral burden of this war.

Update: According to the office of Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, 60 of the 703 rockets fired by Hamas and other terror groups since the start of the conflict have fallen on Palestinian civilians. The Israel Defense Force says that 99 rockets in total that were fired at Israel have hit Gaza itself in four days of conflict.

Update 2: Several sources now report that the child was, in fact, killed by a Hamas rocket, not Israel. Those sources include the Palestinian Center for Human Rights. Will CNN issue a correction to its earlier false report?

IDF hits home of Hamas chief rocket launcher

When will these sub-humans learn not to mess with Israel?

The IAF hit the home of Ihya Abia, Hamas’s chief rocket launching unit on Sunday. Abia, a senior Hamas official was killed. He was responsible for the majority of rockets fired at Israel in the past days. 

Another dead scumbag!

Israel continues to take out the trash in Gaza, terrorist ass-kissing Hitler fan club outrageously outraged!

Israel is defending itself, and good for them! Frankly, I hope that if they do commit ground troops, they do not STOP until they eradicate the Hamas vermin. But, of course, the Left is going Berzerk on Twitter. Twitchy has the Tweets of outrage from anti-Semites, fools, and losers who are calling for death to Jews. Go read them all, you will be angry, and disgusted, but is important to understand what type of fanatics we are dealing with here. This is just one example

More than 12,000 rockets hit Israel in the past 12 years. RT if you think  has the right to defend itself. pic.twitter.com/JfQKshes

I dare yall bitches to do that to Iran you zionist devils hitler should have killed you all @IDFSpokesperson

Hate to break it to you there Darth Douchebag, but Iran wants no part of Israel, and neither does Egypt, whose “leaders” are hinting at protecting those poor terrorists in Gaza. More at The Other McCain

Remember: This started last week when Hamas fired more than 100 missiles into Israel. To call Israel’s response an “act of aggression by the Israelis” is simply a lie, the exact opposite of truth. Why does the New York Times feel obligated to publish Iran’s lies? I dunno.

The Iran-backed Jew-haters in Hamas are supported by freelance Jew-haters on Twitter — with warm approval from “Anonymous,” of course — and you have to ask yourself why Twitter permits this:

Hamas Leader learns what happens when you screw with Israel! Update! Muslim Brotherhood threatens Israel

The Other McCain notes that Tweeting can be dangerous

But mainly, yeah, it was the air strike:

Hamas has said that Israeli air strike in Gaza which killed Ahmed Jabari, the head of its military wing, “has opened the gates of hell” . . .
Jabari, who is the most senior Hamas official to be killed since an Israeli invasion of Gaza four years ago, was killed in an air strike on a vehicle, in a dramatic resumption of Israel’s policy of assassinating Palestinian militant leaders.
Jabari has long topped Israel’s most-wanted list, the Associated Press reported, and was blamed for in a string of attacks, including the kidnapping of Israeli soldier Gilad Schalit in 2006.
His son was also reportedly killed in the targeted air strike, according to Osama Hamdan, a Hamas representative in Lebanon . . .

The IDF video of Jabari being turned into bacon bits is uplifting!

Donald Douglas has more, apparently Israel is getting ready to take out some trash

IDF Spokesman Brig.-Gen. Yoav Mordechai confirmed that the strike was “part of our goal, to land serious blows on Hamas and other organizations. Jabari is the first target… We’ve only just started, and this isn’t the end of it. All of the options are open, and we will persist in our determination to continue to hit all of the [terror] organizations further down the line.”

Mordechai said that the IDF was prepping its ground troops for a possible incursion into the Gaza Strip, but noted that such an operation was not necessarily going to happen, and that the IDF didn’t want to turn Operation Pillar of Defense into a second Cast Lead — the winter 2008-9 assault on Hamas in Gaza that did include extensive ground operations.

TCOB Israel!

The Muslim Brotherhood, of course, is outraged that Israel would defend itself

The Daily Star reported:

Egypt’s Islamist Freedom and Justice Party, formerly headed by President Mohamed Morsi, said on Wednesday Egypt would no longer stand by as Israel attacked Palestinians after air strikes killed a Hamas leader.

The FJP, the political arm of the powerful Muslim Brotherhood movement, said Israeli air strikes that killed top militant Ahmed al-Jaabari in Gaza earlier on Wednesday required “swift Arab and international action to stop the massacres.”

The party, which fielded Morsi in a June election to replace toppled president Hosni Mubarak, said Israel “must take into account the changes in the Arab region and especially Egypt.”

Egypt “will not allow the Palestinians to be subjected to Israeli aggression, as in the past,” the party statement said.

Mubarak, overthrown in early 2011, was criticised by his opponents for his response to an Israeli invasion of Gaza in 2008-2009 following rocket fire by Palestinian militan

Two things here. First Israel is not going to be cowed by these terrorists, Israel can handle anything Egypt has militarily. Second, Egypt’s new leaders feel emboldened no doubt by the re-election of Obama, who has shown he is not Israel’s friend. Elections do have consequences, and this is one of those.

Someone asked me the other day why I love to see terrorists killed

I answered that dead terrorists are a good thing, it makes the world a better place frankly. I do not think this person grasped my feelings. For me it is simple, terrorists are evil. Yes, evil IS real, it does not matter if you believe in God or not, evil exists. Child molesters are evil. Rapists, serial killers, they are EVIL. Stalin? Mao? Hitler? Che? Pol Pot? EVIL! And yes, terrorists are EVIL! Show me the button to press to eradicate Hamas, Hezbollah, the  Taliban and I will jump up and down on it! And if you do not grasp why I feel that way, then read this!

Live Leak – More than than 4000 people from police and teachers to monks and children have been killed in the past 7 years by Muslims in southern Thailand, but hardly a word in the mainstream media. In Southern Thailand Muslim gunmen continue killing and threatening innocent citizens. The Muslim insurgents have threatened to kill 20 teachers and have distributed fliers that said, “WANTED: 20 Deaths of Buddhist teachers.” Muslim terrorists object to the education system which teaches Buddhist culture that is not acceptable in Islam. The attacks are intended to force Buddhists to leave the region because Muslims want to create an independent Muslim nation in the three southern provinces.

In 2000, I went on a cruise, and one of the bartenders was a beautiful girl from Indonesia. Not surprisingly, I spent quite a bit of time at her bar. We talked a lot, and I asked her about Indonesia, and if she missed it. I will never forget her answer. She told me that her country was beautiful, filled with wonderful people, but, that she would never return. You see, Indonesia had been ruined for her, by Muslims. It was not safe anymore, it was not home anymore. Radical Islam had ruined it, so, this young woman and her husband, yeah, all the pretty Asian girls are taken I guess, had their homeland stolen, by a twisted, perverse radicalism disguised as a religion. I think of that pretty girl often, and I try to imagine what it would be like to lose my country, to lose my liberty that God blessed me, and all of us with, and I shudder. That will never happen, because I will never yield my liberties. To do so would be an insult to God, and to those who founded this nation. You see Patrick Henry had it right. And as long as enough of us hold his words to our hearts, we will not lose our liberty!

Security? Or an exercise in PC?

Chris Wysocki looks at TSA, airport security, and political correctness. But mostly political correctness

Excuse me, is that a bomb in your burqa? Please proceed directly to your gate.

According to Judicial Watch, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napalitano is actually considering waving airport pat downs for Muslim women who consider them offensive.

We mustn’t offend the Muslims!

The demand came last week from the politically-connected Muslim rights organization that serves as the U.S. front for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas. Calling the searches “invasive” and “humiliating,” the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) advises Muslim women wearing religious head covers known as hijabs to reject full-body checks before boarding planes.

Those who are selected for the secondary screenings should remind Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officers that they are only supposed to pat down the head and neck and that they should not subject Muslim women to a full-body or partial body pat-down, according to CAIR’s advisory.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is actually considering exempting Muslims as per CAIR’s demands. Madame Secretary confirmed this week that there will be “adjustments” and “more to come” on the issue of Muslim women in hijabs undergoing airport security pat-downs.

Aha. CAIR is dirty, and certainly does not have America’s best interest at heart. So, why would Janet Napolitano ever consider caving to this group? Well because, Napolitano is dumber than a tree stump for one thing. Recall she said our border with Mexico is more secure now than ever before. And she sees people like Chris, and myself as more dangerous that the terrorists CAIR supports behind the scenes. Oh, and of course as Ed pointed a couple of days ago, and as Chris notes, we all know that those darned wheel-chair bound toddlers are the real menace

But toddlers in wheelchairs? TSA makes them do the Full Monty, right out in the open. Because when it comes to hijacking planes, everyone knows just how dangerous those toddlers really are.

What a sick joke! What a sad state! Is there no common sense at all anymore? Or has it been sacrificed on the altar of Political Correctness?

 

Ya know, I completely forgot to share my thoughts on the passing of……….

That rotten waste of human skin, Kim Jong Il. But, I suppose I should say something right? Maybe YA-FREAKING-HOO sums it up best! Now, if only Castro, and Chavez and the leaders of Hamas, and Hezbollah will follow suit, I will really be doing the Happy Dance

Why is anti-Israeli hate the new fad on campus?

A completely disgusting display of hatred, bigotry, and, frankly, decidedly pro-terrorist sentiments! And it is taking place all across America! Video via An Old Broad

Again, the “tolerant Left” is leading the charge of hatred, and fomenting and EXCUSING violence and terrorism! Moral retardation in it’s most disturbing form. What else can you say about people who carry banners saying PEACE at rallies where attacks on Israeli civilians are excused? Note what the woman who David Horowitz  questions at the 4:55 mark of the video. She APPROVES of hunting down Jews, as the leader of Hezbollah has called for.

These students are evil, some, maybe most, are likely too stupid and misinformed to even realize they are supporting terrorism, but, make no mistake, many of them KNOW FULL WELL what they are supporting. Hamas, and Hezbollah can attack Israel on a daily basis, and these cretins say nothing, or, even go so far as to justify these acts of barbarism. But if Israel dares defend itself, they launch into outrage mode, screeching about human rights.

As I said, these miscreants are EVIL! They are the same fools who speak about Social Justice, and shout “Power to the People”, yet they support nations that oppress women over truly free countries where women actually are free. They are the same people who loathe our military, and regularly spit on this nation while USING the liberty our military defends, and that our nation protects!

This is what comes from negotiating with terrorists

Israel should have known better than to play the swap hostages game with Hamas.

(Ynet) — Saudi cleric Dr. Awad al-Qarni is offering a $100,000 reward to anyone who kidnaps Israeli soldiers. He is responding to an ad published by the Libman family offering a similar reward for anyone who catches the person who murdered their relative Shlomo Libman.

Libman was killed by terrorists near the settlement of Yitzhar in 1998.

“The press reported that the Zionist settlers will pay huge amounts of money to whoever kills the freed Palestinian prisoners,” al-Qarni said. “In response to these criminals I declare to the world that any Palestinian who will jail an Israeli soldier and exchange him for prisoners will be rewarded with a $100,000 prize,” he wrote on his Facebook page.

There is simply no good, none that comes from negotiating with terrorists, there is no appeasing them, no reasoning with them, no placating them. Either you kill them, or, they will kill you.

Moral Retards march to U.N. protesting Israel

Via Gateway Pundit. The Left amazes me everyday. They claim moral superiority. They claim to support freedom, and equality, and speak often of social justice. Yet, they are always protesting against nations that actually honor freedom and equality.

Hundreds of pro-Islamist leftists marched against Israel in New York City on Thursday. They concluded their march at the United Nations.

They want to force Israel to accept millions of Palestinians. (Courtney)

Let’s face it… Some people are really stupid.

Pro-Palestinian queers demanded that Israel end its “apartheid” policies. Of course, these same queers would last about two minutes in Gaza before Hamas hacked their heads off. (Courtney)

More pics at the link. But focus on the Gay activists damning what they call Israeli apartheid. Are they so ignorant as to not know how Homosexuals are treated in Islamic nations? Do they have any clue what apartheid actually is? Apparently not. They are what the Soviets called “useful idiots”. Useful idiots, as in the Soviets could make use of their incredible stupidity to help spread the Communist agenda, until,of course, they ceased being useful. Then, they were done away with by the Communists. And yes, the Islamists would be just as quick to do in these useful idiots as the Communists were.
