Who is “Obama”? Is this “Obama” a person whose phone calls should be answered? Whose side is he on? Should we even care whether or not he is even calling? Is he trying to make peace? Does he care more for the mooslims than the Jews? Does stopping the fighting favor the mooslims?

These are questions that need to be answered.

If Hamas doesn’t agree to a cease fire soon, there will be no Hamas left to agree to a cease fire - oh, that would be good, never mind.

Israel should just break down and offer Hamas’ and other terrorist leaders a limited time only Gazan travel package that guarantees to include an introduction to 72 virgins.

Some of the terrorist leaders will be suspicious, but I’m thinking it couldn’t hoit to give it a try.

If it was a direct hit,then the birds got to eat most of him.They can fly over the funeral and drop him on the crowd.

It’s likely that Israel has several agents that are members of Hamas.... dangerous duty for certain.

Islamic Jihad sent a text message with the bad news to the media.

And it’s tough to type on those phone keypads when one eye and both hands are all bandage-y.

Thanks Nachum.

Did you see the dog wagging it’s tail in the upper left corner? He knows those worthless sobs are about to die and is happy.

That ABC nitwit Marquard broadcasting from Gaza City and trying to garner sympathy for the 100 Arabs who were killed, including the "innocent children" (actually human shields for the terrorists), is very fortunate that the Israelis haven't gotten him!

Every time that open conflict breaks out between Israel and the jihadis, we have MSM jerks like him doing propaganda for the enemies of western civilization.

Some of the media should be brought closer to the action.

If you don't mind me asking what is your Ping list you have there?

Does it have something to do with Israel.

If it does could you please add me, my Parents live in Israel and I get most of my news from FR.

Thank You So Much!

They hope to use the same formula as during Cast Lead and Lebanon II. Hopefully, the government is not that stupid as to let them unchallenged.
