US State Dept condemns killing of Israeli teens, urges restraint
Jerusalem Post ^ | 6-30-14

Posted on 06/30/2014 1:38:49 PM PDT by SJackson

The US State Department condemned the killing of the three kidnapped Israeli teens following the discovery of their bodies Monday night.

"The harm that has been done to these teenagers is a tragedy," said State Dept. spokeswoman Jen Psaki at a press briefing.

Psaki said the department continued to urge restraint on both sides "in spite of the tragedy and the enormous pain on the ground as a result."

I’m urging restraint, too; The IDF need to keep their groupings nice and tight.

Why do Israelis have to be the “restrained ones”

I am tired of this.

A cold and callous thing to say. I hope that she loses some one near and dear to her in the same exact way. Let’s see if she calls for ‘restraint’.

It’s an ATROCITY, not a “tragedy”. Maybe our State Dept could urge the terrorists to restrain themselves from murdering any more Jews.

Yes Psaki, we must kiss some Arab ass..meanwhile, when Congress does something the left hates the left refuses to “Negotiate” but hey, these Arab scum kill five boys who were walking home, but Psaki calls that “Harm.” Id like to see how she would feel if a relative of hers received that same “Harm” the only way to get rid of Arab schmucks is to nuke them, because these cockroaches will NEVER want peace, all they want is every jew dead

The only restraint they should show is not using tactical nukes.

Why is our haphazard, totally ineffective, communist controlled government, State Department involved in anything that means NOTHING to us? Let Isreal get their revenge and the people of the US (not the illegals, terrorists, or Muzzies) say “Huh”?

I thought the same thing.. Psaki wants the LIV's to think Hamas didn't ACTUALLY KILL these teens. "Harm" downplays what Hamas did.. SHAME ON PSAKI's saving face for the Islamists.

That cowardly excuse of a State Dept. spokesman needs to lose her job immediately!

Restraint? Bomb the livin’ crap out of ‘em, I say. Cut off electricity and water for a week. And then extend any border boundaries a couple of hundred yards.

Restraint.

Three young lives snuffed out callously, without purpose or reason, one an American and the State Dept. urges “restraint.’

Kerry is an A-hole and Obama is a traitor and enemy of America.

So does the State Department urge restraint against Hamas? Israel will restrain itself when Hamas is eliminated.

You can add them up over the years of how many Israelis have been shot or blown up by Arab terrorists namely Hamas.

This was an atrocity which was in part paid for by the
US State Dept which supports terrorism, and even
has a statue to a terrorist who murdered a
handicapped American.

This atrocity was against a US citizen and the
US State Dept did NOTHING but celebrate. SSDD.

From Dwight Eisenhower to Condi Rice, from Jimmy Carter to Madeline Albright, American leaders have told Israel many times to show restraint.

America needs leadership that will never tell Israel to show restraint and that has not come from the D’s or the R’s.

I am tired of it too. It’s time to remove the gloves, pull up our sleeves and get our hands dirty (not in a corrupt way either). These people only know one thing, the exertion of undeniable force. We cannot continue on being politically correct to appease the enemy when the enemy could careless about that pc mentality and actually sees it as a sign of weakness. While some degree of modicum is called for after the deed has been done, it should not be presented before. We have continuously shown ourselves to be the fodder of those who claim we must do it for the children. These ingrates have shown they use children against us and then turn around use them as tools to kill us. While the children may be our future, they need to be removed from the political equation when it comes to war. In WWII it was common place for the enemy to hide in bell towers because those were usually the highest point. Now they hide in mosques because they know we won’t attack the mosque. We need to change this perception. We need to purport the perception, we will go where ever they hide and no place will ever shield them from overwhelming force. Remove the shackles that bind us and the world will become a much safer place.

This is a classic "What difference, at this point, does it make?" response from a weak State Department.

Don't go in when their fate is uncertain because you don't have all the facts, and don't go in when you find that they're dead, because their dead so what difference would it make now?

Time for restraint is coming to an end. The all out total world war between muslim’ and civilization is coming.. In reality they are already at war with civilization. Hardly a corner of this planet does not see them murdering Christians, Jews and other civilized peoples. It is just we all have not accept that reality yet but they will eventually force that on us all..........

Israel has shown tremendous restraint in times past.
I think they are about to say “screw the US” and do what they have to do.

As for Kerry, he is a sock puppet for the muslim in chief.
Bet he doesn’t even know what he is saying when he says it.

I urge the State Department to exercise restrain and STFU. Yeah, Lurch, Condi. That means you. Let all parties calling for restraint exercise restraint so that we can stomp the people who did it, rather than be tempted to stuff a sock down their throats for repeating that hypocritical mantra one too many times.

I like the double standards when the terrorists killed 3,000 Americans we sent an army half way around the world to punish them and those that gave them aid and rightly so. But now terrorists abduct and kill Israeli teenagers and Israel has to show restraint?
