US Asks Israel to 'Show Restraint in Response'
Arutz Sheva ^ | 8/7/14 | Moshe Cohen

Posted on 07/07/2014 4:03:18 PM PDT by Eleutheria5

The United States on Monday night condemned the rocket fire by Hamas against Israel. Secretary of State John Kerry spoke to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Monday night in the wake of the heavy rocket fire on Israel. Kerry asked Netanyahu to “act with restraint” in his response to Hamas' pounding of southern Israel.

With that, State Department spokesperson Jean Psaki said that the US supported Israel's right to defend itself. “We condemn the firing of missiles at Israel and support Israel's right to defend itself.” Kerry, she said, had spoken to Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and asked both to work towards preventing a further flare-up in tensions.

Obama is worried that some of his personal friends could get killed.

Act with restraint? Say, what a novel idea. Why didn’t anyone else think of that? Palestinians will see it and probably want to act with restraint as well.

That was quick, compared to the response to those Israeli teens kidnapped and ultimately murdered. And how can anyone take John Kerry seriously as our sec’y of state? The same Kerry who designated Peter Yarrow, of Peter Paul and Mary fame his daughter’s godfather. The same Peter Yarrow who got himself in trouble when he got a 13-yr-old groupie high on pot and, seduced her to, shall we say, puff on his “magic dragon”. He used terrible judgement then, how do we know he’s of sound mind to make such important decisions concerning foreign policy? Maybe it’s a minor point, but oftentimes little things mean a lot.

Did he ask the demented savages in Gaza to show restraint after they launched over 100 rockets into Israel today?

I, in turn, ask Israel to convert the slimy b*stards into heat.

The good Old Testament treatment is only too god for their breed of slime.

Obama is worried some of his Hamas buddies might get hurt..meanwhile, I’d like to see how Obama would react if 100 rockets were thrown at the White House daily..let’s see how long it would take him to poop himself

Now just a cotton pickin’ minit here. Let’s be fair. Peter Yarrow is a famous singer. He can molest all the 13-year-old chicks he wants, or boys, too, for that matter. Next you’re going to say Roman Polanski isn’t allowed the occasional drugged kid in the hot tub. What is the world coming to? Is nothing sacred anymore? Now you leave those famous people alone.

So while Israel is pounded by Hamas our cowardly regime is telling them to restrain? I bet if 0bama and Kerry were in office when the Japs bombed Pearl Harbor they would restrain our military from retaliating. Yep.

I am puzzled by all this...

Everyone in the Arab world already hates Israel. Why don’t they just bomb Gaza further back into the stone age?

And then dare the next country to stick their head up...

Who is left for them to pi$$ off?

The only way to enjoy any genuine peace is to kill those seeking to murder you. Any other policy only enables the islamonazis.

Israel is acting with intelligence and common sense - something missing in the U.S. policy since the Obamanation.

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas sent a message to Hamas: “Dear peaceloving brothers of Islam, the honorable Secretary Kerry has requested we show restraint towards the Israelis. So, tonight I ask you to only fire 19 missiles at Israel instead of 20. Senator Kerry will then report to his King Obama that his mission is accomplished.

The US is partners with Hamas
and with al Qaeda.
The US Congress EAGERLY sends weapons and money to both.

This cannot possibly end well.

Yes. Restraint is definitely required by the situation. All the Moslem whould be restrained, that is chained, tied up, handcuffed, etc., and pushed into Syria and Jordan or the Mediterranean.

Considering this president, even if we had rockets slamming into our country, I venture to say Obama wouldn’t care and would certainly do nothing about it.

Not all of the US. Just the blacks, liberal Jews, Latinos, city folk and fags. The rest of us are ready. So ready to bring it on.

Why, that little trollop should have been grateful for the privilege of pleasuring his Lordship, and having him there to guide her from virginity to technical virginity, as well as showing her how to inhale a joint. Did he not offer her sufficient hush money? Did he not have goons threaten her family but not actually do anything to them? Such ingratitude.
