FALFURRIAS, Texas—Two Americans were killed in the Israeli war against Hamas on Saturday. One of the men was a Texan with dual U.S.-Israeli citizenship. The two were killed when an APC they were riding in was struck by a Hamas anti-tank weapon.

The Texan was identified as Sean Carmeli, according to an article on the website JPUPDATES. The other American was identified Max Steinberg.

The identities of the men were confirmed by a government official who spoke to Breitbart Texas on condition of anonymity.

Carmeli was from the town of South Padre, Texas, according to his Facebook page. He attended Saint Joseph Academy, a private high school located north of the city of Brownsville, Texas. He was currently living in Ra'anana, Israel.

Anything Obama gave to the terrorist Moslem Brotherhood, Obama gave to Hamas.

Back in 2012 there were stories about American (or American provided) weapons from Libya being intercepted in Egypt on their way to Gaza. They obviously aren’t going to catch them all.

Is always necessary to remember our ‘flexible’ one is one and only one of the guilty. Thank You for the reminder.

The brave men who gave all deserve better than to have their names on the same thread with that nothing.

Obama thinks we are so stupid as to believe that when you give weapons to one terrorists group (the Syrian rebels) that you aren’t giving them to Hamas.

I would add that the weapons were also used by Hamas to kill Egyptian soldiers.

Are you intimating this anti-tank weaponry came to Hamas directly from the U.S. via a Benghazi-type operation?

Just that considering all the variables in today’s world, I would be more willing to fight and die for Israel and Netanyahu than America and you know who. I’m sorry to feel that way, but I do.

There was a report a few weeks ago where Obama was providing the Syrian rebels with anti-tank weapons. There is little doubt that they would send some to Hamas.

I don’t think they’d mind as something tells me they won’t be spending eternity together anyway. Not unless Obama embraces some real change.

Code Pink and other leftist orgs and Islamic “charities” are sending them funds to buy weapons I bet.

Obama is already arming the Syrian rebels who are helped by Hamas.

Of course it would be Iran; with American money donated by the Obastard administration.

No need to apologize. Lately I have been wondering if I am supposed to be in Israel also.
