Posted on 07/21/2014 2:03:41 PM PDT by PoloSec
Barack Obama is trying his best to stand in between Israel and the destruction of one of the worlds most dangerous terrorist organizations.
The president has made it clear since the conflict in Gaza began heating up a few weeks ago, that his support of Israel begins and ends at the podium, as his actions outside of his famously scripted and egocentric speeches demonstrates a hidden hostility toward the Israelis.
President Obama warned Israeli leaders to use restraint in dealing with terrorists who were bombing their country, doing untold amounts of damage and putting peoples lives in danger.
After a peace agreement was rejected by Hamas, Israel decided it was time to move in ground forces to take out underground tunnel networks being used to conceal rockets and other weapons, despite Obama warning them not to do it.
Now the president is asking the Israeli government to take things down a few notches and keep fighting so hard.
via Daily Caller:
President Barack Obama stepped up his efforts Sunday to limit Israels gradual destruction of Hamas tunnel network in the Shejaiya neighborhood of Gaza, which now conceals many of the rockets and jihadi units that attack Israelis.
In a morning call to Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Obama reaffirmed Israels right to defend itself [but] also raised serious concern about the growing number of casualties, including increasing Palestinian civilian deaths in Gaza and the loss of Israeli soldiers, said a 2.00 p.m. statement from the White House.
Israels government did not officially respond to Obamas statement, which came after Israel ground units moved into Gaza to find the tunnels. The Gaza area is controlled by Hamas green-waving jihadis, whose mission is to destroy Israel because it is not controlled by Muslims.
The warring parties should comply with the 2012 ceasefire signed by Hamas, Israel and Egypts government, said the White House statement.
Secretary of State John Kerry will soon travel to Cairo to seek an immediate cessation of hostilities based on a return to the November 2012 ceasefire agreement, the statement said.
Something that President Obama just doesnt seem to understand about dealing with bullies like Hamas is that they dont care about peace. These individuals are terrorists bent on the complete destruction of an entire race of people, along with dominating the world and ruling it under the flag of Islam.
Terrorists dont do negotiations. They only understand power and force, meaning that Israels actions are an appropriate response to these vicious radicals. America should be doing as much as possible to support Israel and give them the breathing room they need to take out Hamas. In all honesty, they would be doing the world a favor.
Please share this article on Facebook and Twitter if you support Israel and their ground operations to eradicate Hamas and protect their country.
Here, UN rockets attack children in Tel Aviv 7/16, as planned.
Israel IS showing restraint - they aren’t napalming or nuking Gaza and other cities and big towns full of Paleoswinians.
All BiBi needs to do is to say, “yes, yes, yes” to Fagbama, and continue to fight & destroy Hamas. Much can be accomplished in only a few days. Besides, if Hamas does succeed in some kidnapping/mass murder operation, all bets are off. I hope and pray that such doesn’t happen, but long term it might be best for Israel and its people if Hamas is reall taken down a few notches or destroyed.
So Obama wants Israel to play ‘patty’-cake, patty-cake, baker’s mam’, with Hamas.
Benjamin Netanyahu gave the them time to leave and those civilians knew what was coming.
Maybe someday, a nation will bomb a lot of oil facilities in the Middle East and put a stop to global political interests dishonestly using Israel as a distraction.
You’re right. Just say ‘yes’, ‘sure thing, barry’, etc., then continue doing what needs to be done.
People who are following this situation need to understand the following. This is real important and why Israel is working with Egypt, instead of the USA.
Its not on Israel, this time! Kerry is going to have to deal with EGYPT and they are not friendly to those who tried to get the Muslim Brotherhood in there to take over Egypt. Obama and Kerrys goose is COOKED for that reason - with Egypt!
Arab rifts may complicate search for Gaza truce [Israel and Hamas]
DOHA/CAIRO (Reuters) - The push for a Gaza ceasefire risks becoming mired in a regional tussle for influence between conservative Arab states and Islamist-friendly governments, with rival powers competing to take credit for a truce, analysts and some officials say.
The main protagonists are Arab heavyweight Egypt and the tiny Gulf state of Qatar, on opposite sides of a regional standoff over Hamas, the Islamist group that controls the Gaza Strip, and its ideological patron the Muslim Brotherhood.
Both camps suggest the other is motivated as much by a desire to polish diplomatic prestige and crush political adversaries as by the humanitarian goal of protecting Palestinian lives from the Israeli military.
Gaza has turned very suddenly into the theater in which this new alignment within the Arab world is being expressed, said UK-based analyst Ghanem Nusseibeh.
Gaza is the first test for these new alliances, and this has affected the possibility of reaching a ceasefire there.
He was referring to Qatar, Turkey, Sudan and non-Arab Iran, the main members of a loose grouping of states which believe Islamists represent the future of Middle East politics.
That camp stands in increasingly overt competition with a conservative, pro-Western group led by Egypt, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, most of whom are intent on crushing the Brotherhood and see it as a threat.
That cleavage is now apparent in the diplomacy over Gaza.
This was the new alignment in the Middle East spoken about in a previous article from Israel, posted a few days ago! Now Gaza and Hamas is the fulcrum in the middle of this test of wills between these two major blocks. Israel has aligned itself with the Egyptian side, because both Israel and Egypt have the common goal of crushing Hamas, while the other side wants to save Hamas!

Bibi generates HIGH respect to say what he means and do what he says. He should and is effectively telling 0’ to pound sand.
To do otherwise, to say “ok” to 0’ while continuing, would erode his support. It also goes against his grain as a truth teller.
...Hamas is an offshoot of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, which has been declared a terrorist group by Egypt's army-backed government and has faced a security crackdown since the military ousted one of its leaders, Mohamed Morsi
One should never tell a man like Netanyahu how he should conduct business, even in the context of sarcasm.
Apparently for the Obama regime Hamas is no longer a terror org.
translate to; stop defending yourselves against my Muslim brothers so we can eradicate you
Hamas Is the Muslim Brotherhood
by Andrew C. McCarthy
Indeed it is.
So is Obama .
Obama has given Hamas over a billion dollars to build those tunnels and he does not want to see his investment destroyed
Look here ... :-) ...
The USA (or Obama) has not given Hamas in Gaza any money or arms. Wherever you got that information ... you better go back and double-check that info, because it’s wrong.
Look here ... :-) ...
Look here ... :-) ...
I stand corrected.
The Obama Administration did not provide funds directly to Hamas. They are a terrorist organization and are not eligible for American foreign aid.
The Obama Administration did provide the funds for infrastructure development in Gaza as a humanitarian aid package for economic development of the Gaza Strip.
The funding provided to Gaza for infrastructure development was awarded to Gaza based companies controlled by Hamas. Hamas then diverted the aid money to their vision of economic development in Gaza - underground tunnels into Israel for terror attacks and for launching systems for rockets.
Ironically, Israel also provided the cement to build the tunnels free to Gaza from Israeli economic aid funding to Gaza
The stated goal of this U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) project is to award program contracts solely to West Bank and Gaza-area vendors, according to presolicitation notice released today.
The Local Construction Program, or LCP, as it is known, will seek out non-governmental entities to carry out a variety of initiatives involving local construction or rehabilitation of roads, buildings, water, wastewater, public buildings including health facilities, schools, and other infrastructure.
USAID said it expects to release a formal Request for Proposals around September 3, and will not accept bids until that time. The agency revealed few other details.
As U.S. Trade & Aid Monitor reported earlier this year, USAID began awarding contracts in a separate Palestinian project worth upwards of three-quarters of a billion dollars (see: USAID Contracts Start Flowing in $750 Million Palestinian Infrastructure Project; Monitor, Jan. 14, 2012).
The money has been distributed and I will leave it to you to determine how much of the funds were actually used for the initiative goals of building, expanding or repairing , local construction or rehabilitation of roads, buildings, water, wastewater, public buildings including health facilities, schools, and other infrastructure., in Gaza in the last 18 months
FWIW Gaza strip is about 25 miles long and 5 miles wide on average or about 125 square miles or 8 million dollars of infrastructure development per square mile in the year or so just from that one project and 8 mega bucks goes a long way in Gaza
