Obama's Tranquility ... VDH
PJ Media ^ | 20 July 2014 | Victor Davis Hansen

Barack Obama’s team recently took credit for improving the “tranquility of the global community,” and the president made it clear just what a calm place the world has become during his tenure.

But this summer Obama’s tranquil world has descended into medieval barbarism in a way scarcely seen in decades. In Gaza, Hamas is banking its missile arsenal in mosques, schools and private homes; even Hitler did not do that with his V2s. Hamas terrorists resort to trying to wire up animals to serve as suicide bombers. Aztec-style, they seek to capture Israeli soldiers to torture or trade — a sort of updated version of parading captive soldiers up the Templo Mayor in Tenochtitlan.

Hamas cannot build a hotel, but instead applies its premodern cunning to tunneling and killing in ever more insidious ways. Yet it proves incompetent in doing what it wishes to do best — kill Jewish civilians. Its efforts to kill Jews while getting killed in the process earn it sympathy from the morally obtuse of the contemporary world who would have applauded Hitler in 1945 as an underdog who suffered greatly as he was overwhelmed by the Allies that he once tried to destroy.

Well if Hamas is trying to wire up animals with explosives that will sway the terrorist-loving, PETA-endorsing moonbats to withdraw their support!

Global tranquility at the demonic frenzy

Muslims in Nigeria went on the attack against Christianity, and slaughtered 150 Christians in a demonic frenzy, including their pastor. Many of the victims were taken away by the Muslims, and the pastor’s family has not been found since his death. A church member said

"Hamas terrorists resort to trying to wire up animals to serve as suicide bombers..”

I can't believe that the guidance systems in these weapons delivery vehicles are foolproof.
