Victory for Israel, by Israel - If Obama gets out of the way
National Review Online ^ | July 26. 2014 | Matthew Continetti

Slandered, despised, insulted, degraded, Israel is nonetheless winning its war against Hamas. The number of rocket attacks launched by the terror group each day has been halved. The IDF is uprooting the underground tunnels Hamas uses to smuggle weapons, contraband, and terrorists in and out of the Gaza Strip. On Wednesday evening, Israel’s Channel Two newscast carried footage of Hamas terrorists surrendering to the IDF. The jihadists carried white flags. They stripped to their shorts, proving they were not wearing suicide belts. These are facts Hamas does not want you to know, images Hamas does not want you to see.

And you probably won’t see them. Since the evening of July 17, when Israel launched its ground offensive, Western media has been filled with Hamas propaganda. In the United States, the debate over the conflict is invariably couched in terms favorable to Hamas: Are civilian casualties too high? Is it safe to fly into Ben-Gurion airport? Has the IDF targeted schools and hospitals? One MSNBC anchor calls Israel, which abandoned Gaza in 2005, the “occupying authority.” Another praises a “gutsy” Israeli, who refuses to serve in her nation’s military.

The latest on Obama weighting the scales:

Mikulski introduces rival border bill in Senate

"Mikulski said her bill contains emergency funding for the border crisis, wildfires and Israel's missile defense system, with the total spending coming to $3.5 billion........"


In a discussion of this on Fox News, it was mentioned that reports are that the idea in Milkulski's bill for attaching Israel Iron Dome emergency funding to the immigration bill came out of the White House.

Mikulski, a toad-like creature, needs to just go away. Disgusting and stupid.

no prisoners, Israel needs to kill every last terrorist

prisoners just get to be the focus of future hostage/kidnappings, stupid “good will” prisoner releases to please international diplomats etc.

You are exactly right. Many of us feel the same way.

Mikulski is still stupid.

Wouldn't this be the perfect time to destroy Iran's nuclear weapons program? They'd never see it coming.

“Victory for Israel, by Israel - If Obama gets out of the way”

That won’t stop him from taking credit for what will not be his to take unless he is completely out of the loop...but would even that be enough?

I could never understand why Secy. of State Kerry was only talking to the Israelis, then Egypt. Why on earth did he ignore going to Gaza to talk with Hamas leadership, or go to the Palestinian Authority?

This is such a feckless undertaking. So far Hamas has said “NO! NO! NO!” and Kerry’s words are not stopping anything.

It’s the Dhimmicratic MO - The Toon fought welfare reform every step of the way, and then took credit for it when it was rammed down his throat by the Pubbie congress.

Only if Israel lets him!

Obama & Kerry should be denounced daily by someone in the Israeli cabinet close enough to Netanyahu to make it obvious that it’s what Netanyahu really thinks of them.

One thing that must be made clear here is that the USA doesn’t give money or arms to Hamas, but the USA does give humanitarian aid to the People there in Gaza through agencies, such as UNRWA who administers the programs.

And Israel, who controls the goods that go into Gaza (they have a blockade around Gaza) does let the goods that the USA sends in through UNRWA go through their checkpoints, as Israel has no problem with that.

What Israel doesn’t let go through their checkpoints or past their blockade are arms and material for war going to Hamas.

ALSO ... humanitarian aid or aid to the Palestinian Authority, which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has lobbied and urged Congress to continue supporting (because Israel doesn’t want it’s soldiers administering the PA territories) ... is given to the Palestinians on the West Bank.

And don’t be confused by the “unity pact” which is nothing but a “paper document” for foreign consumption ... with Hamas ... when it is the Palestinian Authority” and Abbas who are fully in control of Judea and Samaria.

The problem some have is that they can’t see the details and distinguish what is going on. And they confuse criminals and criminal actions of terrorists with support that the USA is giving to Palestinians, versus the terror groups.

They ignore that Prime Minister Netanyahu has no problem with humanitarian aid for Palestinian civilians and he also wants support for the Palestinian Authority to continue so Israel won’t have to administer the territories.

What neither the USA or Israel wants is any money or arms to the terrorist organization and neither one of them is doing that.

Israel and the USA are against Hamas and against supplying them in Gaza!

this is true..

However, giving Hamas 48 million will buy a lot of rockets.

In regards to the Israelis distinguishing the Palestinian residents in GAZA from the HAMAS operatives ... here’s what the Israeli Ambassador said just a couple of days ago!


Don’t let the enemies if Israel “spread the lie” that Israel treats all of Gaza as the enemy. It’s only Hamas that is the enemy!

— — —

Speaking at the conference, Israel’s ambassador to the body, Eviatar Manor told the debate that “Israel will destroy Hamas’ military infrastructure.” He also added that “the Gaza residents are not our enemy. Israel is fully committed to international law.” The ambassador also slammed the UN Human Rights Council saying they had “failed to protect the human rights of Israelis,” Haaretz reports.
