State Dept Criticizes Israeli Strike on Power Plant: ‘Deeply Troubled By Humanitarian Impact’
Free Beacon ^ | 7/19/14 | Washington Free Beacon Staff

Posted on 07/29/2014 5:59:15 PM PDT by Nachum

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said her department was “deeply troubled” by Israel’s strike on a Gaza power plant, continuing an ongoing trend of Kerry’s State Department obliquely criticizing Israel’s actions.

“We’re deeply troubled by the humanitarian impact of reduced electricity in Gaza,” Psaki told reporters, “particularly for emergency services, and urge all parties to respect the civilian nature of these facilities.”

“We’re deeply troubled by the humanitarian impact of reduced water in Detroit,” Psaki told reporters, “particularly for emergency services, and urge all parties to respect the civilian nature of these facilities.”

Hamas is behind in their bills too.

Is this the State Dept that gave al Qaeda MANPADs
at Benghazi AND LIED TO CONGRESS?

or is this the State Dept that supports the financier
of the Munich Atrocity?

or the State Dept that prays at the murderer of
Mr.Klinghoffer each morning?

or the one that paid for the UN-Obama rocket tubes in Gaza?

I’m deeply troubled that our government isn’t supporting Israel’s right to defend itself.

Don’t fire missles at Israel. Don’t dig tunnels under their border and they won’t blast your power plant.

(Unless of course you make death threats and your plant us nuclear.)

Its called disabling command and control.

Yep. And the plant only supplies 20 percent of their electricity. Israel supplies the rest.

I don’t get it —is power consumption good, or is it BAD?

Isn’t it BAD?

It seems the IDF has enriched Gazans by liberating them from oppressive electricity.

Seems to me the gazans were unjustifiably enriched —payment (or at least thanks) is in order.

Don’t know if it has been determined the power plant bomb was from Israel; could just as well been a hamas rocket turning into a boomerang. Or, deliberate by hamas for the sympathy it brings.

There was no electric power in the time of Mo’-Ham-Mad. It is therefore haram (like AK-47’s).

Humanitarian concerns didn’t stop Clinton and NATO from bombing Serbian infrastructure in support of Muslims so too bad for the Muzzies this time around. Kerry supported bombing Christians and again the Dems are coming to save the terrorists.

Don’t dig tunnels under their border and they won’t blast your power plant.

Knocking out the power plant is a clever way to turn off the lights in the tunnels. Now the tunnels can be relit with jellied gasoline.

Damn the Leftist Bureaucracy of this Nation. The Left has put in place, built nests for their rats to occupy throughout our government. They sandbag everything commonsense, and manipulate until they achieve the goals of their source of power which of course is the Democrat Party. The party mascot IS appropriate but should be flippin’ the wee birdie to the direction of it’s right side to be truly authentic.

The only way to get back this country is to wipe out the nests throughout the Executive Branch the Democrats have been allowed to build, and fill to the brim, and beyond with those they so generously payoff with our money.

We need to take the entire three branches with representation unlike that which we have today, and kick butt.

Paski, Skerry, et al should be thankful to Israel for taking out the Hamas power plant. Just think, that power plant is no longer spewing evil CO2 into the air over Gaza. This means we’ll soon see an easing in Globul Warming in Gaza. May Allah be praised!

What a typical pile of Obama lies!

The Hamasimians launched a rocket which destroyed a power line supplying the Palisimians. This uniquely brilliant example of Hamasimian tactics occurred several days ago.

If Hamasimians don’t care if the Palisimians are in the dark why should anyone else?

Frankly, I think the most effective, humane way to deal with the rocket fire would have been to cut off all power and power plants the day the first rocket was fired.
Turn it back on when it stops. Just let the Pali’s deal with Hamas after about a week of now power and water.

Sadly, that is not the muslim way. The Political/Monied class of Arabs have made the ‘Palestinians’ their border population against Israel like Central Texas made the Mormons their border population against the murderous Comanches in 1850.

All signs now point to Israel taking out the trash and possibly immunizing the ‘Palestinians’ against Hamas. In order to eradicate the biggest share of pests, you have to gather them in one place.

From the video and stills I saw, the Israelis only hit the oil tanks. While I’m sure the plant was damaged, it looked like the power could be back on with just a little oil and some repairs.
