Hat/Tip to Fox News. Looks like John Boehner finally grew a pair and took action to directly challenge President Obama, albeit in a round-about manner. Speaker of the House, John Boehner invited Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu to speak at a joint session of Congress. And he did so without consulting with the White House. It seemed to be in response to Obama’s State of the Union speech, in which he warned Congress against new sanctions on Iran to halt their development of nuclear weapons. Boehner has asked Netanyahu to talk about the threats posed by Iran and ISIS. […]
Hat/Tip to Michael Wilner at The Jerusalem Post. The latest “talks” aimed at Iran abandoning it’s plans for obtaining nuclear weapons are nothing more than a sham. “Iran’s not being asked to dismantle the nuclear infrastructure,” the Israeli official said, having seen the proposal before the weekend. “Right now what they’re talking about is something very different. They’re talking about Ayatollah Khamenei allowing the P5+1 (the US, United Kingdom, France, Russia, China and Germany) to save face.” It seems that the world community is only worried about not looking bad, instead of keeping nuclear weapons out of the hands of […]
The Joe Biden, Bill Clinton, and Elizabeth Warren Edition VP Joe Biden colorfully slandered Jews yesterday with an offensive medieval stereotype. “My son as attorney general, the year in Iraq, came back and that’s one of the things that he finds is, was most in need, when he was over there in Iraq for a year, people would come to him and talk about what was happening at home, in terms of foreclosures, in terms of bad loans that were being, I mean these Shylocks who took advantage of these women and men while overseas.” The reference is from Shakespeare’s […]
Hat/Tip to Leon Leonard The Israeli Defense Forces are responsible for defending their homeland from surrounding Arab states 650 times the size of Israel. They can ill afford to be unprepared for self defense, and this level of readiness extends from the highest sophistication of their Iron Dome Missile Defense down to basic self defense. Watch this video and be prepared to be amazed at this 20 year old woman as she instructs the IDF in self defense. Post by The Jewish Standard.
This is THE best video I’ve seen to explain the ins and outs of the Israeli borders, how they came to be and how important they are to the survival of Israel. Ever wonder why Israel doesn’t just withdraw to its 1948 borders, approved by the UN. Wouldn’t life be simpler? Wouldn’t the wars end? This video, by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, made prior to the current conflict in Gaza, sums up the perspective opposing withdrawal from the land won in the 1967 Six Day War quite well. . .
This shouldn’t come as any kind of major surprise to anyone who has paid attention, but former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news. He is really making a splash with an op-ed he coauthored, in which he pushes for our government to formally recognize the terrorist organization, Hamas, as a legitimate political actor. Aren’t you glad this man isn’t in charge of our foreign policy right now? Although, what our current leadership is sadly lacking. Does anyone really take Jimmy Carter seriously anymore? The idea that he can be so obscenely incorrect in his assessment of the situation […]
The latest cease fire in the Gaza Strip, negotiated by Secretary of State John Kerry (pictured here) lasted less than 90 minutes before Palestinians kidnapped Israeli soldiers and resumed firing rockets. Ninety minutes. Five thousand four hundred seconds. The sum total of the cease fire. In keeping with my responsibility as a member of the mainstream media I have researched made up the following list of events that lasted as long as the Gaza cease fire. The Chevy Chase Show Remembered as the greatest disaster in the history of mankind and proof that the Devil exists and wants our souls. the […]
Hat/Tip to Breitbart. Jon Voight won’t sit still while fellow Oscar winners slam the state of Israel. Penelope Cruz and her husband Javier Bardem recently signed an open letter condemning Israel’s attacks on the rocket installations and the tunnels that Hamas has been using to attack and kill Israeli citizens. They referred to Israel’s actions as “genocide.” In part, the letter they signed covered not only the present defensive actions by Israel, but the blockade and even calls for a return to the 1967 borders. In the open letter, they demanded a cease-fire by the Israeli military and urged Israel […]
Hat/Tip to The Blaze. As Hamas repeatedly ignores cease-fire after cease-fire, Netanyahu has had enough of the meddling, feckless, anti-Israel policies of the Obama administration. After a U.S.- and U.N.-brokered cease-fire fell apart hours after it began — because, Israeli officials said, Hamas “flagrantly violated” the truce — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lashed out at President Barack Obama’s White House, instructing the administration, “not to ever second-guess me again.” An Israeli official said the Netanyahu government viewed both Hamas and Qatar as having violated the commitment given to the U.S. and the U.N. and that it expected the international […]
Our southern border is effectively wide open, with one big Welcome Mat on our side of the Rio Grande. Amnesty for La Raza is just a stroke of Dear Leader’s pen away. And he’s busily strong-arming the Congress into giving him $2.7 Billion dollars to house and feed the invaders to boot. But if an Israeli wants to visit America? Maybe to, you know, get away from the constant barrage of Palestinian rocket attacks? He’s out of luck. US Embassy in Tel Aviv Severely Restricts Visas for Israelis Tourist visa process cancelled until further notice, embassy announces. The US […]
Obama Angry with Israel, Shouts at NetanyahuHat/Tip to the Tea Party News Network & The Right Scoop. In this transcript of the phone call, we have to call it an alleged transcript for now, does Barack Obama cross the line? Is he really siding with the Terrorists, did he really tell Israel to stop defending herself?? Barack Obama: I demand that Israel agrees to an immediate, unilateral ceasefire and halt all offensive activities, in particular airstrikes. Benjamin Netanyahu: And what will Israel receive in exchange for a ceasefire? BO: I believe that Hamas will cease its rocket fire — silence […]
Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Hamas Chief: We Have No Current Plans To “Coexist” With Israel… Okay, not exactly news. But it needs to be reported. Too bad the MSM won’t do their job, it’s much easier to blame Israel. Via Business Insider: Khaled Meshaal, the political leader of Hamas, said in a recent interview that he has no plans to “coexist” with Israel as it is structured right now. “No. I do not want to live with a state of occupiers,” Mashaal said when directly asked if he wants to “coexist” with Israel or recognize the country “as a Jewish state.” […]
Hamas had apparently been preparing a murderous assault on Israeli civilian targets for the coming Jewish New Year Holiday, Rosh Hashanah, which begins on September 24, according anonymous sources in the Israeli security services, as reported today by the Israeli daily Maariv. The Hamas plan consisted of what was to be a surprise attack in which 200 fighters would be dispatched through each of dozens of tunnels dug by Hamas under the border from Gaza to Israel, and seize kibbutzim and other communities while killing and kidnapping Israeli civilians. Israeli soldiers already frustrated a surprise assault by Hamas through one […]
“Qatar is Hamas’s biggest and most important financier, a role it plays as well for ISIS, al Nusra, the Muslim Brotherhood and various jihadist groups in Libya.” – Caroline Glick “When it comes to American relations with our Israeli allies and our Islamic-supremacist enemies, you can always rely on Obama to do the wrong thing.” – Andrew C. McCarthy “I’ve got two years left in this presidency, I want to get a whole bunch of stuff done.” – Barack Obama Obama ain’t fooling anyone; at least, not anyone who doesn’t want to be fooled — which is usually the eternally […]
Two American-born Israeli soldiers were killed during the first days of Gaza fighting between Israel and Hamas. Very sad. My thoughts and prayers are with their families. May the loss of life be few during this war or fight in Gaza. Hat/Tip to Fox News: Two American-born soldiers for the Israeli Defense Forces were killed in fighting in the Gaza Strip, their families confirmed Sunday. Stuart Steinberg confirmed the death of his son Max Steinberg, 24, to The Associated Press on Sunday. Steinberg, whose family lives in Southern California’s San Fernando Valley, was a sharpshooter for the Golani Brigade. He […]
