Why Doesn’t Israel Just Withdraw to the 1948 Borders: Must See Video

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.   . .

Jimmy Carter Pushes US Government To Recognize Hamas

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 […]

Things That Lasted Longer Than the Gaza Strip Cease Fire

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 […]

Jon Voight Blasts Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz for Fanning Flames of Anti-Semitism

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 […]

Netanyahu to Obama after Hamas breaks yet another cease-fire: ‘Don’t Ever Second-Guess Me Again!’

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 […]

Obama’s Latest Immigration Plan: Yes to Illegal Border Crossers, No to Israeli Jews

  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 […]

Hamas Says No to Two State Solution

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 Mega-Attack Planned Through Gaza Terror Tunnels

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 […]

The Best Friend Hamas Ever Had

“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 IDF Soldiers Killed in Gaza Fighting

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 […]

Kristallnacht 2.0 in Paris: Mob Vandalizes Jewish Businesses

H/T: Instapundit

I wrote a series of posts a few years back comparing our present day issues with the 1930′s. I see that this is coming to pass, at least in Paris, where an Anti-Semitic mob (read Muslims or leftists), vandalized Jewish owned businesses in Paris suburb…

Obama uses his ‘phone’ to yell at Netanyahu

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers.

BREAKING: Hamas Claims They Have Kidnapped An Israeli Soldier…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. This is a troubling development, but at least this soldier has a leader in Netanyahu, unlike our Marine still in Mexico, waiting for Obama to notice him. Gaza City (AFP) – The armed wing of the Palestinian Hamas group claimed on Sunday night that it had kidnapped an Israeli soldier, prompting celebrations in the streets of Gaza City. “The Israeli soldier Shaul Aaron is in the hands of the Qassam Brigades,” a spokesman using the nom-de-guerre Abu Obeida said in a televised address.

Israeli Defense Forces Launch Ground Offensive in Gaza Strip

Hat/Tip to The Jerusalem Post. Netanyahu’s office says purpose of mission is to destroy terror tunnels and seriously harm the infrastructure of Hamas and other terrorist organizations in Gaza.

When In Doubt, Islam Always Turns To Violence

There are some things in this world that can always be depended on. For instance, we know the IRS will always be coming after your money. Even death can not stop their incessant grabbing for more and more tax dollars. We also know liberals will always blame conservatives for the very things they are doing themselves. That is a proven fact. And Islam? For the most part, the followers of Islam have but one way to settle their disputes with each other and the rest of the world. When in doubt, they almost always turn to some form of violence […]

Obama And White House Adviser Praise Abbas As Reliable Partner For Peace

There are people who try to hide the true feelings they hold dear to their heart. We have all seen them in action. Always playing it cagey, trying to play both sides of the story, never letting on how they really feel. They may be successful at that, up to a point, but there comes a time when this quote from the Bible will always hold true. From out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. Such is the case with the man who is currently residing in the White House, going by the title of President. From […]

ISIS Claims Access to Nukes, “will not hesitate” to destroy Israel

Hat/Tip to the Tea Party News Network. Well, it looks as if Obama has led from behind so well that he’s set up a scenario where ISIS now claims to have nukes. Do they? Who knows for sure. But one thing for sure that we do know, is that the Islamic mindset is that Israel needs to be “wiped off of the face of the earth.” Now, with our stature in freefall thanks to the amateurs running the State Department, Israel may one day be a memory as ISIS claims to have access to nuclear weapons and intends to use […]

Obama Administration puts Israel on Terror Watch List – Removes North Korea

Hat/Tip to Pamela Geller. It isn’t backwards day in Washington DC – or wait. I guess you could make the argument that every day is backwards day in DC. Anyway, it may as well be, because this administration has put Israel on a terror watch list – and taken North Korea off of it. Yep, you read that right. Only in the twisted world of the Obama Administration, where allies are trashed, and enemies are embraced, could the tiny nation of Israel, on the front lines of the war on terror for decades, be on a list of 36 nations […]
