At least two rockets were fired into northern Israel from Lebanon today. It’s not clear from media reports who was responsible for the attack. Hopefully this was an isolated attack by small group Palestinian militants and not attempt by Hezbollah to open a second front. From Fox News: A Hezbollah minister in Lebanon’s Cabinet denies […]
Little Green Footballs has photos from another hate filled anti-Israel rally… This time in Melbourne, Australia. I’ll repeat what I said before, as long this kind of hatred exists there will never be peace.
I posted video from a hate filled pro-Hamas rally in Fort Lauderdale yesterday. Today Michelle Malkin points out reports on two hate filled protests in San Francisco… One from Zombie the other from The Back of the Hill. I’ll repeat what I said yesterday, as long as this kind hatred exists there will never be […]
This video has been making the rounds on a few blogs so thought I might as well post it here. It was shot at a pro-Hamas demonstration in Fort Lauderdale, FL on December 30, 2008. The defining moment comes at around the 3:20 mark. There’s a lot of things I could think to say but […]
Israeli troops have begun moving into Gaza. From the Jerusalem Post: For the first time since the start of Operation Cast Lead, IDF ground troops entered the Gaza Strip on Saturday evening, exchanging fire with Hamas gunmen. The IDF said that a large amount of troops from the Armored Corps, Engineering Corps and Infantry Corps […]
They say a picture is worth a thousand words… John Hinderaker @ Powerline offers a powerful illustration of “The Conflict’s Root Cause“. It’s sad state of affairs but the state of Israel has been fighting for its very survival since it was established. Background here and here. H/T: Michelle Malkin.
So far I’ve resisted the urge to comment on Israel’s ongoing operations against Hamas… I just don’t see any value in playing armchair general or armchair diplomat.This morning though I picked up my local paper and read this bit of idiocy in the Letters to the Editor: The Israeli attack on the Gaza Ghetto, much […]
There’s always two sides to every story and unfortunately, for the most part the western new media has only told half story about the Russian invasion of Georgia. If you haven’t read Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili’s excellent Op Ed in today’s Wall Street Journal you should. Georgia Acted in Self-Defense Some people seem to misunderstand […]
Ralph Peters has an interesting column on Afghanistan in today’s New York Post. Peters directly addresses the difficulties of negotiating with the Taliban. THE TALKING TRAP: AFGHAN FOLLIES By Ralph Peters, New York Post, November 13, 2008 NEGOTIATIONS are the heroin of the chattering classes, blinding them to every reality except the next fix they […]
The New York Sun has the speech Governor Palin would have given today had her appearance at a rally to protest Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s appearance to the UN not been canceled. I am honored to be with you and with leaders from across this great country — leaders from different faiths and political parties […]
I linked to this previously but Michael Totten’s “The Truth About Russia in Georgia” is the most comprehensive report I’ve seen on the conflict – it’s a must read for anyone who wants to know what really happened – and it deserves much greater prominence than I gave it earlier. The Truth About Russia in […]
If you haven’t read the Op-Ed by by Lindsey Graham and Joe Lieberman in today’s Wall Street Journal you should. I don’t agree with Graham or Lieberman often but they’re spot-on here. Russia’s Aggression Is a Challenge to World Order By Lindsey Graham and Joe Lieberman, Wall Street Journal, August 26, 2008; Page A21 In the wake […]
I really should write something… Unfortunately, most of what’s in the news at the moment bores me to tears. I couldn’t care less about the Olympics and I’m sick of the presidential campaign… Cassandra at Villainous Company pretty much sums up my mood here. I am deeply concerned about Russia’s assault on Georgia… I’m not […]
I’m deeply troubled by the news out of Georgia, I’m not a expert on the region and I’m not going to try and play one on the internet. What I am doing to do to point you to two excellent posts by C. Blake Powers at Blackfive.net. The first is titled “No, It’s Not Good […]
