More here and here. Related Gaza-bound vessel really a ship of fools – Ruth Dudley Edwards, Irish Independent
It’s time for me to eat a little crow – feathers and all – here… I didn’t think the U.S. delegation would walk out during Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s address to the United Nations General Assembly this evening. But they did… along with the delegations of at least a dozen other nations: France on Wednesday […]
If you’ve been paying attention to the news over the last couple of days you’ve no doubt seen the headlines screaming “Netanyahu Says Yes to Palestinian State”… As is all to often the case you have to wade through several paragraphs to get the substance of what Prime Minister Netanyahu said. He did not give […]
If even half of what’s alleged in this Congressional Quarterly report is true Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA) and former attorney general Alberto Gonzales have a lot explaining to do: Rep. Jane Harman , the California Democrat with a longtime involvement in intelligence issues, was overheard on an NSA wiretap telling a suspected Israeli agent that […]
Someone using the name Joanna Pardue posted tried to post the following comment to a post on anti-Israel hated: If it’s okay to kill Palestinian women and children – [collective punishment] then it’s okay to kill Jewish women and children – outside Israel. If a few bombs go off in Jewish daycare centers around the […]
There was a time when I liked Pat Buchanan (although I can’t remember when or why) but over the years he’s said a variety of things that caused me to classify him as an crackpot… Like this summer when he blamed America for Russia’s invasion of Georgia. Or like last night on MSNBC’s “1600 Pennsylvania […]
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 […]
