Israel's "Disproportionate" Self-Defense

By Alan Caruba

On Sunday, July 27, Eleanor Clift, a member of The McLaughlin Group panel, referred to Israel’s “disproportionate” response to the thousands of rockets and missiles that Hamas has been firing at its citizens for months, if not years.

This is a common criticism of Israel, but it is far easier to make if you are living safely somewhere other than Israel and not being awakened by alarm sirens at 5 A.M. with just a little time to make it to a bomb shelter.

Ms. Clift was hardly alone. In Great Britain, the Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, in contrast to Prime Minister David Cameron, also declared Israel’s response to Hamas as a “disproportionate form of collective punishment” on the citizens of Gaza.

On July 26, The Times of Israel reported that “Thousands of pro-Palestinian protesters marched in London and Paris on Saturday, calling out against Israel’s military operation in the Hamas-controlled Palestinian enclave."

In London, the second Saturday in a row, the protest was estimated to have drawn more than 10,000 participants. “Demonstrators held placards reading ‘Stop Israeli State Terror’. ‘Freedom for Palestine’ and ‘Gaza—End the Siege.’ They also chanted ‘Shame on you David Cameron’ as they filed past the British prime minister’s Downing Street office.” By contrast, Paris cracked down on pro-Palestinian demonstrations and, along with Germany and Italy, denounced expressions of anti-Semitism.

No doubt the expressions of support were welcome in Israel, but when it strikes back against its enemies it tends to run out of friends rather swiftly. Scandinavia, Denmark, Finland and Norway all backed the Palestinians but the European Union did condemn the rocket attacks by Hamas, as well as its use of human shields.

Departing from President Obama’s pro-forma statement on Israel’s right to defend itself, South American nations condemned Israel in tune with their general acceptance of the view that Israel is an aggressor and occupier despite the fact that in relinquished control of Gaza to the Palestinians in 2005. Joining in the chorus of condemnations were Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

The hypocrisy of those who raise the issue of “proportionate response” is breathtaking.

How Richard Nixon Saved Israel

Funny. Never heard about this in history class:

Since land was set aside by the United Nations to establish the State of Israel in 1948, a series of regional and ideological conflicts – and, indeed, often violent fighting – has broken out between Israel and the Arab States, collectively known as the Arab-Israeli conflict. The Six Day War of 1967 was one of them, and resulted in a decisive Israeli victory, gaining new boundaries for Israel. Syria and Egypt, two leading nations in the Arab world, desired their lost land, declaring afterward in a summit that there would be “no peace, no recognition, and no negotiation with Israel.” Egyptian President Anwar Sadat publicly decried the Jewish state, and announced that even a slight admission of defeat by Israel may alter the status-quo in the unstable region. It is then no surprise that Israel began a military buildup and attempted to heavily fortify its borders.

Then came the attacks of October 6, 1973 – a coordinated, surprise attack on Yom Kippur, the Holiest of days in the Jewish calendar. To demonstrate how much Israel was up against: 180 Israeli tanks faced over 1400 Syrian tanks; closer to the Suez Canal, a mere 436 Israeli infantry were poised to fight over 80,000 Egyptian soldiers – this even after Israel’s military buildup. The attacks by Egypt and Syria were backed by nine Arab states – as well as one non-Arab state: the Soviet Union.

Richard Nixon’s role, and that of those within his Administration, in the Yom Kippur War has been credited with literally saving Israel from an onslaught of potentially devastating attacks. The President recognized the threat that an Arab victory posed, the “threat of victory by Soviet arms,” according to author Conrad Black. The Soviet government was the Arab world’s chief supplier of munitions, and was strategically attempting to spread its influence throughout the region.

THAT'S A RELIEF: "Ebola could easily arrive in the USA on board a plane, but wouldn't spread far, experts say"

And the quote doesn't come to us from some tabloid click-bait farm, it's actually from USA Today:

The growing Ebola outbreak in West Africa serves as a grim reminder that deadly viruses are only a plane ride away from the USA, health experts say.

The outbreak is the largest and deadliest on record, with more than 670 deaths and more than 1,200 infections in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Fatality rates for Ebola have been as high as 90% in past outbreaks, according to the World Health Organization.

The virus — which has an incubation period of a few days to three weeks — could easily travel to the USA through infected travelers...

Yet while Ebola is a fearsome disease, the virus "would not pose a major public health risk" in the USA... That's because people need to be in intimate contact to spread the virus...

Ebola is actually much harder to spread than respiratory infections, such as influenza or measles. Those viruses pose a much greater threat on a plane or in any confined space, says Osterholm, who notes that people cannot spread the Ebola virus simply by sneezing or coughing.

Let's hope this crop of experts is a tad more accurate than the clan of scammers who tried to market global warming climate change climate disruption.

QOTD: "Why do world leaders take every opportunity to set alarms and ask for wake-up calls when Israel – only Israel – hits back at Hamas terrorists? Where were those ‘moral voices’ when it came to taking timely action to prevent Hamas from stockpiling 10,000 rockets? Why didn’t UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, US Secretary of State John Kerry and the foreign ministers of the EU rush to Israel to convene a conference on how to tighten borders and close tunnels to prevent terrorists from smuggling arms and weapons into Gaza? Why didn’t they demand that no foreign aid be dispensed in neighborhoods housing Hamas military personnel? Why is there never an emergency UN Security Council meeting on how to excise a malignancy and end Hamas’s rule of terror in Gaza? Why do they never shuttle to the region to seek a way to stop the perpetrators and their funders like Iran and Qatar, but come only to put reins on the defenders? Of course it’s horrible to see images of innocent children killed in the incursion. But whose fault is that if not Hamas’s, with their sick ideology of loving death and martyrdom and their tactic of deliberately placing children in harm’s way?" --Marvin Hier

Our Nation's Absent Father

Even foreign media have noticed that our President has, uhm, checked out:

Consider this: In recent days, a) Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down, apparently by Russian separatists in Ukraine, b) In the Gaza strip, the numbers killed continued to mount as Israelis and Palestinians exchange rocket fire, c) a huge influx of children fleeing Central American poverty and gang warfare swamped America’s southern border, creating a humanitarian crisis.

And, oh yeah, d) Christians living in Mosul were given the choice to either convert to Islam or flee the area they have inhabited for nearly two thousand years.

You know what else has happened during this time? a) Obama played many rounds of golf, b) he attended numerous fund-raisers, c) he dined on barbecue in Texas and burgers in Delaware, and d) he almost appeared on the comedian Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night television show in Hollywood.

The subhead on the Telegraph's story is brutal: "The degree to which Barack Obama is now phoning it in – sleepwalking perfunctorily through his second term, amid golf rounds and dinner parties – is astonishing."

And when you've lost Dianne Feinstein:

Listing the numerous global crises currently facing the United States, Senate Intelligence Committee chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) questioned whether President Obama is devoting enough attention to these issues rather than focusing on political fundraisers and events.

“This is a very hard time,” she said on MSNBC on Monday, referencing the ongoing civil war in Syria, the continued push by ISIS in Iraq, the state of Iranian nuclear negotiations, the Gaza–Israel conflict, and the dispute between Russia and Ukraine. “I’m not going to tell the president what to do, but I think the world would very much respect his increased attention on this matter, and I think there ought to be increased attention.”

Feinstein’s call for Obama to be more focused and attentive comes as he is ... on a three-day trip to the West Coast for Democratic fundraisers in Seattle, the Bay Area, and Los Angeles.

I repeat my call for Section 8 Housing for Illegal Aliens on Martha's Vineyard. Which would appear to be the only way to get Dear Leader to pay attention.

SURPRISE: "Tech" news site Mashable is a front for the Nazi-aligned Hamas terror organization

Question: When is a tech news site actually a public relations arm for a bloodthirsty terror group?

Answer: when that tech news website is called Mashable. Consider a couple of their recent stories, designed to garner sympathy for actual bloodthirsty war criminals (no links for obvious reasons; simply search for the headline and you'll find it if you decide you prefer to read Hamas marketing material):

'Am I Going to Die, Daddy?' The Child in Gaza Asked by Jon Snow

U.N. Official Warns of Gaza War Crimes; Only U.S. Votes Against Investigating by AP

45000 Londoners Protest Israel's Operation in Gaza by Colin Daileda

13 Anonymous Admissions From Israelis About Gaza on Whisper by Brian Ries

UN Made Clear It Was Sheltering Kids But School in Gaza Still Got Hit by Mashable Team

Israel Is Losing Control of the Gaza Media War by Colin Daileda

A Day in Gaza: A Destroyed Hospital and 'Gut-Slamming Explosion' by Jonathan Miller

Thousands Flee Major Battle With Israel in Gaza, Death Toll Tops 420 by the AP

Israeli Airstrikes Injure Three Journalists in Gaza by Brian Ries

PJMedia's Bryan Preston rightfully asks, "Is Tech Site Siding with Hamas Terrorists?"

In “‘Am I Going to Die, Daddy?’ The Child in Gaza Asked,” reporter Jon Snow states that “If the Israelis have proved anything, it is that there is no such thing as a forensic strike.” Snow never allows for the fact while Israel tries to avoid civilian casualties, while Hamas feeds on them.

After chronicling several heart-breaking cases of kids caught up in the crossfire, Snow rhetorically asks “Can they really be the acceptable collateral damage of targeting militants?”

The tone of the entire piece puts the moral responsibility for all casualties in Gaza not on Hamas, the terrorist group that is still dedicated to destroying Israel and which started the current conflict, but on Israel...

Today’s and tomorrow’s Israelis are paying a price too, are they not? You wouldn’t know it from reading Jon Snow, or indeed anything published at Mashable...

...Snow’s piece fits well within Hamas’ anti-Israel propaganda. Why is a tech site like Mashable publishing it?

It's almost as if Snow and Mashable are operating as a free public relations firm for one of the most bloodthirsty terror groups in the world, and one that is a a direct descendant of Nazi Germany.

Here's one of many videos secretly taped in Gaza that Mashable won't show you: Hamas terrorists savagely beats Gaza civilians who heed IDF calls to leave targeted areas, for instance.

Mashable also won't tell you that the Hamazis are forcibly strapping suicide belts to children and sending them into Israeli lines at gunpoint.

Hamas is committing war crimes daily, using civilians as human shields and targeting innocents with their thousands of rockets.

Hamas is a group with direct ties to the Third Reich and Adolf Hitler.

Why Mashable is promoting this Nazi sickness is beyond me, but it is reprehensible. There is no moral equivalence between Hamas and Israel, none.

SESSIONS: All Americans must help stop Obama's dictatorial threats to expand Amnesty to millions

By Senator Jeff Sessions

I call on the American public to rally Congress against the President’s openly declared threat to implement, by executive order, the amnesty that Congress has rejected:

How Congress chooses to act in the coming hours and days will determine whether the President succeeds in his plan to nullify the immigration laws of the United States.

Just yesterday, TIME magazine reported that the President is considering a grant of ‘work authorization for perhaps several million undocumented immigrants.’ Permitting those illegally present in the U.S. to work and take jobs is contrary to plain law, which the President has no power to change. Yet Democratic members of Congress have openly crowed about these planned executive actions.

It has now been extensively reported that these executive actions will likely expand his Deferred Action program (DACA) to apply to an additional 5–6 million adult illegal immigrants. The existing DACA program has been widely misunderstood. The executive action did not, as The Hill writes today, only result in ‘deferred deportations for young undocumented immigrants.’ Illegal immigrants in the interior of the U.S. have already, as a practical matter, been immune from enforcement under this Administration. DACA applies to individuals up to 30 years of age and provides actual amnesty papers, photo ID, and work permits to illegal immigrants—who can then take any job in America.

The President’s planned executive orders would expand this permitting program to another 5–6 million illegal immigrants. This would effectively end immigration enforcement in America.

No Member—House or Senate, Democrat or Republican—should support any bill with respect to the border crisis that does not include language explicitly prohibiting the Administration from taking such action. Congress must foreclose any possibility of these unlawful executive actions before congressional funding is granted. This is an essential precondition.

The American people have begged and pleaded for years for our laws to be enforced.  We have people in our own country living in violence, fear, and poverty every single day.  They have demanded an immigration policy that puts their jobs, wages, and communities first. Every citizen should pick up the phone and ask of their congressional representative: where do you stand?

QOTD: "If Obama were a Republican, the press and the weekly news shows would be ringing with hyperbolic, apocalyptic denunciations of the clueless incumbent who had failed to learn the most basic lessons of Iraq. Indeed, the MSM right now would be howling that Obama was stupider than Bush. Bush, our Journolist friends would now be saying ad nauseam, at least had the excuse that he didn’t know what happens when you overthrow a paranoid, genocidal, economically incompetent Arab tyrant in an artificial post-colonial state. But Obama did—or, the press would nastily say, he would have done if he’d been doing his job instead of hitting the golf course or yakking it up with his glitzy pals at late night bull sessions. The ad hominem attacks would never stop, and all the tangled threads of incompetence and failure would be endlessly and expertly picked at in long New Yorker articles, NYT thumbsuckers, and chin-strokings on all the Sabbath gasbag shows.

Why, the ever-admirable tribunes of a free and unbiased press would be asking non-stop, didn’t this poor excuse for a President learn from what happened in Iraq? When you upend an insane and murderous dictator who has crushed his people for decades under an incompetent and quirky regime, you’d better realize that there is no effective state or civil society under the hard shell of dictatorial rule. Remove the dictator and you get chaos and anarchy. Wasn’t this President paying attention during the last ten years?" --Walter Russell Mead

A World Without Mark Levin

Try to imagine a world without Mark Levin.

A world in which the Constitution is seldom, if ever, mentioned and never thoughtfully discussed as society's rudder.

A world in which the rule of law is amorphous and no public voices decry these affronts, explaining the historical dangers associated with such acts.

A world in which the achievements of Locke, Montesquieu, Bastiat, Mason, Madison, Jefferson, Washington, Milton Friedman, and others are relegated to brief discussions in a few forlorn clasrooms.

A world in which the word statist is never uttered and the consequences of statism are never discussed.

A world in which the go-along-to-get-along Republican establishment -- the descendents of the Nixon, Rockefeller and Ford wing of the country club neo-statists -- are never held to account.

A world in which the intellectual underpinnings of conservatism are never dissected piece by piece, explained, and then reassembled in terms revealing, enlightening, and bracing.

A world in which the Framers are never discussed, nor the critical arguments they had among one another during America's founding are long forgotten.

A world in which the moral, philosophic, legal, and economic tenets undergirding societies both new and olden are ignored and generally forgotten.

A world in which the authoritarian malevolence of the ruling elites in Washington is never discussed and those promoting lawless behavior never named.

A world in which the few voices willing to oppose the elites in Washington -- the privileged ruling class of both parties -- are never celebrated or cheered.

A world without a simple playbook, authorized by the Constitution itself, for addressing an authoritarian government that has grown monstrous and detached from the citizenry and is simply unwilling to reform itself.

A world without a spokesman for America's greatness.

A world in which those who are conservatives can't easily describe why it is they believe as they do.

But we have this much: we have Mark Levin.

Say a little prayer tonight: we have Mark Levin.

8 Insane Things Put in Place by John McCain's $100 Million Pro-Invasion Spending Bill

We always knew John McCain was a kook. His anti-First Amendment and incumbent protection bill -- McCain-Feingold -- was an outrage. His lies to the people of Arizona when he was up for reelection in 2010 ("Secure the dang border!") were pathetic. His feckless promotion of intervention in Syria culminated in his glamour shots with members of ISIS. And his serial abuse of the Constitution and Constitutional conservatives like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee deserve nothing but scorn.

So just when you thought McCain couldn't get any dumber or more malicious, we get word of his $100,000,000 bill that promote illegal immigration. Consider the eight key facets of this epic treason:

1) Spends $100,000,000.

2) Asserts acts that are already illegal are now illegal.

3) Makes it a federal crime to tell someone where a DHS, HHS or Border Patrol bus carrying illegal aliens is spotted, coming from or headed.

4) Makes it a federal crime to prohibit a DHS, HHS or Border Patrol bus from moving from point A to point B.

5) Does absolutely nothing to secure the border and stop the invasion in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. These southern borders will remain wide open and the bill doesn’t address this.

6) Creates a communication channel between HHS and states about newly recommended facilities for housing illegal aliens.

7) Opens up U.S. facilities in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador for the purpose of processing illegal aliens on foreign soil.

8) Calls for 15,000 “refugees” from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador to be processed on foreign soil and transported into the U.S. this year alone.

This treasonous, reckless behavior must stop.
