Greatest Danger to Operation Protective Edge is Obama

idff3

Militarily, Israel is crushing the Hamas IslamoNazis. The terror tunnels  are being destroyed and Hamas is using up their stores of terror rockets.

But danger lurks in the form of John Kerry and the anti-Israel administration of Barack Hussein Obama.

From Matthew Continetti at the Washington Free Beacon.

In the United States, the debate over the conflict is invariably couched in terms favorable to Hamas: Are civilian casualties too high? Is it safe to fly into Ben-Gurion airport? Has the IDF targeted schools and hospitals? One MSNBC anchor calls Israel, which abandoned Gaza in 2005, the “occupying authority.” Another praises a “gutsy” Israeli, who refuses to serve in her nation’s military.

On CNN, the Islamist Turkish prime minister says Israel has “surpassed what Hitler did.” A CNN reporter calls Israelis “scum”; a NBC reporter tweets a scurrilous article calling U.S. Jews who join the IDF “America’s Israeli jihadists”; and a writer for Gawker says it’s time to send the Jews back to Germany. Reporters once embedded with military forces. Now the talking points of a military force—the talking points of Hamas—are embedded in the U.S. media.

And yet the immediate danger to the success of this necessary war does not come from the electronic intifada. It does not come from resurgent anti-Semitism, or the United Nations Human Rights Council, or the failure of so many Western elites to recognize the causes of this war, their inability to distinguish between a democratic country struggling to protect its people and a terror state using children as hostages. Hate, law-fare, decadence—they are all challenges for Israel. But Israel can endure them for now. Israel is used to it.

What Israel should not endure is the premature conclusion of hostilities. Disarming Hamas—seizing its rocket caches, collapsing its tunnels, killing and capturing its forces—is vital to Israeli security. And an artificial ceasefire imposed by outside powers, a ceasefire written in terms favorable to Hamas, would undermine the security gains Israel has made to date. President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have given no sign that they recognize this fact. Or maybe they understand it all too well: The Obama administration’s top priority is imposing a ceasefire at exactly the moment when Israel’s military success is becoming clear.

Operation Protective Edge — The Terror Tunnels

tunnel

There is a sense that Operation Protective Edge will be different than previous IDF operations against the IslamoNazis of Gaza.

The reasons for this new grim determination are multi-faceted, but Seraphic Secret believes that the offensive danger posed by the terror tunnels cannot be overstated. We hear reports of children living near the Gaza border who cower at night, telling their parents they hear shovels digging under their beds.

It has become clear that these tunnels are highly sophisticated bunkers of reinforced concrete with electric generators and sewage systems. They seem to be modeled on the warren of underground tunnels and bunkers used so effectively by the Japanese in the South Pacific during WWII.

These tunnels are a game changer and every Israeli—except the clinically insane left—understands that no society can tolerate or endure such terror-inducing capabilities. In fact, the rockets of Gaza pale in comparison to the tunnels of terror, which seem to number in the dozens.

Brief Encounter LA Style and Operation Protective Edge

protective dge

Yesterday, Karen and I made a trip to a local mall.

On our way to the Apple store we passed a skin-care salon. Standing in the doorway was an elegant young man who handed a free sample to Karen. We said thank you, and the young man, an Israeli who spotted my yarmulke, said, “Shalom.”

I said: “Shalom, shalom, ve-ayn shalom.”

Hamas Dead Baby Strategy

mosulchurches2

The Christian community in Mosul have been given the choice to pay an exorbitant tax, convert to Islam — or die.

In response, thousands of Christians are fleeing Mosul with little more than the clothes on their backs. Their valuables are being systematically looted by the IslamoNazis, who are establishing a caliphate in lands that were once parts of Iraq and Syria.

You would think that a purge against this two-millennia-old Christian community would elicit storms of protest across the civilized world. You would expect that hundreds of Islamic scholars would publicly denounce this mass atrocity and that there would be million-man marches from all the moderate Muslims we keep hearing about.

But of course, there is a black hole of silence.

Why Did Hamas Launch Its Current Rocket Offensive Against Israel?

IDF graphic depicting the terror infrastructure Hamas has installed in Shujaiya.

Here’s an excellent article from MEMRI.

Introduction

The current Gaza conflict, which broke out following a deliberate escalation by Hamas when it fired dozens of rockets into Israeli cities over a wide radius (including Beersheba, Rehovot, and Ashdod and later Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa) raises questions about the reasons for this rocket offensive by Hamas. Why is it that, on July 7, 2014, Hamas broadened the scope of the battle beyond the exchanges of fire with Israel that had occurred previously, and fired rockets deeper into Israel than it had since Operation Pillar of Defense in late 2012?

Apparently, Hamas’ decision to launch a rocket offensive against Israel was made on the local level by Hamas’ military arm, the ‘Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades, perhaps without consulting with the movement’s political wing either within or outside the Gaza Strip – and this for local and immediate reasons to be detailed below, alongside additional motives linked to the deteriorating status of the movement in the internal Palestinian arena as well as in the inter-Arab arena.

1. The Immediate Motive For Hamas’ Rocket Offensive: Israel’s Discovery And Targeting Of A Strategic Hamas Project

On July 5, two days before Hamas fired its first heavy barrage of rockets into Israel, Israel struck one of Hamas’ dozens of long tunnels leading out of the Gaza Strip into Israel. The tunnel was one of several that were built in recent years as a strategic project to surprise Israel in future conflicts, enabling Hamas to move armed activists deep into Israel to carry out terror attacks in densely populated areas.

The discovery and destruction of this tunnel and the strategic planning behind it (in addition to the deaths of activists from its military arm inside the tunnel) apparently pushed the military arm into responding with a wide-scale rocket barrage, including long-range rockets, aimed at striking areas across and deep inside Israel, and thus provoking a wide-scale Israeli reaction.

Give Peace A Chance — Not

The IDF has begun its ground offensive in the reichlet of Gaza. The goal of this operation is to degrade the Hamas infrastructure of tunnels and rockets, thus restoring peace to the people of Israel.

Between fundraisers, Obama called Bibi and demanded that Israel exercise restraint.

If rockets were raining down on two-thirds of the American population, do you think America would exercise restraint against the aggressor?

Well, with Obama — probably.

For PalNazis Losing is Winning

“War is cruelty.  There is no use trying to reform it.  The crueler it is, the sooner it will be over.” -William Tecumseh Sherman

“War is cruelty. There is no use trying to reform it. The crueler it is, the sooner it will be over.”
-William Tecumseh Sherman

Basic terrorist doctrine states that merely surviving a conflict is a victory.

Sort of like cockroaches surviving a nuclear event.

But in a very real sense, this terrorist doctrine is correct.

Plato, Kierkegaard, Wittgenstein, PalNazis — and Flying Pigs

WhenPigsFlyIcon001

Bret Stephens has an interesting article in today’s WSJ in which he posits that if the PalNazis turned all Gandhi, a Pal state would become inevitable.

For this to happen, the PalNazis would have to stop being who and what they are: Islamic Supremacists, Jew-haters, barbarians.

I once took a philosophy course in college. After surveying all the big boys, from Plato to Kierkegaard to Wittgenstein, I innocently asked the professor what practical application these philosophies had in real life.

My professor looked at me with pity.

“None,” he said, “philosophy is beyond the physical world.”

Which is a pretty good description of Stephens’ intellectual exercise.

French IslamoNazis Attack Jews in Synagogue

French IslamoNazis whip themselves into a jihadist, Jew-hating fury

French IslamoNazis whip themselves into a jihadist, Jew-hating fury

This report from Paris from Elder of Ziyon, via JSS News.

I’m in Paris.

I’ve seen these videos where they shout “Death to the Jews” in the streets of Paris. But the truth is that with a video, we are still not that aware of this reality.

So when I, completely by chance, ended up at Republic Square in the middle of the afternoon, and I saw this pro-Palestinian rally, …. But I wanted to see it more closely.

I do not have the peace of mind enough to write about it as it happened. It’s too hot.

But then:

- Death to the Jews
- Death to Ashkenazi! 
- Hitler was right 
- Hamas Resistance! 
- Jihad! Jihad! Jihad! 
- Palestine must finish the job (started by Hitler)

Esther Ralston was blessed with a lovely, melodic voice, thus it’s something of a puzzle why Paramount dropped Esther’s option in 1929.

Esther was a rising star who, between 1924 and 1929, starred or co-starred in twenty-five films. She was a natural for talkies.

But the mystery is soon cleared up as Esther explains:

Operation Protective Edge: The Liberal Media’s Advocacy for Terrorism

camera-pic

Modern warfare operate in two dimensions that are deeply intertwined:

1. The actual battlefield.

2. The media battlefield.

The PalNazis have  benefited in the informational wars by virtue of their ideological alignment with the organs of the LibProgs such as The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, all virulently anti-Israel publications who support the Democrat party.

The IDF, for better or for worse, has instituted a policy of warning Arab civilians that their homes are about to be bombed, thereby giving the allegedly innocent civilians the opportunity to flee and save their lives.

You would think that such an unprecedented measure to spare civilian lives would be met by LibProgs with cries of admiration—but you would be wrong.

My good friend David Gerstman, AKA Soccer Dad, analyses the depraved LibProg reaction to Israel’s attempt to avoid collateral damage.

Gaza… Again, Operation Protective Edge

F121118TA11-635x357

I think it was at this moment that brought to me the realization that I wanted war, but I had no right to admit it.  Not war for the excitement of it, not even war for victory’s sake, but war as a solution to a situation that was unbearable. Not war to kill, but war in order not to be killed.

—“Israel Journal: June 1967” by Yael Dayan

In 2005, the government of Israel uprooted 9,000 Jews from their homes in Gaza.

Seraphic Secret warned that this would turn Gaza into a front-line terrorist reichlet, not an Islamic utopia. This prediction was not a hard call. Only the most delusional leftist can look at PalNazi society and see anything but a culture built on pathological Jew-hatred.

Since 2005, Israel has been forced twice more into war with Gaza to halt the barrage of rockets aimed at civilian targets in the land of Israel.

The Border: How Obama Holds the American People Hostage

Marxist meets Marxist; Obama and Hugo Chavez, 2009.

Marxist meets Marxist; Obama and Hugo Chavez, 2009.

An discussion/argument I keep hearing goes like this:

Obama is a hardcore leftist, thus all his failed policies fail on purpose in order to sow chaos and create an emergency that, according to Obama—and every two-bit banana republic El Presidente—demands forceful action. In short: what seems to be managerial ineptitude is a cover for further power grabs.

The other side of the argument is that Obama and his army of bureaucrats are in over their heads, a Praetorian guard of Marxist ideologues who wallow in classroom theory, but have zero experience in the real world of cause and effect.

This either/or argument misses the larger truth.
