There is a myth that the Jews run the world, or Hollywood at least, and that is why so many celebrities support Israel. Well, not hardly, but the following is a list of gentile celebrities who support Israel. This list is by no means complete but it is a start. If anyone seeing this wants to add to the list, or contest a name on it, please let me know.
Despite England’s experiences during World War II and her current informal “occupation” by her own brand of deadly Islamists, The Guardian’s views are neither civilized nor rational. In his column, Gaza: this shameful injustice will only end if the cost of it rises, Seurnas Milne has a willful misinterpretation of the events in the Middle East. His column is laden with stark hatred and lies, and he clearly champions a policy that supports the Hamas Covenant, a Charter that calls for the eventual creation of the 58th Islamic state in “Palestine,” and the obliteration or dissolution of the only homeland for the Jewish people – as well as the annihilation of the Jewish people worldwide.
The Guardian is often factually inaccurate, as its writers insist on their own type of equity for what amounts to a verbal pogrom against the Jewish state - but not against tyrannical regimes. However, even ISNA (Islamic Society of North America), Syrian American Medical Society, Syrian Relief and Development, Muslim Public Affairs Council and Islamic Relief USA recently condemned Syria’s chemical weapons attack of her people (including women and children). When it was revealed that at least 108 people, including 49 children under age 10, were slaughtered in the 15-month Houla massacre, it was explained as acceptable that tyrants kill children to intimidate the opposition!
There was no demand for equal justice when Mahmoud Abbas’s terrorists slaughtered the 11 Israeli athletes in 1972 Munich, and no demand for vengeance for the beheading of Jewish-American journalist, Daniel Pearl. They expressed no shock at the injustice of Israel’s exchange of 1027 terrorist prisoners for the life of one kidnapped Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit, or when terrorists slaughtered the Fogel family or the three Israel teenagers. They maintained their silence throughout the firing of thousands of rockets into Israel from Gaza, never demanding balance with an equal number of rockets from Israel to Gaza.
To define this further, Israel follows the rules of war and targets military combatants (after warning Palestinian citizens to escape Israel’s retaliation), whereas Hamas intentionally targets civilians, deliberately focusing on children, thereby breaking two rules of war – killing their own and Israel’s children. The media cry that there weren’t enough Jewish children killed to match the number of Muslim children, and they want to blame only Israel for the death of Muslim children even when Hamas is entirely responsible. All the wars were begun with Islamic attacks and, by international law, Israel has every right to defend herself – her boundaries and her citizens.
The media offer little coverage when the Islamic culture encourages children to detonate themselves among Israelis, and when parents celebrate the occasions with candy, enjoying Hamas’s gifts, and naming town squares after their expendable offspring. And although sharia law denounces music and dance, it appears to be acceptable to revel in the streets for their martyred sons and daughters.
The hostile Guardian and similar news sources raise their voices only for the number of Palestinian children killed, although the BBC has been awakened to new evidence that numbers received from Gaza are quite skewed. Israel provides shelters for their children; Gazans provide shelter for their rockets, and endanger children for an increased body count for public sympathy. And while Israel’s hypocritical enemies, including Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi, call Hamas a humanitarian organization, the West continues its funding for inhumane reasons – such as for the extensive system of tunnels dug for access to Israeli children’s schools and kibbutzim for an impending hands-on carnage.
Land acquisition is a major priority for the Islamic agenda, and the Qur’an allows deception, lies, and human sacrifice for the cause. Islam also relies on the humanity and basic decency of Judeo-Christian people and nations to disbelieve what we find unfathomable. Jihad exists in many ways, from Israel to Africa, Scandinavia, Spain, Germany, China, America and England. Few journalists are fit to report accurately or are willing to accept the truth for themselves. None of these host countries, including Israel, is an “occupier,” yet each is an invaded land, and we should be defending our homeland NOW, or be prepared to relinquish our identity and culture to Islamic oppression.
As in the greater Middle East, where previous peoples have been annihilated or Islamized, they could not adequately defend themselves and were conquered by Islam. Israel can, will, and has every right to do so under international law.
Jihad training begins with treating children as chattel and indoctrinating them at an early age to hate the kaffir (the "rejecter” of Allah). Pedophilia, demoralizing and frightening to the children, is legalized, and “thighing” infants to raping young children” will continue in the Muslim world as long as “Allah” encourages men to be owners instead of husbands and fathers. Sodomizing a baby is halal (permitted under Sharia law).
Pre-adolescent marriage is codified in Qur’an 65:4, and women are held hostage under law, subject to severe punishment, and it is under these circumstances that children are raised to be fearful and subservient to their master. Polygamy also affects children, immersing them in a self-pitying, resentful, victim mentality. If the reader would like to delve further into this depraved culture, please read Nonie Darwish’s Cruel and Usual Punishment.
The primarily unschooled, illiterate majority, who foresee no self-fulfillment or escape, become hair-trigger-angry young men who hate their lot in life, are brainwashed and compelled to do as bidden, and prepared to die for the cause. In so doing, they see a way out – an escape to tranquility and the promise of sexual pleasures in Paradise.
These are but a few of the reasons that create an unfeeling underclass of warriors who have no sympathy for children, but will use them for their purpose. Keeping children near explosives and bombs will ultimately lead to an increased body count, just as using child labor for tunnel excavation resulted in the loss of more than 160. Not only are women and children placed on rooftops of targeted buildings (those from which rockets are fired into Israel) and used as human shields, but a recent video showed jihadists hanging small, terrified, crying boys from a targeted building’s fence. And if these children do survive their childhood, they will become the next generation of damaged, robotic killers who feel no compassion and are inured to pain and bloodshed.
This is a horrific example of child abuse to which the media turn a blind eye, and the U.N. fails to address. Rather, the immoral go out of their way to blame the Israel Defense Forces for harming women and children who are forced into such circumstances. The media fail us, just as the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) predicted. Journalists like Milne, whether cowardly or deceptive, would become an acquiescent, obedient djimmi, a “useful idiot” that represents the Islamic-fascist mentality, willing to accept caliphate domination in the interest of hate or “peace.”
A recently discovered Hamas manual verifies its method of urban warfare. “Introduction to the City War” extols the benefits of civilian deaths and admits that Israel tries to avoid them. This is not a Hamas war against ”occupiers,” but an Islamic war to annihilate the entire state of Israel, against which Israel must continue to defend until there is unconditional surrender. It is also a reminder that this is WAR – a global war - against all who will not accept Islamic Sharia law. And, if the media continue its stance against Israel, and continue to look away from Islam’s slaughter of Christians, they may well be designing a future for themselves under the very cruel and severe Sword of Allah, from which no conquered nation has ever recovered.
“Show neither partiality to the weak nor deference to the mighty, but judge your fellow men justly.” Leviticus 19:15 New American Bible
I enjoyed watching KISS rocker Gene Simmons on Fox News’ Outnumbered yesterday speaking about a collegiate coed that sought to carry a firearm on campus to protect herself against a stalker. Mr. Simmons’ implication was to impart “street justice” and for her to grab the support of a few athletes and literally let baseball bats do the talking regarding the criminal aggressor. That is, perhaps, a shattered kneecap would do far more to cease the aggression than relying upon the assistance of overworked and underfunded police agencies. Amen.
I am, by all fair accounts, the product of turn-of-the-last-century street fighters and gang members of the Detroit area with a pedigree involving the Purple Gang (of Jailhouse Rock notoriety) and pre-Eminem Eight Mile Road conflicts. It would be, perhaps, legitimate that this foundation of urban violence would lead me into a life of depravity and violence and you would be correct in arguing this point were it not for two distinct ideals. First, my ancestors engaged in illicit practices for survival within a land decidedly hostile to newcomers, particularly those of a “foreign” faith and language. Secondly, this ancient religion of immigrants served as a foundation to protect the innocent and underdogs of society. For example, when my family beat up a police officer, it had little to do with flagrant violation of the law. Rather, it was a direct retaliation against a corrupt law enforcement official that brutally beat a hungry and cold resident who was simply stealing coal to keep his family warm during the dead of winter. Sometimes life requires survival to the point of abandoning civilized behavior in favor of extending civilization.
All of this leads me to the present conflict between “Palestinian” Arabs and the modern State of Israel. On paper, the Arabs would “appear” to have all the makings necessary for “street justice” of the Simmons and Godlewski family clan variety: poor families, lack of food, miserable living conditions, local violence, etc. However, again, there are distinctions to be observed. Whereas my ancestors arrived into a location that hated immigrants and foreign religions, the Arabs of the Levant have largely represented the xenophobic instigators. The Arabs surrounding Israel did not venture from thousands of miles away, proceed through the legalities of an Ellis Island, and then work in the dingy coalmines of a Pennsylvania or factories of a Detroit in order to fit it. For all practical purposes, they emulated the WASPs that sought to deny universal freedom to others not matching their self-ordained rules. In this regard, I can only sympathize with Israel, many of whose citizens emigrated from my family’s native Poland to escape persecution.
The stone monument and viewpoint on the beautiful hill 23 miles south of London Bridge says: In Grateful Remembrance of Leopold Salomons of Norbury Park Who Gave Box Hill To The Nation 1914. It was in danger of being developed and a Jew, Salomons, stepped in. The view is captivating.
This little undramatic action is typical of the Jewish people. Their names appear with predictable regularity with regard to charities and matters of social concern.
To my Jewish friends, for nearly two thousand years you were dispersed amongst us and yet in all that time there is not one record of State insurrection. Wherever you have set up home you have sought to become part of the host society insofar as that society permitted you.
There are remarkably few Jewish names in the annals of criminality. You have served your home countries in all wars, serving with honour and loyalty. Wherever you have been accepted, prosperity has followed. You have enriched us in the Arts, particularly Music. Likewise, in the area of Science and Medicine.
It may not please you but without you Christianity would be Saviourless. The story which I related above about Leopold Salomons was hardly earth-shattering but multiply it many times and your influence on our society is insistent and undeniable. True, this influence has occasionally been negative, but that is the exception, not the rule. When we forbade you from owning land, you became doctors and lawyers, when we barred you from the professions, you excelled at trade. You have been attacked, seasonally robbed of your hard-earned life-savings, your books destroyed, your holidays banned, and your response was to pack your few sticks and to gather what could be salvaged from the ruin and start again elsewhere, from scratch. Occasionally we didn't allow you to take the sticks, they too were ours. It was the unnameable Nazi who said that you were to be left only your eyes, with which to weep.
We curse you to "Go home to Israel!" And, when you are there, we cry, "Get out of Israel!" In Israel you have had to hermetically seal yourselves in, a barrier to the side, a dome above, and sonar below, away from the bullies and the haters. The situation is a crying shame. And you endure. For you are the people that cannot die. All others pass away, except the eternal Jew. We may despise you, be jealous of you, misunderstand you and narrow our eyes at you, or we may love you and admire you, we may care about your happiness and your future. But, ultimately, it will make no difference to your destiny, you march to an unheard tune, a sad and merry tune that the wind catches and is gone, perplexing to us Gentiles. You are more than us and less than us. 'More' because you are dreamers on your way from the fiery Mount where none of us have been, and a noble dream is priceless. 'Less' because your high calling is not yet realised, in fact, it seems farther off today than it ever did. It eludes your grasp. Hence you are more incomplete than the rest of us, there's something unfinished about you, but that too is your glory and will not be taken from you.
You will never rest until we all rest. And we will not find rest until you do. We pass you on the road with a nod and secret smile and then turn to watch you go. The wandering Jew, clutching an unforgettable vision. I have a request for you, you who have been hounded and torn through all time and every place and have made it miraculously, into the 21st century free of self pity and possessing a loving concern for others, even your tormentors.
My request is, will you accept our apology Before God, our God, comes to us and asks "How did you treat my people?"
Re: .(Penelope Cruz, husband Javier Bardem write open letter calling Israel’s actions ‘genocide’; NY Daily News
When people step out of their sphere of familiarity and take on a cause with a background of sheer ignorance, they just can’t connect los puntos (the dots)! Ay, que lastima (what a pity)! Such is the case of Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, director Pedro Almodovar and others.
These “voices of justice,” 100 Spanish activists who have just awakened from a stupor, speak out for the poor Palestinian children, these flores (flowers) who are being killed because they are intentionally placed with the rocket launchers by their fellow jihadists, so that the body count may be increased to sway public opinion.
The Muslim women and children are commanded to stay in their homes, mosques, schools and hospitals that contain the missiles and launchers. They are told not to heed the warning leaflets that Israel sends to give them ample time to leave the war zone. No shelters for them; Hamas uses those millions of dollars in humanitarian funds for tunnel construction and weapon purchase and storage. Even CNN covered the news about the tunnels, the tunnels that were built with the help of many children, resulting in the death of at least 130. Sr and Sra Bardem missed this unconscionable inhumanity.
What of the Israeli flowers, the three Jewish students who were kidnapped and murdered? Not a whisper from these distraught entertainers. What of the first rocket discharged – from Gaza? Not a murmur. What of the thousands of rockets fired from Gaza? No outcry from the Spanish for the Hebraicos. They will not acknowledge the post-traumatic stress syndrome of the Israeli children (Jews, Christians and Muslim), or the depression of the citizens’ living in constant terror or the increased number of miscarriages. The blinders they wear are all-encompassing.
These poor misinformed believe that the blockade prevents entry of foodstuffs and other goods from entering Gaza, when nothing could be further from the truth. The Turkish flotilla was blocked because they contained weapons and explosives; they were shown on television. Gazans live quite well and have ample food and clothing and supplies sent by the UN, Europe and America. Israel supplies their water, electricity and much more. They don’t have to work for any of this, and the deliveries come by truck through Israel. These handouts have been in place for Palestinians for decades, more than for any other people. Muslims deny Jews' entry into their lands, but want entry into Israel (for carrying out jihad) when they are not Israeli citizens and when their Islamic doctrinal texts demand death to the Jews (and Christians). Why is there a blind spot? Israel recently opened a hospital for Palestinians in need of better healthcare. Was this ever done anywhere else by victims for their attackers? Israel is one of the most humane and caring civilizations on Earth, and may be judged by their deeds as first responders in worldwide crises and their treatment of patients regardless of identity.
The French prime minister recently announced his recognition of the scourge of Islam, and vowed to fight anti-Semitism, warning of the connection between anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism (what’s happening in Israel today). The Spanish can’t make the connection. They have forgotten what happened to their ancestors, when the Mohammedans conquered Spain in 711 AD and taxed, subjugated, and mistreated Christians and Jews until the Reconquista in 1492. Do these entertainers realize that the Muslims have returned to Spain and that this new invasion is well underway to becoming conquest?
The Spanish have forgotten the stories of the Visigoth king, whose head was severed with the Sword of Allah, impaled on a pole, and paraded through town. Rather, these “stars” would encourage the Islamists to succeed in Israel and, emboldened, continue their destruction through the rest of the Middle East and Africa, progressing through Europe and the Americas, until the global caliphate is established.
If Hamas were to cease fire, there would be peace. If Israel were to cease fire, there would be Jewish bloodshed, as there has been since the beginning of Islam, and at the moment Israel was voted a sovereign state. The Palestinians have created a propagandist tale of Israeli occupation, also untrue. Israel left Gaza in 2005. The Palestinians are the squatters and Hamas is the occupier in the land that was designated for the Jews in the Ancient Bible and by the Balfour Declaration (1920), the League of Nations (1922), and formally by the United Nations (1948).
Did these heroes of the silver screen describe the 23,519 attacks by Muslims, since 9/11, as genocide? Or the 2500 Syrians killed during Ramadan alone? Where is the conscience of these artistes who cannot grasp that Islam is against them, their craft, and their children? Islamic law does not permit their films or welcome their talents. However, perhaps these talents are truly not worthy of veneration if they cannot even connect some very simple dots.
The 9th memorial of the Disengagement Plan from Gaza (2005) in which Israel unilaterally withdrew, dispossessed and destroyed its Jewish communities in the Gaza Strip will be marked this coming Thursday, July 31, 2014. That controversial historical event remains relevant to this day as rockets and underground terrorist tunnels from Gaza target Israel.
A new book review on the novel Grains Of Sand The Fall Of Neve Dekalim has come to my attention. Might you run it? I've attached a copy of the book cover for your use if it's a go.
"...Thanks to this book I could enter and experience what life was like there. I connected with Efrat worrying about her test grades and studying for the bagruts. I could relate to her being frightened from projectiles because here in Ashdod we’ve also been hit by rockets – ..."
* This paper is dedicated to the memory of Sara Ann Smart (nee Doss), 7/25/1951 to 12/13/2003 and represents the personal views of the author and does not reflect any organization, business, or affiliate of Mr. Godlewski.
To say that the world remains a very dangerous place remains the understatement of the millennium. Where once the world worried about tyrannies, despotism, omnipotent bureaucracies, radicalism, and terrorism as largely segregated subjects, 2014 highlights the morphing of these threats into both a homogenous and hegemonic adversary aligned against freedom loving peoples everywhere. Nevertheless, despite the broad reach of these threats, their existence focuses upon two distinct targets: the United States of America and Israel. Any periphery is simply considered collateral – and, therefore, highly acceptable – damage by those seeking to attack either nation.
Before we begin to analyze the respective victims of this globalization of evil, we must first address the intentions of that Evil itself. For its role, Israel represents an abomination for the Arabic peoples. Hamas (Harakat al-Muqawama al-Islamiya – also Arabic for “zeal”) “leadership rejects peace with Israel on religious, nationalistic, and ideological grounds” and fully believes that the land usually referred to as Palestine remains “consecrated for future Moslem generations until Judgment Day.” Other Islamist groups, such as Hezbollah (“Party of God”), were formed for intentions far greater than attacking the modern state of Israel: “In its manifesto, Hezbollah blames the United States for all the region’s catastrophes, describing it as the foremost enemy of all the Muslims of the world.”
Because America and Israel represent literally the opposite sides of the size equation, their potential futures remain diametrically opposed. For Israel, the Islamic jihadists see only the complete destruction of the Jewish State. For the United States, they hope to bleed the slumbering giant sufficiently enough to vacate its attention on the greater Middle East until they can literally turn America into a land of dhimmis and appeasers. Fortunately, however, each nation rests upon the belief that it remains under the protection of a covenant with God. This notion provides each country with a sense of profound duty to protect its citizenry and the relative freedoms that each nation enjoys.
We can now begin to define the rationalization of each nation’s defense against radicalized Islam and those communities of nations that remain either anti-Semitic or anti-American in nature.
I make no apology for my title. The Jews have much to answer for, especially the Jews of Israel – and there’s no letting up.
I write from England, this precious stone set in the silver sea, where our forefathers were nourished on the blessed freedoms of a robust paganism. We relished our ever-inventive superstitions and gloried in unbridled passion. We made our choice between 14 gods, worshipped devils, and were in lifelong bondage to an inexorable fate known sinisterly as Wyrd. Standards there were, agreeably low.
Sure, hopeless ruffians were we, shackled to a changeless decree of the gods, but we felt mostly good about our brute lives and ourselves. We were all in the same boat, no better and no worse than the next bloke.
However, like the distant rumblings of an approaching rainstorm, the Jewish Messiah’s teachings had reached our shores in the 1st century, and their voice was growing louder. The Jewish Messiah and the Jewish Bible would become our nemesis and break open our little world.
What followed is well documented and one may Google for the relevant facts, but, for us, it meant that we could no longer enjoy the life of unbridled paganism. The bar of morality had been raised. It was a rude awakening; our stone of shelter was overturned.
Now I am reminded of a friend back in the 70s, who was employed for a few days in a factory that manufactured long, electro-plated metal rods. Turning out nearly 300 of these things every day, he was approached by the Foreman. "Look 'ere, son you're working too 'ard. The rest never do more’n 250 and you're makin’ ‘em look bad. Before we know it, everybody will be expected to do 300. Now, toe the line, there's a good lad." He was in no forgiving mood.
Similarly, are we seriously expected to forgive the Jews for turning out more ethics and ever-higher standards of morality than the rest of us? Ideas like love your neighbour as yourself, in place of the good old traditional do it to him before he does it to you ethic. It takes only one do-gooder to make the rest of us look bad. We might be living under a stone, but it's our stone.
20 centuries have passed and we’ve managed, with varying degrees of success, to not merely get used to this higher morality, but also to convince ourselves that we thought of it in the first place and that it had nothing to do with the Jews, their Messiah and their Bible. But prior to this Jewish education we were like Caliban in the unwholesome fen, satisfied with his water with berries in't. Ah, the savage at liberty.
We know who’s to blame for this, the Jews. What were they trying to do, for Pete's sake, bring heaven to Earth? Behold this dreamer cometh. If not for the Jews, God would most likely have remained in heaven, His Place, and never come to Earth to make us uncomfortable, by awakening in us a desire for more than berries in water.
Heaven is God's and the Earth would be ours, if not for the Jews. Unforgiveable.
Now, back in 1948, between 400,000 and 700,000 Arabs vacated their homes on the advice of their warring brethren from neighbouring lands. But, between 1948-72, 820,000 Jews were forcibly driven from their homes in the Arab countries, 200,000 finding refuge in Europe and North America, most of the others, in the State of Israel. The Muslims have sucked at the breast of the UN for 66 years whilst the Jews, from Day One, were fed and sheltered at the expense of their fellow Jews. And where are they now? Look for them and their children in the halls of academia, on the stage, in the hospitals, in the hi-tech milieu and in the Apollo Space Shuttle. Those vexatious Jews have pride and dignity! They make the rest of us feel bad whilst the Arabs are enough to make any of us feel good about ourselves. There was a glimmer of light when I heard the State of Israel excoriated for being apartheid. Ah, a serious flaw, I thought, but was disappointed, for the Arabs of Israel have full citizenship and enjoy equal rights with their Jewish neighbours, in fact the Arabs of neighbouring countries receive free medical care in Jewish hospitals.
And, as if this were not enough, in response to thousands of rockets lobbed from Gaza to Israel, Jews are putting their own young people at risk in a ground offensive in order to spare the lives of possibly innocent Palestinians. What’s more, they actually drop thousands of leaflets to warn the Gazan citizenry to flee the area of an impending attack. Then, they fire a rubber warning missile to knock on the roof five minutes before the real one. Finally, if the women and children have not departed, the Israelis call off the strike.
Furthermore, Israel has opened an emergency clinic near the battle zone to treat injured......Palestinians! This includes a gynecology unit. Isn’t that childbirth?!
Am I dreaming? Somebody pinch me.
During the bombing of Dresden in 1945, it took a mere 3 days, to drop 3,900 tons of high explosives and incendiary (none of them rubber), destroying two-and-a-half square miles of the city centre and killing between 22,700 and 25,000 people, mainly civilians. Compare this with the 11 days that the Israelis have taken to kill 274 people, despite their having more powerful weaponry than we had in the 40s. The Israeli restraint is downright perplexing and irritating to the hypocrites in the UN.
Did we warn Dresden? No, of course not! Was a dummy hydrogen bomb dropped in advance of the real one? No! Did we burn people, blow them to smithereens, starve them? Yes. And we didn’t issue an apology to Germany or Japan for disproportionate warfare! War was war, and we insisted on ending it sooner rather than later.
How do you respond to an enemy that vows to destroy you and your way of life, rape your wife and enslave your children? You kill 'em, that's what you do! And because we were all doing it, nobody felt bad about it.
But these irksome Jews, with their raising the bar ever higher, are attempting to civilise war itself, resisting the temptation to carpet bomb and visit hell on the enemy once and for all, relinquishing the crucial element of surprise by leafleteering and calling Palestinians on their cell phones first.
And the torn metal from the missiles that land in Israel? Transformed into works of art to adorn your mantlepiece. The Jews seek to bring order and civilisation right up to the gates of Gehenna itself. If it were possible, hell itself would be abolished by these sons of David.
Col. Kemp, a British officer who served in all the major conflicts between 1977-2006, said of the Israelis, "Based on my knowledge and experience, I can say this: during operation Cast Lead, the Israeli Defense Forces did more to safeguard the rights of civilians in the combat zones than any other army in the history of warfare."
The Jews are again leading the way to higher ground, making us uncomfortable with our double standards and our odious hypocrisy.
God bless 'em.

It’s called Operation Protective Edge leaving citizens throughout the country living on a knife-edge. Yesterday, I was walking through the Nitzan caravilla site on my way to work in Ashdod when the siren blared. I made haste to the closest government provided sewer pipe for use on such occasions. Tell me, what would you do seated all alone, sirens blaring, nearby ‘booms’ heard? I took a selfie!
It’s called Operation Protective Edge and the sound of incoming rockets sets people’s teeth on edge. I have received lesson cancellation after cancellation as adult students need to be at home to comfort their young children or as families seek protection further inland until the situation ‘calms down.’ The dispossession and destruction of Gush Katif broke me. Yet sometimes the strongest vessels are the broken ones. I’m on the go when students call to confirm we have a lesson.
It’s called Operation Protective Edge and we will not be edged out from our daily routine. We will go to work and carry on. Lately I've seen the interior of students’ home bomb shelters. While most double as a bedroom, I was most favorably impressed by the one in the parental bedroom. It doubles as a well organized walk-in closet. Who’d have thought? I was in it twice yesterday. For those of you building a home, this is something to go over with your architect. Sorry, no pic.
An Egypt-backed cease-fire between Israel and Hamas fell apart Tuesday as rocket attacks from Gaza continued against Israel. As CNN reports, 'The rocket attacks from Hamas militants in Gaza never ceased, Israeli officials said. For its part, Israel refrained from airstrikes for about six hours before announcing it was resuming the attacks.'
Tensions were ignited in June when three Israeli teenagers, one with American citizenship and all seminary students, were kidnapped while hitchhiking in the West Bank and killed. They were kidnapped on June 12 and their bodies were discovered June 30. Within days, Israel arrested more than 300 Palestinians, many of them members of Hamas. Hamas warned Israel it had "opened up the gates of hell" with its actions.
On the night the boys' bodies were found, a barrage of rockets were launched from Gaza at Israel and Israeli warplanes carried out numerous air strikes in Gaza.
Israel can't win in the media. However, they could win against the terrorists who attack them if they had a little support from their 'friends'. They have no friend in Barack Hussein Obama.
