SHOCKA! Missiles Found In UN School For The Second Time!

Huh. How’d that happen?

For the second time in less than a week, rockets have been found in a school in Gaza operated by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, the body said.

“Today, in the course of the regular inspection of its premises, UNRWA discovered rockets hidden in a vacant school in the Gaza Strip,” the organization said in a statement issued Tuesday. “As soon as the rockets were discovered, UNRWA staff were withdrawn from the premises, and so we are unable to confirm the precise number of rockets. The school is situated between two other UNRWA schools that currently each accommodate 1,500 internally displaced persons.”

As it did the last time around when missiles were found in a school it operates, UNRWA said it “strongly and unequivocally condemns the group or groups responsible for this flagrant violation of the inviolability of its premises under international law.”

UNRWA, the UN agency charged with overseeing humanitarian efforts in Gaza, said it immediately “informed the relevant parties and is pursuing all possible measures for the removal of the objects in order to preserve the safety and security of the school.” The organization again pledged to launch a “comprehensive investigation into the circumstances surrounding this incident.”

An investigation? Excellent! That’ll do the trick.

Abbas Family Leaves Judea and Samaria For Jordan

Does this mean that the terrorists in Judea and Samaria are gearing up?

Members of the family of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas have secretly left Ramallah for Jordan, according to the online newspaper Rai Al-Youm.

“For the first time and secretly, all the members of President Abbas’s family have left to their residence in Amman,” the report said.

It said that Abbas’s wife and grandchildren were among the family members who left Ramallah recently.

The newspaper said that Mohamed Shehadeh, who is in charge of Abbas’s security detail, has decided to beef up security around the PA president’s office and residence in Ramallah.

The departure of Abbas’s family and the tight security measures came in response to growing resentment among Palestinians with the PA president and his policies in wake of the current war between Israel and Hamas.

Over the past two weeks, many Palestinians have accused Abbas of failing to display strong leadership in light of the Israeli military operation. Some have gone as far as accusing him of “collusion” with Israel and Egypt.

I bet they start firing rockets from Ramallah.

Move Over, Grannies

I siad below that Arab terrorists in Gaza are shooting from behind the skirts of grannies.

I wish to apologize here and now to any grannies who may have been offended:

Wounded soldiers have given shocking testimony regarding Hamas’ use of young children as human shields.

Parents of wounded soldiers spoke to Kol Yisrael on Tuesday and shared some of the disturbing stories they had heard from their sons. They said soldiers have repeatedly seen young children in Sheijaya, Gaza, be sent out into the streets with guns to try to attack IDF troops.

One parent reported that terrorists had run at IDF soldiers with a gun in one hand and a baby in the other, apparently in hopes that the soldiers would see the child and hold their fire. If soldiers fired, the parent added, the child’s death could be used as propaganda against Israel.

“They’re continuing the same trick of using children as human shields, just as they did in Operation Cast Lead,” one father said. Women are used as human shields as well, he added.

Those like John Kerry and and Ban-ki Moon (and our president) who condemn Israel for war crimes, do so knowing full well the truth of the matter. But they want to hang at the Kool Kidz table.

Part Of ObamaCare Illegal

President vows to ignore ruling

In a potentially crippling blow to Obamacare, a federal appeals court panel declared Tuesday that government subsidies worth billions of dollars that helped 4.7 million people buy insurance on HealthCare.gov are illegal.
The 2-1 ruling said such subsidies can be granted only to people who bought insurance in an Obamacare exchange run by an individual state or the District of Columbia—not on the federally run exchange HealthCare.gov. The ruling relied on a close reading of the Affordable Care Act.

“Section 36B plainly makes subsidies available in the Exchanges established by states,” wrote Senior Circuit Judge Raymond Randolph in his majority opinion in the case known as Halbig v. Burwell, where he was joined by Judge Thomas Griffith.

“We reach this conclusion, frankly, with reluctance. At least until states that wish to can set up their own Exchanges, our ruling will likely have significant consequences both for millions of individuals receiving tax credits through federal Exchanges and for health insurance markets more broadly.”

In his dissent, Judge Harry Edwards, who called the case a “not-so-veiled attempt to gut” Obamacare, wrote that the judgment of the majority “portends disastrous consequences.”

Indeed, the 72-page decision threatens to unleash a cascade of effects that could seriously compromise Obamacare’s goals of compelling people to get health insurance, and helping them afford it.

White House will ignore:

The Obama administration said it will ask the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to reverse the panel’s decision, which for now does not have the rule of law.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the ruling—for now—”does not have any practical impact” on premium subsidies issued to HealthCare.gov enrollees now.”

“We are confident” that the ruling will be overturned, Earnest said. “We are confident in the legal position we have . . . the Department of Justice will litigate these claims through the federal court system.”

Earnest said “it was obvious” that Congress intended subsidies, or tax credits, to be issued to Obamacare enrollees regardless of what kind of exchange they used to buy insurance.

Our Tin-Pot-Dictator-In-Chief Has Spoken!

Also, Professor Larry Tribe of Harvard has this to say:

President Obama’s old Harvard Law professor, Laurence Tribe, said that he “wouldn’t bet the family farm” on Obamacare’s surviving the legal challenges to an IRS rule about who is eligible for subsidies that are currently working their way through the federal courts.

“I don’t have a crystal ball,” Tribe told the Fiscal Times. “But I wouldn’t bet the family farm on this coming out in a way that preserves Obamacare.”

Terrorists Land Missile Near Ben Gurion Airport

Flights in being cancelled

Delta Air Lines is canceling all flights to Israel until further notice after a rocket landed near Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport.

A Delta Boeing 747 from New York was flying over the Mediterranean headed for Tel Aviv on Tuesday when it turned around and flew to Paris instead. Flight 468 had 273 passengers and 17 crew on board.
U.S. Airways also suspended service to Israel Tuesday.
White House spokesman said the Federal Aviation Administration had not as yet not issued a “NOTAM,” or Notice to Airmen, which would warn airlines of hazards along a flight route or at a destination.
Israeli police said a rocket fired from Gaza landed near the airport, damaging a house and wounding one Israeli.

Unfortunately, I think that Israel needs to go to all out war. They can’t have this kind of thing happening, and the Palestinians seem intent on making it happen. They need to retake Gaza.

Arab EMTs

When the going gets tough, the terrorists scatter like so many cockroaches:

But as pathetically humorous as it is to watch the little Arab rats scurry and hide, it’s nowhere near as pathetically humorous as watching the little Arab rats play-acting:

Hee-hee. Pallywood really ought to sell tickets for these comic shorts. They’re blockbuster.

There are a few among the dead whose deaths I’m sure I regret. A few. But if Hamass fires off missiles and mortars from behind the skirts of Arab grannies, Israel not only can fire back, it must. Chalk up all deaths to Hamass.

Arab Terrorists In IDF Uniforms Attempt To Infiltrate Through Tunnel

They each have their 72 virgins now

This morning’s tunnel infiltration by two Hamas squads underlines the threat posed to the South, OC Southern Command, Maj.-Gen. Sami Turgeman, said Monday.

Dozens of terrorists in military uniform emerged from a tunnel, and were successfully stopped by the military, Turgeman added.

Uncovering the tunnels is a complex and challenging task, requiring intelligence and technology, he added.

The IDF’s work in destroying tunnels, both inside Gaza and cross-border tunnels, “is disturbing the enemy,” which spent years digging them,Turgeman said.

Two terrorist attack cells entered Israel from northern Gaza via a smuggling tunnel on Monday morning.

They were identified by IDF lookouts, and an aircraft was dispatched to intercept them. The first cell was struck from the air, and ten of its members were killed.

The second cell fired an anti-tank missile at a military vehicle.

The Shin Bet sent an alert to the IDF hours before the attack, warning of intentions of terrorists in northern Gaza to infiltrate the country.

This is interesting on so many levels. First of all, many of us have forgotten that Yasir Arafat kept boxes of IDF uniforms in his compound in Ramallah. Very peace-y reasons for that, I’m sure. So this tactic has been there forever, but combined with tunnels it is even more dangerous.

Secondly, Shin Bet (internal security, sort of like the FBI I suppose) warned that this was going to happen. This means that there are some not-insane Palestinians who are informing. This fall, in the US, the documentary, The Green Prince, will be shown. Everyone, everyone should see that film. In it you will see how the son of the Hamas commander in Ramallah decided that Hamas was evil and proceeded to help stop suicide terror attacks during the second intifada (guerrilla war). It is fascinating. We should have bloodthirsty liberal movie night and all go to see it in our respective cities and then talk about it here.

Now That The Jews Are Out Of Iraq, Time To Eliminate The Christians

The population of Christians has dropped by more than a million in the past decade

In a region where Christians predate Muslims by centuries, over one million Christians have been killed or have had to flee because of jihadi persecution, while America is basically standing by and watching. This is the sad news that Breitbart’s National Security Editor and one of the world’s leading experts on asymmetric warfare, Dr. Sebastian Gorka, brought to Breitbart News Saturday, hosted by Editor in Chief Alex Marlow on Sirius XM Patriot Radio.
Dr. Gorka explained that “in the last 48 hours, ISIS, which is now called the Islamic State in Mosul, has painted the letter “N” for Nazarene on the houses of all the surviving Christians in the city. ISIS has basically given an ultimatum to all the Christians left: You can either flee or convert to Islam, or we will kill you.”
Gorka points out that, over the last 20 years, America has stood up around the world to save Muslims. “Whether it was to save the Muslims in Bosnia or the Albanians, Kosovars, and Muslims in Serbia, it is now time for a humanitarian operation to save the remaining Christians in Iraq,” he said. “It is time for the American people and our representatives to do something for our co-religionists remaining in the Middle East.”
Marlow observed that the blatant religious cleansing is horrifying and asked Gorka: “Why is it that the mainstream press is not interested in the story?” Gorka first responded by saying “Let’s face it, this is a Christian version of the Holocaust and nothing less.”

Believe it or not, NPR had a story on this today. I can’t imagine why this isn’t getting more media attention.

Tartaned and Feathered

It’s almost too lame to be outrageous:

Dozens of world-renowned artists have called on the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to cancel the participation of a show staged by the Jerusalem-based Incubator Theater, due to the Israeli operation in Gaza.

The production, “The City,” is a film noir-style hip-hop opera. It was invited to perform at the Underbelly venue in the Scottish capital from July 30 till August 25.

The petition was signed by 50 leading arts figures, including national poet Liz Lochhead, writer Alasdair Gray, playwright David Greig and theater directors Ben Harrison, Scottish media reported over the weekend.

“We the undersigned … write to you to protest against your programming of a show entitled ‘The City,’ by the Israeli company Incubator Theater, during the forthcoming Edinburgh Festival Fringe,” reads the letter, which was organized by theater critic and writer Mark Brown.

“The current, brutal assault by Israel upon the people of Gaza, which is an appalling collective punishment, underlines the seriousness of your error in cooperating with a company which is funded by the Ministry of Culture of the State of Israel.”

Cancel it for being a “film noir-style hip-hop opera”, by all means. But for being Jewish?

And to describe the effort to end Arab terror from Gaza as a “brutal assault” and a “collective punishment” is a stretch not even Roger Waters and Alice Walker could limber themselves up to make. Not even a sniff of the three murdered Jewish teens or the hundreds of missiles fired?

“The State of Israel uses the international ventures of its artists to attempt to lend itself a sense of cultural legitimacy and to distract attention from the brutality of its illegal occupation.

How sneaky of them! So like the Jews, don’t you think? But what “illegal occupation” do they speak of? Israel left Gaza nine years ago, and persistent shelling since is how they’ve been repaid.

It’s almost unfair to let these dimwits speak for themselves. I’d much rather quote the Israelis:

Incubator Theater’s founder and director, Arik Eshet, said in response: “We have nothing to be ashamed of. We are Israelis, and whether we like it or not, it puts us in the position of ambassadors. But treating Israeli artists as government agents is ridiculous.

“Israel is a censorship-free democratic state, and one cannot say that the Israeli theater and art represent the government. This is nonsense which at best stems from ignorance. I have invited the letter’s initiator to engage in a dialogue, but they are not interested because they are convinced they hold the absolute truth.

“This letter was signed by artists and intellectuals who claim to sanctify human rights, but what does that mean when, in practice, they won’t give us the opportunity to fulfill the right to freedom of expression? It’s outrageous and infuriating. Artistic work should be a place for exchanging opinions, but is seems that they don’t believe in that.

“We are proud of who we are and what we do. It’s their right to boycott us, but they are missing a wonderful show.”

You have nothing to be ashamed of because your nation is defending itself from an existential threat to the Jewish people. The “artists and intellectuals” who condemn Israel for that inherently agree with Hamas’ annihilist aims.

How Can One Man Do So Little and Ruin So Much?

The vacationer-in-chief eschewed the Saturday golf outing with the boys to spend the weekend with the fam out at Camp David. You know, hiking, biking, campfires, s’mores.

Golf:

Some of you may be perplexed that there was no report of the usual Saturday golf by President Obama. Have the combined world crises finally forced a full weekend or work?

Well, you can relax. Because he did relax. Saturday golf simply became Sunday golf. Saturday he was at Camp David doing who knows what.

Obama played with three of his usual partners, White House aides Mike Brush, Joe Paulsen, and Marvin Nicholson.

For the record, Sunday was outing number 25 for 2014 – nearly a a rate of once a week, despite the coldest winter in 100 years – and 182 for the Obama presidency.

Actually, he hates Camp David. He almost never goes there.

But there’s one place he does like, especially in the summer:

Untitled

It’s going to be hot tubs, basketball, tennis and golf for the first family this summer, having set plans for a 16-day vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., on a $12 million, 10-acre forested estate on the southwestern corner of the island.

Reports from the Bay State indicate that President Obama and his family will vacation August 9-24 at the 8,100-square foot, beachfront home of a Democratic donor that includes a pool, hot tub, basketball and tennis court.

It will be new digs for the first family, who have summered on tony Martha’s Vineyard every year of Obama’s presidency, except in 2012 when he was running for reelection.

It will be among the longest vacations Obama has taken and four times longer than the average 3.8 day vacation the typical American family takes.

Better him eating lotus on Martha’s Vineyard than furiously erasing the Constitution, line by line, in Washington. Can’t you Vineyard folk make him an honorary citizen or something? Sink the ferry?

Just keep the burgers and ice cream coming!

So, Die

Aggie and I once had this idea of opening up a suicide bombing cafe in the heart of ultra-left Cambridge. Tables would be grouped in concentric circles around a ground zero. There would be a Death and Dismemberment zone, a Shrapnel and Fracture zone, a Blown Eardrum zone, etc. What we lacked in taste and tact, we more than made up for in creativity.

At least compared to these losers:

Untitled

BOSTON – In a corner of America’s oldest public common, some 200 anti-Israel demonstrators held a so-called “die-in” Saturday to protest Israel’s Operation Protective Edge in Gaza.

The two-hour “die-in” on the Boston Common climaxed when protest leaders read the names of Palestinians killed in Gaza since the fighting started. Holding signs printed with each victim’s name and age, demonstrators fell to the concrete as each corresponding name was read.

That wasn’t all to the fun and games:

For the third time since last week, a handful of Jewish students with Israeli flags was surrounded by demonstrators shouting anti-Semitic epithets and – according to two of the students – a tense minute of “pushing and shoving.”

Soon after the “die-in” ended, Brett Loewenstern — a Berklee College of Music student and pro-Israel activist – entered the fray with his boyfriend, Israeli-born Avi Levi.

According to Loewenstern, he and his boyfriend’s combining of an Israeli flag with a rainbow flag – the symbol for gay rights – set off a hailstorm of insults from demonstrators.

Among other things, the shouts included “Jews back to Birkenau” and “Drop dead, you Zionazi whores,” said Loewenstern and other witnesses.

We defend their right to marry, but not their right to express their pro-Israel sentiment.

Chips and Guacamole!

Obama’s foreign policy:

As smoke billowed from the downed Malaysian jetliner in the fields of eastern Ukraine on Thursday, President Obama pressed ahead with his schedule: a cheeseburger with fries at the Charcoal Pit in Delaware, a speech about infrastructure and two splashy fund-raisers in New York City.

The potential for jarring split-screen imagery was clear. Reports of charred bodies and a ground-to-air missile attack from Eastern Europe dominated television screens while photographers snapped pictures of a grinning Mr. Obama holding a toddler at the restaurant. The presidential motorcade was later filmed pulling up to Trump Place Apartments, the Riverside Avenue venue for his first fund-raiser.

Excuse me, New York Times editors, but isn’t “grinning” one of those racist dog whistles? My Bloodthirsty Puppy jumped to her feet when she read that.

Moments after making a grim statement about Ukraine on Friday, the president popped into the East Room, where the first lady, Michelle Obama, was holding a mock state dinner for children to promote her Let’s Move nutrition initiative. “My big thing,” he confessed to the kids, “chips and guacamole!” There was plenty of laughter all around.

Ha-ha-ha-ha! What a card.

On Friday afternoon, Mr. Obama flew to Camp David for the weekend. This week, he plans a three-day fund-raising swing in Seattle and California. White House officials said there were no plans to cancel the trip.

Of course not. They need the money.

Obama can’t afford to change his plans: that might raise expectations that he could or would actually do something. He likens himself to a bear on the loose, and there’s something to that: bears root through dumpsters and garbage cans looking for food. Meanwhile, the Russian bear lumbers across the landscape without opposition.
