Jon Snow obviously feels the Israeli’s should stop, as to stop killing children. Â So that Hamas can continue to fire rockets all day long to kill Israeli 20 year olds. Â Read more »
One thing that has always stood out to me surrounding the past and current conflicts between Israel and the resident Gaza Strip Arabs is the obvious imbalance of firepower. And I’m not talking about military firepower, I am talking about the weapons grade propaganda and compliance from the world media as the Gaza Arabs feed as much misinformation as possible to anyone carrying a camera and microphone.
We’re talking about supposedly reputable sources such as The Telegraph who have boots on the ground in Gaza reporting live to the world. The trouble is they report everything they see without question nor query. And like an infectious disease, it spreads far and wide as news repeaters around the world enable it to reach every citizen without an ounce of scrutiny. Perhaps it is a heat of the moment thing and not intentional in the frantic moments of a live report in a war zone, but is a clear and deliberate act of deceptive propaganda by ‘innocent’ Palestinians, Hamas and any other militant factions in Gaza.

There is no limit to the depravity of Hamas, and it disgusts me that our media continues to cuddle these terrorists and they wreak self-inflicted destruction on their people.
If they aren’t putting children intoÂ theÂ tunnels to die they are executing their own people and trying to blame the Israelis.
Hamas militants killed at least 25 Gazan civilians suspected of collaborating with Israel,Â World Net Daily reported, citing sources close toÂ Hamas and the Islamic Jihad groups.
The sources toldÂ WND that most of the extra-judicial killings of suspected collaborators took place during a brief âhumanitarianâ cease-fire last Thursday. Hamas blamed the killings on Israel saying they took place four days earlier, in Shujaâiya,Â on Gazaâs northern border with Israel.
The murdered Gazans were accused of leading Israeli troops to smuggling tunnels and providing intelligence on Hamasâ infrastructure inside Gazan cities, according to the sources.
According to WND, the sources also said âthe civilian suspects murdered by Hamas were publicly celebrated by Hamas as martyrs killed by the Jewish state.âÂ Read more »
Today kicks off my daily series of posts on the current conflict between Israel and the fenced off terrorist compound known as the Gaza Strip. There will probably be accusations of bias, but for that I make no apology. There is and always has been a clear and obvious bias by the mainstream media in favour of the terrorists, not the “Palestinians” in a general sense as they would have you believe.
The trouble with television media and now social media is the ability for not only awareness, but to manipulate the kinds of people less inclined to think rationally and react emotionally to things they are told or see paraded in front of them on television, supporting and propagating more mass hysteria and outrage against Israel every time they retaliate in defense of their people.
Let’s not forget that this did not start with the kidnapping of 3 Israeli youths. Hamas has been firing rockets into Israel on a weekly basis for several years which the Iron Dome missile defense system has been intercepting all the while the world media remains in ignorance and silence until the straw breaks the camel’s back and Israel decides to fight back.

It is a few years old and some of the sentiments still hold true. Skip through to the english language part.
Israel though ahs learned the battlefield they are on and now dominate social media and Youtube with factual video and details that disprove Hamas lies and propaganda.
A green taliban ratbag sent out a fake email about a company which cost that company $300 million. He walked away without prison time.
In January 2013, a chap calledÂ Jonathan MoylanÂ sent a single email that caused an AU$314m – ÂŁ174m or $295m – dip in a coal company’s value.
The email was a fake press release stating that Whitehaven Coal’s bank, ANZ, had decided not to lend the mining firm the billion or so dollars needed to open a new pit. Read more »
The Israeli’s are pasting Hamas and slowly but surely destroying their capability to wage terror on Israel, but it comes at a price.
The world’s media are against them, the whole Arab world plus their enablers are against them but they are pressing ahead. They really don’t have any choice in the matter.
They need to practice an ‘eye for a tooth’ warfare.
Israel’s ultimate goal in the Gaza conflict is to convince Hamas’s leadership that future strikes on Israel are too costly to carry out — no matter how much the Islamic militant group might hate the Jewish state. So Israel’s response is harsh. More than 700 Palestinians have died,most of them civilians, including upwards of 100 children. This heavy toll is tragic and tarnishes Israel’s image. Such disproportional military operations strike at the heart of “just-war theory” and the way of warfare embraced by the militaries of the United States and other Western countries. Yet they are also at the core of deterrence, which demands disproportionate “eye for a tooth” operations to succeed.
Deterrent threats can prevent actual warfare, though it is rarely easy. During the Cold War, the United States relied on the threat of aÂ massive nuclear responseÂ to deter the Soviet Union from using its conventional military forces to invade Western Europe. America threatened a disproportionate response: A Soviet move along the inter-German border would trigger Armageddon. Nuclear strategists spent much of their time trying to figure out how to credibly promise to do something so seemingly irrational. The famous nuclear strategist Herman Kahn likened deterrence to a game of chicken played by reckless teenagers who drive their cars at each other and wait for the “loser” to swerve.Â Kahn wroteÂ that perhaps the best way to win is to “get into the car quite drunk” and, when your opponent is watching, to “[take] the steering wheel and [throw] it out the window” — a pretty solid, if irresponsible, way of convincing your enemy that you are willing to act against your own best interest.

Mana operatives are deeply involved in pro-Palestinian and anti-Semitic activities around the country.
Last weekend at the protest in Auckland their flags were dominant, alone with Unite union and First union in an around the protests against Israelis protecting their citizens from terror attacks.
Mana is clearly involved in out and out anti-semitism – just disgusting filth when you see images like this.
The vast majority of the damage in Gaza has been inflicted by Israel. Yet Hamas has contrived to make the carnage worse. It has encouraged Gazans toÂ stand in the wayÂ of Israeli missiles. When Israel advised 100,000 Gazans to evacuate an area targeted for invasion, HamasÂ instructedÂ them toÂ ignorethe warnings. It added: âTo all of our people who have evacuated their homesâreturn to them immediately and do not leave the house.â
Abbas finds Hamasâ behavior baffling. âWhat are you trying to achieve by sending rockets?â he asked rhetorically in a TV interview. In another appearance, heÂ pleaded: âWe are the losing side, and every minute there are more and more unnecessary deaths. … I donât like trading in Palestinian blood.â
Thatâs what Hamas is doing. Itâs trading Palestinian blood for political ambitions it foolishly expects to achieve through war. No amount of suffering in Gaza has persuaded it to stop. During the warâs first week, there was vague talk of a cease-fire, withÂ each sideÂ reportedlyÂ holding outÂ for further demands. Netanyahu declared that âno international pressure will prevent us from operating with full force.â Israel looked like a belligerent bully. On Monday, when Egypt announced aÂ cease-fire proposalÂ based on ideasÂ sketched by Abbas, all Hamas had to do was say yes. The proposal entailed no concessions. It was just a break in the bloodshed, followed by talks.
The gist was simple. As of 9 a.m. Tuesday, both sides wouldÂ stop shooting. Then theyâd start talking, through Egypt, about a truce. The discussions would include Hamasâ demands forÂ easing Israeli control of Gazaâs borders. Egyptâs foreign ministry emphasized that the proposal was âaimed at stopping the killing of the Palestinians.â
The Arab LeagueÂ embracedÂ the plan. Abbas issued a statement that âurged all parties to comply with this truce in order to stop the shedding of Palestinian blood.â Israel accepted it andÂ announcedÂ that, as of 9 a.m., it had stopped shooting. For six hours, IsraelÂ held its fire.
But Hamas kept shooting. Rockets continued to fly from Gaza into Israelânearly 50 in the next six hoursâand HamasÂ tookÂ creditÂ forÂ them. Its spokesmen insisted that Israel had to open the borders and release Palestinian prisoners and that somebody had to meet Gazaâs government payroll. Any of these demands could have been discussed. What was crazy was Hamasâ eagerness to use, as its leverage, the perpetuation of a war that had already killed 200 Gazans.
Today I have both a Face of the day and a comment of the day. The comment is actually from yesterday and was on another Blog but it is so brilliant that it deserves to be viewed by a decent sized audience. It refers to a post written by today’s Face of the day, John Minto.
MANA / Internet MANA List candidate JohnÂ Minto and his bunch of Jew haters are enough of a concern to the US Government for them to have put out this security advisory:
The U.S. Consulate General in Auckland alerts that on Saturday, July 19, 2014, a protest titled âRally for Palestineâ will occur in Auckland beginning at 2 pm, with an unspecified completion time.Â
At the present time, approximately 1,500 people are expected to attend. Â [ /TUI - ed ]
Participants intend to march to the U.S. Consulate General at 23 Customs Street and lay shoes at the building entrance for each person who has died during the current conflict between Hamas and Israel.Â
New Zealand Police are aware of the protest and are monitoring. Read more »
