The Weekly Standard blog says Hamas Leadership in Disarray. It is probably not considered good form to say that dismembered is better than disarray.

Also at The Weekly Standard Blog is this post Imagine the Jews Were the Real Terrorists!

Crittenden continues the beat with Bleeding, Leading in which he comments on Greenwald the sock puppet. Ok, maybe that is not fair, my also calling him a sock puppet. But if you ask me it is better than saying that he comes across as a semi-hysterical shill for terrorists. Now that is probably too extreme, so maybe we should return to the sock puppet. Either way we'll give Greenwald some time in the sun.

Go read Discussing Israel/Gaza on right-wing talk radio and make up your own mind.

Jefferey Goldberg wrote The World's Pornographic Interest in Jewish Moral Failure. Look at this excerpt:

"Once, in Khan Younis, I actually saw gunmen unwrap a shrouded body, carry it a hundred yards and position it atop a pile of rubble -- and then wait a half-hour until photographers showed. It was one of the more horrible things I've seen in my life. And it's typical of Hamas. If reporters would probe deeper, they'd learn the awful truth of Hamas. But Palestinian moral failings are not of great interest to many people. "

Yourish offers Hamas using children as human shield and Barbarism in the Congo, ignored.

The report by CNN that is at the top on your list is reporting what Israel claims only to a minor degree (I agree with the IDF position). The article itself doesn't give the reader any reason whatsoever to believe that Israel was justified. It makes them look like baby killers.

The Arabs have a long history of being liars!

The Israels would not be at war & bombing if the Gazens choice of leaders didn’t keep begging for it with there 4,000+ rockets being launched into Israel for years. The Arabs of the world are not generous to send aid, money, assistance or food to help their hungry fellow man. Israelis have sent hundreds of trucks of food & medical supplies from ISRAEL into Gaza since the start of operations. they are generous. They also allowed hundreds of trucks of international aid safe passage into Gaza. The USA has been the most generous with aid and food to the Gazens for Many, Many, Many, years. The Gazens have been ungrateful & they elected a terrorist group to lead & govern them. The USA tried to help but terrorbag arafat could not ever be satisfied. Yea, he was a big liar to. The Gazens should be less lazy and hunt down and put in jail the criminals that keep launching rockets into Israel. No country would have tolerated more rocket attacks then Israel has. There are videos on the internet that show hamas shooting rockets and mortars from schools and mosques. I don’t know why cnn is unwilling or afraid to air them. I hope they have not recieved money from Arab countries to slant there reporting. The UN (useless nations organization ) did not condemn the 4000+ rocket attacks carried out by hamas into Israel & terrorizing them for years & years. Not to mention the homicide attacks. Why do you think Israel would have to controll the borders ? ITS BECAUSE OF THE hamas ATTACKS.
Thousands worldwide protest the Israelis defending themselves rooting out terror but, MILLIONS WORLDWIDE PROTEST THE ATTACKS PERPETRATED BY hamas. God bless all man kind.

First, The united nations is only useless because great powers such as the US, Britain, France, etc. don't usually give it leverage for it to function properly.

Second, Please anonymous read your history on the subject although both sides are to blame. But you should also keep in mind that Israel let Zionist Jewish settlers ravish the lands of Palestine and kick out Palestinians living there. The Arabs do not have a history of lying that is an ignorance thing to say, everyone lies regardless of their nationality or ethnicity to pinpoint one group is to downgrade your argument automatically.

The Arabs do send aid, Egypt does this but it is also ridiculed by the Israel government saying that they support the terrorist group in the area.

I can suggest you to read a novel by Robert Fisk called "the Great War for Civilisation" although I do not agree with certain things on some subject he does give a clear accounts on this subject. But it is also good to read some history about the two sides.

Israel is entitled to defended itself, by all means. Hamas is a disgraced group that does use civilians as human sides and proudly publicizes it. But Israel being the more technologically, politically and military advanced state should take better tactical methods to overthrow the regime, instead of using force all the way.

Great, packed post. Had to link it. Some people we know ignore all facts and logic. People must realize that this is not a border dispute. Muslim Fundamentalists want ALL Jews dead and gone. Period.

The delusional insanity of many on the Left and a few on the Right about this is frightening. They ignore all facts and logic. Hamas, a terrorist organization killing the so-called Palestinians' hope for peace, are evil garbage, they must be eliminated. They have sent thousands, yes thousands of missiles into Israel over the past couple of years and Israel had never exercised their right of self-defense, until recently, when Hamas broke the ceasefire and started firing rockets again.

Israel is FINALLY doing the right thing. If Hamas is destroyed, then, if the rest of the 'Palestinians' really want peace they can give up their dream of destroying Israel, if not, they will never have peace.

Israel must destroy as much of Hamas as possible before the MSM and the idiots and ignorants whine loud enough for them to stop. They must only quit when they are ready.

For EVERY missile shot into Israel at least ONE missile should be returned to the area as close as possible to the shooter. Tit for tat. Every single missile should be returned. Period. Treat them like adults, if they kill, they will be killed. If they send missiles, they will receive them. That is the only way they will learn. Screw public opinion, force them to see the truth, or let them be damned.

Let us pray for the safety of Palestinian civilians who held hostages by Hamas and the safety of Israeli soldiers. May this campaign end swiftly and may Hamas be annihilated. May moderate Muslims emerge victorious in the struggle for Gaza!


How Long
