“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

Why Israel is losing the latest war in Gaza.

The Inescapable Truth Of The Great Israeli Lie:

OOrah to the Existential Mutherfuckers

Knock Knock - The civilized World is getting a look at what Israel has been doing to Gaza

"Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power,
have the right to rise up
and shake off the existing government
and form a new one that suits them better.
This is a most valuable—a most sacred right—
a right, which we hope and believe, is to liberate the world.
Nor is this right confined to cases in which
the whole people of an existing government
may choose to exercise it.
Any portion of such people that can, may revolutionize
and make their own so much of the territory as they inhabit.
More than this, a majority of any portion of such people
may revolutionize, putting down a minority,
intermingled with or near about them,
who may oppose their movement.
Such minority was precisely the case
of the Tories of our own revolution.
It is a quality of revolutions not to go
by old lines or old laws,
but to break up both and make new ones.”
Abraham Lincoln - Congress- January 12, 1848 


  1. No justice, no peace.


    My God man, you sound as if you just graduated from college or something. Like you are walking around holding a sign, chanting.

    You sound so......Occupy Wall Street........

    You make no sense.

    Even ASH has put up articles making points that put your perspective to shame.

    No justice, no peace.........meaningless

    No missiles, peace........meaningful, if only a start

  2. Social media war? I concede that Israel is losing that war....

    However 50% of Hamas's rockets are used or destroyed.

    I don't know the exact number, but I bet a good number of tunnels are destroyed.

    And I don't know the exact number but I bet a huge number MORE of Hamas fighters are dead than Israeli fighters.

    And of course, Hamas and Iran spent a very nice billion or two investing in both those tunnels and missiles and to what avail?

    After 1,800 terrorists fired rockets at the CIVILIANS (both arab and jews) of Israel Hamas can claim they KILLED two. Now of course having rockets rain down hundreds a day on all parts of Israel is a war crime but who cares? Hamas is the darling of the Jew hating/Israel denying crowd...

    I the end, Hamas and it's supporters will claim victory.. No matter reality...

    If there is one Hamas member still alive and spitting? Israel lost...

    reminds me of Monty Python's "its a flesh wound" skit...

    1. What are you going to do, bleed on me?

    2. Sodastream !

      I'd tell you to go read the comments, but ...
      You will if you want to

      and they were from last May.

    3. Jack you have proven to all of us that online reviews and posts are meaningless.

      You have bragged to have at least a dozen. Why would anyone with a brain believe an "online review" about SODA?

      Its been targeted by BDS for years. And of course anything negative is suspect.

      You taught us all well about how meaningless online reviews are...

  3. The people in Gaza would be well advised to shake off Hamas and form a new sane government, I agree with Abe Lincoln on that.

    Then, if they'd stop with all the missile throwing, stop with all the being proxy for others, learn some meaningful trade, join the civilized world, detox from the Jew hatred, ingrained since the days of Martha Gellhorn and long long before, then after a decade or so they might start to get somewhere.

  4. The only casualty of the rocket barrage from Hamas is one of their own buds, an Israeli bedouin. If this is losing a war, bring it.

    1. Really? They got a goat herder?

      Out there in the desert somewhere?

      Nice shooting - ;)

    2. Must have been one of those missiles so far off course Iron Dome is instructed to ignore it.

      I feel for the guy. Hell, all he's doing is herding his goats. Them wham. Offed by his own folk.

      Ain't that a revoltin' development.

    3. Yeah, Bob, and the rat poison they put in the warhead means he bled out before anyone could help.

    4. From his point of view, it was a precision strike.

    5. The casualty is the Israeli economy, watch and learn, children, watch and learn

    6. The arab was killed in his illegal squatting home. Israel provides bomb shelters to all LEGAL villages and towns. But about 50% of the Bedouins are illegally squatting on public land.

    7. Then again, father Abraham only had a deed to that tomb in Ramallah.

  5. GAZA CITY — More than 560 Palestinians have been killed in the 14-day battle with Israel. Burying the bodies has become more difficult and dangerous with each passing day.

    Movement can be a risky sprint not only for ambulances but also for the beat-up vans that ferry the dead to cemeteries. The central morgue in Gaza City is overflowing, its wheezing refrigerators losing the struggle against the smell. The graveyards are filling, and mourners dig their own holes.

    In the early days of the current Israeli offensive against Hamas, the militant movement that controls the Gaza Strip, people took bodies to the mosque and gathered afterward in mourning tents. There were parades and battle flags. Clerics gave defiant speeches.

    No more. Funerals are now rushed, anxious family affairs that take place under the sound of Israeli artillery and drones.

    The two Hamdeiah brothers were dug out of the ruins of their home in the besieged Shijaiyah district of east Gaza City on Monday morning, not long after an Israeli airstrike killed them. Moataz, 18, and Ahed, 23, were found alongside the bodies of a cousin, Yussef, 22, and three passing neighbors.

      By staff | July 12, 2014

      San Salvador, El Salvador - Protesters gathered in front of the Israeli embassy in San Salvador on July 11 to express solidarity with the Palestinian people, and to protest against Israel's military assault on Gaza. The protesters waved Palestinian flags and held signs condemning the attack on Palestine. This was the second protest in front of the Israeli embassy here this week.

    3. Moroccans take to the streets for Palestinian people

      Rabat - Two sit-ins will be staged on Saturday in Rabat and Casablanca in solidarity with the Palestinian people.

      A release by the organizers said a group of citizens took the initiative of this pacifist protest that has taken on a nationwide scale.

      The sit-ins are to be held simultaneously at 10 p.m. in Mohammed V Avenue in Rabat and at the intersection of boulevard Moulay Youssef and boulevard Anfa in Casablanca.

    4. Cool! Good for them...

      We'd protest in front of the Hamas Embassy but none exist.

      Maybe we could protest in front of a federal prison and advocate that Jihadist terrorists get longer sentences.

      After all, in THIS county those who rocket civilians ON PURPOSE go to jail

    5. Oh My! Pro-Palestinian demonstration held in Fort Lauderdale

      At the protest, cars passing by honked their horns in support of the Palestinian people as police on foot and horses stood by.

    6. Thousands of protesters have gathered in London today to call for an end to Israeli military action in Gaza and “justice and freedom” for Palestine.

      Up to 15,000 people are thought to have marched through the capital from Downing Street to the Israeli embassy in Kensington after Israel launched a ground invasion of Gaza on Thursday.

    7. PARIS — The conflict between Israel and Hamas militants in Gaza is spilling into the streets of dozens of cities in Europe, as thousands of pro-Palestinian protesters have depicted Israel as the aggressor and sought to isolate it internationally.

      Thousands of demonstrators gathered over the past several days in Paris, Berlin, Vienna, Amsterdam and other European cities in mostly peaceful expressions of support for Palestinians in Gaza, where Israel has carried out a 14-day offensive aimed at stopping rocket fire and closing tunnels used to infiltrate fighters into Israel.

    8. In Johannesburg, numerous traffic jams occurred on Friday as thousands of pro-Palestine protesters gathered outside the Israeli Embassy trade office, waving Palestinians flags and banners criticizing Israel’s assault on the Gaza Strip.

    9. More than 4000 Sydney protesters joined hundreds of thousands around the world on Sunday to demand an end to Israeli military strikes on Gaza.
      The boisterous crowd stood shoulder-to-shoulder, waving Palestinian flags and chanting: “In our thousands, in our millions, we are all Palestinian.”
      Best friends Batoul Taha, 25, and Kiltom Al-Tobi, 25, held placards showing images of Palestinian children injured or killed in air strikes. They said they travelled an hour from the western suburbs to attend the rally.
      “We are just over it. We are over people being killed in Palestine, especially the children,” said Taha, who lives in Merrylands.

    10. Wow, protesters for Palestine!!

      Yep I read about them... firebombing the Jewish Synagogues, looting stores and attacking any Jews they could find..

      No Justice, No Peace.. Kill the Jews any where you can find them...

    2. Nobody is buying Israeli propaganda. They can see with their own eyes and through the smoke screen of the US media. In a week, the crowds will be in the tens and then hundreds of thousands. Already people in Europe are looking for labels on produce to make sure that it does not come from Israel.

      This is how wars are lost.

    3. The conflict in Gaza continues to evoke protests around the world, mainly against Israel’s war effort.

      Some 500 people in Tokyo staged a silent protest against the bloodshed, the largest Gaza-related demonstration since Israel launched Operation Protective Edge on July 14.

      In the United States, mass marches were held in several major cities.

      Thousands of demonstrators marched through downtown Chicago, the Chicago Tribune reported. Protesters were carrying Palestinian flags and signs reading “Save Gaza's children” and chanting “Free, free Palestine,” according to the Tribune.

      On the west coast, hundreds of demonstrators, including Jewish groups, marched in the streets of San Francisco to protest Israel's war in Gaza on Sunday, according to several San Francisco news outlets. In Los Angeles, hundreds of protesters who marched to the Israeli consulate in the western part of the city forced the closing of the westbound lanes of Wilshire Boulevard, local station 89.3 KPCC reported.

      Jewish marchers in support of Gaza in San Francisco included individuals as well as the group Jewish Voice for Peace, which last week staged a "die-in" at Hewlett-Packard headquarters in the Bay Area to protest the company's, which "provides all PCs used by the Israeli military," according to the group.

    4. Nonsense. the crowds, as compared to previous wars? IS TINY....

      No one cares..

      Just a few ginned up far left anarchists and of course imported arabs...

      As we speak? hamas is BEGGING for a cease fire...

    5. Already people in Europe are looking for labels on produce to make sure that it does not come from Israel.

      This is how wars are lost.

      Crying wolf again...

      But you have at it...

      Make sure you don't use any Israeli phones, computers, medicines or foods...


  8. Lasers Are No Longer a 'Star Wars' Fantasy
    Israel is developing a portable 'Iron Beam' laser defense system. The U.S. should too.

    Who was that ancient Greek who said war is the creator of all great things?

    There has been tons of discussion about exactly what he meant. With no agreement possible, as it was simply a fragment of writing.

    But war certainly seems to lead to innovations.

    1. World War I took airplanes from homemade kites with lawnmower engines on them to four engined bombers. World War II gave us computers and atomic warheads.

    2. Now the real battles are waged on Wall Street and in shopping malls.

    3. Since the Israeli have no four engine bombers, we wouldn't give them those, and the nukes are off the table, in Gaza.

      So the battle is fought in the capital markets.
      As allen told us, a couple days back.

      Before he was reassigned.

  9. Deuce must read the New York Times, same MO.

    He certainly follows the Hamas guidelines.

    He should, he is the Director of the Hamas Propaganda Department.

    1. Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, Jr. and Carlos Slim own the NYTimes.
      If Israel has lost the NYTimes, the proof of the Israeli defeat in the social media is cemented in place

    2. Israel has NEVER had the NYTimes...

      SodaStream’s troubles might not be good news for Coke and Keurig. The sharp decline in U.S. sales, where SodaStream derives about 30 percent of its revenue, suggests that consumer demand for at-home soda machines might not be as strong as hoped. Keurig Green Mountain declined to comment.

      It’s not an interpretation that Yonah Lloyd, SodaStream’s chief corporate development and communications officer, is willing to accept: “The U.S. results do not reflect a limit for demand,” he said on Wednesday. Lloyd points to continued growth of CO2 refill units used in the soda machines, which shows that StodaStream owners use it regularly. Sales of the refills spiked 27 percent to a record 1.4 million. About three-fourths of users in the U.S. use it three to four times a week, according to SodaStream.

      Sodastream vs Keurig: How Coke Will Change the Home Soda Machine Market

      By Daniel Kline
      April 10, 2014

      The in-home soda machine market is about to become a battleground as its established leader faces competition from two of the biggest names in the beverage business.

      Home soda machine sales grew by 30% in 2013 and sales of complementary products such as CO2 carbonators, bottles, mixes, and syrups more than doubled over the previous year, according to a report from the NPD Group. Sales of CO2 carbonators, used in the soda-making process, also more than doubled in 2013, which is a good indication that consumers are actually using their machines.

      Sounds like SodaStream has done such a great job that Coke and Keurig want a piece of it...

      Machine sales mature, but supply sales are growing!

      Sounds like its a BDS FAIL... Again...


    7. In a country where the average person guzzles 400 cans of Coca-Cola in a single year, who wouldn’t dream of having their own personal soda fountain at home?

      At least that’s what the makers of Coke (KO) are hoping. The soda giant announced a $1.25 billion deal last week with Keurig-maker Green Mountain Coffee (GMCR) to put an at-home soda machine in kitchens around the country by 2015. It’s a move that clearly puts a target on the back of SodaStream (SODA), the reigning king of DIY carbonation. SodaStream saw 37% year-over-year revenue growth in 2013, adding $528 million to its coffers.

      LOL 528 MILLION to it's coffers...

    1. The race is on to see who will get the second Muslim Bomb, whether Iran by making their own, or England by going Muslim.

  13. Sorry, you are losing and the longer it lasts the more empowered will be the Palestinian people. You are watching an unmitigated disaster for Israel.

    1. you aint sorry, you seek the destruction of the state of Israel.

      But you may be counting your chickens before they hatch.

      As time moves on, the jihadists will start bombing london, spain, france, boston, new york AGAIN....

      And the people across the globe will remember it's the palestinians and their supporters that cause us to take off our shoes at airports...


      You aint seen anything yet...

      Arabs/islamists have invaded every major city in the world, and they hate everyone, sometimes even themselves...

    2. Beheadings in London, honor killings in france, clit chopping across the west...

      In America? Black are getting pissed at all the islamists moving in on TAXPAYER dimes, buying up shops and treating them like garbage...


    3. Empowered. When this is done, they'll have to divert a shitload more concrete for 100 new tunnels, because rocks will fill the ones they have now, and they'll have to smuggle in another twenty thousand rockets that only hurt Bedouins.

  14. In the past week, several articles in multiple publications have made the claim that Evangelical Christian support for Israel is waning among members of the “millennial” generation.

    Haaretz published an article by Nathan Guttman entitled “Israel is losing its grip on evangelical Christians?”; and The Middle East Quarterly published an article by David Brog, executive director of Christians United For Israel, entitled “The End of Evangelical Support For Israel?” There is some valuable information in these articles concerning some organizations that are seeking to sway the American public, specifically Evangelical Christians, against the strong relationship of friendship and alliance that exists between the US and Israel.

    In the end, most of the publications articulate a fear that the millennial generation of Evangelical Christians is “turning away” from staunch support for Israel toward a more “balanced,” in effect, pro-Palestinian position. The writers’ justified sense of alarm is derived in part from the highly visible work that a few evangelical and other Christian detractors of Israel are doing in the US and on college campuses.

    1. No to worry, the Islamists are murdering Christians by the hundreds and blowing up churches as we speak...

    Syria Civil War: Bloodiest 48 Hours Sees 700 Killed as Isis Gain Influence

    More than 700 people were killed in clashes over two days between pro-government forces and Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis) militants in Syria.

    Activists from the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said that the deaths represented the bloodiest fighting since the civil war began in 2011.

    Forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad and Isis militants battled following the rebel group's capture of the Shaar gas field east of Homs city.

    By Thursday 270 have been killed in clashes while the death toll for the day's combined unrest was 396.

    Friday's death toll reached 314 while 90 more people are still unaccounted for. Precise numbers of Isis and pro-government casualties in the overall death toll remain unknown.

    Rami Abdul Rahman, head of SOHR, said that the deaths were the first time 700 had been killed in the space of two days since the onset of the conflict.

    Rahman said that Isis' attack on the gas field was the "most important so far against the [Syrian] government".

    Last month, Isis declared it had formed an Islamic caliphate straddling the Iraqi-Syrian border and appointed its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as the "caliph" of all the world's Muslims.

    While Isis' offensive has been focused on northern Iraq in recents months, the militants continue to hold onto territory in eastern Syria such as Deir Ezzor, seizing all of its oil fields.

    The group also continue to crack down on those who fall under its control for activities counter to their radical interpretation of Islam.

    Jihadists stoned to death two women accused of adultery in the northern Raqqa province after being sentenced by an Islamic court. A mob reportedly carried out the death sentence in the Al Taqaba market area last week.

    pardon me while a laugh...

    1. Syria Civil War: Bloodiest 48 Hours Sees 700 Killed as Isis Gain Influence...but never mind that, Israel hit four kids on a beach.

  16. Iraq Crisis: ISIS Torches 1,800-Year-Old Church after Banishing Mosul Christians

    The ISIS deadline for Christians to leave Mosul ended at the weekend, and thousands of people who follow the religion have left the city. And as the last group of Christians made their way out, the militants torched the 1,800-year-old Assyrian Christian church.
    According to Al Arabiya, the church was burned down on Saturday, after the remaining Christians fled. It noted that the burning of the church was the latest event in the destruction of Christian property in Mosul.
    #ISIS burns 1,800-year-old church in #Mosul

    — Al Arabiya English (@AlArabiya_Eng) July 20, 2014

    The militants, who are on a mission to establish a Muslim state under Sharia laws, want to cleanse Iraq off Christians.
    Besides the burning of the church, the ISIS militants have removed the cross from St. Ephrem's Cathedral, which was once the seat of the Syriac Orthodox archdiocese in Mosul, and have hoisted the black ISIS flag there instead. An ancient statue of Virgin Mary has also been broken, the New York Times reported.
    "They killed us when they removed the cross, this is death for us," Ghazwan Ilyas, the head of the Chaldean Culture Society, told NYT.

    Who cares....

    No Jews involved

    1. According to BBC, thousands of Iraqi Christians have been pouring out of Mosul even since June but after the ISIS ultimatum, which asked them to convert or pay tax or leave or face death, the number of refugees fleeing the city literally doubled.
      The Human Rights Watch (HRW) stated that the Mosul Christians have fled to join thousands of Shiite and other refugees in the neighboring autonomous region of Kurdistan.

  17. Your team supported ISIS. Bibi provided them air cover and the Conga Line was ready to follow McCain who had a khanjar in his teeth. Funny thing happened though, the American people said no.

      When those hospitals are hit and the 2ndary explosions seem like a small nuke we shall have our evidence..

      4000 rockets sitting under the major hospital in Gaza will make on HELL of an explosion and I doubt there will be anything left after the ammo dump goes off...

  19. The Mother of all Existential mutherfuckers.

  20. Evangelical church support for Evangelical churches is waning as Evangelical churches support Hamas/Palestinians.

    That is the truth of the matter.

    The Lutherans barely dodged this bullet again recently. The Presbys didn't.

    Both churches have lost so many members both are irrelevant any longer.

    We Lutes - still in name only for me - are about to go extinct, the Presbys also.

    Churches becoming political parties, and stupid ones to boot, is the problem.

    People seem to want a sermon, not a political harangue on Sundays.

    Egypt, Saudias and NUMEROUS other arab nations are either saying NOTHING or actually fighting to prevent anything gain made from Hamas.

    In fact several, including the PA ambassador to the UN have said Hamas is harming the Palestinians and doing war crimes...

    1. Let's get those quotes, because your word as to what others say, it has no voucher.

    2. The ambassadors and nations you claim to reference, they are all US proxies.
      Little wonder that they would back the Israeli position, it they really have, as that is the US government's position.

    3. "Yup"

      Even Robert Peterson agrees, "O"rdure, your word is worthless

    4. My yup was intended for WiO's comment.

    5. Came to late, Robert Peterson, yours was referencing the 11:04 comment that came before it, or you'd have cut and pasted the remark your comment was about.

      We all know you do know how to cut and paste.

    6. This means, I was agreeing with WiO on his statement.

    7. Why don't you start a blog, Robert Peterson?

      You could comment on enemas and cats pissing on your sippers.
      Things you know something about.

    8. You could comment on enemas and cats pissing on your slippers

    9. But you did not, so are you so confused, your thinking so muddled that you are lost on the blog?

    Came to late, Robert Peterson, yours was referencing the 11:04 comment that came before it


    Nope. I was listening to Fox New then pushed the button and you beat me in.

    Why do you always argue over ridiculous small things? I have often wondered.

    1. Are you so confused, your thinking so muddled that you are lost on the blog?

    2. I want to keep our discourse at a level you are capable of, Robert Peterson.
      When the subjects become deeper than the cat piss on your floor, you seem to get confused.

      As is illustrated, above.
      Not knowing where in the conversation your comments are being placed, so you say things that you then try to retract.

    3. Notice Jack has to change the subject when a decent point is made?

    4. Stick to writing about getting tubes shoved up your ass, Robert Peterson.
      Fantasize about that vacation to Israel you have been dreaming of.

      You could be amongst the ...
      tens of thousands of gay tourists from abroad arrive annually
      "We are trying to create a model for openness, pluralism, tolerance,"
      Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai told The Associated Press. "Live and let live — this is the city of Tel Aviv."

      The city's first openly gay-owned hotel was opened recently and numerous city-backed travel sites direct gay visitors to the hottest clubs, bars and resorts in town.

      "We've long recognized the economic potential of the gay community. The gay tourist is a quality tourist, who spends money and sets trends,"
      said Pini Shani, a Tourism Ministry official who has been involved in the campaign.

      "There's also no doubt that a tourist who's had a positive experience here is of PR value. If he leaves satisfied, he becomes an Israeli ambassador of good will."

    5. Yep bob...

      he has a classic narcissistic personality sickness.

      Has to be the center of attention and has to "win" arguments, even when he argues with himself.

    6. Your focus is on Jack Hawkins, not the 'point' you thought was made.

      You fell for it, again.
      You just won't learn, will you?

    7. Elevating Jack Hawkins to heights unknown while taking the meat of the matter off the table.

      Then you project your own deficiencies upon Jack Hawkins.

      How often have you told us where "O"rdure stands?
      How many times have you tried to focus our attention on you and what you believe?
      Not on any referable fact.

    8. Where are the references to those countries and ambassadors, "O"rdure.
      You abandoned the storyline when challenged.

      Because there is no depth to it, no more than the cat piss on Robert Peterson's floor.

    9. Where are the references, "O"rdure?

      You made an unsubstantiated claim, references were requested and you have failed to supply even one.

      That says it all, with regards to your credibility.

  25. DOHA/CAIRO (Reuters) - The push for a Gaza ceasefire risks becoming mired in a regional tussle for influence between conservative Arab states and Islamist-friendly governments, with rival powers competing to take credit for a truce, analysts and some officials say.

    The main protagonists are Arab heavyweight Egypt and the tiny Gulf state of Qatar, on opposite sides of a regional standoff over Hamas, the Islamist group that controls the Gaza Strip, and its ideological patron the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Both camps suggest the other is motivated as much by a desire to polish diplomatic prestige and crush political adversaries as by the humanitarian goal of protecting Palestinian lives from the Israeli military.

    "Gaza has turned very suddenly into the theater in which this new alignment within the Arab world is being expressed," said UK-based analyst Ghanem Nusseibeh.

    "Gaza is the first test for these new alliances, and this has affected the possibility of reaching a ceasefire there."

    He was referring to Qatar, Turkey, Sudan and non-Arab Iran, the main members of a loose grouping of states which believe Islamists represent the future of Middle East politics.

    That camp stands in increasingly overt competition with a conservative, pro-Western group led by Egypt, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, most of whom are intent on crushing the Brotherhood and see it as a threat.

    That cleavage is now apparent in the diplomacy over Gaza.


    Qatar bankrolled the elected Muslim Brotherhood government of Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi, who was overthrown by the military a year ago. Saudi Arabia and the UAE have since poured in money to support strongman Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who led the takeover and has since been elected president after outlawing and suppressing the Brotherhood.

    Under his rule, Egypt has tightened its stranglehold on the southern end of the Gaza Strip, closing tunnels to try to block supplies of weapons and prevent militants crossing.

    Egyptian officials suspect Qatar encouraged Hamas to reject a ceasefire plan Cairo put forward last week to try to end an Israeli assault that has now killed more than 500 Palestinians as well as 18 Israeli soldiers and two Israeli civilians.

    Palestinian officials said the proposal contained little more than Israeli and U.S. terms for a truce. Hamas has its own demands for stopping rocket fire into Israel, including the release of prisoners and the lifting of an economic blockade.

    With Egypt's initiative sidelined, all eyes turned to Doha, where visiting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday met Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal, who lives in the Qatari capital, a senior Qatari source told Reuters.

    An official in Cairo said the Gaza battle "is part of a regional conflict between Qatar, Egypt and Turkey.

    "Hamas ... ran to Qatar, which Egypt hates most, to ask it for intervention, and at the end we are sure Hamas will eventually settle with an agreement that is so similar to a proposal that Egypt had offered, but with Doha's signature."

    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, due in Cairo late on Monday, is likely to have to mediate between Egypt and Qatar in a bid to end the fighting in Gaza.

    "The dilemma is now to get Egypt and Qatar to agree. It is obvious that Hamas had delegated Qatar to be its spokesman in the talks," said an Egyptian diplomat. "Kerry is here to try to mediate between Qatar and Egypt to agree on a deal that Hamas would approve."


    1. Another foreign ministry source said: "Egypt will be asked by Kerry to add in Hamas' conditions and then Kerry will go to Qatar and ask it to ask Hamas to approve the amended deal."

      For reasons of history and geography, Egypt has always seen itself as the most effective mediator in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in neighboring Gaza.

      But critics say Egypt's strongly anti-Islamist government is trying to pressure Hamas into accepting a truce offering few concessions for the group. Its aim, they say, is to weaken the movement and allied Islamist forces in Egypt.

      Hamas leaders said they were not consulted on the Egyptian move, and it did not address their demands.

      With peace efforts delicately poised, Gaza now appears to be a test of strength in a regional struggle for power.


      Emirati political scientist Abdulkhaleq Abdulla said Gaza mediation had seen "a lot of political interference".

      "Qatar was unhappy with the Egyptian ceasefire (plan). They are very uncomfortable that it came from Egypt. The Qataris are trying to undermine Egypt politically, and the victim is the ceasefire that Egypt has proposed.

      "The terms of the problem is -- who will present the ceasefire? Who will win the first political match between those two new camps within the Arab world?" Abdulla said.

      At the root of the rift are opposing attitudes to the Muslim Brotherhood, which helped sweep Hosni Mubarak from power in Egypt in 2011 only to be ousted itself last year.

      Its ideology challenges the principle of conservative dynastic rule long dominant in the Gulf: Some of its leading members are based in Qatar and broadcast their views via the country's media, angering other Gulf Arab states

      Qatar is accused of using its alliance with Hamas to elbow its way into efforts to mediate between the movement and Israel.

      Critics suspect Qatar wants to repair an international image clouded by months of allegations of poor labor rights, alleged corruption over the 2022 World Cup and political tensions with its Gulf Arab neighbors.

      But Western governments see Qatar, maverick though it be, as a potentially significant regional mediator because of its links to Islamist movements in Egypt, Syria and elsewhere.

      Qatar denies any ulterior motive and notes that Washington has openly asked it to talk to Hamas. Foreign Minister Khaled al-Attiyah said on Sunday Qatar’s role was just to facilitate communication.


      A source familiar with the matter said Qatar will not press Hamas to change or reduce its demands.

      In Saudi Arabia, where suspicion of Hamas is particularly strong, as an ally of the Brotherhood and of Iran, Riyadh's main regional adversaries, newspapers have abandoned a tradition of blaming Israel alone to also attack the Palestinian group.

      "The Hamas leadership, from Egyptian blood to Palestinian blood," was the headline of an opinion article by Fadi Ibrahim al-Dhahabi in the daily al-Jazeera newspaper on Sunday.

      He argued that Hamas was stoking the war in Gaza not for the sake of Palestinian liberation, but as part of a wider Muslim Brotherhood campaign against Egypt's government and to win favour with Iran.

    2. Not one word about Egypt denouncing Hamas or claiming they have committed 'war crimes'.
      "O"rdure scores another FAIL

    3. psycho.

      I do not post for you in any way, shape or form.

      You are a failure. Look in the mirror.

      You are laughed at and thought of as a joke.


  26. "O"rdure dances like a puppet on a string, and doesn't even realize it.

  27. Hamas is designated as a terrorist organization by Israel and a number of Western and non-Western governments; The United States,[10] Canada,[11] the European Union,[12][13] Jordan,[14] Egypt[15] and Japan classify Hamas as a terrorist organization.[


    If it is good enough for

    The United States
    The EU

    it is good enough for me.

    1. You always were a sheeple.
      Dancing to the tune played by Barack Obama.

    2. Unable to think for himself, Robert Peterson follows blindly, when others are at risk.
      But dodged the draft, when he himself could be in danger.

      When the US went to war, Robert Peterson stayed home.
      Because when it comes right down to it, Robert Peterson was a poor citizen.
      He let others go in his place, because his put own self interest ahead of duty, honor and country.

      Enough said.

  28. I recall when some here were bitching about Israel trying to stop the shipment of concrete into Gaza.

    Morsi, when he was top dog in Egypt, got some through.

    Where did it all go?


  29. I want to say to our Canadian friends, and their Prime Minister, thanks for supporting Israel so strongly !

    Times Square backs Israel
    By Marion DS Dreyfus

    Two police told us the crowd numbered “…Between four and five thousand.” Another pair approached, and one of those officers hiked a skeptical eyebrow and guessed, “What, maybe 8,000? Dunno, hard to guess.” Another chimed in “Lotta people.”

    The supportive demonstration at 41st St. and Seventh Avenue was one avenue block from the rabbity two or three dozen desultory pro-Hamas accretion in front of the troubled and hyperpartisan New York Times. There’s an irony there if you look beneath the wrinkle. Weren’t nobody cheerily singing and energetically rousing the crowd amongst the pro-Hamas, pro-terror, no American flag -gruntled and disgruntled minions.

    Catercorner across from the pro-Israel assemblage, 40th and Seventh, on the other hand, was a brand-new Maoz, an Israeli-owned vegetarian emporium we have eaten at and sampled all over the city -- salads, hummus, pita, and the like, making an honest living with healthy and reasonable fare.

    Here was an anomaly: The plump population data of the Muslim moiety is, at some 370 million in the Middle East alone, quantum leaps ahead of both the Jews in the world entire, or the small population of Jews peopling Israel, somewhere in the neighborhood of 6 something million. Yet the representatives of tiny Israel outweighed the grumps huddled on 8th Avenue by endless multiples.

    The flags in profusion at the Times Square demo were huge, unashamed Stars & Stripes, and flowing, shoulder-height Stars of David, draping the shoulders of the bronzed, occasionally tatted, yarmulka’ed or bare-headed handsome men, and waving along the sun-kissed arms and hands of stunning Israeli and American girls and women. There were IDF T-shirts and camo, a profusion of tastefully tatted arms and collar bones, and the occasional curious passerby trying to make it to the subway around the corner, W. 42nd and Broadway.

    1. We had all by then heard the sad, wrenching news of the recent, enormous loss of life from the Protective Edge skirmishes: 13 young Israeli lives had been snuffed out, making a total of 20 young men gone. In a nation as tight-knit and tiny as Israel, 20 men lost is an extravagantly heavy burden. As one placard announced: “We came to support, not argue.”

      The police guarding the IDF and Israel support crowd stood foursquare, not watching with the tension that often marks our constabulary when the crowds are of a different provenance. How many police were there for the approximate 8,000 waving, singing, chanting, patriotic masses? “Hard to say,” said one redheaded officer. “There’s a whole load of us, that’s sure,” said his partner. I counted several dozen in the three blocks.

      Up East a block, the pro-Israel talk and mutual sharing were in Hebrew, songs were classics we remember from grade school or yeshiva. Then Hatikvah. Or they were uptempo patriotic Israeli hits. Vibrant crowd, loud street reverb at the loudspeakers. Girls at the mic. Guys at the podium. Healthy young, knowledgeable, proud Jews. Where else in history…?

      You knew you were among Israelis because the men looked steadily at one, spoke teasingly, flirted. It’s a different mindset and kishka involvement from the largely neutralized local testosterone batch. Women spoke easily with one another in Hebrew, or French, or accented English. And again, those girls and women were knock-it-out-of-the-park gorgeous -- Indian Jews, Ethiopian Jews, Yemenite Jews, Israeli-Israelis. Along with the cadres of long-time supportive American women and men. Not to be ignored, a roving band of Lubavitcher, circulating opportunistically but good-naturedly, offering “Do you want to laig tefillin?” (Wear phyllacteries.) Some of the nonreligious evidently said, What the hay, and donned the leathern straps and box of parchment with prayers inside.

    2. We grew exhilarated with the optimism and ferocity of the support, unpacking our sadness over the war costing us our precious young men. Buses passed slowly, going south along Seventh; the people on the bus lettered "Dahlia", shouted encouragement from the second tier, and gave the raised fist-bump of good-natured success. Two hot guys in leathers, ultra-cool threads, shades and ice-blue helmets on Harleys sang "Am Yisroel Chai!" (Israel lives!”) along with the crowd. Cars tooted as they cruised south; the gathered patriots yelled back in cheer and reinforced unanimity.

      It was leagues beyond what we had expected. The usual demo to express support for a beleaguered and misrepresented Israel or objection to some latest outrage against Jews somewhere in the Western world required usually one street with a few barriers set up across from the Israeli consulate on East 42nd and 2nd Avenue.

      This was massive.

      Helped by the perfect Sunday afternoon in mid-July, there was all this buzz of utter love for being Israeli or Jewish. Signs were not the pre-printed handouts of the Left’s demos -- all the same, same italic shouting fonts. Same rude presumption of insufferable moral superiority. These signs were hand-lettered and heartfelt. The street was a mass of waving U.S. and Israeli colors and values on poles.

      One elderly loon paced back and forth promising on a stick that "The End Is Near." We asked him what he was about. “Because [he began ungrammatically] both countries are going to be destroyed.” “Why?” we countered. He was evidently a low-information prophet, since Hamas is not a country. But persisting, we asked why both “nations” were facing the end of days. “Because both have not listened to G-d,” he intoned, "they did not listen to Him," the fervor of the ignored prophet hoisting him millimeters taller than his 5-foot stature. He could not explain how or in what way both had sinned enough to warrant the end.

      Another guy, this one black, tromped around grumpily with a sign reading ”Repent! Follow Jesus!” We laughed and confided to him, “You sure have the wrong crowd.” “You will have His judgment,” he replied, dead serious. But he added charitably, “Bless you.”

      We were at first apprehensive about the police, as we had schlepped along a wedding present in a colorful open tote that could have been regarded as an explosive problem. In Israel, no question, it would have been searched. But no officer challenged us, and the demo attendees looked more curiously at our grassy green visor than at the large-economy-sized bag carryall we held in our left hand, fat bubble wrap concealing the contents.

      Signs all touted variants of Israel wants peace/Hamas wants war, or cited the one- or two-word catchwords infamous for bloody terror against innocents the world over, crimes perpetrated by terror sects, incidents well-known to news hounds: Mumbai, pizzerias, kidnaps, Munich… Benghazi.

      When 7 o'clock came, after three hours of boostering and chanting, there were still enthusiastic knots of young flag carriers on every block, who sang and chanted pro-Israel-themed standards. Some danced Israeli dances.

      Around the corner, a moment later, not a Hamasite, not a pro-terror advocate, was to be seen anywhere on the block where lurks … the Times.

  31. Europe and the United States and Canada should take in the persecuted middle east Christians.

  32. We are taking in persecuted Central American Christians, Robert Peterson.
    That's enough stress for our fragile economy.

    The Israeli should take in the middle eastern Christians.
    They are always looking for immigrants.

  33. "We are sure the firing came from Israel and not from Hamas," al-Misshal said. Mark Regev, the spokesman for Israel's prime minister, said "Israel dos not target journalists."

    They are just inept, those Israeli. Hitting things they are not targeting all over Gaza.

  35. Russia to U.S.: Show Evidence Kremlin-Backed Rebels Downed MH17

    But speaking late Monday, Putin's Ambassador to Malaysia Lyudmila Vorobyeva described the Obama administration's claims as "groundless" and suggested that Ukraine's government could be responsible for shooting down the jet.

    "There have been a lot of accusations and finger pointing towards Russia," she said. "The U.S. claims they have evidence of what happened, where is this evidence?"

    "I want to make it very clear. In Russia we are not playing these games that our Western counterparts are engaging very much in, blaming someone and accusing some parties without any evidence, we are not doing that," she added. "We're calling for a thorough investigation that could produce evidence who is responsible for this tragedy."

  36. What the Media Won’t Report About Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17
    by Ron Paul

    Just days after the tragic crash of a Malaysian Airlines flight over eastern Ukraine, Western politicians and media joined together to gain the maximum propaganda value from the disaster. It had to be Russia; it had to be Putin, they said. President Obama held a press conference to claim – even before an investigation – that it was pro-Russian rebels in the region who were responsible. His ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, did the same at the UN Security Council – just one day after the crash!
    They will not report that neither Russia nor the separatists in eastern Ukraine have anything to gain but everything to lose by shooting down a passenger liner full of civilians.

    They will not report that the Ukrainian government has much to gain by pinning the attack on Russia, and that the Ukrainian prime minister has already expressed his pleasure that Russia is being blamed for the attack.

    They will not report that the missile that apparently shot down the plane was from a sophisticated surface-to-air missile system that requires a good deal of training that the separatists do not have.

    They will not report that the separatists in eastern Ukraine have inflicted considerable losses on the Ukrainian government in the week before the plane was downed.

    They will not report how similar this is to last summer’s US claim that the Assad government in Syria had used poison gas against civilians in Ghouta. Assad was also gaining the upper hand in his struggle with US-backed rebels and the US claimed that the attack came from Syrian government positions. Then, US claims led us to the brink of another war in the Middle East. At the last minute public opposition forced Obama to back down – and we have learned since then that US claims about the gas attack were false.

    Of course it is entirely possible that the Obama administration and the US media has it right this time, and Russia or the separatists in eastern Ukraine either purposely or inadvertently shot down this aircraft. The real point is, it’s very difficult to get accurate information so everybody engages in propaganda. At this point it would be unwise to say the Russians did it, the Ukrainian government did it, or the rebels did it. Is it so hard to simply demand a real investigation?

    1. Obvious false flag attack by the Israeli using iron dome with the purpose of kneecapping Putin and preventing him from imposing a nuclear weapons deal with the US on Iran.

  37. Some basic questions of journalism — “Who, What, Where, Why” — are being ignored by the mainstream media as it pushes war hysteria. They immediately supplied answers for “Who” and “What” that were not supported by facts. But they haven’t even asked “Why” flight MH17 was “Where” it was.

    Pilots, Air Traffic Controllers Want The Truth Behind MH17

    1. The Israeli had monkeyed with the flight control computer, that's why it was at where it was at.

    2. The Israeli also brought down Flight 800.

    3. Ukraine Warzone: Was Flight MH-17 Diverted Over Restricted Airspace?

      Perhaps the best visualization of what the issue is, comes from Vagelis Karmiros who has collated all the recent MH-17 flight paths as tracked by Flightaware and shows that while all ten most recent paths pass safely well south of the Donetsk region, and cross the zone above the Sea of Azov, it was only today’s tragic flight that passed straight overhead Donetsk.

      Why is the diversion from the traditional flight path and passage over the highlighted zone a concern? Because as the following map from the WSJ shows this is precisely where the restricted airspace is

      Graphic image

      So perhaps before coming to “certain” conclusion about the involvement of this rebel or that, the key questions one should ask before casting blame, is ...
      why did the pilot divert from his usual flight plan,
      why did he fly above restricted airspace,
      and just what, if any instructions, did Kiev air control give the pilot in the minutes before the tragic explosion?

    4. jack anon and farmer all the same, talking to himself...


  38. PARIS (AP) — French President Francois Hollande is defending plans to deliver a warship to Russia, despite calls for a European arms embargo against Moscow over the fighting in Ukraine.

    European Union foreign ministers are meeting Tuesday in Brussels, with some calling for tougher sanctions against Russia.

    Hollande told reporters that the French-made warship deal wouldn't fall under new sanctions because it was finalized in 2011. French officials have also argued that the ship would be delivered without any weapons.

    Hollande said Monday night that the first warship is nearly finished, adding, "The Russians have paid. We would have to reimburse 1.1 billion euros" ($1.5 billion) if France were to cancel the deal.

  39. All eyes were on Gaza when the recently self-proclaimed "Caliph" at the helm of the "Islamic State" of Iraq and Syria gave Christians in Mosul, Iraq, 48 hours to evacuate their homes and leave behind all their possessions. This was an act of "benevolence" committed against a people who had two millennia of continuous presence in their ancestral city.

    The edict noted that as Christians, they could choose conversion, submission as a protected minority, or death. The Christian leadership, it seems, had "failed" to enter into negotiations on the options for submission, and the authorities of the Islamic State said they were thus within their rights to proceed with a wholesale massacre. However, through the "mercy" of the Caliph, the Christians were ordered instead to leave the territory of the state, their belongings duly reverting to the "treasury" of the new order. This absurdity notwithstanding, the Caliph had indeed displayed relatively "humane" restraint in his edict on the expulsion of Christians. No such consideration was accorded to the countless victims of the Islamic State in Northern Iraq and Eastern Syria, where public decapitations, amputations, crucifixions, flagellation, and stonings are common punishments for "convicts," sentenced by "judges" who are often only teens. The historical, archaeological, and architectural record of this land, once the cradle of Western civilization, is now subject to systematic obliteration with acts of arson and sabotage, each meticulously documented by the perpetrators.

    Islamic thinkers and intellectuals can no longer absolve themselves and their faith of responsibility for these acts of horror. It is not the function of common adherents to Islam to refute transgressions against human decency committed in the name of their religion; it is, however, the duty of those who declare themselves custodians of the faith to refute the monstrous manifestation of depravity displayed in Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen, Mali, and locations in between. The price of their inaction, or woefully insufficient reactions, over decades has been the debasing of their religion into a rationale for torture and mayhem.

    1. Just look who owns/manages MSNBC, Brian L. Roberts, part of the Jewish MSM cabal.

      Pushing war with Russia, to advance the program of Petro Poroshenko, whom Forbes Israel listed as one of the world's richest Jews an estimated net worth to be $1.3bn (£0.8bn; 1bn euros).

      Mr Roberts is also in that "World' Richest Jews Club", those "birds of a feather' are flocking together.

      Yes, there is a world wide effort to push the globalist agenda.
      It is illustrated in both the Levant and in the Ukraine.

      A united front against those that are not on bended knee paying homage to the petro-dollar and what it represents.

    2. Mr Roberts, like our own "O"rdure will do what he can to change the focus, to direct it away from Israel's killing of children and focus it upon the 'enemies' of the international elites, the banksters and debasers of monetary value.

    Hamas: leading their people to death
    By Dan Gordon

    Ernest Hemingway had great advice for writers. “Write one true declarative sentence,” he said. “Then write another.”

    By that standard, Papa Hemingway would be proud indeed of Sami Abu Zuhri’s literary prowess.

    Sami Abu Zuhri is a Hamas spokesman. He summed up the current situation in Gaza perfectly. And he did it in two true declarative sentences.

    “We ( Hamas) aren’t leading our people to destruction. We are leading them to death.”

  44. Researchers at MIT have developed a new spongelike material structure which can use 85% of incoming solar energy for converting water into steam. This spongelike structure has a layer of graphite flakes and an underlying carbon foam. This structure has many small pores. It can float on the water, and it will act as an insulator for preventing heat from escaping to the underlying liquid. As sunlight hits the structure, it creates a hotspot in the graphite layer, generating a pressure gradient that draws water up through the carbon foam. As water seeps into the graphite layer, the heat concentrated in the graphite turns the water into steam. This structure works much like a sponge. This new material is able to use 85 percent of incoming solar energy for converting water into steam. It is a significant improvement over recent approaches to solar-powered steam generation. And, this setup loses very little heat in the process, and can produce steam at relatively low solar intensity. i-e if scaled up, this setup will not require complex, costly systems to highly concentrate sunlight.

    That's what we get by not having our universities teach only Qu'ran memorization.

  47. Boko Haram Islamists have hoisted their black and white flag over a town in northeastern Nigeria, after torching homes to the ground and killing more than 100 residents as they tried to flee.

    Survivors told the Associated Press on Saturday that jihadists used rocket launchers and homemade bombs in their attack on Damboa town before dawn on Friday. Gunmen shot villagers as they tried to flee their burning homes.

    A human rights advocate, speaking on condition of anonymity, told AP that gunmen attacked again on Friday as people were trying to bury the dead. The only defense came from vigilantes armed with clubs and homemade rifles.

    Hundreds of villagers are fleeing Askira Uba, another local government area of Borno State, after receiving letters from Boko Haram threatening an attack, civil defense spokesman Abbas Gava, of the Nigerian Vigilante Group, told AP.

    1. Boko Haram forces 100 flee, and burning some homes, that is supposed to be news?

      When in Levant the Israeli have force over 500,000 people to flee, and the Israeli have destroyed over 28,000 Palestinian homes, and that is to be considered a non-event.

      "O"rdure is looking for equivalency, for Israeli war crimes, but he will not find it in Nigeria.
      The Israeli NASI are comparable to the NAZI of Germany, whom the Zionists allied themselves with, back in the day.
      Why is "O"rdure not blaming the Christians in Nigeria?

    2. Why doe "O"rdure not hold the Christians to the same standard he holds the Muslims.
      Why does he not hold the Israeli to the same standard he holds Boko Haram?

      Why are 100 refugees news in Nigeria, but 500,000 refugees in Palestine are to be ignored?

    3. Just one little headline, psychorat.

      Happens every day, twice, three times a day, in Nigeria.

      You just don't follow Jihad Watch and the other sources as you really should do.

    4. Bob, there is no point in "arguing" with a narcissist. Every point, every word and every thought will be twisted, distorted and misused.

      Just respond with "traitor" "you stand with terrorists" or psycho.

      Not a printer ...
      A publisher.

      Do you not know how to read, or do you not know the difference?

    2. He prints and publishes advertising crap, is what daddy does. And he don't proof read. Just slops it in there. If you can believe him, what he says.

  50. I tripped over a hat box last night and went flying, spraining my wrist which is now swelling like hell.

    1. An English Lit draft dodger who never published a book or even a short story.

      Gives proof to the truth Robert Peterson is a fraud, and only went to college to avoid the draft, as he said was the case.

      When did I ever say I was a scholar??

      I don't recall saying that.

      I have a college degree in English Lit. from U of Washington.

      To avoid being drafted ... .

      The, rat, precursor to the Illuminati Overlord, Dark Lord of the Western Desert, paramour of the Blind Idiot God Cthulhu, Licker of Toads, Drinker of Stale Beer that has passed Its Use Date, tosses the term draft dodger about with abandon yet lacks the mental capacity to either know or look up its meaning.
