Martyrdom? Collateral damage in the name of Islam? I’m not surprised. Are you?

Barack Obama’s latest foreign policy fail is his gift to Israel’s enemies and the enemies of the United States is the U N Security Council’s Resolution 2334 which has radical Hamas and Islamic terrorist groups celebrating the gift dropped at the feet by one who has repeatedly proven himself to be an anti-Semite, anti-Christian and enabler of chaos.

Hamas, which does not support the two-state solution, lauded the countries that voted for the motion, saying they backed the Palestinian people’s rights.
The organization’s spokesperson Fawzi Barhoum stated that “Hamas commends the countries that voiced their opposition to the Israeli occupation’s aggressive settlement policy aimed against the Palestinian people.” He further added that he lauds “the important about-face in the international position in favor of the Palestinian people. We expect further support for the Palestinians’ righteous cause of ending the occupation.”

When a supposedly objective report is ‘citing a press release from Hamas’ military spokesperson Abu Obeida, saying that, ‘In some instances, Palestinian armed groups in Gaza reportedly attempted to warn civilians in Israel of imminent attacks”‘ you must smell something rotten.
Here is some antidote against the UN-issued poison, by Maurice Ostroff.
Although the Israel government refused to cooperate with the UN commission of inquiry on the 2014 Gaza War, a number of concerned citizens and NGO’s presented cogent well researched submissions to the Commission….
During Operation Protective Edge, the dogs of the IDF’s Oketz unit battled terrorists in Gaza. Many of them were wounded in combat, but that didn’t stop them from continuing the fight.
Only ten days after suffering a severe injury in Gaza, Whiskey – a dog in the IDF’s Oketz unit – returned to the battlefield. He wasn’t alone. During Operation Protective Edge, several of the IDF’s canines were wounded in clashes with Hamas terrorists. Like Whiskey, many of them continued fighting despite their wounds.
Oketz (Hebrew: ‘Sting’) is the IDF’s elite canine unit and the best of its kind in the world. The unit’s soldiers undergo intense training to lead infantry forces and special units into battle. They prepare year round to join IDF troops in all sorts of situations, from basic missions to the most complex operations.
“Our dogs are filled with motivation, and they rarely reveal that something is wrong with them,” explained Major A, one of the unit’s senior veterinarians. On the first day of the operation’s ground phase, a bullet entered Whiskey’s leg near a major artery. Despite his injury, he continued to carry out his mission alongside IDF soldiers….
Beautiful. A stirring tribute to the IDF’s canine warriors.
Is it me or are suicide bombers forgetting to remove their suicide bomb vests more often these days, the effects of which, as in the following video, are KA-BOOM? Well, in any event, suicide is fatal.
Two weeks after pranksters artists displayed two German flags high atop the Brooklyn Bridge, anti-Israeli activists protesting the Israeli/Hamas conflict hung a Palestinian flag on the lower south side of the Manhattan Bridge.
The flag remained in place for about 30 minutes before it was removed read, “boycott, divest, sanction.”
The march started at Brooklyn’s Cadman Plaza. Protesters shouting, “Free Palestine” and “Long Live the Intifada” made their way across the Brooklyn Bridge toward New York City Police Plaza.
In addition to the Israeli/Hamas conflict, protesters wanted to shed light on “attention to the unequivocal support of Israel by NYC’s political elite, despite overwhelming condemnation from the international community… connecting Palestinian resistance to Israeli aggression to recent struggles in the U.S. against highly militarized police departments….”
In other words, every one of these hypocrites has an agenda of their own. Therefore, all are taking advantage of the crisis in Ferguson. They all want to be Mike Brown. Balderdash.
What the protest has done is highlighted another difference between Michael Bloomberg and Bill de Blasio.
Although the man is a putz, under Bloomberg, the two German flags would never have made it atop the Brooklyn Bridge in the first place. Furthermore, we would not reading today about anti-Israeli supporters unfurling the Palestinian flag on the Manhattan Bridge either.
No one can say that the Obama wannabe, Bill de Blasio, is slipping because he never had it. De Blasio is out to lunch all of the time.
Finally, NYPD had better put an end to this. Otherwise, we’ll have every group hanging their nation or ideological flags on our bridges. This must be stopped now.
