Israel Strikes 34 ´Terror Targets´ in
Gaza After Bodies of Israeli Teens Found

ABC News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/1/2014 4:42:58 AM

The Israeli Air Force carried out what it called "precision strikes" on 34 "terror targets" in the Gaza Strip overnight, after the discovery of the bodies of three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped in the West Bank earlier this month. The Israeli Defense Forces said the strikes were in response to rockets being launched earlier into Israel from Gaza. The waves of rockets from Gaza and IDF retaliations have picked up since the teens were kidnapped and the Israeli crackdown began. Hamas has not claimed responsibility for launching the rockets but Israel holds them responsible for everything coming out of Gaza. The Israel Defense

Too bad Israel didn´t wipe out the whole Gaza strip. If Barry were in charge, he´d be waving the white flag and telling the jihadist freaks that the country could sustain more hits and make security back down so it could happen.

Israel is trying to demonstrate to Obama what a real,decisive president does when their people are under threat.Obama hopes for a stroke of good luck or a kneepad media to bail him out.A president´s main job is decision making and Obama fails horribly short at that unless the issue undermines the Constitution.

Good. Israel is an island of sanity in the middle of a sea of the criminally insane. Bibi understands he must protect his people. Ignoring these murders would only embolden the terrorists. Thank God there are still men in the world who understand evil. It is nigh to impossible to try and reason with people who have no conscience and are permanently aggrieved. They must understand, however, that they will be held accountable for their evil deeds. Swift retribution was warranted. Well done, Israel.

Well, DUH!!! Who else would it be, Bill Ayres?

If Israel would drop a 500# bomb on a nearby marketplace every time the palis launched a rocket, the arabs might get the idea it isn´t smart to mess with Israel.

I wonder if we could give Israel a contract to completely mine our borders with Mexico in between double fences of course. Be a good idea to put up signs about the mines in every language except those spoken in terrorist states.

There are bodies of children being found in the desert. This action would save lives. Give Nancy Pelosi a solo tour. She only speaks incoherent liberal ramblings.

There is No evidence at all that Hamas did this.... Some rogue individuals perhaps, yes, and they should be tried in a court of law. Mossad could have done it to ounish Palestine for creating a unity government. I wouldnt put it past them. Real Democracies shouldnt go out doing mass bombings of civlians... If you agree to allow it, what will stop some freak like Obama from doing it here to us? There will have been a precedent! What were those ILLEGAL Aliens doing in Palestine anyway? They didnt deserve to die for being there, but why are their families squatting on stolen land? Our govt has LIED to us about everythjng else, so what makes you think they are now magically telling the truth about this!?? These settlements are for Jews ONLY...you are not welcome or allowed there as a Gentile. If that isnt discrimination, I Dont know what is. Wake up...these settlers are the oroblem! If illegals squatted on YOUR land, what would you do?

This week of July 1st, 2014, today, is the week to cast your early election vote for victory by seeing Dinesh D´Souza´s new rousing film "AMERICA", and by getting all your family and friends to see it, too.

Remember that all mainstream media and Hollywood, who speak out against this wonderful film example of the beauty that is America, are, pure and simple, the enemies of our great life. They are the Obama socialist, communist agitators, trying to tear this great country apart.

See this classic film NOW ! Cast your magic vote.

The war on terror...

Priority #1: Kill terrorists. Israel has that part right. Better than US policy.

Priority #2: Convince the average Muslim on the street that extremism causes only more pain and loss, and they should turn on the terrorists. How many Muslim refugees are out there that have lost everything including family because of the terrorists? Millions.

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.

Members of the Islamist extremist militia blamed for the Benghazi terror attack had moved in next door to the U.S. Consulate months before the strike but “nothing was done” despite concerns about the dangerous neighbors, sources tell Fox News. Sources say members of Ansar al-Sharia moved to the house just outside the east wall of the compound within three weeks of American personnel renting the facility, and later used the location to help plan and take part in the attack on the American Consulate on Sept. 11, 2012. The neighbors prompted multiple security requests -- including repeated requests up until the day

Days after a nationally renowned criminal law professor was found with a gunshot wound to his head, his death is being investigated as a homicide. Florida State University professor Dan Markel was found in his Tallahassee, Florida, home on Friday. Police say there were no signs of robbery or burglary and have yet to disclose any motive. According to Tallahassee police, officers found Markel after a neighbor called 911 at about 11 a.m. with reports of a "loud bang." Markel, 41, was rushed to a local hospital, where he died the following day. "While we cannot release specific information or details regarding this case,

American officials believe the missile that destroyed Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was fired by pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine, using a Russian-made system designed for bringing down fighter jets. That brings up the question: How easy is it to bring down a passenger jet with a weapon that’s meant to used by trained soldiers? Turns out, it’s pretty easy. As in, take a three-day course and go for it easy. The weapon in question is the SA-11, a radar-guided surface to air missile (SAM) system. It’s been around since the Soviets deployed the first-generation model in 1979. The mobile system (it sits on

The Obamacare woes continue as an Oklahoma man spent three agonizing months trying to cancel his health insurance plan. David Emanuel’s 65th birthday last April, when he became eligible for Medicare, spurred him to cancel his private health insurance plan. He called BlueCross BlueShield to terminate the plan and was met with resistance. “They said, ‘You can’t do anything until healthcare.gov tells us that you can drop it,’” he said. He phoned healthcare.gov, but no one answered. Emanuel showed KJRH-OK the call logs displaying how long he waited to speak to a representative from the health care exchange. The call logs show

Several reporters at the briefing challenged Earnest´s critique by pointing out White House officials regularly insist information be anonymously attributed to members of the administration in conference calls and other communications.

And the federal government is encouraging businesses to use that information to tell you how to eat and exercise, to “data mine” for your own good and the employer’s bottom line.

JERUSALEM -- Israeli media say an Israeli soldier is missing following a deadly battle in the Gaza Strip. A defense official confirmed that there is a soldier missing. The official spoke on Tuesday on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the incident with media. The media reported that the soldier was traveling in an armored personal carrier that had come under attack over the weekend. The reports did not say if the soldier was dead or alive. Hamas earlier this week claimed it had captured an Israeli soldier. Israelis did not deny or confirm the claim. For Israelis, a captured

“Why do you think President Obama´s job rating is falling, even though the economy is recovering?” the interviewer asked. It´s a fair question, even though the economy declined 2.9 percent in the first quarter, even though most jobs created in June were part-time, even though labor force participation remains low. The fact is that the economy is growing, however slowly, jobs are being created and the unemployment rate is heading down toward what economists consider full employment. And still the president´s job rating languishes. What´s wrong with the question is an assumption embedded within it, that what voters seek most

Some truths CNN reveals only accidentally. One such truth Anderson Cooper shared on the night of July 17. In speaking about the shoot down of Malaysian airliner MH 17 earlier that day, Cooper referred back to “July 17, 1996, when TWA Flight 800 was shot down off the coast of Long Island in New York.” (snip)wo days earlier, Cooper hosted a CNN special report on the subject, “Witnessed: The Crash of TWA Flight 800.” To understand the depth of media-government complicity, it is useful to compare “Witnessed” with two prior videos.

But Kennedy did let on that he doesn’t belong to the school of Constitution-worshipers who base their legal doctrines on what they glean to be the original, literal meaning of every word and phrase in the nation’s founding document.

A pernicious, little-known Obama administration policy – one that that incentivizes adult illegal immigrants to use children as human shields to escape arrest and deportation at the border – largely has escaped the media’s notice. This same policy is driving the historic surge of children at the border, as everyone from coyotes to illegal immigrant adults already in America seeks to use children to guarantee their safe passage into the country, or to protect them from deportation if they are illegally living here. The flood of illegal immigrant children, piling up like human debris on the US border, won’t stop

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. "Section 36B plainly makes subsidies available in the Exchanges established by states," wrote Senior Circuit Judge Raymond Randolph in his majority opinion, where he was joined by Judge Thomas Griffith.

WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama said Joe Biden would make a "superb" president, but questioned whether his vice president or potential rival Hillary Clinton would want to endure another campaign for the White House, a media report Monday said. Obama, in an interview with the New Yorker, said Biden "has seen the job up close, he knows what the job entails. He understands how to separate what´s really important from what´s less important. I think he´s got great people skills. He enjoys politics, and he´s got important relationships up on the Hill (in Congress) that would serve him well." "Joe would

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund has filed a class action lawsuit against the city of Detroit for water shutoffs that members claim are racially motivated. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stopped service to about 7,200 buildings with overdue bills in June, compared to 1,570 in the same month last year. The issue gained national attention last month after activists appealed to the United Nations for help. The shutoffs are “being done in a discriminatory fashion,” the NAACP’s Veronica Joice told a local CBS affiliate. “They should at least take a look at whether there’s a better way to do this that doesn’t affect the most vulnerable citizens

Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin on Tuesday urged Walgreen Co. to reconsider a possible move of its headquarters to Switzerland to lower its U.S. tax bill. In a letter to Walgreen Chief Executive Gregory Wasson, Durbin said the company could face a backlash from its customers. “I believe you will find that your customers are deeply patriotic and will not support Walgreen’s decision to turn its back on the United States,” Durbin wrote. “Nearly all of your $2.5 billion in profits earned last year were from sales to U.S. taxpaying customers.” The senator ended his letter with a twist on Walgreen’s
