“Open your eyes my friends” says Lisa Daftari on Fox News. The world ignores true massacres in Moslem states such as Syria and Nigeria and chooses to focus on Israel defending itself. Why do this nations choose to be blind? Do they realize that Israel is the only country doing it’s best not to hurt enemy civilians as they’re placed in precarious postions to defend the terrorist organizaition, Hamas.
Too many young Israeli soldiers have been killed simply because they have not been allowed to fight strategically and wisely for fear of killing civilians in hostile Gaza. Mothers of these young Isreli soldiers have started a grassroots movement to tell the Israeli government, “The lives of our sons need to be defended before we worry about enemy civiians. Please allow them to fight as they should. The Hamas put us all in this horrible predicament. We want our sons to come home alive, not killed by a Hamas war strategy. ” What country would not provide that for it’s boys putting their lives on the line for their People?
The White House on Wednesday condemned “in the strongest possible terms” the murder of a Palestinian teenager whose body was discovered in Jerusalem on Wednesday.
Tensions in Israel and the Palestinian territories are high after the killing, which came just a day after the discovery of three dead Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped late last month.
The death of Mohammed Hussein Abu, a 16-year-old Palestian who was found beaten and burned to death, has sparked fears of reprisal killings.
Press secretary Josh Earnest said the U.S. called on “the government of Israel and the Palestinian Authority to take all necessary steps to prevent an atmosphere of revenge and retribution.”
The White House stopped short of labeling Abu Khudair’s death a revenge killing, though Earnest emphasized that “people who undertake acts of vengeance will only destabilize an already volatile and emotional situation.”
“We hope to swiftly see the guilty parties brought to justice,” Earnest said.
Israel’s Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu gave an important speech worthy of discussion when he addressed the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv on June 29. The following excerpts are from the official translation on the prime minister’s office website:
An historic change is taking place in our region, with major repercussions for Israel’s security and the security of the entire world. The Sykes-Picot agreement which, almost a century ago, defined the borders in our region, has come to an end. … we are now looking at many years of conflict and instability.
Tape seems to dispel scenario that terrorists had panicked and possibly not meant to kill the 3 Israeli boys.
The terrorists who murdered three Israeli teens after abducting them on June 12th broke out into celebratory singing after gunning them down, according to an extended version of the emergency dispatch call placed by one of the boys on the night of the killings.
