'Unreal' Photos from the Scene of Malaysia Airlines Ukraine Crash

Well, it'd be "unreal" if it was bodies crashing through your ceiling.

And dead bodies in the wheat field, still strapped into their seats.

Definitely a trip. Thank goodness they finally removed the dead and sent them home to their families for burial.

Last Hora in Paris?..........................from Dan Friedman

[I do not always agree with this guy and I'm always suspicious of anything produced by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). Still, this is worth reading, if only to remind us that Jew-hatred always lies just beneath the surface, and the reconstitution of Israel in 1948 is the only guarantee Jews now have that we won’t repeat our tragic past. Who knows? Maybe some of our own Jewish boulevardiers in the USA will get the message too. df]

The humanitari​an Pause - Again...................................by Dan Gordon

When I was a little kid  my brother, of blessed memory, who was six years older than me, took inordinate pleasure giving me what were then called “ Noogies” He was unmerciful and unrelenting in his “ Noogie “ attacks on my head. I would beg him to stop and he would say “ No”.

I would ask him, beg him, really to stop, “ Just for a little while”

And after a bit more Noogiing, if he was feeling merciful, after a while, he would stop .

Looking back on it , that is what I would call, in retrospect a “ Humanitarian Pause” .

I was suffering, asked him to stop , and for a while he would.

It didn’t mean the unending war between older and younger sibling had ended. It was a pause, asked for and granted and honored.

IWe didn’t need the UN or the EU or any other international body to monitor it. I asked for mercy and he gave it. He would say something like “ I’ll count to thirty” and for those thirty seconds, The Humanitarian Pause was in effect and sacrosanct.

Thus when I next heard the phrase over a half century later, in 2009, to be exact , Hamas , once again claimed the mantle of victimhood while carrying out unceasing rocket attacks against Israel. Their people were suffering genocide, they shouted to one and all, and their amen corner of sympathizers, apologists , enablers , and many people who simply saw suffering, and without understanding the context, joined the chorus and said , “ Yes, end the suffering now” . Never mind that all that Hamas had to do to end the suffering was to stop trying to kill us. That fact seemed, and seems until this day, too difficult to grasp for some.

“ We need medicine, “ they cried plaintively, “ And baby formula, and food and water and blankets. We are dying ! They are murdering us! This is genocide. They are doing to the Palestinians worse than what the Nazis did to the Jews!"

Let us just put a pin in that part for a moment., shall we? If the Nazis had treated the Jews the way Israel treats the Palestinians , there would be six million more Jews in the world today and all their descendants . The total number of Palestinians killed by Israel since 2000, is , by most estimates, somewhere between six and eight thousand people. That includes the figures from the second Intifada , the 2009, 2012 and present conflict combined .
That’s not genocide. That’s less than have been killed in Syria, in the last several months. But people only seem to care about Moslem Arabs being killed when it is in a war with Jews. Then it’s genocide.

To get back to 2009, Hamas, claiming that Israel was committing innumerable war crimes , and was also depriving them of humanitarian aide. Thus the idea of “ A Humanitarian Pause” was born.

Every day between 1:00 and 3:00 pm , if I recall correctly, Israel would unilaterally cease fire, and open the border crossing at Kerem Shalom,  in order to allow hundreds of truck loads of humanitarian aide to flow unhindered into Gaza  to relieve the suffering of the civilian population.

And every afternoon at 1:00 PM Hamas would begin shelling the Kerem Shalom Crossing with mortar fire and rocket attacks, to prevent the transfer of humanitarian aide to their own people, in order to say that the Jews were withholding humanitarian aide!

I told that to an unbelieving BBC crew and offered to take them there so they could witness it first hand. But first I told them to make sure they had their running shoes on because mortars give no warning. They just fall and explode and if you’re in the wrong place they kill you. I brought them down at 12:30 and they set up their cameras, ready to film the convoy of trucks on the Israeli side of the border as they crossed into Gaza. I pointed out the bomb shelter to them. They scoffed knowingly. Precisely at 1:00 Israel ceased its fire, opened the Kerem Shalom crossing and as the first of the trucks began moving forward, Hamas launched a mortar and rocket attack against the crossing point. I pointed to the shelter and they took off running. Fastest Brits I have ever seen since watching Chariots of Fire..

Later when I went into Gaza myself, the paratroopers I was with were stopped by an Palestinian farmer. “ Why don’t you kill them all?!” he demanded.

“Who?”

“Hamas!” he said. He pointed to a field from which Hamas launched dozens of rocket attacks against Israel. The field had once been his , he said, He grew sun flowers, and it supported his family with honor. Hamas came and took it over and now it only sprouted rockets.” How do I feed my children with rockets? “ he demanded.

Through a translator I asked about the humanitarian aide, because some of it had gotten through each day despite the shellings. He told us that Hamas took all the goods, jacked up the prices , and then SOLD the goods to the populace.

So last night, at the urging of the UN, Israel extended  by four hours, what was supposed to be a twelve hour “ Humanitarian Pause” for the feast of Id al Fatir, the end of Ramadan ,and to allow people to stock up on goods. Hamas rejected the extension and opened up with a rocket and mortar barrage. DESPITE that, at the urging of the international community, Israel agreed to extend the Humanitarian Pause for another 24 hours. Israel would not fire a single shot , but would continue blowing up the terrorist tunnels during the next 24 hours, in order to provide a period of relief for the civilian population.

Hamas answered that gesture with another series of rocket and mortar attacks.

A number of those mortar rounds fell in the civilian farming community where I had spent shabbat. In a previous article I described Rachel and Menashe, who had opened their home up to the soldiers as had the entire village because those soldiers, they knew, “ would , and well may, lay down their lives,” in order to protect them.

And last night that is exactly what happened, to one of the boys who only two days ago celebrated the Sabbath with us. A mortar round landed, seriously wounding two of those soldiers who were there protecting that farming village.

I was notified a few hours ago that one of them died of his wounds this morning. His name not yet been released as far as I know. We had celebrated the Peace of Sabbatth only two days ago.

May his memory be a blessing.

Puzzles for Smart People.........................from Shelly

Puzzle One:   Imagine you are a 3 year old to 8 year old child. You are on your own without adults. You are asked to walk from Houston, Texas to Minneapolis, Minnesota on your own with no food or belongings to sustain you. Then you are asked to walk an addition 100 miles past Minnesota.
 
Could you do it? How long would it take you as a 6 year old? That is the minimum distance these poor, helpless little ones have supposedly walked from Central America to the border of Texas, again, on their own. They didn't get lost.     
 
And they survived the journey without help (unless you buy in to the notion that a destitute out-of-work family run out of their homes by gangs and living in squalor somehow came up with $8,000 to $10,000 for EACH child to pay a coyote to take them to the border).
 
Puzzle Two: (See map below) You must start somewhere in the green area. Let's make it easy and start where green meets orange, so that you had the least mileage by not having to cover the whole green area. Just start where the green meets the orange. Blue, of course, is water.
 
Your task is to figure a route from the green area to the purple area without going into the blue area and while avoiding towns and cities in the orange area.
 
The black line is the distance from the nearest town to Mexico's southern border that touches the green area to Laredo, Texas, one of the CLOSEST purple towns. 1220 miles across desert and mountains with no equipment or food or help.
 
If orange had stopped these innocents where orange touches green, problem would not have occurred.  However, what six year old do you know who could walk 1220 miles (minimum), probably more like 1500 miles on their own without dying?  How many days would it take for a 6 year old to walk 1220 miles without help, directions, food, sun protection, etc.?
 
I don't believe the whole truth is being given to us, folks. Someone created and assisted this, and the media should be figuring out who it is.

Al Qaeda on the march

By Alan Caruba

In the July 24 edition of The Wall Street Journal there was a commentary, “Wanted: Converts to Judaism” by the chancellor of the Jewish Theological Seminary, Arnold M. Eisen. I thought to myself that this was an extraordinary time to be suggesting conversion to a faith that is literally under attack in Israel and being attacked by the reemergence of anti-Semitism in Europe. Here in America we are witnessing the most pro-Islamic and anti-Semitic administration in the history of nation.

In the wake of the Holocaust following World War Two what anti-Semitism existed in the U.S. gave way to an era of good will toward Jews. In Europe open expressions of anti-Semitism were out of favor. Eisen’s concern is the extensive inter-marriage between Christians and Jews in which Judaism is often abandoned in our historically Christian society. The news about Jews in the post-war years was largely about the nation of Israel and the wars it fought to re-establish and maintain the Jewish state.

What those wars should have told us was that Islamic hatred of Judaism extends to Christianity as well.

For Americans that lesson was driven home on September 11, 2001, but even the memory of that event has begun to fade to such an extent that Americans have twice elected a President who has never hidden his admiration for Islam, whose father was a Muslim, and who spent part of his youth in the Islamic nation of Indonesia. In office, his antipathy to Israel has been in stark contrast to the decades of support for Israel that presidents since Harry Truman have demonstrated.

A curious trend has emerged in America that runs counter to its entire history. The celebratory elements of Christian holy days, particularly Christmas, came under attack with demands that holiday scenes of crèches and even crosses be removed from public areas. Being religious was not encouraged and the tradition of starting the school day with a prayer was banned.

It is not too far a reach to say that the West, America and Europe, has been abandoning the depth of faith that distinguished it as church attendance fell off and resistance to attacks on the practice of religion declined. Home to some of the most beautiful churches on Earth, those in Europe are too often virtually empty. 

This has not been the case in the Middle East and parts of Africa where Islam has awakened from its passive existence due in part to the colonization that preceded and followed World War One. The riches that oil provided have played a role and today a nation like Qatar is funding the emergence of ISIS, the self-declared caliphate calling itself the Islamic State.

Other oil-rich Middle East nations have supported al Qaeda only to discover that they were among its targets. ISIS has turned on Muslims in the area between Syria and into northern Iraq whom they declare hypocrites and apostates. In Mosul, Christians have been told to convert, pay a tax, or die.

While the rockets that have rained down on Israel are dramatic, the attacks on Christians throughout the Middle East have received less attention, but Christian Arabs have been driven from their homelands in the same way the establishment of Israel saw Jews forced to abandon homes in which they had lived for generations.

While Americans, joined by European negotiators, attempt to get Iran to abandon its nuclear weapons program, they remain blind to the role Iran has played for decades, using Hezbollah and Hamas, two Palestinian terrorist organizations, to wage war on Israel and, by extension, the U.S. Not a day goes by without the calls, “Death to America” and “Death to Israel.” There is only one way to end Iran’s nuclear program and that is to destroy the facilities that enrich uranium and plutonium. At some point, it will come to that because it must.

Israel is making it clear to the world that there is only one way to rid itself of Hamas and that is a military operation. Its troops are finding an astounding matrix of tunnels whose only purpose is to attack it.

Utterly devoid of any moral standards, Hamas uses homes, schools and hospitals to hide its arsenal of rockets and Palestinian civilians are forced to act as human shields. The world’s media focuses on the deaths of their men, women, and children, but little notice of the rockets and missiles that continue to be fired at Israel. Meanwhile Hamas has been abandoned by Egypt and most other Middle Eastern nations other than Iran and Turkey.

The so-called Palestinians have been led by men like the late Yassir Arafat and currently by Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority, Fatah. Abbas has recently moved his family to a home in Jordan in the face of criticism that he has been too “cooperative” with Israel. On Quds Day last week, an event organized throughout the Middle East by Iran, an estimated 10,000 protesters gathered in the West Bank to protest Israel’s control of Jerusalem, a holy city to Jews and Christians, claimed as well by Islam. It was founded by King David.

Even so, the European business sector was quick to engage with Iran following the news of the negotiations which have been extended and which have granted Iran billions in return for sitting at the table to discuss an end to the nuclear program that it will never abandon.

In 1913, no one in Europe or America would have ever predicted the beginning of World War One in 1914. It began on July 28, 1914. As the historian Charles Emmerson said of the unanticipated war, “Humanity looked into the abyss and peering into the depths, found its own dark, disfigured reflection staring back.”

In 2014, a century later, humanity needs to take a look at the fascistic, utterly immoral objectives and practices of Islam, and understand that it is at war with us, with moderate Muslims, and with all other faiths. It’s not “if” will shall have to deal with it militarily as Israel is doing, but “when.” That day is not far off.

Update: Operation "Protectiv​e Edge".....................by Dan Gordon

We have all seen the pictures of the horrible price the Palestinian people are paying because the Terrorist army of Hamas seized power in Gaza in a bloody coup against not Israelis, but against their fellow Palestinians. They have turned civilian communities into terrorist enclaves which Israel can either ignore, and let it's own civilians be killed, or take action against ,while doing our best to limit injury to Palestinian civilians, behind whom Hamas has hidden with such awful cynicism, and whose deaths they celebrate, exploit and wear as a mantle of victimhood, while perpetrating war crimes against both are peoples.attached are pictures from inside civilian neighborhoods in Gaza. These are entrance points to terrorist tunnels, hidden inside civilian homes . Those tunnels lead beneath the internationally recognized border of Israel in order to enable Hamas terrorists to attack israeli civilian communities, murder, maim, capture And hold hostage Israeli men, women and children. In order to prevent those acts of terror against purely civilian targets, israel had no choice but to go into Gaza and engage in heavy, house to house fighting, room to room fighting, in order to find and destroy these homicide tunnels. Iron dome can protect israel from rockets. Tragically, nothing but boots on the ground, in treacherous urban fighting, can take out the tunnels. Israel has accepted cease fire after cease fire. Hamas has rejected cease fire after cease fire and used them, instead, to launch more rockets and terrorist tunnel attacks against us . No country in the world would do anything less than Israel is doing now to safeguard our civilians. Nor has any country done anything more to protect the innocent civilians, trapped in an enemy entity, bent on it's destruction.

You've seen the pictures of the horror and heard people say," look at the disparity of casualties between Israel and the Palestinians."

1. We are not at war with the Palestinians who suffer even more than we do from Hamas's terrorist regime.

2. These pictures show the cause of the horror, the turning of civilian communities into terrorist enclaves of rocket launchings and homicide tunnels aimed against Israeli civilian communities.

They also show why more Israelis haven't been killed despite Hamas's ceaseless efforts to do just that. The reason is the Israel Defense Forces who are fighting not for a caliphate, nor almond eyed virgins in paradise, nor to perpetuate the occupation of Gaza which we unilaterallyended almost a decade ago, in the mistaken hope that it would " give peace a chance". The Israel Defense Forces are fighting for our homes and our families. It will continue until the threat of the terrorist tunnels have been dealt with, And Hamas's terrorist infrastructure has been degraded to a degree which will allow our citizens to live the same peaceful life to which every civilized nation aspires. Our neighbors are neither Swiss nor Dutch, Canadians nor Swedes. There are no rewards for weakness where we live. Despite the best efforts of those who proudly announce their intention to annihilate us we answer back with neither bravado nor empty threats. Instead we say what our people have saud for milenia in the face of each new Haman, Hitler or Hamas who has sought to destroy us.

Am Yisrael Chai! The People of Israel live!

Only By the Grace of a Merciful G-d, and the strength and selfless courage of the IDF will we continue to do so.

One third poorer..........................from Rico

Does anyone remember Joe-the-plumber?
- You ought to. He was right about that wealth redistribution scam, and the Community Organizer in Chief is oh so very wrong.
 
The typical American household is poorer under O-hole. At the median point (half above, half below):
- The inflation-adjusted (real) net worth of the typical household was $87,992 in 2003.
- In 2013 it is $56,335....a 36% decline. You can thank the Democrats (C) and Barry Whatever-his-real-name is for that.
 
Yeah, that socialist dream of 'spreading the wealth around' is working out just great for Joe and Jane Six-pack isn't it?
- Why, a few more years under these idiot-savants and the socialist dream of "equality" will be achieved...everyone (except the inner party) will be equally impoverished [read: 'broke' if you're an O-holio supporter].
