As Israel Relentlessly Pounds Terrorists In Gaza, The War Threatens To Expand Elsewhere

Residents of Gaza spent the night cowering in fear as a series of dramatic airstrikes destroyed buildings used by Hamas terrorists.  We have never seen anything quite like this, and the Israelis haven’t shown any signs that they plan to let up any time soon.  In fact, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is saying that the IDF “will continue to operate as long as needed to restore quiet and security to all Israelis”.  That could take a while, because Hamas just keeps firing even more rockets into Israel.  On Monday, Hamas rockets forced Israeli citizens into bomb shelters in the cities of Ashdod, Ashkelon and Beer Sheva(Read More...)

Netanyahu Warns “We’ll Do Whatever It Takes To Restore Order And Quiet” After Nearly 3,000 Rockets Are Fired At Israel

If you were running a country and somebody decided to fire close to 3,000 rockets at your cities, what would you do?  I know what I would do, and it wouldn’t be pretty.  Every nation on the entire planet has a right to self-defense, but right now Israel is being savagely attacked by the left and by corporate media outlets all over the globe for simply choosing to defend itself.  Of course if 3,000 rockets were fired at Washington D.C. or New York City, many of those same voices would be calling for all-out war.  The hypocrisy that we are witnessing right now is staggering.  Hamas made the decision to start lobbing hundreds and hundreds of rockets at Israel, and now they are paying a great price for doing so.  During an appearance on “Face The Nation” on Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that his nation will continue to do “whatever it takes to restore order and quiet”(Read More...)

Could The Wildly Out Of Control Violence In Jerusalem Spark A Major Regional War In The Middle East?

Things have been getting more tense in Jerusalem for weeks, and Monday was the day when tensions really started to boil over.  The violence that we witnessed in the streets of Jerusalem shocked the entire globe, and it threatens to spark a major regional conflict.  At one point, a tree that had been set on fire on the Temple Mount was burning wildly out of control, and that was a perfect metaphor for the emotions that we witnessed on both sides.  As a result of multiple violent clashes, over 300 Palestinians and an undisclosed number of Israelis ended up with injuries(Read More...)

Almost All The Votes Are Counted, And There Are 2 Ways That Benjamin Netanyahu Could Remain Prime Minister Of Israel

In the aftermath of the tightest election that Israel has seen in a long time, headlines all over the world are boldly declaring that “the Netanyahu era is over”.  But that is not necessarily true.  At this point it is going to be exceedingly difficult for anyone to put together a governing coalition, and as I will explain in this article, there are still a couple of ways that Benjamin Netanyahu could hold on to power.  This is a drama that is probably going to take an extended period of time to unfold, and Avigdor Lieberman is in the catbird seat.  The decisions that he makes in the coming days are going to be absolutely critical.

Avigdor Lieberman Is Israel’s New “Kingmaker”, And He Will Use That Leverage To Make Sure Israel Goes To War With Hamas

Last November, Avigdor Lieberman resigned as Israel’s defense minister when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu decided to reject Lieberman’s plan for a military operation in Gaza and agree to a ceasefire with Hamas instead.  At the time, Lieberman called the ceasefire a “surrender to terrorism”, and of course it didn’t last very long at all.  Hamas has continued to bombard Israel with rockets in the months since then, and this has once again brought Israel and Hamas to the brink of war.  But everything was on hold until Tuesday’s election, and it appears that the outcome of that election is going to make war with Hamas much, much more likely.

Brink Of War: Troops And Tanks Head To The Gaza Border After Hundreds Of Missiles Rain Down On Israel

Missiles continue to rain down on Israel at this hour, and even the New York Times is admitting that the region is on the “brink of war”.  On Monday, more than 300 rockets and mortar shells were fired from Gaza into Israel, and the Israeli military struck back extremely hard in response.  Many observers had been hoping that the barrage coming out of Gaza would slow down on Tuesday, but so far that has not happened.  The Times of Israel is reporting that missile alarms were shrieking all over southern Israel as dawn broke on Tuesday, and at least 70 rockets and mortar shells have been fired at Jewish cities since midnight.  If the barrage does not stop, there will be war.  As you will see below, large numbers of IDF troops and tanks have been spotted heading to the Gaza border.

Israel And Hamas Are On The Verge Of WAR As More Than 150 Rockets Rain Down On The Holy Land Overnight

This is the closest that Israel and Hamas have been to war since the last major conflict in 2014. There had been ongoing negotiations regarding a long-term ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, but those plans appear to be on hold after a huge escalation of the violence in the last 24 hours. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gathered with his defense minister and other top military officials late last night, and at this hour it is unclear what will happen next. If Hamas stops firing rockets, perhaps ceasefire negotiations can resume. But if they keep firing rockets, it could lead to all-out war and all hell could break loose in the Middle East.

10 Quotes That Reveal Barack Obama’s Obsession With A Palestinian State

Obama Thinking - Public DomainBarack Obama is absolutely obsessed with getting the Jewish people and the Palestinians to agree to a peace deal which will permanently divide the land of Israel between those two peoples.  Barack Obama insists that such an agreement will bring permanent peace to the region, even though no previous agreement between the Jewish people and the Palestinians has lasted very long at all.  We are just told to believe that the creation of a Palestinian state will somehow cause terror groups such as Hamas to totally forsake their goal of obliterating the Jewish state and pushing all Jewish people living there into the Mediterranean Sea.  For Obama, this has become personal.  He wants to cement his legacy as a great “peacemaker” by being the president that succeeded where all presidents before him have failed.  He wants to be the one that delivers the West Bank and Gaza into the hands of the Palestinians, and he has about 20 months left to do it.  The recent election victory of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was a blow to those plans, but Obama is not about to give up.  In fact, Obama administration officials are now hinting that they may back a plan for a declaration of a Palestinian state at the United Nations – thus bypassing negotiations with Israel completely.  Whether by hook or by crook, Obama seems absolutely determined to make the Palestinian dream a reality.  The following are 10 quotes that reveal Barack Obama’s obsession with a Palestinian state… (Read More...)
