muslims being muslims...note the stylized Star of David...
barbaric bast*rds should NOT live let alone
walk amongst civilized man.
“I don’t think you want me to waste my time to read every page of the healthcare bill,” Baucus said, according to the Flathead Beacon. “You know why? It’s statutory language. ... We hire experts.”So that's what happened: in between the "conceptual language" and the actual legislative text, some experts who were writing the law thought it was a good idea to try to coerce states into creating their own exchanges by withholding tax subsidies from the federal exchanges. The actual legislators who voted on the legislation didn't know how the law would work, but they trusted the experts they hired.
"I don't expect to actually read the legislative language, because reading the legislative language is among the more confusing things I've ever read in my life."So, the Senate Finance Committee voted on "conceptual language" that established subsidies for exchanges without mentioning who those subsidies would apply to. They then hired experts, as Baucus said, who did intend for subsidies not to apply to federal exchanges, and those experts plainly wrote the law in the way that it wouldn't apply to federal exchanges. Democratic leadership then refused to post the legislative text for people to read in an adequate time period before passing the law, and as a result, Congress voted on legislation that was written by people who, yes, intended for tax subsidies only to apply to state-established exchanges.
“IDF Calls Out UN for Lying About Gaza Civilian Casualties,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, July 24, 2014:
Israel is calling out a United Nations aid agency for falsely claiming that the Israeli Defense Forces did not permit civilians to evacuate a Gaza school where 15 people were killed today.
The U.N. Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) laid blame for the civilian deaths on the IDF, claiming it never received approval from the IDF for an evacuation from the facility.
UNRWA—which has been under fire in recent days for allowing Hamas to use its facilities to store rockets—released a statement claiming: “UNRWA had been attempting to negotiate with the [IDF] a pause in the fighting during which they would guarantee a safe corridor to relocate staff and any displaced persons who chose to evacuate to a more secure location. Approval for that never came to UNRWA.”
Earlier, UNRWA spokesman Chris Gunness had similarly accused the IDF of preventing a civilian evacuation.
“Over the course of the day UNRWA tried 2 coodinate [sic] with the Israeli Army a window for civilians 2 leave & it was never granted,” UNRWA spokesman...
As the death toll of Operation Protective Edge rises, the deaths of children are firmly in the spotlight—and rightly so. It pains all reasonable people to hear of children dying as the consequence of war. Hamas and its supporters display gruesome pictures of dead and wounded children in order to gain sympathy for their portrait of Israel as the villain intent on killing Palestinians. In response, Israel cites the need to stop Hamas from firing thousands of rockets at its own children, who are being forced to live in bomb shelters, as well as the need to eliminate the tunnels that Hamas dug into Israel in order to carry out terror attacks against Israelis. One tunnel opening was found underneath an Israeli kindergarten.
But who built those tunnels? The answer is Hamas, of course—using some of the same children who are now trapped under fire in Gaza.
The Institute for Palestine Studies published a detailed report on Gaza’s Tunnel Phenomenon in the summer of 2012. It reported that tunnel construction in Gaza has resulted in a large number of child deaths.
“At least 160 children have been killed in the tunnels, according to Hamas officials”The author, Nicolas Pelham, explains that Hamas uses child laborers to build their terror tunnels because, “much as in Victorian coal mines, they are prized for their nimble bodies”.
Human rights groups operating in Gaza raised concerns about child labor in the tunnels as far back as 2008. Hamas responded by saying it was “considering curbs.” Following Operation Cast Lead in 2009 Hamas softened its position and the Interior Ministry established the Tunnel Affairs Commission (TAC) which, “In response to public concern at a rising toll of tunnel casualties, particularly of child workers…issued guidelines intended to ensure safe working conditions.” No mention is made in the report of the conditions that would result for both Palestinian and Israeli children from building tunnels that would be used to launch terror attacks.
Nor does it seem that Hamas paid much subsequent attention to ensuring the safety of the child workers that it used to build the tunnels that would wind up endangering the lives of many in Gaza. On a tour of the tunnels in 2011, Pelham noted that, “nothing was done to impede the use of children in the tunnels.”
Not only are Hamas misappropriating much of the humanitarian aid supplied to Gaza—800,000 tons of cement were used to construct the terror tunnels into Israel—they are also directly exploiting and endangering Gaza’s youth in their construction and operation.
In defiance of Barack HUSSEIN Obama's and his brethren's goal of trying to finish off what the Nazis started...yesterday Israel's Security Council unanimously rejected...and rightfully so...John 'Swiftboat' Kerry's week long cease-fire proposal that favored Hamas and would do NOTHING but allow Hamas to regroup and rearm.
However, Benjamin Netanyahu has agreed to a short 12-hour so-called 'humanitarian cease-fire' to send in food, water, and such to hard-hit civilian areas. But even with this Israel will still face condemnation NOT only on the world stage for their rejection of Kerry's cease-fire proposal but also here in the U.S., as witnessed by Harry Reid and his Democratic ilk's unmitigated gall of trying to tie in Israel's $225 million emergency funding request for their Iron Dome defense system to an immigration bill that would fund the ILLEGALS entering our country. And they're doing it for NO other reason than come election time they can say Republicans who voted against the bill are either anti-Israel or anti-children.
Nice huh...playing politics at the expense of Israel...at the expense of the Jews...at the expense of children.
And sadly, among those who condemn Israel every chance they get is the U(seless) N(ations). In fact, in the days just before Israel's rejection of Kerry's proposal, they launched an international inquiry on the Palestinians behalf into what they call Israel's human rights violations and crimes committed during this Gaza offensive. But the UN really needs to stop calling the kettle black as they are the very ones who have allowed Hamas to store its rockets and bombs beneath their United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNWRA) schools for displaced children.
But even sadder was the vote tally on said inquiry...which became the resolution the Palestinians wanted. And while the U.S. did vote NO on the resolution, 29 nations voted in favor of condemning Israel, and 17 nations abstained including all nine European Union members on the 47-member panel.
And Hamas uses these deaths for propaganda as the dead are worth more to their cause than are worth the lives of the living. Reasoning in their own disturbed minds that their actions are done in the name of allah as per the Hukm al-Tatarrus (the current islamic law on using human shields) which states in part that muslims are to “accept the idea of sacrificing the shield and engage in a fierce war using weapons of mass destruction," Hamas claims to be God's holy warriors...allah's warriors. But they're warriors in their minds alone...warriors who seek revenge against the Jews for their (self-perceived) injustices against muslims, but what they really are is cowards for when one hides behind women and children a holy warrior is something you are NOT.
And those western nations that vote against Israel time and again, as well as Barack HUSSEIN Obama himself, do NOT care about any of this for Israel's demise is their collective goal. This resolution vote, as with all previous votes against Israel, boils down to choosing to side with barbarians over choosing to side with the Jews. And there are only two reasons for this lack of support for Israel...the obvious being the UN and Obama's muslim ties and sympathies and the other involves the old hatreds...for the fact is many still blame the Jews for the death of Jesus. These are the same people who forget that Jesus was born, lived as, and died as a Jew...they forget that Jesus the Jew knew NOTHING of the Christians who came after...they forget that God could have stopped His death if He so chose...and they forget that only by Jesus' death could Christianity be born.
But NO matter as the bottom line remains that the destruction of Israel is Hamas' goal as witnessed by their very actions. Instead of fighting with those who only want to live in peace, Hamas could have chosen to use their abundant monetary resources to build schools, to pave roads, to build hospitals, but instead they chose to build bombs...to shoot rockets...choosing to fight a battle that in the end they will surely lose. And remember, each time Hamas asked for and got a cease-fire they and they alone broke it.
So while Israel will sadly continue to lose its sons and daughters in this current battle...that is unless they go forward with all guns blazing so to speak...the civilized man understands this is a fight to the death...a fight for Israel's very survival...a fight that allows for NO compromise with the enemy nor does it allow for negotiations with those who side with said enemy. And know that this is NOT a battle about the small sliver of land that is Israel, but is about Hamas' self-perceived call for revenge over events that happened during the time of the Old Testament...events orchestrated by the hand of God before the time of allah...even if it means that to seek that misguided revenge they have to kill their own people and blame it on Israel.
And that is indeed evil personified and the saddest thing of all.
