FAA lifts flight ban to Israel

How should Israel feel about trusting Putin's Bitch?

The thirty-six-hour economic sanction against Israel by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) ended  at 11:45 p.m. last night (July 23), or 6:45 a.m. Israel Summer Time. At that hour, the FAA rescinded its ban on all travel to and from David Ben-Gurion Airport by U.S.-flag airliners. This happened only after a United States Senator called the FAA and their Obama administration masters on their true motives.

Israel cut off from air?

How should Israel feel about trusting Putin's Bitch?

Yesterday, one missile, likely from Gaza, struck the ground in the Tel Aviv suburb of Lod, near the David Ben-Gurion Airport. Shortly afterward, Delta Air Lines Flight 468, on final approach to Ben-Gurion after crossing the Atlantic from New York, abruptly turned around to land at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris. The airline suspended all flights two and from Israel until further notice. United Air Lines did the same. Then the Federal Aviation Administration said it would not allow any U.S. carrier to fly into or out of Israel for at least twenty-four hours. (And at roughly 12:35 p.m. EDT, the FAA extended that ban for another twenty-four hours.)

Leadership: epic fail!

When a plane like this was shot down over Ukraine, de facto President Obama failed of leadership.

Two days ago, rebel forces in eastern Ukraine shot down an unarmed civilian airliner. Our de facto President barely acknowledged this. He was on his way to yet another fundraiser. Now we know the Russian Federation supplied the weapon the rebels used and even took it back into Russia. Barack Obama has barely answered this, and his answer lacks luster. All this goes to show his worst failing in the office he holds: he lacks leadership.

Israel invades Gaza

How should Israel feel about trusting Putin's Bitch?

Thirteen years of pseudo-war, continued terrorism, and lately unprovoked attacks came to an end today. Israel has now invaded Gaza, from land, sea and air. The only remaining question is: will they stay?

Israel to wait Hamas out?

How should Israel feel about trusting Putin's Bitch?

Can Israel wait Hamas out? That seems incredible. After all, Hamas now has rockets that let it reach all the way to the Dead Sea and almost to the Golan Heights to the north and Eilat to the south. But two experts, who should know, say Hamas started this latest war out of desperation. Desperate men lose more often than win. So maybe the leaders of Israel calculate wisely, to strike back only in the air (or with special forces) until Hamas runs out of missiles.

Israel in limbo about war

How should Israel feel about trusting Putin's Bitch?

The people of Israel are in a limbo of their own making. They suffer an unremitting and unprovoked attack. That attack would provoke almost any other country in the world to go to all-out war. But Israel will not. Or will it?

Articles of Impeachment

Constitution Day meme. Can Liberty Amendments serve that purpose?

There has been much talk lately about removing the man now occupying the White House through impeachment. Is that just political posturing or is it a valid point that is well-taken?

Jews not like Muslims

How should Israel feel about trusting Putin's Bitch?

Lorna Salzman, author of “Jews Behaving Like Muslims,” featured in the New English Review, claims “Zionists and observant Jews” complain like Muslims regarding The Death of Klinghoffer, an “opera” to be produced at the Met. Salzman, evidently an anti-Zionist and self-hating Jew, disregarded the spirit of the complaints. Rather, she uses moral relativism (trickery) to equate disparate events and reactions, villains with victims. The two cultures are disparate. (Observant) Jews don’t behave like Muslims.

Police state USA?

A Nashville Sheriff's Police Bearcat. Sign of a police state?

Is America turning into a police state? Is someone deliberately turning America into that? Several disturbing signs, each explainable by itself, form a chilling pattern. And the pattern might reach deeper in history than one administration.

Blue Thunder: next project?
