HAMAS enforces lies

Hamas Damascus rally

HAMAS (Ḥarakat al-Muqāwamah al-ʾIslāmiyyah, or Islamic Resistance Movement, or, as the word means in Arabic, “enthusiasm”) bears all the blame for civilian deaths in Gaza. They did more than start the war in Gaza. (In fact they’ve been at war with Israel since their founding, as their charter demands.) They do indeed launch rockets, and even run their war, from civilian areas. And they try to stop reporters from telling that story. Meanwhile, the world ignores Israeli efforts to keep the misery to a minimum.

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 At that hour, the FAA rescinded its ban on all travel to and from David Ben-Gurion Airport by U.S.-flag airliners.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?

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.)

Israel invades Gaza

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?

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

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?

Thad Cochran will lose anyway

Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) can’t win the general election. His campaign did many disgusting and possibly illegal things. But suppose he wins the legal battles to come? Suppose no judge or jury can or will convict him or his campaign? He still can’t win. Because he laid himself wide-open to a common Democratic attack. So CNAV repeats: he will wind up hoist by his own petard.

Thad Cochran: specious story

The campaign staff of Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss) vigorously deny buying votes with direct cash payments. But the key witness in this affair has four text messages that speak to such payments. Yesterday the chief spokesman for the Thad Cochran campaign tried to explain them away. And his explanations are worse than specious.

Thad Cochran: more evidence

Ballot box. The Electoral College compact relies on stuffing this.

Evidence continues to mount against Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.). Yesterday a witness came forward and charged that Thad Cochran paid voters to vote in the Republican runoff. If this charge holds, then Thad Cochran could lose the nomination by default. He might also face expulsion from the United States Senate. Either way, he would find himself hoist by his own petard.

Hobby Lobby wins for us all

Supreme Court rules for Hobby Lobby

The Hobby Lobby store chain, and more particularly the family that holds all its shares, won their case before the United States Supreme Court. They do not have to give any good or service, as a benefit to those who work for them, when such giving would break their religious faith.
