The World Responds to American Weakness
Walter Russell Mead has a good piece on the current conflict between Israel and Hamas. He understands the war is now a wider conflict between the Muslim Brotherhood and Egypt, Saudi Arabia, & Israel, however he did spell out the real issue, which is Iran.
Obama is also to blame for this particular conflict in this way; the Saudi’s and Egyptian’s are furious for the situation in Iraq and the Obama administrations refusal to show resolve with respect to Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Additionally, Egypt is furious with the Obama administrations backing of the Morsi lead Muslim Brotherhood and displayed the distrust for the administration earlier this week when Secretary Kerry showed up to broker a ceasefire agreement and he and his staff were put through metal detectors, rarely do you get a more obvious demonstration of distrust than that.
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again the second reason this current conflict is raging on is Obama doesn’t know what he doesn’t know when he clearly showed he doesn’t know anything by having the FAA close down flights to Israel. The attempt to isolate Israel from the world, something he knows Israel deeply values, was amateur hour. He handed a victory so big to Hamas that it forces Israel to punish Hamas so harshly that any attempt to duplicate the victory will be met with consequences too painful to contemplate. Obama said ISIS was a JV team attempting to put a varsity uniform on, well he would know about JV teams because his lack of understanding about his decisions in the past are now coming home to roost.
This new factor is a military game-changer, and it greatly raised the stakes of the conflict. (The biggest political mistake of the war so far? The American officials who banned U.S. flights from using the airport made a cease fire much harder to obtain.)
Since the media is run by the Left and they have no understanding of the world outside their own bubbles it will be hard for the American people to understand the consequences they are seeing unfold around the world are or their own making. They elected a President who promised not to get involved around the world and while this may to the juvenile history has demonstrated this to be impossible. Europe has been on the wrong and weak side of history for 100 years and their fecklessness has proven to be deadly for the world.
The change in the status quo that led to war with Israel had nothing to do with Israel itself; what has happened is that Egypt has systematically intensified the blockade of Gaza, hoping to throttle Hamas, disrupt its support, and put enough economic pressure on Gaza to force Hamas from power.
For Hamas, the pre-war status quo was a death sentence, allowing Egypt to quietly strangle Gaza. The business networks dependent on smuggling were hurting, civil servants weren’t getting paid, and residents were increasingly unhappy with a lousy economy and no progress in sight. Hamas is a cornered animal striking out in desperation. A return to the status quo ante is not acceptable to Hamas, which feels it absolutely must gain some relief or it will go under.
Make no mistake American’s should understand if they wish to disengage from the world than don’t be surprised when the world decides they no longer need or want America for anything, you will then understand what poverty really is all about.

After Senator Ted Cruz’s warning that he would hold all State Department nominees until questions were answered about the political motive behind the FAA’s travel ban on Israel… the FAA suddenly reversed itself.
And this is data that Israellycool found using Al Jazeera’s data which is run by Qatar, a state sponsor of Hamas. The data finds that the vast majority of dead are male. These results are statically impossible if Israel were bombing a civilian population randomly or with the intent of inflicting civilian casualties.

Obama and Kerry don't know what they don't know
Since Obama got elected friends and family have argued over whether Obama is an evil genius whose instructions are being followed with precision or a bumbling fool who knows how to give a good speech?
When Obama first dipped his toes into the Middle East Conflict he told Israel they were no longer allowed to build in Israel, anywhere. In so doing I thought for sure this put Obama in the, he doesn't know what he doesn't know camp, because everyone living in Israel knows the Arabs are the ones who perform construction job and by stopping the building he is putting Arabs out of work. This fact should tell people the relationship between the two people is more complex than they imagine. The Arabs or Palestinian people don't have jobs in the area they wish to call home they have jobs because of the Jews.
Today the friends of Israel are Egypt, Saudi Arabia, & the United Arab Emirates, "Due to their recognition of the threat Hamas and its allies pose to the survivability of their regimes. Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have taken the unprecedented step of supporting Israel’s efforts to defeat Hamas."
They understand the tunnels must be destroyed and have kept silent while Israel goes about doing what it needs to do.
Qatar & Turkey are Israel's most outspoken enemies and the sponsors of Hamas, ISIS, al-Nusra, and the Muslim Brotherhood. So which side do you think the Obama regime is on, the terrorists. In insisting a ceasefire the Obama regime helps the bad guys by preventing the good guys from rooting out the hunkered down Hamas leadership, the advanced missile technology, & the extensive tunnel systems into Israel.
As Israel has uncovered the scope of Hamas’s infrastructure of murder and terror, the US has acted with the UN, Turkey and Qatar to pressure Israel (and Egypt) to agree to
a cease-fire and so end IDF operations against Hamas before the mission is completed.
To advance this goal, US Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Cairo on Monday night with an aggressive plan to force on Israel a cease-fire Hamas and its state sponsors will accept.
As former ambassador to the US Michael Oren told the media, it is clear that neither Israel nor Egypt invited Kerry to come over. Their avoidance of Kerry signals clearly that the US’s two most important allies in the Middle East do not trust US President Barack Obama’s intentions.
And their distrust is entirely reasonable.
The State Department has openly applauded Turkey and Qatar for their involvement in attempts to achieve a cease-fire. Last week Israeli officials alleged that the US was responsible for Hamas’s rejection of the Egyptian cease-fire proposal. By attempting to coerce Egypt to accept Qatar and Turkey as its partners in mediation, Obama signaled to Hamas’s leaders that they should hold out for a better deal.
People must wake up to Turkey & Qatar's double game. They are not pro-Western they only wish to use the relationship in order to keep the money flowing in order to fund their double game. Turkey's position with NATO is now a way in which to bring down the West.
Years ago many on the Left and the Right opposed the Bush administration's attempt to reward Qatar a US port contract thereby preventing Qatar a method to attack America from within, smart. Today however, "the US has chosen at this juncture in the operation – with Israel enjoying unprecedented support from the most important Sunni states in the region – to side with Hamas and its state sponsors in their demand for an immediate cease-fire speaks volumes about the transformation of US foreign policy under Obama’s leadership."
What a sad state of affairs for the world.

The Prism the Left Views the World
Krauthammer on John Kerry's (did you know he was in Vietnam????) and Juan Williams stupid, immature, childish, response to images created by Hamas for TV. A Quick question comes to mind, how is it possible 120 of the 300 killed taht day were children?! I'll tell you, for people like Juan Williams, Barak Obama, and John Kerry. Because they are the idiots whom Hamas uses to further their cause of Hitlarian revitalization. Hamas murders kids by using them as human shields for the sheep of the world. Depressingly, that number is very high. In allowing Hamas to get away with this heinous act Kerry and Williams become part of the conspiracy and THAT is as nice as I can put it.
Today we are being lead by people who claim they never knew a thing until they read the newspaper and a secretary of State who never met a person a moral issue he didn't have the wrong position to.
Here is a quote to Bibi Netanyahu from our Secretary of State, John Kerry: “When I fought in Vietnam, I used to look at the faces of the local population and the looks they gave us. I’ll never forget it. It gave me clarity that we saw the situation in completely different ways.”
The Left lives in the past, every war is viewed through the prism of Vietnam, every issue through race (The only correct position the Left has ever had, but for the wrong reasons. They did it to control blacks with the welfare state.) and every single issue is about them, I, I, I, I-yi, yi. They are narcissists. Imagine the Secretary of State is viewing conflicts through pictures, it would patently absurd if it were so scary. Hamas understands the mob mentality and that is exactly what they are doing.
Folks wisdom begins with the ears, not the eyes. In our daily prayer we are reminded not to let our heart be lured away with our eyes, once again demonstrating the wisdom of the ages. For the Left the world began and ended in the 1960's.

Correction Correction: I printed earlier that Putin annexed Kiev when it is actually Crimea.
Two Birds of the Same Feather...
I haven’t had a great deal of time to watch and read about the news in the past 2 weeks but sometimes that helps, I think this is one of those occasions. I’ve noticed a pattern which Obama and Putin operate in and they are very similar, the difference is the geography.
Obama is here to manage America’s decline and Putin is here is revive the Soviet Empire. They both use similar tactics, lying, subverting laws, and defying public opinions.
For example, Obama changes the laws in Obamacare to suit his and his party’s agenda. Obama is supposed to be faithfully executed the laws of the land not re-writing legislation. However, the opposition, party and the media would have to be calling them on it. Since they are not he gets away with it. As he did with lying about Benghazi, claiming executive privilege for his Attorney General Eric Holder in Fast & Furious and so on. The Republican Party is willing to stand up and yell about Obama’s weakness on the world stage but is silent on the home front, now I ask you who is the weak one? Obama does what he wants and ignores opposition and public opinion in order to execute his plan.
Putin aids, arms, and supports the separatist’s in Ukraine, annexes Kiev and, most recently, helps shoot a commercial airliner out of the air killing nearly 300 people. The world grumbles but does nothing, so Putin moves on with his plan ignoring Obama and world opinion.
Putin will continue with his stated goal of reviving the old Soviet empire while Obama will continue with his stated goal of “fundamentally transforming America.” No one should be shocked, neither man has lied about there stated goal, everything else they do in order to get to that goal is a lie or subversion but for two Leftist’s like Obama and Putin we should understand that truth is only a means to an end and these two men will use truth and lies as needed in order to achieve the end.
For the Left the march to barbarism follows the same rules, for Obama he defies the rule of law with executive actions while he smuggles guns to terrorists in Syria through Benghazi. Putin doesn’t bother with the subversion and just shoots down planes. Boko Haram and ISIS use and even shorter cut with suicide bombings and genocide.
The only reason people are more appalled with Putin, ISIS, & Boko Haram is because life and death are not as effective of tools for an American Leftist otherwise, just as is in the past, they would use it. Just like Bill Ayers, Stalin, and Hitler did. They were all Leftist dreamers who didn’t care how or what means so long as they work.
