The cease-fire agreement that Israel accepted Wednesday night to end
the current round of Palestinian rocket and missile attacks is not a
good deal for Israel by any stretch of the imagination.
At best, Israel and Hamas are placed on the same moral plane. The
cease-fire erases the distinction between Israel, a peace-seeking
liberal democracy that wants simply to defend its citizens, and Hamas,
a genocidal jihadist terrorist outfit that seeks the eradication of the
Jewish people and the destruction of Israel.

www.geraldahonigman.com Here in America, I am writing this while my family rests from a festive meal. It is Thanksgiving Day, and we must all certainly count the blessings which G_d has bestowed upon us. No doubt, the primary blessing is life itself–so if the newest ceasefire between Arab and Jew in the Middle East saves [...]

Obama’s holiday remarks skip mentioning God
Friday, November 23, 2012
During his fourth Thanksgiving presidential address, President Obama referenced the recent, long and bruising campaign season, urged the country to unite behind his administration and, for the fourth year running, neglected to offer verbal thanks to God. Read more…

http://frontpagemag.com/2012/dgreenfield/there-is-no-ceasefire/print/ The ceasefire began the way that the war did; with a flight of rockets falling from the sky over Israel’s battered south where working class families wait to learn if they will have to spend the night in safe rooms and shelters. There is no ceasefire, despite declarations from the international community to the [...]
http://frontpagemag.com/2012/david-goldman/obama-legitimizes-morsis-protection-racket/ Hamas fires 275 rockets at Israel and is rewarded with de facto acceptance as a legitimate negotiating partner in the Middle East peace process, as well as with a relaxation of the Israeli blockade of the Gaza coast.

The Absurdity of Treating a Terrorist Gang Like a State
The currently suspended missile duel between Israel and Hamas exposes yet again the surreal absurdity of the way the international community handles this conflict between a democratic state and a terrorist gang. Yesterday’s cease-fire agreement between Israel and Hamas is another example of the folly of treating a bunch of murderers like a legitimate government.
Consider, for example, the way a terrorist outfit like Hamas, self-defined in its charter by its genocidal goals, is treated as if it were a legitimate state. But Hamas is not a government that rules over a sovereign territory defined by international borders. If you want a recent graphic illustration of Hamas’ true nature, peruse this video of the aftermath of the summary execution of 6 accused “collaborators.” Or consider Hamas’ official television coverage of this week’s terrorist bombing of a bus in Israel. Or contemplate the barbarity of using its own “citizens” as human shields for its munitions dumps and rocket launchers. Calling Hamas honcho Ismail Haniyeh a “Prime Minister,” as virtually every world government and news organization does, doesn’t mean he is actually a prime minister, no matter how many elections are held. These titles and voting procedures do not constitute a legitimate government that should be recognized as such by the world community as though it respects international laws and treaties like the Geneva Conventions. Let alone should this façade of political legitimacy rationalize the millions of dollars Western governments give to Hamas under the guise of U.N. aid for social services, freeing up funds for purchasing weapons and munitions.

IS “MILITANTS” THE POLITICALLY CORRECT WORD FOR BARBARIAN SAVAGE?….RSK
Al Shabaab militants monitored home Bible studies of boy’s family.
NAIROBI, Kenya, October 19 (CDN) — Militants from the Islamic extremist al Shabaab beheaded a 17-year-old Somali Christian near Mogadishu last month, a journalist in the Somali capital told Compass.
The militants, who have vowed to rid Somalia of Christianity, killed Guled Jama Muktar on Sept. 25 in his home near Deynile, about 20 kilometers (12 miles) from Mogadishu. The Islamic extremist group had been monitoring his family since the Christians arrived in Somalia from Kenya in 2008, said the source in Mogadishu, who requested anonymity.
The Islamic militants, who are fighting the transitional government for control of the country, knew from their observations of the family that they were Christians, the source said.
“I personally know this family as Christians who used to have secret Bible meetings in their house,” he said.
Based on talks with the boy’s parents and their neighbors, the source said al Shabaab members arrived at Muktar’s home at 6 a.m., when his parents, whose names are withheld for security reasons, were already at work at their retail space at the Hamarweyne market on the outskirts of Mogadishu.
