President Biden’s suggestion of a ceasefire is being ignored, and understandably, since most Western liberals who call for ceasefires in the Middle East really mean that Israel should refrain from responding with deadly force when its own people are attacked without provocation. In this case, not only are attacks continuing to come from Gaza, but there were reports of missiles being fired at Israel from Lebanon as well.
The Washington Post seems upset that Israel’s Iron Dome defense is working so well. Even though it saves innocent Israeli lives, and prevents a bloody ground war that would kill innocent Palestinians, it prevents Israel from having to knuckle under to international pressure to compromise with terrorists, which is a bad thing, apparently. Incidentally, this is a two-fer of dumb liberal know-it-all-ism, since it also reminds us that the liberal “fact-checkers” of the Reagan era assured us that missile defense systems like Iron Dome, which they derided as trying to “shoot a bullet with a bullet,” were physically impossible.
Israel announced that its fighter jets had destroyed a length of Hamas’ terrorist tunnels equal to “163 football fields, 46 Eiffel Towers, 34 Empire State Buildings, 18 Burj Khalifas, and nearly 2 Mount Everests.” They said that’s 9.3 miles of tunnels that can no longer be used to facilitate terrorist strikes.
The IDF is also targeting structures used by Hamas, which includes liquidating a number of top terrorist leaders. One of them killed on Monday afternoon was Hussam Abu Harbid, aka “Abu Ubaida,” the commander of the Northern Brigade of the Saraya al-Quds, the armed wing of the Palestine Islamic Jihad. The Islamic Jihad confirmed his death, calling him a “beloved martyr.”
Ironically, he’s believed to have been one of the top planners of the missile strikes on Israeli citizens that set off this massive retaliation, as well as a number of previous such attacks going back 15 years. The IDF tweeted, “He won’t be committing any more terrorist attacks.”
Speaking of Israel destroying buildings that Hamas uses to plan terror attacks, that story from the Associated Press about them being “shocked and horrified” that Israel destroyed their building and that they had no idea Hamas supposedly met there has just been blown up like a Hamas terrorist leader. Someone dug up an A.P. article from 2014 that reported that Hamas regularly operated in and around the A.P. office in Gaza.
And while we’re at it, here’s more on how A.P. operatives in Gaza actively slant their reporting to cover up for Hamas and make Israel look like the violent oppressors. So cry us a river about your office being a pile of rubble.

After seeing 5 Oregon counties wanting to transfer to Idaho, I think there should be a movement for other counties in every state in America to be able to transfer to a nearby state, pretty soon all this nonsense and proxy voting will ultimately lead to fewer democrats, and Countries like Israel would have the American support that is actually already there.
Israel has American support, just not from the corrupt politicians.

Hooray for Israel . Take a look in the Holy Bible (if you even own one) and see what it says about Israel. And talk about discrimination ! You defend terrorists as victims and call Israel evil! Wow! Wonder what you liberals would respond if someone were to fire a rocket(s) onto your house and property?! I know you Lin’s wouldn’t just sit there take it! May God bless Israel. !!

Israel has every right to defend itsself when attacked. Their enemy is being fueled by Iran and Iran doesn't accept Israel as a nation and wants to wipe them off the map. America would fight with all she had too. Go Israel!

It's an outright shame how Biden is handling Israel, our most closest allie. This guy is out to lunch on all policies! I pray for Israel.
