In Case You Missed It

In case you missed them, here are our top stories for the week of October 9th through October 15.

This week started out with commentary on a vicious terrorist attack by Hamas against innocent civilians. As we write this, 29 Americans are dead and 17 still missing. Israel has suffered more egregiously with the death toll up to 1300. Among the atrocities committed were babies being beheaded and others incinerated alive. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has declared war on Hamas and has pledged to rid Gaza of them and all their ability to conduct terrorist attacks. 

Dana Pico writes: Israel Is Great, Militarily, But Let’s Tell the Truth Here: They Have Proven to Be Poor Conquerors.

John DiLeo writes to the issue of “proportionality,” as Israel goes on the offensive by shelling military targets in Gaza in preparation for a ground attack.

John Green has his own thoughts on “proportionality,” and they are pretty grim.

Elizabeth Vaughn believes it’s only a matter of time before Joe Biden turns to a squish on response to Hamas terrorism.

Dave Cloft points out the elephant in the room; Hamas is Iran’s Proxy in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Ron Yates argues that Iran is doing what China wants: Creating Chaos in the Middle East

U.S. Air Force Colonel (Retired) Art Cole, reminds us that appeasement has always failed. Beginning with Obama’s Middle East policies and Joe’s continuance of them, Iran has now more freedom to foment terrorism than ever before.

Dave Cloft points out that the recent tragedy in Israel has sparked intense debates about their government’s approach to gun control. As a staunch supporter of personal freedoms, I argue that the Israeli government’s strict gun control regulations may have  contributed to the recent tragic events.

As grim as this weeks events have been, we still need to lighten up somewhat, if nothing more than to clear our heads for the battles looming. Dave Cloft continues his Basement Joe series here, here and here.

Sean Dietrich graciously allowed us to reprint this bit of inspiration: Your Life

This morning I started thinking about you. Mainly, I was thinking about what you’re going through right now. Whoever you are.

Finally, Teresa Ford asks us to Light a Candle for Israel
