Israel Goes to War Over Killing of Muslim Teenager

Mohammed Qaraqra, 14, killed by Syrian missile strike on Israel

Mohammed Qaraqra, 14, killed by Syrian missile strike on Israel

News reports are flying about airstrikes by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) inside Syria, the most serious response by Israel to cross-border violence in the past several years. The IDF response came after an Israeli teenager was killed by an anti-tank missile from Syria over the weekend. What few media outlets are reporting, however, is that the teenager whose death sparked the operation is an Arab–and Muslim–citizen of Israel.

Mohammed Qaraqra was 14 years old  (or 13, in some reports). His father is a civilian contractor for the Israeli Ministry of Defense. The international media routinely ignore the fact that roughly twenty percent of Israeli citizens are Arab, that the majority of those Arab citizens are Muslims, and that a small, significant number volunteer to serve in the IDF and defend Israel against its enemies (among other forms of public service).

The IDF itself has downplayed the ethnic and religious identity of the victim of the attack, wishing to stress instead the fact of his Israeli citizenship: “The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to breach Israel’s sovereignty and will act in order to safeguard the civilians of the State of Israel,” it said in a statement on its official blog. The IDF regards the attack as deliberate and intentional, and not a result of misdirected fire within Syria.

The town in which Qaraqra lived is almost entirely Muslim, and the Qaraqra family is one of the principal clans.

Over 20% of Israel’s population is Arab. Twelve percent of those are Muslim. Virtually all Muslim nations make it painfully clear that no Jews are allowed in their nation, and few live there, for long.

Red State Dems to Gabby Giffords, Mark Kelly: Please Stay Away

giffords_kelly 500x200

Red state Democrats who are fighting to overcome their support of gun control and get re-elected are asking gun control proponents Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly to stay out of their states.

This comes after Breibart News’ June 4 report that Giffords and Kelly planned to help Senators Mark Udall (D-CO), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), and Kay Hagan (D-NC) get re-elected this November.

Now Udall, Landrieu, and Hagan are pushing Giffords and Kelly to stay away from their races.

According to The Washington Times, the three incumbents are trying to keep gun control from erupting as a major issue in their contests, and they fear that is exactly what will happen once Giffords and Kelly join the fray.

An “activist” inside Giffords’ and Kelly’s Americans For Responsible Solutions admitted they are fully aware of the danger a gun control push can cause a candidate. However, they also claim politicizing gun issues can “[motivate] gun control supporters and [persuade] people to join the cause, especially among female voters.”

Obama Repealed ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ for Homosexuals, Then Applied It to Christians

USSoldiersPraying 500x200

Former presidential candidate and traditional values advocate Gary Bauer said on Friday that President Barack Obama’s homosexual “rights” agenda is threatening religious liberty in the U.S. military.

“On orders by the Obama administration, religion is under attack in the United States military,” Bauer said Friday at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority conference in Washington, D.C.

“Chaplains have been told not to proselytize,” Bauer said. “He’s repealed ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ for homosexuals and replaced it with ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ for Christians.”

Nearly Half Of Democrat-Run Detroit Water Customers Can’t Pay Their Bill

water faucet 500x200

Water department spokeswoman Curtrise Garner said the reality is that nearly half of Detroit Water and Sewerage customers can’t pay their bills; and that has led activists to lobby the UN to step up and take action.

“If they do contact us we are willing to speak with them,” she said, adding “We owe it to the customers that are paying to collect from those that aren’t. Somebody has to pay for the water.”

And while Garner says water is “a God-given right,” she says there is a cost to move water from the water resource to the customer and that the infrastructure costs money.

According to the Free Press, the average Detroit water bill is now $75 a month — much higher than the nation’s average rate of about $40.

PCUSA, once again, confirms that it’s only a sham, not a real church

abandoned-church 500x200

Mainline Protestantism, at least in its official curia, has been liberal for nearly 100 years. But for most of that century it was a thoughtful, dignified liberalism that still roughly adhered to historic Christianity’s moral architecture, even if it no longer upheld the core doctrine. But the yonder years of stately Protestantism, at least in the old Mainline, are largely over. And this week, the 1.7 million member PCUSA suffered a meltdown, authorizing clergy to conduct same sex unions, reaffirming its commitment to largely unrestricted abortion rights, and voting to divest from three firms doing business with Israel.

The church’s redefinition of marriage, by a 71-29 percent vote, got the most attention, although it was anticlimactic. Sexual liberalism captured the denomination in 2010, when the PCUSA voted to abandon its expectation of monogamy in marriage and celibacy in singleness for its clergy. Since then, hundreds of congregations have quit, organized conservative resistance largely stopped, and the 2012 General Assembly was expected to authorize same sex unions but fell short. In just the last two years, the PCUSA lost nearly 200,000 members, a rate, which if continued, would mean no more PCUSA in less than 20 years.

78 percent of the PCUSA General Assembly struck down a resolution condemning the killing of babies born alive during abortions, as occurred with notorious abortionist Kermit Gosnell. Initiated by the South Alabama presbytery, it called for inclusion of pro-life Presbyterians and an investigation into doctrinal and financial support of abortion. Dissenters cited pro-abortion stances, while others noted past affirmation of viable babies and reservations in commenting on criminal cases.

Obamacare Looking Even Better For Big Insurers, While Most Customers To See Rate Hikes

health-insurance 500x200

Moody’s is optimistic about insurers’ credit ratings, noting that more insurers are expected to join Obamacare exchanges or offer more plans — and fewer enrollees for each insurer is likely to be beneficial, given early reports that Obamacare customers’ are sicker and costlier to insure than other insurance pools.

“Since the policy-buying population has an unknown medical status and potentially unfavorable risk characteristics, less membership, and therefore less risk, is credit positive,” Moody’s concluded.

And insurers aren’t prioritizing actually expanding health coverage to many more people, according to the report. Large insurers are boosting their premiums after generally losing money or breaking even with their first year of customers, according to the report.

“The premium increases show that insurers have chosen to protect earnings margins rather than push membership growth,” Moody’s wrote.

The continued premium hikes aren’t surprising, according to the memo, as medical costs are still rising post-Obamacare, despite the Obama administration’s promise that it would lower costs. With new Obamacare taxes going into effect every year, many of which will be passed onto consumers, it’s unlikely premiums will be lowered anytime soon.

Translation: Less Membership: fewer people have health insurance, Premium Increase: the few who do are paying more for it.

So the very problem Obama and his Liberal cronies claimed ObamaCare would solve, have actually been made much, much worse.

Bitter, Delusional Hillary Snaps at Reporter: “It’s my turn…I deserve it”

hillary-insane 500x200

Samuel Rosales-Avila of La Habra California, was writing a feature of Ms. Clinton focused on how a Clinton presidency would influence Hispanic Americans. Mr. Rosales-Avila was in for a shock, however, as the interview he was so excited to have landed began:

I started asking Ms. Clinton questions. Mostly policy stuff, really focused on immigration. She was responding, but seemed a little off. I figured she was just distracted and didn’t feel like it was worth her time. I kept going, but was starting to get frustrated. I decided I would ask her something I hadn’t really planned on. I said, ‘Ms. Clinton, some have suggested that you aren’t healthy enough or are too old to pursue the presidency. Do you have a comment on that?’.

I knew I had crossed a line for her right away.

She snapped back, ‘It’s my turn. I’ve done my time, and I deserve it.’ Then she stormed off.

After she left, one of her handlers came up to me and told me he would need the recording of our interview and that it was now ‘off the record’. I was shocked and disappointed, but it was clear that it wasn’t a negotiation.

Neuroscientist and aging expert Dr. Philip Kao suggests that this angry reaction and sudden divergence from her manicured talking points may be an early sign of dementia:

Ms. Clinton is a disciplined, seasoned politician. It is really surprising to me that she would slip up like that in such a low stakes environment. As a doctor, that causes me some concern that there may be something wrong. This is an individual who has spent most of her life perfecting her public persona and has given thousands of interviews. A slip up like this really indicates to me that some faculties may be declining. These minor events of confusion and anger are often the first signs of dementia.

The Obama Legacy: More Babies Aborted Than Jobs Created

Barack-Obama2 500x200

Former presidential candidate and conservative-values advocate Gary Bauer said President Barack Obama’s legacy should be the fruit of his pro-abortion policies: more killed by abortion than the number of jobs created.

“This ought to be the epitaph of this administration: In the last five years under this president more babies have been aborted than jobs have been created,” Bauer said on Friday at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority conference in Washington, D.C.

“Now that is a good summary of this president,” said Bauer, who is president of the nonprofit American Values. “Few things make Barack Obama more passionate than abortion on demand.”

About 1.2 million babies were aborted surgically in the United States in 2008 (or about 100,000 per month), according to the Guttmacher Institute. If that number has stayed generally constant, then over the last five and a half years of the Obama administration, about 6.6 million babies have been aborted.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics seasonally-adjusted employment numbers, there were 142,152,000 million people employed in January 2009, when Obama was inaugurated. In May 2014, the latest month on record, there were 145,814,000 people employed–an increase of 3,662,000 million.
