Officials: U.S. believes Gaza blockade untenable

WASHINGTON – The Obama administration believes Israel’s blockade of Gaza is untenable and wants to see a new approach that would allow more supplies into the impoverished Palestinian area while guaranteeing Israel’s security, The New York Times reported Thursday.

On Monday, Israeli commandos raided a flotilla of ships — that sought to run the Israeli blockade and deliver aid — in an operation that killed nine people.

White House officials said that the raid gave strength to a growing consensus within the administration that U.S. and Israeli policy toward Gaza must change, the Times said.

“There is no question that we need a new approach to Gaza,� one official told the newspaper, which said he spoke on the condition of anonymity because the policy shift was still in the early stages.

Officials: U.S. believes Gaza blockade untenable

Untenable? Or undesirable if you happen to be a Muslim loving POTUS?

untenable – adjective
1. incapable of being defended, as an argument, thesis, etc.; indefensible.
2. not fit to be occupied, as an apartment, house, etc.

Since we’re obviously not talking about an apartment I have to presume that the government means untenable defined as incapable of being defended. That sounds about right, sounds like what we’ve come to expect from the Obama regime and the gutless, Muslim loving man-child known as Barack Hussein Obama, aka: Barry Soetoro.

However, the paper said he was reflecting a broadly held view in the upper reaches of the administration. The official stressed that any new approach would have to ensure Israel’s security, while allowing more supplies into the impoverished Palestinian area.

The Palestinians are a pestilence that even the Arab world doesn’t want.

Impoverished? Only because every time they get a shipment of food or medicine they also get a few rockets and bombs and then launch an unprovoked attack on the Israeli people.

Israel has given up more to Palestine than all of the Arab nations combined. Israel has made every effort to have a peaceful existence with neighboring Palestine. So far, Israeli efforts have been ignored. By Palestine, Arabs in general, and most noticeably by the Obama administration.

In a separate statement, White House officials said they had warned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government to use “caution and restraint” before the raid on the aid convoy.

“We communicated with Israel through multiple channels many times regarding the flotilla,” P.J. Crowley, a State Department spokesman, said in a statement issued in response to a question from The Washington Post.

“We emphasized caution and restraint given the anticipated presence of civilians, including American citizens,” Crowley told the newspaper.

If American citizens were on ANY boat carrying supplies to Palestine, they need to be sunk right along with the rest of the garbage.

Israel has a right to sovereignty. Israel has a right to safety and security. The American people would do well to support Israel in their efforts. If America doesn’t support Israel, if Israel is allowed to fall to the Palestinians, and other Islamic terrorist groups, all because our Muslim loving POTUS doesn’t have the BALLS to take a stand and fight, then believe me, We, The People are next on the list!

Rights group: Israel uses incendiary bombs in Gaza

Rights group: Israel uses incendiary bombs in Gaza

JERUSALEM (AP) – Human Rights Watch said Sunday that Israel’s military has fired artillery shells with the incendiary agent white phosphorus into Gaza and a doctor there said the chemical was suspected in the case of 10 burn victims who had skin peeling off their faces and bodies.

Researchers in Israel from the rights group witnessed hours of artillery bombardments that sent trails of burning smoke indicating white phosphorus over the Jebaliya refugee camp in northern Gaza. But they could not confirm injuries on the ground because they have been barred from entering the territory.

The chief doctor at Nasser Hospital in southern Gaza said he treated several victims there with serious burns that might have been caused by phosphorus. He said, however, that he did not have the resources or expertise to say with certainty what caused the injuries.

The substance can cause serious burns if it touches the skin and can spark fires on the ground, the rights group said in a written statement calling on Israel not to use it in crowded areas of Gaza.

Israel shells near UN school, killing at least 30

Israel shells near UN school, killing at least 30

GAZA CITY, Gaza (AP) – Israeli mortar shells struck outside a U.N. school where hundreds of Palestinians had sought refuge on Tuesday, killing at least 30 people – many of them children whose parents wailed in grief at a hospital filled with dead and wounded.

The Israeli army said its soldiers came under fire from militants hiding in the school and responded. It accused Gaza’s Hamas rulers of “cynically” using civilians as human shields. Residents confirmed the account, saying militants were seen staging attacks from the area.

Despite international criticism over civilian deaths and a diplomatic push to broker a cease-fire, Israeli said it would push on with the offensive against Hamas.

Israeli ground forces edged closer to two major Gaza towns, and a total of 70 Palestinians were killed Tuesday – with just two confirmed as militants, health officials in Gaza said. A top U.N. official called for an investigation into the civilian death toll.

The Israelis will be roundly criticized for this attack I am sure. The Hamas fighter, and Islam in general seem to think that is ALL they have to do to change minds and opinions. Criticize Israel!

Think again ragheads! Some of us KNOW how you people fight. You are cowards and you use woman and children as *human shields* in an effort to save your sorry asses from being killed by soldiers, uniformed, well trained and well disciplined soldiers! And it would appear that this time around, Israel is not only wise to your cowardly ways but is ignoring your ploys and attacking you and yours anyway!

To the Israelis I say this, DO NOT STOP! This is a battle that MUST be seen through to a victorious and indisputable conclusion. A total VICTORY by the Army of Israel.

I venture to say, if Israel doesn’t pursue this action to a proper conclusion, it’s only a matter of time until the Palestinians and Hamas renew their rocket attacks and homicide bombings! That is NOT an acceptable scenario!
