With neighbors like these....Mosaic Magazine - Tunnel Vision

Leave it to the gangsters and thugs from the Hamas in Gaza to never surrender, never quit trying to figure out ways to kill or injure Israelis.

As Israel has feared, building supplies intended for civilian use found there way into a tunnel over 1 mile long from Gaza under the Israeli border to the gates of a Jewish community.  What should one expect from those who brought Israel the saga of Gilad Shalit?

So, Israel will punish Hamas by limiting the importation of building supplies to organizations directly responsible for construction projects.  And they'll still be criticized.

Well, that's what I have to say.

Who's watching the hen house at the White House?

Douglas Murray at Gatestone Institute invites us to Bizarro world [OK, you have to have read Superman comics to know that in Bizarro world everything was backwards] asks:
Imagine that in recent weeks alone, dozens of Muslims around the world had been murdered by Christian extremists armed with suicide belts and similar paraphernalia.
Imagine that at the same time, around other parts of the world, Christian mobs had set fire to, and burned to the ground, the holy places of some of the oldest and most established Muslim communities in the world.
Do you think there would be a reaction to such events? Probably yes.
Would that reaction be wholly negative and unceasing in its condemnation? Probably yes.
Would it be remotely conceivable that a senior U.S. government official or advisor would have used the opportunity to claim that Muslims who had been targeted had brought it upon themselves? Probably no.
Welcome then to the mirror-image of the real-world persecution of Christians that is going on across the globe today.
And say hello again to two of the most appallingly over-promoted and sinister figures involved with the current U.S. government: Mohamed Elibiary and Dalia Mogahed.
Elibiary and Mogahed are shining lights in the Obama Administration's attempts to reconcile America's role in the world with its perceived bias towards thing Western.  Unfortunately, the president didn't pick the best of the best to assist him.

Well, that's what I have to say.
