    No CeaseFire With Evil

    Mosab Hassan Yousef, a Hamas defector who worked for 10 years as an informer for the Shin Bet, explained to CNN last week that, for Gaza’s rulers, human life is of no consequence. “Hamas does not care about the lives of Palestinians, or the lives of Israelis, or Americans; they don’t care about their own lives,” Yousef said. “They consider dying for their ideology a way of worship. “Hamas is not seeking coexistence and compromise; Hamas is seeking conquest,” he added. “The destruction of the state of Israel is not the Hamas final destination.” “In the mosques, Hamas told us… Read more »

    If Obama is calling for a cease fire that means that Israel is beating the daylights out of Hamas. Go IDF.

    He secretly hates the Jews. Why doesn’t he call for an immediate cease fire with russia and Ukraine??? Obama should live in Israel, and see what it’s like.

    Every normal person knows who Obama is. Its not a secret and his plans against not only Jews but… are not a secret anymore. Which is good, evil shows his face. But Russian president is same level of evil. Thats why Obama got his kick in his face from Putin. We don’t need ether Obama or anyone like him to live in Israel, excuse me! Let them be judged by Hashem immediately!

    That no other army will do what the IDF is doing to avoid civilian casualties. Even soldiers are putting their own lives at risk when warning as the terrorists get a warning, too.

    This message needs to spread to the world

    Stop with the nonsense.

    The Gaza fiasco happened under BUSH. That’s right, BUSH. Hamas was elected to govern Gaza due to Bush’s incessant pressure that there be elections by the citizens of Gaza.

    If we had Romney, he’d be doing the same as Obama — asking for a ceasefire.

    I’ve said this a million times and I will say it again. Israel needs to MAN UP and do the right thing. The U.S. will support Israel REGARDLESS of the threats.

    Stop worrying about what the media is saying or international pressure, NETANYAHU, MAN UP AND DEFEND ISRAEL!

    Are you an Obama supporter? All I was saying was that Obama is not showing enough support for Israel and if Romney were President he would back Israel and not pressure any cease fire, and let Israel do what it needs to defend itself.

    My point was: Obama should go to Israel to see what its like to live under constant rocket attack I never said he should actually live there.

    Why doesn’t Obama make a truce with the Taliban? Or why do people not point out that we were attacked on one day and have been at war for years with over 120,000 civilian deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan?? Ridiculous! Moshiach is for sure on his way!

    No, I voted for McCain in 2008 and for Romney in 2012. I disagree with Obama on his economic and some other policies.

    Regarding Israel, you are delusional if you believe that Obama is any different than Bush, Clinton, Reagan etc. etc.

    Obama said the exact same things that his predecessors have said: “Israel has a right to defend itself… but…we hope for a ceasefire in the region”.

    Find me an iota of proof that Obama has been any worse on Israeli policy than Bush, and I will concede with your analysis about Mitt Romney.

    Bibi worse than Obama

    Obama was born Muslim so his identity with Hamas is par for the course, however Bibi was born jewish and he should be acting in the best interests of the Jewish people and not bend over backwards to any iota of pressure.

    Doesn’t everyone realize by now that Israel will always go it alone? No one will help. We have no one to rely on. We are the lone soldier. We only have to help and protect each other . No one out there cares about us. They hate and are jealous of us. Eisov sone as Yaakov. It has been like this since the world was made. The rebbe said we have to not give in and. Defend our homes. Public opinion will not be for us no matter what we do. So hashem you have to defend your children, our… Read more »

    Agreed. Israel should NOT give in to international pressure and do what they need to do to protect themselves.

    By the same token, don’t be a Kafuy Tov. The U.S. has funded and provided Israel with the Iron Dome missiles they are using to shoot down the rockets. Be grateful for that.

    To our heimisheh political pundits...

    Which of the American presidents was better for Israel is a moot question at this point; best to keep it simple and stick to the old, from-the-gut, point of reference: “Is [it] [s/he] likely to be good for the Jews or bad for the Jews?” If we’ve learned anything at all it’s that we need do a good deal of homework before we vote, regardless of lifelong party leanings; and while we’re never guaranteed that we’d be making the right decision, we need to do our best to minimize negative surprises. For example, given his upbringing and the cronies he… Read more »

    They give money for Iron Dome missiles, and fund Hamas with money to purchase rockets and build tunnels. Bibi will finish the job. Obama should go play golf in Gaza.

    Wow, Obama, you're really smart.

    Wow, Obama, you're really smart.

    You say that Israel has a right to defend itself and that we have to demilitarize Hamas. But you say that we need to agree to an unconditional, immediate (one-sided) ceasefire. Do you think that demilitarizing Hamas will happen automatically? Or perhaps you think that they will be so grateful that we are sparing their citizens from the emotional trauma that our citizens are going through, that they will smile sweetly and hand over all their weapons. THE IDF IS DEMILITARIZING GAZA. And until we finish doing so, there can be no ceasefire and no security for Israel. Just how… Read more »

    It is sickening to see all the petty anti-obama rhetoric from frum Jews when he has done nothing different than former, republican presidents. You are doing yourselves no favors with the baseless hatred and racism, especially shluchim with a facebook presence! Use your own sechel, not Rush Limbaugh’s!

    Yes, he has done something different. Its not racist its simply a disagreement of his actions and polivies. I dont think you are fully aware of how Obama is acting as president now, go read the news and see, because clearly you are not fully aware. For instance, Obama administration gave money to a terroeist organization in Gaza, and they used all the money to build tunnels. Also, who goes fundraising at a time of war?!!!
