An Israeli mother pleads for help. Plus, everything you need to know about Hamas's war—and the U.S. response so far.
It's amazing to me that anyone who supports Israel as a sovereign nation state can still vote for any democrat period.
Rashida Tlaib - "As long as our country provides billions in unconditional funding to support the apartheid government, this cycle of violence will continue."
The Biden administration continues to fund and protect Iran to the tune of billions of dollars. Two weeks ago the administration green lighted $16 billion in frozen assets to the Iranian regime that has financed and supported Hamas for for years.
I've simply lost count on number of ways the Biden administration can f*ck things up.....I'm fully confident they won't let us down here either.
Whatever you think of Donald Trump - and there are certainly reasons to dislike him, this invasion by Hamas would not have happened with him in office. He is unequivocally and unabashedly a friend of Israel. If this also describes you, and support for Israel is a high priority for you, you must hold your nose and vote for Trump whatever your other misgivings.
Bari, I’m looking at you.
At this point, our administration is incompetent to the point of being purposely malicious.
Hamas is armed by the Iranians (to whom we gave billions under the Obama and Biden regimes) and armed with US equipment from Afghanistan.
The United States government has the blood of Zion on its hands. God help us all.
Biden's people have been funding Hamas--something Trump stopped--and just sent a regime that is arresting, torturing, raping and in at least one case killing women who refuse to accept the role of inferior their Islamic society imposes on them, $6 billion. Do you not think that will prove useful in finishing off opposition to a regime most Iranians loathe? Do you not think it helped fund these attacks?
And what about the weapons Joe Biden's people left in Afghanistan? Trump had a signed peace deal CONTINGENT on the Taliban staying in Pakistan. He never, ever, ever would have left not just hundreds of thousands of weapons but stacks of cash laying around. That whole thing looked like, and probably was, the result of a bribe paid to Biden, Inc.
And without being able to assess the plausibility of this story, I read yesterday that we left a lot of high tech stuff laying around too, including phones with various levels of cryptological capabilities. The story I read said they may have helped with the hacks.
What is really obvious beyond debate is that Democrats ARE friends to everyone who hates America, and are for all intents and purposes enemies of the Israeli nation.
And one quick point: the Israelis could kill every last Gazan and citizen of the West Bank in an hour. Saying their regime is "genocidal" is so imbecilic it should be impossible for anybody who made it out of 8th grade, even if they could not afford shoes to wear to school.
"We can forgive Arabs for killing our children, but we can't forgive them for forcing us to kill their children. We will only have peace with the Arabs when they learn to love their children more than they hate us." -- Golda Meir
Thank you, to the entire Free Press team, for what you are doing.
We returned home from Israel on Thursday , inspired by the beautiful life our son and daughter in love had created for their children in the Promised Land. Today our hearts are heavy while we hang on every word from the freedom fighters of The Free Press. May you go from strength to strength.
I've always been an isolationist. I don't support the war in Ukraine. I really want the US to broker a peace deal there. And yet my first reaction to this attack, when the death toll was at 200, I told my husband "they need to kill 1000 Palestinians to teach them a lesson". I'm not Jewish and I feel bad that my reaction was so bloodthirsty but there is something seriously wrong with these terrorist ideologies and I think that most Palestinians support terrorism. I used to think a two state solution was desirable but the last 40 years has made me believe that is not possible. Terrorists do not want peace and we are all just fooling ourselves if we keep thinking there is a way to make peace with the Palestinians. They need to be forcibly moved to Arab lands and the international community needs to move on. The idea that there are "refugee camps" for 75 years with multi-story structures is laughable. The UN has funded this farce for years. Billions of dollars are spent on UN employees and services which are then funneled into the terrorists. The Palestinians have rejected every opportunity for peace. If Iran or Ethiopia or the UK or Nicaragua or even the US thinks that the Palestinians need a homeland then they can provide it to them. Don't think they would be as keen.
To Bari, et al: the greatest of sympathy. I know you must be traumatized; first the Tree of Life attack in your hometown of Pittsburgh, now this.
Unlike the Alleged President, the "Squad" - which I call "The Squat," and others in the Swamp, I called my Jewish friends to offer support the day of the attack, no matter their politics. One is a yellow-dog Democrat. Although I had the tact not to mention it to him, I hope that he and many other Jews will at least use this atrocity to get their political heads on straight.
This administration is directly responsible for all of this. Begging for oil. Buying hostages, kneeling to dictators demands and wants. Looking in the other direction as genocide is committed in Africa. Not telling Russia hands off Ukraine years ago. Trafficking of humans on our own border. Our cities being destroyed by "illegal, yes illegal" immigrants, thanks to the Dems. Kissing China's ass and letting them kill Americans with fentanyl, all the while Blinken, Biden (sleepy), Austin (doopey), and all of the other dwarf minded idiots barbecue with a band at the White House. Mr. President, children captured, over 700 dead, yeah a shame, get me another burger and don't skimp on the chips. Then Whitmore, the squad of idiots, and the woke groups at colleges and someone like Tribe at Harvard all give their useless two cents and then blame those being attacked. Have we ever had a more useless and gutless administration. Don't believe, just jump back to Afghanistan.
Time to destroy the evil in the world and don't care what continent they are on. Israel needs be told, kill them and do what is needed to end this. Then we need to tell Iran, your ass is next if you or the evil thugs in Lebanon want to join in. Oh yeah, another of your boats harasses or tries to capture a ship in free seas, it will become an artificial reef. Yet the squad and the idiots will get elected again. Thousands dead, worldwide chaos, sad, but you know we need school loans relief, abortion, and how about those tranny issues and using women sports and bathrooms to feed our sickness? Plus no mean tweets anymore. That's what counts.
No wonder our country suffers from self-inflicted diseases.
I've studied the Holocaust quite a bit. It was so much uglier and more vicious than just the gas chambers.
What the Islamists do is relatively comparable to what the Einzatzgruppen did to the Jews -- a knock on the door, murder the father in front of the family, take the rest and put them on a train or, in the modern version, a golf cart or Toyota truck.
I'm not into "heartbreaking" or "tragedy. "I'm into good old fashioned eye-for-an-eye. Hamas types hide in apartment buildings. Sorry neighbors. They store guns and tunnel entrances in mosques. Sorry fellas.
It's time for good old fashioned ruthlessness. Yes, the history- and fact-free "Palestinian rights" types and faculties will protest the violence, but in the past when Israel responds, the world "condemns the violence on both side."
Too bad. Go for it Israel. Be merciless.
Would a better term for this tragedy be "pogrom" that turned into a war? This is the quintessential Jewish nightmare for centuries: To be dragged, killed, murdered and slaughtered while in your own home? I am so afraid and see my son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren in Israel....
Your coverage is superb and I applaud your strength and commitment during this brutally painful time. I stand behind Israel.
Thank you for your honest coverage! We need it now more than ever when evil is being given the place of victimhood.
I’m glad to be a Free Press supporter. Keep up the excellent work! I believe the administration has proof that Iran was directly involved in the Hamas attack. It needs to say so and take action. I hope the Biden administration finally stands up for Israel and tells the truth about what kind of a country Iran is.
Thank you for your coverage.
Admittedly, I am feeling a bit helpless on how best to support aside from sharing these stories far and wide.
Bari - please share with us reputable aid organizations to help our fellow human beings in Israel.
