those of us in Israel are more concerned about the insanity that is Syria at the moment.
Actually, we trust our military to defend us.
I'm pretty sure it's not the Military that IGgy doesn't trust. ;-)
Ok, now you're just *daring* the MIB to show up.....
hope is different from intent.
Even supposedly pro-Israel Fox News won't report this,
Syrians are being brought into Israel every day to get medical treatment.
Here's one story from the doctor treating a young Syrian girl:
hm, the name of the killed israeli boy next to the syrian border sounds pretty arabic to me?
Muhammed. Yes. Muslim boy. But he was an Israeli citizen, so he's probably an infidel as far as they're concerned.
As far as we're concerned, they killed a citizen and a child. period.
yes. and I guess this sad news sends out (world wide heard) an historically unparalelled message: The israeli state cares for its citizens regardles of Muslim or Jew.
There's been backlash from (Jewish) citizens that the government has not done enough to comfort/console the family.
Moreover, there's been a lot of criticism that none of the parliament members who are Arab went to the funeral (The Jewish ones may have had concerns for their personal safety, sadly, but there are 12 members of the Knesset who would have no such concern, and didn't attend anyway.)
we (heart) infidels
Israel is his country - for all we know, the father was born here, too.
The country is reeling from the news that the bodies of the kidnapped boys were found.
The feeling is palpable. The radio is playing quiet music. The news reports are more subdued. My Facebook feed is filled with funeral details (the boys will be buried in the cemetery in Modiin, my hometown), pictures of the boys, and political statements from the whole spectrum on how best to prevent situations like this in the future.
Three boys, 19, 16, and 16 are gone. They are gone because they were three Jewish boys living in the only Jewish country in the world.
One was an American citizen.
Obama is urging restraint. How can he urge restraint when an American citizen is murdered on his way home from school?
It's been clear for a long time whose side he is on.

Obama is the same mindless fool that completely overlooked so much blatantly evil in his own "administration" that he didn't even have to think twice about it (assuming he thought once about it; assuming he ever thinks).
Obama would just as soon Israel would simply go away.
He is an anti-semite through and through. A hater of the Jews to rival the likes of Adof Hitler - to an absolutely frightening degree. As I type this there is a government-subcontracted firm ordering reporters not to report on most of the "goins-on" at the US/Mexican border. The men from this firm, the ones doing the "dirty work on the ground" - call themselves "Brown Shirts." You **cannot** make this stuff up!
General Prediction Time:
Between now and January 2017 there will be a terrorist incident in the United States of sufficient severity and impact that Obama will declare Martial Law and suspend the Constitution.
[cf; Reichstag Fire]
Shortly after that, he will call the congress to session having rigged things so that he will get the 2016 elections "suspended."
As I've been saying to folks for quite some time - go read your history.
United States 2014-2016
The **only** thing that will make this fail is that Obama has not succeeded in doing the one thing Hitler *did* -- we still have our guns!
