That said, the media didn't plant the bombs. They're just reportingyeah.... I seem to remember something in the news about North Korea being a real serious threat. What happened
whatever they think will keep people watching.
to that threat or story?
LOL. They got awful quiet. NK negotiating style has always been: "NO! Yeeeees..... NO! Release the tiger! ....... <silence>......
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?
