Hat tip Joshua Pundit – The current war in Israel is not between the Israelis and Palestinians, it is radical Islamist terrorist group Hamas against the very existence of the Jewish people and the State of Israel. Annihilating the Jewish state and the Jewish people is in the charter of Hamas.

This past Thursday Israel launched a ground offensive after days of enduring thousands of missiles being shot from Gaza into Israel by the terrorist group Hamas. Spurring the action was the discovery of thirteen Hamas militants exiting a tunnel leading from Gaza into Israel. Heavily armed, the militants planned on attacking and kidnapping or killing Jewish residents of a nearby kibbutz. The Israeli offensive, known as Operation Protective Edge, began after a series of events escalated the ongoing violence between Hamas and Israel.
On June 12th, three Israeli seminary students were kidnapped: 16 year old Yaakov Naftali Fraenkel, who held dual US-Israeli citizenship; 16 year old Gilad Shaer; and 19 year old Eyal Yifrah. Their bodies were discovered on June 30th reportedly having been shot soon after they were kidnapped.
Two days after their bodies were discovered 16 year old Mohammed Abu Khdeir was kidnapped and murdered by Israeli nationals in an apparent revenge attack. Protests during his funeral resulted in the arrest of a cousin of the murdered boy, 15 year old Tariq Abu Khdeir, whose beating by Israeli police was caught on videotape and caught international attention. The police claimed Khdeir was armed with a slingshot and was with protestors who were shooting stones at them. After receiving medical treatment and serving nine days of house arrest, late Wednesday evening Khdeir returned to Tampa where he lives with his family.
While many Americans seem unaware or apathetic to the escalation of violence and the ground war going on in Israel, protests have occurred in several cities, particularly where the Muslim community has established a physical and vocal presence. After Tariq’s return to Tampa, local CAIR Florida Executive Director Hassan Shibley took the opportunity Thursday morning to speak on local radio and television shows to condemn the treatment of Tariq by the Israeli police and against the ongoing persecution of Palestinians living in Israel.
On Friday in Temple Terrace, a once exclusive suburb of Tampa, a group of nearly 200 protestors gathered at the corner of Fowler Avenue and 52nd Street near the University of South Florida. The protestors were supporting the Hamas militants and denouncing the retaliatory actions of Israel. Palestinians and many in the Muslim faith refuse to acknowledge the legitimacy of the state of Israel. They call for the extermination of the Jewish people from every corner of the globe. Why is this not decried and condemned by our government as the hateful and dangerous anti-Semitism that it is? Is this any different than the Nazi propaganda of 1930s and 1940s Germany? Are we going to remain silent as these protests escalate?
Below is a short video from Dennis Prager explaining the Middle East conflict, which is really very simple: “One side wants the other dead.” The Palestinians and many other Muslims and Arabs refuse to recognize Israel as a state and refuse to live in peace with Israel. While Israel has agreed to give up valuable land for peace and welcomes a two state solution to the problem, it is impossible to negotiate with people who refuse to acknowledge its very right to exist.
In researching this article, it seems young Tariq Khdeir attends the Universal Academy of Florida, a pre-K through 12th grade Islamic school in Tampa. According to its website the school has been in existence since 1992 and states: “Our MISSION at UAF is to teach our students the principles and practices of Islam and to prepare them for academic success and good citizenship.” The UAF philosophy states: “The child is taught Islam across the curriculum to produce intellectual thinkers with ALLAH’s Laws as a basis.” We have a very real and insidious indoctrination of young Muslims occurring in the United States, and it is gaining ground. A recent email from United Voices for America reports a chilling statistic – Islam is the second largest religion in 20 states in America. This organization and CAIR, the Council on American and Islamic Relations (an unindicted co-conspirator of the terrorist group Hamas) encourage young Muslims to get involved in American politics and train them to advocate for the Muslim community and run for elected office to advance their agenda.
In these private Islamic schools across the country, Muslim youth are being taught from pre-school through high school graduation the tenets of Islam and Islamic law, or shari’ah. If these schools are teaching Muslim children the tenets of the Quran and Allah’s Laws they are teaching hatred and intolerance of all non-Muslims. These beliefs can never coexist alongside the rule of law in America. We need to jealously guard our freedoms or we will surely lose them.

From Terresa Monroe-Hamilton at Noisyroom.net
“Are you curious who has been facilitating the transport of illegal alien children throughout the country? Look no more… meet La Raza connected Southwest Key Programs. This organization is the pipeline for the children into US refugee camps and homes across the nation. They provide immigrant youth shelters. It is a well-oiled machine that was set up to educate and reintegrate youth into American society. They also provide training for jobs. And baby, they are hiring.”

In another case where the Obama Administration claims to have been caught off guard, the onslaught of illegal immigrant children coming across our southern border appears to have been expected as early as the beginning of this year. An advertisement posted on the site Federal Business Opportunities back on January 29, 2014 by the Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement requested bids from contractors to provide Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC). The request cited an anticipated 65,000 children ranging in age from infants to seventeen years old who will require assistance in being transferred from:
“DHS to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) care via ground or air methods of transportation (charter or commercial carrier), property inventory, providing juveniles with meals, drafting reports, generating transport documents, maintaining/stocking daily supplies, providing and issuing clothing as needed, coordinating with DHS and HHS staff, travel coordination, limited stationary guard services to accommodate for trip disruptions due to inclement weather, faulty equipment, or other exigent circumstances. In emergency situations, the Contractor shall be called on to provide temporary shelter locations (such as trailers) with shower facilities for juveniles who are pending placement with HHS when bed space is unavailable nationwide for extended periods of time. The Contractor shall provide temporary guard services and other support as necessary during these emergencies.”
The Obama administration is taking action to deal with this “surprising” influx of minor alien children, the majority coming from the Central American countries of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. House Speaker John Boehner called for the deployment of the National Guard to protect our borders but the administration has denied his request. What the Administration has committed to do is provide the Central American countries with $9.6 million dollars to help them with their citizens who are sent back to their home countries. In addition, according to a report from CBS News, the State Department, through USAID, has committed to a five-year $40 million dollar program for Guatemala, a five-year, $25 million crime and violence prevention program in El Salvador, and in Honduras the U.S. will provide $18.5 million to support law enforcement in that country. Our current and future tax dollars have been promised to these countries in exchange for us taking in their abandoned, sick, and often times abused children.
Unaccompanied alien children are crossing our borders by the thousands every day. An article on Breitbart reports 300 children are being flown from Texas to San Diego, California. Protests from citizens in Lawrenceville, Virginia against housing 500 of these children on the campus of St Paul’s College, a college that closed last year, has forced the Administration to shelve their plans according to a report on Fox News. It appears the plans are to ship these children by the hundreds to cities all across the country. Already badly in need of revenue for vital services due to the continuing stagnant economy, this influx could collapse the already stretched schools, medical facilities, state, city and county public services, and law enforcement personnel.
Those of us who have researched President Obama’s background are aware of his intentions to create chaos in our country. An article by James Simpson in American Thinker titled Cloward-Piven Government from November of 2009 describes President Obama’s intent to use this strategy to destroy our economy and fundamentally transform America. Simpson quotes David Horowitz, who described this method as:
The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.
Former Obama Administration Chief of Staff and current Mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel was quoted as saying “never let a crisis go to waste.” It appears President Obama and his willing cohorts have upped the game now to actually creating crises.
They are forcing Americans, and Congress, to plead for comprehensive immigration reform. They will say this is a humanitarian crisis and we have to do this for the children. These children are being sent by parents or grandparents to America, not because of the promise of freedom which brought immigrants here in the past, but because they are escaping the hell hole of a country they live in where Marxism and socialist policies have failed miserably and the people are suffering from unrelenting poverty, escalating crime, and no hope for their future.
The video below is from the Fox News Kelly File, where Megyn Kelly speaks with film maker Dennis Michael Lynch, who filmed the activity on the border between the United States and Mexico. Lynch believes the tens of thousands of children coming across our border are a diversion for what is really happening. The drug cartel scouts are over on the Mexican side and are getting criminals and drugs into this country with relative ease. Criminals are hooking up with pregnant women pretending to be family just to get into the United States. When they do get turned back by Border Patrol they come back hours later. Lynch believes “our country and the future of our children have officially fallen off the cliff” based on what he has seen.
We must not allow our representatives to cave to the pressure of those pleading to help the children when we are struggling to help ourselves. We cannot even provide health care to our wounded veterans who earned it through their sacrifice in service to this country. We cannot save the children of the world, no matter how much we might want to.
We do need to deal with immigration in America. Our elected officials must insist our borders are secured and all of these children returned to their homelands. In the long run it will cost far less to return them than to provide the housing, food, education, and health care to support them until they reach the age of majority. But more importantly, we need to prevent the drug cartels from sending criminals and illegal drugs into our country, and assure that no terrorists can cross our borders to commit violent acts and bring terror to our cities and citizens.
President Obama’s policies have made him the #King Coyote; “coyote” being the name used for those who sneak illegal immigrants into our country for personal gain. President Obama is doing this for an ideological gain. He sees America and the world as a Marxist utopia where there are no borders or countries, only people coexisting with one another in perfect harmony. This is a very dangerous, bone chilling policy, which threatens our very existence as a sovereign nation.
