Slandered, despised, insulted, degraded, Israel is nonetheless winning its war against Hamas. The number of rocket attacks launched by the terror group each day has been halved. The IDF is uprooting the underground tunnels Hamas uses to smuggle weapons, contraband, and terrorists in and out of the Gaza Strip. On Wednesday evening, Israel’s Channel Two newscast carried footage of Hamas terrorists surrendering to the IDF. The jihadists carried white flags. They stripped to their shorts, proving they were not wearing suicide belts. These are facts Hamas does not want you to know, images Hamas does not want you to see.
The Israel Defense Forces is calling out a United Nations aid agency for falsely claiming that the IDF did not permit civilians to evacuate a Gaza school where 15 people were killed today.
President Obama has long touted his commitment to the “unbreakable bond” between the United States and Israel—in this propaganda video from 2012, for example.
At the moment, however, his administration has severed the actual, physical bond connecting the two countries. The Federal Aviation Administration recently extended its ban on U.S. commercial flights to Israel, over the objections of Israeli officials.
The Pentagon announced to congressional leaders that it supports Israel’s request for $225 million in additional funding for the Iron Dome missile defense program.
