I simply take Islamic extremists at their word.They want Israel exterminated.
It's hard to believe libs won't do the say.The same is said by many arab governments as well.
Israel owns our media & politicians , just search the internet for the S.S. Liberty .
how many duel citizens are in Washington .
Israel has hundreds of nukes & never signed a proliferation treaty.
Krauthammer is another puppet for the Zionist & globalist shill.
I turned Shields off a long, long time ago. The man speaks foolishly and is an embarassment. But he's a typical liberal with a foundation based in quicksand and not concrete.
But, but Pres Obama, our lord and savior (as Jamie Fox claims), the Nobel Prize winner for Peace, will solve the worlds problems. Relax. All is well.
WE SHOULD BE SHIELDED , AGAINST MARK, AN OBITLA BROWN SHIRT, AND A FULL FLEDGED MEMBER OF STYMIES PRAVADA PRESS
A conceited self centered arrogant fool would only believe that there will be peace between Israel and Hamas ,This conflict has went on since 1948 and has become a lifestyle for the PLO and Hamas what would change it now ?? Clinton just before he left office gave Arafat the deal of a lifetime and Arafat told Israel to go to hell and left the meeting .
The lib started off on the right foot...so it seemed. He appeared to be going against Hamas by saying they have to stop the rocket attacks, but.....he ended by saying Netenyahu has to make consessions in order to stop the attacks.
Libs don't have a clue what's going on there. I mean, as far as what the real objectives of Hamas are. Libs believe Hamas wants peace and Israel won't let them have it. What a crock of **** !
Yikes!! They all look like a deer in headlights. A RESOLUTION?!!
Yeah, he's dreaming. You can't negotiate with the devil.
Here's a little logic (yeah I know I'm wasting my time with the libs) from an atheist:
There's never been peace in the history of the world existing, but this guy thinks all of the sudden, there is going to be peace in the world? I have an idea, just tell him to put up one of those stupid peace signs, that the hippies used to use, that I see all over the place now, and that will bring peace in the world.
These people live in a fantasy world. They believe they can control the planet, they believe they can bring peace to a world that has never had peace, and they believe they can take care of all of the poor, and that they can make everyone have a house, and a car, and, blah, blah, blah. Their mentally disabled. They don't have the ability to reason.
How anyone, of any political party, or not, can believe, with a straight face, that Hamas would want to negotiate a peace with Israel, is beyond me.
However, that being said, the Holy Bible, in the Book of Revelation, reveales there will be peace declared between Israel and its enemy. Israel people will want it so bad, because the Book goes on to say that people will say "Peace Peace..." and it will last three and one half years. Then comes the Tribulation. It will also last three and one half years, and there will be so much devastation that Jesus Christ will appear to stop it, or we will annihilate ourselves. What this means is there will be a three and a half year 'peace' to give time for Hamas and all its allies to organize a final blow to Israel.
Imagine how Mark Shields would say, "see, I was right---we can negotiate a peace with Hamas". That's the kind of false credibility a person in the secular media can provide to comfort their followers, when the Bible isn't referred to. What a huge mistake that is.
We elect non-believers of God's word, and vote accordingly.
The conspiracy is world wide---to attack Christianity in every quarter of our democratic societies. The Bible is right---the Devil knows his time is short, so he is shaking himself in all manner to take us down with him. Don't be fooled. Get the Bible and read Daniel, Ezekiel 38 and 39 and the Book of Revelation. You'll join the dots of what is going on in the world, and what the Bible predicted, such a long time ago. Before all that happens, there could be a short war, when Russia is pushed back by Israel, as Russia backed Iran and Hamas, and then converts to Catholicm, but in the Armaggedon, it will be the Final Conflict of mankind.
...the only resolution to this conflict between Hamas and Israel is the total elimination of HAMAS and its supporters by the military might of Israel and its allies . U.S.A. are you going to be there when the last card is played ?"
When will these morons wake up and accept the reality of the situation and who these Muslims really are - and what they stand for? The Bible clearly points out where things are going and Muslims will be the instrument of the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Even an Atheist could see that... children I know, know that.
If you listened to MSNBC on Sunday morning, you'd be screaming and pulling your hair out over their ignorance and stance against Israel (I know, listening to MSNBC? Madness). Muslims DO NOT desire peace with Israel or the "infidel". It's really that simple.
"Peace cannot be achieved when one party has no desire for peach, only for destruction and dominance"
READ THE KORAN It is the "duty" of EVERY MUSLIM to convert non-believers or KILL THEM. This is a fact...enough with the "extremists"...they ALL ARE EXTREMISTS or they need to invent a new religion
It's just a philosophy. You can refute bad philosophies. You can persuade people against following bad philosophies. Calling it a mental disorder suggests that there is nothing that can be done about it.
It is imperative that those on the Right take the time to study and understand what the Left's philosophy is, because if we are ever to stop them then we need to know what motivates them on a fundamental philosophical level.
Just a philosophy?
Liberalism is really a mental disorder - http://newsbusters.org/blogs/rusty-weiss/2012/01/22/yes-liberalism-mental-disorder
"In 2005, Michael Savage famously wrote a book titled, Liberalism is a Mental Disorder, the subject of which is self-explanatory. And more recently, Dr. Lyle Rossiter, a board-certified clinical psychologist, wrote a book in which he diagnosed the ideology of the left as a tangible mental illness. Perhaps though, liberalism is not so much a novel mental disorder, but a more cleverly disguised form of illness already widely studied since the late ‘60s – narcissistic personality disorder (NPD)."
Hmmmm...you have to wonder if Obamacare covers it. Just sayin'.
It's a mental disorder, plain and simple.
Another big part of that disorder is "head-up-your-butt-itis" - no matter what you say or do, liberals will never see beyond the rose coloured glasses they wear to filter out reality.
All of the stuff on that link can be explained by their philosophy. To call it a "mental disorder" is to turn the Left into victims (more than they themselves claim to be), and it suggests that they cannot change; that nothing can be done for them.
Furthermore, I think it actually helps the Left to call Liberalism a "mental disorder", because it prevents people on the Right from critically analysing their philosophy and intellectually arming themselves against its arguments.
"It's just a philosophy. You can refute bad philosophies. You can persuade people against following bad philosophies."
Sometimes, you have to attract their attention first. Like we had to do with the Japanese in August 1945. ;-)
Islam is the religion of subjugation. The followers of (especially Shia) Islam live, die and kill for Allah, just as surely as the Japanese did for the Emperor under the Bushido code of the Samurai.
He's right that the fighting should stop and that there should be peace, but there WOULD be peace right now if Hamas hadn't fired a bunch of rockets on Israeli civilians a few weeks ago. We know what happens when they have peace: Hamas ends the peace by firing rockets.
Here's a little taste of the sort of peace Islam creates:
2012.11.24 (Sanaa, Yemen) - A rocket fired at Shiites celebrating a religious holiday sends at least four straight to Allah.
2012.11.24 (Dera Ismail Khan, Pakistan) - Four children are among seven members of a Shia religious procession disassembled by Religion of Peace rival bombers.
2012.11.23 (Maidan Shar, Afghanistan) - A Fedayeen suicide bomber kills three others, including a woman.
2012.11.22 (Bichi, Nigeria) - Angry Muslims riot, burn churches and kills four Christians over a rumor of blasphemy concerning a t-shirt.
2012.11.22 (Maiduguri, Nigeria) - Three young children are among eighteen people murdered by Boko Haram in a series of terror attacks.
2012.11.22 (Pattani, Thailand) - A female Buddhist school principal dies from injuries after being hit by automatic weapons fire in a target attack.
Look at Egypt, Libya, etc.
From one end of Islam to the other, there is no peace, no love, no joy.
A survey was taken in the Middle East and 70% of the young people wanted to leave or for their country's government to be like the US or Israel. They were tired of the instability and violence of the Islamists.
How many times do the followers of Islam have to say that the complete and utter destruction of Israel is the only acceptable solution, before these idiots get it?
Take a little browse through the history books and tell me how many countries that have chosen to 'negotiate' with Islam, are not now Islamic countries.
Liberal columnist masquerading as a journalist is just experiencing a fantastic fantasy of liberal extremist absolute nonsense.
Palestinians are a made up people. There is no such thing as a Palestinian, as they are just Arabs, Bedouins, where they lived in the lands of Judea and Samaria which has been Israeli land for thousands of years.. Now with all of the land that surrounds Israel, all arab islamic muslim territory, countries, etc, the so called Palestinian arabs cannot live there, is utter rubbish.
The arab nations around Israel do not want to take in there own people(so called palestinian arabs), that’s the problem. Not Israel and the Jewish people, whose homeland is Judea and Samaria, and rightly so.
I support Israel and the Jewish People's right to exist, right to live on their homeland and in peace 1000%, as all patriotic Conservative American people do.
This will only end after one side wins a total military victory over the other. And that final confrontation will come as soon Iran gets its nuclear bomb. Unfortunately, if Iran and Israel go after each other with nuclear weapons, nobody is going to win. And it doesn't look like Obama is going to want to get involved at that point, so both countries are going to be destroyed.
Is Mark Shields still around????? Guess so, but I haven't seen him in awhile, nor have I missed him. The libs are fools and why they can't see as Charles states Hamas is out to destroy Israel I don't know. Must be a brain malfunction. I think there is no other explanation for liberals but delusion. They do not live in the real world but in a mental fantasy land.
They're the textbook version of that annoying person who keeps wanting to help you, but makes everything worse. They just can't take a hint and believe that if they just help everyone, that world peace will happen. I speak from experience.
You mean......they have brains? Who knew. All this time I thought it was memory banks, chips and programming. In fact they act like androids from "What little girls are made of" episode from Star Trek where somebody barks(pardon the expression) "protect" and they circle the wagons when signs of trouble begin.
God gave them a brain but I think their liberal mindset has eroded something which we would call common sense. I believe this can be attributed to not thinking for themselves and following the group. If you notice once a talking point is given everyone adheres to it as if in lock step. It's also why they are irrational in so many things and why we who use our brains see them as in la la land. I am convinced if you don't use it you lose it and they have lost it.
Israel right now, is like your own best friend, who you let down one time, when he really needed your support. He forgives you for that, but he knows in his heart, he can't really trust you, in future conflicts. Life is like that. You can put a pretty face on it, like politicians do, but it is what it is.
All I want to know is, if I get in a real fight, can I depend on you to back me up? Asking that question of Obama, is like p**sing in the wind.
That is where Israel is right now. A real Leader, Benjamin Netanyahu, is trying his best to save his country.
He has minimal support from this Communist Muslim, who was elected, not once, but twice.
Unlike Obama, the man is a real leader. He is fighting for the survival of his country. Has it occurred to any of you, that we are fighting for the same thing?
Israel has a good chance of losing their country. If we don't support them in this fight, then we are not far behind. The Communist Muslim doesn't like this country, either.
Anything to do with Israel, forces all of us to realize what a powder keg the Middle East has become. You can ignore the real problem all you want, but it won't change the outcome.
Israel is an island of Freedom, surrounded by hatred for their very existence. The final solution their neighbors all seek, has been held off, all these many years, by two things. A strong Israeli Military, superior to their enemies, with superior technology, augmented by a big brother, looking over their shoulder. We're the big brother, The United States of America.
Their technology and equipment are equal to ours. We have seen to that. Actually, maybe better. Because they modify what we give them to fight their war on their own terms, and on their own conditions.
An example. They put rear view mirrors on their fighters. Cost about six bucks per aircraft.
A simple illustration, of creativity, when you are faced with extinction.
Some of you are laughing. But it worked. It has been said, that American fighter pilots, the best in the world, hope they never have to go up against Israeli fighters. Because they are that good.
Then, there's Iron Dome. If you don't know what that is, google it.
The hope of all Liberals, and not a few Conservatives, is that there will eventually be peace, in the Middle East. That Hamas will sit down with Jews and work it out. If you believe that, even for a moment, then you are smoking something illegal. Or you're just mind numbingly stupid, like the subject of our evening's commentary, Mark Shields.
As a reference, I would give you Infidel. I'm sure he can fill you in, on the details.
I don't blame Mark Shields. Stupid is stupid. The man has a paycheck and a mortgage. He figured this out a long time ago. He's not really an American, but he has a birth certificate that says he is. Not unlike our imposter of a President.
Mark Shields is only important, because of PBS. Public Broadcasting System. Liberal Nervana. The alternate explanation of the letters, PBS, is pure bulls**t, my polite modification, in keeping with the principles of TRS, regarding profanity, on the site.
Going back to the outcome of all this, Obama holds all the cards. He won the election, and he still has the keys to Air Force One. But he has a very tenuous support, with most of America. He didn't exactly win by a landslide. He won by voter fraud, and most of America knows it, even though they feel helpless to do anything about it.
What he does from this day forward, will be watched closely, by most of America. I guarantee I will be counted in that group. I will be watching closely, for any reason to get rid of him. The man, and what he represents, sickens me.
Exactly. Islam doesn't allow for peace. They have a fake peace. Where they regain their strength until they can defeat you. The constant cease fires and Hamas eventually breaking that truce is all anyone needs to know that this is true. But liberals don't want to admit what Hamas itself says. Krauthammer pointed this out.
This is such a slippery slope. There are far bigger players in this war with Israel - Russia, China, Iran. All three are devious and vicious. America has allowed all three to regain power and control, instead of keeping a thumb on them over the past couple of decades. Putin is old KGB - evil incarnate, that guy. China is communist and has us right where they want us economically. Iran is just a country of insane people, in my opinion. It is a country willing to destroy everything in its path to get those Jews off the planet. Religious nuts and nuclear weapons do not mix, and Iran is well on its way to both. Russia is funneling weapons. China is buying up oil rights. Iran is helping Hamas and all the other little monsters lurking around Israel. Iraq - the place where we fought and died - is turning back to its old ways. It never takes long. I'm still wondering where the WMDs are that left Iraq - I still believe they were smuggled into Syria. Where are they, and who has control of them? You see, this is so much bigger than Hamas and Israel. And, because of our own foolishness, America has given over its greatness to a bunch of fools in Washington, led by a Marxist with a flashy smile and a black heart. Gee, again I am the voice of happiness on here!!!
Don't despair, Constance. Both you and your thoughts are pretty safe here. While we may not all express it, just the way you did, we nonetheless agree with your sentiments. The only disagreement we may have, is what to do about it. That's why we gather here.
If it worries you, like it worries the rest of us, then just make sure you show up here each evening, like we do. None of us have a solution, at this point. I guess that's what we're looking for.
The solutions to what ails America are easy to understand, how to implement the solutions are the problems. For instance, stopping the constant lies being spewed through all media/information outlets as "news or education". That is understood by many, how to stop the lies is not at all understood by even a few.
True. Communication and education - that will be what eventually wins in the end for the good guys. Trying to funnel through all the nonsense on the television, airwaves and internet and know what is true and what is propaganda is getting easier. I know where to go and get my information, and which sites promote the best thinking and conversing. This is my favorite site. Trolls don't last long and the moderators keep the trash out of the heap. It is my first place to wander through in the morning, and my last place at night. We are the good guys. We may be figuring it all out yet, but we know where our hearts are. In a good place. Plus, we are damn smart on this site!
I will say that the Iranian people are much different than their government, overall.
We certainly have turned the middle east into a hornets nest. The countries that we invaded and occupied are now controlled by Muslim zealots. Egypt and Libya are as well, and we could be thanked for that. Syria will get worse since Al Qaeda is in with the "rebel" forces.
Agreed regarding the Iranian people - bad choice of words on my part. I meant the Iranian regime. When I was younger, I really wanted to visit the middle east. I wanted to see all the historical sites and experience the cultures. Beautiful architecture and artwork. All of the history - Assyrian, Persian and Roman empires. The Pharoahs and the marvel of architecture. I do not believe I will ever have that chance now. Not a chance I'm going anywhere near there, and I can't imagine it will be reversing course in my lifetime. What a waste. The more fanatical those places become, the greater chance that the artifacts and culture will be permanently destroyed.
I really like "Drive Thru History" with David Stotts. He's fun to watch, and really brings things to life. What led up to historic events in historic locations, the events themselves, and the aftermath.
Oh, not cowardly at all. I have done the same thing - watched documentaries, read books, viewed the beautiful places and artwork via the web. Lately, I have noticed more and more of those videos popping up on You Tube where people simply film a drive around different cities in different countries. They video from the dashboard, and it's like riding with them. I have "driven" through places like Cairo, Riyadh, Istanbul, Tehran, and many places in Israel. Heard all the noises and sat in traffic and heard the foreign music playing on car radios! Just looking at the billboards and shops and people on the streets fascinates me. So, I guess travel can still be done; just a little more safely.
Constance, when I was young I fell in love with the thought of the ME after reading a book about an Iranian princess but by the time I was in high school the jihadis were activating (hijacking airliners) and Israel had her 6-Day war. Suddenly it seemed like a dark and barbaric region and I've contented myself with books and movies. Cowardly, I know, but once the magic is gone it's gone.
