Congo: UN says Ugandan rebels massacre 100

KINSHASA, Congo – The United Nations says Ugandan rebels massacred 100 civilians in a northeast Congo village this month, the latest atrocity blamed on the insurgents.
U.N. peacekeeping spokesman Lt. Col. Jean-Paul Dietrich says Lord's Resistance Army rebels slaughtered at least 100 people in the village of Tora near the Sudan border on Jan. 16.
He said Thursday that the rebels went on to attack the villages of Kapili and Atande, killing two in each. Those attacks took place on Jan. 17 and Jan. 19.
Human rights groups say that before the latest bloodshed, the rebels already had killed more than 600 people in apparent retaliation for a military offensive against them being carried out by troops from Congo, Uganda and Sudan.

Shouldn't the US consider breaking ties with countries like Saudi Arabia that support and promote terrorism?

Personally, I don't Starbucks

A Lebanese protester draws on a sign of Starbucks Coffee shop during a demonstration held by leftist group to protest against the Israeli ground attack on the Gaza Strip, in Beirut, Lebanon, on Tuesday Jan. 13, 2009. About a hundred demonstrators converged on west Beirut's branch of the Starbucks coffee shop and closed it down in protest over the Israeli attack on Gaza. Protesters are justifying their actions by claiming that the Starbucks corporation' owner donates money to the Israeli military.(AP Photo/Hussein Malla)
Notice the Lebanese portester draws attention to "Jewish" - not "Israeli". Will they stop giving to Hamas because Hamas murders civilians using suicide bombers?

The new Hillary

For those of you who backed Obama... We are now getting a glimpse of what is to come from the Obama administration vis-a-vis Israel.  Here's what Hillary Clinton said during her Senate
confirmation hearing today.

"The President-Elect and I understand and are deeply sympathetic to Israel's desire to defend itself under the current conditions, and to be free of shelling by Hamas by rockets. However, we have also been reminded of the tragic humanitarian costs of conflict in the Middle East, and pained by the suffering of Palestinian and Israeli civilians."

It seems Hillary is "reinventing" herself and taking a decidedly different tack as it relates to Israel.  Who is the real Hillary?

Rocket replicas are a sign of support for more rocket attacks

When people carry mock rockets are they "demonstrat(ing) against the Israeli offensive in the Gaza Strip..." or are they supporting the firing of rockets aginst Israeli civilians?

U.N. what positive contribution have you made to or for Israel?

The main UN agency operating in the Gaza Strip suspended operations in the embattled Palestinian territory after a UN-flagged convoy was hit by tank shells, killing one person, a spokesman said.(AFP)
Please remind me once again what the U.N. forces have done for Israel...
1. Step out of the way when Egypt asked them so Egypt could attack
2. Provide vehicles to Hezbollah to kidnap Israeli soldiers and the hide that info.
3. Allow Hezbollah to rearm contravening U.N. resolution 1701
4. Hire terrorists to work in the UNRWA schools
5. Allow Hamas to store weapons and material in the schools
Please feel free to add.

The "blockade" is just an excuse

Gaza battle stretches into night despite truce calls
By Nidal al-Mughrabi Nidal Al-mughrabi – 1 hr 20 mins ago
GAZA (Reuters) – Israeli troops backed by air strikes fought to seize ground from Hamas militants deep inside the Gaza Strip on Monday despite international calls for a ceasefire in a conflict that has killed more than 540 Palestinians in 10 days.
Israel made clear its priority was to secure the safety of its citizens, while Hamas called for a lifting of the blockade of the enclave, crammed with 1.5 million people whose lives are growing ever more squalid. Many lack food, water or power.

1. So what was Hamas's reason for bombing Israeli civilians before the "blockade"? The alleged blockade is just the excuse of the day.

2. Q+A: Egypt in tight spot enforcing blockade of Gaza
Sat Dec 27, 2008 7:15pm GMT
By Jonathan Wright CAIRO (Reuters) - Israeli raids on the Gaza Strip, which killed at least 208 people on Saturday, have raised the stakes for Egypt in maintaining a blockade on the territory in spite of strong opposition from the Egyptian...";

Why doesn't Hamas bomb Egyptian civilians if the "blockade" is the reason? Obviously it must something something like the fact that Hamas want to destroy the Jewish people as their charter states.

AP just being AP

I was looking at Yahoo News today for updates about Israel and noticed a pattern in the the majority of stories from AP. People have seen this before but it's ususally been over time. Thinking people scratch their heads and say to themselves, "Wow the AP stories written lately have been decidedly anti-Israel." Today is different because they all appear on one page.
