Stupid? Nah. I'd say Obama and Kerry know exactly what will be done with those taxpayer dollars. More dead Israelis is part of the Obama foreign policy reset.

You're not really paying attention, are you, Anon? Israel could defeat Hamas, if only Kerry would take his boot off of Israel's neck. And if the Jihadists in Gaza decide to leave for Syria to join ISIS, that will be fine with Israel, who should re-liberate Gaza, disarm Hamas, and apply Israeli civil law to Gaza. It could then rebuild the Jewish towns destroyed by Sharon, and, guess what, the conflict would end. Those "everyday citizens" are either human shields or combatants out of uniform, and thsoe buildings and infrastructure were all used to attack Israel. It's called self-defense, a right which anti-Semites routinely deny to Jews. Some 80% of Gaza residents support "armed resistence" to Israel, Anon. Just where are the moderates? Perhaps Israeli sovereignty would allow them to come out of hiding. The rest can take a check from Israel and go live in any of the 57 Muslim state paradices.
Iron dome is fairly effective for small numbers of incoming enemy missiles. However, it is estimated that Hezbollah has over 100,000 (!) missiles ready to lauch from southern Lebanon with ranges that can reach the entire area of Israel above the Negev, some with advanced guidance systems. Hamas would launch five, maybe ten missiles at once. Most would be headed towards open areas, and if Iron Dome determined any of them were headed towards populated areas, it would launch intercepts. The Hezbollah missiles, if they have guidance systems, could easily overwhelm the Iron Dome system with a larger volley, 50 to 100 missiles, for example, all headed for civilian population targets. In that example, Iron Dome might be able to take out half of them, allowing the rest to reach their targets. Add chemical warheads to the mix (Hezbollah is thought to have them), and you can see the challenges Hezbollah poses to Israel's defense systems.

Mark - I think Ben, an observant Jew, believes he has all the tools he needs to resist the "draw of the flesh and of the world system." Christianity offers fine moral standards to mankind, but there are other religious systems that also offer fine moral standards as well. Please try to tolerate them and those that adhere to them, like Ben.

+1,Piedra.
Actually, firearms are the one thing available to women that eliminates the physical advantages men have over women.
This one is easy! Halleck should post a yard sign on his fromt lawn with a picture of Edson's house, address, that says: "The homeowner at [her address] is completely unarmed and may have numerous valuables stored in her home." I would think Edson's sign would come down fairly quickly.
That is a pretty big generalization from one or two examples, TheHeretic. Libertarians may hate religious authority, but denying the right to associate with the religion of your choice (provided it does not seek to deny others' rights, like Islam), is hardly real libertarianism.
The reality is that such a move is less about the rights of the "Palestinian" people and more about the removal of human rights from the indigenous people of the Land of Israel, the Jews (as in Judea). The two-solution is a canard. Listen to the words of Abbas, Arafat before him, and any P.A. officials speaking to Muslim audiences: The entire "peace process" is nothing more than the "phased plan" for the destruction of the Jewish State devised by Arafat in 1974. Every voice of support for a "State of Palestine" is a voice for Jewish Holocaust 2.0.
All these posts exhibit a complete lack of knowledge of Jewish law and how it was applied through the San Hedrin during the first two Jewish Commonwealths. The OT laws cited by jblack35 are still very much in effect for Torah-observant Jews, but there are a few things to keep in mind: 1. Only with a recognized Jewish Court in Israel (a San Hedrin) can such laws be enforced by law. No such court has existed since the fall of the Second Jewish Commonwealth. 2. The bar for proof of guilt in such cases is set very high, as they are in all capital crimes restricted by the OT. A familiarity with the Oral Law (Talmud) is required to understand the burdens of proof on such cases. 3. As a result of the requirements for a guilty verdict on such sins, the actual punishment of a death sentence was an extreme rarity when the San Hedrin existed. 4. Unlike Islam, Jewish law was never intended to apply to non-Jews outside of the Land of Israel, and only in very limited ways were they applied to non-Jews inside of the Land of Israel. Conversely, Islamic law demands universal application to all.
Yes.
