Obama's Arab Spring, not so favorable after all
The terrorist group Hamas has been launching rockets into civilian population centers for decades. Israeli's are used to that. Immediately after Israel gave up the Gaza strip to placate the put-upon Palestinians, the world's favorite, but concocted, hammer with which to pummel Israel, Hamas took over and established that land as a close-in launching pad for further civilian attacks on Israel.
Finally Israel has had enough and is fighting back with surgical air strikes. It was being reported yesterday that Palestinian civilians were faking injuries for news cameras in Gaza to make the Israeli's look like indiscriminate aggressors. Israel did manage to kill the top Hamas commander in Gaza and may have killed a civilian or two, but that's because as this picture shows, the Hamas cowards place their launch pads in close proximity to schools, mosques, and other civilian centers, hoping to use them as shields.
Predictably Egypt is now solidly on the side of Hamas now that the Muslim Brotherhood is in charge there. Israel might just have an all-out war on its hands. How's that Arab Spring working out for you, Obama?
