  Below is a link to J.E. Dyer's article about the FAA ban. She is right, This is an act of aggression by the Obama administration against he Jewish state. The fact that there is no FAA flight ban on Pakistan, where civilian jetliners have been downed by the Taliban again just makes clear the double standard at work here.     This was a presidential decision.

    Operation Protective Edge is now two weeks old. Since the ground offensive began Thursday night, we have begun to get a better picture of just how dangerous Hamas has become in the nine years since Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip.

Wounded soldiers in the hospital have given a clearer picture of what Hamas's battlefield looks like. When our forces came to Sejeiyah, Hamas sent children into the street wearing suicide vest and with rifles and orders to shoot at our soldiers.

  Israel deployed ground forces in Gaza Thursday night both because Hamas’s terror tunnels into Israel have become an unacceptable threat, and because it had to break the deadlock that had developed between it and Hamas.   Until the ground invasion, Israel and Hamas were in a holding pattern. Hamas would not accept a ceasefire deal because Egypt’s offers provided the Iranian sponsored, Muslim Brotherhood terror army with no discernible achievements. And absent such achieve…

In today's New York Post, Seth Lipsky said that the time has come for Israel to annex Judea and Samaria, and he endorsed an Israeli policy based on my book The Israeli Solution.     The collapse of a ceasefire plan for Israel and Hamas would be a moment to test the Jewish state’s super-weapon — Caroline Glick. Or, more precisely, her idea of a one-state plan for peace in the Middle East.     Glick laid out the plan in a book called “The Israeli Solution.…
