We hope you’re having a great day wherever you are and that the news we dig up for you this morning helps you navigate the day more efficiently!
It’s a busy world out there, and you don’t have a ton of free time to be doing Internet searches for the most important items of the day… lucky for you, we do. We drink gallons of coffee in an effort to stay awake long enough to scour the far reaches of the world wide web in an effort to bring you the most important, useful and useless information every single day.
So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Thursday July 31, 2014.
The people of Israel are united behind Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the military’s efforts in Gaza and the West Bank.
A poll this week for Israel’s Channel 10 news, conducted by the Sarid Institute, found that 87 percent of Jewish Israelis support continuing the Gaza operation. A survey by the Israel Democracy Institute found that 95 percent of Israeli Jews think the operation in Gaza is just, and 4 of 5 oppose a unilateral withdrawal. Just 4 percent said the Israeli military has used excessive force. And in another survey this week, by the University of Haifa, 85 percent of Jewish Israelis said they are “very satisfied” or “satisfied” with Netanyahu’s leadership.
The Democrat candidate for the Senate from Kentucky is an idiot. I’m not trying to be mean, but Alison Lundergan Grimes is not an intelligent lady. She’s a parrot who can quote the Democrat talking points… but the moment she gets asked a question of substance, she proves that she has no “real” idea about what’s going on.
As foreign policy inches its way into a debate that has largely focused on the economy, Grimes was asked about congressional efforts to aid Israel’s missile defense system, known as the Iron Dome.
“Obviously, Israel is one of our strongest allies in the Middle East, and she has the right to defend herself,” Grimes said. “But the loss of life, especially the innocent civilians in Gaza, is a tragedy. The Iron Dome has been a big reason why Israel has been able to withstand the terrorists that have tried to tunnel their way in.
Even a policy novice should know that the Iron Dome stop missiles flying in, not terror tunnels being dug underneath. This is a big deal. The Israel question is one of the biggest foreign policy issues on the plate right now.
As the Jews flee Europe, the media attacks a pro-Israel Republican again…
The majority of Americans don’t want to provide new homes for children fleeing gangs in Latin America.
Liberals love the one percent…
Red States don’t want “real” Democrats… so Democrats are pretending to be Republicans to get elected.
Tea Party candidate Milton Wolf is getting closer in his race to unseat Pat Roberts (R-KS).
