Israel to Kerry: Drop Dead

Israel cabinet rejects Kerry cease-fire proposal in Gaza | JPost | Israel News

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s security cabinet has rejected proposals for a cease-fire in the Gaza Strip and is seeking changes to the plans, a government source said on Friday.

US Secretary of State John Kerry has been pushing for a halt to 18 days of fighting between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

I think the reason that Israel may finally pursue Hamas to a consequential conclusion – its destruction, one hopes – is the growing awareness among the Israeli people that the United States is no longer to be trusted as an ally, and is at best neutral, at worst an undercover enemy.

It is this awareness that Israel can no longer depend on America having its back that may lead to the Israelis taking the matter into their own hands and eradicating Hamas on their own.

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
