On CBS’ Face the Nation on Sunday,” White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, photo above, condemned Israel for “killing…innocent children,” as if that were their goal. She has no understanding of war, nor does her boss.
“This is why the cease-fire is so important,” Jarrett said. “It’s a devastating situation. Israel absolutely has the right to defend itself, and we are Israel’s staunchest ally. But you also can’t condone the killing of all of these innocent children.”
An Israeli bomb hit just outside a U.N. school Sunday tragically killing civilians. Israel did not attack civilians. They attacked terrorists. They’re at war.
Where is the White House on the terrorist who toppled a bus in Israel?
Capt. Eytan Buchman, a spokesman for the Israel Defense Forces, said the targets of the attack in the border city of Rafah were three Palestinian militants riding past the school on a motorcycle. “We identified a successful hit on the target,” Buchman said. “We definitely don’t target civilians or schools.”
U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon called Sunday’s attack a “moral outrage and a criminal act.”
State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki, in an unusually harsh statement, said that “the United States is appalled by today’s disgraceful shelling” and urged Israel to do more to “avoid civilian casualties” and to protect U.N. facilities.
“The suspicion that militants are operating nearby does not justify strikes that put at risk the lives of so many innocent civilians,” she added.
It’s hard to tell who is Israel’s worst enemy – the U.N. or the U.S. Israel is not being allowed to fight a war and kill Hamas. Obama will only allow them to clear tunnels which means they will face the threat from Hamas every day in perpetuity. Hamas lodged more than 3000 missiles into Israel in this latest battle with Hamas and it has been ongoing since the pseudo peace deal worked out by Hillary Clinton and Mohammed Morsi, Egypt’s former dictator now imprisoned.
Three U.N. schools were recently found to be housing missiles.
