Hillary Clinton Middle East: President Obama Sends Secretary Of State To Israel, Egypt Amid Gaza Crisis

The U.S. considers Hamas, which has killed hundreds of Israelis in suicide and other attacks, to be a terror group and does not meet with its officials. The Obama administration blames Hamas for the latest eruption of violence and says Israel has the right to defend itself. At the same time, it has warned against a ground invasion, saying it could send casualties spiraling.

Owner Suleiman Tawil, 31, grimly surveyed the damage to his store and six company cars. "I'm not involved in politics," he said. "I'm a businessman. But the more the Israelis pressure us, the more we will support Hamas."

Fuad Hijazi and two of his toddler sons were killed Monday evening when missiles struck their one-story shack in northern Gaza, leaving a crater about two to three meters (seven to 10 feet) deep in the densely populated neighborhood. Residents said the father was not a militant.

On Tuesday morning, the boys' bodies lay next to each other on a rack in the local morgue, wrapped tightly in white burial shrouds. Their father lay in a rack below.

"We want to tell the world which is supporting the state of Israel, what this state is doing," said neighbor Rushdie Nasser. "They are supporting a state that kills children ... We want to send a message to the U.N. and the West: Enough of supporting the Zionists, who are killing children."

Secretary Of State Speculation Turns Up Heat On Rice
Sen. John McCain of Arizona called Rice unqualified to be secretary of state and even suggested that the Stanford graduate is not bright. The newly elected chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, Rep. Marcia Fudge of Ohio, says that smacks of racism and sexism.
"How do you say that a person with Susan Rice's background is not qualified? I wonder what your qualifications are for your job. Where did you finish in your class?" she said. "I know one of them finished in the bottom of their class. Susan Rice was a Rhodes scholar. How do you say a person like Susan Rice is not qualified?"
Fudge then compared Rice to former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who had presented to the American public faulty intelligence on Iraq, warning of possible "mushroom clouds."
"I mean, Susan Rice's comments didn't send us to Iraq and Afghanistan. Somebody else's did," she said. "But you're not angry with them."
Another congresswoman at Friday's news conference, Rep. Karen Bass of California, believes the dispute is all about politics.
"Our Republican colleagues are disoriented, frankly, and are in a tailspin since the election," Bass said. "They want to shoot. They don't know who to shoot. They don't know where the target should be, so right now the target is on the back of Susan Rice."

<quoted text>The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds)

The people demanded it. That was in 1971 - before computers, e-mail,
cell phones, etc.
Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took one (1) year
or less to become the law of the land - all because of public pressure.
If We the People want something done, we must COLLECTIVELY be willing to put said pressure on Congress. We have even more tools available to us now, and all we have to do is USE THEM.
Last night, I emailed the contents of my previous post to my entire contacts lists, on both my email accounts. Once I get finished with this post, I'll be mailing that post (both electronically and by 'snail mail') to every Congress person in my state and my representatives in the US Congress.
Join me?
Ok, sister, I'm in.

What are your feelings about Congress members invested in defense contracts?

Throughout the conflict, Egyptian officials have been signaling that they are close to negotiating a truce between Israel and Hamas. On Monday, an Egyptian official told Haaretz that "tomorrow will be a critical day."

Now, according to Reuters, Egypt's president is once again saying that he expects a resolution to the conflict today.

Wouldn't expect you to know that. Only time the right wing media pay attention to the Black Caucus is when they're defending the 'right' of the tea party to attack the Black Caucus.

The operation should end when all the zooks are dead and no more rockets are falling on Israel.
