The Palestinians and even the “moderate” Palestinian Authority rejected an independent state in 2000, 2001 and 2008 and continue to REFUSE TO RECOGNIZE THE LEGITIMACY OF A JEWISH STATE NO MATTER WHERE ITS BORDERS ARE DRAWN.

How can anyone possibly not get this???

It's not about giving Palestinians their own land, independence or anything else! It's about Hamas and Iran hell bent on destroying Israel!

To think otherwise is no better than supporting terrorists and the killing of an entire race like Hitler and his Nazis.

Hamas is just modern-day Nazis.

Why so little coverage of the off-duty border agent who was shot and killed while on a fishing trip with his family a few days ago?

Fox and NBC are the two major networks who come up when the story is googled. Meanwhile, NBC can't bring itself to report he was murdered by two illegal aliens:

'NBC:
Off-Duty Border Agent Shot Dead in Texas

An agent with the U.S. Border Patrol was shot and killed Sunday evening while on an off-duty fishing trip in Texas, authorities said. The armed agent, who has not yet been identified, was shot by robbers near the town Santa Monica, the Associated Press reported.

Willacy County authorities said the the agent was fishing with his wife, kids and father when they were attacked at about 8 p.m. CT (9 ET). The agent was fatally shot in the chest while his father was shot in the hip, said Willacy County Sheriff Larry Spence. After a brief manhunt involving state and local officials, two men found in a shed surrendered and were in custody Monday morning. Authorities said stick-ups targeting fishermen are not uncommon in the area. Santa Monica is about 35 miles north of the Mexico border, near the Gulf of Mexico.

'Suspects in murder of Border Patrol agent arrested and deported numerous times

RAYMONDVILLE, Texas -- Two illegal immigrants from Mexico who were charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of an off-duty U.S. Border Patrol agent in front of his family in Texas have been arrested and deported numerous times, police sources told FoxNews.com .

One suspect has been arrested no fewer than four times for entering the U.S. illegally, according to federal court records. The other has been deported twice after entering the U.S. illegally, sources said.

Gustavo Tijerina, 30, and Ismael Hernandez, 40, were arraigned Tuesday afternoon inside the Willacy County jail library. They were ordered held without bail after being charged with capital murder of a peace officer, attempted murder, and a variety of lesser charges.

The pair, who have been living in Texas illegally, confessed after being interviewed multiple times Monday to killing Border Patrol agent Javier Vega Jr. in front of his wife and two kids and his parents Sunday night while they were fishing in Santa Monica, Sheriff Larry Spence told FoxNews.com . The National Border Patrol Council, the union that represented Vega, has set up a memorial fund on behalf of his widow and three young children.

So, you got negative icons for posting the truth. The lame libs who disagree would be the first to be outraged if missles were lobbed at their local Starbucks while they were sipping their lattes and enjoying free wi-fi.

Obama approval at new LOW of 40%.

When the media reported Bush's low numbers the blame was all his.

Now NBC blames ¨Washington¨ and ¨republicans¨ for Obama's poor performance.

Real Dave doesn't understand that encouraging abstinence isn't a new concept. It doesn't mean young people still won't give in to their hormones.
But in the 1960s, the mainstream media thought it big news that virginity among teenage girls' was on the decline. It was supposed to be shocking that only something like 50% of young girls were still a virgin. That article would be laughable today.
The consequences were always a factor in refraining or giving in. No one thought it would happen to them but, when it did, it had to be dealt with and abortion was the last option on the table.
Mature women who are sexually active have no excuse for getting pregnant. Birth control has been readily available and inexpensive for decades. Yet, many still get abortions after the fact.
This can only be changed by societal pressure to make women think ahead and make abortion taboo again. And educating young people about the reality of abortion. It should never be accepted as the law of the land in any society.
More mindless gibberish__you're on a roll today doll.

But in the 1960's the mainstream media??? ROFLMAO

No Free Speech for College Students

U.S. Civil Rights Commissioner Says College Students Not Developed Enough for Free Speech

Michael Yaki, who previously was senior adviser to Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), explained why he believes campus speech codes should be tightened during a U.S. Commission on Civil Rights briefing on sexual-harassment law in education.

“Certain factors in how the juvenile or adolescent or young adult brain processes information is vastly different from the way that we adults do,” he said, according to a transcript from law professor Eugene Volokh, who publishes the blog the Volokh Conspiracy at the Washington Post.“So when we sit back and talk about what is right or wrong in terms of First Amendment jurisprudence from a reasonable person’s standpoint, we are really not looking into the same referential viewpoint of these people, of an adolescent or young adult, including those in universities.”

'Murder in Rio Grande Valley:“This is coming to a town near you”
by Michelle Malkin

The voice on the other end of the line is exasperated.“It’s insane,” he wants America to know.“We’re in a war zone.” And there’s no room for apathy.

“This is coming to a town near you,” he warns.

The man on the phone is a veteran of the Department of Homeland Security who works in South Texas. He reached out to me last night in the wake of an off-duty U.S. Border Patrol agent’s horrific murder on Friday. The 36-year-old agent, Javier Vega Jr., was shot execution-style in front of his wife, his parents, two of his sons and another child in the Rio Grande Valley. Vega’s father was also shot but survived. They were on an idyllic family fishing trip before being robbed and ambushed.

The two suspects are Mexican nationals from Matamoros.“They’re here illegally,” my source said with a weary sigh. And not just that. They had been previously deported after committing other serious crimes, he says.“But we just drop the thugs off at the border, and they come right back.”

Obumbles and the Illegal Invasion: Coming Soon to a Town Near You---or YOUR TOWN:

The National Border Patrol Council issued a moving statement after a middle-of-the-night manhunt led to the capture and confessions of the two suspects this weekend:

“Agent Vega was armed and fought back to protect his family. During the course of the ensuing firefight Agent Vega’s father was hit in the leg and Agent Vega was mortally wounded. After Agent Vega fell, his family members continued to fight back. Agent Vega’s actions were in keeping with the finest traditions of the United States Border Patrol and his will be a place, deserved of honor and glory, when the final story of the United States Border Patrol is written.”

The White House and U.S. Chamber of Commerce may NOT speak up, but the NBPC gave the law enforcement officers on the border their just recognition:“We want to commend the Border Patrol agents and other law enforcement officers involved in the manhunt for Agent Vega’s killers. It is through their professionalism and tenacity that the wretched animals who committed this crime will face the full measure of Texas justice.”

No doubt the bleeding hearts will take offense at wretched animals being called what they are. I can hear “progressives” whipping out their overdrawn race cards as I type. That’s all they’ve got.
