    Ain’t technology and the social media wunnerful? Bigotry, racism, a lust for violence and hatred for all to see. Ambassadors for Israel.

    Excellent reports, Scott, which include the kind of revealing details that I didn’t find in my New York Times this morning. But please be careful.

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Pam Geller’s racist ad against Arabs is popping up all over Chicago in transit ads: link to bnd.com

    Remember the gentle American folks who came out all in genteel picnic garb to watch the Battle of Bull Run from a safe hill?

    Rabbi Eric Joffie on why Israeli military nihilism is progressive

    link to haaretz.com

    And if progressive American Jews ask me why Israel can’t just muddle through, my answer is this: Israel came into being so that Jewish children would never again have to huddle together in fear, terrorized by enemies of the Jewish people, while their parents stood by helplessly. Helping those children is a progressive cause. And doing nothing for them undermines the sovereignty of the Jewish state and strikes a fatal blow at the very raison d’etre of Zionism.

      Israelis are used to impunity . They worship technology. With iron sieve malfunctioning they realise barak can’t say they are safe .

    For all the PR and bragging Israel was doing, it turned out that Iron Dome has a 20% sucess rate.

      Really?

      Supposedly they’ve knocked down over 130 Hamas rockets thus far. But more importantly:

      Jeffrey Goldberg

      @JeffreyGoldberg
      A source says that Israel has destroyed 90 percent of Hamas’s longer-range missiles. Seems to be a main tactical goal of Israeli operation.

      Looks from here that Iron Dome saved a lot of Israelis already, and worked in conjunction with Israel’s other long range resources to preempt any significant damage by Hamas’s latest more long range and sophisticated missiles. Israeli state 1 of a 2 stage preemption process, with Iran in Israeli crosshairs. Israel planned all this, and we will see more, with Palestinian bodies paying their usual high price, and USA aiding Israel even more–US funded Iron Dome, and will do more for Israel, no matter how sad American material life becomes. Nobody is even suggesting cutting aid to Israel while US is at the fiscal/debt cliff.
