The conflict between Hamas and Israel has, as Colonel Lawrence A. Franklin documents, the different military tactics used by Hamas and Israel: "Would Hamas have dropped millions of leaflets to warn civilian residents before staging bombing runs? Would Hamas have tailored its air targeting to avoid, as much as possible, innocents from becoming casualties?"
Gatestone contributors also tried to draw attention to the Obama Administration's failure to address the threat of missiles in the hands of Iran, among other rogue regimes and terrorist organizations. "Missiles are indeed becoming the weapon of choice of both terror groups and rogue states," writes Peter Huessy. Should America care? (Yes!)
Meanwhile, Raymond Ibrahim argues that the Obama Administration keeps trying to brush under the table growing evidence of the worldwide targeting of Christians: "President Barack Obama was criticized by human rights activists for not addressing the plight of Christians and other minorities during his talks with leaders in Saudi Arabia, where Christianity is actively banned," he notes. He goes on to underscore the often lawless and savage record of the Muslim persecution Christians worldwide that occurred in just the month of March.
In other Gatestone articles last week, Timon Dias discusses why The Hague has been labeled "Jihad City"; Khaled Abu Toameh writes why Hamas rejected Egypt's offer for a cease-fire; Bassam Tawil shows why the threat of jihadism leaves no place, including Vatican City, safe from terror; and Soeren Kern reviews some major trends emerging between Britain and Islam.
