11:50 am So let me get this straight...

President Obama is not a Muslim...

But President Obama has decided that ISIS does not speak for Islam.

As a non-Muslim, can Obama really make that decision? Especially when every member of ISIS (which is becoming popular among the Muslims) say they do represent Islam.

So what's Obama's explanation? He says, "Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents"

Obama apparently is not an expert on Islam, because off-hand I can name a dozen Islamic groups that also slaughter Muslims.
There's a stat that up to 20% of global Muslims support these terror groups as the representatives of Islam. We're talking about hundreds of million of people.

Obama sure just dismissed the faith of a lot of people in one little sentence.

As it happens, Hamas just took 11 Muslims into the public square this morning in Gaza, and slaughtered them.

But wait, isn't Hamas not like ISIS?

I guess the important difference is that Hamas shot them, but didn't behead them.

It's such an important distinction.

But now I'm confused. Does Hamas also not speak for Islam?

10:21am Roundup from IDF Spox.

Confirmed: IDF and Israeli security forces eliminated senior Hamas terrorists Raed Attar and Mohamed Abu Shamala in Gaza last night.

Attar and Abu Shamala were high-ranking Hamas commanders responsible for major terror attacks against Israelis.

Raed Attar played a major role in tunnel infiltrations, terror attacks that killed Israelis, and the kidnapping of SFC Gilad Shalit.

Abu Shamala, commander of Hamas forces in S Gaza, was directly involved in dozens of terror attacks, including the murders of IDF soldiers.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

9:56am Arab press in Gaza report yet another IDF targeted airstrike in Gaza against a top Hamas leader.

The Muqata Security team's analysis for today: There is going to be a major Hamas rocket retaliation against Israel today ... as Hamas rages over the loss of some of their top terror heads. We expect many rocket barrages like yesterday (over 140 rockets fired yesterday)...including at Central Israel and Jerusalem. Stay Safe everyone!
