Photo of surviving Hamas terror chief Muhamad Deif vacating at the beach, UPDATE: Foxnews report Deif Dead

In the Hamptons I think:

Update 1:
Bonus update, Israel misses opportunity to eliminate a lot of terrorists in one shot - because of that silly "humanitarian moral guidance" or something... think of this the next time Israel is accused of indiscriminate killing of "civilians":

Update 2:
Fox news: Hamas’ military chief believed to have been killed in airstrike, sources say
Hamas' military chief is believed to have been killed in an airstrike in Gaza early Wednesday, Israeli intelligence sources tell Fox News.

Israeli officials said Wednesday the country's military targeted Mohammed Deif after militants fired rockets at Israeli cities just hours before a temporary cease-fire was set to expire.

The Times of Israel reported that a house believed to be the home of Deif was hit early Wednesday. Dief has escaped numerous Israeli assassination attempts in the past. It was not immediately clear whether he was there at the time of the attack. The paper also reported that the strike killed Dief's wife and infant son.

Israeli government officials expressed support for the operation throughout the day Wednesday.

Justice Minister Tzipi Livni told the news website Ynet that "[Dief's] his liquidation is not just legitimate but desirable, in my opinion."

Science and Technology Minister Yaakov Perry, a former head of the Israeli security agency Shin Bet, told Israel's Army Radio that "if there had been intelligence that Mohammad Deif was not in that house, we would not have blown it up."

And for anyone who needs this explained: This post started with a reference to week-end at Barney's movie, because Hamas immediately began with claims of Deif still being a living terrorist, where it appears now he is a walking corpse terrorist, running around, yelling: "I kill you!"

Obama the great solves the Israeli-Arab conflict, brings world peace, by halting ammo/arms to Israel while 4 million Israelis sit in shelters as Hamas bombards them

Obama the great solves the Israeli-Arab conflict, brings world peace, by halting ammo/arms to Israel while 4 million Israelis sit in shelters as Hamas bombards them.

At some point, we have got to stop being surprised by this administration. This guy in the WH is really as bad as we have anticipated, and everything told about his treatment of Israel in the past 6 years is true. When he said to Friedman in that interview last week that he's not worried about Israel's survival - you could have taken that to mean the worse, because he really doesn't care, and is working hard to make the situation even worse.

Report: US halted weapons transfer to Israel during Gaza offensive

Is that Obama in the middle?
Amid tensions between Netanyahu and Obama, the US halted transfer of 'Hellfire' air-to-surface missiles, 'Wall Street Journal' reports.

Amid diplomatic tensions between US President Barack Obama's administration and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, the US halted a shipment of air-to-ground missiles to Israel last month during Israel's offensive in the Gaza Strip, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.

In July, Israel requested "through military-to-military channels a large number of Hellfire missiles", a first batch of which was about to be released to Israel, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing Israeli and American officials.

But the Pentagon immediately put the shipment on hold, and top officials at the White House instructed US defense agencies to consult with the White House and the State Department before approving any additional Israeli requests, according to the report.

A senior Obama administration official was quoted in the report as saying the decision to scrutinize future transfers at the highest levels amounted to "the United States saying 'The buck stops here. Wait a second…It's not OK anymore."

The report depicted a context of poor relations between Obama and Netanyahu and claimed that the decision to halt the weapons transfer was made at a point when the White House and State Department became "increasingly disturbed by what they saw as heavy-handed battlefield tactics that they believed risked a humanitarian catastrophe," in Gaza.

Dumb question

How would you fare as a top world diplomat? Suppose you would be faced with the following scenario:

Your population is threatened with indiscriminate bombardment unless you let a terrorist group have a sea port. Do you:
A. Give the terrorists a sea-port, so they can acquire more rockets
B. Beg the terrorists not to fire
C. Let the terrorists bombard first, then consider non-effective retaliation into empty dunes
D. Eliminate the terrorists

Somehow - the answer to that question is illusive to today's global decision makers in US/EU/UN/UK and thus in Israel - they cannot proceed with the only viable reasonable option.

Video: Gaza war in a nutshell; Hamas places rockets outside hotel,media doesn't report until allowed out of Gaza

Via Israel-Matzav

They fired from that densely populated location before, Israel warned the opposite hotel to evacuate and eventually didn't retaliate.
This should be rebroadcasted around the world - this is what this entire war was conducted like. This is why there so many dead Arabs.
