Coming home from kindergarten to discover Israel demolished your home

Salameh al-Kasasi came home from kindergarten on Sunday to discover that his home had been demolished. He left home in the morning and returned at midday – to nothing. When his father arrived, after having been detained by Israeli police for 40 minutes, he saw his son standing on the heap of rubble and poking around in it.

“What are you looking for?” he asked his little boy. “For my yellow teacup,” the boy replied. The beloved cup was found a few minutes later amid the pile of stones that had once been a house.

Salameh is a 4 year old Palestinian boy from the Bedouin village of Saawa located in the Negev. Saawa has been demolished four before times as Israel does not recognise it.

President Obama threatened to use the U.S. military to shoot down Israeli fighter jets last year if they attempted to destroy Iranian nuclear facilities, the Bethlehem news agency Ma’an reported Sunday.

If this is true then threatening to shoot down allied planes to defend a hostile nation’s attempt to get a power weapon is quite clearly aid and comfort to the enemy.  We have a word for that.  And while I know the appropriate actions cannot be taken until this worthless excuse for a human is in office I want him in cuffs the second he is out and into a trial as quickly as possible.

Please note the source is not some bullshit site like infowars—it’s the Washington Times.  Not exactly some hack rag.

BOMBSHELL REPORT: Obama threatened to shoot down Israeli aircraft

According to a report by a Kuwaiti newspaper, President Obama has threatened to shoot down Israeli aircraft in the event that Israel attacked Iran’s nuclear facilities.

From Israel National News:

The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
Following Obama’s threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack.
According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel’s back.
The report claimed that an unnamed Israeli minister who has good ties with the US administration revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry, and that Obama then threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
