WAR: Israel defends itself from Hamas rocket attacks

Yesterday, Israel launched Operation Pillar of Cloud, a campaign of self-defense that seeks to take down the terrorist infrastructure of Hamas in the West Bank. Already, the Israeli Defense Force has killed a top Hama official Ahmed Jabari, and they have hit Hamas rocket sites and other strategic targets.

TheBlaze reports:

The Israeli mission is said to be a response that was launched after days of heavy rocket fire from Gaza. Interior Minister Eli Yishai told Israel Channel 2 that more than 100 rockets had been launched into Israel this week and that the nation had lost its ability to prevent them from entering. This operations is clearly a reaction to that fact — one that has been given no definitive timeframe, although one Israel Radio correspondent claims it could last between a few days and one week.

On Wednesday afternoon, IDF’s official spokespeople took to Twitter, where a dire warning was issued to Hamas: “We recommend that no Hamas operatives, whether low level or senior leaders, show their faces above ground in the days ahead.”

Glenn said, "Hamas today is at war with Israel, and Israel is at war with Hamas. And it is going to drag the entire region into chaos. Meanwhile, Hamas is using a photo of a dead child from Syria to wage a propaganda war against Israel. And I watched NBC today. Of course they ‑‑ whose side do you think they're on?"

"Meanwhile the conservative press is not backing Israel. They'll remain neutral, fair and balanced, of course. The world is at war. Whether you like to admit it or not, the world is at war, and this is the way it always ends. When the world is being redesigned and borders are being redrawn and currencies need to be reset, the world always goes to war."

"We've been warning you about what was coming in the Middle East since before this president was in office. We warned ‑‑ we warned in 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, '10, '11 and '12: It's coming. Just, the conditions have to be right, and the conditions are beginning to be right. The world has to turn, including us, has to turn against Israel, and we are. The voices are being snuffed out. The world needs a bad guy and we're about to have two of them. We're about to have Israel and the Great Satan, but the Great Satan is turning. The Great Satan is turning and they think they are going to be able to save themselves by coming in at the end and saying, 'Oh, boy, we were on your side the whole time.' By funding evil, by arming evil. But evil remembers."

"And in the end, whether you like it or not, you will be fighting against radical Islam. Whether it is in the streets here in America or the streets of Benghazi, you will be fighting radical Islam. And if it's not you, it will be your children. I'd rather have the fight myself. I'd rather have the fight when we have the strength to fight. I'd rather fight it with paperwork. I'd rather fight it in the court system than with guns. I'd rather fight it with the truth because that's really all that is required. The truth. But the truth is too painful of an agenda."

"The truth can get you killed today. The truth can get you smeared today. But the truth is coming. The truth is coming in our currency. Last night we did a show on the Weimar Republic and showed you what happens when you print currency. You could be a billionaire. Who wants to be a billionaire? People were making hundreds of billions of dollars by the end in the Weimar Republic. Last night I laid out on a giant chalkboard all the things that Germany did. They're exactly the same as what we have done.

"And the most important thing that Germany did in the end was the decay of societal values. The decay of the truth. The decay of man's love for man. I told you when Tunisia, when the guy first set himself on fire, the President said, 'That's Rosa Parks'; I said, 'That's the Archduke Ferdinand.'"

"When Egypt first started rioting in the streets, I said, 'That's the beginning of the Caliphate'; the President said 'That's the Muslim Brotherhood, they're largely secular and our friend.'"

"When Hamas was attacked yesterday by Israel, I said, 'That's the beginning of World War III'; the President and everybody else says, 'There goes Israel, there they go again. We should talk some more to our enemies.'"

This morning before going on radio, Glenn wrote on Facebook, "The world is going crazy! Over a hundred missiles bombarded the south of Israel last night, one hit a house in the town of Kiryat Malachi, killing 3 and injuring 9, this little girl was one of those injured."

He attached the photo below:

"People need to see this picture, however hard it is," he added.

Glenn will be focusing on the conflict between Israel and Hamas tonight on TheBlaze TV at 5pm ET.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
