Posted in: Israeli strike on Gaza kills 10; unrest spreads to West Bank See in context

Hamas showed no signs of backing down. So far, it has fired some 1,800 rockets toward Israel, some targeting the seaside metropolis of Tel Aviv, although more than a quarter of them have fallen short inside Gaza and most of the rest have been intercepted by missile defense systems.

If any neighboring nation or group had publicly vowed your destruction and started firing hundreds and hundreds of rockets into your towns and cities, what would you do in response? Send them cookies? Please.

Israel has every right to defend its nation and people. Its so sad how the narrative of many is to be anti-Israel. Do your homework about how Gaza and the “Palestinians” came to be. No other Arab nation would accept them when Israel became a sovereign nation again 73 years ago yesterday.

Posted in: Golden Week travel begins despite pleas from governors to stay home See in context

Not long ago there was a Go To Travel campaign and people were encouraged to travel and Government ministers endlessly said it was perfectly safe. And then there is a SOE, or is it just a quasi SOE, that basically says the virus comes out only after 8 PM ( or is it 9 PM, this seems to vary) and only in restaurants and bars and recently only if you drink alcohol. And the same officials in charge of all this still seemed to be doing the exact opposite going out in groups to these same places. Now people are supposed to believe these same people that they need to stay home and not travel.

Exactly this!!

I am glad there isn’t tougher government or police enforcement. That’s a good thing that Japan isn’t doing that against its citizens. Have you seen what has happened in Australia, England or some parts of the US? That is the horrific part.

Plus, the focus is on cases now but the death rate keeps going down. The narrative is cases. Enjoy the fact that you can choose what you want to do and not be forced to do so.
