OpEdNews Quicklink: Club Med for Terrorists - By RON PROSOR; NY Times | Global politics | Scoop.it
Since Israel disengaged from Gaza in 2005, Hamas has dragged us into three rounds of major assaults, and more than 14,800 rockets have been fired into Israel by the group or its proxies.In recent years, the sheikhs of Doha, Qatar's capital, have funneled hundreds of millions of dollars to Gaza. Every one of Hamas's tunnels and rockets might as well have had a sign that read 'Made possible through a kind donation from the emir of Qatar,' petroleum kingdom determined to buy its way to regional hegemony which has used proxies to leverage influence and destabilize rivals. Qatar's proxies of choice have been radical regimes and extremist groups.... The emirate has also used the Arabic service of Al Jazeera news network to spread radical messages that have inflamed sectarian divides.To bring about a sustained calm, the message to Qatar should be clear: Stop financing Hamas.

OpEdNews Quicklink: Hillary Clinton "gung-ho" and a "war hawk," says Rand Paul | Global politics | Scoop.it
Calling Hillary Clinton "a war hawk," Senator Rand Paul says that if the former secretary of state seeks the presidency, some voters will worry that she will get the US involved in another Middle East war. Paul is a leading anti-interventionist in the GOP and is considering running for president. Last year he opposed President Obama's call for military action in Syria. In an interview that aired Sunday on NBC's Meet the Press, Paul predicted a "transformational election" if the Democrats nominate "a war hawk like Hillary Clinton."

"The United States cannot go it alone in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, the extremist group known as ISIS whose ruthlessness and killing has dumbfounded and horrified the civilized world. The prospects of defeating ISIS would be greatly improved if other Muslim nations could see ISIS for the threat it is. But, like Iraq, they are mired in petty competitions and Sunni-Shiite religious divisions and many have their own relations with extremists of one kind or another.

There seems to be an astounding "disconnect" with the American people. Oh they're connected alright w/ their cell phones, IPODS & whatever new electronic gadgetry that emerges from the tech industry. But the question is connected to what beyond friends, family, music, games? They seem to be disengaged from what's happening around them; much less what's happening in America & the world.
