Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu criticized Hamas for putting civilians in harms way during the Sunday morning Cabinet meeting. We are striking Hamas with increasing strength. We are hitting commanders, militants, arsenals and command centers. The IDF, ISA, security services, firefighters, the Israel Police everyone is doing their part and doing it in the best way possible, he said. But one must understand how our enemy operates. Who hides in mosques?

Daredevils can’t be bullied: Great Bull Run at Hawthorne Race Course not for the meek
Hopefully. Stand up, and you’ll be gored. Theannouncer offered these important tips Saturday to the more than 4,000 people participating inthe Great Bull Run at Hawthorne Race Course. If one of the 20 bulls released in each run comes to a complete stop, that means it’s ready to attack and the track will be cleared immediately, allowing cowboys on horseback to lasso and remove the 1,500-pound beast, he said. If you’re afraid of being stomped on like a cigarette, simply veer off to one of the many recessed areas along the rail. You’ll be given a head start before the bulls are released, but no standing in the middle of the track. No hitting or slapping the bulls as they pass by at speeds of 35 mph. They hate that.

Iraqi parliament breaks deadlock to elect speaker, in first step toward forming new government | Fox News
According to the constitution, parliament now has 30 days to elect a president, who will then have 15 days to ask the leader of the largest bloc in the legislature to form a government. Then a prime minister will be picked. Under an informal agreement that took hold after the 2003 U.S.-led invasion, the speaker’s chair goes to a Sunni, the presidency to a Kurd and the prime minister’s post to a Shiite. The inability of al-Maliki’s government to prevent the militant offensive over the past month has deeply shaken confidence, both at home and abroad, in his ability to hold Iraq together. His opponents and even many of his former allies accuse him of trying to monopolize power and alienating the Sunni minority. Al-Maliki has so far refused to withdraw his candidacy, and insists he has a mandate because his State of Law bloc won the most seats in April elections.
