White House Spokesman Josh Earnest: Not Appropriate for Hamas to Restore Rocket Fire

As just reported by The Times of Israel (http://www.timesofisrael.com/day-32-hamas-warns-that-without-deal-on-harbor-itll-resume-attacks-friday/):

"White House Spokesman Josh Earnest sounded a cautious note today, saying that the White House 'did not believe it was appropriate for Hamas to restore rocket fire' in a tempered response to the reescalation of violence between Israel and Gaza."

Guess what, Josh? Firing rockets at civilian population centers is more than inappropriate. It's a war crime.

I never thought it possible that I could miss Jay Carney.

Consider also what, again according to The Times of Israel (http://www.timesofisrael.com/day-33-us-hopes-for-new-gaza-truce-in-coming-hours-livni-submits-plan-to-end-conflict/), US State Department Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf had to tell reporters today:

"What Hamas did today in its decision to resume rocket fire puts the citizens of Gaza under greater risk."

Hamas rocket fire puts the citizens of Gaza under greater risk? True, we are being informed by the Israel Defense Forces, that 20 percent of the rockets fired by Hamas on Friday fell on Gaza, but apparently Harf also has a problem declaring that rocket fire aimed at Israeli civilian population centers is a war crime.

Let there be no mistake about it: Obama & Co. are not friends of Israel.
