Watcher's Council Nominations - Hamas Delenda Est Edition

 Indeed. One of the most ludicrous quotes out there about this situation  came from Secretary of State John Kerry, slamming the Hamas response to the Egyptian brokered ceasefire attempt:

"I cannot condemn strongly enough the actions of Hamas in so brazenly firing rockets in multiple numbers in the face of a goodwill effort to offer a ceasefire, in which Egypt and Israel worked together, that the international community strongly supports."

Kerry said that Hamas is "purposely playing politics" by continuing the rocket fire, using innocents as "human shields... against the laws of war."

"And that is why they are a terrorist organization," Kerry added.

So, why are you and President Obama still funding them, Mr. Secretary? And why do you want so badly to give a terrorist organization a state?

Welcome to the Watcher's Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the 'sphere, and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council.Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday morning.

Council News:

The Council In Action!!

*Nice Deb's Debra Heine scored with Holder DOJ Finally Finds A Scandal Worth Investigating - An Anti-Obama Parade Float at Breitbart.

*Yours Truly at Joshuapundit published two pieces over at the Times Of Israel, one pre ceasefire, A Ceasefire In Gaza? A Huge Mistake and one post ceasefire, The Ceasefire That Never Was Ends As Hamas Bombards Israel With Rockets

This week, Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion , Blazing Cat Fur and The Pirate's Cove earned honorable mention status with some great articles.

You can, too! Want to see your work appear on the Watcher’s Council homepage in our weekly contest listing? Didn’t get nominated by a Council member? No worries.

To bring something to my attention, simply head over to Joshuapundit and post the title a link to the piece you want considered along with an e-mail address ( which won't be published) in the comments section no later than Monday 6PM PST in order to be considered for our honorable mention category. Then return the favor  by creating a post on your site linking to the Watcher’s Council contest for the week when it comes out Wednesday morning

Simple, no?

It's a great way of exposing your best work to Watcher’s Council readers and Council members. while grabbing the increased traffic and notoriety. And how good is that, eh?

So, let's see what we have for you  this week....
