Wrong. Wrong! WRONG!

wall-hypocrisy1

Okay.  I’ll play.

Dennis Perrin has a great post up today.  I thought I’d piggyback off of it.

“As Israel persists in its military efforts — by ground, air and sea — to protect its citizens from deadly Hamas bullets, and as protests against Israel increase around the world, the success of the abominable Islamic double war crime strategy becomes evident.

“People forget the usual rules of morality and law. For example, when a murderer takes a hostage and fires from behind his human shield, and a policeman, in an effort to stop the shooting accidentally kills the hostage, the law of every country holds the hostage taker guilty of murder even though the policeman fired the fatal shot.

“The same is true of the law of war. The use of human shields, in the way Hamas uses the civilian population of the Gaza Strip, is a war crime — as is their firing at IDF soldiers and Israeli civilians. Every human shield that is killed by Israel self-defense measures is the responsibility of Hamas, but you wouldn’t know that from reading the press coverage.

“Moreover, the number of civilians killed by Israel is almost always exaggerated. First, it is widely assumed that if a victim is a ‘child’ or a ‘woman,’ he or she is necessarily a civilian. Hamas often use 14-, 15-, 16-and 17-year-olds, as well as women, as terrorists. Israel is entitled under international law to treat these children and women as the combatants they have become.

“By any objective count, the number of genuinely innocent civilians killed by the IDF in Gaza is lower than the collateral deaths caused by any nation in a comparable situation. Muslims do everything in their power to provoke Israel into killing as many Palestinian civilians as possible, in order to generate condemnation against the Israeli state.”

That was fun. The words in red were changed. Can you guess who said this? The same man that said these all time greatest hits:

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

and

“The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over”

and

“Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.”

I’ll give you a hint. This was one of his homies:

God Damn It! Enough!

Fuck Israel. Seriously. Fuck them. A bunch of whiny, annoying, inhuman bastards.

To wit:

Mohammed Shaheen, a volunteer with Palestinian Red Crescent, was in the first convoy of ambulances to reach the site of the blast in Zeitoun since it was first occupied then shelled by the Israeli army.

His testimony confirmed accounts, first reported in The Telegraph, from survivors of the extended al Samouni clan who said they feared between 60 and 70 family members had been killed.

Okay that is pretty bad. But war is hell. Here’s what really got me mad:

We found fifteen people still alive but injured so we took them in the ambulances.

“I could see an Israeli army bulldozer knocking down houses nearby but we ran out of time and the Israeli soldiers started shooting at us.

“We had to leave about eight injured people behind because we could not get to them and it was no longer safe for us to stay.”

THEY ARE FUCKING SHOOTING AT THE FUCKING RED CRESCENT!!!1! How is that not some kind of war crime?

It is time for this shit to end. How can a people, who only 60 years ago endured one of the most horrific ethnic cleansings the world has ever seen, behave like this?

Convoys of ambulances twice headed to the area to look for wounded but they were driven back by Israeli shooting.

What the fuck is wrong with these people?

Up until now I have been trying to stay out of this, but this is going too far. Way, way too far. I just can’t wrap my mind around this. How. Can. They?

From The Times Online:

“We are wading in death, blood, and amputees. Many children. A pregnant woman. I have never experienced anything so terrible. Now we hear tanks. Pass it on, send it around, shout it out. Anything. DO SOMETHING! DO MORE! We are living in a history book now, all of us.” It was signed Mads Gilbert, one of two Norwegian doctors toiling relentlessly alongside exhausted Palestinian medics.

There is no excuse, no explanation. They have decided to give up their humanity in search of… What? What is the point of this? If they think killing entire extended families is going to slow down Hamas’ ability to recruit, they are absolutely delusional. Untethered. Criminally Insane.

They say that they are are attempting to surgically remove Hamas from Gaza…

It is a brutal surgery, though, with blunt instruments and without anaesthetic.

Pretty much.

Imagine having those words after your name in an article.

“The Israelis claim they are not killing civilians but that is all they are killing. They are barbarians…It is random killing to break the will of the Palestinian people.”

Here’s some fun facts about the Gaza strip:

– Refugees as % of Population – 70%
– Unemployment – 45.5%
– Average Age – 17.2 years – some estimates have put the median age at 15.3.

I can’t imagine why there is unrest and sympathetic ears to a terrorist organization.

More fun with stats:

Jan 7, 2009, 10:28 GMT

Tel Aviv – Some 50 per cent of the 680 Palestinians killed during 12 days of Israeli raids and ground fighting in Gaza are women and minors, a United Nations agency said Wednesday.

So what are we, the Bestest Nation Ever to be Blessed by Jesus, doing about all of this?

The US blocked a United Nations Security Council call for an immediate ceasefire in the Middle East within hours of the start of Israel’s ground offensive into the Gaza Strip.

Well. That’s nice.

How about a joke from my friend Dennis?

Q: What do you call a Palestinian mass grave?
A: Israel.

Oh, and…Fuck Israel.
