Can you believe it?

Well, the Israeli ambassador to the US, Ron Dermer, has stated that he thinks the IDF deserves the Nobel Peace Prize for the way in which they have conducted themselves in this current war with Hamas. I don't know about you, but the killings of over 600 people shouldn't qualify someone for the awarding of a Nobel Peace Prize, in my opinion.

I can't believe he had the gall to say the following, especially when the UN is currently convening on what actions (if any) they should take against Israel for alleged war crimes:


Speaking at this year’s Christians United for Israel gala, Israeli ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer claimed that, contrary to what human rights groups and the United Nations have claimed, the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) has conducted its assault on Hamas in Gaza with such caution and care for civilian lives that it deserves a Nobel Peace Prize for “unimaginable restraint.”

“Some are shamelessly accusing Israel of genocide and would put us in the dock for war crimes,” Dermer said during a speech that was repeatedly interrupted by protestors. “But the truth is that the Israeli Defense Forces should be given the Nobel Peace Prize … for fighting with unimaginable restraint.”

Dermer went on to compare Israel’s warfare with that of the United Kingdom during World War II, arguing that while he had no interest in criticizing Winston Churchill for his decision to repeatedly bomb civilians in Germany, the nearly 70-year-old historical example was a reminder that, when it comes to protecting civilian life, Israel could be doing much worse.

“[N]o one should accept criticism of Israel for acting with restraint that has not been shown and would not be shown by any nation on Earth,” Dermer continued. “I especially will not tolerate criticism of my country at a time when Israeli soldiers are dying so that innocent Palestinians can live.”

I think this guy lives on another planet. Comparing Israel's situation to that of Britain's in WW2. Stating that he won't tolerate criticism because Israeli soldiers are dying for the lives of innocent Palestinians. I mean, this guy seems to have some serious issues contemplating reality. Not to mention that these comments only display his perspective on the situations currently taking place...

That said, in regards to his statement about the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to the IDF, i only have one thing to say:

Considering the outright questionable awardings of previous Nobel Peace Prizes (Obama...), it actually wouldn't surprise me if they ever did present one to the IDF...

Isn't a Nobel peace prize given to people who's actions promote peace? Since when does "restraint" in a time of war qualify as peace?

Well, I guess we can go a head and give it to them.....stranger things have happened and it's not like it means anything to begin with.

Simply the words of a psychopathic war criminal, attempting to show support to the murderous thugs that do their bidding! I mean hey you have to keep the morale up, must not let them catch on to the idea that perhaps what they are doing is a crime against humanity.

Anyone else find the bolded part pretty funny? I guess Dermer's own crowd that he was trying to sell this lie to didn't believe him either. What does unimaginable restraint even mean? I can imagine some pretty horrific things. Is he trying to suggest that because Israeli soldiers didn't first kick the innocent Palestinians' children before killing their parents in front of them or some other nonsense that is even more horrific that it can excuse them from doing asymmetrical warfare and massacring many innocents?

One Palestinian CHILD killed every HOUR over the last 2 days:

That is deserving of a nobel peace prize?
Not in my book it isn't.

There are demons on both sides-but who has the capability to commit the most murder-and who IS commiting the most murder?

More like slaughtering civilians prize.I dont take sides in this but using military against civilians and rebels in my view is Overkill it is b.s..Why cant the Israels use small seal like teams to take out rebels i mean they are supposed to be such a great military but to me seems like they are cowards how they bomb hospitals ect.. I do not support my taxes well when i use to file them anyway to give millions and millions to Israel its b.s..And never forget one mans freedom fighter is another's terrorists......

You propose full-scale genocide and the actual scarring of the earth in response to localized genocide? I really don't know what to say to that...

Yes, pretty funny those accusing Israel of genocide often support genocide against Israel.

Anglojew got banned for defending Israel whereas this guy can propose genocide against Israel with no consequences.

This forum is rediculous.

In this day and age using tanks, jets and ilegel bomlets will get you the Nobel Peace if you bomb hospitals, schools and homes because it is not worth toilet paper these days and a few bribes from bankers say where the prise will go.

Over 600 people killed so far, they call it a war but only two came from "The other side"

Somebody needs to buy that idiot a dictionary.
peace

: a state in which there is no war or fighting

: an agreement to end a war

: a period of time when there is no war or fighting

restraint

: a way of limiting, controlling, or stopping something

: a device that limits a person's movement

: control over your emotions or behavior
How warped does a person have to be to think that restraining yourself leads to a Peace Prize.
