I agree with you. I hear and read a lot of rhetoric about how Hamas hides weapons in schools and hospitals, and uses women and children as shields,
therefore Israel must defend itself by blowing up schools and hospitals, and women and children.
However, Israel has never proffered any proof whatsoever that this is so.
All I hear is a bunch of American Israeli apologists on TV who say that they must protect themselves against a 21st century "holocaust", so they
have to keep pounding the Gaza strip with bombs until the terrorists are "gone"....and if you don't agree, you're an 'anti-semite'.
First of all, most of those people in Israel are pure European, there isn't a drop of Semite blood in them....unlike the people they are killing, who
are 100% Semite, but not of the Jewish faith.
Secondly, they scream about avoiding a "holocaust", while they are involved in one. This is nothing short of wholesale genocide of a people.
Thirdly, Israel gets approximately 1/5 of the United State's foreign aid budget, and all their weapons (which are much more formidable than anything
the Palestinians in their ghetto have) are American made, and paid for with American tax dollars. Therefore, every single dead and injured person in
Palestine was murdered courtesy of Uncle Sugar.
However, what can one expect when AIPAC runs through the halls of government in this country, dictating our foreign policy, dictating that we write
carte blanche checks for them (biggest welfare leeches we have), and way too many of our politicians hold dual citizenship with Israel?
The whole thing is utterly sickening to me.
Here come the Israeli apologists and war-mongers with excuses as to why genocide is okay in this case, in 3.....2......1......
