Sorry but Im sure once the shell fragments lodged in the childrens heads are examined...it will be Israeli. Not a Hizbolla shell. It was Israels
option to use force, and Israels choice to attack and attempt to collectively punish the Lebanese and palestinian people.
The cowards are the very same cowards who killed the civilians on the beach and tried to lie their way out of it.
The pregnant woman on the street with the 5 year old child in palestine
The family of 12 in Lebanon the very first night of their attack
The 4 UN observers
The 75 year old woman and 2 children in palestine
The rest of the 750 dead Lebanese/Brazilian/Australian Civilians in Lebanon
The excuses are over with for this terrorist nation thinly veiled as a democracy. The world is watching.
I confess that, like many in the US, if not the West, I have supported Israel in her struggle to exist amid her "enemies". Americans, it seems,
always have a soft spot for the perceived "underdog".
Given Israel's conduct in the current crisis, that underdog has been shown to be more of a "junkyard dog"; and a dangerously rabid one at that.
Of course, with 20/20 hindsight, we can see clearly that at least some of what her critics were saying about Israel's heavy-handed tactics and
policies were true; although we seem to have been too smitten with the mythos of Israel to pay critical heed to thier warnings.
And now many of us feel betrayed by what we see as the sheer brutality of a one-time adored friend against true
underdogs; innocent women and
children, purposely targeted by supposedly "Precision-Guided" weapons of war.
We like to think of ourselves as moral, righteous, and compassionate. We trust that those we take into our hearts are of like character. Israel, our
beloved has shown herself to be ...a monster.
How quickly, and bitterly, Love can turn to Loathing!
I'm not a biblical scholar, but I am passingly familiar with the some of the "end Times" predictions contained in the bible. I've always found
much of what was written there to be difficult to believe.
One passage in particular, regarding the prophesy that "all nations would rise up against Israel", I found to be very difficult to accept as
possible; after-all, the special relationship between the US and Israel was rock-solid and immutable, I thought. What could ever change that? So, I
figured, it would never be that ALL
nations would rise up.
In light of her recent actions, however, I
must rise up in opposition.
Oh Israel! Wilst Thy Anger turn the whole of the World Against Thee, and thus shall Thee be Damned as the Harbinger of Mankind's Destruction?
