For me, this has nothing to do with religion, ethnic background, language or politics.
It is as simple as one nation pounding all hell out of another weaker nation of people who are trapped.
Yes, I understand that Hamas has been firing rockets at innocent civilians in Israel, I understand that the Israelis need defending from such attacks,
but this is only being done to secure votes in an election.
How on Earth is bombing Gaza going to help the Israeli people? All it is doing is making thousands more young people want to fight Israel!
You don't need to be a political analyst to figure this one out. You don't even need to have an average IQ.
You just need to have common sense.
They are doing it to win votes, then continue the constant battle so they have another chance to gain another win in an election the next time. It's
a method of convincing an emotional population that you are acting in their interests, trying to protect them.
The Israelis will soon forget that their government spent years trying to be diplomatic and appeasing the international community, but they will
remember the "revenge" enacted in their name, conveniently before an election.
I have had sympathy for Israel before, but no longer. Israel is a bully, using indiscriminate bombing to attack a weakened and trapped population.
Israel is not a victim now, they are the perpetrators of inhumane crimes against civilians.
If I had the chance, I'd be joining one of the many international protests outside an Israeli embassy.
And, on a side note, I am extremely annoyed at the US for sitting back and mumbling disapproval.
They were so quick to verbally jump on Russia the moment they stepped a booted foot towards South Ossetia, and yet this is not worthy of massive
condemnation because they are an ally?
And the United Nations, as usual they talk the talk and make statements... I'm sure they have about five pre-written statements and release the
appropriate one to match the level of public outrage.
I'll bet they're now having a meeting to discuss what they should discuss at the next meeting of discussions about their meetings.
It's all rubbish designed to keep a few people in very well paid jobs, heaven forbid they actually have to DO anything to save peoples lives!
So, to recap, Israel lost any sympathy from me when they so blatantly acted so violently toward a small population in order to secure governmental
It's pathetic, cannot be defended, and must be stopped by all previous allies of that nation.
