Why Oh Why Israel?Tim King Salem-News.com
Is human depravity really the only possible option?
(SACRAMENTO, CA) - What possible reason exists to justify the gaping hole Israel left in Gaza's heart? How can pounding people into burning pools of twisted torture and grief be an answer? What on earth justifies this violence?
This video is so heartbreaking.
It shows what happens when one force unleashes the hounds of hell on another. Israel's aggression toward the people of Gaza and the U.S. blessing of it proves that we are no longer fit to continue, we might as well give up.
I do not think that the U.S. government and its people are capable of separating themselves from their unwavering support of the 'Jewish state' as it is often called. They would rather approve of this type of ill treatment of mankind than dare object to what Israel's hardline right-wing Zionist government really means and represents.
I do not believe that any person who supports this is worth their weight in you-know-what. The video below shows that Israel has gone too far in their desire to wipe Palestine from the map. Their political leaders and dogs of war have crossed the line a thousand times over.
I fear for the people of Israel in the near future. Why? Because more than ninety percent of this world is done with their tactics of mass murder and human beings are just heartbroken over the conceited American doctrine to accept the sinful murder of children in the name of 'Israeli security'.
It seems my understanding of security and theirs is an entirely different thing. Really though, if one thing is crystal clear, it is that Israel has a game plan. Their goal is the possession of all of the land that belongs to other people in Palestine.
People still believe unwaveringly, in 2012- that God made a real estate deal for them because their ancestors suffered, as if others didn't, sheesh! The saddest part is that the Jewish victims of the Holocaust in Israel today exist in abject poverty and there is no stellar government program to help them unless they moved to Israel by 1953. Those who did not receive more support money every month from the German government than their own, and that is a shame. Other Holocaust survivors rally for the freedom of Palestine and hate seeing Israel become the vicimizer... rather than the victim it constantly claims to me.
Yesterday, Israel had an ad showing up without our control on Salem-News.com (Google ads) that claimed, "Israel- the only democracy in the middle east is surrounded by hostile enemies" or something close to that. What countries are those again? Egypt? Jordan? Or was the 'country' reference toward Palestine?
At any rate, Israel has issued false statements for so long that mainstream people are finally starting to at least ask questions.
I have people ask, even though I write about Sri Lanka and Burma more, why I "single out" Israel for my reports. The contrast between the images of hundreds of murdered and grievously injured people and that question, confounds me.
At any rate, there is no excuse. Ignorance is bliss but it doesn't get you off in court because it is no reason for failing to obey the law. One does not need a law or rulebook though to look at these images and see the video and comprehend what the U.S. government backs.
Can you imagine the hatred the Palestinians they must have for our politics?
And how does one get their mind around the fact that almost every person in this video lost loved ones during the last two substantial Israeli attacks on Gaza?
How can they stand to hear the crying children, or to see the four-year old holding the bandaged one-year old baby sibling; their own parents nowhere in sight?
The bodies of people, children; being lowered out of buildings with their head unrecognizable as a human body part?
These are just questions, but they need answers... and we need to learn what type of programming goes on in Israel and here and we need to smack a few thousand preachers and rabbis who tell people to support Israel, the 'chosen ones' as they do this constantly.
Remember that Israel does not ever stop attacking Gaza. It often does more isolated attacks. Once they said their U.S. made F-16 attacked a terrorist facility, only our reporter Ken O'Keefe was there, literally at the scene... where a pharmaceutical storage building was burning outrageously. Israel said 'terrorist' and really attacked 'medicine' and there is a lot of difference.
The Grief of Victims
I just spent the last hour snapping still images from this video, and I could take thousands from this clip alone. It is absolutely incredible that any modern nation would do this.
32 Israelis have died in the Gaza 'rocket attacks' in all time, since the first one was fired in the early 1990's. Israel kills that many people inside of a single building during these repeated deadly military sieges.
I was moved by the way the rescue workers of Gaza were able to rescue and retrieve the victims of this extensive attack, of course that is probably a top job in this walled off concentration camp...
The ambulance workers have paid such a price in Gaza as they are often the preferred victims of the Israeli military. This targeting of health and aid workers is extremely well-documented and happens almost routinely, as does the general denial of medical treatment which Israel is famous for.
Just don't let a day pass without reminding yourself that the American government is who is truly responsible for this death and fear and carnage involving innocent little children who are forever marred and scarred by their 'Israel experience'. Lest we forget that they are expected not to hate or to want to avenge the needless murders of their families.
The USA with its little lapdog Canada and a handful of other little crappy countries financially dependent on the great evaporating U.S. economy, are all Israel has left for a cheerleader squad.
It isn't much, in fact it is downright pathetic and good reason for why Israel lives in such constant paranoia. If it had actually stuck to security instead of conquest it would have had a chance but now it doesn't have a ghost chance in hell.
The U.S. is the sole protectorate of Israel and there has been nothing but rock-solid support for Israel from the beginning. The standing ovations for Benjamin Netanyahu a few months ago in Congress are all most of us needed to know, as if we already didn't.
If the government of this 'WalMart' of state terrorism cared about their own citizens, they would allow peace to have a chance, but instead with Israel it is war war war and then they pause, and revive the war.
