Israel's Supporters Dismiss 'Golden Rule'; Navigate With a Shattered Moral CompassPolitical Perspective by Tim King Salem-News.com
There simply are no similar pictures of Israeli people being killed.
(SACRAMENTO, CA) - The appearance of survivors after a bomb has destroyed the building they were in, is profoundly unforgettable. They are rare; most people just die when the concrete crashes down onto their heads.
Bombing victims covered in grayish dust - who shortly before, were school children sitting in a classroom, literally smashed to pieces. They are the victims of aerial bombing raids by the biggest cowards on the face of this earth; fighter pilots and drone drivers. They are inhuman to say the least. With itchy trigger fingers, they never see their enemies or experience the reality of their deeds. Of course the word 'enemy' is subjective, how can little kids in a classroom be the enemy?
It is a shame that Americans are indifferent to the people of Gaza. Human beings just like anyone else, these innocents are the victims of Israeli military aggression and it is not a pretty picture as this video shows. The Israel supporters who endorse this don't have a right to share the air with the rest of us.
Though the past is a different story, today there simply are no similar pictures of Israeli people being killed. Huge numbers of Israelis know this, that is why they are on the side of peace and ending the drive to seize Palestinian land and eliminate the native, indigenous Palestinians.
We are in a period where years of non-violent resistance have been the order of the day in Palestine, to no avail. All the reduced violence has brought them is more death. The infamous 'rockets' that have been fired out of Gaza have killed just over 30 people in all time.
30 people, did you read that? T-h-i-r-t-y- p-e-o-p-l-e.
The video below, shows the aftermath of Israel's recent attack on Gaza.
Americans need to realize that the weapons which led to these people becoming bombed bloody corpses, were bought and paid for by hard-earned wages of Americans. It is sinful, shameful, and there are not two sides to this story. Religious superiority is the motivation; more land that belongs to the Palestinians, and their elimination, is the goal.
$647 Million in Military Aid for Israel's War Crimes
Now, Israel is being handed even more of poor Americans' money, through Congress. As Mohamed Khodr cited in his article yesterday, the United States will sell Israel munitions worth $647 million, in order to renew the inventory of the Israel Defense Forces following the massive bombings in Gaza during Operation Pillar of Defense. 
Remember, T-h-i-r-t-y- p-e-o-p-l-e...
The funding of Israel supports the murder of Palestinian children and other stupid and evil things, like the building of 'Jewish-only' roads, and it perpetuates the ability of Israel to commit mass murder. There is nothing about this that is acceptable. American President Barack Obama, no matter what, is behaving like an enemy of humanity and so is Hillary Clinton and every single American who backs this mindless pogrom conducted by Israel.
So, get our your popcorn and watch this video that shows people who used to be children, before becoming victims of murder and mayhem.
The bottom line is that Israel needs to be stopped, halted in its tracks, and no matter how many advertisements we will never see because of our position, it is OK, because everything we report on the apartheid conflict is accurate and we stand behind it. Israel's political elite, the Likud party at the top of the list, are a menace to the morals we convey to our children.
I get poorer. You get poorer, and Netanyahu's Israeli slaughterhouse campaign gets richer.
Conscience calls upon us to to join with Jews who are struggling against genocide. Never let anyone affect you with their retarded-like accusations of antisemitism, we love all people equally.
