Streisand's Apparent Approval of Israeli War CrimesPolitical Perspective by Tim King Salem-News.com
She's doing a benefit expressly to support Israel's military.
(SALEM) - Celebrities who fail to object to Israel's atrocities and human rights violations are bad, but those who seek to directly benefit the over-funded government of Israel (That fails to take care of Holocaust survivors but kills Palestinians illegally every day) are in a category all by themselves.
As brave young Israelis increasingly refuse to partake in war crimes by resisting service in the Israeli Defence Forces, which is a commendable act, we learn that Barbra Streisand is going to raise money for Israel's soldiers.
Philip Weiss with Mondoweiss.net, reports that Barbra Streisand will play a Dec. 8 LA gala for the Israel Defense Forces. The event is hosted by Jason Alexander, who is going to forge the two-state solution, and sponsored by Haim Saban. (Hebrew link)
And thanks to this rich American woman, the IDF can buy more bullets to shoot civilians with, more incendiary devices and more white phosphorous to burn families in their homes the way the Nazi's did to their very own ancestors.
It is sick, this game of "security" and "terrorist" and I think that today the biggest terrorist is Barbra Streisand and she doesn't care about so many rank things Israel does, with its apartheid laws, separate laws for Jews and non-Jews, different sentences, 'Jewish-only' roads, this is what Streisand approves of.
Then there are the deadly bombing campaigns that are carried out on Gaza homes frequently.
The highly touted "rocket attacks"; responsible for 29 Israeli deaths in all time, since when they were first launched from Gaza in the early 90's, do not justify Israel's wrath.
I have included two video reports from our most experienced Gaza reporter, that is Ken O'Keefe. The first video shows the tragedy of the Samouni family, whose children were absolutely slaughtered by Israeli soldiers who also used one of the dead children for target practice. The second takes you to the center of the first attack against Gaza in Operation Cast Lead on the two-year anniversary of the slaughter, when Israeli bombs dropped on a police academy graduation, leaving broken and dying young men sprawled across the ground in agony and prayer.
Good job Barbra Streisand. Thanks for nothing, thanks for supporting these acts against children, little innocent kids who deserved to live as much as any Jewish kid, any Christian kid, and yet they were ruthlessly targeted and murdered by Israel's military and anyone who condones it has the value of the dirt on the bottom of my shoe. This is the work of animals.
Streisand wants to fuel that machine that targets Palestinian homes, schools and hospitals. (Operation Cast Lead)
And one more thing, my mom ran Glass Basket Antiques after spending years procuring valuable items from various types of sales in the Los Angeles area and she knew many antique dealers in the state.
Barbra Streisand by all accounts was the most difficult and snooty customer any ever encountered, and movie stars aren't a rarity in terms of collectors, so it isn't like they all behave or carry themselves and ultra snotty better-than-thou bags of conceit but this woman did, and although I have enjoyed her acting (had) in the past, I always knew from my mom that she was just a rotten human being to deal with, so here you go.
