According to el Presidenté Barack Hussein Obama, “Israel has the right to defend itself.” You’ll of course remember Obama, he would be America’s el Jefé?
Israel has the right to defend itself. From? Oh wait, those icky bottle rocket launching Hamas “terrorista” types.
Hamas doesn’t have an air force. Hamas doesn’t have the unequivocal support of an American war machine. Hamas doesn’t have the effeminate equivocatory support of an Israeli occupied US Congress.
Nope. Hamas has NADA! Hamas does have the courage of their convictions. Hamas does have moral authority. Hamas IS the legally elected government in Gaza. Gaza is now a pounded senseless ghetto.
Israel has no right to wage a war of naked aggression on the civilian population of Gaza. The genocide being wrought on Gaza by the Nazi Israelis is as illegitimate as it is immoral and war criminal. Period. Israel’s crimes against Palestinian humanity flies in the face of the Geneva Convention, the UN Charter, and basic human decency.
The silence that exudes from deep inside the Beltway Babylon is inhuman. How in the fuck does el Jefé give cover to the murderous Israelis and then have a quiet dinner with the First Family. I could imagine that dinner in the White House is one quiet affair. The Obama girls, Golda and Yentl, have to be up to speed on global affairs. They’d have to look at one another and know that their old man is a straight up coldly immoral monster that sanctions the slaughter of girls just like Golda and Yentl. I wonder if el Jefé told the Obama daughters that “Israel has the right to defend itself even when that Israeli defense is wanton and callous genocide.”
America is become a tedious and cavalier wasteland of self-satisfied cowards. Cowards that hide behind a banal canard such as “Israel has the right to defend itself.”
Hamas demands that Israel lift the blockade on Gaza that has existed for years. Hamas’ request is wholly legitimate. Israel’s response is to rain white phosphorus death on Gaza. Bomb Palestinian schools, hospitals, homes, playgrounds, neighborhoods, and any thing human or otherwise that moves.
“Israel has the right to defend itself.”
The global community stands condemned and shamefully so for standing on the sidelines watching Israel commit flagrant war crimes on Gaza’s people. Egregious crimes against humanity. The murder of women, children, and families.
Israel now has the right to be dragged kicking and screaming “you’re all aunty Semites” to the International Criminal Court at the Hague.
I fully understand that will not now nor ever happen. The global community is that feckless. American government is that feckless.
Welcome to our brave new world of emasculate cowardice. Justice is a notion for a bygone era and these are the days of a global war of terrorism that finds nation/states are the single biggest purveyors of murderous terrorism.
