I've heard from several of you regarding my recent "murderous Israel" post, comments were split between good post/bad post. And of course though I appreciate the e-mail contact through this site, I'd prefer that you sign in and post so that your comments can be viewed and discussed by all.
One comment took me to task for referring to the Israeli government as murderers, suggesting that I consult a dictionary before using "big words." My response? "You idiot, I don't need no stinkin' dictionary!"
Read up on what the fucking autopsy reports have found — all of the humanitarians were unarmed — does any of this sound familiar? This is the MO of an overzealous army: shoot first and ask questions later. (MO, for those of you without a dictionary, is short for 'mode of operation' or more accurately, from the latin modus operandi. You're welcome.) Five of the nine men shot and killed in cold blood were shot in the head — does this get your attention? How about the 19 year-old American who was shot 5 times all at very close range — once in the head from a distance of 1 to 8 inches away! Sounds more like execution-style killings. Where is your outrage now? Now take another look at one of the definitions for murder (as a verb) from dictionary.com: to kill or slaughter inhumanly or barbarously. It can't be any more clear that the disproportionate actions taken by the Israeli government were murderous crimes against humanity and that their leadership should be held accountable on such grounds. And that is coming. (What makes something like this any different than when a US army soldier goes berserk and kills a family of Iraqis or Afghans? We have held trials and brought out the facts and they have gone to jail for committing heinous crimes. Same thing here and the outcome should be no less.)
The United States has turned a blind eye to the actions of the Israeli government far too long and it must change. We must stop allowing the strong Jewish lobby in this country to influence our foreign policy — classic "tail wagging the dog" syndrome. It is no wonder that so many people around the world are sick and tired of the 'poor, pitiful me' cry we hear from Jews whenever actions of their people or the Israeli government are questioned. Please, we know there was a holocaust, and it was horrific that so many people met their demise at the hands of murderous, barbaric people — now read that back and ask why it is acceptable in this day and age for that to happen again.
My plea, again, is for more people to wake up.
