Israel’s Wanton Killing of Children Continues

Click on the image for a white background


Sabra and Shatila, Jenin, Qana, Gaza and the West Bank in general, and now Qana again. At least 54 people were killed during the recent Israeli airstrike on Qana, southern Lebanon, over half of them children. This is nothing new. The Israeli army has been killing children for years and years. They’ve shot children at close range, and bombed houses where they knew there were children, even small babies.

Israel apologizes and appears to be sorry, but they say they will keep doing what they’re doing. Their words are clearly dishonest and their apology not worth shit. Their record exposes them ruthlessly. So, what’s new this time?

Well, one thing is that the world seems totally fed up with them and their actions this time. Usually representatives for the Israeli government are allowed to speak their lies, their veiled propaganda virtually unopposed, but now the outrage is mounting, and journalists are finally conducting aggressive interviews, and those very representatives seem totally baffled that at least the media is finally asking the hard questions, is holding them to account, at least to a point. Is this how it always will be, that the blood of the innocent is the price needed for people to see the truth?

The Israel apologists are still around, though. There’s no lack of them, anywhere, with the most insane attempts at obscuring the issue. In my eyes they are no better than the child murderers and molesters themselves, and should be confronted at every turn. Yes, that includes jews outside Israel, defending the Israeli government and its criminal, horrible actions.

My fear is that when the dust settles and time passes, the world will forget AGAIN.

Comparing Olmert and bunch to nazi death camps soldiers is quite valid, in my opinion.

Of course it is a valid comparison - the Nazi's were just human like the rest of us, so it isn't at all surprising that humans would do the same thing again.
