Israel Gives Medicine. Arabs Load Explosives. Give Back!

13 02 2009

medbomb1

This is NOT a case of ‘giving someone a dose of their own medicine.’

JerusalemPost sez:

Medicine bottles, transferred to the Gaza Strip as humanitarian aid by Israel, were used by Hamas as grenades against IDF troops during Operation Cast Lead. The medicine bottles were filled with explosives, holes were drilled in the caps, and fuses were installed. Once Hamas fighters lit the fuses, they had several seconds to throw the grenades at soldiers. The IDF also found small explosive devices that used medical syringes to hold their fuses.

UPDATE: Flashback…Hamas dresses up as doctors and nurses and fights from hospitals





If Bush Is Obama, Who Does Obama Get To Be?

13 01 2009

The worst of what I feared about an Obama administration has already been brought to me in Bush’s flailing last days.  Socialism, huge expenditures during a recession that will lead to inflation, and complete abandonment of Israel and the greater war against radical Islam, has been capped off by the US abstaining in a UN vote which calls for a cease fire by Israel.

UPDATE: As Tigerhawk points out, Canada stood alone before a United Nations human rights council yesterday, the only one among 47 nations to oppose a motion condemning the Israeli military offensive in Gaza.

The only hope is that now that Israel is alone and America is waffling, maybe she’ll stand on her own and ruthlessly defeat her enemies.  Maybe now she’ll realize she can’t win fans anyways, and that America’s defensive umbrella is coming apart from strong winds.

So when news comes that Obama is going to talk to Hamas, it hardly phases fazes (sheesh!) me.  Especially when, as Creeping Sharia points out, Obama’s team has been talking with Hamas for quite some time.

The real worry, is that if Bush has gone this far to the left, what will happen to an already extremely liberal, Barack Obama.





Democracy In Action

12 01 2009

I was a good American today, well now it’s yesterday but still…I was good. Got my, “right to assemble” on for realz, though I must say some of my compatriots nearly violated the, “peaceful” contingent which merits the right.   And then I capped it off with some freedom of religion, freedom of speech and now I’m exhibiting a little freedom of the press…or something of the sort.

Unfortunately, much of the democracy I saw today yesterday was of the twisted sort that elected a terrorist, genocidal regime.

I went down to the Minneapolis J.C.C. to attend a rally for Israel, something I’ve never really done.  I have a lot of happy memories of that place from my teen years when I was involved with Jewish youth group leadership.

There was a good chance a few family members might be there too.  Now, explaining their support for Israel is a very tricky thing because they have to keep goose-stepping the liberal line.  But I am related to a few outgoing/activist-types and this wasn’t a march through downtown, uptown or dinkytown.  It was a poorly publicized, rally at a local Jewish community center, in the heart of the suburb of St. Louis Park, a city which is so well known for being a Jewish part of town, it’s called St. Jewish Park.

As a Jew who supports Israel and doesn’t have to twist my brain into pretzels to explain her rights while hating the most pro-Israel President ever, I knew I had to go.  The Jews I know who say they love Israel, still reflexively rely on moral relativism on all issues and strict adherence to their religion, Liberalism.  This religious devotion, or passion, must be preserved all at times, usually coming out in the form of:

I love Israel, BUT…

  • “It’s the poverty of Gaza that makes them hate life and love death”
  • “It’s dire and hopeless so they blow up at dance clubs”
  • “US aid to Israel is much higher, they have tanks and Palestinians have stones. “
  • “If America gave Palestine more equally, it would be better”
  • “Israel has been disproportionate aka, not numerically egalitarian, in their response”
  • “Palestinians living in desperate conditions aren’t all extremists, but what would you do?”
  • “Violence begets violence.  Israel has been extremely tough on them, and makes more terrorists when someone’s house is bombed”

Turns out, it’s a good thing my relatives didn’t infuse themselves in the realm of the Palestinians at this protest.  It could seriously have unraveled their whole psyches.

At this point, I’m going to, um interrupt…myself, and apologize for not bringing my camera, it’s totally unacceptable.  I just foolishly didn’t foresee the opposition.

It must be interesting from the Palestinian’s perspective to see Jews quietly and meekly filing into a building when they’ve built them up to be maniacal war criminals.  I was one of a few, if not the only, pro-Israel person who went anywhere near them.  It’s nerve-racking to consider what their mood might have been if a few more people had engaged them.  They were already chanting racist slurs and calling for genocide while ironically claiming the same is being done to them.  When Jews came and went, it was quiet and quick.  Eyes were diverted.  A few flashed peace signs.  Basically they said, “PLEASE DON’T F#(%*** HURT US.”

Jews are smart people.

Palestinians who had flooded the JCC’s parking lot, left to horns blaring, loud chanting, flag waiving and overall, warm toastiness.

Important:

How dare these people invoke the words, “holocaust” and “genocide?”

For goodness sakes, the UN doesn’t think Darfur is genocide.  And really, mustn’t one be an anti-Semite even if subconsciously, for rubbing German associations in Jews’ faces?  I mean come on!  It’s like so not even proportionate!

Lastly, and to disprove the viablity of those choice words…

While mingling at the get-together, I confirmed with several Palestinians (even some of the ones who chanted “kill all the Jews”) that Israel is:

  • A terror state
  • a vicious military power
  • capable of destroying the whole region with bombs
  • a racist nation against Arabs and Muslims
  • gleeful at the sight of dead Palestinian children
  • a rogue nation who does not care what the world thinks
  • willing to break International law and even uses nuclear bombs to attack Palestinians

Ok, so if Israel is those things, then why didn’t any partakers in liberty have an answer for me when I asked why there was a single living soul left in Gaza if Israelis are such genocidal murderers.

Some of them even told me how long they think it might take if Israel were to completely annihilate Palestinian territories.

About 4 minutes.

Right.

This is no genocide.

This is no holocaust.

Israel obviously tries to minimize civilian casualties at all expenses.

Palestinians and Muslim fighters the world over, try to maximize them.

On the way out, a few “human rights” protesters told me, “it’s coming.”

I wish I could have said, “we’re ready.”





Palestinian Protesters Make SF Look Like 3rd World Dump

4 01 2009

Vodpod videos no longer available.

As you notice the fashionable “peace scarves,” consider that the Muslim Brotherhood has now called for “maximum Jihad” and that a local Somali friend just told me that he knows of Minneapolis Somalis headed to, “Palestine” to meet their maker.





JewTube To Show Depravity Of Palestinians. Will YouTube Censor As Usual?

30 12 2008

From Newsbusters

In an obvious attempt to counter the typically anti-Israeli sentiment prevalent throughout the international media whenever Israel defends itself, the Israel Defense Forces launched its own YouTube channel Monday.

As most impartial Americans are aware, old and new media were used against Israel in 2006 to foment international criticism of its attacks on Lebanon not the least of which was a Reuters photographer caught doctoring pictures.

With this in mind, as reported by the Jerusalem Post Tuesday, the IDF plans on being much more proactive this time in making the international community completely aware of what’s really going on with Israel’s recent military response in the Gaza Strip (video example embedded right):

Atlas UPDATES: The answer is YES, THEY WILL CENSOR:

What good does it do to show the same Palestinian on 6 or 7 different gurneys and IDF videos of rocket launchers located on kindergarten playgrounds?

Over at Israel Matzav:

YouTube takes down IDF’s most popular videos

Yesterday, the IDF opened a YouTube account.

I just got an email indicating that because YouTube has removed the IDF’s most popular videos, the IDF spokesperson’s office has opened an account at LiveLeak instead.

Noah Pollak has more.

This was apparently too much for YouTube, which moments ago removed several videos from the IDF’s channel, including the most-watched video, which showed a group of Hamas goons being blown up in an air strike as they loaded Katyusha missiles onto a truck. The point of such footage, as if it needed to be said, is not to revel in violence — it is to show the legitimacy of Israeli self-defense.

The rank double-standard that YouTube has applied to Israel is disturbing. YouTube hosts all manner of similar footage — much of it far more gory than the grainy infrared images posted by the IDF — of U.S. air strikes. Why is YouTube capitulating to those who do not wish for Israel to be able to tell its side of the story?

Why am I not surprised?
In any event, LiveLeak is much more willing to post non-PC material, and I will try to do my part to get the word out.
