The Truth: Israel And Gaza
It was on the occasion of the three-week Israeli invasion of Gaza in January 2009 that I invoked Sonny Corleone’s famous warning to Carlo: “If you touch my sister again, I’ll kill you.”
Some people never learn . . .

Melanie Phillips has published a very informative, must-read post that tells the truth about what is going on in the Gaza Theater Of Operations.
Two samples [tip of the fedora to Memeorandum]:
- …Hamas lies that a child killed by its own rocket was killed by Israel
Last Friday, a number of papers along with outlets such as CNN in the US published prominent footage of the Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Kanil weeping over the body cradled in his arms of a dead child, Mahmoud Sadallah, who Hamas claimed had been killed in an Israeli air strike. Blogger Elder of Zyon smelled a rat and, piecing together convincing circumstantial evidence, had concluded by this morning that the child was almost certainly not killed by an Israeli strike – not least because on Friday morning when the child died the Israelis had paused their bombing missions to allow for cease-fire talks in Gaza to proceed — but by a Hamas missile that was fired at Israel but had fallen short in Gaza. Now experts from the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights who visited the site on Saturday have said they believe that the explosion that killed Mahmoud Sadallah was indeed caused by a Palestinian rocket.
Just how prominent do you reckon the apologies on CNN and in the British media for this sloppy and incompetent reporting/malicious war libel of Israel will be?
- Israel is feeding the hand that bites it
Unprecedentedly for a country at war, Israel continues to supply food, gas and medical supplies to its enemies in Gaza for humanitarian reasons. Would any other country in the world keep the supply route open to people who are firing thousands of rockets to murder its people and are threatening to turn themselves into human bombs to kill its soldiers and civilians, so that they can continue to do so?
As we’ve come to expect, the supposed freedom-loving nations of The West are not conducting themselves with any glory in their reactions to Israel defending itself against those who want to annihilate her. I won’t bore you with Barack Hussein Obama’s pablum puking [we'll be getting more than our share of that over the next four years], but here is a sample Mrs. Phillips provides from Once-Great Britain:
- And now for some news from civilised Britain
On BBC Radio’s Any Questions on Friday evening, audience questioner Stephen Bedford asked:
‘Despite all the foreign aid and support, Israel has spectacularly failed to get on with its neighbours. Does Israel deserve a future?’
So with Israel having faced existential attack from the Arab and Muslim world for the six decades of its existence, and having been under intensive rocket, missile and human bomb attack from them for more than a decade, the BBC Any Questions production team selected as the audience question to launch its discussion of the Gaza war whether Israel actually deserved to exist at all.
Don’t kid yourself that David Cameron or his fellow wet Eaton Tories think any differently — they’d are just more subtle than the [pedophile-tolerating???] Leftists at the BBC.
Could This Be One Explanation?
One Final Word: Any Westerner who is opposed to the people of Israel defending themselves against those who would see all of Israel destroyed utterly, is a traitor to Good and a servant of Evil…and suicidal.
God Bless Israel.
