Israel: stretching it really, really thin

Israel - stretching it thin

For we who support the state of Israel, having long since spent the political capital earned it by those most unfortunate Jews who experienced interment and/or extermination firsthand in WWII Nazi concentration camps, I have but one question:

How much more political credit must we extend and how much more political capital will we LOAN / GIVE to these bastards hell bent on emulating Hitler so that they may continue exterminating Palestinians? Huh?

And, to pour salt in the wounds of the rest of the world, on 1/15/09 the Israelis bomb the shit out of the UN Headquarters in Gaza and say,

"Whoops, so sorry, that was a mistake!" (The Israeli goverment's polite way of saying, "FUCK ALL OF YOU!" - so reminiscent of the Israeli bombing of the USS Liberty in the eastern Mediterranean in 1967.)

(As our new secretary of state Hillary is probably thinking, judging from her senate confirmation statements earlier this week, "Wow! How ballsy! Send 'em some more F-16's and white phosphorus.")

*****

Addendum from the one who should be Secretary of State:

Dennis Kucinich speaking on the floor of the House - “Using US planes, helicopters and munitions to attack a wounded, starved and thirsty civilian population of mostly children trapped in a box called Gaza has become acceptable, perhaps because we have already accepted the deaths of over one million innocent civilians in Iraq in a war based on lies…When we recognize the humanitarian disaster in Gaza, when we come to grips with the reality of suffering on both sides, we may yet find a way to save ourselves.”

(Dada likens concentration camps vs. the Gaza strip to penned chickens vs. "free range" chickens. While "free range" is easier on our consciences, in the end they basically all share the same fate.)

wonderful comparison of penned vs free range ... really brought it all home.

Great work here, Dada!

I liken the Israeli bombing of the U.N. building to their elevated middle finger facing outward in the direction of said U.N. in a nonverbal "F. You!"

You really don't need to use the words, at that point.

Yes! Kucinich should be Sec. of State, he has the word PEACE in his vocabulary.
Now that this situation has reared it;s ugly head in the MIddle East, having Hilary as Sec of State suddenly scares the hell out of me,

She was quick to approve war before, and is aligned w Israel.

I am not in any camp per say, just vehemently opposed to violence, escalation of violence, mass killing of innocent people regardless of what country they are- and that includes our own country as well.
