Israel has pretty much declared it is sick and tired being the target of hate by Muslim terrorists and their enablers. In a battle against the world propaganda machine, Israel finds itself as David against the Goliath of the American and UN ministries of disinformation. The U.N. has a history of blaming Israel for defending itself and had to get used to being mistreated by every Democrat leaders since the assassination of Robert Kennedy by a Palestinian.
Obama’s contempt for Israel
Though admitting that Israel has the right to defend itself the Obama White House is doing all it can to deny the Jewish state the ability. Obama’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Libya and Syria, his non-involvement in the rise of the Islamic State and his support of al Qaeda terrorists in Syria have only emboldened the enemies of Israel. Hamas was planning a major action against the Jewish state believing that the Grand Mufti of the Great Satan would forbid the Jews from fighting back. It didn’t work.
Israel stood up against the call for a cease fire by both Barack Obama and John Kerry because she was effectively fighting back against terrorists. Israeli forces were destroying launch sites and the tunnel systems built by Palestinians for the purpose of invading Israel and killing Jewish residents. Obama was surprised and humiliated by Israel’s rejection of the one-sided, Muslim-appeasing cease fire proposal presented by Secretary Kerry. It seems the American president underestimated the unity of the Israeli public behind the war effort. Israel will no doubt be punished in the near future by the Public Housing Muslim from Kenya because the One doesn’t like opposition, least of all when it has been declared before the entire world.
The only reason Obama and Kerry called for a cease fire was because Israel was winning. The early damage to Hamas was of a strategic nature, cutting off its electricity, supply routes and sea ports. Hamas will have a difficult time recovering from the loss of supplies and resources.
The invaluable United Nations
The UN, in its strategic brilliance, has designated public schools to be safe bomb shelters for children and civilians. In fact, the world assembly is so humanitarian it even returned the weapons stored in these buildings to Hamas! It’s no secret that Muslims will use Mosques, Hospitals and Schools as weapons caches. They have also famously used women and children as human shields.
During its operations, Israeli forces have been giving the civilian Muslim population ample warning before striking a known target. The latest incidents in which civilians were killed or injured undoubtedly involve women and children literally held in place by Muslim men. Knowing they would leave the area upon news of a warning from Israeli forces, brave Muslim fighters lock these useful martyrs in the announced target area, confident that the world media will condemn Israel for their death. Of course the UN will look the other way or risk finding its own observers among the next tally of martyrs.
Israel will have to go it alone, understanding it has the support of the majority of its own citizens and sensible people of the world.
