Not that I expected anything different, but look at the lame, lame words Condi uses to stop those naughty Israelis. Absolutely pathetic. She is a disgrace.
CAIRO, March 4 — Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Monday she planned to tell Israeli officials to ease the humanitarian suffering in the Gaza Strip and avoid attacks that might kill civilians, but she repeatedly refused to say whether she supported a cease-fire.
Oh yes, she ‘plans’ to tell them to ‘ease’ the suffering and ‘avoid’ attacks that ‘might kill civilians’, but she refused to support a cease-fire. That means nothing. How could it be more toothless? Let’s see.
“Call it what you will, we want the violence to stop,” Rice told reporters traveling with her as she headed to the region during some of the worst Israeli-Palestinian violence in years. She asserted that Hamas, which controls Gaza, is trying to disrupt the nascent peace process the Bush administration launched last year in Annapolis.
“Call it what you will” she says! She will not call it what it is, because it’s a massacre being committed by her handlers! If she were to call it what it IS, she would be in big trouble. So the reporters can say it, but Condi cannot. It can all be blamed on Hamas, you see. If it weren’t for Hamas, Condi would be getting ready to accept her Nobel Peace Prize. They have ruined everything, those bastards.
“First and foremost, Hamas needs to stop firing rockets into Israeli cities,” Rice said. At the same time, she said, “Israelis have to be very concerned about the innocent people in Gaza who were caught in this crossfire, and the Israelis need to be very concerned about the humanitarian situation. Those are discussions we’re going to have.”
See? Here’s the little double standard. Hamas has to ’stop firing rockets’, but Israel only need be ‘very concerned’. Are those two things the same? Why no, they are not. Evidently, as long as Israel says it is ‘very concerned’, they may continue to murder the Palestinians, and if Hamas doesn’t stop the rockets, they will deserve everything that happens to them. That’s what passes for logic and leadership and diplomacy in this morally depraved world we live in. Read the whole thing. Behold the pathetic, mewling, sycophant trying to appease her masters.
Who is the master here? Isn’t it so obvious that Israel will do whatever Israel wants, and the US Secretary of State, the wretched liar Condoleeza Rice, has no authority what-so-ever to tell them otherwise? Anyone who can’t see this is blind.
UPDATE: After reading this little expose on how Bush and Condi helped conceive this current catastrophe with the assistance of their evil and stupid Fatah minions, it becomes even clearer why she has no authority at all. The Israelis probably tell her behind close doors, “It’s your fault! Go home! We’ll do what we want!” They will wait ever so patiently for her two day useless visit to end, and then they will go right back to whatever murderous plans they have on the table. She should have saved the US taxpayers the money it cost us to fly her over there for nothing!
There is no one more hated among Hamas members than Muhammad Dahlan, long Fatah’s resident strongman in Gaza. Dahlan, who most recently served as Abbas’s national-security adviser, has spent more than a decade battling Hamas. Dahlan insists that abu Dan was tortured without his knowledge, but the video is proof that his followers’ methods can be brutal.
Bush has met Dahlan on at least three occasions. After talks at the White House in July 2003, Bush publicly praised Dahlan as “a good, solid leader.” In private, say multiple Israeli and American officials, the U.S. president described him as “our guy.”
...Vanity Fair has obtained confidential documents, since corroborated by sources in the U.S. and Palestine, which lay bare a covert initiative, approved by Bush and implemented by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Deputy National Security Adviser Elliott Abrams, to provoke a Palestinian civil war. The plan was for forces led by Dahlan, and armed with new weapons supplied at America’s behest, to give Fatah the muscle it needed to remove the democratically elected Hamas-led government from power. (The State Department declined to comment.)
But the secret plan backfired, resulting in a further setback for American foreign policy under Bush. Instead of driving its enemies out of power, the U.S.-backed Fatah fighters inadvertently provoked Hamas to seize total control of Gaza.
