Only in Israel, and Only in America

Only in Israel -- a supposed democracy -- will things like this happen with impunity, and only in America will everyone pretend that nothing whatsoever is amiss.

First, an incident with the IDF.
A 10-year-old boy was subjected to physical abuse amounting to torture for 2.5 hours by Israeli soldiers who stormed his family’s shop on 11 June, seeking information on the location of a handgun. The boy was repeatedly beaten, slapped and punched in the head and stomach, forced to hold a stress position for half and hour, and threatened. He was deeply shocked and lost two molar teeth as a result of the assault.
These soldiers terrorized this ten year old boy and his family and smashed the house up with hammers.

But Israel is even worse than that. Israel has the settlers. Look how they tortured and killed this little Palestinian boy. He looks to be about eight years old.

I'm sorry to shock you. Perhaps I should have warned you about the horrible picture. I notice that people on the web often do that as a courtesy.

But I also suppose I think that's a bad idea. This is a little boy here who has been tortured and murdered by some crazy Israeli settlers, and I think you should see what they did to him. I don't want you to avert your gaze.

Did this boy's mother and father get to avert their gaze from their beautiful son's tortured body? No. And not only that, they get to live with the agony of losing their child in such a horrific, unjust way and carry on knowing that nothing will happen to the people who did this.

That's right. These murderous thugs have been doing things like this for decades, and they will keep right on doing it. And do you know why? Because we keep averting our eyes. We keep not noticing. And we keep sending money over to Israel, billions of dollars a year, and politely look away and hold our tongues while they murder little children, among others. It stays in the dark, and the media covers it up just so.

And even in Israel they don't know what to do about these people, they're so out of control. But the answer is to expose them to the world. Let the whole world see what happens in Israel, and we shall have a verdict about whether or not it is just.
"This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God." John 3:19-21
