The world is paying attention to Israel's behavior, and the world doesn't like it. Unofficially, the Gaza offensive has backfired spectacularly on Israel. The psychopathic personality, having no conscience, cannot imagine how normal people will react to the carnage he envisaged, the means he used to justify his end. So Israel remains frustrated that the world does not understand why it "had" to do these things. But of course, most of the world are not psychopaths, so there you have the disconnect. Of course, officially it's still all Hamas' fault.
A person without imagination, like Barak (his election slogan: "Not a Nice Guy, but a Leader") cannot imagine how decent people around the world react to actions like the killing of whole extended families, the destruction of houses over the heads of their inhabitants, the rows of boys and girls in white shrouds ready for burial, the reports about people bleeding to death over days because ambulances are not allowed to reach them, the killing of doctors and medics on their way to save lives, the killing of UN drivers bringing in food. The pictures of the hospitals, with the dead, the dying and the injured lying together on the floor for lack of space, have shocked the world. No argument has any force next to an image of a wounded little girl lying on the floor, twisting with pain and crying out: "Mama! Mama!"In general, Israel consistently overestimates how much non-Jews care about Israel. Jewish people comprise 0.0025% of the world's population, so why does everything have to revolve around Israel? At what point does the world tell Israel to sit down and STFU? Do we wait for Israel to attack Iran, or a European capital, and start WW III? Because they are likely to do such a thing. Here's an Israeli professor bragging last Friday that Israel could destroy every European capital to avenge the holocaust! You know, all this time I thought the Holocaust (TM) has already been paid for. Why does it still need to be avenged? What is up with these threats against Europe?
OK then. Thanks for being honest. Greg Bacon has more here.
“We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets of our air force.”
Creveld, a professor of military history at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, pointed out that “collective deportation” was Israel’s only meaningful strategy towards the Palestinian people.
“The Palestinians should all be deported. The people who strive for this (the Israeli government) are waiting only for the right man and the right time. Two years ago, only 7 or 8 per cent of Israelis were of the opinion that this would be the best solution, two months ago it was 33 per cent, and now, according to a Gallup poll, the figure is 44 percent.”
...Asked if he was worried about Israel becoming a rogue state if it carried out a genocidal deportation against Palestinians, Creveld quoted former Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Dayan who said “Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother.”
Creveld argued that Israel wouldn’t care much about becoming a rogue state.
“Our armed forces are not the thirtieth strongest in the world, but rather the second or third. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that this will happen before Israel goes under.”
Not to mention that Bibi just gave an interview to the WSJ in which he said, more or less, that when it comes to Iran, the ends justify the means.
While you ponder that, don't miss the mysterious Blackjack slideshow on Telegraph UK.
And don't miss Christopher Story's latest installment on the financial corruption hitting Mach speed, and Tom Heneghan's version of the same, and ask yourself, just WTF is going on? And at what point does this stop? Before it's too late, or after? Isn't it already too late for so many people? Haven't we already seen enough? Who needs to see more? Why is that? Aren't these beautiful Palestinian babies dead enough, or do we need to see dead Iranian and American and European babies before we do something about Israel? Why?
