It’s lost Amid Purposeful Misdirected Condemnations; Hatred and Ignorance is its Base
Davey says; A departure from my usual topic i take a look at what I consider a 70 year old tragedy how many more lives and generations are to be lost in this so called ‘Promised Land’
I am neither Jew or Muslim so my sympathies lie with both and my own equilibrium is affected by the inability for there to be any resolution to this and even ceasefire of hostilities only postpones what seems to have become the inevitable. I am grateful to Allyson Christy for a view from the centre of all this Jerusalem.
The outrage ought be existentially applied to abject hostility amid hypocrisy’s persistent hold upon the globally ignorant, misdirected and anti Semitic views, which are solely directed at, and purposefully against Israel.
At this writing there are demonstrations in London, Paris, Oslo, Amman, Tunisia, Lebanon….waving rabid banners of unjust accusations, vehement with poisonous rant and likening the Jewish State, indeed, Prime Minister Netanyahu, to Hitler.
This is yet one outrage.
Hypocrisy’s markings are historic blemishes with deep scars scattered across the wide-spectrum of Arab and Muslim lands. Atrocities, the most grotesque violations of human rights, underscored by tyrannies, dictators and Islamic extremism, do indeed, lie at the core of strife, madness and elements of a sociopathy, long weighted heavily upon these societies.
Where is the outrage in London, Paris, Oslo….over beheadings, honour killings of girls and women, hangings of homosexuals, killing of Arab Christians, burning of their churches, rampant rape and degradation of females across the 22 Arab nations alone?
To be sure, outrage is scarcely demonstrated at the dragging of bodies, human flesh across the streets of Gaza, and not so long ago portrayed across graphic media images meant to scare and subdue a peoples.
Indeed, Hamas’ and Islamic terror’s positioning civilians as shields and embedding weaponry nucleus(es) at the heart of noncombatant centres which include hospitals, mosques and schools, to the indoctrination of hate in classrooms, praise afforded to suicide bombers, glorifying terrorists, training and arming children to perpetuate that hate and to kill is largely unchallenged in the so-called civilised world. This seems to be so by the global and specific regional powers-that-be.
Where indeed, is the outrage of reason?
Such ongoing violations of international law, of human rights, severing of even remote sanity, and the onset of belligerence which has long fomented with missile and rocket fire perpetrated and aimed specifically against Israel, and for months and years a problematic and dangerous madness continues nearly unabated.
From every point and in-between Israeli borders, the threat and promise of intended annihilation has always loomed.
And the world condemns the small and only Jewish State for amassing an arsenal necessitating its defence and security, and for mounting presently, a campaign of defence against the tirade of rocket onslaught from Gaza, perpetrated time and time again under the power counsel of the Hamas.
Present condemnations are laced with hatred amid vehement cries, which are citing Gazan-Arab deaths and the audacity of shouting foul, that, so far, in comparison, no Israeli deaths are reported.
I recall a death near Haifa reportedly of a heart attack during a wretched siren, to which the world of condemning haters would not once give a thought.
Instead, it is blatant, habitual and a tiresome condemnation over Israel’s artillery and masterful edge today, over just one of her many enemies. One glance at a map, and geography highlights who is not the aggressor and who is instead, threatened amongst a neighbourhood of contemptible haters.
And the neighbourhood is calling for Arab states to intervene and protect inhabitants of Gaza.
And where too, is the outrage and demonstrations over the aggressively cancerous ISIS and similar to aforementioned atrocities, including the training and arming of children to hate, arm, watch and participate in executions and to kill?
Where is outrage? It is misguided, and deliberately so. It is laced with anti-Semitic Western overtures. That is too, an ugly truth, and one apparent in London, Paris, Oslo, Brussels and the list does continue.
An esteemed writer at Arab News, Abdulateef Al-Mulhim, pointedly focused on the relevancy of Arab misdirection and misguidance in an eloquent article dated, 6 October 2012, “Arab Spring and the Israeli Enemy.” Within the context he expounded upon and articulated, “What was the real cost for not recognizing Israel in 1948 and why didn’t the Arab states spend their assets on education, health care and the infrastructures instead of wars?”
His eloquent contemplation dared to further additional ugly truths.”The starvation, the killings and the destruction in these Arab countries are done by the same hands that are supposed to protect and build the unity of these countries and safeguard the people of these countries. So, the question now is that who is the real enemy of the Arab world?”
The Arab world wasted hundreds of billions of dollars and lost tens of thousands of innocent lives fighting Israel, which they considered is their sworn enemy, an enemy whose existence they never recognized.
The Arab world has many enemies and Israel should have been at the bottom of the list.
The real enemies of the Arab world are corruption, lack of good education, lack of good health care, lack of freedom, lack of respect for the human lives and finally, the Arab world had many dictators who used the Arab-Israeli conflict to suppress their own people.
These dictators’ atrocities against their own people are far worse than all the full-scale Arab-Israeli wars.”
So, where is the outrage beyond the condemnation of Israel’s just right to self-defence and security?
A map that went viral across Facebook and perhaps additional Internet sites a few years ago, tells all. The map’s caption should include too, “Enough said.” >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
And nothing has changed except that, since this writing, there are Israeli casualties. Yet, viral anti-Semitic overtures are emerging like vermin in sudden and full view. For therein, lies the nucleus reinforcing condemnations, allegations of ‘war crimes,’ and the gross, unjustified focus on disproportion, and a purposeful geo-political hijacking alone, of such a context in self-defense. – 23 July 2014
There are 22 Arab nations…..and one Jewish nation. It is small in just geo contrast. You are welcome to share my notes are what I post additionally. There was never a nation Palestine. That is merely a coinage, and later hijacked in an expanded propaganda campaign meant to demonise and delegitimise Israel “Arabs, the UN and its organs, and lately the International Court of Justice (ICJ) as well, have repeatedly claimed that the Palestinians are a native people – so much so that almost everyone takes it for granted. The problem is that a stateless Palestinian people is a fabrication. The word Palestine is not even Arabic.12 In a report by His Majesty’s Government in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to the Council of the League of Nations on the administration of Palestine and Trans-Jordan for the year 1938, the British made it clear: Palestine is not a State, it is the name of a geographical area.13 Palestine is a name coined by the Romans around 135 CE from the name of a seagoing Aegean people who settled on the coast of Canaan in antiquity – the Philistines. The name was chosen to replace Judea, as a sign that Jewish sovereignty had been eradicated following the Jewish Revolts against Rome.”
Read Dr. Martin Sherman, Jpost. I include his weekly column on my Timeline. Long, a bit verbose, but his approach is the only one that makes sense. And frankly, Jordan was/is the so-called “Palestine.” Out of the Mandate, it was divided and intended for the Arab population, but later given into the hands of a desert, Hashemite Bedouin ‘king’ as a political reward.
