Israel and Human Rights – Parting Ways

Monday, March 26th, 2012

You know how when you catch a liar in a lie, they overreact and get all angry and hostile? That’s pretty much what the State of Israel has just done.

The United Nations human rights council decided to establish an international investigation into abuses committed in the West Bank settlements. And in response, Israel has severed all ties with that branch of the UN.

Oh, what… afraid that your horrendous, ongoing atrocities will be exposed? Too bad. The world is waking up, no matter how hard you try and hide. (more…)

Israel’s Response: Just Blow Them All Up

Friday, August 26th, 2011

Well, so much for the truce between Israel and Palestine. I guess it was kind of naive to expect it to last long, especially when the Israeli government benefits so much from the perpetuation of war.

Yesterday, Israel’s airstrikes killed 10 people and wounded 30 others, in response to rockets being launched from within Gaza. The rockets from the Gaza side were likely fired in response to Israel’s continued oppression and abuse of the Palestinian people.

Both sides are equally in the wrong, except for one glaring difference: The rockets originating from the Gaza strip were fired from extremist militants whose actions weren’t sanctioned by the government of Palestine. The airstrikes, on the other hand, came from Israel’s modern military arsenal with the full support of the Israeli government.

To think that bombing your enemies helps your cause is pretty asinine. It’s something that might be expected from uneducated fanatic ideologues, like some of the Gaza militants, but not from the government of one of the most advanced nations in the world.

Take the above video, for example. Israeli intelligence tracked down a militant organization living in the large residential complex. So what do they do – send in an elite commando unit to eliminate the threat? No… they just blow up the whole fucking place, full of men, women and children!

Now what kind of bullshit is that? Are these mass murders supposed to be bringing peace? How can any rational person look at these atrocities and not be outraged?

Then again, one could just as easily say the same for the Israeli side. Don’t they have the same right to feel the same way about being bombed?

Of course they do.

But these feelings – the same ones used by extremists to rationalize acts of terror – should not manifest themselves all the way up into the government. Governments should know better, and Israel is no exception.

Israel Bans Boycotts

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

Upon seeing another Israel post, you might be thinking, ‘Oh.. great. He’s ripping on the Jews again.” But my ire is not provoked by people of Jewish faith specifically, but rather, the State of Israel itself.

The government of Israel has perpetrated heinous human rights violations for decades, and want to continue to do so. This is why they just outlawed boycotts against Israeli institutions.

Rather than, say, not incarcerating and starving a few million Palestinians, the Israeli establishment finds it much easier to write laws that stifle any protest.

To heck with free speech if it risks upsetting the status quo! While your at it, why not just declare someone the king of Israel forgo the whole charade of elections?

Israel has clearly gone off the deep end. It’s time for the world to increase the pressure and ramp up economic sanctions. We need to collectively tell Israel ‘We’ve had enough of your nonsense, already.”

WTF? Why is Canada Supporting Israel?

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

At the latest G8 Summit, Prime Minister Stephen Harper stood alone in his refusal of peace negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis on the basis of the 1967 borders, a stance that reaffirms Israel’s own position.

So now, of the 8 big nations, Canada is the most pro-Zionist country of them all? Seriously?

What a bummer. Talk about a blight on Canada’s reputation.

Doesn’t our Conservative government know of the daily atrocities committed by the state of Israel? Haven’t they heard that the Israel-Palestine issue is tantamount to Apartheid?

Surely Harper is aware that pressure from the international community is the only way to end the plight of the Palestinian people, so why does he always take a position that will only prolong their suffering?

As a Canadian, I do not support the actions of Mr. Harper or his Conservatives. And I’m sure, once given a clearer picture of whats going on in the Middle East, most of my fellow citizens would agree.

Thomas to Tackle Israeli PM

Monday, April 18th, 2011

(‘Is that all you got, Benny Boy?)

Famed journalist and Presidential correspondent Helen Thomas is set to spearhead an anti-Israel protest during Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Washington.

Thomas was forced to retire for speaking critically about Israel. Later, defending her position, she stated that “I can call a president of the United States anything in the book, but I can’t touch Israel, which has Jewish-only roads in the West Bank.”

Well versed in the issue, Mrs. Thomas is likely aware of three separate myths of Israeli insecurity, which are:

  • Israel’s existence is threatened by the ever-present possibility of military attack.
  • The personal safety of every Jewish Israeli is threatened daily by the possibility of violent attack.
  • Israel’s existence is threatened by worldwide efforts to delegitimize the Jewish state.

Of course, you probably don’t need to be reminded that speaking out against Israel is not an anti-Semitic action. In fact, many followers of the Jewish faith are against the Zionist State of Israel for their continued human rights violations.

So don’t be afraid to speak out against injustice wherever it rears its ugly head, even when the perpetrators claim to be the victims.
