The international community’s double standard

/
173 views

When Jews shoot at Palestinians in defense against Palestinians who throw lethal stones at Jews in order to satisfy their hunger for Jewish blood and sinew, there is grotesque international outrage. Because, let’s face it, as far as the international community is concerned, a Jew’s life has no value. But when a Palestinian shoots at another Palestinian when no provocation exists, the international community hides their heads in the sand. Let’s face it. Arabs are scary people and do not take well to criticism, so its best to just ignore their barbaric behavior and continue to diaper and bottle-feed them.

Images that Shock

Google Earth helps Muslims kill Jews. From Images that Shock: The Guardian has filmed rare scenes inside Hamas-controlled Gaza – Hamas beating up Fatah dissenters, Palestinian doctors forced by their Fatah paymasters to go on strike or forfeit their salaries, the militants who log on to Google Earth to search for Israeli targets for their Kassam rockets. What these films show is not a Gazan population turning against the gunmen who took the enclave over by force in June, but its opposite – the hatred that Mahmoud Abbas is incurring among his own people. Expectations for the forthcoming peace conference

Hamas has admitted that it has fired on Fatah demonstrators in Gaza because they threw stones at them. Seems like some Hamas members asked Reginald Denny if throwing stones could be painful. Thanks to Colin for sending in this excellent mirror of the hypocrisy embedded in the palestinian Muslim culture. The moral of the story? Jews can’t defend themselves when Muslims throw stones at them, but Muslims *can* defend themselves when other Muslims throw stones at them. From Reuters: Hamas security men opened fire after protesters hurled rocks at them in the Gaza Strip on Friday [Aug 24, 2007] in

h/t Daily Alert, from When the Lights Went Out in Gaza: Last Friday, the lights went out in Gaza because the electric bill wasn’t being paid. The European Union which, for humanitarian reasons, is financing the Palestinian enclave’s power supply, suddenly refused to continue the subsidy because of allegations that Gaza’s government – run by the Islamist party Hamas – was about to tax electricity to bolster its armed militants. On Wednesday, the lights were coming back on in Gaza after Ismael Haniyeh, Prime Minister of Gaza’s government, assured the EU that electricity funds were being properly utilized.The Palestinians living

From As Mortar Shells Fall, Goods Go to Gaza: Alongside the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the gritty business of coexistence marches on. Since the Islamic militants of Hamas took over the Gaza Strip, Israel has kept the main commercial crossing point at Karni shuttered. Hamas seeks Israel’s destruction, making border crossing etiquette more precarious than elsewhere. On Wednesday, between mortar attacks by Hamas and other militants, about 20 truckloads of milk products, meat, medicines and eggs passed from Israel into Gaza, ordered by Palestinian merchants from Israeli suppliers, relying on contacts built up over years. At the fuel depot at Nahal Oz,

Hamas’ Hidden Economy

From Hamas’ Hidden Economy: Military insurrections cost money. To take over Gaza last month, Hamas had to pay salaries, procure weapons, manufacture rockets, buy help from local crime families, bribe opponents, print leaflets and banners, produce media propaganda and even order up Hamas hats and bandanas. How did Hamas fund the Gaza coup? In the face of international sanctions, Hamas has successfully transferred funds into the West Bank and Gaza through its charity committees and social service organizations. Mixing funds across its political, charitable and militant wings, Hamas supports its Executive Force militia and Izzidin al-Qassam Brigade terror cells under
