Israel oversteps its bounds, part 4645718134
This morning, Israel attacked an aid convoy on international waters. They boarded the convoy using helicopters and warships and when they met resistance, they killed 19 civilian people and injured upwards to 60 others. On international waters. The way I see it, in this case Israel is no better than the modern day pirates on the coast of Africa. They have once again stepped over the line and decided that they are above international laws, regulations and human rights. For the umpteenth time. It’s tiresome to see them get away with it over and over just because they have the United States of America at their heel at each and every turn. As an American, I would feel ashamed that my government is aiding a terrorist nation. Pathetic.
I’ve read through the reports in the Swedish press as well as the ones from CNN and Al-Jazeera. It’s interesting and a bit scary to see the differences in reporting. On CNN, it’s 10 people dead. On Al-Jazeera and in Sweden, it’s 19 dead, 60 injured. Go figure. Count on the US media to give a “nuanced” account. Pathetic.
I’m just tired that Israel keeps getting away with abominable acts like these. All the time, over and over. And then at the end of the day, they still have that wall that’s one of the biggest jokes on human rights in history. Especially in light of history. We’re supposed to learn from it. Israel clearly doesn’t learn from history, yet they keep playing the Holocaust Sympathy Card (that’s trademarked by the Jews, I believe) all the time. Pathetic.
What the US government does in this situation will be interesting, but I don’t expect anything groundbreaking. Obama, Biden or Clinton will say that it’s an unfortunate situation, bla bla bla yada yada yada. The usual. No repercussions. Israel will be able to keep taking a huge dump on the whole Middle-East and the international community as a whole and they will keep getting away with it. Pathetic.
I’ve never liked Israel, the state, and I probably never will. They break so many international laws over and over, yet continue to be coddled with. It’s goddamn pathetic.
