Israel Kills Two Aid Workers – Don’t Feed the Palestinians

You know, some of those Palestinians are Christians.

Regardless of your nationality, there is such a thing as human rights, and it is high time that we level the same expectations on Israel that we do the Palestinians.

HT for the video.

Israel is defending herself to the UN and blaming the aid workers.

To be fair, there are videos which show the aid workers attacking the well-armed men who board their boat:

Considering they were being invaded….

So, do we give Israel a free pass, or do we demand accountability? Can we step back and look at Israel’s actions without the blinders of religion and recent theology on?  Can we see that starving a people is a heinous act and must be account for? Do we not see how Israel’s actions put more American soldiers in harm’s way?

  1. You do realize that some of these ships are taking in weapons to attack Israel, right? What do you think is a fair way to deny them weapons in order to protect the Israeli lives? These are indeed people who need to eat… and get medicines, etc. But the vast majority HATE Israel, vow to push her into the sea (read: wipe out), and fire missles into her towns regularly. This is not just a group of hungry people. This is an arch enemy. They will kill at will if they could. Israel is trying to prevent them from having the tools they need to do it. Let's be fair and honest, here. I was explaining this news article to our teenagers… and gave an analogy of our hometown, and one outskirt strip firing missles at will into our little hometown. We would never know when we were to be next to get hit. This is a real problem. A real enemy. And a huge threat. If we were in their shoes… we might see things differently. Have the Palestinians quit firing missles? Have they recanted on their promise to push Israel into the sea and take over the whole land and Jerusalem? You can not play games with this kind of hatred. The Palestinians are playing for keeps. Israel has restrained herself to not bomb them out of there yet. (Well, the leaders of the world have put on the peer pressure to make Israel stay her hand for a season.) Just go and find their speeches and read a few… and you will see that they would block ALL “humanitarian aid” to any Jew if only they could.
