An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Sadly, so does a large chunk of the rest of the world. It doesn’t matter that they brought this on themselves. It doesn’t matter that there was no REAL cease fire. As long as the Israelis are portrayed as the ‘bad guys’, it’s just peachy. WRONG….but peachy.
Public opinion in Egypt is more likely to side with Hizballah than with President Mubarak. Jordanian citizens are more likely to support Hamas than blame it for causing the war. The 2008 Annual Arab Public Opinion Poll, conducted by Shibley Telhami of the University of Maryland, shows clearly that most Egyptians and Jordanians blame the more moderate Palestinian Authority for the “situation in Gaza,” and more of them identify with Hamas than with the more moderate Fatah.
Ok, so, just where are the ‘moderate’ Muslims? I keep hearing there are some, but I never see any indication they actually exist! Perhaps this is just one more fabrication the Bush Administration wanted to perpetrate on the American people, and the world?
And along comes a MOONBAT, claiming to want to help the oppressed folks. Well, the anti-semitism runs deep in that family! I suppose she is not aware that the Israelis are providing medical aid to the civilians? Guess not. Would it matter if she did know? Probably not.
In addition to opening crossings to allow medical supplies to Gaza, Israel has brought dozens of Gaza residents to Israel for treatment. Egyptian officials said Monday that they had offered to treat those wounded in IAF strikes as well, but that Hamas had prevented the transfer of patients to Egyptian hospitals.
Normally, I honestly don’t wish ill on anyone, but perhaps the Israeli Navy should have done a bit more damage?
The enemy here is NOT the Israelis. The enemy of the Palestinians people is their own so called leadership. They may have thought that all their problems would go away if they elected radicals to positions of power. What they got was just the opposite. (Hmm…..why does that make me think of a our own current (as of Jan 20, 2009) situtation?)
I’d really like to know why the Israelis would even consider a cease fire with the raving lunatics in Gaza. Why should they? No….I say pound the crap out of them until they SCREAM for peace. Enough! The Israelis have a right to defend themselves against all threats to their soveignty. Allow the IDF to do their job! Keep the freakin’ political suck ups OUT of it!
