Video of Hamas Missile Strike
The MSM loves to point to the difference in Palestinian casualties vs. Israeli’s killed and wounded in Israel’s effort to eliminate the Hamas threat to its citizens in the south. The latest figures I’ve seen claim more than 680 Palestinian dead while the Israelis have lost 10 killed in the violence.
The intent of course, is to imply the Hamas threat to Israel is minute, maybe even virtually non-existent. Here’s a quote from a Richard Falk article on the Huffington post that plainly states what the MSM propaganda implies.
…some six months ago when an Egyptian arranged truce produced an effective ceasefire that cut Israeli casualties to zero despite the cross-border periodic firing of homemade rockets that fell harmlessly* on nearby Israeli territory…
Now, Mr. Falk has lots of fancy degrees from lots of fancy schools, but I wonder how many times he’s had to flee to a bomb shelter when the air raid sirens sound, contemplating whether he’ll make it before an explosion that will shred him to pieces.
Tell me, Mr. Falk, how many of a country’s citizens must die before military action is justified in your eyes? If one citizen is killed, is that enough? Or do you have some other arbitrary number in mind? Perhaps 10, 20, 50, 100, or maybe military isn’t justified until Israel loses 1000 citizens.
It’s easy to place such arbitrary demands on others when he’s never been in the line of fire. I wonder, if Mr. Falk lived with this threat every day, if he’d been born in a place where just miles away are 1.5 million people whose self-stated purpose in life was the destruction of his entire race, would he feel differently.
Well, Mr. Falk, what if you were the man in this video? How do you think he feels about your ridiculous notion that Israel has no right to protect him because he escaped death by mere seconds?
I’ll just bet this guy is glad Israel is working to destroy Hamas’ military capability.
It should also be noted that Falk is also one of those highly educated nit wits that espouses US government involvement in the 9/11 attacks. Toward the end of this article which calls on the Bush administration to use restraint in responding to the attack on our country that claimed some 3000 lives, Falk states that terrorism stems from American technological dominance that leaves people with two choices, subjugation and poverty or “vindictive violence.” In other words, it’s America’s fault.
This defense of terrorism and terrorists isn’t a new fad with Falk. In 1973, he defended Karleton Armstrong who killed a University of Wisconsin researcher when he bombed the Army Math Research Center at UW-Madison.
So, Mr. Falk, why don’t you spend a little time in Sderot or Ashkelon and see if that doesn’t enlighten you? It’s easy to criticize those who seek to defend themselves from radical zealots who seek only the eradication of Israel and her people when you’ve never walked in their shoes. Let the missiles fly into your neighborhood, putting your family at risk and tell me then how many Israeli’s must die before taking action against Hamas.
