Nation of Cowards

Nation of Cowards

By John Chuckman
http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39684.htm

September 15, 2014 "ICH" - What else can you fairly call a people who attack a population of refugees confined to a small space surrounded on every side by fences and machine-gun towers, a population with nowhere to run? No, that is not put strongly enough. Not just attack, but use the latest and most ferocious weapons from the American arsenal to slaughter more than 2100 people, including more than 500 children, destroying along the way a major portion of the housing, businesses, and institutions of a poor people.

The definition of a coward is not the traditional military one of a soldier who won’t fight. No, that’s far too simplistic and self-serving. The genuine meaning of the word, the meaning that warrants our full sense of revulsion and contempt, is someone who attacks someone far weaker than themselves. A large man who beats a woman or a child with his fists or a policeman who clubs a handcuffed prisoner – that is the accurate and meaningful definition of the word. And the people of Israel responsible for Operation Protective Edge are as sadly perfect examples of genuine cowards as you can find in the world.

What remarkable courage it takes – outfitted as the IDF is with Kevlar armor, the latest intelligence gadgets, satellites, radios, support of every imaginable kind, and immensely powerful weapons (they even get hot pizzas delivered as they pause in their gruesome work) – to shoot people who cannot run away, are often poorly fed and clothed, and who mostly have no weapons. And the courage of the Israeli pilots who make bombing runs over homes, schools, apartments, and stores from the safety of their supersonic fighters is surely remarkable. They remind me of the American pilots who shot and incinerated countless retreating Iraqi soldiers in the (engineered) First Gulf War while the television broadcasts caught their gleeful shouts of “Wow, it’s just like shooting fish in a barrel!”

Yes, Americans are the only comparable example of Israel’s cowardice, the Americans who literally enable Israel’s savagery but also themselves have given the world the best part of half a century of savagery abroad, the deaths of literally millions of civilians in half a dozen countries – deaths by carpet bombing, napalm, missiles, white phosphorus, various poisons, and the razor-like shards of cluster bombs.

The United States, like Israel, is never called to account for the worst record on the planet of mass killing and destruction. You simply cannot name a contemporary criminal enterprise or a so-called terrorist organization which has a record so steeped in horrors as those two.

Wholesale death inflicted with utter disregard for international law and custom has become standard policy for both countries. Yes, there are always excuses for mass murder, the weasel words such as communists or terrorists or dictators and weapons of mass destruction (Americans ironically being the only people on earth who actually used them, twice, on civilians) – all of them having no more real meaning than Stalin’s chilling wreckers, a word he used to signal his creatures that it was time for a new bloody purge. In some cases those purged were simply people Stalin did not like or of whom he felt jealous, but in most cases of the millions smashed or consigned to hell on earth, the only motive was to terrify a population into submission, and that is exactly what Israel’s motive is for its periodic massacres of Palestinians and Lebanese.

Anyone of moderate intelligence who reads and thinks must know Israel is in no danger from anyone, least of all the Palestinians who have no organized army, no navy, and no air force, not to mention very little of anything else. Israel is armed to the teeth with conventional and non-conventional weapons, it leans back arrogantly into the arms of super-power America and plays the victim in a land it victimizes, and it functions as a garrison state whose major purpose is to hold down and make miserable millions of people who happen not to be Jewish, all the while hoping they will one day pick up and leave. It is absurd to say Israel’s security is endangered by anyone, and especially by the hopeless, lifetime prisoners of Palestine.

Turning a blind eye to the Holocaust three-quarters of a century ago was an unforgivable thing, but in at least one very real sense, it is now even more culpable the way the West turns a blind eye to Israel’s horrors. The Holocaust was perpetrated in great secrecy, and there was no Internet or international media equipped with satellites to tell the world what was happening. There was no United Nations or other international organizations watching. Today, what Israel does is everywhere to be seen. People in America eat their suppers watching Israeli jets bombing homes. Without much effort you can find images of Palestinian children with portions of their heads missing. And we all saw the Israelis from Sderot sit in lawn chairs on a bluff in the evening breeze laughing and applauding as women and children writhed in agony far below much like ants being stepped on.

Wrong! Hamas Are The Cowards

Bullshit! No, Hamas are the cowards, here. I question John Chuckman's credibility, motive and intent. (He has been writing Anti-Israel claptrap for years.) In reality, if the murderous cowards, known as Hamas stopped their attacks (using women and children as shields) on the Israeli population, there would be no need to retaliate. Chuckman never mentions the fact that Hamas drew first blood and continues to do so. He ignores the fact that Hamas is the aggressor. He ignores the fact that Hamas launches missiles, regularly, into a civilian population from schools and mosques, hiding behind a civilian Palestinian population. If that isn't cowardice, what is? (It's amazing that Israel has kept the civilian casualties so low, under these circumstances.) Hamas is to blame. Period. .....Anyone who is attacked has the basic right to defend itself and it's people. If and when this Cancer (Hamas) is completely removed, the Palestinian people can have a lasting peace.

Hate is all you've got

I should have known better than to respond to your nonsense. I will have to do what (almost) everyone else does, when you post your Bullshit. Ignore it. .....Look into a mirror when you say, "Baboso" (because of your rabid hatred toward an entire nation). You would not know truth if you were choking on it.

mexika
really... what nation,

really... what nation, Israel? Israel is not not a nation, its a settler colonizing state. Fine, ignore what you want, either ways, people of the world are finding out the savagery of the zionist state. I think Israel carries the rabid hatred toward an entire nation, palestine! Hate is the enemy of any people and if some people can't get along with palestine and other people, who is the hater?? Deja de mamar, manana vas a comer de lo que te gusta mas....no empiezes de lo que no puedes acabar...... En donde aprendiste ese Espanol tan culero?? Si vas a defender a una nation decadante, esta bien, pero no insultes con tus chingaderes, tu empesaste, los que tienen razon van a cabar, y van a cabar con la pura verded.....

que Soplas, mija?

Bland1900
hate is the same in any language

Bottom line - you are supportive of cowardly terrorists. I stand with (the Nation of) Israel.

Not a single word about the genocidal intentions and the initial rocket attacks by Hamas, just the attempt to portray one side as defenseless, harmless victim and to demonize the other and portray it as the ultimate satanic evil. It's clear by now this is going to be a hit piece full of one-sided polemics.

Does the fact that Israel - at least for now – has the military superiority over Hamas mean that it doesn't have the right to defend itself against attacks against its civilian population? What kind of distorted interpretation of international law is that supposed to be?

Anyone slightly able to see the bigger picture - not just the blinker version with the eternal David-against-Goliath tale that is intended to push everybody's buttons – and a basic understanding of the history in the Middle East will see that Israel is just a tiny island surrounded by huge Arab countries, many of which had openly declared their hostility towards Israel, i.e. denied its right to exist. Arab countries in the past tried to drive Israel into the sea by a war of aggression, and they even openly declared this intention. Arab countries don't care at all about Palestinian minorities in their own countries, yet they conveniently use the Palestinians as a tool to achieve their means, some of them funded and supported Palestinian and other Islamic extremists, like for example Qatar, Syria and Egypt (in the past).

Yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity exists only for tactical reasons. The establishment of a Palestinian state is a new tool to continue the fight against Israel and for Arab unity.

It has never been about building a home for a constructed nation called “the Palestinians”: it has always been about delegitimizing, demonizing, and trying to destroy the only country in the region that is not under Islamic rule.

Additionally: anyone who did the tiniest research into Arab extremists hate mongering disseminated regularly in their official media etc to this very day which is openly declaring their genocidal intent ( see here: www.memritv.org and www.palwatch.org ) will know that actually there are some very real dangers to Israel. Don't forget the Intifada years where many innocent Israeli civilians where deliberately targeted and killed.

First of all: this is utter bullshit given the fact that we had despicable anti-Semitic demonstrations all over Europe, strong anti-Israel bias in most Western media (allegedly all "Zionist controlled") like for example the New York Times and politicians like Ban Ki-Moon ([1], [2]) and Obama (allegedly "Rothschild's choice" as we have been told a few years ago and allegedly controlled by people like Rahm Emanuel) strongly criticizing Israel and putting it under pressure, with the Obama administration even stopping arms shipments to Israel. For for some "anti-Zionist" people this is still not enough of course. I wonder what they expect.

Secondly: the Israel-Nazi comparison is utterly incorrect as I have shown before (see for example here). Those comparisons are always problematic and I don't support them as they are always historically incorrect and they minimize Nazi atrocities. But if you want to see some examples of a mentality of today that comes closest to that of the Nazis, then see here:

The Hamas charter, for example, calls not just for Israel’s destruction but for the murder of Jews and blames Jews for engineering the French and Russian revolutions and both world wars

Quote:

And that is no accident. Hamas’s rarely-mentioned 1988 charter is a throwback to 1930s Nazi anti-Semitism, pure and simple, with a genocidal intent that is unambiguous. Indeed, Hamas is the spiritual successor to the anti-Semitic Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Palestinian leader who famously met and worked with Adolf Hitler and his henchman Heinrich Himmler, chief of the SS and architect of the Final Solution, as he aligned the Palestinian Arab cause with the Axis during World War II.

You might say that the battle that Hamas is fighting is not a new one at all, but a continuation of Hitler’s unfinished business from World War II. If this all sounds new to you it’s no wonder—the media rarely delves beyond the surface into Hamas’s ideology and historical antecedents.

There is no mechanism, no Elders of Zion, Anti-Zion... There is no such thing. But there are many who simply belong to some kind of fashion. And the fashion is – beat up Israel. Israel is presented as the great danger to the world. Pay attention, in the 1930s the Jew was the danger to world peace.

It's somehow funny and tragic at the same time that "anti-Zionists" seem confused and always get this wrong.
