Where's outrage over dead kids?

  • Follow Letters

The situation in Gaza has gone to unbelievable levels.

We bomb schools and no one cares. We bomb refugee camps and no one cares. We bomb old people and no one cares. We bomb U.N. and Red Cross facilities and no one cares. We kill children in the hundreds and no one cares. We make children wet their beds because they are so scared and no one cares. Our tax money goes to build a strong Israeli army and we are proud of it.

We all know Patrick Henry's expression, "Give me liberty or give me death" -- and it looks like we gave the Palestinians their death sentence and no one cares.

And why couldn't the gangster

And why couldn't the gangster terrorists from Hamas forgo firing 7,000 rockets into civilian areas in Israel over the past few years? Why are these murderers intent on destroying Israel? What has Hamas accomplished during their management of the Gaza Strip -- absolutely nothing! Hamas was warned! How much was Israel expected to take? Why is it that some people think Israel has no rights? This war didn't have to happen. It was only the stupidity of Hamas that caused it, and you can deny and lie about it forever and the facts won't change.

It's gone to unbelievable

It's gone to unbelievable levels because America is a Zionist haven, that's why. With agencies like Emet designed to make Israel look better and "positive". Not all Americans agree with what Israel has done (nor what Hamas and the PLO has done over the years --- but they will target civilians, which is the outrage [the same outrage Americans feel what the Palestinians are facing with this lopsided killing, today]). Americans can't support killing civilians on either side. Thus, the disenchantment of the whole situation there. Americans, not the politicians, by and large are good people. But faced with a 2000 year-old hatred that both think is some "holy right", what do you expect? It's unfair, yes. Hamas and the other splinter groups need to understand in a civilized world you protest civilly. MLK, Jr did it. Palestinians can do it too, and with a groundswell of support worldwide. STOP caving into Israel, as they want the world to see them as some victim, and as long as they keep getting attack, they can play that card, over and over and over!

If you don't want to be gored

If you don't want to be gored by the bull, don't go into his pen and jab at him with a stick. If you don't want your children to be gored, don't drag them into the pen and use them as shields. The Hamas are the worst kind of cowards and should be eradicated. SandyK2005, you're a Dem.

The all-white media is made
Unpublished

The all-white media is made up of individuals that attempt to slant information. Some folks will fall for it some of the time. Some will fall for it all of the time, but the lack of images of dead kids is done by design to lower the outrage. The same tactic was employed by this president to prohibit pictures of dead servicemembers returning to Dover, DE. It has worked to keep the American's mind off the war. The same is true for world reaction to the killings in Gaza because the AWM has colluded to slant opinions. Again, control of terrible images are kept off the TV and therefore, kept off the uninformed American's mind. The outrage is that the media is sensoring information and "they" call this freedom?

The outrage is that terrorist

The outrage is that terrorist organizations are free to cause terror in innocent people's lives and people like some of those here think they shouldn't be held accountable. It is very simple, don't send rockets and suicide bombers into Israel and live in peace. In the history of modern Israel, the only time there has been military action is in response to attacks on the Israeli people or their sovereign state. You wonder why they are so aggressive in their defense? It is because they, as a people who have been persecuted and hunted and almost exterminated over and over again that they vowed "NEVER AGAIN". And I don't blame them for any defensive actions they take.

'Git er Done' Israel! Don't

'Git er Done' Israel! Don't slack off with your Hebrew Hammer. Hamas chooses to set up launch sites in school yards, hospitals,residential areas. They need the world's out cry and broadcast the dead children and civilians pictures for propoganda(sic). Israel wears a uniform into battle and identifies themselves...Hamas is cowardice like all facets of radical Islam.

While I can truthfully say

While I can truthfully say that the all white media has never been charged with colluting, I do fear many of them are closet collutists and may say colluting things in front of their children behind closed doors. I believe there may have been 1 or 2 reported cases of colluting in the Cherry Tree Crossing incident as well. Most collutists are so ashamed of this activity, they will go to great pain to keep it hidden. Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose as long as collutist are out there. Obama 012

Who is attacking who. Did

Who is attacking who. Did Israel "FIRST" launch the attack or Hamas. If you start something you better dang well better be able to finish it. Hamas has to try and kill all the jews and destroy Israel-it is written in their charter. It is their legal and moral obligation. SO if you want change start with Hamas. They shouldn't be allowed to teach their children bigotry and hatred to kill all jews, and they need to change their charter and be "willing" to recognize an Israeli state.

Now who is at fault when you

Now who is at fault when you launch rockets into Israel and "KNOW" they will retaliate. It is like letting your children play with a loaded gun so if they get killed don't be surprised. It is terrible but "OBVIOUSLY" it is a price the Palestinians are "WILLING" to pay. So if you don't want more dead kids then try stop firing rockets, recognize Israel, and "TRULY" seek a peace accord. I guess them Palestinians ain't too bright so eh.

"SandyK2005, you're a Dem."

"SandyK2005, you're a Dem." ---- Actually, I've always been an independent. Furthermore, I'm a moderate traditional conservative. In otherwords, Old World conservative, not this Commie brand made possible by Ex-Commies like Irving and Bill Kristol (which you Neo-Cons eat up like gospel on FOX).

"Hamas has to try and kill all the jews and destroy Israel-it is written in their charter." ---- As the Zionist Likud party toward Palestinians. They are in fact no better than Nazis, they imitate --- complete with Gestapo tactics and lies.

"They are in fact no better than Nazis, they imitate --- complete with Gestapo tactics and lies." And this is something you have observed first hand Sandy or something that you are being told? If you haven't observed it first hand you are no better than those that are "Ex-Commies like Irving and Bill Kristol (Neo-Cons eat up like gospel on FOX)".

Brings back memories of the

Brings back memories of the civil rights era down here in Dixie. The police once caught one of those outside agitators and brought him back to hq, burried him up to his neck in the dirt, then sicked a German Shepherd on him. When the man spat in the dog's eyes, the authorities shot the man for not fightihg fair.

Sounds like another story I

Sounds like another story I once read about a country of rebels who decided they didn't want another country telling them how they should lead their lives. The country of rebels were greatly outnumbered and resorted to terroristic hit and run tactics and looked for support world wide, but no one wanted to go against the big guys. Well in the end, the rebelious country finally defeated the big country, and the world was changed forever.

We are a compassionate nation

We are a compassionate nation -- most times, too compassionate. Most nations fight wars to win them, even at the cost of neutralizing the civilian population. However, these wars end with victory or defeat. The US fights wars in order to eventually seat a democratic-style government and let them thrive as a productive nation. This approach does not work. We need to once again revert to the old-style WWII tactics -- Destroy, then rebuild, while keeping all opposition at bay, at any cost. Israel has it tatooed on their foreheads -- DO NOT MESS WITH US. Many people in the US believe that Israel should conquer Hamas, at any cost, and never again release its grasp. Myself included.

"If you haven't observed it first hand" ---- Where you in Germany or Japan during WWII firsthand, to get the truth? No, so don't pull that BS. You're an apologizer to a country that kills it's own "allies" and even lies about it. Remember USS Liberty, you fifth columnist Trotskyists. >:(

Urban Dictionary: collute 1.

Urban Dictionary: collute
1. collute. 'cool' and cute in a similar way, generally referencing personality. That girl i met at lunch was so collute!

People, if you are going to take the time to share your opinions, at least use Google to make sure you are using the correct word.

Two questions: 1. Gaza Strip or Israel- which allows both Jews and Muslims to vote in elections?

2. Gaza Strip or Israel-which allows Jews and Muslims to practice their own religion?

By the way, I missed the history lesson in which Colonials went to England, strapped bombs onto themselves and blew up innocent Brits. Come to think of it, I don't remember any Colonials ever going to England and harming any Brits.

They always claim it's a mistake, even if you shove reams of evidence in front of their faces. Been like that since the existence of Israel. My only wish is a comet to land right smack into that region and make the entire area one major crater -- forget glass parking lots. That'll end the fight from there on. Then LIFE can go on. No point in wasting it on killing more each decade.

Israel is protecting itself,

Israel is protecting itself, it dropped phamplets to warn them and, yes, they put their children in harms' way by teaching them from birth to die for Allah by blowing up others for their faith. If Mexico or Canada was lobbing bombs at us we would take the same action. Don"t get it twisted!
