Israel, Don't Throw Away Your Humanity



Hmmm...That should stir some emotions...It's a pretty sad picture isn't? So is this next one...


In case you don't quite get it...That's his child...These picture don't get a lot of play from the U.S. media...Why?  because these people are Palestinian....And for my entire life, the crooked politicians, and the media, run mostly by dolts have told us that Israel is our solemn ally, and we must support them no matter what...Sometimes allies are wrong...You know, like the top 3 spies caught spying on the U.S. were from Israel...

Before we go any further, this is not an anti-Israel, anti-Semitic post...This is just my honest opinion...And you will never hear, read, or see me supporting Islamic Extremists and a terrorist group such as Hamas...This is simply me trying to make people aware that for ten days, while everyone was fixated on LeBron James, innocent Palestinian children have been getting ripped to shreds by Israeli bombs...And I'm not joking about the LeBron shit...Luke Russert  lost any once or credibility and tarnished his father's great reputation when interviewing a congressman, he cut him off, stooped everything, and announced that James had decided to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers...

And yes, plenty of innocent children in Israel have been killed over the years of constant, insane warring in that region...But I'm talking about right now...We can't do anything about the past, other then making the future better...

We always hear about how Israel is mistreated in that region...But it wasn't until I had a friend who's family was Palestinian that I found out just how awful Israelis treated them...No, it's not as bad as how Jews were treated by the Germans...But it's still bad...Yes, Hamas has done awful things, but that doesn't mean throw away humanity...That doesn't mean lobbing bombs on a beach where innocent children had been playing soccer...

Anthony Bourdain Tweeted about this picture...Maybe it’s the fact that I walked on that beach—and have a small child that makes this photo so devastating.



No matter who you are, and where you've been, this should be devastating to you...

Shortly before this happened, NBC reporter, Ayman Mohyeldin had been kicking the ball with them...Four children were killed and three more were wounded in the Israeli airstrike...Mohyeldin tweeted this picture, along with a picture of a crying mother...He tweeted the facts of the children being bombed...Shortly after simply reporting what had happened, NBC removed him from his post...This bothers me greatly, because everytime  some one calls Israel out for the horrible shit they do, it's swept under the rug...They are shut up...Just because some one is considered an ally doesn't mean we should bite our tongues when they are being fuck-ups...

Israel is being a fuck-up...





After all this, I would have hoped to see Israel try to de-escalate the situation, but instead, they started rolling ground forces into Gaza today...I'm sorry Israel, I can't support you right now...You have indiscriminately killed innocent men, women and children, and instead of trying slow things down, trying to get some civilized talks going, you are pushing for all out war...You actually seem hell bent on wiping out the Palestinian people...You're throwing away ever once of your humanity you have, and I would have expected more from an "ally."


The Beeze.

Very riveting images in a sad state of affairs, indeed. My heart aches for the innocent victims on both sides of the fence. Good read, man. I admire your honesty and compassion for human life.
