Party's over boys...
Israel has finally sent its ground soldiers into Gaza in an attempt to protect its southern citizens from rocket attacks.
But you wouldn't know it from CNN.
Fredricka Whitfield is talking to Reda Mansour, the Israeli Consul General in Atlanta, about "hope" for the future.
She's chastising him about Israeli actions, repeatedly asking him "what the point" of this is when both sides can never agree. Now she's asking him how he feels when he sees images of Israeli soldiers going into Gaza, knowing there will be more bloodshed.
I don't know Fredricka, maybe he feels like the Jews in Auschwitz did on D-Day - hopeful that they would be rescued from their foreign oppressors? Maybe he feels the way someone who has witnessed a murder feels when they see the police finally going to arrest the suicidal perpetrators (who are armed with RPG's and anti-tank missiles)? AFTER ALMOST EIGHT YEARS.
But I have a question for you Mrs. Whitfield...do you know anything about the person you are interviewing? Did you know that Reda Mansour is not only not Jewish, not only an Arab, but a Muslim himself? What makes him any different than the people in Gaza, precisely? If this is just a war of ideals between two sides that can never understand each other...can you explain to me how it is possible that one side (Israel) has people from the other side not just as functioning members of society but as AMBASSADORS to other countries? Does any Muslim country have any Jewish soccer stars? How about any Jews in foreign ministry positions? Does any Muslim country have any Jews in anything other than the dhimmi position? How can it be that someone like Mansour can bury the hatchet and become a part of civil society but Hamas only wants to killkillkill?
We don't ask these questions on CNN now do we? It's much easier to harass representatives of Israel on television and demand from them what the "point" is of an operation that is designed to put an end to rocket fire on innocent civilians! What's the "point" of protecting Jews from murder, death and destruction? Right Fredricka? This goes along with nonstop conversations with Christiane Amanpour, various Arab representatives and our favorite Hamas tool, Ben Wedeman about what can be done to stop this invasion. Whitfield just exclaimed with horror that even though "so many" have spoken out against the Israeli action, no one has really done anything to help the Palestinians.
Meantime not a single word about the Jewish CIVILIAN victims of this nightmare...
...which by the way is what it's all about. There you go Fredricka, that's the "point" of this. Did you see those little children running away in panic as sirens blare? All they have is 15 seconds to scream their way to the nearest bomb shelter. Why don't you report on the fact that when ISRAEL bombs, they CALL the neighbors of the terrorists first to warn them to evacuate. What other military willingly throws away the element of surprise in an attempt to protect the OTHER side's civilians?? Clearly not Hamas as you can see by the video above.
Imagine for a minute that was your life...and that attacks like that happened in your city not just everyday...not just 5 times a day but 30-80 times a day. FOR EIGHT YEARS. You get up in the morning, drink your cup of coffee, read the newspaper, walk to the school bus stop with your children when all of the sudden RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT. You're at your child's birthday party with all of your friends and family, cutting the cake and singing and giving presents, laughing and talking and RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT. You are out on a date with your wife or husband, out to dinner after a long day's work just trying to unwindRED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERTRED ALERT RED ALERT.
What nation on this planet would accept this kind of reality?
And so we have the invasion that Hamas has been begging for for years.
There is however, another invasion underway. This one may be a little closer to your home...especially if you live in South Florida. This video:
Was sent to me by my friends over at the Australian Islamist Monitor.
I, like Tom Trento (the guy who shot the video) can't really say too much that these peace activists aren't saying on their own.
Some choice quotes from the video:
"Nuke, nuke Israel!"
"Go back to the ovens! You need a big oven"
"Once people really understand the real beauty of Islam they'll have no choice but to accept it"
My, what a lovely demonstration for peace, understanding and liberalism you have put on for us here. All in defense of the right to shoot rockets into Israeli cities. Can anyone watch that video and not get the impression that if not for the police that an anti-Jewish pogrom would have erupted in the streets of Fort Lauderdale? This is TERRORISM. These people are TERRORIZING Jews in America. It's moments like this that remind me again of why every Jew, no matter what their political affiliation must support Israel's right to exist and defend itself. For the umpteenth time, demonstrators who claim they are anti-Israel but not anti-Jewish are LYING to you. Period.
But where is the outrage? Why isn't this being reported on CNN? They call these near-riots "demonstrations against Israeli actions" instead of what they really are. And they never show you this kind of footage...in fact they never show you ANY footage of these Nazi-wannabes. Just more pictures of crying Palestinian children.
For the second week in a row I'm going to close with a prayer...this one from Tehillim.
1 A Song of Ascents.
I will lift up mine eyes unto the mountains: from whence shall my help come?
2 My help cometh from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved; He that keepeth thee will not slumber.
4 Behold, He that keepeth Israel doth neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD is thy keeper; the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
7 The LORD shall keep thee from all evil; He shall keep thy soul.
8 The LORD shall guard thy going out and thy coming in, from this time forth and for ever.
