There are Muslim apologists who know that Palestinians are murdering, savage, backward, violent, primitive, barbaric beasts but will still take any fact reflecting unkindly on Palestinians and turn it against Israel. There exist many self-loathing Jews who want to present to the world the image of tolerance and understanding and so despite knowing the fact that Palestinians are murdering, savage, backward, violent, primitive, and barbaric beasts they blame Israel for forcing the Palestinians to be so; if it weren't for the so-called brutal occupation of Gaza, they reason, the citizens of that craphole would be minding their own business and hurting no one; ignoring the fact of course that Israel left Gaza alone more than three years ago.
Let's take the example of someone who has deluded himself into thinking that Israel is evil: reader Dan left this comment in response to my article Hamas denies it has weapons as they launch missile:
I'm by no means a bleeding heart liberal, but I cannot condone the conditions that exist in the Palestinian regions. A former priest of my church spent time there and described the horrid conditions that existed. And now we here there were 300 Palestinians killed to 1 Israeli? Surely even you can see that something's not right here. This just begets even more carnage.
Let's analyze his whines: "A former priest of my church spent time there and described the horrid conditions that existed."
So Gaza is filled with horrid conditions, so what? [However, it's not true, see my article Outrageous Photos of Starving Gazans] Does that prove it's Israel's fault? The Palestinians get hundreds of millions of dollars in handouts, do they spend it on schools, hospitals, farming utensils and process or infrastructure to improve their country? No, they buy missiles. Do they plow farms? No they dig tunnels to help smuggle arms and weapons for their "weaponless" citizenry.
The Hamas government receives ample fuel for humanitarian needs, including the operation of sewage treatment plants, but instead of using that fuel to clean sewage, Hamas hordes fuel for military purposes. Between 13.2 million and 16.9 million gallons of partially treated and untreated sewage from the Gaza Strip have been flowing daily into the Mediterranean Sea, according to Palestinian water authority officials and a report issued by the U.N. humanitarian office in Gaza [Atlanta Journal-Constitution]. So, yes, I'll be the first to admit that things are pretty shitty in Gaza. But it's Hamas that has been diverting tens of millions of dollars from its sewage plants to its war machine.
As for his complaint that "300 Palestinians killed to 1 Israeli? Surely even you can see that something's not right here."
300 to 1? I wish. Unfortunately it's only about 30 to 1, Dan is off by a decimal point. But what's his point? More Israelis should let themselves be killed just to be fair? Is it fair that Arabs in the Middle East have 167 times more land than Israel yet cannot find a place to put Palestinian refugees but keep them in camps for two generations?
And when did this notion come about that war deaths have to be fair? Where is that written? Is it fair that Nazi Germany lost 17 times as many people as the US? Is that fair? Should more Americans have died during WWII so that Liberal idiots would feel that things were fair in the universe?
Since I do not see it written anywhere, allow me to be the first to say: It is Moral to Kill More of your Enemy than They Do. 10 to 1, 100 to 1, 1000 to 1. In fact, if you value your country, your family and your life, it is your moral duty to try to kill a million to one. As to reader Dan's notion that 300 to 1 just begets even more carnage, I agree. The ratio is much too small. If Israel followed my advice of a million to one the carnage in Gaza would come to a complete stop. Anything less only invites more barbarism against the civilized world.
