New year, same old story.
Earlier this week, the Palestinians pushed to join the International Criminal Court, in order to prosecute Israel for alleged war crimes.
One of the countries that voted for the Palestinians was France. Yesterday, gunmen stormed into the Paris office of Charlie Hebdo, a French Satirical magazine. Witnesses claim that they were militant Muslims. 12 people in total are now dead.
While my heart breaks for the families of the victims, I have to say it. What goes around comes around.
Europe has been known in the last few years for becoming multicultural. Multiculturalism is a wonderful thing, however, it must be balanced by respect for the law and respect for the traditions of the country and it’s citizens.
When one puts their head in the sand when it comes to terrorism (like Europe has) this is what they get.
What goes around comes around.
As of a few minutes ago, Yahoo News has 17 stories in regards to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.
Based on recent history, I can guess that the reporting is not 100% accurate.
If the job of news media is to accurately report on what is going on in the world and let the reader or viewer make a decision on their own, they are doing a poor job.
Or they are doing the same sheep like reporting without doing their own homework.
I think the news media needs to find a new obsession and do their homework before blindly sharing lies and half truths.
SodaStream, a company that has revolutionized the beverage industry by turning ordinary tap water into soda and other sugary drinks has closed their plant in Israel, forcing the company to fire their employees.
The BDS movement (Boycott, Divestment and Sanction) continue to state that their goal is to help the Palestinians. They claim that this is a victory for their cause.
If that is their goal, then they have failed. How does unemployment help the Palestinians? I would love to know. If someone would like to enlighten me, they are welcome to do so.
In their continued effort to undermine Israel, the BDS movement and their ilk have shown their true colors. They, like many others, are not there because they support the Palestinians. They want to wipe Israel off the map.
I hope they are happy.
While you were pointing the fingers at Israel and making all sort of accusations, you were ignoring the real human rights abuses.
- Christians in certain Middle Eastern countries are facing an agonizing decision. Convert to Islam or die.
- The Yazidi’s, an ethnic minority have been forced out of their homes by ISIS. The lucky ones have escaped to the mountains, where they are receiving airdropped supplies from the United States. The rest have been kidnapped or killed.
- Lebanon continues to take in more Syrian refugees.
- The girls kidnapped in the spring by Boko Haram have not been returned to their families.
- The LGBT community in Uganda have seen an anti-gay ruling overturned, but that does not mean they are free to live as they wish.
Shall I go on?
Israel is not perfect and never will be. The government is run by human beings, as imperfect and susceptible to mistakes anyone else in the world is. However, it is the only legitimate democracy in that region. All citizens have the same rights and are equal in the eyes of the law, regardless of the labels they use to define themselves .
To the celebrities and journalists who mindlessly use their status and social media to spread the lies, I suggest you do your research. To my co-religionists who either remain silent or have supported the Palestinians, I would like to remind you that the Hamas charter clearly states that one of their objectives is to kill the Jews and destroy Israel. Not some Jews, but ALL Jews. Their goal is to complete what the Nazis started 70 years ago.
I’m going to end this post with the video below, because Joan Rivers, in her own Joan Rivers way, hit’s the nail on the head.
