Blogging Tory "Gay and Right" Fred has a quick and dirty solution for all that Mideast bad craziness:
Why does Israel feed its enemies????
Isn't it time to say enough is enough???
And then there’s the issue relating to Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians in Gaza. Lauren Booth, sister-in-law of former British premier Tony Blair, recently entered Gaza aboard a protest boat on August 23 and told Ynet News in Israel that Gaza was "the largest concentration camp in the world today" and a "humanitarian crisis on the scale of Darfur." She was later photographed at a seemingly well-stocked grocery store in the so-called "concentration camp." So, let’s consider how these Israeli “monsters” have behaved. Hamas has declared its intention to destroy Israel and murder every Jew residing there, and has fired over 7,000 missiles at southern Israel. In return, Israel is providing 70% of Gaza’s electrical power and, each week sends tons of food, fuel and humanitarian aid to an enemy whose entire rationale for existence is the extermination or subjugation of every Jew in Israel. During World War II, the Allies firebombed Dresden, obliterated German cities, and dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Israel feeds its enemies!
Mercifully, Fred's first commenter points out a couple awkward details:
People are still starving in Gaza, don't have electricity, but that's another point.
The people in Gaza, have nowhere to go, they are trapped like animals, maybe Israel should just starve all those woman and children to death, not like it would be genocide or anything...
Israel has created it's own enemy in the Palestinian people, it's taken its land, and homes.
Maybe we should praise Israel for providing some Palestinians with the basics to live, kudos. That's very big of them.
Israel is helping the humanitarian crisis it's created.
Oh, and Fred? There's another reason that Israel continues to supply food to the Palestinians. Because not doing so would be kind of a war crime:
Article 33. No protected person may be punished for an offence he or she has not personally committed. Collective penalties and likewise all measures of intimidation or of terrorism are prohibited.
In all fairness, Fred can be forgiven for not knowing that. After all, he's a Blogging Tory, which means he's a moron. It kind of goes with the territory.
