Discussion: US 'Appalled' By Israel Shelling Of UN School

Discussion for article #225896

Cue the outrage-at-Hamas “they do the same thing!” accusation, which begs the question whether there is any difference expected of conduct of a nation-state versus that a “terrorist organization.”

Is this the same school where the Israelis claim to have found rockets what, two or is it three times?
OK Israel. Now would be a good time to make with the proof.
What? You went in there three times, found rockets, and nobody has any video? Israel has more Military Intelligence than that, Right?

Now, now, US government; you’re second-guessing Bibi again. Keep this up, and he’ll have to scold you again, but in front of a joint session of Congress!

A time capsule. That is where we ought to put all of our comments, all of the peace talks and diplomacy. Then open it every 5 or 10 years and recycle them, then back into the capsule for safekeeping until we need to make the same statements all over again.
We can’t shame or reason with people whose mission is absolute destruction of the other and who don’t care one iota about our opinions. This isn’t God’s country that we finance, it is the Devil’s playground, metaphorically speaking of course.

Eternal ME peace is a pipe dream, a figment of the imagination. We can’t buy it, it isn’t available and there is no technological cure. We have a better chance of fixing the climate change calamity and really, that is a more worthwhile effort.
This is base human hatred at it’s worst. We, at best, could reduce the suffering by ending our support and that should happen today, at worst.

What part of, we are being used, doesn’t our government get?

These are the things that Bibi says you are not allowed to second guess.

Wrote to my Senators and Reps this morning, FWIW, saying IMHO it is time to spend those billions on the US children and Veterans and let Israel pay their own way.

I have a feeling that this direct criticism of Israel was inspired by the “second-guessing” leak that we read about yesterday. Obama is clearly annoyed that the Israelis leaked that. Keep it up, BB. I look forward to future diplomatic rupture between us and them.
