This is just NOT RIGHT

I seldom say anything of a political nature on this blog, but this has gone on far enough. I am shocked and horrified with the INDISCRIMINATE bombing of Gaza by Israel. Today is the 4th day of the indiscriminate bombing of Gaza BY Israel.

When the World Trade Center was destroyed, Americans did everything they could to protect themselves.

When Spain's transit system was bombed, everyone throughout the world mourned.

When Britain's subways were attacked, the world stood back in shock and measures were taken.

Even Kosevo got protected.
Even Somalia got aid from world organizations.
Even Darfur was not begrudged the right to protect itself.

But after over 60 years of having endured attack after attack after attack after attack,by the Israelis, Palestinians are still being scolded for trying to attempt to defend themselves and they are still being told that they have no right to fight back.

Where's the justice in that?
Where's the international sympathy,
Where's the international help?

New York gets protected, Spain gets sympathy, Britain takes action.

But Palestine? 100 tons of bombs are dropped on the world's most densely-populated city (and region) and the world appears to be applauding these gristly, brutal and ghastly results of Gaza's 9-11.

And if the people of Gaza dare to protect themselves or to fight back, they will be carpet-bombed, they will be exterminated like fish in a barrel.

This is just NOT RIGHT.

For the record, the whole world is not applauding. I, for one, am not.

Good post.
