Early Morning Headlines of note

UN Chief Ban calls for 'immediate end to IDF ground operation!'

Israeli blogger Treppenwitz calls for UN's Ban to 'immediately jump in East River!'

Seriously, where were these useful idiots for the past few years while Israel was being pounded by rockets and mortars?  Suddenly the UN is concerned about civilian casualties? Spare me!

You know what Mr. Ban?  Forget the East River... it's polluted enough already.  Just come over here and bite me!

I COMPLETELY agree-sometimes logic and reasoned arguments just aren't as appropriate as the use of a four letter word (I'm partial to the one that begins with a certain consonant after the second vowel.)

I was thinking the same thing this morning in regards to Bianca Jagger and Annie Lennox and other asshats like them. Where were their protests and marches over the thousands of Israeli children who have been bombarded with daily rockets for years??

Everyone can bite me. In the middle of Sderot. Next to the burned-out playground with the melted slide.

Not one of the apologists for the "victims" in Gaza seems to remember where their voices were during the last eight years, or indeed, where they were when Israel was attacked at the start of the Yom Kippur war (and certainly some of them were around, Tony Benn, Alexei Sayle etc)or any of the other attacks mounted against Israel.

This whole notion of their perception that the Israeli response is "disproportionate" is simply beyond the rational mind. But then, I forgot, these minds are not rational!

Yesterday I heard a report on that paragon of virtue and integrity, the BBC and a 'protester' in Jordan was calling on the Arab world to "wake up, today it is Gaza, tomorrow it is our turn". Forgive me, but when exactly did Israel express any territorial intentions in any conflict that wasn't forced upon her? Is "tomorrow it is our turn challenged" by the interviewer? Guess what? That would be a loud NO!

Only this morning they were at it again on Sky, BBC, CNN, and even Fox. All carried reports from "eyewitnesses" in (occupied)Gaza to attest to the horrors being suffered by the populace, the carnage, the lack or resources, and of course, the suffering of innocent women and children. The scene then cut to a video of a hospital or treatment station showing these "victims". Every one of them was an adult male.

Sure, they appeared to have wounds, i.e. facial cuts etc but not once did I see a woman or a child on a treatment table. Perhaps that's because they were being used as shields for these brave Hamas warriors and were, unfortunately, killed first?

And since only four Israelis have been killed since this conflict started, that should be 'acceptable' as Hamas do not have the technical capability to deliver pinpoint weapons in the same way as the Israelis. Thank goodness they are only firing off rockets with "non-explosive heads" then!

The disappointing/frustrating/anger-provoking thing is, people believe this rubbish! I posted a piece to this effect on one of Sky's forums, pointing out the relvant creed of Hamas, ("look Brother, there is a Jew hiding behind that tree, go kill him"), but thats as far as it got and they didn't post it. Presumably they didn't want to upset their Muslim audience.

Sorry for the rant, but whislt I deplore the loss of any innocent life, the context and background is being manipulated ruthlessly by Hamas to friendly pro-Palestinian media that appears to have lost any sense of objectivity, and this needs to be factored into Israel's wider term strategy.

Evict the UN. The city could use the currently wasted real estate to meet some true need.

One of the biggest outrages of modern times is that our taxpayers are still forced to finance that lunatics asylum on the East River. It is unbelievable that people are still, after so many years of documented corruption, incompetence and failure, believe that there is any reason why we should have a "UN".

We the USA would like once again to officially apologize for the UN, and for nurturing and allowing it to live. Somehow, the world's haven for graft and nepotism continues to receive unwavering support from the (allegedly) leader of the free world.

Meanwhile, Trep, I maintain that rather than having any UN rep come over there and bite you, that -- in moments of more clarity -- I think what you are wishing is that the UN would instead go over to the other side, far away from you, and bite someone else.

Along the lines of the late Douglas Adams' line about wishing the person who was afflicting you had never been born, rather than yourself.

Let him jump in a dirty river. Might as well see if he we can't give him some sort of fungus. ;)
