Everyone knows the situation between Israel and Palestine……but few Americans will think about what some of the problem is……please take time to think about this one thing……
Say you have a small olive grove and it is decided that an apartment complex is going in on your farm…..your land is taken and your olive trees cut down to make way for the complex….at that point would you get pissed?
Or how about there is this 2nd cousin that is an outlaw, a law breaker, and because he is part of your family, even a distant relative, your house gets demolished and land seized…..would you get pissed?
Can you honestly say that you would accept these retaliations?
The US is always hypocritical when it comes to issues and policies dealing with Israel. For instance, the US worked hard to keep nukes out of the Middle East but Israel is allowed to possess such weapons…….
We are always siding with this humanitarian crisis or that…..but have NO tolerance for the suffering of the Palestinian people…..the latest news just emphasizes this hypocrisy…..
A U.S. jury on Monday ordered the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and the Palestinian Authority (PA) to pay more than $218 million for providing material support used in shootings and bombings in the Jerusalem area more than a decade ago.
The verdict in Manhattan federal court added a new dimension to the long-running Middle East conflict, as American victims sought to use U.S. courts to seek damages under the Anti-Terrorism Act.
Jurors found in favor of 10 American families suing over six attacks attributed to Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades and Hamas. Victims and their families had requested more than $350 million over shootings and bombings from 2002 to 2004 that killed 33 people and injured over 450.
Justice should not be one-sided…….why am I saying such?
The AP looked at 247 of the 5,000+ Israeli airstrikes in the war, all of which were focused on residential areas, and confirmed a massive death toll even in this small sample of the attacks.
They confirmed 844 dead. 508 of them, over 60% of the total, were women, children, and the elderly, all definitely civilians. The slain men are more difficult to conclusively identify, but since these were residential areas it’s safe to assume civilians are also among them.
Even with this info the US will fight any actions that is taken to hold Israel responsible for anything. At what point does the US see the devastation that Israel causes in both life and destruction?
How long will Israel’s free ride continue?
The answer is….as long as the politicians can get in the pockets of Israelis for cash…..the Palestinian people will NEVER get justice for anything that Israel does to them.
