Wow, what an incredible collection of anti-Israel propaganda. A real overkill in fact.
Let's break it down to it's very mundane and often repeated components, shall we?
Yes, this has absolutely nothing to do whatsoever with Israel's treatment of the Palestinians including the blockade. Increase the pressure and use the attacks to justified the continued inhuman treatment.
Here we have the anti-Israeli double standard: Any military action done by Israel is inherently and purely OFFENSIVE in nature. Israel NEVER has any reason for self-defense and it is always the first one to attack. The hundreds of Israeli citizens murdered in cold blood are conveniently forgotten and the timeline of the conflict is inverted. No real proof of this "nice" schema is ever presented.
Truly, Dr. Goebbels would have been proud
Note the dehumanisation here. Again, this is in the context of the Palestinians being to blame for their own fate, so not only can we indulge in that human tendency to dehumanise our enemies, we can blame them for it as well.
Note the continual denial of clearly visible and openly stated facts: the continuous fall of Palestinians towards fundamental islamism, the clearly stated goals of Palestinian leaders ("Itvah El-Yahood! - Kill all Jews!), the openly stated tactics, preferred by Palestinians ("The womb of the Arab woman is my strongest weapon" - Yasser Arafat), The demographical statistics, etc. etc.
Truly, it's the DENIAL OF FACTS that is the clearest sign of the modern anti-sem... sorry, anti-Israeli. ;)
And that will be their last day.
I'm sure you would argue that this is an impartial statement of fact.
I can assure you that I'm getting a very different (and chilling) vibe from it.
And here we see another example of the modern left-wing anti-Israeli advocate: the idea that war can somehow be not chilling.
Come on, man - it's war. People die. People kill. People suffer. People hate. You expect it to be civilized?
Israeli society is right wing and getting more right wing. At this point in time, it's probably fair to say that it's inherently right wing, bordering on fascism and that while there are probably many decent Israelis they are quite clearly in the minority and will have no political influence in the remotely forseeable future, so I have no expectation whatsoever of any change in the opposite direction.
And over here is the funniest: our leftie historian managed to completely invert the actual history: he knows so little on the subject that he totally misses the inherently LEFT political system in Israel: It's founding, it's first 30(!) years of virtually unchallenged LEFT government, it's judicial system, almost COMPLETELY LEFT and, what's worse, virtually impossible to change in any way. The fact is, that Israelies have consistently voted LEFT throughout Israel's history, except in times when the left party in power has managed to screw things up beyond any recognition. So yeah, the government is rightwing right now - because the previous leftwing government has brought this most recent escalation of violence, and the people have had enough with the "peace at any cost" mentality.
Don't worry about it- I think there are a lot of people who have lost hope with Israel, myself included. And please don't tell me that you don't need my support or care what people like me think- that much is obvious.
Another example of the leftie's misguidedness: he thinks that his opinion should matter - it really shouldn't. It's our war, let us fight it out.
Yes, I'm impressed. You did it all on your own! The strength of Israel has absolutely *nothing* to do with the military and financial support of the world's richest and most powerful country.
And the last (but not least) - the all powerful, unquestionable assumption that Israel's existence is a result of the support of the almighty U.S of A. And USA is into it, of course, because of the Evil Jewish Lobby.
I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but USA's aid to Israel is very small. It's very little money, compared to Israel's budget, and most of it is in form of overpriced US military equipment - equipment that Israeli army would never have bought otherwise. Also, USA supplies aid to other countries in the area - all of them strategic enemies of Israel. A big example of this would be Egypt that gets an identical aid package.
Israel, of course, relies on international support, but not in the form of aid - but in the form of strong economic ties with pretty much ALL OF THE DEVELOPED COUNTRIES. And that's not due to some American or Jewish influence: unlike most all of it's geographical neighbours Israel actually has stuff to offer, besides it's natural resources.
