|Child Killers: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Barack Obama|
How much evil is enough? How much misery?
Yet again the Israeli government, led by blood-thirsty tyrant Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, is slaughtering Palestinians. Yet again, the American government sits on its hands and lets its client state get away with mass murder.
In this latest bombardment, over 500 Palestinians have been killed to date, many of them women and children. Entire families in quiet neighborhoods have died while eating dinner or watching television together. Hospitals have been targeted and bombed with casualties recorded.
The hostilities began after three Israeli teens were allegedly kidnapped and murdered by Hamas militants last month. Make no mistake: This too is a tragedy and a despicable act. But like all such acts by pro-Palestine groups, its root cause is in Israel's occupation and persucution of Palestine territories, including the Gaza Strip where the current attacks are taking place.
Murder is murder. If three people are kidnapped and their lives taken, the culprits should absolutely be brought to justice. But if there were a killer loose in your neighborhood, would you be okay with the military coming in and bombing your neighborhood -- along with other neighborhoods -- as a solution? Of course not!
Netanyahu and Obama are war criminals many times over. And here's the thing: They know it. They know they are murderers as surely as any convicted killer. Don't be fooled by their titles, expensive suits, public image, scripted rhetoric, elevated status or domination of the media. They are cold-blooded child-killers who should be locked up til they rot, just like any child killer.
We can lean back and enjoy our summer, taking a break from our relatively minor problems. But if you care about others, if you care about children, if you have a conscience and a heart, you should take some time out to help the people of Gaza who are absolutely desperate and helpless. Make your voice heard!
And let it be known that you will not stand for our leaders to murder in our name.
