My view of Great Britain is somewhat myopic I have two sources of information the Press dominated by the BBC, and this blog. Now I know as a matter of due course that the BBC is Biased…. What I find interesting is the free and dissenting voices here are silent on or hostile on certain issues. One in particular.
I know our host will address this, the weekend isn’t usually his time for heavy posting. There are however other voices here. I see a ton of voices raised against the outrage of a plane being shot down. Now true it is a horror. I believe the rebels shot it down. I know Vlad the first gave them the weapon system to do so, I know this is the 4th plane shot down this way in the past 2 months.
Putin did not give the order to do so. I can’t prove this, but it makes no sense that he did. It does not benefit his cause of controlling the region. Yet this is the debate that consumes you.
Why are you not concerned over the tens of thousands that marched in the streets in favor of the Palestinians? Over ten thousand people take to the streets and scream death to Israel, death to Cameron for supporting it, and nary a word. Why not?
Yes the conflict that is taking place today in Gaza is not a fair one, at least in the sense of the matching of strengths. Israel can not be withstood as a military force by those that inhabit Gaza. Yet those that inhabit Gaza have continually rained rockets down upon the Israelis heads. Much the same as the Nazi’s did to London. Not as effectively as the Nazi’s but in exactly the same tactic.
Tens of thousands rally in London against Israel’s Gaza op
In huge demonstration, protesters denounce Israel as terrorist state, castigate PM Cameron for backing right to self-defense
Tens of thousands protested in London Saturday afternoon against Israel’s military operations in Gaza, denouncing Israel as a terrorist state and castigating British Prime Minister David Cameron for backing Israel’s right to self-defense against Hamas rocket fire.
At one point, a woman on the podium shouted “from the river to the sea” — a call for the elimination of Israel — and protesters responded by yelling “Palestine will be free.”
The crowd also directed shouts of “Shame on you” at Cameron, who publicly backed Israel’s right to defend itself against Hamas rocket fire aimed at the Israeli civilian population.
These people live amongst you. They believe that Hamas has the right, the duty, to kill Jews. They condemn Israel for self defense, and your Prime Minister for supporting that notion.
I ask do none of you see the danger in this? Do none of you have even the slightest concern that your neighbors are supporting terror? Do you not understand that if they support terror against Israel they will also support it against you? They may even act against you. After all you are not Palestinian. In the scheme of things you are no different to them than any Jew.
They must be allowed to show their support, and I am sure that the intelligence services were there cataloging and tagging possible future threats. What I don’t understand is the outrage over a plane and not a peep about Tens of Thousands of possible supporters of terror in your own back yard.
