CNN Thinks Israel Deserves It (Part שתיים)
Let's say that I always hated Canada-
[I don't, I love Canada, but please try and follow my analogy.]
The width of Lake Erie from Avon Lake, Ohio (a short drive from my home), to Point Pelee National Park in Canada, is only about 45 miles. If my burning hatred for those filthy Canadians festered long enough, I could actually do something about it.
I bet I could rustle up some friends to help me build some industrial strength missiles that I could shoot into Canada. I'm not using hyperbole, I am saying that launching missiles from the Lake Erie shore onto Canadian soil is plausible with me and my friends' expertise.
What would be the only things stopping me from my diabolical plan?
Cost - I make a decent living, but I don't have the thousands of dollars of disposable income that it would take to fire semi-sophisticated rocketry at my Canadian Targets.
FBI/CIA - I'm pretty confident I could circumvent the local police, but all it would take is one friend with loose lips asking the wrong questions at the local Home Depot and next thing you know, I would have American Intelligence Agencies breathing down my neck.
With that being said, if I was smart (and serious), I am convinced that I could get a few missiles onto Canadian soil.
But here's the crux of my analogy. Within a day I would easily be arrested by American Authorities and probably spend the rest of my life in prison. Why? Because America, as a government, respects Canada's right to exist and Canada respects America's right to exist.
Which brings us to Israel.
If you are a citizen in the Gaza Strip:
How do you afford weapons in a dirt poor territory? (With restricted borders.)
Don't you fear the Palestinian National Authority putting you in jail?
And the answers to those questions are why we're in this mess in the first place. Hamas, the militant group, has used the Palestinian's hatred of Israel as their staging point. Palestinians shoot rockets into Israel, Israelis retaliate with a heavy hand, and then Gaza weeps.
If Israel wanted to be serious about stopping attacks, it would retaliate against the country that supplies Hamas. If that's Iran, attack Iran. If that's Qatar, attack Qatar. Nothing is going to be solved by attacking Palestinians that are already being used as pawns.
As a matter of fact, Palestinians in Gaza are blinded by hatred. If they were smart (they are not), they would forget about a homeland and ask to be annexed to Egypt and their Sunni Muslim Brothers. Instead of attacking Israel, use that money that you currently use on weapons, and in partnership with Egypt's ingenuity, make Gaza a gem on the Mediterranean Coast.
Israelis have nowhere to go. Your clever retort is maybe Israel should be annexed to Egypt. Yeah, with the other 12 Jews, (yes TWELVE). Palestinian Arabs can live anywhere in the Arab World. Many of Israel's neighbor's don't even acknowledge their Right to Exist.
Now you're yelling at me about Jewish Wars-
I'm going to stop you right there. I am a Blogger and I have Free Speech. I believe that Israel has a right to exist. Hamas believes, right from their mission statement, that 'Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it. Israel's constitution makes no such declarations about their neighbors.
So there's my line. But I'm not a multi-national news organization. CNN keeps saying that Israel keeps attacking Gaza...
But then I have to go to the Drudge Report, which links to Israeli Newspapers, to find out that over 3,000 missiles have been launches into Israel.
CNN keeps beating the drum of Israeli Launches without mentioning the Gaza Launches. CNN's angle seems to be it's not fair that Israel has an Iron Dome. And there are bigger news stories in the world, (like Marjorie Taylor Greene?)
Today RT Asked: If Jesus was on the Israeli-Palestinian Frontline Now, What Would He Do? I don't necessarily agree with RT's answer, but it is an intriguing read. You know who doesn't care what Jesus would do? CNN.
Beacon of Speech says that if Jesus called for peace today on the Israeli-Palestinian Frontline, he would probably be killed. Oh, I'm not picking a side, I'm saying by either side. But you're asking the wrong question. What would the God of the Old Testament do?
That's easy. A giant flood. Gaza, Israel, Syria, Iran, Iraq, the whole Middle East really, just washed away.
'Cause I'm praying for rain
I'm praying for tidal waves
I wanna see the ground give way
I wanna watch it all go down
What if God said I'd have to become a Canadian to avoid the floods and that AMERICA was getting washed away?
"Um, okay, eh?"
I used to work with a douche-bag named Lewis. He gets no anonymity, that was his name. Lewis was good-looking and charismatic. Every woman he met had a crush on him and he carried an aura of intelligence and wisdom.
What I didn't know until after a few years of admiration, was that Lewis' shtick was all a ruse. He slept with a prodigious amount women and everything about his personality was about keeping that conveyor belt moving. He acted a certain way to score, then tossed ladies to the side like garbage.
Today, when talking about the Israeli-Gaza Conflict, Kyrie Irving rolled out with this amazingly profound, yet self-centered, quote:
I'm not going to lie to you guys, a lot of stuff is going on in this world, and basketball is just not the most important thing to me right now," - ESPN
Surprise, surprise. You know how I know that I'm right in my evaluation? Dean Obeidallah at CNN just posted his angle: Palestinians deserve the same security, equality and right to a homeland as the Israelis.
Okay, the new Palestinian Homeland is Gaza, West Bank, and Golan Heights. Palestine also gets a sliver of desert connecting West Bank and Gaza. See how easy that was?
All Palestine has to do is kick Hamas out from inside of their borders and proclaim Israel's Right to Exist. And, using the Lake Erie Analogy as our guide, if anyone launches missiles from within Palestinian Borders, the new Palestinian Government will put them in jail for life.
Again a reporter from CNN is lamenting the "unequal" loss of life.
From the Daily Mail: Also hitting new outlets this evening, CNN Contributor Adeel Raja tweeted (in 2014), "Hitler was German and did good with those Jews."
