A quote to ponder

In January 2009, former Ireland President and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Mary Robinson said (of Gaza):

“Their whole civilisation has been destroyed, I’m not exaggerating….It’s almost unbelievable that the world doesn’t care while this is happening.” Its silence makes it complicit.

    It’s truly amazing that it seems as if the Israeli’s can do no wrong when they are blatantly attempting the genocide of the Palestinians. While everyone in this conflict has some responsibility for the situation, it seems as if Israel has been exacerbating it for some time while playing to the international crowd about seeking a solution. While I certainly can hope that things will get better, my fear is that they will get worse first…

    You sure didn’t waste any time. Glad to see you here amigo. I’m afraid I’ve gotten sort of monotonous over the last few months on the Israel key, but I see this as a huge problem and a perfect embodiment of exactly what is wrong with US dealings with the rest of the world. We uphold the wealthy and powerful at the expense of the poor and downtrodden. We care not for life, but only for the money that can be made. All of the time we cry out catchy words like freedom and democracy and yet, when freedom and democracy try to break loose, we trample it under foot, proving to anyone paying attention that our words are completely feigned.

    I was talking this over with my wife and she said that she could make a lot more sense out of the predictions in the Bible of the way Israel would end up isolated and about to be destroyed when the end times came.

    Indeed. They are building up more enemies than they will need in order to fulfill prophecy.
