Last week I turned on NPR expecting to hear some news on how the Palestinians were doing in Gaza and the lead first story was an Israeli quoting how Palestinians incited these attacks on Gaza and that everything they do to them is justified in the name of protecting Israel. The interviewer went on to ask how Israel should defend itself and how Israeli citizens were feeling. I think I was shocked for a full minute even though I probably shouldn't be. How do they just take innocent people who are the victims and make them into the criminals? It's just unbelievable. It's like as if you're standing for trial for murder but you were the one that was murdered and your murderer is the one right there prosecuting you! Complete injustice. Complete wrong.
Thank God we believe in an afterlife where full justice will be given to everyone. You know there are some really evil people out there. Now we know why those stricter verses are there in the Quran. They'll definitely get what they deserve in judgement.
And now the main headlines are all about the seminary shooting. While horrible it's as if an Israeli never shot up people praying at a mosque before? A lone gunman obviously mentally disturbed gets article after article, hours and hours of footage of grieving Israelis gathering at the school, mourning, the funeral. And last week's and the current week's attempt at brutal genocide by an entire country's government in Gaza is completely ignored.
Gaza conditions 'at 40-year low'
The groups say a battered, starved Gaza cannot be a peace partner
Conditions in Gaza
Gaza's humanitarian situation is at its worst since Israel occupied the territory in 1967, say UK-based human rights and development groups. They include Amnesty International, Save the Children, Cafod, Care International and Christian Aid. They criticise Israel's blockade on Gaza as illegal collective punishment which fails to deliver security.http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/7280026.stm
