The Obscenity of Golda Mier and her contemporaries; the makings of a special, uniquie people:

A Unique People

"We will have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us." —former Israeli prime minister Golda Meir

 

This cartoon appeared on the Opinion Page of the Tuesday, January 6, 2009, Times-Standard with the words printed underneath that said “Don’t be so quick to judge others.” A second one appeared Sunday, January 11, 2009. What makes Israeli children more valuable than Palestinian children? American children?

Don’t be so quick to judge others

These are words that the Times-Standard editorial staff and all the businesses that support this paper should take to heart. No human rational that is not corrupt, perverted and totally degenerate justifies the brutal, wanton, unmitigated butchery of innocent civilians and then blames the victims. What the Jews are doing to the Palestinians totally supported and legitimized by the sewer-scum of humanity is insanity. This is the rapist cutting the throat of their uncooperative, and resistive victim that they just ravaged. No honest American Christian can justify our country’s criminal conduct in this so-called war on terror with it’s unconditional support of criminal terrorist government’s assaults on humanity.  Aside from the above, some of the truth behind what’s really going on is touched on in this Guardian.co.uk article. “Israel looks to drive out Hamas.” Remember the words of the first Christian?

Do not judge, or you too will be judged.  For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

Those words were directed at the Jews. Unfortunately, they, with rare exception, never learned the lesson and neither has all their radical and degenerate supporters. Even the most powerful nation on this earth cannot escape that judgment. ADDENDUM :: Thursday, January 8, 2009

Justify this if you can: UN: 257 Palestinian children killed in Gaza

An Unnecessary WarToles Cartoon

By Jimmy Carter January 08, 2009

— – I know from personal involvement that the devastating invasion of Gaza by Israel could easily have been avoided.

After visiting Sderot last April and seeing the serious psychological damage caused by the rockets that had fallen in that area, my wife, Rosalynn, and I declared their launching from Gaza to be inexcusable and an act of terrorism. Although casualties were rare (three deaths in seven years), the town was traumatized by the unpredictable explosions. About 3,000 residents had moved to other communities, and the streets, playgrounds and shopping centers were almost empty. Mayor Eli Moyal assembled a group of citizens in his office to meet us and complained that the government of Israel was not stopping the rockets, either through diplomacy or military action.

Knowing that we would soon be seeing Hamas leaders from Gaza and also in Damascus, we promised to assess prospects for a cease-fire. From Egyptian intelligence chief Omar Suleiman, who was negotiating between the Israelis and Hamas, we learned that there was a fundamental difference between the two sides. Hamas wanted a comprehensive cease-fire in both the West Bank and Gaza, and the Israelis refused to discuss anything other than Gaza.

We knew that the 1.5 million inhabitants of Gaza were being starved, as the U.N. special rapporteur on the right to food had found that acute malnutrition in Gaza was on the same scale as in the poorest nations in the southern Sahara, with more than half of all Palestinian families eating only one meal a day.

Palestinian leaders from Gaza were noncommittal on all issues, claiming that rockets were the only way to respond to their imprisonment and to dramatize their humanitarian plight. The top Hamas leaders in Damascus, however, agreed to consider a cease-fire in Gaza only, provided Israel would not attack Gaza and would permit normal humanitarian supplies to be delivered to Palestinian citizens.

After extended discussions with those from Gaza, these Hamas leaders also agreed to accept any peace agreement that might be negotiated between the Israelis and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who also heads the PLO, provided it was approved by a majority vote of Palestinians in a referendum or by an elected unity government.

Since we were only observers, and not negotiators, we relayed this information to the Egyptians, and they pursued the cease-fire proposal. After about a month, the Egyptians and Hamas informed us that all military action by both sides and all rocket firing would stop on June 19, for a period of six months, and that humanitarian supplies would be restored to the normal level that had existed before Israel’s withdrawal in 2005 (about 700 trucks daily).

We were unable to confirm this in Jerusalem because of Israel’s unwillingness to admit to any negotiations with Hamas, but rocket firing was soon stopped and there was an increase in supplies of food, water, medicine and fuel. Yet the increase was to an average of about 20 percent of normal levels. And this fragile truce was partially broken on Nov. 4, when Israel launched an attack in Gaza to destroy a defensive tunnel being dug by Hamas inside the wall that encloses Gaza.

On another visit to Syria in mid-December, I made an effort for the impending six-month deadline to be extended. It was clear that the preeminent issue was opening the crossings into Gaza. Representatives from the Carter Center visited Jerusalem, met with Israeli officials and asked if this was possible in exchange for a cessation of rocket fire. The Israeli government informally proposed that 15 percent of normal supplies might be possible if Hamas first stopped all rocket fire for 48 hours. This was unacceptable to Hamas, and hostilities erupted.

After 12 days of “combat,” the Israeli Defense Forces reported that more than 1,000 targets were shelled or bombed. During that time, Israel rejected international efforts to obtain a cease-fire, with full support from Washington. Seventeen mosques, the American International School, many private homes and much of the basic infrastructure of the small but heavily populated area have been destroyed. This includes the systems that provide water, electricity and sanitation. Heavy civilian casualties are being reported by courageous medical volunteers from many nations, as the fortunate ones operate on the wounded by light from diesel-powered generators.

The hope is that when further hostilities are no longer productive, Israel, Hamas and the United States will accept another cease-fire, at which time the rockets will again stop and an adequate level of humanitarian supplies will be permitted to the surviving Palestinians, with the publicized agreement monitored by the international community. The next possible step: a permanent and comprehensive peace.

The writer was president from 1977 to 1981. He founded the Carter Center, a nongovernmental organization advancing peace and health worldwide, in 1982.

  1. Um, not to sound critical of your statement, but remember two things about this present conflict:
    1,) It was Hamas that broke their own treaty by sending 800 rockets every day into innocent parts of Israel.
    (http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/opinion/sfl-pbmail688pndec28,0,5673096.story)

    2.) Israel is fighting terrorists who use humans as shields. If any die, it’s not because Israel doesn’t care, it’s because they have been forced into the conflict.

    Another thing to note is if someone threatened the very lives of your family (kids, if you have any) with guns, would you not do everything in your power to stop them? Israel is. In fact, they have split Gaza so as to be able to bargain for peace.

  2. Clifton, this is the rational of a terrorist.

    Your statements are unfounded propaganda. Israel is NOT about “bargaining for peace.” Israel is about total domination and submission; surrender or die.

  3. Joe Blow, please return the favor by giving me credible sources of your opinion.

    This way, I’ll understand both where your coming from and that you aren’t simply speaking out (pardon the expression) of arrogance.

  4. First, the Joe Blow Report is NOT about opinions. Opinions are basically all lies. That is what your first comment was, unfounded opinions.

    You ask me to do you “the favor” of “giving” you “credible sources.” If that is what you want then that is what you should have done. Done me the favor of providing credible sources for what you said in the first place.

    The obscenity of you and your comment is that you equate Israel’s “care” for their wanton, criminal butchery of innocent women and children.

    I apologize for legitimizing you by responding. My blog speaks for itself.

  5. Umm, don’t be so hasty.
    Opinions by definition are ‘A belief or conclusion held with confidence but not substantiated by positive knowledge or proof’ (Answers.com)

    Now as confident as you are (which is a good thing), you must have something other than yourself to verify your statements.

    Joe, your contradiction only stems from the lack of research. This is normal. Don’t offended, just find a credible source (something other than another blog, like an institution or scientist).

    This way, you become wiser when you communicate with others.

    Yours Sincerely,

  6. Isn’t this lad (I guess it’s a “lad”) sweet as peachy cream?

    The self-righteous arrogance of this shallow, cowardly and corrupt attitude is at the root of why Democratic peoples can brutalize, rape and wage war on innocent women and children, butcher them by the hundreds if not thousands, and call it justifiable “self-defense.”

  7. Rape? Brutalize (not in interrogations, since that is another discussion)?

    Where did you read this? Can I have the source(s)?

    P.S. I write here because I take an interest in seeing others speak from knowledge, not themselves.

  8. This has become redundant.

    You want sources then give sources. You speak rote terrorist propaganda and got the temerity to demand “sources” from me. You read or watch the news lately? The truth is there for any moron to see. When you learn to practice what you preach come back and demonstrate your brilliant, educated intelligence; “speak from knowledge”. Maybe I’ll respond, but don’t bet on it.

    The Joe Blow Report is NOT about worthless opinions, but observations. Joe Blow is not interested in trying to think for or communicate with the inane ignoramous. He’s certainly not interested in debating lies or justifying false accusations. Joe tries to follow Jesus’ admonition when dealing with people like, “Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces.”

  9. Worth noting is that Joe Blow accommodated Clifton of Hesperia’s commentary to exemplify the following root cause behind American and Jewish attitudes that justify conduct against fellow humans not even animals commit. Clifton thought to judge me and by so doing, identified himself as a racist. Because Clifton is so “unique” he presumed to tell me how I should think and would talk to him on my blog. This tragic reality explains why there shall be no “two-state” solution in Palestine. It also helps to explain why the Jews or war-mongering Israelis, if you prefer, are not waging war against some “terrorist organization,” but on all the people’s of Palestine.

    This comment that defines the “Clifton’s” of this world was taken from Howard Zinn’s recent speech on “War and Social Justice:

    One of the elements in our mindset is the idea, somehow, that the United States is exceptional. In the world of social science, in, you know, that discipline called social science, there’s actually a phrase for it. It’s called American exceptionalism. And what it means is the idea that the United States is unique in the world, you know, that we are different, that we—not just different, we’re better. Right? We are better than other people. You know, our society is better than other societies. This is a very dangerous thing to think. When you become so arrogant that you think you are better and different than other countries in the world, then that gives you a carte blanche to do nasty things. You can do nasty things, because you’re better. You’re justified in doing those things, because, yeah, you’re—we’re different.

    Another definition of “exceptionalism” is essentially “racism”. Wikipedia says “According to the Oxford English Dictionary, racism is a belief or ideology that all members of each racial group possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially to distinguish it as being either superior or inferior to another racial group or racial groups.” [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racism]

    A large group of people that fit this description of “Exceptional” are “Evangelical and Fundamental so-call Christians.” These “SAVED” people are strictly limited to who and what they are and absolutely NOTHING more. Their minds and hearts are closed to God and humanity. Jesus spoke of these contemporary people when he addressed his condemnation upon their Jewish brethren:

    “Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition. You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you: ‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men.'”

    Or, as Joe Blow might say: “Worthless opinions.”

  10. For anyone that might be interested in Clifton Houser’s diatribe, he made two more posts. One got caught by WordPress and the other one, his last, was stopped by me. I may post them later when I address this issue in one of my articles.

    What is it about people that they are so inured to reality that they never shut-up long enough to realize they are dead in the water (not going anywhere or making any progress)? Clifton Houser’s manifest and demonstrated attitude is the classic example of the corrupt, amoral, degenerate and immoral Elitist prima donna that defines most Americans and Jews; the terminal sickness that justifies the wanton butchery of fellow human beings.

    As a side note, a rather amusing one too, everything this hypocrite tells me I should do is exactly what he does. The amazing part of this is that he is incapable of understanding that he is guilty of doing the very thing he accuses me of doing. The reason this guy shall not post on my blogs is because he thinks to talk to me like a f****** mongrel dog and because I respond to him he thinks he is justified to continue his personal diatribe (a bitter, sharply abusive denunciation, attack, or criticism). He talks to me in front of the world the same way the Jews, Israelis if you prefer, talk to the Palestinian people, as if they have the god-given right. People do not come into my home and dictate to me, neither do they treat my home and property like garbage and when I catch the neighbor’s dog crapping on my lawn he won’t have a dog anymore! The same goes for my blogs.

    If this matter wasn’t so tragic it would be hilarious! It is tragic because there can only be ONE solution. The occupying people shall be eliminated. Not by any force of man, but by God. History proves that they are without any moral, ethical or legal legitimacy or right to exist as a national entity. They exist by simple force of power and the Universe has judged and decreed them wanting. President Barack Obama and his collective of advisors and sycophants had better make the most of what time they have to make peace in this world for America and Americans, if they can, otherwise this country is slated for the same fate as Israel. …and Clifton Houser of Hesperia.

    Apparently my comment to this sorry excuse for a human being that thinks he lives in his own mind applies to you. I modified the gender, I guess, to apply to you. Here’s the rest of what I said:

    Isn’t this gal (I guess it’s a “gal”) sweet as peachy cream?

    The self-righteous arrogance of this shallow, cowardly and corrupt attitude is at the root of why Democratic peoples can brutalize, rape and wage war on innocent women and children, butcher them by the hundreds if not thousands, and call it justifiable “self-defense.”

    I am glad to see that you got my point. Thanks.
