The photo which tells all you should know about the Israel-Gaza conflict

Right: Incoming Palestinian Missiles. Left: Israel’s Iron Dome defensive rocket

Below, the above clip was deemed (by some pre-op YouTube trannies) to be far too true to be carried on the service without interference.

This was underscored by the following observation:

    Almost a million views, and YouTube, in its infinite wisdom, takes it down. Must be positive for Israel, and negative for Hamas.

    Does YouTube have a headquarters in the Gaza Strip? Asking for a friend.

    “W0t’s… uh, the deal?”***
    At the risk of being cloaked as an antisemite, as I have been many times before, how is anything israel/palestine of interest to anyone in this country?

    Tells me it is time to derail the welfare gravy train taking billions of American tax dollars to the Middle East every year, most of it for the benefit of Israel. That includes the billion dollar a year bribe we pay to Egypt to keep them from attacking Israel.

    Nothing in the Middle East is any business of the US government or responsibility of the American taxpayer. Let Russia and China police that pit of vipers, we have wasted way too much blood and gold for nothing.

    On the right, straightforward lines of victimhood and oppression; to the left, coiled tentacles of racism and apartheid.

    Professor Eugene Kontorovich explains how Israel military actions comply with the Geneva Conventions by respecting the principles of distinction and proportionality when engaging military targets in the Gaza Strip.

    I’d like to wade into this matter but I’m not going to. I will ask though….As an American, or rather, as anything but a muslim, would you rather spend a few weeks with the guys on the right side of that photograph or with the guys on the left side?

    You can choose to support Israel or you can lend your support and sympathies to those whose (seeming) sole purpose in life is to wallow in rage, hatred and desire to destroy every vestige of it (and right after that, Christianity and anything remotely related) but I’m not sure anyone can stay neutral about it.

    Jack, that’s a version of, “How about you and him fight?”
    I just don’t give a shit.
    Those animals can kill each other all they want, doesn’t bother me a bit.

    Ghost, I don’t consider it that at all. From some of the comments that were previously posted I got the idea that hatred for Israel had reached an all time high on AD but, maybe a read that wrong.

    I pay pretty close attention to what is going on in the world and the ranks of the Jew Haters are swelling and stinking like a week old dead bull on a blistering hot day in the Deep South. I’m well aware of the various reasons for the emergence of world wide raging antisemitism but I’m not at all in favor of turning away from the citizens of Israel who are the targets of Hamas, the Iranians and every other muslim MF who can squall “Allahu Akbar” and participate in and promote the murderous rages that islam desires for Hebrews.

    Israel has the right to exist, it should be protected with force against having its citizens stand alone against the muslim world and the Jew hating secular world and I believe it really is a battle between right and wrong. I know that their conflicts have been going on for, probably a couple of thousand years but o nation anywhere should have to deal with that kind of insanity without heavy support.

    And I remember too that if these po’assed muslims have their way, after they wrap it up with the Jews the non-Jewish folks in the world will be next. Might not occur so that you and I see it but it will occur.

    I susppect that Hamas, that hides when their rockets are launched from civilian locations (e.g. adjacent to schools, hotels,…..) feels that they have allies in the Democrats who don’t care about the victim populations in cities like Chicago, Detroit, or Baltimore. Both will sacrifice others to get some good propaganda photos.

    “[Country X] has a right to exist”. I disagree. Countries don’t have rights. People do. All countries in the history of the world are born in blood, by conquest, or seizure of the ruins made by the previous inhabitants. A country must be vigorously and continuously defended by its inhabitants, or it will die and be replaced. If the people of a country lose the will to defend it or lose faith in its values, that country will disappear.

    When it comes to countries, there are few rules. Those who would take a country won’t allow themselves to be bound by rules, neither should the defenders. And there is another constant: if the conquerors don’t kill all the men and sell the women and children into slavery, they’ll have forever the nagging thorn in their sides of the conquered fighting to steal the country back.

    Some Jewish wit said, “Everyone seems to hate the Jews, but 5 billion people can’t be wrong!”

    It’s theological. You dislike the Jews because Satan has a place in every mind. God chose the Jewish people because you start somewhere. The Jews are not the exclusives of God – you know that, right? Palestinians are God’s people, if they have faith and do not oppose God. As it is, these Hamas and their cohort who lob area weapons into civilian areas are not (this is controversial; dare I say it?) God’s people! They are the hand of Satan.

    My people are the Germans. Holy fukkin shitt! They gave us: Martin Luther, and Hitler. Charlemagne and Karl Marx. My people are the best and the worst in history. Change my mind…

    John Fleming, I’m not going to play a game of semantics with you. A nation is comprised of people and a nation can not be called a nation or otherwise exist without that element. That nation of people has a right to exist and they should be able to live in peace without threat from without and if that survival calls for support from like minded outsiders, particularly when the enemy are psychopathic monsters, then so be it. A’wight?

    And in regard to your other ‘constant’, imagine just for a second if you were somehow a conqueror and explain why you would kill all of them men (presumably civilians) and where you would find a market
    to sell all of the women and children into slavery.

    That comment makes me tend to think that you’ve been absorbed in Conan flicks and wonder just how grounded and anchored you are in contemporary reality. Sell them into slavery…indeed.
