The terrorists who've further inflamed the fires in Israel have caused devastation to innocent people of all religions, harmed the environment and caused pain, agony and death. For what purpose? We are so thankful that Israel does not stand alone, and thankful from friends from near and far who are helping smother the red-hot flames of hatred. It's time to work together toward peace and prosperity.
I'm so shocked and disheartened that the white supremacists have crawled out from under their rocks and are now gleefully celebrating in the open. How did this happen to our country? Or was it always this way (just barely beneath the surface) and I was naive?
It really doesn't matter if Anti-Semitism is coming from the Extreme Left (in the guise of anti-Israel everything, without a care for what any other country is doing) or from the Extreme Right (as good ole' easy to recognize Jew-hatred). It needs to be called out and shut down.
Do I troll anti-Zionist sites? Well...truth be told, on occasion. I'm always curious as to what vile lies get fabricated. It's so ironic that Jews get blamed on those sites for simultaneously 1) allegedly claiming something is anti-Semitic when it's not, and 2) benefitting from the rise in anti-Semitism. Okay, which is it? I reminds me of the Nazi canard that Jews are to be despised because they are allegedly all communists or bankers. Which is it, crazy people? Sigh......
For some reason, this story got little to no coverage (and I'm being generous) in the mainstream media. Something tells me that if the 8 year olds were Israeli children, there would have been mass outrage and mass media coverage. But, it was a big snooze-fest media-wise for some reason (note the sarcasm). But it brings to mind the larger problem of the Palestinian Authority (and Hamas) not preparing their people for peace and instead encouraging violence by glorifying those who murder civilians. And by glorifying, I mean naming schools after them, paying them (and their families), guaranteeing them cushy civil service jobs when they are released from Israeli jails. Not to mention, official Palestinian Authority children's programming that promotes violence. Where is Israel's partner for peace?
I was Googling something the other day about Israel, and I came across something official-looking that claimed that women in Israel couldn't vote! No wonder people have such bizarro ideas about Israel if their facts are bass-ackwards. Vote? Not only to women vote, but they've elected a female Prime Minister (uh, USA, still waiting for that female president....), and they even elect Arab-Israeli women who, well, aren't even pro-Israel. Isn't that a sign of a true democracy?
With the absurdities occurring in the Middle East & the Double Standard applied to Israel, I decided that it was time to either "laugh or cry" & we prefer to laugh. So welcome to my Pro-Israel Cartoon Advocacy project.
