A Desperate Plea from an Israeli Jew
“My name is Eran Efrati, I am Jewish, a veteran of the Israeli Defense Forces, and a 7th generation Jerusalemite. What I’ve seen in Israel over the last few weeks is beyond anything I have witnessed in my life. I’ve seen terrified Palestinian children in Hebron and Halhul, sitting on the ruins of their homes..."
If one does a web search of a then Illinois state senator Barack Obama and the late Columbia University Professor Edward Said, he or she will come across a photo of Obama, his wife Michelle, Said and his wife Mariam all sitting together at a May 1998 Arab community event in Chicago at which Said gave the keynote speech. Before Obama became president there was some hope he at least saw the Palestinian people as full human beings. Yet that dinner was perhaps the apex of his solidarity with the Palestinian cause in his political career.
President Obama has been a coward in regards to the plight of the Palestinian people ever since.
The Hollywood-style barbarism behind the 'strategic' killing of Palestinians
Beyond the images of dead and maimed children coming out of Gaza, the most repugnant pictures have been of Israelis cheering on the slaughter from a bordering hill. There was a cinema-type atmosphere close to the town of Sderot all last week as, near enough to see the missile flashes and hear the blasts, the excited audience clapped each lethal strike. Successive days and nights of live carnage were accompanied by drinks and popcorn. Danish newspaper Kristeligt Dagblad described the macabre gatherings as 'most closely resembling the front row of a reality war theatre'.
