Unbelievable Happenings!

Israeli Strike in Gaza Kills at Least 11, Including Children

GAZA CITY — Israeli forces killed at least 11 people, including several children, in a single airstrike that destroyed a home here on Sunday, as Israel pressed its bombardment of the Gaza Strip for a fifth day, deploying warplanes and naval vessels to pummel the coastal enclave. [article on hold]

Five days of horror and tragedy. Take a look at this:

Five days of children dying, parents weeping, funerals being held and hospitals brimming with the wounded (and dead). And what are the Muslims doing?
Praying? Collecting donations? Turning a blind eye? Turning the other way round?
What else?

[Me included]. This is as much to myself as it is to the rest of the Muslim world. Here you've got a Muslim leader, of an Islamic party...

pledging that his country won't leave Gaza along to fend for itself. Really? What is there beyond this mere lip service, I ask? What has he actually done? He's the "nearest neighbor!" ... He has an army. [It's a separate question who controls their army]. But really. It's been five days Mr. Morsi. Where are all your promises before you got elected? Condemning Israel's attacks is the exact same thing as former PM Yousuf Raza Gilani condemning drone attacks in Pakistan. Mere movement of lips/tongue, nothing more. 

[article contd.]
The airstrike, which the Israeli military said was meant to kill a Palestinian militant involved in the recent rocket attacks, was the deadliest operation to date and would no doubt weigh on negotiations for a possible cease-fire. Among the dead were five women and four small children, The Associated Press reported, citing a Palestinian health official.
Two media offices were also hit on Sunday, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel warned of a “significant” expansion in the onslaught, which has already killed over 50 people, many of them civilians.

Important bits are in bold. Now check out the statements of this particular man in Bangkok right now. 

Speaking on Sunday from Bangkok, President Obama condemned missile attacks by Palestinian fighters in Gaza and defended Israel’s right to protect itself. 

Big surprise there.

“There’s no country on earth that would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders,” 

Mr. President. Have you glanced at this piece of news? 

Israeli Strike in Gaza Kills at Least 11, Including Children

It's an authentic report by your very own NYTimes. Not any other "biased" media source. So which country are you talking about? Please check your facts, wouldn't you? If no country on this earth can tolerate missiles raining down and killing its children, then you should be fully supportive of Palestinians' rights to defend themselves from Israel. You contradict yourself.

Mr. Obama said in his first public comments since the violence broke out. “We are fully supportive of Israel’s right to defend itself.”

Oh yeah? Defend itself from 50 year old ladies, women and small babies? Defend itself by attacking media outlets that broadcast their attrocities? Funny how people completely change the fundamental definitions of human rights, when it's not in their own interest. This is the media building they bombed.

And this is the 10-month old, they killed, using their right to defend themselves.
