The Palestinians’ Right to Self-Defense

Israel does not have the right to drop 1,000-pound iron fragmentation bombs on Gaza. It does not have the right to pound Gaza with heavy artillery and with shells lobbed from gunboats. It does not have the right to send in mechanized ground units or to target hospitals, schools and mosques, along with Gaza’s water and electrical systems. It does not have the right to displace over 100,000 people from their homes. The entire occupation, under which Israel has nearly complete control of the sea, the air and the borders of Gaza, is illegal.
The unanimous U.S. Senate vote in support of the Israeli attacks on Gaza, the media’s slavish parroting of Israeli propaganda and the Obama administration’s mindless repetition of pro-Israeli clichés have turned us into cheerleaders for Israeli war crimes. We fund and abet these crimes with $3.1 billion a year in military aid to Israel. We are responsible for the slaughter. No one in the establishment, including our most liberal senator, Bernie Sanders, dares defy the Israel lobby. And since we refuse to act to make peace and justice possible we should not wonder why the Palestinians carry out armed resistance.           ***Read full article here***

Israel does not have the right but they have been bombing Gaza and invading Palestinian land for decades. So, meaningless drivel and blah, blah, blah. Who is going to stop them? The U.N.? The U.S.? France? U.K.? Germany? Or perhaps India, China, Japan? Get real. They are already controlled by the Jews due to the snakes controlling the banking idustry of those nations. Russia is on the precipice of being total Jew run as well. Iran is the only nation that could which is why Israel is screaming for the blood of Iran for the last 15 years to ensure they have no enemy powerful enough to strangle the snakes and cut off their heads!
If the world truly cared, they would JOIN with Iran to defeat these diseased Jews from the planet.
So, Israel has no right but without anyone stopping the real slaughter, all the words mean nothing.
Thus, all the world's a stage and we all know who runs the theatrical business!

Wow phyllis, I could not agree with you more and thanks for your eloquence. Russia and Iran. I so hope that Putin is making the right choices, but he is right now backed in a corner it seems.
