Dear "Jewish" blogger who denigrates Israel on her blog and believes that Israel's actions cause their problems I challenge you to use that same logic...that same "their actions cause their problems" to answer the following questions:
Hamas is a self-declared enemy of Israel -- a declaration backed up by more than 4,000 rockets fired at Israeli civilian territory.
Does this declaration not qualify in your theory that this should cause a blockage by Israel of any ships seeking passage into Gaza?
In 1962 John Kennedy imposed a naval blockade to prevent a hostile state from acquiring lethal weaponry? Was the US committing an illegal act against the Cubans?
Since Israel traded Sinai with Egypt for peace shouldn't this have resulted in PEACE considering Israel's actions? After all Israel took that piece of land which was barren and used to start a defensive war against Israel, and won it in defensive of it's own nation's survival and built it up, found oil and made refineries and built hotels and gave all that infrastructure to Egypt for PEACE. Simply for PEACE.
In 2005 Israel made GAZA Judenrein. While the "palestinians" demand that they can live in Israel proper they also simultaneously demand that no Jews be allowed to live in Gaza or the "West Bank" Judea and Samaria. Israel pulled out the Jews, forcefully and Americans paid for the greenhouses and other infrastructure that the Israeli's built while there in order to give to the Gazans Muslims/Arabs. I watched the Muslims roll in and burn every building down, houses, greenhouses all of it in a matter of hours out of pure hatred for Jews and anything a Jew touched.
So now the Hamas are the rulers there. Shouldn't Hamas be responsible for their own people? Since Israel gives money to the palis and sends in truckloads of supplies out of Israeli money each day but is forced to give it to the government in Gaza for the people, and the government is Hamas, if the people there are starving [which they are not] isn't it Hamas that is starving their own people? And if the people there voted for The Hamas isn't it their own actions that caused their starving?
According to you it is ALWAYS Israel's fault. It is always Israel's policies to be looked into, deconstructed and blamed. And according to you if I point this out I'm just one of those militant American Jews.
According to you Israel has no legitimate right to defend itself because each step they take you demand that THEY change their ways because it is their actions not the other side that causes what Israel must do to defend the lives -- THE LIVES of their own people, with which you share a bloodline. And with which you will be dragged on the cattle cars with even as you protest how you were on their side against Israel, and shouldn't that save your own life. Pshaw.
