MICHAEL RAMIREZ CARTOON - SELECTIVE OUTRAGE

The only problem here is Ramirez labels the non-response "Arab" world. It should have been "International Community."

"Fear Grips Gaza" is the headline.

Compassion is felt by everyone. No one dances in the streets at this. No one wants this.

Gazan civilians did, however, dance in the streets after 9-11. They felt no compassion for the innocent civilians then.

They dance in the streets when Israeli babies are murdered and mutilated.

They dance in the streets when teenagers are murdered and mutilated on busses and at pizza parlors.

They dance in the streets when their own commit suicide.

They dress up their babies in suicide outfits and teach them to become "martyrs" via Mickey Mouse and Bee Characters.

They are not gripped by "fear"" when their "militants" are murdering -- and they vote for the murderers of Israelis (Jews). They aren't even asked, much less expected, to concern themselves or have "compassion" for those "gripped by fear" in Israel.

No condemnation for this debauched inhumanity. Rather encouragement of it via "understanding" and tacit, or not so tacit approval. No chastisement. No criticism. No encouragement to self-reflection and possibly even shame. Hardly any Reporting of it. What else can be the result but more and more of the same. Obviously the purpose of the "approval."

Where were the massive International Street Demonstrations meant to stop the launching of Rockets on (or suicide bombing of) Israeli "civilians" during the last 8 years -- or ever?

Even if those Demonstrations were solely for the purpose of protecting only their beloved Palestinians, preventing the inevitable military response by Israel?

Where are the outcries and mass International Demonstrations against the use of "human shields?" Oh, I forgot. Desperation causes them to sacrifice their own women and children. They are not, after all, crazed and depraved savages who have lost their humanity. The world Yawns again.

Demonstrations, had they had an effect over time, would have prevented this military action by the Israelis.

Yet the "International Community" takes no responsibility for the cause of this war, that they, yes they, have supported and encouraged from the outset.

The non-Muslim Europeans are loathe to admit that they are, by their encouragement, using the self-named Palestinians as proxies for the vicarious thrill of the expression of their re-liberated hatred of Jews and expiation of their pretended burden of guilt.

"Only" a few Israelis dead from the Rockets. The number of injuries is never given. Hundreds and more mutilated -- children's loss of limbs. Thousands suffering Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. For how many years?

250,000 civilians living under constant threat and bombardment -- 15 seconds from warning to safety. Most don't die because they have built underground shelters to run to. One Million living in Bomb Shelters now.

The death of Israeli citizens isn't encouraged by their own people for "propaganda" purposes -- they see the purpose of their government as to protect them instead. Clearly, an odd concept for Radical Islamists who use their babies as human shields.

Hamas mocks the "weakness" of the Israelis for not defending themselves, and emboldens itself to do more and more war mongering and attacks. When Israel responds in self-defense, Hamas hides behind their women and babies and revels in their deaths.

The International Community does not condemn this as the ultimate in degraded sickness.

HAMAS MOCKS ISRAELI RESTRAINT AFTER END OF SO-CALLED CEASE FIRE WHERE ISRAELIS CEASE AND GAZANS FIRE

http://www.mererhetoric.com/archives/11275247.html

Sound bites of "Disproportionality" and other catch phrases continuously misused while the Media perpetuates the disinformation contained in that misuse.

Years and years of fruitless negotiations, and the International Community asks why the Israelis didn't try negotiations first -- before attempting to stop this by force.

And the Media reports these comments and questions as if they were sane.
