Israel-Hamas Conflict or 'Doth How Some Protest Too Much'

As the situation with Israel and Hamas goes on n' on, most everyone seems annoyed..

Wall Street and investors are annoyed because the soulless who make their living in this deplorable and unethical field want to keep making endless profits

And in order to do that, short of market rigging and suckling upon swollen 'Fed' fed QE teats, they need Certainty..

And no military conflict especially in the Middle East ever is certain

And of course all the Arabs and Muslims are up in arms..
Well the common populaces are; the ones filled with deep bigotry and hate toward anyone who believes in the Hebrew faith, going back not simply generations but having its origins in the Quran

Some holy book gems include:

[3.67] Ibrahim (Abraham) was not a Jew nor a Christian but he was (an) upright (man), a Muslim, and he was not one of the polytheists.

* Thus being Jewish or Christian is to be lowly in their eyes

[5.33] The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His apostle and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned

[9.30] And the Jews say: Uzair is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them

Yep.. love and peace..

Now the Middle Eastern nations are a bit quieter..

They know what a danger and menace Hamas is.. Burrowing tunnels like moles or rats with the purpose of lobbying missiles over the border and killing as many people as they can.

Egypt the other day found and destroyed seven such excavations.

Hamas loves using its own people as human shields which is why they place their weapons in homes and schools and when those entities become targets and innocents are killed, they can scream its all the Israelis' fault.

And of course anti-Semites are very unhappy..

These are the ones who publicly deny they hate Jewish people.. They only are against the policies of 'Israel' and 'Zionists' as if you can detach one from the other..

That is sort of saying one doesn't hate English people.. Only 'Anglos' and 'Saxon' and 'Jutes'

And so they will side with the Palestinians and terrorists and really anyone who goes after Israel not out of any sincere empathy or understanding of the situation..
Its more the axiom 'The enemy of my Enemy is my friend'

People like that love to throw up in the air that Israel gets financial assistance from the US as if that's a crime..

Guess Egypt, Jordan, South Africa and about two dozen other nations on Earth the US gives taxpayer money to should be condemned too, yes?

Funny how they're usually not..

We'll never understand that level of hate..
And of course the President isn't too happy with things..

In spite of happily taking all those millions in donations from Jewish Democrats, Obama is personally as fond of Israel and its leadership as Cinderella's step mother was of her and he'd love nothing more than to knock them down a couple pegs..

When he's not busy playing endless golf, hobnobbing with celebs and putting a down payment on a large home in California like his most recent trip that is..

Israel is the Rodney Dangerfield of nations..
Yep.. 'No Respect..'

It is the only democracy in the entire Middle East and the only thing close to a friend the United States has in that part of the world..

Guess its more important our enemies hate us a little less than our long-standing political and military ally gets anything remotely close to public unwavering support

But there's always a double standard where Israel is concerned
We're still trying to figure what other nation in the history of mankind has voluntarily given up land its won via warfare back to the enemy due to political pressure

Have the British ever thought about relinquishing the Falkland Islands back to Argentina?  It took great political pressure and post WWII economic weakness for them to give India back..

Or Poland giving its land back to Germany and Russia since it took territory from both countries post-World War I to form its nation?

Or how about the US giving back Puerto Rico to Spain or any part of the Southwest US to Mexico?
America has many allies around the world due to political bullying and economic arm-twisting, but it has few sincere friends..

Britain is one..  So is Canada and Australia..

And Israel..

And one need not be Jewish to understand and appreciate that..
So who to root for in this conflict?

Simple..  If you're American, you support your friend..

And if you're not, you support democracy over terrorism..

Unless of course the hatred for an ethnic people who share the same religion to which Jesus identified Himself is too deep and irrational to see things any other way..

Then you root for the enemy of your Enemy.
