Double Standard on Fighting Terrorists
Laura: Why is it ok for the French to launch airstrikes in Mali but wrong for Israel to strike at hamas terrorists in their own backyard who were firing missiles into Israel? Once again we see a double standard applied to the Jewish state. The French are extreme hypocrites as is the rest of the world. Had the Israelis fought hamas until hamas was wiped out, the world would be screaming “genocide” and “war crimes”. But Israel merely launched tit for tat air strikes against hamas rocket launchers and even this limited measure was castigated. And Israel had far more justification given that hamas was firing rockets directly into Israel. Keep in mind that Britain’s PM Cameron angrily threatened Israel that it would lose Britain’s support if it launched a ground war in Gaza. Meanwhile France has ground troops in Mali. What’s good for other nations is wrong for Israel. I’m sick of the obscene double standard the Jewish state is subjected to. And also this is getting limited media attention in contrast to Israel being held under a microscope over every one of its military operations. Israeli military actions are treated as terrible but military intervention is ok if its done by the French.
Israel’s UN envoy: If Mali is on France’s doorstep, Gaza is in our living room
At Security Council debate, US ambassador slams Netanyahu’s E1 building plans, stresses Palestine is not a state
Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations on Wednesday compared France’s military intervention in northern Africa with Israel’s fight against Islamic terrorism from Gaza.
“France’s foreign minister said this month that his country was fighting to prevent the creation of an Islamist terrorist enclave ‘at the doorstep of France and Europe.’ If Mali is on France’s doorstep, Gaza is in Israel’s living room,” Ron Prosor said at the UN Security Council’s monthly open debate on the Middle East.
“Make no mistakes: France’s principled stand should be commended. We only ask that France and all the countries who are supporting its principled stand today, support Israel tomorrow when we fight Islamic terrorism on our borders.” Continue reading
