Ignorance, Insanity or Outright Fascism

"Ignorance, insanity or outright fascism

Bush administration says: Hamas Must End Attacks on Israel, Bush Administration Says Obama is totally silent in the face of the third straight days of Israeli butchery. We know Obama well so far. He is world-renowned for his eloquence. So, are those who talk ignorant or insane because we know that it was Israel which broke ceasefire agreement on Nov 5? See: NOVEMBER 5TH, 2008 - Six Hamas activists killed during Israeli raids in Gaza Strip.

So what is going on. Is it only the US administration that knows the best whereas Turkey says Gaza attacks a crime against humanity , there are Anti-Israeli protests across Europe, Sarkozy calls for immediate halt to Gaza violence , Britain slams ‘unacceptable’ loss of life in Gaza and Asian governments roundly condemn Israel’s ‘genocide’ in Gaza Strip . US Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) is calling for a United Nations investigation into Israel’s attacks on Gaza, criticizing Israel for a disproportionate response to Hamas rocket attacks. “All this was, and is, disproportionate, indiscriminate mass violence in violation of international law,” Kucinich said in a statement. “Israel is not exempt from international law and must be held accountable.”

Three Palestinian children from the Balosha family, of five who were all killed in the same Israeli missile strike, are seen in the morgue before their burial at Kamal Edwan hopsital in Beit Lahiya, northern Gaza Strip, Monday, Dec. 29, 2008.

Israel air strikes spark protests worldwide and Morgues in Gaza are overflowing with bodies. If it doesn’t make any difference to anyone, it is the administrations in Tel Aviv and Washington. Israel considers ground attack and mobilises more troops to erase Gaza off the face of the earth. Even Haaretz writes: Trying to ‘teach Hamas a lesson’ is fundamentally wrong.

On the other hand, the man of ‘change,” Obama, defers to Bush on Gaza genocide. And Bush puts the blame on victims of decades of occupation, aggression, ethnic cleansing, racism and genocide. Is is so that Israel is a morally bankrupt state, which is led and supported by psychopaths. If Hitler and other fascists were psychopaths, then it might be true for the administrations in Tel Aviv and Washington as well, because the rest of the world combined cannot be out of its mind as we can see from the global reaction to the Israeli crimes against humanity so far. If Bush administation has some other solid reason for the nonsense it has spewed thus far or Obama has some eloquent lie, the world has yet to see it. At the moment, they stand as accomplices to the unfloding fascism in our age.
