What are we doing?
Graphic: Press TV
I’m getting too old for all of this. I didn’t serve my country to see it handed over to a country that will turn on us at the drop of a hat if they think we have what they might want.
I can’t even enjoy my morning coffee with my friends at the local café because half of them are quoting the bible and claiming God will punish us if we don’t support Israel, the other half are screaming bloody murder (literally) over the slaughter of the Palestinians while we watch. I am giving up on religion because I think everyone involved in it is demonstrating publicly that they are mentally incompetent. They have been brainwashed since childhood into believing the most ridiculous of stories based on magic, mysticism, invisible beings, and the hope that if they just say the right things, believe in things that common sense tells them cannot possibly be true, somehow they will gain entry into an invisible utopia and get to meet their lifelong invisible “friend”. I was one of them. I know what I speak. In today’s world, this magical thinking has allowed many of these uber-religious people to become enthralled at the idea of slaughtering the Palestinians.
Ask yourself what kind of “Christian” you are that this would be what your “God” would want?
After all, weren’t the Jewish people picked on throughout history? Didn’t they suffer through the Holocaust? Yes, they were and they did. But apparently being given a parcel of land that belonged historically to someone else, was not enough. Since that gift was bestowed on them, they have launched more than 300 attacks against neighboring countries. They have antagonized, threatened, attacked, harassed, bombed every country around them, and generally caused upheaval in the region. But its all good: they are God’s chosen people. Really…..
While the US government tried to drum up support for attacking Syria for “human rights” violations, and subsequently tried to find a way to insert our military into the Ukraine uprising, Israel continued its genocide of the Palestinians. And our government and numerous so-called “Christian” churches have cheered them on. From what the boys at the café told me, their God loves nothing more than blood and lots of it.
I have to ask the question: What God is it that you believe in that would condone, desire or enjoy the massacre of an entire population in order to be satisfied?
These are my friends, some I served with in the military. While some of them may suffer from ptsd, I think I must be suffering from ptrd……….post traumatic religious disorder. Enough of this foolishness. Enough with the magical thinking. I think I need to find a new invisible friend, one who doesn’t play favorites and one who doesn’t relish the idea of bloody conflagrations.
As a country we have attacked and destroyed, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya in just the past decade. While we claim love of God and country, we assist, encourage, and help fund the complete destruction of the Palestinians at the hands of the Israeli’s. From the pulpits of mega churches and even small community churches we are told that the Jewish people are God’s chosen people. Even if this were true, and at this point in time I do have my doubts, the problem appears to be that no one said what God might have chosen them for.
Meanwhile, our government in collusion with Israel, continues to paint Hamas, as a terrorist organization. This is kind of like pointing out the speck in your neighbor’s eye, while ignoring the timber in your own. Is the Israeli Mossad not equally as terroristic if not more so? Why have we not labeled them as a terrorist group? Why is no one prosecuted for funding a known terrorist organization known as the Mossad?
Oh! I forgot myself there for a minute. Israel is our friend. The Israeli’s are God’s favorites. When the Israeli’s commit genocide, murder, and attack others its all okay.
Zio-Nazis run wild in Occupied Palestine
Press TV Friday 11th July 2014
Yesterday we learned that three Israeli suspects have confessed to burning to death Palestinian teenager Mohammed Abu Khdair. The killers even re-enacted their grisly deed for police.
The Western media is treating this incident as an isolated outrage. It is not. During the past 14 years, Israelis have murdered one Palestinian child every four days, on average.
During the second half of June, while the Zionist-dominated global media relentlessly hyped the “three kidnapped Israeli teens” story, several Palestinians were shot to death by the IDF, including 15-year-old Mohammed Dudin, who was murdered in Dura on June 20th. Corporate media coverage of the killing of Mohammed Dudin was negligible. To the mainstream media, the lives of Israeli Jews are priceless, while those of Palestinians are worth little or nothing.
