Comes The Antistate

geoffff


Turning and turning in the widening gyre


With the Arab world and especially "the Palestinians", what has come to be called the "international community" has always favoured the men of action over the nation builders.

Terror, random murder, hate mongering, incitement,  hostage taking, extortion, blackmail  ... these have their own rewards in the Middle East and are encouraged by the truth that they work, especially when deployed against Israel and the West.

What's more, these tactics can achieve much at little cost. 

Hezbollah comprehensively proved that all those years ago in Lebanon when it forced the evacuation of US Marines and French troops, there to intervene in a civil war that then had not long flared, to restore the peace. Hezbollah managed this world changing victory with the loss of a couple of commandeered vehicles, a big bunch of explosives and a few dead martyrs. 

From their standpoint, free. No loss at all.

These resources are in abundance. They flow in the streets and drop from the trees. The wells will always be at capacity no matter how much is drawn. Lives in particular are easy to replace. The death rate in Gaza is among the lowest in the world, the birth rate perhaps the highest and half the population is under fourteen.

This equilibrium, this dynamic state of long term terrorism is "sustainable" by the most exacting standards, even of the hemp bag and Bollinger wing of the Australian Greens. 

So they kept on doing it, others learned, did it too and do it still sometimes on a grand scale.  

This is a death cult. At any time but especially right now an Arab child in Gaza has much more value as a photogenic corpse than alive, if her death can be linked to the Jews, because of the impact in the "street" and on the "international community". The result of this is there to see. 

They keep on doing it even if they have to stage it.  

Now the UN and the "international community" are hand wringing and urging"the parties to stop fighting and start talking".  Ban Ki-moon used those words. Hamas is rewarded by recognition and an implied place at the table and is duly strengthened.

It's called behaviour reinforcement. 

A perverted culture of victim hood, of eternal suffering and injustice beyond measure and so chronic that it gathers strength with the passing of the generations and brings forth and defines a new nation and a new kind of nation. 

Palestine is a nation that grieves and fights for its own state. But it is a new kind of nation, the first, and its national struggle is for a new kind of state. A state that has at the core of the purpose for constitution the destruction and supersession of another state. 

"Palestine" is not a state. It can never exist until Israel ceases to.  It is more accurately an antistate. The first in all of history.

If that sounds like an abomination then perhaps it is. This report is how the army of an antistate fights its war for national liberation. The army of "Palestine" uses these tactics because they work. Try to keep in mind these kids are those of the fighters. 

We have to say this is something new. Another threshold is crossed. There is nothing that compares to this.

Soldier: Terrorists Charged with Babies in Hand
Shocking testimony from hospitalized soldiers reveals extent of Hamas’ use of children as human shields.

Children in Gaza
Children in Gaza


Wounded soldiers have given shocking testimony regarding Hamas’ use of young children as human shields.

Parents of wounded soldiers spoke to Kol Yisrael on Tuesday and shared some of the disturbing stories they had heard from their sons. They said soldiers have repeatedly seen young children in Sheijaya, Gaza, be sent out into the streets with guns to try to attack IDF troops.

One parent reported that terrorists had run at IDF soldiers with a gun in one hand and a baby in the other, apparently in hopes that the soldiers would see the child and hold their fire. If soldiers fired, the parent added, the child’s death could be used as propaganda against Israel.

“They’re continuing the same trick of using children as human shields, just as they did in Operation Cast Lead,” one father said. Women are used as human shields as well, he added.

He expressed frustration at figures on the Israeli far-left who have accused IDF soldiers of committing war crimes. Israel’s soldiers do everything they can to avoid hurting innocent people, he said.

The parents’ testimony joins previous evidence of similar crimes, including reports from UNRWA that a school building was used to store rockets, and a video showing terrorists using an ambulance to escape the site of an attack.

Hamas has openly boasted about the "success" of its strategy of using civilians as human shields during Operation Protective Edge.

Pat Condell Is Still Dead Set Right

geoffff

This continues the theme of the curse of being forced to live history over and over again. A condemnation that is earned by the big, lazy and ignorant and caste off on the small and innocent.

'plus ca change, plus ca reste la meme chose', if you like


The Joint saw and posted this video when it was first uploaded less than two years ago. It is confronting how much has been forgotten by so many in such a short time.


It has just been emailed to me again from someone in Israel struck by its currency and who comments , "Why is it that only he--and a very few others--can perceive the truth of this conflict?"


The video screams to be heard again right now.  


This is Pat Condell in November 2012 commenting on the renewed bombardment of Israel by the criminal regime in Gaza, what is Hamas, what it wants, how it only can  be dealt with and the hopeless, bottomless, blind depravity of the Western liberal/left who reflexively take the side of the enemies of Israel and the West.


There was not a word wasted then. There is not a word you would trim or add now.

Chris Murphy Is Out. Second Depraved Creep To Declare In A Day.

geoffff


Will No One Care About The Children?
Not If They Are Jewish. Or Murdered By Hamas. Or Not His. 

Quiet please.  Chris Murphy has twitted.

A man who can say this in public has discarded even the pretence of bullshit dressed up as givashit for the victims of war, terrorism and genocide. He doesn't know the meaning of these words. Worse, he doesn't care about the meaning of the words. 

The truth is he doesn't give a stuff about such things and if you ever needed proof that Murphy does not give a flying slab of dead meat least of all about the "Palestinians", especially the kids, it is right here. This is about something else entirely.

Murphy is a man whose idea of public comment is a shove it up your face lie. The lie of the bully. No rational functioning mind is deployed here. Just a spitting overcooked stew of supercilious hypocrisy and bigotry. Ignorance is not only no excuse it is not even a plausible explanation. Cowardice is closer to the mark.

As if the IDF enjoys doing what it does. As if they target civilians.  As if there is not now a new standard on getting civilians in a war zone out of harm's way especially in the face of a determined enemy battle strategy to push them into harm's way.

Warning missiles for crying out loud. 

This is right in the middle of a modern battle and of course no one has any idea what is going on except perhaps the opposing commands. Everything else is noise and in Gaza it is Hamas that controls the noise, including a fair share of the explosions. 

Hamas is the source of all that the media has on how many casualties there are in Gaza and how many were civilians or fighting in the terrorist militias.  Hamas is the source on how many were children. Nearly always Hamas is the source on how they were killed.

This might perhaps trip a light tinkle of some distant warning bell over the horizon , you would hope, in these, hardened,  cynical minds. Murphy. Carlton. Lyons. Not a bit of it. When it comes to just this one issue, the masters of life weary skepticism seamlessly change into the big mothers of credulity.

There is no doubt that there is plenty of emotion in what Murphy thinks and says. It is a visceral thing with people like Murphy.

Brains and reason have little to do with it, it has nothing to do with the victims, past and present, and most of all nothing to do with confronting at any level the evil that causes all this.


The driving emotion is not empathy but a deep settled blinkered loathing that may well have crossed the line into some kind of impulsive focused hatred. It allows for no contemplation or nuance and certainly Murphy has passed into the territory of the bigot; but he is hardly alone in Sydney to occupy that territory.

He would not even have noticed when the neighbours first took to wearing pointy hats and covering their faces and setting fire to crosses.

Likely he is a regular on the Sydney new age BBQ circuit himself by now... darn dang it. That snide little piece of gratuitous filth he twitted would be routine dinner chit chat in his circles by now. Biting laser wit or searing razor irony or something. 1930's style. 

You might wonder if he has fitted out yet for the cloak, hood and riding boots. They say the initiation ceremony will take even him by surprize.

Murphy is a bloke who is more than happy with a scapegoat. That's all he needs in fact. Men like Murph have always been more than happy with a scapegoat. Any goat will do in a crisis for people like the Murph but a scapegoat makes them comprehensively content. One breed of scapegoat in particular has always had these guys looking foolish and drooling. Like a scene out of Ryan's Daughter.     

We have on self display here a man, for whatever reason,  crippled of a normal range of human emotion and for that matter reason. It may well be a contagion. Much of the bleeding you see is just for show and probably always has been. Murph has just shown us what he is about. 

Mike Carlton Finally Outs Himself As A Depraved Little Creep.

geoffff

The death porn lite is from Mike Carlton Lite.

Images of kids killed or badly bashed around by Hamas in the course of the gutless war crime of using the civilian population it dominates as a shield while it carries out the war crime of attacking the civilian population of Israel.

Hamas stores weapons in schools and in residences and mosques from where it operates. It has vast tunnel networks under residential areas that it uses to attack Israel.  Its major headquarters is under Gaza's hospital.  

And Carlton says it is Netanyahu who is the war criminal.

There is no sense in faint flattery of this public intellectual.  Carlton is a depraved little creep. 

Everything Carlton, Reuters, UNICEF and every media outlet, politician,  UN agency or NGO has reported about the number of "Palestinian" dead and injured, and how many are civilians or children, or how or when they were wounded or killed,  is sourced ultimately entirely to Hamas. It is Hamas who controls the tap on this flow of this information and of course Hamas will say anything to advance its war goals.

The cowered people of Gaza will say what ever they believe Hamas expects of them as all people under the boot of a totalitarian regime will do.   

Carlton and all the rest do not have the integrity to declare that the source for all they say is Hamas.
