Seeking Even Handed Accusations

No Such Thing as a “Fair Fight”

A writer I appreciate at Facebook tells us this on 12/17/2017Steve Feldman
December 14 at 11:41am · A new low for NBC: A tear-jerker video that amounts to a dramatic propaganda slanderous attack against Israel and the Jewish People. 
True media malfeasance!
No mention that over the past two decades the palestinian Arabs fired about 20,000 rockets at Israeli communities, or the attack tunnels, kidnappings and other terrorism. No mention that Egypt also has a blockade of Gaza, or that the palestinian-Arabs refuse to pay their electric bill. Also no mention of Gaza’s luxury resorts, restaurants and shopping malls, or that they fire rockets from schools, hospitals and residential areas.
None of it.
We are told Gaza is a “giant prison” yet the brother in this video magages to go to school in North Dakota, yet we are told the younger brother is trapped in Gaza. Hmm?.
I urge you to watch as much of the video as you can handle.
I STRONGLY URGE you to call or write to NBC News or its owner, Comcast Corporation. We must not ignore these journalistic attacks nor respond with apathy.
When you contact them, please be civil.

List of Palestinian suicide attacks

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 
This article contains Lists of Palestinian suicide attacks carried out by Palestinian individuals and militant groups. The international community considers the use of indiscriminate attacks on civilian populations[1] as illegal under international law.[2]
The first suicide attack was carried out in 1989 and the attacks stopped in 2008. The high point was in 2002 during the Second Intifada. A 2007 study of Palestinian suicide bombings during the Second Intifada (September 2000 through August 2005) found that 39.9 percent of the suicide attacks were carried out by Hamas, 26.4 percent by Fatah, 25.7 percent by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), 5.4 percent by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and 2.7 percent by other organizations.[3]
The criteria used for this list: successful deliberate attacks committed by Palestinian militant groups against civilians and security forces, in which the perpetrators intended to die during the attack.

  • Boldindicates attacks resulting in over 10 deaths.
  • Bold Underscoredindicates attacks resulting in over 20 deaths.
  • The perpetrator(s) are not included in the death tollsnoted in this list.

(I expect you to memorize all of this. I’ll test you on Christmas Day. More seriously, it’s too much to read and take in. Just scroll down through it and consider how much time, effort and money has gone into murder of innocent Jewish People in Jerusalem and elsewhere in Israel! Just look at the elevator bar to your right. Grab it and slowly pull down until you reach the RED headline near the bottom.)

‘A new kind of terrorism’ in Israel

Near-daily Palestinian attacks against Israeli civilians and soldiers are causing fear and anger in Israeli society. The attacks do not fit into past patterns, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has described the violence as “a new kind of terrorism” carried out by individuals.
For Palestinians, Israeli’s countermeasures are seen as too harsh. A large number of Palestinians wielding knives have been shot dead by police and soldiers. Dozens more have been killed in clashes with Israeli forcesRead related story.

Palestinian attacks against Israelis

The attacks carried out by Palestinians against Israelis often appear to be spontaneous and opportunistic. Many are undertaken by young, unmarried Palestinians. The most common weapon used is a kitchen knife. The second most common is the family car. Here are the attacks of each type since Oct. 1:

Palestinian deaths during clashes with Israeli forces

Meanwhile, Palestinian protests against Israel’s military occupation often result in deadly clashes. The majority of Palestinians killed in clashes were shot by Israeli forces firing live rounds or rubber-coated bullets.

Death toll

If the death of an Israeli soldier or Jewish settler is what the Palestinian assailants seek, the attacks are often failures. Most victims survive, and many of the Israeli soldiers, who wear body armor, are only lightly wounded, if at all. The same is not true for the Palestinian attackers, who are often shot dead.

Israel, the only democracy in the middle east, and widely hated. Why? It takes deliberate ignorance by choice, on the level of believing the moon landing was faked, to support Hamas and the PA at all. It is astonishing that we give $330MM to the PA/Hamas a year. Even more astonishing that Israel hasn’t turned off the power, water, banking and closed their borders completely, forcing the actual supporters of the PA/Hamas to airlift food.
I think he’s right. This is not an even handed fight. It’s not logical. I believe it to be Satanically inspired and it will lead to the war that ends all war which will end when the true Messiah brings an end to it.
I try to be even handed about everything including my views concerning Jewish and Christian doctrine. I’m difficult to label. If you’re trying, please cease and desist.
The Jewish people have taken a terrible beating for the past 4500 years and it’s going to get worse for a few more years. You won’t find much sanity in all of these television reports or United Nations policies and diatribes. If you’re one who loves The Lord Our God you’ll have to look to Him for justice and an end to all these things. Pray for it. That’s our only hope.
