  1. Paul, are you so ignorant of the situation that you’re not even familiar with the term “Human Shield”? Do you actually believe that Israel, under EACH AND EVERY ONE of its PMs since ’48 has done everything humanly possible to PREVENT civilian casualities? Well, I suppose that’s because we’re greedy Jews and want to avoid the expense of having as much as possible in order to save on the medical bills Israel provides at the Israeli dollar…I mean, you are aware of the fact that in covering Gazans under Israel’s Universal Health Care System costs on the average Israeli taxpayer’s dime, hurting civilians COSTS MONEY!!! Gazans actually get better health care than many Americans!!!

    So why do civilians get hurt?

    Used to be Israel would understook costly and dangerous sorties to bomb Gazans…with PAMPLETS rather than bombs, which would read something like this, in Arabic of course:

    “All civilians please stay away from location X, as it happens to be a terrorist base and we want to get the terrorists, NOT YOU!!!”

    Of course Hamas caught on very quickly, cleverly, and cold-heartedly, labelling these pamphlets as “scare tactics to demoralize the poor Gazans into submission”.

    At the same time, of course, the pamphlet idea totally backfired in a manner even Israel could never have predicted:

    “Y’alla! Y’alla! Find as many innocent civilians, preferably children, round them up, get them to building X ASAP, just in time for the bombing, so when the building is bombed we can use the whole thing to convince Paul Armstrong and Amnesty International and the world that the Jews are killing our innocent civilians!”

    As for Iron Dome, how about a gentlemen’s bet: if it works as expected and no missile fired by Hamas ever lands in Israel, I bet you all this awful carnage you (hopefully unwittingly) believe is some sort of brutal “offensive”, and that the “Naval Blockade” does not prevent a single morsel of humanitarian aid (as if they need it…once again, the Israeli taxpayer ships TONNES of “NON-WEAPON” humanitarian supplies they could possibly need).

    Please explain to me just how the Gazan Missile Crisis differs in any way from the Cuban Missile Crisis? Just replace Kruschev with Achmedinijad and I see now difference at all…well…aside from the fact that JFK wasn’t a Jew.

    So now tell me, Mr. Self-Styled “Shayke” Armstrong, what is it that you feel Netanyahu is doing that could be done better?

    The pamphlets totally backfired…so what do YOU propose instead.

    For that matter, much closer to home back during the Battle of Britain in ’40, while Germany was bombarding YOUR HOMELAND day after day after day, you would seem to advocate just sitting back let your fellow Englishmen and by the tens of thousands, yet do nothing in the form of counter-attack.

    Hamas Covenant 1988, just a couple of passages:


    “Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it”

    Article Seventeen:

    “The Moslem woman has a role no less important than that of the moslem man in the battle of liberation. She is the maker of men. Her role in guiding and educating the new generations is great. The enemies have realised the importance of her role. They consider that if they are able to direct and bring her up they way they wish, far from Islam, they would have won the battle. That is why you find them giving these attempts constant attention through information campaigns, films, and the school curriculum, using for that purpose their lackeys who are infiltrated through Zionist organizations under various names and shapes, such as Freemasons, Rotary Clubs, espionage groups and others, which are all nothing more than cells of subversion and saboteurs. These organizations have ample resources that enable them to play their role in societies for the purpose of achieving the Zionist targets and to deepen the concepts that would serve the enemy. These organizations operate in the absence of Islam and its estrangement among its people. The Islamic peoples should perform their role in confronting the conspiracies of these saboteurs. The day Islam is in control of guiding the affairs of life, these organizations, hostile to humanity and Islam, will be obliterated.”



    “WE APPEAL – in the very midst of the onslaught launched against us now for months – to the Arab inhabitants of the State of Israel to preserve peace and participate in the upbuilding of the State on the basis of full and equal citizenship and due representation in all its provisional and permanent institutions.

    WE EXTEND our hand to all neighbouring states and their peoples in an offer of peace and good neighbourliness, and appeal to them to establish bonds of cooperation and mutual help with the sovereign Jewish people settled in its own land. The State of Israel is prepared to do its share in a common effort for the advancement of the entire Middle East.”

    Political agenda on “both” sides, eh? Cycle of violence, eh?

    Well here’s how thing “cycle of violence” works:

    1) No hostilities on either side.
    2) Hamas gets a shipment of Quassams from Iran and fires them into Israel.
    3) Israel reacts firmly yet as surgically as possible to send HAMAS a message, that Israel SIMPLY WILL NOT TOLERATE IT.
    4) See #1

    Atal Yehudi Moseh’attam Allah

    • I’m certainly no fan of Hamas, as I’ve repeated highlighted in my articles discussing the situation in Israel/Palestine. I realise this is a difficult situation for Palestinians and Israelis alike. I agree there are no simple answers and do not like or agree with much of the unfair criticism Israel receives. Nevertheless, there is no smoke without fire… Just because Israel gets a great deal of unfair, even racist, criticism, doesn’t mean that all criticism of their government’s policies and actions are unfounded. I’m not an extremist, so do not expect that I will always favour either Israelis or Palestinians over the other. Having said that, Hamas is clearly a terrorist organisation, I do not support them or their activities whatsoever.

      • I’m certainly not accusing you of sympathizing with Hamas.

        “Nevertheless, there is no smoke without fire.”

        I refer back yet again to WWII.

        There was sure plenty of fire there!

        Most of southern England was being bombed!

        Does that make Churchill a war-monger for fighting back.

        And just as Germany had a few “Schindlers” here and there, England had it’s “Edward VIII!” Does that mean that England was no better than Germany!

        “Nevertheless, there is no smoke without fire.” – who little the match? Germany or England?

        Of course, there are we a couple of SNAFUS Anglophobes love to harp on:


        Not bombing the death camps fast enough!

        Hording India’s crops resulting in the death of some 3 million Hindus!

        The Oxford Student Union resoltion!

        Making a pact with the Devil (Uncle Joe)!

        Caving to Arab pressure by sending ships of Jews landing in Palestine back to Europe, knowing all to well what they had in store, because according to the Arabs, one seeking refuge in Palestine was one too many! After all, they had nothing to do with the problem, and there bore no responsibility to help.

        All very, very bad moves.

        Just a sampling.

        And today? The BNP, the “English Defence League”, etc., etc.

        But I forgive your people and honour them to such and extent that I do my best not to pick on you guys at all about any of this.

        Two sides to every story?

        The woman facing being raped taking a shotgun to the attempted rape?

        Maybe that WAS a bit harsh and she should have shot him in the legs causing a non-fatal wound.

        England was in an existencial crisis at the time. Today it’s Israel.

        Once again, how would YOU react were in Netanyahu’s shoes. Just what policies do you object to?

        Littering Gaza with pamphlets?

        Mutilating their children with free appendectomies? Basically just throwing taxpayer money at them? Domestic issues? A heavy tax burden? All those stray cat’s and dogs living on the street inTel Aviv? Taking a bulldozer to the Al-Aqsa Mosque..no wait..we’d never do that. The serious drug problem in Israel amongst youths?

        Please! Give us fair criticism about something OTHER than Palestinians, Palestinians, Palestinians, Palestinians, Palestinians, Palestinians, Palestinians, Palestinians, Palestinians, Palestinians, Palestinians, Palestinians, ad nauseum.

        So I ask again, how is the above “fair criticism”? It’s just plain insulting, and, dare I say, sacrelegiousa; Exodus? The Torah?

        I just don’t get it when you persist with it.

        What does it even mean? Netanyahu’s a lunatic for doing his best (unless you have some better suggestions. I’m all ears) to keep Israel from being dead?


        Eliezer Netanyahu.

        (By the way, those tens of thousands of people shouting “Death to Israel”, just seem a bit more that a “tiny minority”)

  2. Criticism indeed can be very constructive, well, at least when a superiour alternative is offered.

    As Jews we don’t simply “tolerate” constructive criticism; indeed we invite it.

    So by all means, criticize away!

    Just be sure you’ve got a superiour alternative to offer.

    Otherwise you’re deceiving yourself by rationalizing “nobody’s perfect! “Just because Israel gets a great deal of unfair, even racist, criticism, doesn’t mean that all criticism of their government’s policies and actions are unfounded.”

    Please, criticize away! Tell us how we should be doing things better! We’re all ears!

    “I’m not an extremist, so do not expect that I will always favour either Israelis or Palestinians over the other.”

    Am I being and “extremist” for admiring Churchill 100% and Hitler 0%?

    Churchill was a unipolar drunk. Let’s make fun of him now! Hitler was a vegetarian and one of the principal architects behind the construction of the Autobahn! Praise Hitler for that one!

    “Hamas is clearly a terrorist organisation, I do not support them or their activities whatsoever.”

    Why then no mockery? Why then zero criticism of its main sponsor, Iran?

    Kinda funny too, y’think? Worth a mention, no?

    Apparently not.

    BTW, that was that “lunatic” point Netanyahu was trying, and apparently failing to get through to those “non-extremists” such as yourself, meaning one of two things:

    1) Those who spend all their efforts targeting Israel AND NEVER HER ENEMIES (aside for those 15 token words I had to squeeze out of you: “Hamas is clearly a terrorist organisation, I do not support them or their activities whatsoever.) are indeed not extremists at all, indeed, they’re actually the MODERATES (!) or,

    2) You, Paul, are a Muslim extremist.

    If the first case is true, I can’t possibly NOT hate a religion whose MODERATES behave in such EXTREMIST fashion.

    And if the second is the case and you, Paul, are indeed a Muslim extremist, I simply cannot NOT hate YOU.

    Call me an Islamophobe all you wish. “Islamophobia” is from the Greek: “Fear of Islam”. And I don’t “Fear Islam” for one moment. I just find it to be a backward, primitive, genocidal, sociopathic faith…not all too different from some backward, primitive faith once found in the Americas where human sacrifice was practiced.

    Depraved indifference to evil, be it Achmadinejad’s genocidal plans, or some Aztec or Mayan or whatever ritual involving the throwing of virgins into volcanoes?

    Same difference.

    “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”

    (And that’s assuming you’re a good man).

    No need to block me or anything for harassment or whatever.

    Don’t worry, I’m done with you, I’ve given up all remaining hope in both you and Islam. You won’t hear from me again.

    Just once last thought to leave you with: Before I met you, I had respect and hope for Islam.

    But now, thanks to you, I’ve lost all hope and respect.
