NY Times Editorial Board Explicitly Takes Side Of Israel

Going back to the NY Times, as it’s impressive that the editorial board actually takes a stand for Israel, with very little equivocating, considering how many Democrats are pro-Palestinian, and so anti-Israel that it becomes anti-Jew. Witness the Jew and Israel hatred protests in the streets of NYC over the past few days

The Attack on Israel Demands Unity and Resolve

The brutal terrorist attack on Israel by Hamas is a tragedy, one that may change the course of the nation and the entire region.

Israelis are reeling, in shock over the toll of people killed, wounded and taken hostage, and the world is mourning with them. The militants killed more than 800 Israelis in a series of coordinated rocket attacks and continued fighting. To the world’s horror, they attacked civilians — including older people, women and children — and took them hostage. More than 150 people remain captive in Gaza, in a further atrocity.

When the actions against civilians is described like that, they aren’t militants, they are terrorists. Heck, the U.S. State Department has Hamas on the list of terrorists

Hamas struck Israel 50 years and one day after the surprise invasion from Egypt and Syria that launched the Yom Kippur War of 1973, prompting comparisons with one of the major battles of the Arab-Israeli conflict. But this time the attackers were not Arab armies against military targets; they were militants from a Palestinian enclave randomly terrorizing civilians, and this attack was organized by armed groups that have long questioned Israel’s right to exist.

Reuters thinks the “dispute hinges on statehood, land, Jerusalem, refugees.” No. It hinges on this Islamist terrorist group wanting to kill Jews and wipe Israel off the map. That’s it. Everything else is window dressing.

It is also the administration’s duty to work to prevent this terrible eruption of violence from spreading from Gaza to involve Palestinians in the West Bank. Mr. Biden, Secretary of State Antony Blinken and others have an invaluable role to play in maintaining open communication with leaders of the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and of neighboring Arab states to urge calm.

They should be telling those in the West Bank that any incursion will be met with force. They won’t. The less said from this admin the better.

But Israel’s military strength depends on its national unity, and Israelis have now come together to defend themselves. The government has promised a severe and protracted response against Hamas. It began with multiple strikes on cities in Gaza, and Israel should do everything it can to avoid the loss of civilian lives. Already the Israeli government is cutting off power and water to Gaza, and it ordered a siege to starve Hamas of resources. This tactic, if it continues, will be an act of collective punishment. All sides involved in the conflict are bound by international law, and it is important to note that violations by one side do not permit violations by another.

Well, of course there had to be a little bit of “Israel should measure their response.” The people voted for Hamas. They support Hamas. They should have thought about it beforehand if they do not like being without water and energy.

Oh, and the last paragraph

The violence in Israel may also strengthen calls to cut military aid to Ukraine. That is a false choice; America’s duty as Israel’s friend is to stand firm in its support, to join the Israeli people in their grief and to continue to work toward an end to the cycle of violence.

They just couldn’t leave it alone. Israel is a long time ally. Ukraine is not. Israel has strategic importance to the U.S. Ukraine does not. Ukraine is full of literal Nazis and Fascists. Israel is not. Israel knows how to use the weapons we give them. Ukraine does not.

    All the media whores are “with Israel”. Until Hamas starts posting video of dead “innocent” kids killed by Israeli bombs and bullets. Soon as that happens their real position will become clear as they start harping about the Israelis overreacting and using too much force. Once that happens all the cowardly yellow politicians will join in and star pressuring Israel for a cease fire. That’s what happens EVERY time the camel humpers engage in a terrorist attack on Israeli civilians.

  2. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    More than one truth can exist at the same time.

    Hamas is a terrorist organization and needs to be eliminated. Not discouraged. Not negotiated with. Eliminated, killed, destroyed, slaughtered.

    The Gaza strip is an overcrowded, impoverished zone where people are lack food, medicine, electricity…

    This does NOT in any way excuse the horror that Hamas inflicted on Israelis (and their own people).

    We are all sickened by the actions of these terrorists, but our responses must be based not only on anger, but on effectiveness.

    Just as Iran and Iranians would be better off WITHOUT their current ruling regime, so would the Gaza Palestinians be better without their terrorist rulers.

      It just doesn’t get any more stupid than that. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_wacko.gif

    • Dana says:

      Mr Dowd gets one right:

      the Gaza Palestinians be better without their terrorist rulers.

      However, it needs to be pointed out that the Gazans chose their terrorist rulers.

      There was an actual election in the Palestinian ‘Authority’ in 2006, an election in which Hamas won a plurality (44%) of the vote, and, under the election rules, would have had a majority in the Palestinian ‘parliament.’ Al Fatah, the successor to Yassir Arafat’s Palestine Liberation Organization, which finished second (41%) didn’t like the outcome, and an on-again-off-again battle between al Fatah and Hamas occurred. In 2007, Hamas won the battle in Gaza, and expelled all of the al Fatah representatives.

      That was a long time ago, but since then, Hamas has strengthened its controls, including controls of the schools, which means that every Gazan under 33 has been educated the way Hamas wants them educated; they hate the Israelis, and have been thoroughly propagandized in Hamas “from the River to the Sea” philosophy, of expelling all of the Jews from the Levant.

      Hamas are guerrilla fighters, and guerrilla fighters depend upon the support of the population, for food, water, clothing, shelter, and transportation. The Gazans are as much a part of Hamas as the Japanese and German civilians were a part of their countries’ armaments and support structures, and we bombed Japan and Germany until Hell wouldn’t have it anymore to cripple the civilian support infrastructure on which those countries’ military depended to keep soldiers in the field.

      But we did more than that. We both terrorized the kids growing up so much that there were few thoughts of taking up arms against the US, USSR, and United Kingdom when the boys grew into men, and we occupied Germany and Japan, and put in an educational system which stressed Western values, rather than the cultures which allowed Nazi’ism and Bushido to flourish.

      That’s what it took to win World War II, the last war we actually won. Can we expect the Israelis to do anything even remotely similar in Gaza?

    Mr Teach typed: Israel is a long time ally. Ukraine is not. Israel has strategic importance to the U.S. Ukraine does not. Ukraine is full of literal Nazis and Fascists. Israel is not. Israel knows how to use the weapons we give them. Ukraine does not.

    None of that is true.

    Israel can defend itself against Hamas. Ukraine cannot defend itself against Russia.

    Once, as Teach hopes, Russia overruns Ukraine, Russia will be on the border of Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania and Moldova. Part of the Russian invasion originated from Belarus (a Russian ally). Is Russia so reckless to try to reabsorb Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania?

    BTW, many Israelis consider Netanyahu an advocate of fascist policies.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Equivocate much, chubby? Such a coward.

      Find the courage to take a side at a moment when history is watching, because we’ve already seen what happens when they come for the Jews and people say nothing.

      Or maybe Rimjob just hates Jews.

        Our troll loves them Islams. I bet he really got a turn on with the images of raped women and headless babies.

          Come now David,
          We all know that Jeff loves whatever side the Democratic party activists tell him to love, and switch as often as they tell him to, for any reason they tell him to. He has no thoughts of his own. The current Democratic party line is “nuance”. A sort of “hate the sin but love the sinner” approach.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            The fake perfesser projects once again. It’s what nuCons do. Solid argument there, perfesser!!


      • Kye says:

        You can’t be a Democrat and be pro Jew. Democrats hate Jews. It’s one of those sweet mysteries of life why all the Jews are seemingly Democrats.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          LOL. Three of the four of Teach’s dumbshit MAGAts commenting at once!!

          It makes sense in MAGAt-World that American Jews are too stupid to know for whom to vote. It’s what they think of Black voters too.

          What are the odds that two out of three marched in Charlottesville shrieking “Jews Won’t Replace Us!”

  4. Jl says:

    “Islam downgraded to religion of mostly peace…”

  5. Jl says:

    Another self-own…”In MAGA world that American Jews are too stupid to know for whom to vote. It’s what they think of black voters, too.”
    Sorta like far-left liberals think Blacks are too stupid to know how to get an ID? Got it.

  6. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    You anti-Muslims may be right. Can you think of any time in history when Christians persecuted another religious group?

    Other than the Muslims, has any Christian sect ever persecuted the Jews?

    Let’s Google… Hey, did you ever hear about that thing they called the Holocaust??? German Christians herded up Jews around Europe and butchered, shot, blew up, vivisected, burned, drowned, beaten, raped, tortured, starved, gassed children, women and men. Millions of them!!! And the German Christians took all the Jews’ money, clothing, property, art, jewelry and even their teeth! Like today’s Muslims, German Christians also murdered homosexuals, the disabled and many foreigners.

    Holy cow! Did you know that most of the slaveholders in the United States were Christians? And get this, the genocide of those heathen Indians was promulgated by Christians!!

    • James Lewis says:

      Dear Elwood:.

      Whatever were the sins of the past, the facts are what they are.

      Then is then. Now is now.

      And German Nazi’s calling themselves Christians didn’t make them anymore Christian than you calling yourself a Liberal when what you are is a Leftie.

      And we recognized the lie from the Germans and utterly destroyed Germany.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        JL uses the “No True Scotsman” fallacy (look it up).

        “No True Christian” would murder Jews, bomb Black churches, shoot doctors, massacre American Indians, own other humans. Well, they did. And white Christian nationalists marched in Charlottesville VA crying “Blood and Soil!” and “Jews Won’t Replace Us!”. When will moderate Christians control their extremist reactionary “militia”?

        Can you define “leftie”, you old fascist, you?

        • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

          Can you define “leftie”, you old fascist, you?

          I can and a fascist is a lefty. Which means you’re a lefty because you’re a fascist or vice versa. But you’re really a communist not a fascist. Although nowadays the two are hardly indistinguishable. Sadly so is the Democrat party indistinguishable from them. The Democrats have gone so far left Lacey Joe Stalin and their buddy Adolf in the rearview mirror. They’ve gotten to the point where they wanna confiscate guns censor civilians regulate speech stop religion and tell people what they have to think and what sex they’re gonna be. Leftist in America and Democrats in America the same thing and very dangerous people if we could find a way to get him outta here we should.

          Here’s a quote from a Jew and a fellow trump supporter and what you would call a MAGAT in your usual disgusting way. Part of his family having lived through the Holocaust is very familiar with what you are and what a Nazi is.

          “Nazi” should never be used to describe non-Nazis. Nazi evil was sui generis. There has never been as organized, as industrialized, an attempt to murder every member of a religious/ethnic group — “every member” meaning babies, women, and the elderly as well as adult males — as the Nazi attempt to murder every Jew in Europe. Within a mere four years, they nearly succeeded: The Nazis murdered two out every three Jews in Europe.

          The Muslim leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran regularly announce that the annihilation of Israel is their paramount aim. They would rather murder the Jews of Israel and eradicate Israel than feed their people. In fact, they have stated that the death of tens of millions of their fellow Iranians is a price worth paying if it means annihilating Israel.”

          That’s what a moslem is Elwood. Well you’ve managed to list only a few of the dastardly deeds perpetrated throughout history by people who are Christians I submit to you that they are not Christians being driven by their Bible or by their God but by their politics they’re leftist liberal politics. Their politics ignores their religious beliefs and instead their politics has become their religion just like you. Remember you told us you turned your back on God and your church when you were 14 apparently you’ve adopted your politics as your religion unfortunately instead of adopting the politics of freedom you adopted the politics of oppression.

          Muslims on the other hand always go according to the Koran. From the clothes they wear to the queers they throw off her rooftops to the Christians, Jews and any other religion that will not conform to Islam that they murder. That is their calling. And their only calling.

          The Koran was written as an instruction manual on how to eliminate or convert every non Islamic on earth to Islam. Submit and comply or die. It’s almost like joining the Democrat party. They’re all of 1 belief they all have one opinion and they all say the same words. Your naivetés about exactly what propels Muslims is astounding thank God you’re not in politics because it would be dangerous like the squad is dangerous to America. Like all you leftists are dangerous to America and the free world.

          You know precisely what a leftist is, what a liberal is, what a fascist is, what a communist is, and you know precisely that today’s modern Democrat is all of those wrapped into one.

          It’s your party that calls for the murder of unborn children through the institutionalization of abortion as birth control. You don’t care about any stage of development or whether they’re humans or dolls kill them all. You’re the ones who demand the culling of the people by chopping up little boys and girls to confuse their genders and eliminate their reproduction. You’re the group that wants to bring in people who hate America into our country. You’re the party who wants to establish a non white America it seems to be a big deal to you to turn America brown and it also seems a big deal to you that those of us who are white resent that. I don’t know why.

          You hate God therefore you hate everything good that God creates. You hate people particularly white people and anybody that would ever vote for Donald Trump. To you they have lost their humanity we probably deserve to be killed if truth be told. You don’t believe in the freedom of man which is why your team constantly tries to censor everybody else or force them to consume what you want them to consume and prohibit what you don’t like. Except for yourself of course. You are the leeches of society you have never created anything worthwhile. You live off the productivity of others.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            More “No TRUE Christian” arguments… LOL.

            I don’t hate “god”, I just see no evidence that one exists, but I could be wrong. That makes me agnostic. I don’t hate white people, I just don’t believe they are superior. I don’t hate Trump voters although I do believe they will destroy this nation. There is ample evidence that Trump lost the election. I do hate Brussel Sprouts, willful ignorance and wanton cruelty.

            I suspect you hate yourself for some reason, and lash out with hate at everyone who disagrees with you. You need to forgive yourself to heal. You’ve been shamed into hiding your violent tendencies.

            In the US gays are murdered by Christians.

            Many religions dictate clothing for adherents and clergy.

            Buddhist monks and nuns
            Catholic priests, nuns and schoolchildren
            Muslim sects
            Mennonites, Amish and Hutterites
            Orthodox Jews
            Jain monks and nuns

    J uses the “I still can’t refute what he said and my reading comprehension still sucks” routine. Never mentioned what Christians can or can’t do, now did I? And yes, lefties think Blacks are too stupid to get an ID. And the “religion of mostly peace”-are you arguing that’s not a true statement? It has absolutely nothing do with what Christians do or don’t do. By the way, what is your point-if you even have one? Another self-own by J.
