Leftists are screaming at Israel for trying to survive. Can anyone here play this game called reality?

I keep intending to do summer blog vacation, yet keep seeing events and then wanting to get stuff off my chest.


What is it with the idiot left condemning Israel for interdicting missiles, rockets, bombs, and other weapons from being imported into Gaza so they may be shot into Israel with blatant murderous intent?

I haven't been to Israel. It's my impression that, were I in Israel, Gaza would be no further distance from me than the nearest high school is from me here in Fort Worth. And Gaza would be shooting at me, if they could just get some rockets and missiles in, either through the tunnels from Egypt or via "aid" ships. I exaggerate, a bit, out of frustration at leftist idiots. But I don't exaggerate all THAT much. Before Israel's incursion into Gaza a couple of years ago, multiple thousands of rockets had been launched from Gaza into Israel. One of the major targets: Israeli schools. Jeejackhosaphat the left is stupid.

Deep breath. Let's try and make the case for the leftist condemnation of Israel's interdiction of the "aid" ships. The case:

Premise: Palestinian Arabs wish to live in peace with Jews.

Assertion: If Israel treats Palestinians "fairly", then Palestinians will live in peace with Israelis. Israel ought accede to Palestinian demands for land, goods, services. The result will be peace.

Problem: both the premise and the assertion are fantasy. Stupid, stupid, asinine fantasy. In actuality, Palestinians desire eradication of Israel. Consider: if Palestinians laid down their weapons, there would be peace; if Israel laid down her weapons, there would be no Israel. Palestinian complaints about unfair treatment are actually tactics and strategy which are implemented in service of the ultimate objective of eradicating Israel.

So, when you wonder how the left can condemn Israel for inspecting "aid" ships for weaponry, know that the left condemns any Israeli action which any Palestinians might consider unfair. For the left: if Palestinians complain about an Israeli action, therefore said Israeli action ipso facto is an obstacle to peace. It follows that said Israeli action is likely to create injury, death, suffering ... in the form of formerly peaceful yet newly angered Palestinians conducting future attacks against Israel.

So, every time I begin to say:
what is up with the stupid left objecting to preventing rockets from being imported into Gaza? Why do they even need aid ships for Gaza? No one is starving in Gaza. There's food in every market. Israel lets everything in: they just check for weapons first, and they told the ships they would let everything into Gaza after they had checked for weapons. Why did 5 ships get checked without incident, then Israeli soldiers were beaten with steel rods, knifed, and shot at on a 6th ship? Isn't if obvious?! What is up with the left calling terrorists who beat, knife, and shoot at soldiers "peace activists"? Can anybody here play this game called reality? And exactly WHY has the UN already condemned Israel, and has yet to condemn N. Korea for firing a torpedo and SINKING a S. Korean ship? Anyone? We know the UN hates Israel and wants it shoved into the sea. However, isn't the double standard a bit blatant even for the UN?

Anyway... rather than saying all the above with maximum exasperation, I need to repeat a mantra: ipso facto aaahhhhhmmmmmmm ipso facto ahhhhhhmmmmmm ipso facto if we want SERENITY NOW! Because, for the left, it's not about importing weaponry, its about angering those wonderful humanitarians known as Palestinians.

As far as the idiot left is concerned:
allow all the weapons into Gaza which anyone wants. The weapons will not be used unless you anger those Palestinians who just wish to live in peace and fairness. So: stop with the interdiction and all the other futile efforts. It doesn't matter whether or not they have rockets and launchers. The only thing which matters is whether or not you appease them. Give them what they want, and everyone will live in peace. And, Israel, DON'T do anything to make anyone mad! Ipso facto till you die, Israel.

Could the left actually believe that incredible pap??? I kinda think maybe not. I think, maybe the left, quietly, in places deep inside and which they never allow to be known in public: just wants Israel to die. Maybe the left thinks: if Israel dies, then the world will have no more problems with Islamic terrorism. Which type of hoping and appeasement is what Churchill called: hoping the alligator will eat you last. Israel is not a sacrificial virgin which will appease the Volcano gods and prevent disaster. Israel is the canary in the coal mine. Israel is the warning: GET OUT OF THE MINE!!! POISONOUS GAS!!!! GET OUT!!!!!! Israel is the warning that the problem must be dealt with by the free world; that the problem is coming. Poison gas will not be appeased. The problem is coming for our children. We either take effective action, or our children die in tragic numbers. It's that simple.

Wretchard, aka Richard Fernandez, is ... I don't know. I started to say exasperated, but, unlike me, maybe he's too enlightened and spiritually balanced to be exasperated. So: he's piquant, urgent, focused.

I am not. I am frustrated and want to scream that this whole thing is insanity.

Wretchard the piquant and focused:

Both cases [Israel interdiction and N.Korea torpedo] demonstrate that nothing is more paramount either to the establishment nor to the politically correct sections of the media than the maintenance of a lie. For the lie is in the service of the greater good. High reasons of policy will be invoked to explain why the truth should not be so. But the extreme reliance on fantasy by parts of the Western establishment goes well beyond surrounding a kernel of the truth with a “bodyguard of lies.” Instead it is the lie itself which is guarded by even more falsehoods. Gradually and inexorably, an entire political class has staked its existence on continuation of falsehood. The greater good is the fiction. Deception has become a necessity in itself.

As a result, any moderately well informed individual knows that there is no Islamic extremism, nor even terrorism. There are only man made disasters. Everybody knows that we can borrow our way out of debt, that the welfare state is the sustainable wave of the future; that Egypt has no border with Gaza through which it can provide supplies if it wanted; that the UN has kept Hezbollah from importing hundreds of missiles into Lebanon; that the thought of a handful of Jews has kept hundreds of millions of oil-rich Muslims from attaining prosperity; and that Global Warming is the main danger facing the planet Earth. That these assertions are untrue hardly matters; that they are indisputable is what seems to count. For who shall dispute them?

Reality might. And therein lies the problem.

Here’s what is going to happen with one hundred percent certainty. All of these lies will explode with considerable force in the faces of political establishment. Nothing can prevent it. Just as reality eventually exposed the hollowness of the financial bubble and showed that nothing was “too big to fail,” eventually it will demonstrate to our extreme cost, that no lie can be maintained forever. That is the real reason anyone should really care about what happened on the “peace flotilla.” We are as corrupt as a preacher in a whorehouse. It ain’t what we don’t know that will hurt us, it’s what we know that ain’t so that will drive the dagger into our hearts.
