Beware the Lord of Israel

Listening to Him can make one a war criminal!

He cried also in mine ears with a loud voice, saying, Cause them that have charge over the city to draw near, even every man with his destroying weapon in his hand.

2And, behold, six men came from the way of the higher gate, which lieth toward the north, and every man a slaughter weapon in his hand; and one man among them was clothed with linen, with a writer’s inkhorn by his side: and they went in, and stood beside the brasen altar.

3And the glory of the God of Israel was gone up from the cherub, whereupon he was, to the threshold of the house. And he called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writer’s inkhorn by his side;

4And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.

5And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity:

6Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.

7And he said unto them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain: go ye forth. And they went forth, and slew in the city. – Ezekeil 9:1-7

The death toll keeps rising, much to the glee of the IDF.  They’ve got to have something to show for all the military hardware they’ve managed to squeeze into a 125 square mile area filled with over one million people.  Here’s the dicey part if you’re true, blue  and red blooded: we only have Palestinian or UN or Red Cross sources to rely on since the Israelis have either blocked or killed everyone else who could verify the numbers, but regardless the figures are startling. Over one thousand people killed in three weeks, several hundred are children and scores are women.  Surely the Israelis will dispute these numbers, but how can they since they haven’t allowed anyone in Gaza to see nor do they seem too interested in providing a count of the numbers of people they’ve slaughtered.   The point is however, the Jewish state which takes its mandate from scripture shouldnot  have, and they don’t it seems, any guilt about killing anyone that’s not a member of their fraternity.  The scripture and the numbers piling up in Gaza bear that out. The ‘religion of peace’ doesn’t have anything over this crowd.

Crocodile tears

crying_crocodileThe Israelis have ceased being innovative in their slaughter of Palestinians and have become rather predictable instead. Perhaps they are that way because their methods have always worked; they have always gotten away with murder, literally, and yet maintained their status as the world’s ultimate victim. However that said, this latest atrocity among the many they have committed today is the one easiest to see develop and make a parody of.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said the military fired artillery shells at the U.N. compound after Hamas militants opened fire from the location. Three people were wounded.

“It is absolutely true that we were attacked from that place, but the consequences are very sad and we apologize for it,” he said. “I don’t think it should have happened and I’m very sorry.”

Ging, who was in the compound at the time, dismissed the Israeli account as “nonsense.”

Israeli shells first hit the courtyard filled with refugees, then struck garages and the U.N.’s main warehouse, sending thousands of tons of food aid up in flames, Ging said. Later, fuel supplies went up in flames, sending a thick black plume of smoke into the air.

“It’s a total disaster for us,” Ging said, adding that the U.N. had warned the Israeli military that the compound was in peril from shelling that had begun overnight. U.N. officials say they have provided Israel with GPS coordinates of all U.N. installations in Gaza to prevent such attacks.

Of course the Israelis will cloud the issue about whether there were any militants, their location in regard to the UN compound, etc., etc., much like they did with the UN supported school which they shelled and killed scores of people last week.  Perhaps the only saving grace between today’s  shelling and that of a week ago is the absence of a large body count.  The Israeli strategy is to kill civilians, but it’s also to terrorize them and to the extent that they can shell at will UN shelters where refugees are supposed to feel safe but aren’t means they’ve also accomplished a goal.  So the absence of large numbers of dead aren’t a blow to their battle plans as long as they can make their enemy feel insecure.

It should be noted too that this attack took place while the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon was in the region trying to negotiate a ceasefire.  How’s that for an in your face moment brought to you by the IDF. There is no shame with this lawless regime, and recognizing that, false statements of regret are no more than crocodile tears.
