“Israel is only defending itself,” the ignorant say
On November 17, 2012, four days into Israel’s 8 day assault and massacre on the Gaza Strip, deputy Israeli Prime Minister Eli Yishai publicy called for the Israeli army to “blow Gaza back to the Middle Ages, destroying all the infrastructure including roads and water.”
The following day, Gilad Sharon, son of former Israeli premier Ariel Sharon, called for Israel to “flatten entire neighborhoods in Gaza. Flatten all of Gaza. There should be no electricity in Gaza, no gasoline or moving vehicles, nothing,” adding, “there is no middle path here – either the Gazans and their infrastructure are made to pay the price, or we reoccupy the entire Gaza Strip”
One does not “defend” itself by blowing a city back to the “Middle Ages” and “destroying all the infrastructure including roads and water.”
One does not “defend” itself by flattening entire neighborhoods and attempting to get rid of all electricity, gasoline, and moving vehicles in a city.
One does not “defend” itself by killing innocent children and civilians.
Israel is a terrorist state and is clearly not “defending” itself.
Israel has one goal:
To make the lives of those living in Palestine a living hell.
