Ferguson: Paul Ryan Speaks!

The Republican Party's great intellectual honors us with his wisdom about Ferguson:

"WASHINGTON -- Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) waded into the Ferguson, Missouri, controversy on Tuesday and said the best way to bring about resolution is to let law enforcement do whatever they need to do.
"We should take a deep breath, sit back and let law enforcement do their job," he said during an interview with SiriusXM's David Webb."

Ryan is apparently of the opinion that letting law enforcement "do whatever they need to do" includes murdering unarmed teenagers.

I don't know why, but I thought I'd illustrate this comment with the following picture:
So, sue me.

"Ryan is apparently of the opinion that letting law enforcement "do whatever they need to do" includes murdering unarmed teenagers."

Ryan's right -- that's what Israel was doing in Gaza, and it was a good thing that it was murdering unarmed teenagers and unarmed children. What do you want Israel to do? In order to stop killing unarmed teenagers, Israel has to stop bombing Gaza, and, if they do that, well, everyone ends up like Anne Frank.

I thought you were on the side of Israel and civilization. I thought you had reached same conclusion I did: we have to conduct ethnic cleansing against the Palestinians. Now you're as bad as my stupid Israel-hating cousin.

Sometimes you just have to kill children, especially if they're genocidal Palestinian scum.

That's Ryan's new anti-poverty plan.

You misstate my position, Lev. I believe that, like every other country on earth, Israel has a right to fire back on installations being used to attack Israel. If these installations are deliberately placed in civilian locations, and if civilians die as a result, it is Hamas who has killed them, not Israel. The endless howls that Israeli responses must stop are nothing but an attempt to force Jews into doing nothing while they are eliminated one by one.

Of course this is not a justification for retaliation of uncontrolled violence, but after 13,000 missiles have been fired into Israel, what is too much?

Ethnic cleansing is a war crime and is never permissable. I know no one from Gaza, but I have known West Bank Palestinians and Israeli Arabs, and the ones I knew were not irrational monsters. They deserve a chance to live a peaceful life as much as anyone else. For decades now, it has been their brothers who have been denying that to them.

The Zionist terrorists were killing children long before Hamas was founded. They killed Arab children when they blew up the Semiramis Hotel in Jerusalem in January 1948, and when they blew up the market in Ramleh in February 1948. The IDF killed Arab children in the Negev in 1950.

They killed 19 Arab children in the Kfar Qassam massacre in 1956, and the only punishment imposed on the murderers was a one-cent fine. They killed another minor in the 1976 Land Day protests, when Israeli Arabs were protesting the Israeli government's taking their land in Galilee and giving it to Jews.

All of this killing of unarmed children came before Hamas was even founded.

"Of course this is not a justification for retaliation of uncontrolled violence, but after hundreds of Palestinian children have been killed over the decades, what is too much?"

I believe that, like every other people on earth, the Palestinians have a right to resist military occupation and ethnic cleansing.

Here's a good piece by Holocaust survivor Henry Siegman:
http://www.peacebuilding.no/var/ezflow_site/storage/original/application/83e50a3009bb8371196a20be882e6757.pdf
"The slaughter of Palestinian civilians and the Dresden-like reduction to rubble of large parts of Gaza by Israel’s military forces in the name of its own citizens’ security has exposed the hypocrisy at the heart of Israel’s dealings with the Palestinians. Israel’s claim to the right of self-defense in order to prevent its victims’ emergence from under its occupation is the ultimate definition of chutzpa" -- Siegman

Israel herds over 1.5 million Palestinians into Gaza, an area smaller than the city of Philadelphia, thus making sure that every part of Gaza is a civilian location. There is no civilian-free place they can go; Israel has made sure of that.

Imagine Philadelphia is under military occupation, and you are stuck there. Look at a map of Philadelphia -- there is nowhere in the city that is not a civilian location to fight back from. If those held captive in the city were to hit back, the occupiers could just bomb the city and say that they are entirely justified. After all, the resistance is based in a civilian area.

But who forced them into that small area? The occupiers of Philadelphia.

Likewise, Israel has forced over 1.5 million people in an area smaller than the size of Philadelphia. To say that they are further justified in bombing them because some Palestinians fight back, despite the fact that the only places left available for them to fight back from are civilian areas, is chutzpah of the worst sort.

Three things.

1) You say Israel should have kicked the Palestinians out of Gaza. I say Israel should kick them out of Gaza. That's ethnic cleansing, but we aren't anyone, so it's legal.

2) You know and I know that the Arabs say one thing in English and another thing in Arabic. You say you know them, but why should you trust them? If they wanted to come across as rational human beings, of course they'd lie.

3) Can you tell stupid Sam to put a sock in it?
