Assad Adopting Hamas ‘Dead Baby’ Strategy

If the media and the international community continue to enable these tyrannical regimes, the cynical dead baby strategy will expand in scope.

Another reason why this strategy succeeds is that the world seems to care far less about civilian deaths caused by Arab and Muslim nations against their own citizens than deaths caused by Western democracies.  If American bombs were to kill 100 Syrian civilians, there would be more outcry than when 100,000 Syrians, including tens of thousands of civilians, have been killed by Syrian forces on both sides of this civil war.  This is pure and simple racism, holding Western democracies to a higher standard than Muslim tyrannies and theocracies.  It’s is an old story, but it will once again rear its bigoted head when and if American forces kill Syrian civilians who were deliberately placed in harm’s way as human shields by the Syrian regime.

To stop this once and for all, the international community and the media must place the blame for these dead babies where it belongs:  on the shoulders of tyrants who deliberately use their own civilians as human shields.

    This article wouldn't have caught my attention, except for its author, Alan Dershowitz. Excellent reasoning and argument as usual.

    W knew this was happening–but a lot of people do not. A necessary read.

    for someone who is in mourning on the same day, the doll was killed, the man's beard is over one month old. His make-up artist did a lousy job in preparing the actors for their role.

Just as we would never grant legitimacy to ISIS, we should not grant legitimacy to Hamas.

Is a Hamas member who stores weapons in his home a civilian or combatant? Pictured, weapons and ammunition found by the IDF in the bedroom of a Gaza home, July 2014

“Continuum of Civilianality:” Who is a civilian and who is a combatant is often a matter of degree.

But instead the UN is playing right into the hands of Hamas, by sheltering civilians right next to Hamas fighters, Hamas weapons and Hamas tunnels. Then the United Nations and the international community accuses Israel of doing precisely what Hamas intended Israel to do: namely fire at its terrorists and kill United Nations protected civilians […]

Qatar’s wealth and Turkey’s size should not preclude us from telling it as it is: Qatar and Turkey are among the worst villains in the Gaza tragedy.

Many American experts—diplomatic, nuclear, political, economic—believe that even the risks to the United States exceed the benefits.

The immediate choice for the world today is not between diplomacy and preventive war. We have a third option: to maintain or even increase the sanctions.

If the media and the international community continue to enable these tyrannical regimes, the cynical dead baby strategy will expand in scope.

The very word “hero” was used by the Jordanian justice minister in joining the chorus calling for the release of a convicted terrorist.
