Israel And Hamas: Does No One Remember Anything?

star target

In a world of such Kafkaesque ethical inversions, the depravity of Hamas begins to make sense. This is a world in which the Munich massacre is a movie and the murder of Klinghoffer is an opera – both deeply sympathetic to the killers.

This is a world in which the UN ignores humanity’s worst war criminals while incessantly condemning Israel, a state warred upon for 66 years that nonetheless goes to extraordinary lengths to avoid harming the very innocents its enemies use as shields.

It’s to the Israelis’ credit that amid all this madness they haven’t lost their moral scruples. Or their nerve. Those outside the region have the minimum obligation, therefore, to expose the madness and speak the truth. Rarely has it been so blindingly clear.

About the Author: Charles Krauthammer is a Pulitzer Prize winning columnist, Fox News commentator, and bestselling author. His most recent book, “Things That Matter” (Crown Forum, 2013), spent several months at the top of the New York Times nonfiction bestseller list.

  1. Normal, thinking US citizens have been calling out for Washington to kick the UN out of the USA for years. It is made up of many criminals from corrupt countries and really accomplishes nothing but worthless, endless words and fraud!

  2. The problem is really , Who or what should Israel do about putting in place of Hamas. If we take over control of Gaza are we going to stay there to maintain control ? Are we wanting the United Nations to do it ? can we even trust them to do it ? what is the end strategy ? to annihilate them ? or do we incorporate Gaza back to Israel proper, and martial law incorporated in troubled areas ? How does Israel win she obviously is not winning by Merely shooting at buildings knocking off the odd terrorist here or there. If you want to eradicate terrorism then in this case there has to be an all-out war there will never be a cease-fire. Does Israel have to risk the lives of her citizens by speculating that they could change the Arabs a people who openly say it’s not about the land it’s about destroying the Jews. The people that Chant from the river to the sea Palestine will be free. They mean free of Jews to Judenrein the land of Israel and the rest of the worlds Jews Wherever they are to be found . What they call it is Jihad . Its Nothing but the plain Truth see for yourselves and don’t be fooled into believing that they want to coexist. They have never’s said such a thing . Baffles me that there are so many ostrich like people who put their head in the sand believing if they sing Kumbaya everything will be okay.

  3. You have to be human to have a human rights !!!

  4. UN…a bunch full of criminals…. mafia don`t blame mafia

  5. Karen Bryant says:

    The U N is a sell out to Islam. They cannot be trusted to be fair in their decisions.

  6. Geela Gordon says:

    Its time the un came down on war crimes on hamas and hamas has done more crimes since this war we the people of the world must stand together and tell the un to blame hamas for there war crimes . Israel is the victims and besides you want hamas coming into your home and killing you! I stand for Israel!

  7. The U.N. Needs to leave the United States.

  8. The UN wants One World Government ruled by them. They want to depopulate the planet by 6billion people. That is 3 out of 4 people must die. They have convinced countries to go along with this madness and have been slowly working towards their goal for the last 40 years. Right down to telling farmers how to not use their land. Fishing areas restricted, running our country down deliberately, it goes on and on. Even tells how to deceive people. We are being like sheep to the slaughter. About time we got out of the UN while we still have a chance. Mass immigration was also one of their strategies to bring countries to their knees. Are we able to trust government? They signed the unwinding treaty which is binding in the long run. Conspiracy! Treachery!

    través de la música, basados en los principios de convivencia y
    diálogo que son esenciales para encontrar la paz y la unión

  11. They want to get rid of Israel because it will fight for survival. The world is being deliberately turned against Israel , against Jews, feeding hatred. The UN have been pulling strings for 40 years to achieve their goal of One World Government. I believe all the unrest and killing is a major step towards this. Look at UN Agenda 21 on Google and what it actually means.

Rosh Hashanah has an obvious connection to God’s Kingship. We constantly refer to Him during the Asseres Yemei Teshuvah as Melech/King.
