I am outraged that the United Nations sat idly by while ISIS continued to rape and pillage its way across the Levant.
And I wonder, Mr. Ban Ki-moon, what your response will be when august members of the United Nations are publicly condemned for being the infidel, when their heads will be on sticks for all to see.
I am outraged Mr. Ban Ki-moon that you dare to point fingers and make accusations as the only remaining democracy in the Middle East is now accused of crimes against humanity when in reality, all Israel is doing is trying desperately to protect its citizens.
Generations of Israeli children in the south have not known a normal day in their lives over the last ten years. They have grown up knowing that Hamas’s mission is to push them into the sea, and to kill all Jews, worldwide, and to push Israel into the sea.
Certainly, there is no such manifesto towards the Palestinians, yet Hamas chooses to use its citizens as human shields in its ongoing war.
Genocide is a strong word. Let us seek to properly define it, rather than bandying it about irresponsibly.
And where is the outrage at images coming out of Iraq, of Christian children beheaded by ISIS – A terrorist state, married to the death and destruction of those who dare to practice different religions?
Where is the outrage and condemnation of those murderers of children, in the name of Allah?
Where is the condemnation of murderers of other Muslims for not adhering to their view of Islam?
Has the world become too blindsided by the displacement of international wrath on the “Zionists” — a convenient scapegoat indeed for the barbarism conducted in the name of religion?
I am outraged, Mr. Ban Ki-moon. I am outraged that in the 21st century we are dealing with international barbarism of a depth not seen in the modern times, while the world, too traumatized to understand, stands idly by.
I am outraged that international media has become too traumatized to be objective, that world leaders are so busy pointing the finger at the so-called ‘Genocide of Palestinians in Gaza’ that they forget the elected terrorist government of Hamas is committing psychic genocide of generations of Israeli children, their parents and grandparents in the south.
Those generations of traumatized families have all grown up with the sound of sirens, and have had no normalcy for most of their lives — and now that same melody has spread throughout the country, kids who wake up in the middle of the night, terrorized with nightmares and wetting the beds.
I am outraged that Israel is once again the world’s scapegoat.
I am outraged that UNRWA schools are being used not only as purported places of education and safety but also as harbors for terrorist weapons and launching pads. What about the collusion, Mr. Ban Ki-moon?
I am outraged that in 2014, the world has lost its moral compass.Dr. Simone Gordon
