I need to read the report that once again singles out my nation above all others. Our children were kidnapped and murdered; tunnels were dug into our communities so that a massive attack could take place…hundreds would be killed in the ensuing bombardment and terror attacks.

Rockets were fired – hundreds, even thousands of them.


And we were condemned. We announced where we were going to be – leaflets were dropped, cell phones were called…all while rockets were fired at us.

And the UN says Hamas tried to warn us of rocket attacks? I was here, I want to scream at them. I was here. Not once did those…those…oh, I’m too angry to write this post. I can’t yet be rational.

What I like to do is take these moronic reports line by line and prove them wrong…and I try to do it in a way that leads the reader to laughter.

I can’t do that yet…

Israel did something so smart…we got military experts including eleven former US Chiefs of Staff, a former NATO Military Commander, political leaders from 7 different countries and they issued a simple and clear statement. It is one that exonerates Israel and damns the UN.

Says the group:

“Each of our own armies is of course committed to protecting civilian life during combat. But none of us is aware of any army that takes such extensive measures as did the IDF last summer to protect the lives of the civilian population in such circumstances.”

The UN says we did not do all that we could to save lives in Gaza while ignoring that Gaza did everything it could to take lives.

There has been no greater proof of the UN’s bias than this latest affront. When the anger becomes manageable and the first words I can think of are not obscenities, I’ll try to offer my opinion.

For now, I’ll just say greater fools have not been created than those who think that justice is served by lying.
