Yet Another Democrat Leader Sides With the Palestinian War Criminals
He starts out OK, ("After visiting Sderot last April and seeing the serious psychological damage caused by the rockets that had fallen in that area, my wife, Rosalynn, and I declared their launching from Gaza to be inexcusable and an act of terrorism.") but then he distorts a little history. Behold:
[June 19 cease fire was unacknowledged by Israel] but rocket firing was soon stopped and there was an increase in supplies of food, water, medicine and fuel. Yet the increase was to an average of about 20 percent of normal levels. And this fragile truce was partially broken on Nov. 4, when Israel launched an attack in Gaza to destroy a defensive tunnel being dug by Hamas inside the wall that encloses Gaza.
So the cease fire was broken by Israel? No rockets were fired between June 20 and Nov. 3? Is that right, Mr. President? That's not what the New York Times said in December. The post June 20 count seems to be in the several score area.
What the heck is a defensive tunnel? If the defensive tunnel is used to import serious sized rockets into Gaza, is it still defensive? How do you tell the purpose of a tunnel from the outside?
The wall around Gaza is, I believe, an actual defensive wall, used to keep Palestinians from murdering Jewish citizens by using vest bombs.
Anyway, more duplicitous coverage of the situation from a leading Democrat. American Democrat Jewish persons, are you sure you're in the right party? Dennis Prager has real doubts.
