If “Progressive Lefties” would just come down from their self righteousness high, perhaps they could discern the folly of their ways. The current carnage is almost 100% self inflicted. All Hamas has to do is stop the rockets, and there would be no need for the retaliation and the regrettable loss of life. Appropriating the phrase “We are all Jews” for the Palestinians is thus doubly offensive and inapplicable.
As I have said before, and I will say again since it is worth repeating, the Israelis would love to help the Palestinians prosper and be free. But it is hard to help people who want to kill you. Hamas is an Islamo fascist genocidal regime, just look at their Charter. They engage in child abuse everyday with their poisonous propoganda against Jews, and their death cult fixation that they drum into the minds of innocent little children.
Me thinks Progressive Lefties would do a great service if they started agitating against the real monsters in this world: Isis, Hamas, Hizbollah, Boko Horan, etc. The Jews just want to live in peace without the constant threat of extermination.
