This really bothers me. Max suggested I have O.C.D., which really has very little to do with noticing inconsistencies of details. My observations, agree or disagree, or agree to disagree or decide to Censor it, completely inconsistent with all the passionate comments supporting freedom of speech.
Photo One. Sad Children. Are they looking at the woman laying down? No. Any sign of empathy towards her? No. They look like they’ve been yelled at, scolded, they are more bewildered, confused, their expressions are very telling. What really irritates me is the use of children as props. You may say these children are not props. Fine argue that point but don’t justify the use of children for advancing a political cause. It’s moronic, insane to do that to children. These children. Look at their faces. Really look at their faces and see if you can discern what emotion is being portrayed. Do these children look like they want to be in this photo? They are looking at someone, not the cameraman and not the Women in the bed. So, who are they looking at? Why are they standing so awkwardly?
Next. Detail. Bullet from an M-16 “grazes her forehead” call it a “flesh wound.”
Take your finger and touch your own forehead. Does it feel fleshy to you? No. If somebody struck you in the forehead with their elbow you would bleed profusely and require stitches. Miracle of miracles. This woman was “grazed” by a bullet from an M-16 Rifle. Uhm. Anyone know anything about M-16 Rifles? Nope. I didn’t think so.
So, I’m supposed to believe that Israeli soldiers are taking shots at Palestinians while they are harvesting their wheat…right? They are taking shots with an M-16 and the harvesters just stay out in the fields harvesting, because that just makes sense, right?
Some of you hate it when I ask questions. You just consume every little story without much examination, without hesitancy, because it’s all for the bigger picture.
What happens to an engine that gets hit by a bullet? Anyone? Bueller, Ferris Bueller?
What happens to an outboard engine on a boat that gets hit by bullets? Fuel, combustion, spark, heat, bullet(s)? K-Boom! That’s my sound effect. Explosion.
Again, we are asked to believe that Israelis are randomly shooting at people in boats. They wouldn’t approach a boat and say anything, right? They just take shots, M-16, indiscriminately, but hitting an engine because you see, the gentleman in the picture, holding out his hand to show bullets which have a “full metal jacket.” Do you know what that means? They haven’t been fired. Just an annoying detail. Inconsistencies and then strong consistencies. Maybe, just maybe, their are a couple of soldiers who lose it one day and start taking shots at civilians. That happens, usually from a tower somewhere someone is sniping because they lost their mind. However, (we) are supposed to believe that this is a common practice. This is regular stuff. Just shoot at Palestinians. I don’t believe it.
Why? Soldiers are trained so they don’t have to think too much. They react to various scenarios. Acting outside of those scenarios is largely unheard of unless (someone is genuinely mentally ill, PTSD, on serious drugs, etc) Here in two different locations, the same activity is taking place. Extremely unusual. Incredible, as in I’m questioning the credibility of these two stories.
Israel is known for dropping letter bombs advising civilians three days in advance that they will be targeting military outposts in a civilian area. They warn people to get out,, get to safety. Yet, I’m supposed to believe that there are a number of Israeli militia who are acting like a bunch of drunken cowboys from the Wild West. It just doesn’t add up. Being in the military is not joining a College frat house. It isn’t like that.
Oh well, people who throw stones shouldn’t live in glass houses. Actually, even if you don’t throw stones, if you live in a glass house there are fingerprints everywhere…that would be a lot to clean up…
