Cynical Use of Civilians

One final comment on the ex President Carter’s visit to Israel and then let the subject be put where it should remain –buried 6ft underground! Alan Dershowitz writes that “It now turns out that Jimmy Carter--who is accusing the Jews of buying the silence of the media and politicians regarding criticism of Israel--has been bought and paid for by Arab money”

It seems that even as a peanut farmer, Carter had to be bailed out with money from Saudi sources. Writes Dershowitz “Carter and his Center have accepted millions of dollars from suspect sources, beginning with the bail-out of the Carter family peanut business in the late 1970s by BCCI, a now-defunct and virulently anti-Israeli bank indirectly controlled by the Saudi Royal family, and among whose principal investors is Carter's friend, Sheikh Zayed. Agha Hasan Abedi, the founder of the bank, gave Carter "$500,000 to help the former president establish his center...[and] more than $10 million to Mr. Carter's different projects."

Yes I could go on with this subject but let’s bury Carter’s visit finally.

Carter is obviously not prepared to open his eyes to the true nature of Hamas. After leaving Gaza to be run by the Palestinians for the Palestinians, we have seen that the charter calling for the destruction of Israel is very much alive and well. Rockets and other missiles are continuing to rain down on the civilian population.

In addition snipers are now making life impossible for the farmers in Nahal Oz and Nir Oz. Farmers are now resorting to working at night in order to avoid being seen by the snipers.

As was to be expected, Hamas having attempted to kill and maim as many soldiers and civilians as possible with their operations at the crossings points at Nahal Oz and Neve Shalom, which are used for transferring fuel and basic humanitarian aid, are now complaining through the United Nations relief organizations that the power plant will have to close down, sewage is not being collected and all the usual heart string pulling stories.

And finally, now that Egypt has seen the necessity of building a wall (yes, this time it is a wall) along the southern border of Gaza, where is the outcry.

Hamas is cynically using the general population whether they like it or not and then getting their proxies to cry “foul”.

Just when will the world wake up to this nonsensical situation?
