Something for the moral relativists to think about

Everybody (at least everybody in the anti-Israel, anti-War, pro-Hezbollah, pro-Palestinian side) is in full throttle shrei (Yiddish for “cry”) about Israel’s human rights abuses, at home and abroad. The kidnapping of the three Israeli soldiers is fully justified to some because Israel has in her prisons thousands of Palestinians who were tried and convicted for attempting to murder or murdering Israeli citizens. I rather wonder how these moral relativists can square their beliefs about Israelis as being Nazis when they’re brought face to face with Palestinian “justice”:

Palestinian gunmen, who identified themselves as members of the Islamic Jihad group, shoot a man in a public square in the West Bank town of Jenin Sunday Aug. 13, 2006. The man, who was executed in front of hundreds of people, was accused by the gunmen of giving information to Israeli authorities, helping them to kill two militants last week in a targeted attack, said witnesses and Islamic Jihad members. The victim was identified as Bassem Malah, 22, who worked in the Israeli Arab town of Umm al Fahm. (AP Photo/Mohammed Ballas)

By the way, considering how abysmally world news has been slanted against Israel, kudos to the AP (the AP! of all news organizations!) for making available a photograph demonstrating the how barbarously Israel’s enemies treat their own people.

    How do we know this isn’t a fake too?

    We don’t, of course. But the fact that several hundred people allegedly witnessed this event might lend it some credibility. But it’s true — there’s nothing to believe any more. All we can be thankful for is equal opportunity propaganda!

    The Arabs like firing squads. I prefer some other form of executions.

    Moral relativists square their beliefs? I don’t think they can do that. I heard a priest today talk about how Moses, Isaiah, Jesus and Mohammed are up in heaven loving one another, and how come the rest of us can’t do so. These are moral idiots.

    “..Israel’s human rights abuses, at home and abroad. The kidnapping of the three Israeli soldiers is fully justified to some because Israel has in her prisons thousands of Palestinians who were TRIED AND CONVICTED..” (Bookworm)(EMPHASES mine)

    An English friend of mine usually became incensed at sighting the accusation “human rights abuse,” since the term quite often emanated from those who were terrorist themselves. As here.

    Men and women have been rightfully judged by the laws of a civilised people, and sentenced– the case for these Palestinians (as Bookworm says). Who can dispute the final nature of this process?

    Certainly not the UN, who exists to support the rights and sovereignty of all its lawful member states. Nor ANYONE in the West, all of whom–especially for the Left– cry for justice and fair play. Which the Israelis here display.

    WE can judge those those then who employ this type of despicable rant to be guilty of a not-so-secret terrorism themselves. They oppose the idea of law, and hate the idea of justice.
    Theirs is the rule of the jungle.

    More importantly–and this certainly is pertinent to Israel’s case– these voices attack the right of a government and a people to defend themselves.

    WE must condemn without reservation the outlaw nature of all such assertions against Israel.

    Instead of tried and convicted, it should be tried, convicted, and executed by hanging.

    Israel’s been asking for hostages to be taken ever since they took prisoners and then exchanged them for hostages. Kill them. Then there are absolutely zero pretext for the enemy to take hostages.

    When there are no “humans” around, how can there be abuse of humans? The Arabs have figured this out, that is why Europe doesn’t blame the Arabs for human rights violations. Their humans disappear, Israel should make their Palestinian humans disappear as well.
