Lets see, +150 Rockets in 4 days and the UN says nothing.

But a strategic Airstrike on Hamas terrorists is justification for the UN to call for Israel to be brought up on “war crimes”

The UN is so freakin deplorably, wretchedly, lamentable.

I spit my coffee all over the keyboard when I read this today.

Israel’s targeting of a Hamas government office which caused serious casualties at a nearby wedding party was a “war crime” and those responsible should be punished, a United Nations official said Saturday.

John Dugard, UN special rapporteur on the human rights situation in the Palestinian territories, also slammed the killing of Palestinians in other attacks and the closing of border crossings.

“The killing of some 40 Palestinians in Gaza in the past week, the targeting of a Government office near a wedding party venue with what must have been foreseen loss of life and injury to many civilians, and the closure of all crossings into Gaza raise very serious questions about Israel’s respect for international law and its commitment to the peace process,” Dugard said in a statement.

By the way, Israellycool is still liveblogging from Israel keeping us up to date with what’s happening on the ground over there.

    The UN is another tool for promoting hate and confusing the good and the bad. I pity any nation that supports Islam before Israel. I also want to let all “peaceful Muslims” be aware that they are foolish to think that it is a peaceful faith. Read the Qouran. You are not a Muslim if you think you can co-exist with Christians and Jews. Either convert to Christianity or become a real Muslim and leave us. Praise be to God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and his begotten Son Jesus the Christ.

    Thank you for telling Muslims the truth about themselves. I’m sure conversions will rise.

    Hey, I read the koran, and it kinda makes sense. I want to convert (to islam)! What good are dead religions based on dead books (hinduism, buddism,christianity, judaism)? Judging by the deaths, floods, plagues and wars the loving biblical god has thrust upon the world (which allegedly he loved so much), the koran seems like a pic nic.

    The stage is set for the greatest event in human history, the climax of all human struggles, when the LORD will once and for all settle the controversy of Zion. It is with sadness though that we watch Islamo-fascism swallow up continents in rapid order. Funny how the Western world tolerates the astounding human rights violations in these oppressive places. Women have been thrust into the Middle Ages, while gays, Christians and moderate Muslims have been persecuted and slaughtered. People need to prepare for the coming of the LORD. It’s at our door.

    Gee, I think I’ll convert too…..where else could I become a rapist, thief, thug and murderer….and kick the crap out of my wife (or kill her sorry ass) and get away with it in the name of a false god/religion. Shit fire! Sounds primo to me! Do they give ya a free AK-47 when ya join up?

    Christianity?

    logic, that is an outright lie. No Christian leader would ever call for legitimizing abuse against a spouse. You obviously have been dhimmified, or are merely a coward unwilling to face anyone but those who would defend your right to be a coward. Islam was founded on terror (it IS in the quran), savagery, introduced slavery (white people BOUGHT slaves in africa from muslim traders, they did not kidnap them) and continues to exist in the most underdeveloped nations only because the people in those nations are ignorant, uneducated and unwilling to think for themselves.

    Regarding the UN, they are useful idiots, Libya is on the Security Council? What a joke, they used to be a top exporter of carbombers. Israel responded far too leniently, they should have carpet bombed gaza into rubble, but because they are not savages like the palis they only hit the rocket sites not hidden among civilians. Unlike muslims who would kill even 50 of their own to get at one Jew/American Soldier (it happens frequently in Iraq, a suicide bomber goes off, 50 Iraqis die, one soldier wounded/killed)

      Well, if you examine each religion, you can find pretty brutal suggestions. Islam is no different.
      BTW; The concept of "teror" is pretty new, and did not even exist before the late 18th century..
      Introducing slavery?! LOL! (Buying slaves, and kidnapping them.. Yeah, so different, like, slaves used to sell themselves willingly, riiight..)

      Calling someone terrorist, criminal, etc. Is only a matter of opinion.
      After the WW2, winnig states could be trialed as war criminals, with the same reasons they judged axis countries (I am not including all horrorful crimes against humanity, such as holocoust). Libya is in Security Council.. because, guess what, Libya is a legitimate country, and has a right to raise her voice.

      "Israel responded far too leniently, they should have carpet bombed gaza into rubble, but because they are not savages like the palis they only hit the rocket sites not hidden among civilians." Hmm… I am not denying that Palestinian forces are using completely lawful strategies and innocent, but.. Come on, even the beginig of the incidents started with the unlawful Israel occupancy f Jerusalem?

      So, what are you arguing? Arabs in Iraq are so desperate and misguided, do their actions legitimitize Israel's?

      Sorry for my spelling mistakes.
