I ask because the UN Human Rights Council is publicly saying that Israel's use of their Iron Dome missile defense system may be a war crime because they're not giving it to the very group that they're defending themselves against! Only in a brain dead moron's mind (or a socialist's - but I repeat myself) would spending billions to develop a system to protect yourself and your citizens require you to give that advantage to a group sworn to destroy you and every other person of your kind (Hamas Charter).
Among the UN’s long bill of particulars against the beleaguered Jewish state comes the almost unbelievable accusation that Israel’s refusal to share its Iron Dome ballistic missile defense shield with the "governing authority" of Gaza – i.e. Hamas, the terror group created to pursue the extermination of the Jewish state and now waging a terrorist war against it – constitutes a war crime against the civilians of Gaza.But, Madam Brain Dead, isn't it the fault of the attackers when the people they're attacking eventually strike back?
The UN chairwoman criticized the U.S. for helping fund Israel's Iron Dome system which has saved countless Israeli and Palestinian lives. "No such protection has been provided to Gazans against the shelling," she said.
Just because Hamas fires rockets indiscriminately aimed at Israeli civilian population centers without provocation and fires them from within its own population centers does not “absolve” Israel from its own legal violations, Pillay told reporters Thursday.Tell me that there are higher mental functions going on in that so-called "brain". I think anyone with half a functioning brain - I've even heard it from UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon - knows that Hamas is surrounding all of their military hardware with civilians. With their own babies. It's the ultimate hostage situation; they're holding their own people hostage, hoping the Israelis kill them. It's like strapping each Hamas soldier with a dozen babies. Hamas is doing their absolute level best to guarantee civilian casualties. They want them. They count on them. They know that civilian casualties are the only way they can "win" this war. In the press. With the "low information voters", the useful idiots, and the rest of the media.
Marking the end of her contentious, six-year term as chairman of the notoriously anti-Israel UNHRC, Pillay saved her harshest condemnations for what she termed Israeli "targeting" of UN-run schools and hospitals in Gaza. She did not mention, nor was she reminded by any of the reporters present, that as of this writing, at least three UN-run schools in Gaza have been used as rocket warehouses, a gross violation of international law that clearly falls within the category of war crimes. Neither did she mention, nor was she reminded, that in at least two of the three cases cited above, the terror rockets found on UN property in Gaza were returned to Hamas by the UN.Regrettably, she's not alone in not supplying a gram of Zombie Chow. The Blaze reports today that a reporter for the Finnish "Helsingin Sanomat" filed a report on a missile being fired at Israel from a hospital, the same hospital hit by a Hamas missile earlier this week, a missile that Israel's IDF recorded the launch and impact of. But instead of thanking Israeli news reports for using her story and byline, the brain dead reporter was offended that her report was being used by Israel. Gosh, we sure wouldn't want any truth getting out now, would we?

In the classic mindset of the left all of human interaction comes down to one principle: there are oppressors and there are victims. Israel is a civilized, advanced culture, which places a social premium on knowledge and accomplishment. The Palestinians are not - it's no small coincidence that the Nigerian Muslim terrorist group with similar beliefs as Hamas calls themselves Boko Haram: Western Education is a sin. Therefore, in leftist view, Israel must be the oppressor and the Palestinians the oppressed victims. It's the only way the doctrinaire leftists and most media (again, I repeat myself) are going to structure this story.
