That smart diplomacy never fails to produce results, huh? Fresh off her wine-tasting tour of Australia in order to avoid testifying about Benghazi, Hillary Clinton rushed to Israel for a photo op and a call for peace in the latest skirmish between Israel and the savages Tuesday.
Following her arrival in Israel, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reiterated at a press conference Tuesday that America’s commitment to Israel’s security is “rock solid,” adding that “the goal must be a durable outcome that promotes regional stability and advances the security and legitimate aspirations of Israelis and Palestinians alike.”
“The rocket attacks from terrorist organizations inside Gaza on Israeli cities and towns must end, and a broader calm restored,” Clinton said, adding that there are no substitutes for security and a just and lasting peace.
The savages responded by executing alleged spies and dragging one of them through the streets of Gaza.
Masked Hamas gunmen executed Palestinians suspected of collaborating with Israel — and at least one victim was dragged through the streets of Gaza City.
The grotesque scene yesterday accompanied some of the worst bloodshed of the weeklong war and came amid frantic efforts to negotiate a truce.
Witnesses said four masked men pulled six suspected informers from a van stopped at a busy intersection in Gaza City’s Sheik Radwan neighborhood.
But hey, we can work with these peace-seekers, rights? It’s only a small group of rabble-rousers, so the peace process must move forward.
A street mob quickly gathered around the bodies.
Witnesses said the mob stomped and spit on five of the bodies.
The sixth was tied to a motorcycle by a cable and dragged through the city as people screamed, “Spy!” and “Traitor!”
Gunmen on motorcycles rode along with the body in celebration of the executions.
They celebrated. How special.
In another peaceful gesture earlier today, a bus blew up in Tel Aviv. Fortunately nobody was killed.
A terrorist blew up a bus on Tel Aviv’s Shaul Hamelech Street around noon Wednesday. A total of 16 people were injured the attack, according to a spokesperson from the city’s Ichilov Hospital.
One person was severely injured, one moderately and one light to moderately. The remainder of the casualties were lightly injured or suffering shock.
None were in a life threatening condition, though two have been taken into surgery, the hospital spokesperson said.
Don’t forget though, Israel is the bad actor in all this. The media insists it’s so.
Double standards are par for the course in the Mideast and all the Jew-hating salons from Turtle Bay to Paris. While the hatred is shouted with a clenched fist on the smoldering streets of Gaza City, equally absurd claims are made by striped-pants diplomats and left-leaning sophisticates who insist Israel is guilty of “disproportionate” force because it uses its huge military advantage.
Their argument moves the goal posts. They tacitly accept Israel’s right to respond, but only up to a point. No matter its losses, the Jewish state must never “escalate” because that would be unfair.
Think about that: Affirmative action has come to the battlefield, where the results must be level for the sake of fairness. Coming soon, the demand that Israel turn over half of its weapons to its enemies. Perhaps Hamas would like an Iron Dome of its own?
Meanwhile, Syrian leaders slaughter tens of thousands of their fellow Muslims, but the world turns away. The dead opponents would have been featured by CNN if they had died at the hands of Israel.
Well, actually, that has already happened, to an extent.
The photo of a wounded Syrian child was posted here on October 28th. Early Monday morning, a Palestinian journalist named Hazem Balousha tweeted the photo with the misleading description “Pain in #Gaza.” It was retweeted more than 90 times, including by BBC Gaza correspondent Jon Donnison. Donnison added the word “Heartbreaking” and sent it to his 8,000 followers.
