I've seen and heard a lot of total, utter bullshit in the last few weeks about how Teh Left luffs Hamas and has pictures of their favourite
"We all know very well how much hatred and contempt that the left have for the Jews in general"
So let me take this opportunity to state, without equivication, that any person - regardless of how righteous they think their fight is - who kills a civlian in cold blood is a murderer, and I hold no truck with them. That, obviously, includes Hamas.
Also, Israel? Seriously, dude, we get it. Big guns. Big bombs, not happy with Hamas. But why take it out on the UN?
But, to everyone in that region, I ask the following favour:
Stop. Blowing. Shit. Up.
Post coming up on why I'm no big fan of Israel's response, and why it has absolutely nothing to do with who's doing the bombing.
***UPDATE*** Iain Hall, the author of the above quote, has taken exception to me "selectively quoting" him and not including the source of the quote. I should have course have included the source of the quote, but his contention that I was "selectively quoting" I refute. The orginal sentence:
"We all know very well how much hatred and contempt that the left have for the Jews in general and the existence of Israel in particular, lets just hope that the voters of Wentworth are smart enough to see that even the more “moderate” tip of the leftist Ice-berg that wears a Ruddite face conceals a rather more nasty and extreme ideology"
not only reads like a paragraph rather than a sentence, but contains an irrelevant call for the voters of Wentworth to reject the ALP canditate. This far out from the election I didn't think it worth including.
However, since the point was in dispute, I thought it worth including the full "sentence"
